Look What Mima and Emily gave Hank!!!

This is our neighbor, Marilyn her grand-daughter and their dog, Jaida!
A couple of weeks ago, they gave Hank this fancy Car! We love getting their kids and grand-kids hand-me-down toys!
Here he is posing with his new car!
Another day of car play, oops he got stuck.

Cheese! I love my car! Can you tell he has slipped down a little bit?

Auntie Afton!

So the sign says it all! Afton had a birthday, yesterday! Hank helped me make the sign. We had a dinner paty with her on Sunday the 12th and then a lunch on the 14th. It was great fun!
Auntie and Hank playing Grandma Sharons auto-harp!

Here I am at 30 weeks, this was a few days ago, so I am closer to 31 weeks now!
OK, so we are going to try for a natural birth, and then if she doesn't come, at 41 weeks we will take her out by C-section! That's the plan!

Checking on Hank-

Sunday night, I went to check on Hank just before I was going to bed myself, and he was not in his bed, or on the floor!!! Uh-oh, where is he?

I found him safe and sound, in the closet. I put him back in his bed, without him waking up, which was amazing because I totally bumped his head with the closet door as I was trying to open it.

Family Home Evening on a Sat. night!

For FHE tonight, Mark gave a 3 or so minute lesson about Jesus and a few of the pictures in the Gospel Art kit. We ended when it seemed Hank lost interest. Then we had a wind up Robot Race! Hank posing quite well, if I do say so myself!

Mom's Robot won the first Race, the below picture shows Daddy's Robot winning the 2nd race! Oh No Hanks Robot fell down! I just love his face!

At the end of the Robot races we got out the wind-up chattering Alligator head, and had some fun with it!

To end the fun, we did Super Man a few times!!

Hank and his Mamma!! Lucky lady, oh that is me!

Wednesday (12-8-10) night visitor!

Auntie Afton came bye to find some sheet music amongst Grandmas things! And so of course she had to play with Hank for a few minutes and this is what they did!
"Peek-a-boo" to Mommy!

Then they kissed!
Just after Afton left, Hank opened the closet door, all by himself.
This was a first!!

Then right before we started the bed time ritual of brushing teeth and such, he climbed up on the bed all by himself, another first! Wowee Hank!

Did he say "No"?

Yes, this darling little man has become an expert at saying "no".
I really wanted to avoid this word, but I guess it was an impossible idea!

Be ThankFUL for s'mores!

Hank likes to draw!
So does his Mommy, well and his Dadyy!
One early evening, we decided to have s'mores!
The exciting part about this was we hadn't had dinner, yet!


Hank really likes fire, from a safe distance though, which is great!
He wanted to sit on Daddy's lap while we roasted our Marshmallows, and ate our s'mores.
I took some cute video of Hank! I will try to post it later!

That is one relaxed boy!
Most people have quirks or "things", one of Hanks things is sucking on blankets.
It can be startling if you go to snuggle up with a blanket, and it is stinky and wet!

Hank loves to use his tools. He knows how to use them correctly too!

Look at that cute face!

Look who is growing!!

So- here I am!
I am 26 weeks along with this pregnancy.
That is just around 6 months.
So that means I have about 14 weeks to go.
Just about 3 months!
Maybe less if we schedule a cesarian (c-section).
Maybe more if we wait it out!
We have to make a decision by the end of the month!

Hank gives Mom a hug!

Hank likes the Machine!

Hank heads back for more!

Halloween Highlights!

This was Friday before our Ward Pizza dinner, carnival and Trunk or treat activity! I look like a witch right? And Hank was the perfect Pirate!
He got pretty good at saying "Arrrgh". He actually sounded more like an angry dinosaur than a Pirate! Still cute though!!
Mark and Hank playing at the Ward party!

Sunday after Church Mark getting ready to carve a pumpkin!

My Halloween tree looks pretty spooky, as does the corner hutch!

We didn't win the trunk prize this year, but rightfully so, there were some fabulously decorated trunks! Although- I do think my trunk was terribly spooky! Thanks to Grandma Sharon for the availability of her Honda!!

A Big Boy Bed for Hank!

Since Hank is ready to be able to get out of bed by himself, we put away his playpen which has been his bed since he was 5 months old. He now sleeps on one of Grandma and Grandpas guest room beds with out the framing or box spring!! He sure likes it.
It took him a few restless fussy minutes to fall asleep, but here he is napping after lunch today! I put the camera in nightshot mode, the photo turned out impossible to see, so I turned the flash on and got this one. His room is very dark, we have blackout curtains up!

The arrow is pointing to the 3 lines in between the legs that indicate a girl!

Isn't that the cutest little smile and just look at those cheeks!

Happy Birthday Mark!

Mark had a birthday today!
He woke up early! Did his own thing!
He opened a gift from me- it was a nice silver Timex watch! I made him a card too!
I made him a scrumptious breakfast of scrambled eggs, bacon, biscuits and gravy and milk!
Mom and Dad Lewis called from Germany!
He took a nap before church
We kept Hank out of Nursery because of a runny nose.
We left Church early because of Hank and his runny nose and fussiness!
Hank napped, Mark relaxed.
I made Mark's favorite Martha Stewart Mac' n Cheese for dinner!
He is now relaxing again!
Happy Birthday!!!

This is one of my favorite pictures of the birthday boy, it was taken summer 2009!

Birthday photos plus a bonus picture!

My birthday was fantastic!
Thanks to all those who called, sent cards, sent gifts, and shared in my 29th birthday!
Mark made me breakfast! It was delicious! Later that day he gave me a gift, a device so I can listen to my music in the car. My CD player has been broken for years. Then for dinner he took me to eat Mexican food, my favorite!!! Hank loved dinner too!!!
My great Friend Janet and her family planned a birthday picnic for me.
Here Janet and I are posing! "Cheese!!!!"
Her kids!
I met them when Jay was 8 and Julianna was 6, that was 10 years ago!
Jules made most of the picnic lunch! She is such a sweetheart!!

Here is the bonus picture!

It's Halloween Time!

OK, here is my favorite Halloween display of all times!
This is the witches lair area!

I was so excited to decorate this balcony, it didn't turn out the way I imagined, but it will do!

"Arrrrrrrggghhh!" Don't loose your head!
