We had our ultrasound two weeks ago and we were told it was going to be a GIRL, but I had serious doubts. Jeremy thinks that I was just upset that he had guessed right both times and I had guessed wrong both times, but really it was because this pregnancy has been SO different than it was with Karli. But we went back in for another ultrasound because of some concerns about the baby and she is definately a girl! The baby is healthy and the concerns were just "soft markers" for possible problems but they don't think anything is actually wrong; they just wanted to freak out her mom for a few weeks. We are so excited! Now here are some new pictures of Karli.

Poor baby was sick and fell asleep in the middle of her favorite movie.

Karli got new sunglasses after she kept stealing her moms she LOVES them and wants them on any time we go out side. Ridiculously cute!

Karli playing on the tramp with her cousins and her Grandpa Quade

Karli kept getting her special new sunglasses stolen by her cousin "tiny baby lydia" what a cute little bully.

The best part about the library is the poles Karli gets to climb up and slide down. It's like a playground that has books to read. Basically the best thing ever!

Long Time No Blog

Well, it has been awhile since we've blogged and I will do a little bit of catch up with the pictures and videos, but first we have exciting news: We are expecting baby #2!!! We are VERY excited and the baby is due January 16th; we don't know what 'color' of baby it is yet but we should be finding out in the next few weeks and I'll get it posted when we know. I was feeling pretty sick but I am doing much better now thank goodness! Now on to the pictures of our darling girl:

Karli went to a fun little play place with her cousins in Colorado in MayWe got Winnie the Pooh fabric to make a pillowcase for Karli's new pillow...but she wouldn't really let go of it for a few days; here she is wearing it like a shawl or something. Cute kid!

Karli got to ride the Merry-go-Round with Daddy, and now anytime she sees it in the mall she gets REALLY excited!

Karli got to make cookies with her Grandma Schoonie when we went there over the 4th of July; what a nice treat with Grandma!!!

Karli LOVES to read; she reads (or gets read) DOZENS of books everyday (generally the same 5-10 books all day...not at ALL annoying to the reader lol) This time she was reading to herself at the doctors office.

Karli went to her first movie...(well the first one that she had any idea she was at) Winnie the Pooh and she LOVED it! Her dad also got her treats which made the whole experience that much better!

Karil loves to play with her cousins in this video they had just got back from swimming and were waiting for dinner, so why not run around like crazy girls right?

I FINALLY got Karli singing on camera she usually sings more of it but the blanket is pretty distracting lol! Sorry that it's sideways but it's so worth it.

Happy Easter!!! We tried to explain Easter to Karli yesterday while we were dying eggs. She seemed to understand that a Bunny would bring her treats and so she found her stuffed bunny (who she named Hop) and decided that she would sleep with him that night. I figured she heard the words "Bunny" and "Treat" and thought she better keep her bunny close so that she didn't miss out on any treats. The videos show the path of jelly beans or "treats" leading to her pile of stuff, and then her finding eggs hid around the living room. I think it's safe to say that she is a pretty big fan of Easter!!!

Karli is trying to share her treats with "hop"

Looking for eggs

Trying a peep

Oh and she likes it (big surprise)

Toilet "Uh-oh"

Karli came up to me this morning with a very distressed look on her face saying, "Uh oh!" Yeah that's never a good sign with a toddler. She said, "han" meaning "give me your hand and I will show you" I followed her to the bathroom. This is what I found... Lovely. I'm glad that she is showing and interest in the bathroom which means that she might be interested in potty traing in a few months, but this is not exactly what I had in mind.

Well at least she is trying to help clean up :)

Jiggle and Jam

Karli and I go to the library at least once a week and do the activities they have there. This was a session called "Jiggle and Jam" where the kids dance and sing and get to play with instruments. We both love it!

Play Time

Karli loves to play outside! At least once a day she brings me her shoes and says "alk" which means walk. She also loves to play in our backyard that we fixed up in the fall and now has her little playset out there; she spends a good amount of time out there either by herself or with her friends the neighborhood girls. These are some pictures from last month when she still needed to wear a jacket.
