Happy birthday Karl!

Okay, so it is not really his birthday. It was actually a month ago but I was still in my hiatus so now is a better time than any.

He turned the big 2. I can't believe I have already gotten to have two years with my son. He is amazing.

He is starting (finally) to talk more. Definitely behind, but I am no longer worried about it. He will try to repeat any word you ask him now and he is putting two words together also. His pediatrician says that if other people cannot understand 50% of what he says in another 4 months, we will have to start some early type of speech therapy. So we will cross that bridge when we get there.

Having a son is so different than having a daughter. He is such a momma's boy and I ~love~ it. Both the girls are Daddy's girls and I never got that kind of attention before. Now I finally feel what it's like and I freaking adore it. I feel a little bad for my husband when he tries to get some cuddle time with him and all he wants is his mommy, but Tom has gotten that from the girls for the past six years so now it's my time. And I'm eating it up.

We shaved karl's head into a mohawk and I love it. When we go out in public, we get three types of attention. Those who don't pay any attention at all. Those who look at him, and then me, and shake their heads in disgust. And then we get huge smiles from people, telling me how freaking cute he is. And I have to say the latter happens way more than anything else. I have a picture of him on my phone, so I will upload it to this blog soon so you can see me little man.

Karl has almost but given his crib completely up. He now likes to sleep in his "big boy" bed. It is a full size bed and he looks so tiny in it. I also have pictures of him sleeping in it and i'll upload those too, hopefully tonight.

The girls are all doing well. No big updates for them right now. They continue to do well in school and have transitioned into little helpers for me at home. It's great.

More later... Keep tuned in for pictures very soon!

It's hard to believe he's two! WOW! I would love to see pics of that handsome man. :) And the mama's boy thing is awesome. Rob gets annoyed sometimes when he just wants me and I am at work, but I think it's kind-of sweet especially since I can see that Elise is a total Daddy's GIRL!
