Today is our fifth wedding anniversary. Marrying Spencer was the best decision I have ever made. In the past five years we have had one son and are expecting our second. We have lived in four states (California, Hawaii, Washington, Utah) and seven different apartments. I received my bachelor's degree and Spencer has gone from working full time to being back in school. We have made a lot of good friends, discovered new restaurants, ran a half marathon, purchased 'grown-up' furniture, spent money and saved money. Life is good because of him.

Over the last few holiday seasons I have been looking for Christmas stockings. I had a general idea of what I wanted, but didn't want to spend the money to get them. When I came across these gems at Cost Plus World Market I couldn't pass them up; especially at eight and ten bucks a pop!

I can't believe I only have nine more weeks until our little guy is supposed to arrive. It has gone by so quickly. His kicks have become much more forceful, some are quite painful actually. I don't remember Van kicking this hard.
Van loves to give the baby hugs and kisses. He's very sweet and it melts my heart every time I hear him say, "I wuv you baby." Earlier this week he felt the baby move for the first time. His bewildered reaction was too funny.

The soother has been snipped. It was definitely time. When Van saw it he thought that it was broken. He was a bit freaked out by it actually. He didn't want to use it or even hold it and was convinced that his daddy would be able to fix it.
Sleep since the cut has been interesting. Last night he cried for a good 30 minutes before falling asleep. Today during nap he was up for an hour and a half before finally falling asleep. Tonight, however, there were no tears.
We put his soother in a special box on his dresser. He's giving it to the soother fairy, who is going to come tonight and leave him a special toy. Will this help his grieving? I don't know. But I do know that with time he'll be okay. He's becoming a big boy.
