But I have to give credit where credit is due...Stay at Home Moms, I have no idea how you blog. When I was at work, I could update my blog over lunch hour...but when I was home alone with Tyler all day, we were on the go 24/7.... and that pretty much made it next to impossible to do anything else.
And being 8 months preggers and exhausted by 8pm every night didn't make it easier.
But needless to say we've spent the last month getting ready for Baby Jacob!
I can't believe it's almost here...I'll be a new mom again in 4 days!!!!
I'm so ready to have him here and smother him with kisses!!!
So what have we been up to in April??? Well, Ben had his bday the week after Easter. I hosted a poker party for him at our house, complete with cake, booze and pizza.
While the men played, the wives took the kids out for jumping at Sky Zone and then hit up Mellow Mushroom. Everything went off without a hitch and the kids had a great time.
The next weekend was Ben's big weekend competing with all the neighbors in the Warrior Dash. He kicked butt and I can't wait to join in the fun next year. That evening we all went over to Jill and Shawn's for pizza and fun times!
The week of April 15th, Tyler and I took off to Spartanburg for the week to spend some quality time with Nana and Poppa.
I left Sparkle City on Friday and Tyler stayed behind to go to the Drag Races in Charlotte with my parents.
Meanwhile, Ben and I had neighbor night out with all of our neighborhood friends. Tons of fun at dinner and then bar hopping (even if I had to be DD).
The next weekend (the last weekend in April) my parents came back into town and my lovely neighbors hosted a baby shower for Little Jacob. We went to a paint your own canvas place and had a blast!!! (Yes, we painted wine bottles...if you can't drink it, might as well paint it)
I felt so happy and blessed to have so many wonderful friends in my life!!!
The past couple of weekends, I've really just taken the opportunity to rest. It was getting harder and harder to keep up with T all day during the week when I was so far along in my pregnancy, so on the weekends I took the opportunity to catch up on sleep!
This past weekend, we spent Mother's Day having Brunch at our neighbor's Melanie and Jared's house and Ben got me (because I asked) 3 training sessions at the gym for post baby workouts!
Tyler headed back to school this week. He's had a little bit of adjustment issues but nothing too major. He mostly just misses Mommy during the day.
I am truly truly grateful that I've had these past 6 weeks to spend with my amazing little man. I tried to set up everyday as an adventure, and we really became even more attached than we normally are. I'll leave you with some pictures of our time together during "Mommy/Tyler adventure of 2013" and I'll update you in a couple of weeks after Jacob arrives. Pray for us on Monday!!!!
