Then on Sunday I worked on this Changing pad clutch. I can't wait to use it when my little guy arrives. I know it is somewhat feminine for a BOY but he is not the one who is going to be carrying it, I will be. It is green and blue? And I told Kory that if he thinks its too girly for him to carry, we can get him a super macho baby punk bag for him to tote around too, you know with studs, safety pins and patches :)
Speaking of Kory, while I ditched Kory all day Saturday to work on the bags with his sister, he worked super hard on our back yard. We had this GINORMOUS green bush that was right smack in our back yard, and probably was overgrown about 20 feet, kid you not. And he worked all day to chop that down in the blistering sun all by himself. Not only that about a month ago we worked on our back yard together to cut back/down some of our trees and I was no help at all. I had to sit down like every half hour because my feet would hurt or my back would from bending over. I feel bad that I am not much help when it comes to hard labor these days. Especially at a time when we really need things to cruise by quickly. If anything gets done on our house or yard it is because Kory is the one working long hours to get it done. I am grateful for all his hard work, he is so great.
But take a look at the before and after picture or our yard.
I have been thinking a lot about this pregnancy and how quickly it has gone by. Maybe its because it is over the summer, and lets face it, summer is just not long enough and by the time it gets here it is already over. I know I still have 11.5 weeks left, but seriously I feel like I should have 20. I am just not ready! I mean, a part of me is because I am dying to see this little guy, and hold him and kiss him, but at the same time I have all these worries. Parenting is probably a lot harder than I can imagine. And I feel somewhat in a chaos mode right now. This is a HUGE transition for us. I am sure I will be whistling a whole new tune come September and will just be dying to get him out! Or maybe once I have my shower I will feel a bit more prepared and can start planning and preparing and making space for all his stuff. But I just feel like this pregnancy, like the rest of my life it seems, goes by too quickly with not much air. Perhaps I am too busy and need to take some time to relax and rejuvenate.
Speaking of baby showers, my baby shower is going to be Saturday Aug 1, so save the date.
I am getting my baby shower list together and if you would like an invite to my shower shoot me an email and I will for sure send you one, or leave me a comment on here.
Our 4th of July was great, we went to a BBQ on Saturday at Kory's parents house and then one at my parents house on Sunday. (No pictures at either event sorry) Lots of good food and family tho.
Other than that it didn't feel too much like the 4th of July to me. No camping out for the parade, or freedom festival, or even watching the HUGE fireworks on blankets at the temple grounds.
But we did have to deal with the crappy Stadium of Fire traffic. And our neighbors doing crazy big illegal fireworks until 1 am! I almost called the cops, not because I am that crazy neighbor who hates those, because I could care less, but because every time they let one off, it would make a HUGE POP sound and it would send our dogs in to a frantic panic, and I was done trying to deal with that at 12 am, so for them to keep letting them off until 1 am was pure ridiculousness. (Is that even a word)
