Update. A pictureless update.

So I can only get the photo uploaded to work about 5 percent of the time which is seriously annoying. I think that my computer has a virus- you'd think that since my husband is a professional computer programmer, he would fix but geez, that guy is just so busy.

So here is just a plain ole boring pictureless update

Has a huge deadline at work so has been working crazy hours. Let's see, its Friday afternoon and he has already put in about 50 hours and he will probably still put in about 14 more hours. Awesome. One of the other programmers is working on getting him some time off next week because he has worked so much. I can dream but in reality, it probably won't happen.

Just as sick as ever. Lately, I have been crazy sick which is unfortunate, especially since Jake is working so much. I am having loads of cramps and pains but it's okay because I am almost half done my pregnancy! And then, hopefully, we will take a bit of a break. But thus far, it hasn't really worked out that way. We have been packing a lot, and we are probably about half done- mostly just our clothes and food is left. Go us. We are moving in 8 days which is insane, especially since we don't know when we will get possession of our house. We are waiting on this loan and they don't allow updates which is annoying. But we are being patient and just hoping that everything will work out.

Well, he's two. That says a lot. He is crazy and needy and loud. But still adorable. He is constantly giving hugs and kisses to me and Adam which is adorable. Yesterday, I was sick and laying on the couch and Mikey came up and patted my head and kissed my cheek. It was so cute, not terribly gentle, but still so sweet. He is slowly putting some words together- the other day he said Mama, where Dada. I was very proud. He has pretty much just said Mama since then but still, he is gonna figure it out. He has a comprehensive hearing and speech test on Tuesday so we will know how damaged his hearing is and how severe his speech delay is. Wish us luck.

Crawling all over and quite the little bully. The other day, Mikey had a toy and Adam took it, and then held Mikey at arm's length while Mikey screamed but he couldn't reach it. So funny but kinda sad. He is a squawker which is pretty cute. He gets incredibly excited for when Jake gets home from work and can pull himself up to standing and will take steps when we hold his hands. We are proud.

Well there ya go. Hopefully one of these days I will be able to get the photo uploader to work. I probably won't post again for a while. But the next post will probably be sharing the baby's gender! Care to take guesses? Jake says it's a boy and I have truly no idea.

Mikey turned 2!

On Saturday, our big guy turned 2. I can't believe it. How can he be two already? Also, to add to the craziness, my oldest is 2 and I am 16 weeks along with my third. Yeah. Nuts.

When I asked what he wanted for his birthday, every time he told me "Dada". Lucky for him, Jake didn't have to work on Saturday so he got the whole day with him!

It was a fun day. We just had a simple party- Provo Splash Pad and then a barbecue in the backyard. Originally we were only going to invite family but then the more we thought about it, the more we realized that we wanted to share the day with our close friends outside of the family too. (and on Monday we went and saw Planes for his birthday. We were going to go on Saturday before the party but I got lost on the way home from picking up the cake. So, yeah, we missed it)

He made out like a bandit with presents. Let's see if I can list them all- a toy piano, two books, a Toy Story cell phone (that he carries around in his shirt- thanks to his Aunty Hannah haha), a Jake and the Neverland Pirates matching game, a playdo book, bath toys, Nerf balls, bubble gun, a bike, a fabric alphabet book, toy dinosaurs, and I cannot think of anything else- which means one of two things: I named them all, or my pregnancy brain. That's all. 

Unfortunately, I forgot my camera when we went to the splash pad but I still got a few pictures from the day.

The night before his birthday, I blew up a ton of balloons and let him outside his door. Sadly, the helium didn't last quite long enough but he still loved it.

Our younger big guy, Adam getting stuck in the balloons. Poor buddy is a mover but not great at steering.

Ah, this cake. My great friend Mandy from Baking with Blondie made the cake for us and it was so cute. But then I drove it home in my crappy car that shakes all the time and it settled so the beautiful cake didn't look as great. But it still tasted great- and I don't even like cake. Chocolate with coconut filling.

I tried to move the cake back to the center of the plate with a spatula which Mikey found and sucked on it for about 10 minutes. 

Toy piano from his dad!

He loved the bubble gun and pretty much didn't want to open anything else so he could play it.

Mikey's grandma was in town and bought him a bike for his birthday! He loved it, until he fell off, now he is much more hesitant. But we are working on it.
It was a great day and it is so much fun to celebrate it with our great family and friends. Too bad the rest of them couldn't have been there too!
