To Know or Not to Know

I (being Susann only) am seriously thinking about not finding out the gender of baby 2. 


No one I say that to believes me.

Seriously.  No one does.

I will fully admit I have a severe "need to know" on all things, but this could be a fun little surprise if we are able to wait.

What are the chances?

Also how many minutes until Shawn weighs in with a "REALLY"?

With Robbie, I had absolutely, 100% no doubt that he was a boy.   I didn't have a question in my mind, and when they told us at 20 weeks, I was like "duh".

I don't feel as strongly with this baby (who clearly needs a nickname, and if we stick with the frog theme it would be Newt but then, really, Newt?).  I'm probably at 70% boy, 30% girl.

I FEEL differently this pregnancy.  I'm much sicker.  Much more tired.  Much more zitty.   Much more interested in candy and cupcakes.  But we can probably attribute some of that to chasing around a 10 month old.

Who knows.  If we decide to find out, the ultrasound is scheduled for July 16th.  Until then, we can start back up "Old Wives Wednesdays" like I did last time around.

I just want another one of these: 

A happy, sunshiney, good sleeping, awesomeness of a baby.

Self-Feeding...A Study

Self-Feeding...A (disgusting) study.

My nauseaous tummy has made it so Mr. mess and Mom can't dine at the same time.

Case in point:  Robbie v. fajita night.

I'm not sure who won.

Robbie has begun transitioning from full on infant to full on toddler.  While this process is still on going and will be for sometime he is making some real progress.

He has started to pull himself up and take his fist steps - yes he was holding on to the banister - but they were steps nonetheless.  His other favorite place to pull himself up is in his crib. 

He has begun to feed himself and while the process leaves something to be desired as for as cleanliness goes it is hard say that it is not effective.

Robbie is also just about ready to say his first words.  Susan swears that he says Momma already but I  . . . well lets just say that I have not heard him say that just yet,  He certainly is willing and does not hesitate to make a "joyful noise" at every opportunity.

This weekend once again seemed very short.
