09.18.10 :: 5 years // 26 weeks pregnant


5 years ago today I married the love of my life.
Five years, 2.5 kids, things couldn't be better.


Today I'm 26 weeks pregnant. I'm so close to being in my 3rd trimester officially. Though, because I am not going to give birth past 37 weeks, I kinda feel like I'm already in the last stretch. With only 11 weeks to go - I have to start organizing the nursery... it's crunch time! Too bad it takes me forever to do things because a) being very pregnant, b) not being able to bend, c) not being able to lift and d) being tired on top of it. Things just take forever for me lately.

And... I officially cannot see my feet when I'm standing straight.


This afternoon we took advantage of the gorgeous September weather and took a walk.


The kids wanted some candies so we stop at the convenience store.
Sean picked out the coolest lollypops for him & Mack.

What a sticky mess it made.


After our walk, we headed out for lunch to a local place I usually love. Today - not so much. The service was understaffed, my salad came with unwashed lettuce and we felt like we were rushed by the staff. Not fun today. Above is a picture after Mackenzie tried a lemon slice off my drink. Love the face.

The kids were supposed to go to my parents house tonight to sleep over and unfortunately my mother came down with tonsillitis, so our anniversary dinner plans got spoiled unfortunately. Jamie went out to get dinner and we ate at home. After the cranky kids (no naps today) went to bed, we watched She's Out of My League, which was really cute. I started a new knitting project while watching it - as I kind of need a tiny break from my sample knit, which is coming along as well. Details on my new project coming up shortly.

Also - for those codes you enter from store bought items, (diapers, wipes, etc), there is a bonus going on right now until Oct 31st, where you can double your points.

I keep reading your posts about pregnancy and wanted to send you a little note. I also had placenta previa (only partial and it all cleared away closer to the end of the pregnancy), so I also was on modified bed rest and felt just like you - tired and useless. But you already have 2 kids to run after, this was my first one, so I can only imagine how hard it is to not be able to be active! I also had a hard time finishing up nursery, had to make the husband do most of the work including painting, getting furniture set up, etc. But we have to do what we have to do, gotta be as safe as possible, right? :)
Wishing you all the best with the pregnancy, can't wait to read your stories about your family of 5!!! :)

happy 5th! Three kids in under 6 years - wow! We were married 7 before we even thought to have one. Now we're coming up on 18 with an eleven year old. We'd love another, but at almost 48, I have no interest in pregnancy - I'd rather live vicariously thorugh others!
Narrowed down names yet?
