Tuesday Links

1. It has been a long while since I blogged and I wrote on Wednesday, that I was going to blog this weekend and then the weekend flew by and I never got around to it. So I am using this time to say hi and tell you a few things that have been going on around here.

2. We took the binky away from Zane except for nap time and at night {of course}. It has helped a whole heck of a lot with him starting to babble a lot more! He still isn't really talking but he's now starting to mimic us a whole lot more... which is good because he is going to be 20 months old on Saturday and only really says momma & dadda. I really don't want him to have to start going to speech classes, which is what his doctor wants him to do soon if he doesn't start talking more ASAP!

3. James and I decided that it is time for another baby so we have started to try to have another one. We are very excited and hopeful that it will happen quickly so that we will have a 2012 baby. So pray for us to be blessed with another beautiful baby.

4. I am very excited that One Tree Hill is back on again but sad that it is in its last season. It's a great show and I have enjoyed watching them grow & change throughout the show.

5. We bought all the Harry Potter movies over Christmas break and watched them all twice and I decided to start reading the books because I loved the movies so much. I also have a little bit of a crush on Rupert Grint who plays Ron Weasley. He's just too cute.

6. We redid our den downstairs {it's connected to our living room with french doors that we never close} over Christmas and turned it into a playroom for Zane because our living room was becoming overwhelmed with toys and books and all things kid. So we decided we needed make some more room since we knew he'd be getting a ton more for Christmas. We sold our big desk and elliptical machine and went to Ikea and bought a new desk, 2 DVD wall shelves and a shelving system to hold Zane's toys. It opened up the room so much and has given him so much more room to play.

7. I am looking for a white with black polka dots dress and have been for a very long time and cannot find one anywhere! But here are a few that I kind of like but aren't exactly what I am looking for. You can see them here, here and here.

So basically that's what has been going on in my life and why I've been out of commission for so long. I hope you are all doing well. I know I have lost some of my followers over the last few days which makes me sad but I know it's because I haven't been posting at all. I have missed all of you and will be returning to my regularly scheduled program soon! :)

LOVE Harry Potter! especially the books...def have a sweet spot for Rupert/Ron.

We are also having the same problem with our son and speech. At 12 months he only said Dada so they wanted us to see someone. Now he is 21 months and says Mama, Dada, Doggy, Kitty, and Bye. I still feel like he is a little behind but I guess boys take longer to talk. We have started taking away the Paci as well and he has been doing a lot more babbling so I'm hoping that leads to both of our sons talking more :)

Good Luck on the baby makin' :)
