When Mommy?

Carson has been asking a huge number of questions regarding the baby. However the biggest question is "when".
When is the baby coming to stay with me?
When will your belly pop so the baby can come out?
When are you going to the hospital for the baby?
In a few months the tide will turn... Carson will be asking when is the baby leaving my house. LOL

Life goes on....

Life has been so busy lately. We have been really busy planning our next mission trip to Guatemala which is scheduled for August 2011. Essie (my mom) is going to watch Carson and the baby while we are in Guatemala. I am truly looking forward to traveling back to Guatemala. I really should be planning for the baby to come instead of Guatemala however I start to get really nervous every time I think about buying items for the baby.

As for Carson he received his first karate badge last Saturday (of course I forgot the camara). He loves karate however we do not like all the karate chopping at home. But, he is really learning to follow directions and pay attention during class even if there are other kids messing around.
The other day in the car I asked Carson if he would help me with the baby. He replied like what…
The conversation:
Me: Help feed the baby?
Carson: No not that green stuff (pea’s in the jar)
Me: Help give the baby a bath?
Carson: The baby gets baths in your belly
Me: Help change the baby?
Carson: No way- yuck
Me: Read to the baby?
Carson: Yea, I am good at that
Me: Play with the baby?
Carson: Yea, like batman, the wii, lego’s. That will be fine.

Just go with it

Yes, I am still here. I was not on the computer much last week as I was having computer issues. Tomorrow I am 24 weeks pregnant. I can not believe how fast the pregnancy is going... I am due the first week of June. It will be here before I know it. Can you say NERVOUS?! As I have said before I really have never held or cared for a newborn baby. I do not know the first thing about a newborn. Carson was eight months old when he came home and I was on the phone with Essie (my Mom) or my sister every hour or at my parents home trying to get a handle at being a parent. PHEW!!!
My husband (Jonathan) is an excellent support system. If he could give birth for me he would. Matter of fact he will probably try to breast feed. (lol) Do not tell him I said that-
Last week Carson told me I was going to have a boy or a girl... Really?! Carson loves to rub my belly. He talks to the baby all the time and has some very interesting questions about being pregnant.
Friday night Jonathan and I went to see Just go with It with two of my all time favorite actors- Jennifer Aniston and Nicole Kidman. The movie was cute!

How many?

Today my sweet little boy got 4 (yes 4) shots plus the flu mist. UGH!
Flu Mist
Carson looked at the physician with his big brown eyes and said, "please no more".
