Anderson will be a lion for halloween this year. Luckily he doesn't mind his costume. We tried to get costume pics at a studio, but that didn't work out so well (it was nap time), so Lee and I took him to a church pumpkin sale and tried to get some pics. Unfortunately, pumpkins happen to look a lot like balls and Anderson was going crazy. He wanted to pick them all up and throw them and just couldn't get over how many balls there were just laying around. It was pretty funny. Here are the best shots we could get. We will try again tomorrow when its the real thing.

Hanging from my basketball goal, ready to go see some pumpkins

Sensory overload. Which one do I grab first?

This is serious business.

He also had his 18 month well child check up 2 weeks ago. He weighed 26lbs 13oz and was 34 inches tall. Needless to say we have a tall little boy on our hands!

In baby news, we have narrowed it down to 2 names. One I like better, one Lee likes better, but we both like eachother's names too so we will just see who gets to pick once she is born. Anderson can say both of the names (even though he says my favorite better which I think means we should pick it!) She feels a lot bigger than Anderson ever did and moves a lot more too. I will be surprised if we make it to our due date, but it would be neat to have her on my dad's bday, so if we do, thats great! I start my every week appointments on Nov 19th. We will know more then and I will be sure to update the blog with any info.

A great weekend!

First of all... I have to gloat a bit about the Texas Tech butt kicking in Lawrence. GO TECH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It was almost embarrassing to be there and watch KU get there butts handed to them, but I am glad it was a victory for Tech! Tech is undefeated against KU ever since Lee and I met. :) Ok all you KU fans, I'm done bragging!

My mom came in town and helped me get some baby stuff figured out. It was such a relief to feel like I have made some progress towards preparing for #2. We got the baby's crib bedding all figured out, ordered her mattress and picked out some adorable fabric that my mom will use to make her bassinet bedding. The bassinet is a family heirloom on Lee's mom's side of the family and it is so cool. I think this is the 4th or 5th generation to use it. Maybe more than that even. My mom made some really cute bedding for it for Anderson that we thought would be gender nuetral, but now that I am having a girl, we decided that we should make something a little more frilly! I will post pics when it is done. I can't wait to see it all put together. Thanks mom for all the help!!!!!!!!! I love you lots and don't know what I would do without you. :)

Lee went to a costume party on Saturday night. I guess he was Poncho Villa??? Anderson wasn't sure who he was at first but as soon as Lee talked, he smiled and wanted to grab the stache. GROSS!

Talking to Hollie

This morning Anderson and my dear friend Hollie got to talk on the phone. It was so cute that I had to get the video camera out. After the camera was off, we even got him to say her name!

here is another stab at the video. :)

My mom bought Anderson this adorable Superman PJ set, complete with a cape. We taught him to raise his hands in the air and say "SUPERMAN!" So cute. He has no clue who Superman is or what he is saying but Lee will be sure to teach him all about it some day. Here are some pics of our little Superman who is getting SO SO big.
