~ Getting Bigger, and Bigger and BIGGER!

Okay, so I am officially wearing maternity clothing right now. I knew that I probably would earlier with this one, since I can't stand to have on anything tight, and I wore them pretty early with my son. He was big. I bid on some maternity clothing on ebay and won one of the bids. I was so excited to be able to get the things I did at a cheap price. I'm all about saving money these days. I am so looking forward to making my husband stick to a budget. He really seems to have issues with it right now. But he'll learn. Ha Ha!

Well, I have my 17 week check up tomorrow. I am a little nervous, since I'll be having my ultrasound soon after. I am so wanting this baby to be a girl, and I know that I'll be perfectly fine having a boy; it's just that the anticipation of the wait is kind of getting to me. My hormones haven't been helping me out any on the anger front either. I'm still nagging my poor husband to death some days. I've realized that it does me no good, but I'm at a loss as to how to keep a reign on them. Do I just lock myself in a room when I feel this way? Sometimes I'd like to, but then I don't get the experience of yelling at anybody. Some days I just want to YELL! Loud!!! I do make myself feel better by just taking the time to play with Gabe. He always makes me laugh.

I can't believe how much Gabe is growing. I taught him this weekend how to put money in his piggy bank. It's one of those clear plastic banks that you can see the money dropping into. If I can get him into the habit of doing that with money, then hopefully if he finds a stray penny on the floor (not that I leave them there) then he'll automatically put it in his bank, instead of in his mouth.

I keep thinking about all of the things that I didn't do when Gabe was a little baby, that I'm wanting to do with this one, like take their picture every month the first year. I didn't do that with Gabe, and now I feel bad, like if I do it with this baby, will Gabe think I didn't love him as much? What to do? What to do?

I'm so ready to be working part time. I start July 1 working from 10-2 every day. I can't wait. I keep thinking of all the extra time I'll have to spend with Gabe and keeping my house clean. I definitely need more time in that area. Also, just the thought of being able to take a nap in the afternoon with my son, is incentive for me.

Well, on the baby front, I seem to be completely over morning sickness. I did get surprised by an ear infection this week. I hate to take antibiotics during pregnancy, but it's much worse to keep the infection, so I guess I'll be okay. I'll let you guys know next week how my appointment went. Be praying that everything is okay.

Bye for now and have a great weekend!
