Happy Birthday Grandma B.


We spent Saturday afternoon in Midway celebrating Grandma Bezzant's 80th Birthday! It was fun few hours. I was exposed to all the wonderful talents that Grandma has and was grateful for the opportunity to show our kids what a wonderful woman she is! I hate this picture of me but it is important to have for posterity sake!

Isn't this the truth...

I stole this from a friends blog but thought that it was hilarious! I guess we all live and learn. Enjoy!

Maternity Clothes:

1st baby: You begin wearing maternity clothes as soon as your OB/GYN confirms your pregnancy.

2nd baby: You wear your regular clothes for as long as possible.

3rd baby: Your maternity clothes ARE your regular clothes.


Preparing for the Birth:

1st baby: You practice your breathing religiously.

2nd baby: You don't bother because you remember that last
time, breathing didn't do a thing.

3rd baby: You ask for an epidural in your eighth month.

The Layette:

1st baby: You pre-wash newborn's clothes, color-coordinate them, and fold them neatly in the baby's little bureau.

2nd baby: You check to make sure that the clothes are clean and
discard only the ones with the darkest stains.

3rd baby: Boys can wear pink, can't they?



1st baby: At the first sign of distress--a whimper,
a frown--you pick up the baby

2nd baby: You pick the baby up when her wails threaten
to wake your firstborn.

rewind the mechanical swing.


1st baby: If the pacifier falls on the floor, you put it away until
you can go home and wash and boil it.

2nd baby: When the pacifier falls on the floor, you squirt it
off with some juice from the baby's bottle.

3rd baby: You wipe it off on your shirt and pop it back in.



1st baby: You change your baby's diapers every hour,
whether they need it or not.

2nd baby: You change their diaper every two to three hours, if needed.

Going Out:

1st baby: The first time you leave your baby with a sitter,
you call home five times.

leave a number where you can be reached.

3rd baby: You leave instructions for the sitter to call only if she sees blood.


At Home:

1st baby:
You spend a good bit of every day just gazing at the baby.

2nd baby: You spend a bit of everyday watching to be sure your older child isn't squeezing, poking, or hitting the baby.

3rd baby:
You spend a little bit of every day hiding from the children


Swallowing Coins (a favorite):

1st child: When first child swallows a coin, you rush the child to the hospital and demand x-rays

2nd child: When second child swallows a coin, you carefully watch for the coin to pass.

3rd child: When third child swallows a coin you deduct it from his allowance!

Pitter Patter...

I love the pitter patter of little feet...I can hear my kids upstairs playing with friends and it makes me smile. I also love the pitter patter of little feet inside my tummy...due to my addiction to orange juice, this baby has become quite busy. Last, I love the pitter patter of the rain that I can hear falling...it has been a rain/snow mix all day and though it is freezing, it makes me smile (at least for today). Not much else happening at our house...so that's as good as a new posts gets today!

We're Working On It...

When your two year old begs to "go potty" and will actually do it if you allow him to - I think that is a sign that it is time to at least take a stab at potty training. Austin has had almost a full day of no wet diapers and is now sporting his new Thomas the Train underwear. We will see how this goes but at least its worth a shot!

UNDER 100...

No, not under 100 pounds (in my dreams) but my pregnancy countdown is now under 100 days! I thought the day would never come - here's to the next 99 days of pure pregnancy bliss...or something like that.
