Remington is Two Years Old

Remi is two! You can check out what we did to celebrate his birthday here.

Here are his stats:

AGE: 2 years old
WEIGHT: 28 pounds
FAVORITE FOOD: Meat of all kinds and spaghetti
FAVORITE TOY: It seems to change every week, but there is a tiny little ball that came from a gum ball machine at the Dentist and we seem to spend a lot of time looking for it for him. He also really loves his drill from Christmas and all the cars he got for his Birthday.
FAVORITE ACTIVITY: Riding his bike and playing trucks
SCARED OF: Dogs and snakes
Favorite Show: Mr. Peabody and Sherman
BEST FRIEND: Addy (of course) and then it's a tie between his cousins, Carter and Everett and his little friend, Juliette.
SILLY TENDENCY: He repeats everything like a little parrot, especially things his sister says. He rolls his rolls and other letters that don't need to be rolled.


"Momma, momma, momma… you know that song?"

"You see that cool trick?"

If you sing the lyrics: "Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful boy…." Remi will say:
"That Sherman!"

Remi Turns Two

Our little man turned two years old yesterday and we had the best day celebrating him. 

One of my favorite things about Remi's birthday this year was watching Addy love on him. She might have been more excited about his Birthday than he was. It was her suggestion to put candles in his pancakes and she would pump him up for each event happening that day.

Celebrations for Remi's birthday were a little thrown together this year. We've had quite a few things going on and my energy level has been a little low, but I'm so glad we didn't let it pass by without doing anything. 

I made arrangements last minute to meet some friends at the Spray Park for pizza and fun. It was busy and hot but if you can't tell by the pictures, I think he had fun.

For birthday dinner, we met Granmarie, Auntie Morgan, Carter and Everett at Zios for "getti." Remi had been talking about wearing a birthday hat all day so his sweet Dad picked some up on his way home as a little surprise. 

Remi loves his cousin Carter and was so excited to have him sit next to him at dinner.

I mean, check out this happy kid. He was so easy to please all day and loved being sung to.

Later that night, when he opened his gifts, he would rip open the paper and say "oh! I like it! Tank you, tank you, tank you!"

 What a joy to celebrate our little man. 
We are so thankful for him and his energetic, happy heart. 

And the celebration continues the next day. 

Love you Wemibird!

30 Weeks with Baby D #3

Tomorrow marks 31 weeks with Baby Danner Number 3. So I thought this would be a pretty good time to get my 30 week update posted. Better late than never right?

Im 30 weeks, 6 days pregnant with my 3rd child and my mind has gone to mush. In the words of my (almost) two year old: "I so tired." Trying to formulate sentences makes my head hurt, so I'll just leave you with these baby bump photos from the past month. There may be a few weeks missing because my midwife moved up my due date from September 28th to the 17th. Which means, I basically skipped two weeks of pregnancy! Of course, we all know that due dates don't really mean anything and that baby's come when they're ready but I like feeling like I'm a little bit farther along.

This babe already has a team of doctors taking care of it.

Thankful for some sweet quiet time by the river in downtown Vail. I want to go back.

Taking the Chair Lift up Copper Mountain. This was right before I dropped my water bottle and my sweet hubby rode back up to retrieve it for me.

29 weeks at 10,000 in beautiful Colorado.

25 Weeks with Baby D

The last month since my previous pregnancy update has been full of ups and downs. Matt and I celebrated our 7th anniversary, I had another ultrasound and all four of us got a nasty stomach bug that knocked us out for about a week. Needless to say, it's been a little rough on my already emotional self. Thankfully, every day gets us closer to meeting our little one. 

My second ultrasound (and probably last, if everything continues to go well) was a special one because my Mom got to join me. The tech said our little one had a beautiful heart which is always encouraging to hear. She also said he or she was measuring even bigger than at our last ultrasound, with a possible due date of 9/11 which is 17 days ahead of schedule. 

*Enter big eyed emoji here*

Since I have a little bit of experience with large babies, (Remi was a day late and over nine pounds) Im not getting my  hopes up. Im planning on a very large October baby and anything different will be a pleasant surprise. 

Everything else has been going well. I'm finding that a good night's sleep, good food and a walk before bed help keep me sane and in less pain. When my energy levels are up, I have an overwhelming desire to organize everything in the house and am having fun finding things for the new Big Kid's room and baby room. 

With all we've had going on lately, I've been slacking on taking any baby bump pics, but here are the two I've managed to capture:

This was on the night we celebrated our anniversary. We had such a great evening and I'm so thankful for our special time together. 

And here we have all three of my babies. One is doing flips in my tummy while one begs to be held and the other attempts to tie a ribbon around her waist. 
I love them all.

Remi is Almost Two!

This little man has a birthday coming up soon.

In a little over a month, Remington will be two. 

These first few weeks of summer and being pregnant have brought back a lot of memories of our summer waiting for him to come. And I have to say, I enjoy having him on the outside my belly much more. 

Remi is a typical middle child and so finding pictures and things to say about him are a little bit harder than it was when Addy turned two, but I'm determined to not cut him short. And for some reason, while uploading photos from my phone for this post, I found a lot of him sleeping. He's a good napper and who doesn't love a sleeping baby picture?

Love when he sleeps with his toes like that.

When did he get so long??

Sweet, sick little guy

Remi loves to ride his bike.

"Go fast! Go fast"
His favorite thing is to ride up one driveway and glide down another. 
"Do again!"

He has a thing for hats and happens to look pretty adorable in them.

He also loves to be given big boy jobs around the house. 
"I got it, I got it….. help me."

Up until this week, he was terrified of the water and wouldn't let go of me, even with floaties on. Now, he loves it and is so proud of how he can float all on his own.

Some other random facts about our Wemibird:

He bounces when he runs
He repeats everything Addy says all.the.time.
When he isn't copying his sister's every word, he's mimicking his Dad's every move

We are so thankful for this silly, playful little guy.
