my latest project

I've been planning on painting jungle scenes on Oliver's bedroom walls since we moved in. The walls are bright yellow with dark green trim. I actually started on it a few days ago with a butterfly a caterpillar and a couple of fern-like plants. Yesterday I finished the first (very small) tree. I think they turned out ok. The next step will be to put in the pond/lagoon with the crocodile in it. maybe some dragonflies and some cattails...I haven't decided. This is going to go on the wall beneath the bookshelves. There will eventually be an elephant and a couple of giraffes, probably a monkey, maybe a toucan or two. Of course there's no telling how long this is going to take. I barely have time to do anything. I worked on what I've done already for a little while every day before going to work. Mabye if I keep doing that it can be done before August. I hope so!

Oliver loves playing ball!

Action shot! Oliver loves getting out all the balls and throwing them around. He has a whole bucket of them (see in the background) that are all different sizes. His favorite are the tennis balls, though. They are small enough for him to carry two at a time, which he often does. He'll say "ball" and then throw it. His aim isn't that good yet so sometimes he hits us. Luckily he can't throw very hard so it doesn't hurt. Anyway, it's super cute!

other preggies...

Since I've been pregnant I have found out that several of the bloggers that I read regularly are also pregnant. Here they are:

Robyn 21 weeks, baby #2
Katherine and Claire's mommy, 6 weeks, baby #3 (K&C are twins)
Adventure's in Babywearing, 9 weeks (ish), baby #4

Also, Laura, who I know from Myspace is due March 6th (?) for baby #1. (although my guess is Feb 23 at 6:22pm) I'd link, but her profile is private so it wouldn't do any good.

So hurray for all of us and our little "buns"!!!

How big is your baby? Well compare it to food! This is kinda cute, there's a food for the baby's size every week. I have the link to 14 weeks which is what the dr said ours is.

We get to have our ultrasound (3D!!) on March 3rd. I'm so excited that I can hardly stand it!!!!!! Hopefully everything will be where it's supposed to be and growing properly. We will be finding out if it's a boy or girl if s/he isn't shy, too. (Not that it matters, but it'll be easier to pick out a name)

We got to hear the heartbeat again yesterday. Cute little heartbeat. It made both of us cry but Oliver just looked confused. Oh well, he'll get it eventually.

a few new words...

Oliver now says:

peas (he actually says pea babies)

In other news, I think I ate a bug. I was eating my cereal and there was something bitter so I wiped it on my hand. I didn't see a bug but there was blood on my hand ...GROSSSSSSSS!

Why does Oliver always take his shoes off in the car? EVERY time we go out I end up putting his shoes back on him when we get where we're going. It's not like he has nothing else to do. He has tons of toys in the seat with him! WHYYYYYYYYYY!?
