Friday Ramblings

Where do we put all the thoughts that randomly run through your head?

I such a scatter brain lately... give me a topic or a thought and after about 5 minutes I will forget and have moved on. The perfect example on my daily drive to work...I swear my brain drives at 15o mph...but my true thought process... -145%. So that leaves me with about 5% of true brain function, right?

The nursery not started is starting to bug the heck out of me...even though my mom is suppose to come this weekend to help. I am stressed about it now. I need to get in gear, yet I have very little desire or time. Maybe a to do list will help me?

One more week of work ....then it is going to be 8 glorious days at the beach!!! I really can not wait! Even though I may end up looking like a beach whale. But seriously after this week...I will take it and zip my mouth.

Do you ever sit in traffic and look at other drivers? yesterday I watched a man pick his nose, a girl singing and dancing while at a light...thinking mercy me. I am sure I look wonderful at times too. Kinda like the walmart emails you get at random times.... yet we all laugh.

My mind is starting to roll with the thoughts.... Wow, we are fixing to be a family of 4 plus a dog. I have gone from Me, myself and I to Mich and I, then Mich, Lisa and Zoe (dog), then a blessing to a family of Mich, Lisa, Lily Anne and Zoe. Now I am sitting here about 8 weeks away from Mich, Lisa, Lily Anne, OLIVIA, and Zoe. Holy cow!! I do wonder about her arrival. I am such a planner....I had a planned induction with Lily Anne. I had a wonderful experience and would love a redo. However, I think I want to wait til my due date...I THINK.

Why do Girl Scout cookies have to be so good? I have to buy them every year. 2 boxes of Samoas, 2 boxes of Thin mints, and 2 boxes of Tagalongs. Usually, Mich and I share the thin mints, but the Samoas are mine and the Tagalongs are Mich's. Haha....Mich gave a Tagalong to Lily Anne...winner. Lily Anne finished that cookie in no time..."more" she says. Mich is going to have to share that next box. My guilty grin...I get all of my cookies!!

see...random thoughts and non correlate together to make acutal sense. Welcome to Lisa's Brain!

31 Weeks

SO..... here we are at 31 weeks and some days. I am getting to the tired of being tired point. LAst night my hips decided to light me on fire. Not cool when you want to go to sleep. We are going to try to work on the nursery this weekend. My parents are suppose to come down and help we will see. I am trying to envision what painting with a active TODDLER around. I will post before and after photos at some point.

Lily Anne is doing wonderful and fully recovered from last weeks mess. We had a great weekend of warm weather and plenty of sunshine. So, we took Lily Anne to the park for running and playing on the playground. She loved every minute of it.

30 weeks and a sick munchkin!

We had a fun weekend with my sister and her twins (Sam and Haley) visiting us! Even with 7 years difference they played as if they were all the same age. Sam is so sweet to Lily Anne and protects her like no tomorrow. Haley is just now getting into Lily Anne especially since they can play dolls together. Thanks to Haley for sharing her American Girl Dolls. Liy Anne was in love with them....but this mommy is NO WHERE NEAR READY TO SHELL $100+ for a American Girl Doll.

Despite the rain and yucky weather....We brought the outside to the inside.

Upon request from Nana and Grandpa....a new updated photo of the 3 grandchildren.... shocking it will soon be 4 grandbabies. My mom (nana) is so excited about it.

Lily Anne is growing up so fast on me...and her hair is really starting to come in. Even growing in the length. Hopefully one day she will have enough for a pontail or enough to hold a bow.

Well.... After a wonderful weekend....but not so great in the sleeping area. I was very glad to have my sister come rescue my sanity this weekend. Lily Anne decided sleep was completely over rated and/or not needed. By Sunday evening she was completely ill! I was so hopeful that sunday night she would sleep good.... NOT!!! she whinning pretty much all night. Mich and I would go check on her and she would be a sleep but whinning.... I was clueless.

Monday she woke up extra early 5:30am! Seemed okay just moody. Off to daycare she went and off to a dr appt for me. Monday night....all heck broke lose. She was completely off....moody, crying, extra needy...and completely refused to eat. So, off we went to the after hours.

First they thought Strep throat....but after me telling them about the rash that appeared out of nowhere Saturday night, and that the woke up completely soaked with sweat. Lovely....Lily Anne has Hand Foot Mouth disease.... GREAT! it is completely no meds...just waiting game.

I hate waiting games. So I got to stay at home with her on Tuesday and Wednesday....I think she decided that it would be a great time to catch up on all the sleep she missed....with 2 really good naps with me on the recliner.

I sure did love the extra snuggles and love... and especially her letting me sit in the recliner with her when I was completely exhausted myself.


Sorry no belly picture this week....

We had a dr appt on Monday. Olivia seesm to be measuring right on track with a heart rate of 147. She has been so active lately....although, I do love feeling her. Her favorite place to hang out lately is on my right side in the ribe cage.

My poor body is definitely beginning to feel the effects of being pregnant. I am so tired at night and chasing Lily Anne and getting up and down off the floor is getting harder and harder.

Nursery progress....somebody needs to slap me....because we are not accomplishing anything lately. My mom says she is coming next week to paint...but that is still not 100% for sure. I have bought the paint. The furniture is at our house...just in boxes. I keep telling my self I have 10 weeks to go...plenty of time. But it just seems to be going so fast!

Maternity suits...swim suit that is...

shaking my head....why!!!!

So, yesterday for lunch I stopped by the Motherhood store...yes, I have to buy a swim suit (while pregnant). I mean swim suit shopping is already horrible as is...but do it while pregnant is even worse. selection to try on...

after looking in the mirror, I thought this is complete shame! Not only are you fat looking but I am pale white as can be!

I know you are thinkig you are due in May, why are you buying a swim suit in March? Well, Mich and I are going to the beach at the end of the month for a week. I am really look forward to the rest and relaxation. We asked my parents to come with this is going to fun for Lily Anne too.

So, beach trip ---> means you must buy a swim suit. After much debate... I decided on this one.

Picked up two shirts and a pj bottoms....and out the door I went. I felt okay with the purchase. Now I just have to be brave enough in three weeks to put it on!

Funny, my coworker loved the suit and told me to think about it this way. At least you do not have to suck you tummy in, worry about being fat...who cares you are pregnant and no one really can say wow how fat are you.

Now, for the pale skin factor....that complete genetics!

29 weeks / Lily Anne aw Potty Training

How Far Along: 29 weeks and some days

Size of baby: I am guessing around 3lbs...

Total Weight Gain/Loss: as of this morning....+12lbs

Maternity Clothes: pretty much all my clothes now.

Gender: Girl - Olivia Claire

Movement: lots and lots of movement! so much more than with Lily Anne. I love feeling her move....I think it is my favorite part of pregnancy.

Sleep: we seem to have good nights and bad nights...but overall not horrible yet.

Symptoms: Heartburn city!

What I Miss: being heartburn free. not being so tired...I get tired easily these days.

Best Moment of the week: not baby related.... But Lily Anne peed in the potty at daycare!

What I am looking forward to: getting started on the nursery.


Lily Anne has been doing really wonderful, with the exception of a few nights lately. Yesterday I went to pick her up for Daycare and her teachers said she peed in the potty! WHOA!!! Awesome job! She will sit on the pooty at school but not pee. That news was big progress. On the homefront she is doing pretty good with potty training. The mornings are her best. She gets up pees and poops....then eats breakfast. Sometime she will pee afterwards sometime not. But only using one pullup in the mornings!

But the 2nd big thing...when I walked into the room yesterday....(before the teachers comment)....Lily Anne got upp from story time out her lovey in her cabinet and gave me a hug. I was so proud of her!!!

Bad Days = Bad Nights

I am going to need tooth picks for my eyes by 3pm!

Lily Anne did not really have a good day yesterday or night!Yesterday, I took her to daycare and told her teacher that her lovey was in the bag washed and the clothes that she wore home on friday. She said okay.

***Lily Anne is very attached to her lovey...she needs it to sleep and feel secure.***

Anyway, Mich went to pick her up yesterday and Lily Anne was screaming! Mich tried to figure out what happened...she was biten by a kid...her nose has a boo boo on it... and she is crying. So her afternoon teacher said she did not do very well today with no lovey. Mich's eyes about popped.... He told them I brought it and told the morning teacher. Well short story they found it.

***Mich explained to her Am teacher again this morning about the lovey!***

Mich called me on my way home to let me I was prepared for a extra whinning little girl. So my cranky baby was happy to see us last night and was quite a blabbling toddler...blabbling sounds after sounds....Then it came time for bed and the meltdown from the horrible day occurs.

Well, off to sleep .... 3:45am...Lily Anne decides it is a great time to wake up. I gave her 15 minutes...before I even moved. Normally if I hear something out of her it is her dreaming....or she wakes up screaming. I are just whimpering...then it turns into screams. So up I go. I sit int he rocking chair with...only to listen to her talk to me. Seriously Lily Anne mommy really wants to sleep right now...and we can talk in the AM. She finally settles down and falls back to sleep around 5am....I am wide awake and so is Olivia in my belly! this is just lovely and unfair!!!

5;30 I think I managed to close my eyes...unitl I hear "babe, you okay"....Mich was coming to check on us and see if we could swap. But I opted to snuggle my sleeping child for the moment. But at 6:30am I needed to start getting ready for the day of work. YUCK... and I am tired already!

I managed to sneak out of the recliner and leave Lily Anne sleeping in it. Should have taken a photo...but no way in heck was I going to wake her with the flash.
