The Last Couple Weeks (in pictures)

Leia and Marek (one of our local school's Foreign Exchange Students)
My first baby nephew's high school graduation *sniff*

Mr. & Mrs. Nathan Steele!


Fun! Fun! Fun!

Remember awhile back when I said that our baby must be a girl because it's very quiet and barely ever kicks???? I was thinking about that a few minutes ago when I had the laptop leaning against my belly and the baby nearly bumped it off.

Yikes! I think I might have another Gaius on my hands here.

Coming Home

These are what I've decided for our coming home outfits! Now all we need is a fully cooked baby! Oh yeah, and a name! I'm scheduling my c-section next week. It seems so odd to schedule a birth. We'll see if our baby cooperates.

Auf Wiedersehen!

Every pregnant woman's dream!

This maternity "outfit" made my day! I LOVE fashion! However, Maternity and Unitard being in the same item description is HILARIOUS to me, even if it is Heidi Klum's idea.

(This wouldn't be a pain at all to go to the bathroom, 800 times a day, in!!!)

SIsterly Love?

Xavier- Do you know what I'm going to pray for?

Me- What?

Xavier- That I get my own room soon.

Leia- I'm going to pray that you don't.

Is this not the exact picture of a sibling relationship? FYI they do play well together 78% of the time! :-)

What's New?

Notice anything different about my big, grown-up, girl? *Sigh* Here we go growing up again.
She was a little surprised by how painful it was. In fact, she was down right mad about it.
The things we girls do for beauty! :-)
When asked, she informed me that she would not be recommending ear piercing to any of her friends.

Since I have some new viewers I thought I should clarify something.

We do not know the gender of our baby!!!

But I do really want a baby girl!

A Little Before and After Action!


For some reason I always get a weird look when I tell people I want to paint something black. This time, I got THAT LOOK from my husband about painting the floor black. :-) I don't know why people question me on these things. I *think*, I keep proving my taste to be trust worthy.

Moral of the story: Don't mess with a pregnant woman with a vision!

Tell me what you think? I'll over look it if you don't like the black floor. :-)

Life Lessons

  1. Early June weather in NY is UNPREDICTABLE! The forecast looked hopeful when we left last Sunday. What we actually ended up getting? Not so much. (wind, rain, cold, 1 day of sun)
  2. Our favorite campground is being over-run by fearless, adventurous, skunks!!!
  3. Pregnant women need extra sunscreen on the 1 sunny day of the week.
  4. Frigid temperatures won't discourage 3 determined swimmers.
  5. There is still fun to be had even if the weather won't cooperate.

Just a few things we learned this week!

I wanted to leave you a little entry to hold you for the week. But my mind is going about a mile a minute and I keep jumping from subject to subject.

what do we need for camping --> almost completed, beautiful bedroom --> baby --> not following the pregnancy rules because I REALLY want to eat a sub (listeria, bah!)--> packing for camping --> why won't my bedroom floor dry? --> I'm hungry --> I really need to go jump in the shower --> better do some more laundry --> gotta get stuff ready to donate the the PCS garage sale --> need to run to the bank --> I'm tired --> gotta add bug spray to the camping list -->

So I'll just leave you with the very best highlights

1. THANKFULLY we aren't crazy enough to camp too far away from home, so if we do forget something we can come back for it.

2. My bedroom is fabulous and almost picture ready (I'm afraid you'll have to wait to see when i get back next week).

3. The baby seems to be doing great, jumping around like crazy.


and that's about it! See ya next week!

Holy Toledo!

It's June!!!!

Just thought I'd share! :-)

Update part 3

The weather decided to get humid (on May 31st, in NY= WEIRD) and our bedroom floor will not dry. So it looks like another day of camping out in the living room. *sigh* I'm bummed. Have I mentioned that we're going camping in 4 days? Yeah, I'm starting to freak out a little bit here.
