Getting closer!

We are getting close now!  I am now 38 weeks pregnant!  Wow time has really flown by this pregnancy.  I guess that happens when you chase two other little ones around.  They have certainly kept me busy.  I am still feeling pretty good most days.  I have been having more frequent dizzy episodes so that has been very discouraging but my family is amazing!  Matt is so wonderful!  He comes whenever I need him and does a fantastic job with the kids while I am out of commission.  Then my mom is awesome too.  She tells me, "I am on stand-by for whatever you need." Of course, the kids love when "Bella" comes.  It is probably because she rolls in the floor and chases them through the house.

Anyway, we have decided to name our baby boy Titus.  Titus means "of the giants" and "pleasing".  Since we have known he was a boy our hearts have been stirred that he would carry a playful, strength.  I can totally see him being very firm in his beliefs and quick with a joke.  But we will see.  There seems to be so much excitement about him.  I really believe he will bring pleasure to our home.  I can't wait to see how Havah and Josiah interact with him.  Havah is all about babies right now and I am sure she will be a big help when he arrives.  Josiah notices babies but I don't think has any idea what is about to happen.  Although he loves to "kiss" Baby Titus (a.k.a. slobber on my belly button)  haha

Hopefully we will get to see his face soon.  My doctor says we could deliver any day now.  To be honest, I am hoping for sooner not later.  Not that I am really tired of being pregnant just ready to see our little man, to hold him and love on him, to be a family of 5.  Wow that sounds a bit overwhelming at the moment.

My brother-in-law and sister-in-law are incredible and kept the kids for us this weekend so Matt and I could have some time before the baby gets here.  I am so grateful for them.  They are so wonderful and give even when it doesn't make sense to everyone else.  They are good to us.    I don't think I realized how much I needed to have some time alone.  To say I nested this weekend would be an understatement.  I have always heard stories of women washing base boards and scrubbing old refrigerators but thought it was a myth.  I can testify, it is not a myth.  haha.  Matt had to work Saturday morning until about lunch so I had all morning to scrub, dust, wash, sweep, mop and organize.  It was.....AMAZING!  I washed probably every surface in the house including but not limited to light switches and door frames.  After Matt got home we took a quick break for lunch then headed off to buy some seeds for our garden.  I am so excited about our garden this year.  Matt and I then went out with some friends for a much needed date night.  It was so nice.  Again, I don't think I realized how much I needed some time.

So as we start a new week, only 12 days from D-Day, I start refreshed and excited to welcome baby Titus.  Hopefully next time I post it will be pictures of our newest addition.

I will leave you will some Easter pictures and the kids skating.  Who was a proud mommy?!  This girl right here!

Havah was so proud of herself.  

Big mess but lots of fun.  

Josiah did great the first time and didn't want anything to do with it the next time.
