Remember Us???

You would think that after a month of not blogging I would have something great to blog about right? Well not much is going on in our lives but I'll update you all on the past couple of months.

Just after Thanksgiving is when the morning sickness kicked in. This meant a messy house, an onery Ava, a hungry husband, and one demanding wife and mom!! I layed on the couch for nearly two months and stressed about all that was going wrong! One day I forgot to feed Ava lunch until about 3pm and then I put her to bed without dinner. Oops. I felt so horrible that I called my mom and tattled on myself. What does a grandma do??? She makes me feel so guilty by saying stuff like, "Poor thing" and tells me to go wake her up and feed her. So I woke Ava up in the middle of the night and the poor thing ate like there was no tomorrow and then she zonked!!

Well now that I am back to 100% I can clean the house, entertain Ava, make dinner, and be a more pleasant person....Ummm well it hasn't quite worked out that way. Christian was really good to clean the house when I was sick and I love him for it BUT the floors didn't get mopped and the counters didn't always get wiped. You know what I mean right? The house can be clean but you feel like it is still dirty because those little (sometimes big) things weren't done. So now I am stressed over trying to catch up on stuff but I'm not doing anything about it!! I REALLY need to get on my hands and knees and mop the floor (the mop just won't do the job) but I dread it!!

ALRIGHT...I'm done complaining! It feels good to get that off my chest. BUT things are really great for us right now. I am feeling so much better and now I can start gaining weight instead of losing it!! I can eat food!!!! I got to see the baby last week and he/she was SO CUTE moving it's arms and legs!!

Ava is getting cuter by the day! She is talking liking crazy and never ceases to amaze me by the things she says. Yesterday I put her shirt on and it got stuck on her head. She didn't like it and said in a frightened voice, "Scary, it's dark in here!" I don't know where she learned that the dark is scary but it's too early for that!!! Ava loves coloring and her favorite colors are pink and purple. We have a big box of crayons and her pictures always end up being different shades of pink and purple. When she is done coloring she says, "It's pretty, I like it". It's fun to see her have prefrences for colors.

Ava gets to sleep in a big girl bed within a month and we are excited to make that change. We want to make the change now so she doesn't associate it with the baby. I don't want her to feel like she is being moved to a new bedroom because the baby gets her room!

Ugh...I'm sorry to bore you all with my babblings (is that a word?). I wish I felt like posting pictures but I don't so this will have to do! I hope to hear from you all and I'm trying my hardest to catch up on your blogs!

YAY! Welcome back. I missed reading your babblings!

The Hulls said...

I'm glad your back! And I'm glad you're feeling better too! The first few months of sickness are awful.

Nicole said...

I have put Nathan to bed without feeding him as well. Luckily they are little and won't remember it! If you ever need a break you can bring Ava over here. Good luck with mopping the floor. I don't think I would have had the energy to do that while I was pregnant.

Cyd said...

Thanks for entertaining me today Nichole!

Aubrey said...

Oh I am so sorry, but glad you are feeling better.
Good luck!

Don't stress on the house. Someone told me recently that trying to keep the house clean while you have young children is like trying to nail jello to wall! Ha ha ha. I've given myself the chance to relax a bit on what a clean house is because I want to enjoy my kids being kids- they grow up so fast!

Glad you're feeling better. It was fun scrapbooking the other night. :0)

Ava is so stinkin' funny! (Its dark in here) I love it. And not that you asked for my opinion but the fact that you are doing the big girl bed NOW is the BEST idea. My friend did it when her baby was BORN and her 3 year old seriously went NUTS. It was just WAY too much. I realize all kids handle things differently but why cause more stress...so....good job mommy! LOL!

Shayner and Ern said...

I hope you feel better! It sucks being sick over the holidays!!

Adam and Brynn said...

Yay! I'm glad you are back! :) And I'm glad you are feeling better now! Ava sounds so CUTE!!!! I LOVE the things little kids say all the time! haha

Tamara said...

Oh...I remember those days. It's not much better when they are teenagers I am sorry to say!

The Steeds said...

I found myself nodding my head while I read your post-- I have had those kinds of months while being prego. It is ok. But-- I am glad that you are doing ok.

Congrats on the upcoming arrival! Ava will be such a good big sister! Horray for the 2nd trimester, right? :)

amy hunter said...

Nichole!! Congrats on the baby!! Sad to say I just read your exciting news...I too am super behind in the blogging world, and very slow to catch up with others...but now that we are starting to settle in I can hopefully catch up! Sorry you'r so sick, hopefully it comes to an end soon! Coke slushies were a lifesaver when I was prego and sick! Good luck with everything!

The Wingwah's said...

come on... you only have one. What are you going to do with 2? joking, joking. I am not a fan of pregnancy and I get totally out of all my normal routines.
I think it's hilarious you woke her up to eat... I would have just figured she would eat in the morning... funnier is that your mom TOLD you to wake her up.
