Poor guys...they have no idea that it is all my fault.....

Have you ever heard the expression "You can take the girl out of the country, but you can't take the country out of the girl"?
This could not be any more true, than when you apply it to Max and I. Most day's, around our house, you will see Max doing a lot of the cleaning, cooking, and coming to me with questions about how to fix the garbage disposal, what kind of col king to buy, and how to hang shelf's. I knew full well what I was getting into when I married my sweet man, and have said on may occasions "I like a little lady in my man". At times it is hard on his ego and he gets frustrated, that I'm more of a man in some ways, but for the most part we work together great! I truly enjoy knowing more than him when it comes to things, since he is much more book smart than I. I don't blame Max for not knowing "manly" things (and it's not for a lack of trying on his part), it is just how he was raised. He was raised in the city where when something breaks, you call someone to fix it. I grew up much the opposite. It breaks... you fix it. I was also lucky enough you have handy dad(s) and older brothers who taught me a few things.
Country girl and City boy went camping a little while ago and boy did our childhoods shine through!!! Max had NEVER been camping. Yes, NEVER. How on earth could a 27 year old man never have gone camping in his life???
To be honest, I love camping but have put off going with him due to the fact that I knew how things would go with such a rooky. But, we went and we survived! Max watched the kids while I put up the tent and taught him all of the wonderful things there is needed to know about the great out doors. I think by the end he was confided enough to give it another shot, and next time maybe I'll watch the kids while he sets up camp!
Here are the boys (and the dog) in the loaded down mini van, that we hijacked for the trip!
Here is my "City boy" who planned the whole trip, and packed for all of us!
Colby slept for most of the long trip to the camp ground

I have started a new work blog, so it seems only fitting that I also update this bad boy once in a while. I can't possibly catch up on all of the happenings of the last 10 months since giving birth, so I'm just going to hop back in the stale and hope for the best!
I can't believe that Conner is starting school soon...where did the last 3 1/2 years go?? On top of that, I have begun planning Colby's first birthday party! CRAZY....
I'm sad that my boys are growing so fast, and at times I think of having another little one...But I'm kind-of ready for max and I to move on with our little family. I'm ready to be over the baby stages, where you have to pack copious amounts of things in the car just to go to the store. I'm ready to go to Disneyland, camping, on a boat, and not have to worry about the little ones. So, Them growing is a little bitter sweet.
Work is going very well and busy. I'm so grateful that I have been given this opportunity to work while being a stay at home mom!!
Colby has changed a lot over the last 10 months...
Conner is no longer a baby, Such a big boy!!
And Max and I are still in love!!

My belly has started to make strange "clicking" or "popping" sounds when the baby moves. I think it's a bomb about to go off. I looked this weird occurrence up on line and although there are a hand-full of women who have experienced this, there is no medical explanation nor does any one know what the noise is...
I'm going with Colby counting down the seconds until he gets to meet his kick ass mom, no medical explanation needed!!

Since my last post I have recieved an e-mail saying "sorry you're not dilating". Just so we are clear, I have dialated to a two. I guess I said that I was not dilated yet because I was soooo wishing for a three and I don't realy consider a two very much concidering I have to get to a ten before I get to hold my little one. You are considered in "Labor" at a four and are free to get an epidural at this time...I would love to be at a four. So, ok, I'm at a two. For those of you who have never been through child birth here is a diagram of what a the numbers look like and mean...
Looks like fun right????!!!
Also, just a thought, why in the hell don't they hand out disabled parking passed to pregnant women? Trying to walk the last trimester is hard enough but try doing it when the only parking spot is miles away from the store and you have your two year old draging behind you pointing out every "amazing" new thing he spots on the ground. So, you decide that you are never going to make it into the store at this rate, you have no choice but to pick this 30lb child up and place him on top of the already huge mass growing out oh your mid section and off you go into the store. And once inside you realize that having two children sitting on top of your blader has made you pee your pants and so now all you can do is turn around and head back home. EASY SOLUTION>>>give me a disabled parking spot. I mean I pee my pants in public doesn't that prove anything????
I know that it's my turn to have a baby, due to the fact that both girls who found out they were prego just before I did have given birth to healthy little bundles of spit-up and gas!! So, I'm next in line...Yay me!!!
I'm getting a little nervous about giving birth again. Giving birth to Conner was a cake walk, only felt two contractions, pushed a few times, and there he was. Recovery on the other hand was a whole other story....I ripped front and back and could not use the restroom like a normal person for weeks...and sex to this day is just not the same. I know that each birthing experience is different, and that is was scares me. I fear that this one is going to be the opposite of what I experienced with Conner. Long hard labor from HELL and a easy recovery....not sure at the moment which is better.
I do know that I can't wait to hold this little guy in my arms, see what he looks like, smell that sweet baby freshness again and enjoy every minute of "infant" that I possible can, since this is our last child. I know that this being our "last" is the smart thing to do, but I have to admit I'm a little sad about that. However, I have many, many friends and family members who have yet to start their own families so I know that there will still be little ones around that I can get enjoyment out of without the economic strain.

I can't believe that 20 weeks have past so fast. I had an ultra sound on Monday and I still have a little boy growing in there, and they said that he is very large for the age...which means that I'm on track to have a 12 lb pumpkin baby on Halloween!!
I'm glad baby Colby.. (Oh, yeah that's the name we've picked out) is growing big, strong, and healthy in there but seriously?? 12 lb is just a little too much for my body to handle. So, I guess they will do another ultrasound at 32 weeks and see how the little guy is doing in there to see if he can come out and play early!! Soooooo ok with this since I was really wanting a September baby!
Any who, moving is going...boxes every where, Conner is freaking out about it because his would is turned upside down. And the bridal shower is day after tomorrow, it is coming together great and I think the bride to be will love it!! Will post pics when I get a minute!

I know that Conner can't possibly understand that I'm pregnant, or that he has the big responsibility of being a big bro soon. But, I swear on some level that kid understands. When Max asks him "where's the baby?" Conner comes running up to me, lifts up my shirt and points to my belly. Also, if you ask him to give the baby kisses he plants a big wet one on my tummy, so stinking' cute! Any time we are out and about where there is a baby Conner looks at it with such interest and asks "what's that" then tries giving each one a kiss on the forehead. Yep, he is going to be the best big brother since my brothers!!

We are dieing to have friends over to play with us!! So, if you are up for the challenge hit me up!!

I have not scrapbooked in a month. No, that is not the BIG confession, it is my confession that in turn made me unable to scrap.
In order to explain I must give all of the facts here. It all started back in ninth grade at North Valley High School in the senior locker bay...I had my first "chew". You know, "chew", the stuff hicks put in their lip then periodically spit thick black crap out of their mouth. At my school many people chewed (or dipped) even the cheerleaders. My dippn' habit started out just for the buzz, but then the buzz was gone but I still did it for some reason. In college I dipped at least two times a day for about four hours each time. I never needed the chew, like a smoker need a cigarette every hour. Nope, my chewing habit was strictly for specific occasions. I found that chew helped me concentrate on studying, helped me focus when playing super Nintendo, kept me awake on long car tips home to Grants Pass, and also helped me relax when I painted my nails.
Well after college my chewing habit was pretty much gone since I no longer needed to study. I would have one maybe once a month. But, about six months before I became pregnant with Conner I got really into scrapbooking. I had to have my drug of choice while doing my craft of choice. Obviously, though, once I found out that I was pregnant with Conner I stopped chewing, which also made my scrapbooking stop.
After Conner was born I did not start the habit back up for a LONG time, I mean seriously, what mom chews???? But then about nine months ago I started scrapbooking again, and you guessed it I had to have the chew to help me focus. Now that I am again with child I had to stop both of addictions.
I really want to get caught up on my books before this baby is born. So, I looked to the wonderful world of baseball for inspiration....I got my self a bag of sunflower seeds, some new scrapn' supplies and I'm hoping it will work!!!
I truly hope that there will never be another "dip" in my mouth, and I can have amazing scrapbooks!!!!

Take today for instance, I discovered that he has no problem wearing pink. I happened upon this little find by accident, and he was quick to remove it from his body, but non the less I saw it. Apparently Max had ran out of clean socks, so he went rummaging through my sock drawer for a pair that would work for him. Well, he found a pair alright, a pink pair. After I discovered the said socks on my mans feet I began laughing uncontrollably and asked "why that pair"? I have a plethora of all white socks that would have worked also. He did not respond, only ripped the socks off and yelled "shut up" and burrowed himself into the nearest hiding spot.
The other great, yet very strange, thing that I learned today was that if you tickle his left hip bone it makes his neck itch. I'm not sure what that means but it was funny to watch!!
I'm sure that we all have hidden little things that only come out for those very special people in our lives. I'm so happy, and blessed to have such a special guy in my life who always keeps things new and well, different!!

To day is Maxies birthday, and surprise we're not doing anything for it. He is sleeping and will leave for work at 9pm. He did celebrate his birthday this last weekend with his boy's, so don't feel too bad for him!
Um, yeah, I think that catches you up to date!!

He walked away with a good amount of eggs...He got some side-walk-chalk-paint in his basket, and painted grandmas side walk for her!He was very happy with the finished product...We picked grandma some flowers and Conner loved the smell of them...And Mommy even got a kiss!!!!!
