little clip from this morning

He loves to point in the books and make animal noises. Here I try to get him to make some noises but once we have him make the elephant noise he likes to do that one over and over.

Jase now knows the signs for dada and mama. Finally! With signing children will attempt to do a sign and it may not look exactly the way it should but they think it does. It's really cute to see him learn how to manipulate his hands and fingers to do signs. He has discovered that he can cross his two first fingers on his left hand and just stares at his hand while he does it over and over. He loves to bring his books to me and point at the photos in them like when I do it and ask him what an object is, he even does this in the dark in his crib at night with his cloth books. The time change has messed things up a bit with naps and sleeping. He is sleeping later in the morning so I am keeping him up and trying to see if he is ready for just one nap a day. Children typically lose the second nap between 14-18 months. He seems to be doing okay and falls asleep really good at night but then has been waking up an hour or two later and it has been taking him two hours to fall back asleep. He doesn't cry at all but just tosses and turns and plays in his crib. I can't figure out what is going on. I may need to still do two naps but move his bedtime later. ??? He absolutely loves being outside but doesn't really care to play on the playground equipment when we have been. He rather pick up rocks, sticks or dirt and run away. He now doesn't like to ride in the swing now and he holds his breath and looks extremely panicked when we do it. Something new is Jase likes to blow kisses and does it to strangers too.

As for me, I am feeling good. Just having to eat several times a day, starting to get my headaches. Eleven weeks and counting. Even though it's the second time, it's still exciting and I keep waiting to feel a flutter and sometimes I think I do but it probably is gas bubble or muscle spasm.

I just love to watch him squat and play.
Two handsome fellows
He now loves his Georgia Bulldog doll
Eating sandwiches at the park.
Having sips of daddy's tea.
Jason thought maybe he would not be so scared if he held onto his hand.
He didn't like riding the turtle either
Right before going down the slide together.

I kept hearing static crackling in my ear then Jason laughed when he realized all my hair was sticking straight up. I love this photo.

Big News!!!

This weekend my sister came down from Boston to visit so on our way to Atlanta we picked her up from the airport. We showed up at my parents house with her without them knowing that she was coming. It was so much fun surprising them. We had a great time hanging out. Jase has been really trying hard to say some words but does much better signing and doing animal sounds and imitations. He actually said apple and cool. Apple sounds more like AP-PA but it counts darn it!! So I made a shirt for Jase check it out.

Jase wore this for my parents this weekend to let them know of the Big News!!
Jase isn't too sure of the University of Georgia bulldog toy that daddy got him. It makes him very nervous.
Still likes to chew on everything.
GIVE ME A FREAKING BREAK PEOPLE!This shows the heart rate of the baby....super fast!
The machine that my doctor office has now is really high-tech and we could see the baby's arms, legs and fingers. It was moving around like crazy. Normally all you can see at this time is a shrimp shaped blob not doing anything so this was amazing to see it moving so early. Jase was with us and he kept signing "dog". HA! As of right now, the due date is September 29th. We could not be any happier. It came a little sooner than planned but we are just as thrilled.
