4 months/ Kay's Bradford Bash
Well, I'm 4 months...and the monthly pic has been taken. My belly button is starting to pop out so Rich thought it would be funny to make a smiley face. I wonder if my poor flower tattoo is going to start growing? EEEK. That could be scary.
Rich said he took all of the pictures of the baby from our doctor visit to work today and he has called me several times to let me know that he has shown everyone in his office how developed this baby boy is. He said, "Everyone has responded, YEP THAT IS DEFINITELY A BOY!" He is very proud and I am seeing the excitement and relief he has now that it is a boy and HEALTHY. He is especially proud of the extra large "boy part". I think he is going to start beating his chest like a gorilla. LOL!!! It's very cute. Erin (Rich's sister) text messaged and said she is excited that the two boys will be only months apart. HOW FUN IS THAT!? I never had cousins close to my age, so I think that is awesome! :) Erin said that Gianna will be making these boys sit at her tea parties. Funny. I told her that Rich and #1 will have these boys hunting by age 2! She agreed.
Kay Bradford's party (Bradford Bash) was this past weekend...her twin girls are getting so big! They were dancing while singing, "Lookin' like a fool with your pants on the ground!" They wanted to wear all of my jewelry and my sun glasses... Poor Richie got eaten up by chiggers! Usually that's me...that's why I don't like being outdoors in the deep woods. Yucky. I had to put nail polish all over his bites, I didn't have any clear polish so he's got an extra pink shine to him today!
There is an opening at Rich's office coming up and I am really trying to talk him into applying for it. He will be doing his dissertation this summer and finally getting his PhD. He needs to start looking into getting ahead...he is brilliant and really good with people, so I am encouraging him. I'm not so sure about being a Superintendent...that is a lot of work and a lot of hours and dealing with a lot of problems. But whatever God has planned I'm sure it will come to fruition!
Went to lunch with a bunch of girlfriends. Robin got me the cutest little outfit that had a monkey on it and it says, "Mommy Loves Me." It is so fitting because I have a feeling any of my kids will be monkeys. Meg gave me a pack-n-play, a stroller and a breast pump...Dear Lord, I won't know what to do with that! But I am TRULY grateful for all of my friends. I AM SO BLESSED and I look forward to helping others like they have helped me.
Time to do Real Estate so that I can make as much money as I can before this baby comes. And Ellie is scratching at the door to come in. I told her last night that she was going to have a baby brother and she looked at me like, "OH CRAP!" I started laughing.
Those who love money will never have enough. How meaningless to think that wealth brings true happiness! The more you have, the more people come to help you spend it. So what good is wealth—except perhaps to watch it slip through your fingers!
