Silly Glasses




We bought some pipe cleaners for a science project Jacob has to do and the boys had fun with some glasses I made for them.

Another Big Boy!

I went to the doctor today for my ultrasounnd and she said Justus is in the 83% and his body is measuring about 35-36 weeks but I'm only 34 weeks pregnant so that means he could be 9 pounds! OUCH!

(Just a reminder my first two were 8 lbs even and the third was 8 lbs. 13 oz one week early)

So my blood pressure is fine and everything is on track, except Justus is laying sideways in my uterus. His head is on my right side and we need him to turn down SOON. The space in there is limited and he'll need to rotate soon or we might be looking at a c-section. I've never had one and I don't want one.

They don't want me to go to my due date so they said I could definately get induced a week early so we are looking at Nov. 29th for a possible birthday. WOO HOO!!! Only 34 more days! (I think I can...I think I can....I think I can)

I had to have her double check~still a boy...and no cleft lip!!! PRAISE the LORD!!!

Going to bed now...or should I say going to recliner.

Toilet Trouble

Jacob is almost as tall as me. Jaron is getting taller but he's still having a hard time gaining weight. Jonah is also getting taller and only weighs 2 lbs. less than Jaron. I sure do hope Jaron learns to like food one day.
School is going good. Jacob went on a field trip to a park/museum last week. Jaron is going to a pumpkin patch Friday.

We had a yardsale and someone gave us this. Jaron had fun playing with it.
Last SaturdayJonah was in the bathroom with a little plastic cup the boys use to rinse after brushing their teeth. (disposable kind) Chris's phone rang so he walked out for a minute and Jonah came to me and said "Mommy cup in the potty" I said what? He said "Cup went down the potty" so I went in the bathroom to see if it was floating in the water. The toilet was running because he just FLUSHED it!!! I did not see a cup in there. I hoped he was telling me wrong. So I planned to tell Chris when he got off the phone but I forgot because I was getting ready for my baby shower. He went to use the bathroom and it overflowed. Then I remember.... :-D He plunged the toilet for an hour hoping the cup would pass through but it wasn't budging. So I went to the baby shower and he was watching all 3 boys so couldn't really take it apart then. After talking to my dad and my great uncle we decided he could remove the toilet and get the cup out himself. After calling a plumber who wanted to charge $200. Sunday morning the toilet overflowed again at 6am and soaked the floor so it was time...The kids were all in the bed so he did it! All by himself. He wasn't sure he could do it because he's never done any plumbing of any kind but we took the advice and it was SIMPLE....NASTY but simple. It took him all of one hour from start to finish. The cup is out and the toilet works fine now. Now the shower is broke.... :-(

My View

I am finding myself in the recliner more and more these days. I am not a lazy person so sitting so much drives me crazy. I just can't stand very long any more. I want to be up doing things. There is always things that need to be done around the house and sitting still is not what I want to be doing but my body can't handle it. I cannot wait to have this baby so I can be up and getting stuff done like I used to. Slacker is not my middle name but I feel like it should be these last few weeks.

Pregnancy update

Well this is going to be short and sweet because it is late and my head is POUNDING! I went to the doctor Friday for another check up. I asked if she would check me to be sure I'm not dilated and she did...and I'm not. Thank God! It's too early to have him now. I've just been feeling lots of pressure and wanted to be sure everything was ok. So I'm fine and going back Oct 26th for an ultrasound to get an estimate of how big he is and when they are willing to induce my labor. I'm comfortable with one week early about Nov. 29th. We'll see what they say....goodnight

Visit from Peepaw


Chris's dad drove down here all the way from New Hampshire, Sunday. He brought his fiance' Barbara and her son Tyler. They stayed in a hotel because we don't have room for them to sleep here. They stayed all week and we had fun. We went to the park one day, bowling one day and Toys R Us one day.
He was helping Jacob with his homework.

Happy Birthday to Mommy!

Well today I am 30 years old. I cannot believe it. It's amazing and confusing to me how our minds feel so young and yet we continue to age in our bodies. The boys all told me happy birthday when I woke up this morning. We had chocolate pudding pie with whipped cream and I enjoyed a day with my family. I am not in any condition to go out to eat or anything. Walking has become quite the chore. I try to stay in the recliner as much as possible. I go back to the doctor Friday for another check up and I'm anxious to let her check me to see I've dilated. I feel some changes happening and I'm sorta worried. Maybe it's just because I've already had 3 my body different now. Not sure but it's better to be safe than sorry. So even though I had (still have) a headache most of the day I still had a good birthday. God has been so good to us.

He has a name!

So I posted on Facebook the other day the name we agreed on for this baby. He will be Justus Andrew. It took us a little longer to agree this time but we finally decided and were going to keep it a secret but couldn't resist telling it. Now the boys can talk to their brother and call him by name. Oh how they love to feel him kicking. :-)

I went back to the doctor today for a check up and everything looks great. My weight & blood pressure are fine. He is growing good and his heartbeat is good. Because I have big babies they are probably going to let me get induced a week early again this time. Jacob was 8 lbs, Jaron was 8 lbs and Jonah was 8 lb 13 oz one week early. So it's apparent I have big babies. They don't want him to get too big and force me to get a c-section. So that means we are looking at approx Nov 29th for delivery day!!! WOO HOO!

My body is definately getting tired and it's evident in the way I walk and sometimes the way I talk. :-/

only 59 more days!!!

I think I can....I think I can...
