Bleh I've been sick and getting no time to myself ever. Not sleeping well because Elizabeth won't sleep through the night and Lily gets up at 7:30 every morning.

The ultrasound went great. Jellybaby is measuring on track! Yay! I'll post a picture for you too. Also the heart rate was at 171bpm.

I'm such a fail

So I've been so sick with morning sickness and raising a toddler and a preschool age daughter who is 4 going on 17. Life got away and Tiny Chicken Disease struck the house {aka the common cold. Thanks vlogbrothers for the new fun name for something not fun.

So I'm going to be 9 weeks tomorrow and I just had an appointment {FINALLY} for my first prenatal  visit. However, our dr is a little concerned so he moved the ultrasound appointment from two Mondays from not to tonight. I'm insanely nervous and a little scared and trying to keep myself busy today. I'm so thankful my husband can work from home if needed. I promise how're, I will update on what happened tonight along with start the pregnancy update posts. I've been waiting  for the ultrasound to get the a better estimate of the due date.

Here We Go!

Alright! So I'm finally allowed to tell you guys! We told the family and everyone on facebook. So now it's your turn! I'm pregnant with Jelly Baby #3!

Lily's so excited about another baby again! Elizabeth, well, she doesn't really understand or care. As long as I hold her she's happy lol.

I'm 7 weeks along and we couldn't be happier.

While I was taking the picture for the announcement Lily kept posing fot the camera. She's my little model that's for sure. I wanted to do all but the announcement, from the pictures I took, to be black and white. Mainly for two reasons:

  1. Because I was taught to edit and work with black and white photos first.
  2. Because I thought that the announcement would stand out more.

I had to keep this one she's just so cute out of all the posing she was doing this was one of the cutest things. I loved that I got something she didn't pose for.

Elizabeth was so excited to be outside and playing with leaves that I just had to follow her around and shot the pictures.

This was my favorite picture  of her.

Right As Rain

There are many things happening in our life and I want to touch point on every single on of them but I have no idea where to start.

We've gone through everything I've said before along with a few other things I can't talk about still. I really can't talk about it yet emotionally. I'm not ready yet.

I've also switched the girls' rooms and I'm still working in them so I'll be showing the before, during, and after pictures as I go but it's a slow process for me anymore. I'll explain that at a later date as well sorry. I'll do a separate post on the rooms too.

I've also redid the entry closet! I'm quite proud I did it lol. It's not the best but it works for now at least.

I'm sorry to cut this so short but it's time to go cook dinner.

Officially Back

Ok sorry it took so long to get back into blogging. We dealt with our friend's death but after we were doing better it life got away from us. With my dad still having a possibility of some of his brain bleeding again. Even after the surgery early this year. He's also now having to get surgery on both eyes next month. Along with my mom's Parkinson's getting worse along with her earky onset dementia and early onset Alzheimer's. Closely followed by both girls' birthdays and Halloween. A scary bit where we weren't sure if my husband was going to loose his job or not {he didn't by the way}. Life got insanely busy.

However, I'm back again I swear! I'm back with new ideas and great things to come. I'm going to post a MINIMUM of once a week {mostly Tuesday's} and I'm going be be here I promise.

Talk to you again on Tuesday!

Taking a short hiatus

This weekend we were supposed to go to Tennessee for a kayaking trip but we couldn't find a sitter for the girls so we stayed home.

However,  after a fun time there was a massive storm and our friends called it in early and decided to go home yesterday. As they were getting ready to leave and go home they collided with another boat four were injured but we also lost a dear friend. 

He fell overboard and never resurfaced.  We got the news they recovered him at about 2:30 in the morning. 

He was 39.

You never think about how short life is and how fast it can be taken away until it happens to someone you love.

So I need time to be with our friends and my family. 

I ask everyone who's reading this to please pray for our friends wife. She needs it now more than ever.

Think I'm getting sick

oh man I think I'm getting sick. 

I've been so busy and I still have a ton to do.
 I'm switching the girls' rooms and it's a disaster. On top of that I'm reorganizing and moving around the master bedroom and living room. 

I can't be getting sick!

On another note Elizabeth got her first balloon. 
She absolutely loved it.

Making this quick

I have to make this quick I have 4 kids 4 and under over here at the moment. The video I'm  putting up I recorded this morning before all the kids got here and Lily was down for a nap. Elizabeth and I were hanging out bonding over Dr Horrible's Sing Along Blog.

So Tired But Very Happy

Oh man am I tired I could just pass out here at the keyboard. So excuse me while I ramble and go on and on about nothing. I have no real topic in my mind today sorry.

 Elizabeth woke up four time last night after sleeping through the night the passed few weeks, and the dumpster garbage man woke her up again at 5:30 this morning and she was too scared to fall back asleep poor baby. 

I spent all morning doing chores and laundry. I've been such a bad homemaker. I really have been. 

I got new contacts yesterday! Sad news is my vision has gotten worse though. 

I haven't worn contacts since I was pregnant with Lily, so about four years ago.

Four years! My baby's going to be four!

My other baby is going to be one!

Where has the time gone!

I'm actually on here putting off doing the dishes and I really should get off and go do them. Our pastors might stop by this afternoon and one of Bryan's co-workers is coming over for dinner. So I really should get it done.

I have no idea what to cook at all. 

So I'm getting up and going to go find out.

How I feel today

I'm so tired and I really don't feel up to doing anything at all.

I didn't even want to post this picture let alone actually say anything.

I don't even know why anyone would read my blog. Why would you? If you find anything interesting or weird or whatever just let me know I'm very curious.  

I want to say more but I don't really know what to say. Should I just type and let it flow from there? Well, I guess I usually do that anyways lol. 

I have a huge pile of laundry I need to take care of.  I've been so horrible and put it off for a few weeks or so. Yes, I know "shame!" To be 100% honest I really couldn't bring myself to care. Hey! At least I got pretty much all of it washed I only have 3 more loads and then fold it all. The part I loath with a fires of a thousand evils don't like is to put it all away. 

That actually made me scared as soon as I realized that I didn't care. On top of that I had a panic attack in the middle of the grocery store and I can't do that especially when I'm shopping with the girls. So, I made a doctors appointment.

When I was younger I was diagnosed with depression and severe anxiety and was put on meds to help with that. My mom made me not go back to that doctor and made stop taking them though, because she didn't think I had problems even when I knew I needed it and because I was underage at the time I couldn't disobey. When I hit 'adulthood' I just kept putting it off and putting it off until 9 years after my last appointment with her I'm going back.

I loved this doctor. She would actually sit and listen to me. Talk to me. Not just go with my mom said. I'm so happy she accepted me back as a patient.

Now here's a great idea to deal with problems as well as get a little giggle.

daily dose of cutness

Elizabeth was upset so I thought I would distract her and it worked. Along with giving me something insanely cute.

Blogs keep failing to upload

For some reason whenever I try and post blogs they fail to load when I try to upload them from my phone. It's really annoying the post about the park was supposed to be up on tuesday.

Chilling at the Park

So I'm blogging from the park. I really don't know what I want to actually say to be honest. However, I do know that the smell of one of Bryan's friends' cigarette smoke is disgusting. But I got some cute pictures of the girls and one I kinda like of myself lol.

So I can't think of a title

Yay more pictures! And boo me missing a day sorry! Hey at least I'm only a day late instead of a month right?

So lately Lily's been love triangles and she made a triangle out of her weebles.

Also, she knows how to dress herself but she was being silly and putting her leg through the same leg hole and would laugh. She willingly dressed up in dress up clothes {my little Snow White makes me happy.} 

The one with her and the little boy is so sweet because he refuses to let many people even touch his blanket yet he keeps sharing it woth Lily.

Lastly, the picture of Elizabeth is at my in laws house and was passed out cold. Oh! She's started to sleep mostly through the night too!!

From the Forth of July and with Cousins Never Met Until Now

Wow, that is a long title sorry!

Hey guys sorry this is late I was working on my parents' yard sale and I just haven't had a chance to sit down and type this out and here it 11:06pm I dtill have time left before I lable myself as a lost cause.

Anyway,  my husband Bryan's sister and her family came into town the beginning of July and we had a ton of fun. However, I will not put up all of the pictures I took for their privacy.

The girls have never met their cousins because they have lived in England for the past five years for her husband's work. But they moved back to the states and came up for a visit.

Also, I'll post a couple pictures I took in the car while waiting for Bryan to get out of work of Lily and me.
