Count Down!

As of today (unless God has other plans) we have 5 days until we welcome baby Marshall into our family. This Thursday, March 27th is our scheduled c-section day. We go in around 730am and are scheduled for 930am. So by lunch time we should be holding our new little bundle of joy. Please pray for us as we go through this special time. Pray for my sweet Mitchell that he will survive the few days without his mommy. I'm really worried about him only because he is with me ALL the time. My mom is the next best thing to Larkin and I and that is who he'll be spending the evenings with while we are in the hospital.

Right now I'm fighting a nasty head and chest cold. Unfortunately they don't want me taking anything so I'm roughing through it. My nights have been VERY restless. So needless to say I'm very tired and ready to get this little one here. I'm excited to see his sweet little face and to play with those little fingers and toes.

Oh the joys of a newborn!!! The joys of a little one until they turn 2 and start to test and push every limit. Yes that is where my Mitch is right now. Pushing ALL my buttons!!! Speaking of Mitch I better get back to tending to him before he turns the entire house upside down. (not kidding)

Oh today the day before Easter we got about 3 inches of snow. WELCOME SPRING!!! Have a Happy Easter and enjoy your day however you might be spending it.
I'll leave you with a picture of my sweet Mitchell being the next American Idol on his $3 consignment sale piano.

Rolling Around!!

If you read my myspace blog you'll notice this one to be very similar. I had to copy and paste because my sore, swollen fingers will not let me type this twice. But if not here we go, read and enjoy cuz it took a lot of work. LOL, J/K!!!!!!

As I sit to start to write this blog little Marshall in the womb is just rollling around like a crazy man. Our count down us begun and we are more than ready. I have 3 weeks until my c-section day on March 27th. Besides being utterly miserable and feeling VERY huge everything has actually been going good. I won't make this a wine blog but yea this go around has been a little harder. I have gained more weight (I will not disclose how much) and in different areas than I did with Mitch. My hands are swollen and I have not been able to wear my wedding bands for about a month now. Yup, I'm ready!!!

I'm sure we'll probably do at least one more picture taking session before Marshall arrives. Even though I'm far from being in the picture mood I'm sure I'll someday be happy to have them. I know I love looking back on the pictures of me pregnant with Mitch. It allowed me to create a beautiful scrapbook for him.

These days I hate to see Larkin off to work. He has been home for the past 2 days and it's been great. Mitch is very full of energy and house work has really been HARD WORK for me lately. I honestly love house work and keeping my home tidy but I find myself the past 2 weeks not caring as much. Horrible, I know!! Larkin is a fabulous husband and such great help. Mitch loves his Daddy being home too!!

My next appointment is on Tueday the 11th. It's my pre-opt for my section so I'll be sure to blog updates. Take care I'm praying for all of my girlfriends that are also pregnant.
