I'm about to do something I may not have done since Banks was born: post pictures of something other than him. Last weekend we had a grown-up weekend in Oxford for the Ole Miss/Georgia game. I made a point to take pictures to document the weekend since I NEVER take pictures of things other than Banks these days. I took four whole pictures. Well, guess that's better than nothing! We had a blast-catching up, talking about things other than our kids, and staying up way past my bedtime. This was one tired pregnant lady come Sunday. It was fun pretending that we didn't have any responsibilities!!! I forgot how easy it is to just take care of myself for a few days!!!
The girls from the weekend: Lauren, Ashleigh, me, Molly and Ashely

And speaking of pretending, I've been told that most toddlers don't begin really engaging in make-believe until closer to the age of three but I've been noticing Banks pretending more and more. He pretended to call some folks on the phone last night and I heard him say "oh, I just doing a puzzle. Mommy and Daddy almost all gone with dinner." He's also started to pretend with his toys some. He likes to pretend they're eating a snack. The other day he told me "Lightening Queen make a mess." And he had. Apparently, Lightening doesn't know how to swallow apple sauce.
The lawn mower was really hungry for a Cheez-It
Not to say that he's pretender extraordinaire...when we ask him what we should name his brother, he says names like "donk" (short for donkey???) and "outside." Outside Still has a nice ring to it, eh? Much better than Donk Still for sure. Poor Donk. He's already getting the shaft as the second kid. With Banks I documented (for our eyes only) my belly growth every week. I'm doing good to remember to do it once a month this time around. And we can't decide on a real name for Donk. I don't remember it being this hard to decide with Banks. I guess because we always knew if we had a boy he would be Banks. This time we're going WAY back in the family trees to figure out what Donk should be named. Wish us luck!!!
