Today is a beautiful, lazy day. I am finishing up a bagel and sipping on coffee while watching my little man take a nap on the monitor. He is just so peaceful when he sleeps, I love it!
Later this afternoon I have a doctor's appointment for baby #2 and I really wish I was finding out the gender. Being 17 weeks they could technically tell, but I am assuming my doctor will make an ultrasound appointment for 20 weeks. I am just impatient since I found out Fletcher was a boy when I was only 15 weeks! I have never been good at waiting! I want to start buying things and planning the nursery.
Speaking of the nursery we were thinking about putting little nugget with Fletcher when he/she is born, but I just don't think that is going to happen. First of all Fletcher is an extremely light sleeper, and to be quite frank, I want to plan another nursery. I love looking at colors, ideas, and murals for the future nursery. I do think since both kids will be close in age they could share when they are older and baby #3 (if that happens) is on the way, but for now they can have their own space.
Tonight my family, with my parents and my brother and his girlfriend Cyndi are going to a music in the park thing. It will be nice to get out, have a picnic and enjoy some music. I can't wait!
I should probably shower before I start hearing "Mama, Mama, Mama" on the monitor! Have a great day everyone!
No post would be complete without a picture of Fletch. Just look at this lips, eyelashes, nose, skin...haha. I think he is just the cutest!

1. What is your current favorite tv show?
Hmm, I like to watch TV but during the summer it kind of stinks. I saw that The Marriage Ref starts again on Sunday and I love that show!
2. What's the worst haircut you ever got?
I used to have hair that was spiky in the back and pretty short. At the time I thought it was awesome, but awesome it was not!
3. What was something that you did as a child that you thought you were so cool for doing?
Playing hockey, but I was cool for doing that. :p
4. Do you have any GREAT frugal family fun tips?
Plan a menu out in advance! It helps us eat healthier, look for deals before we go to the grocery store, and my husband loves knowing what we are going to have for dinner! It has really helped us save money!
5. Would you drive across country if you had the money to fly?
Yes, I actually prefer to drive...especially with a baby!
|He loves driving, even though it doesn't look like it!|

I can't believe you are two months away from being ONE. ONE? No, I can't almost have a one year old! Craziness! I am sorry little man that this is a week or so late, but you at ten months are quite the handful! I wouldn't have it any other way! I think ten months has so far been my favorite month!
You have changed so much in the last couple of weeks I can hardly keep up! You went from having no teeth, and one month later you are now sporting five shiny new ones...and boy are they sharp! You love to show us your new teeth and you do a new crazy smile nonstop! It is hilarious! Anytime I take out my phone you put your hands up, close your eyes and smile while making sure we see your teeth. You are FUNNY!
You still aren't the best sleeper in the world, but naps sure have improved! You love your crib, and even though I miss you in our room, I am happy that you love your own bed and room. You play, play, play in it until all of a sudden you pass out. You sleep around an hour in the morning and anywhere from an hour to an hour an a half in the afternoon. You have started going to bed at eight and even though you wake up a couple of times a night you still are doing much better. Thank you baby boy for almost always sleeping until 7:30 in the morning!
You are also a wonderful eater, but I don't think that surprises anyone. You love people food, and so far your favorites are eggs (doc gave the ok :), bananas, any sort of cracker, rice, and fruits of all kinds! You aren't as interested in your bottle and are only taking about 4-6 ounces three times a day. You would much rather have water. To say you are obsessed with water is an understatement.
All that eating is making you grow like crazy! You are now wearing 18 months and 2T. 2T? Come on Fletch, you are only 10 months! I can't believe you are officially in toddler clothing. My big boy!
Your new favorite activity is going to the park and swinging. Although how you like to lean forward and kick your little feet like crazy makes your Grandma Kac nervous, you LOVE it! I think it is hilarious to watch you. You get so into things, and I have a feeling we are going to have to put you in lots of activities because you seem to love doing new things!
You are pulling up great and you still want to stand all the time. I think by your first birthday you will be walking. You seem to have quite the interest in it and now that you have mastered crawling, that is next on the list.
Fletcher, Mommy and Daddy love you like crazy. You are the most amazing little man ever, and I am so thankful to have you as my son. We love you!

|11 week ultrasound. Amazing how great it is!|
This little babe is making him/herself know, and doesn't want to leave Fletcher as the only rambunctious baby in this family. The little bumpkin decided that he/she wanted to start making Mommy feel their presence.
The little flutters in my belly have started, and I couldn't be more happy! I have a feeling we are going to have another little stinker in our family. Just the way I like it!

My parents are moving to Indianapolis tomorrow. I have lived here six years, and this will be the first time I will have my parents in the same state since moving. I am extremely excited for them to be here, and for them to be able to watch Fletcher grow. They are amazing parents and grandparents, and we are lucky that they are going to be so close.
How close? Well, until they figure out just what part of the city they want to live in they will be right under our roof. So, that is now four adults, one baby, and two dogs.
Sounds like a full house....just the way I like it!

1. If you had to choose, how would you prefer to choose to spend money...on
landscaping or a pool?
Super easy question, pool! No, doubt in my mind. We want a pool or a place for a pool in our next house. I love to swim!
2. (Scott likes to get things stirred up...) Death penalty, yay or nay?
Nay. I am liberal like that.
3. What's the worst thing your kid has gotten into when you turned your back/blogged/showered/blinked?
Nothing really yet, although he almost knocked over the TV the other day!
4. How often do you REALLY go to the dentist?
Not often, but I do have dental insurance now so I MUST go soon!
5. What is your favorite animal (doesn't have to be a pet-type animal)?
I love wolves. They are kickass!
