Baby Shower

I can’t believe we’re over ½ way done with October….it’s crazy!! And the rest of the month is just going to fly by! Between Scott bowling Tuesday nights & every other Friday, Connor having Gymnastics on Wednesdays….This Saturday I have Book Club, Sunday I have a pampered Chef Party, and then next weekend is Halloween! AHH!!! It’s definitely true that time goes by faster when you’re older!

So this past Sunday was Ashley’s baby shower. It was nice. Her mom threw it for her at a Country Club, so it was kinda on the fancier side, but not overdone. We had some good food, played some games (I actually won both of them, lol). She opened her presents, got a couple of duplicates, but overall got a lot of nice things. I’m a little jealous that I don’t get a big shower again this time, but I already had my time…. It’s just fun to have family & friends get together to celebrate the life you’re creating.

Mississippi River Museum & Aquarium

So I had my 32 week appointment last night, and it went good. Pretty sure Savannah is head down & growing like she should. We talked about labor, inducing, etc. And I’m SO GLAD my Dr. is very laid back, and is okay with me not wanting to be induced at 39 weeks (BTDT mom’s I guess she gives them the option), and not wanting any pain meds/interventions. She seemed totally cool with my ideas, and thinks I shouldn’t have a problem. I guess I did awesome with Connor (pitocin, posterior, plus his hand was up by his head) without needing an epidural or any other assistance during birth.

So anyways, on Saturday this past weekend we decided to go to Iowa, to the Mississippi River Museum & Aquarium. Jessica & Justin decided to tag along with us as well. It only took about 1.75 hours to drive down there, so not too bad. We got down there around 1 p.m. walked around for awhile, and looked at the animals. Connor wanted to keep seeing more animals, so I know he had fun. Unfortunately I was a little disappointed with the whole experience. I thought there would be more aquariums and stuff, but oh well. It was still fun for Connor, and that was all that mattered. I think the next aquarium we take him too will be Sheds Aquarium in Chicago.

32 Weeks

Last week I finished up my Managing for Quality class, pretty sure I got an A as I only got minus 1.5 pts out of 315. Today I get to start my Access Advanced class. It should be pretty easy, and I should be able to get at least a B in it, if not an A or AB.

Well today I go for my 32 week Dr. apt, which means this past Saturday I was officially 32 weeks. Now there is less than 5 weeks until I am considered full term! I can’t believe it. The time just keeps going faster and faster, and it doesn’t help that the Holidays are approaching. In no time little Savannah will be here! If she has the same schedule as Connor she will be here in 35 days, if she decides to be stubborn the latest she will be here is 63 days! The end is near!


So my long weekend went way to fast, but what else is new? Other than Scott setting my alarm for 6:45 a.m., lol, the day off Friday was pretty nice. I went and got my hair done, watched some TV, did a little around the house, nothing to exciting, but it was nice.

Thursday on the way home from work my car hit 100,000! I always imagined that I would get rid of my car before it hit this point, and I do want to get rid of it, but it is kind of nice not having a car payment at the moment. I think maybe with taxes next year we might invest in something a little bigger. It’s going to be pretty difficult to fit 2 car seats in the back of it, but we’ll manage for a couple of months.

Kindred in Death

So the last two nights I've slept like complete crap! I thought I was doing good with not having a lot of heartburn, but NO....the last week it has definitely kicked in more often! I've also been having this weird pain really really low, but my Dr. doesn't seem to think there is anything to worry about, just normal aches & pains of being preggo.....Only 39-67 more days to go! (39 days if she decides to have the same schedule as Connor, and 67 at the most before being induced!)

So last night I finally finished the book I was reading. It really only took about 2 weeks, but it just seems like so much longer when you've read a couple of Danielle Steel books back to back, and those only take 2-3 days. I read Kindred in Death. I've read several of these series and really enjoy them, and this one did not disappoint. It's a mysterious story line with twists and turns and keeps me thinking that always drags me in. I wouldn't say they are my favorite books, but I definitely like them enough to keep getting them. This was the book that was released last year, and I know I have several that I've skipped, so I'll have to go back and get those as well.

One Last Time

So as Savannah's B-Day comes nearer and nearer, it doesn't seem like we're getting anything accomplished in the house.... ugh! I wanted to get so much more done, but I just don't think it's going to happen. We still need to paint her bookshelf & put up the shelf for her barbies. I never finished going threw all of Connor's Toys....the basement is a complete disaster.....now I'm just starting to get overwhelmed with everything and coming to the realization that we might not get everything done.....oh well I guess, it's not the end of the world........

Like I said in the last post, this weekend was beautiful. Other than going to the Pumpkin Patch on Saturday, Sunday we decided to bust out the sprinkler one last time. Connor & Scott had a lot of fun playing with the Rocket Ship sprinkler that he got for his birthday.
Then Scott decided to jump on the trampoline (which was covered in leaves) and Connor decided to play in his sandbox. By the time they were done playing they were filthy & had to spray down with the hose, BRRR.


The weather over the weekend was just beautiful! It was 80 and sunny! Crazy for the middle of October, but I'll take it!!! Not to much going on right now.... finishing up my Managing for Quality class this week, Access starts next week.

So Saturday we decided to drive out to Marshall and get some pumpkins! We went with Matt, Chrissy, Buddy, Ella, Cat, Brodie, Macy, Michelle, Carol, Donovan, & GG. It was fun for Connor to ride the train & see all of the animals that they had there. The sheep, cows, zebras, horses, etc. Once we got to the "pumpkin patch" we only had like five minutes to pick out our pumpkins. It seemed pretty rushed, and I wish we would have had a little bit longer to do it. But overall for $7 a person for a train ride & pumpkin, it's not to bad. Not sure if we'd ever do it again, but we might.
