I am a mama moose.

I am now a moose. Well, my belly feels like a moose anyway. This belly has suddenly become it's own entity, and it's ALIVE! It feels like this kid is trying to break out of jail.... so cute. I love it. Have I mentioned I love being pregnant? I miss it already and it's not even over yet.

But my widget says 19 days left, and that's IF I make it! IF! I am starting to get super excited and a little nervous. I still don't know where to put the birthing tub?! I can't decide if I want to birth in my room, the baby's room, or the living room. I originally thought the living room because it's the largest room in the house and there is music available and family pics... but the more I think of it, the more I want to be able to hide away if I want to, and that means my bedroom. It's just so small... I dunno. I guess I will decide when I go into labor and stop worrying about it now.

I am at the point where I'm not sure what to do with myself. LOL - there is still plenty I can do, but the major projects are done and so now it is just sort of occupying time. I love this waiting game. I can't wait to see what this little one looks like, and if it's a boy or a girl! But for now, I just love feeling it dancing around in there, safe and sound. I love you baby.

34 Weeks and Rambling

Ok, so I skipped March. Bummer. I kept thinking I wanted to get on here and blog at least once, but the days are fleeting. And that is the point of me blogging - to capture moments in those fleeting times- but I guess for March I failed. Oh well, moving on.

My widget says I have 42 days to go. Crazy. Wow. I am 34 weeks this week, and I just don't understand where the time has gone, but I am still loving every minute of it. In fact, even more than before. As of March 1, my doc put me on disability for the rest of my pregnancy. I am in H.E.A.V.E.N. I love love love love being home with my babies and I just want to do this forever. It is the most rewarding work in the world and it just feels so good to hug and hold them as much as I want. Sooooo, I have made it my mission to make this a reality. 

My plan is to go back to work in September, finish out the year, and quit my job beginning January 2011. I plan to do makeup, and maybe another side job to bring in money. In the meantime, I need to create and follow a strict budget, save away some money, build a makeup website, get business cards, and create a marketing program for myself. Those things I need to get started on yesterday, because once the baby is here I doubt I'll have a bunch of time.

In other news, we have made improvements to the house and I'm very happy about it. We painted the living room, got new curtains and rug, and over the weekend we painted Zyan's room and gutted it of junk...I am feeling more and more ready for this baby as the days go by that I get stuff done. These are things I have been wanting to do forever but with a full time job and a family I just didn't have the energy. My house feels good, and so does my mind.

Yesterday was Easter, and Adlai and Zyan had a blast. Adlai really got the hang of hunting for eggs and we had quite a few hunts as usual. I'll be uploading pictures soon.

Alright, off to the doctor to check this baby's growth. What a boring post but there's nothing profound coming out of me today, so what you see is what you get!
