Reece Gibson.

I suppose it's about time I update this thing. If you aren't sure, yes, I did have baby #2 already. Reece Gibson Leuenberger was born on Dec 1, 2010 at 8:50 in the morning. He weighed 8 lbs and was 21 inches long. This delivery was so different from my first b/c I knew what I was getting into but I actually a little more nervous this time. Reece is a perfectly healthy little man who has a wonderful big brother that loves him to death!
The adjustment of having 2 kids has been more difficult than I thought it would be but is wonderful all at the same time. I think its because I feel pulled in 3 directions all at the same time and trying to get the 2 boys taken care of and still taking care of Hubby and it just gets a little overwhelming at times. I know this will all get better over time as I learn my boundaries and figure out how to meet all the needs of my 3 boys!!
I love my growing family and am so excited to see all that God has in store for us.

So--the last few weeks I've been recovering from surgery, finishing my Christmas shopping, wrapping presents, playing with the kids, going to the park, hanging out with my Grandma, addressing thank-you cards and Christmas cards....basically not much has changed, we had a baby and life must go on. No breaks or naps around here....maybe in January I'll be able to take a break!

37 weeks.

My oh my, how things grow?!! Here's a pic of me just shy of 37 weeks. I could not be more ecstatic that little man will be here in just 3 weeks. These days are getting very uncomfortable and the strange weather patterns are not helping my allergies. Sleeping is pretty much non-existant unless I take some Tylenol PM. So, I guess until my nose clears up, I'll be doped up on drugs until this baby arrives. Other than that, I feel good. Not great-let's face it, who really "feels great" when they are pregnant? Those that say they do are just plain liars!!
The nursery is ready, his diaper bag is ready and I finally think I am ready. Jax knows there is a baby in my tummy but I don't think he has any idea what is about to happen. He has such a sweet nature though, that I think he is going to absolutely LOVE his brother. We'll see.

Speaking of Jax, he is growing up so fast and becoming more and more independent. He loves to play with his trucks and cars and the way he says "cars" is just the most adorable thing ever. I love that his vocabulary is expanding every week and it thrills me to hear him finally say "Mommy".

I'll try to post some pics of him soon and then before you know it, I'll be posting pics of new baby boy!

Pumpkin Patch.

Last Year's Pumpkin pics (7 months old)

This year's Pumpkin Pics (almost 19 months old)

Still can't get him to smile for the camera too much. Plus it was super hot outside. I guess this fall and winter we will be wearing shorts and t-shirts through most of the season.

Dear Lord, as much as I appreciate the weather being in the 80's, it would sure be nice if we could have some weather closer to the low 70's. I know you're busy and have plenty of other things to be concerned about-just thought I'd make a special request. Thank You! I love you. Amen.

Me at 29 weeks.

Me at 29 weeks!
This baby is moving like crazy-I tried to take a video but of course when I pressed record he decided to take a nap. sorry-maybe next time.
We have not decided on a name for this one yet-poor baby, he just isn't getting near as much attention as the 1st, I guess that's just how it goes with each kid. We've been busy getting Jaxon's big boy room put together and I'm really excited because his new furniture arrives tomorrow and then I can really get him organized. The last 2 days I've spent cleaning out the closets upstairs. There were several boxes that I had never gone through once we moved in, so I finally threw out a ton of old junk and was able to box up alot of things to keep in the garage. It feels so good to get more organized. Now its time to to get to the Container Store to finish my projects!
Only 10 weeks to go and our handsome little man will be here! I can't wait and am getting so antsy waiting for his arrival.
