wow, I’m so sorry if you actually follow my blog or at least would want to.  I must have forgotten I had one or something….

Anyway, I’ll try to remember what’s happened in the past few months 😉

On November 2nd, Jason turned 2.  We didn’t have a party or anything because he’s still probably too young to notice – maybe next year.  I made a “2” out of a label and stuck it to the tie on his tie shirt and voila!  we have a special “I’m 2” shirt to wear.  I brought (not nearly enough) cupcakes to choir rehearsal and had everyone sing happy birthday to him and let him blow out a candle with the number “2” on it.  Then I had the brilliant idea of letting him lick the frosting off the candle.  Yeah, that would be a mom fail, he bit it and I had to fish the wax out of his mouth in front of the whole choir.  Other than that, I think he had a pretty good birthday.

On a nice day, we decided to rake up some leaves and let Jason have a good old time.  He liked jumping in them, but he really liked being thrown into them and pushed into them while driving his car.  In one of the pictures you can see my belly…I’m about 18 weeks along here..


We had our anatomy scan right before Thanksgiving and found out we are having another boy.  Jason was really well behaved during the ultrasound and we told him “there’s  your little brother”  He pointed to the little screen the tech was using and said “little brother” then pointed to the big screen we were watching and said “big brother”.  He says “baby” when he sees the ultrasound pictures too but I’m still not sure how much he understands.

We had Thanksgiving dinner with the Chastains and I was bringing my chocolate chip cookies so I decided to announce the gender as follows:

Lately, his favorite pastime has been watching videos of funny kitties on YouTube.  It’s pretty much part of our morning routine at this point.  Have breakfast, watch kitties, continue with our day.  At least it gives me time to get my computer stuff done (unfortunately, that doesn’t include keeping up with my blog, but I digress…).

Jason got his first Christmas present from his Grandma and Grandpa Bender and we decided to go ahead and let him have it now.  We put the chairs in a row and Jason started sorting his duplos according to color…he’s so smart!  We won’t keep it there, but he seemed to like watching the game from his very own seat 🙂

Dan took Jason to Hanging of the Greens at church (I had to work).  He looks like he had a good time eating and taking part in putting the nativity scene together.

    Hey, I’m actually using my poor neglected blog!  Figured it was the best place to review my latest health experiment. After running my first half-marathon, I was looking for something else to do and honestly get a good break from running after training for 6 months.  I knew my diet was a hot mess so […]

    Once we got all the furniture moved in, we just had to touch up the paint, put up pictures, valences and a wall decal and Jason’s room was done! Nothing much else happened in January until the end when we decided it was time to potty train Jason.  A lot of my friends have had […]

    ok, let me try to remember what happened in December… December 1st – I reached the halfway point in my pregnancy! Not much really!  The main thing we did was gather and plan stuff for Jason’s big boy room.  We decided to take advantage of Dan’s parents visiting for Christmas and plan on moving the […]

    In October we went to the Applejack Pumpkin Patch for the first time.  We usually get our pumpkins at church and don’t bother with pumpkin patches but since Jason is old enough to enjoy it, we decided to make the trip.  They had a cute measuring thing there but he wasn’t having it….until we gave […]

    August was pretty eventful – September was not!  September may be the reason for my blogging break….nothing much happened….like, at all. I did have my first ultrasound though and have the first picture of Baby Bender #2. Everything looks good so far!  I’ve been more tired and nauseous this time around but I think that’s […]

    Sorry, I’ve been a bad blogger again.  It’s terrible that I keep doing this and I really need to get better at keeping stuff updated.  Anyway,  here’s what happend in August. The month started off pretty exciting.  On August 5, I got this: What?  You don’t see the line?  I wasn’t too convinced either and […]

      As I attempted to recall what happened in July only one word came to mind: HOT! It’s hard to remember what happends when your brain is melted.  It was over 100 most days in July.  I still ran but I had to move it indoor so I didn’t die.  It’s boring running on the […]

    I have no idea what happend…I wrote an entire post for June and it’s gone.  I think maybe I’m the problem with blogging not the sites.  :::repeated headdesks::: Guess I’ll just charge ahead and keep wasting my time on this fruitless pursuit June: June started with Vacation Bible School.  This year I did the Science […]

    And now to catch up where I left off! May was a great month.  As the weather warmed up, Jason discovered corn-on-the-cob: Which followed learning quickly how to say “mmm, corn” On May 7th, I participated in the Girls on the Run Mother’s Day 5K. I had been training since February and the week before […]
