So we have about 4 weeks until the baby is due....not to say he will be born on schedule. I think the whole not knowing when he will come is stressing us out the most! Sometimes I just want to be done being pregnant...and then I think of how hard taking care of a newborn is : ). Most importantly I can't go into labor until my mom is here and I better not go overdue to when she has to leave! I need my mommy! I guess he'll come when he comes. Thankfully this pregnancy has been about a million times easier than Adam's. I've been having tons of painful Braxton-Hicks which gets old but at least I don't have to lay in bed all day like last time! Sweet Sweet Freedom!
Adam is really starting to understand that the baby will be born soon. He keeps asking how we'll get him out... hmmm. What's really scary is when he asks if he should go get a knife so we can cut the baby out. Yikes! I just tell him that the doctor will do it. Adam has been coming with me to doctors appointments which he actually really likes. He gets to listen to the heartbeat and talk to the doctor. Dr. Binnette asked his this week if I've been nice or if I've been getting crabby and grumpy. Adam said, " A little bit crabby and grumpy!" It made me laugh. Kids can so not keep secrets!
Mario has been great listening to all my complaints...poor guy! He totally deserves a medal. But my biggest complaint is that we still don't have a name. Yep that's right, nothing! We lay in bed every night with a baby name book and still cannot agree on a name. Mario is a big fan of naming the baby Mario....hmmm....nope! I'm sure it will come to us eventually. Well the baby might not have a name when he's born but he'll sure have a lot of love! If all else fails he can be hey you until he's old enough to name himself. How does Spiderman Aguirre sound?

Well almost....My goal this year is to read 100 books. In the past I have gone a year without soda, chocolate, and french fries. I thought of doing that again, but as a prego I knew that wouldn't happen. So I was inspired by my friend Tana to read 100 books, which is something she does every year. So far I have read 46 books. I usually read while Adam takes a nap and then during the couple hours between Adam in bed and Mario home from work. I really like this because I watch way less TV than what I was. Some of my favorites have been the Twilight series, The Chronicles of Narnia, and any book by Sophie Kinsella. So here is a little questionaire I got from Tana's blog all about books.
1- Who is your favorite character and what novel were they in?
Ginny Weasley from Harry Potter, I just really like her (Maybe it's the red hair)
2- Which book made you laugh the loudest?
Shopaholic and Baby
3- Which novel made you cry the hardest? The Fire of the Covenant By Gerald Lund
4- Which Antagonist pissed you off the most and what novel were they in?
Everyone who did mean things to Leah in the Abram's Daughters Series
5- Which novel left you scratching your head wondering what the heck had just happened?
A wrinkle is time, I read this book in Elementary and remembered liking it so I read it again. I so did not get it! Maybe you need to be a kid to understand it.
6- Which book are you most glad to have read? I'm really glad that I read Sense and Sensibility. I didn't really like it and it was a hard read. I wanted to give up on it so many times, but in the end I did it!
7- Which book do you think was the biggest waste of your money? I don't buy books. I only go to the library really. But the biggest waste of time was The Mermaid Chair By Sue Monk Kidd. I loved her other book The Secret Life of Bees, but the Mermaid Chair was LAME!
8- Which book scared you the most? Four Blind Mice
9- List a novel that you read because of all the great reviews and hype it got, but left you wondering what all the buzz was about? Twilight...but I still loved it. Does that even make sense?
10- List a novel that others may not have heard of, but that you really liked, and would like us to take a peek at. Anything by Roald Dahl. I know everyone has heard of him and they are kids books. But just read them as an adult...you won't regret it!
