Baby Hanson #2 18 weeks

Well Baby Hanson #2 is 18 weeks old today!I feel that I finally look pregnant, as opposed to fluffy, or like I ate too much over the holidays.The belly has popped out and I think its obvious I'm pregnant. I sometimes wonder if people think I just still have some weight to loose from Sofia, but oh well.
I think we have already had a couple instances of sibling rivalry. Once last week Sofia woke up in the middle of the night, crying and baby #2 started kicking and moving like crazy. Then as soon as Sofia went back to sleep and it got quiet the movement stopped and we all went back to sleep. Then last night I was rocking Sofia and she was across my tummy and baby #2 started kicking and moving. As soon as Sofia fell asleep I laid her down and the movement from baby #2 stopped. I think Sofia was cramping his or her space in the womb.LOL. And so it begins...
I would really love for these two to be really close to one another. They are so close in age I think it will be great if they get along, whether its a boy or girl. I am going to do my best to encourage it.

As far as Miss Sofia goes, she is happy as a clam crawling and climbing everywhere. Her personality is changing, and she is definately becoming more and more independent every day.

Happy Happy

Today Sofia was in such a good mood all day long. It was sooo cute. She woke up at 8am and has not napped yet. She is so excited to be crawling she doesn't even want to stop to eat. She has just been going and going all day. I can tell she feels really independent being able to get around by herself. She really loves to go to this one corner in our living area and just hang out there. There are tons of power cords that she likes back there. Maybe shes going to be an electrician.LOL

I love this picture, because I think it really captures the moment.

Ciao for now!

Sofia is most certainly crawling. She began officially yesterday. She has been struggling with it for weeks now. But she is off, it is official. She had began "rocking" about 4 weeks ago but just didn't really get going anywhere. She found a way to scoot around places especially to get to things like my lap top or cell phone,but it wasn't really a crawl until yesterday. She would get in plank position and stay there for a while,then do mountain climbers LOL sometimes she would even push so hard with her hands she would slide backwards,poor baby made it so much harder on herself. I am waiting to see what she does today. Thinking it make take her some time to warm up and remember, but I am sure she will get really good and fast.

Baby number 2 is coming right along. We find out the sex on February 16th, not sure if we are going to tell everyone but probably.We have names picked out for a boy and two for a girl. I feel fine, still pretty energetic. Looking forward to Feb. 16th!

Happy New Year from the Hansons!

PRECIOUS! She liked wearing her hat!

Happy New Year! We are back in Texas!We are getting settled back to our ordinary day to day routine. Sofia is so easy going she just re-adjusts to whatever is going on. Erik went back to work and I'm back to school :( Having the break was nice. I can't believe we are almost done with January and approaching February already. This pregnancy seems to be flying by! I hope it continues this way and doesn't drag on at the end, but I'm sure it will. Any who, make 2011 what you want. We have some goals set for this year, got to get moving on them! Happy 2011!

Sofia is 8 months old!

1/10/2011! Sofia is 8 months old today!
She's such a big girl with a big personality! We are in Louisiana for Erik's reservist duty until Friday the 14th. We have been here since 12/31/10, rang in the new year with some friends here.Sofia lasted until 1:30 am, I on the other hand was ready for bed at 9. But I made it til 12, then Erik took over, and they partied,jk!

It's been a great trip. We have been able to hang out with some friends of ours and our daughters get along really well. Its been fun! I love doing these trips because the officers quarters we stay in has sooo many tv channels AND there is a cleaning service (not including dish washing...darn!lol).

At 8 months Sofia is:
*Eating three full meals a day,which is getting expensive! So I am excited to try our food processor that my parents got us for Christmas when we return to SA.
* She has about 3-4 bottles per day, mostly just for nap time and bedtime.
* She goes to bed around 8:30 pm every night.She wakes up 7-7:30 ish.
* She sleeps through the night wakes about 2-3 times for bottle. Then falls back to bed and sleeps some more.
* She can finally hold her own bottle, though she does NOT like to. I think this took her a while since we use glass bottles and they are somewhat heavy.
* She is not crawling yet. She wants to but gets frustrated very easily!!! She started to show signs that she was ready to crawl about 2 weeks ago but now she has regressed some. lol. I think she's fallen a few times and now she's scared to hurt her little self! Such a girl.
* She still loves to bounce in her boucer. I love watching her.
* She loves to play with my cell phone. Silly girl!
* She loves to play in mommy's makeup. Again, what a girl!
*She claps her hands.
*She says dada and nana.
*We are still doing the Your Baby Can Read program. She enjoys it.
*Her favorite song is the Itsy Bitsy Spider, she likes the part where it says "washed the spider out".
*She can wave bye bye.She does not do it everytime but we are getting there. It is still a little uncoordinated and sloppy but shes getting it.
*She has interacted with a few different kids and I am pleased with her behavior.She is very passive and is willing to share.I think she will make a good big sister. I am expecting a little jealousy at first but she will be so young, I think she will learn quickly.
*Shes still so little wearing 6 month clothes, she has 9 month stuff but she drowns in it. Some 6 month stuff is getting snug. Shes pretty much between sizes.
*Last doctor appointment she measured in the 20th percentile. Shes a wittle one! Erik still says shes going to catch up and be tall.I am not so sure. As long as she remains healthy I am happy.
*she has learned to make this growling noise, which totally cracks me up!
*she has 0 teeth!
* She does not wear shoes. This makes me sad. I love babies in shoes!
*She is very social. She's very smiley still. It is so precious!
*She loves to be out and about. She sits in the grocery carts like a big girl and kicks her little legs while we go down the isles.Shes a great shopping partner! WAYYYY better than Erik.:)

Well baby number 2 is well on its way. I'm 16 weeks this Saturday. So 4 months down, 5 to go! I can not wait to find out the sex of the baby! I just want a healthy baby. Sex is not a big deal. Either way will be so cute!

Erik is still enjoying his new job, working on growing his own business, and being dad :) He's doing a wonderful job!

We are in the process of house hunting. I don't know how people did that without the internet? I would hate to have to drive around all day looking for homes...can't imagine that! Looking to be in our first home this spring at the latest this summer, since our condo will be paid off come March! Very exciting time for Erik and I, that is if we can agree on something... LOL! All our saving and "frugalness" is finally paying off. We are so blessed!

Happy New Year to all! BESOS! CIAO for now!

I hope everyone had a VERY Merry Christmas!We certainly had a wonderful 1st family Christmas. We went to mass the night before Christmas, spent Christmas eve at my maternal grandmother's house.Then Christmas day I made breakfast, then we headed over to my maternal and paternal grandparents house for lunch and gift exchange. Sofia was a very good girl and Santa did come to visit her :) She woke up soooo excited Christmas morning. It always seems like she knows what is going on.We really enjoyed the time off to relax with my family.
Besos! Ciao for now!
