We made it this far....

So bummed I am 34 weeks and laying in a hospital bed. I really thought I was going to make it until March.

I was admitted to the hospital on Thursday and am hoping to go as long as my labs look fine sometime today.

I have a hard time sitting still and hope I can do it at home I would really like to have him stay in until 36 weeks.

I am so lucky we have received nothing but calls and texts on be half of us and our kids! I appreciate it and will be calling in all favors.

I am so bad at slowing down and asking for help. But I know I have so much family and friends who have offered to step up. Thanks so much! We feel the love and blessings and are so excited to rest and get this little one here safely. So if you have any good book or movie recommendations send them my way! We all know I don't sit still well at all!!

Happy Heart Day!!

We already know I love any excuse for a theme and some celebrating. Valentine's day is one of my favorites! It was a VERY crazy with the start of construction and sick sick sick kids but I still had to celebrate..........
We started the morning with pink pancakes.......not such a hit. My kids freak out when I change the color of things but I am determined for them to like it :) I saw this idea on a blog and thought it was so cute we had yummy yummy pizza, I cut all the pepperoni's in the shape of hearts the boys thought I was silly but really liked it!

Jeff love's Pina Colada's so I surprised him with some. These glasses always make me laugh we got them in the dollar bin on our first anniversary for sparkling cider. They make the drinks so much more fun!!!
Valentine's also marks the anniversary of us getting engaged! Jeff absolutely shocked me with a gorgeous new ring. I couldn't believe it.....still can't. It is gorgeous. It is a combined vday, birthday last baby gift. Thanks babe! I felt like a jerk because all I got Jeff for Vday was a dodger shirt. But he swears he loves it!

We never got to officially go out and celebrate with all the craziness right now but hopefully we will get in a date before Rhys comes!

I got this idea of my friend Autumn's blog for kids valentine's.....for some reason I can't get the final version to upload from photoshop......I added words for each kid and then punched holes in there hands and put a sucker. They were a big I have to come up with something for next year!

My friend Bethany and I hosted our annual Vday party I love love love planning parties for the little kids they are so cute and have such a good time. We had an awesome turn out and I can't even believe how many kids we have these days! Next up......Easter!!!

These are only about half of the kids. They are getting so big compared to the first year we did it!

The boys were so excited to have there first fun dips.....I know lame Mom I really try to limit the candy they eat especially Ryder he is a crazy person on sugar and really there is already so much sugar in everything else! They were in heaven .....until Sawyer got sugar in his eye...melt down!

We had a great day or days of LOVE filled things. I love my boys and am so lucky to get to spend my life with them!!

33 Weeks......Is that really me??

The other day while at the park helping Noah ride his I caught my reflection......YIKES! Some days I look in the mirror and think wow I am going to burst. Other days I feel like my belly is shrinking. It is so weird. I can't believe that we could literally have a new baby anytime.

Things I will miss.....
:Feeling Rhys kick. He is a bruiser I love feeling him first thing in the morning!
:The know the you don't have to do ___________ because you are pregnant.
:How sweet strangers are to you when you are pregnant.
:Having a place to hold my phone it rests perfectly on my belly.
:My body?? I know did I really just say that....but really I have loved my pregnancy body this time around.
:The boys and Jeff talking to my belly. They all love to say HI to the baby
Things I won't miss.....
:nightly leg cramps
:being stuffed up for months
:peeing every 5 minutes
:nasty face acne and oily skin
I am so looking forward to getting everything ready the next few weeks. I am getting so anxious for little Rhys to get here!!!
