New Blog!

Okay, basically, I was having some issues with unwanted readers on my last blog. Some people were reading my blog and taking my pictures and then posting them on Facebook without telling me or even asking me if they could, and they were pictures of ME.

I struggled with what to do. The way I saw it, I had 3 options: make my blog private (which I don't like), stop blogging altogether, or make a new blog and NOT link it on my old one like I had with my second one. So, as annoying as it is, I just went with creating a new blog.

I tried to import all of my old posts into this blog, and I got most of them, but the comments are weird and if you try to leave a comment on any old posts, you get a weird error message. Really, I'm not concerned about that and I have no idea how to fix it, so I'm just going to go with it!

Coming to you live!!

From my very own computer!! Haha, why do I feel like my life is better with a computer? I have no idea, but I do. It took me about a year, but I finally talked Lee into letting me get a MacBook. It's definitely going to take some getting used to, but so far I like it a whole lot :)
We had a very productive weekend, and I, for one, love daylight savings time even if it means losing an hour. We registered for baby stuff on Friday. That was perhaps the most stressful thing I've ever done iItalicn my life. We made it about an hour and then I was exhausted and a little frustrated so we left and finished up online.

We also picked out new carpet for the bedrooms! You know you're old when you're excited for new carpet :) We have to go back (hopefully) this week to finalize our selections and then schedule a time for them to come and install it. Yay!

Let me tell you, I get worn out pretty easily these. On Saturday, we went to 2 carpet places, lunch, and one store in the mall and there is no way I could have done anything else if we had needed to. On Sunday, I ran 2 fairly quick errands and I was so tired I came home and laid on the couch! So weird. My feet also hurt a lot. And I mean, they hurt. Not like I'm wearing uncomfortable shoes, it just feels like I've been on them all day when I have only been on them for as little as 30 minutes. My hands are also swollen and my wedding rings are getting reallllly snug on there!

I have also started to lose my mind a little. I haven't been particularly forgetful, mostly because I'm so paranoid I'm going to forget something that I compulsively write everything down and make list after list. But, I have a hard time formulating sentences. Someone can ask me a simple question and I will have absolutely no idea what to say! I also have a hard time telling stories. I can get a couple of words out and then I am silent because I don't know what I was going to say or I get distracted or something! Haha, this is something that Lee has ALWAYS done. He can never get his stories out and I get frustrated and I'm like "AND?!?!" And now I'm the one doing it!

Cooper moves around ALL the time now! I've mostly heard it described as "fluttering" or bubbles, but to me, it feels just like a twitch. And I feel it almost 24 hours a day. I swear, he is only still for a few hours while I'm sleeping and other than that, he is going crazy in there. It makes me want to watch Look Who's Talking because I wonder what he's doing in there! Lee has gotten to see a lot of movement. He can see it from across the room, that's how much Cooper moves around. The other night, my entire belly jolted to one side and Lee was like "Whoa, was that you or him?!" And it was definitely not me!

This was the other night, just a few days past 27 weeks.
I hate the pictures with my face because I feel like I look so worn out, but I usually am because I always forget to take a picture until it's time to go to bed.

Here are my disgusting puppy dogs. They have a hair appointment on Thursday and that's about 3 weeks too late, ha! I'm a bad mom, but in my defense, I have a hair appointment on Saturday that's at least a month too late, so there's that.

Well, hello there

It's been a while, yes? Well, they blocked all social networking sites at work. I know, wtf, right? That's what I thought. And technically we don't have a home computer. Lee has a work laptop that he brings home. He is pretty, uh, busy on it in the evenings, you know, with "work" things such as reading about football for hours at a time. Yes, very important business, so you can understand how it might be difficult for me to borrow the computer for my very important business. :) But, I'm going to try and get back into posting more often, hopefully once a week or so. Because I know that you all miss me. :) I have been able to keep up with all of my favorite blogs. I can get to most of them, but I cannot see pictures (which is really the best part!) and I can't comment on any either!

Let's see, what has happened in the past 2 months? A lot, and not a lot at the same time. Let's start with the obvious. When I last posted, I looked something like this:

And today, I look something like this:

Just a little different :) I am 26 weeks this week, only 14 to go! I had a doctor's appointment today. This time when I stepped on the scale, I couldn't see my weight because my belly was in the way! First time that has happened. Turns out, that it might be a good thing that I can no longer see what I weigh. So far I have gained 23 lbs, 8 of which was in the last 4 weeks, haha. You can totally tell in my face :( As much as I would like to blame the baby, let's just be honest that it's really due to the fact that Easter candy is now out (Cadbury Mini Eggs are my ultimate weakness in life) (I might have eaten a bag a day for a few days) and my girl scout cookie order has arrived. I didn't order 9 boxes. No, no. I would never do that.

And here I was at 20 weeks:

The day we found out that this little one: (look at that little nose, it's my favorite part :) )
is a BOY!! To be honest, we were super surprised, because we were so sure that it was a girl. Or, as Lee put it, he was "preparing himself" for it to be a girl! Haha. He practically jumped out of his seat when she said "it looks like you guys are having a little boy" I mean, seriously, he was trying hard to contain his excitement because I was, not exactly disappointed, but just surprised. No joke, I asked the tech if she was sure! She said she was and showed us the goods. So that was about 6 weeks ago and now we absolutely cannot wait to meet our little Cooper Ethan. I mean, seriously, he can't get here soon enough, I am so ready to hold him!

Annnd, that's about all that has happened! I haven't done a thing to his room! We did order furniture, and much to our surprise, it was here in less than a week! We thought surely it would be 4-6 weeks for delivery, but it was more like 4-6 days. I have a few ideas of things that I want to do for his room, so I'll probably do a post on that sometime soon.
Other than that, I've been studying a lot for this real estate class I'm taking, surviving work by counting down the days to my maternity leave, and doing a whole lot of nothing.
This weekend we are registering at Babier R Us. I'm a little intimidated by this whole process, since I really have absolutely no idea what we will need. Usually I'm a huge planner, researcher, list-maker, etc. But, this time we are winging it. I've researched the big things, like safety features and such, but other than that, we're just going to go up and down every aisle and touch everything.
I'm also going to Oklahoma City this weekend for the John Mayer concert / my best friend's birthday!
AND we are going to look at new carpet for the bedrooms! VERY exciting, huh? I am excited because I have been begging for new carpet every since I just had to rip up the old carpet to reveal our very damaged hardwoods :) Lee told me that I shouldn't have. I never listen to anyone, I'll admit it :)
