Yesterday we went to our weekly after school play date at a friends house. They found a lizard. (Last week it was a pink and brown catapillar). Aydens friend was given a jar and they took their new friend "Tim" inside to play.
When it was time to go we found our friend with a frantic look on his face and his arm reaching into the couch. The lizard was no where to be found. I took our cue and gathered children carrying balin to the car. We drove home in heavy traffic and stopped for gas where we had to wait in line. 30 minutes later we finally got home. Lucas was sitting on the couch so I joined him and was telling him about the lizard lost in the couch. Balin was standing in front of me and raised his arm up. That's when I saw it. I really really wanted it to be a string. Carefully I started to lift his shirt to pull the string off. But couldn't out of fear and knowing.  I fled. Lucas looked a little closer and immediately took balin to the front porch. Gently pulling his shirt off he revealed in full reptile glory Tim. Safe and sound. A stowaway in the armpit of a two year old. Balin took a moment to process and then realized there was a lizard in his shirt. At this point he started screaming "I don't like it!"and tried to tear the front door down to get back inside. I found him in his room demanding a new shirt. Eventually he calmed down and we all went to free kids night at the local burrito place to chill. Because that's what you do when lizards take a ride on your baby. You chill.

Week 11

Here are some late pictures from the snow day we had a couple of weeks ago. The boys loved it.
The medicine I've been put on for morning sickness is really helping with the nausea, and as a side effect has taken away all of my heartburn too!The only problem is that it makes me really sleepy... like nyquil sleepy when I take it in the morning. Imay be asking to try soomething new when I go back in on the 23rd. I have a new friend who has been posting pictures of her "bump" and the corresponding fruit/vegetable that matches the size of the baby. My bump is def. there, but after two other babies not so exciting to show:-). I'll save those for later. The baby is about the size of a plum now though which is quite exciting. We are gearing up for a little mini vacation this weekend. Aydenw ill be spending spring break with his Colorado parents in Arizona! they are coming to Fredericksburg for a wedding and so we are going to meet them Saturday morning with our bundle, drop him off and then spend the day exploring the area before heading to Bastrop to spend the night. Why Bastrop? because its not here! Actually Lucas drives through it all the time when he goes to work in Laredo and says it is beautiful and I will love it. I will love sleeping in a hotel and not having to prepare/clean up meals for an entire 24 hours. We found a girl (and her mom) who is 12 who will be dog sitting for us. she is raising money for church camp, so we are happy to help sponsor her!
