We Miss You Daddy!

Nick has been gone on his fishing trip since Thursday morning and Ryan and I are missing him!
Luckily Ryan has been a pretty good boy for me..we've been staying pretty busy.

Daddy will be back tomorrow and we are excited to see him!

We love you daddy! :) You are not going to believe how swollen my feet have gotten since you have been gone...It's pretty cute!

The Swelling Has Begun...

My poor feet! They have started to swell just like they did when I was pregnant with Ryan...
I have 7 weeks until my due date..hopefully they won't get too bad!

Waiting on Baby Reece...

In our effort to save some money, Nick and I decided to have our own Maternity photo shoot. We went to Ben Geren yesterday afternoon and took lots of pictures. I have posted only a few and I am having the rest printed to put in an album.

I would say that Nick did a great job at being our photographer!!! Especially considering the extremely white model he had to work with! Ryan was a very good subject for the pictures..but mommy has looked better before...

We are going to take some more sometime at our house also, so I will post them when I get them!

Ultrasound Pictures

I had my 32 week ultrasound this morning!!

We are still having a boy! He is 5 lbs. 1 oz. right now and very active!
She told us not to worry about the dark spot that looks like a hole on his's not a hole!! :)
He is already head down, and in the exact position that Ryan was at this point! She told us that he has long legs (just like she said with Ryan)...Surprise!! I wouldn't expect him not to with Nick and me!! She also said he is taking up all of the space he possibly can..his legs were stretched out completely straight at one point! LOL! No wonder I am so uncomfortable....

After seeing him, I am even more ready than I was for him to be here! I can't wait to see what he really looks like and I really hope that he is a good baby...

We got some really good pictures, so I have posted just a few of them...

Going to See Baby Brother!!!

We are leaving in a few minutes to have my 32 week ultrasound. I asked Ryan if he wanted to see baby brother this morning...and he said "Nooo".
Poor Reece..Mommy and Daddy are excited to see him!

I will post ultrasound pictures after we get them!

Thanks Aunt Sam!!!

Yup!! We still have all of the balloons from Matt's graduation party last Saturday! What you see in this picture isn't even all of them!
Ryan had so much fun playing with these balloons at Sam and Matt's house, that his Aunt Sam bagged up 2 big trash sacks full of them to take home!! Thanks Aunt Sam!

As Ryan was watching Dora this morning (again...) he was also gathering all of his balloons to sit on the couch with him. I turned around from my desk to check on him, and thought this was really worth sharing! So I grabbed my camera.
We have gotten a lot of use out of these balloons..he is pretty easily entertained!

Our New Diaper Bag

Ryan and I ordered a new diaper bag from "Keep It Gypsy" a few weeks ago, and we went to pick it up yesterday! Thanks for paying our balance NaNa!!! :) It turned out really cute! It has a divider down the middle so I can keep baby stuff and big boy stuff separate! :) Now all we need is Reece to share it with....

Watching Dora

These are a few pictures of Ryan sitting on the couch watching Dora the Explorer (one of his favorites) and eating some Honeycombs.

Happy Mother's Day!!

Well, this is my 2nd Mother's Day!!! Ryan got me a gift certificate for a much needed manicure and pedicure this year! He knows what his mommy needs! :) I think he may have had some help from his daddy...I am so lucky to have such a sweet son! I am very excited to meet his baby brother in a couple of months also..I hope he is as sweet as Ryan! Even though Ryan can be a little monster, he can also be the sweetest little guy and I am very blessed to have him. I am thankful for him every day!!!!!

Happy Mother's Day to my mom! I love you so much...I know you know that! You are very special to me and you always will be! Thank you so much for EVERYTHING!!! I am so blessed that even though I have a wonderful mom, I also have a wonderful friend! I know that I can count on you for anything and everything all the time! :)

I also want to wish a Happy Mother's Day to all the other moms in my family! Mamaw, Gigi, Michelle, Barbara, and Lindsey (this is her first!!!).

Thank you to Ryan for being such a blessing in my life! I truly don't know what I would do without you!! I love you so much!
Thank you to Nick for being such a great daddy! I am very blessed to know that my kids and I are so secure to have such a great man as "our daddy"!!!
Thank you to Reece....for kicking me and giving me heartburn! I can't wait to meet you and I already love you!! Be a good boy for mommy! :)

Happy Mother's Day!!!

Today's Fight

Pretty much every day, Ryan and I have at least one massive fight. He makes small things a lot harder than they need to be!!! I wonder where he gets that??! (We both make our seemingly easy lives a lot more difficult than they need to be!) Today (and most days) it was getting his teeth brushed! He will not keep his head still and he grabs my hands with his and it is a huge hassle that usually blows up into a big argument! Here are a couple of pictures of Ryan a few minutes after I brushed his teeth....

Reece Daniel!!

Well, it's official! Reece Daniel Rodebush! Even before my voting poll closed, Ryan and I ordered a new diaper bag for "Ryan & Reece".
We are very ready to meet him now, especially that he has a name! :)
Mommy is very ready to not be pregnant anymore..I am at a pretty uncomfortable stage now. I know that after this stage comes sleep deprivation and exhaustion, but that sounds better than how I feel now sometimes!
We have another ultrasound scheduled for May 19 to check Reece's size and position...hopefully he is head down already!
Thanks to everyone who voted for your opinion! We needed that, because we were leaning more toward the other spelling.
