Bump 2 Baby Event

There is a great event going on over at Minnesota Mama's and J Leigh Designz

I am entering as many times as I can.  It looks like an awesome event.  If you are expecting a baby or if you have a baby you should make sure to enter.

Weekend and Monday

I had a great weekend this past weekend.  We went to Christian's family reunion on Saturday afternoon and had food and Christian played Horseshoes and Cornhole.  After we left there we went to my brother's girlfriend's graduation party.  We got to go swimming and Ashlynn was such a daredevil in the water lol.  She was jumping in where she couldn't touch and not letting anyone near her when she did lol.  Gave me a heart attack the first few times she did it.  On Sunday we rearranged the living room and I went through all the boxes of Ashlynn's baby clothes to give away some.  I am still cleaning up the living room but it will be done later today.

Yesterday was Monday and it was Ashlynn's first day back at Preschool.  She loves going to school.  I am so glad she does.  She played outside till the bus got here.  Of course it was late but I expected that.  What I did not expect was that when they did stop for them to tell me they did not actually have Ashlynn on the list.  Good thing Sharon was the aide and knew Ashlynn was suppose to ride again this year.  Ashlynn had a blast at school yesterday.  She got home and told us all about it.  Then last night we had soccer practice.  She did do a little better with practice.  She was out on the field for awhile.  She did get frustrated and came off the field too though...still working on her staying on the field for as long as she is suppose to.  I had a talk with her last night and she feels like she isn't getting enough attention from Daddy while they are practicing (Daddy is the coach).  So I talked to him and hopefully he will try a little harder with her at practice on Thursday.  Although on Thursday I know she is going to be worn out before practice.  She will get off the bus at 4:13 and then we will have to hurry and change clothes and head to gymnastics and then as soon as gymnastics is over we have to go straight to soccer. 

Countdown as of today is 59 days till Colten will be here.  I can not wait to meet this little guy.  I went to the Chiropractor yesterday and told him about the pain I was having really low on my back and he adjusted it and I did sleep better last night.  I still didn't sleep great but it was better than I have been lately.

30 Weeks Pregnant

So today I am now 30 weeks.  I can not wait to meet this little guy.  I have 9 more weeks till he will be here unless I go into labor before them.  I have a doctor's appointment next week and an ultrasound set for the following week.  My baby shower is being held on Sept. 11th.  Can't wait.  Now my only problem is would be I am exhausted.  I am getting no sleep at night because I can't get comfortable.  I literally don't fall asleep till about 4-5am.  Which means I am getting about between 2-4 hours of sleep a night.  I can not wait till Monday when Ashlynn goes back to school because I will be able to take a nap while she is gone.  She will be at school for about 4 hours.  She cannot wait till school starts.  We went to Open House last night and she didn't want to leave lol.  I am so glad it is Friday and that means the weekend is here and Christian will be home for the next 2 days.  I will definitely be taking a nap one or both days.  We do have a family reunion to go to on Saturday and possibly a graduation party for my brother's girlfriend.  So it is sort of a busy weekend but I think I can get some time in there to nap lol.

Happy Weekend!!!

Car insurance's stink and Emotional Days

So a few weeks ago I was at a friends house for a Bachelor/Bachelorette Party and when we were leaving the owner of the house decided to put his wife's SUV in the garage.  I was sitting in one spot waiting on someone else to pull out and he pulled out so fast and hit the back part of my van.  So at first he said he would pay for it out of pocket until we got the quote on how much it would cost.  So he puts in a claim with his insurance company.  No problem as long as I get it fixed.  Well I took my van to his insurance adjuster and they did an estimate which was $600 less than what my body shop needs to do the repairs.  They want to use Salvage parts on my van and I do not want them on my van because they are not safe.  So we have now been arguing with his insurance company for almost a week about Salvage vs. New.  They say all they have to do is find a shop willing to use salvage parts and then their job is done.  Well the shop I go to refuses to use Salvage (which i don't want anyways).  So finally today the supervisor says he will call the Body Shop I want to use and find out why he won't use Salvage and then make a decision...We find out the Body Shop is closed till Monday...So now I have to wait till Monday to find anything else out.  All I want is to get my van fixed...I have only had it for 1 1/2 years so far and at 2 years we can trade in for a new van (with a lower interest rate) so that is our plan but if they use Salvage parts on the van it makes it so it isn't as valuable when you trade it in.  I want my full trade in value so I can get a nicer van...

I am almost 30 weeks pregnant and so emotional right now...I spent almost all day crying yesterday after hearing from them they won't readjust the price to cover the body shop...Then of course Ashlynn was being a pistol.  She didn't listen at Soccer Practice (which her Daddy is the coach).  For some reason she listens to everything he says until other kids start showing up.  I think she doesn't like not having her daddy's full attention.  Well I got upset because she wasn't listening so I had to take her to the van...I ended up crying then too.  I don't know why but I just couldn't keep myself from crying yesterday.  I have 9 weeks left till I go in for my c-section...I can't wait to meet this little guy :)

Our life

So I thought I would give this blogging a try.  I have never really done it before but it is always good to try something new :)  I married my high school sweetheart Christian.  We have been married 11 years this year and we have a 5 year old little girl, Ashlynn.  We are expecting a little boy at the end of October.  I have the c-section scheduled for Oct. 29th.  I can't wait.  I am so excited we are having a boy this time.  His name will be Colten.  Colten will be the first boy on Christian's side of the family.  Everything with this pregnancy has been pretty good.  I was on bedrest with Ashlynn so not having those problems yet has been a blessing.  Ashlynn is going into her 3rd year of preschool this year.  She can not wait till school starts.  One more week.  She loves school and I am so glad she does.  She is getting more independent by the day and it is a great help for her to do those things on her own :)  She is playing soccer this fall and Daddy is her coach.  Not sure how well that is going to go but we will see.  I'm not sure if she likes it or not.  She says she does but during practice she gets upset and will quit playing and it is like pulling teeth to get her to go back onto the field.  Her first game is on Sept. 11th which is also the day we will be having a Baby Shower for Colten :)

So far that is all that is going on in our lives at the moment.
