Kati, you're so silly. I'm up here in Canada right now. Just popped on before we go for a camping trip with the ILs tomorrow.
I'm still bleeding a bit. I've been trying to rest as much as possible and that is easy with MIL because she's awesome with the boys. I still pick up Sam way too much. I'm not supposed to be lifting anything, but he's just so dang cute when he wants his mommy.
I need to schedule my next u/s. I keep forgetting to do that. EEK!
I think we're going to let it be a surprise this time.
I keep worrying about this baby. I can't help it. I'm a mom. I guess that's my job.
I hate this in between stage. I just look chunky. I want to look pregnant so people will undertand my chunkiness.
14 weeks 5 days.
I feel good nausea-wise lately. The bleeding makes me crazy though. *SIGH* The last u/s was so nice. I got to see the baby moving around. Hands, feet, spine, no sign of a hot dog...but the tech said it's too early to tell...I'm glad, because I didn't want her to look, but she rolled right over the "money shot" and I was not ready to know.
It's Sam's B-day today. I can't believe he's one. *SIGH*
DH and I decided to just go out and visit the family at the campsite today and then drive home. There really wasn't enough room for us to stay there and I need my own bed, so this is just best all around. Quiet house for one more night. AAAHHH.
I scheduled my 20 weeks u/s for Sept. 12th. I told DH that he's free to come or not to come but I still don't want to know whether the baby is a boy or a girl. He's undecided on whether to find out. I told him that there is no way that I can have him knowing and me not knowing, so we've got to decide. I think he'll end up not wanting to know that day and then maybe there'll not end up being another chance. He thinks he's going to get me to go to one of those u/s places in the mall in November. Nope nope nope!!!!

Well, we're back from Canada. It was a really nice trip. I wish we were closer though. Driving for 3 days is tough. I was so sad to leave Oregon. Nate was sad too. He said, "I want to stay at Auntie's house forever and ever and ever!" I thought, "Me too!" Well, not AT her house, but in Oregon.
It was nice to scope out some places that we could possibly live. I LOVED Ashland, but it's too far south. Oh well, we'll find the right town in a few years when the time is right.
Sam had 3 birthday parties for his 1st b-day. What a lucky little guy. My sister gave him one on our trip through Portland, then Ron's sister got him a cake and we all sang to him again up at the cabins, and then we had a 3rd party at MIL/FIL's house a couple of days later. So much fun!
16-ish weeks and I'm feeling pretty good. Tired, but not pukey. I can deal with tired.
I've been feeling little flutters for a while now. It's a really nice feeling.
R goes back to work tomorrow. It will be nice to have the house to myself for a week. I've got lots of work to do to prepare for the new semester.
Nate starts Kindy on the 25th. I'm so excited for him! I can't wait to find out who his teacher will be. I hope she's nice and knows what she is doing.
I have an OB appt. tomorrow at 9:45 a.m. I'm scared ****less. I felt tons of movement while we were in Canada and now, I *think* I might feel something every once in a while but I'm not sure. *SIGH* You'd think with this being my 3rd baby that I'd calm down a bit. Nope.
Ron has been taking Sam to daycare in the mornings so Nate and I can sleep in and then spend some time together. We've been having fun shopping and playing games. I'm really enjoying this little bit of time I have with him before he starts school. Sometimes I feel guilty that he gets the shaft attention-wise because Sam needs us so much.
I'm so excited for Nate to start school. I talked to his Kindy teacher for like 30 mins the other day. I couldn't get that woman off the phone! It was funny. She seemed really excited that I want to volunteer and that I have a K-12 teaching license. Ron was bummed that Nate isn't in the same class with his two buddies from daycare, but out DCP says that Nate has the best Kindy teacher at the school. I think that is more important, but DH disagrees. Oh well, I'm not going to protest!
Nate and I went to K-Mart and one of the things we bought was a couple of sippy cups for Sam. I brought them home, washed them, and gave one to Sam a bit later. He picked it up and figured it out immediately. That blew me away. Okie dokie, the kid can do a sippy Hurray!
I'm drowning in 200 piles of laundry. My poor old washer is going to die. It has been going for 2 days straight.
My mom's little doggy died. I feel so bad for her. I sent her a sympathy card today. I wish I could give her a hug. I'm glad my aunt is there visiting her though!
