Three Months

102# 29"

It's hard to believe, but I'm already three months along. Walking straight into my second trimester after I blinked and missed the first. I've gained about 4 pounds, sweet baby is the size of a lemon and has been giving me no trouble whatsoever. Except the trouble of finding clothes that fit... All my maternity clothes from Rowen are for summer, so I guess it's about time to hit Old Navy before I stretch out all my long-sleeve shirts. I certainly have more energy this pregnancy than my first. I remember being completely useless the first couple months at least. Perhaps it's because I'm chasing a toddler around and don't have time to think about it. Trying again to do what's best and eat the right things, avoid the bad things, and to stay active as much as I can. Though I'm certainly not being AS strict as I was with Rowen. I've definitely let a cup of coffee slip past my lips here and there! Ah well, little lemon will just have to survive.

With three down and just six to go, July is going to be here so quickly. Hoping and praying God gives me strength and wisdom to be a mother of two.

The Progress:
Pre-Pregnancy: 105#
One Month: 100#
Two Months: 102#

Conversations in ASL

We've been doing our best to use lots of sign language with Rowen, in hopes to improve our communication. He's been picking them up here and there, but the other day we actually had a "conversation" of sorts- and I feel like I should put it in the record books!
For a little background, Rowen hadn't had a bath in a couple days because of being different places for holidays and such. Normally, Daddy does bath & bedtime. Since birth. It's their special time together.

We had just finished a nice big messy spaghetti lunch. I asked Rowen if he'd like to take a bath. He signed "Daddy." I said, "Daddy's not home. Momma will give you a bath." Rowen shook his head "no" and signed "daddy." I wiped him up and took him out of the high chair and said, "okay, can we wash your hands?" he rubbed his hands together and walked to the bathroom. So, we washed hands (and face/head) and I put him down. He signed "bath." I said, "do you want a bath? Momma will give you a bath." To which he shook his head "no," signed "bath, daddy," and walked out of the bathroom. HAHAHA!!

The signs he's using regularly are:
daddy (he pats his head for daddy, momma, grandpa & grandma)
all done
banana (which I think just means fruit to him)
and...... of course, he's very good at pointing.
