It's a BOY

This pregnancy has been so different from my last pregnancy, so I just KNEW this baby was a girl. I was 95% sure of it and I told everyone. Yesterday, at my 16 week appointment, we found out that my little girl is actually a BOY!! I was so shocked that I was wrong, but so grateful for a boy. I do not want any baby girls because I do not want any teenage girls. I know how I was as a teenager and I don't want Karma to give me what I deserve.

Baby boy Nuffer is measuring a couple weeks ahead of schedule, but Jackson was a really long baby, so I'm not shocked this one is long as well. In a couple weeks we have a visit with the specialist and we'll get some really cool 3D photos. I'm so excited to see what this baby looks like. Will he and Jackson look alike? I hope so! Not just because Jackson is the cutest boy on the planet, but because my dream as a little girl was to have 2 children look just alike except one has light hair and the other has dark hair. Jackson's my little blondie, so fingers crossed this one will have darker hair. Either way, I'm just so excited to meet this little guy be he blonde, brunette, or bald!

FHE Tower of Babel

This was a pretty simple FHE. After prayer we watched the story of the Tower of Babel and Jackson wasn't that interested this time. Then I thought building a tall tower with blocks would teach Jackson about towers. He usually likes playing with his blocks, but not this time. He built a tower twice and both times knocked it down and ran away. Oh well, you win some, you lose some.

Noah's Ark FHE

I'm a little late in getting this up, but here it is! We learned about Noah's Arc this week. After prayer, we watched the scripture story of Noah's Arc on LDSFriend.org. This is one of Jackson's favorite times. All week long he points to the computer and says, "shope" which means show. He calls the scripture stories his shows or "shopes". So cute!

Then I made a generic ark out of construction paper so that Jackson could decorate it with colored and different shaped pasta. We just used Elmer's glue. He had a blast!






And the final results:
