Big announcement!

I have made this announcement on Facebook, so I feel like I should make it on our blog too since it concerns our family. Myers is going to be a big brother! We are expecting baby #2 on or around January 20, 2011. We had an ultrasound around week 7 and were able to hear the heartbeat on the doppler last Friday at 10 weeks. We are very excited to be adding another little one to our family.

Trip to the Monastery

On Monday we spent the day with Honey. We took a picnic to the Monastery and visited the geese. Myers loved seeing the geese even though they ran away from him! We also looked at the Bonsai trees that the monks grow and the Monastery store.

First harvest from the garden

We had the first harvest in our garden. Corn and green beans! Myers loved the corn. He cried when it was all gone. We haven't cooked the green beans yet, but will probably do so this weekend. Yummy!!

New Adventures in Cloth Diapering

I have been thinking about trying cloth diapers for awhile, but was afraid to make the leap. You are probably thinking about the old fashioned cloth diapers with diaper pins. Guess what, you don't even need pins anymore because of this ingenious little invention called the Snappi. Plus, some cloth diapers (like All-in-Ones and Pockets) go on just like a disposable.

Well, today I ordered a few to try out. I ordered 6 prefolds (the old fashioned ones), 1 Thirsty Duo Wrap, 1 Bummis Super Brite (these are to cover the prefolds), 1 Snappi, and 2 NuBunz One Size Pocket Diaper (which go on just like disposables). That will give me enough diapers to give this thing a try and see how it goes. Wish me luck!

Imagine It! Children's Museum

As a going away present, some of my co-teachers at Young Life gave us a membership to the Imagine It! Children's Museum in Atlanta. Last weekend, we used our membership for the first time. Myers loved it and so did we! There was an area just for kids 5 and under with water to play in, and an area for kids 2 and under with lots of soft stuff to climb on and over. There was also a place to paint which Myers loved. I am sure we will make a lot of use of this membership over the coming year!

It's food time!

I would much rather eat with my hands...
even though I have pretty much mastered the use of spoons and forks.
Myers has some new favorite foods: blueberries and hummus. We went through a pound of blueberries last week alone! He also loves dipping carrots in hummus and then sucking it off.
He tried a green olives today and was not a fan. I wish I had gotten a picture of the awful face he made!
