I am working all day today and literally exhausted. Hunter had another restless night. Nathan and I took turns waking up with Hunter, but I feel so tired. Hunter and Nathan might go look for houses today in Katy. We have our house up on the market and now just have to sell it. I am optimistic someone has already called us and we just put the sign up 3 days ago. We just pray that we can sell it fast and find a bigger house for our expanding family. Miss my boys today!!

Today, I finally decided to take Hunter to the doctor. It seems his cough and drainage are getting worse. He has been unable to sleep at night and screaming constantly. Hunter has been sick like this before and it always turns out to be nothing. So I just told myself it was viral again. WRONG... He has a ear infection and is now on antibiotics. He used to love all medicines, until we found out he was anemic and had to take iron everyday. Now he hates all medicine, and knows when we are about to give it to him. He closes his mouth so tight and sticks his tongue out and you have to force it in. I hate being the mean mommy, but I know it is the best thing for him. Despite all this he is still in good spirits. Last night Nate and I had a night in we were dancing to burn baby burn... with Hunter and he was cracking up laughing doing his own little dance. We just love watching him grow into his personality. Nate and I always say "We just can't get enough of our little nugget." I love having a family and being a mom. The only hard part is Hunter is in a clingy mommy stage for about a month. He follows me and never lets me do anything without holding him. WOW 20lbs gets very heavy, especially when I have a belly (baby in utero). My arms are getting a workout though. I can't wait to see what this week brings.

Hunter has been pulling up on everything and is now pushing around his little scooter. He starts laughing and goes so fast with no since of direction it is so fun to watch him. Then the other day on my last day to babysit Reese. Hunter decided to push Reese around the living room on the scooter. Reese just looked at him in aww as Hunter so kindly pushed her and bumped her into the walls. Reese also got a chance to pick out her swim suit for the 2009 season. Nice pick (see picture below). I just love my Reese and I will miss not babysitting her every day.

What an exciting day 3 babies and two adults!! My friend Mary Kathryn and her new baby Caroline went with me and the babies to the galleria. We all unloaded and then we were off. We strolled the galleria and looked around, then it was bottle time for Reese. She was being extremely lazy and would not hold her bottle. I had it propped up on a blanket and the next thing I knew Hunter was reaching over and holding the bottle for Reese. I have never seen anything so cute!!! Then we went to lunch at the Nordstrom's Bistro. MK was so help full because Caroline slept the whole time. We feed the babies bread and some french fries. Then we were off to the Nordstroms bathroom/mother's room. MK breast feed Caroline and I changed the babies diapers and let them crawl around a little. Finally, we were off again to roam the Galleria. It was a great trip all I bought was some hand soap from Bath and Body Works. As we were leaving Hunter got extremely upset and was feeling very warm with a snotty nose. He cried the whole time in the car over to my moms work. Then we went home only to find out he had a temp of 100.5. He had been running a low grade temp. since Tuesday, but I figured it was just viral so I was going to let it run it' s course.

Well we have been having some issues at the Wilson household. First, my refrigerator broke last week. And, no one can come out till Saturday. So we have been without a refrigerator for almost a week. Not fun, and expensive to eat out. Then, yesterday we found out our dog has ring worm.... This is horrible it is highly contagious and we are not sure were she got it. Nathan and I spend all day/night cleaning the house with a bleach solution and steam cleaning the carpets and couches. Then, we had to lock up the dog in the cage and confine her. She was so sad all night barking and crying. We just have to keep her in the cage away from the rest of the house. Until the rash clears up. So we are just looking forward to this week being over. On a good note, we still feel extermely blessed for what we do have and it is my MOM's birthday today. We are going over to our old neighbors house to celebrate when I am done with work. HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM!!! The big 54. She loves getting older so I know she will not mind me posting her age:)) And she is one hot nana!!

I have been working this weekend and it's Daddy Hunter time. Hunter has so much fun with his Daddy they play ball and Hunter is so fast at crawling and can pull up on anything. He is quite the handful. Yesterday, Nathan called me so excited and said Hunter was practicing walking when he stood up on his own for 10 sec. I know it does not sound like much, but for proud parents it is awesome. Hunter also got a new pair of shoes we went to Nordstroms and he got his little feet measured. Except they were not little he now wears a size 5. My mom bought him some walking shoes. Because she said the only way he will learn is to have a nice pair of shoes. It was so funny to see him walk/run in them at the store. He was lifting his legs up so high. We were cracking up. The best part about my weekend is going home to see my little man. He gets so excited and immediately comes straight toward me. Then he starts screaming and squealing in delight and has a death grip on me. I know we share a special bond and it melts my heart to see him so over joyed. It is the best feeling in the world.

14 weeks prego... I am growing and little Wilson is growing!!! I have not gained any weight yet, which is good because I gained 50lbs with Hunter. So my goal is to not gain 50lbs again. I will find out the sex of the baby in 4 weeks. We will be having another sex finding out party. When I was prego with Hunter we had the doctor place the ultrasound results in an envelope, then we opened it with all our friends and family around. It was so much fun. I have been very busy babysitting and working so it is hard to focus on the pregnancy. I sometimes forget I am pregnant until I look in the mirror. I am definitely showing much earlier this pregnancy. I am guessing it is a girl because I have not been nearly as sick. We will see!!
