Boys and Bicycles

I had a doctor's appointment today and passed my sugar test!  Woo hoo!  I seriously don't think I could have done the 3 hour test... it is NOT a fun thing because you can't eat at all before it and then it makes you nauseous after you drink the concoction they give you.  Gross.  Anyway, I had to take Tucker with me to the appointment because Daddy had a big job this morning.  Very interesting, we'll put it that way.  Baby T's heart rate was 154 and I did not even look to see how much I weigh because my day wasn't going very well anyway, so I thought it best to not make it any worse.

The picture below is one I've been meaning to post for a while.  One morning Tucker and I decided to take a walk around the neighborhood.  He wanted to ride his bicycle- and what boy can ride a bike without wearing a super hero cape?!  As you can probably imagine this turned in to quite the disaster.  About 2 blocks away Tucker decided that his "brakes don't work."  In other words, his legs were hurting because we were going up a slight hill.  So he had to get off the bike and push it the whole way home.  The whole way home while whining and complaining about it.  Pregnant momma can NOT push your bike and carry you home!  Sorry!  And I thought that having a boy meant I wouldn't get paid back for what I put my mom through!  Wrong!  So wrong!

Love him, though.  You just can't help but love him!

Less than 4 Months to Go!

Well, just like most moms to second babies, I have been slacking a little on documenting this new precious baby we are waiting on:

I go in for my sugar test tomorrow...yuck.  And then hopefully my next appointment we will get to do the 4D ultrasound.  He is kicking a good bit now, which is one of the only things about pregnancy that I like.  
This is a rear view... yes, he is definitely a boy!
Sweet feet :)
My due date is January 21st, but it will be a scheduled C-section, so she will take him at least a week early.  Which is pretty exciting!  For those of you who are hoping to see pictures of my belly: don't hold your breath.  I am not in to pictures of myself at all right now!

My Super Hero...and crickets

It's been quite a while since I've posted anything so I will have to play a little bit of catch up.  First of all, Fall is in the air and I am in LOVE with it!!  SO thankful for cooler weather!  

So Tucker wants to be a super hero, as I am sure most little boys do.  We often have to rig up dress up for him to be whatever super hero he loves that day.  Not real sure who he wanted to be this day, but he was insistent on the belt, which is what makes this so funny to me.  And hands on the hips is always his super hero pose.

And then last night, we received the Halloween costume in the mail.  I'm not sure that I have ever seen him more excited.  You know... the reaction I'm looking for on Christmas morning when there is a four wheeler sitting in front of the Christmas tree, but he ignores that and goes for the $5 pirate ship sitting beside it.  Anyway, it was precious, so of course we immediately opened it up to try it on.
(Mirror in the back is disgusting)

He could not keep his eyes off of himself!
Of course he wanted to sleep in the costume and he has worn it off and on all day today.  He's pretty sure with those muscles he can beat anybody up!

Tucker has also had his first "cricket" in his neck. :)  Since he is rather dramatic (no idea where that comes from), it has been a pretty serious injury.

And on a kind of sad note, I am going back to work Monday.  A job just kind of landed in my lap so I am going to try it.  Tucker will start at a new daycare Friday.  We went together to check it out this morning and he liked it.  I'm hoping it is a smooth transition.  Pretty sure it will be much more difficult for me than it is for him.  Even though part of me is kind of excited about being a grown-up and accomplishing something.  I'm going to try to keep up the blog posts, but we shall see how that works out!

"Camping Out"

A couple Sunday nights ago I let Tucker bring his tent in to the living room.  He gets really bored when we stay around the house all day on Sundays.  He always wants to build a tent, so he thought this was the coolest thing ever!  Cameron went in from the waist up...I tried to get in but I'm so claustrophobic I couldn't stand it.  
I wish this picture wasn't blurry.  It's so cute!

Friends and Football in Fairhope

Some really awesome friends of ours invited us to their house on the bay in Fairhope for Labor Day weekend.  We had such a wonderful time, seriously.  Some other friends came along as well with their three boys...thank goodness!  Because they entertained Tucker all weekend.  He actually cried on the way home because he missed Drew and Dalton!  We are just so blessed with friends that love our child- through all of his never-ending talking and asking for snacks and juice, etc!  It was just an easy weekend, stress-free, lots of good food...and of course, the first Alabama football game!!

Seriously...does it get any better than this?!
Cameron on the slide...I wanted to ride SO bad!
