7th Anniversary

It has been seven years!  This is a photo from Saturday, July 26th, before we had our Anniversary date (I took a break from bed rest).  We went to dinner then saw, "Dark Knight," the batman movie, which we liked, even though it was dark.

24 day to deliverance!

I am so HUGE!!! I will have Jonathan take a picture later to show off. Only 24 days until the birth of our 3rd son! I have to have c-sections, so I actually get to know the birth date (August 5th). I've never been so excited to go to the hospital. Well, ask me again in a couple of weeks and I will probably be even more excited. The excitement level rises with the level of pregnancy misery. Sleeping is almost impossible! I feel like one of the guardians of the 5th element (for those of you who have seen the movie "Fifth Element"). I'm large and slow and I rock from side to side when I walk. I recently gave up on trying not to waddle.

Spencer's first Time Out

Yesterday, at the end of dinner, Spencer started pulling something out of a kitchen cabinet that he shouldn't have...
"Spencer, put it back." I said. He looked up at me with an impish grin and twinkling (yes, twinkling) eyes.
"No," he smiled even broader. I commanded him again and received the same response.
I then turned to Jonathan who was sitting next to me at the table. "Look, look at that, his cute little defiance."
Jonathan, in a now deepened and authoritative Dad voice, "Spencer, put that back." Spencer said no again, and added some defiant hand gestures. Jonathan then stood up, walked over to Spencer, and directed him to sit down against the wall. As he carried Spencer past me, he half smiled and whispered, "Will this work?" I gave him the parenting look of 'I have no idea, but good luck trying, glad its not me, hee hee.'
Jonathan sat him down, "Spencer, stay there, you're in Time Out."
Spencer sat there for a few stunned seconds then burst into tears. I had to cover my smiling mouth, it was so cute. After about a minute, he looked over at me, with his eyes still streaming giant tears.
"Come here, Spencer." I said in my most loving voice. After he walked over, I looked him in the eyes and said, "You have to put things back." He nodded his head, put his thumb in his mouth, and was consoled.
Hopefully, he'll remember next time? I wish I had taken a picture.
