Life in the Fast Lane

It has been awhile since I posted, so I thought I'd give a quick update. Life is moving along quickly. I am soon to be 32 weeks pregnant. That has pushed us into high gear. Are we really ready to have another baby in our home??? We realized that we need to get moving on the "Big Boy" room, since we want Abe sleeping in there for at least 2 to 3 weeks before the baby comes. Just cleaning the room out was a huge effort, but it is cleaned out and painted. We're just searching for bunk beds and a dresser now. Stay tuned for some great before / after pictures.


Abraham has really picked up his talking. He is starting to crack us up with the things he says and does. This morning I put him in his chair and set out his breakfast for him. I was getting some things done in the kitchen and had forgotten to have breakfast prayer with him. About 5 minutes after he'd been sitting there, I finally sat down myself. He looked at me, folded his arms and said "amen". What a sweet boy. We love to hear him repeat his animals sounds and all his made up names for things. Cell phones are called "hi!" and his pillow is called "awwww". He's started coming up to me and pointing to his diaper and telling me "stinky". He is actually pretty accurate and usually only does it when he really is stinky. The good always comes with the bad though, and he has started with tantrums as well. It can be so frustrating, and you are always sure that everyone is staring at you and wondering what in the world you just did to your kid to make him scream and cry like that. Oh terrible twos, here we come.

All in all, life is good for the Carlile family and we hope it is for you too!

What for terrible twos with a newborn. It really keeps you on your toes. The reward are greater than the trials so keep it up. Try to enjoy each moment because it really does go by so fast.

You will have plenty of quick quotes for yourself soon! I can tell you are getting really pregnant and not sleeping well because your pillow talk has slowed down....try to get some sleep (it could be your last in a while ;)
