The results are in...

Baby #2 (who still doesn't have a name or even a list of possible names) is a boy!

After the ultrasound, we went to Penney's and got a few little boy things.

I ordered the bedding the other day. I didn't get the mobile or the crib quilt but you get the idea.

Pizza Anyone?

At the museum last weekend, Megan really like the play food and she loves her tea set. I'd like to get her some play food, but I am waiting for a special occasion. Anyway, today she was talking about the Backyardigans and how they make pizza when I got an idea. I made "pizza" from felt and she really enjoyed playing with it. So much so, that I made a hamburger, grilled ham and cheese and an oreo. Very simple and I used felt I already had (and felt is like 10 cents a sheet!) She's 20 1/2 months and to her it is cool. Plus, the felt naturally sticks together making it easy for her to play with.

The grilled cheese is kind of pathetic.

The hamburger has the works, tomato, ketchup, mustard, lettuce, pickle, cheese and onion.

The pizza is also supreme, complete with cheese, pepperoni, sausage, onion, green pepper, and mushroom.

Back to scrap

So I completed my first layout in 3 months. I'm actually not sure when the last time I completed a layout, but I know that I haven't touched my scrapbooking things (except to move them off the counter) since Thanksgiving. I have been spending every "free" moment working on library stuff for church and I decided today I would work on my stuff.

Cleveland Children's Museum

Saturday morning we went to the Cleveland Children's Museum with Todd, Hilary and Adisyn. Megan thought it was great.

Here we are in the "Big Red Barn" exhibit (based on the book "Big Red Barn" by Margaret Wise Brown of Goodnight Moon fame.)

Every farm has a jeep of course. Megan was driving to Grandma's house.

Taking care of the chickens.

We had a minor breakdown over this exhibit. We tried to walk by it with the plan to come back later. Megan spent the next 5 minutes crying to "go swimming" and we had to convince her it wasn't a pool. She did like playing in it, but I think once she realized it wasn't a pool part of the thrill was lost...

She liked driving the bus

and having the chance to work a mouse and play with a keyboard without getting in trouble.

The last exhibit was "Sandstruction" which was a giant room filled with construction type elements and sand.

She basically wandered back and forth all over checking things out.

Adisyn was content to stay in one spot and play.

There were several other exhibits she enjoyed, but we didn't get pics. She loved the toy kitchen and made daddy a sandwich and cake. The grocery store didn't hold much appeal but I think that was during the swimming phase of the morning.

After the museum, we headed back to Grandma and Grandpa's house. Chad and I went out Saturday night and enjoyed a quiet evening.


Even at 20 months, Megan is still a cutie in the tub.

This is her new favorite way to bathe. (The bubbles are from Johnson & Johnson's new bubble bath that is safe for little kids.)

This weekend, we went to Grandma & Grandpa Gorrell's and Megan got to take a bath with Adisyn. She liked it so much, they did it a second time while Grandma babysat the next night.

Goodbye Snow! (At least for now)

We got a ridiculous amount of snow this past month. I'm not sure the exact total, but it was a record type of year. I like snow, but I didn't like the fact that it never melted. We had like 20 inches of snow on the ground for the past 20 days. It just kept coming. It would pack down to like 15 inches and then more would fall. We did get to take Megan sled "riding" (as they say in PA) once, but for the most part it was too deep to take her out.

It finally started to melt yesterday and hopefully it will disappear before we get more.
