End of March already?

So March is closing down on me soon and I've been a bad blogger (though I dont think anybody actually reads this so its really more for me).

What has happened?

Boys BOTH got scarlet fever...Jack for the second time.
Larry got bronchitis...again.
I got bronchitis...again...and I was a huge whiny baby about it.
We went to the Children's Museum with some friends.
Ate an awesome meal with the same friends (minus the kiddos).
I started on a blanket for the baby.

So in lieu of an actual post, I'll just leave you with some pictures!

I cant wait for warm weather!!!

I'm so sick of the COLD...and to make matters worse we didnt even have a ton of snow all winter juts a few days of bad snow...somehow having snow makes it easier on me for the weather to be that cold. but it is SO deceiving to see the outside and it be so nice and sunny out only to be greeted by bitter cold.

Between me being sick with this pregnancy and the cold weather, Quinn NEVER gets to go out and do anything fun during the day. Sure we go to the store and out to lunch on occasion...but we've only been to the museum I think once and havent been to the zoo at all. I cant wait to be able to take him out now that he's talking and understanding so much more than he was in the fall. I want him to be able to do some fun stuff before the baby gets here and Jackson is off of school for the summer.

Okay so its not a tumor....

I am OBVIOUSLY pregnant. There is pretty much no denying can tell at a glance. So pray tell, I ask you....WHY OH WHY must people constantly point out that I am pregnant?!?!?!?!?!? Like I didnt notice....

Tonight, this very crass old man points at me and says "You're pregnant"...and I look at him as serious as possible and say "No I'm not its a tumor"....and then I walk away while he looks bewildered. Its not that I dont like him, but good gosh...I've pretty much figured out that I AM knocked up.

Why does me suddenly having a baby give every stranger the right to comment on (1) my weight (2) the size of baby I'm going to be having (3) how I should be so happy that I'm having a girl because I would never want 3 boys.

Lets examine these carefully....

(1) my weight. in MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS. My weight is between me and my doctor...but I love hearing how huge I am and then reminding people that I spent the first 1/2 of the pregnancy losing weight. So I actually havent gained a million pounds...its just my 3rd body is much more comfortalbe going back to that shape.

(2) I am only like barely 21 weeks cannot tell what size baby I am having by now and anyone who really knows me will attest that the amount of weight I gaine seems to have no affect on the size of baby I have. I gained a TON of weight with Jackson and he was only 5 lbs 6 oz....with Q I gained about 25% less than I did with Jackson and he was 6 lbs 7 oz. I have little babies but they get bigger every time.

and last...

(3) Of course we are thrilled about our daughter on the way...but if she had been a boy instead, it WOULD have been would have been great and we would have loved him just as much.

Please....if you encounter a pregnant one...THINK about what you are saying BEFORE you open your mouth! Do it for me...and do it for yourself so you dont come across that one crazy pregnant girl that flips out on you!
