I jinxed myself with the title of my last post!

Ya, totally jinxed myself. Pregnant again, surprise! We are 5 1/2 months along and getting a little nervous for his arrival. The first few months were pretty easy. I am lucky that I don't get very sick with my pregnancies. Once I started to pop my back pain kicked in worse than ever. I am sure it has to do with the fact that I have two toddlers to take care of too. Other than back pain I really can't complain.

I am totally going to have my hands full with 3 boys! I get very nervous when I think about it. Since this pregnancy was a total surprise with a .5 percent chance of getting pregnant on an IUD, I can't help but know that Heavenly Father knew that right now was the right timing. I wasn't even thinking of number three for at least a few years, but he knows me best and knows that I can do it even when I feel like I can't. There are many days where I question myself, can I really do this? Will I be able to meet the needs of all three of my boys? Will I be able to be a good mom even though I am exhausted? Will I be able to breastfeed with out feeling like I am ignoring my other two boys? Will I have anything to give my husband when he gets home after giving everything I had all day to the boys? The answer, I am not sure. It will be hard but I know with Heavenly Father's help anything is possible. I also have an amazing husband who is an awesome father and he always comforts me and assures me that I can do this and tells me that I am an amazing mother.

Though it was scary in the beginning we are very excited for another adorable boy. My son's are so amazing and I am the luckiest person to be their mother. Zach is so excited to have another little brother and constantly talks about him and how he's in my tummy. I know I am biased because they are my children but I think I have the cutest kids on the planet. I can't help but smile at them all day. I am so blessed to be a stay at home mom and watch my kids grow up.

9 months, that's a pregnancy!

Has it really been 9 Months since my last post? I guess having two kids now really kept me busy!
In July Zach turned 2 and in less than a week he will be 2 1/2! He is growing so fast! He is a full blown talker now! He knows so many words and each week his vocabulary expands. He is just the best little boy I could ask for. Right now he insists on doing everything himself. It can be annoying sometimes,especially if I know he won't be able to do it. I then decided to look at the situation in a different way. I am actually really happy that he wants to give everything a try and he isn't afraid of failing. He is becoming so independent but honestly I want to do things for him because he's my baby and as great as is is to see him grow It shows me that he won't be little forever. Some of his favorite things to do right now are building forts, doing puzzles, building castles with legos and blocks, playing angry birds, making Owen laugh, riding his power wheel, and there's much more. He is just an amazing happy kid and I love being his mom.
Owen is now 91/2 months old. Seriously, I can't believe that he will be 1 in just a few months. He is much smaller than Zach was at this age. He is15 pounds and Zach was probably 21. Owen was sick for this past month and lost some weight. He has C-Diff and a UTI and is on medication till Sunday. He is relatively happy and is doing much better at keeping his food down and eating larger amounts. He is such a happy baby and he is laughing constantly. It is one of the best sounds in the world to me. He has gotten really good at army crawling but has yet to crawl. He knows the crawling position but he just rocks and then falls to him tummy. Right now he really enjoys playing with his brother, army crawling everywhere, playing with toys, putting everything in his mouth, snuggling, baths, laughing, crawling under and behind furniture(especially our bed), and much more. I am blessed to have him as my son.
Tim and I are less exciting, our boys bring us great joy. Tim is busy with work and he is enjoying basketball season. The boys are keeping me very busy but I am loving that all the winter shows on tv are back. It has been really cold so it's hard to take the boys out to play. We are ready for spring!
