Writer's Block

I have a major case of writer's block for this blog.  I'm still having a hard time finding my voice and trying to decide what to post about.  I do have a interesting life, but I'm just not sure how interesting other people would find it.  My life is full of ups and downs and for sure not just RAINBOWS and UNICORNS and I get tired of reading blogs where people only blog about the happy things in their life, but people blog for different reason.  With all that said I'll give you a run down of a conversation that the Mr. and I had this morning:

We all woke up around 7:00 this AM, Griff the dog is doing back flips for his 3 cups of food for the day and getting on my ever, last and loving nerve...I can't imagine if my three cats acted the way he did while they wait on their food.  They're a little more subtle...  Any who, I'm usually a get up and go kind of person, but every once in a while I can be a little sluggish and the morning was one of those morning.  I guess Scott noticed it because he commented more the once that I seemed a little on the tired side.  "Yes, Scott I am tired yes Scott I am in the midst of creating your 2nd son so every once in a while I might come off a little tired"...sorry about that hun!  In the middle of all this Mason is begging for me to make him macawholly...also known as mac-n-cheese.  Scott says "why don't you just make him some macawholly?"  "because Scott it's not the kind you just put water in and put in the's the kind you have to boil water for and it's 7:30 IN THE MORNING!"  He then tells me he's headed to the gym because it looks like I need a little alone time.  Thanks babe leave the tired pregnant mommy with her lets get this party started 3 year old!  Will they ever get it?!?!?

My Little Man!

This post is a little Rainbows and Unicorns so you'll just have to deal.  It's no shock to most that the last few months Mason has started to be a wee bit aggressive, i.e. lots of hitting and an occasional bite here and there.  Well, I decided to change my approach to parenting and stop spanking and strickly inforce time-outs for 3 minutes.  No judgement here if spanking works for you, but it was clearly not working for us.  It's been a month since the last spanking went down and Scott and I have noticed a signficant change in his behavior.  Today we ventured out to a playdate that I have pretty much avoided like the plague for fear of Mason being labeled "that kid"  and y'all he was such a dream hitting, no aggressive behavior and I only had to tell him once to stop doing something and my baby would listen.  I'm so proud of him and I make a really big deal out what a great job he's doing and I get the biggest cheese smile and wet kiss in return.  So today I feel like a successful parent who may have a little bit of an edge up on this 3 year old.

Half Way There

I'm 20 weeks pregnant with CoccaNut #2!  This morning is my 20 week sonogram where we could find out the gender of the baby.  With that being said, along I've said that I don't want to know the gender until birth, but here I am a few hours away from our appt and I feel like I'm going to crack...aaahhh!!! Someone please talk me down from the ledge!!!

I will be equally excited for either sex...all I pray for is a healthy baby. 

This pregnancy has gone great...I love being pregnant!!! I'm still amazed at how quickly it going by...kind of scary that before I know it I will have an outside baby.  I haven't taken any pictures of my bump...I've never been really big on that.  I'm going to try to get better at documenting the pregnancy, but don't hold your breath.

Well I'm going to go get ready for our appt now.  Please say a prayer that our little baby is developing just the way he/she should.
