Rambling at it's best

Went to visit my newest nephew and oldest nephew this morning.  Had such a great time visiting with my sister while I was there.  It's been nice to see her go through all this "new baby" stuff as a refresher course for myself. I am now of the mind set that Drew can hold off on arriving until 40-41 weeks.  I just forgot how much those little vultures want to nurse.  I now recall walking around with my boobs hanging out at all points of the day because there was really no point to get those bad boys strapped back in because be the time you do they want to eat again.  With all that said Owen is super sweet and Landon seems to be adjusting really well to his new role as Big Brother. 

I put Mason down to nap and he protested for over and hour.  He didn't nap yesterday and I let that slide, but today he had school and without a nap on school days means a beast of an afternoon for mom.  I finally had to resort to a spat on the leg and now he's fast a sleep.  I hate have to be mean mommy.

Made this and eating it right now...seriously like crack people!!!

Getting ready to pack my hospital bag...anything that you wish you would've packed that you didn't?

It's been a blast watching the world series, but my DVR is seriously backed up due to it.  I'm sure in a few months I can enjoy watching my shows while feeding in the middle of the night...good times!

Mason is doing a Scentsy fudraiser at school so if there's anything you would like to order please let me know.  It ends at the end of this week.  :)

I guess that's about it...I'm going to go make these now!

Top of the morning to ya!  It's Monday and foggy out this morning and MC and I don't have much going on other then calling our insurance company, buying paper towels and maybe just maybe stopping by Starbucks for a Salted Carmel Mocha. 

Most of you saw on Facebook that my nephew was born on Friday.  He is sooo precious and makes me that much more excited to meet Drew.  My sis delivered at the same hospital that I delivered Mason at and will deliver Drew at too.  It was nice to be there and kind of see how everything worked again. 

Here's a few pictures from my phone

Logistics of Baby Drew

This morning Mr.CoccaNuts and I were having a conversation about the logistics of getting to the hospital if I went into labor while he was at work.  With MC there wasn't much need for this conversation because I was still working and we didn't have a child or a dog.  We always planned on my mom driving me to the hospital if it happened at work because once upon a time we worked for the same company.  This time around I'm a stay at home mom with a 3 1/2 year old and a 1 year old destructive, can't leave alone for second chocolate lab. Things have changed a bit.  My neighbor would probably be able to drive me to the hospital, but there's a chance she may be out of town.  So...the Mr. left me this morning and told me to think about "the plan".  Why am I the one tasked with this?  I'm the one pushing the baby out...does he expect me do do everything?!?!  All of this talk above makes me realize how real this whole Baby Drew thing is becoming. 

And one more thing before I go.  I've gone to Target a couple times now in the last few weeks to buy nursing bras, nursing tanks, panties and a few comfy clothes to wear in the hospital.  For the life of me I can not figure out why every time I'm in that section I have a complete melt down, feel overwhelmed and take of running out of the store.

So it's been how long?!?!

So lets not waste anytime establishing how long it's been since I've blogged...blah blah blah.  So here I am.  We're all still here and kickin at the CoccaNut house.  October is almost over and the temps are finally falling...it actually feels like fall. There's not much on our agenda today because it Wednesday...I heart Wednesdays.  We'll probably go to Target to take a few duplicate items from my baby shower back.

Will start with a few pictures on my phone and then I'll tell you what going on with everyone.

Ready for school and so big.

I love stripes for babies!

State Fair of Texas cotton candy break.

Always working on something and always wearing his bike helmet.

Pumpkin patch in shorts and flip flops...there's just something wrong with that.

  • We went to the Fair this past Monday and had a good time, but it totally wore this pregnant mama out.  We spent a lot of time in the Midway this go around and less time seeing grown-up things.  Mason enjoyed every last minute of it and threw the biggest 3 year old fit when it was time to go.
  • Can't believe October is almost over and that November is approching fast which means that I will be 30 years old in just about 2 weeks. 
  • My What's for Dinner?!?!? Biz is doing really well and it kills me to do this, but this will be my last week of cooking before my newest bundle of joy arrives.  I told Scott yesterday that I just couldn't do it anymore and that I needed to go on hiatus for a bit.  More then anything I just want to soak up every last minute with Mason while we're just a twosome. 
  • Mason is growing like a weed and shows no signs of stopping.  I love ever little thing about him and his bigger then life personality.  Makes me so curious what little brother's personality will be like.
  • Speaking of little brother...he's growing like a weed too.  We're 33 weeks along.  We go to the doc next Tuesday and then we start going weekly after that.  I'm not quite sure where this pregnancy went, but it's just about over and I think I'm starting to get a wee bit nervous.  Everything is pretty much ready to go.  I will probably pack my bag sometime next week. 
  • Asking for prayers for a big opportunity for Mr. CoccaNuts!
Happy Hump Day Friends!
