Did you like my monkey???


Some day i will soon out grow my sock monkey... but for now we are about the same size... well I am fatter per my mommy.. wink !
Let me just fill you in on how i am enjoying life:

I love to eat (cant you tell???)
I am starting to COO at my mommy and daddy and SMILE...
(my rents think its so presh and sweet....)
I have mastered the pooping out of my diaper thang.. ( you should see their faces when they change me, thats what makes me smile , silly rents (pa-rents)
I am a great sleeper and starting to sleep all night long...
(i think i get extra kisses from MOM for that one ..wink)
I dislike car rides, i mean who likes being strapped down in a carseat anyways-- not me , Im a screamer.. sometimes it works and they pick me up , but sometimes i cry for a long time... sigh!

Other than that I am loving life...
and I love my mommy , daddy, brother and sea-ster so much

love Houston!

One more week....

One more week of baby # 3 pregnancy...
One more week of Pee'n every 5 min, literally 
complete  un -comfortableness
not being able to get comfortable at night/sleeping
hard kicks to the ribs
(although i will truly miss those moments inside me )
the unknown anxiety's
out of breath-ness from just walking up my stairs
pains from everywhere...
the systems of Pregnancy!!!

Im ready for my baby to enter this world so we can love him! I have waited a long time for him and i cant wait to see that sweet face and tell him how much I love him...
I just might not be able to ever put him down!!

Sometime july3rd he will be here!
We cant wait!! XO

The final weeks

4 weeks to go.. as to many it seems so soon as to me a lonnnnnnnnnggggg time..
Braxton hicks contractions hurting worse and worse
Pee'n every 15 minutes day or night
sharp kicks to the bladder making me stop and say "ouch"
My weekly emails from the baby site say baby H is about 5 pounds give or take and 19 inches long
That because there is no room now for floating in my uterus i wont feel as many summer Saults or kicks!
He kicks more! 
Chad and I watch my belly move all over... a few video's for remembrance as hes our LAST...  yep! 
Mama is done! Ill be 31, June 17, 2011 and theres a reason people say have your kids while your young, young like 25 young.. 
Takes a lot out of you ... although i never thru up and only felt crappy for a month, the bigger the belly gets the harder it is to do things I'm used to doing, like putting on panties, yeah thats a site, almost falling over ..
OR.....getting out of bed, bath, pulling up my jeans , yes they are maternity but still, hanging window treatments(requires climbing sometimes)
constipation, although thats under control now
pee'n (oh already said that)
pee'n again
kick to the rib and bladder at same time
no sex life (whoops, my fault)

My Amazing husband has beeen a true trooper ... rubs my back and feet all the time.. always has something sweet to say when he knows I'm having a hard time or day.. We cant wait to meet this WILD monkey!
Lets just hope June flys by as quickly as May did...
Wish me luck!

He is Risen....and we found some eggs....

Kids and Uncle Nate swimming after an intense water balloon flight....

Someone (not mentioning any names) has to always make some sort of weird face...oh and yes bradley loves his under roos... hes bringing sexy back...LOL
6.5 months preg.... it keeps growing....
Can anyone tell me where the egg went?? anyone???

Yes dad we see you and thanks Ash for smiling! Your the best!! ha ha
Such a beauty! I just love this face!!!
um babe??? I think your so pose to be hiding the eggs, i still see them...

just love him...

All in all Easter was amazing.. Thank you Jesus for dying on the cross for our Sins.. and rising again so that we can be set free.... I cant wait to see your face , someday...
Easter was split between both families and we had the best of time!! Searching for eggs has to be one of the most exciting games essp when chad puts dog poo next to the eggs, and the kids run up to it with utter excitement till they see whats by it...
never mind....
good belly laughs thats for sure...
The food is always my favorite
(well now a days anyways)
and to top the day off with home videos from when Chad was a little....

I love my family and wouldnt change it for the world
Hope yall had an awesome Easter!

love ,

So I have about 90 days to go or 12 weeks!
Anxious as a Beeeeeee..
I'm at the point of feeling fat but not super uncomfortable yet... I sleep okay at night , but i waddle when i walk... ive gained extra cushion on my hips and booty, but luckily have spaired any stretch marks.
Thank you Jesus
Im anxious to see him for the first time, to hold him and snuggle him and kiss that sweet face..
to take his picture and watch him sleep...
I waited for you Houston for quite some time now and i cant wait to meet you..
Although you have givin me a few scares, i still want you to bake for another few months, I'm just hoping this time flys by!
Thats not too much to ask eh???
Oh your daddy is anxious too..

Making it mine

You can say "Im a blog stocker" (only the cute ones tho..) 
One day i came across a awesome blog with a girl that was very talented
I wanted to be like her...
Well have her talent , patience, and creativity..
Luckily to my benefit she posted how she made a beat up looking piece of furniture, look amazing..
step for step...
So i Do what i do best and Hopped on my comp,
to furniture than to Buffet table , nothing that caught my eyes! OH shucks! 
after about a month of looking i found her!! 25.00$ what a steal!!
Look at this beauty!

( This is tame , the WHOLE thing was this Awful BLUE cracked color, no wonder she sold it so cheap)
It took me 2 months to even start to strip it, do to lazyness! OOPS.. but once i start i have to finish... its the 
OCD in me...

So far I have completely stripped the whole dresser and drawers, she is such a beauty on the inside... I have fallen in love with her... i think she thanks me for freeing her of that BLUE hehe..
Heres a pic of what she looked like this morning.. She now has a dark stained top (such a great decision that was) and white primer (not shown in pic) on all drawers and bottom part of dresser, to get ready for her new color...

Doesnt she look amazing?? and completely different? No you cannot buy it from me, its not for sale... hehe
I know know why Shelby (new friend that gave me this courage) sells her re- done stuff for a pretty penny...
So far about 8 hrs on this dresser... if i find another item to re-do it will have no paint LOL.. saves me hair! HA
I will post the pic of her all done when she gets all done , hopefully by friday! 
Stay turned!

 "Love is...... everything it's cracked up to be. That's why people are so cynical about it...It really is worth fighting for, risking everything for. And the trouble is, if you don't risk everything, you risk even more."
