Only 8 or so more weeks to go before little Sydney joins us! It seemed like it has been this far off thing that would seem to take forever to get her, but here we are...almost there!
Malia has been feeling pretty good this last week, although she is starting to have trouble sleeping now. She has to get up to use the bathroom several times a night now. It seems as though she likes to tap dance on her Mom's bladder...little turd :)
Our next doctors appointment is on Thursday at the Womens Center where we'll be delivering. We have reached the stage where our OB doc wants to see us ever two weeks now instead of every month, so there's no question that we are getting closer to the end!
Its finally starting to warm up here...we even cracked 70 degrees last Friday, a literal heat wave. We started taking the dogs down to the lake that we live close to to get our handi-capable Jax some much needed swimming exercise on his knee. We found a nice little beachy spot that is secluded enough that we can let the dogs run loose and retrieve sticks and stuff. I really like that we can walk down there from the house in less than 10 minutes. I'm going to join them in the water once it warms up a little Jax went bananas today, as usual, trying to chase a duck. He almost got out to the middle of the lake today trying to get it. He was really committed, you could see him literally pulling himself out of the water he was swimming so hard. Such a special little guy...
|F you pollen!|
Mowing the grass has become quite the chore now. I have to suit up in long sleeves, pants, dust mask and goggles to keep from going into anaphylactic shock. I think I'm better protected than most guys working with the damn Ebola virus. Just the other day, I had the bright idea that if I took a benadryl before I went out to mow, then I wouldn't be bothered as badly... I found out why they put those warning labels on the side...you know, the ones that say something to the tune of "Don't operate heavy machinery". Now, I know you're all thinking: "Zack, lawn mowers aren't really considered heavy machinery. Its more like hefty machinery" Trust me, I'm with ya on that one but I had one helluva time finishing the front yard. It was all I could do to will my legs forward. The bad thing was that it didn't really even help that much...
