Well, I had a ultra sound today and we found out some exciting news!! We found out that we are one week farther along than we originally thought!! So, they changed my due day to October 31. I guess I have a pumpkin growing inside me!! The doctor also said that there was a little penis growing in there!!

So weird to think, I have a penis growing inside me!hahaha!! Here are some pictures of the little pumpkin!!

I THINK I may have felt a kick in there!!!! It could have just been gas but I pretty sure it was my little bean sprout saying "hi mom, I'm in here"!!! I have been waiting and waiting to feel a little bump-bump for what feels like forever. Feeling Conner "kick about" was my favorite part of pregnancy with him, and I can't wait to feel more little reminders that this on is in there also!

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!!

So, the sunflower seeds did not help my scrapn' abilities. I just sat there for 45 minutes starring at my supplies and chewed on the seeds. I finally became frustrated and not to mention dehydrated, and gave up on the whole thing. I may never scrapbook again.

I have however found my new favorite thing to do with my free time. For Max's birthday he got "Rock Band" for his 360, and oh Lord is it not the most fun I've ever had. Max and I stayed up until the wee hours of the morning rocking out together!!

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

OK, I have a confession to make. For those of you who know me really really well this will not be much of a surprise, but for those of you who think you know me will find out that you may not know me as well as you thought...

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!!!!

I love that after knowing my husband for five years I can still learn new things about him.

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!!

This baby, or my belly is growing at record speed. At nine weeks it is only the size of a grape, yet it looks like I'm smuggling a cantaloupe.

OK, so I know that I have been a bad blogger lately, and for that I'm sorry. But I think that I or you would be even more sorry If I would have blogged these last couple of days. The blogs would have been so boring that you would have wanted to shoot your self for reading them. Seriously, I want to shoot myself do to the uneventfulness (is that a word??) around here!

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!!
