I know...it's been WAY too long since I have posted. How am I going to have time to post with a baby, when I don't even have time to post now? Lol...

I have DEF. hit the tired stage of pregnancy. I used to be able to come home & vaccum, cook dinner...fold clothes, sweep off the back porch...whatever needed to be done! Now...by the time I get off work & get home I'm just ready to blop on the coach & rest.

I went to the Dr. last week...and he told me Ryder was transverse--which was my guess ALL along!

It has started to be a bit painful when he is up getting all up in my ribs. I find myself getting short of breath & just wanting to push him down with my hands. Dr. S said he really didn't care how he was until 36 weeks...which means 5 more to go! I go back in two weeks...well 1 now.....July 8th, so hopefully 2 weeks after that I can have another ultrasound. I have only had one... :/

The firehouse got new uniforms, which they put on & take off at the firehouse every morning, so I don't have to wash uniforms EVER EVER again! AHH!! How NICE?

Connie got us a high chair this weekend! It's so nice, I really like it!

It looks just like this! It folds up together so be put away in storage or something...and the seat also goes up & down so he can be table height or lower to the ground to watch tv or something! Ha! The seat will also sit up straight or lean back...AND there are two trays, one that you can just pop off the top to wash in the sink or even in the dishwasher! I was excited!

I started training a lady today to take over my position/job when I leave. It's a bit stressful b/c I have to explain myself & ever move & decision I made ALL day long for her to learn, but so far so good I guess!

AND...only two more days in the work week for me! We're off on Friday! Couldn't be happier! I hope to get somethings a/r here done...and maybe some more Baby Registry stuff. I started @ Wal-Mart.com tonight...but I'm sure I'll have to go to the store to update etc.

It's hard to believe Ryder will be here in less than TWO MONTHS!! From TODAY actually!! CRAZY!! I told Jake last week...10 more weeks, and it won't just be me & you any more! How strange!

I have started to look online for some birth announcement ideas...and I'll probably just have a local shop downtown recreate what I find!

We are so busy the next few weekends! FULL to the rim!

Ryder took his first swim in the lake on Sunday...we were out there ALL day after church. We didn't get home & in bed till about 11, but it was alot of fun, and I know he's ready to do it again!

GOOD NIGHT!--Jake's movie is over!

few updates...

-I'm starting to get to the tired phase #2...I can tell @ work & @ home. My feet hurt ALL the time. As relaxing as showers are, I want to hurry up & get out so I can just sit down & relax.

-As of a few weeks ago (I forgot to blog a/b it!) I officially have the usual linea nigra running down the very center of my belly!

-Ryder had the hiccups today for the first time! AHHH!! It's almost like a kick or a punch, but it's pretty constant...he did it a/b five times & then I finally realized what was going on! Sweet thing! =)

-It's getting noticeably harder to bend over, pull my knees up, get off the couch...etc. all those little things & it's only going to get worse! Sadly I try & make Jake do what I can ask him to do...but majority of the time, I just have to do it myself! Ha!

-On average, I am now getting up around 4 times to use the restroom in the middle of the night. & it's only going to get worse as he gets bigger! But that's okay though!

We had a couple from down the street over last night for steaks, and yummy potatoes & veggies that my wonderful chef husband made! It really was ALL him...I can't take credit for any of it, not even the bread. Maybe the sweet tea! HaHa! It went really well though...we have hung out with them before, but it was with ALOT of other people @ their house. They are expecting a little boy (Braxton) on July 30th--just four weeks before me! She is just so ready to have him..and I know how she feels, cause we are ready to see Ryder, and she is four weeks further along than me!

Jake has gone to look @ something over at a guys house...so I'm making him some brownies! Chocolate & Peanut Butter! YUMMMM!!

Two more days till the weekend! One more thing...

So...Thursday when I got home from work, and running to the grocery store for a few things, Jake told me to come look @ an outlet in Ryder's room...I went in there to find...

I was so happy, and so surprised! I cried b/c I felt bad...I had been nagging him all day a/b stuff he was going to get done this weekend before some of his stuff he was going to get done. I am so blessed to have such a sweet husband, who knows how much I like surprises!
Here's all the fabrics (minus the solid brown minky) The middle is going to be my curtains & bed skirt. The circles & leopard print will be on the bed with the solid brown minky.
The letter pictures again..you can kinda see the green behind the letters now...that match PERFECTLY with the walls, that I just eye-balled myself!
And this is what my Saturday afternoon looked like on the back patio! I lasted a/b two hours all together today! Not bad for a pregnant girl! Ha!

We're going over to my hairdresser's house tonight. Jake went to HS with her & her husband Brice. They have the cutest lil kids Macey & Jackson (Champ). They just bought a new house & we're gonna grill out. It should be fun!

I have also vacuumed, dusted, some laundry, & hand washed some dishes today! GO ME! I feel like I have been pretty productive, and got a lil color to my ghostly-white body!

I didn't update yesterday b/c I didn't go to bed till a/b 12! The latest in a LONG LONG time!

I met mom downtown & bought all the fabrics for Ryder's bedding! I went & visited Jake @ the firehouse, and then went & had dinner with Abbey & Kelly @ McAlister's.

They came over to the house afterwards & we had a really good time! Alot of catching up to do that was much needed! Neither one of them had seen the house so I was glad they got to see it, even though things aren't all EXACTLY where I would like them to be. But one day they will-ha!

Jake & I are going to have a Sonic date later on for the free rootbeer floats! They just seems like a good reason to have a Sonic date if you ask me! =)

I have more Thank You notes to right though...so better get busy!

1st baby "craft" project!

It was hard to get up this morning, but I got around, & headed to work. It was a good day though. We had 4 people out in the office, and 3 of their were in my area...so it was kinda quiet & felt slow, even though it wasn't with the phones ringing OFF the wall!

I had YUMMY Stoby's for lunch! Chicken salad pita! I don't like ordering take-out too much for lunch during the week. I would like to have leftovers everyday but when we don't cook the night before, I don't!

I went straight to Hobby Lobby after work to get some scrapbook paper (which was 50% off!) & some frames to finish/start Ryder's name craft project!

Jake cooked pot roast for dinner in the crock pot, and it was SO good! I should just let him cook from now on! Ha!--SERIOUSLY though! We are still drinking pink lemonade around here from the wedding, but I made some sweet tea for a change...that's something I CAN'T burn!

I'm watching The Bachelorette now...and SO proud of myself for blogging TWO DAYS IN A ROW!!

Few pictures to not make the post so boring...

This is the project I worked on tonight! I'm missing the other "R" b/c I haven't found it yet! They are just regular pictures of stuff that look like letters! I wanted to do this to be different of course, and i figure it's pretty modern & I'm really happy with how they turned out! They are laying on top of a fitted crib sheet the color his walls WILL be, hopefully very soon!
Here's a close up of the "R"--I love the frames, that I got @ Hobby Lobby, you can't tell but the layer b/w the green & picutre is like a cream & light light brown looking paper that just breaks it up a little. I was going to do brown paper where the green is but I figure that would be too much brown with the dark frames--& this will draw them to the walls!
Here's the mirror I found @ Kirkland's for 25 BUCKS! I was so impressed with my deal! & I really do like it, the brown, and again...MODERN. Hopefully it will go good above his changing table.

Good Night for now!
