Little Update

Okay I know it's been a while, a long while. I now have a two year old!! And a very active little person inside me who is 25 weeks along. Skyler's birthday was great, we spent Friday (his actual birthday) at home just the three of us, relaxing and enjoying each other. We also went to his music class where everyone sang him happy birthday of course. It was lovely. We also scrambled and cleaned our butts off to make our place presentable for Saturday.

His party on Saturday was pretty good. I made a ton of cupcakes. The family wasn't too horrible and he got lots of loot, including an acoustic guitar that's his size. And an adorable Toy Story snow suit from grandma and grandpa which was size 24 months. We had to go and exchange it for a 12 month size which fits him much better. The 24 months was huge, like double his size. I took him out to play in it on Sunday and enjoy the huge pile of snow that Nature dumped on us. He seemed to like walking in the waist high snow.

We set up our Christmas tree and Skyler loves it. The lights are inside little Christmas ball ornaments and he likes to point and stare at them. We got him a little baby doll for his birthday and he loves to go and kiss his baby and pick him up gently and carry him around. He's learning to be gentle and he's giving lots of kisses. He is so independent now, and he seems to be starting to make a few new sounds like "ba" and "va" and I heard a "fre" yesterday. Pretty exciting. His wait for speech should be up by January his physio said so hopefully we'll be seeing speech again soon. Anyway the next post will have pictures I promise. Sorry it's been so long!

I'm glad his birthday went well! Can you send some of the snow this way? We're still waiting down here!

Happy belated Birthday, Skyler!!! I'm so happy to hear (read) that his party went well.

It's so hard to believe that you're already 25 weeks along.

Snow?! We're just now starting to get rain. We don't snow where I live, but the cooler temperatures are certainly here.
