Mommy and William

I am 33 weeks in these picture and William is one month away from turning 3.  There are so many big changes going on  lately and I have a feeling that things aren't slowing down any time soon.  I am so thankful for each of the small moments I can share with William before Westin arrives.  I just hope there is enough of me to give them both all the love they deserve.

Westin's Nursery

Westin's nursery is complete.  Well, almost we just need him to arrive.  I still have about 5 weeks left until he is projected to be born.  We are all so excited to meet him and I am finally realizing that my house will never be quiet again.  I always said that I was made to raise boys and now I will actually get to find out if that was all talk or actually true.  All I know is that I am excited to find out.

First Day of Preschool

William went to pre-school for the first time today.  No tears were shed by William - a few by Mom of course.  He will be going two days a week and this seems to be just fine with him.  He said he had fun and he is ready to go back.  The teacher's first words about him were that he talks a lot :)  He is just growing up so fast and I sure wish I could find a way to slow it all down.  

His cast came off last Friday and life is much better for all of us.  The doctor was able to compare the x-rays and pinpoint where the fracture had been.  She said it now appears to be completely healed and he is now good to go.  He hasn't slowed down since he got it removed - we are glad to have our active William back.

July 2010

William started off the month of July with all kinds of swimming and outdoor activities.  Unfortunately, his cast has slowed him down a bit and now we are becoming more creative with our outings.  The train ride at Landa, family movie watching, ice cream and eating at his favorite restaurants are some of the ideas we have been trying out since the cast arrived.  He is now able to walk with the cast and this has made things a little better.  He still asks each day if he can get it off.  Luckily, it will be taken off on Aug. 13th.  He is a trooper and we are doing everything we can to help him through this frustration.
