It's Lent again!

It's that time again. I posted last year about the meaning of lent and what I was going to give up. I don't think I did very well last year with my quest. I just didn't spend as much time as I wanted to finding what was placing space between me and God.

This year I think I have found the gulf. Too bad it's CHURCH. It's mostly my feelings towards local leaders and the things they do and say. So, I will be giving up something a little different this year. Since I shouldn't really give up church completely, (because I do want to renew my covenants with God, and realistically I won't be going for a while since I have a brand new baby and don't want to expose her to the sicknesses confined in closed areas with lots of people) I thought I would work on being completely honest with the leadership in my ward.

Honesty is ALWAYS the best policy RIGHT?


-be myself at church
-answer questions directed to me honestly and fully.
-participate in the activities and meetings that I want to
-read my scriptures more often (I might as well since I have baby sleep time, right?)
-work on my communication with GOD

I am going to do my best to do weekly progress reports (I am ashamed to say I sound like a missionary) for you to keep tabs on me. We will see how this year goes.

What are you working on this LENT?

You Know You are a Mommy When. . .

-you worry even when they can't move yet.

-you change 15 diapers in a day and don't notice the smell

-you have a little one start to throw up and you turn their projectile vomit toward yourself and it hits you in the face. (good thing I closed my mouth quickly)

-you don't immediately feel the need to remove your vomiticious clothing

-your sleep time, meal time, and pee time all revolve around the little ones schedule

-you praise the little one for burping in your face and letting out that adult size fart.

-you start to talk to Daddy through the Baby

-you dream about feedings and changing diapers

I thought I would let ya'll know about the tests that I have taken in the last four days.

All came back normal.

This is good, except for we still don't know what is causing all of my pain. Although, the pain has calmed down a little bit. (I'm sure the ibuprofen helps)

I can feed Sweet Pea again. She was not happy with me when I couldn't feed her. Formula didn't go well the first time she couldn't eat breast milk.

And then two days later when I had to stop feeding her again, she did not want to take a bottle from me even with my breast milk in it. She would take it from someone else though. I'm just glad that I can feed her again.

I'm tired, sore, but I'm able to take care of Sweet Pea again. I just have to be careful when I move around.

Hopefully the pain will just dissipate over time. (I hope this time is sooner than later)

Our Date Night

Pain in the body.

Can't Breathe.

6 Hour ER visit.

Had every test you can have done.

No idea what is wrong.

Just treating the pain. (I HATE taking pain medications. I'm always told to come back if the pain gets worse. How am I supposed to know if the pain is worse when you put me on Loratab?)

Can't feed Sweet Pea because of the stuff they injected into me for the CT scan. (I now understand the helpless unfulfilled feeling of not being able to breastfeed. Someone else has to bottle feed her. I can't do it.)

1- Breastfeeding going WAY better. Almost never hurts. I love Newman (whoever he is).

2- Sleeping sometimes. (I should be taking a nap)

3- I did laundry today. (don't tell. I'm still not supposed to do anything)

4- I think I will do some dishes too. (shhhhhhh)

5- bladder infection. poopiness

6- I'm trying to figure out how to stay warm tomorrow. Rocky Mountain Power is shutting down the power on our whole street for maintenance. Baby must stay warm. Any ideas?

Newman's Compound

Last week I knew why and was almost ready to give up like so many people do with Breastfeeding. But I have found the solution to my woes. I went to the Pediatrician for our two week check up. She gave me a prescription for this miraculous ointment called. . .


I even had a couple of you tell me that you have used it and loved it too. So, I decided it was worth a try.

It works wonderfully. I wouldn't go back to using anything else. The other stuff just seemed to make my nipples worse. But Newman's is a Dream. If you are having trouble or are really sore ask your doctor about this stuff.

Love is patient, love is kind.
It does not envy, it does not boast,
it is not proud.
It is not rude, it is not self-seeking,
it is not easily angered,
it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil
but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts,
always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails.

- 1 Corinthians 13:4 -



- My Hubby

-My Sweet Pea

-My Family Everywhere

-The Olympics

-The Outdoors

-The Gospel of Jesus Christ

-Food (especially french fries)



-Exercise (especially lifting)

My Little Sweet Pea

Here are a couple of long awaited pictures of our new little one.

This is her ready to go home for the first time.

This is my Hubby's Favorite picture of our Sweet Pea. I love her little smile. (that takes skill to catch a baby's smile on a camera phone. Good job Honey.)

New Mommy Question. . .

It's been two weeks. Sweet Pea is here and filling my days and nights. Mostly feedings and sleep, but that means me sleeping too. It's been a fun two weeks so far.

Although, we have had to avoid Daddy for the last five days. He was just too sick to come close to me or my little one. We didn't want to get sick. (no one wants a two week old to have strep throat, right?) It's killing Daddy not to be able to play with his precious little girl, but he will get plenty of playing time as soon as he is better.

The Breast Feeding has come along pretty well. I did have a question for you. I know that you can get chapped, cracked and sore from breast feeding, but what I wanted to know was have any of you ever gotten sores? These are more painful than the cracking, I think.

What did you do? Any relief?

(I promise I will get pics up soon, I'm just not near my camera)
