It is time....

So my little boy is deciding to come after all. He is only 3 days late but that's ok, he is coming!
I woke up around 12:45 because Brady woke up due to a scary dream. Before I went to comfort him, I had to go to the bathroom, but when I got up from the bed, I was a wet. I didn't really know what it was from. I have never had my water break before so I didn't know if that was the cause. I comforted brady and again, I got wet and could feel fluid coming out everyonce in a while. I started reading up on the internet of signs of water breaking.... Some women said it felt like water gushing out and some said it was just trickles here and there. The trickling part was more of my experience. It also mentioned to lay down for 30 min and then get up and if more fluid comes out that is the amniotic fluid not just urine. When I got up not a lot of fluid came out, so I went back to sleep. Oh don't get me wrong, it took me a long time to sleep because I had so much on my mind.
I woke up around 8am; my pad was wet but not that bad. I went about my morning, my contractions were here and there but nothing constant. Around 11am I was starting to get a little worried because I had not felt my baby move since 2 this morning. Mind you, I slept for 6 more hrs so I didn't feel anything at the time. I started worrying. To be honest, I started thinking the worse. We brought the kids over to Jasons parents house. We thought it would be best to go over to the hospital, check the fluid to see if it is amniotic and make the sure the baby is ok. I figured it would be a quick check and go home and eat. Nope!
My water did break and the baby did have a bowl movement, so we have to get that watched and be prepared for when I deliver him. The nurse, Patty put the heart monitor on and wa la, our baby boy is still doing good. Because I am in labor I can't eat. Boo! Because my water broke, apparently you have to deliver within 24hrs of it breaking. So I am thinking we have until 12:45 tonight. We also have to deliver within that time to prevent infection and a c-section.
Around 2:45pm they started me on ptocin, I was dialated a 1-2 cm and 50% effaced. It is now 3:45 and I think the contractions are getting stronger. I do remember the pain, so I know right now I can handle this. We shall see what happens in the next few hrs.

Rice Krispy House

I have always wanted to do a gingerbread house with the kids, but they have always been to young until now! The gingerbread house seemed kind of hard to put together so I found this rice krispy house kit and thought this was perfect. The kit even came with a pan to make the house out of. We were going to decorate the house last night, but Jason didn't get home from church until 9pm. Ya, that was just a little to late for the kids. So, since we had to come into town tonight, Jason thought it was a good idea to make it with his parents.

Jason had to check up on the football game every once in a while!
I just love this picture! Both of them working so hard to make their house pretty!

The end result! Brady is all about putting things in a line. I love the gum drops lined up across the house! They did a great job, don't you think!

The catcher


This picture tells a lot about brady. He is our sports lover and is constantly playing some kind of sport at home with his dad, me or grandpa's. This picture was taken one Sunday evening playing baseball and he had to make sure that he had his catcher attire on. His gloves are pajamas still in the package and his helmit is a fire fighter hat! Oh the imagination! I sure do love this little boy!
He had told me one day that when he grows up he wants to play baseball, basketball, golf, soccer, tennis and be a cowboy and bull ride. Boy are we going to have our hands full when he grows up!

My Little Helpers

I sure do enjoy my little helpers. Sometimes they make it easy for me and other times, I have to come back and redo what they did. I am forever grateful for their eagerness to learn and help me every chance they can. Emma is delayed in her speech and so we are constantly talking to her so that one day she can pick up on the sounds. Thankfully her hearing aides have started helping her hear better and she is now up to about 6 words. :) Brady is such a great big brother. Emma will pull out the silverware from the dishwasher, hand it to him, and he will tell her what she has given him and then he puts it away. (Our speech therapist believes that Emma will learn more from him, then us)
Boy do I really not care to clean the toilets, but I sure do love that my daughter does! Emma is getting alot better about mimmicking (sp?) the things that we do. With my pregnant belly it does get hard sometimes to get the smaller things and Emma will be right there to clean up the rest! She is going to make a great mom one day! I had to take this picture because I actually didn't clean the toilets that day. Her favorite new toy is to get the toilet brush and clean the toilet!

Pretty in Pink


This is my pretty in pink little girl Emma! She is now 20 months old and such a doll! We enjoy her very much!

Bradyisms

About a month, I would write down some of the things that Brady would say that just crack us up. Here are a few:
*Brady-"I want to watch the deer movie. Mom, where is my gun?"
Mom-why?
Brady-"So I can shoot the deer!"

*Mom-"Brady I have had enough..."
Brady-"What are you talking about?"

*Brady-"Are the coyotes out right now?"
Mom-"No, it's still light out."
Brady-"The coyotes come out at night. "
Mom-"Ya, they come out to eat naughty boys like you."
Brady-"And mommy, daddy and Emma"

*Brady gives me a kiss and then says, "we're married"

*"Mommy is having a baby and Emma will when she is married."

*10-18-10-(Had another ultrasound)-Nahnie-"What's your baby brothers name?"
Brady-"Um.... Comet"
(Everything that is ready for the baby, Brady believes it is for baby comet.)

*Dad-"Brady, when is Santa coming?"
Brady-"Santa is coming to town!" (While singing the song)

*Dad-"Brady do you know when we celebrate Christmas?"
Brady-"On Thursday!" (I didn't even know he new some of the days of the week)

*Mom-"Brady, now that you went poop in the potty, we need to wipe your butt."
Brady-"Ok. Don't get your hands dirty. "

*(I am changing my nephews diaper who is 17 months old)
Brady-"Oh, Connor has a penis just like Brady does."
Mom-"Yes, all boys have a penis"
Brady-"Connor has a baby penis and I have a Big Huge Penis!"

*12-5-10-Brady-"Its not dark"
Daddy-"It is dark outside."
Brady-"No. It is dark brown"

*12-6-10-Brady-"What is that man doing?"
Nahnie-"He is shoveling dirt."
Brady-"Yah, that's right!"

*12-9-10-Brady-"Did Emma go poop?"
Mom-"Yes, Poop and Pee"
Brady-"Gross Emma! Bleh- You just made me puke!"

*12-20-10-Mom-"Are you going to sit on and talk to Santa tonight?"
Brady-"Yes"
Mom-"What will you ask Santa for Christmas?"
Brady-"Dinner!"
Mom-"What else?"
Brady-"Strawberries and Oranges!"
(I guess instead of buying gifts we should have just bought him food!)

I just love my little Brady. He cracks me up every day with the things that he says. I can't believe he is going to be 3 in March. My little boy is growing up so fast! He is a 2 1/2 year old who is like going on 10! I will have to post next time of the little smarty pants he is!

Whats the rush?

Writing in my journal has always been a passion of mine. Unfortunately, having two little ones running around and keeping me on my toes, it's hard to get back into it. Having this blog does make it nice for journaling purposes.
It is a bummer that I didn't write anything about this pregnancy. When we found out I was pregnant with Brady we got a journal right away and I wrote all about that pregnancy. With Emma, I did buy a journal and sad to say wrote maybe 3 entries. With baby #3, I just realized the other day that I had not bought a journal for him. Pathetic! I am now 39 weeks today and still no baby. What's the rush?? At last weeks dr appt, I was really thinking that with all of the braxton hicks contrations I have been having that I was dialated at least a cm. Nope! Yesterday at my appt, I was hoping again for some good news. Nope! I still have not dialated.Dr. Chang said this baby doesn't want to come out. He is pretty content where he is. I am happy I can keep him happy there, but this mom is getting VERY uncomfortable. I toss and turn all through the night and I roast! The thermostat is set on 70 degrees and it's so hot. Everyone else is cold! My dr stripped my membranes, this is suppose to help get the process started. I'm crossing my fingers that he comes this week. It is tradition, Dr. Chang delievered both Brady and Emma. He needs to deliever this little boy, who by the way is still nameless. Yikes! I don't have much time left. I always manage have my due date around the time of my drs vacations. If I don't have this baby some time this week, then another doctor will be delivering. My dr is going out of town next week. I hope and pray we have a miracle this week.
