Are we there yet? 13 days to go and I'm sitting home with a nice little bladder infection! If it's not one thing it's another! I wanted to take Brady to see Ice Age 2 today but Tony won't let me move! So I'm sitting here waiting on my ice cream order to arrive and hopefully some movies to watch! The good part is I don't have to lift a finger and Tony's apparently nesting because he's scrubbing everything in the house! It's killing me not to help but I guess I should enjoy it while it lasts. Soon I'll be the only girl in a house full of stinky boys wondering why I'm being punished!

14 days and counting! I went for my weekly check up today. I'm on the books for April 13th at 8am. While I was with my doctor she said she wanted to see me in a week if I make it that long. When the Doc said "if you make it that long" it makes me believe he's coming soon! I'm so excited. I was watching the woman today with her newborn. I just got so excited thinking of what the next couple of weeks will hold. I can't wait to see the look on Brady's face when he gets to meet his little brother! I'm trying to think of a good gift that Kaden can have for his big brother when he gets to the hospital. I believe Brady and Tony will be going to Build A Bear to make a gift for the baby. The nursery is finished and it is so cute. I'm still waiting on a poster to arrive from ebay. Then the whole room will be complete minus baby! Please keep my step brother and his wife in your prayers. They are going to become foster parents to two little kids. A 2 year old girl and 5 year old boy. They are hoping to adopt the kids if all goes well! I know God will bless them.

The wait game is starting to kill me! Last night I sat here for 3 hours having contractions. They weren't close enough to go to the hospital. Since it's so far a way I'm not willing to just run over there at any sign of pain. So, finally at about 11 I went to bed hoping that I would sleep a little bit. Today I'm really sore in my back and belly. I'm going to go to work for a couple of hours this afternoon but I'm sure I won't really do much! Last night I was actually bored. The baby's room is organized, Brady has new movies and could care less about what I'm doing and Tony was at church! I actually got my scrapbooking stuff out and put all of our zoo pics in and I made a gift for a friend. I go to the doctor again on Thursday. I would give anything for her to move up the date. She's still set on taking him on the 13th of April. That's only 16 days away but it seems like for ever!

What an incredibily awesome day! Tony's mom and grandma made it here safely. I had a baby shower this afternoon. And the best part of the day...Tony's surprise party was a hit! He kinda knew something was going on but not at all that we were having a party for his birthday! I guess cause it was so early! It was so much fun! Dad's BBQ was a huge hit. No leftovers. And the guys entertained us with great worship music the rest of the night! Thank you God for allowing us such an awesome fellowship!

FALSE ALARM! We'll where should I start? Woke up around 4am with serious pains in my back and belly. around 8:30 I called the doctor's office and they sent me to the hospital. Three hours later I'm sitting at Firehouse Subs eating lunch! Needless to say I was discharged as "undelivered" and in "stable" condition. Oh well...we'll just have to wait a little longer! At least now I'll have time to pack a bag and get the video camera ready! I go to see my doctor tomorrow and I'm hoping that she will set a date finally. I've been planning on the 13th this whole time but I'm guessing she'll move it up after today! At least my lunch was good! I was so hungry when we left it was all I could think of! I'm posting a cute new picture of brady at the zoo.

27 days and counting!!!! The ladies I work with held a shower for me today! It was so much fun and the cake was awesome! Is this becoming a pattern? I know...I love cake! They were so sweet to get me gifts. There were some ladies in the plant who got things for the baby too. That was so nice. Anyway, Kaden got lots of clothes and bibs among other things. Tonight Rachel and I rearraigned the baby's room to make it a little more friendly. She's working on a Curious George painting for the room. I also have two posters headed my way for the room. I think it's going to be so cute! Now all we need is a baby!!!! Tonight Brady is celebrating 5 straight nights sleeping in his new bunk bed!!! He friend Kierra is spending the night! Yes...a girl. He's 3...she's 5. They will be fine! They are in the back right now eating popcorn and watching a movie. Tomorrow we will be heading to the zoo for a birthday party! Yeah...more cake! I'm in the process of washing some of Brady's baby clothes for Kaden. I think I'm good on little baby stuff. Now I need to start collecting for winter! Show me where the sales are!!!

1 MONTH!!!!!!!! One month from today and we will have a new baby! Can you believe it's almost here? I think 10 people told me today that I won't make it that long. I promise everyday I wake up and I'm 10 times bigger! We had an awesome weekend. My friend Ami came over and helped paint Brady's room. Rachel helped clean out his old room and we moved him into his new "big brother room". My goal with this extreme bedroom makeover is to get Brady to sleep in his own bed! Guess what!!!!! Last night he did. Saturday night he ended up in my room at about 1:45 but last night he went to sleep in his new bed and didn't wake up until 8am! Can you believe it? What an answered prayer! Last night was the first time Tony and I slept in the same room in about 6 months! I'm going to have to get used to having him there instead of the little one! Baby brother's room is next. Ami is coming back over tomorrow night and we're going to paint the nursery! It's all cleaned out and almost ready to go!
After tomorrow night we can have a kid. I don't want to have him until the room is ready. Plus I want to get a few more things really cleaned out before he comes. I'm so ready for baby day to be here! I can't wait. God is blessing us more then you could ever imagine! Work is coming together...taxes are done...and I actually have energy! I go to the doctor this week and hopefully she will have an exact date for me! I'll keep you posted.

Today was one of the best days ever! Well, for this pregnancy. I woke up today feeling great. Lots of energy today. Then I went to my leads lunch and they had a baby shower for me! They had the best cake ever! I ate two peices. And believe it or not it's raining and I'm still having a great day! It's a cool storm today. The rain was actually hitting my car sideways! Now Brady and I are about to take a nap and sleep during rain will be awesome! I'm so excited...tomorrow night a friend is coming over to help me finish cleaning out the spare room and we're going to start painting it. On Saturday we'll be getting Brady's new bunkbeds. He's so excited. I hope this will mean he will finally sleep in his own bed! Tony will sleep in the room with him for a few nghts to get him used to it! I think he will really like having a new bed. And I will like not having him stuck to me all night! I end up scooting him over a million times during the night! I'll post a pic of the bed rooms when we get them finished!

Can I just say I have had the best weekend! Yesterday started with a brunch baby shower for my girlfriend Amy! We're due a week a part. It just really blesses me to have her as a friend. I got to meet some of her friends and family and I just loved spending the girl time out! Today after church Amy hosted a shower for me! It was awesome. 2 friends from work came and so many others! I am really blessed with the girl friends I have. Not because they all came with awesome gifts for Kaden. But because they all came to spend the time with me this afternoon! It was so great because not everyone knew each other but still it was awesome because the conversation between everyone was good. I love it! As for the baby...well I thought for sure last night was his time to come! I had several braxton hicks before bed and a few during the night. I've been really sore on the right side of my pelvis and it doesn't seem to be getting any better. It's still too early for baby. Please pray that God will keep Kaden tucked away for a little while longer. I want him to be healthy but also I want to get his room ready!!!!

I'm so excited!!! I have two loyal readers! Today I saw a friend in Walmart and she said she checks my site every couple of days! That's two!!!! Baby Brother and I had a check up today. His heart beat is 135-140. She said that was great. He wasn't too keen on the interuption of privacy...he kicked her when she put the dopplar on my belly. Since then he hasn't been to bothered with the world. I haven't heard much from the little guy today. However Big brother just woke up and apparently it was on the wrong side of the bed! He's playing with the russian nesting dolls that granny ann got us. He's trying to be like Miki! Tonight Tony and I will be going to see Third Day at the Fed Ex Forum. I can't wait!

I love the warm weather!!!! I hate my allergies!!!! It was so nice out today and I can't enjoy it because I have a stopped up nose and a sore throat! Just kill me now! Baby doesn't seem to be bothered by any of this. I will have to share how cute Big Brother is...last night he said...(sigh) mommy...can't you just cut your belly open and get peanut out now? How cute is that? He's so excited and so ready to be a big brother. I'm really praying that he takes it well. I hope that he never feels left out or anything. I'm so tired today and I am about to head off to bed.
