37 weeks and counting...

Whoo-hoo! I am really excited to be almost done. Not that I haven't enjoyed being pregnant, but man oh man am I about really to be done.

Oh an PS have I mentioned that I am not 100% that it's a boy floating around in there? Yeah, I'm not. It is just such a different experience from last time! I know, I know, there was a little wiener on the sonogram picture, but I had a dream that it was just the cord. Not to mention...

I had a little, if any, morning sickness.
I craved Mexican food and chilli dogs.
And all things sweet, especially chocolate, gave me heartburn.
I gained a whopping 60 lbs.
I carried him low and I have the amazing stretch marks to proove it.
I got wider, like a lot wider. He was all tucked inside.

I was SO stinkin sick! All day long. It was awful.
I have craved nothing but sweets, like gummies and Dr Pepper and, believe it or not, Chocolate...and a lot of it. Wow.
With this one, so far, I'm not even up to 20 lbs yet.
I am carrying this one super super high. So high in fact that my ribs have popped out. (More on that little wonder to come...)
This one is all out in front. I mean ALL OUT in front.
Not to mention I just don't "feel" like it's a boy in there.
I don't know. I will take whatever I can get, don't get me wrong, but, well, we'll just see come D-DAY what comes out!PS: How long is my hair! I am so excited! It's about time!

Happy Birthday Brookie!

Today is my Brooke's birthday. She made this collage for me on my birthday, sorry I stole it! I just don't have ANY pictures of us from way back when, you know?
So Happy happy birthday to my favorite girl in the whole wide world. You have been my sister and my friend. I am so stinkin proud of you for the person you are and the way cute family you are raising. All my life, you were the one I looked up to and wanted to be like. You were and are my role model and I just love you bunches. You're amazing and talented and beautiful and just an all around great person. I want to call you so bad today but I have this CRUD and my voice is nearly nonexistent. So I hope you have a wonderful birthday and forgive me for using the pictures you did. I love you and miss you! You're amazing! Love love love!

PS Could I have looked any more like a monkey in that picture in the upper left hand corner?!? For real!

We're calling in sick!

That's right, we're sick. Izacc and I that is. We somehow managed to keep it at bay all winter long, but April hits and we've decided now would be a great time to sit in bed all day. We went for a short visit up to Gramma and Papa's last week. Little cousin M had a fever of 102, a nasty cough and a super snotty nose when I got there, so we tried to keep the boys seperated. The problem was that his parents just kept bringing him around (and not taking him to the Dr, might I add) So not only did Izacc and I end up catching it, but Papa, Uncle Pee and Aunt Nee got it as well. Nothing like sharing, right? There's not a lot I can take, being pregnant and all, but Izacc is all hopped up on antibiotics and on "boogie" patrol, informing me whenever there is another intruder. He has a pretty nasty ear infection as well, but you'd never know it. He's still his happy, silly self. Ah well. We're just trying our best not to get Daddy infected...

New Room

Izacc has been sleeping in a "big boy bed" for quite some time now. ("Big boy bed" being his crib with one of the sides taken off) Well, my nesting instinct hit and I suddenly felt the need to wipe down and disinfect everything in what was Izacc's room, will be the new baby's room, even though I know it's not necessary right this minute seeing as how the new babe will be sleeping in our room for at least a couple months...sometimes logic eludes me. Anyway, the time had come for Izacc to move across the hall into his new, much bigger room. And to make it a special thing for him, we have found almost all things Cars ...
New sheets (thanks Papa and Gramma) and a nice new quilt...
New curtains (handmade by Mommy, of course. Who can afford those character cartoon curtains anyway?)
And even a new bedside lamp and matching nite lite. (Big Lots is my superhero!)

There is still a clock to be hung and a dresser to be painted "Lightning McQueen" red, but I think this will be the best Cars room ever... hopefully he'll like Cars for more than another year...
