It's 4 am!

Yep, I think my body is getting me ready for what is about to happen in 2 months!! I can't believe it is coming up and to be honest I am a little nervous. It must be the scared of the un-known. There are somethings I do know...
#1. It can't be too bad if woman have more than on child
#2. God wouldn't give me something I couldn't handle
and that's about all I feel I know right now.

We are going to two classes this month, one a child care and the other for nursing. Nursing scares me too, I just hope I can be strong and stick with it even if it doesn't come easy for me.

As far as feeling...I feel pretty good, can't wait til I can bend down and put my boots on without becoming out of breath:)

I am a little scared of having a big baby, since all three of my mom's were over 8 lbs with my brother almost being 11!! I did past the 3 hours Gestational diabetes test (which was awful by the way) I don't understand how they think it is okay to have a pregnant woman fast for over 15 hours! Thank goodness Ryan was there to catch me when I fainted in the waiting room:) But again it was all worth it, because I am Gestational Diabetes free! I still am a little concerned about the big baby thing so I have cut down on the breads/carbs and am trying to eat tons of fruits and veggies. It's better for the little man anyway.

The Peanut is kicking a ton, the other night Ryan had his head on my stomach it was really neat to see his head move up and down because of how strong our little man's kicks were.  He's going to be a tough one:)

 I wanted to post a few holiday family photos before it is February...

The three big babies

I was in charge of the desserts this year, I made a peppermint cheese cake, cherry cheese cake and Oreo balls..yum

I don't know why I feel the need to hold my stomach for every picture, I think it is pretty obvious there is a baby in there:)

One of my favorite photos, I think my dad is due about the same time a me.

Christmas morning, next year I'll be holding the little man!!

Adding on to The Little Man's nursery

Meet Mertle the Turtle and Henry the Horse

30 before 35

I have been catching up on some blogs over Christmas break and one of my favorites, http://www.emyselfandi.com had a great idea about actually putting down some goals that she would like to accomplish before 30, that gives me a little less then 2 years, and I want some more time, so I'm changing it to 30 before 35 which seems a little more accomplishable for my life right now.  This is going to be an ongoing post so here is what I have so far.
1. Become a mom
2. Catch up and keep up with my blog
3. Go on a cruise
4. Teach my son how to snow board
5. Stay in a cabin in Utah
6. Have $20,000 in our savings
7. Figure out my sewing machine and actually use it!
8. Knit my baby a blanket
9. Take my husband to a Bears Game
10. Finish my masters
11. Teach a college course
12. Take a road trip across country with my family
