Pear Painting

My parents came up this weekend and my mom wanted a pear painting, so this is what we came up with. Of course Parker wanted to paint too, so here is his creation.

New Paintings

These three paintings have been my projects over the last few weeks. The pear painting is my biggest project yet. It is 4 ft. x 4 ft. We're going to attempt to hang it tonight. Once again, I have to give props to Amanda for the great idea!

Gigi and Papa Russ's Pool

Oh how we love to go to Gigi and Papa Russ's pool (especially when it is super duper hot and I'm super duper prego). We had such a fun time with Jane & Carrie and Kelli, Drew, & Benjamin (and of course Gigi)! It makes the hot summer days so much more enjoyable when you can cool off in a pool! Thanks Gigi.

This kid keeps us laughing. Today he was pretending to be a soccer player. He gave Patrick the name of "Piso" and me the name of "diva." Where did those names come from? Who knows. He is also trying to avoid taking naps at all. He likes to play on his bed and "pretend." Each day nap time brings a new adventure. Some days he pretends his bed is the Wiggles' big red car and he drives it places. Other days he is a cowboy and he feeds his three horses (Cota, Dusty, and Trot). On Friday he was "Dr. Parker", so when I checked on him I had to refer to him as such. When he is missing his Daddy, he'll ask me to be his "pretend Daddy" and then ask "when will my real Daddy be home." Oh the mind of a two (almost three) year old.

Potty Training:
We're hanging in there...making progress. He is in "big boy underwear" but not without one accident a day. It's a work in progress.

I realized I haven't blogged at all about this pregnancy since we found out we're having a boy. I'll be 33 weeks pregnant tomorrow (I had Parker at 38 weeks). We've decided on the name Griffin Patrick. Parker is really pumped (and so are we)!

We're in and have no boxes left. There is still lots of organizing to be done. We've been doing lots of yard work. We're trying to get things knocked off our to do list before Griffin gets here.
