Waiting for baby

My parents got here on Tuesday and we're all just sitting around waiting for the baby! We all thought it would be born by now, but it's just not ready. 
The kids, honestly, have been a handful this week. We don't know why, but they've really been acting up a lot, which is hard! Hopefully it will let up soon.
I don't know if I've said this, but Reid is totally day time potty trained, even at nap. And he has been for a while. And Ruby got her first back molar coming in about two weeks ago. I had no idea it was even on its way! She was feeling way back there with her finger one day and said she has a new tooth! No other loose ones at this point yet though.
Ruby is getting soooo good at reading! It's been about a month since she's really started going, but she reads everything now. At school, they send books home with her regularly to read to us. She's on the level 2 books now, because the lower ones were too easy. :) We're so proud of her! She rar…

40 weeks! We made it to our due date!

Due date today! I honestly didn't think I would make it to today. Reid being born a few days early threw me off, and it has been kind of hard waiting. But the baby will come when it's ready. I'm trying to enjoy my last few days of being pregnant (probably ever).
Everything looked good at the midwife on Monday. The baby was in a good position for the minute, although it moves around so much. I'm a little worried that it's posterior again, but I think we can get it to turn around in labor if it's not in the optimal position.
We finally decided on a boy name I think. Which feels nice to be all the way ready. And my parents got here on Tuesday. It almost feels like everyone's sitting around staring at my belly though. Haha It is a nice distraction for the kids, and a huge help for me. I've been really tired and uncomfortable. Sleep has been horrible, I lay awake in the night for no apparent reason, which is miserable! And then I'm tired all day and nee…

Easter! And Ruby's Kinder orientation

We are all ready to meet the baby! We've been going on lots of walks, which has been fun. Easter was really great this week, we celebrated just with us, then with the Pullen family.
Some funny kid sayings lately: Reid says "Yesteday" all the time, meaning any time before right now. Such as "Yesteday we saw a fwont loadew at Winco." His obsession with construction machines and tractors is comical. Ruby has been calling Reid "Reid Reid."  Belly!!  Reid and I saw lots of trash trucks on our walk the other day. The guy made the big claw arm thing wave at us.  Me and my boy! Enjoying some of our last little time with just the two of us.  Cutting up apples for Andy.  We went to OMSI on Friday to play for a little bit and eat dinner.  Reid loved the crane! Dinner time!    Silly kid. Then we headed to our church for the Good Friday service.  On Saturday we went to Village Baptist for their Easter egg hunt. It was fun!  They did each age group in phases. Reid…
