Final Doctor's Appointment

I went for my final doctor's appointment today. It's pretty bad when the nurses know your name without looking at your chart (I go to a very large office). The doctor had the nerve to say that he couldn't believe that I had made it this long. He really thought that I would have already gone into labor on my own. He also said that he really looked hard for a reason to do the c-section last week but just couldn't find a medical reason. I have lots of reasons to be thankful and I believe that it's all God's plan. I'm just at that miserable stage! For those of you that have seen me.....you know exactly why. I'm a sight.

Mom and I also had to take Owen to the doctor today. He is sick with the croup and he is soooooo grouchy. There is really nothing you can do except keep him comfortable with a humidifier and Tylenol. Hopefully, he will rest tomorrow and feel much better on Thursday when his brother is born. The pediatrician said to make sure and just have him wash his hands a lot. It's just that time of year.

The next time I post, will be after the baby. I'll be sure and post pictures.

The Countdown Begins

My doctor hasn't budged on the date (original date from 6 months ago). Wyatt is scheduled to be born on Thursday, October 25th. I am so ready! My sisters will be here to help (on Saturday) and the boys are so excited to see them. I welcome the help. Owen is really excited to meet Wyatt but I'm not so sure about Judd. He is having some issues. We aren't sure how to handle him much of the time. We are tired. It will probably get worse before it gets better. He senses change is coming. We are going to just try and be patient and understanding with him. I'm not sure what is going on in his 2 1/2 year old brain. Today is his official 2 1/2 year birthday. Kids are so different.

We are down to one car. UGH! We have feared this day. The van hasn't had air for several months. We didn't get it fixed because it has so many miles and we were wondering if it would even work next summer. Now it's the only thing running. Lucky for us, it's starting to get cooler. We are glad it was the car that quit because we all can't fit in it. We need the van. We aren't sure what we are going to do. We figure we will be home for several weeks and then we will have to make some decisions. We may have to be a one car family for a while. We will do what we have to do.

I will update with pictures soon.

Jedi Knights

Everything is Star Wars in our house. Owen and Judd can spend hours playing with their Galatic Heros and dressing up as Jedi Knights and Darth Vader. It's really quite funny. In the pictures above my mom had gotten them brown sweat jacket hoodies from Gap. To Owen and Judd the are Jedi Jackets. They dressed themseleves. Notice Owen's PJ's under his clothes and his Spider Man Boots. The boots were hand-me-downs from my cousin's son Parker. They are only for playing in the snow. I'm afraid he will want to wear them every day. He and I battle over clothes. He likes to match with Judd. If not, he is sooooo picky. He wants shirts with collars and no stylish jeans with holes (just like Brad). It's taken me forever to get Brad to buy stylish jeans!

I'm ready to have this baby. I'm praying Dr. Owen will do my c-section on Thursday. The baby must be huge and I am extremely uncomfortable! I try not to complain.....I'm so thankful for these precious boys that God has loaned me.
MY THREE SONS.....Owen, Judd, and Wyatt.
