30 weeks!

I am so ready for March! Ready for warm weather and more daylight. January and February were so BLAH...which is why I haven't blogged very much. So now I'm playing catch up before the new month begins!

Me and Audrey on our last snow day (2/10/11)

Helping make Valentine's Day cupcakes

I've been trying to get into the lab to get my glucose screening done but something always seems to get in the way! Afternoon meetings, illness, ugh! I finally got up early on Saturday and went...only to get there and realize my lab slip was still at home. So I decided to take Audrey to Krispy Kreme for breakfast. She loved watching the doughnuts being made. When she was looking at the display case she kept saying, "Open it!" Then we went to Target to kill time before dance class. They were celebrating Dr. Suess's birthday, so we got a goody bag and she listened to Cat in the Hat.

I'm 30 weeks 1 day and feel pretty good. My feet don't seem to swell very much unless I have an extended day. I so look forward to hot showers and my heated mattress pad at the end of each night. It's getting so hard to breathe and if I sit for too long my ribs start to ache from being squished. I know this will go away when the baby drops, but that means I'll be waddling around and super uncomfortable when standing and walking. I hate to sound like I'm complaining all the actuality I love being pregnant and every time the baby moves I'm reminded of how lucky we are!

My next appt isn't until 3/'s been such a pain scheduling these appts b/c the latest is usually at 4:00 and that's usually when I'm leaving school! Luckily I work with an awesome staff that are happy to cover my class during dismissal time so I can leave early. I need to save all the time I can for when BB gets here! I'm really hoping to make it to our due date so that I only have to return for the last few days of school. There's no way I want to miss out on those, esp since I've been with my kids for 2 years.

Audrey, my sweet girl! I miss her so much when I'm not around. I just love her little personality and she's so good! She loves to listen to music in the car. When a song is over she'll say, "SONG!" and we have to find another one right away. She talks all of the time and I never get tired of listening to her. She's gotten so good at saying "please" and "thank you." Her smile completely brightens the room and I can't help but kiss all over her. I absolutely cannot wait to meet this next baby and see what new joys we get to experience. I really, really love being a momma!

It's the best, isn't it? And having two only makes it twice as good. :-)

I can't believe what big personalities 2 year olds can have! Mine loves to sing in the car, too. When there is a song he doesn't like, he says "I no like that one" and I have to find a new one STAT! Lol! Hope you continue to feel well! I am one week ahead of you! Take care!

Emma Kate loves to hear music in the car too. I love to hear her conversations, but she sometimes seems to have quite the bossy little personality- (Mommy, more music). It is so funny. Little Audrey just sounds like a doll :)
