28 weeks!!



Michelle is about to pop! Just a couple more weeks! It's so fun to both be pregnant and consult each other on everything. I'm glad we'll have our kids so close so they can have a friend.

How Far Along: 28 weeks. Third trimester here I am! Only 2.5 months to go!
Baby Size: 14.8 inches(wow, long!), Chinese Cabbage
Total Weight Gain: 6-7lbs, but Jimmy is measuring right on schedule! 
Maternity Clothes? Yes and YES.
Stretch Marks? Still just by the belly button.
Sleep: Hard to do because my back hurts all night and the usual bathroom breaks. Oh, and constant restless legs and occasional leg cramps. Pregnancy is FUN!!!!!
Best moment this week: Getting kicked so hard it hurt. I know he's strong and healthy!
Miss Anything? Sleeping on my back, STILL
Movement: Steven laid his head on my belly to listen for the heartbeat. Instead he got a big kick in the face. It was awesome ;)
Food Cravings: Lots more salad and Arctic Circle Cherry Toppers! I ALWAYS want one!
Anything making you queasy or sick? Still meat once in a while. And elevators. I used to love the anti-gravity feeling, but now I feel like puking or passing out every time I ride one.
Gender:Still a bouncing boy!
Labor Signs: Possibly Braxton Hicks?  either that or just some serious random pains in my stomach once in a while.
Belly button in or out? Almost an outie. about 80% there. You can now see my appendectomy scar poking out.
Wedding rings on or off? On, but tight some days. Must remember to drink more water and move around!
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy but wow, watching Cars almost made me cry last night. EMOTIONAL. 
Body Changes: I have a bump that gets in the way of kissing Steven and also itches like mad from the stretching. 
Looking forward to: A family baby shower next week. and almost at a point where we can paint the nursery and then fill it up with everything!

Life is crazy and wonderful as it should be, thus keeping away from the blog!

Get ready for a long one!

Daxy and her daily ritual of either sunbathing on my desk, or screaming at us to let her out back to "play" with the birds.

Mumsy and Daddykins on a Sunday evening I think? They were watching a slideshow of our pets that I put together.

Playin' games.


Randy and is camera smile.

BLue seemed to be the color of the day.

The boys racing their cars down the stairs and as usual making a racket!

Mom and Dad's 55th birthdays (they are 12 days apart)

Neither wanted to fess up to being that old and accepting the cake.

Mom's winter flower in bloom





So much smoke!!



The flames melted the frosting it got so hot!

Dad bought a box of twinkies off ebay and shared it with everyone. SO delish! (mom wa excited, can you tell?)


Steven giving Dax "loves". She's TOTALLY enjoying it.


David and his cute girlfriend Andie

The freezing rain (a while ago) that made everyone's lawn into a skating rink

My valentines surprise. He even hid the flowers!

Our VAlentines Dinner was made 100% by Steven. He shoveled a good two feet of snow to cook us steaks (which turned out AMAZING!)

Dax showing the love.

One of our date nights "in" to save money for Jimmy who is already draining the bank account, and he's not even here yet!

Our neighbor's house caught fire and was completely gutted. A tractor came two weeks ago and leveled it. Now just a big hole in the ground :(


One of my other Valentines gifts. One can never have too much jewelry!!

Randy's Birthday! The boy just can't do a normal face for a camera.

I found this quote one day and loved it. So I made my own little printable that's now in a frame on our dresser. Helps me put things into perspective everyday.
