That's right folks I finally got off of my booty and started this process...because lets face it us moms are really the ones putting in all the hard work. We started about a week ago when I decided okay we're not going to wear diapers anymore (except during nap and night time). I don't think there's any turning back now. So each day when we go out and about we have our underwear on and I'm locked and loaded with a few extra pairs of undies and a change of clothes. He's doing pretty well too...he'll go a few days with out any accidents at all and then we'll have a day with a couple accidents. In my mind he has to have accidents so he can really get it. Anyway...I'm super proud of him and me if I don't say so myself. This is the one thing in parenting that I have dreaded the absolute most.
On March 28th my suspicions were confirmed...we were going to have another baby. Scott and I had decided to take a break from the whole baby thing consider I had had two miscarriages in the last year, but God had another plan. We were cautiously excited, but deep down I really felt like this time was different. I still have a hard time saying that because I feel like I might jinx something.
I'm almost 15 weeks along and if wasn't for my rapidly growing mid section I really wouldn't even know I was pregnant. I stay pretty busy and active so maybe I don't give myself much time to think about all the other stuff. This pregnancy is already flying by...so much quicker then Mason. Kind of scary because before I know it I will have an outside baby. We aren't finding out the sex this go around until birth. Mason seems to get that he has a baby brother/sister growing in mommy's belly and has already claimed it as his baby. No surprise there considering MINE is his favorite word.
Due date for CoccaNut #2 is Dec. 5th. Prayers are welcomed and very much appreciated!
This is too funny to not post. This goes without saying that Mason is Mr. Personalitly and enjoys making others laugh. Recently, he's started taking showers. Yesterday was his first day to take one with out Scott. While he was in the shower he's washing his body and I hear him tell me "Mom...I'm like a Dirty Little Ham" he kept repeating this over and over. I was rolling on the floor laughing and maybe this is just funny to me, but this really made me laugh. I finally asked him "who calls him a Dirty Little Ham" and he said "Papa does". I then called my mom and told her the story above...which she found quite funny too and could hear him scream "I'm like a Dirty Little Ham" through the phone. Side note: my dad has never called him a Dirty Little Ham...where does he come up with this stuff?!?! I sure do LOVE my DIRTY LITTLE HAM!
This weekend was pretty much a blur. Friday my little family and I had dinner at Ruby Tuesday and then came home and pretty much called it a night. Scott's always sooo tired on Friday nights. Saturday morning started off with a birthday party at The Gentle Zoo which was hot, but a ton of fun. Then after that party we some how roped Scott into going to our second party of the day...SCORE! Another dinner out on Saturday night and then me a sleep on the couch by 8:30. Sunday Scott played golf and Mason and I went to church. After church we went to Stephanie's and had lunch outside before it got too hot. A fun, but busy weekend. Next weekend we only have one birthday party to attend so a wee bit more laid back.
On today's agenda we are going to try to make it to the gym before 9:00 and then maybe a trip to the splash park. I need to dedicate most of the day to the SEVEN loads of laundry...UGH!
One more thing before I go...I'm 14 weeks pregnant!!!!
What Scott looked like after the Mavs lost last night
Hmmm...I'm a daughter, sister, wife, mother and native Texan. I've been married to my best friend and love of my life for over 5 years now. In 2008 we added to our family when our precious son was born in July...Mason Charles. I never dreamed being a mother would be this amazing. Just watching him experience all of his first have been unbelievable...and we're just getting started!
