Charlie - 20 months

Charlie was officially 20 months old last Wednesday.  Unfortunately, he came down with pink eye so we spent Wednesday - Friday at home (sleeping late and watching cartoons).  The kid is so funny!  He definitely keeps us laughing and on our toes.  He is repeating EVERYTHING!!!  It seems like in just the last 2 months his vocabulary has doubled.  He gets overly excited about tractors, trains, school buses, and airplanes.  He's actually trying to figure out how everything works.  I'll catch him turning his tractor over and trying to "work" on it, or he'll line up all of his trucks on the floor and get so excited when he gets them just right.  We bought him his first tricycle over the weekend and he wakes up in the mornings asking for his "bike".  He's growing up extremely too fast!  We are working on getting him ready for his new baby brother/sister.  He kisses my stomach every night and tells the baby night-night.  He loves saying his prayers before he goes to bed which makes me very happy!  We took him to the fair last week and he absolutely loved the rides and animals (especially the cows).  I wasn't sure how he would do on the rides but he never cried and at worst, got a nervous grin on his face once a few of them started.  We went on 4 different days so I was definitely glad to see the fair leave - but we are looking forward to next year.

8 Week Baby Update

We had our 2nd ultrasound on Friday and everything went well.  We saw the heartbeat and the baby is measuring 7 weeks, 6 days.  I have been extremely sick the last few weeks so I'm hoping this passes soon.  They kept my due date on May 29th and our next appt. is in 4 weeks.

Cameron's 20th Birthday

We celebrated my brother's 20th birthday last week.  We had a small family get-together at my house.  Cameron is 10 years younger than me but so mature for his age.  He is such a hard-worker and always the life of the party.  The boy can come up with the most wittiest comments and will keep you laughing for hours.  I hope you had a great birthday Bud!  I love you very much!

Our Newest Addition

We are so happy that our new pool is finally finished.  We were only able to enjoy it a couple of times before it got too cool, so we'll have to wait until next summer to really break it in.
