This is Nick's game night. I usually read while he plays and then we go to bed. Well, tonight everything went as normal except that since I am so tired all the time I fell asleep reading my book. That normally wouldn't be such a bad thing except that around midnight Hayden woke up and I had to put him back to sleep, which doesn't usually take very long...except for the fact that ater I put him back to bed I opened the door to go out and his wooden name blocks I have on his dresser fell down and woke him up. He was instantly awake asking "What was that?" Going on and on about his dragon or Dranon as Hayden says (which is a humidifier that we bought for his room and sometimes the water in it bubbles and makes funny sounds) making noises and being loud. So he talks to me about the sound for a few more minutes and then quiets back down but it takes longer for him to fall asleep again. By the time he fell asleep it was around 12:30 not too bad but I was totally awake.
By then Nick had stopped playing and was in our room and we talked for a little while and by the time I was ready to lay down again I was TOTALLY awake. I lay there forever thinking..."I'm hungry, but I don't want to eat because I don't want to gain any weight." And "Do I really have to pee again (for like the 3rd time in an hour!) or should I wait until my bladder is exploding?" So I am laying there contemplating if I really want to get up and make something to ease my hunger pains and relieve my poor abused bladder or if I want to try to just go to sleep. Then the baby pushes on my ribs and starts a party in my stomache. Evidently he has invited some friends over without asking my permission....or at least that is what it feels like because there are just too many limbs pushing at me to be just ONE baby! I can't get comfortable because I have so much pressure on my belly I feel like I am going to pop open. I lay there tossing and turning as Nck snores on (I hate him) debating.
Finally I decide to get up make a penut butter and jelly sandwich, pee, because I am so uncomfortable that I know it won't do any good to just lay there. So now I am blogging at 2:15am because I can't sleep and I am hoping this is theraputic and will ease my mind enough so that I can sleep. We'll see I guess.

I don't think I give enough kudos to my husband Nick for all that he does for his family. So, in honor of that I am going to post a sappy post that you can choose to read...or not.
Thank you for all that you do for your little family. You really are the most wonderful husband a girl could ask for.
Thank you for being the kind of dad that our little boy can look up to and want to be like when he grows up.
Thank you for playing with Hayden and teaching him right from wrong.
Thank you for putting up with my pregnancy hormones and my swollen belly and feet, and endless complaints.
Thank you for your kisses and hugs (but more for your kisses ;) ).
Thank you for putting up with me waking you up in middle of the night to talk when you have to be up early the next morning and then not complaining about being tired.
Thank you for helping me keep the house clean because i am too tired to do it.
And most of all thank you for marrying me and being a part of my life. You make every day sunny no matter what the weather outside.
I love you!!!!
