I look at the picture that heads this blog and cannot believe that is the same little boy that runs down the stairs to greet me in the morning. That makes Caillou faced pizzas and knows the difference between front loaders, excavators and back hoes. That that little boy sings jingle bells in his crib to go to sleep and loves puzzles, trains and the outside. My baby boy has become this amazing little toddler with the most wonderful personality that brightens up a room when he crashes through it. He has my grace, which is to say little or none at all and his Daddy's interest in anything that moves. That little baby is simply one of the two best things I have ever made. Skelly, I love to watch you grow.

My gorgeous girl you are so incredibly sweet and amazing to me. You smile at everyone that holds you and eagerly wait to be picked up in the morning...or middle of the night, whenever the fancy takes you. You are strong and eager to play and love to be snuggled right up against me or Daddy and hopefully your big brother too. You are trying to roll and have done so once or twice. We may have cheated and given you a little help with the arm but you seem to find it so funny to lie on your side and flop back and forth. You still hate tummy time and as seen in the picture above will only tolerate it for a few minutes before flopping your head down in frustration and agony.
Your big brother absolutely adores you. I could not have asked for the situation to be any better. He asks for you as soon as he wakes up and is dying for you to be old enough to be able to share his "pink ice cream" with. He holds your hand/arm whenever you are near him and loves to cuddle you. He's working on the "gentle" touches but I know that soon I will hear the sibling love throughout the house.
You are still occasionally sleeping through the night, but not anything that I can count on consistently and while I am on bed rest are really giving your Daddy a run for his money trying to put you to bed. I just have to keep reminding myself only a week more before I am able to pick you up out of your crib again and see your excited wiggles that someone has come to see you.
My sweet amazing little girl. I've waited my whole life for you. You take my breath away and I am so proud to watch you grow.

How far along? 37 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: not sharing- under 200.
Maternity clothes? gotta love 'em
Stretch marks? so far so good
Sleep: uncomfortable. I have the sleep number set at 25 so I am essentially sleeping in a hole.
Best moment this week: the baby's room is ready for her!
Food cravings: milkshakes-- loving Wawa's chocolate banana smoothies
Gender: team pink
Labor Signs: nope- and still holding at 0 dilation.
Belly Button in or out? so far out- it is not cute. Skelly loves to lift up my shirt and push it in.
What I miss: went to a MNO last night and missed drinking wine with the ladies.
Milestones: I am going back and forth between being so ready to meet her and feeling like we are not ready yet. Also feeling guilty because I am not as involved in this pregnancy because I'm so busy with Skelly. Can't wait either to meet my new niece!! Also, in typical J. fashion he has decided to renovate our bedroom so everything downstairs is a giant disaster which is stressing me out. He thinks he'll be done by next weekend- but that is cutting it very close for me. He's painting today- so I will update on that- but at least this time I'll have a finished bathroom to labor in if Baby M. comes sooner than anticipated.

You are 26 months now- and a few days but at this point you know how awesome I am at posting on this. Your poor sister will probably end up with a year update when she's two. Anyway, this is all about you and you are all about you right now too- which makes us laugh....and cry.
You are talking up a storm- you still repeat everything we say to you- and your go to response is always a resounding "ok". You have started to reply "I love you Momma/Daddy" when you are told how much we love you. You say, "ok, I cute" whenever we tell you how handsome or smart you are. You love to somersault all over the place. You just did it one day- We think you learned it in school but it makes you so proud and happy to bounce back up and yell, "TA!!"
You love breakfast and particularly love to eat with your girlfriend at school, Lex. It's one of the only ways I can get you out of the door in the mornings. Your favorite foods are cheese, milkshakes and fruit. Pretty typical since that's all I ate while I was pregnant with you.
You can count now- you don't actually count things most of the time but love to count out loud. You generally count in this order
2, 3, 4, 6, 6, 6, 6, 8, 9, 10!!! I'm not sure what you have against the number 1, 5, or 7.
You sing Ba Ba Black Sheep very well.
You love school buses, fire trucks, Elmo and the garbage truck.
You are simply amazing my Skelly-O-Taur.
