Becoming A Person

This photo was taken after she pushed the upholstered rocking chair in her room up to her dresser and pulled out most of the CD's and necklaces in the top drawer. I went to see what she was doing, and this is what I found, standing in the rocking chair.

She calls her new piece of clothing a hat. Obviously, potty training is going really well.

I put her down for her nap, with the underwear still on her head. And she still had it on, two hours later!

Today she also said the following phrases:

Oh My Gosh!
Brown Shoes - CUTE!
Stop Whining

I guess it's time to reel in the language. Thankfully, no audible swear words yet. Utterly amazing!

A Little Bit of Minnesota, Right Here In Jaw-Jaw

*Note: That's GEORGIA for all you Northerns who don't understand the bastardized southern version of the English language.

Everyone put your hands together for....

Baby Bonk number two! We've had a little secret that we've only told a few (hundred, it seems), but now that I'm almost thirteen weeks, it only seems right to make the announcement official on Baby Coffee. We've got baby number two on the way. If I haven't returned your phone calls, or even made contact with you over the holidays, it's simply because this tiny little baby has been beating me down. Making me sicker than sick. It's been a miserable three months. It seems I'm starting to feel better since I'm eating more than crackers, soup and water.

Today I went in for one of those ultrasounds they give OLD pregnant women, and everything is looking excellent. The doctor asked if I wanted to see if it was a boy or a girl and I was surprised they could even determine the sex that early. I thought it wasn't until 20 weeks. Oh so wrong! We could see very clearly that this Baby Bonk is a BOY. I was so stunned and shocked I forgot to get the ultrasound image from the technician. I was SURE I was having a girl. I've been saving pink outfits for 2+ years now and have a pretty good store started in my parents basement.

Now it's onto to the name game for the next 6 months. Suggestions always welcome, but not necessarily taken.

The next Bonk chapter arrives sometime on or around July 20th. Thankfully, before the dreaded month of August in Atlanta.
