All about Beckett

With baby sister coming soon i wanted to make sure i took about minute to do a little update about Beckett! He is 2 years and almost 9 months old.

-We have been working on the whole potty training thing for quite a while now and we recently made a big leap-i am sure some of the mommas know exactly what i am talking about:) He still however won't use any "public" bathroom in any way (teetee or poopoo), and this includes his school-Any advice on how to fix this will be GREATLY appreciated!!
-He still loves Dora/Diego but he is also really into Thomas, Mickey, Wubzy too.
-He is all boy in the sense that he loves any kind of, football, soccer. Derek has been playing church league sports lately and the other day Beck asked me if there would be fireworks after the game!! I hated to break the news to him that this wasn't quite the same league as the Braves:)
-His diet is still pretty much the same as it was at 18 months, but now he will eat "green french fries" aka. Green Beans. He pretty much lives off of chicken, friut, milk, oj, and nutrigran bars
-Talking up a storm. There is nothing he can't or won't say these days.
-We moved him into a big boy bed when we moved into the new house. He does fine in it but has a big tendancy to sneak into our bed in the middle of the night. I know we need to fix it, but i am so tired these days and derek's gets up so early it is a battle we just aren't ready to fight yet.
-He can name pretty much any and all forms of construction equipment. They are building a house right across from us and the day they used dumptrucks to bring in dirt he thought he had died and gone to heaven. We spent most of the day eating popscicles on the front steps:)
-People comment a lot on how tall he is. I am wondering where he measures up on the charts, but we have a few more months til we are back at the doctor.
I guess i could go on forever, but i will wrap it up and say that we are super excited about seeing him being a big brother to his new sister. He loves to talk about what he will do for her and how he will get to hold her when she comes out. I am hoping he doesn't get too confused when she gets here and the transition goes well:) so we will see in a few weeks i guess!!

A Night in the Hospital

Swimming with daddy!
He seems to prefer that vest to a ring these days...

Causey, Clayton, and Beckett chilling on the beach

So as I am sure many of you know about 2 weeks ago while we were at the beach I got one heck of a stomach bug on our last night there. Without going into details I will just say it was really bad, and as a result it landed me in the hospital overnight for dehydration. This is the 2nd time this pregnancy I have had the stomach bug and it is NOT fun when you are 8 months pregnant! It took about a week, but i finally recovered-yay! The main thing I took away from that whole experience is 1. i will never eat another shrimp poboy and 2. it reminded me just how much that i.v. in your hand hurts and i am not looking forward to that when the time comes in a few weeks!

Speaking of a few weeks, we were also told by Dr. T that she really doesn't see me making it to the end of June. I didn't really know that when you have a repeat section that once you start to dialate you pretty much deliver then. There is no "just go home and we'll schedule you next week" like before. With Beckett I started dialating by 37 weeks and when i went in to be induced at 38 weeks I was 3cm. I am still holding out for sometime the week of June 23, but the doctor told me to be ready to go by 37 weeks. And that means i still have a TON to do:)

The nursery is coming along, and i think my MIL is almost done with the bedding. We are this close to picking a name too, so stay tuned for that:) It has been the hardest thing in the world for me and I am so ready to just settle on something.

So, until then here are some pics from the beach!!!
