Hoppy Easter and such...

We had a wonderful Easter Sunday, although, holidays just aren't the same when you're miles away from your friends and family. I am trying to remember the last time we were home and celebrating with family for a major holiday, but nothing comes to mind. We've been back for 4th of July and Halloween almost every year but I think that's about it.

Also in this post.... Nicholas gets fat shamed...

Happy One Month Nicholas

Has it really been a month since Nick arrived? Time is going by so fast. Nick is starting to lose that newborn look and is starting to look more and more like a baby. I am trying to enjoy every precious moment since I know how quickly it goes by...

Home with baby...

Life could not be better. I am so unbelievably blessed to have two beautiful little boys. My heart is beyond full. We have been a family of four for 19 days and are happy to say that the transition has been a smooth one thus far.

Here is a little bit of what is happening around here...

Welcome Sweet Boy

Well, as promised, I am here to post about the birth of our sweet little Nicholas. It was a long labor and delivery, followed by, what felt like, an even longer stay in the hospital.

Zachary Turns TWO

Today is a very special day for our family.

Today our sweet little Zachary turns two!!!! When I look back on the past two years I am baffled at how quickly they have gone by. He has grown so much in these past two years.

Winter Melon; Week 38

I am feeling accomplished today. This past week was spent finishing up loose ends and making sure that we are ready for this baby to arrive. I am almost done preparing for all of my March birthdays - not including Nicholas, I have 4 birthdays to celebrate.

Another Non-Stress Test down and one more to go. Everything looked great. Nick has slowed down on his movements, so it's been taking longer to get what they'd like. We get there eventually and that is all that matters. I have another ultrasound and prenatal today, which will more than likely be my last since they will be inducing on March 9th, unless I go into labor on my own before then. We'll know more after the visit, since they'll be "checking" me today.

Large Cantaloupe; Week 37

Well, another week down and another week closer to meeting our newest family member. As excited as I am about meeting him, I am having a very hard time with the idea of having another baby. I cannot imagine loving anyone as much as I love Zack.

Needless to say, at 37 weeks pregnant, I am very emotional.

Canary Melon; Week 36

We had the greatest weekend with my family out in Palm Springs. I was beyond happy that we were able to make the trip. It is one of the things I look forward to the most and it never disappoints.

This week has been pretty uneventful otherwise. Now that we are home I am officially attacking my "To Do Before Baby" list, which is mostly just cleaning and organizing.

Pineapple; Week 35

What a successful week this has been! We finally got an answer on something that was holding us up. Once the answer came down, we went to work on our to-do list. We finished (pretty much) the nursery, pre-registered at the hospital and I even packed my hospital bag - I did this mostly to make Tim feel more comfortable because I'd been having Braxton Hicks that were starting to seem like maybe they could be labor contractions (in the end they were just Braxton Hicks).

We had another successful Non Stress Test on Monday and today I head in for another ultrasound to check the growth, fluid, etc.

Week 34? Week 35? Who knows?

Another week down.

There is so much going on around here, yet nothing seems to be getting done. I still have to pre-register at the hospital, pack my bag, wash some baby bottles/pacifiers, set up the pump, put the finishing touches on the nursery, and about a million other things. Zack is still using a pacifier for bedtime, which drives me nuts, yet not enough to do anything about it... and I feel like I should be doing some research on starting to introduce him to potty training, but right now, its all too much.

Honeydew Melon; Week 33

This past week has been full of ups and downs. While I have been feeling much better pregnancy wise, I was pretty sick over the week. Zack and I both battled a chest cold and we are finally starting to see the end of it.

We also had a visit from Tim's parents. We actually got the chance to celebrate Christmas with them and it was a fun time.

Head of Lettuce; Week 32

This week was full of ups and downs. If you read my last post, then you already know about my friend who lost her brother-in-law. The thought of it still breaks my heart.

Butternut Squash; Week 31

This past week was a lot of fun getting ready for the baby. We really moved on the nursery, finished pulling out all of the hand-me-downs, washed all of the laundry and we are well on our way to being ready for the baby to arrive.

Cabbage; Week 30

My count down has officially begun. I cannot tell you how ready I am to have this baby. I have officially hit the "done" part of the pregnancy. I think I was done around the same time while I was pregnant with Zack but that was for a completely different reason.

Ten weeks to go...
