(Kai fake crying in his room)
Me: Kai, what's going on?
Kai: I'm crying in my bed.
Me: Why are you crying?
Kai: I'm sad.
Me: Why are you sad?
Kai: I miss daddy. I need daddy.
Me: What do you need daddy for?
Kai: I need to play with Bubbi (his blankie) with Daddy (Gary plays fun tickling/hiding/type games with Bubbi).

What a silly boy. His fake cry is really weird. I kind of just laugh about it because its so fake.

Today I took Kai for a bike ride in the bike trailer behind me. We had to bike just 3km away (that's 6km return:) to pick up something I got off of craigslist. I was nervous because last time I got a lot of cramping but this time, it went really well! I usually warn Kai about the bumps because there's really no shocks on the trailer. He said, `Mommy, does your bum hurt? Mommy, are you scared?'. It's strange that he's now wondering how we are doing. He'll often ask us, `Mommy, how you doing?'. I love talking with him.

He has really been on a letter kick lately. He is interested in his alphabet book and loves recognizing letters out in the real world. The letters he now knows are (capitals): A, B,C,D,E,K,M,O,U,W, X ,Y,Z. I hope he'll love reading as much as I do!! He doesn't recite the whole alphabet, he just fills in the blank if I do it. He thought LMNO was elmo:)

The hard part about working part time is not being able to do all my school prep stuff while at home. I can do a bit but I need all my binders, textbooks, lab supplies, photocopier, library etc. which is all at school. This means that during lunch hour and after school I am running around trying to get stuff ready for the next teaching day. Obviously its easier just teaching 2-3 times a week BUT the days that I'm there are busier than they were before.

The start of this week is a busy group starts up again tonight (small group from our church), Tuesday we have `Meet the Teacher' evening, and Wednesday Gary and I are being treated to a special date which I will blog about then:)

Baby wise, I feel good. I've just gained 9lbs which is pretty normal. Although, I did start out 7lbs heavier than I was with Kai so I'm not sure how all that gets factored in. We did get the results from our triple screen marker test. I know some people mentioned that i didn't have to do it, and I know, my doctor asked if it would make me more or less anxious to do it. For me, the more I know, the better so i'm glad I did it. All of our results came back normal so that's good. We have decided not to have an ultrasound at one of thost 4D/3D whatever they are places. I don't want to actually see our baby, I wanted that to be a surprise, I just wanted to know if it was a boy or girl. Sex determination at one of those clinics costs $125.00...not worth it to me. I feel like if I was supposed to know, I would know by now. At this point with Kai, we had already named him, bought him some outfits etc. I look forward to the surprise and know I will be crying regardless:) The idea of Kai holding his little baby brother or sister brings tears to my eyes now so I don't know how I'm going to handle it! Yesterday he felt the baby kick. He thought that was pretty cool and told me he wanted to play with the baby. I explained that the baby was still growing so he suggested I take more medicine (prenatal vitamins) so the baby grows faster. I honestly have no clue if its a boy or girl. I can't imagine either but I guess if i had to picture myself with one, it would prob. be another boy, just because I `know' boys and I think they are pretty fun! Sorry this is a pictureless post...nothing really to take a picture of today.
