What a Strange Child

Last night Big Red put Karrots in the laundry basket after chasing her around trying to ensure she didn't eat anything off the floor or suck on wires. She loved it!

This morning Karrots decided she wasn't comfortable until she crawled up on daddy's pillow in her sleep to knocked out.

Here's a new thing for her...She loves putting her hands up in the air over her head. "Up to the sky!!"

Today my mom decided that Karrots would use the new car seat facing forward. "The seat says it's good for kids over 29" and over 20 pounds!..." Needless to say, that's not the only criteria. She's gotta be at least a year old here...

Also, I've looked into a home birth for this new little one on the way. It's WAY cheaper than what we were even expecting to pay with Karrots. Also, it'll be with the midwife who helped my sister in law and my friend, Daja, with their kids. Keep it in the family!

Baby #2

As we've finally told Big Red's parents, it's official! We're pregnant!

I was hesitant to tell people because I look test last Monday and Wednesday and I got a faint line. I was kinda freaking out that I could have miscarried for various reasons. BUT! Saturday I tested again and it was a nice solid pink line!

In talking to my girlfriend, who happens to be training to be a midwife, she calculated that I was five weeks on Wednesday and will be due January 10th.

This will definitely be a homebirth!!

Also, here are a couple of pictures from our Mother's Day:

As last night Karrots had a fever and threw up, we spent the morning sleeping and trying to get better. At one point Big Red had We eventually made it to my parents' for dinner and fun.

Karrots put her handprints on a card for me. That's as far as he got. I'm sure it'll be great when it's done!
