Christmas Eve was spent over at Adam's parents house, where there were some other family members. Adam's Grandmother and her husband, and his aunt, uncle and cousin. So Dylan got to meet some of his extended family, though I bet that he won't be remembering that! It was a great time, we did presents and a full turkey dinner. We couldn't have asked for a better time, even Dylan had a good time. He was so good, slept most of the time, then ate, then was awake for presents. Which was good, because he got all kinds of things. For a three week old, he did well! Got all kinds of great books from his Aunt Laura including but not limited to: Where the Wild Things Are, The Velveteen Rabbit, and , some clothes, and some toys!
Christmas Day we spent at our house, my mom and sister joined us for an afternoon of a ham dinner, and presents. It was nice getting two full Christmas dinners so we weren't limited to having to pick turkey or ham! Again, Adam and I couldn't have asked for a better Christmas day, which was probably cut short due to nap time, for both me and my mom. I just can't hardly make it through the day without a nap!
Lastly, yesterday, we headed back over to Adam's parents house for a small family reunion if you will. Grandma Lou's new husband Richard's family had come into town. Some were local, others came from Chicago, and Atlanta. So Adam's mom hosted everyone and it was a good time, with lots of food. Everyone was amazed at how good Dylan was, he basically slept the whole time, and well everyone wanted to wake him up, so a little before we left I woke him up so that his Grandma Suzan could show him off, that is of course, until he had a dirty diaper then he was passed off to Mom and Dad!
Needless to say, we're tired of eating, as well as just overly tired. I feel like I could sleep all day, but sadly, I have this little tiny human that will not let me do that like I used too!:) My next post will be about my new " toy" and no, I don't mean Dylan. Sidenote: If I hear one more person refer to him as a toy, I might scream!

2) Bending over while pregnant. The only time I had a problem with this was when I had eaten to much and well, I couldn't breath. Well try bending over holding a baby who has no head control to speak of! It's VERY hard... I've gotten good at picking things up with my feet, that is if I'm sitting on the couch!

I did enjoy the movie, but I knew it wouldn't be as good as the book, seeing that I've never seen a movie that was a good as the book, but I did enjoy the first movie too, and I own it, and fully instead on owning the second, third, fourth and fifth!!!:)

Today was my 36 week, yup only four more weeks, checkup. Once again my blood pressure was up. Not really that high, but higher than it usually is. Though, he isn't really worried about it, because I don't have any other signs of a problem. No swelling, no headaches, and overall, I feel fantastic. I've got some energy, and I'm gaining the right amount of weight. So, he'll keep an eye on it and we'll go from there. His advice, do as little as possible, rest, drink water, and put my feet up. I told him, ONLY if he insisted! haha.
Now that you have my medical information ( which I know you wanted) I'll say it again. ONLY FOUR MORE WEEKS.. at most, maybe less. Scary thought. Adam has been on me since Friday to pack our hospital bag, I just haven't gotten around to it. Maybe one of these day's. Other than that, he is still working, though he will be done next Thursday, which is good, because I've made plans for us to go and see New Moon, the Monday after it comes out. Which happens to be the same day as our massages:)
We finished all of our classes, we are now in the know about, Infant CPR and Safety, Baby Care and Breastfeeding ( which I know ALOT of now, a 3.5 hour class will do that to you) We have one last thing at the hospital on the 24th, which is just a car seat check, to make sure we have the base installed correctly. Apparently the area has a 99 % rate of having them in wrong. So it's probably a good idea that we do it, even though it looks REALLY easy. We'll see!
Until next time...

Two years ago yesterday we brought Bailey home! She was just a tiny little thing. It was a long process to get her, I had been looking at puppies forever, and for some reason, that week I really got the bug. I probably sent Adam at least, 100 pictures of puppies up for adoption in the area, until FINALLY I sent him her. His response? " You finally sent me one I couldn't resist, go ahead and fill out the application!"
Delaware puppy rescue was the place we got her, so we were required to fill out an application, and do the whole process, I was terrified because they said they wouldn't adopt out to anyone under the age of 25, we were 22 at the time. But my compelling argument that we were not your " typical" 22 year olds must have worked. They wanted us to come out and see if we were a good fit for " Ayme" That was her name then. That night we drove to Delaware ( not far from Philly) to take a look. I held her, then passed her off to Adam, who well she licked ( the sign of things to come) love at first sight if you will. So we wrote the check, then off we went to Petsmart for some baby essentials. She made it all the way to the parking lot in Philly before peeing on me! haha, that should have been my sign. Then it was off to meet her brother and sister, Louie and siren.
Bailey and I have a different relationship then Adam and her do. Most of ours involves sleeping.:)( please excuse me in these pictures)
Adam's relationship with Bailey is well... a little disturbing. She licks him. ALL. THE. TIME. We once tried to time her to see if she would stop on her own, she didn't. She swabbed his face for 5 minuets before we made her stop. ( Sorry for sharing that honey) But he loves her, and I watch him with her, and I can't EVEN imagine how fantastic he is going to be with our son. I don't have all the pictures on this computer that I wanted to put up of him with her, but here are a few, goodies! ( Again, ignore Adam in these, it was his morning wake up call)
Notice where the rest of her body is in these pictures.
She turned into... well a dog, who barks, is afraid of everything, doesn't eat very much, really skinny,has weird ears,sleeps under the covers and is afraid of the grass!!! I tell her everyday she is lucky Adam and I adopted her, because if we didn't, she might have been taken back!

I only shop sales too. You will not find me buying ANYTHING clothes wise to put on him. Babies grow way to fast, and though I am afraid of the naked baby, I won't, I repeat won't pay full price!
So here are a few of my other finds. Equally as adorable. And yes, many things he has, have animals on them. I seem to buy those, but refuse to buy anything with a sports ball on them, strange!
It has a tiny squirrel on it. He also has a few other onsies, that are " green" one has a little footprint on it and it says " My carbon footprint" Gap, gotta love it!
This is one of his only " outfits" picture him with an orange onsie ( if they make those) under it. To Die for!!!
One last thing that I just can't spend money on ( which is probably a good thing) is baby shoes. I want to buy like every pair that I find, and well have managed to only buy 1 pair. They are for the summer-ish months, because they are a little bigger, but OMG, I want some for myself. Even the soles are adorable, probably because he won't be doing much walking in them!
One of these days I'll post about the fair, but I have to buy a new card reader for my little camera, maybe this weekend!

One bad thing about following recipes is that you get WAY TOO MUCH food for just two people. I'll be so happy when we have kids that can actually put a dent in the stuff I make! Luckily though, the things I made last week were GREAT reheated! Lets see, I have made, Chicken Enchiladas, which were amazing (I could literally eat Mexican Food everyday!) I made, Baked Ziti, which, in the words of Rachael Ray, " Could feed an army" I think we ate that for about 3 meals, plus I had it for lunch one day. With that I made homemade french bread that was pretty good! Um... man, it's been over a week now, I can't remember what else I made. I made pot roast in the crock pot, though there wasn't much of that left.
Then on Sunday, we both woke up wanting to do something in the kitchen, so from scratch chocolate cake muffins were on the menu, and since then we've both eaten WAY TOO MANY!!!

First up: The Stork Sak, which I assume is the only one that Adam will be caught dead with!:)
This is how it attaches to the stroller. Which is nice, so it doesn't take up storage space underneath! It came with a changing pad, and it has two built in thermal bottle holders, to keep them warm or cold!
This one also hooks onto the stroller, but it also has two more straps, a short strap for carrying right underneath my arm, then a longer shoulder strap, so many options. Also has insulated bottle holders. Also came with a black wipes case!:)
Cross Town Clutch: Mind you, when I bought this I thought it would be much smaller. Oh well, I still love it!
Here is the embroidered detail, for some reason it is uploading sideways, even though it isn't sideways in the picture. I'm baffled!
So there you have it. ALL 3 of my diaper bags. Although I haven't used them yet, I highly recommend any of the brands. They are all very well made, and pleasant to look at:) Stay tuned for some adorable baby clothes!

~ Adam got a short term job
~ I got my ( previously mentioned) Diaper bags in the mail
~ While Adam is at work, I work hard to buy baby things that we " Need"

Hopefully since I've told you about thing, it will motivate me to actually post pictures and stories of our adventures!!!
I'm off for a prenatal Massage ( If anyone needs the name of a FANTASTIC massage Therapist in Dallas let me know!) Then, I might stop by Sprinkles and pick up some cupcakes for dessert tonight!:) And maybe an afternoon snack!
