As we wait...

I am 38 weeks and 4 days pregnant. I am 3 cm dilated and I had my membranes stripped yesterday. (If you don't know what that means, just disregard it or google it if you're interested)

Our family is simply waiting on this baby to arrive. I have contractions just about every time I stand up and walk around but they quickly subside when I sit down and rest.

The kids and I ran to Kohls this morning so C could spend some of her birthday money from her great-grandmother. I thought we better go and get her some Spring/Summer clothes that actually fit before I am either too big and uncomfortable to feel like walking around anymore or until I have a newborn and am not really able to go out and wander around Kohls anymore with 3 (yikes!) kiddos.

Then we came home, ate a quick lunch, and headed out back to play.

I keep sticking my camera in my hospital bag, but then life happens and I run and retrieve it once again. I don't want to miss a thing. I don't want to forget these moments with my children. I feel the need to document not only the "big" moments in life, but the everyday moments as well.

It makes me feel as though I can make time stand still.

I want to "freeze frame" so much of what I get to experience with my children. This is why I love being a stay-at-home-mom. I have a million of these moments in any given week :-)

So, here is what we were up to...

One of my wonderful Bunco friends gave D this Cars tricycle. The kids are having a ball playing with it!
This is David "painting" his toenails with chalk from the ground. And yes, he is wearing a pink shirt. He requested a pink shirt. And he likes his nails to look pretty like mine and C's. To me, it all makes sense. He is with us all day every day. Its only seems natural that he would want to be like us cool girls :-) But....getting a brother probably isn't a bad thing, haha.
And of course, I can never resist photographing my kids just being kids. They are so photogenic. Its probably because they have been in front of my camera lens since the day they were born.
And lastly, here is the only way I could take a self portrait of my gigantic belly.
And then of my new awesome highlights in my hair.
Between my painted toes and fresh hair color, I feel like a totally new woman!

Now back to waiting....
