However, we did figure out how to get him to sleep longer. :)

With every baby, I have cooked "freezer food" to give me a break from cooking once the baby comes. Here are the things I have made so far to fill our hungry freezer. :)
Turkey Barbeque - I found a really good recipe for this from tasteofhome.com
Macaroni and Cheese
Ham, Cheese, and Broccoli casserole
Carrot Cake - I had some oooolllldddd carrots that needed to be used up. :)
I have some other things on my list as well. We'll see if I get to these:
Haluske (Slovak cabbage and noodles, with bacon of course)
Dijon Salmon (Salmon is Graeme's fav. food)
Twice Baked Potatoes
Bread, cornbread, etc.
Crunchies (Scottish cookie recipe from Graeme's grandma)
Waffles or pancakes
Raisin Bran muffins
The above is more of a wish list and I'm sure I won't do all of them and will switch things around. What I have been doing is cooking extra of what we are having for dinner and planning it that way, which is easy. I am always so glad I go to the trouble of this before the baby is born when I am postpartum and tired.

"Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble. Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:" 1 Peter 5:5,6
This isn't the best video of Noah saying this verse, but I thought I would share. I never thought the kids would be able to memorize these verses as they are long and kind of confusing for little kids, but they did it. Noah, of course, being the first to surprise me with his memorization genius....he gets it from PopPop!

Getting a hug from the queen herself...
As soon as you could finally get up close and personal with your cake, you took off one of the presents and shoved it in your mouth...atta hungry boy!
Opening presents with Auntie and company
So Noah moved into the boy room with Elijah. He resides on the bottom bunk or so we thought. We have been having a terrible time with him waking up too early in the morning. He would be up around seven and be completely miserable all day because he was tired. We couldn't figure out why he was waking up so early. Finally, Saturday night as Graeme and I were talking in bed we realized that we have never checked on him to see where he is actually sleeping or if he is staying covered up, etc. after we leave the room. So, Detective Dad went in to investigate. Much to his surprise he found a little ball on the middle of the floor, asleep on top of his geen ganket. Ever since Saturday night we have found him either on the floor in the fetal position, backwards in his bed, or not under the blankets...B-I-N-G-O! Now he is sleeping much better, and longer, and he's not grumpy...and neither is Mommy. :)

Yesterday he told me he wanted a "tractor for Christmint".
I love that boy, but I fear his allegiance has officially switched to Daddy-o, not that that's not where it's always been. My kids are huge Daddy fans! Ever since he moved into the "bottom gunk (bunk)" he doesn't want me to rock him before his naps anymore. I used to love to rock him and enjoy him sleeping against me, but no more, he's too big and mature for that anymore...boo! I'm glad I get another one to cuddle soon. :)

I've tried to post a time or two, but for some reason wasn't able to get on my blog or I was able, but then my computer froze...so I gave up for a while.
The last trimester is my time to focus inward. I'm tired and I mostly just want to be at home resting or nesting. It's also coooolllld this time around! Both boys were born just as winter was beginning so it wasn't so miserable to pack up kids and go out. I cannot wait for spring!
In my deranged state, I still have some more goals before the baby is born. One fo them is cooking "for my freezer". We have a big freezer in the garage and I like to cook ahead and freeze meals so I don't have to cook when the baby is born. So far I have made a Mac'n'cheese/ham casserole or two and turkey barbeque. My freezer thanked me for starting to fill her up, she was hungry.
Things are slowing down for Graeme at work, and our house projects are virtually done. Now it's just cooking, preparing for the baby, which I haven't done much of yet, his closet is organized though. Actually, everyone's closets are organized...crazy woman.
Hoorah for the last few weeks of winter, bring on Spring!
