Mother's Day and Baseball

What a wonderful first Mother's day (yes I know I am about a month late)
The three of us went to the Padre's vs Astro's game in Houston. It was so fun having my little man there. Thankfully the Padre's won or I would have been a cranky Momma...

Sunday morning Derrin made egg and dairy free pancakes with bacon. Oh my goodness they were fantastic. I ate to much for sure, but it was well worth it.

We finished off the day with Derrin making his famous ribs. These are the best ribs I have ever eaten. Kinda of scarey how almost my whole weekend was centered around food.
I can't wait to take Jacob to more games. Maybe this will be our thing since his dad could careless about baseball. :0)

The Wonders of a dog door

So Sautrday morning was spent watching Jacob play in the dog door. He is coming very close to going all the way through.

He spends most of his mornings watching the dogs go in and out of the door and I think he thinks it's a game.

One of these mornings he's going to end up outside on the patio...

Welcom to Jacob's Journey

There is so much to share about this little guy, I just don't know where to start. He is truely a happy baby. He sleeps great, eats great, and loves to be held. We are working on him being more independent. The walker has really helped with that. He can chase Derrin and me and the dogs around the house. He thinks the dogs are amazing. They love him him purely for the food he drops. Starting out his 8th month Jacob seems more interested in standing/trying to walk than he does crawling, even though he get's into the "crawl" position.
keep checking back... as soon as I capture a cute moment I will post.

Baby's room

I have to give credit where credit is due. The nursery is courtesy of Grandma and Grandpa Woods (my parent's). Aunt Sandra purchased the chandelier over the crib and Derrin and Doug tirelessly installed the light. Over Christmas Doug and Lani worked for three days straight, painting walls, trim, installing the chair rail, new light fixtures, and hanging all the shelves. We have gone with a simple yellow and green Pooh Bear theme. This will tie in great with the fact that we are not finding out the sex. No Pink or Blue here :0)

Doug and Lani came out again at the end of February and Lani and I purchased the valances and the pooh bear painting for the room.

Now it's on to registering...

Month 5 here we come...

So I'm rounding the corner on month 5. And I finally get to say I have a belly. It's just enough for me to start sharing. I go today to hear the heart beat again. At our last check up the HB was 154. So for all of you out there who think you can tell boy or girl, this little one is right in the middle. We are still holding strong on not finding out the sex. Sorry Amy :0)

Here' s my belly so far.
Todays check up has the hb @ 147, and in the same spot that has been jabbing me all morning.

2nd Trimester - Wooo Hooo

Yeah I'm finally there, 14 weeks and I feel amazing. Now don't get me wrong I still get a bit tired, but then again, I am working 10 hour days. I was reading the other night about what is happening now and how the baby is developing. It's all pretty amazing, what true a miracle this is. The best part about all of this is my drive. If I want to do something I do it. I don't have to muster up the energy to do something. As a matter of fact I have cleaned my house, done the laundry, washed the dogs, made dinner (almost every night of the week), hosted a Super Bowl party and took care of Derrin. And that was just one weekend. And then there is the belly. Some day soon I will post a picture of my belly. I am still getting used to it so that will have to wait. So these next 13 weeks I get to look forward to my belly growing, great energy, feeling the baby move and sharing that with Derrin and preparing for the 3rd trimester which lands me right into summer.

Preparation for Baby... Or is it

My wonderful, loving husband had knee surgery on the 23rd, and for the most part it's been rather uneventful. However, I have been given the chance to do it all. Work, cook, clean, take care of the dogs, and take care of him. He is actually a good patient, a bit needy though. But as I clime into bed I lay there wondering if this is what it's going to be like with a little one around. I'm sure it will be different (a bit) but I'm not sure how much. I am blessed that Derrin normally takes care of the dogs. But with Derrin non weight bearing for 6 weeks, my mornings and nights have really changed. Instead of my nice 30 mins in the am to get up, get ready, eat and get in the care. It now takes me and hour and a half. Are you kidding me!!! Getting me, the house and him ready in the morning takes for ever. I'm glad I have simplified my routine. Then I get home, get him more ice, clean up, make dinner, clean up again, change the laundry, put laundry away. And maybe get to sit for about an hour (not all at once though). However, last night, I was in no mood to cook or clean, so we went to dinner (that's a whole other story :0)
By the time we got home it was 615, 28 degrees (that's cold for TX) and sleeting. I couldn't help my self I got on the couch, with both the dogs, and fell asleep. It was a great nap. I needed it. But I'm guessing with a little one around, naps like that aren't easy to come by.
Oh how our lives are going to change. What a strange new world we are getting ready to enter into.
