My house it ripped! I've totally taken "nesting" to the extreme. My only problem is that after putting together my humongous 6x6 toy box/shelf by myself...I'm a tad tapped out. And all the things that I was so excited to get started and finish...ummm, not so excited right now. Oh, well. Such is life, right? I guess I'll go finish and try to muster up the courage to take some post-production pictures...I for sure didn't' take any pre!
and p.s.....Graham is totally out of the picture for names (sniff, sniff) Joe's having more and more issues with it...and now I have NO IDEA what this kid's going to be called!!! Not my favorite style. I've always known my babies names pre-birth and I'm afraid I'm not one of those people that can look at a newborn and think "Oh, he looks like a _____." (insert name)

Miss Hannigan's little ophan to her and the police man..."kissy, kissy ,kissy..." They think it's the funniest thing.
So these are a little bright and straight from my camera....until my photoshop comes!!!
the end. (my kids are turning into literal posers...they love when the camera comes out, at least for a little bit.)
PS. and totally off the subject....I love the hair powder Sara got me for my birthday!!! It's call PSSSSSST and you can get it at Walgreens for super cheap and I like it way better than my Bumble and Bumble super expensive hair powder! Thanks Sara!

So, we house hunt. (Anything to lighten this horrible crushing feeling of cluttered house and garage!!!) We look and find and put money down and anticipate and then we just come home to this tiny cluttered house--back out of buying a house and pat ourselves on the back for not making the "terrible" decision we could have just made. I'm relieved of my burden.
Then I wake up the next day and it's back. There's no lurking...no teasing pressure...it just comes back full on! (deep slow breath in through the nose, exhale through the mouth) And it doesn't leave. Ikea is my Advil of choice. Although it is temporary...keeping a list of items to organize my dwelling keeps the edge off...but I don't know how much longer I can take this!
Maybe on March 28th (that's the scheduled day with the Doctor) after baby ______ (Graham--but don't let Joe know I'm calling him that) comes out and my hormones plummet to their lowest levels...I will be cured. Because I'm sure going to still be here in this same place when that happens. We're such wimps!

Truman has been so excited about his CTR ring that he got on Sunday. He's been begging me to take pictures of it and only removes it to take a bath...hence the green outline forming on his finger (where is my clear nail polish when I actually need it?)
Why such a cheery face??? I'm not to point fingers BUT ever since Sunday...it's been rough going. It couldn't possibly be that we let him stay up WAY WAY WAY too late and now that preschools back in session, it's the adjustment. Or the fact that we are all healthy which means he can't watch movies all day and play Leapster all day too. Hummm, I wonder....
He is so cute with his ring though. I can't believe that he's getting so big...I always tell him that one day he's going to be lots taller than me, but no matter how big he is...I still get to hold him and snuggle him because he'll always be my very first baby...

On a more post-holiday positive note....
We had a great Christmas at home and it was so fun watching my kids get so excited over every little thing they got! It was so fun. I'd have to say that Kate's doll house and bike were my personal favs...they were great finds!!! I will go on no more...
okay, those pictures are way too big, took way too long to upload, and I'm way too TIRED!
But at least this is getting documented, right?
