January 22, 2009

This was just over a year ago.....

I was just over 30 weeks pregnant and my little girl was already big and developed and just getting bigger. I can't wait to tell you all about the weeks leading up to her birth and then about her birth day. She is just a joy in my life and my 2nd born baby. I love her so much. I never knew that I could love anyone as much as I love Rachel but I can and I do.

"Just Keep Driving," Pisghetti, and Movie Review

I have been without a computer at home for a few days...I got that virus that is called Antivirus Live that pops up and keeps telling you that you have a virus and that it is scanning your computer, yeah, TOTAL hoax. Soooo.....$179.00 later, my computer is running GREAT!!!! It needed some fine tuning anyway!

So, Rachel funny...
Yesterday on the way to work she says, "Mommy, listen....
Me: "OH, GREAT! You just counted to 20 but you missed a few. Here let Mommy help you. 1, 2,'s 13, 14, 15, 16, 17...."
Rachel: "Um, Mommy, why don't you just keep driving."
I didn't say anything..just turned around, recognized the fact that she is my child and totally just said something that I would say and....kept driving.

Rachel wanted pisghetti today for lunch. So after having TOTAL "me" time this morning and getting my hair cut and colored, I went to Super Target and got, well, mostly the entire store or though it seemed....but in that, stuff to make spaghetti. I don't really care for spaghetti nor is it on my diet really but, I thought it would also be fun to see if Lauren likes spaghetti. She is 10 months old....well, this is the result....

Movie Review

Baby Mama Pictures, Images and Photos
I can CERTAINLY recognize the fact that I am WAY behind with this movie. We use Netflix and we get movies but we NEVER watch them for like MONTHS at a time. But I had a convo with a friend just yesterday about how I needed to watch this movie so the husband and I did today while the kids were taking a nap and to my surprise, I thought this movie was really cute! It was light hearted and fun. It was one that I will likely watch again! It was cute. Now...we can get another movie..yay!!

How Cute Is This??!

Why, yes, I am aware of the fact that I am a little biased!! Thanks for pointing that out!! =)

So, someone told me I should enter Lauren in the Regis and Kelly beautiful baby contest....I am sure she was just saying that to be nice but maybe I will...not because I have to prove to the world that she is, in fact, beautiful, but just for fun....which one of these should I use??? Tell me quick, I don't have much time!!!

SO....Thursday I picked the kids up from "school" otherwise known as daycare and Lauren had been throwing up and Rachel had yellow/green discharge from her eye. Yes, it was gross. On the way home they were know they were not feeling well. I had already decided that I was taking Rachel to Care Now for eye drops and to make sure it wasn't her ear because of the situation we had with Lauren while we were in Little Rock. Well, when we were almost home, I hear this wretching sound from the backseat and turned on the cargo light to see Lauren throwing up everywhere!! If you have never heard a baby throw up...NOT FUN! Anyway, I went in to work early on Friday, Brice stayed until 8:00, my aunt came and then I came home at 1:00. When Brice got home from work, I went back to work to finish some documentation. I did take Lauren to the doctor that afternoon and she has a double ear infection STILL so she is on ANOTHER antibiotic. She had only been off the Omnicef for 2 days and now she is on Augmentin...the HORRIBLE antibiotic that causes HORRIFIC diaper rashes and diarrhea....yep, we have that! So, our weekend was spent at home...doing nothing...until Sunday when I started feeling bad and then I was in bed all day and Daddy took care of the kids. Monday, worse!!! NO WORK FOR ME! I took the girls to daycare and I came back home and slept...from 9:00 until 3:00. It was glorious! Well, not really but I apparently needed the sleep.




Work has been super crazy!! Lauren is now 10 months old! Isn't that nuts! She will be a year old in 2 months. Seems like just yesterday I had the little rugrat! I just love that little monkey! She is crawling EVERYWHERE and FAST! She is trying to pull up too and walking won't be far behind. Growing too fast. She weighed 21 lbs, 10 oz at the doctor the other day. I think she is behind what Rachel was at that age. She is slimming up.....

Nothing much exciting and not really enough time to talk about it if there was anything happening. I will try to post pictures this weekend!

Tata for now!

Spiritual, eh?

Rachel apparently told her teacher this morning at church the story of Jesus. While in the car on the way home, I asked her to tell me the story that she told Ms. Leah.

Me: Rachel did you tell Ms. Leah a story today?
R: Yes!
Me: What was it about?
R: JESUS!! (your typical Sunday school answer)
Me: Well, tell me.
R: Once upon a time there was a boy named Joseph. Then Mary came. They all went to the animals - sheep, donkeys, cows, and a camel. Then Jesus was here. THE END!
Me: =)

I have to tell you the first time she told about the animals and then said, "The end!" Brice and I both said, "What about baby Jesus???" She just now told me about Jesus. She is sitting in my lap while I write this! =) She's so funny! Love her much!

Two thousand nine.
Two double zero nine.

However you want to say it, it is over! Done with and buh bye! The past year for me has been full of...well...full of LIFE! That seems to be the theme of my 2009. Let's recap my 2009...

I brought the new year in by going to bed super early because I was super pregnant and super large! Lost Granny at the end of January...hardest loss to date. Had an AWESOME baby shower in February and the following day went to the hospital...high blood pressure. I was hospitalized two more times in the month of February and ultimately stayed on February 27th. Stayed in the hospital for a total of 14 days...long days...and on March 12th, delivered a FAT, healthy, beautiful baby girl. Lauren Elizabeth was born weighing 9 lbs, 9 oz!!! My best friend gave birth to her sweet baby girl in May, Melody Elise. Summer was fun...uneventful. August we celebrated 5 years of marriage and another friend had a baby boy. November was a big month...Rachel turned 3 on the 14th and two days later, my other best friend had a gorgeous baby boy, Grayson Joel! We spent Thanksgiving as a family of four and Brice's Granny went to be with Jesus the next day. I accepted a full time job at the hospital where I have been PRN for 2 years. I started that job on December 7th. I am now the social worker for women's services and ortho/neuro surgical floor. I turned 29!!! Made our annual trip to Arkansas for Christmas and then 2009 came to a close. It was a great year and I know that 2010 will be also. I look forward to the blessings that God has in store.

More to come about what I resolve to do in the coming year...
