This is how I feel. I don't do heat. I especially don't do heat when I am so pregnant I could be mistaken for a large bellied animal. And yet, here I am. My kids say my hands feel like they are going to start on fire and honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if they did. I can't sleep. I feel like crap.

Yes, I am whining.

Can't we just order snow for the next 22 days? Pretty please?

At least I have found motivation to clean out my fridge and freezer. It is nice and cool in those places!

Zander Turns 4!!! Oh, and it's Father's Day

My kids decided that today would be a great day to adjust our sleep schedule. I had set my alarm for 9 am so we could get up and make Jack breakfast in bed, as is the tradition for Father's Day (I get the same on Mothers Day and it is great!). Zander had me up at 6:50 am. He is lucky it was his birthday or I might have been really unhappy with him!

Jack had a special request this year. He wanted pancakes with extra sugar and whipped cream so they tasted like sugar cookies. Oh, and he wanted hash browns with them. Heathly huh? Well, I had never made these particular pancakes before. They are Jack's thing. I don't tend to add sugar to anything. It took me over an hour to get 4 pancakes to actually turn out right. He loved them so I guess it was worth it.

We also celebrated Zander's Big #4. Here are some pictures:

And here is a pic of the sad little pirate ship cake I attempted. I am really not a talented cake person. =0) But Zand was happy so that is what matters.

It is sad to have your kids grow up. But at the same time, it is great to see the little people they are becoming. Zand is a little light in our lives with a smile that lights up his entire face. I am so glad that he is part of our family.

And, I am grateful for Jack too. I felt a little bad he had to share Father's Day with a birthday because Father's Day sort of took a back seat but he did get into the festivities:

He would totally kill me if he knew that I was putting that picture on here! Ha Ha Ha Ha!!!

The countdown is on! As of tomorrow, I have 24 days until this baby arrives! I am still in denial that I will actually come home with a baby.

Yesterday, I went shopping for father's day. I was at Home Depot. I barely got dressed, combed through my hair and brushed my teeth before I left the house. I felt huge all over. As I was getting ready to leave, I actually got hit on! And he didn't even look like he belonged in a pyscho ward somewhere. He was a normal nice looking guy. I have now decided that there needs to be a group of men who goes out and hits on very pregnant women because it makes them feel really, really great!

I am really looking forward to Sunday. Not only is it Father's Day but it is Zander's birthday. I can't believe he is going to be 4! Seems like just yesterday he was a little baby!

And now he is a big boy!
Time flies!
