Baby Number 2 and Pumpkin Patch!!

Well these past few weeks have been pretty uneventful for the West Family. Lots of studying for Ryan, lots of running around and playing for Blake and lots of laying on the couch feeling yucky for me. I realized the other day that I had not shared our exciting news on here yet.

Baby West number 2 is on the way!!!!!!...... Wednesday I will 17 weeks along and am still feeling the sickness of the whole thing. It is starting to go away some days but still likes to come back on others. This baby is due on April 1st. We are so excited to welcome another child into our home and I can't believe I am almost halfway through the pregnancy. On Monday I have an appointment and don't know if they will do an ultrasound but in about 4 weeks we will be finding out what we are having. I am too impatient to wait. We would love what ever we get. Having a girl would be wonderful because we don't have one yet but on the other hand having a boy would be just as wonderful because we have everything we would possibly need for a boy!! I guess we will see in a few weeks.

In other news, yesterday Ryan's school had a Arts and Crafts show and also had a pumpkin patch for the kiddies. It was a lot of fun to take Blake to and have him be around other little kids. He loved going around and touching the pumpkins and then running back into our arms. He is getting so big and I can't believe how much he is learning to do.

Lately his favorite thing to do is walk around the house and find a little piece of trash and bring it to us and say "YUCKY" while shaking his head. He is starting the destruction phase of being a little boy though I don't know if this phase ever goes away. He loves grabbing trash cans and tipping them over, pulling anything that is on the table down onto the ground. Taking all of our movies off of the rack and throwing them on the floor. He also likes to go and flush the toilet over and over, take every toy out of his toy box and throw it on the floor and then walk away, and lets not forget his favorite word... "NO" with the cutest little smile you can't get mad at.

On the other hand, Blake is the sweetest little boy to be around. He gets so excited when Ryan gets home from school and runs up to the door when he hears it unlocking. Blake loves to go on walks with Ryan to get the mail every day after school. He loves to give hugs and kisses and he loves giving high fives. My favorite thing is that he loves to snuggle in the morning with his blanket and me. He is such a sweet boy and I can't imagine my life without him. I am so excited to add another baby to the mix so he can have someone to play with.
