23 weeks, 3 days Pregnant

Remy is not the only one growing around here! Little brother is up to approximately 1 lb 9 oz and is still measuring a full week ahead of schedule. We may have another tall boy on our hands! Here are some images from today's OB appointment:

Remy These Days

It occurred to me today that in April Remy will no longer be an only child and, while I hope that I won't stop noticing the inches of growth and the milestones of development, I probably won't have as much time to blog about it! So here is where he is at these days:

  • He is 41 inches tall and weighs 34 lbs.  At 3 years and 7 months old, that puts him in the 58th percentile for weight and the 97th percentile for height!   
  • He still loves his blankies and binkies. 
  • His hair is thicker, darker, and less wavy than when he was a baby. 
  • Favorite foods are bacon, pepperoni pizza, fresh strawberries, Ritz crackers, blueberry Craisins, and cheese sticks.  
  • Favorite TV shows are Super Hero Squad, Curious George and Wild Kratz.  
  • Favorite books are the Lego City books. 
  • His best friend at school is Ryland. (Connor and Liam have been bumped, poor guys.)  
  • He can now brush his own teeth, put on his own shoes, and go to the bathroom by himself. (But he still needs lots of reminders and pointers.)  
  • He loves vacuuming, mopping, sweeping, and, recently, raking.
  • His favorite Christmas presents were an airplane from Grandma Connie, a Dirt Devil Jr., and a Bissell Swiffer steam mop.  
  • He can now tell us about his dreams, what happens at school, what he saw on TV, and all sorts of interesting things. 
  • Cute things he says: packawage for package, I can't want to instead of don't want to, and responding your welcome! whenever people praise him. He's also extremely liberal with the adjectives nice and new.  
  • Prefers scissors to crayons but can draw a smiley face when pressed.  :)

Red Rock and Hoover Dam (Steph's Visit)

Steph's way-too-short visit ended last night and I already miss her. We definitely made the most of the time that we had, though! I only have pictures from Red Rock and Hoover Dam but we also ate at some great restaurants, saw a movie, did some shopping, and drove up to see the snow on Mt. Charleston. It was a lovely break from the day-to-day, but now I need to hurry up and finish my Christmas shopping. :) Here are some pics!

Baby Boy!

I am 19 weeks 3 days pregnant and I had my big anatomy scan today. The baby is indeed...a BOY! Remy will be getting the little brother he wants! And so far it's a big baby boy, measuring a whole week ahead of schedule. Everything that they check checked out good, so I'm a very happy mama!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Our Thanksgiving was really small this year. Work gave Ross a ham so we skipped turkey and all I had to do was the stuffing, potatoes and candied yams. Brent and his girlfriend brought over some more yummy sides and we had a friendly, not-so-fancy dinner at the kitchen table. Afterwards Mommo and Poppo came over from their dinner at the buffet and we got to have pumpkin pie and visit a little.

It was so nice having Ross home for four days. We took Remy to see Frozen, did some online shopping, listened to a LOT of Christmas music, put up the decorations, and lazed around!
