To Do: Build An Ark

I'm not quite sure we can handle any more rain! It began pouring at 7 AM, then the sun came out briefly, which was followed by thunderstorms and downpours. Certain spots in my backyard are flooded, and it is just yucky out.

The past four days have been filled with movies, playdoh, moon sand, moon dough, color wonders coloring books, painting, drawing, and bracelet making. Cabin fever is setting in!

It's a good day to play catch-up!

*I had my glucose tolerance test last Wednesday. Most pregnant women dread this test, but when you are still struggling with morning sickness, you dread it even more! Yep...it was just as bad as I remembered, but I made it through!

*I'm going to a lot of OB appointments these days. My next one is on Monday morning. They're time-consuming, but I'm glad they're keeping a close eye on my progress! I've had a bad week with the contractions. They got a lot stronger on Sunday, and have stayed that way, even when I'm off my feet.

*Blogger briefly kicked the bucket last week. I'm glad I didn't lose any posts, but a lot of the comments from that week have disappeared!

*Lexie has been into painting her nails over the past week. Today, I found her like this:

*Dylan's new obsession is pirates and the movie Pirates of the Caribbean. It all started on Friday, when my mom bought him a Pirates of the Caribbean Lego set!

*I've been waiting for the novelty of having a new pet to wear off, but it hasn't. Lexie absolutely adores her hamster, and holds him constantly. He really is a sweet little guy!

*I have to admit, I love him, too. Cuteness overload!

*Yesterday was the 12th anniversary of Grant and I getting engaged! It's hard to believe that we have been together for that long!

*Dylan and I have been really accident prone lately.

Last Wednesday, right before my glucose test, I smashed a tray table into my face. It resulted in bruises under my eyes. Luckily, concealer helped!

Dylan ended up splitting his lip while playing with his cousins on Saturday night, and then got a big bruise on his cheek from another cousin on Monday. It does not look good!

Here's to some (hopefully!) sunnier weather over the weekend!

  2. The rain is killing me. There is only so much block building I can take in a day! I found you through Jennie (a baby and two schnoodles) and just wanted to say hi. Lexie and Dylan are absolutely adorable. Your daughter and my daughter (okay, she's not my daughter, she's my 9 yr old dog) share the Bean/Beanie nickname :) Good luck with the rest of your pregnancy!

  6. I feel you on the rain. I watch 3 kids plus my own two so all this rain is killing us too! We've been crafting it up quite a bit. I hope you and little nugget are doing okay. The pics of your kids made me smile.

  13. Oh my gosh, we are going nuts! The long snowy winter followed by a cold rainy spring is just too much!!! It has to get sunny soon... right?! That is a great shot of Lexie - she looks like she knows what she is doing :) Glad to hear that your glucose test is behind you!

  14. you guys are falling apart!!! Be careful. Is your hamster extra-large? Although, I have not been around a lot of hamsters lately.

    It has been nice and sunny here. Sorry to say :D

  16. Love the pic of Lexie painting her toes! How cute!

    My boys are into pirates now too. Disney has a pirate cartoon on in the mornings and the boys love it.

    Oh the glucose test...I never had an issue with it until my last pregnancy. I really thought I'd get sick after that one. Gag.

    Still praying those contractions ease up!

    I hope those contractions get with the program and quit!

  22. The pedicure is too cute! And I can so relate on the accident-prone thing, ha! But a wee bit more dangerous when pregnant, no?
