6 years and the Zoo

Last Saturday Scott and I celebrated our 6th wedding anniversary! We decided to go to the zoo in the morning with Tyson since he can never get enough of that place. We were going to go golfing that evening, but it was still so hot/humid and windy we decided to go out to a movie instead. Its sad that we couldn't even remember the last time we went to the movie theaters! So it was definitely a treat to go! So Happy Late Blogging Anniversary to my husband!We (I) decided to ride the sky tram at the zoo. We were clear at the farthest end of the zoo and it's a long walk back. And let's face it, I was tired and hot. Tyson was so intrigued by the whole thing. He still is talking about the rhino's in the muddy dirt that the tram passed over. Showing my bump that has definitely become more pronounced in the past 2 weeks or so. I'm 6 1/2 months this week.Tyson's investigative face on the tram. He gets those furrowed eyebrows when in deep concentration. A trait from his dad!Here he's trying to blow on this dandelion and wanting me to help. It's one of his new favorite thing to do and he likes to pick them when out for walks.
Fun day! It's been getting hot and muggy this past week. We've had great spring weather so far and now I'm just bracing myself for the last few months of pregnancy in the full summer heat!

Well I don't have much. Just a few updates on Tyson and baby girl stuff. Tyson is growing rapidly. His feet are already expanding out of the size 9 sandals I bought him for the summer. We'll be moving him to a big boy bed soon. Not because he crawls out, but because he's so big. I hate to give up the enclosed sleeping arrangement, but the poor kid needs his space. Not to mention we'll need the crib again in a few months (less than 100 days)! He loves to count and sing his ABC's as well as new songs he learns in nursery. Its fun to try and decipher the the song he is singing. Usually the actions give it away more than the words do. He loves animals and bugs, reading books, puzzles or playing trains usually more than playing with his basketball hoop. (yikes...we need to work on that!) His new thing to ask is, "What you doing mom?" or "What's happening?" (with something around him) or "You happy, mom?" (usually after he gets scolded). We've also experienced a few of the 2 year old tantrums which seem to have come overnight. Scott says he gets his stubborness from me. Maybe so. But he's also very good to say his thank-you's and to tell me that his food is good.I had him lay in his crib for a picture after nap time. I wasn't sure he'd do it but he thought it was really fun and wanted more pictures to be taken of him. See what I mean about being big...we'll just bypass the toddler bed and go straight to a twin size!I have been busy buying pink. It's been quite fun, I must admit. I've also been trying to get some projects done for her room. We've painted it a really light pink, I got her bumper and crib skirt (down below) before I even knew she was a girl. It was too cheap at Target to pass up so I hid it in our guest room closet behind my wedding dress thinking Scott would never find it. One day he came downstairs asking my why I had girl bedding upstairs. Apparently he was looking for wrapping paper and discovered it. Oops! Luckily we got to keep it and I saved him a bunch of money! I found these little lamps at a garage sale for a steal (My friend helps me bargain). Before, they were this plastic pink see through lamp with Dora around the top of one and cinderella princesses around the other. I took the beads off and spray painted it white and put the beads back on. They'll make perfect little night lights. I made this blanket after a pattern that my sister had from a blanket she made for Tyson. Easy and so fun!
We don't have a name yet...can't seem to agree on one as of now. Hopefully in the next 100 days we'll settle on one!
