Pregnancy Update and other Random Stuff

I am just about 30 weeks along in my pregnancy. I can't believe that in a little over 2 months I will be having another baby. I am very excited but also very nervous as I have heard that the adjustment to 3 kids can be the hardest. In not so great news I found out yesterday that I failed my one hour glucose test for gestational diabetes. This means that I have to go into tomorrow and do the fasting 3 hour glucose test. This is the first time I have ever failed the one hour test and I am not looking forward to having to do the 3 hour test. I really hope that I pass it and that I don't in fact have Gestational Diabetes. Wish me luck....
On a happier note things here are going well. The kids are doing great and I love watching them interact with each other. On Sunday the Primary Chorister asked if I would go into Nursery and do singing time with the k ids. I had Torilynn and when I got into the Nursery they were still eating their snack. I decided to wait and a little girl came up to Tori and started to play with her. Landon looked right at this little girl and said "Cora you be nice to baby Tori" Cora wasn't doing anything that wasn't nice to Tori but it sure was cute to see Landon so protective of his little sister. Also during singing time Landon sang "Jesus wants Me for a Sunbeam" at the top of his lungs. It was very cute and I hope he keeps it up.
Here are some pictures of the kidos:
Tori is learning how to drink out of a straw sippy cup. I can't believe that she will be a year old next month. The time has really flown!

Yesterday was a pretty nice day so I took the kids to play outside for a little while.
Landon had a great time playing with his ball. He really liked kicking it around the yard. I just had to make sure that he stayed away from the street.

Landon also had fun "raking" the leaves that have been hidden under the snow for the last 4 months.

Tori just enjoyed being outside.
She also really liked crawling around in the grass.
It is a good thing that we got to play outside a little yesterday because today it is raining. I would complain but I'm just happy it isn't snowing :).

Those three hour glucose tests suck. Sorry. I had to have one with Noah. Try to think of it as a vacation! Bring a good book and leave your kids with Jared. That's what I did and it was actually kind of nice to be able to sit and read a book without being interrupted by screaming children every few seconds.

Also, your kids are so stinking cute! That first pic of Landon looks so much like Jared I can't stand it. Tori looks so much like you, I wonder who Ella will look like (...maybe her favorite Aunt Ariane...). And that last pic of Tori...classic! She's so cute!

Good Luck on your 3 hour. I hate doing the 1 hour. I can't stand the drink! Adjusting to 3 isn't all that bad. Once you have 2 whats one more. I guess for me it is always Chaos, so adding another one wasn't to much to adjust to! You will do Great!
