But, it is a good thing that the past 20 weeks have flown by! I know these last 20 will go by fast as well... I remember being pregnant with Mason and thinking how bored I was and how slow pregnancy was. I have not thought that once this pregnancy until Mason spent 3 days with his grandmother. It was like time was creeping by... I am glad he is back now, because I do not have time to think about if I am tired or not. I also do not have time to do a lot of other things either, but at least he is keeping me busy playing cars and snuggling so I do not think about the next 20 weeks!

The day we found out we were having a boy we went to the Mall to buy something for Miles. We did it for Mason and bought him a sweet little monkey from PBK. I love that store and if I had the money I would do my whole nursery in it... But, anyways- We went into PBK for Miles, we came out with a super cool digger/ dozer for Mason... We would have bought Miles something too, but they did not have anything we liked.
He is actually walking backwards in this picture. He was running away and I told him to "come right back!" He turned around and said, "See Mom, Mason can walk backways!" I had to laugh, I know I shouldn't have, but it was cute!

I cannot say that I "wanted" a break, but it was "needed". There were just some things that I need to get done that I do not need 10 little cookie crumb fingers all over.
I have got to get the baby clothes down from the attic to get them ready to organize.
I am "needing" to get the yard sale stuff ready as our BIG neighborhood yard sale is this weekend.
We have so much stuff... I am in purge mode.
If we have not used, looked at or thought about it in 2 years or more it is going... Anything left over will be donated to the storm victims here in Murfreesboro that lost so much Easter weekend.
I also have 2 closets to clean out before all of this can happen too...
Mason has already been proven a pack rat. Everything we try to get rid of he tries to keep...
I hope I can get all of this stuff ready for departure, I hate clutter, it is bad when your attic is cluttered...
I also need to get out all of the baby gear such as the pack and play, swing, bouncy (what did they do with babies before all of this stuff was invented?) and all of that other un-necessary stuff that I think I need to have for a baby and clean it and put it in our freshly sanitized nursery.
I have some fun pictures to post if I can get around to it...
Are you "Spring Cleaning"? What did you do?

We are so excited... Mason might be the only one with reservations about it, we told him he needs to work on his sharing because his little brother will want to play with trains and cars too and he said, "ummmm.... Nope." But in all seriousness, he is excited. He talked about baby brother yesterday a few times. We are putting a very exciting spin on it for him- except for the sharing part...
Curt could not be more thrilled. I guess he was right, he is good at making boys... LOL! He was just beaming yesterday all day long after we got the news... He was telling me all the fun things they are going to do together and all the great times they will have... He is such a GREAT Daddy.
I am STOKED! I know I said I was rooting for a girl, but I really did not care either way. I like girly things and I wanted a girl to share those things with... But I could not be more excited about having another BOY! It really just seems natural that we would have 2 "rowdy" boys. As soon as we saw all of the healthy parts and that everything was on track for growth and development, I was in heaven when she said it was going to be a boy... So, yes, I would love to have had a girl but having a boy seems even better from where I am standing now...
Baby Miles, will be arriving sometime around the first week of September. He looks exactly like Mason did on his sonogram picture- I mean exactly! He has been moving a lot, which I am enjoying for the time being because he is still very small. But I am sure as he gets bigger, those kicks in the ribs will come with a bit of pain...
Can I tell you that I love my little family! Our life is so wonderful and I cannot wait to get Miles here, he will surely be the a great fit!
Floating on cloud 9,
PS- I am not one of those Mom's who cries and has a bad day because she did not get the results she wanted... It is my belief that God has a plan for my family and apparently it involves having 2 boys... You may have thought that since I was strongly opinionated about the fact that I wanted a girl, but that really is not me...
*PSS- I doubt we will be trying for a 3rd baby for a girl, I think the magic number 4 will be great for our family! Pregnancy is not my strong-suit, but I normally forget that after about 2 years... But again, we will see what life holds on the road that lies ahead...

If baby is a GIRL, her name will be:
Sadie Claire- we will call her Sadie Claire
If baby is a BOY, his name will be:
Jackson Miles- we will call him Miles
So, there you have it. The moment of truth is tomorrow morning at around 10am, I am super excited!
What do you think our baby will be?

Mason, my sweet little loving 2.5 year old has been less than helpful lately... Bless his heart (isn't that what we say in the south when we do not know what else to say?). It is like he is out to sabotage me. He un-does everything I do. EVERYTHING! So, I have been making chores like a game. It only works sometimes, but sometimes is better than NO times... He makes a daily effort to love on the "baby" and talk to it. The other day he said he wanted to call the baby on the phone... So he picks up the house phone and says,
" Helllo, Helllllo- Mary Grace are you there? Mary Grace, HELLLLLO! Mom, she not talking to Mason...."
It was the cutest thing ever. I have no idea where he got Mary Grace from??? I think he took "Mary" from "Mary Claire" which was one of my favorite baby names and "Grace" from "Ella Gracin" which will be my brothers new baby's name... Or, My freind Jess has a little girl named "Emma Grace". He is such a funny kid. I do not know where he gets the stuff he knows... But he is funny. Also, if this baby is a boy, I will feel bad, I have been calling it a girl most of the time... I am convinced. I did have a bit of doubt placed in my head about the (girl/ boy) thing yesterday. My neighbor asked me to turn sideways and said "Oh yeah, it's a boy!" Ummmm, ok, thanks... I need at least 2 more weeks to keep thinking I am growing sugar and spice and everything nice... Ha- not like that is going to change anything...
Well, that is all for now. Maybe some pictures will surface next week. Mason will be hunting eggs at our house on Saturday with some of my family and then it is off to church on Sunday for the BIG celebration of the RESURRECTION of our KING!

Go here to look at her fabulous shop... Check in on her regularly, she is always adding fun stuff...
Thanks Rachel! You RoCk!
I have been cutting all of my own shapes and it is VERY time consuming... VERY! The blog is neglected in a bad way... Hopefully some updates are coming soon... Mother's Day orders are flooding in so I have little time for anything extra...
We had a great weekend. This little butter bean inside of me is moving like crazy, every time I would lay down, it would kick me. Of course it only feels like sweet little flutters at this point..
Curt and I went to my OB appointment on Friday. It (the baby) was very active, so active it took a minute to get the HR, all you could hear was a ton of movements... Baby is super healthy so far and we are so thankful for that. I swear it is either the fact that I did not have a blog when I was pregnant the first time or I was super naive, but I am very paranoid this time around- about EVERYTHING!
My next OB appointment on April 23, we find out the sex of the baby. I can hardly believe that time is flying by so fast...
Sorry I do not have any pictures... This is why...
Me: washing dishes
Mason: playing with cars (or so I thought)
Mason: Cheese, say cheese froggy...
Me: Mason, what are you doing...?
Mason: This my crema- translation (camera)
Me: Thinking I knew I put it on the table... Surely not...
Me: Looking over at Mason who is man-handling my camera. His fingers were all over the lens, he had turned it on and taken pictures of the ground, the walls, his feet, me doing the dishes... ARRRRRGHHHH! I inspected it and there were finger prints all over the lens. I have no idea how I am going to clean it off. It is a very small area and hard to get too. I guess I will have to pull out the Q-tips....
So, no pics until then... Sorry grandparents...

So, in sillyness (is this a word?) sake, I thought I would post some of my all time favorite parenting tips... I am not sure how I acquired these little cartoons but they sure are funny!

Enjoy this video of Mason. It is pretty random, just wanted to take one of him. I hope you enjoy the little fit he pitches at the end...
