the boys

The boys have been busy busy busy this summer. Both boys are in semi-private swim lessons at the Y. Mason did an art camp for a couple of days and was a pirate and a knight! Both boys have M0ther's Day 0ut on Thursdays (mommy's alone time) thru July. Mason is also doing a sports camp on Fridays thru the first week of August.
I have had a few OB appointments and Max is busy growing and growing. We cannot wait to see who he looks and acts like.
We have had some craziness around the house as well. We are busy getting ready for Max. So, we painted the master bedroom (I know - Max wouldn't care but Mommy is busy nesting). Ran satellite to the formal living room so mommy and daddy can hang out away from toys at night. Redid the boys closet to better accommodate two boys clothes and toys. Moved extra unused furniture out of the garage so that the boys toys fit more easily. What else..... oh yeah, the problems.
We realized last Sunday that we have a major leak in our master shower. We have some damage to the subfloor that has to be replaced. The shower has to be completely demolished to fix the wood. So, we are doing a full renovation to the bath. The 50-year old existing tile is impossible to replace and is ugly not our style. :) We also realized this weekend that our water heater was leaking. That was replaced today (Monday). So, we had a weekend without hot water. Just for the record, I would not have been a good housewife/mom before hot water heaters. Boiling water to give baths and wash dishes was no fun!
Otherwise, things are great. Nice and calm. Nothing really going on. :) hehe!!!

It has been way too long. I know I say this often lately, but things are so busy busy busy around here.
Potty training is going great. Miles went all day today and stayed dry and clean. Yippee! I am so happy that I will only have 1 in diapers at a time!!!
Moving two boys into one room is not going great. It is 10pm and Miles is still awake. He is in his big boy bed in Mason's room, but talking away. Mason is sacked out. Thankfully. But, Mommy is tired and needs the mental break of knowing all her little chicks are sleeping soundly in their beds and I can turn off my brain for a few hours before putting myself to bed as well. I am not getting that break lately.
Our to-do list is a mile long. There are so many things that I need done and some that I really want done before Max arrives. I know that they do not have to be done by then, but I also know the havoc that a newborn throws on a family. So, I know the things that do not get done before he arrives (ie: painting our master bedroom) will not happen for quite a long time.
I am tired.
I am stressed out.
I am nesting.
I am suffering from crazy pregnancy brain.
Here is a funny story to illustrate my pregnancy brain. Today, Miles had swim lessons at the Y at 10am. I decided to go a little early to get a workout in before. I got the boys dressed and all our swim stuff packed. I got to the Y early, checked the boys into the kid's area, and went into the gym. A friend then had to point out to me that I had my flip-flops on rather than running shoes. Yeah. Kinda helps to have the right shoes to workout in.
On a happy note, the last appointment I had with my OB (last Friday) went well. Max sounds great, is growing right on schedule, and everything is great with my health as well. At my next appt I have my glucose test to check for gestational diabetes and we will also schedule the c-section date. This pregnancy is going by SO fast. I can hardly believe that in 9 more days, I will be in the 3rd trimester. Yeah, let's not talk about that right now.
