It's a busy week...

I think that this is probably my favorite picture that I have taken of Rory. This is straight out of the editing! Rarely do I have a pic that I don't at least have to crop or adjust the lighting.

5 on Friday - The never ever edition.

For your Friday enjoyment...and just for are 5 things that you will NEVER spot in Miss Bee's wardrobe. Nothing against anyone who does like this stuff....just not my style!

  1. Rufflie Socks
2. Elastic Lace Headbands...No head garters!!!! The words "Stretch" and "Lace" should never, ever be associated. 3. "Little Dolly" dresses - aka W@L-Mart lace dresses...Make my skin crawl.
4. Camo infant attire
5. Patent Leather shoes. Although I would have mauled someone on the playground for a pair when I was a little girl...I am glad that I was never granted my request. The only exception to this rule is Tap Shoes...the only patent that will ever cross the door jam.
There ya go...a random 5 on Friday!

Whew...what a week. I am sure glad that today is Friday. I am ready for the weekend! Mom and Tim are coming into town this weekend to visit. I am pretending like they are coming to see me, but in is Miss Bee that they are chomping at the bit to see. It is OK though, I will just lounge around here in delusion land. I hope that everyone has a great weekend and I will see you folks on Monday! Just for is a 5 on Friday for ya!

  1. Kevin is working late on Saturday. I hate it, Rory hates it, Nellie hates it, Ruby could care less. Since Kev isn't off on Sundays any longer, it makes what little time we have together even shorter since he sleeps in on Sunday, we go to church, grab a quick bite to eat and then he starts getting ready and leaves for work. YUCK
  2. Rory has almost grown too long for the pack-n-play. Who gave her permission to grow sure wasn't me! My tiny girl is getting big...good thing she is also getting even cuter or I might have to make her wear a brick on her head to attempt to slow her down.
  3. I am really worried about a good friend of mine. REALLY worried...say a little prayer.
  4. How is it that ALL the big bills come due in one month? Quarterly student loan, car insurance and 3 car tags--all in May, SO not fair!
  5. Rory has decided that Rice cereal bites and she would just rather have baby food. She will eat oatmeal, but only if you trick her and put it on the back of the spoon and the baby food on the front. Smart cookie!

5 Months

Rory was officially 5 months old yesterday. I can hardly believe it! She is so much fun at this age and we are enjoying every second of it.

Tuesday, May 12, 2009

10 on Tuesday

  1. Rory is 5 months old today...crazy!
  2. We went to visit Kevin's grandmother tonight.
  3. I want to go to the beach....REALLY badly!
  4. Enough with the rain and dreary weather, where are all those May flowers?
  5. I will try to get Rory's official 5 month pictures up as soon as I can (I have to actually take them first)
  6. I will be 29 in less than a month...28 was a great year...I hope 29 is equally as great!
  7. We are slammed at work...seriously....more than I can get done in 1 day!
  8. I am having trouble coming up with 10
  9. This whole "post-a-day" thing is hard with a baby at home.
  10. Rory HATES tummy time, I don't know how she is ever supposed to roll over if she screams until she looses her breath (or I can't take it any longer and flip her over) and I flip her back over. She will roll from her back to her side, but that is really all she cares to do.

Mother's Day...warning, emotional rambling ahead.

  • A year ago, on Mother's Day, we told our families that we were expecting a baby. Honestly, I was nervous even then to let anyone in on the “secret.” I was terrified that something would happen and we would not get our sweet baby. I guess infertility does that to you. I can remember the feeling of telling them and then thinking “Holy Cow I hope that we aren’t all disappointed.” I can remember praying that God would bless us with a healthy, happy baby.
  • I can remember the year before that, (and the year before that) being sad on Mother’s Day because I honestly didn’t know if I would ever get to experience Mother’s Day as a Mother myself. I can remember praying that God would bless us with a baby. I can remember hearing people talk about what a pain it is to have to get up in the middle of the night because “the baby woke up” and thinking to myself how lucky they were to be able to look at that sweet face and watch him/her drift off to sleep. I can remember watching Kevin with our friend’s babies and wondering if I would ever get the chance to see him with our baby in the early light of the morning. I can remember wanting to be a Mother so bad that it made my arms ache because I so desperately wanted to feel the weight of a baby…MY baby in my arms.
  • Yesterday I woke up at 4am to the sounds of my babbling baby. Yesterday I leaned over the edge of her bed and watched her smile at the sight of my tired, groggy, sheet creased face. Yesterday I put her little pink pacie back in her mouth and watched her heavy eye lids close and her pacie wiggle in her sweet little mouth as she drifted off to sleep. Yesterday I closed my eyes and, for the 1 millionth time, silently thanked God for trusting me enough to send me this precious child. Yesterday I stayed there, peeking over the side of her bed and just watched her chest rise and fall in the most constant, reassuring rhythm until my eyelids grew heavy too. Yesterday I snuggled up next to my sleeping husband and marveled at the fact that we were chosen to be the parents to such a sweet little baby and promptly fell asleep to the sounds of her sleeping wimpers. Yesterday I rocked my sweet girl and told her that she is the reason that I was born...she is my miracle...and I'll never let her for get it. Yesterday, I got my wish, my answered prayer, I got to celebrate Mother’s Day with arms aching from the weight of a growing baby girl.

My latest project

I just completed a new outfit for Miss Bee. She looks really cute in it! She hasn't worn it out yet, but I will try to remember to get a picture when she does! Close up...Little Ruby dogs...Nellie is jealous!

Wednesday, May 6, 2009

This pic has nothing to do with anything...I just thought it was cute! I can't believe she is almost 5 months old.

10 on Tuesday - Things not to say V2.0

In contrast to yesterday’s post about 10 things-Fertility Challenged, today (in honor of 10 on Tuesday) is 10 things not to say (or do) to a pregnant woman (my thoughts again included for no charge)

  1. “Excuse me, but are you pregnant?” – Nope, not pregnant, just swallowed watermelon seeds and miracle grow…what was your first clue?
  2. Rub, rub, rub on pregnant lady’s belly – Do I know you and do you value your limbs? If the answers are “no” and “yes” respectively, back off before I introduce myself in a not so friendly way.
  3. You are eating for two now” – Yep, so what is your excuse? I know that I am pregnant, but there is no need to try to fatten me up, I am doing a GREAT job on my own
  4. “Wow, you sure do eat a lot” – OK, see #3…damned if you do, damned if you don’t. I can loose can't loose stupid.
  5. When are you due…like tomorrow?” – NEVER make this statement, chances are, my due date is not even remotely close and even if it is tomorrow, when you are at the end, tomorrow feels like next year.
  6. “Wow, can you even see your feet?” – Nope but luckily I have excellent muscle memory and they are still capable of kicking you in the shins
  7. “When are you having another one?”Umm in case you haven’t noticed, the hotel is currently booked, can I please have some vacancy time to prepare for the next occupant? This is not a Motel 6.
  8. “Are you having twins?” – Nope, but thanks for making me feel like a beached whale!
  9. “Your poor husband?” – Are you freaking kidding me?
  10. “I just love pregnant women” – Really? Because we aren’t really that fond of you.

Post a Day

OK, I am going to TRY to do a post a day (weekdays only) for a month like I did last March. Notice I said TRYING! I can't guarantee that they will all have pictures...but I will do my best!

Today's post is: 10 things NOT to say to someone who is experiencing fertility issues (with my thoughts included at no extra need to thank me! :) ) I found this post saved as a draft from the day before we found out we were pregnant. I didn't post it because of obvious reasons, but thought that I might go ahead and float it on out there.

  1. “Just relax it will happen” - I assure you that “relaxing” is not the issue. If "relaxing" got you pregnant...Destin, the Caribbean and Hawaii wouldn't be NEARLY as popular as they are.
  2. “Start the process of adoption, then you will get pregnant” – If only it were that simple. Umm, odd response, and not accurate...adoption is not an alternative to pregnancy to be taken lightly.
  3. “Gosh, I hope that when you do get pregnant, that you don’t have like…5” – You and me both sister!
  4. “It was so easy for me to get pregnant” – I know, that is why I want stick my negative pregnancy tests, ovulation predictor kits and thermometer up your nose.
  5. “Maybe you should pray about it”Ummm, again, refer to #1…praying does not a pregnant woman make…believe me, if that is all it would take, I'd have a house full by now. Praying to be pregnant makes you no more pregnant than praying NOT to be pregnant makes you not pregnant.
  6. “Maybe you weren’t meant to have children”Ummm, are you looking for a reason for plastic surgery, because I could fix your face so that it could become a very near possibility.
  7. “Maybe you aren’t doing it right” – OK kids, we had a class in 4th grade that pretty much covered this one. I graduated from college and I am pretty sure that if I am intelligent enough to figure out Calculus, I can figure this one out.
  8. “Don’t worry about it, good things come to those who wait” – Again, refer to #1…worry…not the issue.
  9. “Give it a year or two, it will happen” – Has it occurred to you that I might have already passed the 1-2 year mark? I didn’t think so.
  10. “Oh, look at all the pregnant people, I am sorry that you can’t join them.” – Me too, Sister, Me too!
OK, there it is...take it for what it is worth...

Mom Survey

I found this survey and thought that it was mildly interesting. Some questions are obviously geared towards older children and are not applicable...but interesting none the less!

  1. How old is your child/children? Almost 5 Months
  2. Girl(s) or Boy(s)? Girl
  3. Bottle fed or breast fed? Bottle
  4. Are there more children in your future? Probably, we are PLANNING on waiting until Miss Bee is out of diapers.
  5. Do you stay at home with your kid(s)? No...Kev is home with her until 2 and then our super sweet babysitter comes and keeps her until I get home at 5. It works out well!
  6. Bedtime (kids…not you!): somewhere between 8:30 and 9:30 depending on when she falls asleep.
  7. Where do your kids go to school/daycare? No where at the moment...she will go to Preschool at C@haba Bend and the local elementary school for school when the time comes. But that is a ways off, so I try not to think about it!
  8. Do you like their school/daycare? Sure...Daddy Day Care is great! ;)
  9. Would you ever homeschool? NOPE! There is NO WAY that I can prepare her with everything that she needs to know to get into college. I could probably handle it up until 4th or 5th grade, but Algebra, Calculus, Chemistry, Biology...nope...barely made it through when I was in school! We moved into a stellar school district for a reason! If for some freak reason, we decide that we don't like our school district, we will do private school. I think that the social implications of school are way too important to home school.
  10. Is college important…will you insist that your child go? There is no option not to go. She can go where she wants to...but she has to go, and has to graduate with a 4 year degree in something.
  11. Favorite time of the day: Right after Miss Bee's bath when she is full and clean and smells good and is usually very talkative...holy cow...cuteness overload!
  12. Favorite food: Right now Pears or Bananas
  13. Kid’s favorite happy meal: If I had my way she wouldn't ever have a happy meal but I am sure she will at some point so I am going to have to get back to you on this one.
  14. Do you eat organic? Sometimes...I don't insist on it though. I try to make her baby food with organic since I would like to keep her as free from chemicals and pesticides for as long as possible.
  15. Does your child have a security item? Yep, she loves her some t@ggies and her lambie.
  16. Thumb sucker or Pacie Baby? Pacie baby all the way...think Maggie Simpson.
  17. Any extra curricular activities? Umm, nope...we figure that we will work on crawling and walking before we move on to organized activity.
  18. Does your child have any nicknames? Little Bear, Baby Pepper (Kev is Sgt. Pepper), Tiny Girl, Doodle Bug
  19. Do your children share a room or have their own? Nope, she has her own, although sometimes she shares ours with us.
  20. Discipline: Time out or spank? Umm, neither currently but when the time comes, a little of both I am sure, depending on the situation!

There you go...I think that I might take it around this time next year and see if any of my answers have changed. Have a great weekend! Ok you guys...your away...I can't wait to see your responses.
