Fender Marley!

Yes, it's been 10 days since he was born. I'm now updating.

He was born at 12:03 pm. He weighed 7lbs 3oz. 20.5 inches.

He's such a mellow baby. He's great!

I would like to post a birth story soon. I guess I'll have to type and save it on here. There's no way that I'll be able to get it done otherwise.

Yesterday, we both went to the doctor for a checkup. I weigh 2 lbs less than when I started going to Dr. Lee's office. I was at least

Fender now weighs 8lbs. He's 21 3/4 inches.

You just figured that out?

Hunter just told me, "Maybe I have too many Hot Wheels."

I couldn't help but laugh.

Daydreaming of insomnia

Easter was ok. Nothing spectacular. Mainly because a lot of plans were made and my mom ruined them. I didn't cook dinner since because I had planned on people being here. It was suppose to be a pot luck sort of deal. Everyone was going to bring something to make it easy on me. My mom had to work and because of that she decided that it wasn't a good idea to "bother me". So she called people and told them it was off. Thanks mom! {sarcasm} We ended up having Taco Bell. I guess it's not as bad as it sounds, because I have been craving it.

Dying eggs in their undies.

Some eggs....I'm sure that this is the last year that I get to pick out the dye kit lol.

It was such a nice day out on Easter. The boys played outside. Oreo did as well. This is him taking a breather by me.

I can give you peace of mind with a forced smile

Hopefully my pregnancy is nearing to an end. I lost my mucous plug!

Billy ended up taking Hunter to go clothes shopping. They came back with 3 shorts and 1 shirt. Yup that's enough for spring {insert sarcasm}. At least they did come back with the right sizes. I guess I'll order some clothes online for him.

I really can't wait to have this baby. I'm tired of the phone calls asking if I have had him yet or how I'm feeling. I'm not one that wants to bring attention to myself when I'm pregnant. My mom called me a bit ago. I've already told her to that I will call her if I'm in labor. I was tired of her asking her how I was feeling. She now calls to ask me something stupid. Like today it was, "How to clean to clean a Coach purse." Come on, she doesn't own a Coach purse!

I guess I should be thankful that she does care about her grandkids. That's more than I can say for the other grandma. Billy's mom doesn't seem to care about the boys at all. For example, Billy asked her to go to Toys R Us near her to get Ryder some wooden toys they had on sale. We'd give her the money for them. She said ok. Did she ever to go TRU? NO. Never a mention of the toys again. I mean I could have went to TRU if I knew that I couldn't rely on her.

I do not mean to sound greedy or whatever with this rant about MIL, but she said that she'd send the boys giftcards for Christmas. That way it would be easier to send them in the mail (she lives 2 hours away.) Hunter knew that he was suppose to get it. He had been eying a toy a Walmart. We told him that he can get it when Granny sends him his card. Months later no card. He was upset that she promised and didn't send it. We ended up buying the toy for him. It's not like she doesn't have the money. She's full of broken promises. I think it's a trait that one picks up when you live in Southern Illinois. They have different morals than the rest of the world.

Ok my rant about MIL is over for now. Thankfully I don't see her much. I'm sure that I won't see her when I have Fender. I'm not sure if it'll be a blessing or if it'll hurt Billy that is mom doesn't show up.

I watch the earth fall apart slowly collapse around you

Why can't my contractions be regular?

It's super annoying to have them, be dilated to 4cm, and not in active labor.

I'm making Billy finish up Easter shopping for the boys tonight. We just need some things to fill up plastic eggs with.

In the morning (as long as I'm able to) I'm going to take Hunter to JcPenny to get him some spring clothes.

Pregnancy update 38w2d

I'm still pregnant. I'm not feeling bad, so I'm not really complaining. At my last doctor's appointment I was 4 cm dilated and 60% effaced...this was Monday. I'm hoping that it'll happen soon though lol. My doctor wanted to induce me yesterday. I said no. I've been induced with all my pregnancies. This is my LAST, and I want to go into labor on my own.

Hunter-I had to be induced 2 weeks early because I had pre-eclampsia.
Camille-I was induced and 40.5 weeks. My body didn't react like I was pregnant due to all the problems that she had.
Ryder-I was induced on my due date. My doctor asked if I wanted to be induced. I said yes. I was so eager to meet the booger after loosing Camille.

I'm slowly packing my overnight bag for the hospital. Sadly, I'm not in a rush to do it though. I live 5 minutes away. If I forget something, Billy or my mom can easily run to get whatever I need.
