Talking points

*Well we had Christmas this year in our new home!! That was exciting and we were suppose to have my grandparents and mom over but the snow kept them away. So we spent Christmas with our little family and had so much fun! I really enjoyed not having to travel, I know that sounds awful but it was so relaxing :) Santa brought the boys a Lego table and it has been VERY popular. I am ordering stockings but wanted to wait after Christmas so I could get a good deal ( I know how cheap is that but the baskets worked and the boys don't know any better)

* Here is a pic of me at 30 weeks and yes I am HUGE, I know! I had one lady that was a nurse tell me she was watching me just in case I went into labor. I smiled and said oh I am not due until March!!!! Come on give me a break I am barely 5 foot 1!! :) This belly has no where to go except OUT !

Lila is doing so good. We went last Tues. and she had a huge growth spurt and weighed 3 lbs. 5 ounces! Almost a pound in 2 weeks! This is huge for her. I am taking it easy and am bored but the bed rest is working b/c I now only have partial placenta previa.

*I have been working on my projects from the challenge I posted! My first project was cross stitching a Christmas tree and my second project is an album that says Baby and I am going to scrapbook the words. Here is the post regarding the challenge if you are wanting to be in the running for a $50 gift certificate to Amazon! Good luck!

Oh what fun it is with dad...

on a cold winter night, hey!

I really enjoy watching the "father & son" time that my boys create together! This weekend was no exception.

The boys went out to the back patio and created the best snow fort! As daddy went to work on it the boys had snow ball fights. I watched and made hot chocolate for each one of them.

It was taking too long so the boys ventured in so daddy finished the fort and then he had to try it out. He was so proud of his fort :) The boys told him that the fort is awesome and they hope it never melts.

These times just melt my heart!

The challenge, are you ready!?

So bed rest is exactly what I thought! It makes the days really looong and sloooow. I am hoping not to go insane the next 2 1/2 months!! Grandma JJ will be taking the boys from Tuesdays through Fridays which will be good for me but I am going to miss the noise. It will be really quiet around the house. So I was thinking of something that could occupy my time and this challenge is what I came up with...

Here is the challenge:

1. You will send me a package containing EVERYTHING I will need to create a project. (Remember I can't run to the store) It can be anything you wish. *Note these projects will not be returned to you*

2. You can have as many entries as you wish.

3. The project has to be able to be completed within 2 days.

4. The deadline for the challenge is Feb. 1st. All projects have to be postmarked no later than January 31st. Please email me at court_carpenterathotmaildotcom with a link to your blog and I will email you back with my address.


On Feb. 1st I will post all projects that were sent to me and I will have a poll and we will all vote on the best project.

On Feb. 15th I will announce the winner! The winner will receive a $50 Gift Card to *The drawing could take place at a later time due to the arrival of Lila*

The dreaded word is Here...

Well bed rest it is for me! I have been informed by the Dr. that I am to do nothing except the minimal for my children. Luckily I have grandma JJ close that will take them a couple of days a week for me. Brian's jaw dropped to the floor when the Dr. said oh and no COOKING AND CLEANING! I can't go shopping, walking, and Brian busted me out for snow shoveling. So needless to say won't be doing that either. Thanks Bubba :)

We will see him every 2 weeks now and will have an amniocentesis on Feb. 2nd. If at that time her lungs are mature they will deliver!! If they aren't then we will continue amnio's until they are!!?? I said well can't you just give me the steroids and mature her lungs instead of needles and his reply was "Don't you have tattoos"? "Then I don't want to hear anything about needles." Okay then bring on the needles. I am going to do whatever it takes to get her here.

Lila is healthy and looks great! She is now 2 pounds 7 ounces! The Dr. saw her tinkle while we were looking at her and was able to show us that. That was a first for us! Oh and I was a little sad b/c I didn't get a sono pic either. We still have placenta previa. Which probably won't change so it will be a c-section for me.

As for the challenge I will wait until my internet at home is up and running. That should be sometime at the beginning of next week!
