Almost There... I Hope

Two days past the due date! I seriously had myself convinced it would be before. Oh well. I finished work on Tuesday and have spent the BEST few days with my two boys and friends around the dorms. It has been refreshing and so fun to just enjoy our life up here (even the snow in the middle of May). We have gotten the house totally ready, Keegan is SOOO excited for his brother to be here! Now he just has to come. So please hurry baby!!!

Mother's Day and All that Jazz

So no pics. Too lazy. Just wanted to jot down a few things I have been thinking in case I ever get around to making all these posts into a book thing.

First of all, I am sitting here feeling this kid kick the crap out of me right now. As soon as he gets here, he might be getting his first spanking:) But I know as soon as he is here, I am going to miss having him inside me. That is the most comforting feeling. Knowing he is in me and that nothing from the outside world can get to him. However, I can't wait to see his face and rub his fuzzy head and pat his perfect little bottom as I hold him over my shoulder. I am also excited to try a gadget that my sister-in-law got me. One of the worst things about changing diapers is the smell and feeling left on your fingers after using butt cream. Mariah found a brand that uses a new kind of dispenser. It's in a deodorant shaped tube with little holes at the top. So you just turn and click until enough comes out, then rub it on, like deodorant. Awesome right!!
And I can't wait to see his big brother in action. I was thinking about Keegan last night, as I lay in bed not sleeping, and what a special boy he is. I know every mom thinks their child is special but he is just so dang sweet and calm and wonderful (mostly). Anyways, thinking about him, I remembered when he was born, how I just knew that he had a really special relationship with his grandma Pam. I think that is why he is so like Jamon. Everyone says Jamon is so like his mother and they had a really strong relationship too. I don't know what goes on before these babies get here, but I am always going to believe that keegan spent his time hanging out with his Daddy's Mom. I wonder if I am going to feel that way about our new little guy as well. Honestly though, I have the feeling that these two boys are going to be very different!
Anyways, I think (or maybe it's just wishful thinking) that maybe this boy is coming sooner than we thought. I can't imagine having to wait and feel this uncomfortable until next thursday! Cross you fingers for us:)
So I have to mention Mother's Day. I have been so blessed to be surrounded by great mothers (mine especially). They have taught me to be more selfless, giving, honest, loving, etc. There are still so many things for me to learn about being a mom, and hopefully me not working next year will give me the chance to work on some of those things. Oh yeah, did I mention I didn't renew my teaching contract. I am officially a stay-at-home mom when this kid get's here. Wish me luck:) Anyways, It was just a really special Sunday where I got to think about some wonderful women and feel the spirit. My awesome jamon made me feel so special too. I woke up to breakfast in bed from my two boys. We got ready for church together, had great meetings, came home, took some naps, and then I did a little nesting (that happens almost every day). I got the most gorgeous roses and a foot spa too.
Now that I finally had the chance to blog, I went on and on. And now I am falling asleep and it's only 7:30. Pathetic. Better go pay attention to the boy before bed:)
