Update on Baby

Clearly I haven't been updating as often as I've liked. I am now almost 38 weeks pregnant and getting more excited, anxious, nervous, thrilled and about a million other emotions rolled into one. I can't believe he is almost here! I have almost everything ready for Ayrton but need to get a few more things back from friends and neighbors whom have borrowed things and I need to borrow a few things from friends and neighbors! Here is a picture of Lindsay and I at the lake 2 weekends ago. We are almost there. Her due date is on the 19th, so anyday now! My 37.5 week appointment showed that I am only a fingertip dialated and baby moved down ever so slightly into the pelvic region. Lindsay should be having her appointment today and we should see how much more she is progressing (last week she was 50% effaced and about 2-3 cm dialated!)

Lindsay and I at my house for a BBQ. She's 20 weeks and I'm 18 weeks! Can't wait to meet these babies!

Florida- belly shots

Rick and I took a similar picture when I was pregnant with Reef and we thought it would be a good idea to take anothe belly shot of the 2 of us. He really had to push it out this year! I am about 15 weeks in this picture.

12 weeks!

We are nearing the first trimester's end. Saturday marked 12 weeks, and baby is the size of a lime! I am getting more energy back and feeling less sick at night(and less nauseous all day, too.) Certain days I am still exhausted at night, last night for example, and I still needed a mini nap after supper to get by! I'm pretty sure it's from staying up so late this weekend with the girls!

I will upload a picture as soon as I take one for this week. I think I just have pictures from weeks 4 and 7 on the camera so far and I will upload those, too.

Lots to do on the agenda and preggo brain has already set in so I need to write things down to remember them~

I don't know about you mommas of more than one child, but I am already feeling this baby move! It is such a cool feeeling and I can't wait to feel it more. Lindsay and I were talking about this because she just hit 14 weeks this weekend and she's feeling her baby move more often as well!

As we traveled to Colorado this weekend for my girl Jen's baby shower we discussed that I was not updating my blog as religiously as I once had when Reef was changing by the day. Now that he's a big boy, I don't have as much to update, but at the same time, now that I'm ever changing, I am going to try to update about once a week.

We had a blast carpooling up to Colorado. Lindsay was a great chauffeaur as she picked Natalie up first, then drove down to pick me up and finally we headed down I-80 to the beautiful mountains of Colorado.

Friday was pretty lazy as we just vegged out and ate pizza at Sean & Jen's house. We got to snuggle with Burly, their awesome Wheaton Terrier.

Saturday brought more laziness in the morning as we got spoiled by Sean making bacon, eggs and toast. We headed to Chick fil a for lunch (yum, yum!) and then off to the baby shower where we stuffed ourselves some more! After the baby shower we were able to hang out with Lindsay's sisters for a couple more hours and then went shopping at Ross. It was another late night of talking and suggesting baby names for Jen's, Lindsay's and my babies!

Sunday was a sad day since we were heading back home. We had some bagels and fruit and then packed up and headed out. We picked up Jen's mom, Lucy, in Aurora, as she needed a ride back to Ogallala because Dennis, Jen's dad, had left the day before. It was another fun trip back, but it is good to be home. I can't wait to hear when Jen has the baby if it's a boy or a girl. She says she's 99.9% positive it's a boy, but I guess we'll find out in the next month!

Overall, it was a great time had by all. Too much junk food, but a good time!

Baby, Baby, BABY!

As most of my followers know, we are expecting again! I was 9 weeks this weekend and to be honest (and since it's my blog, I can!) I haven't been feeling too hot. Nausea off and on all day, and not so much morning sickness as evening sickness-I have only thrown up once though!

Baby is due Sept. 2nd, so we were lucky and got preggo FAST!

Reef is super excited and every night and sometimes mornings he asks, "So let's talk about what the baby's name will be!" He is nice to share his food with me and the baby, too!

Are we married?

Reef has been super lovey and curious lately. He has told me a couple times while we are snuggling in bed for his bedtime routine that he wishes he was the mommy and I was the baby so he could take care of me! I told him that he will be a super big brother when we have another baby and then he said, can it be baby Jesus? :) We've been talking about the Christmas story lately and that just made me smile!

Another day he asked "Are me married?" It took me awhile to think of what he was talking about. I told him, no, daddy and mommy are married, but you can marry one of your friends like Claire, Renae, Bailey, Sarah, etc. and he said, No. I guess I'll marry Callin. He really does love his neighbor Cal!

Out of the mouths of babes!
