Getting my little man's room ready (slowly but surely). Here's some drapes that I finished up today! With the threat of impending bedrest looming over me again (Braxton Hicks has shown up in a MAJOR way!), I better get as much as I can done now!!!

Well. my crazy pregnant brain posted this to the family blog last night instead of this one. SORRY! I guess that's what I get for trying to maintain 3 blogs!
David planted some grass seed on our big hill the other night, so this evening Bailey decided to help him water it. However, I think she watered herself more! Oh well, she had a great time chasing Daddy with the water hose and trying to "shoot the moon" (and, at times, my camera) with the stream of water.
And what day would be complete without a little drama? She got some water down in her boots and thought it was the end of the world for a few minutes. This was her "Please Mommy, take me inside" plea!

YUMMMM!!! A Mother's Day gift of chocolate covered strawberries that my sweet baby made for me at MOPS today.
Of course, it's hard to explain to a 3 year old that she made these for someone else and can't eat them. So, that's what happened when we got home. She got into the bag and age them all. Luckily I spared one for a photo and then MY tummy! And I guess that's what Mother's Day is all about!

So I was a really bad pregnant lady today. (I mean, I might as well go drink 2 liters of Coke while laying on my back and riding a horse!)
While I was outside using the miter saw to cut about 150 blocks of wood from some 2x4s (bad pregnant activity #1), I noticed a lot of commotion around one of our brick columns. Part of that commotion was a hummingbird fight that seems to happen hourly around our feeder. But then I noticed another larger bird around the column. It kept flying up to the column with worms in its mouth. I decided to investigate (because maybe there was a nest), so I got the tall ladder (bad pregnant activity #2) and climbed up to take a look. Luckily I still had on my safety glasses from using the saw so if an angry mother bird came flying out, at least my eyes would be protected!!!
As I looked, I saw a nest built down into the column. As I looked more carefully, I saw that angry mother bird looking back at me with her "stay away from my babies you peeping tom" eyes. Of course I could not stay away, I made sure that she flew off and then quickly grabbed my point and shoot (because the SLR was too big for such a small space) and this is what I got.
Can't tell how many babies there are, but they're in there!

Bailey checking out and then eating the cookie she (and Mrs. Lindsey) decorated at Ryder's cute Cookies and Milk themed birthday party.
This was shortly before my child pulled her pants down and decided to expose her backside for all to see. Needless to say, we made our exit shortly after that!
