Use Your Words

I've been telling Blake to "use her words" to tell me what she wants instead of pointing, grunting, or making indecipherable noises. When I say that, this is what she does:
She sticks her arms out and wiggles her hands all around! It makes me laugh!! I guess she thinks I'm saying "use your hands". Ha ha!
She also loves lotions and all things like that. I accidentally left the baby powder open in her room and this is part of what I found: Blake covered waist-down in white powder plus a pile on the ground where she was sitting. She loved rubbing it in and now her room smells extra-good! Oh, toddlers!

First Sonogram

This morning we went to my first sonogram appointment. We brought Blake with us, too. Blake insisted on climbing up on the table to sit beside me. When the heartbeat was played aloud, she started bouncing up and down like she does to mean giddy-up for riding a horse! It was funny.
Everything is good with the baby. 2.3 cm long, right at 9 weeks today (which is what I thought, too.) The due date is Feb. 18th, but I am supposed to deliver around 38 weeks again for my blood pressure. I go back in 2 weeks for my first full OB appt.

Happy Friday! (Blake is now 16 months old, as of Monday.) We had to run to Target to buy more summer sandals after the doctor appt. since she already grew out of the size 5s I bought her this summer! She's getting so big!

Fourth of July weekend

We spend the holiday weekend at the lake with lots of family! We had a mini-reunion on the McLane side with just a few missing. Blake had lots of fun with everybody, and became alot more comfortable in the water.
She loved playing with all her cousins. Here eating their daily popsicles are Max, Blake, and Santi.
On Saturday we had the biggest crowd of the weekend, and all 5 of the great-grandkids got to play together! The funniest part was when Colby whispered to his momma that he had a secret that "Brent was in love with Blake!" ha ha! (Santiago 17 months, Brent almost 3, Blake almost 16 months, Colby 5 years and Max 2 years.)
