Our Newest Addition Update

So we had an ultrasound on Monday to check on the little one. Everything looked great! We got a great peek at the baby laying on its side here...
Then the baby moved around and we got a nice little shot of his legs.... and everything else! Haha!
It is quite apparent at this point that Gray is now going to have a little brother!! Now Eric and I need to actually get started with planning things for the little guy. The original plan was to move Grayson to a big boy room and have the baby stay in the nursery. However, after talking about it a while, it is just too strange to move Gray out of his normal room. So what to do about about the new nursery? Who knows. We are open for suggestions though!
Looking forward to the first Halloween party of the season tomorrow night! Just need to get our costumes put together. The only one of us that is ready is Gray and it is past his bedtime. :)

So many things so little time

I feel like our lives have been caught in a tornado lately. Around every turn there is a change in plan or something hitting the fan.
  • Two days ago we had to have our brand new vehicle TOWED back to the dealership because it pretty much imploded. Let's just say that the dashboard looked like a Christmas Tree because there were so many lights on in there. Luckily it is completely covered and we didn't pay a cent. Got to pick it up yesterday and it is running just fine now.
  • Then yesterday I had a piece of sticky honey candy at the staff meeting and it took off half of one of my molars. Now I am off to the dentist today to see what they can do for me. That'll teach me for craving sweets. I should just stick to chocolate!

Other than that, Eric is getting prepared to go hunting tomorrow and I am frantically grading before progress reports go out tomorrow.

The trip up to Kelowna went well last weekend. It was a LONG time in the car (6.5 hours each way) but it was well worth it. Great to remember loved ones with family members all around. The thing that made the trip a lot more bearable was definitely the DVD screens in the car. No one else wanted to drive because who wouldn't rather watch a movie? Oh well.

Can't wait for Monday when we find out if it is going to be a little sister or little brother for Gray. We are soooo close. Makes me nervous though because after we really need to start going with planning for this little one...

Pumpkin Patch Time!

Today we went to the pumpkin patch with Rose, Keri and kids. Everyone had a great time dressing up and playing on the farm. We went for a hay ride, sling shot apples at targets, jumped in a bouncy house, fed goats, and even had time to pick out some great pumpkins!

Trying on the costume

Grayson decided to show up to Grandma and Grandpa's in his Halloween costume... just to try it out. He had to make sure it was scary enough! He had a great time running around in it and is ready to go to the pumpkin patch now.

First Official Post!

With so many things going on lately, I decided that it might be fun to share with our first family blog. :) Grayson is learning new things every day. Currently he loves playing with the halloween decoration that talks back to him. (It is supposed to be scary, but he thinks it is funny!) We are also fighting with him constantly about food. This is such a surprise because he used to love everything. I know deep down he really likes the food I slave over for him (haha) but he really just wants to be independant and get his own way... the little turkey. I wonder how he is still growing so well when I swear he only eats muffins, ham, yogurt, and plain bread. At his last doctors appointment he was still over the 97th percentile for height though so something is going right.

Over the past summer Eric and I traveled down to Jamaica for a destination wedding. About halfway through the trip I took a pregnancy test and we found out that Grayson is going to be a big brother! (Actually we took 2 just to be sure. Probably would have taken more but 2 was all I had packed!) Needless to say, the rum punch and late nights took a backseat pretty quickly. We tried to keep it underwraps and I ended up drinking virgin rum punch (aka punch) for the rest of the trip to keep up the facade of my old ways.

That was a while back and now I am already 4 months along and GROWING. My body is starting to carry this baby the same way as it did with Gray... out in front and huge. In only 2 weeks we get to find out if it is a boy or girl. We are truly just hoping for healthy. I definitely have a soft spot in my heart for a boy though and would love to see another baby wear some of those little outfits that I just packed up in storage bins in the garage today. We will see.

Other things coming up soon:
  • Gray gets to go to the pumpkin patch on Monday
  • Eric's 30th Birthday!! - Thursday, October 8th! YAY!
  • Road trip to Kelowna - My Uncle Brad passed away on October 1st after a very long fight with Parkinsons. His service is the 10th but Gray and I are planning on carpooling up on Friday the 9th. It will be nice to see family. Unfortunate that we are getting together under the circumstances though.
  • Eric's hunting trip - Let's hope that he can actually "catch" something this year... besides shooting a dart at an unlucky squirrel.
  • Halloween - Gray is going to be a dragon. What should his parents be? Hmmmm
  • My mom's 60th Birthday!!! Woah! :) - November 1st.

That is about all for now. Maybe I will take some new pics today so that I can upload them.
