It is such a weird feeling to know our lives are all about to drastically change and not know when. It is so intimidating. I hope I can rise to the challenges of two kids. Marc has already taken on the role of Jude's right hand man. They are total buds and have so much fun together. I hope I haven't taken the last few months of just Jude and I for granted. I just adore him and love spending time together doing fun, silly things together. I love the way that he tells me several times a day "Mommy, I sure love you." It's like candy for my soul and ears. He is just too sweet for words and I hope I can still do a lot of the things that we love, like reading in bed every night and the way he climbs in bed with me every morning and just snuggles right up next to me. I'm so worried I might be losing my little com padre. Its going to be a learning experience for everyone I am sure.
Silly Jude things lately that I don't want to forget:
The other day I was dressed up as Iron Man (like most days) and Jude said to me, "I sure love you Tony Stark."
Today I was telling Jude that he was my handsome prince and he shook his head and said, "I'm just a eggular (regular) boy."
The other morning Jude came and climbed in our bed and he was butt naked. I was so shocked. Until I walked into his room and realized Daddy forgot to put a pull up on him in the night. OPPSS! :)
Everything is 3. Either three more minutes or three pieces of candy or whenever it could possibly apply. And he always says "3, because I'm 3 years old."
Playing cars after Daddy gets home from work.
Daddy has been so mean about teasing Jude there is a Gorilla in the house. Now, Jude just tells him, "Daddy, gorillas don't live in Utah." But Daddy has had Jude going pretty good a few times, so I told Jude we needed to get him back and we happened to walk passed some silly string in the store and thought that's a start. So we hid and waited for him to come home from work.
We met up with the Murdock crew the other day to check out the new aquarium. Jude was more into Nixon and copying his every move then actually checking out the fish.
Classic little boy pic
I know I'm crazy for letting him bring this worm with us. Jude was in LOVE!! He just kept telling me it was his friend. Poor lonely only child.
He's obsessed with the Happy song and likes to dress like him when he's not decked out like Captain Ameri
Daddy took Jude out on a Daddy Date to the aquarium and it looks like they had a great time.
Jude and I were desperate for something to do on a cold snow/rainy day and decided to hit a movie.
Jude jumped off the chair at the table right on his bum. I think he thought I was ready to catch him. So not! so he went to snuggle his boo and blankies and when he never came back this is what I found. Best surprise ever!
I always have to remind myself that allowing my helper to help with cookies means double the clean up. Always worth it once I'm done cleaning up.
I'm always worried it's my last chance for a belly pic. On the left is exactly 37 weeks and the right is today 37 weeks 5 days. Not sure why my stomach sometimes has a point and other times not. ?????
The Nursery. Such a different experience to have it ready to go before the baby is born. I much prefer it this way. :)
So nervous to meet our new little man. We are so excited and I find myself day dreaming about what he'll look like and be like. So many unknowns and all so exciting. I'm happy to wait a few more weeks though. My Doctor thinks I won't last much longer. I saw him today and I am dilated to a 4.5 and he said he wouldn't be surprised to see me this weekend. I have in my head that I am going to make it to 40+ weeks, so we'll see. When it come to my gut feeling about anything pregnancy related I am 110% wrong every time. Either way we will welcome this little about with loving, nervous and open arms whether that is tomorrow or in three weeks.
