Gettin' Air

There is a crazy amount of jumping and climbing going on in this house....and the minute you get the camera out, A is ready to show off his many "talents."  This kid is a born entertainer, and loves to be the center of attention.

The Hoff

Oh. My. Goodness. 
Jared and Ryan "played" Baywatch two days in a row.  
They are both in their 30s.  WHAT??  Most of this was done while I was napping as I would have ridiculed them to no end.  From what I understand, there was a lot of slow motion running on the beach and singing the theme song.  I'll spare you the video footage.  They tried to convince Kaitlyn to go in the water so she could be "rescued" but she told them to get a doll.  Maybe next time.

 I went kayaking for the first time since my injury and it went pretty well.  Just a short trip but I'm looking forward to going again for a longer period of time.  Anthony also went out in the kayak for the first time, and he went tubing too - this kid really loves the water!

Anthony is still completely obsessed with his blanket ("bebe") that Uncle Josh gave him, and wants to get tucked in and cozy any chance he gets.  Thankfully Josh was smart enough to give us two of the same one!

Big News!

We are excited to share with you that we are expecting Anardi Baby #2!  I am due March 7th and will have the baby about a week early via planned c-section.  We always wanted to have several kids, and for awhile we let the wheelchair get in the way of that.  After talking to all of my different doctors who all gave us the go ahead with no concerns at all, we decided it was time!  We expect this to be a totally normal pregnancy, other than the fact that I can't walk.  I am in perfect health and don't even have to go to a specialist.  I'll be using the same OB who delivered Anthony and am really looking forward to having her as my doctor again.  She was incredible the first time around, especially given the crazy, unexpected circumstances.

In the picture the head is on the left, attached to the yolk sac (small ball looking thing) and you can see the arm and leg buds sticking off the body.  God has truly blessed us with an amazing life and now two great children!

We had a great time with the three boy cousins on Saturday!  Here Caleb is contemplating whether or not he should run over the neighbor's dog, JJ.  As you can see, JJ has some issues which cause him to eat all of the hair off of his body.  I'll leave it at that.
