I have been a very bad blogger lately...let's just say life has been moving pretty fast around here. So I thought I would drop in and post a little something something. I promise to be better...maybe...well I will try.. or just take what you can get, ha!
The one with a round belly...Me:
I'm 37 weeks preggers now and feel like a waddling balloon that is about to burst. I'm not going to lie having a toddler during this last stretch has been tough. Chad has been traveling quite a bit lately and that is not slowing down for another 2 weeks. He's super helpful when he is here, but when he is gone and I am the one man show...I am a pooped chicky at night. I'm very much ready to get this show on the road and meet little baby Fletch. I can already tell he is a man that knows what he wants. He directs me into the kitchen at 3am demanding Water and Hershey Bars. Who am I to deny the child what he wants? I have kept my weight gain somewhat under control this go around and I'm letting it fly a bit in the next couple of weeks. Weight Watchers, the YMCA and some new hot pink Asics are in my near future once we get baby Fletch acclimated to the pack. I'm excited about reclaiming my body as my own. Growing a human is tough...especially while chasing one around that poops in his pants.
The one that poops in his pants...Walker:
This kid is out of control with his words and new skills. Walker is kind of like a parrot and you can teach him good and bad things. I am having a hard time not teaching him funny things to say or do. Having a little mime can be dangerous! He is 18 months and some change. I draw the line at spelling out months, from here on out he is 1.5 years old...until he is two. Once the clothes drop the month sizing I have to also. Another giant reminder my baby is not a baby any longer. :( He is getting so freaking big and I just love the crap out of him. I lately have been noticing that he is quite a sensitive soul. He can get his feelings hurt pretty quickly by other kids, monkeys on iPad apps crying, or just a good Folger's commercial (kidding)...but he is very in tune with his emotions. I guess that book on emotions is working! We are not really in tantrum land yet, but the kid can let you know how he feels really quick. We are weaning him off of demanding iPad at this current time. Love of technology, emotions, smart...really, I don't know where he gets any of this! ;)
He's really a cool kid and we are having fun watching his little personality blossom. We keep talking about him being a big brother, but I think he just thinks we are giving him another room with a different theme. We shall see, but I think he will be a gentle little guy with baby Fletch. Stay tuned!
The Bread Winner...Chad:
Chad is kicking ass and taking names at work. I gotta brag on him a little bit because I think he is doing such an awesome job. The kid got a raise for all his efforts and that is making life a bit easier around here now I am a retired lady that is ordering hot pink Asics for operation "Get Hot" this Spring. Chad just got back from Vegas where he worked the NADA (National Automobile Dealer Association) convention for his company. He brought back more money than he left with, won his Super Bowl bets and managed not do anything foolish. I'm proud. Ha! This joker also got to go to the National Championship game in New Orleans. I'm glad he got to go...he works hard and loves some Alabama football...and he didn't do anything foolish. So Chad has been living it up and poor little ol' me is just supplementing the lack of travel with hot pink shoes. Can you tell I am excited about these shoes???
Anywhoo...that is what is going on with us. Hope everyone is enjoying 2012. We are going to continue to keep it real around here and I'll report more as it happens.
