My baby boy is getting so big...

Yes, we are proud parents, Jacob has learned how to ride his bike (with training wheels of course). Tonight for FHE we went to the park and Jacob rode around the whole park, which is about a mile, he's now fast asleep in bed. And I soon will be too, he's pretty fast. Matt had to speed walk the mile to keep up and I waddled 10-15 yards behind.

These pics are actually from the other day, I forgot my camera tonight. And we do have some videos of him riding (I just don't know how to upload them). Jacob loves to sit and watch his mad skills on his bike. He likes to point and say "bike, fun and happy" mixed with laughter. He does fall down every now and then, but he doesn't seem to mind. He just gets back up and keeps on going. And the best part is when he gets going really fast, he just laughs and laughs, then we start laughing. It's times like that, that remind me what a blessing it is to be a parent. That something so simple could bring me so much joy.

Is it weird that I feel like I'm gonna miss him once the baby is born?

36 weeks!!

36 weeks! What!?!? I can't believe it's almost time! I'm starting to get very excited, but nervous at the same time. Not nervous about the birth but about life with 2 kids...I was at Target today and was just thinking, okay when I have the baby who do I take out of the car first? baby or toddler? If the car seat is in the shopping cart, and Jacob is buckled up front, where do I put all my stuff???? But I'm sure I'll figure it out. And never leaving the house is not the solution. I've been feeling pretty good, just having a hard time sleeping. But I've had enough energy to still get all my chores done. I have a big fear of this baby being born and my house looking like you know what...By all means I want this baby to be as healthy as can be, but if mopping puts me into labor then so be it. I can even see myself starting to clean once I go into labor just to insure a clean house.

The crib is set up and ready to go...I made her blanket and for my first blanket ever, I think it turned out pretty darn cute.

And this kid already has more clothes than Jacob.

She's now hogging half my side of the closet.

We really enjoyed Easter this year. It was a day filled with fun, excitement and the Spirit.

On Saturday, we colored eggs. It didn't take long before Jacob tipped over one of the cups...

Easter morning, we woke up to our baskets.





Jacob had fun looking for eggs. It took him a few minutes to get into it, but once he did it was a lot of fun! He started throwing the eggs in the basket so hard.

After the easter egg hunt, Shannon made a wonderful breakfast - pancakes, bacon, eggs and fruit.

After breakfast, we went over to Grandma and Grandpa's house. Jacob enjoyed another easter egg hunt there!

After hours of fun, Jacob was so tired that he fell asleep within 5 minutes on the way home.
