Little Helper

Friday, May 27, 2011

Peep's been a big help gardening so far this spring. She loves to wear her bug boots from Nana. :D

We're just hanging out over here, waiting for baby two to make his entrance. I think he dropped last night, could be any day, could be two weeks...  The waiting game!

Big girl bed

Wednesday, May 18, 2011

Here's a pic of the Peep in her big girl bed. It's filled up with babies, books, etc. at all times. Sometimes she hauls them all out to the living room in between sleeping. It's a big job, but a girl's gotta do what she's gotta do!

22 more days 'til my due date!

Tuesday, May 17, 2011

I'll be 37 weeks tomorrow which is considered full term. So hard to believe! Hubs's boss told him one of his kids came 4 weeks early and Hubs said he started to hyperventilate a little. ha! It's going to be a switch  to have two kids instead of one, but I think we'll do just fine. I'm excited to meet our little man and see what Peep thinks of her brother.

Any other preggo moms out there? When are you due? What are you fears/excitements?

Peep speak, boy has it changed!

Peep is growing up so fast and talking more every day. Some of the things she's been saying lately:

-In response to, "Do you want chicken for lunch?" "I want a hoc (hot) dog... and chips."
-"I oh (lo) you Mama (Daddy, etc.)."  Love you
-Hubs kissed me goodbye one morning and Peep said, "I want a kiss!"
-On the phone with her daddy, "Hello Daddy! Book Daddy? (She says pointing at the book in her lap) Daddy doing? Workt Daddy workt? See you Daddy!"
-Talking to Nana and Papa, she turns the phone to her feet cuz she's taken off her shoes and socks, " See! My toes! My toes! See Papa/Nana?"
-Simmin/simmie pool - swimming pool
-Clippered the big dog - Clifford the big red dog
-Ning room - Living room
-Heard alot, "Come on Mommy/Daddy!" She's always wanting us to go with her to the "ning" room and play after meals. But she says it all the time, she needs someone (a brother?) to follow her around. :D
-"I cutesy!" When leaving the bank after all the ladies/tellers said she was cute. And modest too!
-"I pity gir!" After putting on a new outfit from Nana.
-"Abc, abc, abc, abc." She even fills in sometimes, she said, "l m n o p" and then "y" at the right time.
-She's working on Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, first Tickle tickle star star star and now "Tinkle tinkle star star star."

Cute upholstered toddler bed...

Tuesday, May 10, 2011

I started to do a search for DIY toddler bed quilt, but before I could type quilt this super cute toddler bed picture popped up:

You can find the instructions on how to make it here!

We've already bought Peep a Step 2 Snooze 'N' Cruise Toddler bed:

And all I really want to do is make a little pillow and comforter for her, to make it more adult-bed-like for her. I'm not really finding anything, so I'll just have to come up with something on my own! I'll let you know what I figure out...

Interesting boy names

Monday, May 2, 2011

When I was pregnant with Peep and looking for girl names I came across some strange names (in my opinion, sorry if this is your name)...  Now that I'm looking for names again, here are the odd boy names I've seen:

Annabelle (what?)
Annmarie (seriously, do you want your kid to get in fights at school?)
Gandolf (I liked LOTR, but come on!)
