Sorry for the lack of postings, Maddox and I spent the week visiting his Grandmas and Grandpas and Aunt and Uncle. We had a really nice time. My mom and I went garage saleing on Saturday morning and scored an entire new wardrobe for Maddox for all of $17! And, it's super cute stuff that I love! So, that made me really happy. I came home to a sick husband who is hopefully feeling better today so that I don't have to send him to the Dr. which he would do kicking and screaming. I'll post more again later, just wanted to update real quick!
What is it with me and my poor toes!?! Remember the story of me running my big toe over with a vacuum cleaner? Not one of my finer moments.
Today, I kicked Maddox's riding fire truck and completely broke off my ENTIRE small toe nail on my right foot. It's still attached on one side, and it really hurts!!
I'm not going to take a picture, though because that would be admitting you that I have the same toe nail polish on as I did back in July and as seen in the picture then, it didn't look so hot, so let your imagination run wild.
Looks like my sister-in-law Nicole and I have about the same luck with our toes! As seen here and here. Between both of us in the last few months we've hurt 4 of our 20 toes! Let's not keep this up, k?
We get to find out if the baby is a boy or a girl in 3 weeks!!! If you were to ask Kyle he would tell you it was a waste of time because, well, it's a girl (which, I think, too, but I'm completely aware that it might be a boy, too, which, obviously, would be completely fine because I love boys and, yes, Kyle will be fine with it, too, he just knows it's a girl.) I think that was the most poorly constructed sentance ever, oh well. I have an appt. today and I should be able to schedule the ultrasound, I'm SOOOOO excited!!!!
Apparently, Maddox thought there was a party going on without him somewhere out there last night, so he decided he couldn't be left out of whatever it was. Kyle and I were awake until after 1am this morning because Maddox would not fall asleep. Now, you have to understand something about Maddox, he always goes right to bed without hardly a fuss and is usually asleep within about 30 min. or so. So, this was a VERY rare thing for him. We were out a little later than usual at the church (Kyle had youth group and I had a baby shower to attend), but were home and he was in bed at 9:30pm. He usually goes to bed at 8:30, so really not that bad at all.
We soothed him just a couple of times, made sure he wasn't thirsty or hungry, but for the most part was left entirely alone, in his bed jabbering up a storm until well past 1am. He wasn't crying, a few times he would fuss to get attention, but talked to himself and "sang" songs to Pooh Bear.
Let's just say, I'm hoping we don't have a repeat tonight.
I seem to have dropped off the face of the earth! Well, actually, I've just been finally feeling better and have been getting this done around here! Wow, amazing, huh? I don't feel fabulous in the morning, but I feel better than I have in months, so I still can get stuff done.
I had a nice relaxing weekend with my boys, so that was very nice, too. I cooked my first "real" dinner in a long time. London broil with a scrumptious marinade I found at foodnetwork.com, boiled red potatoes with a lemon butter sauce I made up and grilled red peppers. YUMMO. Our dinners of late have been lots of Annie's mac & cheese and spaghetti. It was nice to have a real meal.
We finally have some news about the house, but still not a whole lot. The buyer stopped by the house yesterday and said that her lawyers in TX would have the money here within 30 days. What does that mean for us? More limbo! But, we really want to sell the house to her because of the price she offered and such we feel like it's the best option. Hopefully, we can set a close date for 30 days out and she can keep us posted on news from them so that we will for sure know when we can move. It's not too bad, I'm just packing up stuff we don't use very often, (we seem to have a lot of that!) and living simply. I'm really praying that the money comes through so we can move mid-Oct!
That's my update...off to play with my boy and get some stuff done around here.
Now that I'm 13 weeks and starting to show a bit, I thought I'd post my first belly picture for your enjoyment. The picture on the left is me at 13 weeks this time around. The one on the right with me in the pink was me at 15 weeks when I was pregnant with Maddox.
We still have yet to hear any new news about the house. The lady purchasing it hasn't been able to touch base with her concrete guy, so, we still sit in limbo. What a fun place to be, let me tell you! Sooner or later, I'm sure we'll move forward. We're supposed to close on Wed. but I'm guessing that's not happening at this point. God really is trying to teach me patience, I'm quite sure of it.
I felt great for 3 days, and then relapsed for a half day (threw up in the morning), a full day (threw up twice) and then felt mediocre today. I'm having more good days then bad days, so that's good!
Maddox was sicky for a couple of days and so was quite grumpy, but was back to his delightful normal self today, thank goodness! Too bad it had to be during my sick days, I wasn't very pleasant, I felt bad being grumpy.
That I'm 13 weeks pregnant today and have been puke free for 5 days and nausea free for 3!!! I have FINALLY turned a wonderful beautiful gorgeous corner and am truly the most energetic crazy person around this house. I have motivation to get stuff done. FINALLY!!!! Thank you Lord!
