Parker is THRILLED to say....

He really is excited to have a little brother, but not so excited to hold the sign. It is practically impossible to get an almost 2 year old to hold a sign facing forward and smile at the same time.
We found out a couple weeks ago that we are going to have another boy and are so thrilled for Parker to have a little brother to play with. Plus, Brad is relieved because he wasn't quite sure how he was going to handle changing girl diapers since you can only wipe one direction. We have decided we are going to name him Garrett but not sure on a middle name. Any good ideas?

Born to be Wild

Well, the time has come to do something about the high gas prices. Fortunately for Brad that involves him "giving up" the Toyota 4runner to purchase a motorcycle to drive to and from work. Brad was absolutely GLOWING all day yesterday while riding/thinking about his new bike. I have never been a motorcycle fan but I have to IS a gorgeous bike and it is loads of fun to ride.
As you can see in the background of the photos, we still have our 4 runner. We are currently trying to sell it, so if you know anyone that would like a 2000 Toyota 4runner. Let us know.

I felt special today!

Here is just a small sample of what I experience for dinner tonight. This is the first time Brad fixed me a meal that wasn't from a box or cooked all day in the crock pot. First of all, for dinner he barbecued the most amazing steaks I have ever had in my life. (Not a joke, melt in your mouth goodness) On the side he prepared watermelon, baked potatoes and a side salad. I don't even think we got to the salad because he were so stuffed from everything else. Then for desert he made creme brule, a scoop a strawberry sorbet, a filleted strawberry and a sprig of parsley as a garnish. He even thought of a garnish! Needless to say, I had an amazing dinner which included no whining from Parker while we sat at the table. He chowed down on potatoes and watermelon and didn't make a peep.
Many of you have requested more belly pictures. Here you go. I am almost 16 weeks and my belly is much larger than anyone that I know that is at this stage of pregnancy. Yeah for me. (sense the sarcasm) But, isn't this picture adorable! Priceless of Parker smiling up at me.
