Guess who was born today?!?!?!?!?!?!

31 years ago?!?!?

Corey! My husband!

Guess who seems to be in no hurry to arrive, for her due date, Daddy's birthday, or any other special event?

That would be Ruby.....

Needless to say I had no special plans for Corey's birthday today I thought we would be busy with a newborn and just get pizza takeout.  So what did we do? Pizza work with Dad!

 Ben's special gift for Corey.  A 5 second "face touch."  Ben hates to have his face touched...lots of back story....brothers confuse me.
 Father and son
 The family.  Sorry I'm looking rough.  I need more makeup on.
Corey and I have had pre baby hair rebellion.
 Father and daughter...

Individual Ben and Jerry's ice cream cups. Following Mellow Mushroom takeout.
Happy Birthday Corey!
Hopefully my gift won't be too much later in arriving......

The tulips are beautiful!!!!!!
I love being a mom!

Update: Part 5

1. Get all the baby stuff organized in the baby room. DONE
2. Buy stuff needed still on our must have list. DONE even though we didn't get everything I listed last time, we have what we need  so I'm not stressing.
3. Get bags packed for me, baby, and kids. DONE
4. Buy supplies we/I need to have on hand post partum at home. DONE
5. Get the flower bed area in the front yard presentable for post baby visitation. DONE the worst of it.
6. Wash baby supplies (esp the cloth diapers) to have ready when we get home from the hospital. DONE
7. Finish getting house deep cleaned and keep it up! ha! DONE
8. Get sheets for the bed in the baby room! um...there's a quilt thrown over the bed! ha!

Corey being supervised while digging up a huge dead bush that we've been meaning to dig up for a while.

 They found TONS of worms in the dirt.
 Noah actually held one!

 While I was inside deep cleaning the floors.  Corey moved all the furniture and I just had to run the cleaner, so it wasn't that bad.  The floors look so much better now!
So the only thing we haven't gotten done that I would like to get done is to get sheets for the guest bed.  But that really is NOT a necessity for before Ruby comes.  Just soon thereafter in the next few months in case Corey has to travel and I need help.  In other words...we're ready!  Clean house...packed bags.
I even used some birthday money to get new pretty bathroom furnishings for our bathroom so it will be nice and inviting for me upon arriving home! :)
