About Me

My photo
I'm a work in progress. I'm a mom to two, soon to be three, awesome kids that have taught me things I didn't know I needed to learn. I'm married to a kind and handsome man that I genuinely love to be with. I like to be around interesting people and enjoy learning from others. I'm quirky, energetic, have a glass that's usually half full (of wine) and am spontaneous when it fits into my plans. My life is much slower than it once was and even though I sometimes miss the old days, I never take these new days for granted. So, I've given up alot of things in order to give more of myself to my family ... and they better appreciate it. I mean, I expect nothing in return for my selfless love.

What a great day!

Afternoons and evenings are usually soooo hard for me lately. I feel pretty good in the mornings, but some time after lunch I start to get overwhelmingly fatigued and nauseous. Sometimes I feel like crying. Today I decided to take the girls on a walk to see if that would help ... and it did! I felt SO different. We walked to my mom's work and then back home. Before going inside we sat in the grass and then drew with sidewalk chalk. I had enough energy to bathe the girls, get them ready for bed, etc! (which I would have done anyway, but it was a relief to actually have the energy to truly enjoy our time) It was great. (Nate isn't around because he's studying for his comprehensive exam that's tomorrow!!! He's pretty nervous, but I don't think he needs to be. His GPA is outstanding and he's crazy smart.)

This morning we got to see our new baby via ultrasound. The sonographer was really great and took her time getting some cute pics and explaining everything to us. She even printed a picture out for Mazie. :) This new ob office is wonderful and I'm very, very thankful that I'm not experiencing anything like I did in my last pregnancy (super yikes). My mom came with us  ... it was the first time she'd seen an ultrasound live so that was special! New baby is cute and was wiggling his/her little arms and legs around a bunch. :) Heehee. Tiny, tiny human.

PS - I just cried during American Idol. :/ Er ...
