This is it....

So I have decided that I dont like the blog name anymore and so I am moving!

I have a new blog now.... If you know me and want to continue to follow let me know. If we are friends on facebook I will also post that there.

Goodbye "baby Guy's lullabies. It's for the best :)

Friday, October 5, 2012 away from me again

Patience grasshoppers....

I actually started typing up the blog for today this morning... it is now 7 PM. HAHA

I Hope that I will get better at this but who really knows, I am a busy girl sheesh :) So anyhow.... here is my attempt to catch up on the photo a day challenge:

I Just started doing weight watchers again...minus the meetings or the paying part. I have done it 3 times in the past so I am a pro, also you can find anything you want on the internet so we will see how this goes! Since I am nursing I get about 40 points a day to "spend" on food. This cinnamon raisin bagel without cream cheese was SIX points.... ugh this might take some getting used to after shoving my face during the pregnancy.

This was a LOOOOONNNGG day for me... I was supposed to meet my Aunt in the morning but was having such a rough morning that I had to cancel for the second time ( ugh) So in the end my makeup never even got put away it just stayed strewn on the floor until I got my stuff together the next day.

I took this shot of my Kindle Fire it is pretty funny to see the mix of books that I have downloaded to read. I can honestly say this is one crazy mix..... and yes you are seeing Fifty Shades of Grey there... no I have not read it....all..... I also never finished the hunger games or Think like a man, I did however watch both of the movies. I also read AND watched what to expect when your expecting. Funny how many books I "read"that they turn into movies.

Well I am actually surprised I was still able t get a "shadow" shot on a day in October but it has been really warm and sunny lately... weird! Here's Sophie! 
Then I realized Sophie is a teething toy....that will go in the baby's mouth.... hahaha time for a bath Sophie!!

See you all tomorrow......maybe.

I know... I am NOT very good at these

Lets see how well I do this month..... if you look at my past blogs you will see that I don't have a very good history of keeping up on these photo a day challenges.
DAY # 1:: Where I stood


This might just be one of the last nice days outside so I was enjoying a little sun while the baby napped. This "bark" is actually rubber! How cool is that?
Then while the baby finished her nap I did a little less standing! :)

Enjoy your Monday everyone.... here in our house it is Friday ( hubby is off for the next 3 days!)

Maybe I'm not a good "blogger"

Yeah you heard that right.....

I have come to the conclusion that I am not a very good blogger. I really thought I would blog everyday while the baby was napping.... well I have found that cleaning, eating, and working on my business projects have taken over that time.

As for right now... well she is NOT sleeping. LOL I am sitting right next to her in our recliner part of the sectional while she swings away "trying to sleep" is what I am telling myself. Matter of fact she is grunting at me trying to get me to look at her. Look, I will NOT do because she needs to take her 30 min. morning nap. ( I know sad that its only 30 mins but you would take that time if you had it too!)

Here she is right this second staring at me:


HAHA! Makes me laugh because it is almost as if she is willing me to get her out of her swing! Can't she see I am "working"here. ;)

Well shoot.... her music just went off on the swing and I don't want to make eye contact to turn it back on. boo. I peeked...looked out the side of my eye...yep STILL staring.

Fine, I will move on.

So my household this week is full of sneezing and runny noses and coughs and just plain yuckiness! It has been pretty miserable but thankfully my hubby is off Tues. Wed. and Thurs. so he was able to do most of the housework and baby needs type things while I rested! PHEW! Feeling so much better today!

 While I am feeling better I have decided to invest in a new planner...thing is I get this need to get a new planner way to often. Here's the truth...I have some sort of organizational OCD. I just bought a planner AND got a free one with my start up kit BUT I couldn't find a good place to keep my planner, pens, and highlighters all in one place ( because I don't like carrying huge bags) so I ended up writing a date in my planner in the WRONG COLOR ( oh no) and then I had to put a line through a play date that I cancelled due to being sick which I had written in pen (NOOOO) so now I can't even look at the planner without going loony.

Sad much? I know!

So I am now on a mission to find the BEST planner ever!! Really... I am googling it people! I will let you know what I find when I find it :) Now onto cleaning because the baby finally fell asleep so I will only have about 30 mins!

2 months old!


Jaida, can you believe it has been 2months already??? I know I can't!

We already have a routine going and you sleep well through the night most days. You smile and coo, you even rolled over from your tummy to your back during tummy time last week. You are able to lift your head really well and have great neck control too! ( Although you still like to headbutt me and daddy when we hold you on our shoulders) You are still doing well drinking only pumped breast milk. You drink about 2-3 oz every 2-3 hours. You have been going down to bed after a nightly bath and bottle at about 1030 or so and wake me up between 3 and 5 am to eat then go back to sleep until around 7 am. Then we get up and come downstairs with your brother where you eat again and go back to sleep in your swing for a couple hours! so really you are only sleeping and eating from 10pm till 10 am :) Then the fun begins and we can start our day!

The best news though is that Daddy and I officially decided that I get to leave my job in the working world and stay home to raise you and your brother!

(besides if you saw the price of childcare these days........)

I can't wait to see how you grow and change in the months to come!

Look... I'm back! **photo bomb time**

Alright.... I think I might be back to the blog world for good. Hubby bought a new computer last night and I am all over blogging again :)

I almost feel like I should start all over ( a brand new blog) because I have such bad OCD when it comes to organization! It will probably make me crazy that I left out a whole 2 months of my life on my blog ahhhhhhh!

So, let's catch up shall we::
(here are the pics I promised)

This is my last official belly pic taken the morning I went in for my c section.

Here is Jaida at one day old in the hospital

First trip to church ( first official trip out)

Brother and sister

One month::

Well.... we pretty caught up. I am going to make another post today to do her monthly check in!

Friday, August 3, 2012


Pretty sure I am either fired from.... or almost fired from the world of blogging.

I figured the only people reading my blog were the friends on facebook that follow the links that I post on there as a "blog update." That is until I really thought about all of the blogs that I just "troll" ( as they call it) meaning blogs that I anonymously follow because I am interested in other peoples lives. Hence all the reality TV I watch :) So now I feel really bad. I could be so wrong and maybe nobody other than my friends is really following my life BUT just in case..... I have a LOT to fill everyone in on.

Let's see.....

Last time I was on here was a little less than a month before I gave birth! ( sorry people that were waiting to hear how that went!)

Well I had the baby! YAY! Here are the stats::

SEX: Girl
BIRTHDAY: June 19, 2012
TIME: 10:19am
VIA: C-section (repeat)
WEIGHT: 9lbs. 9oz.
HEIGHT: 20 1/4 inches

She has a full head of hair and it was love at first sight!

** I will post pics later.. I am having trouble with this dumb computer!*

Jaida Alyse is now almost 7 weeks old!! She is so good and sleeps so well! So far she already follows a pretty normal nightly sleeping pattern of 1st bedtime being around 8 or 9 (after a bath) then she usually will wake up again around 1130pm to eat.... then again around 3am.... then she is up for the day at around 630 or 7am. There have been a couple nights that she has slept for 7 hour stretches!

At this point I am not sure if I will be going back to my current job or if I will be looking for something from home or at least only part time.

Well.... Baby is awake gotta go! Hope to be back before another 2 months pass!!
