mini update

I'm feeling less than inspired to blog the last few days. Things are going well, life is bobbing along as always (mental image of a fishing bobber on a lake, my life seems to float along like this).

Brecken is fantastic, he's growing like a weed. We got him up for school on Friday and Joey and I were both like hmm, he obviously grew overnight. We inexactly measured him against the counter, and he is as tall as the counters now - 36"! But again, business as usual for him. I have a cute video to post later this week, he knows his baby brother's name, and it's hilarious to hear him say it. :)

Daycare is closed tomorrow - PLEASE give me ideas of things Brecken and I can do tomorrow. Toddler activities do not come easily to me. I could teach him Excel or how to play the Wii, but methinks he's too young for both. So really, pass ideas along, please and thank you!

So my whole point of this post was a tiny update on the tiny babe. We hit 22 weeks last Saturday. This pregnancy is going so very fast. Baby J is kicking like crazy! Here's the baby update from "At 11 inches (the length of a spaghetti squash) and almost 1 pound, your baby is starting to look like a miniature newborn. His lips, eyelids, and eyebrows are becoming more distinct, and he's even developing tiny tooth buds beneath his gums. His eyes have formed, but his irises (the colored part of the eye) still lack pigment. If you could see inside your womb, you'd be able to spot the fine hair (lanugo) that covers his body and the deep wrinkles on his skin, which he'll sport until he adds a padding of fat to fill them in. Inside his belly, his pancreas — essential for the production of some important hormones — is developing steadily."

So that's all about us - what are YOU up to this cold winter night?
