Halloween and Baby #2

Here's our little Sheriff! He was SO adorable I don't even know what to do with myself. We didn't do a lot of trick-or-treating this year. Three houses. Two were the grandparents. But, he enjoyed himself and actually made it home with a TON of candy. Ah, the life of the only grandchild! He's had a really good run. Next year we'll do more for sure.

A little baby #2 update:

We're scheduled for an induction on 11/11/11! (if we make it to friday) We're getting geared up around here. And by "we" I really mean me. Lots of laundry, charging of camera batteries, packing of bags, freezing of meals, stocking of shelves and general house cleaning. Meanwhile, Daddy is spending his weekend on the couch with a little stomach bug and Dean is recovering from a nasty cold. Not ideal but, we are grateful that our parents are so close and SO HELPFUL! We love them and appreciate them more than they know!

I'm also so grateful for such a sweet, loving, happy and adaptable 2-year-old! Dean, I love you and adore you and thank you for hanging in there with Mommy, even when she's big and fat and doesn't want to do anything fun. Even when she can't bend down comfortably to play trains with you. And, especially when her patience is running thin. I'm sorry and I love you. You are the best and I couldn't ask for anything more.

Baby #2 is getting bigger everyday (praise the Lord!), kicking my right side non-stop and moving around every time he hears his big brother yell, talk or play....which is a lot. :) I'm so excited to introduce Dean and the baby. What a moment that will be. Wow. Please keep us in your prayers this week. Specific prayer requests for a safe and healthy delivery and baby AND for a speedy and full recovery of Daddy & Dean so everyone is on their game by Friday!

See you soon!
