New, blue, and improved

I was going to post pictures of our progress the past 2 weeks - but decided it just wouldn't do justice until all the finishing touches have been added. MC is upstairs and Mattox has the beginning of a nursery! It is truly shocking. Poor Matt had to move her crib while he suffers from an eye infection, fever blister, and the sinus crud. My Dad is the greatest! He helped me out since Matt is working constantly this month and then leaving for his ski trip in a few days. Overall we have moved rugs, closets, shoe racks, cribs, guard rails, bedding, wall decor, chairs, curtain rods, drapes, lamps, baby gear, and washed everything in sight. The new crib was shorted a few parts so we are waiting to finish putting it together - very disappointing after I bought a new mattress.

I had lost 1/2 pound at my doctor's appointment last week - so she took me off the no sugar diet and told me I could eat as much as I wanted as often as possible! Even gave me permission to eat an entire birthday cake! Yes, unfortunately I turned 31 this past Tuesday. Man do I feel old. Anyway, the dr is going to do another sonogram next week to remeasure baby Mattox because my belly is not measuring correctly. She didn't seemed too concerned but wanted to double check - which always leaves me wondering if I should be worried or not.

Can't wait for the baby shower tomorrow! Thank you Tyanne for hosting! At first I was a little disappointed in the "boy decor" as far as clothes and blue stuff...but I am really excited now and can't wait for him to get here! The trains, dogs, pirates, cowboys, trucks, and airplanes are starting to rub off on me. Question to those of you that have boy girl combos: Does your girl beat up on your boy? I saw a little girl in the store today literally beating her little brother up and it bothered me. I know older sisters fight with their little sisters too but I guess I got a sneak peak maybe or a mental image of the future with 2 children??? Disturbing. ;)

I have a younger brother and I think the worst I ever did was put him in a dress and put ice in his diaper! How cruel was I? :-)

i heard about your shower this morning in church. i hate i wasn't able to come, but will get a gift to you soon. hopefully before mattox arrives!

our girl/boy combo isn't bad at all. jordan ann doesn't beat up on jack at all - and he rarely does it to her either. yet...

the biggest shocker for me was the pure differences of girls and boys, besides the obvious. it will amaze you as well, i'm sure.

Addison doesn't beat up on Landry, but she's always wanted to squeeze him real tight and be in his face mothering him and he just doesn't like it. Now that he's old enough to fight back, he's starting to retaliate when she bothers him. It's interesting for sure. On the flip side, there are so many sweet moments they have together...especially when they are close in age.
