one more pic....

Just wanted to add one more picture of Jacob that I forgot to add before... 

I can't believe November has come to an end... it sure has gone fast!  Jacob's birthday is in a week and he will be 2 years old!!!  Oh my goodness... my little boy is growing up!  Next weekend we are having our families over and a few close friends to celebrate his big day!  We are doing a train theme... well, train plates, napkins, and favors... oh and how can I forget "cho cho cookies!"... Jacob is very excited about those.  I made them to try them out for Thanksgiving and he loved them! It isn't very often Jacob gets real cookies.  I got a special "egg free" recipe.  

Speaking of Thanksgiving, we had a great great weekend!  We went to my sister's for dinner.  My brother as in town from NYC, which was so wonderful seeing him.  I will have to post some pics once I get them uploaded.  I got some shopping done, Kevin was a bit busy with swimming, but all in all we were able to relax and enjoy the holiday.  Now just 3 more weeks and it is Christmas break!!!!  We get 2 weeks off for Christmas.. that will be great!

On another note, we decided on our girl name for our baby... Isabella Grace.  We will call her Bella.  Now we have to decide on a boy name... either Brayden, Cayden, or Connor.  Well, as of right now those are the 3 we have narrowed it down to.  We are having a hard time.  Not one of them is screaming at me...  with Jacob we knew for a long time that was the name we liked.  hmmm.... I guess we will eventally figure it out.  Anyone have any input on what they like best????

Alright, I sure hope you all had a great weekend and holiday.  

Much love,
Melissa :)

A sunny day after Thanksgiving

 Outside playing today... it was actually kind of sunny out.  Although, we didn't last long... Jacob's hands got cold. I need to get him some clothes.    We (ok, actually Kevin)  painted his new room today... it looks so cute!  It is a really soft blue. I will need to take a picture.  We told him it was his new bedroom.. he was excited until I asked him if he wanted to sleep in his new bed and he said "NO" ... we will see how this new big boy room thing goes.  Oh well... at least we still have a bit. 

Hope you all had a wonderful Turkey day with your families!  We sure have a lot to be thankful for!

Much love,
Melissa :)

Sorry it has been so long!

So sorry it has been FOREVER since I have posted pics. I have been really bad the last 2 months about taking pictures. I am making myself get back into the groove. For a long time, I was addicted, now with school having started and not feeling that great with this pregnancy, I don't feel like I every have time. Anyway, here are some new ones.. I haven't played with at all (meaning, they aren't edited) I am still trying to get my photoshop working with my new mac, but they are still cute. Our little man sure is growing up. I just can't believe he will be 2 in a month. He is talking like crazy and loves life.  He thinks he can do everything himself.  

We had an ultrasound yesterday... yipee! All looks great!  So glad to be half way.. hopefully the second half goes quick, although, I should enjoy the calmness now.. I am sure like with 2 will be quite crazy.. but we are looking forward to it.

Much love to you all!
