Summer is finally here!!!

Before the summer if over I thought I would update what has been going on this month before I have the baby and forget everything that has happened. I will be 36 weeks pregnant this Friday!!! Time has gone by insanely fast. It seems like just yesterday I went for my 20 week ultrasound and then it also feels like yesterday I took a test to find out I was pregnant which was actually on my birthday that I found out (Nov 26). This baby will be here before we know it. We are very excited and a little nervous about how the 2 kid thing will be (sometimes I have a hard enough time keeping track of 1 kid). It will be so nice for Riley to have a little playmate. We have told him about the baby and that he will be a big brother but I don't think he really understands what that is all about yet. He is starting to say baby whenever he sees a picture of a baby in one of his books so I am sure he knows what a baby is he is just not sure how it will be living with a baby but will find out soon.

This month it finally stopped raining!! Jesse is finally getting some hours at work. It was so annoying when he would work like 3-4 hours a day and sometimes he wouldn't even work because it was so wet. He has been trying to find a job as a landscape technologist (what he went to school for) not as a landscaper, there is a big difference. Some people think all he does is landscaping which he does now but a technologist make more money and they don't have to be out in the hot sun doing all the hard manual labour. They do the designs and then other people are hired to do all the hard work.

I am in my final month of pregnancy with just over 4 weeks left. I feel great!! I love this weather but don't enjoy the really hot hot days! I just like it warm with a nice breeze.

Here is a picture of me at 27 weeks so just about 6 1/2 months pregnant. I need to take an updated picture which I will post soon.

These are Riley's favorite toys these days. He always gets these same things out every day and pretends he is making something. He stirs his pretend food in the measuring cups and pots and pretends to pour food from the cans. It's really cute!!

Riley's head was starting to be really sweaty when I would get him up in the morning so we decided it was time for his first buzz cut!! He held still the entire time which I wasn't expecting at all!! He loved it and thought it was so cool to have his hair like his daddy's.

He loves his hair and is always rubbing his hand over it over and over again lol!

We put Riley in his big boy bed the end of April but I never ever was able to get a picture of him in it then because he wouldn't stay in it. So two months later we finally have one!! He loves his big boy bed!!

I love him!! He is such a big boy now and looks so much more grown up with his haircut!!

Riley and Mommy

Riley and Daddy

Riley and Mommy after church!! Don't have very many pictures of me with him since he rarely holds still. I am glad to finally have a few.

Riley at the ledge doing his classic 2 year old look! He is mad at Jesse for trying to get him to hold still for a picture. I kept trying to take some and he just kept walking away so we didn't get many.

He will never look at the camera!!

He loves my seashell necklace. He wore it this day for like 5 or 6 hours and wouldn't take it off and if I tried he would scream lol!

We were slowly trying to go through baby things and Riley loved playing with the baby tub. This was a few months ago as you can tell by the fleecy pjs.

We went to the Zoo in Edmonton 2 or 3 weeks ago and ever since we went there Riley loves animals so much. He has finally started saying some animal sounds. He knows what the sounds a horse, monkey, snake, lion, sheep, cow, duck, and tiger make. For a cow he thinks it says booo instead of mooo! A horse to him says Kneee instead of neigh. For the longest time when he would say a cow or horse sound we had no idea he was trying to make the same sound they make. It's so cute. Now if we could just get him to talk. He doesn't say much at all except for those animal sounds, mum, dad, no, he can kind of say baby. That is pretty much all though so I hope he talks soon. I am not sure if I should be worried that he isn't really talking or not. Anyone have any suggestions????

Riley also loves going for walks, he could walk all night all over the Co-op (our housing complex) if we let him. He loves to walk, he will hardly go in a stroller or wagon when we go for walks. He loves blowing bubbles which can last for hours some days ( need to get a bubble machine), he loves sidewalk chalk and playing with his climber and water table. He loves the outdoors so much that it makes me wonder what we did all winter lol!! I will try and get some good pictures of him playing in the yard before I have this baby as not much will get taken for awhile after that. That is my update, I have more to update about the first part of July but will once I can upload pictures!!

  1. Scoty didnt talk very soon either....one day it just happened, I dont think that you need to worry too much, he is just two....by the time Scoty turned three he was a talking machine and now makes so much sense, I hardly have to ask him to repeat himself so I know what he is actually saying! Dont stress, it will come, boys develop slower than girls!
