What we've been up to

Well, I am 22 weeks going on 23 and feeling great! I need to be doing more things like: getting Joe's room painted and cleaned out, making appointments, Christmas shopping, birthday planning, and birthday shopping when I am feeling so good and semi small. I don't want to happen what happened when I was pregnant with Joe and have to get more Christmas gifts at the last minute and have contractions while shopping. Yuck!! I am really trying to spend a lot of time with Joseph before the next baby comes. I am really looking forward to the next one, but I am really enjoying Joseph so much right now. We are trying to get to a lot of parks since it has been some nice weather, but we would love for a cool front to come in. I want to take him to a pumpkin patch to get pictures, but what I want to dress him in he would sweat bullets.
We have started ladies bible class so Joseph gets to see Mark and June during that time. Before we leave, I say "lets go to class and you get to see Mark and June", and boom, he is at the door saying "Mark, Mark, Mark." He loves that little guy.
We are getting ready and thinking a lot about Halloween. I can't decide what he should be. It is either going to be a Farmer or a Yell leader (thanks Meghan for the great idea).
Joseph is starting to say two word phrases which has been really cute. He is really into "reading" to himself. When we go to read books at nap and bed time, he will grab a book, place it in his lap and start mumbling and doing motions that Jeff and I do for those certain pages. Very entertaining. He is almost 2, and I have to say the 'terrible 2's' hasn't really kicked in. He says 'no' a lot!! I've told people, he doesn't usually do it out of defiance, but it is more like a question or response. For instance, when we give him something, he will say,"thank you, " we reply, "your welcome," which is concluded with him saying, "no." We can't really figure it out. I think he is going to be really shy like Jeff and I both were. He doesn't really care for people to talk to him or anything. I was just like that. Just let me be...I am fine sitting here not having a conversation. Joseph is a lot like that. When it's his cousins, he is pretty much right there in the middle, but anyone or anywhere else he is right by me. This is where 'no' comes into play a lot. People say "hi" he replies, "no."
Just wanted to give everyone a little update (Thanks Stacey and dad for the motivation.) Sorry it has been so long.
Oh, my doctor does want to do a follow-up ultrasound at 28 weeks to keep an eye on the fluid cyst. She said my triple screen came back good, so we should be in good shape, but I am more than happy to get another ultrasound...more pictures of my William, or Ethan or Christian ;-) (Just some names that we are interested in).

Insanely warm October day at the park.

(Sorry for the insane close up, but he grabbed the camera as soon as I snapped it.)

Notice the non-matching pj's? I need to do what Courtney did on her blog. I need to take a picture of when Jeff gets him dressed, compared to when I get him dressed. Jeff says this matched because they were both green with dinosaurs. ;-) Love you babe!

He is SO BIG! And I absolutely love that he says "no" when people say "hi"! That is hilarious! What a cute little man :)
