Bubble man

Luca still LOVES the bath and I budget about an hour for bath time because that is how long he usually wants to stay in there (or longer). It is not a nightly routine but a fun activity in the day. Luca likes to swim like a fish in the water and have lots of bubbles in the tub! He is going to have a little sister in the bath with him pretty soon. I am feeling ready to meet this little lady and hold her in my arms and not my belly. We will see when she will arrive, certainly no signs yet...

Little get away!

John and I were able to get away for a night last weekend to the Green Cat Guest House and B and B just across the water in Poulsbo, WA thanks to our dear friend, Mari who stayed with Luca. It was so nice to get to relax, enjoy a full, hot breakfast, and walk around the cute historical town of Poulsbo. Luca had a great time water coloring, and playing with Aunt Mari! What a much needed and appreciated 24 hours before baby number two arrives!

It snowed in Seattle yesterday and is still here today! I love the snow and Luca loves it this year too! We spent all afternoon in the snow yesterday and this morning! Here are some pictures. We went sledding, made a snowman with Jess, Kimi, and Layna and had a blast. Luca did not want to come inside at the end of the day and was just laying in the snow-I ended up having to carry him in crying. I was glad I had gotten him a pair of snow pants the other day after we were without them in Germany when it snowed. We also got to go sledding with Scarlett yesterday! She was so happy. Scarlett decided the sled was a boat and Luca decided it was a train. You can tell that it only snows about once a year in Seattle since neither one was convinced it was a sled!

Baby girl

Good News...the baby turned! Yay! She is head down now and not breeched anymore. I had a dr. appointment today and an ultrasound confirmed she is head down. Anyway, I am happy and relieved and hoping that the V-Back will work out! We have an end date of Feb. 21st if I don't go into labor before that I will have a c-section that day.

Luca's popeye shirt

I got this shirt last year at Goodwill and found it downstairs when I was going through clothes as it was too big for Luca when I got it...I thought it was so cute because Luca calls my dad, Popeye. I tried to put it on Luca yesterday and he said he did not like it because that man was NOT Popeye and he wanted a picture of the real Popeye on the shirt. I sang the Popeye the sailor man song a few times and now he seems to like it since it is now a musical shirt. We love you real Popeye! In the first picture Luca is also holding a Dora sticker so that Dora can say Cheese too.

I can't get a nursery room ready for baby number two because John is working VERY hard to complete two awesome bedrooms and a bathroom in the basement, but I was able to get a new dresser/changing table for this baby girl. The one we had from Luca was given to us and was great, but the drawers did not work. John put the dresser together for me last night and I filled it up with some of the girls clothes we have had handed down us! So much fun!
