Last weekend ( I know I am late at writing this), we celebrated Andrew's 2nd birthday! We are so thankful for all our family and friends that shared this exciting time with us! Thank you all so much for everything! Everything was perfect! I am such a bad mom though, I have no pictures from the party! So after the Grandma's sends me some, I will share.
These are just a few from our Thanksgiving and pics w/Santa:
Andrew also had Botox done last week and they say it takes about a week to take effect Already we are seeing improvement. It is not a permanent fix, but it should help stretch out his muscles and help him use "righty."

My girlfriends gave me a Surprise Baby Shower today, and boy (or I should say 'girl') was I surprised! I am so blessed to have such a great group of girlfriends! They even surprised me with my mom being there! It was great! Thank you all so such, I love you all!
I am 29 weeks now and definitely getting bigger! It is now impossible to tie my shoes, paint my toes, and almost impossible to bend down. I guess you forget these things, cause we end up doing it all over again!

Here are a couple new videos of Andrew.
This is when we went and rode the kids train, and Andrew loved it! He was a little nervous but was waving to everyone by the end. This is the only video/picture I have cause I didn't charge the battery!
This has become a regular night time activity. He sure loves playing with his daddy!
This is a hint at what is in the next post!

After as I was talking to the nurses and joking with them that my husband is the one that wanted to wait, and that I wanted to find out, and we weren't going to find out because of him. It was then that one of them decided to go ask the sono tech and then come and whisper it in my ear! Needless to say I wasn't asked if I wanted to know, but now we know! So the moment you all have been waiting for........
It's a GIRL!!!! Praise God she is healthy and we couldn't have asked for anything more than that!
No trip is complete without going picking... this time was apples and blueberries. Andrew ate one blueberry for every two we picked!
Daddy and Drew went on a kayak ride:
Playing in the water:
And of course Curt had a blast flying his plane:
We were so blessed to have shared in this special time with our family! We love you Aunt Cary and Uncle James! Have fun in the Galapagos!
I am a big fan of Chuck E. Cheese! For those of you that don't know, I used to work there when I was in H.S. So we decided to have a Family Fun Night there last weekend.
It was great cause we ran into some dear friends of ours from my old job.
Andrew had a blast ridding all the movable rides and watching Daddy shoot the bad guys!

Wow! Has it really been more than a month since I last posted? Yikes!
To update you on Drew, he has been doing really good! He has stopped PT, due to meeting all the milestones and goals she had for him (at this time)! Praise God! He is walking all the time and is getting really good at it too! Started speech therapy last week, so we will be working on him talking more. He can say a few things and it always amazes me how fast he picks it up.
We have been super busy (as usual) this summer with visiting family in CT, family in OK, and friends and family in FL. It has been great getting to see everyone.
Also I don't think we have officially blogged: WE ARE PREGNANT! 13 weeks! So Drew is going to be a big brother come January. So far the pregnancy is going well. We are glad to be past the first trimester.
Yes, our house is still for sell. We are waiting on the Lords timing and for the perfect buyer. It helps that we aren't in any big rush, but it would be nice to "move" on if that were we are supposed to be.
So, this is where we are at. I will try to keep you updated sooner!

These are cute cute cute. I would choose the boy colors. At five months, we seem to be using more burp cloths!
I am liking vegetarian food lately, and I found a tasty veggie egg roll recipe. Mmmm.

I love the boy ones, but since my sister is being patient and leaving it a surprise until birth, I'm going to have to go with gender neutral.
I like making pasta. I know it sounds weird, but try this sometime: pasta with asparagus. Cut the asparagus and cook it with some minced garlic in lemon or orange fancy soda. You know, like San Pelligrino or the kind that come in glass bottles (Target has some great ones). The soda makes the asparugus slightly sweet so that even my four year old will eat it! My husband, however, will not.
Hope you enjoy!!!!

A BIG thank you to Grandma Chadwick for coming and watching Drew for us!
I was able to get my baby fix in and learn some new sewing skills while there. We made a few things I will post later but check out this onesie: (Look at how cute she is too!)
