Sam is a nice man as everyone knows. At night though when he is asleep something comes out in him that can be so mean. Last night I got up to the bathroom (big surprise) when I got back in bed I asked Sam to cuddle with me, he told me he already was cuddling with me, which he wasn't. I told him so and he told me I needed to get help! That is not the first time he has said mean things in his sleep and it won't be the last.
I don't think people should call the two year old stage the terrible two's. Elijah isn't terrible he is independent, energetic, says what is on his mind when he can find the words for it, stubborn, dramatic and loud. He is also very curious. Yesterday he emptied the recycling into the dog water bowl, I asked him to clean it up and he told me no. So of course he got a time out. When he came out of his room he was upset not because he got a time out but because his clothes were wet. Today at our doctors appt. he thought the babies heart beat was a weeooh (fire truck).
I am 28 weeks huge! I am still running and doing pilates though. Besides the fact that I am so big I feel really good. The baby is acitve and keeps me awake at night already. Hopefully at our next doctor's appt. we get to schedule the c-section so we will know the baby's birthday very soon.
oh yeah Elijah had his two year check up last week. Of course he is completely healthy. He only weighs 22lbs 11oz, and he is 32 1/2 inches tall.

Elijah's New Dance

We had Elijah's birthday party on Friday night. It was quite the party! My family, Sam's family and friends all came. Elijah had a car's cake and lots and lots of presents. He has more car stuff now than he knows what to do with.
On Friday Elijah also had his first sleep over! He slept at Aunt Laura's, in her bed with her and her four small dogs!! I think I had a harder time with it than he did.

The Good, The Bad and The Vomiting.

Beautiful and soooo nice.

Jacob is a good big brother to his Gaboo.

Make yourself at home Elijah.

Now seriously isn't that cute.

"What you gonna do now Gaboo?"

Elijah and I had a good time in Denver. It was nice to see my sister and her family. I seriously love all of them so much, they are so much fun to be around. Gaboo (Gabriel) and Elili (Elijah) got some play time together but I think Gaboo was tired of Elili by the time we left. Elijah might be a little loud, demanding and rough for Gabe sometimes. So after a full weekend of hanging out, watching the toddlers play together, and being entertained by Dana's family we went to bed early to catch an early flight out on Monday morning. About six hours before our flight I woke up thinking I was not feeling too good and right then Elijah starts throwing up in Sophie's bed! I get him and the bed cleaned up and realize I too am going to be sick. So I canceled our flight and let Juan take care of us for a day. It is nice to be home with Sam but I think us being gone for an extra day was good for him, his test went well! Elijah and I are going to spend today recovering and hanging with Sam. Thank you Dana for a good weekend, for letting us eat all your food, and for flying us there!!! Thank you Sophia for letting us take over your room and for not minding too much when your bed got puked in.

We had a good week!! Sam and I both worked this weekend but got some time together on Saturday. I took Elijah to the zoo on Tuesday and Sam took him on Wednesday. The zoo is so cool in the winter. The animals are so much more active and there are hardly any people there. Elijah can run wild for two hours and see all the animals he wants! Elijah and I are going to Denver in the morning! I am so excited, I haven't seen my sister and her family in a year. Sam has a test next Tuesday so this will give him a chance to study without us bugging him.
Our house search hasn't gone so well. There are a lot of interesting houses out there. I really don't know what people are thinking sometimes. I know we will find something in our price range and in the area we want if we stay calm and keep looking.
Next week Elijah turns two!!!! I can not believe it.
I will post pictures when I get back from Denver.
