AND.... we are off.... Wish us luck... We will be in touch lil old blog! Oh soo full of emotion right now and can't WAIT to let the world know what we had! Oh we love him/her all ready! POST SOON!!!! M
Let's be honest here... how many of you can say your mom is your very best friend??? Well I am not gonna lie my mom has been my best friend for well as long as I can remember. Even when I was 5 and screamed and kicked because I didn't want to go to kindergarden she was the only one that would stick up for me and stay until I was comfortable. Honestly, she is the most patient and caring person I know. Today my post is dedicated to my mom.... why??? random it's not her birthday, it's not mothers day.... It's because today I realized the LOVE my mom has for me, because of how much I love my baby! ( did that even make sense?) As I thought of all the reasons I love my mom I made this list and I am still adding to it in my head but I think I will just name a few because I think she is the most fabulous person, the most fabulous mother, and the most amazing grandmother I've EVER met... honestly... 1. She is my mom 2. She has the biggest heart. 3. She constantly is giving 4. She knows how to take a joke- and be mocked (which is helpful around our house... lol) 5. She laughs at anyone and Everyone's jokes... 6. She constantly has a smile on her face (even when Zack pees on her carpet) 7. She loves to play with her grandkids 8. She gives me breaks so I can "put my feet up" all the time 9. She constantly is helping me around my house (dishes, laundry, making my bed-which p.s. I can tell when she has made it because its soo neat and tight just like when I was a kid!) 10. She serves the Lord 11. She never complains 12. She is so willing to do anything for me, especially right now constantly taking Zack, helping me with errands, and willing to do anything while we are in the hospital 13. She always tells me it's ok that I call her like 15 times a day (even though I'm pretty sure she has A LOT more important things she could be doing) 14. She is the greatest example (I remember as a kid always walking past her bedroom and seeing her on her knees) 15. She makes the best LEMONADE... 16. Although she thinks my dad is the better cook (which don't get me wrong he is an amazing cook!!!) nothing beats my moms cooking... have you tasted cynth's buns....? 17. She is the hardest worker I've met 18. I love her love notes 19. I love her MOM/DAUGHTER dates 20. I love her house!! (is that vain... I do though) 21. I love how she worries... 22. She loves her family 23. She loves unconditional 24. She is truly my best friend in the whole world and I don't think I would be the person I am today without her! 25. I love her I am not kidding I could sit here all night posting more to this list but I'll stop, but I just wanted the world to know that I most definitely have the WORLDS GREATEST MOM! I love you cynth you mean the world to our family! Thanks for everything you do for us and especially our little Zacker! He loves you more than anything (really... more than queenie I think??? and I'm pretty positive more than his parents haha... ) I LOVE YA CYNTH AND THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR HELP!!!! XOXO M
Ok so its official... we are on the official count down to baby coming!!! OOH I can't wait as I am not going to lie this last bit has been a wee bit uncomfortable! I am tired, grumpy, and kinda short tempered I have to admit.... I feel sorry for my poor and patient husband... What a sweet man he is to put up with me... Anyways this post is just to my baby boy.... Ugh I am gonna start to cry but that is just because I am 5 days away from having a baby so I am allowed to cry right? Oh Zack... how precious you are to me! How I can't get enough of you! Especially this week as we get closer to baby #2, and amongst the grumpiness of being pregnant I just can't get enough of my babies kisses, I can't hold him enough and I can't watch him sleep enough... In the night sometimes I just go in his room and watch his sweet little face as he sleeps and looks so innocent and precious! I can't get enough I really can't. I can't believe we are having another one... it is sooo exciting yet I am getting a little sad as the time spent with just me and my baby seems to be going so fast... I feel like I just need to savor every moment... ugh that's a hard one to explain I guess unless you've gone through that... Anyways... I just wanted my baby boy to know how much I love him so much! It has been a pleasure being his mom and I am so excited to watch him become a BIG BROTHER! you will be fabulous lil bubba and we LOVE you more than anything! Thanks for being the most handsome and happiest lil babe we know! Zack these last 2 years have been the best years of my life... you complete us!! WE Love you MOM AND DAD! (This, besides my wedding day was the best moment of my life)
Ok you know that song when you were little, when you wake up in the morning and its quarter to 1, and you just want to have a little fun you brush your teeth , chuchichiuchiuchuchuchu... however you spell that last part but you all know what I'm talking about... lolAnd I'm guessing your all singing it now too... lol Its hard not to... Well I have recently discovered that isn't it AMAZING what a good toothbrushin can do... A. it removes plaque (fabulous, coming from a dental geek) B. instantly gives you better breath C. reduces the amount of cavities in your mouth. Anyways I just had to post this because lately as I have been feeling so yucky and just ready to get this done with I have found the one thing that has saved me is my toothbrush! I love my oral b, and what it does for me... lol... instantly I feel better... its like when you are getting ready for the day. You just can't feel READY until you get that toothbrush in your mouth eh? Anyways I just had to do a little shout out to my toothbrush today for helping me feel so fresh and clean! LOL! I love brushing my teeth... lol M
I am sure this is a little early but honestly I am so excited so nervous so everthing.... buuut eeeek 17 more days and we get to hold our sweet bundle of joy!!!!!!eeeek! Lets do some guesses... BOY OR GIRL? and weight? I wanna see if anyone can get it! M
Oh man, another post in 1 week... that's impressive... lol... I have been doing a lot of thinking since my last post and I just had to write this down. As I was driving into Lethbridge today I couldn't get this song out of my head and I kept thinking gosh, that's weird I normally don't have songs going through my head I normally have thoughts, or concerns or what I am going to do when I get to Lethbridge... But today was different.... As Things are getting closer for me and for baby to come I have been having a lot of "ahaa" moments... I guess you could call them. Like for instance 1. cutting my vegetables and fruits up and putting them in containers in the fridge completely helps our family eat our fruits and veggies.... (that was a lame example but little things like that) anyhoo... one of my aha moments today was as things are getting closer and closer for us, nerves start to get the best of me. I am constantly thinking of how Zack is going to do, how he will be while I'm away at the hospital, getting baby clothes ready and washed, cleaning this house like crazy, I guess you could say I'm 'nesting'? I think that is the dumbest term by the way... anyways... So through this process like I said I have some worrysome moments.. like will surgery go ok, will baby nurse, will baby be healthy, ect... so as I have been feeling these emotions I keep thinking in my head how to deal with all these emotions so I am not an emotional wreck for the next 3 weeks. I need to keep sane so I don't drive everyone around me nuts... anyways today as I was driving to lethbridge this song came in my head....
Ere you left your room this morning, Did you think to pray? In the name of Christ our Savior, Did you sue for loving favor, As a shield today? Oh, how praying rests the weary! Prayer will change the night to day; So when life seems dark and dreary,
Don’t forget to pray.
Don't you just love that song? Gosh, how simple can it be.... how dumb must I be.... I know I pray at night and sometimes I just get into the same routine of prayers, but think about it... All you have to do is pray? (ok I am sure this is lame to some as this is just an epiphany for me....) anyways, what a great little song. I sang it so loud to Zack and then I just started to bawl ( so much for keeping my emotions under control for the next 3 weeks haha) I know that as these last few months have turned into weeks, as these next few weeks turn into days, and as those days turn into hours and then minutes.... I know that, that minute where I get to finally hold my precious little baby in my arms that all time will stop, all time will hold still for Ken and I, and not one of those worries will cross my mind for that brief minute! oooh I can't wait for that minute to come! I am grateful to a Heavenly Father who trusts Ken and I to do this, to bring another little one into this big scary world, and how grateful I am for that! Well off to bed, will keep everyone posted when baby comes. I will try and keep my epiphany's to a minimum... lol
