Dad and Dec sleepover (almost)

I say almost because it didn't go quite as planned! BC has been wanting to have a little sleep over with Declan in his room for awhile now, so last weekend he moved the guest bedroom mattress into Dec's room! Dec really didn't know what to think, but liked climbing up on the mattress and taking out all of his toys. They even tried to build a fort, but the sheet wouldn't stay up:) I gave my good night kisses, turned off the light and shut the door...a little while later I could hear Declan and he was clearly not happy! After about a half hour all was quiet, so I went to bed, but soon heard him crying:( At the point Dad brought him in our room...I guess he's just not ready for a sleep over yet, but it sure was sweet of Dad to try!

Story Time

We've been going to the library for story time for the past couple of's so much fun, they sing songs, read books and have little activities. Declan wasn't too sure about it the first time, but has really warmed up to it. Today was all about snowmen or "noman" according to Declan! Each kid got to help dress the snowman, Declan got the carrot nose! At the end Miss Patty brings out a box of books for the kids to read. Of course he found the one with lots of clocks in it! (the video works, just push play)

20 months old!!

Wow! Our boo is 20 months old today! We can't believe how much he grows and develops in just a month. His vocabulary amazes us everyday..."table" is his new word and he says it perfectly! He's been linking 2 to 3 words together lately like, "I did" or "I turn on", so awesome:) He's still using sign language everyday and can put "more" and "please" together. Fruit seems to be his new favorite food...all sorts of fruit, bananas (nannies), grapes, apples, strawberries and blueberries. He can eat a pint of blueberries in 2 days, no kidding, he loves them that much! His last swimming lesson is tonight, we're so glad because he just doesn't like it! He does so great in the water when it's not class though:) Hop on Pop is his favorite book and we read every night before bed. Blue's Clues is his new favorite show, it's on at 7 am and I think that's why he gets up at 6:30 am, he doesn't want to miss an episode! He's been pointing out babies where ever we go and will pat my tummy and say "baby"...let's hope he stays this excited about the baby come July! Well, the count down is on, only 4 more months til he's 2! We love you boo!

Here he is with the tower he built in the refrigerator (look behind him) and at dinner last night with mashed potatoes on his nose and chicken (bawk bawk) in his mouth! He even ate broccoli last night!

Swimming Lessons: Take 5

Dad got in with Declan on Tuesday night at swim lessons, which gave me a chance to take some videos and pictures. Only one more lesson left! I think Declan will be pleased, he's really not into them. We think he just doesn't like being told what to do! He can't do the backstroke yet, but he did learn how to hang on the wall all by himself:)

Gym Rats:)

This morning we beat the snow and all met up for a play date at Gymnastics Unlimited (you can imagine how excited I was to be there, but it was torture not being able to flip or go on the bars). They have an open gym for $5 and you get to go in and let your kids loose! Declan loved running up and down the tumble track (he'll tumble down it one of these days) and he even walked across the beam:) I was so proud!

Here his is on the rings, not quite an iron cross yet:) And on the "high" bar and the beam with mama:)

Dr visit & Ultrasound (18 weeks)

This morning we had an ultrasound and a doctor's appointment! Little Boo 2 is a mover and a shaker! Even the technician couldn't believe how much the baby was moving. Everything looks wonderful, we're measuring a little more than a week ahead, which means we most likely have a big baby growing! They're not going to change our due date (July 4), but we'll have another ultrasound closer to the due date to see how big Boo 2 is and we'll go from there! Today is the day we could have found out if Boo 2 is a boy or girl, but only the technician knows:) Declan loved hearing the heart beat, he kept telling her "more, more"!! We go back in March for another check up:)

Monkey Joe's Videos

A little look at the all the fun they had:)

Monkey Joe's + 4

Last Friday Declan and 3 of his little lady friends met at Monkey Joe's for a play date. None of us had been before, so we weren't sure what to expect, but after settling in we had a really great time! It didn't take Dec too long to get comfortable and the hang of climbing in and out and getting himself up to the slide (I had to get in a couple of times to show him!). We were there for over 2 hours and the kids loved it:)
