Toddler Beds Already?

The boys are only 16 months and it's looking like it might be time for one of them to go to a toddler bed already.  Let me explain.  Brody (the rebel) is our little climber.  He has been climbing on the couches at home, chairs at daycare (two falls on his head already), dog gates, you name it he wants to climb it.  About a month ago my mom at kept them at home one day. She had Brody in his crib while she was changing Beckham.  She said she turned around and saw Brody sitting on top of his changing table. That was the first and only incident we had had of him climbing out of his crib.  At that point I hadn't been too concerned because at night he lays down and goes straight to sleep and when he wakes up he usually wakes up crying/screaming.  Plus we have a video monitor to be able to watch him.  Well this past Saturday night Robert and I had gone to a football game.  When we got home the boys had been sound asleep for a couple of hours.  We visited with his sisters for a while, who had come over to watch the boys, and when they left I went in to check on the boys.  This is where I found Brody.

Sound asleep.  I'm still confused at how he just stopped at this point.  My reaction went from scared to immediately couldn't stop laughing.  Now I'm backed to a little scared.  It scares me that he did this so quietly.  What if he does this in the middle of the night and just rolls off?  I think our safer bet is to switch to the toddler bed, but even that scares me.  Then he has free reign of his bedroom if he wakes up.  Ah the decisions of parenting.

Belly Shots

By special request from a friend whom I miss and no longer get updates on (I will not mention names ;)), here is a belly pic.  I have only taken 2 total this entire pregnancy so you all are lucky I just took one last week. 

This is with one child


And this is with two children

This pregnancy has definitely been a lot different and I can now see how people say they love being pregnant.  I have felt great for the most part and have even managed to make it to the gym most days.  I have recently had to stop because I have officially hit the tired/can't move your body stage.   I run out of breath talking.  This part of pregnancy always cracks me up and even more so this time around.  I do literally forget I'm pregnant some days and when I can't breath I'm like wow I'm out of shape then I realize it's because there is a human inside me.  I love feeling his kicks.  They are so different from the boys.  I can feel his entire body move. With the boys it was just one little body part jab because they didn't have much room to roam free.  I am so excited for the day he is born and to see all three brothers together for the first time.  My life is a huge blessing and I wouldn't trade any of it.

Our Little Cutie

We had our 3D done this weekend.  It's about the only thing that I have managed to do this pregnancy.  I do only have about 11 weeks left so it's time for us to get on the ball.  I can't believe how fast this pregnancy is going.  He was pretty much just as stubborn as his brothers and didn't give us a full frontal shot, but we got some good ones.  So far from what I can tell he is a good mixture of both of them.  He looks like he has Brody's chubby cheeks, but some other features of Beckhams.  What do y'all think? 

Here is Bray

Here is Beckham

Here is Brody
I must say, we make some pretty cute children.  This ultrasound got me super excited to meet him.  I'm assuming it's just because we hadn't seen him in so long.  I start my biweekly appointments this week.  I still really can't believe this is happening.  I am still silently freaking out about how we are going to handle it, but at the same time I am so excited to add more love to our family.
