October... still waiting for Halloween.

Well October has almost come and Gone...
It's Crazy to think that with in the next month our little girl will be here. We have been doing everything we can to get ready for this little girl. My biggest worry is what I'm going to do with Titus when I'm in the hospital. He is a big mama's boy so who ever gets him is going to have their hands full when it comes to sleeping. I have finally got him to the point that i don't have to cuddle him to put him in bed.. kind of bitter sweet. When bed time comes around he takes a bath, brushes his teeth, watches a show with his plug & blanket. Then he gets a story, prayer, Hugs & kisses to mom and dad. He then Lays down and says "mommy book" meaning mommy time for you to sit in the chair and read your book while i fall asleep. It's a busy routine but it works for us.
Mike is getting tired of school, and i don't blame him. But good news is that he only has about 6 more weeks then he is DONE with sitting in the class room.
I've been doing everything i can do to get ready for this little girl to come, nesting if you will. I have organized the Kitchen, and our bed room. Titus' room is already taking on the baby clothes and is going to be dejunked this week as will the pantry, & front closet. I'm saving all the heavy scrubbing for after Halloween is that if i do over do it Brynn is in the all clear (36 + weeks)
Titus is Growing up way to fast but i am taking it as a good thing. He is really good at listening (most of the time.) He helps around the house. The other day when i was cleaning the kitchen he wanted to clean too so i gave him the water bottle and a rag and he went to work. He also likes to help put his toys and books away. He loves to cuddle my tummy and give Brynn kisses. He likes to throw things away, which is also a bad thing when he is done with his sippy cup.
Brynn is doing great .. we have an apt on Wednesday (Halloween) so we will see how things are going. Her bed is ready and her clothes are ready.

Now for pictures.
 Watching Toy Story... He loves this movie and Cars
 Showing off his Growth Chart.

 When did he grow up?
 Gutting his "Pumtin"
 He Lasted long enough to get some pictures.
 The Finished Product.
 At the Halloween Family Fright Feast at the Student Union


 He loved the Goats.
 and the Pony ride (this was his second ride)
 He didn't want dad to help him.
 after we got the car seat ready for Brynn, Titus wanted to sit in it.. so he climbed in and watched TV.
This is how we found him before we went to bed one night... silly kid. i think i should be worried.

Things Titus can say. and some other thoughts

This is mainly for me so i don't forget things. 
For those of you who don't know Titus LOVES to talk, and has a pretty impressive vocabulary for a 20 month old. I am always amazed at how much he does talk for a boy and how much i can understand. So while he is playing the "Mac, Queens truck" (Mac McQueens Truck)  I thought I would post a few of his little says and words.

"Mommy, What Doin?"
"Snack" (fruit Snacks)
"Pumtin" (Pumpkin)
"Hi ya Mommy"
"Watch this" Usually just before he jumps off something
"I Got it"
"I Did it"
"Daddy, Throw, Mommy" translation: Daddy Throw the ball to Mommy.
Bampa (Grandpa)
Mamma (Grandma)
Nena (Kenna)
AaaRina (Karina)
CC (Kacylia)
hoot (Soap)
Bambi (Kambri & Brandi)
Brandon
Rownen (Rowen)
Sunnie
Russ (Russell)
Emma
Hannah
Logan
Mel-nie (Melanie)
Ryn (Ryan)
Brynn
baby
Banket (Blanket)
Have it (means give it to me)
amen
Hi mommy
Away (Throw away)
Yeah huh
Make Cake (
cook
wash
Nigh Night.
All right
What?



His little voice makes them sound so much better then typing them.

Some funny things about Titus:
He likes to blow his nose
Titus likes to watch Full House, Toy Story, Cars & the Sprout Channel.
He jumps off his  bed at least twenty times a day.
When its time for dinner or if he wants to eat he climbs into his high chair.
He Can throw a football pretty well and can sometimes catch it.
He has started to get attached to his "Banket" and knows his bed time routine. (Story, Bath, teeth, show, Pray Cuddle mommy sleep)

I can't wait.

There are so many things that i am looking forward to lately... goals i want to accomplish, things i can't wait to leave behind at the village, and events i look forward to once we are done with school. I don't know about you but time seems to slow down when big events start getting closer, for example with the baby coming in 2 months my thoughts are "holy crap we are going to have a little girl in 2 months i have nothing ready" but at the same time my thoughts are "are we really going to have a little girl in 2 months i can't wait to see her."
but anyways... i like lists so here it goes... ( my thoughts are kind of random by the way.)
Goals:
1. I cant wait to get back in shape: being pregnant is amazing, Feeling the baby move, knowing that there is a special spirit coming, & knowing Titus is ready for his little sister makes 9 months of giving your body over to the lord to grow this little one so much more then worth it. I'm to the point now that i am getting uncomfortable most of the time. (i'm now 32 weeks)  i can't eat as much in one sitting (which is good) its getting uncomfortable to do things with Titus. I see people running and exercising, i talk about it with my friends & i see pictures of me before i got pregnant the 2nd time and i'm ready for the pounds to start coming off. I have gained more weight this time around then with Titus & I still have 2 months to go.
2.I cant wait to get all my "projects" done: I have so many things i want to do before this baby comes & i have only gotten a handful of them done. It seems like my list gets longer & longer as my due date gets closer & closer. Thankfully in the last week my nesting instinct has kicked in. I have crossed more off my list this week & started working on things that will take a long time to do.

I can't wait:
1. to not have to smell stinky smells coming from our neighbors.
2. to see my little girl. (watching baby stories on tv and babysitting is not helping)
3. for Mike to be Michael Joseph Terry DPT (DOCTOR of Physical Therapy) instead of SPT (student Physical Therapy)
4. for Titus to be out of diapers (we bought him a big boy seat so hopefully that helps him a little bit)
5. to live closer to family. i have gone back and forth on this but it will be good for our family.
