Am I Starting Him Too Young?

Alright, I'm not sure if I should be mad at Josh or proud of him. I had a doctor's appointment today for the baby. I dropped Josh off at his cousin's house. Appointment went fine. When I got back to pick Josh up, my niece, Jessica, told me she had a story to tell me. Well, Josh's cousin Conner can be a real punk sometimes, especially when it comes to Josh. He will be his best friend when it is convinent for him and then will totally be mean to Josh at other times. Don't get me wrong, I know how six year olds can be. So whatever. I just don't want Josh to be bullied and I want him to stick up for himself. I'm just not sure how he did it was the best way.

So, apparently during this visit, Josh had asked Conner to play with him and Conner refused, quite meanly according to Jessica. So, in true Dillingham style, Josh quickly replied, "You're a dumb ass!" They both were put in time out. I told Josh in front of Jessica that that isn't a word we use. And after Jessica left, I gave him a high five.

I'm Definitely Outnumbered

I'm beginning to feel a little out numbered around here. When Tim and I got married, we were even - 1 boy and 1 girl. Then Josh came along - 2 boys and 1 girl. Not too bad. I can still hold my own. But now we find out that it's another boy. So here we are at 3 boys and 1 girl. It's not looking good for me. I'm going to have to find some ways to make my presence known around here.

They didn't have video capability at the office but here a few of my favorite pics!

He's already showing us his muscles. He is getting lots of exercise inside his little sack. He never stopped moving the whole time!

There's his little head. Like I said before, he never stopped moving so it took a while to get this shot.

Here's the money shot. There was no mistaking that this one is another boy as he was very excited to show us.
P.S. Posting these pics was a little harder than I wanted it to be. It's either because I have no idea what I'm doing or that I'm super sick and don't want to deal with it. I like to think the later.

I'm Getting There

Okay, so I've seen my sisters and others change their blog wall paper numerous times and mine stay the same old "polka dot" from blogspot. So I decided to change my paper. It wasn't that difficult when I followed all the directions. So here we are, my new snowball fight wallpaper. I think my original goal was to have a picture posted but that will have to wait. Next one I promise will be a picture. When I get a chance to to scan it in, I'll put a pic of what, if anything, the little one inside of me is hiding between their legs.

Real or Fake?

Tim and I have always been very open with Josh when it comes to his body and ours. We use correct terms for everything and encourage discussion and questions. I guess that's what we get for the following story.

I'm standing in the kitchen and Josh comes up to gives my bulging belly a kiss. He then looks up and says, "Mom, did you buy your boobs?" "No," I responded. He then comes back with, "Well, then where did you get them?" To which I explained, "That's just how it is. Girls have boobs and boys have a penis." I then shrugged my shoulders. He looked at me, shrugged his shoulders and walked off. He hasn't returned to the subject again so I can only assume that my response was sufficient for a 3-year old. I can't wait to see what questions a 4-year old will come up with.

Blog Envy

Back in the day when you were trying to keep up with the Jones', you only had to worry about the kind of car you were driving, the clothes you were wearing or the stuff in your yard. It's a whole different world we live in now. Now there's a whole new cyber world that we have to worry about. I told my sister about a month ago that I was trying to start a blog. She decided she wanted to start one too. And then another sister started as well. Well poo. Now I have two sisters that scour the web for that cutest blog paper. One sister that updates all the time, and it's funny and worth reading. And the other offered to do my blog for me because I can't even figure out how to post a picture. I'll just keep trying though, not to keep up with the Jones', but to keep up with my sisters. Goal for next blog - post a picture. We'll see how it goes.

When Will The Fluff End?

So, I just found out that I'm pregnant. While yes, I am excited, I'm already starting to hate it. I have said before that I loved being pregnant and it was no problem at all but that is so not the case with this one. I am about a month along and morning sickness is taking on a whole new meaning. And who came up with the term morning sickness anyway. I'm sick all freakin' day long. I'm not throwing up but sometimes I kind of wish I was. All I do is poop all day long. Yep, you read it right, I POOP all day long. It's like I've eaten one too many FiberOne bars. And the thing that really sucks about it is that the poop is so dang fluffy that no weight is lost with it. Now, don't laugh and pretend you haven't done this. You're trying to lose that one more pound so you poop and then get on the scale to see if that number has changed at all. And usually it does, at least a little. Well not so with the fluffy poop. It's all air. Yeah, it sucks. At least with throw up, I might not want to eat for at least part of the day so I might lose a little weight by the end of it. But all I can do now is ask, "When will the fluff end?"

Here I Go!

Well, I decided to start a blog. I just thought it would be a fun way to talk about what's going on if my life but more, what's going on with Josh. I really haven't written down milestones for Josh and I thought I'd better start. We'll see.
