The other night I was bouncing around Facebook. Going from one friend's profile to another looking at pictures and status updates. I don't know how but I found myself looking at Jessica Alba's page. I started looking at her pictures. She's got pics of her and a friend at fashion shows and in Paris along with pictures of her kids.

There was one picture in particular that caught my eye though.

It was one of her husband and her newest daughter Haven was in her jumperoo. In the background you could see her beautifully decorated dining room. And her dining room table is what I focused on. It was covered in piles of clothes, toys, mail, and shopping bags.

Like MY dining room table.

Not only did it make me feel better about my piles of crap everywhere, but it made me like Jessica Alba all the more. She's a normal mom whose house is full of clutter.

Even if she spends weekends in Paris.

Two Weeks

That's how long I have left until I have this baby. And I can hardly wait! I am SO done with being pregnant! I want to be able to bend over again. Jack knows exactly how to take advantage of my physical limitations. If he doesn't want me to pick him up he just lays flat on the floor knowing I can't reach him. Little booger. He also loves to take off running anytime we're outside so that I have to run right after him. He's ridiculously fast and I'm VERY pregnant!

I'm sure the time will fly by. We have Easter next weekend and all the prep there. I have a few more things to do to get his room ready, and I have SO much to finish at work before I go.
As far as work goes, I am very ready to be done there. Things have been so busy lately. I don't know if it's that things are annoying and stressful or if it's just that I'm annoyed and stressed to begin with. Either way, I could use the break. It will be nice to only have to worry about 2 children and not 50!

We still haven't decided on a name for sure yet. We have two that we really like. (I like one more than the other and of course Spiderman likes the other) We've decided to wait and see which one he looks like.

Hopefully with some time off work, I'll be able to post more. We also just bought a new laptop to replace the one that died around Thanksgiving. It should make it a little more convenient to post since it's more portable. If I want to post now I have to go downstairs to use the computer we have there. Most of my living space is upstairs (I have a bilevel) and we spend more time up there and most of Jack's toys are in the living room up there. I can keep an eye on busy little boys if I'm upstairs with him instead of downstairs blogging.

So...that's where I'm at.
