I love my boys! Since it is easier for me to get pictures of the two of them together than of me and Ty, I end up having a lot more to choose from:) We have several framed around the house of the two guys together, and every time Tyson sees one he grins and points and says "Daddy!" That kid loves his dad so much, and it is so precious:)
Tyson is quite the helper around the house and he is actually making a few chores easier on his pregnant momma these days, believe it or not! He and I have a great laundry routine down. I hand him all the wet clothes from the washer and his job is to put them in the dryer, throw in the fabric softener sheet and shut the door. It keeps me from having to bend over a ton since I just have to pull the clothes out of the washing machine. He also helps me throw clothes into the washer at the beginning. Now if only I could teach him to fold everything and get it put back in the drawers, life would be divine!!! He continues to love helping me with all kinds of chores, and he helps me wipe off counters, clean the mirrors, and sweep the floor. His job is to bring the dust pan when we are ready for it. He stands by me patiently waiting for all the dirt to be swept and then squats down to hold the pan for me. Too cute. Our all time favorite chore though is vacuuming. He gets so excited when I ask if he wants to vacuum and runs to the closet to get it out. His job is to push the "on" button and then run like crazy as I chase him around the room with it. He just squeals with delight and runs right up to it and in front of me and then jumps out of the way. We both end up burning a lot of calories with this event, and I actually vacuum more times during the week than I probably would just because he likes it so much:)
Here are a few recent pregnant pictures of me. I believe these were taken at week 25, and I am 26 right now. I feel absolutely huge already. Thankfully I have been feeling really good lately (just big), so I am still saving my complaining for later in the summer:) I went to the doctor this past week and everything is still looking great so far. The only concern we have right now is that my placenta looked a little low on my first ultrasound, so I go back on the 27th to have another one and see if it has moved up or not. If it has, great, and if not, then I will probably have to have a c-section. Not my favorite alternative, but hey, what do you do??! The doctor seems optimistic since he said it was barely low to start with, so hopefully I will have some good news in a few weeks. He is also having me come for appointments every two weeks now, which is crazy! I can't believe I will have this baby in the next 14 weeks (or less) hopefully!!!
We are slowly continuing to work on the nursery. There is not a ton that needs doing, just more decorative stuff really. We finally got some curtains hung this weekend and I finally made up my mind where I wanted the crib to be, so hopefully the furniture is in its final spot and I can quit having Silas push it around every few weeks so I can try out a new layout!!! Ever the organized one, I am trying to have the room all ready early, so the last month or two I can just focus on resting and working and spending time with Tyson, and not have to mess with anything else. Ty has been so much fun lately and I am really enjoying spending time at home with him. He is talking so much more every day and is still so independent and free spirited. My only complaint is his new sleeping schedule. He still goes to bed around 8:30 pm, but oh my goodness the child gets up now between 5 and 6:15 am!!! Basically at the first light of day I guess. He comes flying into our room and jumps in the bed like the energizer bunny! At times we can get him to calm down and go back to sleep for about 30 minutes, but most likely he is up for the day. Thank goodness for me he is very content to play by himself and I can lay in bed until about 7 or so and he runs in and out to check on my every once in a while or get some kisses, and then goes back to crashing his trucks together or whatever he has found to entertain himself. He is still a good napper too, and we both look forward to sleeping a while after lunch in the afternoons!! I am definitely taking advantage of that time and sleeping too, since I just can't make it that long of a day with such an early start! Despite the early mornings, I love my crazy wild little boy and enjoy every day of getting to be his mama:)
