So we just recently found out that I am pregnant again :). I am just over 12 weeks along and I am due June 25th. We are really excited the babies are only going to be about 17 months apart which is going to be a little challenging but its going to be fun. Here is an ultrasound pictures from when I was about 9 1/2 weeks :)!!
So Thatcher had a huge blow out the other day and it was so funny cause Karson had to change him and he was really grossed out. It smelt pretty bad, it went all up his back luckily we were at home so we could just throw him in the tub to get all the poop off it was quite a family adventure.
So sorry its been so long since I've updated its been pretty crazy. Thatcher was a giraffe for halloween he was suppose to be a monkey but karson left his costume at our church when we had our trunk or treat so he ended up being a giraffe. We went to krista and adams trunk or treat and karsons parents were in town it was a lot of fun and thatch got a bunch of great candy that me and karson got to eat.
So this week has been full of a lot of those bitter sweet moments that you get with your children as they grow up. My little guy is so independent he likes to make his own decisons. This week he learned the meaning of no and lets just say he has quite a temper. Its like hes already two and throwing these little fits when you take something away :). He also decided this week that he was done nursing, luckily for me he will eat anything and he took formula with no problem. About a month ago he decided that he no longer wanted his binki, which was good for us cause we dont have to try and break the habit. He has also learned to sit up all on his own. I walked into his room after he took a nap and there he was sitting up in his crib playing with a toy it was so cute, but sad at the same time cause it just shows how big hes getting. He is crawling everywhere now and he can say uh-oh its really cute, he will wave sometimes and give you five sometimes its really fun. We took him to the doc this week for his 9 month check up and he weighs 18 lbs and 12 oz which is what he weighed last time but they said because hes moving a round alot they dont gain weight as fast. I mean he eats tons he will eat three containers of food a day plus rice cereal and like 5 bottles so I think hes getting enough to eat. He is 28 1/2 inches long so he grew about and inch. So there a little update on our sweet little boy. Me and Karson are doing great to just enjoying Chicago its starting to get really cold here which is kinda sad I already miss summer. Its pretty here in the fall our street is tree lined and all the leaves have changed and have started to fall off the trees. Karson has been pretty busy with work but he is learning a lot which is good cause thats why were here. Well there a little update on our family :)!!!!
So I was doing the laundry one day and I decided to put Thatcher in the basket and he loved it so here are some pictures of him just chillin in the laundry basket :). Also Karson was playing the guitar for Thatcher and of course he loved that so here are some cute pictures of them together.
We got some pictures taken of cute little Thatcher. He is about 7 1/2 months in these pictures and he looks so cute so I thought that I would post them for everyone to see :)!!! These are just my favorite ones but I posted all of them on my facebook so if you want to see the rest of the photo shoot you can look there. So he finally has teeth now, hes got 2 on the bottom coming. He is also doing this really funny army crawl but he can pretty much get whatever he want between the rolling and his cute crawl. He is so much fun and we really enjoy having his sweet little spirit in our home even when hes screaming at the top of his lungs (he has a good pair of lungs).
So I dressed Thatcher all up in this cute little polo and he reminded me so much of Karson. We went to the doctor last week and I have his measurements he is 18lbs 13ozs and 27 1/2 inches long so he has grown a ton. I could tell that he had gained weight because he is so heavy to carry around. He is getting better at rolling over now I can tell its probably not going to be long till hes crawling cause he already getting his legs under him and tries to move himself so once he figures it out I'm going to be chasing him around the house but its going to be fun.
Thatcher turned 6 months this week, its crazy how fast time goes by. We started him on rice cereal about 2 weeks ago and he did awesome so we started him on green beans this week and we had our camera all ready for his great reaction and we got nothing, not a weird face or anything he just ate away. I am grateful that hes eating baby food great but I was a little disappointed that he didn't do anything funny. Of course he looks cute with food all over his month :). I don't have his weight or height yet because we just our insurance set up so we need to get him an appointment, but hes getting huge so I'll post them when I get them. Here are some cute pictures of him.
So we have move to Chicago. I finally have everything pretty much unpacked. We love it here, and to be honest I am kinda surprised that I like it so much. When Karson first decided that he wanted to go to Chicago I was a little hesitant but I prayed about it and I remember feeling that everything was going to be ok so I told him to go for it and it has been the best decision. He loves his program he has already seen all these surgies and he comes home happy and excited from work every day. He cant wait to call his dad and tell him all the new things he saw that day its so cute. Then theres our apartment I've never lived anywhere that felt so much like a home and not an apartment its so nice to want to come home everyday. The area is really nice me and Thatch go for walks and go to the park its crazy I thought that moving to Chicago would be really scary (which there are scary parts) but where we live it is really nice and its only about 10-15 mintues aways from Karsons work which is great, cause if any of you know Karson very well you will know how much he hates traffic and comuting :). So moving here really has been a blessing for our little family. Well I promised Toni that I would put pictures of our apartment up so here they are:
