Baby, you're out of this world!



I made some art for the kiddos today. I hope they will both enjoy my impression of our solar system. It's a knock off of a Land of Nod piece. Look honey! I saved you $150!

Harvard Natural History Museum

Yesterday we had the most wonderful day with Bub.  We visited the Natural History Museum!

Four years ago, when I was hefting around the big belly that was Bub, I was taking a course in the museum and while walking through the exhibit halls, I promised said belly that I would someday bring him back.  It took a while, and having a new big belly as a reminder of my promise, but we made the visit.

Bub was exceptionally well-behaved and we were so very proud of him.  He loved the fossils!  Here is the kronosaurus.


 But nothing quite compared to the gift shop and the many awesome dino toys!  He chose a new giganotasauraus and she visited the rest of the museum with us.


This is her mountain home: a meteor!




 Perhaps the most significant lesson I've learned about being a parent is that you need to adjust your expectations.  If I wanted to get back to the mineral hall, I would be back with a 3 year old and a fierce, plastic toy.  Meh, it works for me!

3D/4D Ultrasound at 29 weeks

This is what is going on from the outside at 29 weeks.



While THIS is what is going on INSIDE!


Because nothing that ever happens to me is without some element of drama, this ultrasound appointment was no different.  Let's just say, this was a "recreational" appointment in that it was through a private company and we had to pay for the service.  And it wasn't that cheap.  Therefore, I expected some deliciously posh experience awaiting us when we got into Goldenview Ultrasound in Brookline.  Errrrr, OPPOSITE!

The office was tiny and not so posh.  I immediately registered that it was also freezing.  Like, arctic.  Like, not much warmer than the 10 degree weather that was blowing outside.  Apparently, the heat was broken!!  And I got to yank up my shirt and have cold gel dumped on my big belly!  One would think that my appointment would have been rescheduled or discounted in some way.  One would be wrong.

I got over my discomfort when I saw this little face on the screen.  Here are some of the wonderful images of  baby.









Baby is seen snuggling up against the placenta and the umbilical cord is wrapped up on his belly.  It was so magical to see his face.  I think that he looks just like Bub!  What do you think?

Choreographed Near Drowning



I think that's what this swim class is called. It's very comical to see Bub's big grin bobbing and dunking into the water.

Number Art



Bub shows off his creative math skills in this piece of preschool art. I was impressed that he was the only child write his own name.

Liam and his school friend, Yuki.



Have you ever seen a sweeter picture. I love that he has such a nice friend.

I'm smiling because this little face is sleeping!



3 is hard! We've had enough battles in the past 24 hours to last me through his teenage years, complete with 'I don't love you' taunts and door slamming.

Nature is cruel and clever to package that much toddler fury in such an adorable package.

Dinosaur Picnic



Here is Mama Tarbosaurus about to enjoy some dinosaur pizza and dinosaur turkey.

Somehow Bub is wise to the idea of running away from home


This is the first he's mentioned it to me but I did over hear him conspiring with his kitties the other night.

He accused me of being bossy and said he was running away. I asked where he was going to go! He said his friend Caitlin's house. I assured him her Mama would be equally bossy.

Not so cute anymore

I thought it was just the most adorable thing when Bub started peeing standing up.  Something about him acting like a little man and that cute bum. . . . and then I started finding pee every where.  It's not so cute anymore!

Little brothers can't compete with TV.



Bump was going nuts inside of me so I called Bub over to feel the kicks. Without breaking eye contact with the TV he put his hand on my belly for 2 seconds and fled back his seat.  'I felt it already!'

Sigh.

Here's a wonderful drawing Bub did today of a brachiasaurus.  That's the big red one. The black drawing is a T-Rex. Note that he has the correct number of fingers on each hand. Talented boy!

We're excited for 2013!


2013 is the year we welcome a new Wrona into the house and we're so excited!  Here are Bub and Chris playing wild boy games.  It won't be long until it will be a group of three.
