Leap Day!

This week has been a trying week! Two wonderful guys in Austin, both of whom Brian was friends with lost their lives much too young! Prayers to Luke and Jake's family!! Brian and Zane have been in Austin all week to be with friends and I've been up in the cities by myself as I had to work and couldn't take any time off. I've got a lot done; mostly organizing and even some rest while they are in Austin, but it sure is quite and lonely! I'm looking forward to a fun weekend!

Zane has been a silly little boy! He's getting so tall and does not fit in any of his pants from Christmas! I can't believe how much he has grown in such a short period of time. He's already planning for his 3rd birthday-ready for his cake and everyone to sing to him. He says some funny things too....lately his new thing is "It happens" when some sort of accident occurs. He has also been very much into the Gophers! I just can't believe what a little fanatic Zane is-doesn't matter the sport; hockey, baseball, football, fishing, golf, name it; he has an outfit for it. If you don't know already, he has to change his outfits according to the sport he's playing. I haven't quite decided if this is something I need to worry about or not, but for now Brian and I have accepted that he goes through 10 outfits at day.

As for baby, he's growing so fast! I'm 25 weeks today (6 months and 1 week). He is very active and has one strong kick! He is now the size of an eggplant and anywhere from 1.5-2.5 lbs. I'll find out more details in a few weeks. I have another ultrasounds to make sure everything is ok as my doctor is worried about pre-term labor since Zane came early and I have placenta previa. Everything should be fine though! I'm excited to see him again since he'll have grown quite a bit by 28 weeks vs. when we last saw him at 20 weeks. I also have my dreaded glucose test then too!

Time is flying by...

We had a long weekend in Austin. Brian's uncle Bill passed away and Brian was one of the paul bearer so we headed down Wednesday is some pretty bad fog, and stayed until Sunday morning. While we were in Austin we had a lot of fun.

Zane played with all of his grandparents! Grandpa and Grandma Marci watched Zane while Brian and I went on a well needed date. We don't many of those being in the cities. We went to dinner at George's Pizza and went to a really good movie! We also saw John wrestle in a tournament on Saturday morning. Since the wrestling meet, Zane insists on wrestling Brian and I. He even wrestled his Grandma Carole.

Thanks to our good friends we scored some tickets to the Bruins Paint the Rink Pink game, which was a thriller. Bruins are so much fun to watch and Zane is such a good little fan. He was cheering and whistling (he even caused the man below us to plug his ears and give us a dirty look0. He's all about watching the goalie (if he plays hockey he WILL NOT be a goalie!) He also loved the Bruiser the Bear!

We also visited my mom and Dave's house they are building. It's a beautiful house. Zane was excited to dance around in the rooms. I'm sure it felt like a castle to him; big and open! He talked about the mud on the walls (from the drywall) for a few days. He thought that was pretty funny.

As for the baby, he's getting bigger and bigger! I am now 22 weeks, which means the baby is about a pound and about 11 inches (about the size of a spaghetti squash). He's really growing and so is my belly! Each day I feel a little bigger and it's getting harder to bend over! Can't wait to meet this little guy. He's very active, especially around 4am when I usually get up to go to the bathroom. I felt him kick from the outside this morning for the first time. I hope Brian and Zane will get to feel him soon. When I put Zane's hand on my tummy he refused to perform, as least we have some time! I know Zane will really get a "kick" out of feeling his baby brother. Zane has also been very opinionated in naming the little guy. As of now, Zane is still convinced his name will be Cookie Monster, however when we discuss 'real' names there are some he says No way to, and others he continues to repeat.
