Monthly Update - Seriously, I can't believe it has been that long!

Where in the world does the time go? I can't believe it has been a month and a half since I last posted. Well, I have a lot of catching up to do. We have been busy. We celebrated Tegegn's second birthday with family in December. It is actually kind of nice that his birthday is close to Christmas because we get to see everyone to celebrate his special day! He really enjoys opening gifts this year. My favorite is when he helps us open a gift and says he says "WOW!" He has really started trying to talk and is doing so well. He still signs when he says love you, more and please. He repeats almost everything. One of my favorite things that he does right now is when we tell him to say "thank you" he says "welcome." It is priceless.

At the last minute, we decided to take a road trip the week after Christmas to Florida to visit my Grandpa. We had a really nice time even though it was a bit chilly. We had some great family time and Tegegn did really well traveling. On our way down to Sarasota, we stopped overnight in Atlanta. We went to Snow Mountain because we thought Tegegn would enjoy the train ride and activities. We had a good time and all of us went to bed at 7:00 that night. We were exhausted. While in Florida we made it to the beach several times.

Our family of three....soon to be four! We are so blessed.

My boys. I love them dearly. They make me a better person and have shaped me into who I am today.
Tegegn was so serious when it came to playing in the sand. He really enjoyed himself even though his hands were covered in sand. (He hates his hands to be dirty.)

We really love our family time on the weekends. It was really nice to be at home the first couple of weekends in January. My cousin, Lauren, and her boyfriend, Cale, came to our house for one of those weekends. We hung out here and had a great time getting to know them better. Tegegn loves Cale so he had a ball.

Tegegn loves shoes. He loves to bring them to us and put them on. He would sleep in his shoes if we would let him. Silly boy!

Our Grandma purchased this snow suit for Tegegn last year, but it was a bit big. This year we decided to try it and if fit, but it was a little snug. No worries, Tegegn didn't care that he looked like the kid off of the Christmas Story. All he cared about was going outside!

On of Tegegn's favorite things is to play with his cars, trucks, trains and tractors at his table. Although this table takes up a lot of space in our living room, it is our saving grace. He loves it! It was a hand me down and we are so thankful for it....

As far as the pregnancy goes, I have been so blessed. I have nothing to complain about and feel really good. Most of the clothes that I wear these days come from the maternity section; however, I still can fit in some of my normal clothes so that is helpful. I can feel her kick throughout the day which is pretty comforting. I can still see my feet, but I can tell that I am pregnant when I try to get up off of the floor. This Wednesday will mark 29 weeks. It has gone by so fast and April will be here before we know it.
