21 weeks

So, I am officially 21 weeks pregnant today. I had an OBGYN appointment this week and all  looks good. This pregnancy seems to be harder than when I was carrying the twins, but our circumstances are different now - for example, when I was carrying the twins I could come home from work & loaf on the couch all evening, or sleep in late each morning. Now I come home from work & have 2 cute toddlers that need my every moment's attention devoted only to their care. Since moving into the house their naps have gotten shorter & their sleep at night hasn't been as smooth as usual. Other than being tired, it's been another great pregnancy!!!

And did I mention how my belly has totally POPPED OUT for this pregnancy? I guess I don't have those strong ab muscles keeping my belly tight!!!

The twins seem to understand that there is a baby in my belly & they like to give baby brother (aka, my belly) lots of kisses. I think that they will both be excellent big brothers and I look forward to meeting the newest little Thompson boy.......
.....if he's anything like the other Thompson boys it'll be love at first sight.

Cowboys & Puppy dogs

Have you seen my cute little trick or treaters??? 
We had a GREAT Halloween!!!

My standard costume....a cat....7 years and going


See this treadmill? For weeks I begged Jason to let me buy this. We bought it 2 months ago & guess how many times I have used it so far???
So, I am committing to the world right now that I will use this treadmill 15 times during the month of December. It only counts if I stay on the treadmill for at least 30 minutes each time.


I think I can, I think I can, I think I can....

I shed a tear at the DMV....

I finally got a Texas driver's license today but I had to surrender my Virginia license. The nice lady took my license and gave me this paper instead.  I nearly broke down crying. Virginia, you'll always have my heart.
(BTW Texas - You need to proofread your forms - or at least use your spell check, duh.)
