Happy Halloween!



Well it's the end of a very long week for us. On top of J's illness he's cutting his 2 yr molars... eeek! So needless to say he has zero tolerance for anything out of the norm, or concern for patience, humor, or goodwill. He was a very angry black cat for a whole 30 seconds! However the baby was very cooperative for spending this Halloween in the womb!

Maternity Pics to share...



Okay, so I'm technically in my 32nd week - 8 months - wow! However, I have some maternity portraits that I had taken when I was 6 mths and thought I'd share! I've been so much better about documenting this pregnancy than I was with J. So while subsequent kiddos usually get the shaft picture wise after the first, this is one area that the new baby has the upper hand :) I'll have to remember that for when they're teenagers and he's complaining that J gets more or better, ha ha!

Been wanting to post more, but J's nasty cold & cough turned into a very high fever and after going to the doc yesterday evening... a double ear infection. G is gone this week for work, so it's been some rough days and nights. But I have give J credit for still remembering his manners. He told the nurse and the doctor thank you and when I picked up his script from the pharmacy he (in his lethargic fever state) told the pharmacist thank you before I even had a chance to!

Dec 19th could be the BIG day!!

Had an appt with my OB yesterday evening. She said everything is looking great and since I'm due so close to Christmas and had a great induction with J that it's on the table to schedule a possible induction for this baby! So we have a possible birthdate of Friday, Dec 19th for the little guy!

Granted he could decide to come on his own earlier or my body might not be ready for an induction by then. But still, it's exciting to think we may have a date that we'll get to meet and hold our newest baby boy! WOW, that's less than 2 months away!

Rainy Day and a Dr. visit


Today is quite frankly a chilly, yucky, rainy, dreary day here! J's cold has gotten worse so I guess if we're going to be stuck inside, it's best to be on a day like today. Luckily it was J's 2 yr check up at the doctors this morning. Besides his cruddy cold, all is well!

Off to a Wedding!


Consider this my 31 week preggo shot and a rare couple shot of us! G and I went to a wedding this weekend for one of his friends from Rose. We lucked out that they had it nearby so it was like date night for us (but with more people)! It was a nice ceremony followed by some good food at the reception. There was about a 3 hr gap between the ceremony and reception so we went out for a non-rushed lunch and did a little bit of shopping (we did get one thing crossed off our christmas shopping list!).

J stayed the night with G&G H and kept them and Aunt M busy with play-doh (DOH!), Blues Clues, jumping off steps, aquadoodling, and his other antics. He's a trooper though, he was starting to come down with a heck of a cold and still was in good spirits most of the time. Not so much today, once he was back home with mama and daddy he let himself be sick and it's been a rather long day for everyone. I hate it when he's sick, even if it's just a cold. I feel so bad that even though I try everything to make him feel better, there's really nothing I can do :(

Well, every night I say "Tonight, I'm going to bed early"... then somehow I look at the clock at it's 10pm and I should really go to bed! Not sure how I got into this habit, I was crashing at 9pm pretty regulary for the last 5-6 mths. So on that note I best log out and call it tonight!

So the big boy turned 2 this week!





Hard to believe it's been 2 years since our baby (now big) boy was born! He's a very interesting little guy... he can be shy but once he warms up he is such a showoff! He loves cars, trucks, cats, dogs, being outside, rolling in the grass, going on walks, reading books, and I dare say he might just be addicted to Blues Clues. He can be oh so lovey saying "aaawwww" and patting your back when you pick him up or hug him. He shares lots of hugs and kisses with his stuffed animals... and maybe just maybe sometimes mommy (but usually daddy). At the same time he can pester the dog like a sibling!

Good news is that I think he's as ready as he's going to be for the baby. He seems to adore babies, points them out all the time and is very concerned when he hears them crying on TV or something (tries to give them his cup of milk!). We're hoping for the best transition possible, with a few bumps in the road to be expected... but no doubt he'll be a great big brother!!

Anyway just thought I'd share a few pics of the birthday boy!

The Maiden Blog Post!


Hello All! This is my first post on our family blog! I hope our family and friends will bookmark this blog and let us share our happenings with you! J and I have pretty busy fun-filled (okay, tantrums and the whiny filled days sometimes too) days and with baby boy #2 (Dec 23rd) on the way it'll only be more crazy! But in a good way of course! My goal is to post at least a few times a week... with more than likely a snapshot or two (or ten!) along the way!

Sometimes it'll be about something funny J does, or new development updates on the baby, or perhaps just some random musings from the mama of these boys. Maybe we'll even throw in some stuff about daddy who is hard at work during the week, and hard at play during the weekends!

Give me some time to figure out this blog world and then I suspect we'll be up and running! Until then take care and I'll "see" ya again soon!
