Coming Attraction: Baby #5

I know it's been over a year since I sent anything out into the blogosphere. Life gets so busy and something fall WAY down on the priority list. For me blogging was one of those things. We will soon be welcoming yet another boy into our family. The ultrasound pictures were pretty clear so I would be shocked if this little him turns out to be a her. We're just adding to our collection of boys and all of the joys that come with them. I have been on modified bed rest with this little guy since I was a mere 20 weeks along. But now that I am only a couple weeks for "D-day" my bed rest sentence has been lifted! Ever since Sunday (so 6 days, if you can believe it) I have been having contractions and labor pains. There have been 2 times, once on Monday and the other last night, on Thursday, that we thought we might be heading to the hospital soon, but the contractions eased and here I am, still waiting. I don't particularly enjoy the waiting game. I get frustrated by the unknown! However, I had an appointment today with my midwife. I learned that I am dilated to a 2, I am 50% effaced and the baby is at a -3 station. I'm not quite as far along as I was hoping but at least there has been some progress. We are all getting excited and a little anxious to meet this little guy!
Here he is showing off his muscles!

Three for Thursday: Again

Hey look, I still have a blog!

I don't have much to say, but thought I'd play along with Evelyn and do a 3 for Thursday this week (I'm only a day late ;)

Three Facebook status updates from this week:
1. N/A
2.‎ N/A
3. N/A
(Hmm... looks like the last time I updated my status on Facebook was on February 10, over a month ago! At which time I wrote:
"I'm feeling icky today. I was laying down and Skyler (my 16 month old) came and patted me on the head. I said, "I feel sick." Skyler then left the room and came back a moment later. He rubbed some diaper rash ointment on my arm and declared, "Med-cine! All Be-'r!" Kinda Sweet."

Three favorite holiday candies:
1. Candy corn at Halloween.
2. Fudge at Christmas time
3. Hot lips (think Cinnamon Bears) at Valentine's Day

Three BIG plans for the future:

1. Have a clean house for more than 2 hours at one time.
2. Teach my 4 year old to tie his own shoes.
3. Go on a multiple day vacation with my children AND husband.

Three things I say to my children that I ought to mind myself:
1. "You're getting grumpy, time to go to bed."
2. "You've had enough sweets. No more."
3. "Talk about your problems in a nice voice."

Three things I want to buy with the Amazon gift certificates I got for Christmas (Which one? Which one?):
1. Brother Sewing Machine
2. Dining room set w/ 6 chairs
3. Twin over Twin bunk beds
(Yep, Amazon has EVERYTHING!)

Three pictures:
It looks like my computer, or blogger - is having a hard time uploading photos (attempt #3 failed.) So no pictures today :(
