Currently December 16 Edition

It's been a long time since I've written a life update post, and I'm not at ALL doing what I thought I'd be doing or where I'd thought I'd be for mid-December. Like, not at all! So here's the quick gist of what's going on over at my place in east Dallas:

- I'm still pregnant. At 34 weeks they *thought* they saw some growth issues with Otto that would have resulted in a 36-37 week delivery. I went to a {very expensive, out of network} specialist a few days later to confirm that, and she basically said, "Yeah, I'm not sure what they were seeing, but your baby boy is textbook perfect and very healthy! He's sizing great." I followed up with my OB who did her own ultrasound (instead of the tech) and she said the same thing: "He's looking great!" So no inductions. And unlike his brother, he's pretty happy in here, so despite contractions and dilation, no baby. Yet. Still. Why. Get out. Now.

- Today is Henry's Christmas pageant at school! He's a sheep. Can you even?! Hahaha! I can't wait. If there's a silver lining of still being pregnant, it's that I get to watch Henry attempt to be still and play a sheep at the birth of Jesus. This is going to be hysterical! And totally adorable. $50 says he takes a Shepard's staff and throws hay.

- Remember when I wrote these birth predictions? So the early part isn't true, and I'm also changing what I said about heartburn and hair color. I'm now operating at heartburn level one million and am eating Tums like it's my job. Perhaps another blond baby like Henry will eventually join us, because that child damn near killed me with heartburn and came out as bald/blond/peachfuzzy as they come!

- I JUST started my Christmas shopping. Like, *just* as in, I'm going to do it in a minute, right after I finish this post. Any other late shoppers out there? It's me EVERY year. Who are these people who get it done by Black Friday? What are their secrets?!

Ok, I need to end this post here. Because if I don't skip out and actually do this Christmas shopping NOW, hubs wont have anything and I'll be a terrible wife. Henry is too young to know or care, and honestly, he thinks the wrapping paper is the best part anyway, so I'll still be a rockstar mom to him regardless. I have a great post coming up Friday that you wont want to miss! I'm off for consumerism hell, tootles.

  2. That's adorable that your son is playing a sheep in the play. I'm sure he will look so cute! & it's very hard for little ones to stay still very long-haha.

  5. Hahahaha.
    I am seriously so excited to see photos from this play - a SHEEP?! What a sweet kid.

    And about Otto - girl, you gotta serve that kid an eviction notice! I'm so ready for him to be here. My new prediction is Christmas day... because that's just convenient. HAHA!

  11. Henry is going to be absolutely adorable I'm sure! I'm still not done shopping yet either, but hope to pick up my last few items on Friday. And, have you tried lemon and peppermint for the heartburn (just a drop of each in a glass of water)? I know it's worked for a few friends but some it was so bad it didn't. Worth a shot!

  15. I have yet to finish all my Christmas shopping. I always shop at the last minute. I'm not sure why I do that but I have been doing it for the past few years. Christmas pageants are so much fun! Watching all the little kids being adorable.

  16. I'm right there with you on the Christmas shopping! I haven't started yet either and Christmas is a week away!!! That has a lot to do with the fact that I don't get paid until Friday, though. hahaha. At least I do know what I'm getting everybody!! That counts, right?!

  18. I really got a kick out of your mug on your belly pic! Oh geez, just starting shopping?! My only motivation to get it done early is that I HATE holiday shoppers almost as much as I hate holiday drivers. I also usually buy a ton online. I hope you find everything in one trip!!

  19. How was Henry's pageant? Cute and funny?

    I started shopping last Friday and finishing up this weekend. I'm never this late but this year is crazy. Next year I have to do it earlier, cause I'm not going to be able to deal with the mall crowds. Ugh!
    In cute news, you continue to look beautiful lady. xoxox
