Make It Known

I had my first appointment with the Doctor this week. This means we did an ultra sound to find out exactly how far along the baby is measuring. I am measuring 13 weeks. One week less than I thought that I was going to be. (my doc informed me that sperm can hang out for a week. they were just chillin')

Anyway, while the goop was being smeared across my belly with the cold little wand thing, my little babe decided to do some flips. My Sweet wonderful doctor asks,

"Do you want to know what you are having?"

Me: "YES."

Doc: "We usually can't tell by now, but I'm pretty sure this is a boy."

Me: "Are you sure?"

Doc: "We will make sure at your big ultra sound. . . (baby flips over again). . OH. . . HAHHAHAHA. Yup definitely a BOY!"

Apparently my little Green Bean wanted to make himself known. We caught a picture and I got to come home and tell my Hubby he was getting a boy. It was a shock. We both thought we were going to have another girl. But we are excited.

Washing Wonders

Today I was thinking that I could get some laundry rotated while my little Sweet Pea was eating her lunch. I had no idea that washing the clothes was a team event. She was so angry with me. Whooping and Hollering at me. I had to stop. Clean her up. And have her help me.

Who knew that Washing the clothes was so important to a toddler?

Spring Stroller Hunt

Oh the beautiful glimpse of Spring. It didn't smell like Spring, but it sure did feel like it. The warmer weather, the ability to go outside and walk, just wearing a sweatshirt. It was glorious. But alas it couldn't last.

We got a couple inches of snow last night. The wind howled and screamed. And today there is no walking for us. My stroller is unable to maneuver in the slushiness. I have GOT to get me a new stroller. Being couped up inside is not acceptable anymore.

What kind of stroller do you use? why do you love/hate it?

You Know You're A Mother When. . .

  • you vacuum the floor and 5 second later it needs it again
  • your idea of clean/folded clothes is the pile you pulled out of the dryer and put on your bed
  • you love snuggles from a miniature you
  • you say "stop" or "don't do that" or "No" 100 million times a day
  • your little one is hurt and they come crying to you
  • you can't remember the last time you had a grown up conversation (besides the Hubby)
  • you will drink out of the same water bottle as a child
  • you don't mind slobbery kisses anymore
The joys you never knew you would actually LOVE.

Birthday Wand

I have been so excited to post this. My Hubby and I didn't get professional baby pictures for our Sweet Pea as we had planned, so when her birthday came around this year we wanted to get some. I was told to bring a few props with us to the shoot. So, I dreamed up a wand to go with one of my Sweet Peas dresses.

It took me a while at Joann's to find everything needed to create my wand, but I did it. Here it is:

Sweet Pea loved it. She loved it so much, that she started to eat off the hot glue on the bottom and get sparkly stuff all in her mouth. I guess we will have to save the wand until she is older and understands that we only eat food.
