We have one more month until we find out the baby's sex. The boy name is probably finished, but the girl name will be a huge debate between Kevin and I . . . we can't seem to find a name that we both like.
All is well in the Lewis household . . . we are as busy as ever, but that hasn't changed in a while. We went to LA with Robbie last week. Kevin had a seminar and I had a work trip. We have decided after going to Iowa and then to LA that Robbie is not a traveling man and we will probably stay home for a while!
It is suppose to be snowy/rainy here this weekend so no big plans for us. Kevin will be studying for boards so Robbie and I will probably run some errands and watch movies at home. Well, Robbie will play and I will watch movies!
Hope all is well with all of you, please know you are constantly in our thoughts and prayers!

- Robbie is currently 15 months old
- He is a HORRIBLE sleeper
- Robbie does not climb out of his crib yet (thank goodness)
- Baby #2 is going to be sleeping in the current crib from day one - and I mean it this time!!!
- Robbie is moving into our guest bedroom for his "big boy room"
- We need as easy and cheap of a solution as possible
- Put a crib from Kevin's aunt and uncle in his room until he is ready for a toddler or big boy bed
- We were graciously offered Kevin's bunk beds from when he was growing up
- Buy a toddler sized bed (I think Robbie would have fun playing in a toddler bed with a theme (car, cartoon, etc) but I am not sure if it would be enough to encourage him to sleep in it plus we really don't want to spend a ton of money on this switch)
Kevin and I are trying to determine what would be the best solution for Robbie and for us. With Robbie's young age and being such a difficult sleeper we were leaning towards the crib and then we can switch to the bunk beds (with side guard rails, of course) when he shows signs of being ready. What do you all think??? What worked for each of you???

While I am here I might as well give you a little update on the Lewis family . . .
We are settled back into the house after our two week trip to Iowa. We were able to get the Christmas decorations down in a timely manner which is shocking! Robbie is back in daycare and he managed to adjust to it just fine. Sleeping is another thing, he is basically back to waking up all night long. Kevin and I are pretty worn out and trying to figure out what we can do to get this kid sleeping through the night so we don't go crazy with the arrival of baby number two! Kevin and I agree that if we can find a "Supernanny" to come to the house and help us we would totally pay for it!!! I know they have lactation consultants but do they have "help my toddler never sleeps" consultants??? Kevin is very busy with school and his internship. We are still praying about what he should do once he graduates. We will hopefully know more within 3 - 6 months. If you think of it, please keep us in your prayers concerning this subject! I am busy with work, military duty and household duties. It seems this work is never ending, but I did get a chance to take a relaxing bath the other day - my first one in over a year! This used to be a weekly treat for me - but that was back in my single I don't have a care in the world days! Kevin and I are planning on taking time this weekend for our third date since Robbie was born, that's right folks date number three in 15 months! Not good, we need more Mommy/Daddy time! I can't really blame it on Robbie though, it is really Kevin's fault with his horrible schedule!
Hopefully I can find the time to update my pictures soon - I haven't updated since Halloween!!! Shameful!

But there is one thing that I have been dying to post . . . and now that I have finally told all our families, I can now announce to everyone else . . . We are expecting baby #2!
We are due July 19th. We announced to Kevin's family at Thanksgiving but I wanted to wait until I saw my family in person so we told my family at Christmas. It was so much fun! We bought Robbie a shirt that on the front said "I know something you don't know" and on the back it said "I am going to be a BIG BROTHER". It was so much fun to have Robbie wear the shirt until everyone noticed! I will try to get him to sit still long enough to get a picture of the shirt!
Wishing you and your loved ones a blessed new year!
