Five years!

Five years ago I became the luckiest most blessed girl, I got to marry the man of my dreams! It's funny because back on our wedding day I knew I loved him more than anything, and I did don't get me wrong. But when I think back on these last 5 years and how much we've grown together, my love for him now doesn't even come close to what it was then. We've had so much growing to do between the two of us, and there have been moments that times were not fun at all, but I'm so thankful for every moment we've gotten to experience with each other! The last 8 months have brought out a new side of him that continues to make me fall more head over heels for him. He has looked out for and taken such a great care of me while being pregnant with never one complaint or grumble. Lots of times I have to remind him I'm not going to break or I can get off the couch to get my own water. I love listening to him talk to our sweet boy in my belly and I love finding him in the babies room just sitting in the rocker counting down the days till the baby is in the crib. On top of being a great and wonderful husband, he is going to be a great and wonderful dad and I'm so excited to see him hold his boy for the very first time! Oh Lord, thank you for blessing me with Mike. I praise You for bringing him into my life and I praise You that I get to spend the rest of my life with him!

Anything Like Me.....

Meghan found this song for me and within 15 short hours has become mine and Mike's favorite song. Brad Paisley just always does a great job at putting life in songs. Sometimes I really think he writes his songs specifically for Mike and me because they are so true of us :)  Here is the like to and also the words, enjoy :)

Anything Like Me by Brad Paisley 

I remember saying I don't care either way
Just as long as he or she is healthy I'm ok

Then the doctor pointed to the corner of the screen
And said "You see that thing right there well you know what that means"
And I started wondering who he was going to be
And I thought heaven help us if he's anything like me
He'll probably climb a tree too tall and ride his bike to fast
End up every summer wearing something in a cast
He's gonna throw a ball and break some glass in a window down the street
He's gonna get in trouble oh he's gonna get in fights
I'm gonna lose my temper and some sleep
It's safe to say that I'm gonna get my payback if he's anything like me
I can see him right now knees all skinned up
With a magnifying glass trying to melt a Tonka truck
Won't he be a sight with his football helmet on
That'll be his first love til his first love comes along
He'll get his heart broke by the time he's in his teens
And heaven help him if he's anything like me
He'll probably stay out too late and drive his car too fast
Get a speeding ticket he'll pay for mowing grass
He's gonna get caught skipping class and be grounded for a week
He's gonna get in trouble we're gonna get in fights
I'm gonna lose my temper and some sleep
It's safe to say that I'm gonna get my payback if he's anything like me

He's gonna love me and hate me along the way
Years are gonna fly by I already dread the day
He's gonna hug his momma, he's gonna shake my hand
He's gonna act like he cant wait to leave
But as he drives out he'll cry his eyes out
If he's anything like me there's worse folks to be like
Aw he'll be alright if he's anything like me

Of course I change a couple lines. If his heart get broken, I'll break the girl and also Little K just will never leave us, so the last few lines just don't fit at all :)

Doctor update.....

We are seeing our doctor every 2 weeks now, how crazy is that! Little K's arrival is coming so quickly :) Sweet Little one is still doing great, though, we found out yesterday the chances of me baking a professional basketball player is highly unlikely. Dr. Craig is a bit concerned by the very slight  lackage of growth I've had sense 2 weeks ago. He grabbed the ultrasound machine and started doing every type of measurement of Little K. Everything is measuring out great. Plenty of amniotic fluid for him to swim in, his head is greatly proportionate, the bones in his legs and arms are fine and his abdomen is great also. His measurements fit into all the normal ranges, just on the lower end of normal. So praise the Lord everything is fine!

 I don't know why though the appointment bothered me so much. I kept thinking about how I didn't like their was even a concern in Dr.Craig's mind about the baby. Also untop of being overly emotional lately, I just did a lot of crying yesterday convincing myself something was wrong with little one. After talking with my mom last night my concerns were put to rest a bit. She told me that her doctor was always concerned with all her pregnancies because she always measured smaller than what she should have been. Even to the point with me, her Dr almost sent her to a specialist because she thought I was going to be a midget! Well I'm far from tall but no midget. So I guess I'm just following after my mom in this area of pregnancy.

A few tidbits of pregnancy as of now:
  • Leg cramps and restless legs have begun (mostly in the middle of night)
  • Heartburn and indigestion make their daily presence. I have really come to enjoy taking Tums.
  • Little K has found my ribs and my right hip and really likes to play with them :)
  • The bladder seems to always be smashed lately, causing very quick runs to the bathroom at a moments notice
  • We get to meet our little guy in 7 1/2 weeks! Just knowing how soon it is we can take these "joys" mentioned above gladly because we will be snuggling him so soon!
  • Below is the belly at 32 weeks!

A little side note. The last 2 weeks at work have been very tough emotionally. I can't share, but I'm sure you could figure it out with me working labor and delivery. With two separate, but yet very different situations, I was reminded again of how God is truly our only stronghold we can cling to. I will probably never understand why the events of the last weeks needed to happen, however I'm so comforted in the fact that I do know the Lord and I know that through ANY situation He is still God. And for that I'm praising Him even with having a very heavy heart and through numerous tears, He is God and all the comfort I truly need!

Fall picnic

What a gorgeous day it was in the 'Ville today! Not a cloud in the sky and a perfect crisp fall breeze, also my day off from work. This all equates to a perfect fall picnic with my favorite family :) We swung by the Rolling Pin to pick up some sandwiches, soup and the greatest chocolate brownie and parked ourselves at the park for a couple hours!

This is how Gunner enjoyed our time eating, his little head shoved between our legs. He was so convinced we would drop something :)

The 31 week (7 months 3 weeks) belly. This belly has caused our walks to be a little slower lately. Mike understands completely, however, the pups just don't get why we go so slow.

My favorite boys! If you could hear the pups they were just crying because they did not want to stop at all. They had too much to sniff to pose for a pic :) I can't wait till Little K is in these pictures with my boys ;)
Soon after this picture was taken, Trig got a bit carried away with some of the geese. Well he ended up chasing them away as he dove into the pond for a little swim. He was in big trouble to say the least and had to ride home in the back of the truck! I was so heartbroken for the poor guy as that must be so scary (I don't think he minded though, I actually think he liked it). 
All in all, it was a great afternoon at the park and I can' t be more thankful that fall is finally here in the south!
