Still no Lilly

Well, Lilly has officially past her "due date."
Exactly what I hoped wouldn't happen...and really didn't expect to happen after going early with Owen.
But as they say: "Every pregnancy is different." and "The baby will come when she's ready."
Induction Date = December 7th
(but hopefully that can be avoided and she will come on her own by then)
Here's the belly shot:

The Unexpected

Owen and I made a quick stop at Dollar General on the way home from the Y this morning. We made our purchases, headed to the van to load up and go home. I was just putting the key in the ignition and buckling up when I looked up and saw this little elderly lady with a couple big bags in her hands waving me down, asking me to wait. I quickly thought over what I had brought in the store and couldn't think of anything that I might have left or dropped...believe it or not, I've been known to leave things behind before. :) I rolled down my window and she began digging around in one of her bags with a big grin. "Where is it?" she muttered under her breath.

A second or two later and she looked up at me and sort of strained her neck to look towards Owen saying, "I saw your little guy eye-ing something in there and I just couldn't resist," and pulled out a toy truck. "Happy Thanksgiving," she said.

How sweet....she made both Owen and I's day. :)

Sorry, I forgot and shot this sideways.

When Momma is sick...

Owen gets a play day with Daddy!!

...doing "boy" things...

you know, like watching tractors and animals on youtube.

Jimmy took yesterday off work because I was up all night with the flu and in no shape to be taking care of Owen. I slept pretty much all day, and the boys played. Owen had a blast having Daddy around all day to dote on him. I kept hearing "Dada, dada" whenever I'd wake up enough to hear them playing. I'm thankful they had the extra time together. I think Jimmy enjoyed being "Mr. Mom."

Thankfully, Lilly is waiting to make her grand debut until I get better. I can't imagine trying to go through labor at the same time as fighting the flu. Hopefully, now I'm on the up-swing and she can come sometime Thanksgiving week! Pray the rest of our family stays healthy for her arrival.

New Nook

Here's Owen sitting on top of his new toy box. For about an hour this morning he's been getting books and climbing on top of the big box to look at his book of choice.

Just Dance

Tonight Owen finished eating supper before us and wandered into the living room. The TV was playing music videos and we looked over to find Owen dancing away.

Here's his latest move:


Today we made playdough. Now, don't let these pictures give you the wrong impression. Eventhough we did get to some rolling and patting, his default activity while playing with the playdough was trying to eat it. :) ...always followed with an ugly face of disgust at the saltiness of it.

It took a while to come in, but Owen now has a nice head of blonde hair. Daddy was having some fun with it in the bathtub tonight.

I think Owen likes our new refrigerator as much as I do. His favorite feature is the ice coming out of the dispenser on the door. Whenever he hears someone dispensing ice/water out of it, he comes running to watch. Recently, he started asking for "ice"....ALL the time! Don't worry, we give him TINY pieces of crushed ice that practically melt as soon as he gets them to he mouth.

The footage on this video isn't the greatest, but it was the best I could get last night. He was sooo wiggly and kept getting waaay to close to the camera.

Here's a few things to "decode" in this video:

1. His reference to "hand"--clenching his hands. We were reading a book earlier in the evening with a hand in it and this was his way to sign "hand."

2. His newest word- "ice"

3. "mees"--is his current "please". It's a combination for "more" and "please" right now....we'll get there :)

All Bundled Up

Who could resist?

Puppy Love

These two have become good buddies as of late.
