It's been awhile since I have blogged and I don't know why. I'm assuming that it is my lack of energy due to being pregnant, plus I rarely turn on my computer now that I have an iPod touch. I am almost 16 weeks along now and we are getting very excited to find out the gender. We should find out next week, but we are going to keep it a secret until we figure out a cute way to tell our parents first. We've had the same girl name picked out since I was pregnant with Payson and we FINALLY decided on a boys name two days ago. Finding a name that is different, but not weird, is getting harder and harder for us. We are really looking forward to announcing the gender and name to everyone.
This past week was not fun because Payson has had some kind of stomach virus. He only threw up a few times, but his diarrhea had given me lots of diaper and outfits changes. The only up side to a sick kid is how cuddly they are.
In the past couple of weeks, Payson's vocabulary has EXPLODED! It seemed to come out of nowhere. He is learning a few new words a day. He even says words that neither of us have taught him. His memory for recent events has also kicked in. Which means, I have to mean what I say now because he holds me to it. He is learning his colors and how to count too! We have also decided to enroll him in a toddler/parent gymnastics class that starts in the Spring. We picked the Saturday morning class, so we could take turns going with him. I am so excited he is finally old enough for these kind of things.
Big things are happening for Beckett too. Yesterday he went for his 9 month check-up, got two shots and didn't cry at all. He is now 19lbs. 11oz and 29.25 inches long. After being able to army-crawl for over a month now, he has finally started to crawl on his knees a little and start to pull up on things. A few weeks ago he said "Da-Da" for the first time and last week he stared saying "Ma-Ma". His top two teeth finally broke through and, thanks to his teething necklace, he is still sleeping through the night.
Well, I think that is all for now. I hope everyone is doing good. Enjoy the recent pictures.
