Monday Mugs- Winter...

Living in Indiana winter means snow and cold. and when I say snow I mean SNOW and oh its BEAUTIFUL!!! (with the exception of the fact that I am almost 39 weeks pregnant and well I'm not so graceful with this big belly!) We got about 3 inches tonight so here are some pictures of that!

Oh I got a new camera for when Alastor gets here and had to try the panoramic thing this is the view from our front door....

Snow on the back deck

View from our back yard

Adlie telling her daddy all about the snow (yeah she is wearing sponge bob jammies she loves him eek)

This was a few days ago but we had about 3 inches then and the wind was blowing so much and pushing all the snow up against our house and this is what it looked like when I opened the door... looks pretty haha ( I can't wait until spring to paint that front door... which means painting all the outdoor trim and the garage door too but I think we are doing Cranberry on the door and brown for the trim and garage door..)

If you would like to join in the fun of Monday Mugs head over to Heather's blog and have fun!

I also forgot when it looks like that outside we are sitting in front of this.....

Yes there is stuff in all the stockings haha and yes if you count there are 6 from left to right Daisy(the cat hers is full of toys and treats!) Matt,Mine, Adlie, Alastor,and Matt's dad has a stocking too... Our tree is also stuffed full of stuff We aren't sure if we will do the whole Santa thing or not we may do him on a small scale because we want Adlie to know Christmas is about Jesus which she is learning this year thanks to my nativity she carrys around Mary and Jesus and it is so sweet to hear her say Mama where is Mary? Any ways I hope you all enjoyed the peek at Winter Here in our house!

38 weeks...

Well this week was interesting I ended up in L&D on Thursday because of contractions... by the time they got in and got me checked out the contractions all but stopped :( anyways since we were in at 7am they said I didn't need to come for my apt later that afternoon so after being up all night we came home and pretty much slept all day which was nice. I am noticing lately I am TIRED all the time but at night... The dr at the hospital said I was in early labor and it could be any time but here we sit 4 days later and I am still pregnant..and still having contractions on and off. I go back to the dr on Wednesday and I am going to ask that he strip my membranes (alittle TMI) to see if that will jump start things more. If not well by this time next week I hopefully will be holding our little guy because we are being induced on the 26th. I will update you guys again on Wednesday after my apt or of course if something happens between now and then...

Adlie is (ALMOST!)2!!!

Adlie went today for her 2 year well baby check. She is getting so big I can't believe 2 years ago I was this pregnant with her! She weighs 25 lbs and is 32 in tall .... (35% for both she has always been on the smaller side) She eats anything and everything but meat....(chicken and sausage are the exceptions here) She LOVES yogart and any fruit or veggie she can get her hands on! She STILL does not sleep through the night most of the time.... She Loves Mickey Mouse and Spongebob (where did that one come from?!?) She loves shoes she spends alot of time clacking around our house wearing my heels (she walks better in them than I do lol) She is so into the whole dress up and play house thing she likes to wear her tutus and my heels and a play apron and make coffee in her play kitchen! She is also starting to want to feed her toys (right now she uses a bottle with them but I have a feeling once Alastor gets here she will start copying me and try breastfeeding her toys) She talks all the time yep even in her sleep... last night she was laughing and talking about Mickey in her sleep which made me laugh too!One of the new things she does is goes to Matt and asks to hold his hand and then leads him to her room to watch a movie or play with her toys she is such a daddy's girl lately (Fingers crossed this makes for little to no issues with jealosey). I have been planning her 2nd birthday party since October and had decided on a Hello Kitty party (she loves her) but a few days ago I was getting ready to order her plates and cups for her party and she saw the Minnie Mouse ones and well now we are having a Minnie Mouse party! and now I have some more work to do! What ever baby wants baby gets I guess haha. Well for the past 2 days I have tried to upload new pictures of Adlie and it just isnt working... but here is the post about her I will try tomorrow to get the pictures up for you all.

37 weeks...

my growing belly and our new family member... I think I talked a bit about her in my last post but this is Daisy (Adlie named her after Daisy on Mickey Mouse Clubhouse) I am honestly not sure what "color" she is I keep joking that she is camo colored.... she is about 12 weeks old now and is just a sweet kitty.
On to the baby stuff.... I am 37 weeks (tomorrow) I went for my weekly check today and talked to the dr a bit about my fear of him not being head down so he checked and can I be honest that hurt worse than when they check for dilation!!!He had to push down on the top of my belly and then feel around my pelvis to see if he felt head and shoulders... THANK GOD he did!!! I have been so worried because when we watch my belly move and when I feel Alastor move I just can't tell if he was head down or not and I really want to skip a C-section if we can.... We are measuring right on and Alastor's heart rate today was 140 which is pretty normal for him. We talked a little about my scheduled induction for the 26th they may have me in Christmas night to get things started we will know more next week though. I have his bag of things packed and ready to go (though I just ordered a new diaper bag so I may be moving his stuff over to that once it gets here) I also got his baby book in the mail today so at this point I think we are as ready as we can be. I can't wait to see Adlie's face when she meets him for the first time. I will post again later about what is going with her she goes Monday for her 2 year check up! I cannot believe 2 years ago I was just as pregnant as I am right now! (I was also induced with Adlie on the 26th but she took her time coming out!)Well there you have it a quick update on how Alastor is doing and a look at my big belly!

36 weeks!

Seriously this pregnancy has been easy and gone by so fast (other than my hips lower back hurting all the time) ( also I am 36 weeks 4 days to be exact...) I go back to the dr on Thursday for a weekly check. We have set a date to meet Alastor if he doesn't come before then but it just so happens to be the same day I was induced with Adlie nearly 2 years ago... OMG my little girl is 21 days away from being 2! Y'all she is SO much fun she cracks me up every day and I can't wait to see her sweet little face when she meets her brother for the first time. I have Alastor's bag packed and I can probably be packed in a matter of a few moments if the time comes... For some reason I have this feeling that he will come on the 21st. That date will be 6 months from the day Matt's sister passed away after being in a car accident. It also happens to be a full moon. We will see Matt is hoping more for the 16th its so funny he is so ready to meet him that he even has Adlie pointing at my belly saying brother get out! We have almost finished Christmas shopping I have to just finish getting stuff for Matt's stocking and for his dad's stocking (we are going to have him over Christmas morning and have lots of stuff for him here so he feels like its Christmas instead of him at a empty house) I am finished for a while with bows which has been nice I have not made one bow it over a week! and I truly think my hands are thanking me!! I got a new camera because Adlie dropped mine on the hard wood floors a few months back and it just kept shaking and it got to the point it would not even shoot any more. I got the same thing I had before just the newer one with 14.1 mega pixels! I see a big difference from my 10.1! I don't know if I posted about William (the cat) or not but now we have a new kitty Daisy (Adlie named her) as you can tell our house and life is BUSY I will post again Thursday with baby updates and new pictures.
