We had my 32 weeks appt yesterday and everything is looking good. My bp wasn't the best but nothing that worried my doctor. I went to Monkey Joe's with Jakson yesterday and think that i over did it :/ doctor told me take extra strength tylonol and rest as much as possible. hopefully i will be feeling better soon!

diaper shower

This weekend my sweet sisters, sis-in-law and momma threw Tonya and I a diaper shower. They did such a great job. The decor was adorable and the food was so delicious :)

I am so, SO blessed with an amazing family and wonderful friends. I got a some really cute blankets, burp cloths and shirts for Henry AND 1500 diapers, wohoooo!!

That is going to help us out SO much! I can't wait to see how long all of those diapers last us. Thanks again to my family and friends who were able to make it to the shower. I am one blessed girl :)

Tonya and I and the two of us with the hostesses!

..sorry chrissi...i had to :)

After the shower I hung out with a friend who wasn't able to make it to the shower. We went to the avenue and grabbed some Yogli Mogli afterwards :) While at the avenue we went into the gap and searched the sale racks. I learned that i am going to have a problem matching my boys! It was so fun getting matching shirts and pants...i have to make up for not having a girl yet, haha-- sorry boys!

This past weekend was perfect :)

date night(La Parilla-- The Licoln Lawyer, which was awesome-- and yogurt)thanks to my wonderful twin and her family for babysitting. riding around town in the jeep with the doors off. eating hamburgers and fries at a neat little joint downtown. painting some furniture for baby Henry's room. a nice little visit from the in-laws. eating a yummy dinner outside on the patio. the most perfect weather you could ever ask for. the playground. a wonderful time with my beautiful little family. all while feeling my sweet little boy kicking around like crazy :)
i LOVE IT ALL!

here are some of the pictures from Jakson's first ride in the jeep.

Just a swingin

Josh bought Jakson a swing at a consignment sale and he was pretty excited about it. Last night he put it all together and found a nice spot in the backyard for it to go. Jakson was one happy kid :)

"Ummm, daddy, what is this?!"

jakson at 16 months

This time in his life is so fun. He is learning so much and completely turning into a little boy. He is a little fire cracker and that is a fact. He is wild and full of energy but still my sweet little man :)


Here is what you are up to at 16 months...

your vocab-- mama, dada, "dah"- dog, "bah"- ball, hey, "bah, bah"-bye bye, "yea"-- a current favorite of yours, "pah"- pop, mimi, baby or bobby, and you have said sis once :)
you always sound like you say other words too. we are pretty much in shock after you say some things. you are really trying to talk and it is so fun to listen to you!

you LOVE playing with balls. you throw them, kick them, roll them. sports are in your near future!

dancing-at 15 months you were doing the shoulder shrug. now you basically run in place and get all excited. you love fun and fast music.

teeth- still 4 on top, two on bottom. BUT you are currently teething. you chew on everything you can get in your mouth. the two next to your middle bottom ones are finally coming in..yay!


sleep- you take one afternoon nap now. anywhere from 2-3 hours. going to bed about 8:30 or 9. not sleeping too great since you are teething. there's a lot of 3 am bonding time with you momma :) but henry is keeping her up at night so it all works out pretty well!
food- your appetite is so random. one day you will eat a ton and the next day you will spit everything out.

drink- pop introduced you to chocolate milk at 15 months and now it is just a special bond you two share :) you love it and he loves to give it to you! you drink about 3 sippys of milk and a couple of 1/2 & 1/2 juice and water sippys.

you think it is fun to gag yourself...this is weird to me!


you love to play with belly buttons. especially mommy's crazy looking one right now.

you are obsessed with your pop. it doesn't matter who is holding you. as soon as you see him you run over and lift your hands up to him.

you started giving the sweetest kisses at 15 months and now you blow kisses too :)

you love being outside. if it is a pretty day you want to be out in the yard getting dirty and playing with the dogs. we are searching for outdoor toys for you!

you love cars. daddy let you "help" him drive his truck at 15 months and now you are obsessed with all cars...including your new beloved police cozy coupe :)

you love putting mommy or daddys shoes on and walking around. you try to put your own shoes on but haven't quite gotten the hang of it.

you love bath time. especially splashing and making a huge mess!

temper tantrums...you are great at these when you don't get your way!

you are have started crying when we drop you off at nursery on sunday mornings but quickly get over it once you realize that all of your friends are in there!

when mommy or daddy tells you no, you like to say "no" right now back and come over and try to hit us. oh boy...what are we going to do with you?!?

you are ALL boy. no doubt about that! we love you booger and love watching you grow!!

Henry update--

I went in today for my 30 week appt. Looks like the booger is transverse just like jakson was until about 35 weeks. i am hoping he will flip for me. i know he still has some time though!

Bp was normal, thank goodness! Little guy sounded great :)

I pulled a back muscle yesterday :( that is no fun when you are constantly keeping up with a 16 month old. thankfully my wonderful parents were able to help me out last night. the heating pad helps it a ton. the dr said trying to rest and putting heat on it should help it get better faster.

We go back in two weeks!

my sleepy boys.

i caught my boys snoozing last night and i just had to snap a picture :) one of josh's favorite things is putting jakson to bed. it is just him and his boy and he loves it and i love that he loves it. he is an awesome daddy :)

oops, woke daddy up. i love this picture!

i am pretty pumped about my new pillows that i made. they brighten up the living room...

we worked around the house this past weekend. i am SO ready to get Henry's room done. We have just been so busy recently but i am hoping by next month it will be close to getting done. i am going to start stressing soon if we don't! I will keep you updated. my oh so talented friend, alaina, is going to be helping us. I can't wait because she has some awesome ideas. it is gong to be so perfect :)

p.s-- my flickr account is now full for good :( it says i have to upgrade..is this true or does anyone have any suggestions about where to put my pictures?!

thanks and i hope you all have a great Tuesday,

i need help-- on the search for a double stroller!

Hello everyone! I am not even sure how many people read my blog but i really need some help so any advice you can give me would be appreciated! Josh and I are on the hunt for a new stroller to deal with a 18 mo old and a baby and then as they grow!

I think i have decided on getting a sit and stand stroller.

BUT i am not sure if I should get one like this...


it just has a bench that jakson could sit on or he could use the thing to stand on. the one thing that worries me about this is when he is tired the bench will not be comfortable.

OR

do i go for this...


this stroller can be two seats or you can change out the seat and make it a bench that he could sit on or stand like the one above. the reviews say this one is heavier but i really think i would like having the option of being able to let him relax or not!

it also has to be one that will work with my chicco keyfit carseat.

I want to get one that we will use bc i don't want to buy one and then hate it and never use it. Any advice you can offer me would be SO appreciated!

Thanks so much,

little man has a personality

Jakson is always making himself laugh. he thinks he is one funny kid and of course his parents do too :) we were up pretty early this morning and jakson decided to play peek-a-boo behind the curtains. it made me laugh so i had to take a quick video.
i love him-- enjoy!
