A little run down on me and my growing self..

I believe it was 2 posts back i mentioned that we have another lil munchkin in utero. 

This pregnancy is flying by and dragging by at the same time. 
If you know what i mean. :) 

I guess with age and more children to run after it doesn't get any easier to grow lil ones. 

But we are managing and i just have to remember that when pregnant i have half of the energy..

So that means that -
Our house gets half cleaned
My children might only get half bathed and dressed
The meals i cook will be half delightful
And hubby, well, he gets half of my attention as well. 

And this sweet, tiny always moving munchkin gladly, I'm sure, takes all the rest(of my energy) so it can grow good and strong. :)

How far along am i?
24 weeks. That sounds like a good number. Being over  half way is always nice. 
And just like my 3 pregnancies before- I'm growing like a weed. My whole body "does pregnant very well" and never ceases to amaze me with it's growing abilities. :) 
This pic was taken a couple weeks ago.

 What are we having? 
This time around we decided to find out. We have been surprised twice. And found out once..And we loved both ways. This time we felt like finding out so we did again. Ahhhh. What fun. I love ultra sounds. I don't care what people say.. babies are such lil miracles. And i feel super blessed to be given not 1, but 4!!

 We had a gender reveal with the children. 
They were so excited for this.
Brooklyn and Carter both wanted a little sister. 
Specially Brooklyn.
We were so excited for them that they got their wish. 
 And i have to say I'm really excited to dress a baby girl again. 
So much to do now...
So many headbands and fun girly things to buy. 
A boy probably would have been a cheaper option.
 So excited!! 
Jamison doesn't have a clue whats going on, of course.

And that's where we are at now folks. 
Taking one day at a time. 
Not letting one moment slip by where i don't thank God for this sweet lil one. 
Enjoying each pregnant moment-
 Whether it be the fun symptoms like the baby sweetly kicking me or the other not so pleasant pregnant symptoms that occur.

Celebrating Jamison turning two...

This Sunday our little boy turns 2.
Yes, that little boy who was just born, like yesterday was it?

Ahhh. Time moves too fast sometimes.
And i must say that was the fastest 2 years and the longest 2 years.
He was the third born and the one that kept me up at night ALOT.
At almost 2 he now lets me sleep most of the night. Getting up 1 or 2 times a night seems like nothing compared to how it used to be.
He would make up for it by being so cute in the day, of course.
And we couldn't/can't help but love that little man.
Even if i didn't have any gray hairs on my head till AFTER he was born.
I will always blame my gray hair on him. :) 

He is the first one of ours to be a daddy's boy. The other 2 always loved mommy over daddy.
But not Jamison.
Just today i asked him if he is Mommy's boy.
His reply is shaking his head no and saying "Daddy" :) And if its not daddy then it's "Papa".. :)

All of that being said--
Here are a few pics of his early birthday party we had the other night.
He does not have many words in his vocabulary yet.
But when talking about his upcoming birthday and cake. He would always say "B-ball!!"(baseball)
So we went with the baseball theme cupcakes.

 The joy of everyone singing happy birthday to you.
Deep down inside i think even adults want to smile like this and soak up a happy birthday sung to them .:)
 Blowing out the candles.
His favorite part of the whole party, i think.
We kept re-lighting and letting him blow them out.

 He loves to give fist bumps and high fives. After he blew out his candles he was busy doing that to his older cousins for a little. :)
 Enjoying the cupcakes...

 Discovering the candy on the counter and then finding a way to climb up and eat it.
 This cousin fractured his skull a few weeks ago. Now he lives life on the safe side and even wears a helmet while eating cupcakes. Smart guy. :)
 Present time.
Nothing like the pure innocence of a two yr old discovering his gifts.
 Love his excited expression here. :)

 Happy Birthday Jamison Parker.
Its so fun to be your Mommy and i'd do the sleepless nights all over again in a heart beat if i had to. :)
