less than 4 weeks to go!

This week we finally got started on building our house! Next week the foundation is poured, and our builder is thinking we should be in at the end of October, woohoo! I can't wait to move and get organized in the new house! It will be awesome when the boys can have their own bedrooms, Levi will sleep in the bassinet in our room until we move, then we can set up his crib (which is still in the box) in his room. Last night we went out with friends to the BOB for dinner, what a beautiful night! I was a little uncomfortable and felt like i was having contractions while we were eating, but they went away...I am SO excited to meet my little Levi, but i would like to go at least another week or two....

35 weeks!

35 weeks! YAY I am so thankful to have made it this far! My non-stress tests have been going good, however yesterday's test Levi's heart rate was getting up in the 80's. nothing to be concerned with as long as it consistantly stays in the 50's but it's normal for it to get that high with an active baby! My doctor laughed and said i am going to have my hands full! LOL heard that one before! Ethan was every bit as active in and out of the womb! by the way, i am LOVIN this weather! It feels so good to not be sweating!! Here are my 35 week pics, i took them myself so the first one is a little off centered (=

"Mommy i a baby"

This is what Ethan says to me this morning , after he climbs up on the changing table with a bottle in his hand, and asks me to change his diaper. I think Ethan is already a little jelous of the baby, and he isnt even born yet!

today's accomplishment....

Braided sweet bread with raspberry filling and cinnamon crumble topping..... Simply Delectable. this picture is my second piece... one for me and one for Levi! LOL This morning mom and i made 8 loaves, 4 raspberry and 4 blueberry. My mom has been making bread ever sence i was little. She had a stone grinder, (now she has an electric one, she gave the stone grinder to me) and she would order grain from Canada. this grain is a 'soft white grain' that makes delicious bread. My mom and Bill's mom got together and my mom got bill's mom totally HOOKED on this bread. So she bought herself a "grain mill" and a Bosch mixer. (now this is no ordinary mixer. The Bosch mixer has the same motor capacity as a washing machine! It has to to be able to handle dough for 5 loaves at a time! The first time i turned on my mixer, my husband says "Now THAT is my kind of mixer" HAH a badass mixer if you will (: This is a family tradition in BOTH families now!! SO back to bread making... This bread is an important part of a healthy lifestyle. and let me tell you why.
1. Made with honey instead of sugar
2. Made with NO preservatives unlike storebought breads.
3. Made with fresh grain, not only does it taste better than flour, it is rich in vitamins and minerals and loaded with fiber! (natures broom!)
4. this particular recipe is made with Lemon zest, maple syrup and fresh berries, which are packed full of antioxidants!

mmm..... can you tell i am bored? haha (;

As of lately...

34 weeks...

and feeling great! I have been going in 2 times a week for a non-stress test just to monitor baby and make sure everything is ok! I have pretty much everything ready for him, clothes washed and put away, bought diapers, wipes, bottles, double stroller etc etc! only 6 more weeks! Company party relay race... bill running with a beach ball between his legs. Ethan thought it was hillarious!

Uncle Joe & Auntie Jenna came over to watch a movie with us a few nights ago and made ethan's bed in the living room... he LOVED it!! They are the best!

Ethan has been obsessed with headbands and chapstick
