Things I am loving right now...

ICE ICE ICE...I cannot get enough ice to chomp on!! I have done this with all three pregnancies and it is crazy how much I crave it. I have heard it is a sign of low iron, and I am low right now...Thank God for Sonic Happy Hour!

Pedicures...I am literally making excuses for weekly trips to our favorite nail place =)...we will be there tomorrow!

The fact that every night I go to bed before my sweet Shane and when he sneaks in bed trying not to wake me up, always does when he lightly kisses my forehead =). He then always says "Are you okay? Do you need anything? Wake me up if you do, Ok?" The same exact words every night...

Sephora Brand body line in Coconut Cream - body oil, body butter, and body wash -I am obsessed with the smell and taking showers so I can smell it =)!

Getting things in the mail everyday for Bree - most from her Mama as I am also loving ebay and Etsy and ordering a ton =)
Buying matching outfits for the girls...see what Shane picked out this weekend...They are these super cute dresses that are made from vintage rock tees =). Claire's is Guns n Roses and Bree's is Van Halen! Owen will probably wear one of his AC DC or Rolling Stones shirts =)Half off Juicy Baby at my favorite local boutique - how cute are these things??!!! How could I pass up this sale??!! I mean, Bree already has her first Juicy terry cloth track suit!!!! Marshmallow cream and graham crackers...
The color turquoise...see me in my 33 and a half week shot!...this picture cracks me up, look at Owen =)
My family and the help they have been and continue to be! It is going to rough a couple of weeks for me and I know that I can count on all of them to be there for us!
All my friends, near and far!! I have gotten so many emails, texts, calls and comments in the past 48 hours, it blows my mind. I love you all and yall do not know how much you mean to me!!!!

This girl...

Can you tell she is going to be a great little Mama? She has get a very big, fun month ahead of her including starting kindergarten and getting a little sister!! She is is so excited for both and every day she asks how many more days until each. She is going to be such a little Mama to Bree and so much help for me. She always asks me now, "Mama, can I get you anything? Do you feel alright?" Claire was my first girl and will always hold a special place in my heart...it is KILLING ME that is she is growing up so fast!!!!!!! I can't stand it! I remember holding her in the hospital one night at probably 2am and coming to tears when I realized that I would have to send her to kindergarten one day....

This little man...
How can you not love that cheesy grin??? I am in complete denial that he will not be my baby anymore and that he will be 3 years old on the 14th!!! He likes to crawl up next to me (not much room in the old lap anymore) and bend down and say "Baaaaabbbbyyyy Breee" into my huge belly =). He is kind of freaked out by her moving and won't touch my belly very long, kind of funny =). He has learned from big sis and will say "Mama, you alwight?". I always talk about how he has rocked Claire's world, well I have had a few mini meltdowns thinking about him in the next month. His bestest friend in the world...(I am not sure she feels the same way) Claire is going to be going to school every day soon and another baby is coming...he is not going to know what to think! I know he is easy going and will get tons of attention, but I have to admit, I have been feeling for him. He is such a sweetie (most of the time)!!

Loving God right now so much!! This whole pregnancy has been such a huge testament to me and Shane in how he has been in our lives! Without him, we would never be able to get through this! Claire says our prayers before every meal and she always ends with "and thank you for taking care of Mama and baby Bree." We are so thankful!

We would sooo be friends in real life!!! I saw your comment about the pillow - I just love Claire & Bree's rooms - I am getting my inspiration from them - your mom is making me a shoe bin for her room too! LOVE all the fabulous clothes - AC/DC & Guns - love it!
I know my Brynlee is 6 and I just don't know where all the time went - I keep telling her not to grow anymore and she just says "no, mama! I want to get bigger!"

You just have the sweetest family! I love those vintage rock dresses. What a great idea!

I do think craving ice is common with low iron. My mom had to take iron pills during her pregnancy.

Yes, things are going to changein the next month. :) I think the kids will adjust though.

This was such a beautiful post about your kiddos!

Getting excited about Bree's arrival, but hoping it won't be for at least a couple of more weeks. Rest up my friend, you will be in sleeplessville before long! Can't wait till the big school day too. Just remember first we give them roots, then we give them wings!
Take CARE OF YOU!
