One week away

Well.... at least that is what I'm hoping for. We have narrowed down some names...but then right when we think we have one, we decidethe next day we didn't reallyl ike it. the end, we really have nothing. Although I do have 4 knitted hats waiting for baby to wear.

The countdown begins

Geez, I'm just not sure I'm ready for this baby.

We don't have any clue on the name....we have many things we need, but just haven't purchased them yet...I don't have the hospital bag packed...we still need another dresser...

I'm wondering if it is always this way with your 3rd? poor little kid...

I did find out though, that as of last week the baby is about 6 lbs. That's good, b/c it sounds low, but I still have 6 weeks to go!

geez...I'm still pregnant...

we are still in the dark as to the sex of the baby, but so far this baby has given' me grief! :)

The issue with placenta previa cleared up and the last ultrasound showed that the placenta was at least out of the way. I was thankful for that.

I recently found out however, that I now have gestational diabetes. Which, really is just forcing me to cut carbs and sugar out of everything that I eat. It hasn't been as hard as I thought, and slowly the cravings for sugar are subsiding. So far, aside from having to test 4x a day, it hasn't been bad....AND luckily I do not have to take insulin.

the other half and one son are currently looking for a minivan. We test drove several last night and I liked the dodge caravan, but as my brother said my husband, "needs to turn in his man card"

The summer hasn't been all problems though, we had a great time visiting the family in TX. The kids got to....

1) go to the Houston Zoo (yeah for indoor exhibits)

2) see the new HP movie (okay that was me, but it was still cool)

3) Paint Pottery

4) Shop at an outlet mall (also, me, but hey, they got a pretzel out of it)

5) Jump and jump at a place that was 12k sq ft of bouncy castles...coolest place ever....

6) swim at an outdoor pool everyday of our vacation..

7) Check out Kyle Field

8) Go to the children's museum

9) Go on a 1/2 mile hike where at every turn was dinosaurs....

IT was fact, I would highly recommend the Dinosaur Park in Cedar Creek TX. It is just outside of Austin. IT was great!!! The boys loved it and the dinosaurs looked so real. The T rex was , I swear, 40 feet tall.

In fact, here we are standing in front of a baby apatasaurus....

Okay...there is only one child in there... I think. This is me at nearly 24 weeks pregnant.

We have another ultrasound in a few weeks, just to make sure everything is okay. The dr said at the last ultrasound that I have partial placental previa.

I am really praying this resolves itself and I can still go to Texas this summer with the boys to see my mom and stepdad. :)

5 months pregnant with our 3rd (the caboose!) Here is my new tankini swim suit. It's way better than my old maternity suit, which I am considering burning.

We found out today that we need another ultrasound, so we are hoping that things are all well.

oh geez!

I can't believe how many tantrums one nearly three year old can throw! It's really been trying. No kidding. Does anyone else feel like they are always telling their child no?? bummer. I am really hoping that this is something that he outgrows.

spring break?

We are only a little ways into spring break and we get SNOW? What's that about?

Both boys liked it. As you can see, they were using the garage for target practice. Those are direct hits with snowballs behind Josh. :) Even though we woke up with 3 or so inches, it was all melted by dinner time.
