    Well your body is getting active again. Have you and DH discussed a fifth? Does it have to be an oops or might you just go for it?

    Another easy appointment with my midwife. I now have all my appointments scheduled through 40 weeks! I am excited to be in the final stretch!!

    How is the house virginia? Is it nice to have a place that is yours?

    I don't think we'll go for a fifth for a bit, if ever. We really need a chance to get settled and get the kids all started at school and everything. And Arthur needs his milk (I lose my milk shortly after getting pregnant). If things are going well in a couple months, I might be open to actively trying.
    The house is great. I just wish it had more furniture and fewer boxes! We ordered a swing set last night.

    We totally had our swing set delivered the week before we moved right after we closed on the house My boys love their swings (and slide and climbing area).

    So here's a randomly awesome technicality. I'm at work a year October 7th. FMLA doesn't kick in until a year. So I have 12 weeks as of October 7th so basically the earlier this kiddo comes the more time home I have b/c I'll use disability/leave of absence prior to that. So this kid could be awesome and come at like 38 or 39 weeks and have an extra couple weeks with me home. I am sure I won't be so lucky considering both boys were late but I'm going to hope

    Katie - Glad the pregnancy is going well, can't believe baby is going to be here so soon. O.o

    Virginia - Glad you like your new place. I could move I am so sick of how little space my current house has especially for storage.

    *AFM*

    The girls have been enjoying their summer sports, Natalie in soccer and Dana in ball hockey.

    I got my learners permit for driving, but am a nervous wreck when it comes to trying to drive, I wished I learned to drive sooner. I'm looking into getting lessons after the kids are back in school. If all goes well we'll look at getting a second car in the spring.

    Natalie really wanted a pair of knock-off Chuck Taylors (shoes) we saw when shopping but they are tie up, so the deal was she could have them if she would learn to tie them, sure enough after one 30 minute session with DH she knew how to ties shoes. Love when bigger kids hit milestones.

    And as one last thing I'll share a pic of all my kitties together.

    Hi guys!

    Katie - I can't believe you're already almost due!!! Didn't you just announce your pregnancy!? Hope the nanny passes the test so you can mark that off your to-do list.

    Virginia - glad you're liking the new house. Sounds like you've been super busy!

    Amanda - how cool that Nat learned to tie her shoes so quickly. Glad the kids have been enjoying their summer activities.

    AFM - How is summer break already over!? Xander started his second year of Pre-K on Wednesday, but I feel like I was just picking him up on the last day... FAST summer! He was so excited to go back to school and just walked on in like he owned the place, hardly pausing to give me a hug goodbye. lol I'm happy to have my 2 1/2 hour break back in the morning, well, "break." I still have Benjamin and BOY is he a handful! He keeps me on my toes, that's for sure. He learned how to climb on the couch, so I'm always catching him standing on it or throwing himself backwards on it. It's only a matter of time this he tumbles off, but we have an open house and there's no way I can keep him away from it. He's almost 2, so I'm just not going to be on him nonstop. Gah. He shattered a glass a few weeks back and by some miracle didn't get cut - there were shards everywhere! I had to slowly tiptoe in the kitchen and calmly pick him up and walk away... I knew if I freaked that he'd freak and then he'd step in it. The dang glass wasn't even close to the edge of the counter - but he will swipe his arms across the countertops to see what he can find! He will definitely be our first trip to the ER, I already know it. He just has no fear!

    Amanda - your cats are adorable all snuggling together! Love it. My cats were locked upstairs in the rental and have free reign now in our house and they love it. They sit with me nightly, it's nice.

    Lauren - Aw year two of Pre school! And I can't believe Benjamin is almost 2. Crazy. Time Flies!

    We are ready for pre-k. Evan is actually in a multi age classroom Prek-1st grade. Only 8 kids with 2 teachers. I think it will be great for him. I'm SUPER excited. Rory is in their 2's and 3's room. Both boys are REALLY excited to start Monday. We had a little dinner at school and then their teachers came out to our house to meet them in their home. It was great. Evan's teacher has a daughter in Rory's class. Evan had his first soccer practice today which meant coach Daddy coached his first soccer practice today. 7 kids under 6. It went pretty well. One little girl just wasn't in to it but that's ok and Steve found each drill has to move REALLY fast. But all in all it seemed fine. One little boy has been playing for 2 years in another league (the local league U6 is the first level) so he's pretty far ahead of the other kids, and he appears to just be a pretty darn athletic little boy too. But the parents all seemed nice. One mom is due in 2 weeks so we were both lamenting the heat in our very pregnant states and another mom has a 2 year old who was playing with Rory. Now my goal is to FINALLY get pictures hung in the house. They have been sitting out since we moved and I want them UP!

    Amanda- your kitties are so cute! Yay for Natalie learning to tie her shoes! My kids don't know how. I've never really tried to teach them. For tie up shoes, you can always just put in 1/4" seeing elastic instead of laces and you get instant slip on shoes.

    Lauren- Benjamin sounds like a handful! Oliver is a lot like that. He turned two and I started counting down to age three. Now he's coming up on three and a half and I'm still waiting for him to get easier.

    Katie- happy 36 weeks! Any chance of a photo?

    AFM: unpacking, getting the kids ready for school, planning my sister's baby shower... and Arthur is crawling everywhere and almost pulling up. crazy. The baby shower is on Arthur's birthday. I might ask if she's okay with me bringing him. I don't want to be away all day on his first birthday.

    I've decided my most annoying fertile symptom is baby fever. Right now #5 sounds like such a good idea, the timing seems perfect (ha!), and so on. In a few days it will sound insane again.

    I have no belly pictures! I should take at least one. I feel like this pregnancy has been so far and so easy. I am just really starting to feel uncomfortable, hop pain which was terrible all through with Rory has been minimal. Sleeping really just started to get bad. Pregnancies like this make me think I could do it again lol. I did have some cramping and a little pinkish kind of plug discharge today. I have simply assumed he would be late because both boys were. I have been taking some oral evening primrose to try and avoid the nine days late thing but today made me realize I should probably take some time this weekend and get things ready just to be safe. We have a car seat but not an infant seat....the convertible would work but I should just go get an infant seat so we are ready.

    In other news I was rear ended on the way to my midwife appointment. The airbags didn't deploy and I felt fine, even did a nst to be sure and all was well but it is a hassle. Luckily the boys were not with me and I had the bigger highlander. Tomorrow it goes in to get an estimate. Of course the guy who hit me was illegally driving uninsured. My insurance covers it but seriously.....pita.

    The boys started their new school and I am thrilled. Evan already loves it and so does Rory. I feel so good about the choice, now we just need to be sure to get a great nanny and all will be well!
