This Mornings Check Up!!!

Tuesday, December 29, 2009

I went to the doctor this morning. In one weeks time, I only dilated 1/2 a centimeter! I am now at a 1 1/2. (Men, you may want to stop reading now)
She asked me what I would like to do and I asked her what my options were. She said well lets go ahead and she called the hospital to see if the 4th, 5th, or 6th would be best and she came back in and told me the 4th, which is on a Monday. Since my cervix is only dilated to 1.5, she wants me to go in Sunday night and they will give me some type of medicine vaginally (cant think of the name of it) that will help "ripen" my cervix, and then bright and early Monday morning we will induce. I've heard different stories of inducing, some say it takes longer, some say it moves quickly. My sister was only in labor for 4.5 hours with her inducing, so Im hoping to take that path! I was at the hospital for like 14 hours before I had Kelsey, so, I hoping to not go there again!!! (she was not induced)

Wish me luck! I still have lots to do around the house, but Im thinking now that I have a date to work with, I will get more done! Of course she could always come sooner!

Pro/Con List, countdown to Saylor Grace!!!

Sunday, December 27, 2009

I've change my background to the pinkest of the pink that I could find as a count-down to Saylor Graces arrival!
I have a doctors appointment on Tuesday at 8:50am. She said at that appointment we could start talking about inducing me, or I can wait until she decides to come on her own! I have thought and thought about this...There are many pro's and con's...
Is it normal or natural to look at a calendar and pick your babys birthday?? With it being soo close to New Years Eve, I don't think I want her to be born on the 31st, BUT I've heard the 1st baby of the new year gets free stuff! (hey it's just a thought!) BUT I don't want her out celebrating her birthday on New Years Eve when she is older, WAY older! Our babys room still isn't finished, even though my husband is in there working away right now! He is hanging sheetrock as we speak. It could be finished very very soon! I would like to be able to take down all of my Christmas decor before baby arrives, which would put us into 2010. I still have several things to get for the baby, but I do have all of the basics: diapers, wipes, clothes, socks, hats, blankets... I still have not decided how Im going to feed her! Do I want to breastfeed, pump, formula, a combo of both??? I guess thats pretty important to figure out..yea, that prob should go above picking out the paint color!
That is pretty much my pro/con list, in no particular order, you can figure out the pros and the cons...

Baking Day!!!

I've been reading about baking day on everyone elses blog and decided to give it a try. With the new baby coming, I figured it would really help! Kelsey and I ended up making 2 dozen muffins, 2 batches of taco meat, 2 batches of spaghetti sauce, 2 batches of Pioneer Woman Chili, and 2 batches of beef enchiladas. We've already used some of the food, but Im hoping to have another baking day really soon!

The muffins Kelsey made. We have an awesome Starbucks muffin recipe that we use. We just freeze them in gallon ziplock bags, and take one or two out as we need them.

Spaghetti sauce with directions, can't get any easier than that!

Looking Yummy!!!

I bought 8 pounds of hamburger meat when it was on sale at Kroger!

Kelsey helping in the kitchen!

Merry Christmas!!!

Things NOT to say to a pregnant person!!!

Tuesday, December 15, 2009

Im about 36 weeks now and am feeling really major problems, Im having good spurts of energy, I don't FEEL like a ankles are not swollen, I don't other words Im feeling pretty good about this pregnancy body thing!


Went to Olive Garden for my 32nd Birthday. I get dressed up kinda cute with a black (black=slimming) shirt and jeans. We walk in and the hostess says Hi, CAN YOU FIT INTO A BOOTH!!!" Insead of giving me the booth/table option! My eyes got huge and of course Luke started laughing! Of course I was a little offended and said UH, yes, I would like a booth, and she says "WELL IT LOOKS LIKE YOUR ABOUT TO POP ANYDAY!!!" No lady, I have over a month to go is what I wanted to say, but just gave her this seat me now and give me my cheese garlic biscuts now smile.
After we sat down I was going on and on to Luke about how rude she was and little did I know she was cleaning off the table behind us, even though Im sure Luke saw her! She did come over and appoligize after that!

Today I was in Target making a return (which by the way is the BIGGEST headache in the world) and the girl helping me said, "I just want to tell you that you make such a cute pregnant person"...It was so nice to hear that! Then she opened her mouth again and said "So do you know what your having?" I said yes, a little girl and she said "OH THERE IS ONLY ONE IN THERE!!!!" Yep, only one was the only answer I could think of!!! Im sure steam was coming out of my ears!

AND if I hear "How much longer do you have, you look like your about to pop" one more time!!! POP?? Yea, I wish it was that easy, just stick a needle in me and POP, here is your baby!

OK, so I've vented...I feel better now...just be nice to us pregnant know how hormonal we are!

Monday, December 7, 2009

Well, this is my attempt at Lucille Ball! My cousin turned 30, so we celebrated her birthday OLD HOLLYWOOD STYLE!! We love themes!!!
More pics to follow, I just thought this deserved its own post!


Friday, December 4, 2009

This weekend is my cousin Courtneys 30th Birthday!!! As kids, she always seemed sooo much younger than me, and I always thought I was the boss! (She is only 2 years younger) In true Courtney tradition, we are having an Old Hollywood Theme party for her birthday! Im sure everyone will be wearing black dresses with feather boas, fur shawls, and goddy jewelry! Being pregnant, I was going to mix it up a bit and be Lucille Ball! Here is my inspiration photo:

Hopefully I can somewhat pull this off...I will be MAKING it, not buying it!

We got all crazy and took Christmas pics!!!

Sunday, November 29, 2009

We took lots of pics of the 3 (or 4 you could say) of us..but also took some of Luke and I, since I hardly have any pregnant pics!

It's beginning to look alot like Christmas!

Saturday I started putting up Christmas decorations, which turned into a 2 day event! I am trying to switch over from red and gold, to a more fun and whimsical red and lime green.

Here is a pic of my tree and my fireplace..we do not use the fireplace, and it probaly really needs cleaned out...but I just decorated around it! I did get in the cleaning mood and scrubbed the bricks though!
I am missing stockings and a tree skirt...Im going to have those made so they all match!

Our tree!

The mantle... I MADE the wreath, and it was easy!! Then I made the bows to go on top of the stocking holders so it all matched and tied together!

I think after the stockings are hung, it will look perfect!

Before Digital Cameras....

Monday, November 23, 2009

Do you remember life before a digital camera??? When I was young I remember having a pink Conair 110 camera...They were the long skinny cameras. I also remember my mom having a Polaroid, the one where the picture printed out right away. Before my digital camera, I had a normal 35mm, until I got it wet swimming with the dolphins! I was down to using a disposable camera in 2006 when my sister got married!! I recently found some disposable cameras and took them in to get developed! Look what I found!

Shelby and Reid!! (sorry Reid, I knew it was you and typed in Rhett)

Kyleigh, me and Adrienne

I think I was telling Kelsey if that bouquet comes her way, she better move on over! Momma is catching that!!

Kristy, I am showing off your pretty dress, not that face your one look at that face! Look how tiny Kelsey is!!!

Here is Kelsey telling Ethan how to put on Adysons shoe!! They are so young! Ethan has the Joey McIntyre hair going on!

Aww..Kelsey and Ethan..not sure where this pic is..maybe my sisters couple shower??

Day 7 of Project Baby Girls Room

Tuesday, November 10, 2009

Im not sure what happened to day 3-6!

The room is looking more and more like a room everyday!

An inside view..remember we had to take the brick off of the walls..

The space to the far left is our new closet! The baby doesn't have a very big closet...Im having issues with that! She is a girl!

Fabric Frustration!!!

Monday, November 9, 2009

Im having a hard time picking a fabric for my baby bedding...
I like the 2 in the middle for sure, but I cant decide between the 2 flower
prints on the side! What do you think??

Day 2 Project Baby Girls Room

Friday, November 6, 2009

Day 2 of working on the new room for Baby Girl! (I promise she will be named soon!)
Concrete was poured today...we had enough left over to widen our driveway. Luke says that I don't know how to park and he is always in the grass, so now he shouldn't have any problems!

This is a pic of the guys taking the brick off of the side of the house...we will reuse this on the outside of the new room, so it matches the rest of the house...

I don't have any pictures of the garage being closed it...thats just not as exciting ot me as this new room and new master closet!!

Baby Girl Room Decor

Wednesday, November 4, 2009

After MUCH thinking, making up my mind, changing it again...this is the fabric I have decided to use in baby girls room. I plan on making my own bedding, with the help of a couple of friends! I wanted something different, but also something that could grow with the baby.
These 3 fabrics will be combined with pink and brown minky dot to make the perfect little bedding for Baby Girl!

Day 1 of Project Build Baby Girls Room

Yippy! Today we (well a crew) started building a bedroom for baby girl!! Since our house is only 2 bedroom (big, but we only have 2 bedrooms!), we needed a 3rd room for the baby! We are also closing in our carport, making it a true garage, and doing some other stuff, including a new roof!

This is our hallway and our bedroom door. To the right of the bedroom door is where the new door will be to go into the new room.

Just some dirt they've dug...

This is where the new room will be. They have to take the brick off off of the house, and use it on the outside of the new room, so our house will match and it won't look like an add on! We will also build a walk-in closet for us in that area, and then turn our current walk in closet into a bigger master bathroom.

We have lots of work ahead of us, but its going to be worth it!!!

A couple of weekends ago, we decided to take a trip to Sea World! We had a was decorated for Halloween and looked great!
My favorite part is the seal lion and seal show! They are such funny animals!
