Wow. Little Dude is officially talking! I am amazed. Actually, I am more amazed at how differently I look at him now that he is clearly communicating. He has been doing sign language with me for awhile, but speaking is a whole new game and adds a whole new level of amazement on my part. This may sound strange, but now I look at him as a little person, not a baby doing sign language for more cheerios, but a little person saying, "yes", "NO", "Dada", "Mama", "Woofwoof"(eddie, our dog), "ug" (hug?) "ink" (drink), ......dang. By next month who knows how much he might be able to say! Which is a mental note for me to be careful about what I say now....! I have always been bad at spelling; however, I need to get better quickly so Bill and I can still talking about getting i-c-e-c-r-e-a-m without Little Dude knowing.

In other news, I am in my first day of my fourth month of pregnancy with the new little guy/girl. We go on the 31st for another checkup, then 2 weeks later we get to go back and find out if it is a girl or a boy!! I CAN"T WAIT. I really don't know how people wait til birth to know, I have like 3 1/2 weeks to wait and I just can't! We already set up the baby's room with the nursery stuff as I used a brightly colored gender neutral jungle theme the first time around. Little Dude seems to be in love with his toddler bed, though I have left the crib rails on and plan to leave them on til 1, he climbs out or 2, after this next Christmas. I figure after Christmas 2008 we can put the toddler bed rails on and if he gets up during the night, no biggie. Anyways, we are really all ready to go, I am going to buy more room decorations for the new baby's room once I know if it is a boy or a girl. And as soon as I know, trust me you guys will too!

Well, Little Dude is telling me he is ready for a snack, so I am off to the kitchen. And I'm pregnant. And I'm barefoot. Hmmm. Hahahaha!!!!
