Feet Print Ghosts

We did a fun Halloween craft the other day...feet print ghosts!! It was a super easy craft, but the boys still really enjoyed it. It probably had something to do with the fact that we painted their feet! :) They thought that was SO fun! I was planning on only doing one foot of each boy, but they really wanted to do both feet so why not? Dylan excitedly offered his stump to paint since we hadn't put his leg on yet. I LOVE his little stumpy print! 

I let the boys paint each others second foot/stump.

I think they turned out SUPER cute! Kaden painted his name on both of his papers all by himself! Fun craft!

Cute after we did all four prints, Dylan pointed out that his stumpy print was a circle. Kaden looked at me and said, "Mom, mine is different! What shape is mine?" I thought it was too cute that Kaden thought HIS foot print was the "different" one, as opposed to Dylan's lone stumpy print being the "different" one. :)

Wheelbarrow & Stumpy Skills

We got Dylan his trick or treat pumpkin for Halloween and he is obsessed with it. Carries around with him everywhere. So cute!

We had fun doing wheelbarrow with the boys the other night. They had a lot of fun too, as you can see!

While Bryson was doing wheelbarrow with Kaden, Dylan started walking around on his stumpy. He's been doing it more and more, here and there, but this was like, full on walking on his stumpy. Since Dylan has a much shorter femur on top of his shorter tibia, he has a MASSIVE difference between his good leg and his stumpy. Do you see how his leg has to be bent in an almost 90 degree angle in order for his stumpy to touch the ground? That takes some serious muscle! We're pretty impressed!

While Bryson was changing Dylan's diaper earlier tonight, he was pretending to eat Dylan's toes and stumpy saying that he was eating cookies and ice cream. Dylan was laughing and laughing. Even after he was done changing his diaper, Dylan kept sticking his stumpy up saying "Ice cream! hahaha" and Bryson would pretend to eat his yummy yummy ice cream stumpy! haha.

The Secret Is Out!

We've been keeping a secret, but it's time to tell the world!

It's true, it's true! We are SO excited to announce that we are expecting baby #3! The official due date is April 25th, which makes me 12 weeks along. We are so excited and can't wait to welcome this little baby into our family! We made that video right after we found out we were pregnant and that is how we shared the exciting news with our immediate families (making them promise to keep it a secret with us for a little bit longer). It was fun to hear their reactions as it clicked what we were trying to tell them. :)

Sweet pictures of the little one from our appointment today!! How cool is technology!! :)

We found out we were pregnant when I was just barely 4 weeks along and it has not been an easy 8 weeks. I had pretty easy pregnancies with the two boys. Barely ever got even the slightest bit sick with Kaden, had heartburn but even that was on the mild side. With Dylan I felt icky more often than with Kaden, but it was only occasionally at nights and never anything severe. The heartburn with Dylan was way worse than with Kaden though. This one I have been super sick/queasy ALL day long EVERY single day. I luckily have never thrown up, but have had a few occasions when I had to run to the bathroom thinking I for sure was going to. I have felt, quite often, that I would love to throw up because maybe it would offer a little relief, but at the same time, who really wants to throw up. :) However, the past week I have been feeling ever so slightly better and any better is a welcome relief. I have had moments here and there in the past week where I feel pretty decent and even when I am feeling sick, the severity seems to be getting better. So YAY!! I honestly don't know how you other women who have it worse off than I have had it can handle it. Especially when you have other kids (it's so hard to be mom when all you feel like doing is laying very still and not moving all day long!!). Props to all the women out there!! :) I'm excited to start feeling better and start enjoying the pregnancy a little more with the added relief. But honestly, I can't complain. I'm carrying a child! That alone is just the coolest thing and it never gets old thinking about that miracle. I feel incredibly grateful that the baby is doing well and that I am, overall, doing good too.

Kaden and Dylan are excited about the "baby in mommy's belly"! Kaden understands what is going on for the most part and likes to put his ear on my belly and tell me that he can hear the baby crying. haha. Dylan likes to copy whatever Kaden is doing or saying about the baby. They both like to say hi to the baby by talking to my belly. It's very cute! I can't wait for the baby to get bigger and for them to be able to feel it moving inside of me.

We Love Stumpies

We like stumpies in this house. :) The boys think it's hilarious when we are getting them dressed and their arms or feet get stuck in the clothes. They will yell out "STUMPY!! I have a stumpy!!" and they both laugh and laugh and laugh and play around with their "stumpy". I think it's cute. Bryson got a cute video of them the other night. I like how when Bryson asks Dylan where his stumpy is, he makes one with his hand instead of pointing out his "real" stumpy. haha.
