We’re in the downhill slide of this second pregnancy! We’re still not settled on a name, but I guess that will happen soon. This little guy has measured big every visit, so we went for an ultrasound today to see for sure. Dr. Taylor was right – he’s a big boy! Jake’s baby brother is measuring about 3 weeks bigger and is already nearly 4 pounds. We’re set for a repeat C-section on February 7th!
Here he is sucking his thumb!
A profile shot…
Jake, on the other hand, is slimming up and looks more like a big boy everyday. He’s doing great sleeping in his new bunk bed and is saying the funniest stuff. Today, when I picked him up from school, I took him to eat at Burger King and play. Greg had to go out of state tonight unexpectedly, so we decided to go have a little fun! The playground at Burger King is definitely made for bigger kids, which – you guessed it – means Mom has to climb into the play gym and help Jake get up and down. Yea, it was a pretty sight – a 30 week pregnant woman climbing around a Burger King playground. When we were leaving, he asked to go to McDonald’s across the street and I answered—“maybe later.” Well – now, Jake’s answer to everything is “maybe later.”
Me- “Jake, can you sing me a song?” Jake – “maybe later.”
Me – “Its time for bath, Jake.” Jake – “maybe later.”
We bought a video monitor for Jake’s new room. I never had one when he was little, but decided to get it when we moved him to the big boy bed across the house. I can hook up a second camera to it for the new baby, so that will be nice too. I bought one my friend, Tabitha, suggested. It has a feature that allows you to talk to them from your monitor. This morning, Jake was in his room playing in his bed. and I spoke to him through the camera in his room. It was hilarious. He didn’t know what to do or where it came from. When I went into the room, he was laying in his bed with the covers pulled up. He said – “its talking to me!” He was pointing at the camera like it was a monster! This could get fun!!
