Sorry No Posts....

I'm working on getting things posted. It looks like I ran out of "storage" space on my blog so I am going to have to buy more.

As soon as I get some space freed up, I will get my posts done from this weekend.

Thanks for you your patients!

How Big Am I Going To Get!?!

My goodness, this third pregnancy is taking a toll! I'm only 8 weeks along but I look like I'm 3-5 months. This is craziness.

Not only is by belly big but I am CONSTANTLY hungry. It is like the food doesn't stick. Though I know otherwise because my belly is HUGE.

I'll have to have Rusty take a picture because I really have to share this phenomenon with the world.

The insane part is that I feel nauseous all the time so nothing sounds good. I have to force myself to eat even though my stomach is GROWLING.

Pregnancy is such an odd thing. All three of my pregnancies have been different so I have no idea what I am having. A part of me thinks this may be a boy but I'm wondering if that is what I really think it is or if I'm just trying not to get my hopes up!

Oh well, I guess we will all know in about 12 weeks!

Bath Time!

 Look how big he is!!!
I have to really keep an eye on him now when I'm running his bath water. He can stand up and is so tall that I'm afraid he's going to fall in.
He certainly loves his bath time though.
 Rowynn's favorite toys in the tub?
 A toothbrush and toothpaste! 
Hopefully this means he will have very good hygiene! 
What has been really keeping the mommy on edge though is when he tries standing up in the tub. I just know he's going to fall and bump his chin. 
I just can't believe how big he is getting.

Been Too Long

Sorry it has been so long since posting. Things have been super busy around here and it doesn't help that I am battling some morning sickness.
The last two Saturdays I have had my photography class. I am having so much fun learning all about the camera and how to take better pictures.
I took Rowynn in the yard to practice. He is a good subject but he sure does move around a lot!! 
Also, Rowynn is now clapping!! I'm trying to get it on video so I can post it but he won't do it on command. Hopefully I'll be able to catch it soon.

Starting today, I am officially a Scentsy representative! There was a lot of thought and prayer that went into making the decision and I feel that it will be a great way to make money from home.

What is Scentsy?

Oh goodness! It is the best way to get your house smelling AMAZING without lighting a candle. You just turn on a light bulb and your house begins to smell spectacular.

The best part for me is that the wax doesn't get hot enough to burn the skin so if Rowynn tips over the warmer the wax won't burn him and there is not fire hazard.

If you want to take a look at the product, visit my Scentsy website: From my website you can order product or even sign up to sell.

I will let you know how things go!

6 Weeks 1 Day

Today was my first appointment for this pregnancy and it went spectacular!!

The baby is in my uterus, nice and safe, and there was a sweet little flutter of a heartbeat! Those are our two most anticipated moments of the first appointment. I know it sounds a little weird but after the "weirdness" we have endured, I think it is normal.

According to the sonogram, I am 6 weeks and 1 day. That means that my estimated day of arrival is July 5, 2011!

After looking at the calender and taking in to account Dr. G's surgery day, I figure little baby Stamper will be here either July 1, 2011 or June 24, 2011. Seeing that Dr. G had a bicycle accident and will be out of the office for a few weeks, I'm not quite sure when he will do the c-section.

Yay!!! There is a baby in my tummy!

Nine Months!!

Okay, so I'm a little late on this post because he turned nine months on Friday and we have arrived to Monday. Where does the time go?!

Rowynn now crawls, FAST, everywhere he wants to go. He also pulls up on whatever looks handy. So, we have had some bumps and bruising going on lately (hence the fireplace cushion!).
He really enjoys looking through his books. I try to read to him a couple times a day but mainly he just wants to look at the pictures and turn the pages.
He has started making this new face. It is one of my favorite looks! I call it his scrunchy face. 
I vacuumed on Friday. That means I went over and hit the green button on the top of the Roomba. Rowynn really enjoyed watching that! Normally the vacuuming gets done while he is sleeping or while we are gone. Rowynn enjoyed following it around.
 I'm gonna get you!!!
My dear friend, Joyce, made Rowynn this lovely and wonderful quilt. Rowynn has enjoyed playing on it but this was the only picture I could get of him where he wasn't a giant blur spot! Joyce is amazing, she made a quilt for us that is made from Abigayl's clothes and she also made us a quilt for our wedding present (which I sleep with every night!). I love you, Joyce. Thank you.

Today Rowynn had his check-up and he measured in at 30 1/4 inches (95%) and weighed 22 lb 2.5 oz (80%).

New Phone

Hello friends and family!

This is for all of those friends and family without a facebook account. My old cell phone was chewed on one too many times by my beautiful son and it is now ruined.

So, I have recently acquired a new cell phone but have no way of getting any of the numbers out of my old phone. Please call me, text me, email me or join facebook so you can message me with your number. I would really love to have all of your numbers back in my phone.

Love ya!

Rowynn's first Halloween!!!!
 I think we were all excited! It was so fantastic to take him out trick-or-treating. Awkward, but fun.
 Plus, he looked so cute as Yoda!
  A lot of people thought he was Shrek.
 Rowynn hung out with Parker before we hit the neighborhood.
 My serious boys!
 I told Rusty that we will have to dress up every year. I think it will make it more fun for the kids (and us!) if we wear a costume every year.
 Besides, I think Rowynn enjoyed it!

The three musketeers! Rowynn is Yoda, Parker it The Thing and Chandler is a lion! I'm so glad that Rowynn will still get to feel like the little brother to these two boys. So cute.

Rowynn's First Pumpkin Carving

Pumpkins for the whole family! Even the one in my belly.
 Daddy is ready.
 Rowynn enjoyed playing with the pumpkin and the "stuff".

 Oh my goodness, he is so handsome!

 Mmmm... tasty!

 Yummy to Rowynn's tummy!

 I bet that felt good! All squishy and slimy.

 Daddy, Mommy, Abigayl and Rowynn
 Oh yeah, we can't forget the "yet to be named" baby!
Rusty made his two sided!


When my friend Katie invited me to be a fill-in in her Bunco group, I jumped at the chance! Especially since it was a costume Bunco party.

Rusty and I had already bought costumes for a couples party that didn't pan out so I was super excited to get to dress up!! Halloween is one of my favorite occasions because I absolutely love dressing up. Last year it just so happened that I found a reason too but felt like a goober when I met a woman I idolize!
This year I picked out Olive Oyl as my costume of choice. We really wanted to do a Star Wars them but it ended up being way more expensive than I had planned. I enjoyed being Olive Oyl though. Although, I felt a kind of huge in the costume since my belly is already protruding like I'm three months pregnant instead of a few weeks! In all of my pictures, I will admit to the fact, I have on my Spanx and I still couldn't get it to suck in a little further!
Here is Katie! She is Curious George (if you couldn't tell by the obvious embroidery on her shirt!) 
This was her second costume of the day! She is a first grade teacher and for school she went as a frog.
After our second round of Bunco, the hostess decided it would be fun to play a game of musical chairs. What a GREAT idea!! I haven't played musical chairs in FOREVER!

Katie knocked me out in the fourth round. Can you believe that she would take out the pregnant girl? Man, no fair!
It was a good time all around though! I'm glad Katie invited me because I had a BLAST!
