The Adventure Continues

Here I am, back at the single parenting again. Walker left for Utah on Monday and I am still in Boise with a toddler, and now a newborn. My mom has truly been an angel in helping me out. Who knew that getting up in the middle of the night could be so fun? She deserves the title "The Baby Whisperer." Who knew that she could calm the baby in two seconds flat?

Jamison is now 21 months, and for the most part, loves life. Fortunately we have
n't had a repeat of the bundt pan episode (I hid it, much to his dismay), but he did manage to get his fingers stuck in a door yesterday. His book of the week is "The Cat in the Hat" and he loves hiding in closets.

Vivienne is becoming quite the charmer. She seems very aware of what is going on around her and needs to be where all the action is. At her doctor's appointment yesterday, we discovered she had gained 12 ounces i
n one week. That's my girl!

He gives me this look a lot.

Farmer Jamison

While cleaning out our garden this week, Walker was surprised to find these carrots. We didn't have much luck with our garden this year (it was ignored after Walker left for Utah) and these carrots were a nice surprise.

Our little cowboy.

Jamison somehow got this bundt pan stuck on his head. He couldn't get it off and started panicking. Walker had to force it off, leaving a bruise on Jamison's forehead. Five minutes later he wanted to do it again.

Family Portrait

Shortly before this picture was taken, Jamison gave Vivienne a friendly smack in the face. We are in a for good time.

Ready or not, here we come

Tomorrow morning we are checking into the hospital at 6:00am to be induced. I am nervous, but excited to finally have this baby. My doctor is optimistic that it will be quick (at least quicker than last time) and he thinks the baby is about 7 1/2 lbs. He was one ounce off with his guess of Jamison's weight, so we'll see how close he is on this one.

We've had a fun weekend having Walker home. Jamison sure misses his Daddy when he's gone. They've had lots of fun playing in the dirt in the backyard (although Jamison got a talking-to for hitting Daddy in the head with a little shovel) and wrestling in the living room.

I'm So Glad When Daddy Comes Home

Wednesdays are no fun anymore, Daddy. Mommy doesn't sit outside with me to watch the garbage men. Hurry home so we can do boy stuff again!
