2 weeks and counting

I didn't even look to see how long it's been since I've blogged.
It would just make me feel like less of a woman.
No, seriously.
I know women who say things like "I'm not going to start a blog because then when I stop writing as regularly, it will just be one more thing I've failed at."
And to those women I used to always say:
"whatever, that's ridiculous. Blogging is fun no matter how often you do it!"

And here I am.
One of those women.
I guess I should take my own advice yes?

So, I've got 2.5 weeks to go until this babe comes out. Did I already mention it's a girl?

Well, yes...yes, it is!
At least, for now.
We were told our first son was a girl too.......
so I guess we'll see!

I've been nesting like a crazy woman. Seriously. Painting things. Building things. Re-purposing things. Organizing things. Cleaning things. Pretty much doing anything I can think of to keep me busy.

Because let's face it, a busy mom means busy kids and I love it when my boys are busy doing things of their own accord (as long as it's non-toxic and fairly safe of course)
Thing 1 and Thing 2, aka Elliot and Caleb 

This pregnancy hasn't been the easiest, I'm not gonna lie. I've got vericose veins popping up in my leg (they're beautiful, let me tell ya) and migraines that have lasted almost a month (I've got drugs for this, it's just hard to take them when I'm supposed to be the responsible one....a drugged up mom isn't really the look I'm going for). I've gained more weight than I would like (please tell me you all know what I'm talking about here) and spend most of the night complaining to the hubs about how flabby my arms are or how I feel like I have a double-chin...and don't even get me started on the size of my butt these days. I'm so grateful that I've been able to carry this baby full term and incredibly blessed to have another child in the family.......but I just had to complain a little. I'm done now.

So, here's a random blog post for you. I'm sure you all have been sitting on the edge of your seats waiting for me to come back and post! Well, I'd like to think at least some of you were =)

Ok, I'm off to nest some more. I think I'll paint something once the boys go to bed.....

Thanks for stopping by, I LOVE your comments!!!


  1. It's always fun to stop by and read your blog!!!   I can't wait for this sweet little spirit to get here, I can see you are feeling the same way!  Be patient, hope you are feeling better.  Have you settled on a date yet??  Love you, Em!!

  2. Can't wait to meet the babe!  She'll be just as cute as her bros!  Before you know it, the little one will be in your arms!  Happy day that will be!  I love you Em!

  3. I've always said I hate the pregnancy part, but LOVE the baby part.  The good thing, the baby part lasts longer. :) And let me tell you, the least I've gained with a pregnancy was 35 lbs, but the most of 65!  That was after the doctor told me she wanted me to only gain 15-20 lbs.  Right!


I love your comments, they make me happy. I always reply to your awesomeness in the comment section, so check back!
