Look at this!

So I found a Buzz Lightyear costume at a consignment store and Jackson has been in heaven ever since. Originally Jackson said he wanted to be Woody (from Toy Story) for Halloween, but has since decided that Buzz was cooler. We had planned on Cooper being Buzz since that's all he's talked about for the last 2 weeks, and decided that if I could find a decent priced Buzz outfit for him too, then we'd have two little Buzz Lightyears. I forgot to get a picture yesterday, but I found a buzz outfit for Cooper, so I now have two very energetic Buzz Lightyears running around my house. They both try and shoot they're lazers out of their arms and fly and mimic Buzz in everyway possible from the movie. Well it's cute, and I'm so glad to have that worry off my mind. I knew I had to get them Halloween costumes before the baby came or they might not be trick or treating this year. Now I just hope that Jonathan's not on call Halloween night so he can take them out. :-)

Jonathan goes off Oral Surgery Clinic on Sunday and starts his rotation in Internal Medicine. The other first year resident with Jonathan is just getting off Internal Medicine, and said that it should be a little easier on him as far as time. We sure hope so, that would be great with a baby on the way. Right now Jonathan's still trying to recover from a very long weekend. In three days he slept about 8hrs and 15 min. Two of the nights were about 4 hrs each and one of the nights was just the 15 min. (They had a surgery that went until almost 2 am, car accident, and then he was also on call that night and a kid came in with a busted open forehead) so 15min sitting at the computer in the office was all he got that night. He came home Tuesday night (first we'd seen of him since Sunday night) and was having a hard time staying awake during dinner. He helped me out by giving the kids a bath, but couldn't stay awake to read them a story, so I took over. Then he was off it bed. For the first time I think since we've been here, he got 9 hours of sleep!

I'm still keeping busy with baby preparations and everyday life. Preschool, cleaning, laundry, etc. The list of things to get done is getting smaller, but it's been a chore since I'm the only one able to work on it. To add to it all now, the boys and I are sick. We've all got a nasty cough and headaches. I don't know if Jackson's ever had a headache before because when he first started getting sick I asked him if he was ok, and if there was something wrong. He almost started crying and said 'my head hurts really bad because I ate too much ice cream.' This was at 9 in the morning, but an ice cream headache was the only way he knew how to explain what hurt. It was cute. It's looking like he'll be missing his school field trip to the apple orchard tomorrow. He still sounds really bad.

Other then that life here is good. The trees get prettier and prettier every time I go out to do errands. Poor Jonathan's missing it all going in at 6am coming home at 7pm. This Saturday is his first Saturday off in well over a month. Hopefully we'll be able to get out and drive around to see the colors. Just so you all know, the picture of me was taken last night. Thought you'd all like to see what a sick 37 1/2 wk preganant woman with a 9 lb baby looks like. You should see the looks I get from people when I'm shopping or even at church. It's the whole 'that poor woman' look. I think it's pretty funny. It's getting much harder to sleep lately and I don't have much of an appetite atleast during the day. At night I'm always starving. Maybe it's the heat we've had lately or the fact that there's just not much room in there for food. Oh well the joys of pregnancy.

Love you all

The pics of the boys are adorable! I don't know if I should show Mindy the pic of you Heidi...she's already not looking forward to the "Gray babies" as it is; it might drive her to get her tubes tied.

Wow! Are you sure you aren't having twins?
