Tick Toc, Tick Toc

The days are beginning to fly by as we await the arrival of number two...well at least for me, they are moving like molasses for Lisa. As we prepare for our little bundle of joy (we didn't find out at our ultra sound, but my money is on a girl), changes have had to be made in our daily repertoire. Cullen has made the transition to his "big boy" bed and he now awakes each morning by yelling "Hi Baby" at Lisa's belly. He is also convinced that it is a girl and wants to name her...drumroll...Cullen.

Cullen has done pretty well in the new bed. Instead of getting out on his own, he calls "Mom" when we wakes up. Our biggest fear is a two-year-old mischief-maker running through the house at all hours, but so far that hasn't happened. Little does Cullen know that the "big boy" bed is only the beginning of many changes to come....

Little Peeps on the Hunt.

Happy Easter!

Fire Truck, Guys and Ice Cream

Uncle Drew (a.k.a. Firefighter Feste) took us to his fire station for a tour. Cullen was really excited to go see the fire truck. However, when we arrived, the fire truck was out on a call. Within 5 minutes, the garage door opened and the giant truck with flashing lights came roaring into the station. It came to a halt and 6 guys jumped off the truck and took off their jackets and boots. I think the whole scene was a bit intimating to a little 27 lb. boy. Caption Jimmy told Drew to sit up in the driver seat with Cullen, but when it came time for Cullen to climb in, he started crying. Cullen appreciated the big rig, but only wanted to look from a distance. Then Dirk tried to climb into the cab and Cullen yelled "No Dodo, No Dodo" - as if the fire truck was going to eat his dad. Finally, he warmed up to the whole situation after Captain Jimmy offered an ice cream bar. When we got back to Grandma and Grandpa's, they asked Cullen what he saw at the fire station and he said "fire truck". Then we asked what else and he replied "guys and ice cream."
