Aviation Mueseum

Saturday morning, little man and the hubs were on their own! My plans kept me out and about until lunch time and the boys were busy in the few hours I was gone!

They started off with Saturday morning soccer practice. At this point, soccer is old news to little man. He is still excited to go but mainly just happy to be playing outside. 

After practice they hit up the New England Air Museum (little man loves airplanes). He was so excited to tell me all about it when I got home!!

Little man loves to help in any way that he can. Giving June food and water is something we do every morning. He also likes to help me empty the dishwasher, vacuum, and carry in groceries. As the hubs was bringing up the trash cans he ran over to lend a hand. Such a good little munchkin :)

Playing Catch

Almost every night when the hubs comes home from work, he takes little man outside to play. This is everyone's favorite part of the day! The boys love being outdoors and (more importantly) mama gets a break!

Last night they played catch with a small football and it was really sweet. You can see in the video we're easily distracted but still having fun!

Lil Comedian

Little man had the hubs and I laughing so hard the other night. He was walking around, grunting and growling, holding his lower back and pushing his belly out. He was doing an impression of me!! I guess pregnancy takes a toll on us all! He is SO funny and just has so much personality! Love it!!!

Tees + Foam

Ages ago I picked up a block of floral styrofoam (from the Dollar Tree for $1) knowing I would use it for something.  We practiced pushing old golf tees into the foam. Awesome! Then we took it to a whole new level and added the mallet. Little man loves to use tools like dad and was really excited to be allowed to hammer. Plus it is good practice for eye hand coordination and fine motor skills.  This might be one of our favorite activities to date!

Weekend Recap

We had a really laid back weekend! We started out with Saturday morning soccer practice. Little man loved it but was pretty easily distracted. It is pretty hard to keep a 2 year olds attention for 45 minutes!!

Playing with the grass

Taking an unauthorized break

Sunday we went to the park and out for ice cream afterward. Little man still doesn't like ice cream but he did manage to eat the whipped cream, hot fudge and Reese Pieces! 

Our little dare devil...  "Look Mom, no hands!"

We also worked on the nursery a bit, hanging some poms above the rocker. 

We had really nice weather this weekend but summer is fleeting. Our nights got as low as 32 but our afternoons were sunny and in the 60s. We were able to open the windows, get some fresh air, and play outside. 

We have a pretty busy week ahead of us.   This is my last week of work!

90 degrees

Today we woke up to a 90 degree house. How did that happen?! May I present exhibit A: 

Apparently, last night the thermostat had been set to 90 by the little munchkin. I caught him in the act again this morning. He loves dials, switches and buttons so I have a feeling this may be an ongoing battle!

Loving It Lately

Lately, we have been loving this little, green lap tray I picked up at Michael's for a few dollars. I filled the sides with crayons and he likes to sit and color. It also makes a great little table for breakfast! Today, little man is using his green tray to enjoy toast with peanut butter, apples and Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood (his favorite cartoon)!

30 weeks

After the hubby took my pic, little man stood against the wall and said, "CHEESE!"

3D ultrasound!!

Last night we had a 3D ultrasound to see our little girl! It was SO fun! Our parents were able to watch the ultrasound live from their computers so it was a really neat experience for all of us! She had her hands and the cord in front of her face almost the whole time so it made it thought to get a clear picture.

Here are some of the pics. She looks so different in each one! I don't know yet if she looks more like me, the hubby or little man! I cannot WAIT for her to get here!

Here is a video! You can tell she is floating in fluid. You can also see her yawn, open her mouth and stick out her tongue! We had 30 minutes of watching this and it STILL wasn't enough!!

We also did a 3D ultrasound with little man while we were still in Louisiana! He was twelve days older at the time and much chubbier! Here are his pics for you to compare. Do you think they look like siblings?

Apple Picking

First of all, I would like to give a shout out to my father-in-law, today is his birthday!  Happy Birthday, Grandpa Mike!!

Now... to apple picking.

After soccer practice on Saturday, we stopped at Dunkin Donuts to pick up a hot apple cider... But they didn't have any!! So, on impulse, we decided to go straight to the apple farm! We picked our own apples, gobbled up an apple cider donut (little man washed it down with his beloved apple juice) and had a wagon ride. After all of this, we managed to leave sans apple cider! At least we have some fresh, crisp apples to munch on!

Pretending to eat the apple

So serious! 

Look to the left... 

Now look to the right... 

Looking at each other

Mmmm Mmmm

3 feet tall!

Soccer Practice!

Today was little man's first soccer practice! He loved it!! He is in the parent & me 2-yr old group so the hubs was with him the whole time.

[I tried to take as many photos/videos as possible for his grandparents' sake... so consider yourself warned!]

Headed to the soccer field. We are excited!

New T-shirt!

Water break before we get started

Warming up, moving our arms in circles

Running from goal line to goal line

Practicing our kicking

Doing great! 

Receiving some coaching advice from Dad

Giving some coaching advice TO dad

Oops! Head in the net.
Our practice was about 45 minutes.  Towards the end, we were starting to get a little bit tired. But we had so much fun and can't wait until next week!  PS- does this mean I am a soccer mom now ?!  yikes!
