9 Weeks to go!

It really is mind boggling to me that I only have 9 weeks left. I can't believe how fast this pregnancy has gone. My brain definitely isn't ready yet but my body is. I feel like a beached whale already and my hips and sciatic nerve have been giving me troubles. Hopefully someday there will be a pregnancy that doesn't kill my hips or back. If I were to have the baby today and everything be normal and healthy, I would be ok with that. It would just be hard adjusting to no sleep. All we need to get are diapers and basically we are set. I have some new outfits for him that I'm scared he won't be able to even wear. They are newborn outfits that were given as gifts and newborn size is 5 to 8 pounds. Since Adam was 8 lb 7 oz it scares me that Zeke won't even be able to wear them! It makes me sad so I'm hoping for a little bit smaller of a baby this time. We will see if that happens though since I already feel huge! I just hope Adam adjusts well. He is already in the terrible 2 stage so I don't want Zeke coming to make him even more of a monster. It's a good thing he is so cute though. :) He is definitely way too smart for his own good!

I'm Terrible!

I told myself that on January 1st I was going to start writing on here regularly. Well that date came and went and I think I have just been lazy. I'm really mad at myself for not getting on here and writing everything down that happens. I want to be able to remember all the fun things that happened. I guess I can start now and hopefully be really good at it!
Most of you that read this already know that I am 6 months pregnant. We are expecting another boy on May 2nd. :) I will admit I was a little sad that it wasn't a girl. Out of the 12 grandkids on my side, only 2 are girls. Hopefully whoever is pregnant next has a girl. I'm already thinking ahead and am hoping our 3rd child is a girl! I have already gained so much weight and am kinda scared that I won't be able to lose any of it after but when this baby is out I am not letting myself stay fat. I will be better at what I eat after he is out. You just can't deprive a pregnant woman of sweets! It's just mean!
Adam is so big I can't believe it. He talks like crazy and is already saying little sentences. He is still a little over 3 months away from being 2 and he is already in the terrible 2 stage. He is way too smart for his own good. But it is so cute :) I can't wait to see how he will be around his new baby brother. Well I can and I can't. He is kind of a mama's boy right now but hopefully by the time Zeke comes he will be out of that. Oh ya, we are planning on naming this baby Zeke William. I was planning on Adam having the name Zeke but changed my mind at the last minute. I knew I wanted Adam to be the name of one of my kids but I thought the first born being Adam was more appropiate. No Zeke will not be short for Ezekial. I don't like that name. It will just be Zeke.
We are getting an awesome tax return this year so we are going to pay off 2 credit cards and our windows. Unfortunately our Jeep needs a new engine so we will have to get a loan for that. I'm hoping that we can roll that loan over into the Jeep payments when we refinance. We also need a new roof this year and get our yard planted with grass seed. I was able to get on my dads health insurance since we still can't afford to buy it ourselves. It's so awesome. In the end I will only have ended up paying like 500 dollars for the entire pregnancy! I'm way excited. We will also be getting a ton of money from the supplemental maternity insurance that we pay for every month so we will use that money to fix up our house and yard. Then after Zeke is born we will just buy an individual insurance plan for him like we have for Adam. So we will all finally have health insurance after a year and half! I wish we were getting more money so that we can get new carpet but that can wait until next years tax return. I'm so excited for all the things that are happening this year! I just hope they all turn out like we have planned! Well that's my update! I am going to try and be better about getting on here more often! Atleast once a week is my goal!
