We're Baaaaack...

I know it has been a long time but we are finally home and capable of posting let alone using the internet. We were in Texas for 9 days visiting my parents who just happen to live in the sticks in the middle of nowhere. At one point I even let Jack play outside completely naked for an extended period of time. Hey, if you are in redneck country you may as well embrace it right? Unfortunately I don't have any pictures of the trip but my mom does. So I will have to post those at a later date. Speaking of my mom, isn't she awesome? I mean, I know most of you don't know her but let me just tell you she is amazing. Jack and I had such a great trip and our time was full of special memories we will always hold on to.

As I mentioned above, I don't have any pics of our trip, I do however have some other random pics. And since this blog has pretty much become a random smattering of my ranting and raving I figure I should change it up with some visual stimulation. Don't get too excited, still no pictures of big momma. Maybe tomorrow I will have Michael test out his camera skills when I am all dressed up in my church duds. We'll see. For now, here are alot of Jack instead.

Ahh the discovery of peanut butter. It was pretty much what he survived on at my parents house. No wonder Michael said he looked chubbier when we got back! :)

The cleaning of the peanut butter face. No fun.

The cleaning of the boogers, even less fun!

Loves to crawl in the dryer but freaks out because he can't get himself out. You think he would stop getting in there?

This is down by the "river" right next to our house. And yes, that is a purple, satin doll stroller. What can we do? He loves it!

Daddy was blowing bubbles and Jack was so fascinated. He ended up swallowing half the pool trying to do it himself.

Daddy and Jack have a constant game of "I'm gonna get you" going. It really never ends but it is so cute and the squeal he makes is even better. (Jack not Michael :)

His counting skills are getting so awesome. He can count to ten but when he jumps in the pool he says, "on, two, free, DO!" Which translated means "one, two, three GO!" It's awesome to watch him learn so much. I love his little voice.

So not to make this a total blog overload but here is a quick update. As you all know by my baby ticker thingy I only have 5 weeks to go. I am freaking out a little bit but keeping myself calm by sewing up a storm. Thanks to good friends and family I now have baskets full of clothes. I am really excited to meet this little ninja but am also very aware that the reality of it all will really bite. Basically I am not disillusioned whatsoever like I was with Jack. I am bracing for the storm of sleepless exhaustion etc. etc.

Jack is awesome. He is the absolute love of our lives and he is completely fascinating. His language really has expanded and it's so fun to have conversations with him about all sorts of things. His memory is stellar and his brand recognition is a little embarrassing. Seriously, the first thing he does when I hand him anything is memorize the label of the product. It's ridiculous.

Michael has totally been my rock lately. He is the voice of reason that this pregnancy has taken away from me. He has been working out at the gym like a mad man and is looking so buff that I am starting to get annoyed! It's not fair that I am all swollen and waddling and he is all tight and strutting. Eh. At least he still has it. And really, I am determined to get it back too.

I guess that's enough for now. Hopefully we'll talk again sooner rather than later.
