Sullivan at 22 Months

Its hard to believe that our boy is 22 months old.  He is so full of personality and is almost always busy moving things around or trying to figure something out.  He is already becoming more independent each day, satisfied to line up cars or stack blocks in the shape of sailboats.  Of course he likes mama to play too, he especially likes me to draw little fish on paper, but its nice to see him using his imagination all on his own.  


Sully has been saying "mommy-o trash" because one day a couple weeks ago he saw me run outside and give the garbage men our trash.  Now every time he helps me throw something away he'll say those words.  

More words he says often:
Daddy & Mommy-sometimes daddy-o & mommy-o
Bagel(sounds like be-bull)
George and Georgie-from Curious George, his current favorite
Cookie(emphasis on the ooookie)
Thank you
Rice(sounds like ice)
Pock Pock-because that's what hens sound like so when he says it he wants to eat chicken :)
Bops-balls, motorcycles, & bikes
Oh my 

Sullivan has been doing so much better in the sleep department. Some of you may remember that we co-slept pretty much for a year and a half.  These days I'll put him in his crib around 8:30-9:00 and sing him our night night song(silent night) and rub his back and he'll sleep until 5:30-6:30.  The past few weeks of this have been some of the best nights sleep I have had since he's been born.  I am so thankful for hours of continuous sleep.

 (resting his head on my leg, while we were playing on the floor)

Even though he is sleeping on his own at night he still loves to cuddle and I cherish that time we have together.  

This is what he does when he is pausing to think.  He'll put a finger over his lips and go "hmmmmm."  

(one of the only pictures I could get while he was still haha)

Lately we've been meeting up with a group of moms at the park and just recently the kids have really started interacting with each-other.  They will collect rocks in the same bucket, or take turns rolling cars down the slides.  Its been fun for Sullivan and so fun for all of us proud mamas too.

(he's resting his hand on my neck/shoulder)

Mostly, I am so in love with the little person that he already is.  He is more than I ever imagined and we are so blessed to have him.  Each day is a new adventure for us and I'm soaking him up.

21 Weeks

21 Weeks:  

My energy level has finally increased this week.  I've been taking long hilly walks with Sully and mostly going about our normal routine.  The baby's movements are becoming stronger, which I love.  I remember after Sully was born I was struck by how strange it was to not be feeling movements in my belly anymore.  My body was used to it. 

I sewed this maxi skirt yesterday out of the softest jersey material.  It was a quick project (always the most satisfying). 

no make-up yet haha.

I started to crochet a blanket for the baby last week and it is turning out so cute.  I'll share soon.

Big News!

Monday I had my 19 week doctor appointment and yesterday I had the BIG ultrasound.
Everything looked great with our sweet little baby.  So to answer the question I always get when I tell people I'm pregnant.  Is it a boy or a girl?  Now my friends, we know the answer and I enlisted a special assistant to help me with that answer.

And the verdict is....

We are so happy to be adding another sweet boy to our family.  I am looking forward to seeing Sully grow up with a little brother(& hopefully best friend) by his side.  My heart is bursting with excitement!  Lots more to come.
