Is going to be a big brother!!!!!


We had our first ultrasound appointment this morning. Here is “new baby”, as Escher calls it. We were able to see the yolk sac (which eventually turns into the placenta), little baby’s head and its little arm buds. It was just swimming around in there having a good time, I’m sure Smile
We also saw a little blinking going on which the doctor said was it’s heartbeat. So crazy! We got to hear the thumpity thump too, which is such a great, reassuring noise.
All in all, we are doing very well.  As for me, other than nausea I feel pretty good. I want bacon. Lots of bacon. To be more specific, I want bacon egg and cheese biscuits. And peanut butter. But not together because that would be gross. Or would it….

The Curls are Back!

A few days ago, the humid weather beckoned Escher's dormant curls to reawaken.

"Mom, why are you taking my picture? I'm in the tub!"

This little mama could not be happier.

How friggin adorable are they?

I'm pretty sure that curl tucked behind his right ear holds my heart in it's hand. Even if he does get another haircut, we are leaving that curl.

Yes, I understand that might look a little...weird...

Ok, maybe its just that smile that holds my heart in it's hand. So I guess, at some point, the curl can go. But only if I can take lots and lots of pictures of it first.

Little cutie patootie.

  • We have added more syllables to our words!

"bwah" is now "febwah" = zebra
"gaf" is now "giwaffe" = giraffe
"elley" is now "elley-PHANT" = elephant
"koh" is now "ki-koh" = tiger
"mom" is now "mom MEEEE"
"dad" is now "dad DEEE"

  • Escher can now say his own name, "Esch ER"
  • He is still obsessed with his elephant costume from Halloween. I'm pretty sure we have worn it everyday since. He sees it and says "elley costume on me!"

So, because I can never remember which volume of Escherisms we are on (and I am too lazy to check) we are going to just call these little posts about the idiosyncrisies of our dude, Escherisms. No Volumes.

We are well into the throes of being 2. Oh boy, is he 2...

  • Escher is definitely all about himself lately. "ME! LOOK ME MOM! MOM LOOK ME JUMP! MEEEEEE JUMP!"  <<<<< CRASH!!!!!>>>>>>  "Dude ok Mom... Dude ok"
  • "Me me me ME ME me ME me me" You get the point.
  • "no, Fur, my Dumbo. No Fur MY cheese. No Fur MY bath. No Fur MY _________"
  • which brings me to my next point. Escher doesn't like sharing. On occasion he will surprise me, when we are babysitting, but for the most part, the toys he has are his. No one elses.
So we are very egocentric these days. Just another phase right? Right. Hopefully. Right?
