I'm not making any promises of a return to the blog, I know so many of you have been anxiously waiting for a post. But here is a post today.
I'm 32 weeks and 4 days pregnant with baby #4, who will be a GIRL. We are very excited, and have no clue what we'll name her. Jackson says he wants the baby to hurry and fall out so that he can go have an adventure at Grandma and Grandpa McKinnon's house. Harper just loves to slap my tummy and say "Hi, baby!" And Jasper has given us a few name ideas. He is concerned that this new baby won't know him very well by the time he turns 18 and goes on a mission. He'll be 14 almost 15 years older than her. I told him he just needs to make the 4 years he does have with her really special and then make an effort after he comes home.
Poor Harper got the shaft on this blog compared to Jackson, but I've turned to instagram for all my scrapbook/life documenting/memory needs. You can find me there as michellelbenn.
So, what is new?
Jackson is on his first sports team playing Soccer. His team is called the Dragons, and he is definitely not a natural. He spends most of his time fake falling and shooting imaginary spider-man spiderwebs out of his fingers, while the soccer ball flies right past him.
Harper says a lot of words and loves to push kids smaller than her. Then she says "poops" for "woops" as if it was an accident and makes cute smile. She loves to watch Bubble Guppies, and demands it every morning. "mama, BUPPIES!" she says.
Jasper is going early to the high school every morning to lift weights and get in shape for football this fall. 9th grade is in high school for the first year this year, and he's excited. So David is the lucky guy who gets to drive him to the high school at 5:15 every morning. FUN! He's also still playing basketball. A lady on the opposing team asked me which kid was mine the other day. I said "#21". She said, "you mean that man boy who shaves?" "yes, that's him." :)
What else... David has been traveling for work a lot. Right now he's on day #1 of an 11 day trip to Vegas then LA. I hate to admit that I'm one of those wives who absolutely hates it when he's gone. I do love freely watching shows on TV that he would mock me for, but that's about it.
This pregnancy is kicking my butt, mostly hormonally. I think I'll survive though, so yeah!
That's all for now, maybe more later. :)
