This is what happens…..

when you say “No” to a two year-old.


Oh, the drama! Is it bedtime yet?

That darn ticker!!!


I don’t know about you, but I keep staring at that stupid ticker on this page and wonder why it is moving sooooo slowly. The Dr. said I wouldn’t make it to August, which means that I have 38 days left at most, but I can’t figure out how to change that darn ticker up there. It says that I have 45 days left, and that is not okay. That is 7 days that I will not be able to bear, y’all. Fix it Josh.

Anyway, that’s what’s pretty much consuming my world right now. (That and the fact that it’s time to start Christmas design planning at work.)

So here’s what my nearly 34 week baby bump looks like, measuring right at 34 weeks.


If that’s not a Willy Wonka Christmas candy experiment gone wrong, I don’t know what is .

Happy Monday.

I get one more of these

I’m lucky.  Six weeks and counting.


Placenta Brain ** Update**

I have reached the “scary pregnant” phase of pregnancy. It is no longer a condition. It defines me, and it has taken over my life. I have developed “placenta brain.” It is making me do stupid things. For example:

1. I lose countless things everyday. My keys have been the greatest loss, but my second pair of sunglasses and cell phone (for the moment) are rising on the charts.

2. I turn on the wrong burner on the stovetop almost every time I cook. A burning smell usually accompanies this mistake.

3. I miscalculate the size of my stomach. I’ve gotten stuck between chairs, fallen flat on my back doing laundry and sideswiped an unsuspecting stranger in the most awkward example of “spooning” imaginable.

4. Suduko is completely blowing my mind, even the easy puzzles.

5. There are more, but I can’t remember right now.

**6.** Instead of ordering production team dinner for tonight, June 15. I ordered dinner for an empty building on Friday August 15. Didn’t catch the mix-up until the food didn’t show up. Sigh.
The Doc said that I have every reason to believe that this will be a July baby. I can hold her to that right?

At Mimi’s House

The girls are having a great time hanging out at Mimi’s house between all of the wedding festivities. Now we’ve just got to figure out how to get both of them to take long naps so they (and we) can enjoy the actual wedding tonight.






We know that you all have opinion on this one.

We’re stumped. Josh and I have our favorites, but our favorites are not the same. (Ha!)

We haven’t settled on a boy or a girl name, and I just can’t do another baby name search on Google.

So here’s your chance to weigh in on the name of Baby # 3.

Let’s hear ’em.

Potty Princess

Potty training makes me crazy. It makes me even crazier that she wants to wear this dress while doing it and prefers to be called “Giselle” instead of Charlotte (from the movie Enchanted).

But look how cute she is:


How can I get mad at that sweet little thing?

And, for the record, we are kicking some serious potty training behind today.

I hope I didn’t just jinx it.

Rockstar poses

My children have a band. It’s called “Pink Zebra”. Here are a few shots from the last performance.

Olivia has perfect form. Notice the slightly bent knee and hair in the face.


Here Charlotte rocks a pair of blue goggles and a serious attitude.


Charlotte Quotes…

Me: Charlotte you’re crazy! You can’t wear a bathing suit to bed.

Charlotte: No daddy I’m not crazy. I’m a ballerina.


One morning with my girls……

This is what happens when my girls are given free reign of the house for one morning.



Guess I know what I’m doing during naptime.
