It's A ...............

Brandon is going to have a little brother to play with and wrestle with - YEAH! I am so happy that we get to have two boys. Now we just have to figure out what we are going to name him? This picture is the one that shows we are having a boy, although I must admit I don't see it?The next picture shows his darling little face. The adorable baby picture that only a mother could love. :)This is my favorite picture, it shows his hands. During the entire ultra sound he was moving and waving his hands all over the place, so fun! Looks like we will have two active little boys in the family. :)

We are half way there

I am finally at the point where I am loving being pregnant - YEAH! The baby is kicking and I love that feeling and the daily confirmation that I really do have a living child inside me, so fun! This coming Friday we are going for our ultra sound appointment, I can't wait to find out what we are having. I do not have any suspicions this time around as to what it might be. With Brandon I was sure it was going to be a boy - I was right! This time - who knows? This pregnancy has been different from Brandon's so some would suggest that it must be a girl. Either way I of course will be happy. I would love a boy because than we have everything we need already, and lets face it boys are for the most part easier - especially if you are like me and don't know how to do hair, or play dolls, or do most girl things. But I would also love a girl because I want to have a daughter to cook with and be friends with like I am with my mom. Besides that girls are much more fun to buy clothes for.

So what do you think we will be having? I have set up a poll on the side bar, I would love to see what you all think. :)

I am still amazed that I have a two year old, how did that happen?
Planning a birthday party should not be as much fun as it was - but I loved doing it, I am already looking forward to the next big party to plan.
This year Brandon has shown a great interest in trains - so it was natural that we throw him a train party. Brandon loved how his choo choo cake turned out, and for two days every time he woke up from a nap he would ask to have his train cake - it was hard waiting!We had my family and my two grandma's come to our place for a BBQ. Brandon loved all the fun presents and I think my family had a lot of fun playing with them and with him as well.The next day was his actual birthday we had a little party with Nicole, McKell, and cousin Chandler. I knew that while it was fun to make the trains and hats there was little chance of me getting a picture of all the little conductors, but to my surprise they actually cooperated and let us take lots of pictures. (ensuring that at least one would turn out. :)) I think they look so cute! After taking pictures of the group we pushed them around and let them ride in the trains, they thought it was a lot of fun - but it was a lot of work for us mom's, next time I will attach a rope or something. :)Dana lent me her very large train cookie cutter. So ridiculous, and so fun! :) We had a lot of fun decorating the train cookies. :)Brandon learned that if you fill a spoon with frosting and then dip it into the mm's you can have a great snack - forget the cookie. :)Brandon had so much fun opening up each present and then wanting to play with them right away. Thanks everyone for the very fun gifts! We can't wait to start playing with them!After the party with the friends we had a quiet little party at home opening the rest of presents. He loved his Harold the Helicopter!After opening presents we went to dinner at the Train Restaurant - so Yummy! It is so fun to be able to eat a tasty little meal and then have fun toys to play with afterwards!Even Jared could not resist the fun toys! :)The poor kid was tuckered out! Happy Birthday Brandon! We love you!!!! We can't wait to see what fun surprises lay in store for the next year!
