Wow, our lives have been crazy. Charlotte Christina was born on Monday, December 12, at 7:55 am. She is just the sweetest and we feel so blessed. James and I are thankful to have grandma here helping out with the house and kiddos because I'm not sure how we could have done it by ourselves. I ended up having a c-section and the recovery is a little better than last time but it's still hard not being able to do everything. Anderson is slowly adjusting but really doesn't understand but I'm sure it won't be long before he wants to help out.

We are enjoying the holiday season and have been trying to squeeze as much fun into our weekends as we can before baby #2 comes. Last weekend we enjoyed snack with Santa at the Children's Museum and James's work holiday party at the zoo. Tonight we enjoyed Family Holiday night at Anderson's school. This is our last weekend before baby and I'm really hoping that our baby girl chooses to make her appearance into the world or else I'm scheduled for a c-section on Monday. I would rather not go through that again so please keep your fingers crossed!

Really, I can't believe that I let a month slide by without a blog post. Sorry! We've been busy preparing for baby number two, decorating for Christmas, and just busy in general. James has had quite the honey do list and has almost finished everything. I guess you would say that I've been nesting the past month. I'm officially full term on Tuesday and baby C. could be here sometime in the next few weeks (really anytime but I'm guessing she'll want to cook a bit longer).
Thanksgiving was spent with friends here in Denver and it was just nice having daddy around and not having to work. Anderson really enjoyed all of our outings over the long weekend. He's talking up a storm and is now repeating about everything we say. Needless to say, he makes us laugh all the time! He's a funny guy and it's fun to see his little personality explode. We just love him to pieces. I'm a bit nervous about the transition to two children. Right now Anderson is my little bud and it's going to be hard on both of us. We'll survive the transition as long as I survive the first month!

We have really had the perfect weather lately and then we were surprised with some snow today! It was nice to be inside today but we are happy it will get warm again. We haven't been up to much but we have realized that we have A LOT to do before baby number 2 is born. I recently joined Pinterest and have so many ideas for the kids' rooms that we are going to work on the next few weekends. It's funny because with our first baby we were really prepared and now we find ourselves asking, "Um, what does a newborn need?"
Anderson might be getting a little inkling that something is going to happen. We bought a book about a new baby sister and he can identify everyone in the book. When I ask him where his baby sister is he points to my belly. He is getting to be such a big boy. I recently bought him a baby Elmo potty book too. One night after bath while we were doing our usual run around the house with animal towels on, he starting going potty on the floor. We quickly put him on the toilet and he finished. Now it has become part of our nightly routine after bath and most of the time he goes! I also got him to go once today during the day. I'm really not sure he's quite ready but it's a start. We love our big boy!

We had such a great weekend spending time together as a family. Things have been very busy around here and it was nice to take some time to do some fun fall outside activities. The weather has been absolutely gorgeous but we may not have anymore 70's after today.
|Beautiful fall day!|
|He's always doing something silly!|
|Dressing up is one of Anderson's favorite things to do.|

|The jumping castles were a hit!|
|Such a boy!|
