Pumpkin Patch 2013

After church, lunch and a quick nap for Mak, we headed to the Pumpkin Patch for the first time this year to meet the Thompsons! I was so excited to take Mak to pick out our first pumpkin and start these fun traditions as a family. Holidays are so fun with a child and I know the older our kids get, the more fun they will become.

Looks like we already need to work on the "that's not yours Mak" talk.
Pumpkins are yummy

I can't wait to continue these holiday traditions with my favorite boys! Next year will be even better!

IT'S A...

Because I have no patience and because the kids will be so close in age, we decided to find out the gender of Baby Kubas at 16 weeks instead of the traditional 20 week check up! Today just so happened to be the first Gamecock Football home game so Alex took the day off and we headed to our appointment in anticipation of finding out if we were going to have another football player OR a cheerleader! Today was also Mak's first day of school at his new daycare, Kathwood Baptist, but we let him play hooky because we wanted him there when we found out! Before we found out we were pregnant with Mak, I always said I wanted all boys but once we found out we were expecting our second child, the thought of a little girl/ Daddy's girl, kept sounding more and more appealing. My pregnancy has been the same as it was with Mak's so we were pretty sure it was another boy but to our surprise, IT'S A GIRL! As soon as we saw the ultrasound screen and heard those words from the nurse, Alex looked at me with a smile that read "I AM IN TROUBLE"! Mak is for sure a Mama's Boy and I know that our sweet baby girl will soon be a Daddy's Girl! Katherine Marie Kubas named after her Aunt Kat{Katherine} and her Grandmama Watson{my mom} and Aunt Amy{Marie} is set to arrive Feb 2014! 

    Excited Daddy and Big Brother to be!

Eight Months

How is my child already 2/3 of the way through his first year?? Little man is on the move these days and his means of transportation is rolling not crawling. He has not really showed much interest in crawling but has started to act like he wants to pull up. Maybe he will skip crawling and go straight to walking. As long as he is walking by the time his brother or sister is born! He has 3 top and 4 bottom teeth in and 1on the top that is trying to pop through. He continues to look just like his daddy and I don't really see that changing anytime soon! After his first hair cut, he looks more like a little man than a baby{tear!}. He is still saying "Mama" and has started saying "bye bye" while trying to wave. Daddy keeps trying to get him to say "Dada" and I think he is so close!

And another makes FOUR!

Yep, Alex and I are expecting our second child February 13, 2014! I still can't believe our little baby boy will soon be a big brother! We had talked about when we wanted our second but it was definitely a surprise when we found out we were expecting. I estimate{hoping!} to deliver a week or so before my due date which will put Mak and his baby brother or sister just over 14 months apart! After the news set in, we couldn't be more excited and blessed to bring in another little miracle into this world! Here's to hoping for another easy baby like his/her big brother!

Seven Months

Another month has passed and another month closer to his first birthday! He is still one happy little boy and we couldn't be more thankful for that! Alex always says, 'Were not going to know what to do if our next child is a normal baby' and he's right. Mak rarely cries and the only time is when he is hungry. We have been back and forth to the doctor because of a cough that Mak has developed and Dr Mubarak is trying to narrow down what it could be since he has had it for so long. Allergies maybe? Ugh! Other than that, he's still a growing little boy!

Happy Half Birthday Baby Boy!

Baby Boy has officially got the mid point of his first year! It's funny how slow time goes when you're pregnant and how fast time goes once they are born. Mak is growing so fast and is still the most laid back baby. He is loving going to school and I think it's safe to say, his teachers love him too! We took him to his 6 month well check up and he weighed in at 19 lbs 3 oz{75th percentile} and 28 inches long{90th percentile}! My sister started baking half cakes for her kids on their half birthdays, so we decided to get a cupcake and celebrate with half of a cupcake since we had been at the beach all weekend! He wasn't sure at first but loved daddy feeding him the icing. Hard to believer were half way to his FIRST birthday! Happy Half Birthday Buddy! We love you!  
Before we headed back home from the beach, Aunt Kat and I took Mak down to the beach to see if we could get any pictures of him and it was too bright but this was one of my favorites

Mak's Baptism

I remember sitting in mass after Alex and I got engaged picturing our wedding day and everyone there celebrating us. When we found out we were pregnant, I again found myself in mass picturing us in the church except this time baptizing our baby boy! We've attended three baptisms before this one but nothing is like standing up on the altar holding our son just as our parents had done with us when we were babies. It was such a special day for our little family and so blessed to have family and friends celebrate an important day in our son's life. After the ceremony we hosted family and friends at my parents house to celebrate our first born's baptism. Mak may not know the importance of that day now but I know one day he will and I can only hope that Alex and I can instill in him what our parents did for us, Your relationship with God is the most important relationship you will ever form.
