Koch baby #3

Koch baby#1 - Sophia
Koch baby#2- Jude
Koch baby #3-to be named

I am happy to finally be able to talk about our newest addition to the family. The little one should be here around the middle of March. Matt keeps saying that this will be the best birthday ever because I am due March 9th and his birthday is the 11th. When ever I think of my due date I always think about how I told Tanya that I would never have a March baby! The whole Month of March is littered with family birthdays and I didn't want to add to it. At the end of the month we are always exhausted and wonder where all the time went. Well, never say never because I gave birth to our little man Jude on the 20th and now we have another March on the way (give or take) baby could always be early.

Ok back to the pregnant. I am 15weeks so I am in the beginning of my second trimesters. I was super sick up until just a couple of weeks ago. I haven't had any crazy craving but if something comes to mind that sounds good it stays there till I eat it. I am happy to say I have a baby bump that just keeps getting bigger. I always catch Matt out of the corner of my eye with a huge smile on his face at the end of the day when my stomach is the biggest. I don't know why but sometimes it just feel so good to push it out, especially at the end of the day.

Yesterday we had our large ultrasound. Normally it is at 20 weeks but since we have a higher change of what happened to Jude happening again we got ours at 15 weeks. It was such a stressful day. The hospital was running late and of course we got there early. I am not a patience person, I wish I was but it just hasn't happened yet. Now imagine waiting to see if you baby was healthy, sitting in the same room, same seats that we sat in only 6month ago...I was a mess. Matt and I both had had a long hard week and we hopping that that weight would be lifted soon.
After about 4 hours, having to go upstairs then down again, complaining to customer service and crying to the lady at the front desk we finnally got out results...healthy baby!!! My midwife is not on side so no one would give us the information we came for, they told us they would fax it sometime that day to my midwife, well my midwife was going out of town in 15 minutes...I really wanted a glass of wine. Needless to say the wonderful woman at the desk broke a few rules and all was fine, our baby is healthy. I am sad to say that that weigh is still there. I now know it will be there till Koch baby #3 is here safe in my arms, but I am ok with that:)

Wish me Luck!

Tomorrow I am shooting a wedding at Mt. Rainier and I have to say I am a little stressed about it. I am not normally a fan of shooting weddings but I couldn't turn down a good friend. I have my cameras charged and my gear is ready to go but I am still super nervous. I have to leave my house by 6:00am for my 2 hour drive to the Mt. to take pictures of the bride getting ready. We are taking group shots around 10:00 and I hope to be done with the bride and grooms pictures by 1:00 the wedding is at 3:00 with reception to follow. I have no idea what time I will be done at but by the end of the day I will have over 3,000 pictures and another 2 hour drive to get home. It will be a long day, and I am worried that I will not have the energy to finish it. I am also catching a cold and with no cold meds in my future I am worried about how I will feel tomorrow. Oh did I mention that the bride possibly broke her nose yesterday, she said it is just starting to bruise!!! Deep breath, deep breath, deep breath. This is why I stay away from weddings they are not my thing and now I really want a glass of wine but since its on my list with the cold meds I will continue to drink my peach tea.

A No Water Weekend!

Since this is a long weekend, and we have not done any big house projects in a while we decided to try and tackle a project on our ever growing list. We were trying to decided between our bed or starting the kitchen, 2 very important rooms. After a couple of days of trying to make up our minds and at the lat minute we picked the bathroom! I know...crazy right! Matt got home yesterday and started ripping out drywall and plumbing. The washer and dryer are in the dinning room, the sink is outside and the shower only has a back and 1 side. We have been to Home Depot twice already and I have to say our debt card looks sad and tired from all the action its getting. But as I write this I have a smile on my face because I will have a done bathroom sooner than later. I can't wait to have all the walls sealed up, have a shower that looks clean after you clean it, a fan and a few more lights! Matt just wanted in letting me know the water was going off and he is draining and moving the hot water tank so he can remove all the pipes in the wall and start over.
This weekend 6 years ago we moved into our house it is time for a new bathroom!
