About that time...


...and I want to change up my blog look before my little man arrives...so that means, I need updated pictures of my 3 adorable kiddos!

 I love the ones on my header from Christmas...but lets face it...they are 2 months old.

So...here is what I got...what do you think?!

Now to think of a new blog design....

Nesting?!


I organized and rearranged all the kids rooms yesterday. Went through all their toys and books. I organized and cleaned the playroom, put away miscellaneous toys and switched toys around.

I vacuumed all the fans in the house...cause personally I don't like seeing the dust that falls off the blades, as it spins. 

I got my hair done yesterday, and I love it. Cause you have to look beautiful when you have a baby....right?!

I vacuumed the whole house,though that isn't anything new, since I am a compulsive vacuumer.

I have my mind set on the hubby fixing the carpet shampooer today and shampooing the carpets. There is nothing like clean carpets...since we are playing on the floor everyday. 

My kitchen is cleaner than it has ever been and the baby stuff is cleaned and put away. 

We need two more things for the nursery and they are at Ikea (one of my least favorite places to go) and hopefully I will be able to pick them up sometime in the next week.

Laundry is almost done, except for the sheets (which will get done today)

Do you think I am a little excited for this baby to come...not to mention just about ready.

...and
I can't leave you without a picture. Here is Kenzie and I reading books...she is my little book worm!

Baby #4 - 34 Weeks


How far along: 34 weeks
{Chase was born at this gestation....CRAZY!}
Size of baby: He is over 5 lbs.
Total Weight Gain: 24 pounds {dang girl scout cookies!!}
Maternity Clothes: Minus a few shirts...I am pretty much living in maternity. My last (favorite) pair of jeans that still fit, had the button break yesterday. {guess that tells me something} As much as I hate maternity jeans, I am borrowing my SIL and they are pretty comfy!
Gender: Baby BOY! Here is our reveal video!
Baby bump: My shirts tell me that it is huge!

Sleep: Getting harder and harder. I think that your body does that to prep you for newborn baby stages.
Cravings: Bread and pasta, grape Icees and rotisserie chicken!
What I miss most: Sleeping through the night and being able to be 'mobile'
Symptoms: Contractions here and there, but we want little man to cook for a few more weeks!
What I'm looking forward to: Meeting my little man...less than 5 weeks!!

 Don't you all wish I wouldn't have chopped his name off the bottom?! 
I Mod Podged some blocks with baby boy's name on them, painted a hanging rack with adorable Mod Pod monkeys on it, finished his organizing his closet, washed all the blankets...I am on a roll...just about ready for the big day!

The Park in February!


 Who would have thought the high in mid February would be 40 degrees?!
We are loving it!


 No snow, but still chilly enough for mittens!

 My 3 LOVES!



He is such a good big brother!

She loves being outside!

So much for no snow...we got 4" of snow last night.
Our first plowable snowfall this winter!

The kids are loving it, but I am so over this crazy winter!

Did someone say GIVEAWAY?!


Thanks for everyone input on the sleeping situation. I am just praying right now, that this is just a {short} phase and she will grow out of it.

 She falls asleep in her own bed, then we try to comfort her in her bed, if she wakes up. She usually ends up coming in our bed, but not for as long of a time. 

I guess I am just going to cherish these days where she still wants to snuggle!

Cause really....how can I say no to a face like this??
