Meet Beck

Well this is my first official post since the baby was born. Luckily Mark got some pictures up for everyone to see. Here are some more from the hospital and at home. This little guy changes in about every picture. Mark says we are 99% sure that his name is Beck, no middle name yet but at least we are making progress towards his name. The labor and delivery was so much better than it was with Henley thank goodness, I could not have done that again. I am so grateful that he his here and healthy. Henley still seems to really love him and is being a good big sister.

Here is our first family picture.
In the hospital he slept most of the time except when Mark had him. He liked to just look at his dad and I think Mark felt the same way towards him.

More cute pictures.

This boy has the stongest little arms and likes to keep them up by his face all the time. He has found his thumb a couple of times. When we wrap him up for bed it is a fight to get his hands down by his side and they usually make their way back up to his face.

Once again wide awake with Daddy.

Getting kisses and cuddles from his big sister.

We are really so happy and blessed with two beautiful kids.

Big Girl

We are very happy that Henley is finally potty trained. I guess finally isn't the right word since she is not even 2 1/2 but right after she turned two she was actually really close to being potty trained. Since then she has gone through phases and even a month ago would get so mad when I took her to the bathroom. She spent some time in Wyoming with Mark's family a few weeks ago and then when she got home I just put her in underwear and eventually she started doing really good. She does have occasional accidents but for the most part she has been in underwear for a week and a half and is doing great. About the same time I started putting her in underwear she went potty one day and said " I learned it mom." Since then it seems like she really did "learn it" and has wanted to keep her underwear dry. She also really doesn't like diapers any more, when I put them on at night she asks to wear her underwear. I am so proud of her but I am a little nervous to see what happens when the baby comes. There were times when I thought she would be three and not potty trained and then it just seemed to click on day, thank goodness. Good job Henley! Here are some funny/cute pictures of her from the last little while.

Not sure why she looks mad in this picture, dressing up is one of her favorite things to do. She actually just went to bed in a dress-up dress.
*Baby update: I went to the doctor last Friday and he said that he would be surprised if I made it another week without going in to labor. He wanted me to come in today and I wasn't much further along so he thinks I might make it to next week. We have so much going this next week, so I really need to make it to a least next Tuesday the 23rd and then any time after that is ok with me. I know that I don't really have a choice if this baby wants to come it will and that will be just fine too. He said if I have not had it by next Friday he will induce if I want to be induced. But, then again he told me my water could break any time and if I have contractions to head to the hospital and I would have the baby. So the bottom line is we should have it by next Friday at the latest ( unless I decide not to be induced) or I could have it tonight. I feel a little overwhelmed this time around because this pregnancy has gone so so fast but I am also very excited for Henley to have a sibling and to know what this baby is (my guess is a boy). I will keep you posted.

Time Flies...

Last Tuesday was Henley's last day of gymnastics. I can't believe that she has done it for 9 months. I was debating about doing a summer class with her but we would only get a couple weeks worth before the baby comes so I decided we should take a break until next fall. She loved going to class each week to see her friends and she loved Coach Chelsea. Her are some pictures from her last day.I also have a video of her walking on the low beam all by herself that I will try to post later.

Henley and Coach Chelsea

Swinging on the rings all by herself

For some reason she was afraid of the rope for a long time but she was finally able to hold on and swing by herself.

I think she was trying to look at the camera and walk on the beam.

Doing the salute at the end of class with her friends Emma and Max.

Well, time also flies by when you are pregnant the second time around. I officially have one month until my due date and if I get induced then I have even less time than that. I really can't believe how fast this pregnancy has gone and ready or not here come the baby. Here is probably the last picture I will take of my big belly.
