Sesame Street Live

In trying to be a "fun" mom, I look for new and exciting events/things to take little man to.  When I heard that Sesame Street Live was in Dallas, I knew that little man would LOVE it!

With the move and how topsy-turvy our little world had been lately, I knew he would really benefit from a night out that was all about him. My SIL was coming into town to help with the final push of our move {the decorating/staining/painting process} so she came to see Elmo with us.

Sesame Street was all he talked about all day long- he even fell right to sleep during nap time so he could hurry up and see Cookie Monster.

He spent the first 15 minutes on the edge of his seat with this super serious look on his face. He was in utter amazement and did not have a clue of what to think.

Every several minutes, he would lean over with a huge smile and squeeze my arm, hugging it super tight.

The show was super cute! The message was to 1. close your eyes 2. Imagine where you wanna go 3. open your eyes and you can go anywhere!

Little man likes Elmo, but he would go crazy when Cookie Monster would come out. The highlight of my night, and what made it worth every penny for the good seats we had, was the moment that little man leaned over and gave me a huge hug and said "i wove you mommy, and i WOVE this one!!" as he pointed to the stage. My heart melted and if I had the world to give, it would have been his!

24 weeks!!! {new sono pictures}

I cannot believe I am already in my 6th month! I am wrapping up my 2nd trimester and really starting to feel the aches and pains of a body growing a baby! He loves to put his feet on my bladder and jump like a trampoline. All of my muscles in my rib cage are stretching so much I feel like they could snap! Pelvic pain is increasing, but no where near what it was with little man and the pubic symphysis I had with him! He is moving like crazy in my tummy and nights of good rest are becoming very rare. Little man loves to come and lay his head down on my belly and "hug" the sweet baby! It melts my heart! Although if you ask if he is excited to meet the baby, he says "no, no baby." LOL! I was sick free for months and just got sick last week for the first time in forever- but it made up for it {yuck}! I am only at 15lbs weight gain- which is SUPER compared to what I did with Little You live and learn, I guess!

New Sono Photos!!!

Dr said he looks perfect!

Cutest Cousins!

I had a long {4hr} doctors appointment so I asked my mom to come and visit to watch little man. She brought my brother and niece too, and we had so much fun hanging out! Little man loves his sweet cousin {and follows uncle J around everywhere}!

Thanks Grammy!

Fun time at the kid's gym

Here are some shots of little man at the kid's gym we attend twice a week. He loves it so much there and it is great for teaching him an abundance of skills {as well as wearing him out just in time for a nap}!

Warm up!

Play time!

Gymnastics time!
