Big Boy Room

We now officially have Emmett in a Big Boy Bed!
It turned out to be easier than I thought it would be, it only took about a week of having the bed in his room before we were able to move the crib out.  I am happy it was a smooth transition because I really wanted the crib and all baby stuff out of his room before the new baby arrives.  I just think it will be easier for him if he doesn't feel like, hey there is a new baby here and he is stealing all my stuff haha. 

Here is Emmett's Room

 He is loving playing lego lately.

Below is the new baby's room
About 4 and a half weeks to go before baby gets here.
I asked Emmett are you ready to meet the baby? and he said, Yes lets go get him!  I said he is here in my tummy and you can talk to him now.  Emmett said, Hi baby I am your BROTHER!

Mini Race Car Driver

A few weeks ago we went to see my Dad's race car while all the guys were getting ready for Bonneville.  Emmett decided to wear his driving suit.  He really thought he was going to drive the car.  He even said where is the steering wheel? HAHA

Anyways I forgot to post about this but I guess its better late than never =)

Outside Fun

We have been trying to get outside and have fun everyday.  Even if its only for a short time.  It has been pretty hot out lately so its hard for me to stand in the sun being 8 1/2 months pregnant LOL.

Soon enough it will cool down and the baby will come and I will be back to my normal energy levels.

Last weekend we did lots of fun stuff, we went to the park, and we went swimming.

 The above picture is from last week when Emmett and I went to a local park before doing some shopping.
 I was lucky to find a bench in the shade! After the park we went to lunch at Chick Fil A.
 After all that activity Emmett was pooped!
I only have 6 weeks till the baby is here so I am officially on the count down! Can't wait!

Around Here

A lot has been going on around here.  Nothing really amazing just day to day activities.  Grant finally came home after a 12 day work trip up north.  We were so excited to get him home and be back to normal.  That was the longest he has been away and it was really hard on Emmett.  He kept saying " dada is going to surprise me tonight", He just did understand that he was going to be gone that long.

I only have 7 weeks left till the baby is due and because of that Grant does not have to go on any more trips at least till after the baby is born and by then this project should be done.

The other night Emmett put his face up to my belly and said "I'm Emmett, I am your brother and best friend"  This was such a sweet thing to say, I hope they can be best friends.

A few days ago we set up Emmett with a big boy bed!  He is so happy and excited to have the new setup although the first few nights he still slept in the crib.  The last 2 nights he has successfully slept in the bed and has taken his naps in there!  I was so worried about changing his routine, but he has been fine! 

Here is the big boy bed.  We have now relocated it to the other side of the room and he has new sheets and a new blanket for it.
 Here I am in the kitchen LOL
 Grant and Emmett did a swim lesson last Friday.

He is getting really good at swimming. (for a 2 year old)

32 Weeks Pregnant

I am 32 weeks pregnant and that means only 8 weeks left!  Its going faster now, hard to believe in just 8 weeks we will have a little baby added to our family.  I can't wait!  Number one I am all set up and ready and excited for the baby, but I am also ready to have my normal body back!

In a lot of ways this pregnancy has been different from the first one.  I think its because I am less focused on being pregnant, I don't tend to look up every stage of the pregnancy and since we are not having a baby shower and I already have everything there is less planing and more living.

I do feel the same in lots of ways to the first time around.
  • Feeling lots of kicking all day and night
  •  I have probably gained about the same amount of weight as last time
  • I feel uncomfortable when I eat too much food, its like there is no room for food in there
  • My back is killing me all the time! When I tell the Dr he says oh yeah that's what happens
  • The baby is in the right position head down and really low
New things
  • We have Emmett who is so excited about the new baby coming
  • Emmett likes to say good morning and good night to the baby belly
  • Its now hard to carry Emmett, he is just too heavy to carry for too long
  • I can't stand or walk for very long or my back starts to really kill me 
  • This time around I am anemic, so I have been really careful to take my vitamin and trying to eat more meat
  • I guess because of being anemic I was so exhausted most of the time, it was hard to not sit down after just a little activity, but I am feeling better everyday 


 32 weeks
