Full Circle......

When Roudy and I started dating I was 18 and he was 27. He was an OLD MAN! And, now I'm 27....... It sucks getting old! I had much cuter pictures of me and Roudy when we first started dating, but I couldn't get a very good picture of a picture (imagine that!)

Roudy and I- September of 2000
*I'm going to keep trying to figure out my scanner, I promise......

Daddy Gets Busted......

Remember my post a couple days ago about Trason helping daddy frame the basement? Well, Trason helped daddy all day on Saturday, too, while I was out running my errands (and getting rude notes from old ladies!) It was around 8:00 pm when Trason came in the kitchen with his hands on his hips and said, "Guess what, mom? Dad said shit a lotta times downstairs." It was so unexpected and Roudy and I burst out laughing. The moral of this story is: Be careful what you say because you never know when you'll be tattled on!

I Never Want To Get Old........

I went to the mall today and it was completely packed- nowhere to park, whatsoever. So, I see one of those cute little "pregnant mother" spots that I've been dying to use and I park there. The sign just said "reserved parking" and there was a cute little pink stork picture painted on the ground. I got out of my car, pushed my belly out as far as I could so people didn't think I was a liar, and went in to get my shopping done. When I came out of the Mall, I saw a note on my car. I just figured it was my sister saying thanks for bringing her a Coke earlier. But it wasn't. It was a note saying that I had broken the law and I was "Dumb." I'm sure it was some grouchy old lady who was mad because she thought I had parked in a Handicap spot. Let me tell you, my raging, pregnant hormones got the best of me and I was FURIOUS! I stood outside my car, looking around for some old lady to chew out and tell her she was the "dumb" one. I even thought about leaving a nasty note back to the person on my car, and doing a little more shopping. I really wanted to say my piece, but finally decided there was no way I'd ever know who wrote the note. I just hope that when they came out of the mall they saw the big, pink stork painted on the ground instead of the blue wheelchair that I'm sure they were expecting. All I can say is, MIND YOUR OWN FREAKING BUSINESS, PEOPLE!

Daddy's Little Helper

While Jaxon and Jordyn were at school yesterday, Trason decided to jump right into the working world and help daddy frame a few walls in the basement!

Baby Bump

My first baby bump picture, yay! Not the most flattering picture, but what do you do? I'm 11 weeks here if you go by the ultrasound date and 12 weeks and 2 days if you go by the first day of my last cycle. Judging by the size of my belly, I'm going to go with 12 weeks and 2 days!! :)

Jaxon's Surgery

Jaxon had his tonsils and adenoids out this morning at E.I.R.M.C. We're all glad it's over! Jaxon has been very nervous about the procedure and so has mom. Everything went well and Jaxon's excited to do nothing but watch movies and play the Wii for the next few days! The fact that he gets all the ice cream, Popsicles, Gatorade, and Sprite he wants doesn't hurt, either!

He's feeling pretty good, now! This was after they gave him his Versed
After the surgery- not feeling so great now!
Finally, going home!

Roudy has always done this thing to Jaxon where he kisses his two fingers and then taps his chest and then points at Jaxon. (I guess Sammy Sosa used to do it after he hit a home run?) Well, it totally embarrasses Jaxon and he'll never do it back to Roudy. We thought we'd take advantage of the fact that Jaxon was drugged and totally silly and have him do it. In the video, he gets so confused and can't remember how to even do it! Turn down your volume so you don't have to listen to my stupid laugh- remember it was 6:30 am! The second video is the funniest because he kisses his fingers and then raises his eyebrows like "Hey baby"!

Better Late Than Never...........

Here are a few pictures in random order (because I can't figure out how to move the pictures around once they are posted!)

Baby Update

It's been a crazy few weeks and I have gotten blog lazy! Lets start with the baby.......

I went in for my appointment on December 22nd to try to hear the baby's heartbeat. However, there was no heartbeat so we had to go in on the 23rd for an ultrasound (darn it!) It turns out I'm not as far along as I thought. We thought I was due July 24th, 2009 and now I'm not due until August 2nd, 2009. I know 10 days doesn't seem like much, but it makes it seem like I've been pregnant FOREVER! If the ultrasound is right then I found out I was pregnant when I was only like a week pregnant. How does that work? Anyway, we got the cutest picture of our little one! It looks like a little teddy bear with it's big body and little tiny arms and legs. Since we had the ultrasound on the 23rd, we called it our little gingerbread man. If I knew how to use my fabulous scanner, I'd post the picture......but I don't. I usually just take a picture of a picture, but for some strange reason it never seems to turn out very good! ;) I've felt great- I haven't been sick at all. This pregnancy is so different from my other 3 pregnancies and I'm wondering why? (But I'm definitely NOT complaining!) The only way I can even tell I'm pregnant is ..... I'm totally broken out, I'm always STARVING, and you can actually see my thighs getting bigger. The number on the scale hasn't moved yet (THANK HEAVENS!) but I've lost every ounce of muscle I worked so hard for. Oh well. I guess that's what happens when you're growing a human ;)

My goal is to get pictures uploaded from Christmas and Jaxon's birthday party within the next few days. We'll see how it goes.......
