15 months & 35 weeks

Tyler makes my job as his mom so very entertaining.  He is 15 months old and it absolutely blows my mind how much he can do now.  He has of course been walking for almost 5 months now, he runs everywhere, climbs on everything, and is generally Mr. Destructive. If it ain't broke, it will be.  He's very into climbing on the kitchen chairs, his high chair, and the oven door is his new favorite.  He has recently started "talking" a lot more and i wish i had some clue what he was saying but between the sounds and pointing i can sometimes figure out what it is he's trying to tell me.  His favorite game is a game called "touchdown" or "tuh-dah" which involves throwing a ball across the room, backyard, just about anywhere. The kid would live outside. He LOVES it out there.  He has just started throwing his shoes at me when he wants to go out and play. It would be a lot nicer if there weren't dog poop everywhere in our back yard because he has no concept of staying in the front and i'm far too fat to be chasing him out of everything.  I can't wait to see him interact with his sister and i can't believe by the time he's 16 months old she should be here.  Its just crazy!!  If you ask him "where's sissy?", he will pull my shirt up, stick his finger in my belly button and laugh. But i'm pretty sure he thinks everyone has a sissy in their tummy.  It's cute.

He is wearing size 3 diapers, size 12 month clothes for the most part.  He's over 31" tall at my last check and around 19.5 lbs. The kid has GOT to gain some weight. He still likes pizza and loves his mommy's chicken salad and nutrigrain bars. If he sees a drink, he wants some of it, no matter what it is.  He's also very musical and into drums, guitars, and likes to sing along with Elmo.

He is such a sweet little guy when he wants to be, but he can be very high maintenance too. We're currently tryign to get him back on a decent sleep schedule so that when Emily gets here i'm not dying of sleep deprivation.

I am now 35 weeks and 3 days pregnant with our little lady.  We had a little bit of a high blood pressure scare last week but everything was fine this week. She loves to show off at the dr.  I had my group b strep test yesterday and did another non-stress test which she passed with flying colors.  Next week tyler will be going to the dr for his well visit with b while i go have my appt for her.  The week after that we'll be checking on her growth and hopefully she's still doing well. Lord knows i feel like i'm the size of a house.  As of yesterday i've gained 28 lbs and all is well in that department. It's all getting very real and she will be here soon!!
