3 Years Ago

Three years ago my Kasen was born. It was such an amazing, emotional, wonderful time, and I looking and remembering back to that day. Yesterday was his birthday and I kept thinking to this time 3 years ago I was.....going into the hospital, going through labor, having enough of labor and asking for an epidural, getting my epidural, pushing and finally being able to hold my big baby boy. He is the best thing that has happend to our family. He is honestly my best friend. We do everything together, and although at times it gets hard and trying, I would NOT trade it for anything. I hope we can continue to have a good relationship and that he always thinks of me as someone he Loves and Trusts with anything life is throwing at him. We had a fun little party while Tate was here on Wednesday and he opened his presents and had cake. Then on Thursday we had another little party for him and he got to play with a few friends which is so fun for him, he is a little social butterfly. Very kind and open, very loving and easy to forgive which it's usually me:) He is very active, and hardly ever sits still, even if he is watching a favorite movie he is wiggling and moving all around while trying to still pay attention to his show:) He loves the color Green, trains, horses, cows, playing at the park. He loves playing pretend with any animals. Playing usually starts out with a mom, dad and baby something , he has started to include baby sister in the mix of things, and says that she has gotten bigger now so she can play and we can go and get her from the hospital. (giraffe, dinosaur, horse, puppy, you name it) then after only a few seconds of playing nice and small talk in comes the mean monster that is going to eat the baby and the daddy has to save it and then it just ends up usually fighting with the monster. I am not sure about it, very boyish I guess. He loves Tigers, playing tigers, watching tigers, reading about Tigers. the only non cereal breakfast that he really likes are pancakes and luckily he likes my whole grain ones, so it helps out in his picky eating habits. he is very smart, counts to 20 and higher sometimes, knows his ABC's and recognizes them, can also write a few letters (t, and l mostly) He is our little negotiator. Every SINGLE thing has to be negotiated to terms that he agrees with. Example: Kasen it's bedtime lets read some books. You only get 3 tonight becuase it's late, no I want 5 mom, no 3 Kasen, no 5 Mom, okay then maybe you should just 0 books, okay 3 books mom. I look at him and can't believe how big and old he is, and then realize that I don't take enough time to just look at him and be amazed at this little guy! He is going to be one Amazing big brother and I am excited for this new adventure in our family.

Happy Birthday 3 years old. I made a monkey cake and was actually impressed. You all KNOW how crafty I am.....ZERO crafty, but it actually looked like a monkey, and Kasen loved it, so I was the hero for the night:)

35 1/2 weeks Pregnant. Oh all honesty I am feeling like it's getting time:) I am not sick, or really hurting too bad, but starting to really feel the effects of me not taking really great care of myself during this pregnancy and the weight on my body. I know, I know.....blah blah I am pregnant! Anyway she is starting to feel really low which makes it hard for me to sit down ever and then try and get up. I am starting to feel like I waddle which just makes me laugh:) Anyway, I am so GRATFUL and BLESSED to have this Baby girl inside me. She kicks me, rolls over, and lets me know all day long that she is alive and well. That is all that really matters. I am so excited and blessed to have this baby girl. I am very excited to hold her in my arms and try to be a mom to a little girl:) I am going to need some luck in that department I think:)
