What's up with the obssessive compulsive?

Alex, as we all know, has obssessive compulsive issues. Some of them are challenging and annoying, but others are quite funny. Every Wednesday the trash comes. Alex, without fail, will take the trash cans to to the curb so the garbage man can pick them up. When spring starts, we also have a can for green waste only (grass, weeds, etc.) If there's stuff in there, great, he takes it to the curb. But if it's empty, he HAS to put something in it. So yesterday he puts some working gloves on and tells me he's gonna go pull some weeds. After a while he comes in and asks me if he can mow the lawn. He's so funny. I'm not so sure that he likes mowing the lawn, it's just that he's gotta put something in that trash can so he can take it to the curb. I don't think it ever dawns on him that he doesn't have to put it out that week if it's empty! He can be such a funny guy!

Staileys are just destined to have boys!

Ok, first of all, let me not alarm you, but early Sunday morning I went to the hospital because I was having some heavier bleeding and passing clots. Ok, so everything is fine. We are just watching and waiting to see what is going to happen. The baby is great and the placenta even looked great, although it is a previa. It was hard to tell where the bleeding was coming from. Perhaps it's still from the subchorionic bleed that's still in the top of my uterus. I'll be happy to say that I haven't bled today at all, so I'm really hoping that was the last of the worst of it. But, we'll just have to see. So when we were at the hospital I had another ultrasound done. (Three in over a weeks time!) And we definatley got to see this time what we are having. And yes, we are having a boy! Todd confided in me later that he really wanted another boy, even though I was hoping for a girl. I am excited about it. The boys were excited to hear it was a boy, but the girls weren't too thrilled. Oh well, I'm sure it will grow on them!
