Andrew Turned TWO!!!

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."

Surprise Shower

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!

It's a.....

So we had our 20 week sono appointment today. Everything looked great! Baby is healthy and getting big. Our sono tech did a great job in keeping it a secret from us since we (mostly Curt) didn't want to know.
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!

Lake House

Here are a few photos from our time in CT:

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:

CT Wedding

We had the privilege of witnessing my sister in-law, Cary, and my new brother in-law, James, getting married this last weekend in CT. It was so pretty! They held it at an eco-friendly farmhouse and the ceremony was outside in front. The flowers were awesome and of course she looked GREAT!!!!!! It was so special and everything went smoothly, despite a couple hiccups!
Andrew had a blast and did really well. He was the ring bearer (with some help from Daddy). He loved watching everyone dance and and even got on the dance floor himself a couple times.

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!

Pregnancy Update

Here is a picture from last week that I am finally updating. We also go today for our 20 week sonogram. Yea! So I will post an update on that later.

Chuck E. Cheese

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!

Andrew's 1st "professional" Hair Cut

Andrew was such a good sport and looked so handsome! Now, if only I can fix it like she does!

Time Flies!

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!

Boys-Blogger Ammie said...

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.

Girls- Stacey - Elle Belle said...

My favorite meal is italian beef in the crock pot. I'd like to win the girl set!

Neutral-Brittany said...

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!!!!

Constraint Induced Therapy (CIP)

Next Tuesday we go for our first appoint to get Andrew casted with a bivalve cast. It means that it will go on his good arm and we can take it off at the end of the day. I am a little nervous and excited all at the same time. I know he is going to HATE it and am not looking forward to it but I know it will help him greatly to use "Righty". So any advice you who have already done this have for us is greatly appreciated. Thanks!! (You can see how tight and fisted he is in these pics)

Just a heads up

Sew, Mama, Sew! is hosting another Giveaway Day! This is a really fun event and I encourage everyone that can to participate. The list of participating blogs will be posted on May 27. SMS is hoping to make things run more smoothly this time around by a) extending the time that each giveaway is open, and b) arranging their list of participating blogs by what is being given away.

Good times!

I just got back from a long weekend with my sister and brother-in-law in Florida, and it was great! My sister had a beautiful baby girl, Zoli, in February and I had not yet met her.

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!)

Here is my sis while working hard at the sewing machine (not happy with what we were doing):

My bro-in-law also spoiled me with lots of yummy food (thanks David!):

Love you guys and can't wait to see you all again soon!
