Latest Ultrasound Pics

I am finally getting a chance to post the pictures from our last ultrasound for all to enjoy. As reported in November, we are excited and waiting to meet our little girl. Marty is very interested in the happening in my belly, longing to lift my shirt and give kisses! Very adorable, although it more often turns into raspberries and lots of giggling.
Marty seems to be growing more everyday, either in size or vocabulary!
It is pretty amazing; he is currently 26 lbs and 34 inches tall, such a little man.

Some of these are the traditional US and some are the 3D, which are kinda creepy if you ask me but please enjoy!

We enjoyed George's vacation and the time we spent with our families, but it is nice to be home. Soon I will get the camera out and snap off pictures of our first Christmas in our home. The lights and tree are great.
Can't wait to see our families again!
Love to all!

Santa and Babies

We are home at the grand parents this week for the Thanksgiving Holiday and have gotten one holiday tradition done and out of the way.

Santa Pictures!!!!

Marty was super excited to see Santa come down the stairs and told us he wanted to See Him!!! He did great during picture and told Santa all about the trains he saw at the train museum and the ones he got from Nana.

In addition to enjoying family time during George's vacation we are super excited to announce that Marty is going to have a little Sister!!!
That's right we are having a daughter. Both George and I are very excited and can't wait to meet her. I am currently 18 week or 4 1/2 months. Half way done, YAH!!!!!!!

We wish all our loved ones a Happy Thanksgiving Holiday, with safe travels and great food.

Love to all!

Getting Ready for Thanksgiving

We are starting to get ready for the upcoming Holidays and can't wait to see the family and eat some good food. Today Marty created his first of what I am sure will be many hand turkeys (with just a little help from mom), it was fun and the color combination were all him. He is getting better and better at naming his colors although blue is his go to color!

The rest of the picture are a result of daddy getting him dress before dinner one night. He were eatting pasta with red sauce so his shirt had to come off anyway. I love the little pudge belly!

Yesterday while eating a Tuna sandwich I had to get pictures because it is funny that it is a whole half a sandwich and not bits like he normally eats. Such a little man!!

Pumpkin Patch!!!

So today we got Marty all decked out in his Halloween Costume and took a trip tot he Pumpkin Patch. He looked so cute and had a blast! We made it home with only 7 pumpkins, which I count as a good this because if Marty had had his way we would have taken them all!


There are the chaps and saddle bag I made for his costume!

Fun with Pumpkins!

Its offical Baby #2 looks like Spawn

So, today we headed to the doctors for my check up and got a great little surprise, our new baby's first picture!

I know the picture is a little blurry, but if you look closely it looks like Marty did around this time, Spawn. These Arthur kids really must like Halloween!
Marty was so cute, he waved Hi! to his new little brother/sister, but was not a fan of not being in Mommy's arms. Good thing Daddy was there this time!

Since all of you keep asking, we will be finding out the sex of this baby on November 19th around 10 am. We will let you all know as soon as possible.

We are getting excited for the upcoming holidays and can't wait for the food, family and constant cool weather.
This cold and rainy then not so cold has really got to stop. I am hot enough as it is.

Our love to all, keep an eye here for Halloween Pictures!

Here we go again!!

For those who don't know, We are pregnant again!!!

And yes, I am sick as a dog. Even the meds from last time don't help. In fact, like clock work 10 minutes after I take it, I get it back. I have tried all the suggestions of friends and family and it seems I am jut going to have to suffer.

I just keep telling myself it is all worth it in the end.
Marty is dong well. he seems to enjoy getting to climb into his big boy bed and is staying there just fine.

George has been working and gardening and taking care of us all.

We love you all.
Hugs and Kisses

Box and Bed

So after weeks of walking in on Marty perched atop his crib rail, ready and waiting to take a head dive, we have decided to make it into a big boy bed! The first nap did not go well at all, Marty has figured out how to open the doors and just came walking out.

So last night we keep him up until he was pass out tired and just held the door after he was in there.No crying or pulling on it. At some point he did get up, but, only to bring his big bouncy ball into bed with him. It was in the room.

Here are a pic of his "new" big boy bed!!

Still working on his fork skills

Marty's Box!!!
And after Daddy added on another room!!

Busy, Busy!

It seems like we have been so busy this past month. Marty is running around all day, into everything and keeping us on our toes.
He has become interested in daddy's tool, George in stalled a dog door and worked on getting a troublesome fan in our guest bedroom (Thanks Dad for helping out). So, anytime the tools come out Marty is enthralled, wanted to get his hands on everything. Cute, but not so helpful.

He is talking more and more, repeating things that spark any interest. He is also learning to use his spoon, all though it mostly leads to a mess.
He also enjoys hats.

And getting into places he shouldn't be.

We have had the opportunity to go to our local museum for a Bob the Builder interactive display with our friends, the Isch's and their daughter Maddie.

The kids had a blast.
Driving the characters, playing with the magnetic rock wall, the ball water pump, and the drill press.
Marty is getting so big, size 5 shoes and in 18-24 month clothes. Some times he just looks like a little man. I can't get over it.

He is healing well after his surgery and we will head back for his post-op on the 31st.

George is doing well, working, playing and hanging out. Getting over shingles.

I am still working toward my master's degree, and with some luck will have all the road block to that out of the way so that I can complete my thesis. It has been very frustrating but I keep pushing forward.

We love you all and have enjoyed seeing you all or are looking forward to it.

HAPPY 23rd Birthday Uncle NICK !!!!!!!!

Surgery Update

We have been home for a few hours now, Marty has just woken up from his nap and seems to be doing great. It was a very quick procedure and everything went as planned. His doctor said he should be back to normal by this evening at the soonest.
Thanks to all for your thoughts and prayers, I am sure Marty will gladly show you his scar as he is well on his way to mastering diaper removal.

Love to all

So to fight off the Fresno heat, we got a pool!!!!!

Oh yeah, it is a 10 foot round , 30 inch deep piece of heaven in our back yard.

Go Dad Go! Go Grandpa Go!

George and Grandpa make quick work of setting it up and in no time Marty was splashing around.

It has just finished filling and we will definetly be make use of this investment.

There are so many great videos from this weekend, like Marty's first corn on the cob, his raspberry fingers and his new word and signs.

Take a look!!

Hats, Fish and Boats

I know it has been forever since our last post. Things are going well. Marty is growing and walking and talking more and more. It is pretty amazing to just sit back and watch him. You can not help but laugh. We loved getting to visit with everyone in So Cal.

Marty got to go to the Aquarium of the Pacific, he really loved getting to see all the fish and birds.

We also got to enjoy spending time with our friends the Casados and the Plumb on their new boat. Marty does not enjoy his life jacket but he did like driving and tubing.
George seemed to enjoy it too. I know the rest of us enjoyed watching.

George is working away, getting some more action now that he is on relief and back in the city.
School is going for me, I only have my thesis to complete and although it has been an uphill battle to get it all started, I am looking forward to getting down to the work and getting it done!

Check out my cool hat!

So tired, yet so hungry!

We love all of you and can't wait to see you again.
