Bub woke up at 4 am asking. 'Is the party today?' Yes, Bub, in 6 hours!
There was no way we were going to get him to nap after all the fun of the party but at 6 pm he's already crashed. I'm going to have to wake him at some point for dinner, but he looks so peaceful.

Chris is reading Bub a book about prehistoric times. I think they are talking about evolution and I hear Chris explain that we all came from an ancient mammal. (Sorry, Creationists, it's true.) And Bub asks,
Did he poop us out???
Hahahahaha! You don't really need to hear Chris's explaination, do you?

It just took my breath away! Not because it was so big, but because it was so clearly a jab from my little person. I've only felt squiggles thus far so this got my attention. Pretty soon they'll be poking at each other, one from the outside and the other from the inside. I can't wait!

Today is Chris's birthday and while none of us, least of all Chris, were feeling on the top of our game we still had a nice celebration to mark the day. We all gathered around the cake and blueberry pie and as we were putting in the candles, Chris and I discussed that maybe since he's sick he shouldn't blow out the candles. Well, that was a waste of breath! Bub leaned right in after the song and blew them all out! He then proceeded to devour his slice, asked to share mine and licked the server clean. With no more frosting to dispatch, he shouted, "BEST BIRTHDAY EVER!" and held up his creamy paw for a high five.
After a lot of bouncing around and a dunk in the tub, we were trying to wind down in Bub's room. We were talking about how my belly was going to get very big to give the baby room to grow and that when baby is all grown, it will come out and be born.
"Does the baby come out of your mouth?"
It was so precious. (I didn't let him think the baby comes out of my mouth but I didn't really elaborate, either.)
I heard the baby's heartbeat for the first time this morning! My little tenant was very cooperative and the midwife was immediately able to find him. Yup, we've got another person convinced that we have a little man in there! The heartbeat was 135 which corroborates the "Angle of the Dangle" theory as observed in our last ultrasound.
My next appointment is on November 16th and that's for the full anatomy scan which, if baby continues to be a cooperative little nugget, should tell us about, er, the anatomy in question.

Bub is awake at 10pm so I decide to offer that instead of sitting in the rocking chair all night that he might sleep in his Big Boy Bed (BBB). BBB is really just the twin mattress on the floor because we have all been too sick to bring up the frame. I'm hoping the thrill is just enough incentive for him to stay in bed and not so exciting that it keeps him awake.
Current status of experiment: FAIL. Bub is singing to Kitty and I just heard little footprints hit the hardwood. That "pitter-patter of little feet" everyone talks about is one of the scariest sounds to a sleepy parent.
Bub just scampered into my room to tell me "It's so MUCH FUN to be AWAKE!"

Bub has been so sick. He had a cold that turned to an ear infection that turned into croup that turned into walking pneumonia. We are into the third week of his illness. It's so sad to see our energetic little man be too tired to play or to have to tell him that he can't bounce around so much on the chance that he's feeling well.
Through all of the interrupted sleep, coughing fits, crying and tantrums Kitty has been the best little nurse. She has taken to sleeping in his room all night. She's there right now, watching over Bub.

Bub is going to be a big brother. The Littlest Wrona is due on April 13th, right in time for our 5 year wedding anniversary.
Not a bad five year plan!

Bub and I visited Starbucks over the weekend as reward to us both for the swift purchase of a mattress with zero tears by any involved party.
While slurping the whipped cream from his hot chocolate, Bub received the compliment that he is the cutest human. So, we've got that going for us now. I think it will look great on his C.V.
