Anyways, I was watching the show last night and it was a FAQ where Jon and Kate answer viewers questions. I find it hilarious the things people comment on about their lives!
They are HEROES in my eyes! Matt tells me he gets tired just watching the show. They have twin daughters and then sextuplets!! Three girls and three boys. All the kids are VERY well behaved for the situation, and the parents are a CRACK up!
This show helps me to remember when I have a bad day with Hailey that at least I only have ONE Hailey, and not 6 or 8.... Kate you are my personal Hero and Jon you rock!!
Check it out if you have not yet! The best half hour of your day for sure! If there is a marathon... you are in for a HECK of a time! ~

Lucky you, here is a PREGO picture of me. I have been trying to not post pictures of me on here just because, but what the heck! Here is the Bird Family ready to cheer on the Mighty Nighthawks!!
She did want to be out on the field with the other Cheerleaders, but once Daddy put her on the cheer box she was a little worried that we were going to leave her there.... gotta love it! ~ What a DRAMA Queen!
We are a little sad to say the team did not win... but after talking to Preston and learning that half the kids don't come to practice... what would YOU expect! It is still a FAVORTIE thing for me to do! I love having a little brother to cheer on at the games!!And just so you know, my mom is currently working on the Fresno State Cheer outfit that Matt wanted for Hailey! YEAH! GO FRESNO and GO NATOMAS!!

Matt and I put some finishing touches on the boat while we waited for our friends to come. We were VERY lucky that Grandma Bird offered to keep Hailey for us while we were gone. We got out on the water and everyone enjoyed some time out on the water. ( with the exception of myself and Ryder) I think I was too tired from the day before to try.
We ate at Bob's for lunch. For those of you who do not know... Bob's is on the water off the Delta. We enjoy going there quite often!! After a fantastic lunch we were going to do some tubing... OH YEAH! but for some reason our gas meter was not reading much gas left, so we headed in! We were not sure how much gas was in there because we had been out before and it had been fixed and such.... so we wanted to be SAFE rather than sorry!!
I have a WONDERFUL sun burn to show for the day... which i might add will turn into a GREAT tan for my poor white little self!! Sorry no pictures... we left the camera at home! But I think it was a GREAT TIME HAD BY ALL! ~

But NOW that I am prego again.... the BAD memories RUSH back into me! First my POOR heart! The heartburn I get is HORRIBLE! Last night at about 10, I looked for my Tums, and instead of chewing the tablet like the bottle told me to do, I treat it like a Prenatal Pill, and I try to swallow it. Now do I not only have heartburn... I have a Tums tablet stuck in my throat and I can not get is down to save my life. Luckily Uncle Chris made chocolate cookies so I was able to get those down my throat and force the tablet down.
I am also now at the NO sleep stage. I can sleep, but it is REAL hard to get there. It is uncomfortable to sleep on my tummy, which is what i usually do. So I opt to sleep on my side... but HAVE to have a pillow between my legs. Hubby gets upset because I move so much to get comfy.
Now add in all the worries and such that we pregnant women have before having a baby, and then add to that the fact that I do not have a place to call MY home. I am living with family, TRYING to remain normal when there are times I just want to sit in my room and cry. I want to start my nesting faze (yeah I nest the WHOLE pregnancy) and I have no place to nest. Half the baby stuff we will need is in storage, and I CRINGE about getting that out in time.
There are times I can be SUCH a worry Wiggle, and today is that time! ~
THANK YOU FOR LETTING ME VENT! I feel better now.....

So, it is a HOT day in Stockton, and we are patiently (not all are patient) waiting for the game before Rylie's to end.... an HOUR later... (come on... is there any organization here...) the girls get to the field. Rylie's team name is the Shamrockers!! HOW CUTE IS THAT?? They are in ALL green and look adorable! The team they are playing it the GlowBugs, they have electric green shirts.... very cute. While both teams are running the pre-game drills we realize that these GlowBugs are LEGIT and a few of the girls are hardcore scorers. Chris and I laugh as we compare the two teams shooting practice to the goal. Rylie is off going to the bathroom and the other girls look to be picking flowers and have NO idea what they are in for!
The game starts and there is a goal scored by the Shamrockers! YOU GO GIRLS! The only problem is that one of the girls on the GlowBugs is now crying because she took the ball the wrong way and that is how our team scored... this little girl runs off to her mommy, and is crying because she feels it is all her fault. Poor thing.... now the tubby girl (she was QUITE tubby if you know what I mean, and I hope she is there for the PHYSICAL FITNESS part to soccer....) on the other team has fallen 3 times and is having a hard time playing.... off she runs to mommy and daddy.... poor tubby girl!
Now the first 10 min. half ends and there is a break. We have ANXIOUSLY waiting for Rylie to join the game.... I love Erin's comment at the start of the game ...." What my kid's not first string.... what is this....." we laugh at her sarcastic remark. The game starts again after a 5 min. break. (could this be WHY we are an HOUR late starting our game) To our GREAT pleasure Rylie is IN the game! She runs around a little and is not able to get the ball at all..... off she runs to mommy crying that she was not able to touch the ball. Another lesson to be learned.... sharing is NOT part of soccer for 3-4 year olds! Maybe if she sticks this whole soccer thing out until High School they will learn by then that it is a team sport, but for now it is just bunch ball and no passing to other players on your team. Rylie finally gets back into the game after MUCH coaching from all the family who is there to see her play, and she kicks the ball a few times... but this time is crying for mom again because she did not kick it in the net.... poor baby!
After all this, it is quite comical to see these poor little girls hopes and dreams of what they had planned their first soccer game to be like crying in parents laps. I look around and there are 4 parents trying their best to console these poor little souls. I think this is a GOOD lesson learned today. Soccer is NOT easy, not everyone gets to play, or kick the ball, and very few people get to kick the ball in the net. (run-on sentence I know)
I hope the future games are not like this game, and I look forward to cheering on the Shamrockers!! Hopefully the first game has opened eyes and there will not be as many tears as the season presses on. Needless to say it was a good time had by all!
Cousin Hailey and Uncle Matt are Happy to be at the game! ~

This is glassy water. I have to admit I have seen more calm water than this, but in Sept. on the Delta, this is pretty nice.... needless to say we ALL took advantage of the water yesterday!! There were not any boats around us until we started going down the channel, we passed 2 other Wakeboarding boats the whole time out, and that never happens. There is usually like 10!!! This is why you go out on the week day nights! ~
Matt was the first to ride, and I know the picture is not a good one of him... but I was trying to show how nice the water around us was. Matt was so stoked to be out in these conditions ~
Oh yeah, this is me! No one ever said Pregnant Women have to sit out on wakeboarding! Hey, if the weather and water is good; I'm down for a ride! So this is me and Landon out on the water. 5 months pregnant and still having a blast! Can you tell I am prego???
Sometimes we just like to anchor and swim around the boat. Hailey is not usually fond of being in open water, but after we got her used to the water temp she went to Grandpa and was out having fun with everyone else! This is Grandma Bird, Matt, Grandpa Bird and Little Hailey. Mommy was in the boat taking these pictures. (You can only pull yourself back up onto a boat so many times when you are pregnant.... its a WORKOUT I tell you!)
And this is a classic! Hailey LOVES to drive the boat, and Grandpa is so gracious to let her. We are so lucky to be staying in Stockton with family when we can jump out on the Delta any day we please! We look forward to getting our boat fixed so we can get in some good quality time this summer on it! We are "working out the kinks" as Matt puts it. It was such a perfect day for getting out on the water! Glad we did! ~

Lucky girl got to lick the whisk after we were done. Actually she let me know that she was going to lick it because whenever her auntie Sharon would make something sweet she always let Hailey lick the "spoon"! It was a good day! ~

1 ~ I can not leave the house if it is a mess. Even for like grocery shopping! It drives Matt NUTS, but who wants to come home to a dirty house? I even have to have the clothes folded if there are some in the dryer..... random. I think I have a little case of OCD.....
2 ~ I HAVE to have a Bow or Clip or something in Hailey's hair if we are going somewhere or if someone is coming over for a visit. I bought a BUNCH of bows, and have only lost a few! YEAH for me! I just like my little girl to LOOK like a little girl! ~
3 ~ I do not like to go to bed early. In fact it KILLS me if I have to be in bed before like 9. I am a night owl, and my poor husband is not. He has to commute for a hour to work, so he is in bed early. I like to stay up late and watch TLC.
4 ~ I have to have something sweet for breakfast. If I make like eggs or something, I have to have toast with jam or something like that. I usually make pancakes or french toast for breakfast lately. I think it might have more to do with being pregnant, but i noticed that I have a sweet tooth in the morning.
5 ~ I do not do socks..... I wear sandals for about 90% of the year and high heals for about 7%, so the remaining 3% of the year I wear shoes. I hate how socks feel, and I think they suffocate my feet. I used to run, but being prego I just go for power walks with my nice reef sandals. I even ride my bike in sandals! I also do not like to touch Matt's socks after they are washed... something about socks FREAKS me out! But I don't have a problem with touching Hailey's socks......
6 ~ I balance my checkbook at the counter as I purchase items. I balance it in the car as well.... I have NEVER had a problem with knowing what I have avaliable in my account, or any overdraft problems! I guess this comes from my Wells Fargo Years and being able to see my account ANY SECOND OF THE DAY at work. Now that I am not out as much, I check my account about every 3-4 days online just to make sure things add up. Then when my statement comes I don't have to check it because I have taken that time already!
Ok, kinda random Quirks.... right???
Now I am going to tag a few people I think might check my blog......
Sara Marie, Nicole McGhie, Stacy Rogers, and Julianna Iverson ~
HAPPY BLOGGING! ~
