Holy Cow!

Holy Cow! Where did the summer go?!?!?!

Walking through the grocery store the other day looking at the Christmas candles on display it hit me.  We will have another child by the time I put up the tree.  What the hell?!?!?!  Where did the whole 9-10 months go?

I had my first biophysical profile appointment today, lucky for me and baby I just turned 35 which means that once a week we go in and have an ultrasound to measure movement, size and fluid.  Then we sit hooked up to a machine for 20 minutes looking for contractions and monitoring the baby's heartbeat.  Well, apparently there is a score that these tests then give the doctor.  We got an 8 out of 8 this morning so we just go back next Wednesday as usual.  6 of 8 and we would have to come back in two days. 4 of 8 we go immediately to the hospital for 24 hours of monitoring and 2 of 8 we deliver today.  Whoa!  Things could have been much more exciting this morning. As we stand now he is about 20 inches long and weighing in at 5 pounds 11 ounces.  At least he is pretty much out of the skeletor phase, I would be forever grateful for the NICU if we ever needed it but it sure would be scary.  When the doctor first mentioned these appointments I tried fighting them but the further along we get and the more panic sets in that I will go into labor with the girls at home by myself I decided to give in and just hope that they will tell me a little bit about how far out the due date is.

They did manage to snap a picture of the little guy's face this morning just so we could see.  I sure think he looks more DiFabio than Wells but we'll see.

Here's little Austin's face.

And Tyler's to compare.

A picture of just how much help I have on a daily basis to get my work done.  And my poor empty plant pots.  Apparently this new house does not have the same kind of sunlight because everything has died, I need to replace them with shade versions.

For the first time ever I am attempting to refinish some furniture.  This is the crib we used for Austin and Tyler that is made of nice wood that ol' Tyler AKA Bucky the Beaver chewed on.  So I decided to sand it and stain it.

Here it is after the final coat of stain on the first piece, I will take another picture when everything is done and put back together.
