April 20th - It's my lucky day!!!

I found out last Sunday (April 20th) that I am pregnant again!! We are so excited. I went to write in my journal and looked back to see what I wrote about when I was pregnant with Vincent. I could not believe what the date was for my first entry (April 20th, 2004). I think it is very crazy that 4 years ago on April 20th I found out that I was pregnant with Vincent. I go to the doctor this Thursday to find out my due date for sure but I am guessing I will be due within a week of Vincent's 4th birthday. I have felt for a while that my second child would be a girl but I will have to wait serveral more weeks to know for sure. If I have a boy he will be all set for clothing. Over the weekend I started getting morning sickness (24/7). It should be called all day sickness. Today I went to Walgreens and got some "seabands" to wear on my wrist to help with my nausea. I look like a dork from the 80's but they are helping a little. Vincent is not sure how he feels about it. When I told him that I was going to have a baby he said, " NO! I told you that you can't have a baby." I think he is warming up to the idea though. I showed him some pictures when he was in my big belly and the day he was born. The other day he told me he wants the baby to come out so he can play with it. He will be a good big brother.

Chuck E Cheese (aka Charles Queso)

Yes, Charles Queso is Chuck E Cheese. I am impressed that everyone understood Anthony's humor. When we got home Anthony asked Vincent where Charles Queso was, he did not know who Anthony was talking about. The next day Vincent said our prayer for dinner and asked Heavenly Father to bless Charles Queso, it was really cute. Charles was nice enough to pose so I could take his picture!

We took Vincent to Chuck E Cheese as a reward for using the potty. He has seen the commercial too many times and has been asking to go. Plus I have been wanting to get some really good pizza (haha). Actually the pizza is not that bad.

Anthony and Vincent had some fun playing the racing games. I played a little skee-ball, I need some more practice though. I only got 1 ball into the 50,000 point slot out of the 5 games I played.

Vincent was very excited to say hello to Charles, he was a little star struck.

This is one of the prizes Vincent got with his tickets ( he picked all candy prizes). I remember eating these Willy Wonka Fun Dips when I was a little girl. Vincent was very resourceful and used his finger to dip in the sugar after he ate all his candy stick. Check out his green finger, it stayed like that for a few days!

Vincent thought it was so funny to watch himself on the camera screen while I was taking his picture. I get some really good shots this way, he gets very silly.

Here are a couple videos of Vincent having fun on the rides. Well I think he had fun on the monster truck but he looks a little bored on the clock ride.

EEEWWW!

This morning in church I asked Vincent to hold still so I could get an eye booger out for him. He told me he didn't have an eye booger. After I removed it for him he asked to see it. He looked at me and then asked, "can I taste it?" I just looked at him and said, "eeewww." Needless to say, Anthony and I had a good laugh!

Who is Charles Queso?

I am curious to see if anyone can guess who CHARLES QUESO is. I would love to hear everyones guess! I will be impressed if you can figure it out. Good luck!

Bubble Wrap Portraits




These are some more pictures I took for my photography class. Our teacher wanted us to take the picture inside with natural light. I pushed our dinning room table up to our sliding glass door and gave Vincent some bubble wrap to play with. He was very patient with me, I used him for my model almost every week. Vincent had so much fun playing with the bubble wrap, and it actually looks really cool in the picture. These are my favorite!

Trucks and Trains


I took these pictures for my photography class that I attended last fall. Our assignment was to take a portrait of someone with things that describe them. Vincent loves to go in our back yard and dig in the dirt with his trucks. We have a very large dirt circle in our back yard where there used to be a pool, he loves to go and dig in the dirt. The other pictures are from Old Town St Charles. There is an old train track with some really cool trains. Vincent loves trains.

Halloween 2007


Vincent actually enjoyed halloween this time around (once I was able to convince him to put his costume on). He was Buzz Lightyear and Ginger was Woody from Toy Story. We had alot of fun going to all the houses, Vincent got lots of candy and Ginger got a few dog treats! We went to visit our friends the Dahle's and Vincent's friend Lincoln was Buzz too! They thought that was pretty cool. (Notice Ginger looking at the treat I used to get her to hold still for the picture, she loves her treats!)
