Oranganizing the cabinets!

The snack cabinet. I cleaned this out before I took a before picture. We use a lot of containers to keep snacks fresh.

This cabinet always looks like this. Albert put stops on the bottom two cabinets so we can put cans on there sides so we can get more cans in the cabinet.

Wow it's been almost 2 years...

Hard to believe that it has been almost two years since I last blogged. Life is passing us by and we just dont have enough time. I am going to try to keep up a little better now. Blogging was something that I really enjoyed. Bailee will soon be turning two, Bricen will be turning 6 and Albert and I have our 10 year anniversary approaching in May. Hope to be posting stuff in the near future. Feels good to be back!

I went to the Dr. yesterday and my blood pressure was 134/94 my NST monitoring was fine. The baby was very active and the Dr. assured us that the baby is very healthy. The bad news was I had protein in my urine. So he decided it was time to send me over to the hospital for a 24 hour urine test. So I will have been here for 24 hours at 3:00 which is just a few minutes from now. We are unsure what is going to happen from there. He told us yesterday there were several things that could happen. They would not decide anything until they got the results from my test. So we are either going to be induced today. Be asked to stay until Wednesday and they induce then orwe will get sent home then I will go to the Dr. Tuesday afternoon to have my cervix rippened and then I will report to the hospital Wednesday morning for Dr. Peach to get this party started. We would like to go ahead and have a baby since we are already here. What's a few more days when I am scheduled for an induction for this Wednesday. Well they just came and got my jug.
I had some bacteria in my urine yesterday so today they had mentioned starting me on an antibotic and I also have had a cyst come up that they are watching as well. So I am anxious to see what is going to happen.
We are getting bored. Bricen has been up here to see us twice. We miss him and we hope he is being good.
He has said from the day we told him I was pregnant that I was having him a brother well he has changed his mind in the last couple of days and he thinks its a girl now. He wants a pink bow for our door. So it will be interesting to see what this baby is. I hope it will be sooner than later.

Albert started tearing our house apart the first of January and then he seperated his shoulder by being a big kid and was out of work and out of doing anything for 3 weeks. He was working on Bricen's room when he was injured. I have a few pictures to post of how the remodeling is coming along. Bricen is back in his room. He picked out his favorite color- blue and Albert scraped the popcorn off the ceiling and put down new baseboard and put up new crown molding. He also got a new fan and Albert put a new closet organizer in that has given us so much more organization in his closet. We are also changing out the doors in our house. I have a picture of that as well.
Our room will hopefully be finished tonight. Albert has been working hard on getting our room done. We have all our furniture in the nursery which has NOT been done yet. He scraped all the popcorn off our ceiling. Our ceiling had been painted from the previous owners and it made it extra hard to get it looking good. He added some crown molding in the tray ceiling and new baseboard. Albert wanted to paint the room green and I picked out the color. He doesn't really care for the color but I like it. I have a picture of what it looks like right now and I will post more as we progress through the week. He has until next Tuesday to get my house back in order since we will be going to the hospital on Wednesday to have this baby.
He hopes to start the nursery tomorrow!

Which one will it be?

Amy had us some really cute bows made to match the dress so I wonder if she will be wearing them home of if he will be in blue.

Diapers Diapers Diapers

We have had two diaper showers. We have 1895 diapers and 1770 wipes. I wonder how long they will last us? Diapers are great when you already have one child and you really don't need anything else.

SNOW!!! March 1-2 2009

Bricen had so much fun in the snow! Albert and Bricen played in the bathroom sink with the 4-wheelers Sunday night and that was great entertainment for Bricen. Then they played outside all afternoon and they went to our old house and rode the rhino. Derrick, April, Champ and Chloe came over and we ate lunch and the kids played outside for a little while and then the guys took the kids over to ride 4-wheelers and the rhino over at our old house. April and I had some quite time and we played cards. The kids had so much fun in the snow and were wore out that evening.
