The Boys

We've been pretty busy so I'm doing a quick  2 for 1 post. First I just wanted to post a few pictures of Konnor and his new favorite thing to do. He is becoming quite the artist and has inspired us to recycle paper and start a new rule about using both sides of the paper. We even have a little box just for him to put his "used up paper" in. It wasn't all that long ago that we couldn't have payed the boy to draw or write. We are really excited to see him doing so well at something he enjoys so much.

The other thing is that yesterday we had our fourth ultrasound at 22 weeks. The whole purpose of this ultrasound was to check out Parker's heart because they had some concerns after our last ultrasound. We are excited to share that it went perfectly and we finally got to hear the words we have been waiting to hear through all of the craziness of trying to get Parker here the past couple of years "Mrs. Applegate, your baby looks great he's growing perfectly. Everything looks great." Wow. I didn't even know how to take that one in. Now I need to get used to and excited for the idea that we are actually going to have this baby.YAY!!  Here are a couple of the pictures we got yesterday.


  1. wonderful news on the baby! that desk looks awesome. Joseph has been asking for a desk. do you know where you got it or what brand it is?

  2. Jill, Thanks! I can't remember where we got it because Konnor has had that desk since we lived in our apartment but has just started using it A LOT. I also just looked for a brand and couldn't find one. I'm assuming if we bought it then it was fairly cheap and from Walmart or Target :) Good luck!
