I think it just hit me that I have to go back to work tomorrow! I shed a tear...but I'm prego, so I shed a lot of those! I just looked at Noah and asked him "Whose gonna drive me crazy all day?" He laughed at me...which he should...I work with 600 kids, there's always someone to drive me crazy, but no one can do it like my little man!

Who's gonna be my beach bum and tell me 50 times that it's "Time to go to Winda's house, to go swimming"
Who's gonna go to weddings with me and give the entire play by play of the ceremony out loud, during the ceremony? "Mommy they get married, Mommy he take picture, Mommy he has camera, Mommy pretty girl" Noah you have to be quiet "Mommy be quiet" ...and exit wedding!
Who's going to drag me to the potty twenty times, especially in Target? Sorry no picture...but he's doing so good, barely any wet diapers! Or Bob's as he calls them, I don't know why, but we go with it!
Our July was filled with all the sunshine we could get. We did go to Winda's (Lynda's) and swim a lot, which got Noah ready for the beach. We were so blessed to spend two entire weeks in Emerald Isle, NC this summer. I wish we could have all been there for the entire two weeks, but I'm so thankful for the time I did have with my family.

That's our little house in the middle...the one you can barely see :)

But when you have this to look at everyday...who cares?!?!

I was spoiled rotten by my husband, I think I only carried my own chair once to the beach...he took such good care of me and Noah! This would be a sunrise they got to see, thanks to Noah and his new found love of being awake at 5 in the morning.

Just a few others from our wonderful two weeks.
Sorry no time for anymore....someone whom I love dearly is driving me crazy :)

When did August get here?

As my mother so lovingly reminded me..."Umm you have a lot of updating to do" You'd think for someone who has the summer off, I'd be a whole lot better at updating my blog...but no...being off of work for me, means not doing anything!

Our summer started off with a big surprise...actually before we even started summer!

Yup that's right, on June 4th we found out that Baby Blaine #2 is on the way! A lot of people asked if this was planned, and I kinda have to giggle, it was someone's plan! I guess God decided it was time, which through Planner Polly me into a mini panic...which I got over in the next two minutes! How exciting, we've been blessed with a whole new life!

I've also been blessed with my friend gestational diabetes again, and I'm an overachiever so it had already shown up at just 11 weeks! I gotta say I'm kicking it's butt! It's NOT easy to count carbs while you're prego, but totally worth it! The other plus side is I get to see my baby more often!

Richard says it doesn't look like a girl's face...honestly it's a little scary looking to me, we never saw Noah before 22 weeks, so I guess the smaller they are, the more alien they look!She's looking right at us! That's right I said she...which I'm not supposed to do, but oh well! I asked the ultrasound tech if she could tell the sex. She laughed and said it was a little early (14 weeks) but if I promised not to get mad if she was wrong she'd tell me what she thought. She thought it looked like a girl (no boy parts in sight)...but told me not to go buy paint yet! I was super excited because I've guessed it was a boy since the beginning. I am secretly planning a girls room...but I'll be just as happy if it's a boy (but girl clothes are so much cuter!)

With all this chaos going favorite little man turned two! He was so excited to make a birthday cake for school! He even helped decorate it.
We decided to keep this baby news a secret until Noah's birthday party...not was three weeks of silence...which is very hard for me, I have a big mouth! I thought this t-shirt would be the perfect way to tell everyone...little did I know our families don't read! The only one who read his shirt and got it was my little sister! Oh well, it was still really cute!
We enjoyed a day of lots of sun, heat, family and friends, we even had some unexpected New York family come, which was really exciting! I had my personal photographer document the day (Thanks Cay Cay). How does any mom take pictures and be a mom at the same time?

My dad aka. Grandaddy, was a big help that day, along with my great hubby, they put up so many pop-ups, grilled and helped clean up. I don't know how to describe what Noah does for my Dad, but it's something special. Noah is such a special kid, of course I say that because he's mine, but this kid has a purpose in life, and it's not to drive his momma crazy, which he's very good at, but God has big things planned for this kid, I know it!

We opened tons of presents and ate my froggie cupcakes, which I am very proud of. I found my inner Martha or Rachel or someone who can make cute and creative foods!

`I think that may cover all of June...or most of it! Hopefully in my last two days of freedom before I go back to work, I can cover the rest!
