Bellies, Beds, & Birthdays

33 Weeks already! Brighton has found a new hiding spot from me :) This baby will be here anytime within a month!!

Brighton turned 2 yesterday! He was so excited about his "Happy Day" He wore his birthday crown and sticker all during Daycare and brought blue and red cookies to share.

When he woke up we brought up his new bed into his new room to Celebrate.

Here is Brighton getting ready to take his first nap into his new bed. He came out twice telling me that he "wake up". After the second time I told him he had to stay there and not come out anymore. He stayed in his room yelling, "Mommy, COME HERE NOW!" over and over. After awhile he started reading a book and playing around a bit, all was quiet after about 45 minutes.

I snuck in to check on him and found the little one snoozing away. What a good boy!
Even after a successful nap I was still very nervous for bed time. Chris and I read to him and tucked him in. Chris stayed a little longer in the room. Brighton told him "Stay Here" but Chris explained that he needed to leave. He left the room and shut the door. We put a gate up on the top of the stairs in case he got up in the night and left our room open. I didn't sleep very well listening and waiting. I even left for work and he was still not up. Chris texted me and told me that when Brighton woke up he was whining from his room wanted to watch AstroBoy but he didn't get out of bed until Chris walked into the room. For his nap today he didn't get up once and went right down. I really had different expectations for Brighton's transition into his big boy bed, but so far so good! I'm sure we will have the long nights when he crawls out to see us but we are very excited about his progress so far.

Brighton and Madison have the same Birthday. She turned 7 yesterday. For their birthdays we went to a pizza buffet/arcade.

All the Birds and our Pizza. Stephen was taking the picture.

I am so proud of my little boy. He has learned so much in two years and is the most wonderful kid ever. I just love him more and more everyday!

How big is this kid?

Really? Am I really this large all ready? I am about 31 1/2 weeks; still quite a few to go!! Brighton came over 2 weeks early and was already 7.7 lbs. I guess that is what I get for marrying a man who is 6' 3". I am feeling good though. The rest of my body, besides the belly, hasn't bloated as much as last time so that is nice. We are all getting very excited for our new baby!

Here are my two handsome men. I love them and am one lucky lady!

Slow Down!!

I have been busy for too long and am ready for a break; so is my body and my messy house! Here is what I have been up too:

Here are my four new digital scrapbooks! I am very proud of them. I use memory mixer to scrapbook my pages then wait for to have their wonderful flat rate deal; 1 price up to 100 pages which all my books come very close too! I got a lot of scrapbooking done this summer when I was off work and Brighton took 4 hour naps. I was very lucky to have that time to finish some projects that I was behind on. Then winkflash had their deal so I had to get everything else done. It was a busy two weeks of me on the computer. Brighton is a little high maintenance so I could only do it while he was asleep which means no afternoon nap and late nights for prego me. But here they are and I am all caught up!! I splurged a little and got the custom covers this time. I like them so much better it was worth the few extra dollars.
*Books: Engangement, wedding, and the rest of 2008
*Our Family book of 2010
*Dating book has some of our first dating years (2004-2005) Then Mid 07 to where our Wedding books picks up
*And Brighton's 2010 book

Here are all my digital scrapbooks. I love real scrapbooking and have many of those too but it is no longer doable for me. These are in order by date.
*06-07 summer: mostly me a little Chris, the pictures that I had
*Our dating book
*The book Chris made me to propose
*2009-January through June
*2009-July through December (Brighton was so cute we couldn't help taking a million pictures
*2010 Family
*2010 Brighton
*I actually have another little one that is Brighton's baby book, which he loves to look at but it is at the neighbor's right now.

As soon as I got my scrapbooks finished and turned in I started making these. I love them! These ones are for Brighton and baby Tad (still has no name so we call him that for now) I wanted a way to separate their diapers in the diaper bag. I love them and have started a few for some prego friends.

After that we had Kherrington stay with us for a few days: So FUN! but right after Brighton got sick. VERY SICK! The worst I had ever seen. While he was sick we went to Vegas. He started to get a little better there when I caught the cold. Now I am getting a little better and Chris has caught it. Come on! My parents were in town last weekend to help Heather and Jordan pack and take Heidi to a dance Camp. They might come back this weekend to help finish packing and say good bye :( Also, Chris' family is coming for little Payten's blessing. So fun, hopefully we will be better so we can play. After this weekend it is cleaning house and sleeping for me!
