Air Hockey Maniac!

I am still behind on getting any sort of video on the blog.  ( I will shamelessly admit I have no idea how)  But my sister can and she posted a cute one of Jacob playing air hockey.  Jacob has great hand/eye coordination which comes in handy for sports.  SO, go to the Knight Family link and check out our little air hockey guru.

That's right . . .#3 is on the way!

Cody and I are very excited and can't wait until mid February for his/her arrival.  It is still early, I am only 5 weeks along - but I couldn't resist sharing our news.  I would love prayers for a healthy pregnancy.  Some of you may remember that I developed cholestasis of pregnancy with Aidan.  This is a condition which the normal flow of bile in the gallbladder is affected by the high amounts of pregnancy hormones.  It makes you itch uncontrollably and can be damaging to the baby.  Typically it doesn't begin until the last trimester.  From what I have read I may have a 60-70% chance of developing it again.  Ugh!  It's on my list of things to talk about with the doctor.  I plan on keeping everyone updated during this journey.
Thanks, in advance, for all of your prayers and support.

Indie Rae

We had the pleasure of hanging out with one of my best friends Lisa and her daughter Indie this week.  Lisa and Indie were in town from  Minnesota visiting family while her husband, Jason, taught at a church camp.  I couldn't believe how big Indie was!  She is adorable, crawling all over the place, giggling and making all sorts of cute sounds.  Two of my favorite things about Indie are her little laugh she gives when you play peek-a-boo (I swear you just say the word and she laughs!) and the way she loves to watch her "Daddy videos".  Lisa brought along videos on her iPod of Indie and Jason playing together and Indie absolutely loves watching them.  They are only a total of about 3 minutes and they are so cute!  Jacob enjoyed loving on her and was very sweet with her.  One of the first things Aidan did was throw a ball at her head and knocked her over.  I was horrified but Lisa assured me it would make a funny story!  Maybe someday I will be able to laugh at it.  (In his defense, he really wasn't being a bully, he just didn't understand that Indie is too little to play catch.)  We all enjoyed spending time together.  I hope they will be back soon for another visit!

Here is Indie, can you guess what she is doing in the first picture?

Sucker Lovin'

Aidan has recently discovered that he loves suckers!  He has only had about a total of one and a half suckers and it will definitely be a special treat - one because he really doesn't need any additional sugar in his system (he's hard enough to slow down!) and two because the sticky mess isn't so fun to clean up. :-)  Jacob also enjoys them, but not nearly as much as Aidan.  Here are some photos of Aidan enjoying his new love . . .

*the messy face is from our casserole dinner, not the sucker

I love my new tasty treat!

You think you can get my sucker away from me . . .go ahead and try it!

The sugar is starting to kick in and I LOVE it!!

This is SO good!

Devouring my delicious sucker!

This and That

The boys and I have been having some fun this past week.  I bought a few new things - gotta love the Target Dollar Bins!!  We've had fun with punch balloons, which by the way are not easy to blow up!  And even though we have a big normal pool, it is easier to swim in a plastic pool.  The boys have had a blast swimming together.  Finally, Jacob and Aidan painted some great pictures with finger paint.  And surprise, surprise, Aidan had to taste it!  Silly nut.
