Peanut Butter Jelly Time!

Finally got my pictures to upload again!  Not that I seem to have time to take pictures lately anyway.  I am up to 34 weeks and as I get bigger my ability to run after Hudson with a camera has diminished.  He is still quite clumsy when running but he loves to run so when we are outside I usually try to keep up with him to keep him from scabbing up his knees and elbows even more than they already are.  Yesterday afternoon he face planted into the sidewalk trying to run to me when I got home from work and now has a scabby nose.  You know it is bad when he asks for "medicine" when we are putting on his pajamas at night because he is so used to me putting neosporin on his cuts at night.

A few milestones have happened since the last time I posted:  1) Hudson had his first peanut butter and jelly sandwich!  If you know us, you know we both love peanut butter so I have been a little worried about what we would do if Hudson had a peanut allergy.  Although Hudson loves to eat he is still somewhat picky and tends to want the same things over and over.  I was hoping that a new lunch item could be added if he could eat a PB&J.  Well it was a hit and so far we haven't had any reaction to the peanut butter. 2) Hudson is using the potty at least once per day with success.  We usually try it around bath time when he already has his diaper off.   I am thinking that this may quickly fade once baby brother gets here and wears diapers but I guess it is a start.  3) Hudson (at 19 months old) is officially getting to sleep on his own. (praise the lord).  I still sit and read stories to him at night and then we say a little prayer and sing a song or two that he requests.  He now says, "Bed" when we are finished and I lay him in his crib and say "night night, I love you!" He says the same thing back and I walk out of the room.  He might give a little whine but quickly stops and lays down and goes to sleep.  He sleeps through the night and will even lay in the crib in the mornings and just chill until I come get him! I am thinking this may also regress when baby brother gets here but I really thought he would never do it so I am enjoying this time.  

Cohen, Melody, and Jeff came to visit us on Friday night on their way to the beach.  We had a great time even though it was a short visit. I like that we are half way between them and the beach because it gives us another reason to see each other.   Two times in a month is a record for sure!

Here is me at 31 weeks.  Will try to get a recent pic soon.  As of my 32 week appointment the midwife told me that baby boy was not head down yet.  She said they would wait a few more weeks and then possibly do an ultrasound if he still isn't turned when I go in on Friday.

 Hudson's first PB&J sandwich

 He is getting better about taking small bites but prefers to stuff a fist full of food into his mouth all at once.  Seems to take after Zach on that one.

 Again, it was near impossible to get the two boys to be still long enough to take a picture of them together.  I think Melody may have gotten a few more that I can share later.

 Zach was the "slide man" during our park visit.

 As Cohen would say, Zach is "too big" for the tunnel slide. :)
