So Brensyn woke up at 4:30 Friday morning, and started watching infomercials. He came in and told me we should buy a pilates chair, and that it makes you skinny. He went back to watching for a while, and went to show Jaran the picture that he drew. It started out with a lady before pilates and one after. Then he started writing down the number, but it went too fast. Hilarious. But I would like to figure out how to keep him asleep... he woke up at five this morning. Ugh!
Wow... I am a horrible blogger. I was really good at it once upon a time. Maybe now that I will have something to be writing about constantly, I will start it up again! As most of your know, well those of you who have facebook, so not Shayla;), Jaran and I are expecting baby number four! I'll be 15 weeks along on Saturday, and I'm so excited to be out of the first trimester! I don't know how women have more than one baby if they get morning sickness. I was lucky to be pretty healthy with the first three. I had a smidge of sickness with Ansleigh, but boy, this baby has taken a toll on mommy dearest. And why do they call it morning sickness? Because that's the ONLY time I WASN'T sick! It was super exciting for the kids to find out. I remember when we told them they were all excited... about five minutes later McKie says, "So that means that you're pregnant, right?" Ha ha ha. I guess I just assumed they knew, but great of him to figure it out on his own. All three of them want a girl, so I hope they get their wish, or I'm afraid that they'll be devastated! I don't really care what we have, as long as it's healthy. Jaran says that if we have a boy, we'll have to have another one so we can have a sister for Ansleigh. UGH! I don't know if I can do this again! Trying to do full-time school, mommy to three kids, wife to one, and all the other stuff that life throws you has been super hard. Harder than I remember... probably cause I usually felt fine before. I'm not sure why this one has been harder. Perhaps because I am much older than I was the first three times. I had McKie at 21, Brensyn at 22 and Ansleigh at 24... I will have this baby at 29... that's the only difference I can figure... or perhaps the stress;)
But I am super excited. I'm finally starting to feel half-way decent, and I'm starting to get a tiny bit of energy back. Jaran has been great, but I think taking care of the kids at night is starting to wear on him. I have been actually able to fix dinner lately, and I think that makes us both feel better.
Well, that's all for now. If anyone even reads my blog anymore, thanks for stopping by! Take Care!
The Baker Gang, the fantastic five, whatever you want to call us! Well, not whatever, only if it's nice! We are headed by Jaran, who will turn 31 on the 20th of September, I-Shannon- am 26, McKie is 5, Brensyn is 3 1/2 and Ansleigh just turned two in August. We are currently residing in Byron, and Jaran is busy building houses! We are renting our house in Three Forks, and hope that the renters will buy it at the end of two years!
