29 weeks ya'll

29 weeks with baby girl........

I am kinda getting nervous because so far I have NOTHING done for baby girl. Well she has really great clothes and hair accessories.

Tucker seems like he understands he is having a sister. BUT in the next 2 months we have Halloween, His 2 year bday, Thanksgiving, Christmas and a little sister. This might be a little overwhelming when you are 2??

I seem to be growing more now days and I can probably say I am right there where I was with Tucker at the growing stage.

Did I mention we have a LOT of stuff to do in 2 months. I am going to get through Halloween first and then work on Tuckers 2nd bday because as some of you remember last year Nathan had the flu and couldn't come to the first bday party. HOW horrible right?? So we are throwing another big birthday party much like his 1st to make up for lost time with daddy. Oh and his Gigi and Memaw both had the flu too and couldn't come also.

In the mist of all this I need to Christmas shop and decorate and bake. I am thinking I wont sleep much in December

So I stop with all the list and be grateful now. I am VERY grateful for this baby girl, but man I sure do know how to plan it at a hectic time :)

I am outta work today at 12 to prepare for a nesting weekend...we are cleaning out the shop!! gag

Infant loss day

I am VERY blessed to have a healthy almost 2 year old little boy and even MORE blessed that I am caring a healthy baby girl due very soon.

However there are pains and losses that never go away. And today I remember and acknowledge Infant Remembering and Loss day. I will never forget the 2 miscarriages I had before I was blessed with Tucker. It was heart breaking and the whole situation made me appreciate my children and others who suffer with the same pain.

So today I pray for all those who have suffered with the loss of child and all those who are STILL struggling to hold a baby one day. Not a day goes by that I dont' realize how blessed I am and that I dont' pray for those who are struggling with loss or any issue.

Remember the babies today!!

Been a traveling

I spent the last 5 days traveling and relaxing. I LOVE going to Louisiana to visit and since I am going to be on non traveling duty soon this was perfect timing. We basically ate and let the kids run and play the whole time. It was sooo nice and relaxing and just what I needed before my life gets more hectic.

*We are preparing for Halloween. Yes Tucker has 2 outfits and we arent' sure which one he will be. One of them is a cutesy Giraffe. I wanted more year of a something adorable and Tucker wanted a year of being Woody from Toy Story. We shall see who wins.
*I am planning Tucker's 2nd birthday. I can't believe he will be 2 years old. I mean he acts two and thinks he is smart enough to be two...but seriously?? This year it is football themed. Although my favorite football team is having the WORST season in history we aren't going to quit on them now. I have lots of fun things planned.
*I am trying to start Christmas shopping. My only problem is I have NO Idea what to get anyone. I am wanting to have all my Christmas bought by Thanksgiving. This doesn't mean wrapped but I need it bought and ready...Thanksgiving is 4 weeks from delivery so I need to get started.
*The baby girl room has no crib, no furniture, no we have a lot of work to do. I am wanting her room finished by Thanksgiving as well. Party to show it off to family in town.

Oh and not to mention keeping up with the everyday things, work and following a toddler around. I am supposed to be anaemic....but who can tell when my mind runs 90 to nothing.

I have my 7 month appt on Wednesday. Can't wait to update yall
