34 weeks 4 days

Happy Birthday Holden!

Friday, December 16, 2011

Today we celebrated the birthday of the sweetest little boy ever! Jack didn't have any work today {which is a totally different story-he totally got laid off today for lack of work} so he was able to spend the day with us. We started off the day going to Mr. Cooper's house for the day. BUT he woke up sick so his Mommy came home from work and we spent the day just the three of us.

One of Holden's favorite things in the whole world right now is choo-choo twains so we knew we wanted to do something to do with trains for his special day. Well I have been having EXTREME back pain that nothing helps so I didn't really wasn't to go to far in case we needed to head home. Our neighbors had told us about this local train store that they take their son to and he loves. Well it turns out this store is the same place that I had my very first job but we worked out of the guys basement and now he has a store. So we headed there and while we were there he comes running thru the shop saying a train was on its way and to come see it. They are right off a main street so we were right next to the train tracks. Holden was in HEAVEN! I took him outside and sat him on the curb and he just stared the whole time the train went by. This was really his first time seeing a train so close and not in the car and he loved it so much and it totally made his day and mine just knowing how happy he was!

After we left there we ran around and did a few things and visited with his Papa and Mema before heading home. That night we took his to see Santa{which he HATED} and then went over to my parents house for dinner.

It was such a perfect day for such a sweet boy and I know he had so much fun... minus the whole seeing Santa ha!

32 Weeks x's 2

 Today marks 32 weeks for me with sweet baby Rylan! It is super exciting to be this close already but weird to know my sweet Holden will only be the only child for just a few more short weeks. Holden was born at 38 weeks and about 3 days so we will have to wait and see when Mr. Rylan comes to join us. Not much longer until I schedule my c-section either! 
The rest of this year is going to fly by with Holden's birthday and Christmas and our hospital tour{I'm having Rylan at a different hospital than I had Holden at} coming up in a few weeks! 
Today we hung his curtain in his room and my Mom stopped by and helped with a changing pad cover problem I was having.... it was making me crazy! HA! His room is coming together and we just have a few more things we need to get for in there. I also had a friend come over and I helped her make a few Christmas presents for some of her friends and family so I am sooo tired. I am heading to bed as soon as my sheets are dry. Don't you just LOVE clean sheets?? I know so random but whatever! So night all I leave you with a side by side of me pregnant with Holden at 32 weeks and 32 weeks with Rylan.

This and That

 I can not believe that in TWO weeks from today this sweet little boy of mine will be TWO!! I can remember so clearly TWO years ago just waiting for him to get here and being so excited for his arrival. He has been the light of our lives for almost TWO years now and the best thing that has ever happened to Jack and I! Lately he has the funniest little personality and I just want to bottle it up and remember and keep it forever.

 I also can't believe that in less than TWO months we are going to have another little boy to share our love with! I think it still seems so unreal that God has blessed us with another boy! I always thought with Jack and I coming from families of almost all girls we would have girls but I can not even imagine not having these boys! 
It has been so much fun making all of this fun stuff for Rylan! When I was pregnant with Holden, I hadn't really gotten into sewing yet so my Mom made most of the stuff that I used like his bumpers, curtains and boppy cover stuff like that. And this time I am learning how to make everything and it is soo much fun!
A few weeks ago my biggest new sewing adventure was making a boppy cover for my boppy. SUPER easy, yes- installing a zipper on the back, something I had never done and was not as easy first go round with the fabric I has on the back. I REALLY want to make another one to have using different material so I can see how that works. Then maybe sell them on Holden's Hut : )

So here it is! Rylan's boppy cover with his name on it of course : )
