Happy Happy Happy Birthday to my sweet, cute, adorably (sp?), attentive and very hyper husband. I love you beyond the limit, even (and especially) when you are absolutely crazy. I'm so sorry that we spent 3 hours in the doctor's office today, on your birthday, and then were sent to the hospital for unnecessary testing only to find out that the baby is completely fine, just 5 days overdue. I know you were holding out for our son to be born today, on your birthday, because it would mean that the waiting was over, but alas, he has your dramatic streak, and has decided to stay put until the last possible moment, 42 weeks gestation, which is NEXT Monday (and we are scheduled to be induced Monday evening). I know you are hoping for Tuesday (7-7-09) because that is the dog's birthday, and you will only have to remember one date for the both of them. I know you loved your presents and your chocolatey chocolate cake, and you especially loved the fact that we were together all day driving around just being us. You are my rock, especially lately when I fall apart every day because I'm so swollen and uncomfortable. You have been wonderful to both me and the baby for the last 41 weeks, and I know it's only going to get more exciting. Thank you for coming into my life, brightening it even when I didn't know it could get better, asking me to marry you and making me appreciate life with you every single day. I love you. Happy Birthday.

I've been waiting to get these pictures taken until my belly was as big as Kenny's belly.....I think I waited too long, however, he IS sucking it in, so don't let him fool you!! This MIGHT be the last prego picture of me...here's to hoping!

Here are some pictures of how I decorated his room this week. I really didn't want to spend a bundle of dollars on stuff he won't even enjoy right now, so I used fabric (blue stars) and stretched it across 4 canvases. I found some cute (but not too baby-ish) appliques and sewed them onto the fabric (before I stretched it on the canvas) and here ya go!
I think they turned out so cute! And they aren't too baby-ish or nursery-ish. I have some really nice black picture frames with white mattes already in place to hang on the blue wall on either side of the window after we take some newborn pictures. I couldn't think of anything else to hang up there, so photographs win! That will just have to wait till he arrives. The rest of the room is put together, the swing and bassinett won't be in here for long I bet.
This rocking chair was Kenny's when he was a kid, his mom saved it and gave it to us a couple months ago. See the blue blanket on the left? That's a Detroit Tigers blanket from Tasha! So is the baby cap on the bear in the middle, it has Detroit Tigers all over it. She sure knows my taste!
This ADORABLE little man outfit was a gift from fellow blogger Tana. My son will FOR SURE be getting professional pictures taken in this. Look at that hat!!
And the ABC lamp and picture frame was a gift from Kenny. He bought it somewhere during the winter and I think it was the first thing he ever bought his son.....true love! We have received so many wonderful, thoughtful gifts for this baby. We are blessed!
Now I'm off to have dinner with one of my BFFs for her birthday! Max & Erma's....yummy! And probably heartburn city, but it's worth it:)

My most "difficult" student (putting it mildly) was getting in line to go to drama class. I was standing next to the line waiting for them get themselves together to walk across the hall and I actually witnessed this young man DIG up his nose and then wipe the biggest booger I've ever seen across my homework poster. I couldn't even believe what I saw. It was SO GROSS. I wanted to scream but I didn't. I just kept thinking, "if that was my kid...." I waited until the class had walked across the hallway and then called him back into the room. I asked him what he just wiped on my poster and he lied and said nothing. I asked him the same question about 5 times and finally I asked him if he wiped his boogers on my poster and he fessed up. I made him scrub it with soap and water (the poster is laminated). He obviously lost recess today for it and asked me why he lost recess. Huh. I reminded him and then he fell silent. While the kids were out at recess, he came up to me and asked me AGAIN if he could play and why he lost recess. I asked him if he has ever picked his boogers and wiped them across his mother's clean kitchen counter. He answered "no" as if I was nuts, and then I asked him why in the world he needed to smear them on my poster. No answer. I think I made my point. You can think I'm mean all you want, but seriously, I think he got off easy. That was DISGUSTING!

Good thing no one was around to report her! She kept drinking and drinking, and then this happened.....

Allergy season is here, and I'm suffering this year. It's not pretty every morning! My eyes are so swollen (maybe that's a prego symptom, I'm not quite sure) when I wake up that I don't even want to look in the mirror!
Good news! My new laptop is here! Bad news, I have no idea how to use it or even set up the internet, so I'm not exactly on it yet. But I will be soon!! I'm so excited to use it! My very OWN computer (again) that no one (Kenny) can use! I tried to hide the fedex box when it was delivered the other day but no such luck. I had my mom tell Kenny over the phone that it was MY computer, not for him, his business, his work, or anything else. He just pouted. I'm not being a mean wife, you have to understand that Kenny has his own computer, and he has now taken over mine too, which is why my mom decided to buy me a laptop for graduation, so I could hide it so it wouldn't get taken over! I really do share everything with Kenny, except that. All mine!
My weekly appointment yesterday left me frustrated. The baby still has not dropped down, leaving me breathless and not sleeping at night still, however, I'm more concerned with going past my due date because Kenny was a 10 pound baby and his dad was 11 pounds. That's scary to me. And the longer the baby cooks in my belly the BIGGER he will be. Yikes. So I'm hoping for him to drop down into place SOON. I'll have pictures on the next post, hopefully from my laptop! Happy Friday!
