It is going to be wierd having another baby in the house. I just love little guy so much, and it is hard to fathom me having that much love for another little stinker. I know this is how it works and it will all be ok, so I am just trying to enjoy these last few weeks with Grant. We are going through a big transition from 1 to 2 kids, but I am excited! Yes nervous, but excited! I had Grant at 38 weeks and 2 days, so it seems crazy that it could be here so fast! That would be Dec 9th...now I am sure it will be later, but who knows. I just get all jittery inside when I think about it. I am looking forward to meeting this baby that has been kicking me and throwing punches for months. I can't wait to see if he looks more like a Wirthlin or a Williams. Grant is a good mix, but maybe we just got lucky that time. I think he is going to be dark like John, but maybe he will be blonde and green eyed like Grant. My only prayer is that he is not colicky and doesn't have reflux. But even if he does this time, I am much more prepared to handle it- mentally that is! I guess that is the beauty about being a 2nd time mom :)

John deleted the few pictures he was in... so even though it looks as if he wasn't there- I promise he was! The weather was nice and the kids just played on the patio for hours while the adults sat back and relaxed. I couldn't believe how quiet it was at some points. I was just trying to enjoy one of my last holidays with having only one child. My life is about to get much more complicated!
We had a very small Thanksgiving group this year. It was just my sister and her family, my parents, and us. We didn't even fill the whole dining room table. I know my husband is used to a much bigger crowd during the holidays! It was my Dad's bday on Turkey day and he is a less is more guy- so we all just sat around and hung out. We had a great time and lots of fun though!

I just want to know if anyone else's toddler boy runs up to the chapel doors during sacrament meeting and body slams himself against it???? hmmm... where does one go if even the halls don't work during sacrament? How is an 8 month pregnant mother suppose to handle this wonderful situation? Answer- go home! Just as I had suspected the little stinker crashed right after we got in the car. Sorry I missed the second 2 meetings, but we had to leave daddy at church after I started having contractions from all the chasing and stress. Of course, as I was walking out- Grant was kicking and screaming- and I was just wondering what all the other mothers were thinking. I remember what I thought of kids like that- before I had my own! Oh well :) And just think, I am having another... i must be crazy!

Here are a few pics of Grant playing outside with John. I always love it when they go on little adventures together. I can usually catch up on cleaning and cooking and nothing is better than 30 minutes of peace and quiet. No tv, no music, no screaming! My favorites :) Grant definetly needs another buzz cut, and the pic of him waving at the airplane is pretty cute. He loves waving at things especially airplanes when they fly over.

I was doing pretty good the last few weeks. In just the last day or two I have gotten very uncomfortable. I'm not sure if it's the babies position or what, but I feel like he gained like two pounds and I just can't ever get comfortable. My legs hurt, my back hurts, my belly hurts of course, and lots of other things that I won't mention. I don't know how I am going to hang on for 6 more weeks. I am ready to die!!!!
