New Word!

So, we have been a bit worried about Jonah not talking quite so much yet. We have heard him say da da, ma ma, and yeah but that's really about it. He really doesn't even say those very often. He babbles all the time though and it sounds like he is trying to talk.
My brother was visiting this past week and while he was here Jonah started saying truck. We were on the road a lot and kept passing semis and now every time he sees one he says truck.
I have heard from others, that sometimes if your child is mobile sooner, they talk later. I hope that's true because he is really just babbling right now. He also is very into pointing and grunting for stuff he wants.
He is very good with understanding what different things are just not really saying what they are yet.

It's a Girl!

So, we had our 20 week ultrasound on Wednesday and found out we're having a girl! Everything is looking good. She is apparently a bit long for how far along we are. That is just crazy to us since we are such small people. We think it would be funny if she was taller than the rest of us. Too early to tell, but really exciting. Now we will have one of each and can't be more excited! Can't wait to meet her!

Easter Weekend

So, this was Jonah's second Easter. Last year he was really too young to do any partaking in festivities, but this year was a different story.
We started out on Friday going to his first Easter egg hunt. It was a part of a mom's club I'm in. He was so cute. I really didn't know what to expect since he is only fourteen months, but he had such a good time. After all the eggs had been hidden, it was time for the kids to hunt the eggs. He actually picked up the eggs and put them in the basket all by himself, I was so proud. Unfortunately the weather was really cold/windy so the festivities were cut short. He had so much fun though.
On Saturday morning we went to another local Easter egg hunt. This time my husband and mom got to go. He really loved looking for eggs.
He has really enjoyed playing with the eggs. He likes opening and closing them. He has been playing with the plastic eggs for almost a week now.
On Sunday I had to work but when I got home we did some fun stuff. We gave him his Easter basket full of goodies, which we have been eating of course. He got some sand toys, crayons, and magnets from the Easter bunny.
He really made out this year. I can't wait for next year.
Trying to find our camera cord, will post pictures of the weekend soon.
