I'm so bad about this...

It's been almost 2 weeks since I posted last, i've got to get better about blogging! I think about it every few days but just don't make myself sit down and do it! :o)

Things are going good around here and i'm starting to get really exited about the holidays and the baby coming. I can't believe it's already time to start thinking about this stuff!! Lexi's birthday is in less than 2 weeks, and I absolutely cannot believe she's going to be 2. It does not seem like 2 years ago that she was feels more like last week! haha! Colby and I are having fun getting everything ready for the party, he of course made the invitations and they turned out awesome. We've ordered the cake and now all that's left is shopping! We are going to try to take it easy on the gifts this year though since Christmas is so soon, plus we're going to get her something special when the baby gets here so there's plenty to look forward to. But having the party at Mr Gattis has made this the easiest party we've done yet!! I really have very little to do which is wonderful plus the room will be big enough that the people who don't like each other won't have to deal with each other!! :o) Works out great!!

Konner is getting to excited about baby Logan coming! Every few days he asks me if baby Logan is here yet, it's so cute. I finally told him that baby Logan won't be here till after Christmas so now he just reminds Colby and I all the time that baby Logan will be here after Christmas!! I just know the day after Christmas he's going to come is our room first thing in the morning and ask where baby Logan is!! haha! He still thinks we're having a girl...actually he told me that my baby Logan is a boy and his baby Logan is a girl! I'm not really sure how well that's going to work but that's what he figured out the other day. I love that he's excited about the baby coming, he's older this time so he'll have more fun than he did with Lexi. Lexi is actually doing ok with the whole baby idea too, she's become obsessed with her dolls though so that's fun. She's always carrying one of her dolls around and showing us her "bebe". :o) She's so cute!

I just can't believe I only have 12 weeks left till my due date! It does not feel like i've been pregnant for that long and now it's almost over. It's kinda sad because we've decided that this'll be our last baby so i'm trying to enjoy everything as much as I can. I am to the point now where I can feel more than just flutterings, I can actually make out arms and feet! It's such a cool feeling! I've really done a pretty good job so far of watching my weight with this one too. At the first of my pregnancy I lost about 12 lbs and so far i'm still have 2 lbs to go before I hit pre-pregnancy weight so i'm really excited about that! It's much different than the 60 lbs I gained with Konner!! I was a walking cow with him!! haha! I'm hoping I don't gain very much in this last trimester although I know i'll gain some, but I really want to keep it around 10 lbs or so. I've been drinking tons and tons of water so I know that's playing a huge part in it, i'm actually not retaining water this time!! Yeah!

But before the baby comes we still have Thanksgiving and Christmas first and of course i'm excited about both of those! I think those 2 holidays are my favorites out of the whole year! I love all the food at Thanksgiving and getting to sit around with the family and do nothing but eat! haha! That'll go great with my whole only gaining 10 more lbs huh?!? haha! I'm also really excited because this year for the first time since Colby and I got together we aren't going to be fighting with any family about when we're going to who's house!! We already have it figured out and everyone's ok with it!!! I think i'm still a little in shock that's it's all done already. haha! Colby's family will be out of town on Thanksgiving so we can spend the day with my family and to ourselves and as for Christmas we'll spend Christmas eve evening with Colby's family and Christmas day with my family! That doesn't sound like all that big of a deal but it's huge for us to have that figured out and not have anyone upset about any of it! I'm thrilled!!!

So even though we still have 12 weeks before the baby comes I know that is going to fly by! We have so much going on in the next 2 months and before I know it it'll be time for the baby to come. I can't believe i'm going to be a mother of 3! That just seems so weird! haha! I'm so excited but also very nervous...lets just say i've been spending alot of time praying for peace and patience! Of course when you pray for patience you're put in situations that require you to practice patience! So I guess with 2 toddlers and a newborn around here i'll have plenty of opportunities to practice patience!

Well since both the kids are sleeping I think i'm going to go scrapbook for awhile...

It's finally cold!!!

I am so excited about the weather today!! Right now it is 45f and the high for today is only 54f! I am so excited that it's finally getting cold, it's felt like summer way to long. I'm just hoping that it'll last now. We didn't get near enough snow here last year so I want tons and tons this year, plus the kids will have a blast going out and playing in the snow this year.

Well Colby went back to work today, he'd been off for a total of 9 days so it is a little weird not having him here. Poor Lexi really didn't understand why daddy was leaving so she had a bit of a hard time when he left. Poor guy actually started getting sick on Saturday, he'd been fine all week but on his last real day off he got sick. As nice as it's been to have him home it'll be nice to get everything back into our routine. I haven't been this thrown off in my house work in a long now i'm going to have to work a little harder to get things going again. But it'll work out fine, I have a little extra laundry to do and a few deep cleaning jobs to get done but then I should be back to normal.

We actually didn't get any of our big cleaning jobs done while he was off though-I hate that!!! It ended up raining a lot last week so we didn't get to the lawn or the garage, I really have no idea when we'll actually get another chance to get those done. Colby's off again on Thursday so maybe he can get the lawn done and then we can clean out the garage on Sunday when the kids are gone. Who knows... :o)

On Thursday we went and played tennis with my dad again and this time Colby got to go with us so we got some pretty good pictures of Konner.We really had such a great time and Konner is getting really good. It's so funny though because he always has his mouth open when he goes to hit the ball-as you can see in those pics! He has such a great time though and I think my dad really enjoys it too. Lexi and I end up running around the courts picking up tennis balls most of the time so she has a good time too. Well I guess I better get to all that catch up house work that I Was talking about, enjoy the pics! :o)

Overall update

I haven't been on here in a while-I think I start out most bloggs this way! A lot has been going on around here, first of all our computer broke down for a few weeks so that was loads of fun. Lucky for me Colby knows how to fix computer stuff so he had it up and running a lot sooner than I was expecting. Then i've just been busy with the kids and baby stuff so I haven't taken the time to sit and blog.

Ok baby stuff first....everything looks great so far! We had a sonogram done about 2 weeks ago and everything looked good, all the bones are the right size, the spine looks good all that stuff. The baby weighed 1lb 1oz which is a good size and the heartbeat was I think 147 so that was awesome. They also did a 3-D sono so that was super cool-when my scanner is working again i'll put some up. They printed off tons of pics for us to keep and even gave each of the kids their own picture...Konner loved looking at his picture of "baby Logan"! It was so cute!

I'm doing good so far, I actually feel really great...I don't even feel pregnant most of the time. Then of course baby starts kicking and I remember very quickly! haha I'm starting to get up off the floor a lot slower and I can't reach down to pick stuff up off the floor as easy but that's ok. I've also started to do a bit of waddling! It feels like i'm starting that super early but i'm not doing it very bad, just a little here and there after a long day. So far I haven't gained much weight...actually I haven't really gained any so far. At the start of my pregnancy I lost about 10-15 lbs so i'm slowly gaining that back. At my last doctor's apt I still had I think 7lbs to gain to be up to pre-preg weight, but we'll see at my apt tomorrow just how close I am to pre-preg weight now! haha

The kids are doing great as always! Konner is the most entertaining little boy in the world!! We got him a batman mask at the store a few weeks ago and most of each day you'll find him wearing it...along with his huge incredible hulk gloves and purple cape! He makes quite the super hero! haha He and I are slowly starting to work on school now, he knows most of his abc's and all the shape's and colors...all the basic stuff. I think we're going to get some pre-K books and start working on some of the other stuff...math and reading...all that good stuff.

Lexi...she is growing so fast! I can't believe her birthday is in a month! It's so hard to believe I have 2 toddlers running around my house! She is growing so fast and talking like crazy, she'll repeat just about anything you-or Konner-say to her. But it's fun cause she still has her own language that gets thrown in there quite often. haha! I'm really excited about her birthday party...we're having it at Mr Gatti's which is the kids favorite place to go. I think we've decided on a 101 Dalmations theme, now we just have to decide what gifts to get her. I always have to watch Colby around birthday's and christmas, he can go a little crazy with the gift-giving! Luckily I don't think we are going to get her pony stuff this time-we'll see if Colby can actually stick to that though. The poor girl has so many stinkin pony's!!! :o) But she does love them so that's a good thing...either way i'm super excited!

As for Colby, he's doing great! His job just seems to be getting better and better, he is doing so well there and it's wonderful because it's a job he absolutely loves which just makes all the difference in the world!!! Starting Saturday he begins his week of vacation!! I'm really excited, he'll have a total of 9 days off to hang out with me and the kids! This will be our first "vacation" time so i'm really looking forward to it. All we really have planned is a bunch of stuff around the house, we're going to clean out the garage-yikes!-mow the lawn, do odd jobs around the house...all that good stuff. But it'll be fun because it gives us a chance to actually get this things done. I think we've been needing to clean out the garage for about a year now?! haha Either way i'm looking forward to it.

Well now that i've written a book :o) I guess i'll get some more stuff done around here, Colby will be off in about an hour and I still have a few things to get done before I can just relax for the evening.
