So Different

This pregnancy is so different from my first two with the boys. It makes me wonder if maybe i will get my girl this time. It is just over all different. Almost everything have been a new and different experience with this bun in the oven.

For instance the cravings are a plenty! With Phabian i really didn't have any strong desire to eat anything. I know Tuna Salad tasted really good but i did HAVE to have it. I did have an aversion to meat (other than seafood) but i don't really know how you compare that. With MJ I only had one craving and that was Jalapenos. I ate them on everything but once again i could have lived without them also.

This time, this baby, all i want it breakfast food. I consume massive amounts of orange juice to the point i am scared i might overdose on Vitamin C. My freeze and fridge is packed full of bagels, waffles, pancakes, sausage, bacon, biscuits, and anything else you might desire to fix breakfast for a king. I cant make it a day without eating some sort of breakfast food.

Today i ate a sausage, egg, and cheese croissant. It was so good that i wanted another but was out so i fixed scrambled eggs with cheese and ate it on toast. If i cant get this under control i am going to gain 100 pounds!

Another difference is my nausea. I never had any of that upset stomach, nausea, vomiting, morning sickness or what ever you want to call it. My sister was so jealous that i never went through that but this time around it seems i have been really nauseous. Especially first thing in the morning and it subsides around 2 in the afternoon. I still haven't actually thrown up and now as i approach 11 weeks it seems to be subsiding some as well as my constant tiredness.

I am so excited for this journey and can not hardly wait the 5 to 9 weeks it will be before we find out what we are having. As bad as i want a little girl i am not getting my hopes up. I will love this baby boy or girl and it seems to me that adding another boy to are family would be almost easier as we already know the routine. Adding a girl however would be a new adventure and a cute girly one at that.

So far so good though. My blood pressure looks good, i have yet to gain any weight, and i am coming out of my first trimester slump. All looks and feels well for a great beginning to a now 29 more week journey.

3 Years Ago...

Three years ago today you came into my life and changed it for the better!

At 6 pounds and 2 ounces and 18 3/4 inches long you made an irreversible impact on our lives!

Your Daddy could not have been more proud to have another son!

Your Aunt Chelsie thought you were so handsome and sweet!

You were Mommy's little love bug!

And in three years of life not a thing has changed! You have changed so much over time. From my small baby boy! To My handsome 3 year old big boy!

You are so smart and kind! You love to cuddle with your Mommy and especially right after you wake up. Your smile can light up my day and your little voice with its tiny lisp makes my heart melt. You can count to 20 and you know your ABC's. You recognize letters and can spell MJ even though it isn't your full name. I am always astonished at the new things you learn to do every day. I love watching you grow and learn. You love Cars and i think it is quite possible that you might grow up to be a race car driver. I love to watch you zoom around from room to room pretending to be Lightenin McQueen! Your imagination is beautiful and i pray to God that you always keep it.

I want you to know that even though Mommy and Daddy are having another baby you will always be our baby boy. You are special to us beyond compare and no one on this Earth could take your place. I look forward to many more years of cuddling with you and watching your grow. I hope you never out grow my hugs and kisses. And please know there is always room for you in Mommy's arms!

I love you Marcus Eugene Jr! More than you will ever know!!!

Happy Easter!

I would love to do a more meaningful post about Easter but i am busy running around like a chicken with my head cut off preparing dinner and Easter eggs hunt fun! So i guess you will just have to do with cute pictures of these two handsome boys dying eggs and opening their baskets!

I Won!!!

I am so late doing this but i figured better late than never right!

During the Ultimate Blog Party 2009 hosted by 5 Minutes For Mom i was a winner of a wonderful gift.

I won this beautiful 3 Tier Diaper Cake from Diaper Cakewalk's Bestsellers! This specifically is the Centro Baby Diaper Cake.

This cake comes packed with great things to fill a diaper bag full with like a pacifier, wash clothes, baby shampoo, body wash, rash cream, powder, lotion, and 40 to 45 Pamper Swaddler diapers in size 1-2 (up to 15lbs).

This great gift is offered to everyone for a cheap price of $59.00. I think that is a steal for this adorable gift. Oh and did i mention the adorable stuffed animal!

This will make any expectant mom as happy as can be! So if you know a mom to be and want to get her a unique gift please consider Diaper Cakewalk.

Wordless/Wordful Wednesday 8

Of all the flowers that bloom in the spring the Violet has to be one of my favorites. It has the most beautiful color! I also admire it's freedom. It just grows randomly anywhere it wants. It grows in patches or it can be independent and grow all alone. It is a very mysterious flower to me. It is there and then it is gone after the first mow of your lawn. I think i would like to be more like a Violet in many ways. What is your favorite spring time flower?

Other than that not much else to report until the next US or Appointment. For now here are the pictures!
