27 1/2 weeks

We are starting the big countdown! Only 11 more weeks to go! This pregnancy has gone by so fast. I had a doctors appointment about 2 weeks ago and everything is great! I was a little worried because I am significantly smaller than I was with Liam, but things are right on track. Apparently because of my high blood pressure last pregnancy, I gained too much weight, 58 pounds to be exact! This time, my blood pressure is low, I'm watching what I'm eating, and I'm feeling great. With the lower weight gain also means that I feel this baby so much more. Many times his punches and kicks are quite painful! Liam loves to feel him move, and Brendan will snuggle up to the side of my belly that Liam is sitting next to. Here are some pictures we took today. I accidentally wore black and orange today, so we thought it would be cute to make a pumpkin face on my shirt!

Life has officially happened!

Wow! It's been a while since I have blogged, but like my title states, life happened! I thought I was busy before, but now, we are even busier. I think my day to day routine consists of waking up at 430am, going to work, coming home, making dinner, doing homework, playing with Liam, going to bed, and starting all over. It really feels as though there is not enough time in a day to get everything done! We are working hard to get things ready for Brendan because the weeks are flying by and we only have about 10-12 more weeks! Which also means that I only have that much time to get someone trained at work to take over my position! Not an easy task to do in 10 weeks! Lately I have really started to question why I decided to take classes this semester, after all, the classes end on Dec. 18th and I am currently scheduled for a c-section on Dec. 19th! That is cutting it way too close! Other than the overload of homework that I can never seem to get done everyday, my heart is just not in it because I want to spend as much time with Liam before Brendan comes. Oh the things we do to save some money....

In the midst of all our craziness, we did manage to sneak in an afternoon at Lake Hemet on Sunday with our friends Mike and Leanne and their little girl Kara. It was a nice day, minus all the bee's that seemed to want to attack us! Liam really enjoyed Kara and wanted to hold her and play with her the whole time!
