Here are a few pictures.
I didn't really decorate, but I did put this up.Here is Tanner's Dr. Seuss Train Cake. I thought it looked like a Dr. Seuss cake since it was really bright colors and they're different sizes, and the last one was a little tipsy. (Hey, I'm an amateur)
Yay for cake!
Tanner would rip a tiny little strip of wrapping paper off and then hand it to someone. Let's just say it took him a little while to open his gifts. We eventually got him to put his garbage in a box instead of handing it to someone. We also let Vance help unwrap a couple. He was getting impatient with Tanner's slow unwrapping process.

I posted a different video of this on my facebook page as well. Blogger just will not upload my videos that are longer than a minute. Anyway, you can hear Tanner better on this one anyway. I don't know why, but Tanner loves to watch the newest New Moon Trailer. He'll watch it and say "Again." as much as I will actually let him watch it again. I thought it might scare him the first time he watched it sitting on my lap, but he was completely enthralled. He loves to "wolf" at the werewolves, which also got Vance wolving too. He likes to repeat one or two words of lines here and there and he gets into the fight between Edward and the Volturi members. A lot of times he says, "Get 'em" but sometimes he says other things too. I don't remember what he says, if anything in this video. If you have a chance you should see him watch it in person because it is funny. Of course, it could just be because I'm his Mom.

Here is the video I put together from the last year of Tanner. He turns 2 on Sunday! The song is I'm Yours by Jason Marz. It wasn't my first pick, but the one I wanted to use, I could not get to work so I had to settle for that instead. Hope you enjoy the video. We are so happy to have Tanner in our family. He amazes us with his talking and is my cuddlier. He wants to be like his older brother, but definitely has a mind of his own. It's fun to look back and think about the last year and how much he has grown and learned in that time.

Stephen told his boss yesterday that I was expecting and I have to share her response which was, "Uh-oh...wait, is this a good thing?" Stephen assured her that it was a good thing. Then she said something like, "That's a lot of little ones." I told Stephen he should have pointed at himself and said, "Uh, Mormon, remember?" Where we used to live three kids was nothing, but here is seems to be a much bigger deal and guess what we might not be done with 3 (gasp!). To add to that we've had our kids fairly close together so I imagine that makes it all the crazier to people. Hey, I want to have my babies while my body is young and to be able to keep up with my little ones.
I'm just waiting until I start showing because I know two comments/questions I'm bound to get. First, off people are going to tell me that I'm going to have my hands full. Thanks, for pointing that out. I actually am already well aware of that. The other I'm sure I'll get is something to do with either needing to have a girl or asking if I want to have a girl. Honestly, and I'm not just saying it I don't care. If I have a girl, great. I'd love to have a daughter, but I'll be just as happy with another boy. I love my boys and I am prepared to have another one as far as clothes and toys go.
I promise not to make every post one about pregnancy and babies, but I couldn't help but chuckle over Stephen's boss and her response.

Across his room in front of the rocking chair where we had a stack of books fast asleep. I imagine he got out of bed as soon as I left and looked through books until he was so tired he fell asleep. I'm having a little trouble today getting him to take a nap too, even though he's so tired he can hardly keep his eyes open. I have had to go in a couple of times and tell him to lay back down and go to sleep. Not having to lift him in and out of his crib is a back saver though.

Now that I have officially announced it, I can make references to being pregnant. Oh, and if you are curious there will be a 2 1/2 year difference between Tanner and our new baby, Vance will be 4 by then.
