I am not going to make any promises that i will keep this thing updated. With my little guy at home i don't want to do anything but play with him. I am back to work now, today was my first day back and i am missing him soooooo much! I missed my class a lot though and was so excited to see them all again. They are such great kids and I love my job so much that it makes coming back to work a little easier.
Yes Chett finally came, but after one heck of a struggle. I will post the story later, but I just wanted to post a quick update about our perfect little man. He was born Dec. 3rd 7lbs 8oz 19in long. He is so perfect.....i know i am partial, but i swear i could stare at him all day long and not get bored of it for one second. Anthony and I lay in bed at night with him and just talk about how lucky we are and how amazing he is. We do it every night and still can't believe how perfect he is each time we get in bed and stare at him again. I will be posting pictures eventually, but I suck at keeping up with anything now. Maybe I will get better, but like i said no promises. I can't put Chett down long enough to upload my pics and now that I am back at work I know I will be loving on him even more when I get home.

Quick update

Time is flying by and Chet is going to be here before we know it. We are so excited to FINALLY get to meet our little guy. I am definitely getting uncomfortable and ready to be done being pregnant. I have really enjoyed the experience of being pregnant so far, but now I think everything on my body that could hurt, does, so im really getting ready to have him in my arms instead of my in my stomach. My mom buys all of her children's first crib, we got ours a couple weeks ago, it is so perfect!! I LOVE it!!!! THANKS MOM!!! I will have to post some pictures of it, it is so awesome. We have pretty much everything ready to go so now we are just playing the waiting game. My due date is now the 29th so a few days sooner. The doc says everything looks perfect, he is growing perfect, moving great and his heart beat is very strong. He is in position and I am dilated to a 2 and 75% thinned out so things are moving along. I just can't wait to see our little guy! Anthony is so antsy, it is so funny to watch him get excited thinking that he is going to come. Every time I have a contraction he gets so excited hoping it's time. I have been waking up a lot at night in so much pain and every time I wake Anthony up he is so excited asking Are you in labor? is is time? but sadly I have to tell him no and he gets a little bummed. Work is going great! I love my class and am so sad that I have to leave them, but so excited obviously!!!!!

I had to post the lyrics to this song. Anthony came home the other day after picking up his sisters and they just HAD to show me this song that fit him perfectly. I thought it was so cute, he is just so excited to be a daddy, I love watching him get excited and talk about the future with his little man.

Anything Like Me lyrics

Songwriters: Dubois; Paisley, Brad Douglas; Turnbull;

I remember sayin' I don't care either way
Just as long as he or she is healthy I'm okay
Then the doctor pointed to the corner of the screen
And said, "You see that thing right there, well you know what that means"

I started wondering who he was going to be
And I thought heaven help us if he's anything like me

He'll probably climb a tree too tall and ride his bike too fast
End up every summer wearin' something in a cast
He's gonna throw a ball and break some glass in a window down the street

He's gonna get in trouble, oh he's gonna get in fights
I'm gonna lose my temper and some sleep
It's safe to say that I'm gonna get my payback if he's anything like me

I can see him right now, knees all skinned up
With a magnifying glass tryin' to melt the Tonka truck
Won't he be a sight with his football helmet on?
That'll be his first love 'til his first love comes along

He'll get his heart broke by the time he's in his teens
And heaven help him if he's anything like me

He'll probably stay out too late and drive his car too fast
Get a speeding ticket, he'll pay for mowing grass
He's gonna get caught skippin' class and be grounded for a week

He's gonna get into trouble, we're gonna get in fights
I'm gonna lose my temper and some sleep
It's safe to say that I'm gonna get my payback if he's anything like me

He's gonna love me and hate me along the way
Years are gonna fly by and I already dread the day

He's gonna hug his momma, he's gonna shake my hand
He's gonna act like he can't wait to leave
But as he drives out he'll cry his eyes out if he's anything like me
There's worst folks to be like, oh he'll be alright if he's anything like me

Life is flying by. I can't seem to keep up anymore. I have now been teaching fourth grade for six weeks and LOVE LOVE LOVE it. I have so much fun with my students and love the people I work with. My belly is growing every single day. It is so fun to watch as our little guy gets bigger. Anthony and I are so excited to finally get to meet him in eight weeks. I am scared out of my mind at the same time, but I know I will be able to handle it. I can't wait to see what he looks like and to see his personality. I can already imagine what he will look like. I think he is going to be a mini Anthony and definitely couldn't be happier about that. Anthony is one amazingly good looking man and to have my little guy look just like would be the most perfect thing I could imagine. Other that work and getting ready for Chet to get here we have just been enjoying life and having fun in this new big step forward in our lives.

boy oh boy

Anthony and I are so excited for this next step in our lives. We found out two weeks ago that we are having a BOY!!!! We are so happy and feel so blessed to be able to have this little guy. We both have always wanted kids and have just been waiting until we felt like the time was right to become parents. Lucky for us, once we decided we wanted to start a family we found out a month and a half later that I was pregnant. We truly are so blessed and are so happy! This will be the first grandchild on Anthony's side and the first grandson on my side. I have 6 adorable nieces, but no nephews. Needless to say he is going to be sooooo spoiled. I am really starting to look pregnant now. I have felt huge for the last two months, but really no one could tell I was pregnant. butI am starting to really get a belly. I am getting use to my growing belly and am feeling great (no more sickness) and I absolutely LOVE being pregnant. It has been so fun and I am so grateful that I can enjoy being pregnant and not be sick the whole time like many other people I know. Anthony has been so cute about the whole thing and he just can't wait for him to get here. I watch him play with my nieces and take care of them and I can already see what an amazing dad he is going to be. I am so lucky to have Anthony in my life, he is such an amazing husband and will be the best dad ever. I can't even wait for our little man to get here!!!!

what's new

SInce it has been forever since i updated this thing i figured i would do a quick post. I just moved...again! to a cute place in PG, we love it. it is a lot smaller than our last place, but it fits us perfectly. It is a mess right now and everything is still in boxes, but we should get all settled in this week. I am still teaching and absolutely loving it! I couldn't love my job anymore than i do. I am so glad i chose elementary education because it fits me perfect. Anthony is working at a website place and is going to school so i don't get to see him as much as i would like, but it will be nice when he is finished with school and he is doing really good at his job and really enjoys it. other than that nothing too exciting is going on.
