Happy Birthday Chazz!

Chazz is finnally 4 years old! I cant believe it was 4 years ago he was cut out of my stomach and found his way into all of our hearts! This year he was anxiously awaiting his bicycle, which he got first thing this morning. He is excited to have his favorite food, pizza, for dinner and to pick out a special movie to watch this afternoon. He thinks all of is presents are so cool and since his family birthday party on the 8th, they are all he talks about and plays with.
He was super excited to get some packages in the mail from Grandma Deb and from Grandpa Jim. Mom he already has polished off half his box of fruit snacks!!
He will have his final party with his friends on Saturday at McDonalds (which is also Zyans friend party so I can just relax after the baby), so that will be a huge sigh of relief for me. Zack made me promise not to have seperate parties next year and just celebrate on their birthdays, I dont know if that will happen because I love to celebrate their birthdays and have a special party for their friends and for the family. I think he gets tired of hearing about presents and toys...etc.
Chazz has grown so much this year, I think that his milestones have been....1. Learning all of his shapes and colors 2. He can count to 20 by himself and sometimes higher 3.He has learned all about playing pretend 4. He can spell his name and identify those letters 5. He is simply growing like a weed!!

One Busy Week ahead!

I am all ready for the baby to come, but this last week is jam packed with Chazz's 4th Birthday, Dr. appointments and Birthday Parties! I would usually welcome the baby earlier (well who am I kidding I would love to have it any day), but I have a lot of things going on this week that need to be done before the little one arrives. We are still stuck on middle names for the two we have picked out... Zoey ? and Boaz ?. I really want the names to flow and have a great meaning, so I better get crackin on that too.

10 days left!

I have 10 days until my scheduled surgery. I am having contractions that take my breath away and every once in a while they are stronger than that. I almost went in to get checked out, to see if I am dialated, but I dont want to jump the gun here, the hospital is an expensive place to visit, and just be sent home. I noticed them starting last night at 8 and they are still going on pretty regularly, I am just waiting for intensness now. Last night I woke up at 3:30 to go to the potty and sat up too fast, which gave me a huge contraction. It woke me up enough to take a shower, do some dishes and laundry. I think today I will vacume and try to get some other things done just incase these contractions lead to something. ( I kind of hope they do they are really annoying). right now they are spaced pretty evenly at about 6 minuets and last 1-3 minuets. time will tell!

Nursery is Done!

Its done for now unless I put on some bedding and hang some pictures. Its so pretty and clean looking. I cant wait to bring the baby home to it.

Nursery Update

Well we have been working hard all week. Mostly Zack has done it, but I feel guilty not helping him, so I end up in there working away. I only last a few hours and my back starts to sting in pain so I lay down and get up and check the progress. Its amazing what Zack can do, he is so talented and creative. I definatly grabbed myself a good one. I only have 17 days left until my c-section so I am certian we will have the project completed, I am only concerned about what bedding to put on the bed. My Dad thinks its a girl, but my body is telling me that this is one tough cookie for a girl, but I would love to be proven wrong....either way I will be elated to have another person in our family.
