John will be turning 18 Months this week and I just cannot believe it. I have been thinking about starting a growth chart for him. I mentioned this to Matt a few weeks ago, and he proceeded to surprise me by measuring John in the doorway between our living room and dining room...with a permanent marker...for all the world to see. I tried to remain calm and appreciate what he had done...but he had just marked up our walls in the most visible spot in our home. I simply said, "Thank you, but that wasn't exactly what I was thinking." He didn't really see the problem, but that is okay. That is why I love him. :)
Anyway...more than likely I will travel to Target and pick up a growth chart for John that we can keep for all time, but I did find this cute idea from http://www.missnatalie.com/blog/2008_03_01_
She was selling them on Etsy a few years back and they are all sold out. But what a cute idea. I don't think they would too hard to make...so I might try it...we'll see.
Some of you may know this already, but I have reached the no sleep part of my pregnancy. I feel like it is a little earlier than John but it has arrived. Between me not being able to get comfortable, my mind racing, my body working constantly, and my darling boy wanting to share a bed with his dad and I...sleep does not come easy. I think last night our grand total was 3.5 hours. Needless to say I was exhausted today...and I looked it. I got home and couldn't believe that I had really looked like this all day long. My darling husband could see how tired I was over dinner, so he laid me on the couch, propped my feet up, rubbed them (if you know Matt...he hates feet so this is a big deal), and took our sweet boy to small group with him. I was able to catch some zzz's for 2 hours. When I woke up he had Culver's waiting on me so that I would have a snack while I did my homework and he had put the boy to bed.
Oh...I love my husband.
