It’s been almost a year.

Well. Maybe like 10 and a half months. But who is counting?

So. What’s been going on in our household?

C is 2 now. Running around. Talking. Getting into everything. Learning something new everyday. Exploring his world. Challenging Mommy and Daddy. All in all, keeping us very busy! But we’re loving it.

And the big news…

dun dun dun…

We’re having another baby!!

[There are moments in which I wonder, “Who thought this was a good idea?!?”, but then I get excited again!]

This bean is due at the end of April. Actually, my due dates are exactly, to the day, two and a half years apart. So if this bean comes a little late, then C and Bean could be exactly two and a half years apart. Crazy!!


In other news.

We’re settled nicely into the house. We’ve painted two bathrooms and C’s room. Hoping to get to our room and another bathroom before Bean gets here.

I’m taking a photography course at a local college which I’m enjoying immensely. I’ve learned so much and actually know how to use this really nice camera that I own. Perhaps I’ll post some photos for enjoyment soon.

J is busy with his new position at his job. And with teaching a night course at our local college.

Other than that, just terribly busy with the day to day life of being a mom, a wife, pregnant, trying to keep a semi clean house, and keeping C from getting into everything. I’m hoping that I’ll start posting here more often. It’s fun to keep a record of how things are going and to look back and see what’s been going on in our crazy life!


Oh gosh…


I just realized how long it’s been since I’ve posted.

*sigh* Life has been busy!

I’ll do a quick rundown of what’s been going on around here and hopefully I can stay up on posting.

The house. It is coming along quickly! We are scheduled to close on June 18th and then move in the next day. So that’s less than two weeks [12 days if you’re counting… but who is? ;c)]!! We stopped by yesterday to see what had been done. The exterior is mostly finished [lights and such need to be put up], the ceiling has been done [California drop down, it’s a pattern of sorts], the walls were primed, the stuff that goes under then tiles is down, and the tiles were sitting in the living room. I can’t believe that we’re so close! One of our neighbors have actually moved in already! We didn’t get a chance to say “hi” because C had fallen asleep in the car, so we didn’t want to leave him alone. But I’m sure we’ll meet them soon enough!

Packing. Ugh. I hate it! I wish someone would come and pack the rest of my stuff up for me. We’ve gotten a good chunk of it done, but it seems like there is constantly more! Plus, I’m running out of boxes.

Diapers. Haven’t procured any more as of yet. But I’m getting very excited for the move we can start using them! We have a buttload of sposies right now [I bought a box, then we traveled for the weekend and forgot to pack some], so once we use those up… it’ll be time!

Food. I hit a point last week where I realized that I had about 3 ice cubes of food left for C. I spent the rest of the day steaming, baking, and pureeing! But he is now topped up on green beans, carrots, applesauce, sweet potatoes, pears, and mangoes. I still need to steam some zucchini and peas… too many orange fruits and veggies aren’t a good thing!

Sleep. C has been sleeping better! We no longer are nursing in the middle of the night! Hoorah! And he puts himself to sleep [usually, there have obviously been exceptions]. And he’s been sleeping all the way through until 6ish! It does take a bit of work to get him back to sleep, but he usually will. I can’t wait until we can push and get him sleeping all the way until 7. Also, to make this more exciting, I really need to stop going to bed around 11.

Other. J is away from today until Thursday. So I’ll be living what I call the single parent life. J is quick to point out that if I were a single parent, that I’d have to work… so I’ll edit it to the ‘unemployed single parent life’. I’m hoping that the sleep keeps up and the teeth stay at bay while J is away.

C turned 7 months over the weekend. I’ve been havingĀ  a bit of a reminiscing weekend, looking at pictures and thinking about labor, delivery, and the early days of him being here. I still can’t believe how much he has changed since I’ve had him. I also realized over the weekend, that I never fully wrote out my story of labor and delivery. I think I’m going to start working on that, so you can look forward to reading it [or avoiding it if you’re not into that].

But it’s getting late and I need to get into the habit of going to bed early. Since I don’t have J to distract me during the evenings, maybe I’ll post more this week between packing boxes.
