Happy Halloween!

If you ask Sully what he is he will tell you he's an "ark" which is his way of saying shark.

One very adorable shark if you ask me.

Happy 2nd Birthday (10.23.2012)

Dear Sullivan,
 You are the most loving two year old around.  Your daddy and I look forward to your tight hugs and sweet kisses each day.  

You like to grab our hands and pull us in the direction you want to go, which is a lot of places.

You love being involved in whatever we are doing.  So I include you in as much as I can.  You enjoy sitting on the kitchen counter to help me mix ingredients or help with your daddy's coffee on the espresso maker.   When ever he finished his drink you get concerned and want to make another one for him.  You'll walk into the kitchen and put the cup on the counter-top directly in front of the espresso machine.  Smart boy.  You also put dishes in the sink for us, and still love throwing things in the trash.

You've stunned us with your smart ways countless times.  One day your daddy asked you if you wanted a drum set and you started moving your hands like a drummer would.  We were shocked because we have never shown you anything drum related before.

You ask for baths during the day, and often take a couple cars in there with you.  You try to pull your diaper off and get all your clothes off as well.   If you could be naked all the time you totally would.

You've gotten so much better in situations where other people watch you.  We go to MOPS and you will cry when I drop you off but you must quickly calm down because the ladies always tell me how good you were when I go pick you up.  A year ago I would get my named called to go pick you up from the nursery because you wouldn't calm down, so this is a BIG step for you.

You are so so curious about EVERYTHING.  You constantly ask "what's this?" or "what's that noise?"  And you are almost always finding things, like acorns, rocks, or leaves.

Your dad has these loose plastic teeth that he works on at school and you found a few and put them in your little cars, then you asked for "more teeth."  Haha.

You also had your first dental appointment and we went to see your daddy.  At first you were not happy about it at all, but then you came around and were so sad to leave daddy at school.

You lift my shirt to kiss the baby and then you lift up your shirt so I can kiss your belly.  So sweet.

You and your friends have started to play together rather than just near each other.  Its adorable to watch.

You are 35 inches tall and 29-30 pounds.  You wear a size 6 shoe and size 2 clothes.  

Interesting foods you love to eat:
raw beets
sushi(not the raw fish kind yet)
green olives

I love that you have really started liking food over the last four months.  It took you a while to get excited about eating but now you are always open to trying new things.

Some of the first words I hear you say when you wake up in the morning are:

"all done"
"georgie?" (because you love watching Curious George)

You always give me a kiss in the morning.

You are embarrassed by my dancing, however you eventually come around and start dancing too.  You mostly run in circles, roll on the floor, and march your feet.

Favorite toys to play with:
 -just about any car or toy with wheels
-balls of any kind but its especially cute to hear you say "golf ball"

We are so blessed to have you.  Happy second birthday Sullivan!  I love you so so much, more than I ever imagined.

Pumpkin Patch

As soon as he saw this little train ride he happily bolted to the very front car and sat down.  I strapped him in and stood back because I had a feeling it would be interesting when the tractor started pulling.

As soon as the tractor started he looked at me and said "mommy" and did the sign for finished.  I just smiled away and followed the train, sometimes waving and taking pictures.  I was the only parent following the train but it was a big loop and I needed pictures 

I could not stop laughing when he went into this sad charlie brown position.

Not sure why I was chuckling to myself, but I was.

As we were walking to the start of the corn maze we saw some kids feeding the horse some corn.  So I was not surprised when Sully picked up this piece of corn in the maze and held it the whole way through so he could feed the happy horse.

Loved rearranging the pumpkins.

And that about wraps up our trip to the pumpkin patch.

Little update

Last weekend we took Sully to the farm at our local university here.  Sully loved the animals, especially the cows and sheep.

He also had his first hayride.  He loved that it was pulled by a tractor.

Sully is mostly moved into his new bedroom.  I still need to do a couple things to really complete it but so far he really likes it.

This is his bed.  I love that he doesn't need rails because it's not far off the ground at all.  He climbs up and down on his own.  I painted the fish for him because all he ever wants me to draw are fish in his little notebook with crayons.

Belly at 28-29 weeks.  My last ultrasound had the baby measuring a little over a week ahead of my due date  which is January 3rd.  The ultrasound guessed December 24th.  So I guess its safe to say we will most likely have a holiday baby, either Christmas or New Year's. 

When we ask for hugs he wraps his arms around our necks and squeezes and when we ask for kisses he smacks his lips together and plants one on us.  

What a joy he is to have.  So so blessed.
