Baby Blake

Blake Alexander at 20 weeks
Blake Alexander at 33 weeks

I went to the doctor today and we decided to go for a scheduled c-section. Due to my baby's ever growing size and the fact that I want little complications as possible with this baby, we decided this was the best way to go. I have another ultrasound next week due to me measuring 4 weeks ahead. It's so weird to think that if this was Jonny, I would be having him next week! This time last pregnancy I had elephantitis in my ankles. Or shall I say cankles (cow ankles). I feel better and my blood pressure is down. Now if only my lower back would stop hurting and I could sleep more. But no pregnancy is comfortable so I am doing good. The baby is healthy and so am I. So far I have gained 6 pounds. And four of them was today's visit (grr). Praising Jesus that all is well and praying Blake comes safely into the world!

These Boots

"These boots are made for walking, and that's just what they'll do. One of these days these boots are going to walk all over you."
I want to scrap some pictures of Jonny in his daddy's shoes, and he was so willing gto jummp into these (with daddy's help) and take pictures. Now that he says "cheese" (he makes his scrap bookin' mama so proud) he makes picture taking so much easier.. He did a great job and thought the boots were fun, until he tried to walk!!

My Adventurer

I absolutely love this pic! I came out to see what the boys were doing, and Seth had grabbed his pirate gear and dressed them both up like pirates!! I laughed so hard as I went to grab my camera!! This is so cute!
We are still trying to help him dress.. His daddy put his pants on his head... Poor baby.

This is not him climbing into the dryer but climbing out before he is caught. He was a little too late though. I got a picture as fast as I could.

Our exciting day...well, sort of...

Huge storage bin, perfect for trips. I think we need a van now...
in the corner you can see a purple box, those are diapers, they were on sale too!

We had such a great day!! First, Tasha called me to tell me about a store that was having amazing sales. Erica had bought shoes for her son and Tash thought I'd be interested. Indeed, I was. Well, mom, the boys, and I travelled to this store. We saw some amazing sales. One was this duo stroller!! I was wanting one like this, because I'd been researching strollers, and here it was!! On sale!! I bought it for $111!! It was 140. SO after my nap when I was home, I put the stroller together. Jonny kept trying to push it around while I was still adding the attachments! He really enjoyed it. While I was doing this, my darling husband was putting in the shelves in our linen closet. Mind you, they have been there for almost a year with a post-it note that read "hang me" attached. (I really think the NOTE had dust on it) Anyways, he finally tackled the job and now I have shelves, not huge "please cut me" shelves that stand in my way and dominate the bathroom! Now one can move as freely as they so desire. He even changed the light bulbs!! He's amazing!!

Sand Time

Playing in the great outdoors

Saying that Jonathan loves to play outside, is well, an understatement. He loves being outside! Seth and Sarah Stevens (who are many years older than him) love playing with him too. He had so much fun in that sand and made a huge mess! Later, I gave him a ride around in the wagon. Mr. independent wanted to push himself in the wagon, but soon learned that it was impossible. When I finally was able to bring him indoors, he took a very long nap. I guess playing is hard work..

Baby number 2 is on the way. Actually I'm about 2 months along so it will be a long time till the baby comes. We are so excited and trying to explain it to Jonny but he is so not getting it.. (i wonder why) :) We are praying that all goes well. Right now I have the common fears of losing the baby and having the same problems from the last pregnancy. Oh, by the way, the stuff on the couch is from a trip we just got back from, my sister's wedding. :) I felt that I needed to explain the slight clutter. Especially for my in-laws :)

Our family :)

You can tell that Jonathan HATES being held like this and definitely does not being smushed between us. Jonathan is growing amazingly fast. He started walking before his birthday, but during Christmas break, like December 20th and on, he's been walking full time! Mysteriously enough, more things are ending up broken around my house. He's climbing stairs (see Jackie's blog) and he's enjoying the more independent lifestyle. Before I know it he will be moving out of the house. :) He's fun though... oh! He has finally said "dada" :) Previous to dada his total words have been: mama, nana, baba, bubba, hi, and bye bye.
