Oh my little Ladybug it's been entirely too long since Momma wrote to you! But you've grown into this terrorizing young toddler... or is it grown baby? Who knows? Either way you're still too little and not walking to be a toddler but you are much to big and independent to be called an infant or baby! You're starting to stand on your own for brief moments and I get the feeling that LONG before your first birthday you will be a toddler!! You are honestly the love of my life in a way I could never have anticipated! Before you were born the song that made me cry as I listened to the words was "All I Want For Christmas Is You" by Mariah Carey. It was so true! I know that Mariah was talking to a boyfriend of some sort but those words just stood out to me... they were exactly what I felt when I thought about the fact that if you were a week overdue you had just missed Christmas!
And now I (re)found a song that is song by Evan and Jaron aka Lifehouse called "Crazy for this Girl" and GEEZ again I know that our situation isn't exactly what they're talking about but Ladybug I also know that I'm feeling that crazy for you even if it is a different type of crazy all together! I imagine that you think to yourself "Momma, go away, I got this" and I KNOW you do and I stand back and fight the tears as I watch you figure it out but I just could sit and watch EVERTHING you do and see your gears going and know that you're too smart for your own good... or mine!!
You are now saying "Uh, Oh" and repeating "Ha, Ha, Ha" you know how to shake your head no and this has replaced shaking it yes at all! You officially started to clap and wave bye bye just yesterday. And if you don't feel anybody but me watching you'll blow kisses. But you do it unlike any baby I've ever known! They all do the hand motion and don't actually kiss, but you my little Ladybug, you make the kissy noise and say forget the hand!! It's completely adorable and utterly you!
You are down to one nap a day and I try to make it in the middle of the day or else you're tired at 7/730 and bedtime is between 9 & 10!! That way Momma can sleep in!! LOL I can't go to bed at 7/730 and I just don't wanna get up at 7/730 but I would if I had too!!
Ladybug you are my greatest accomplishment and I can't wait to continue to watch you grow and change into the great woman I can see in my dreams of you! Time has gone so fast and I just know that it's not going to slow down anytime soon!
We just found out you are going to be a cousin soon and I hope that all is well with Lil Baby "A"--We'll have to come up with a better nickname for him/her but for now that will work. And in the next couple of months you'll be a big sister as we are going to be trying to have a little brother/sister for you. I hope you two can be close and be the best of friends! I absolutely love the thought of you helping me teach the baby to talk and all that comes with it! But for now I'm just cherishing me teaching you!!!

The words to the Songs I was talking about!!
Mariah Carey
All I want for Christmas is you-chorus
I don't want a lot for Christmas 
There's just one thing I need 
I don't care about the presents 
Underneath the Christmas tree 
I don't need to hang my stocking 
There upon the fireplace 
Santa Claus won't make me happy 
With a toy on Christmas day 
I just want you for my own 
More than you could ever know 
Make my wish come true 
All I want for Christmas is you 
You baby 

Evan and Jaron
Crazy for this girl-Chorus
Would you look at her
She looks at me
She's got me thinking about her constantly
But she don't know how I feel
And as she carries on without a doubt
I wonder if she's figured out
I'm crazy for this girl

Bad Momma!!

Ok, I know I've said it before that we're pretty AP but today Bub informed me that he is sick of being unable to sleep in our bed because of Ladybug being in there (we have a king bed so plenty big but he can't get into a deep sleep because he's worried he'll roll over on her or something) So I had her take her nap in her crib (instead of the swing like normal) and I've put her to bed in her crib and I'm waiting for her to wake in a few like normal and I'll put her to bed in there again and then go to bed myself. When she wakes up to nurse again I'll bring her to bed with me pushing it further and further each day until she's spending the night in her own room (SCARY, I know) I was doing really well with only letting her stay with me until the sun came up until Bub was home all last week and he wanted to go to bed earlier than Ladybug and I normally do so I would fall asleep in our bed with her before she was asleep enough to move!! When I was pregnant and before this was one of my Never Shall I Ever... and then she got here!! I never would have expected to be so terrified of something so completely normal!!! But.........I am...... You can laugh......I do LOL
Alrighty Internet peeps I'm headed to bed
I'll let ya'll know how my re-training of Ladybug goes!! LOL

5 months

I wrote this on Saturday but haven't had the chance to post it so here it is :)

Dear Ladybug,

You're becoming such a big girl already, it kills me sometimes! You look at your Daddy and I with such awe and wonder and utter amazement that I can't believe you're only 5 months old!!!

You already know so much and are learning so much more!!! I would never have guessed you'd be so close to sitting up and wanting so bad to be standing!!! You have learned so much in the past weeks let alone month! You chatter consistently and constantly (something I know will NEVER stop now ;) LOL) you're rolling both from front to back and back to front but neither right after another... Once you've done 1 you get too pissed to do the other LOL :) so much of your Daddy it's not even funny.

You're getting more beautiful with each passing day and though we're together for every moment I often forget to stop and enjoy how much you've changed already in these past 5 months!

Ladybug please don't hate me for the "no's" that are coming now and will until you're grown. Please see that with each one Daddy and I are simply molding you into a lady. You may not come from much and might not be what everyone expects but you will at least know right from wrong and to me that's what a lady is. Somebody who knows right from wrong and is never too scared to speak about it without conviction!

Ladybug you are my biggest dream come true. No matter what happens or what you become it will all be worth anything and everything to be your Momma... And I thank God each day that he chose ME to be YOURS and YOU to be MINE!!!

Love always,

It's been far too long!!

Sorry it's been so long it's been a hectic couple a weeks!!! Haven't been able to work out so no McFatty Mondays until I'm feeling better. I haven't felt well for a couple of days now, not really sure why or what's going on but I know that I've been napping with Ladybug during the day instead of the usual cleaning/blogging during them :( I'm so exhausted but I'm starting to think it's this gloomy crap-tastic weather we've been having!!! So anyway we have started BLW with the Ladybug her first food was pizza crust LOL But since then she's had steamed green beans, steamed carrots, water (from straws and sippy-cups) and a little ice cream. She's also rolling over consistantly now!! She will go from front to back or back to front but will only roll over once not time after time so if she gets to her belly she just gets mad instead of rolling back over LOL she's definately got her Daddy's patience haha! Tomorrow we have her 5 month pictures when she'll wear her ladybug Gap shirt and a pair of jean shorts and have her bare tootsies showing LOL I'm even gonna paint her toes :-D

Thankful on Thursday

Ok, First of all y'all better be 'thankful' I'm even doing a blog post tonight LOL Just kiddin'! I was all cozied into bed tryin' to get some sleep before getting up 'early' (hey as a SAHM setting an alarm is a sin!!) When...SHIT I didn't blog...and it's Thursday!! Eh it can wait... no...I don't wanna be one of "those" bloggers, I already skipped last week. So what did I do? I started typing up my post on my BlackBerry... which proceeded to loose it... 'bout chucked my phone out the damned window LOL So I got my cozied ass up outta bed and came to do this!
I guess first things first I'm thankful I have a conscience that even when I really don't wanna do something and I know I should it'll harass me 'til I just give in and freakin' do it LOL
Secondly I'm thankful I have a daughter who is not only thriving or surviving she's becoming quite the little chunker!! She is now 15lbs 8oz which is the 90th percentile!!! But only 75th for height and 50th for head circumference (gee not gonna be short and round like her parents or anything is she LOL) P.S. I love our pediatrician and the A.R.N.P. we saw today... no problems with BLW or anything!!!
Lastly for the night I'm thankful that an old (see middle school/early high school) friend is giving me a second chance where I'm not right sure I deserve one with the way things went down... losing her was completely my fault but she's the one who facebooked me wanting to meet up and hang out... so to the Farmer's Market (while her hubby works and mine catches up on his beauty sleep) we will go with her son and my daughter in tow. I think I'm gonna wear Ladybug so that I'm not running over all the innocent bystanders with the stroller that I'm really not good at... especially while looking at stuff LOL

Bad Blogger!!! :)

That's me....bad blogger it's been a week and a half since my last post!!! I'm just gonna blame it on Bub since he was home destroying my house last week! LOL He came home friday and didn't leave again until last night...LATE last night! Now I'm not complaining by any means! I LOVE having my hubby home and being able to show him just how much the Ladybug is growing each day...But (you knew that was coming, right?) he has this habit of walking in the door and stripping down (yup right in front of the door) and then the next morning he rifles through everything in the dark to find what he wants and leaves. This all totally messes up my week!! I couldn't just clean one room a day like I normally do.. NO I had to clean up the tornado my husband had throughout the house... and then came the weekend! Normally our house is C.L.E.A.N. by this point and so I get weekend's "off" too (off cleaning anyways) but this week I shouldn't have taken those free days! Plus yesterday since he was leaving I had to go get groceries for both of us, and pack him and was going to take it to him. So I ran errands all day leaving my Monday-Clean the Living Room routine undone. Then came today... I know, I know LAZY but it was so pretty out I couldn't just stay cooped up so I took Ladybug to the park (I did clean the living room and bathroom so tomorrow I'll just add Kitchen to the Dining Room and I'll be caught up) but my house is still dirty and I'm trying to get ready to have a 10 year old and an 11 year old all summer (part of my errands yesterday and trying to get a plan down part of today) I'm just getting caught on how to do all this and have a clean house and I'm throwing a wrench in it! LOL
I'm going to practice homeschooling by helping my sister Tate, and my cousin... Let's call him East  ;) get ready for the 5th grade. So far I've found a website with some awesome math problems and suggestions and I've bought 2 copies of Double Fudge and Fudge-A-Mania by Judy Blume and also 2 copies of the BFG but have only found 1 of Matilda both by Roald Dahl. After we read and discuss Matilda we are going to watch the movie (which is old enough neither has seen it LOL) Any other Ideas?? We need to work on Math, reading comprehension, and handwriting. Oh and I just learned how to make it e-mail me if someone leaves a comment so I'll now be responding to comments : D 
Thanks to everyone who liked the way I look in a bikini that really helps my self-esteem...especially since 30 day shred isn't going so well anymore. I LOVED it but all the Jumping Jacks and other high impact exercises are really taking their toll on my knees and the push-ups are KILLING my carpal tunnel!!! I can't even do the push-ups anymore. But like I said I'll have the two kids besides Ladybug all summer and we all have season passes to the local theme park so I will literally be walking my but off LOL

I'm getting to bed before Ladybug wakes back up! Nitey Nite!!

A Day Late...But not a dollar short

Sorry I didn't do my McFatty Monday post yesterday!!! This week we're a bit off as Bub is home this week!!! So Today I decided to go ahead and try to do Level 2... big mistake!! I didn't get but a couple minutes in and the exercise they were doing (Walking push-up) KILLED my wrist I can tell it's my carpal tunnel but OUCh even typing this now is hurting!!! So guess I'm supposed to stay on level 1 a bit longer hope that once I'm supposed to do Level 2 I can!! I dunno how else to do this except maybe regular push-ups? Hmm sumthing for me to figure out :) I'm down about a half size and thanks for all the encouragement on me in my bikini!! I want to always be proud of the body God gave me even if I don't like the way it looks... How can Ladybug Love herself if her Momma can't do it? LOL So not much of a post today I'm trying to NAK and Ladybug is being difficult about it LOL

4 months!!!!

"Let them be little,
'Cause they're only that way for a while.
Give them hope, Give them praise,
Give them love everyday.
Let 'em cry, Let 'em giggle,
Let 'em sleep in the middle.
Aw but let them be little"

-Billy Dean "Let them Be Little"

Oh my Ladybug how you've changed!! It's been 4 full months since that cold December night when you were so rudely ripped out of your comfy home that you had decided you were NOT leaving!! Oh how all the other things have changed too! I often look at the incision to the place you once called home and tenderly touch it. Not because it hurts (although every now and then... especially after one of my spring sneezing bouts) but because it reminds me that you haven't ALWAYS been here. There are days when you laugh so hysterically that I can't or at least don't want to remember how my life was before you. But when I see that still healing incision across my gut I remember all the longing I felt to my core to concieve you and then the LONG 9 months we had to wait to finally meet you which seem so short now!!! I know there has to be a God because of you, I had my doubts while we were trying to get pregnant. I knew how good your daddy and I would be at being parents and I was worried; worried I would never get that chance. But apparently God was making sure that you would be here for us and am I ever glad he did!!! Now everything is perfect. No Daddy isn't home much, but we are trying to figure that whole thing out. But know that now and forever he loves you with all of his being... even if he doesn't say it often enough : ) You are still so little in most people's eyes but in mine and everyone who sees you on a regular basis you are not. You are over twice your birthweight and you are a basket of rolls!!! I even have to baby powder your chunky neck to keep it from getting too moist!!! To the world you are "Ladybug" but Ladybug to us you are the world!!!
Please even when you are an angry teenager don't EVER doubt that you are both wanted and loved! I don't know how to express that any other way but to repeat myself all the time.

Tonight you showed Momma your love back! I was playing with you on the floor and you gave the most hysterical laugh, one that had me nearly crying trying to etch that marvelous sound into my brain to be able to pull out at any time in the future that you are being nearly impossible for me. Before tonight you had reserved that full hearted laugh for Daddy but tonight Momma musta been just funny enough. You had tears running down your face from laughing so hard. I wish I had a video camera, I think that will be my next big purchase because I have to have one to be able to remember all these bittersweet firsts that you're going to be having soon! You are SOOO close to rolling from your back to your tummy and I can't wait to see it but also am hoping you'll save it for a weekend so Daddy can share that first with me.

Ladybug you are my first born, my love and as much as I can't wait to share all these "firsts" with you... can you slow it down just a touch?? That's not asking too much is it???

Thankful on Thursday

Wow as easy as it seems like it should be I have a really hard time coming up with new things to be thankful for every week. I feel like it's always the same-o same-o things. (ie my hubby, my babby, and my family)
But this week I found something else to be thankful for, our health. I've had a bit of a scare with my iud today (I had a Mirena placed at my 6 week post-partum appt) I can't feel the strings and I don't have health insurance (or so I thought) still I called my ob/gyn and let them know I felt 'em last month but don't know between now and then when they "moved" or whatever. Come to find out I do have insurance but only for 'family planning' which this is considered YAY so I have an appointment at 845 tomorrow... do you understand what time that means I have to get up??? 630!! I haven't been up that early in over a month when I quit my job!!! UGG but if it means knowing that I'm okay then I'll do what I have to do.
My mom works with disabled children (God bless her... I know I couldn't do it!!!) so each time I take Ladybug for a bit of a show and tell with all the co-workers I come out of there with a new appreciation for Ladybug's health. I hope God knows how thankful I truly am for that!!!!
I'm also thankful I have common sense. In every sense of the word because even though it's called common sense it's becoming less and less common!! Now I'm not gonna get all political because that's a different post entirely but I'm talking that I'm glad I have sense enough in my head to not just buy every little thing I think I NEED. I want to, Dear God do I ever want to. But I know that buying something for $20.00 that Ladybug will only wear ONCE is just silly even if it is an immense sale and that she would be absolutely adorable in it. I wanted to buy an outfit for family pictures the problem being that she will be 6 months 4 days before we have our portraits done. I can't be sure that if I buy a 3-6 month outfit that she will even fit into it anymore but if I buy it in 6-9 will it be TOO big? So I'll just have to buy something that I won't be as upset if it's not in our pictures. But still trying to find ideas for that Big day LOL Bub is wearing a 'golf polo' its black with khaki on each side so as to thin him ;) No idea on what I'll wear or Ladybug either haha
LOL this has been a different sort of post for a Thursday... I'll post my letter to Ladybug in a bit (Grama's Home with Aunt Tate LOL)

Monday, April 12, 2010

FYI: If I'm found dead on my living room floor it was Jillian!!!!!

OMG I shredded. I shouldn't put it in past tense as I've literally only done if for 1 day LOL but I did it, I thought I was gonna die but I'm more worried about looking good in the swimsuit I've already bought (as extra incentive) I'm wearing that thing no matter what size I am so I might as well be proud of the body it's gonna show of LOL. Plus might be able to get Bub to the pool if I go looking like that HAHA.
So then Ladybug was being entirely too crabby and the sun was starting to go down so I put her on and we walked all over town (granted we live in a TINY town) but I did it... in ballet flats at that HAHA
My goal is to get down to a Size 8 which is possible only 2 sizes before December when I'm planning on trying for #2 and then I will do it all over again HAHAHA But that's just a goal and I'm not really gonna be too heartbroken if I don't succeed. As long as I'm eating 'better' and drinking water and being a good example for my children I really don't care about my size... but you might if you see me in my bikini LOL so attached is a picture for everyone to see that I took in my bikini... Those of you with sensitive stomachs are probably better off not looking LOL

So...Not too bad for 17 weeks postpartum right? I said... RIGHT?!?!?! Just kidding I know it's nothing beautiful but I'm trying and that is what matters!!!

Thankful on Thursday

Hmm I'm kinda havin' a rough day so this week might be a little bitta trouble... that's why it's so good to do once a week Right?

I'm truly thankful for Bub!! He would do ANYTHING for Ladybug and I!!
I'm thankful he'll do whatever it takes for US to meet OUR goal of keeping Ladybug outta public schools. But more than anything else I'm thankful that he WANTS to be at home and he calls the shots at his job enough that he gets to leave at noon tomorrow.
I'm thankful for Clearance racks where I found a swimsuit today.
I'm thankful for children's books at Half Price.
I'm thankful for Jenny McCarthy putting a positive spin on the past year of my life (Am reading Belly Laughs and Baby Laughs is next)

I'm thankful for BEAUTIFUL spring days where I can take my 16 weeker for a walk and she doesn't want a jacket on. (To Anyone who might see us on one of our walks I'm really not a bad Mom!!! I try to put a jacket on her but she overheats SO easy that she can't stand it... So yeah I'm wearing a jacket because I'm chilly but my baby isn't wearing one because she's got a 'normal' body temp of 99.1 while mine is a measly 96.8... easy as that!! LOL!!!)

So what is everyone out there thankful for?? I keep seeing hits on my profile but nobody's writing me so hope ya'll enjoy and feel free to write!!

One Year

So much has happened over the past year!!!! One year ago this weekend I was due with our Angel Baby that I had miscarried in August '08 (was due 4/11/09). But then: One year ago today I sat in my grandparents' bathroom in Tucson, AZ waiting for the pink lines on a pregnancy test to appear. I wasn't even completely sure that I should have "wasted" the test as expensive as they were but I did and then became ever so happy that I had!!! I called Bub and he didn't answer so I sat waiting for him to call me back (he was out driving OTR and was in fact visiting with my Papa at the time) he finally called me back and I told him I had used one of our stash of tests. He hesitated unsure of how to go about telling me that it would happen eventually and not to worry, when I blurted out that he needed to come home so we could go to the doctor to see how far along we were! LOL I had been tracking my periods for a while by that point but the March one had just seemed off and my April one was still a week away so I assumed my LMP was Feb 12 2009 which would put us at having a Thanksgiving baby. So a week later we went to the pregnancy crisis center and had to take a test. At the time Ladybug was giving my internal organs a run for their money LOL literally I had diarhea so bad that if I peed I pooped too LOL TMI add to that, I was so nervous that the HPT to be a false positive that I was having sooo many problems peeing in that little cup. So finally I did and the lady said we had 4 minutes for it to show up positive well it did in 45 seconds LOL so I really assumed I was 7 weeks along. Then my dad had a scare that we thought was a heart attack and he didn't know yet but Mom did. So the next morning I called and told him (side note I told him I was telling him then since was already in hospital so if he really did have a heart attack they'd be there asap LOL) On 4/24/09 we went and had a ultrasound and told me I was exactly 6 weeks!! Ooops so much for not telling anybody til later on haha. So we had our Christmas baby after moving back acrossed the country (I couldn't have a baby and not have it around Grama and Grampa let alone Aunt's and Uncle!!!) So in the past year I've driven acrossed the country, transferred Jobs, quit 2 jobs, had an ADORABLE baby girl and learned what it means to be a Momma!!

Thankful on Thursday

I wanna first thank Blair for doing this and really getting me thinking each week what I'm thankful for.

So here goes:
I'm thankful for a family who honestly cares TOO much.
I'm thankful for a baby who loves me even if she says she doesn't.
I'm thankful for friends who trust me enough to know that a 3 year old, a 15 month old and a 3 month old doesn't scare me and in fact it that's another one.
I'm thankful for being able to baby-sit and know that this is the life God wanted me to have all along and that I really feel as though I'm looking into the future as I sit here knowing I should help my friend with her house since all said children are asleep (athankyouverymuch)
I'm thankful it's April Fool's Day no body pulled a prank on me.
I'm really mostly thankful for life and getting to live it to the fullest extent possible.

So that's my mushy gushy Thankful on Thursday post :)

I'm gettin' good at this SAH Momma idea!!!

Last night was rough... I mean R-O-U-G-H!!!! Ladybug has officially outgrown the bassinet and Bub is against completely co-sleeping which means that I, Renee, must let my baby sleep in a room where I am not.... I know :gasp: right no seriously it was a lot harder on me than I would have ever expected!! Probly on Ladybug too as she's used to sleeping with me RIGHT there within arms reach... Every time I'd lay her in her crib she'd wake up so I started trying to use her gloworm to keep her attention off of me but that would only work for the 30 seconds or whatever that the stupid thing works sooo my Momma and I took the Ladybug to Babies "R" Us to no avail they wouldn't order it in to ship to my house and I'm not driving over there if I can buy the same stinking thing at another store and have it tonite!! So long story short I ended up with the Soothe and Glow Seahorse (same idea as the gloworm with 5 minutes of music) the Little Buttons Sweet Scenes Soother (up to 20 minutes of music, glows, and has projector on to the ceiling, and an effing remote-which I have to be in the doorway to use but better than being RIGHT there LOL) and of course a baby monitor... I know what you're thinking "WHAT you didn't already have a baby monitor???" But ya gotta understand I never would have thought I needed it, I mean our house is LITERALLY 732 sq ft... not big enough but I couldn't sleep knowing that the possiblity was there that I wouldn't here my 15 week old baby crying out wanting some of her Momma's nummy milk and getting no answer. Either that or you were thinking "Wow, Lady you really need somethin' better to spend your money on..." which is true I have better things I coulda bought but this was WAY important and if it helps the Ladybug and I sleep it's worth every cent and if Bub says other wise well he knows where my tush is and I'm more than willing to allow his lips to meet it LOL

Anyways so bought all the goodies came home and set 'em all up and then CLEANED. I know, I know I say that all the time... No seriously Bub and my's room is CLEAN, the bathroom is CLEAN, Ladybug's bedroom is CLEAN, all that's left is living room (a few dirty dishes and such) and the kitchen so can both be done tomorrow or I won't have ANYTHING to do all day LOL I love it and I'm so much happier than I was when I was working!!! And I can do whatever whenever which helps me help all my loved ones when they need me which in turn makes me even happier it's like the opposite of a catch-22 what ever that would be LOL

Oh Ladybug's fussy GTG Later

Weekly photos to get ya'll caught up on Ladybugs Growth--AGAIN!!

Whoops just realized I'm a little behind LOL so here they are!!!

I'm Trying!!!

So we got the new washer and I've been doing laundry all day (seeing's how easily it all stacks up when you can only do laundry in the cover of darkness) LOL (long story short: our drain for the washer was plugged up with NO way thru so I would put the washer drain line out the window and let it drain onto the ground but couldn't do it during the day;) haha) But last week I did the Carmen Electra Striptease once and I'm really going to try to do it at LEAST every other day this week!!! I'm also trying to get all my cleaning done today so I don't have to do it ALL week again.
One more thing I'm trying to do...figure out what I'm gonna do with Ladybug at night... it's official she's too big to be sleeping in the bassinet and Bub is against co-sleeping (I used to be too until I think about putting my 3 month old in another room where :gasp: she might not be able to let me know she's hungry) I know I just said that as though I'm messing around but I'm being completely serious. It scares the bejesus outta me!!! Bub says "she's not gonna wither away she's got plenty of meat on her bones" but didn't like that I reminded him that he likes to complain when he's hungy even though he's got more meat on his bones than Lexy or I will ever have!!! I just don't know how people can do it. I've even thought about disassembling her crib and setting it up in our room. Seriously I don't know what to do!!! Right now she sleeps in the bassinet until the sun comes up and then I let her sleep with me... I know I know that's horrible for her... but she likes it and I like being allowed to sleep past 6 in the morning! Please if you have any suggestions lemme know!!!

Sunday again

I hate Sundays!!! I guess I should understand that Bub leaving on Sunday's is just a fact from now on but it still hurts that he's gonna be gone and miss the next 5 days of mine and Ladybug's lives. I don't like the idea that it's her and I and when he's off working we can talk on the webcam but at the same time this job is the reason that it can be just her and I and I don't have to work.
I'm having some major issues with Nickel she took $20 out of my money claiming she thought it was Mom's and that she needed it for gas then she took the $100 that was on the fridge for Jordon to be able to finish the upstairs bathroom. She claimed MANY times that she would bring it back but never has. She also broke down the Neon so she had to borrow the Journey which is where my money was when she took it. So she was supposedly taking that money to get gas and groceries then last night she went drinking and went to Ames Friday night so I really have no simpathy for her seeings how all the money could be going to fixing her car which she's now completely without since Mom will need her own car tomorrow and I'm not giving up my car :)
Oh well Sorry for my rant I'm just not having a lovey dovey type of day LOL
Ok I'm gonna go and watch 16 and pregnant and remind myself how good I have it hahaha

Spring Break :)

Sorry it's been so long... been at my parents' house for almost a week takin' care of it and my 10 year old sister Tate. Been pretty uneventful except I'm VERY excited... I made lunch today while Tate played with Ladybug... I know oooh aaah, right? Actually it was I made fried chicken , mashed potatoes, corn and country gravy and it was GOOD I even got a compliment from Bub (the cook in our house)he was surprised that it was done as he saw I hadn't cut in to any of them...then he tasted and said it was sooo good he didn't even put hot sauce on it....WOW that's sayin' something folks!! My southern husband felt that MY fried chicken was good enough to eat without COMPLETELY obliterating the flavors I had put there!! I am so ecstatic you have NO idea! Well, after this post ya might LOL
That was my Saturday
Wednesday Tate and I took the Ladybug to the mall which went ok nothing too exciting except I carried her in the meitai for a lot of the trip but for some reason she hates the upstairs bathrooms at Valley West which kinda makes me laugh.
Other than that our spring break hasn't been anything but another week...
Oh last night bub and I were watching American Loggers on Discovery Channel and each time a commercial for Life (their new mini-series that premieres this weekend) Ladybug would intently watch it was the CUTEST thing I've ever seen!! So she might just be a  nature lover un-like her Momma haha
Alright gonna check on my man as he's workin' on his truck out in the garage and Tate's downstairs somewhere. Have a great weekend and I'll type to ya soon :)

TRUE Love has found me!!

I LOVE Mr. Clean Magic Erasers. Haven't tried the bigger and better yet and I already knew that these worked on crayon and such so I also knew that one day I'd have to keep them on hand. What I didn't know was I needed them now or the fact that they would clean dried blood off my walls. Eww right? But they do I'm most of the way done cleaning the hall and I'm amazed have been since the first swipe. Only bad thing is I'm already on my second one and might need to start a third :( but the blood is gone!! Will have to buy more for our bedroom so our house can be done with this. I've been locking Doc in his kennel and only let him out to go outside. I'm feeding and watering him everything IN his kennel so he can't tear it open as bad and we can get it scabbed over once and for all.

So you can all pick your jaws up off the floor I'm still with Bub and always will be LOL

I also LOVE my meitai carrier still getting used to it though I'll be really excited when my ring sling gets here because Ladybug is wanting more of a cradle hold and the meitai can't do that but when she's in the mood to look around she loves it nearly as much as I do!!!

Add Babywearing to this AP Momma!!

My new meitai carrier will be here this afternoon!! And our solarveil ring sling either tomorrow or Friday!!! I'm so stoked (yes I just said STOKED!!!) I know it's middle of March in Iowa and we're already starting the flooding crap so a Solar Veil you ask... well besides being a UV blocker it's also a lighter weight fabric and with the Ladybug already being such a warm body like her Daddy I can't imagine having a moby or any of the others I've read are warm!! I can't wait!!
So I'm really in to AP (attachment parenting) not that I decided to be I read about it and after thinking about it that's just where my beliefs on raising the Ladybug are... granted there are some differences. I don't cloth-diaper (I don't have a washer right now so that's a GOOD thing) I had an epi for labor (and LOVED it LOL) I'm pretty sure if we have a boy he will be circumsized (which isn't actually attachment parenting but a lot of AP'ers are also anti-circumcision) And lastly I'm pretty sure we might be spankers but that will come with time more than likely that will be a "threat" taken care of by Bub so I'll be one of those "just you wait until your dad gets home" type of moms...which is ok with me.

My House=Murder Scene

Ok so not really but it sure looks like it as you walk down the hallway. Both sides have blood splatter all the way up them and you half expect to see someone from CSI standing in the bedroom, but I'm telling you Bub, the Ladybug, the boys and I are all fine... except when the boys were playing the other day Sarge musta gotten Doc's ear just a little to hard and (here's where my research comes in) since dog's ears are vascular they BLEED!!! To make matters worse once a perfect little scab covers the problem he shakes his head flinging said scab and blood all over my house. I've tried just telling him not to shake his head but it seems to me that is like saying don't itch when talking about head lice or something... IMPOSSIBLE!!! So I've tried multiple times to clean the blood off my hallway walls to no avail :( I am outta ideas here people so I did what any sane 23 year old woman does... I googled that shit. Some lady says her dogs tail bleeds all the time and swears by the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser so when the hubs and I go to town, I'm just gonna haveta pick me up some and we'll see. Until then the poor Docburt is in his newly acquired kennel (he's trained to be out but I'm so damn sick of the blood I paid $50 for one!!) and Sarge is sad because his brother and bestie isn't able to play :(

On a good note my car now has airbags and seat belts YAY And Bub made it home last nite... not that I've seen him AT ALL. When we got home last night it was after midnite so we went straight to bed and when I got up this morning and was walkin' around gettin' the Ladybug dressed I realized I heard Justin in the living room so I gave Bub a good ration of shit seeing's how I was walking around in a tanktop and chonies!! O well I'm sure Justin's seen a lot better lookin' than me and that includes while I'm nursin' the Ladybug and Bub threatens to gouge his eyes out if he looks at my boobs (this always makes me laugh but also makes me feel good that Bub doesn't want anyone else to see my body... I think that's a good thing LOL)

O well g2g Ladybug is wakin' up from her nap :o)

More Braggin' and a little downside :)

So have I told ya yet that I totally love being a SAHM? Oh I have??? LOL Well today's reason for the obvious....I put the baby to sleep and showered when I got out (and the "white noise" stopped) she woke up for a little snack so I fed her and put her in her swing to play while I did my hair... did you hear me I straightened my own hair!!!! Ok so it's not as good as when Michelle did it but it's also not a big frizzy mess so I'll take it LOL

 So whatta ya think? I also have cinnamon rolls in the oven for the Ladybug and I (ok so just for me since she can't actually eat them yet :o)  haha) Wowza I love my life.....

Except for this one thing I have to talk to my sister (Tate) about stealing. She had my diamond ring this morning and Mom found it so I get to play like I don't know Mom has it because she doesn't know Mom just swiped it back luckily because then Tate was all freaking out that she had lost her ring and she wanted to wear it to school. So I'm really glad Mom found it first but I'm not excited to have to have this talk with my 2nd outta 2 sisters. Not exactly sure how my parents changed over the years where they have both thought it's ok....I remember when I was little, like 3 or 4, and I took some of the flower heads that pop off the silk flowers, my reason being there was no tag. When we got out to the car Mom noticed and made me take them back in and apoligize for stealing. I don't remember ever stealing anything afterwards, but I dunno frustrates me a little that they both have thought it's ok to do. But then again like Bub said.... Not our kids we just have to make sure that the Ladybug and her siblings all understand that it's not ok...Which I think I'm gonna use against Tate. The whole I don't know if I want Ladybug around you if you're going to be doing bad things like this, hopefully that will cure her of this.

Anyways gonna go eat my cinnamon rolls TTYL

Now from now on I'll only do the weekly ones but had to get ya'll up to date

11 weeks

Just a little smile from the ladybug... these are her 11 week pictures :o) Thanks Mom

I'll add all her other weeks pics in a minute so you can see how she's grown!!

OMG It's been FOREVER!!!

Kay so I'm totally sorry that it's been so long since I updated!! Lots has happened since I last wrote you!! I'm now officially a SAHM!! YAY!!! Bub gotta new job in which he makes more now than both of us were!! Add to that the fact that my childcare rates were increasing on the 1st of the month makes it so my bring home after gas to work and daycare was $75.00 a week...seriously... less than a dollar an effin' hour so I made my friend mad at me because I just up and quit. Didn't give a two week notice like a good human being. But the thought of going back after all that's happened (that's a story for another day) I would cry every night trying to get the Ladybug ready for bed and all her stuff gathered to make our mornings go a little smoother. So this week has been a major learning process. I've had to re-create a schedule for the Ladybug and I which messes up the poochies schedule too. We've had to learn to get by with Daddy being gone all week which doesn't really concern Ladybug yet since she's still pretty Momma oriented (being breastfed will do that to a kid lol). I'm learning how to not spend 10 hours a day on facebook with a child hooked to my boob so with all this I've gotten on eBay and am getting a Mei Tai and a pouch sling so that the Ladybug and I can get some major housecleaning done. I want to have the house sparkling by the time Bub gets home so he can see that we've made the right choice in me being home and that way our house can be clean to invite some fam or friends over without 'em being embarrassed by our pig sty!!

I let my mom take Ladybug the other day while I ran to Target to get my new spring wardrobe. Was pretty interesting considering I felt as though I'd left my newborn (even though she's not "technically" a newborn anymore) in the car. And Ladybug got to go see her Great Nana :o)

That's something else the Ladybug is nearly 3 months old!!!!! OMG she's been here for nearly a quarter of a year!!! Life is so strange I remember all the bad things from her labor still but they are pushed way back and Jordon nearly had me convinced to start trying for #2 already!!! Eeekk! But rest assured it won't happen for a while... I want to start trying around Ladybug's 1st birthday so then I'll have 2 under 2 which is still scary, but not as bad as 2 under 1!!!! I want the Ladybug and her brother or sister to be best friends since they really won't have any school mates besides each other and any homeschool groups we join.

So right now the Ladybug is napping we had a busy morning of Wal-mart. We got groceries and the stuff that Bub has decided he needs next week to make it all go a little smoother. The boys are laying in their normal respective spots... Doc on the couch with Ladybug on the floor in front of him and for some reason Sarge has taken to laying in the back hall not really sure but hey he's being good so I won't dis him mmmkay?

All right I'm gonna go work on the said pig sty while all my "children" sleep LOL

Interesting Test

Left Brain Right Brain

49% 51%

You are more right-brained than left-brained. The right side of your brain controls the left side of your body. In addition to being known as right-brained, you are also known as a creative thinker who uses feeling and intuition to gather information. You retain this information through the use of images and patterns. You are able to visualize the "whole" picture first, and then work backwards to put the pieces together to create the "whole" picture. Your thought process can appear quite illogical and meandering. The problem-solving techniques that you use involve free association, which is often very innovative and creative. The routes taken to arrive at your conclusions are completely opposite to what a left-brained person would be accustomed. You probably find it easy to express yourself using art, dance, or music. Some occupations usually held by a right-brained person are forest ranger, athlete, beautician, actor/actress, craftsman, and artist.

Your complete evaluation follows below:

Your left brain/right brain percentage was calculated by combining the individual scores of each half's sub-categories. They are as follows:

Your Left Brain Percentages

67% Verbal (Your most dominant characteristic)

34% Logical

27% Sequential

25% Symbolic

22% Linear

0% Reality-based (Your least dominant characteristic)

Your Right Brain Percentages

36% Fantasy-oriented (Your most dominant characteristic)

34% Random

32% Nonverbal

30% Holistic

24% Intuitive

19% Concrete (Your least dominant characteristic)

What Do These Percentages Mean?

Low percentages are common in the Brain Type Test and are not indicative of intelligence. Instead, medium to high scores (30 - 50%) are desireable, as they show an ability to utilize a processing method without an abnormal reliance on it. Special focus should be paid to highly dominant (50% or above) or highly recessive (0 - 30%) methods, as they tend to limit your approach when learning, memorizing, or solving problems.

If you have Highly Dominant characteristics, your normal thinking patterns will naturally utilize these methods. Conscious effort is required to recognize the benefits of other techniques. Using multiple forms of information processing is the best way to fully understand complex issues and become a balanced thinker.

If you have Highly Recessive characteristics, your normal thinking patterns naturally ignore these methods. You may only consider these under-utilized techniques when "all else fails," or possibly not at all. It is important to recognize the benefits of all of your brain's capabilities in order to become a balanced thinker.


Left Brain Categories

Verbal Processing

Verbal processing is a method used by the left hemisphere to process our thoughts and ideas with words. For example, through verbal processing, a left-brained person giving directions may say, "From this point continue east for two miles and turn north onto Bellevue Road. Continue north on Bellevue Road for seven miles and turn west on Main Street". With verbal processing, exact, logical directions are given in a very sequential manner compared to a right-brained person who, in giving the same directions, would use more visual landmarks.

Your Verbal Analysis

You are a highly verbal person. Using this method you process your thoughts and ideas with words. You use exact, technical logic for the descriptions of your thoughts and seldom use illustrations. If giving directions, you would say, "Continue two miles east on Court Street and turn north onto Jefferson Street" because, to you, this is the clearest way to get the information across.

Logical Processing

Logical processing is a method that is used by the left hemisphere to take information piece by piece and put it all together to form a logical answer. When information is received through reading or listening, the left hemisphere will look for different bits of information that will allow it to produce a logical conclusion. This aspect of the left hemisphere is what aids you in solving math problems and science experiments.

Your Logical Analysis

When processing information using this method, you may consider the information before you and produce a logical answer, or you may tend to go with your gut. You may discover that you can "guess" your way through S.A.T. questions about as accurately as you can deduce them. It is important that you nurture your ability to use logic whenever it is needed, but do not neglect other methods of processing information if you hit a logical roadblock.

Sequential Processing

Sequential processing is a method used by the left hemisphere for processing information. The information that is received is processed in order from first to last. Information is processed in a systematic, logical manner. Through sequential processing, you can interpret and produce symbolic information such as language, mathematics, abstraction, and reasoning. This process is used to store memory in a language format. Activities that require sequential processing include spelling, making a "to-do" list, and many aspects of organization.

Your Sequential Analysis

You show moderate ability to organize information sequentially. You are capable of processing information you receive in a systematic, logical order from first to last. However, at times you will process information you receive quite randomly, or may give it only a semblance of order. You are probably an average mathematician and speller, and may or may not enjoy tasks such as making "to-do" lists.

Symbolic Processing

Symbolic processing is a method associated with the left hemisphere that is used for processing the information of pictures and symbols. The majority of functions associated with academics involve symbols such as letters, words, and mathematical notations. This process is what aids you to excel in tasks such as linguistics, mathematics, and memorizing vocabulary words and mathematical formulas.

Your Symbolic Analysis

You have the ability to process the information of symbols at times, but you may need to first view the real object before you can understand what you are trying to process. For example, in solving math problems it occasionally helps you to "draw out" the problem, which allows you to better understand it through visualization. At other times you do not need visualization to aid you in forming your answers.

Linear Processing

Linear processing is a method by the left hemisphere to process information. In this process, the left brain takes pieces of information, lines them up, and proceeds to arrange them into an order from which it may draw a conclusion. The information is processed from parts to a whole in a straight, forward, and logical progression.

Your Linear Analysis

You tend to have difficulty in processing data in a linear manner. When processing information you tend see the whole picture first and work your way backwards, filling in the pieces as you go. The information you process is not done in a straight, progressive manner, but may take different paths as you start with an assumption and take different paths to discover the threads that lead you to that assumption. Seeing the big picture at the beginning of the process is a necessity for you if you are to understand additional information. When given a task, instead of naturally following directions in a linear fashion, you tend to feel the need to know "why" you are doing something or else you may have difficulty with it.

Reality-based Processing

Reality-based processing is used by the left hemisphere as a method for processing information with a basis on reality. This processing tool focuses on rules and regulations. An example of this would be how a left-brained person would completely understand the repercussions of turning in a late assignment or failing a test. A left-brained person also usually easily adjusts to changes in their environment.

Your Reality-based Analysis

The information you process may lack a basis on reality, but it does open the door to creativity. You do not show much focus for rules and regulations and do not adjust well to change in the environment. In fact, upon experiencing change in the environment, it spurs you to try to change it yourself instead of adjusting to it. Whenever you become emotionally involved in project you are more likely to learn and succeed.


Right Brain Categories

Fantasy-oriented Processing

Fantasy-oriented processing is used by the right hemisphere as a method for processing information with creativity. It focuses much less on rules and regulations than the processing method of a left-brained person. Due to the fantasy-oriented processing mechanism of a right-brained person, they do not adjust well to change. Instead of adapting to the change in the environment, a right-brained person attempts to change it back to the way they liked it. But fantasy-oriented processing also provides the advantage of creativity to right-brained individuals, and since emotion is integral of the right side of the brain, anything a fantasy-oriented person becomes involved in emotionally will aid their ability to learn.

Your Fantasy-oriented Analysis

You have the ability to use both creativity and reality to process the information you receive. This is a unique gift that allows you to both focus on rules and regulations but to also act with creativity. You are able to adjusting to change, even though you might not like it, and you can become emotionally involved in your work if it interests you.

Random Processing

Random processing is a method used by the right hemisphere for processing information. The information that is received is processed without priority. A right-brained person will usually jump from one task to another due to the random processing by their dominant right hemisphere. Random processing is, of course, the opposite of sequential processing therefore making it difficult for right-brained individuals to choose to learn in sequence. In order to overcome this, a right-brained person may want to attempt to learn sequence by using colors since the right hemisphere is sensitive to color. For example, you may want to associate the first step with green, the second step with blue, and the last step with red. Consistently using the same sequence will allow you to see that this strategy can be applied to many tasks involving sequence.

Your Random Analysis

You have some ability to process data randomly. You are at times able to make "leaps of logic" and discover unique things by thinking "outside of the box." However, you may tend to ignore your random processing thoughts unless you are desperate for a solution. It is important you recognize this skill as not grasping at straws, but a viable way to discover new ways of approaching a problem.

Nonverbal Processing

Nonverbal processing is a method used by the right hemisphere to process our thoughts with illustrations. Reliance on this method is why it is occasionally difficult for right-brained people to "find the right words" in certain situations. A right-brained person cannot just read or hear information and process it, but first must make a mental video to better understand the information they have received. For example, through nonverbal processing, a person giving directions may say, "Continue going straight until you see a big, red-brick courthouse. At the courthouse turn right, and go down that street for a couple of miles until you se a gray stone church which will be on your right. Straight across from the church is the road to the left you need to take." With nonverbal processing, the directions that are given are extremely visual compared to the exact, sequential directions that would be given by a left-brained person.

Your Nonverbal Analysis

When processing your thoughts and ideas, you use tend to use both illustrations and words. When giving directions, you probably use both visual illustrations such as, "keep going until you see a McDonalds on your right; then turn left at the Home Depot", and technical terms such as, "travel for two miles and turn east onto First Street."

Holistic Processing

Holistic processing is a method used by the right hemisphere to process information. The information is processed from whole to parts. A right-brained person, through holistic processing, is able to see the big picture first, but not the details that accompany it. A strongly holistic person may often find that prior to listening to a lecture given by an instructor, they must first read the chapter so that they better understand what the lecture is about. This function is also what provides to you your visual spatial skills. It also aids in tasks such as dancing and gymnastics. Through holistic processing, memory is stored in auditory, visual, and spatial modalities.

Your Holistic Analysis

You show some ability to process data holistically, starting with the whole and working backwards to find the parts, which inform the whole, to form your conclusion. When you process information in a linear manner you are able to start with the parts and work up to form the whole. It is important to be comfortable with both methods, as both are equally necessary in the learning process.

Intuitive Processing

Intuitive processing is a method that is used by the right hemisphere to process information based on if it "feels" right or not. For example, a right-brained person may choose an answer on a test because they had a "gut" feeling and often they will be correct. Another example of this is how a right-brained person will know the correct answer to a math problem but will not understand the procedure of how they arrived at the correct answer. A right-brained person will usually have to start with the answer and work their way backwards in order to be able to see and understand the parts and process that create the whole.

Your Intuitive Analysis

When processing information, at times you are able to go with your "gut" instincts. At other times you may doubt your instincts, or prefer to put information together piece by piece to form your conclusion. You should be careful not to ignore your intuition, but at the same time do not solely rely on it.

Concrete Processing

Concrete processing is a method associated with the right hemisphere that is used for processing things that can be seen or touched. It processes much of the information you receive from real objects. For example, a right-brained person is not just satisfied that a mathematical formula may work, but will want to know why it works. A strongly concrete person often finds it easier to solve a mathematical problem by "drawing it out" because it allows them to visualize it. The more a concrete person can visualize something the easier it is for them to understand it.

Your Concrete Analysis

When you process information you have received, the real object is not important to you. You do not have to use the real object to make sense of what you have processed. For example, if solving a math problem you do not have to "draw out" the problem in order to find or understand the answer, and you do not have to visualize something to understand it. However, this also means you often neglect the physical information provided by a concrete example. In other words, you may miss the forest for the trees, trying to deduce something complex when the answer is plain to see.

So technically I was never infertile just had to wait for my shot to be outta my system but there was a long time that I was really concerned and was trying to get pregnant and couldn't and then I finally did and lost that baby. I just know SOME of the sorrow these women feel each month when Aunt Flo arrives.

It's only Thursday and it has been one of the longest weeks EVER!! Ladybug is getting better and Bub has class tonite...
Sarge's whining is driving me CRAZY if Ladybug has socks at all in her life I'll be surprised!
Today DHS showed up at the daycare and we got the talkin to for being outta ratio which could have been a lot worse! But Bub's lucky that I'm breastfeeding cuz all this craziness could cause me to drink... LOL I'm not a big drinker at all!!

LONG Monday

So as if Mondays aren't both too long and too difficult...I went into work 1/2 hour early and stayed 1 and 1/2 late!! Add that to being off all last week and playing assistant director (I'm getting promoted next month when we open a second center and the current one being out with her two-year-old who has mono) and bam you have one tired Momma on your hands!! So when the fam finally got home tonite I had Bub make dinner while I hopped in the shower since Ladybug was still asleep, then supper was complete so did that. Ladybug woke from her peaceful slumber within her car seat so she had a meal then her bath. Sent the hubby to bed while I blog and hold our beautiful little girl!!

Funny additional note I wear my hair in a ponytail EVERYDAY so after my shower I just brushed it out straight to put up after a Ladybug then woke up and looked at me like I was an alien as I talked to her...It was as if she was saying you sound like my Momma but lady who are you cuz you don't look like her!! LOL

Alright going to watch a lil CSI and eat my oatmeal cookies before bed
Night Ya'll :P

Ladybug's Picture

Isn't that a picture perfect Ladybug???
PS She's sick LOL

Hello To All

Hey to anybody who has accidentally stumbled upon this blog. I'm really just starting this as a way to document all the important happenings as my baby girl grows up. I'm not going to use our real names just some nicknames to help keep our identities safe :D
Ladybug is now 6 and a half weeks old and she was a long struggle to get Bub and I really appreciate her. This week has been especially tough as she caught both RSV and Brochiolitis at the daycare. I'm supposed to go back on Monday but the doc wants us to wait until the middle of the week which kinda puts me in a predicament...we need the money but if Ladybug doesn't heal up all the way I'm gonna miss even more work as she gets sick more and more.
Right now we are having to do a neb treatment every 4 hours at least and she's still having a hard time breathing.  I have her sitting in the stroller beside me right now so the pups will stay outta her face since they often love her too much to let her sleep on their own levels LOL
Mmmmkay so I guess I should tell ya that I'm a 23 year old who has been married to Bub for three years and dated him for three before that...yep high school sweethearts. I'm an old fashioned lady who would rather stay at home and home school our babies than send 'em off to have someone else raise 'em. I truly love children (they don't even have to be mine) and I don't understand why people would decide to have children and WANT to send them somewhere else for 9-12 hours a day (no offense just my personal opinion)
I'm probly gonna gross ya'll out sometimes and whatever but I like to say what's on my mind (hence the reason this is literally a stream of conscience and will prolly offend at least a few people)
Yesterday I got my IUD I'm a little concerned since we had to try for 2 years to get the Ladybug but that was with the shot which says in all the information that it can take 12-18 months to be outta your system. I have decided I want the babes to be less than two years apart so this winter we'll prolly start trying for #2 :D I know what you're thinking... Lady you just had a baby ripped outta your abdomen 6 weeks ago and you're already thinking when you're gonna do it again??? But yeah I don't want Ladybug to be an only child and I don't want a big age gap between 'em so I have to think of these things...
Alright for now I'm gonna let ya'll go so that I can clean the house a touch before the Ladybug wakes and needs a treatment and a little Boob (ps I'm still nursing her) Later Ya'll
