Baby # 2

We are having BABY #2 due December 27-December 31. My projected due date is December 31st but the ultrasound lady said that from the length of the baby my due date could be early which means that I'm about a week farther along then I thought. We are super excited about bringing another baby into our family and William hasn't completely understood that I'm having a baby yet but he will learn soon enough. I am currently 10 weeks and 4 days along.

Update on Life

Hi everyone, sorry its been forever since I last posted on here. Lots of happened in our family. All of your summer activities, William's first birthday, trip to Bend, and Halloween. In July we camped for a week by Mt. Saint Helen's on one of the lakes and had lots of fun. Also, William had his first swimming lessons for a month starting the end of July to August. Here are some pictures of our camping trip where William loved playing in the dirt and with sticks.. Here he is playing in some leaves when we went hiking to some see some waterfalls. August 29 was William's 1st Birthday! We had family and some friends from both sides meet us at Bush Park by the playground closer to South High School. I bought a cake from Roth's for everyone else and my sister Andrea made William's cake. William's Cake: Chocolate cake, banana Everyone else's cake for his party filling, and chocolate frosting Before eating his cake I decided to have presents. He got new clothes, rain jacket, books, videos, shoes, toys, and a riding car. William was very unsure what to do when I handed him the cake at first. Then we started eating it on the side near to him and liked. He didn't get too messy until about 10 minutes in when he got a sugar high because there was frosting/cake everywhere on him, the highchair, the ground. He started throwing and smashing his cake. It was super funny. Here are before and after pictures of him with his cake: September I started back to work as a substitute teacher with Jason watching William and things started to slow down. Then at the beginning of October we went and visited my sister, brother-in-law, and nephew in Bend for the weekend. We left Friday and had dinner at their house, then sat we went to a Pumpkin Patch on the outside of Redmond where there are pony rides, pumpkin launchers, petting zoo, pumpkins, and food. William had lots of fun eating the hay, riding the pony, seeing the animals, getting pumpkins. Here are some pictures of us at the pumpkin patch: Riding on Dad's back around the patch First horse ride with dad holding me With momma eating some hay Picking out my own pumpkin Eating some hay on the haystack

1st Family Camping Trip

We went camping for the first time as a family at Swift Reservoir, which is on the North side of Mt Saint Helens. We were there from July 11-16th with my mom's side of the family. We had 4 camp sites with 8 tents because we could only have 2 tents per site. William had a wonderful time walking around finding sticks and playing in the dirt. The picture above is of William walking around the campground smiling. William did a wonderful job with playing, eating, and sleeping except for 2 nights when he had a diaper rash and the 2nd night when it was super cold. Here is a pic of William playing in the dirt and his hiding spot. On the second day we went up to a lookout spot of Mt. Saint Helen's and then went to a place where there were waterfalls that were beautiful. Here are some pics of the mountain and the waterfalls.

9 Months

Sorry it has been a long time since I last posted something on here. Life has been busy and getting ready for summer. My dad has an appointment next tues to see how his cancer and then decide if he needs more treatment. William is getting so big as you can see in his picture. He is 9 1/2 months almost now and at his appointment he weighed 20.5 lbs and 28.5 inches long. He weighs mostly 9 month clothes now, but still some 6-9 months because he has short legs like his momma, haha. He is moving all the time these days especially getting ready to walk. He walks with or along anything and has started standing by himself for about 2-3 seconds and has taken 1-2 steps before falling. He will stand for about 10 seconds if he has something in his hands and doesn't notice he is standing by himself. He has 6 teeth now, 4 on the top and 2 on the bottom. Also, just this last week he learned how to fake laugh and it is adorable when he does it because all the other noises he makes. He says mama, dada, and hi along with waving goodbye or hello. Standing with the help of our furniture. William sporting his shades in the car to Grammy and Papa's house
