4:30 a.m.

And I can't sleep.  I'm about to have a Ladybug.  I don't want to go to the hospital, do you think I can get out of this one somehow?  There's got to be a way.  I don't want to be away from my little boys, I don't want to have surgery, and I really dislike hospitals.  Yes, I do need to get over it, I know.

Last night after Stinkbug brushed his teeth he said, "Mommy, make sure you don't forget your cell phone because I need to be able to call you and tell you how much a miss you."  I love him.  And I don't know how to make it through Friday without my Beetlebug's cuddles. 

Did I remember everything?  I hope so.  After spending an hour last night debating which outfit to bring for Ladybug I decided to bring 3 sleepers... one has ladybugs of course.  And then I got started on the blankets... so I just brought them all.  My suitcase it full to the brim, I hope I can close it.  Shaved my legs, and painted my toenails red, and now I'm ready (don't ask me why I know nobody cares).  Now I'm writing down our guesses for Ladybug's birth weight-- this is something for me to focus on other than the surgery so I'm going to bring that right along with me!  Yay for distraction.  I hope and pray for my own room... please???  I will beg, I'm not ashamed.

Now I just have to remember not to drink any water!  :)

Just for fun

I am so bored in this last week of waiting for Ladybug's arrival!  Maybe it's the sleep-deprivation, I don't know.  But I thought it would be fun to guess Ladybug's birth-weight.  So, I promise I won't be offended no matter what (it's not my weight)!  How much will she weigh?

Happy Birthday Sweetl Boys!

We had a little birthday celebration last night at my parents house. Just the 4 grandparents, my brother & his family, and Cole (Sugi was at school). It was the perfect place to avoid germs! I'm so glad they are young enough to not have expectations, they were thrilled with all the balloons and decorations and attention! C has been talking about his birthday party all day today, you'd think it was a big huge party or something! So if you ask C, he is 4 years old and N is 2 years old. Their birthdays are actually February 2nd and 27th. Oh, and I couldn't get the cardboard off the cake, that's why it is still on there! :)

The MOPS & Church Baby Shower

I just wanted to say THANK YOU for giving me a baby shower!  I had such a great time, and feel so honored for all of the thoughtfulness!!!  I have such awesome friends!!!


Well, since Lora posted the foods she likes & dislikes I thought I would do that too. Sounds like fun!

Sushi & miso soup
Fresh Salmon, broiled
Steak, Chicken, Cheese, duh...
Mexican food: Tacos, enchiladas, chile relleno, etc
Italian food: All of it!
Lentil, Navy bean, Split pea soups, & many more
Salad: No iceberg lettuce!
Chili: spicy
Chocolate: brownies, pie

NOT so Yum:

Would you believe I can't think of ANYTHING ELSE???
I love all fruits and veggies as long as they are not too ripe or over-cooked. Not a fan of packaged convenience foods but that's another story!

Blueberries in my brain

Munching on blueberries after lunch today...

C: Oh, mommy. You have to be more careful! You're eating too many blueberries too fast and they are going to get stuck in your brain! First it will make you sneeze 5 times, and then you will cough 5 times, and then daddy and I will have to take you to the hospital. And I don't want you to be sneezing and coughing because that means you don't feel good and I don't like it when you don't feel good, mommy. And then the doctors will have to take the blueberries out of your brain, which doesn't feel very good either. And all the sneezing and coughing are things I don't like. So please mommy, eat the blueberries one at a time and very slowly, okay?

...And the other day my parents came to get C for a few hours, and as he was leaving he turned around and said:

C: Mommy, I have to leave you for a little while and you're going to be OKAY. But if you get scared just call me and I can talk to you and make you feel better. But don't worry, I will be back in a little while and you will be okay without me.

Me: (trying to keep a serious look on my face) Okay, I will call you if I get scared. Love you!

Preg-mentally me

So I'm now 35 week pregnant (measuring almost 37) and having her in less than 4 weeks.  I have been wanting to post something new in my blog for two weeks but my brain is shutting down and I feel like such a moron because whatever I say doesn't seem to come out right!   Can I blame this on pregnancy please?

I wish you all a Happy New Year and I think about you all the time!  I am so glad to have friendships with all these awesome mothers who, like me, consider mothering and marriage the most important thing beyond our relationship with Christ!  Our culture is so ME, me, me... and mothering and marriage is definitely NOT!  That's why I love MOPS and how it brings us all together... because I know we all know moms who don't have the same priorities we do!  I know I'm a little obsessive-compulsive, protective, and very nurturing in my parenting style and some people think I'm a total wierdo and need to loosen up and relax but I won't!  I love my children too much to not protect their innocence and guide their hearts the best way I can!  

So anyways I'm thankful for your friendships and prayers and everything we get to share together.  I think about that a lot, and how much it means to me!

Here is my Birthday Cake for Jesus.  
It was very special and a lot of fun (although not the prettiest cake I've ever seen)!
Thank you Cindy!

I miss everyone, and look forward to seeing you all soon!
