Fun at the Fair




We took Jack to the McLean Co fair last night. He was so excited you would have thought we were in Disney World!!! He loved riding the pony and all the kiddie rides. He also liked seeing all the animals there.

My Sweet Boy

We try and let Jack help us with pretty much anything we are doing around the house now because it makes him feel so special and he thinks he is such a BIG boy when he gets to do mommy and daddy stuff. He also likes to say 'I do it myself'
Well anyway Jack and I were making coffee yesterday morning and I made some for him in his special Starbucks cup from Aunt Hedur. As he was climbing down off the chair to go drink his coffee he said "Thankyou mommy, you are the best coffee maker!" What a little cutie!! I loved it. It made me laugh.
He said a similar thing on Friday night. We had gotten him Rockband for the WII for his birthday. Well we were in the gamestore and he was getting upset because he saw those games sitting there and he really wanted it. Poor Mark desperate to not have him cause a scene said 'we already bought it and it's in the car.' Thinking he would forget about it by the time we got home. Oh no he did not forget about it!! He talked about it all the way home. So we gave it to him early. We video taped the reveal and he was jumping up and down saying 'yes, yes!' He ran to me and hugged me and then ran to Mark and hugged him. I decided to turn off the camera just as Jack said 'I am so excited' We started laughing so hard. So I turned the camera back on but of course he didn't say it agian. However a couple minutes later he did say, 'Mommy, you are the bestest mommy EVER!' I think we could have gotten him to do anything at that moment because he was so excited to be getting his drums!!!

"Baby Betty"

We are now obsessed with baby girl names since we found out we are having a girl. I thought we had the name figured out but of course those of you who remember when I was pregnant with Jack we named him Franklin and then about a month before I had him I decided to change it to Jack. Franklin was for my Papa Frank. I was being sentimental. Well I had told everyone that the baby was going to be Ryan Beckam. Beckam was for my sister Becky. She is my twin and we have been best friends for 30 years! She also happens to be Jax favorite person in the whole world. He calls her Betty since he can't say his ck's yet. Anyway we decided that we just didn't love the name Beckam and Becky is such a hard name to find different variations of. So I am not going to be able to name the baby after her after all. That's ok though because I am sure our baby girl will love her just as much as Jack does!!! She says that is honor enough.
I think I need to learn to just not tell people what the name is because I change it so much!! I just get excited, you know!?
Last night I asked Jack what we should name our baby girl and he said, "Baby Betty!" So cute!!!!

It's a GIRL!!!!!


We had our 20 week sonogram yesterday which most of you know is the one that you get to find out the gender of the baby. At our 12 week sonogram the doctor told us if she had to guess by what she saw she would say it was a boy. So all this time I really did think it was a boy. Well we were in the middle of the sono and the doctor is checking all the measurements (which were all good-baby is measuring right on target) and I told the doctor(a different one from the previous sono at 12 weeks) that I know it's a boy. 'He said oh do ya!?' Becky said 'I know it's a girl.' So he preceeds to search quietly...I asked him if the baby wasn't cooperating...he said 'oh I already know what your having, I'm just trying to get the best view for you.' Then Mark was like 'Oh- I don't know- I don't see a wiener!?' Then the doctor said 'Ok see right here...one, two..three lines- IT"S A GIRL!!!' I started sobbing! I said 'oh I really wanted a girl.' Becky high fived me and Mark said' I knew it!'

Needless to say we were very excited and surprised.

I went out and had a little shopping spree and bought lot's of pink.

We're Back!!!!!





We are back from our vacation to Disney World! It was such a great time. Jack had a blast. It was very tiring but tons of fun. It was so good to see my friend Vicky and her family. Her son James was so cute and smiled all the time. Here are a few pictures. I just went through them quick. I will post more when I go through them and edit them a bit.
