I forgot to mention how wonderful my sweet husband is. He got me a beautiful necklace from Stella & Dot. If you have not heard of Stella & Dot your life is not complete (jk). I love love love it and was so impressed with the quality of it! I've gotten more compliments on it! Click the link below to go to my friend Natalie's page (she sells it) and check out all the wonderful jewelry they have! Ladies...go fall in love!
I think this blog should really be called "Here we go again" but keep reading and you'll see why I didn't title it that.
I'm sure most of you don't want to read a long blog that just rambles and never gets to what you are wanting to know so I'll just say it and you can choose to keep reading haha.
WE'RE HAVING A BABY!!!
When did find out?? On Valentine's Day...it was the best Valentines day that we have had! We got to celebrate our love, having our sweet little Hutch AND having another little love. We are so thrilled to announce this fun news and can't wait to share more with you.
We don't know much right now other than...I'm pregnant. We went to the doctor today hoping for a sonogram but didn't get that. I just got pricked with a needle and had some blood taken (I'm used to this by now). We do have a sono scheduled for next week so we will have more details then.
I know you're probably thinking "already??" but if you know us then you know that this is not very surprising. We want a large family and want our children to be close in age. So by the time this sweet baby joins us Hutch will be about one and a half years old. Pretty good age gap in our eyes.
Now, last time we found out we were pregnant we also found out we were moving...
Stay tuned, you never know what God has in store for our little family.
Here are some pictures of our very fun Valentine's Day.
I don't know why I called this post "Daily Deal" because I'm not going to start doing daily deals but I just need to share this with everyone!
I found a company called Canvas People. They print out your pictures on canvases. I have had two done and am very impressed with it! The best part about it?? They have deals every now and then where you can get an 8 x 10 canvas for free!! FREE!! FREE!! FREE!!
Canvases are not cheap! You can't beat that! If you are on Facebook and like them as a friend you can get really great deals! Watch them regularly and they will have extreme discounts on all canvas sizes. We just got one in of Hutch that is a 16 X 20! I love it! I plan on getting more in other sizes to put around it!
Go now and get $25 off and free shipping for Valentines day!!! GO GO GO
9 months old! That means that in 3 very short months our little baby will be 1!!! He has his very first ear infection as we speak and it breaks my heart. I had to get him out in the horribly cold weather yesterday to go to the doctor. As much as I hate him feeling bad...I LOVE all the sweet cuddly moments I have gotten from him. I can tell his ear is hurting him a lot during the day and so all he wants is to be held or be sitting right next to me. He has woken up a couple of mornings around 4 but will go back to sleep after about an hour of rocking until 9 or 10. I sure am ready for him to get over this thing.
Since we had to drive an hour to see his doctor I figured I might as well have them take all his measurements for fun. I didn't get all of them but our little man is still a tall string bean. He is 18.7 lbs and 30 inches long!
At 9 months our boy is:
Crawling, crawling and more crawling
He pulls up on everything and slooooowly takes himself back to the ground *pretty cute*
He just started throwing things that we hand him. Example: we were sitting at the computer and I gave him a marker that I always let him hold on to only to have him lean over and drop it on the floor. So, I picked it up, gave it back to him....and he proceeded to lean over to drop it not just once, twice, or three times but multiple times. After that it became everything I gave him.
He still only says "mama"
When he wants attention he will ever so slightly bump his head on something and start crying...I've seen it. :)
The dogs are getting so good with him. Hattie still lets him crawl/pull/love on her, Lola is much better with him, and well Wes is getting there.
He still knows where the dog's water bowl is...and loves it.
He is able to put his basketballs in the hoop of his little toy.
He loves to take blocks out of a bucket and put them back in.
When he makes one of his toys play a song or make a noise he looks around with the biggest smile on his sweet face to see who else hears it.
He is interested in a book until I read the first page...then he's done.
He has 6 sweet little teeth.
He is still on my milk but eats just about anything we give him. Correction...he will try anything we give him. If he doesn't like it he refuses to eat it. I'm still trying to find different big boy meals that he can eat. Any advice is welcomed.
He loves yogurt, just about all fruit, butternut squash when he is in the mood, sweet potatoes, chicken spaghetti, any kind of rice and much more
He pretty much refuses to eat any pureed food..he likes to chew.
I made him homemade chicken noodle soup when he started to get sick but he refused to eat it...so Shawn and I did.
Hmm...I think that's it. Here is our little basketball player!
My mom, sister and Brenden visited this past weekend and we had so much fun! The weather was perfect when they got here on Friday so we went to the park to play. Of course, I had my camera in hand (which I believe I fixed...for now anyways.. YAY). Brenden and Uncle Shawn had lots of fun going down the slides and running all over the place.
Shawn got "B"(Brenden) to believe that there were alligators living in one of our closets...B wouldn't drop it after that. He kept telling my sister that if she wasn't careful the alligators were going to bite her in the "bobo". It was pretty cute.
We went to the Wheeler County stock show Saturday morning and saw the pig show. It was pretty neat. I haven't been to a pig show since high school when Shawn showed and am convinced that our children will be doing some sort of showing when they reach the right age. I didn't think I would like it but I caught myself really getting into it.
After that we just hung out at the house...it started to get pretty cool outside so we didn't have much to do. So, I showed my sister how to do some things in photoshop and here's what we got...
