Oops, somebody is stuck!
It seems like forever since my last post on here. Not too much has been going on. We have been watching a lot of basketball on TV. Mike has also been working on his big Masters project so he has been very busy and monopolizing the computer in the evenings. I have also been busy reading. I swore I wasn't going to get into the Twilight craziness. I thought it all seemed silly. All 3 of my sisters have the books. Katie and Tracy have finished all 4 of them and Jackie is currently on book # 3. Katie let me borrow her 1st book a few months ago. I just kept putting it off because I didn't think I would like it. I started it last Wednesday in the evening and was finished with it last Friday. I couldn't put it down. Last Saturday I got together with my sisters and Tracy let me borrow her 2nd, 3rd and 4th books. I started the 2nd book last Sunday and finished the 4th one yesterday. I couldn't put them down. Needless to say my housework has suffered this past week. :-)
On a more exciting note we have our big ultrasound on April 9th! That is only 1 1/2 weeks away. Since we are finding out so closed to Easter we have decided not share the news until Easter. I can't wait!

After we got home from the parties on Saturday we decided to take the dogs for a walk. They absolutely love to go for walks and unfortunately they don't get to go very often. I can't take Eli and the dogs so if it is just me going I am going to take Eli. But since we were all going Reggie and Maggie got to go too. Mike pushed Eli in the stroller and I walked Reggie and Maggie. I am hoping that we get to do this more and more now that they weather is getting nicer.
Sunday morning we got up and went to church. We always go to 9:00 mass and it is usually packed but this time it wasn't at all. I am guessing that people just got confused by the time change. Sunday afternoon we went to celebrate Maya's 3rd birthday. It was quite the event. My side of the family is a decent size and Maya's daddy's family is very big and when you add in their friends you get a very big party. Maya had a blast. It was fun watching her open presents. She got so excited about each one. After we got home last night my sister Katie called and put Maya on the phone. She said "thank you for my Foofa jammies, I am wearing them right now!" She was so excited and told her mommy she had to call and say thanks! She is so smart for only being 3 years old.

Eli got this little giraffe toy for his birthday from one of my best friends Irene. It is a really neat toy. The body of the giraffe is a guitar, the legs are rattles and the head is a whistle. Eli loves this toy. He has always liked to play with the guitar and the rattles but he would always bring me the head so I could make it whistle. I have been working with him on blowing in it to make it whistle but he would just put his mouth on it and do nothing. Today he was sitting on the floor playing with it and he finally made it whistle! He turned and looked at me with the biggest smile on his face. I could just tell that he so proud of himself. For the next half hour he walked around makin it whistle. It was too cute. Thanks Irene and Darren for such a cool toy!

Just sitting in his book crate!
Climbing out of the toy crate!
A few weeks ago I took Eli to the Dr to get his 1 year shots. While we were there I had the Nurse check his weight and yay he is finally 20 lbs. This means he now gets to face forward in his carseat. He absolutley loves it. I was a little worried about switching his carseat because he still slept so well in his old carseat, but it all worked out. We went up to Fowler this past weekend for my mom's birthday and Eli slept for a little over an hour on the way!
He loves it!
