Trying again!

I've been trying to post a new blog for a few days but for some reason pictures aren't working. And as much as I love these "word" things I also love posting pictures.

Here are a couple from my brother, Steve's visit. (He is over 18, Holly! Tell your sister!)

J and Steve found each other equally amusing. Steve laughed at J because he's never really been around toddlers before...and J laughed at Steve because Steve was laughing at him. It was cute. J called Steve "Wa-Wa" which I think was supposed to be "Uncle."

Trying to take a pic of J and I together. It doesn't always work out with a squirmy toddler!

Eh, that will do, I guess.

The other day we went to the zoo - this is in the kids area (yes, by that awful petting zoo!)

For lunch we went to Frank and Lola's in Scottsdale - I highly recommend it, especially if you have an entertainment book (there's a coupon for buy one get one free! Whoo-hoo!) J loved the chips and salsa...while I found the salsa a little on the spicy side. :-(

Then J got his 2nd hair cut. He did really well during it, no squirming or crying. But he does look quite a bit older and slightly mischevious.

A little update on J and Sweet Pea:

If you can tell in the last picture, he's using a spoon and is doing quite good with it. He also uses a fork really well and we're working on a 'big boy' cup with's a definite learning process. He is also trying to talk more but a lot of his words all sound like each other so it's still a guessing game with him. He's figured out that saying "EESE!" (please) after everything almost always guarantees what he wants. He's such an independent, fun little boy and I'm very interested to see how he reacts to his little sister. Speaking of her...I'm now due NEXT MONTH. Eeeeek! We haven't started the nursery yet - my dad will be coming to town in a few weeks so we're waiting til after he leaves. (We have to get rid of our queen sized guest bed, let me know if you want it!) But we have a bassinet and diapers and a few outfits - what else do you really need for a newborn? I'm starting to get excited, obviously it's a tad early but I am really looking forward to meeting her, seeing her face and holding her in my arms!

Wow...has it been 8 months already? I can't wait to meet her! I will pass on the info about your brother. Looks like a great catch. I love Toddler J's new skills with the spoon.
