Celebrating Erin's birthday at our friends house.

Jude says he loves his new Christmas present, Nana and Poppa!

Jude helping Daddy put P-yton's dresser together.



Jude and Jackson are now into rolling all over the floor and on top of each other. They are such little boys!

Erin and I are finding ourselves saying "Jude, don't step on Jacksons face" and "Jackson, don't sit on Jude."

Avery tired boy eating Chipolte for dinner last night.

*Jude no longer smiles for the camera, FYI*
Helping with Christmas decorations.




Every year we write something and pack it away for the year. Apparently I felt very blessed last year. Still do. :)
 Random pictures I found on camera. :)

Gobble Gobble

So I figured out how to fix my photo issue. Apparently Google only gives someone 1gb of storage for free. I had two options. I could delete past posts and pictures or I could pay $2.50 a month for a on more storage. I've had this blog since 2008, I wasn't deleting anything. So, $2.50 later, here we are.... Thanksgiving 2012.
 



We spent our Thanksgiving with Erin and her family. We had a feast for lunch and had a really enjoyable day.
Daddy and Jude playing.

16 Weeks/ Jude pictures



Buddy boy having a great time at a play date.

We had our recipe play date, which was fantastic. Another mom announced she's pregnant!! This is some of the leftovers that everyone brought. Crescent roll casserole (mine), swedish meatballs, chili, flat bread chicken pizza, brie and bread, homemade cookies, and chili con queso dip (mine). There was also taco soup, which was fabulous!

Jude and Jackson playing.

We're watching Roxy for the week.

While I was pregnant with Jude, I knew I wanted an Ergo baby carrier, but it was really expensive and we needed so many more things. I decided to get the baby Bjorn, which I loved, but was very upset the day Jude got too big for it. I love wearing him. It's one of my most favorite things to do as a mom. Once he grew out of the Bjorn I told John I would like an Ergo baby. I had read so many wonderful things about it and I knew I could wear Jude on my back.
 
Shortly after finding out I was pregnant with P-yton, I told John we were getting one. Jude is getting too heavy to hold for long periods of time and we all know this baby likes me to hold him. Anyway, last weekend we ordered one (Thanks, Linda and Dad!), and it just arrived in the mail. I knew I would love it, but I LOVE it. I can carry Jude on my back for long periods of time and not feel a thing. And of course Jude is in heaven being carried by me.
 
It's going to be a hard day for Jude when he has to graduate from being carried and watching the new baby being toted around on me. :)
 
Anyway, here are a couple of pictures...
Wearing Jude on my back. He loves it!

Showing how P-yton will be worn in the front.

15/16 weeks. You can see belly better in next picture, but this one has Jude in it. :)

P-yton is getting big!! She/he popped this last week.
 
 
How far along: 16 Weeks.
Total weight gain: 1lb

Maternity clothes: No, but I'm in yoga pants. If I wear jeans I have to wear the belly band. I'm about to switch to maternity shirts only because mine are getting short in the front.
Sleep: I'm sleeping my heart out right now. I can't seem to ever want to stay awake, which is a challenge with a 1 year old.
Best Moment this week: Our recipe play date!
Movement: Yes. This baby is moving around like crazy now. His/her feet are right by my belly button and baby is kicking constantly.
Gender: Won't know for another 24 weeks!
Labor signs: Hopefully not for another 24 weeks.
Belly button: In
Cravings: Not much.
What I miss: I'm already mourning my one-on-one time with Jude. Love this boy.
Stretch Marks: None.
What baby is up to: Hanging out. Growing. Moving.
What I am looking forward to this week: Two fun play dates scheduled and Thanksgiving!

A friend loaned me her maternity clothes. I'm now set for winter!
 
 
Jude and Evan
 My dad and Linda came visit us for a couple of days. We had a great time and of course I forgot to take pictures. I'm getting really bad at that because Jude is always on the move and I'm constantly following him. Anyway, it was nice to see them and I know they loved seeing Jude! :)
Watching Poppa and Nana's plane landing.
 
They landed and Jude was excited!
 
Peek-a-boo.
 
Poppa and Jude playing.
 
Jude had an appointment to get his flu shot today. He enjoys the waiting room.
 
Walking around. Jude has a new word. We don't know if it's "shit" or "sit". Anyway, he was walking around the waiting room, with people in it, saying one of those 2 words really loud. So, the cursing stops today in our house. :)

Randon Pictures/ Our Weekend /14 Weeks



Jude running in the play area at the mall.

Cheerios and eggs for breakfast.

We babysat Landon for a couple of hours while his momma had a doctors appt. (His mom had her baby today!) and he and Jude were playing with the musical instruments.

Jude loves the shakers.

Reading a book with Mommy.

Gorgeous smile.

My craving that lasted one night. Now we have a bunch of donuts left and it makes me want to gag thinking about them.

I was sitting on the couch today while John scrubbed the stove and inside the refrigerator.

Daddy watching the football game and Jude playing. We had just gotten back from Evan's birthday party.

Cheese

So cute.

We bought these balls for him to play in his pool with....

...but he decided to play with the box instead.

Daddy and Jude

Climb in...

...climb out.

Happy baby. (We don't have random pill bottles laying around, but the one behind him is filled with rocks and he uses it as a noise maker.)

Heyyy

I was trying to get Jude to say "meow" and Riley thought there was a cat somewhere and was getting up to go check.

Sweet ole' Riley


Mommy and baby

*swoon*

Jude playing.
