Pass the Salad please

We've been so lucky to have a good little veggie eater that I thought it might be a fun project to plant a garden this year. We seem to have a huge population of "bunnies" in our yard though so we had to get a little creative.

Katen and I picked out some large containers and hauled a bunch of soil onto our back deck to get the project started. I drilled some drainage holes in the tubs and we were ready to plant.

We're hoping to have yellow squash, two kinds of bell peppers, spinach, lettuce, blueberries, carrots, green onions, beans, two kinds of tomatoes and watermelon.

So far things are looking pretty good. We have a few sprouts...

Spinach Squash

Everything else is just tiny little sprouts... except for the watermelon. No sign of watermelon. Maybe it's a little slow.

Here's the whole "garden."


Daddy is bringing cookies to work tomorrow. Do you know what that means?

Katen is going to be a BIG SISTER! :)

I am almost 13wks along and baby #2 is due on November 25th or sooner.
Our OB's are concerned about another premature birth so I will be taking weekly injections in hopes of keeping the baby safely tucked in there until at least 36weeks.

...And with 75-80% accuracy, it looks like our final baby will be another little girl. We'll take another peek at about 20wks to confirm that.

Oh and I didn't bake the cookies so they're safe to eat. I only decorated them. Ha!

Spring finally...

We've been having a lot of fun lately. Today we picked up a little slide that I found on craigslist for Katen. So far she's have a great time with it. I'd been looking for one for a while because she looooves the slides at the park. She also mowed the lawn with me today. I wore her on my back in her carrier and she thought it was the funniest thing ever. It's nice to finally trade the snowblower for the lawn mower.

Below are a few videos. Katen's begun to "talk" on the phone and her calls are very business-like. She's also quite the dancing fool and has even started to twirl herself in circles until she's completely dizzy. I'm not sure why that's fun but she does it a lot. Crazy kid!

She's built quite a vocabulary both verbally and through sign language as well. You'll see her demonstrate just a few of her signs. Enjoy!
