Party Planning.

I have been working on getting things together for Hank's upcoming birthday.  Since he is such a big Thomas fan now, I have been planning on using that as a theme.  I don't think I even mentioned that to him, but ask him what type of party he is having and he says, a "Choo Choo Party!"  He talks up a storm now, and is able to put many words together.  Hard to believe he is almost two.

Weekend Date.

I was a fishing widow on Saturday, so Hank and I had a date.  I took him to a few of my favorite Lancaster shops, we had lunch at Ruby Tuesdays, and I treated him to a trip to the Thomas Store in Srasburg and we also went over to the railroad and watched the "choo choo's" and rode the little choo choo.  We had so much fun!  I love my little dates with my son.
Hank LOVES Thomas right now!

Paci's and Pudding!

Hank gave up his paci one week ago.  We were very surprised at how easy it happened.  I took it out of his mouth so we could hear what he was saying and Dada told him he was a Big Boy and didn't need it anymore and to go throw it in the trash.  He hopped off the bed and threw it away!  Now if he asks for it, we say:  "what did you do with it?" and he says:  "Trash.  Bye Bye."  He is becoming such a Big Boy!

Paci has been with us since the very Beginning!

Seven Months.

Last month.

One of his current obsessions is pudding!  He asks to eat it often, even as soon as his feet hit the floor in the morning.  I did oblige him one morning this week, as I actually had a few extra minutes.  Watch the video - it is so cute how he says pudding!

Moving Along.

Lots of progress was made this week with the house.  We had 30 loads of fill dirt come in and the grading start ( we STILL need more dirt!)  All the framing of the walls was done, and the placement of the kitchen cabinets was marked off.  The tubs have been installed, and the plumber has started his work.  All the windows and doors are in, and the concrete for the porches and garage was poured.  The stairs were also put in, and even the gas fireplace.

So much fun to be had!

Helping move rocks for a future garden.
The floors are in.
My kitchen window - I can't wait to have my kitchen!
Stairs to our guest room and my craft area.
A future reading nook?

This will keep us warm during the winter.

Hello down there!

Soon to be Home Sweet Home!

What's new on the Home Front.

This past week they finished putting the roof on and framed out the dormers, and started framing out the upstairs.  They also came in and put in our septic system.
Looking out our bedroom window - this is his side of the bed too!
Now it looks like a Cape Cod!
