Happy Valentine's Day!

We have had a lot of fun celebrating the big V! Yesterday, Brennan and I went to a Valentine play date party. Out of 15 children there were 3 boys. Brennan had a few admirers that I'm not sure he knew quite how to handle! He really stuck with the boys.  He had a blast, and so did I. The kids were all so good that we had a good bit of mommy time, too. There were precious Valentine decorations, and cute Valentine treats for everyone.

Thanks Alyson for the pictures!                                                     

Today, he was so excited for his second Valentine party at school.  We did the glow stick Valentines from Pinterest. They were super easy and inexpensive.

For his teachers, we did a pot of pink tulips for each one. I find these at Walmart each year and dress them up a little.

He had a great time eating the icing off of the cupcakes. 

He hasn't felt too well this afternoon, so we had a quiet evening at home with pizza and chocolate filled strawberries. It's been a great start to a fun weekend.

Let's Make This Completely Official....

We're expecting a baby in August!

I know this isn't new news to everyone, but I have to finally get the details blogged. This baby is a long awaited answered prayer. We found out December 16th. We decided to let our parents and siblings in on the secret on Christmas day. Mike made a gift certificate good for a grandchild in August 2013. It took each mom a minute to get it, but I think they were pretty excited.

After a good 6 week and 8 week appointment we were ready to share. It has taken awhile to get to everyone, but it's now Facebook official so all the world knows, right. 

The official date is August 25th. I'm almost 11 weeks. Brennan and the baby will be a little over 3 1/2 years apart. He says he is having a brother and HER name will be Bubbles. Hmmm. So far this pregnancy has been nothing like my previous. I was terribly sick with Brennan, and really haven't been sick this time. I basically ate cheese and bread before, this time I want to eat everything in sight. On cheese and bread, Brennan weighed 8 lbs. 11 ozs. and I still had plenty to loose. Yes, I'm worried! The one thing that has reigned is exhaustion. Exercise has helped, but I still sleep as much as Brennan most days. I've been very motivated to get some projects done around the house. I hope that motivation holds out until I have the energy to do them.  I also have an aversion to smells that I usually love, like some candles and Bath and Body fragrances. I think I've started to really show this week. I can still cover it, but it's getting harder. This is probably early for some people but I actually showed a little sooner with Brennan. We have name ideas but nothing definite, and of course thanks to Pinterest I have plenty of room ideas. Yep, I've been loving those secret boards ;).
