I have been told by lovely, beautiful, godly, sister-in-law to "seriously update your blog." She is right. So I thought I'd tell you about our life lately....here you go Cammion. :) I love you.
Our power was out last week for two days, so we resided at Mom and Dad Pattersons for those days+thanksgiving+an extra day for Kyle and his dad to work on our brakes (Saturn)= a long, fun week at Nana and Papa's. During the week, Rowen and Gunnar both had viruses and had fevers. Mama went shopping on Black Friday with my usual crew and got all of our Christmas shopping done. :) We also played Rook, watched 2 movies (How to Train Your Dragon and Up), played Super Mario Brothers on the Wii, read Nahum, finished my book, went Christmas Tree shopping, cut down our Christmas tree, missed church because of my sickies, decorated for Christmas, did a craft, and went grocery shopping after most of our food was bad from the power outage. It was a wonderful week and this week will be the same I am sure. God is good to us!
As far as baby goes, baby #3 is a mover. Always feeling kickies in the afternoon and evening and I love it! I am somewhat "fearful" of the action this baby is already getting. I am thinking he/she will not be like Rowen (calm, and the most amazing sleeper in the world). :) But what do I know?! Maybe it just wants to get out and play with brothers....he/she hears them laughing all the time! I love this stage of pregnancy!
Gunnar is ever so cute by engaging us in conversation and telling his Mama that she is beautiful almost every morning. He is quite the reader during his three "reading times"
everyday. He helps me cook, clean, fold towels, and gets Rowen water and snacks. I often hear him telling Rowie that he "needs to calm down because everything is fine" when he cries. Wonder where he got that from! He loves playing outside and is thoroughly enjoying his new snow boots from Grandma! He has quite the imagination and is always "killing" the bad dinosaurs and crocodiles that attack our house and tells them that they are "evil." We laugh a lot.
Rowen is becoming a little charmer and flirt. His two words are: "bisz-sha" and "aba-dah." He is the most darling baby and I find myself chewing his ears and cheeks because they are so cute. He leans to give me kisses a lot and does everything brother does. He loves when Gunny makes him laugh and loves to eat. He eats all the time and when he is not eating, he is sleeping. He is pretty much the easiest baby I have ever met.
Until next time....
