Yeah, I know....

I've lost your interest, haven't I? Not posting much and my little blog has become boring. I don't know why...I just haven't been spending much time on the computer. Too busy fluffing the nest, I guess. Exactly 2 weeks from this very moment that I type this, my littlest boy will be in the process of being born (or just a few minutes old). That's so exciting to think about and yet still so abstract.

So here's what's been going on with me. Last weekend I went out shopping with my mom and grandma (*waving* Hi, Mom!!). Grandma paid for a yummy lunch at one of my FAVORITE places to eat (Sweet Tomatoes) and Mom paid for me to get a desperately needed haircut. I had a great day spending time with them and getting out for a day. Little did I know that Sweet Hubby was working his little tail off at home....cleaning.my.entire.house! My house was frightening. Dirty, messy, cluttered....it was terrible. And I just haven't had the energy or strength to do anything about it. I cried about it because I was so overwhelmed and BEGGED for a maid. I wasn't sure how I was going to clean the entire thing (with the two Sweet Tornadoes following behind me) before the baby came. So he left the kids with my dad (Hi, Dad!) and went home and spent the entire day cleaning and surprised me with it. It really is clean. Not just the "It'll do because I don't want to do it" clean. But for real...couldn't (and wouldn't) have done it better myself! I feel like a brand new woman and I've been working MY little tail off trying to keep it that way for at least the next 2 weeks.

After much drama and anxiety, we finally have a new car seat. We weren't sure we were going to have anything to bring this child home in and Target was giving me panic attacks about it. But we have one and it is now ready and waiting in the van. I have the sneaky suspicion that we're beginning to look like a clown car when we go places....

Two cute stories about the Sweet Boys and the things they say...

They found a new pack of stickers they wanted to play with the other day. Zachary loves stickers. Loves them! So I opened the new pack and handed over a sheet. He promptly covered his entire upper body in the entire sheet of stickers. I quickly whipped out the camera...to which he quickly flashed his best smile and said, "CHEERS!" It's 'cheese', honey. Saying "Cheers" too much could get Mommy in trouble....

Stephen's apparently hearing impaired and I had no idea....he was staying with his papa the day Sweet Hubby was earning brownie points and he and Z were watching a movie. Papa was in the other room and Stephen hollered to him that he couldn't hear the TV. Papa told him they could hear it because he was in the other room and he could hear it. Stephen told him he couldn't and Papa asked why. To which Stephen replied, "My ears are too small!" Poor kid....genetics suck, don't they?

I'll try to be better about posting...my life just isn't that interesting. I figure it'll get a lot more exciting in a couple weeks...

Yeah, but in a couple weeks you REALLY won't have time to post! :)

Looking forward to seeing you this weekend! Wish I'd gotten time for the much needed haircut. I'm quite the bushy headed thing these days. And gray, because of not dyeing while preggo. Oh well.

I think you're just too busy living life to sit down and write about it---one of the reasons that I don't blog that often either. But when you do write, it's really fun to read :-) Not boring at all. And kudos to your DH for rescuing you from your messy house. I have a knight in shining armor who does the same thing. Doesn't it make you feel SO loved and well taken care of!!

ears are too little-- that's so funny!! how old is stephen? he sounds a lot like my #3-- he's always got really hilarious things to say. :)

2 weeks will be here before you even know it! i am excited to hear all about it!

i daydream of having a maid, but then i think about how i am, and i know that if i knew a maid was coming, i'd want to get things really clean first, so she wouldn't know just how unclean the house was before she got there. which would defeat the purpose of having a maid!

Haha, LT...you know the whole time I was begging for a maid and trying to think of ways to pay for one, I kept thinking about the things I needed to straighten and clean before I let someone else in to clean it!!

I think Stephen and your #3 are about the same age...Stephen will be 4 in a few months. It's so funny the way their minds work.

K, Kelli and KSL, can't wait to see you all this weekend! I'm so glad you all are able to make it down!
