Thirty, Flirty & Thriving

So its happened. I officially left my twenties behind, and I'm headed for those amazing 30s. I feel pretty good about it too. I had a lot of people asking me how I felt. Well I would rather not be pregnant and large on this momentous occasion but I haven't felt bad about it. I'm healthy, I have an amazing family with the most wonderful man. There really isn't too much to be upset about. The future looks bright. It helps that my sweeter/better half, Brian, turned thirty last year ;) Even though his patients keep asking him if he is old enough to be practicing dentistry. Forever young that one.

Well I love the movie 13 going on 30. I'm definatley 30, I don't know how flirty I am to Brian being as far into the Pregnancy as I am, but my life is thriving. I feel like my life has started in a more solid path. 2 3/4 kids later, were done with school and heading into the real world, and a house is looking bright in our future, and all of this happened on my 30th year. So I would say I am finally growing up and becoming responsible at 30. Wow!!! Took me long enough ;)

My sister-in-law sent me this great quote from C.S. Lewis
"Thirty was so strange for me. I've really had to come to terms with the fact that I am now a walking and talking adult"

So true!!

I'd like to think of it like my sister does I'll be celebrating my 29th birthday for a while till I get caught ;) One of my friends considers herself 29+1. So here is to 29+1!!!

Sweetest Big Brothers

Rory and Wyatt are seriously preparing themselves for little brother to arrive. They include him in everything already, thats right in-utero my little guy is playing up a storm. I've told you that they kiss and hug my belly goodnight. But a couple funny things happened recently.

Rory came up to my belly and tapped it. He screamed "Your it!" and then went running. Confused I looked at Rory and asked him if me or the baby was it. He said "not you mom, the baby". I thought that was so cute.

They always ask me if I am feeding the little guy.

The other day I was getting the boys ready for church. He comes up to me and says "Has little brother gotten his sunday best on.", "Of course", then Rory proceeds to think about it and says "I wonder whats inside baby brother's closet inside your belly, he must have a lot of clothes". I laughed so hard.

Seinfeld Moment

I am a huge Seinfeld fan! Love it! I just think its so funny how easy it is to relate crazy moments from life to a Seinfeld episode. For instance, last Friday I went to have a pedicure and manicure at this little salon near my house. Of course the salon was filled with employees that clearly English was a second language, which I have no problem with. So my little gal spoke English really well and started quizzing me about .... Yep you guessed it ... my prego belly. She kept looking at it and wondering why it was so big. she then proceeded to speak to the ladies around her in her native language. All these heads turned my way and a wave a laughter followed.

So here is where the Seinfeld Deja voo occured. Nail salon workers make fun of Elaine in Vietnamese, and Elaine laughs right along with them. She later brings in Frank Costanza, George's father, to find out what they are saying. Surprise, surprise they are making fun of her. She gets banned from coming into the Salon after that.

Unfortunantly I wasn't laughing for I understand that my large midsection is rather alarming to all cultures. Needless to say those laughing Hyeinas were lucky they got a tip. A return visit will not be in their future. I ban them ;D

This pregnancy has turned out to rather humerous with the reactions I have been recieving.

Just an update Sister Compliments (thats what I am calling her) found me yet again and decided to tell me the predicament Dr. Phil's wife faced when she gained 60 lbs during both her pregnancies and only had 6 lb babies. What do you say to that? I pretended like I didn't know who Dr. Phil was.

Double Digits

Our new little man has made it into the double digits before he makes his grand arrival. I can hardly believe how fast time flies.

Pregnancy compliments ... (Sort of)

There is a sweet, well meaning old lady in our ward that has come up to me on 4 different occasions completely taken by surprise that I'm pregnant. Its like she forgets every week that she already talked to me. She is a sweet lady that I'm sure she means well. Anyways here is a list of the top 4 lines she said to me.

  1. "WOW your big, is there twins in there? You better have your doctor make sure."

  2. "Your never going to make it to your due date, with the size you are now."

  3. "I'll bet your baby is huge!"

  4. "Your bigger than you were with your other two."

My response to them is "You don't say!"; "I'm pretty sure that my doctor knows how many babies are in there."; "Thank you for noticing."

I mean isn't it funny that women are the ones that say the oddest things to pregnant women. Weren't they pregnant before? I have a sense of humor about it and I'm sure looking at me would cause wonder. Refer to Big Belly Blog Entry. Were going to a football game with some good friends and they suggested painting my belly. I just might "shock and awe" those around. You shouldn't put such great ideas in my head. You never know ;) Just kidding!!!
