Baby Will

My baby turned three on Tuesday, which seems like a pretty big milestone, so I thought I would post some pictures from throughout his little life. Time has gone by way too fast for me, but he will always be my Baby Will.

Another Gamer

For all those who are big WoW fans, or Halo, Half-life, AvP, Zelda, Splinter Cell, or any other awsome game that I can't think of right now, I have the game for you! Known as the HARDEST game ever! Yes even harder than old school Mega Man 3. It's called "I want to be that guy". The other bonus is it's FREE. I love open source software! So I suggest you get it and be frustrated! Good luck.

Growing Family

I went to the doctor's on Friday. Things are progressing along very smoothly. Baby is head down, I'm measuring right on track for how many weeks I am, I'm even starting to dilate. I have about three weeks left until the due date, but technically, I could be considered term. We've started buying a package of diapers every week so we can get a head start. That's what worries me as far as being able to afford another baby. We won't have to pay for the delivery, hopefully we won't have to buy formula, but we will have to buy diapers. I've forgotten how much we spent on diapers with Will, so I think it might be a shock for me.

My family is growing, and will continue to grow, and I have discovered that having a happy family is not just good luck. It takes a lot of hard work. My family and I have put forth a large amount of effort so we can stick together, but there are still some things that need some fine tuning.

I want my children to grow up in a happy home. I want my home to be a haven from the rest of the world where my kids can feel safe and secure. I think some things are going to have to change. We need to be more selective about the things we let into our home, like TV, movies, video games, etc. We need to be more actively inviting the Spirit into our home through scripture study and prayer. We need to spend more time together as a family, without any distractions, so we can all feel loved and wanted. I'm hoping that since I have written these things down, I will feel more committed to making these changes. I grew up in a home where all of these things seemed to be perfect. My parents did a great job keeping our family close and our house a place we could all call home, no matter the location. We all found happiness in everyday experiences, and that is what I want for my children. Now I have my own family, and I am looking forward to working hard everyday so we can feel secure and happy.

Back to School, again

School started this week for me. I got lucky and have only to classes a week. The only sad part is that I have to be Long Beach at 8 on saturday morning. I guess no more sleeping in.

My Favorite People

I am 35 weeks pregnant, feeling like I'm 35 months pregnant. At some points, it seems like time is moving so slowly the baby will never come. Other times, I can't believe I've already made it this far. I'm starting to get a lot of contractions, which is starting to scare me a little bit because I don't want her coming too early, but the doctor has reassured me that Baby Kat isn't coming yet.

I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to handle having two children. I barely have enough energy to keep up with my three-year-old. I don't know how I'm going to be able to function when I'm not getting any sleep. I'm also worried about nursing. I want to be able to nurse (think of the money I could save!) but that didn't work out very well with my first baby. I'm hoping things will work out better this time.

I could probably go on for a long time about the things that worry me, but in reality, it is all worth it. I'm am incredibly excited to have a new baby. I love my three-year-old, who will be a great big brother. But most of all, I get to share the joy of having children with the most wonderful man in the world. He is more that I could ask for, and definitely more than I deserve. He is the perfect father for my kids and the perfect husband for me. He is my best friend. I don't think I thank him enough for all he does for me. I love you, sweetie.
