Wow, Do you see the 35 days left until this girl pops out?
I was complaining just yesterday that I had 80 days or so, but 35 just seems like too soon.
It's a month. Bostyn was 17 days early so I actually could be looking at 18 days or so. Scary but exciting. We just love her and talk about her all the time. Everytime we talk to her Bart complains we don't know her name yet, but we're having a hard time deciding and agreeing. I'm a little scared for the missed sleep (even more than I'm missing now), keeping Bostyn from attacking her, Zhoee from smothering her, nursing, and getting my body and emotions back together after having a new baby.
I'm not one for posting my pregnant belly (Kels) so maybe you'll have to come up for a visit and see the protruding belly for yourself. :) Maybe late April???

Strawberries and Coupons

We found strawberries on sale for $1 a 1 lb. case. I bought 12 and 6 are gone after 2 days. We've been eating them like crazy. OH, I crave them, they are so tasty.

Also: I haven't been couponing for quite awhile, so I got all organized and searched the deals and this is how I did: I was a lame-o carrying a calculator with me but I wanted to know what kind of good deal I was actually getting.
I should have spent around$ 76.00, but with store promotions and coupons (a big stack of 'em) my total was under $21.00. I was very impressed with myself.
I got 5 pouches of tuna, 5 lunchables, and 30 cans of dog food totally FREE. SWEET!

Yea for Birthdays!

Yesterday was Barts birthday and we had so much fun and needed a good excuse to play all day.
We had a yummy birthday breakfast, kidnapped Bart from work to go shopping for his b-day present and get ice cream, had a party at home with pizza, pop, cake and ice cream, and then to the park to fly our new kites. We had a fun day! Bostyn kept asking if it was his birthday party today! Sorry, kid, you'll have to wait for next month. Happy Birthday Bart!!!

Latest baby news

She's getting lower and I'm walking funnier. (My Dr. confirmed)
She's very healthy and looking good. She's weighing between 4 1/2 - 5 lbs. It hit me we're getting closer when the Dr. said he'd start checking me in two weeks and I got my packet to register for the hospital. :)

I don't know if it's the beautiful Spring weather or the "nesting stage" but I'm getting some major spring cleaning accomplished today. I mean dusting the tops of all the shelves and pictures, cleaning window sills, windows (inside and out), walls, and all that good stuff that never gets done. I just finished a room and thought it was probably 11am or so, I about died when I looked at the clock and it was 1:15pm. Where has the day gone? Darn day light savings, throws me off.

Hibernating for the day!

Zhoee was sick again this morning so I've decided I'd make her stay in bed and drink lots of liquids and rest. I made the HUGE mistake of teaching her how to use the phone intercom system to call me downstairs if she needed anything. Well, as I should have known, she "needs" something every 5 minutes, and I can't get anything done between the phone calls. The last call was just to tell me and Bossy to come up by her because she was feeling lonely. How sweet.

We think Bossy is the one responsible for breaking our camera so I really haven't taken any pictures lately. :( I did get this one of Bostyn is his common sleeping position the other day.

please excuse my mess: sheets are in the wash and laundry was being tackled (slowly)

Great discovery

Today Bostyn discovered that boys' can easily pee outside! He's facinated by this remarkable discovery that will let him stay outside playing without the hassle of coming in to use the bathroom! I just peeked on him throught the window while he was playing in the sandbox and he had his pants down working on #2. Seriously, I can't deal with poop when I'm pregnant, I gag everytime and Bart just laughs. YUCK, boys are something else.
