That baby/pregnancy ticker over there
and down a little
is really starting to freak me out!
33 days? Really? Wow!

I've been a little off the radar lately. Sorry. We have had a ton going on not to mention getting ready for baby number 2. I'm also getting some of Ethan's old things ready for Just Between Friends. Call me crazy but I'm not missing that sale unless I'm in labor! I'm not a die hard shopper much now that Ethan is getting older. I have a hard time finding clothes for him there (he ALWAYS finds toys) but I do make a pretty good chunk of change selling his old things. And what doesn't sell goes straight to charity. It's great! I highly recommend JBF. Skip all the other sales...they aren't worth it. JBF is the best!
I don't have any pictures b/c we've been too busy to take any. My days are consumed with a certain 3 year old and keeping him happy. That's been a struggle as of late. Ethan has always been a happy kid with a ton of energy. Lately, he's turned into a little stinker. He's constantly talking back, not listening, acting up and pushing my buttons. I'm really hoping this is just a phase and it will pass before his brother or sister gets here. Anyone have any experience with this? He's super excited about the baby and keeps asking when his sister is going to get here. Soon, little one, soon.
So random post. Maybe I'll have some pictures to share next time...

Just a few pictures I found on my point and shoot.

Ethan had an allergic reaction to something (probably a bug bite) a few weeks ago and his face puffed up. I felt so sorry for him. He could barely open his eyes or talk. Thankfully, the swelling went down after a few doses of Benedryl.
This past weekend, Zann and Casey went on a little fishing trip with my dad.

Sorry for the random post. Nothing much has been going on. We've been super busy going in a million different directions but nothing exciting has happened. I've started having contractions and probably shouldn't have gone to Ada Friday with the boys (although I did get to go to a scrapbook class with my mom). I ended up on the couch all day yesterday per my husband's order. My feet were like little marshmallows and I was having strong contractions. This heat is no fun but I should be able to stand a few more weeks. Sorry for the randomness. Hopefully I'll have something exciting to blog about soon.

4th of July

Happy 4th! Hope everyone has a safe and fun holiday! Always remember those who have sacrificed for our freedom...past and present.

Father's Day 09

I so wish I could take credit for the idea behind Zann's gift this year but I can't. I found it on one of the 100s of blogs I read. It was a little harder to accomplish than I thought. Sure the pictures aren't perfect but you try photographing a 3.5 year old outside when he wants to play, it's hot and he doesn't want to cooperate. But Zann loved it and that's all that matters. Ethan loves his daddy and I'm pretty fond of him myself.

P.S. The finished product is a horizontal 3 opening frame with above pictures...just in case you couldn't figure it out :)
