24 Weeks

I can't believe I am 25 weeks tomorrow! Time is flying by! I still don't feel that I am much bigger with her than I was with Ty. I think I am carrying slightly higher but other than that I feel about the same. I've been feeling her much more over the last week and can watch my belly dance at times, which is always fun! I've been feeling much better with a few random morning sickness days. Other than that, I finally have enough energy to get back into my work out routine which always feels good! This weekend, I finally got all Ty's crib bedding washed and packed away and Baby Girl's bedding washed. The crib has been raised and in the next week or so I'll get the new bedding in. Yes, I know that I still have 15 weeks, but I can't help but want to see some pink in there :) Ty loves talking about how the nursery is now Baby's room. I can ask him to go put something in baby's room and he'll run straight there and point to everything and say "Baby's (fill in the blank)" haha. Very cute :)

Ty & Ry

Time goes by so quickly and it has seemed forever since Amy and I have gotten the kids together. We have our girls Applebees nights but it's probably been 2 months since the kiddos have seen each other. Ryley is about 4 months younger than Ty and they seem to finally be at an age where they are starting to "interact" and play together. They had so much fun running around on the climber, playing basketball, jumping on tramps, and watching Sesame Street together. It was also a much needed time to catch up for the mommies :) During Sesame Street, Ty reached over and wanted to hold "Wywees" (as he says) hand. So cute!
After seeing them play "together" it made us anxious for summer to be here :) I think it will be here before we know it!

Basement Fun!

Nate got the idea in his head that Ty needed a climber in our basement. What started off as a slide off craigslist (which the people backed out once they accepted our "offer") turned into purchasing a climber that has two little structures, two slides, and a tunnel connecting them. I do have to admit, it is a great way to get some of endless energy out. Ty was SO excited as he saw the boys putting the pieces together. He could barely contain his excitement once he saw that there were slides. He was climbing through the tunnel, running around in circles, flying down the slides (he even figured out how fun it was to go down on his tummy), and climbing, climbing, climbing!

I have a feeling that we will be spending lots of time in the basement this winter!

West Michigan FINALLY got some snow! We had a few flurries here or there, but nothing has stuck on the ground for more than a day. Green and sunny Christmas and New Year's Days just don't feel the same as a white wonderland :) I was very excited to bring Ty out, as this year, he is much more capable of actually playing in the snow. We bundled him up and out we went! Ty loves "mas" (what he calls snow)! We first brought him on the sled and pulled him around the house. He had a major face plant as Nate was running, but Nate wiped away the tears and he wanted to keep going! Ty soon found his love for snowballs! He thought it was the funniest thing throwing them at Nate, having them thrown at him, and of course throwing them at me :)
YAY to more snow fun for the next couple months! I know I will be sick of it soon, so I'm trying to enjoy it right now!
