Here's a little info about what's in the room. Two walls are green and two walls are white. Ben loves green and it goes great with the bedding but we couldn't bring ourselves to paint the entire room that color. So, we compromised. We got the bed and dresser at IKEA (big suprise, it's one of my favorite stores). I found the bedding online and it's by a company called Olive Kids - they have great stuff. Probably the coolest part is the multi-colored bookshelf which was actually built by my father, but was given over to us from my brother Chris and his family. Dad built it for them when their son Sam was born but now they are not using it and it fits perfectly in his room, so thank you guys for passing it on! Also, the little wall plaque with the hooks for hats, etc. was given to me by my neighbor, who has a young son, several months ago and it just happened to fit in the new room too. I have to give the most thanks to my parents who helped by bringing the shelf up from Austin and with painting and putting items up and together. Tim was great too and did lots of painting and assembly and made sure everything was anchored to the wall (no accidents please) and just helped to make sure his little boys room was set up nicely. So, after all this work, we hope he will enjoy it soon!

Anyway, thanks to my parents for the pictures (apparently his parents don't take any - 3rd child syndrome, you know!) Ahh- I am just teasing them! I know they are super busy. I am sure they are saying "Yeah, just wait until you have 2 and you will see how it goes!" We love you guys and are so glad that Daniel is doing so well!

Tim was sweet and brought me chocolates and a yummy dinner and gave me a list of 50 things he loves about me - which made me cry and I had to read many times. He's such a loving and sweet man and I am so glad he's mine!
Ben had the most fun eating a lollipop that one of his classmates gave him, as seen here:
So, I guess depending on your age Valentine's means different things to everyone - although, candy does seem to be a universal theme.
In other news, Ben has sucessfully started sleeping in his "bed" (a.k.a crib without the front on it) and this weekend my parents are coming up to help us paint and set up his new room that we are getting ready for him, queen size bed and all! I will have pictures in a week or so. We are not quite sure how he's going to react to it all, but hopefully once he sees his "big boy room" he will be excited and ready to make the transition.
Stay warm everyone, I am SO ready for Spring to make an appearance soon!

Hopefully tomorrow he will be fever-less and we will return to our normal routine (not that we don't like to mix it up a little sometimes...) We are mostly just hoping that our little man feels better!

Also, I gained 10 pounds in 4 weeks and I was a little startled by that. The doctor said that at this stage that can be fairly common due to the increase in blood and fluids in the body (or maybe it's all the sweets I think I have an excuse to consume!) At any rate she wasn't as alarmed as I was but said that it should taper off and if it doesn't I will be "in trouble" (from her anyway). So, I guess I will try to adjust my eating habits a little bit. Besides, not much more is going to fit in there pretty soon!
Ben said "hi" to baby brother by touching my belly today - oh so CUTE! We are starting the process soon of moving him into a big boy room while at the same time trying to potty train. Everyone please pray for all of us!!
