We had the ultrasound for baby #2 on February 1st. Everything looks good and last week marked the halfway point of the pregnancy. The baby is measuring pretty close to the due date, so the doctor didn’t change it. We didn’t find out the gender. The plan is to keep the current gender neutral nursery for the new baby with the bugs, and Andrew will move into the room next door that is currently the office. We have a sports theme picked out for that, so we hope that will help to ease the transition a bit. He will be out of the crib and into a bed, so we hope to make the transition happen before the new brother/sister comes along.
Andrew is doing great. His favorite thing to do is go to NDSU basketball games. He is so good during the games. He doesn’t even really go to into his bag of toys for the game because he is so into the game. He loves to listen and dance to the band and cheer for all made baskets, even the other team. When he isn’t at the games, he likes to shoot baskets in his little hoop in his play room. He likes to draw pictures, read books and play with his train as well.
His favorite thing to drink is chocolate milk. He thinks of it often and asks for it. We were even looking a book the other day with a picture of a brown dump truck. That was chocolate. He likes oranges, too. He likes to eat them for bedtime snack with Daddy in particular. He is learning his colors. Blue, red, yellow, orange are all in the mix. Green isn’t green. It’s Bison. The teachers at school must really wonder. He gets notes from the teacher at school every day and last week one of the notes said, Andrew noticed the yellow and green jello for lunch and said “Bison.” I think we have brainwashed him well. :) We are working on putting two and three word phrases together. “Bison Basketball, shoot the ball, and chocolate milk” are a few. He is also finding things that are the same. For example, we had a pink balloon and grandma was wearing a pink vest. He noticed they were the “same.”
The company that hosts this website is going to be going out of business this summer. I’m so bummed, because I haven’t found an alternative that I like even though I have tried out a few different companies. Maybe I’ll figure out how to build one from scratch with all my free time I’ll be sure to have once baby #2 arrives. Ha!
