Baby Number two!

  If you haven't heard already I am expecting a new Baby, arriving at the end of August.  It will be a WARM summer for me, lots of river time I suspect.  We are very exited for this new blessing.  Baby (not nicknamed yet) is already showing with a little baby bump.  I tell Beau, but he doesn't get it, yet.

   I am struggling with weaning Beau.  He is just not taking to it well.  We have made progress so I have high hopes.  It's not that bad, I just feel like I need to be strong for his sake.  Then he looks at me with those truly sad eyes and I just cannot resist.  I have been consistent.  If I say 'No' I mean it and no more night time nursing sessions.! but when he's really serious I just melt (nap time, bed time usually).  It is getting uncomfortable and I am trying to let him know that.  I'm giving him another few weeks since his birthday is coming.  Hope, is that he loses interest, lol.  I had said decided at '2' I would wean him.  So we are still on track.  I do think it is making me extra tired and hungry, maybe my imagination, but I am beat.

I am slowly bringing order to my space around me.  Cleaning up after myself again.  Morning (noon, night) sickness always gets me.  But I had a good day today so again another hopeful event  and I will feel better again.  

We went for a walk yesterday, a beautiful day crisp and clear.  It rained today which was greeted with a smile from me.
 Beau is turning two.  I am not going to have a large party.  Just family.  Both of his Grandmothers will be here, a special day for him.  I am going to make him a cake, maybe even curious George, since that is his most favorite cartoon of ALL time!  I found some balloons at Party City so I will make a trip into 'town' to get them.  I am also going to make Hamburgers and French Fries,  his other favorite (bad I know).  He just loves fries and so do I.  I try to limit my consumption but Chris makes up for what I lack.  Team work.

Just love this Kid!

Pops and Beau so handsome

We have our walking sticks.
Much Love to all.  


  1. Congratulations!!! Oh... I remember that all-day "morning" sickness! Must be so hard with a little one running around!
    It must be hard as well to wean him at that age if he doesn't want to. My daughter is 22 months and she's no interest in weaning at all...
    All the best! It will be wonderful!

  2. Beau's haircut makes him look so grown up! I am so excited for you guys.

    It has been such a long time since I have seen you. One day we will have to catch up.

    love t

  3. Thank you. It will be wonderful!

    tt, I miss you, we will catch up one day.

  4. Hope you are feeling ok. Wish we could be there for Beau's B-Day. We love him and you so much. Love to send him something "special". Any ideas Mama Bear #2. Love you, Marlys

  5. Congratulations on your number 2! I love your site. Your little one is adorable
