The calm before the storm

Well Cruz and I decided that we should get some fresh air before this weekend brings in sleet, ice, and snow.  We went to Earlywine park to run, play, swing, and slide at least fibe, (five) with fingers, times!  So much fun with my little man today!  Hopefully we can continue to entertain each other for the next few days when we may be stuck inside!!!

Here he's asking me "Mommy why you take my picture?"

and still asking while he's sliding down

Testosterone City! (AKA My house starting April 2010)

So we finally finished the boys room (except our final tv purchase for the playroom).  We decided that it would be best for the boys to share a bedroom so that we could make our back room a playroom for all of the toys, balls, cars, trains, games, etc. etc.  They both turned out so cute and fun!  Cruz is in heaven in "his" playroom!  Yes, I don't think he's realized that someday soon, he will have to share it with baby bro Jett!

Reagan Lynn Blackburn

Yeah!  My new niece Reagan arrived today!  She was born at 1:17pm weighing in at 8lbs. 12oz.

She is perfect in every way and quite gorgeous, I must admit!!!  Big sister Hailey came to visit and wanted to hold her immediately!  She is going to be an amazing little helper to Mommy and Daddy!

Garrett and I are so excited to be an Aunt/Uncle to the new precious punkin!

Cruz's First OU Basketball Game

We took Cruz to the OU/Missouri basketball game today and he absolutely LOVED it!  He stood the entire game and yelled and clapped and held up his #1 finger every time the band played Boomer Sooner!  He has been taught well!  His favorite part was when Boomer or Sooner (we're not quite sure which is which) came by and gave him a high five and fist bump!

It must have been a total success because the game wore him out so much that now at 4:38pm, he is still taking a nap!!!

Baby Jett update

26 weeks down and only 14 to go!  (technically, 12.5 for me since we're scheduled for April 14th!)  Holy Cow!  I just said that out loud!  12.5 MORE WEEKS!!! Whoa!  I have so much to do!

Anyhow,  my doctors appointments are relatively boring at this point.  Its the usual weigh in, pee in a cup, blood pressure check, and listen to Baby Jett's heartbeat.  Here's what we got this week.

BP - Normal
Jett's heartbeat - 150
Mommy weight gain - 22lbs
Glucose Test - Normal

And yes, I finally took a picture of my belly...

Potty Training In Progress...

Well my goal has been to have Cruz potty trained by the time Baby Jett comes in April.  Since I have read that it is best to start with boys once they show interest etc. etc., we haven't pushed very hard with Cruz up to this point.  Well folks, I have the answer to all you're potty training questions!  Send them to Nana's for a week and voila'!  Cruz has officially been in big boy undies for a week with only a few accidents!!!  He has done fabulous with us here at the house and I think he's starting to get the hang of it at school too!  I think Nana could charge big bucks for this service!  I'm going ahead and reserving Jett's spot at "Nana's Potty Camp 2012!"

Mommy is sad!  My baby is growing up way too fast!!!

Happy pooping to you all!!!

Its a new dawn, Its a new day, Its a new life...

Spending New Years in Vegas for the 2nd year in a row with Garrett's family and we have had a blast!  Lots of shopping and spa time for this pregnant girl have left me feeling refreshed and re-energized for a new start to a new year!  Its so exciting!

We spent the last hours of the decade at a small club/bar in the Wynn hotel called Blush.  It had a retro swanky vibe and the DJ was playing all my favorite tunes all night!  We watched fireworks on the patio at midnight and I toasted the new year with a swig of champagne a la orange juice!  It got Jett fired up for hours!!!!
