37 weeks and more Randoms

  • Today we are officially considered full term. Which I just found that out, I thought that you were considered full term at 38 weeks not 37, but hey I will take it!
  • My weight gain has not been too bad, at 28 lbs so far and think only a few more pounds will be added til I have him. I tend to lose weight towards the end.
  • His room is almost completely finished, just a few things here and there I still want to do. If he came now though it would be fine, we will get around to it.
  • All of his clothes are cleaned, his car seat and all other stuff is all clean now.
  • I start training my "replacement" at work this week for when I'm out. J thinks I need to stop working now and just enjoy my time but that is not me. I plan to work til I have him and I would rather it be that way. I'm not sure what I would do at home all day while the boys are at school.
  • We literally cannot wait to see this little fella. He is such a blessing to our family and I can't wait to have him in our arms and love on him! He has no idea how many people are so excited to meet him!!
  • My work is having a "sprinkle" for me this week. I was stunned when they even mentioned it. I mean this is my 3rd child and I think it is something you just don't do, but they insisted. It is a small lunch for the company and small gifts. That is this Thursday so that is something I'm looking forward too. After this "sprinkle" I will really know what exactly I need to go get for him. I know I don't need much at all, just really nursing supplies for me and him.
  • I have been nesting for sure. Saturday I spent 4 hours cleaning this house. I think J is nesting too :), he said he's not but he sure is trying to get the yard in order before he comes. This weekend he is laying sod.. that is a huge job and I'm proud of him for having the motivation!!
  • It is a joy to see Will and Luke so excited about Westin. You never know how older siblings will react when another child is brought into the world, but so far they are so excited about him getting here and they talk about him daily!
  • I must say that at this time in my life I could not be happier. Everything is really together. I hate to say that in fear something will happen, but my marriage, children, family, finances, job and life in general could not be much better. It can be stressful bringing a child into the world but I'm so blessed that at this time I'm keeping it all together. At least for now! I know come 2 weeks when Westin arrives, I might be writing the complete opposite!
  • Westin's birthday has been scheduled for April 18th. I can't believe in just 2 weeks and 1 day I will be a mother to 3 perfect boys. I really hope he stays in til then, I think all of my boys were very content until they were forced out of my womb!
I hope you all are having a blessed week, we will talk soon!

She says Nevada- El Salvador cull with Yemen senators?
What are they culling?
And why are Rocky and Ada pointing fingers at Harper?
