Advice mommies?

So as most of you know baby #2 is on the way! I have a dilemma right now though. The big question buy a 2nd crib or to not buy a 2nd crib???

When baby #2 arrives Jack will be 22 months. He turns two in July, and we are due in April.

Should I get a 2nd crib, or try to move Jack to a big boy bed?

I could try and keep the new baby in the port a crib for a few months, but by the time he/she is 3 months I like to make the switch and put them in their own rooms, so Jack would have to switch to a big boy bed at 2 years old.

Will he be too young? What do ya'll think?

Also...if this baby is a girl...I'm REALLY going to want to have a girl nursery all decorated and ready :) If its a boy, then Jack's nursery would just stay the same and he'd move out to a big boy room.

Pumpkin Patch

Last week we took Jack to a pumpkin patch, but it wasn't the mac daddy pumpkin patch we'll be taking him to this weekend. This one was actually free for active duty military last weekend, so we decided to take advantage of it and get out of the house. Anyways, Jack had fun and so did we!
Jack and Brad ate waaayyy too much kettle corn!
This is what Jack loved doing the most....walking around with that stick digging in the dirt...110% boy!

Becky Bakes

So....I've decided to start my own business out of my home making cakes for special occasions. I hope to find business doing cakes for showers, parties, and whatever other special event you might have coming up! I feel like I can probably make any kind of cake you have in mind...the possibilities are endless! I'm also willing to coordinate my trips home to do cakes for customers in the Lake Charles area, so help me get the word out! Today I did a cake for a baby shower....go check out on my blog to see more! I've added the link to blogs I watch so you can access it from there too!

Parks are the best!

I spent most of my afternoons when I was little either riding bikes with my family or playing at a park. Since those memories are so dear to me...I wanted to make sure we do the same with Jack as often as possible, so recently we took Jack to the Brackenridge Park in San Antonio. I have to say Jack had a blast! We packed snacks & plenty of bread to feed the ducks! This park also has a train ride which he enjoyed with some popcorn as well! It was a really fun day, and Jack was pooped by the time we got to the car!
Getting ready for the train to go!

a little scare...

Last week we had a dating ultrasound...which now puts me at 12 weeks pregnant(a little further along than I had thought). The ultrasound was going fine, but then the ultrasound tech left the room to return to say she thought the nuchal translucency(fluid behind the neck that can detect down syndrome, heart defects, etc.) looked a little thickened, so they were going to refer me to Maternal Fetal Medicine for some more measurements, but they wouldn't be able to see me for another week.....lovely now I get to worry about whether my baby has Downs for a week is all I could think about! Ofcourse my heart sank...then I felt a little pissed off inside b/c why was this happening to me????...then Brad said he'd look it all up when we got home so I started to feel better, and then when he actually did look it up and research it I really started to feel better b/c my baby's NT didn't look abnormal at all. I still had to wait a week though to really find out, and I have to say its been pretty tough. I've done a lot of praying, and although our first goal is to bring a healthy baby into the world...I started to find peace in the possibility of having a child with a disability. After all every baby is a gift from GOD, and as for Brad and I...having this baby and giving it the best life in the world was our only option. So at this point I know all of you are freaking I'll get to the point.

EVERYTHING IS FINE! The doctor said our baby looks completely healthy, and basically we don't really have anything to worry about!

And...for everyone who is wondering why the heck I didn't tell them about this last week...well I didn't want you to worry too, and we really wanted to know for sure before we started sharing the news with everyone. Nothing personal I love all of you!
