So we're sitting at 23 weeks now in this pregnancy, and so far the second trimester has been sweet and easy. I'm starting to feel big and still have oh about four months to go, so we'll see how that goes. But otherwise, things couldn't be better. We are closing in on some names for the little guy and still ask ourselves, "can you believe we're going to have two boys running around here soon?"
And this one, he is becoming more of a little boy everyday. At 2 years old, he is a delight, truly. So often I look at him and think, gosh he's changing again. His little chubby body is growing taller and leaner, and his words are turning into sentences, questions, and even jokes. He loves being outside, trucks of all kinds, books, and having us tell him stories. He's starting to become more interested in other children and I'm trying to plan more play dates and outings to give him opportunities to practice his new social skills. And to my delight, we were out last week and the waiter said, "wow, you're son looks just like you." Ok, I never get that, but it was nice, even if only in a stanger's eyes, I'll take it.
And this random bit: behold a picture of our dinner last night, which is one of my favorites: salad with grilled steak and radishes (you have to have the radishes on the side) courtesy of my dad's garden. So easy and so, so good. Just thought I would mention it in case you are looking for dinner ideas.
