Love it

I love this cooking blog and they're giving away this cute apron! Check it out...

Also, I am very happy to announce that Luci is back to her normal sleeping pattern. She makes me so happy. Today we went to visit Jacob at school since he hasn't been able to see Luci much this week. We went out for pizza and the whole way home Luci kept saying, "Daddy! Fun! Pizza! Num!" Then with a concerned look on her face, "Daddy, school".

I had a midwife appointment today. The nurse told me I that I gained too much weight this month...okay so I did gain 7 one month. But she looked at me like I was crazy, like I'm eating for my whole family or something. I kept trying to count the lbs. I've gained since I've been pregnant and it was only adding up to 9lbs...I'm almost 20 weeks. I'm pretty sure that's just fine! Anyway, the midwife reassured me that 9lbs is great. Some people gain a lot in one month and hardly any in other months. We shall see! This baby makes me hungry! took the midwife almost 10 minutes to find the heartbeat today. We could hear the little stinker zooming all over the place and moving though. The baby finally sat still just long enough for her to count. She asked me if I had coffee for breakfast or something. "Nope, nope just oatmeal with some honey on it", I said. We've got another non-stop dean baby in this womb of mine.

A fussy one

This little one has been giving me quite a test the last week or so. For some reason she refuses to sleep. She just screams instead. To the point that she has lost her cute little voice several times. So she's completely overtired, bags under her eyes and all. This means days filled with, "NO!, no, No!"coming from her sweet little mouth. Distraction is a great tool. Especially reading and her baby doll. Poor girl.

Well, last night Jacob gave her a priesthood blessing and decided to put her in a different room. She still fussed for a little bit, but no screaming! I wonder if she is afraid of something in her room? Is it separation anxiety from starting nursery at church? I guess she'll be sleeping in her pack and play until we figure it out. Until then, I'm so glad it's the weekend so Jacob can help me...I was starting to go crazy. I did crazy things yesterday. I almost bought hostess donuts at the store, and I made macaroni and cheese with canned peaches for dinner. Those that know me can attest that those things are considered crazy for me. Since I really don't like packaged mac and cheese, and hostess donuts are packed with hydrogenated oil (a contraband in our home). Pray for me my friends and for my sweet little girl to get over her fears.

So Glad

Tonight I'm all by my lonesome while the baby sleeps and Jacob has meetings and basketball. Surprisingly, I have been cleaning much of the night away. I guess being in my second trimester has given me a burst of unexpected energy. We are preparing for a good, no, a great friend to come visit us this weekend; I guess that helps to motivate me too.
I put away my skinny clothes and got out my maternity clothes. I'm giving in to the comfy pants earlier than last time. I really don't care if I can fit into my normal jeans for my whole pregnancy. Don't ask me why I cared last time. I am also feeling the little kernel inside of me popping sooner than last time too. I love, love, love that feeling. It makes it so real. In all this quiet time I have thought about some things that make me glad.

So glad that I'm not a single parent.

So glad that we have good friends that let us borrow their clothes, their phone, their Mountain sports channel, their house, their time, oh and whatever else...

So glad that fall break is fast approaching.

So glad that Jacob got an internship for this summer, and a paid one at that.

So glad that I get to be a part of my family's big happenings next month (Lot's of weddings, 3 actually).

So glad for the beautiful weather that is fall.

So glad for a happy, smiley, non-stop little Luci. (Cookie Monster slippers: 2$ from goodwill)
(She is saying "cookie monster", who she used to think was Elmo)

And the list could go on, and on...
