A couple weeks ago, Maximus and I went to see Grandma LaLa, Veronica & her baby, (M's 2nd cousin). Veronica captured some really sweet photos of the two cousins - here's a few.

I love the look on both of their faces. So precious.

By the way, Maximus got a haircut! I'll share some photos in my next post. It's still longish, but doesn't look quite as unruly. ha!

Happy day!

23 Months

First off, I wanted to thank all of you for the congrats and sweet comments on my last post. I hope to keep a good record of this next little one, as much as I have with M. Let's hope I have the time and energy. haha...
Maximus turned 23 months on the 7th of this month. Needless to say, I'm a little late in getting this posted. I can't believe that in less than two weeks he'll be 2 years old!
His language is exploding - he's learning so many new words. Some of the things he says really surprise us. It's a really fun age. Here's some of the stuff he's been saying:
people, heart, all done, all gone
coohk = cook (one day he pulled open a kitchen drawer, pulled out the oven mit, put it on and said, coohk).
whap = wrap (he learned this word around Christmas time).
peek = pick (he'll say, "peek up" if he wants you to pick him up).
coke = coat
weed or weed-ah = weird (apparently I say this word a lot).
cap = cap (he loves containers and things with lids/caps and wants to hold them).
buba = bubble
add-ah = ads (he goes nuts when the circular ads come in the mail. He'll yell, "add-ah" and head on over to the couch so we can look at them and pass them back and forth).
ween = wind
taow = towel
duty = dirty
tube-ah = youtube (he loves watching things on youtube and will say, "tube-ah").
ee-moe = oatmeal
hoat = hold (he's always asking to hold things and also says this when he wants to be held).
rock you or rocky you = he wants you to rock him. (He says this a lot before bed. Sometimes we hear him saying/crying it when he wakes up. If he hears a baby somewhere crying. He'll say, "nigh nigh...rock you").
taw = straw
ope = open
een or een-ah = in
dean or dean-ah = jeans
dammie = jammies
bread or bread-ah = bread
tiny = he started saying this one day when he was eating blueberries.
bean or bean-ah = bean (this is a word that Rob was trying to get him to say for over a year now...haha)
low-goak = yogurt (this is probably his favorite food these days).
tee tee = TV
moo-gick = music (still loves it)!
new one = he's been getting in his dresser drawer to get "one" of his blankies and now he calls them "new one" most of the time.
logo = he'll recognize logos on objects and will say logo.
tappy = strawberry
pete = peach
come you or comey you = he wants you to come with him. I adore this phrase.
key boar = keyboard
bud-ah = butter (reminds me of someone from Boston).
be-you = teddy bear. Sometimes he'll say teddy.
cal-ca-lu = calculator (sometimes referred to as cal-key-lu).
cop-oh = couple
hokey = okay
pee-tee = pretty
hap you = help you (if he wants your help or wants to help you, he says this).
dat = dance (he begs to dance. It's really cute, he's even pretty good at signing dance).
poon = spoon
mut = mush
keem = cream
go be = good boy
tun-ah = tunnel
This guy keeps us busy and makes us laugh. He's such a blessing.
Happy day!

He's right!
I am pregnant!
Not sure it has completely set in yet, except for the fact that I have been exhausted and nauseous for the past several weeks. This is a major reason that I haven't been doing much blogging lately.
I'm a little over 9 weeks
Due date is Aug. 19th, my mom's birthday!!!
Had first ultrasound yesterday and all looks good
Thank goodness for naps - I usually take one when M does.
We get to find out the sex of the baby in the next 2 1/2 months.
Rob and I both think it's going to be a boy.
I hope to be getting some energy back soon. The first trimester can be quite exhausting. We feel so blessed and fortunate to be having another child. God is good!
As a side note, I found a work around for the problem that I was having uploading photos to blogger:
I googled the problem and this link popped up: Photo Upload Problem - Known Issue
For now, I'm able to upload photos in the HTML tab. It's a known issue that Blogger is having and they are working on. I wanted to share this in case any of you were having similar issues.
Happy day!

I wanted to wish my Dad a very Happy Birthday today!

For some reason, blogger is not letting me upload pictures...grrr...I'm so not used to doing posts without photos.

Anyway...have a good day Dad. I couldn't ask for a better father!

Love you very much!
Heidi, Rob & Maximus

p.s. Hoping to post something soon once I can upload again.
