Colton is 2!

Buster Bear is 2 years old!

Waffles with whip cream have become the birthday tradition in our house!

His way of showing he is 2 years old with his fingers (we are working on actually only have 2 fingers up)

Buster you are my passionate child. I used to call you bi-polar because you were either really happy or really ticked off, now I see it as passion. My prayer is God grants me wisdom to help direct that passion in the right direction.

You are all boy and I love it. You love to wrestle, to act big (showing off your muscles above), you love balls and cars. You are also my little lover boy. I would guess physical touch is your love language because you love to be held and loved on. You are a lover to others, but you sure love your momma. You are naturally more social than your sister. I love how you stand in the driveway and raise your arm to wave to cars that go by, even when they don't notice you.  

Oh trains, what else does a 2 year old boy need? I was amazed how you were so focused tonight on the trains.  Verbally you are slower then others, but physically you are above the curve. I can tell already you are a joker. It is so much fun to watch your personality grow.

One day you might hate this picture, but you are going to be surrounded by sisters, what can we say. I know there is enough boy in you that you stand your ground with all the girls around.

You sure love your sissy. You two play so well together right now. You don't stand for her pushing her way on you, but you two are a blast to watch together. You love mimicking her, even to the point that you will grab her boo and hold him like she does while sucking your fingers. You have adopted boo #2 to be your buddy to sleep with.

 Colton, I am so thankful to call you my son. You are a joy and blessing in our lives.

Payton's Christmas Program

Last night we had Payton's Christmas Program. What a difference a year makes. Last year she wasn't too sure about all the people. This year she thought it was cool that she got to sing from the stage that "Daddy preaches from."

30 weeks!

We are 30 weeks along in this pregnancy! I feel more myself (emotionally) then I have yet this whole pregnancy. A girlfriend yesterday even said I seemed more myself, had more energy and glow that is normal for me. Physically I am, well, I am 30 weeks prego and feeling it. I have been trying to stay active doing my boot camp (a very mini version of it) and I think I did too many squats the other day because my pelvic bone felt like it had a baseball bat taken to it. I am trying to find good exercises for the 3rd trimester, let me know if you have any!

I am so thankful for how good I feel now, especially the emotional/hormonal side. I can handle physical discomfort, the emotional part sends me for a loop. 

The other day I realized that my mind is telling me I should be having a baby any day. As Sister was due Dec 29th and Buster Dec 24th. My mind thinks "hey I am big and prego, it is Christmas time, I should be having a baby." WRONG, you have over 2 months to go!

Merry Christmas to me :)

I ordered a gift for myself 2 months ago and it finally came! I knew it shipped a few days ago and I have been watching the mail! I have been wanting a monogrammed necklace and took a long time to decide exactly which one as I wanted it to be classic and something I would wear for a long time.  It wasn't cheap either (for a deal girl like me) but I have money saved up still from last Christmas and birthday, so it was time to spoil myself a bit. I got a Moon and Lola Monogrammed necklace from Swell Caroline. I am so pleased with it. My daily jewelry has become so simple, this might just become the newest every-day-wear piece for me.
