Fun Times

At Cuppies & Joe yesterday afternoon. YUM-O! My mom was there too but she wouldn't let us take her picture...
Until I snuck this one. Ethan and nana are looking for objects in his search and find book. He loves that thing! And he's pretty good at finding everything on the list.
Zann took this picture of Molly and she looks like she's laughing. I couldn't stop laughing when I saw it b/c it's too funny!
And what do you do on a Saturday morning when it's cold and windy outside? Why put together a gigantic Noah's Ark floor puzzle of course! Well maybe it's not that gigantic. But it's sure fun.

Our happy boy despite a restless night of coughing. We have the most powerful cough medicine insurance money can buy but it doesn't put a dent in this kid's coughing. Anyone have any home remedies for coughing? We already do Vick's on the bottom of his feet. I'm so ready for allergy season to be over and done with.
Stay warm if you live in OK. We're staying in today. I'm not a fan of the wind or cold.

Fluffy the Fake Barking Dog

Valentine's Day has come and gone. We had a lovely evening planned last Friday but the stomach bug invaded and I was forced to lay on the couch ALL weekend. It was not fun. We did manage to make it to Build-A-Bear on Saturday (along with everyone else in town) to make our annual Valentine animal. Ethan decided he wanted a puppy this year and he named him Fluffy. If you remember last year, he made a dinosaur and named him Roar Roar. He sleeps with both of these large animals.

Fluffy barks when you squeeze his right arm and Molly can't stand it. She goes into attack mode when Ethan taunts her with the fake barking dog. It's pretty funny.

Ethan reading to Fluffy.

While I was recovering from whatever illness I had, Zann got to spend some quality time with Ethan and taught him a few new tricks. He now knows how to spell his name! He can spell it using his alphabet puzzle letters and by saying the letters in order. So smart! He's growing up so fast and I know he's going to be the best big brother! Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Time Out

It has been one of those days. Ethan woke up at 6:45 and has been in a bad mood since. Mommy's in a bad mood too so it's been real fun at our house. These pregnancy hormones are not fun. I'm on an emotional roller coaster. Oh and did I mention today was a no nap day? The mowers decided to come mow our dead grass at the exact moment my child was dozing off. His dreams of monster trucks quickly turned into a nightmare and this mom's afternoon was ruined.

Ethan wanted to play with his stamps. I was in the middle of something so I asked him to wait a minute so I could finish what I was doing. He decided to start without me. He covered his exposed skin with stamps. He even had ink on his lips. This little artist then got a time out.

But with a face like this it's hard to stay mad long.
Lovely outfit.
Ok so enough with the complaining. Yes it was a horrible day but it could have been worse. So what if I got to spend some more time with my son. We did get to make some really cute valentines. He'll just go to bed early tonight and we'll hope for a better day tomorrow.

I had an appointment yesterday with my OB's PA and convinced her to do an ultrasound instead of the Doppler. I got to see baby M and this child is already super active. I felt Ethan around 17-18 weeks and he moved constantly. He came out kicking and hasn't stopped since. I have a feeling this one is going to be the exact same! Does that mean we're having another boy? Guess we'll find out at the end of August. Anyway...just wanted to post this pic...mainly for the grandparents. Now I can't wait to see baby M again in a few weeks at the big ultrasound. I just love seeing our baby!
We're looking forward to some warmer weather! I can't wait to get outside again!
