We are really excited that we are having another boy. We have all the clothes and they can share a room. I hope they have fun playing together...eventually. The ultrasound went great. Austin didn't really care what was going on. At first he was worried we were there for him but then he realized it was my appointment. He patted my arm and said "It's ok Mommy." Then when we saw the baby he just stared at the screen. The baby kept his little hand up near his face. I wonder if he will be a binki baby. When we left he said "Thank you Much." I can't wait to see my new baby boy. We are leaning towards the name Bennett William Kennington.
This is your chance to get your final guesses in before I get my ultrasound. I go in on January 20th in the morning. I'll keep everyone posted. I am so excited. I hope the baby isn't shy and we can find out the gender.
His face looks shiny because I put lotion on it right before bed.
It finally happened. Austin started trying to climb out of his crib. I was hoping to keep him in there as long as I could but the time has come and he is ready. We have a crib that converts into a toddler bed. We asked Austin if he wanted to sleep in his crib or a big boy bed and he excitedly told us a big boy bed like Gavin. So we switched the bed in the morning. For his nap he cried for an hour and then fell asleep on the floor. The next day he stayed quiet in his room for two hours but never slept and then today he played for a little bit then slept in his bed for his nap. He has been doing great at night. After we read books and say a prayer he climbs in without a fuss and lays down. Then he doesn't get out. He has been sleeping in longer too. I don't think it could be going any smoother. And thanks again Patty for the beautiful quilt and Rachel for the caterpillar. Austin loves them both.
This year we were fortunate enough to be able to drive to Texas to see my whole family. It was a great visit. We went to the stock yard and we also went to Babes. We did some shopping and of course had a blast singing Christmas carols and playing a ton of games. Jeff fixed just about everyone's computer. We were sad to leave but we got a treat on the way home. We got to stay with our friends from college, Rob and Lisa. They live just north of Nashville. We actually stayed with them on the way down to Texas and on the way back. They smoked us in hand and foot and we had a lot of fun catching up with them. Austin still asks about everyone. I think he misses playing with his cousins. My sister Tiffany took all these pictures. I forgot my camera in Indiana so I just used some of the pictures she took. If you want to see more pictures from Christmas you can look at Dane, Alycia, Tiff and Nay's blogs. There are a lot of pictures and I don't know if it will all fit on one post so you may need to hit the previous post button.

He wouldn't go to sleep until we let him have the car in his bed with him.
A beautiful quilt from my Mom. She used fabrics with a vintage theme.
An S-wave curler from Jeff.
Austin loved his Thomas shirt from Aunt Carrie. He wanted to wear it over his pajamas.
Austin got a hold of a blue marker. It took quite a bit of scrubbing to get off.
