Can I just whine a minute??? Please...pretty pretty please???

It's hot...like 96 degrees and it feels like 103!!!! My feet are swelling...so not attractive and uncomfortable. My back is killing me from my stomach stretching so far forward. My baby doesn't kick...it pushes as hard as possible against that growing stomach. I'm soooooooooo tired of wearing a bra...however I don't think the people at work would appreciate the girls hanging all over the place. More? Ok! I didn't sunscreen my legs or forehead Sunday when we spent ALL DAY at the water park...so ya naturally my sunburn on the tops of my legs really hurts...I'm turning green from all the Aloe I've been applying. The third trimester is kicking my butt...I'm so freaking exhausted!!! Seriously I've been in bed by 8:30-9 every night since Saturday :( My 4 year old has taken being sarcastic to a whole new level...honestly I think his goal in life is too try and be as cute as possible while being extremely sarcastic all at the same time.

Come on 9 1/2 more weeks I'm ready to feel "normal' (whatever that is ) again and meet that new baby!

THEN, there's the whole remodeling thing we decided to do with only 11 weeks til due date! Haven't mentioned that yet have I? Oh yeah so we're remodeling some space to make a new master bedroom suite...and giving the baby our room. So...painting is done in the new master and we won't start working on the bathroom part until fall or winter...but we still need to move into it so that we can paint and set up the nursery...oh and Rocky thinks he'll refinish the hardwoods in there too! I sure hope we can get this all done!!!

Ok...I'll quit whining now. Thanks for listening er reading :)

Mommy Guilt...It's normal...right?

Let me start off by saying that I am 100% already completely in love with our new baby and can't wait to meet him or her...however I'm having a slight feeling of mommy guilt.

Guilt for...turning my little boys world upside down...for making him share his mommy and daddy. He's been our #1 for the last 4 1/2 years...and honestly besides his father he is my best friends. (Yes I totally think a 4 year old can be you're best friend). We have so much special time just the two of us...our car ride conversations every morning and afternoon...our trips to the library...playing in the yard...our bedtime snuggle time...our Mommy Dalton days...when daddy's working on the weekends...I could go on and on and on! He's my little man and I'm just feeling a little guilty that he will have to share me.

Now I know that he wont stay little forever and he'll probably find someone else to call his best friend but I've truly treasured every moment that we've had just the three of us!

I also know that him having a sibling is probably one of the greatest gifts we as parents could possibly give him...I know I wouldn't trade my siblings for anything.

Ok...maybe I'm rambling now...I think I'm just really starting to get a little stressed and anxious for the new member of our family to arrive and we still have about 10 Weeks to go :(

Here's a few of the cutest quotes from my little man:

"The firefighters are going to be jealous of me when I get big and drive the fire truck"

At bed time last night "I'm sorry mommy for arguing with you"...Me"Honey we're not arguing" Dalton "I argued at dinner when I didn't want to eat"

At 3 a.m. he wakes me up because he needs to know what time it is (I think he's getting interested in learning to tell time)

Those are just a few off the top of my head the kid entertains me daily!

Oh and that new baby...we got to take a peak at it this week...it's measuring perfectly except it's legs are 2 weeks ahead...while watching it also reached down and scratched it's butt!

I totally think Dalton's going to have a baby brother :)

Well humpf!

My mind is going a thousand directions right now but it landed on one thing this morning. The sex of this baby. You see today was 28 week check up day. So the boys and I went into the dr. this morning (it's become a family affair) the kind doc was checking the heartbeat and said "wow he's moving around a lot" then said do we know if it's a he yet?" to which I replied "no" then she said do we want to know and again I said "nope"! So does this mean she knows and accidentally said that or was she just using "he" in general. So the question for you is do the ultra sound techs look for the sex even when you tell them you don't want to know and tell your doc in the report?

We do have another ultra sound next week...hopefully it's the last one...tomorrow is glucose test day and we are officially in the third trimester so that means doctors appointments every two weeks until 36 weeks! Hold of people it's getting so close!
