New Family Photos

Once again we had our great friend Em with M Photography shoot our family pictures back in early November. She has done our engagement, wedding, maternity and family shots since 2006. Once again she exceeded our expectations in capturing our family.

O' Christmas Tree, O' Christmas Tree

This year we had Kellan help us pick out the Christmas tree. We're not like a lot of families who go into the woods to find that perfect tree. Instead we cheat and go to a lot where they are pre-cut. I'm looking foward to having Kellan help us decorate the tree too.

Our Thanksgiving

Keegan got to meet a lot of new people on Thanksgiving day, which meant not a lot of sleep. When he did finally fall asleep...he crashed for about 3.5 hours. With having 2 children now, holidays are a bit more chaotic. I had to fix Kellan's plate and help him eat, then fix my plate, all while Tim fed Keegan and then had his turn to eat. It's sad to say that I don't think Tim and I will be eating at the same time during holidays for awhile. All and all the food was great and now it's time to get back to watching what I eat.

Fighting a cough

Ever since Kellan got RSV when he was just 6 months old, he has always had a really raspy voice hard cough. Our pediatrician recommended we put him back on the nebulizer. We thought we would try the fun fish mask to feed the medication into his system....boy were we wrong.

He was not feeling that at all. After bribing him with fruit snacks and Mickey Mouse he finally settled down. Hopefully he will continue to get better.

I can't forget about Keegan. He is almost 6 weeks already, which means I only have a little over 6 weeks of maternity left...tear.

Happy Halloween

I can't believe it's Halloween already. That just means we are that much closer to Christmas...YIKES!
This year was so much fun trick or treating with Kellan. He did a great job ringing the door bells, saying trick or treat and thank you as well. He just loved digging in the bowls to grab his own candy.

Kellan was a spider this year. Here he is with just the hat on. It took lots of convincing to get the costume on for the first time. Thank goodness we did a few trial runs that morning.

Last birthday in my 20's

I think I may cry...next year I'll be 30 (gasp)!! Well I had my 29th birthday this past Saturday and we celebrated in the Dells. We started the morning out at a pumpkin patch. Kellan got to pet some kitties.

He posed for some pictures.

He saw lots of farm animals.

He painted pumpkins
 End Result. His is on the left :)

We had a nice lunch after the pumpkin patch, hit up the outlet mall and walked around downtown. Overall, it was a great birthday and a great way to spend one of the last weekends as a family of 3.

Tim's 30th Birthday

So a little over a week ago I threw Tim a surprise 30th birthday party and he was actually surprised. A friend of mine and I decided to do the party as a joint party with my husband and his wife. His wife will be 31 next month, but couldn't really celebrate her 30th birthday because it was right around when her daughter was born. They each thought the party was for each other so when they arrived and saw their co workers, friends and family they were totally shocked that the party for actually for them. It was so cool to know that I actually pulled off a great surprise.

I didn't get many photos, but here is what I did manage to get. Here I am with 2 of my favorite co-workers Traci and Michelle.

Induction Date

That's right, I'm getting induced. My last day of work is Oct 11 and on Oct 13th I make my way back to the hospital for number 2. My actual due date is Oct 20th, but due to the gestational diabetes I have developed and the fact that I also got preeclampsia last time, my doctor thought it would be a good idea to go a bit early. So the countdown is on and I'm so ready and excited and anxious. I'm going to be a mom of 2!!!

Kellan's 2nd birthday / Party

So my sweet baby boy actually turned 2 on August 31st. Where did the last 2 years of our lives go and how can I be the mother to a toddler already? I'm so proud to have such a wonderful son in my life and really enjoyed sharing his birthday with him. On his actual birthday, we took some time and went to the park. Unfortunately I only got 1 picture at the park and here it is.

 Later that night we went out to dinner with Tim's family to celebrate not only Kellan's birthday, but Tim's grandma's birthday too.

Kellan got some birthday presents, mostly Mickey Mouse, which he loves. Here he is sporting his new Mickey backpack.

Here is Kellan getting waiting for his birthday cake.

Then we had his birthday party. The theme, Mickey Mouse.

We had a local Cup Cake shop make these amazing treats. We had pumpkin spice, red velvet and mint chocolate, filled with fudge, yeah really low fat too.....

Birthday boy all ready for the party.
