7 Weeks Out

7 weeks till just the three of us becomes the four of us...

Baby Girl is moving and shaking and continues to grow. We haven't had any problems (knock on wood) and she remains on track for an early January delivery. Send a prayer, good vibes or whatever floats your boat that she stays put and healthy till well after the new year.

One rather HILARIOUS gift has appeared for baby girl, courtesy of a good friend we met through Will's school. I have given up on having any of my children ever consider A&M or rooting for the Aggies as my husband starts the brainwashing early. Apparently, so does our friend Beth.

Yes, this is a UT onsie complete with orange and white tutu and Longhorn shoes. She also made baby girl three cute bows and a bow board. Bows? Pink stuff? What am I going to do?

The nursery is in progress... Will is like a drill sergeant. He wants to "work" in there after school and all weekend. We have washed car seats, bouncers, play toys etc. Meanwhile, I am at the point in the pregnancy where getting up and down from the floor quickly is challenging.

Will enjoyed registering for a few things at Babies R Us - namely he used the scanner and would pick random things such as an angry birds tennis racquet - to register for. I had a lot of editing to do that evening online. The "Minnie Mouse" bath towel he picked out arrived and apparently he wants to use it first.

Happy Halloween (only a month late)

Happy Halloween Y'all! We got back from Disney World on Oct. 30 and moved right into Halloween festivities. Will was pooped from the trip, but not too tired - I think the candy was quite appealing.

Halloween started off rainy in Houston and his school moved the Halloween parade inside, thankfully!

The Parade went through the school and around the covered deck. Cousin Cameron is right in front of Will and Will's awesome teacher held his hand to make sure he didn't have a cowboy sized crash.

Special snack after the parade

We went trick-or-treating to a few houses on our street with some neighborhood friends and then called it a night.

Our next door neighbor's grandson, who Will loves, was "roaring" with Will.

Discussing the best candy route with Lighting McQueen and Cinderella.

Checking out his loot
Every morning before school Will would pick out a piece of candy to have for dessert that night. He would literally walk in the house from school and immediately ask for his one piece of candy.
This boy loves dessert.
