a month?

i go and get pregnant and let 
a month
lapse between blog posts?
so much for documenting my life! :)

if life could ever be called crazy and hectic, 
that is exactly what it has been for weeks now.
i live in my den, except for the wee hours of the morning
when i drag my carcus to my bed to sleep for a few hours...
my den/family room transforms into an 
'art studio'
each year from February to April-ish
this year was no different...
except for the loving help of my 4.5year old -
and i am not kidding!
i am currently in the stage of
'oops, get that in a minute' when i drop things
because at 7 months pregnant {today!!!}
that is just the way i roll...
but if it is really important, i call for reinforcement
he's always glad to help!
you know, when he's not too busy
with watching rescue heroes or something...
and sometimes, i guess i ask too much
and just wear him slap out...
he comes by this 'television watching turns passed out'
"position" naturally...
{i will say no more...}

but we have fun... 
and this week is spring break! 
so we have fun all day, every day! 
with no break!!!
and it has been amazing.
giles has been truly so much fun, 
so sweet, so helpful, so happy...
and we have big fun coming this weekend...
our friends the bakers are making an appearance
{minus daddy barry}
giles and elizabeth go way back...
he squeeled when he heard she was coming
for a visit
that will round out our week of spring break very nicely!

it began great too with a playdate with sweet friends
to the park and chick fil a, 
but i forgot my camera...
and, let's face it, boys on a playground
and then at chick fil a playground 
do. not. sit. still.
and you can see from above, 
i am challenged to get a non-blurry picture 
in the best case scenarios!

o! and i guess since i started this blog 
lamenting a lack of documentation about this pregnancy
here are a few random thoughts.
pregnancy is harder the second go 'round...
older, fatter, busier :)))
it is sweeter the second go 'round
because you kind of know what to expect, 
so you can relax a little
no matter what, when your stomach starts to grow, 
you realize you have completely forgotten how surreal *that* feels!
watching and listening to giles talk about 'brudder'
is soooo sweet... and innocent.... and pure.
and i am sure his sweet thoughts of how awesome his brudder is
will be sorely challenged. soon. and for awhile.
i just have a feeling that little bro is going to 
send big bro into a tailspin for a minute...
but, like with everything in that kids life,
he will kick back on his heels for about 
2.5 seconds before he is on to the next mystery of life!
at 7 months i am still wearing my regular pants but 
just added in the bella band, or whatever it is called...
you unbutton your own pants and wear this over the top of them
and it promises to keep your pants up.
i am not sure if will report a 'fail' on that or not... 
i am hopeful it is not just a marketing slogan :)
i have not purchased one item of maternity clothing
 but have been gifted with either borrowing or having
more clothes than will fit in my closet 
{so, um, yup! they aren't IN my closet... adding to my mess}
but i really just plan to hunker down,
after march 24th,
and go no where!!!
o, and one parting reminder i sure don't want to forget... 
the cankles started
...about 3 days ago... 
and around that time, i also realized, 
i have NAILS now! 
so, i slapped some strengthener on them 
and propped up my feet
and i am ready to go!
