Just smile Jamey

Jamey looked so cute today. He loves to accessorize with hats. So I wanted to get a picture of him this morning, and of coarse he was being silly... so enjoy Jamey's photo shoot!

Feel my tummy daddy

So with this pregnancy, I have told the boys when Gracie is moving... so they could feel her move. So lately Jamey wants us to feel his tummy, or to watch his tummy... because the boy in there, is moving :) So the other night we were sitting on the couch and he asked Jeff to feel his tummy... and Jeff did :) So I got pictures of it.

Then Jamey wanted to feel Jeff's tummy to see if his baby is moving :)

WOW! You look like you are ready to explode!! I hope your baby's due soon!

As I was checking out of Sprouts yesterday, the cashier said these exact words to me. I don't know this lady, even if I did... I do not want to hear this. I am the one who carries this belly around, ALL THE TIME!!
I looked at her and said, no actually I am due in March.. just a big baby... and she says, "I certainly hope it's a big baby." Why in the world would anyone hope I was having a big baby????????
Mind you this is after I left my doctors office, where he told me.. I have gained too much weight with this baby. If I could I would have slapped him, but Jamey was in the room... and I am teaching him.. we do not hit!
I guess this in one of my pet peeves... I do not start off a pregnancy, saying to myself.. hmm.. I think I am going to gain a lot of weight during this pregnancy... and not a lot the next one. My body does what it does, and I do not have a lot of control over it.
With both boys, I gained the exact amount of weight with both. I worked 12 hour days on my feet with Caleb... eating healthy and getting exercise. With Jamey, I had problems from the beginning.. and I couldn't be on my feet a lot, and I certainly didn't exercise. I couldn't, it was a doctor's order. Yet, my weight gain was the same as Calebs. Explain that one!
Now with this little lovey I am carrying. I started gaining weight even before I found out I was pregnant. I couldn't understand why my clothes were not fitting.. I wasn't doing anything differently that would cause me to gain weight, Yet, I was.. and since then it has been non-stop. I am more active this pregnancy, then I was with Jamesjames.. yet here I am.. gaining to much weight!!!
I am convinced our bodies do exactly what they are suppose to.. we gain the right amount of weight for whatever reason. Would I like to be one of the skinny pregnant woman, who loses it before she leave the hospital?? Absolutely!!! But! I am not, and I have come to terms with that... I just don't want people telling me that I am a big fat cow!

Wonderful, Merciful Savior

Selah - Wonderful, Merciful Savior lyrics

Wonderful, merciful Savior
Precious Redeemer and Friend
Who would have thought that a Lamb
Could rescue the souls of men
Oh you rescue the souls of men

Counselor, Comforter, Keeper
Spirit we long to embrace
You offer hope when our hearts have
Hopelessly lost the way
Oh, we hopelessly lost the way

You are the One that we praise
You are the One we adore
You give the healing and grace
Our hearts always hunger for
Oh, our hearts always hunger for

Almighty, infinite Father
Faithfully loving Your own
Here in our weakness You find us
Falling before Your throne
Oh, we're falling before Your throne

Lyrics | Selah lyrics - Wonderful, Merciful Savior lyrics

I have listened to this song all week in my car... so much, that my boys can now sing along with me :) It has really spoke to my heart, and I wanted to share it with all :)

I am a terrible blogger

I am sorry, sorry, sorry. It has been since October. Where did the time go?? Anyway, we had a fabulous Christmas. We spent lots of time with Jeff's fam.. and my parents came into town. My dad ended up being sick the entire time they were here, so we didn't see very much of him.
Jeff has been off the last two weeks, so we have been super busy with family stuff. Trying to keep busy with the boys. We went and saw a movie, did the park, lots of play dates with family and friends... went and played in the snow. That was fun, and I loved watching the boys.
We also got a WII for Christmas, so the boys have had lots of daddy time playing that. Caleb is really good... and Jamey is getting better. We have to remind him, that he is ONLY THREE!
My pregnancy is going very well. SO well that the specialist doesn't want to see me for four weeks. I was seeing him every two weeks.. which I loved... cause I got to see the baby in 3-d each time. I can't tell who she looks like, sometimes Jamey and other times... I don't know. She is cute, and BIG. She is in the 69% for weight. I am not worried, I already know I have big babies :) My doc says to start jumping at 35 weeks to get her out, so I don't end up having a 19 pound baby. She is active, and running out of room, already :)
The boys are excited that she is coming soon. Jamey kisses my belly everyday, and asks if this is the day she's coming. He looks at his belly, and tells me to look at it, cause it's moving too.. and he has a boy in his belly.
Caleb talks to her everyday, and keeps asking if she's going to come on his birthday :)He loves watching my belly move, and gets upset when she kicks him :) I will post new pictures, and hopefully keep this blog updated :)
