i'm back... for a minute

so, ok, i am a big ol slacker
or at least that's what i thought
and i thought i was the wimpiest pregnant lady ever
until these crazy ladies started measuring my giant baby every other week
latest weigh in... 8 lbs 14 oz with 4 more weeks to go
need i say more?
well, i'm going to :)
that being said, i am going to do a little catch up post
then i'm going back on hiatus until giant baby is born and
i am bored to tears on maternity leave :)

by the way, can i just share how entertaining my boys are...
they recently found the free karoake channel On Demand
every friday night they sing and dance for me
the little one's favorite is the freaks come out at night
remember that song?  it's great

and right now as i type this
the little guy asked mister for grape juice
mister gives him pickle juice instead
so glad i have them here to keep me entertained

word(y) wednesday

so forgive me...
but i have a few things to say about this SUPER cute photo collage
this is puppy
yes, puppy is his name
because if i allow him to have a "real" name
he will live here with us forever
and really, i am about to have a monstrous baby...
i can not take care of a puppy right now :(
although it makes me sad...
if you know anyone who is looking to give a sweet puppy a loving home
let me know
he is getting shots monday and will be ready for a family to love him

I found this poor guy in the woods while working
he was in bad shape
after 3 visits to the vet and lots of love and play at our house
he is doing great...
his fur is growing back and he's putting on weight
he is ready to be a member of someone's family
