Today is the day, well technically tomorrow, but Stephanie and Justin are heading to the hospital to check in to have the baby! They're going to induce her in the morning, and hopefully we'll have a baby sometime shortly after. It's nerve-wracking heading in to have a baby when it's spontaneous, I can't imagine it being planned and knowing when it's happening, eek! She's been on bedrest for 2 weeks though, so I think she's ready to get the show on the road. Having my own baby, I'm so excited for what's in store for them! It's such an incredible journey, not to mention it's a buttload of fun!! (The baby, obviously not the part about getting the baby here. O.O) We'll see what tomorrow holds, and hold it for ourselves. ;]

The parents-to-be. I'm sure they're filled with gratuitous amounts of excitement. Probably more excitement than their bodies have room for.

Stephanie sent me a picture of the baby's station in her room..yay, babies!!

Here come the solids!

Wednesdays are usually uneventful: I work, we get our weekly truck of freight, and work on putting everything away. It's sad what a routine I have: stock the shelves for cigarettes/candy with what we already have, put away new cigarettes and candy, put away film/frames, batteries, and put security stickers on the makeup and seperate it out. Go me! I'm a creature of habit though, and I hate change, so I suppose it works. Did I mention that I make the same lunch everyday? Bologna and cheese sandwich. Shoutout to my Grandma and Uncle Billy for getting me to love that more than likely disgusting concoction of meat byproducts. =D It's already been 4 months since she died..that's insane. Sometimes when I think of her I picture her sitting at home reading the National Inquirer, and think about calling her, only to be hit by reality. I miss you so much Grandma, I wish you didn't have to go. =[ On a lighter note, Sawyer is 5 months old, which means baby cereal! It looks like glue that would completely clog your throat up, but he seems to like it okay. He acts like he's been using a spoon his whole life, and loves to grab it and "help" you feed it to him. Messy, but fun. =]

He was obviously stoked when we picked it up at the store.

Pretty happy about the highchair, what a fun new toy!

Not too bad, kinda like thick milk.

Andddd, I'm done.

My two boyfriends

With a new set of wheels, and the spending money from the old apartment's deposit, I set out to shop. You have a much better attitude in a nicer car, by the way. ;] Sawyer and I hit up Ross and Kohl's, got a couple treasures, and waited for daddy to get home from work. It's funny how things come full circle; I used to count down until my parents would be off work, and now Sawyer and I do that for Kerry. That little boy's face just lights up when he gets home, and no matter what I'm doing, even if it's feeding him, he's gotta get held by daddy. I absolutely love it. Nothing in this world makes me happier than seeing the two people I love the most, love each other. Parenthood is such a rewarding thing. =]

Snuggling with daddy.

I love them both, even if they are both weirdos...

Pimp my ride!

After playing phone tag with the 2 insurance companies, it was finally decided that the other lady was at fault for my wreck, duh. Both my passenger doors were crunched, so I figured they'd total the car, it was only worth about $1500 on Kelly Blue Book, and it was in worse off shape than that quote. They gave me $2200 to FIX it..FIX IT! They're crazy. I took the money though, can you say down payment? They also set me up in a rental car, a 2010 Toyota Corolla. I was feeling pretty spoiled. I've never had any other car than the one I was in (a 1998 Chrysler Cirrus, by the way). As cool as a new car would be, I was sad to see "Whitey", as it was called, go. I got my license in that car, drove around Colby way too many times, made several TX-->KS trips, and drove my first baby around in it. Change can be good though, right? =]

I'm a spoiled lady. =D

Guess it's time to retire the bouncer? lol

Birthday Extravaganza

More birthdays. March is just as chaotic as October. In October, there's John (friend) the 2nd, Kayla (sister), the 3rd, Karter (brother..I know, what're the odds?) the 4th, my parent's wedding anniversary the 9th, ours the 10th, Stephanie the 11th, and now Sawyer the 25th. Phew! In March there's Kerry the 3rd, Nita (sister-in-law) the 4th, LeeAnn (sister) the 19th, me the 25th, and Justin the 27th. So woo, Happy Birthday to Justin! He turned 46 today, what an old man. About time to join AARP!! (He's really only like, 24 or something, but we like to make fun of him. =]) I know I worked today, I always work Sundays, but I don't know what else we did. I think this was the day Stephanie and his family made dinner, so we ducked out so they could celebrate as a family. (We later got in trouble for not staying, but we ensure that you'll never be able to call us party crashers!) I think we got him a card about farts though, so that made up for it. =P

What in the HECK mom?!?

Okay..maybe this isn't so bad...

Voila! That's how you babysit on the go! =D

Final Destination

Since Kerry worked yesterday, today was "my day" with him, since he had the day off. We started by going and picking up my crashed car from Denton, which had a dead battery, yay. =| Once we got it jumped we headed home, and I drove Kerry's car since mine was sketchy. I'm a weirdo and notice strange things (especially after seeing the "Final Destination" movies), and I saw that a truck's bedliner was kind of flapping in the wind. Pretty soon, the whole thing flies up in the air, and in front of me on the highway. Needless to say, I had to swerve out of the way and about had a heartattack, with Sawyer in the car with me again. I swore off driving for awhile. lol We got some MacDonald's for breakfast, and then went to a consignment sale. I love buying stuff for Sawyer, especially when it's cheap, and these sales have fun stuff. He got some fun toys, and some little board books. I think we ended up having some dinner with Justin and Stephanie, who was on bedrest at this point (set to have Jordan on April 1st), and called it a night. Minus wrecking my car and not getting to spend my actual birthday with Kerry, things ended up alright. =]

So many fun treasures. =]

I think they're retarded, but he likes the Sing-a-ma-jigs. They used to scare him, but he can't get enough now. We found a buddy for the one he already has..oh joy.

Happy Birthday to Me!!

Happy Birthday to me, stranded at home without a car! Kerry had to work, so I literally did nothing all day. Cleaned probably, woo! Once you hit 13, 16, 18, and 21 (the big ones), there's really not a lot of celebrating anyway. My first birthday with little man though, so that was nice. =] I think he took a decent nap, so at least I got a nap. Oh! Just remembered..not only did he sleep through the night last night, he slept an 11 hour stretch!!!! I made Kerry check on him before he left to see if he was dead. (Joke, I knew he wasn't..I'm a good mom, I promise!) Thanks for the birthday present baby. =D We hung out all day, and when Kerry got home I dolled myself up, dropped Sawyer off with Stephanie and Justin, and we headed out to dinner. Nothing fancy, just Applebee's, but anywhere without the baby is a treat..and weird. lol Since I was pregnant last year on my 21st I didn't get to have a legal drink, so I treated myself to a margarita, yum! I hadn't drank in foreverrr, so I got a little tipsy, oops. Drinking isn't fun anymore though, especially since I nurse Sawyer. Everything I ingest gets passed through my milk to him, so I had to "pump and dump"..not worth one drink. It was nice to get to spend some quality time with Kerry though. Have I mentioned that I love him?? =]

Mmmm, margaritas are delicious!

For a mom, I clean up pretty good, eh? ;]
