Life goes on

I don't particularly have one specific thing I want to say in this post, just a bunch of stuff running through my brain!
  • Have I ever told you guys I am a cryer? Well, I am. I'm not a sobby, why oh why me cryer, I'm an everything touches my heart mushy girl cryer. That is my normal state of being. When I am pregnant, this is magnified. My friend Carrie and I took our girls to the zoo the other day and during the dolphin show I was so overwhelmed with love for the peanut thinking how full my life is because I get to teach her about things like dolphins, that I just started crying. Yep, apparently even dolphins can make me cry these days.
  • Everyone keeps telling me they can't believe how vocal the peanut just got over the past few weeks. She's actually always been vocal, she's just coming out of her shell more and making more sentences all of a sudden. The peanut has been saying some of the funniest things lately. Like when I go to the bathroom and she'll say, "Mommy go potty?" I'll say, "Yes." She'll say, in her very excited way while clapping her hands, "Good job Mommy!! Daddy, Momma go potty!!" Or when Michael takes a shower, "Daddy shower?" My response? "Yes, Daddy is in the shower." Her response, "Daddy stinky." That one kills me!! Or her sweet response when I tell her I'm not feeling so good, "Mommy sick?" I'll respond, "Yes, mommy is sick." She'll give me a hug and say, "Mommy better." I mean come on, who is not going to find these things just adorable?
  • Speaking of the potty, we are making progress. As long as there are no pants, she goes on the potty each and everytime. If there's a diaper, not so much. So, she knows the score. Smart girl. And, there is a lot of nudey butt in this house lately. LOL
  • This pregnancy has been harder than I remember the first being on me. I worked a 40 hour week the first time, now I just feel like death all of the time. It has been exceedingly hard for me to get out of bed everyday. If I could just stay there I would. I feel bad for the peanut as she really wants to get out and do things but I just don't have the energy to move. The poor kid is going to turn into a Backyardigan if I let her watch anymore TV! Also, the nausea is definitely worse than with her. At least I got relief when I ate something the first pregnancy, not this time. I'm just always feeling like I'm going to throw up. It's good times. And don't mention food around me because the names of any food make me want to yak. Yeah, grocery shopping with me right now is a real walk in the park. Hopefully it will be over week 12 like it was with the peanut.
  • Today was the last day of MOPS. I forced mysef to go today, and I'm glad I did. It has been a really great experience and I'm glad I got to say good-bye for the summer. I don't go to that church so I don't see them on Sundays! I'm on the steering committee so I will see some of the girls for planning this summer but we are changing our format and a lot of the team won't be back next year so it's nice to say good-bye. Tonight is a MOPS night in but I just don't have the energy to go.

Now that you've gotten the Amy update, what's going on with you all?

I love your new design and enjoyed your update. I'm pretty exhausted right now, but God reminded me of His unfailing love today and that is precious.

Hoping the sickness eases up some. I had it for about 12 weeks all 3 times. With Zak I worked in a grocery store and I thought I was going to toss my cookies everyday. lol

Hey there, I didn't know you were moving websites. What's the deal?

Don't even bother going to my blogger website. I do have one under another name that I do occasionally make entries in, but I don't typically remain signed in there.

Don't feel bad about the crying, sometimes I find myself more emotional than I ever did before I became paralyzed. I'm really not sure why, but I am definitely more in touch with my emotions than I ever was.

Well, take care of yourself.

You little girl sounds like such a sweetie! We went through the same thing with potty training with my daughter. She did a much better job if I didn't put a pull up on her.

We have our last Mops meeting this week, but I am on the steering team, too so our year is just really getting ready to start. It is pretty exciting.

Thanks for the update.

The Peanut just gets more and more precious everytime I come to read what's up and how much her and Lindsay have in common. Yeah, there is a lot of nakey butt around here too!! LOL!!

I think that's awesome you get to spend time with the Peanut and get touched by all those sweet moments.
Enjoy every moment!!

My goodness! I am sooo far behind on my blogging!! Congratulations on your pregnancy! I am so excited for you!!

I hope you are feeling much better very soon! My second pregnancy was much more difficult than my first, but now as I look at my two babies, I am overwhelmed by God's blessings! VERY MUCH worth those difficult months!

I'm a cryer too, but I try not to let that out too much. Something that will send me into a choker tearhold is a parade. And almost any parade will do!
I'm such a sap.
Bottomless toilet training! That's how we do it here too! And now my boy just got potty trained- he doesn't use diapers anymore except for naps and night time, but when he goes to the potty he takes his pants and undies off, and doesn't bother to put them back on again.
So we are still seeing a lot of full moons under this roof.
Hugs for this time in your pregnancy . . . If I could, I'd just stay in bed too.

Hey, Congrats!!! I am so happy for you...well, except for the sick part. I did that my entire pregnancy. Wasn't fun. And I didn't lose weight, so that sucked! I love the 'crap' statement! I discovered alot of the stuff I said that I considered "okay" just didn't sound nice coming from my little toddler's lips, lol!
