My Baby is 2!

I can't believe that Cason is 2 years old today! It seems like just yesterday we had a baby. Now we have a walking talking 2 year old! Speaking of talking, he is saying all kinds of things these days. His favorite thing to say (or ask) is "What's that?". I think he asks that question at least 150 times a day. It's so cute and I love to see him interested in everything around him. Other cute things he is saying are;
mo (which means milk)
Nyrna (Myrna is babysitter)
poo poo (i know, that shouldn't be cute but at this age it is, right?)
owie (he says that one a lot becuase he is constatnly getting hurt )
He is putting 2 and even 3 words together to make sentences. We are also working on counting to 5. He has the numbers 2 and 5 down but let's us say the rest.

Cason is in to absolutly EVERYTHING. We are fixing to put the door knob protectors on our doors because he can open them now. His favorite door to open is the pantry!

He LOVES trains. Espcially Thomas the Train. He is also really into cars and trucks. Pretty much anything that boys typically like, Cason likes. Although he likes to cook. He play cooks on his play kitchen and insists on helping me in the kitchen when I am cooking dinner. I am pretty good at cooking 1 handed these days because he HAS to see everything that is going on. I keep telling him in another couple of months my belly will be too big and I won't be able to carry him around the kitchen for 30 or 40 min. every night. I don't think he cares. :)
Toby and I tried to make today special even though we both had to go to work. We woke him up 10 min. early to show him his battery powered Thomas. I ate lunch with him at his babysitters house. And we had a small cake tonight.

Cason's 2nd Birthday Party

We celebrated Cason's birthday on Saturday with family and friends. The theme was planes, trains, and automobiles because Cason loves all 3 of those things.

I decided to make his cake this year. This is only the 2nd cake I have ever made. It's not a masterpiece or anything but what's on the inside made up for the outside!

Here is Cason as we sang Happy Birthday to him. He wasn't quite sure what to think. He also had to have his daddy's help to blow out the candle but I didn't get a picture of that.

Cason enjoying a bite of his cake. It's a rainbow cake! I make it all by myself BUT had recipe help from my friends Melodie and Amanda. My mom made the icing and helped me ice it!

He had a blast opening his presents!

Cason had many special guests come to his party. One was his babysitter Myrna and her son Luke. He wasn't quite sure what to think about her being in his house at first but it took about 3 seconds before he wanted her to hold him. He wouldn't let her put him down for a good 30 min.!
His other special guests were his Grandad and Bebe, Aunt Allison, Uncle Brian, and cousins Reid and Camille, "Aunt" Beth, Eli Walker, Parker and Samantha Sloan, and Sally Loyd minus the rest of the family :)!

Here is Cason playing with Grandad, Bebe and Cousin Reid. He had an absolute blast!

(You may have noticed in these pictures that Cason has a black eye. It's his very first black eye just in time for his 2nd birthday party! He fell at his babysitters house. I swear this kid is going to cost us a fortune because of all of his accidents!)

Cason Will Have A Sister!

Yup! We are having a girl! I am preparing myself for a lifetime full of drama! The 3of went to Target tonight to buy some little girl clothes. While we were there we looked at girl toys. I realized that our daughter may like Barbies! I NEVER liked Barbies. I am hoping she will have a love for My Little Ponies or something cool like that! :)

She is totally healthy and totally perfect and Toby and I couldn't be happier. I'm not so sure about Cason. He looked at the sonogram pictures and said, "doggie?". I think he may be a little disappointed when he has a baby sister and not a doggie.

I will have to add picture of the sonogram later. We are having technical issues!

A little side note:
I could use some prayers. I am not gaining enough weight. I actually haven't gained anything at all during this pregnancy. I lost 10 lbs. and have gained one of those pounds back. When I weighed in today I hadn't gained anything. :( This is largely due to my gallbladder. I am having problems with it and have to eat a very low fat diet. It's either that or wind up having gallbladder surgery while I'm pregnant which I am not a fan of. If I don't start gaining then I could be at risk for pre-term labor. Just pray that I can eat enough to make me and the baby happy!

Just for the record. I would love to pig out right now. I am hungry ALL the time. I am just having a hard time figuring out what I can eat without making my gallbladder hurt. Thanks in advance for the prayers!
