34+ weeks

Wednesday was our 34 week check up and it was a great visit! We gained another pound and are actually measuring a week ahead again (I'm convinced there's a big baby in there). Declan got help with the heartbeat, he loves hearing it and so do I:) We scheduled an ultra sound in a few weeks just to see where we are. Not too much longer til Boo 2 gets here!

Cooling off!

BC and I were doing some planting in the backyard the other night and Declan was busy "watering" the tree, until he figured out how fun it was take a "shower"! After the clothes came off the fun really began:)

This morning we met Ali, Maggie and Laura along with Tessa, Lizzie, baby Katherine, Mary and baby David at the Zoo! I have been talking to Declan about the zoo since Friday and he was very excited to see the animals, especially the elephants, monkeys and snakes! It was a hot, hot morning with all of the little ones, but they did great. On the way home (before he fell asleep) he told me he liked the rhinos and the giraffes:)
Face toots with Lizzie!
So tired:)

Uncle Andy's 30th Bday!

Saturday we drove up to the lake for Uncle Andy's surprise 30th birthday party. The weather was quite yucky when we first got there, but ended up clearing up for a really nice afternoon. Declan had fun playing with his cousins Emmie and Erin...both he and Erin took a spill off the dock into the lake! Thank goodness for life jackets and BC, who quickly fished them out:) He enjoyed a couple of boat rides and loved that he got to eat Doritos (he never gets them here, so that's about all he ate). Happy 30th Uncle Andy!

Declan, Erin and Emmie practicing for the big surprise!

Face toot, tummy toot & a kick!

Here's what dad and Dec do most every night! I love when he says "face toot", but the kick at the end is hilarious:)

23 months

Yesterday Declan turned 23 months old...only one more month til the big 2! Party planning is under way:) I asked him what he wanted at his birthday party and he told me "blue cupcakes", so that's what we'll have! Here's some of our favorite things that he is doing right now: saying "thanks mama", "mama get" or "dada get", giving his dad big kisses before bed, trying so hard and doing pretty well at jumping, helping me with laundry (he likes to help put the wet clothes in the dryer, now if his folding was just better), asking "what this" and after you reply saying "oh, mower" (or whatever it was), digging in the dirt (only on bath days) and enjoying the outside. His food intake is amazing...the other day he ate 3 waffles, string cheese and triscuits, 3 bowls of strawberries and a bowl of tortellini all before 11am! We go through so much fruit each week, we need our own fruit farm! He also loves my protein bars! We can't wait to celebrate his 2nd birthday with him...we love you boo!

Here's dad and Dec downtown on Mother's Day:)

New Ride

Here's Declan and Boo 2's new ride! It came on Wednesday and we put it together last night...we couldn't wait til July! Dec seems to like so far:) If you can't tell, this was taken right before bath time, he was a dirty mess so he had to take his clothes off before he came in from the backyard:)

dr appt (32+ weeks)

Yesterday was our 32 week check up and we're happy to say that everything is great! I'm measuring right on time, Boo 2 and I have gained almost 14 pounds together and Boo 2's little heartbeat sounds wonderful:) We go back in two weeks and the whole way home Declan said "two weeks, two weeks" and "baby heartbeat, hub a hub a hub a"...such a good big brother already!

Indy Mini

Saturday was the Indy Mini and BC's first time running it. He did awesome! He finished with a time of 1:45:07...right where he wanted to be! It was a cold, windy morning and his first mile took almost 15 minutes because of all of the people (39 thousand), but he felt great when he crossed the finished line. Dec and I couldn't get close enough to see him at the finish line, but we were able to see him right after. We're so proud of him, way to go papa!! I even bumped into my friend Tracy (Gradle) after the race...she posted a great time too:)

Cool Trick!

Here's a look at Dec's new cool trick! I think he saw it on Yo Gabba Gabba and after eating some pudding with dad he decided to try it out:)
