Happy Birthday Sweetheart!!

Today is DH's 31st birthday. Happy Birthday sweetheart. We are so lucky to have you as a father and a husband. You truly are the greatest. DH has worked so hard over the last couple of days. I have been deathly ill and he has been great!! Not only has he worked hard all day, he comes home and works almost harder. He has been taking care of all of us. He takes the girls out to give me a break and then comes home to make dinner and get the girls bathed and in bed. I couldn't ask for anyone one else. He is the love of my life and I am so grateful that I have eternity to be with him. So, Happy Birthday my love!

As you can see from the sidebar, we are now in SINGLE DIGITS!! I can't believe it. I feel like all I do is talk about this little guy arriving. Bear with me for 9 more days. I do have fun pics of the girls from a couple of weekends ago that I will post someday. The camera is in the car (just in case). I will have to get it out and download the fun.
DD#1 has her first soccer game on Wednesday. I will take pics and post them. DH is her coach and she is so excited. We got her uniform on Saturday and the shorts she got went down to her ankles. We had to search around other teams for a smaller pair. Luckily, we found some and they go down to her calves. Her soccer socks go up to her armpits when we hold them next to her. We don't need to get her any shin guards because Dh could wrap the socks up and down twice over her shins to create some. She is so little. We are so excited for her. She is also very excited.
I had a false alarm last Thursday. My worst nightmare came true. I thought my water had broke and I spent all day getting everything ready with subs and such. To find out, it did not. The nurse was great and didn't make me feel like a fool. I think he is comfortable and won't come out without the eviction notice that has been given. Here is to 9 more days (and counting).

Catching Up (Again!)

I just looked at this blog and realized that it has been 2 weeks since I last posted. I couldn't believe it. Where did the time go?? I have been busy trying to scrapbook as much as possible, because I know there are a lot of pictures that come with a new baby. I want to be 100% caught up by the time he comes. Which, by the way, is 2 WEEKS from today. Oh my!!! Am I ready?? I had a dr. appointment yesterday and had a slight scare with my blood pressure. For a moment, I thought he was going to join our family yesterday. But, with a little rest, my blood pressure went down. it is a good thing and a bad thing. Good, because I don't want him to be too early and have to spend time in the NICU. Bad, because we just found out that we have double coverage until the end of April. What a blessing it would be if we could have him and be doubly covered. So, we are really hoping something happens this weekend.
Anyway, we are anxiously awaiting the arrival of this little guy. The girls are so excited and continually come up and speak to him through my belly. I did get a glimpse of how DD#2 may react. I watch two little boys age 3 and 8 months every afternoon. DH picked up the 8 month old and DD#2 about had a fit. I don't know if DH will get to hold the baby when DD#2 is around. DD#1 has promised that she is going to change the baby's diapers and feed him. I guess she will think otherwise at 2 in the morning.

Update on this little guy!!

I had a request to update you on this pregnancy that is coming to end very soon. Too soon somedays, but not soon enough, on other days. I am 35 weeks along. I have a scheduled C-section for May 6th at 7:30 AM. It seems so surreal to think that in less than a month, we will be welcoming our third child into our family. I spent some of last weekend getting the nursery ready. It was so weird putting away all the pink stuff and getting out some blue things. We are still wanting to paint, but that may take a back seat to it all.
As far as school goes, I am having a hard time not checking out with the students. I am pretty uncomfortable and tired. I think I only have like 15 school days left. I have all my sub plans done and copies ran. We are just waiting for our little boy to arrive. I can wait, as I don't want him to be too early and have complications. So here is to 4 more weeks.

Back, Sort of.....

Well, I have avoided posting on here because we still don't quite know what we are going to do with the internet. We are looking into cheaper options still. I will have to do a catch up post soemtime soon. I just wanted to share some recent pics of my dd's. This is Easter Morning and I love the love they are showing to each other. I thought the saying went perfect with it.

Also, here is a shout out to my Aunt Paula. Happy Birthday Paula! We love you!!
