The Park

Evan loves the park. He loves to run through the soccor field and swing.
We try to visit the neighborhood park every night after dinner. If I ask Evan if he wants to go outside he drops whatever he's doing and races to the door. I love this picture of Dad and Evan swinging. I live for this.

My boy is nearly 14 months. Tonight is the 3rd night without the bedtime bottle. I'm pleased to report that it's gone pretty well. He didn't cry for it or whine at all. He does seem to stay awake in his crib a bit longer before dozing off. Right now he's playing with his musical elephant, I can hear it through the baby monitor.
I've had to come to grips with something that took me far too long to accept. My child is not a snuggler. He WAS a snuggler from 0 to say 6 months. Since then he's squirmed and wriggled when I've tried to rock him before bed. In the end I just lay him in bed and he falls asleep within 15 minutes without a fight. I'm glad that he's independent and can soothe himself in many cases BUT....that leaves this mama just a bit sad that he doesn't want to snuggle. I'll survive.
Each night I would try to rock him, even for a couple of minutes, but he wasn't interested. Although some pretty heart-warming moments happened during those attempts. Sometimes he'll cover my face in kisses and I can see his grin in the dark. Sometimes he'll play with my hair or necklace or even nuzzle my cheek with his head. I soak up those moments. Then I have to put him in his crib because he gets too rambunctious.
This is just another way he is showing me his personality and his individuality. My little guy is growing up so fast.

Baby #2 Ultrasound

So, I got to see our baby today. Of course it was exciting to see the little add to the excitement....the technician said I was actually further along than they originally thought based on the information I had given them. I woke up today thinking I was 11 weeks. I left the doctor's office actually 13 weeks along! I know that's just 2 weeks but it's 2 weeks!
Hearing the heartbeat and seeing the little peanut floating around in my belly makes it all feel even more real. I feel more connected to the baby in there and I am even more excited about him/her joining our family. I'll start taking belly pics now that I am showing. I already feel like I am speeding through this pregnancy. Probably because my crazy little toddler keeps me busy!
