{ insta-friday }

life rearranged

I've heard such good things about Dave Ramsey and his financial programs.  Since we have another one on the way....more than enough money...but no clue where it goes at the end of the month, the Hubby and I decided it was time to actually sit down and read "The Total Money Makeover" and get on a budget before Baby comes.

Mike texted me this picture while I was out giving a ride to a church member.  I was so suprised to see Mr. Little being such a dare devil.  Come to find out at one point he fell off the slide towards the bottom...but he was already to climb right back on and climb all over this slide.

I just love him.  He's been pretty cuddly lately.  I think it's because we are both trying to soak in the next few months before he is no longer an "only".  PS.  He's pretty excited to be a big brother and told me that he wants a sister....I told him we'll see.

Registering Evan for Kindergarten was like signing my life away.  Or his.  Or both.  I'm so glad it's all over.  I'm pretty excited to see him off to school.  He'll probably ride the bus which he's even more excited about.

Rain.  I'm so sick of the rain and crappy weather.  It's like living in Seattle.  Except we're not by the ocean.  Which begs the question why I would love to move to Seattle when I hate the rain.

{ oh what a day! }

Today we got another listen to Baby Little.  Because Mr. Little was off from school, we brought him along with us.  We figured he would get a kick out of hearing the baby's heartbeat.  He found it extremely funny when Baby Little kept "running" away from the doctor and then once the doctor had baby proceeded to let the doctor know that Baby wasn't a fan by kicking her.

While we were there we scheduled our ultrasound (in 2 weeks) and our C-Section.  I'm super excited now know exactly when Baby Little will join our family and to find out in what will probably be 2 very long weeks, if Baby Little is a boy or girl.

After the OB appointment, we headed off to the school district to get Mr. Little officially registered for Kindergarten.  It took way longer to figure out where we where we needed to go then it needed to, but we finally figured it out.  I'm excited for Mr. Little to start "real" school.  He'll be going to all day kindergarten.  We finally decided to get him registered for the school district we currently live in since I happened to look at our lease agreement and found out that our lease doesn't end until August 31st, and since that is so close to my due date, we may wait a month or two after we've had baby to move.  We've also been looking at houses to rent instead of rental town homes.  I love the idea of having the kiddos being able to run around out in a backyard.

But that wasn't the end of our day...

We still had Mr. Little's last conference appointment as a preschooler.  He only has 16 more days at his preschool before he's done for the summer and then moves onto Kindergarten.  He has grown so much since he entered GDK in Rosemount.  I have loved every single one of his teachers and it's so fun to see how much he's grown since the beginning of the year.  He still hasn't picked a hand.  However he never switches it consistently...a couple of days or weeks he'll write with his right hand, and then all a sudden he'll switch it up.  It's kinda of funny each day to see which hand he'll use.  And if he really turns out to be ambidextrous...more power to him.

{ insta-friday :: the pony edition }

life rearranged
I'm so pumped that insta.gram is now available for android...believe me as soon as I was downloaded on my phone...

The pony must have been feeling good because he kicked up his heels a little too hard and now is recovering.  It has meant for the past few days, we have lived at the barn making sure that Bailey eats his "horsey Tylenol"....

I don't mind the drive out to Farmington to see Mr. Bailey.  I love the country and being surrounded by it.  Seriously if I could move out the middle of wouldn't be a matter of "if" it would be "how fast can we get out there".

Sweet feed and horsey would think that would be enough for my horse to chow down...oh no.

After 2 and half hours of trying to get Bailey to eat his feed/medicine mixture...I finally caved and had Mike run to the store to pick this up.  Seriously within seconds of adding was gone.

After having sticky hands for the past couple days, I finally wised up and brought out some gloves to help mix up the feed, medicine, and molasses.

Mr. Little playing in the round pen while Bailey wolfed down his nightly "treat".  How I love this little boy....

{ let the nesting begin... }

I should be in bed right now.  No lie.  I didn't sleep well last night and since we had so much going on today (volunteering at Evan's school, grocery shopping, the pony needing his medicine (i'll write a whole other post on that), etc) I haven't had much time to sneak in a quick nap.  Okay I tried.  But between fielding calls from the dentist and Mike and Mr. Little not being so quiet...I slept maybe 10 minutes.

So instead of being in bed, I'm doing laundry.  Why?  Because I'm tired of looking at it. I am very much looking forward to being a place where I can just throw in a load as I walk out the door and not worry about if someone else with go through it.

And while I'm waiting for it to all cycle through, the spring cleaning/moving/before baby gets here lists are being made.  I don't really know where I'll find the time to complete it all, but IT NEEDS TO GET DONE!!  I'm hoping that I can at least hit Evan's room and maybe our room while the boys are at the inlaws for Easter on Saturday. 

I'm just itching to get it all done.  Get everything set up for the new baby.  I've been holding off simply because we won't know the sex of baby little for another 4 weeks or so.  Doesn't mean I haven't been pinning away on Pinterest.  Because Lord knows I have. 

Now if only I could just close my eyes and it would all be done for me.  No?  Crap.
