A note to....

My rear-end:

Dear Rear-end,

You seem to have already forgotten the lecture I gave you at the beginning of this pregnancy. I thought I would write you a note to remind you. You do not need to grow during pregnancy. The baby is NOT, I repeat, NOT growing inside of you, rear-end. He is growing in my uterus...on the complete OPPOSITE side of my body. Therefore, it is my belly's job to grow larger. It is NOT your job to pack on the pounds with every passing day. There is no need to "even out" the weight distribution between the front and back side of my body. Please (oh pretty pretty please) stop this nonsense.

Much Appreciated,

Broken camera

Well, it is official. Our trusty old Canon point and shoot digital is dead. It has been a great camera and takes surprisingly good pictures (or maybe that's just the photographer...heehee). My hubby and I went on an awesome day trip to an island and had to buy (gasp) a disposable camera! We shall see how those photos turn out. My very first (yes, I'm bad) belly pic of the pregnancy is on there, so hopefully at least that one turned out.

As for a new camera: I've been longingly gazing at digital SLRs. My husband has been even eyeing them. But, it feels like SUCH an indulgence to buy one. Especially when it would be just a hobby for me, taking pics of my kiddos. What do you think...unnecessary indulgence, worthy hobby??? It is getting very close to decision time. The disposable camera pics are all used up!

Baby Boy

A few days ago we had an ultrasound and found out that baby #3 will be a little BOY! I am thrilled! As for my kids....well, here is there reaction:

Me: "Mama went to the doctor today and found out you guys are having a little brother"
Kids: "Mama, mama, we wrapped up in blankets like sausages" (apparently a game they were playing with their babysitter while I was at the ultrasound). So yes, apparently they are thrilled as well.... ;)

Other thoughts on having a baby brother, as said by N to his grandparents on the phone:
"It matches me! It has short hair like me"

And when I asked the kids this morning what we should name our baby boy:
A: "boy"
N: "Mary Legs"

????? Um, yeah, I'll go ahead and write both of those down on our "possible names" list :)

Trying again....

A LONG while has passed since I have last blogged...and I've been itching to do it again. I'm not promising ANYTHING...and I'm sure no one even checks this anymore....but I'm going to start out and blab about whatever I feel like and see what happens!

Today I went on a LONG walk....about an hour and a half with the kids and my pregnant belly. It is insanely hot here (as I hear it is just about everywhere right now). I am so amazed at how little exercise it takes for my heartrate to skyrocket, now that I am pregnant. The minute I begin walking up a hill I start breathing fast and can feel my heart beating rapidly. So, I guess it is my body's way of telling me that is enough. The kids were not too happy to go on such a long walk in the heat and therefore spent much of their time whining and picking on each other. Next time I need to remember to bring snacks and cold drinks. Ah well, at least it got us out of the house for a while!

About Me

I am a sinner who has been chosen by God and redeemed by the death and resurrection of his son Jesus. I am a full-time wife and mom, though I hope to someday return to my job as an SLP. I love photography, coffee, reading, and adoption. I hate to clean, but sometimes do it anyway!
