The last days of 2 kids

In the back is Noble.

So I am now 29 1/2 weeks. Erik is quickly approaching his time to enter our family. While we await his arrival, we have tried to keep busy while we only have two kids. Last weekend we went to Provo to have a get together with some of Brady's mission buddies. He had fun. Nothing like reminicing about all the silly things you did for 2 years. On our way back home we stopped in Cove Fort to build a snowman. AJ has been learning about what you wear in the winter and what a snowman looks like in school. So we had to stop and build a snowman while there was still snow. The boys all had fun, but I think they were glad to get back home where it is warm, especially Noble my hates cold boy.

I have been nesting, a wonderful part of pregnancy. Today I made a double batch of split pea soup and plan on freezing half of it so that we'll have a meal to eat after the babies born. I have a few other recipes lined up for being made and then frozen. This way I'll hopefully have a weeks worth of meals prepared for my family. They really like to eat so I am trying to make sure their happy while I adjust to being completly outnumbered!

The pregnancy is going well. I had a little scare yesterday. I was having timed contractions, or at least they were similar to contractions I had with one of the other boys. I went in and everything was fine. I just probably had some other things going on inside. I did feel better this morning so that is always a good sign. Erik gets bigger all the time and loves to stick his foot under my stomach which gives me bad heartburn. This little guy seems like he'll be born as tall as his brothers at least. He can have his head down as low as it will go and a foot pressing well into a rib, wonderful feeling.

AJ and Noble are doing well. Keeping me going crazy. They have recently lost a bunch of toys due to mom putting her foot down and making them learn to clean up. They don't clean up, we pack up more toys they left out. They are learning all the time and do cute things too. They love to wrestle though I don't' know if it is fair cause Noble, small kid, always ends up on the bottom. I guess someday he'll grow big enough to have a chance.

Brady is loving his job still. He has been riding his bike to work alot lately. Mostly to save on gas and money, but also because he wants to stay in shape. Since he sits behind a desk most the day a good bike ride is probably his best way to fi in exercise.

Well, that is us in a nutshell. We are just trying to get things organized and done before the baby comes.

I totally know what you mean about nesting. i can't seem to get everything organized and cleaned good enough. Let me know if you come across any great recipes for freezing. I've been thinking about doing the same thing for after the help leaves. 3 1/2 weeks for us and then the kids will outnumber the parents. Scary :)

You are so awesome! And very domestic - I have a hard time finding the motivation to cook everyday! It's so sad! I'd better get start and start planning ahead like you!

I'm glad that Brady is fitting in exercise, I'm still trying to find a way to do that...
