I'm a boy mom...too!

Those that know me well, know that I was a little bit surprised/panicked when I found out I was having a boy. Coming from a family of FOUR girls, girls are what I know. That being said, these last two years of Nate's life have been dreamy (except for the getting peed on part, of course). I couldn't be more excited for my second baby boy. And I am really so excited for Nate and baby brother to become the best of friends over the years.

One of the bloggers that I regularly read did a really great post on being a boy mom. I wanted to re-post because I think she hit the nail on the head. To all my fellow boy mommies - a must read.

I'm a boy mom

I mean, how could I not be goo goo ga ga over this elmo loving little monster?

My monkey

My little monkey is getting so darn big. 10 days until he turns 2 years old. We are hard at work getting his new room ready. He has been promised that he can move into his big boy bed when he turns 2. I'm getting a little bit nervous about the transition...we will just have to keep our fingers crossed.

7 months...

Wanna see my belly?

This is my belly at 7 months with Nate.

Same bathroom...cuter phone cover.

I think I am totally bigger this time around. Which makes perfect sense given the ridiculous amount of chocolate and cupcakes I have consumed. Baby is almost 15 inches from head to heels. I find it hard to believe that I have such a big baby in my belly, but it does explain the constant rolling and kicking and punching I feel. I think baby is crowded. I am getting very excited to meet him. Countdown is definitely on...

Brian & Michelle Get Married

We spent Labor Day weekend up in Hood River, Oregon for this lovely couple's (aka Brian & Michelle aka my brother-in-law and sister-in-law) wedding. They got married at Gorge Crest Vineyards in Oregon. The venue was absolutely stunning. There was a view of Mt. Hood behind the ceremony and the cutest little barn-like building that the reception was held in.

Nate was the ring bearer and since we were in Washington and didn't have a babysitter, he joined the party. This was his first wedding where he got to stay the entire night and he partied like a rockstar. He had his own high chair/table setting at the head table.

How cute is the cupcake display? Nate waited so patiently for a cupcake.

These rocking adirondacks were a real hit with Nate. I didn't mind hanging here because it meant I got to sit down. He is getting tired in this pic, but he spent a good portion of the night standing up in the chair and rocking back and forth as fast as he could. At one point, he even asked someone to get up so that he could rock.

After dancing like a maniac he was reaaaally tired.

But of course, not too tired for a cupcake. Like mother like son.

Family pic.

We went to Portland for a quick visit after the wedding. Nate loved hanging with his cousins. Megan and Avery were the best babysitters. The weather in Portland was beyond gorgeous and we ended up just kind of hanging out/letting the kids play.

Congrats again to the new Mr. & Mrs. L. Great party : )

Tiny Dancer

We went up to Portland over Labor Day weekend for my brother-in-law, Brian's, wedding to my now sister-in-law, Michelle. Congrats to the newest Mr. and Mrs. L! I have lots of pictures to post, but of course, I lag. In the meantime, I had to share this video of Nate dancing. We love this little guy to pieces and pieces.
