October 14th was Seth Birthday. He wanted to go to the "peanut place" aka Texas Road house for his Birthday dinner. We are plannig his big Five year Old party for later in the month after the baby is here, he has been a very patient little boy.
My Mom has been up waiting on baby to come and helping us pack. I really can't beielve my little boy is growing up so fast.
Things Seth loves: He loves school and has already got the pledge of alligence memorized, playing outside with the neighborhood kids, being a big brother(I am so glad that he really loves to help out his sister),playing games, spiderman...
Things Seth hates: Taking a bath, he prefers showers but doesn't really like either, waiting for anything, going to bed, eating veggies, picking up his room.
He told me the day after his birthday when Sydney wanted to watch Deigo that Five year Olds don't watch Deigo anymore.
Seth Lost his first tooth the other night. I can't beileve my little boy is growing u so fast!! When he showed me how loose it was getting I asked him if you wanted me to pull it out he said no but I already had it in my hand, it was barely hanging on. It has been loose for awhile so we have been talking about the toooth fairy when I asked him what the tooth fairy was going to give him he said I think 20 should be good. I remeber getting a Quarter sometime 50 cents. I thought a dollar was sufficent and he was okay with that.
Well, the patience is wearing thin but I am still trying to be in good spirirts. In the time we are preparing for the move. We have sold of few things like our big sectional couch and deep freezer. But the hardest thing to say goodbye to was Tico our sweet puppy.
Okay, I will be a little honest and say that I am grateful to have the responsibility any more but he really was a good dog. As we weighed the options of taking him with us we realized it wasn't practical considering we will be renting. Syd has been so confuesed about it and keeps saying... But it's my Tico! She cried a little this morning when she went to let him out and he wasn't there. Seth was very pratical about the situation and just said... Now he can't chew our shoes. I am also grateful for that. We were able to find him a good home with some friends who have three boys that I am sure will adore him. Fall is upon us and there is even a call for our first snow this weekend. I am so happy to leave the snow behind but it would be cool to be arounfd for the first snow as long as it melts. Hopefully our next post will be to introduce our new little one.
This prenancy has really worn on my nerves. I am sure that it has a lot to do with the surrounding curumstances in our life aka the big move. I am however trying to be patient. I am learning that motherhood really pounds this viture into you. However, I am getting very excited to have a little one around, along with also being nervous about the transition from two to three little ones. Lately my kids have been preping me with having to get up at night. I am not sure why but for the past two weeks we have issuse with one or both of the kids and of course getting up 5 times a night to pee is really restful as it is. Michael's has been awesome and has even gotten up of few times without a request from me. (I am sure this is because I let him go hunting even though I am already at a 3 and could have gone into labor!) I have been struken witht the overwhelming feeling of how blessed I am. With all that has been going on in the econmomy lately I am so grateful that we have the means to live a comfortable life (even if that does mean moving to TN!!) Life has a way of surprising you but is so awesome when you can see the Lord's hand and know that it will all be okay.
