This week seems to be going much more smoothly for the Baker's!! I think the stomach bug has left the building which is s HUGE relief. Brad is super swamped with homework this semester...he is taking college algebra. YUCK!! I think that he understands it but when you take a math class online it is a MAJOR hassle and his teacher is major twirp about posting things. He likes to try to plan his homework & get it done on specific nights (for my sake:) & she is posting things sporadically just to make sure that people like him don't do that. I have come to the conclusion that there ARE people that just insist on being complicated. I just can't understand why. I am still having trouble with this pregnancy...everyday seems to bring more challenges with coping. It is nothing serious thankfully, I have just been overdoing & have been told to stop lifting as much as I can. I am just not sure how to not overdo because there is TOO much to be done. I have to work & I have to keep up with a three year old...even if I cut out everything else (which isn't possible:) then that is enough to keep me worn out. I know that this too shall pass. God handed this baby to us so he will provide a way to keep us both healthy (& sane:) until the end. What will be hard is not lifting Bishop...I lOVE, love, LOVE to cuddle with him....he'll just have to come to me I guess!!

Our lives SEEM so busy these days!! A wedding in the works, a college graduation:), at least 6 of my friends are pregnant not including me so LOTS of baby showers, preparing for our new little one, work, school...somedays I wonder how we do it!! And our lives aren't nearly as crazy as some I know.

*** I have to inform everyone that as I type my son is running around in underwear (YEA!) & a Dora backpack. I have to remember that the personality that gets him in trouble at school is the same one that makes him a one of a kind. I am sure that someday all the things that are bothersome now will make him very successful!!!***

The pictures are of my ever growing belly...yippee. I am getting bigger FAST....I feel like my face is already getting fat so I better get a good head shot in soon because as it swells...NO MORE PICTURES!!!! I think the last one before Bishop was born was taken mid-September. I control the camera in this family so that means I can DELETE me if I want to:)! Okay...boring blog is now ending...:)

Nope...just grandma sent me this funny & it actually made me laugh out loud so...

1. Get 24 boxes of condoms and randomly put them in peoples carts when they aren't looking:)!
2. Go to the service desk and ask to put a bag of M&M's on layaway
3. Look right into the security camera; use it as a mirror, and pick your nose:)!
4. Hide in a clothing rack and when people browse through, say, "PICK ME!"
5. Go into a fitting room & shut the door and wait a while; and then yell, very loudly, "There is NO toilet paper in there!!"
*Kerri, I have the entire list if Brent here's that there are lots of strange things happening in stores:)!!
