Five pounds and growing.....

Wahooo...My little Alex is growing. I don't know why that makes me such a proud momma, but it does. Every time we had an ultrasound, they always talked about how small he was. So I have to admit, I was a tad bit worried about my little Alex. In fact, they didn't think he would even be over six pounds when he was born....But...When I went to the doctor yesterday, and he was feeling around my stomach, he estimated that Alex is already five or six pounds! Wahoo!!!!!!It was just reassuring to me that he is still growing in my tummy(which you can defionatly see on the outside, since I am expanding every day)....I go again in two weeks, then I start going every week...Did you notice on the blog it says I have 38 days to go..Wow!
Well anyways. In other news. i had the best weekend!Thursday night I had a spontaneuous get together at my messy house. Todd's mom and Bill and Kellie, and my mom and dad came over and had hotdogs and other random stuff I could pull together to eat. Then we went and watched the Collegedale fireworks, sponsored by the makers of Little Debbie. It was a great show, but the most fun part was being together with both of my wonderful families. We laughed alot, and had a blast.
Fourth of July was a VERY productive day. .I was cracking the whip with my poor hubbie. I guess I am nesting..We finally got Alex's room cleaned out..Wahoo! We even got the crib set up.Not only was it a productive day, but a fun one. Who knew cleaning out could be so much fun. Todd and I laughed and cut up together all day. IT is so great to have a best friend for a hubbie:)
Sat we babysat for three kids all day so their parents could have some time together(she is about to pop with her fourth babe on the way). We had a blast practicing being parents. Then Sunday I went to eat with my sunday school girls....
I'm sorry this post is so long. I will end it for now, and will tell you about the GREAT CAKE DISASTER later. It was the only black spot to my great weekend, and it may still be too painful to talk about:)hehhe.I'll share after I go to therapy about it.

Hey .. i'm so proud of little alex.. mr. Five pounds and growing. I guess he's just going to be a little guy like his daddy-( i mean.. not that your not buff todster.. you know what i mean.. uh oh.. i hope my brother in law is not made at me now!) I cannot believe how quickly alex is coming. I am soooo excited for you. I can't wait to see pictures of cute little baby alex. He's going to be the cutest boy in the world. I hope that you have had an awesome week. I am glad that you got the nursury worked on and that you had fun because you know how sometimes projects like that can go.. i can remember us being best friends and almost killing eachother a few times in our room when we had to clean it.. but then again if i had killed you would have taken the blame because you are a golden retriever you know. Sorry to hear about the chocholate cake disaster. I love you sister
