6 weeks and counting . . .

As many of you know, I am going to need to have a C-Section again with Baby Boy #2. Yesterday at my doctors appointment, my doctor set the date. The big day is going to be December 13, 2006 at 7:30am. It still feels so far away and I can't believe that I have 6 more weeks of baby growth! I know that the time will fly by and before we know it, B2 will be in our arms. We are excited and can't wait. Now, only if we can come up with a name . . . .

Weekend at Kamp Keller

We spent the last weekend up north in Heber, AZ with my family at a friends cabin. We had a great time hanging out, hiking, playing games and lots of eating. It was great to be able to wear a sweatshirt and have to sleep with blankets on! We all had a really great time and look forward to doing it again.

Surprise, surprise, surprise . . .

And boy was it! I have an awesome husband and would like to share what he did for me. Yesterday,(Thursday) Cody completely surprised me! First, he woke me up with breakfast in bed and the fact that he took the day off to finish planting our winter lawn (so Jacob and I have a nice yard to play in). I thought all of that was great! Little did I know that he had one more surprise up his sleeve - he had scheduled a prenatal massage for me!! It was SO nice. I highly recommend. It was a wonderful and much needed relaxing day. Thanks again Cody!!!

Nutritional Value of Soap

Can anyone out there explain to me why it is that babies/kids will turn their nose up at all sorts of yummy regular food, but when it comes to something like a bar of soap - they dig right in? A few nights back, Jacob, without any reluctance, decided to take a big huge bite. He has never been that quick to pick up a piece of fruit or veggie and taste it. Everything else goes through careful inspection. Not the soap! All of the sudden, I was prying it out of his mouth - teeth clenched around it. For those who might be panicking - no worries, he didn't swallow any of it. And he has slowed down on his soap tastings. It's made by Burt's Bee's . . .they're all natural, right?
