I am still here..

I'm not going to lie, I've pretty much been sleeping the past few weeks... er month.... whatever. 1st trimester of pregnancy is so damn exhausting. then add in trying to regulate my body on my new depression meds, plus taking diclectin (dr's gift from heaven for morning/all day sickness) which ooh yay, causes drowsyness, I've been sleeping a lot.

There was one week that I was so thankful for swimming lessons because it exhausted Austin so much he would have up to a 4 hr nap. That meant mommy got a 4 hr nap. That meant Mommy was in heaven. I was crawling into bed just after Austin at night. And still I was tired in the morning.

I'm starting to get back into the swing of things and I don't think I've had a nap for at least 3 days! Amazing, I know. lol. Tomorrow though, will be a nap day. I have to go to the Airport to pick up Dave and me tired with a 40 minute drive on the highway ahead of me? Not good at all. I don't want to put myself, my son or any other drivers at risk because I'm driving dozey. So nap time it is. And I'm already looking forward to it! lol.

I've got a long list of to do's (or I guess it would be honey-do's) for this week while Dave's home. He's got some shelves to hang (thank you pinterest for the idea) some curtains to hang, some spiders, empty webs and dead spider bodies to eradicate. Then he needs to fix our outside hose (it was crap and the hose pretty much broke open causing an awesome puddle going down the road) so we can water our flowers. Sorry mom, I may have killed some..... But they did really well until this week!!!! Then I'm sure I'll come up with a million other things by then. Whew, I'm tired again just reading his to do list.

Then we might hit the second hand kids store to see if there are any amazing deals on some baby supplies or things we need. Like a stroller. Austin is a runner and a wanderer all at the same time. He will take off so fast before you know it. Or you will be walking and he will slow right down to look at every single thing around. In crowded places I could care less if people think he's too old, he's in the stroller. So... it stands to reason that we will need a double stroller of some sort. I like the looks of the sit n stand strollers so we might just go with them since they seem to be best for us. Austin will be over 3 when this baby is born, he doesn't need a structured seat like he did when he was a yr old, somewhere to stand or sit, even backwards seems like a good idea. I will have to do some research into strollers over the next little bit.

Anyways, this momma is tired. off to bed I go. This little one 'turns' 14 weeks along tomorrow. Good night everyone!

A child and an iPod

While we were in swimming lessons I was talking to another mom about learning. I had told her that I am a firm believer that an iPod for kids isn't that bad. Don't get me wrong Austin doesn't have his own iPod, but he uses mine and I would say that most of the apps on it are for him. The other mom kind of gave me a look.

Austin learned his animals and noises from the iPod. His current fav game is one that is teaching him his shapes. He cheers an claps with the app when he gets a shape right. He knows such random words thanks to the baby flash cards. (hello abacus!) He colors with Dora, plays ping pong with McQueen, he plays memory with a giraffe, and ok yes, he is a master pro at angry birds.

I say technology isn't all that bad. It gives me a few minutes to get stuff done, or some mornings an extra 20 minutes of sleep while he lies beside me and plays. Some mornings that makes it so worth while. If he finds the Netflix app I can get up to an extra 45 min while he watches super why or dinosaur train or Thomas.

So anyone reading this who is thinking of letting their kids play with their iPod/iPhone I say it is well worth it. There are so many great apps out there!

Conversations with a toddler

This morning I had quite the convo with Austin and as soon as we finished I thought man I have to write that one down. So, here you are. But warning: It contains poop talk.

I'm cleaning up a poopy bum.
A: bye bye poopy!
A: poop go back home?
Me: well, poop doesn't really have a home.
A: poop go play?
A: poop go eat?
Me: poop doesn't eat. The food you eat turns into poop.
A: why?
Me: because that's how your body works, it changes your food into poop.
A: oooohhhhhhhhhhhhhh wow!

The element of a surprise.

This year Dave was working for Father's day. We celebrated Father's day when he got home. Austin and I had quite the surprise for him!! Here is his gift in pictures:

Look Daddy! I made that for you!!!

Note: It was not a digital picture frame in the box. lol

This is when he found out what his present was. This is his "you've just blown me away" face.

Still Deliriously happy with his present.

And what was his present you ask??












This T-shirt!!!!

Yes, that does say Dad of One plus a Bun. We're pregnant!!! I had such a hard time keeping it from him when I found out. I knew I wanted to do something fun and not tell him over the phone during one of our 5 minute phone calls.

I *LOVE* the look on his face of utter surprise and I am so glad I took the camera with us to take pictures.

Wordless Wednesday

We're dog sitting for friends this week and this picture was taken after Austin dropped his banana and the dog swooped in and grabbed it before Austin could get it back.

Obviously, he was a little upset. Lol
