Baby Nugget

This is my newest little nephew Luke. He is one of the most adorable newborns I have seen. My kids love him and can't wait until their little baby brother arrives. Last night Brooklyn decided that his name should be Nugget instead of Luke. I have no idea why, but that is what she calls him.
This of course causes lots of giggles between Zach and Brooklyn. He is a cute little nugget isn't he?
*I hope this is ok with Nick and Kellie, she is in no way, making fun of your precious child*

"mama, scratch my back"

This evening about 5:45 Brooklyn came in my room and wanted to lie on my bed and asked me to scratch her back. I love doing this because lately she isn't very cuddley with me, so it's nice to have her just lay by me. I had scratched for about 4 minutes, when i heard her snoring.
She was out cold. I hated that it was almost 6 p.m. but I knew she was so tired. I let her sleep for about an hour and then went to wake her up. Cute story huh?
Yeah, until I layed down next to her to gently wake her up and she began to pee on my pregnant belly and my bed. No more naps on my bed for her!!

I was helping Zach with his homework this morning and he was writing the number 17.

Zach: "I wish I was 17."

Me: "What would you do if you were 17?"

Zach" "Stay up late and drink Diet Coke."

Ahh the life of a 17 year old.

He lost it!

My 5 1/2 year old lost his tooth on Saturday! He was so excited and the tooth fairy left a whole dollar under his pillow. He has the teeniest little baby teeth, it will be quite the shock when his big awkward teeth start growing in! Yeah Zach

Cravings of a Pregnant Mommy

Lately I have been thinking about all of the different foods that I crave in my pregnancy and it makes me laugh. I have craved different things with each child.

When I was pregnant with Zach I LOVED LOVED LOVED Taco Bell. I seriously could not get enough of that place. Tyson, being the ever loving husband, would go get me Taco Bell at 10 p.m. if that was what I was needing. I remember just before I had Zach, Taco Bell had these Chicken Ceasar grilled stuffed burritos. I seriously consumed so many of those things. They just tasted so good!

I could not, on the other hand, stomach the smell of Roast Beef. I remember going over to Ty's parent's house for sunday dinner and just being so repelled by the smell of a Roast cooking. *(this is in no way, a reflection on Tyson's mother's cooking.)

When I was pregnant with Brooklyn my need for cheeseburgers could not be satisfied. I wanted one on average twice a day. Before that pregnancy, I never even liked McDonalds. However, I would catch myself driving through and grabbing one on many occasions. I didn't limit myself to just McDonalds. I also enjoyed a Wendy's Junior Bacon Cheeseburger. MMMMMM.

This pregnancy, I haven't really craved either Taco Bell or McDonalds. A few months ago I couldn't get enough Slurpees, but that has passed. I crave pickles all the time, which I know, is very common for pregnant women. Why is that? Other than that I plain just crave food. I know that some pregnant women don't use this as an excuse to eat whatever and whenever they want. I do. But guess what? I am almost 6 1/2 months along and I have only gained 8 pounds.

So who wants to buy me lunch????
