Mom and Tam came over and helped to get Greyson's bed together and put SOME of the clothes in the closet. Then yesterday I took those back off the hangers and all the tags off of the clothes I have gotten for him. I brought them downstairs to sort and wash, HOLY MOLY, there is 3 HUGE piles of clothes I have to wash and put away, and where will they all go? Carlos was like OK, this kid doesn't need anymore clothes. But I haven't bought him anything, it's all from other people. But, anyway his room is coming together. We are doing a safari theme for him and his bed will turn into a toddler bed so we can still use the safari theme then. Hurry up Greyson and get here, Momma can't wait to kiss and hold you. OK, don't really hurry up, I want you to be ready!

Well, we are almost in the new place. Carlos is amazing. I had to call him yesterday to make sure I told him that. He is such a hard worker every day, and then to top it off he just keeps going with the move. He has really made it easy for me with the move since I'm pregnant. I just feel sorry for him because he's outside all day in this miserable heat and doesn't complain a bit about it and then heads to the house to keep working there to get it ready for the next people. The new place is a mess. I am trying my hardest (with no energy)But, I am going to try tonight to get some pictures up so it can look like home. Today I am at the old place waiting for Laclede Gas to do their final inspection. That's a pain in the butt since we just had them inspect a year ago just so we could move in here. So, we have to pay $100.00 for them to look at it again, and then the buyers will have to pay to have them inspect also. OK LACLEDE, YOU SURE KNOW HOW TO MAKE YOUR MONEY!!!! Where we moved to we won't have to use them. I am so glad! So Laclede is here now inspecting, and they have to turn the heat on, IT'S SMOTHERING OUTSIDE and I can feel the heat blowing through the vents, oh man!! YUCK!!!! OK, that's all I have to say right now!! I will have the Internet at the new place Monday, so hopefully I will be able to get on then.

Wowsers, my belly is no longer a belly, it's a huge melon. I guess I should be glad that he's growing good in there. Just a couple more months and this little dude will be out and screaming with dirty diapers!! I can't wait though. I bought him another pair of shoes today. I can't help it they are so cute. Look at them. On to another subject, we are supposed to have loan commitment tomorrow. I just know we won't get it until the end of the day for some reason. We are ready to move. But, I haven't packed because what if their loan doesn't go through. Anyway, enough of being negative. I will post more later! Oh and by the way, I got an email from my sister in law saying that my elbow looks like a boob in my picture!!! IT'S AN ELBOW PEOPLE!

Saturday, June 10th was my baby shower at my sisters house. It was a blast, and turned out beautiful. I got lots of nice things for Greyson. I can't wait to move so I can wash it all and get it hung up. I will have another shower at work soon. Here are some pictures of my shower. Mom made this cake. She even made the babies by hand. Tami made the diaper cake. This was her first one, I'd say job well done!! We had a great time thanks to Tami, Mom, Tess, Ashlee, and Jen. You guys are so sweet to have spent so much time and money on me. I love you all.

Today Carlos took off work to go to my ultrasound for the 1st time. I was so siked about it, him getting to see what I've been seeing this whole time. We walked into the ultrasound room and I told the tech that Carlos hadn't been to one, and to please show him some things. She just kinda looked at me like whatever. So, the lady showed Carlos a big fat nothing really. We got to see Greyson's manly parts about 5 times, and woop that was it. I was like OK, great. So, I got 5 pictures today, all 5 of them are the same thing basically. What I call the "toilet bowl" shot. His butt to the left with his legs on the sides with his manly hood in between. So, after we got home I decided we were gonna go to a place that does 3D ultrasounds. I called up Tami (my sister) and invited her too. We had so much fun. Greyson on the other hand, he was pretty boring. He sat with his body bent in 1/2 the whole time. The tops of his feet were on his head. He is so limber, LOL. So, because he was so comfortable like this and she couldn't get a great shot of his face, I get a FREE 3D ultrasound because she wants me to be happy. We did end up getting to see his sweet little face. Tami and I both had tears in our eyes. He is definately making me impatient having to wait to kiss his little face. So, the toilet bowl picture is something I will always have. And the 3D one will hopefully be a little better on July 6th when we go back.

I don't know what's gotten into me today. But, I'm sure it's because I have all these pictures that I want to share with everyone. This is me at 26 weeks pregnant. This too was taken yesterday after the graduation. I just wanted to share how excited Tami was last night at the afterparty. Tami was officially named the "Baby Kicker Hogger". I can't remember who gave her the name, but it was funny!! She didn't want to stop feeling Greyson moving around in there. I have to admit, it is really fun. Today is Carlos birthday, HAPPY BIRTHDAY CARLOS!! I went in the living room just now and let Greyson and papa have some time together. It was cute, he was kicking Carlos like crazy. SO, there ya have it papa, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, I LOVE YOU!
I have to put this picture up of my Mom. She has been going through a really rough time the past 6 or so months. She was diagnosed with something called Dermatomyacitis. This is attacking her muscles horribly. I guess I should say it was attacking her muscles until she got put on a steroid called Prednisone. Prednisone is a medicine that can cause a lot of swelling, but it takes the inflammation down. And my Mom was one of them that got that side effect. I just wanted to show you all no matter how swollen my Mom gets whether she puts on a hundred pounds, she's always gonna be my beautiful MOM. You gotta quit thinking you're not the same Mom, you might look a little swollen, but you will always be Karen to everyone and Mom to your 4 kids. We love you so much and you are a tough cookie to be fighting this hard time. We are and always will be here for you! Love, REESHA
Elsie!!!! Isn't she cute!! This little, I mean chubby little cutie pie belongs to Sarah and Ronnie!! Sarah was my nieces babysitter growing up and now she has a little one of her own. I couldn't pass up posting about her. When I saw her sitting there I couldn't resist taking this picture. She is so cute, funny, and sooo easy going. I hope Greyson is this easy!!! By the way that's a little ouchie on her chin not a birthmark!
And in this corner we have Tami in the middle (my sister) Chris up top (her hubby) Devin and Ryan on both sides of her (her boys) and little one below is Kylie. This is the family of my sister Tami. One big happy family, and nice looking I might add!!
What a beautiful young lady this is. I just wanted to show you how gorgeous my niece Tavia is. She is 10 yrs old and just as smart as her sister! She loves to read and correct you on what you're doing wrong at all times, LOL. Here are some pictures of here. Eventually, I will have pictures of all of my familia as they are all so important to me. I LOVE YOU TAV!!!
Congratulations Tera, you're all grown up now!!! Yesterday my niece Tera Rachelle graduated high school. This was a very emotional day for us and Tera. As soon as the procession was over other graduates were coming up to say their goodbyes before they left for college. Tera would tear up and then make pregnant Aunt Leasha tear up too. Tera looked beautiful as always in her cap and gown, we all knew she'd make it. She's always been goal oriented, and so darn smart! Tera will be leaving in August to go away to college. That will be one sad day for all of us but mostly Mom and Dad. Tess (Mom) may try to sneak in the car with them. LOL. Tera will have someone very special going with her to college in Kentucky, that special person will be her boyfriend Andy. We all love Andy, he fits in great with our family. Most importantly her Dad, my brother Gary. If he didn't he wouldn't have lasted more than a day, jk. Anyway, we all enjoyed the day yesterday, and went back to Tess and Gary's house to celebrate the new graduate, man did she get a lot of money or what???? DANG GIRL!!! You scored!! Tera I hope and already KNOW you will go far in the world, you wouldn't have it any other way! I love you sweetie, and you mean so much to all of us. Be careful out there in the big world, it can get scary sometimes. But, you've always proven to be a strong women, and I know you will do so well. OK, I'm starting to tear up here, so I have to stop before I ruin my keyboard. WE LOVE YOU TERA SOOOO MUCH! Love Aunt Leasha
