I'm going to attempt to do a complete update... we'll see how it goes, lol!
Senia's coming up on 2 1/2 months- it's amazing that she's that old already. She is a BREEZE to take care of, though. She's very easygoing and even her crabby times are getting less frequent and they're easy to get through. I usually just have to hold her on her tummy and sway back and forth a bit and she calms down. When she wakes up during the day she's super happy and loves to smile and coo. I have lots of cute pictures to post when I find time.
I have no idea how I'm SO busy when I'm not working. Obviously "new baby" has something to do with it but it just doesn't make sense to me. I'm starting to look forward to going back to work a bit. I don't want to leave Senia at all, but having that extra weekly paycheck will be nice. I'm struggling with Luke only getting paid every 2 weeks. It seems like when he gets paid I pay everything that's come up in the last 2 weeks and then we're broke again for 2 weeks. Ugh. Stupid money.
My birthday's this weekend. I'm going to be in my upper 20s and that makes me feel SOO old. I still think of myself as being 18 so 25 just does not seem ok! Luke's going to be 29 in a couple weeks- next year I'll be married to a 30-year-old. Man. I do find comfort in the fact that I'm 24 and have 3 gorgeous kids and a house already.
The older kids have been sick. Lana's had it really bad for about a week. I kept her home from school Fri and she was in bed for 2 days. She's been going to school this week but goes to bed a little while after coming home. Naima's just had a cold. Naima was having a really rough time for a couple weeks. Seperation anxiety I think. Last Thurs she was actually crying that she didn't want to go to school and the aid had to hold her while I left so she didn't follow me. We haven't had any more of that this week, luckily. I've been letting her be by me a lot more so that's helping.
I'm sick of this so I'll end here. I have to catch up on posting pics... more for me to look back on than anything else.

Have to be at work in 16 minutes.. should probably get my shit together and get ready.
Day off tomorrow- cannot fricking wait.
Oh, 15 minutes.
|Tuesday, January 25th, 2011|
I feel like shit today. Woke up feeling kind of dizzy and puke-y and then the dog peed on the floor and I really did puke. Awesome.
I really don't feel like going to work but it's my short 4-hour day so I have to manage. I just don't really have anything to do and it's going to be a boring 4 hours.
I'm feeling insanely fat lately. I don't feel pregnant much anymore so I just look at myself in the mirror, and ugh. I'm not taking growing out of my clothes well this time. With Lana I didn't know what was coming so I didn't really care. With Naima, I was a SAHM so it didn't really matter. But now I've spent the last year wearing cute clothes and heels, and I don't want to lose that. I need to start working out again but I have no motivation since I can't lose weight.
Oh, LJ seems to be working again for me. I guess we'll see how long that lasts.
|Saturday, January 22nd, 2011|
OMG LJ let me on!
Anyway, HAI FRIENDS.. I'm reading but when I try to comment it doesn't usually work. So... if my computer gets over this LJ-hatred I'll be commenting again...

Livejournal's being a pain in the ass lately. It works half the time and then it won't load. UGH... driving me crazy.
My belly is huge. I constantly feel like I just ate three meals. Sometimes I look down and think "where the hell did that come from?!". I'll be in the second trimester next week and I have no idea where the time's going. I hope it slows down soon... or at least when it gets warmer. These single digit temps and snow everyday are getting old. It's supposed to be -16 tomorrow night. NEGATIVE SIXTEEN. Why do I live in Wisconsin?
And I promise I'll post pics soon. Really. Maybe tomorrow. Probabaly not... but sometime.

Why is it that when you're pregnant people suddenly think you possess the ability to tell if they're pregnant? You had sex without protection? Ok, take a freakin test! No matter how many times you text me about it I'm not going to be able to tell you. I swear, the next time someone tries that on me I'm going to tell them they definitely ARE pregnant because at least it would be amusing.

It's a great day to be a Packer fan!
My daughter just got 4 strikes in a row on Wii bowling her first time bowling. Holy crap- that's better than I do most of the time...

My kids just asked me to make them grilled cheese with Goldfish crackers in the middle. Sure, what the heck...
Wedding last weekend went well. I had fun for awhile, until everyone else was getting drunk. I don't know why people don't understand that the fat, pregnant, crabby, sober girl wearing 5" heels doesn't want to dance like an idiot. *sigh* The hotel suite was really nice, though, and the hotel breakfast was AMAZING.
And then I peed in like every bathroom on the two hour ride home. Well, not really, but between shopping and the drive I used probably 15 bathrooms. At one point I asked Luke if he could stop at the next town (20 min away) to get something to drink.
Luke: Yeah, and so you can go to the bathroom, too.
Me: I actually DON'T have to go.
Luke: But you will.
Sure enough... man, I miss that little luxury of being able to go longer than 3 minutes without a bathroom.
Dr. appt yesterday. I actually got to hear the heartbeat at only 9 1/2 weeks so that was cool. I'm convinced my little parasite is alive and well. LOVE my new doctor, not so much her nurse. She insisted on changing my due date two days ahead because the little wheel thing came up different than it did last time. I told her I wasn't changing it but she still wrote it down. Grr.
I'm going to do a picture post one of these years.

So apparently when you go on an overnight trip, you need to pack. Ugh.

I'm having a hard time remembering it's New Years. It's SOO nice not living by the bar anymore (would have NO problem remembering if I still was). I'm not missing alcohol like I was the first couple weeks of my pregnancy, so that's a relief. I have my boss's wedding to go to tomorrow, and while it's always fun to drink with my co-workers, I'm ok now with the fact that I won't be. I tried on the clothes I'm wearing, and even though I got an empire-waisted dress (luckily, since I ordered the day I found out) I can still see my stomach sticking out. I don't know how that even happens at 8 1/2 weeks. There must be about 6 babies in there. The shoes I'm wearing to the wedding are fucking awesome, but I'm not too excited to rock the 5 inch heels without the help of alcohol- they're just so much easier to walk in when you don't feel it!
I think my sinus infection is finally breaking. There is an end in sight and I might have a semi-productive day sometime soon. I haven't even had the energy to knit while I'm lying on the couch. Christmas presents, I swear you'll be finished one day.
And FYI: strawberry kiwi Juicy Juice and Cranberry Splash mixed together might be the most amazing thing I've ever tasted. Non-alcoholic thing, anyway!
|Thursday, December 30th, 2010|
Computer crashed but I'm back now...
To put it bluntly, I feel like shit. I finally gave in on Monday and got some antibiotics for my sinus infection, and I have a yeast infection. And if that's not enough wrong with me, now I'm getting pink eye. Awesome. At least Nemo got the drops so I don't have to go back for another perscription.
I feel like puking all the time but rarely actually do it. I miss my other pregnancies where I didn't feel sick but threw up. Much less annoying and I'm sure better on the scale. I haven't gained any weight yet but already can't fit into half of my pants. F'ing ridiculous. I barely feel pregnant (besides the whole "hit-by-a-bus" thing) and I already have a stomach. Ugh.
|Thursday, December 9th, 2010|
My back is trying to leave my body. If it doesn't I might just evict it. I am 5w1d and in SOOO much back pain already. Ugh... I hope this doesn't last for another 35 weeks.
I broke down last night and ordered a couple pouch slings in the brand that I love. I want about 15 more of them but I got through Naima with only two so four should be good. Maybe I'll order another one or two if and when I find out the sex.
I'm also having an overwhelming urge to order diapers. I've literally had a diaper website open on my computer since last week when I found out I was pregnant. I don't know why I'm so uptight this time to get everything ready. It's not like I'm 30 weeks along- no matter WHAT happens right now I won't have a baby for quite a while. I didn't even feel like this with Lana when I had absolutely nothing. This feels like it's going to be a long pregnancy...
|Monday, December 6th, 2010|
Me: "I don't feel good, honey..."
Lana: "That's probably because you have a baby in your tummy."
Yep, pregnant again. Decided to dust off the ol' Livejournal and be more active in communities again.
I'm pretty excited about the pregnancy- hoping for a little boy this time. Not so excited about how crappy I feel already- I'm hoping a lot of it is just being sick and it goes away soon.

My computer had a stroke and it will probably be awhile before I feel like getting it fixed... so I won't be around for awhile...

My baby is getting so big... Her birthday is tomorrow. I was thinking this morning at work that I was in labor all day one year ago.. so weird to think about. We had her birthay party on Sat and it went really well. We had it outside in the park and the weather was great and the kids had a lot of fun. Ima runs now and she's starting to talk (she said "here ya go" (or actually "here do") the other day). Nuts.
The kids play together so well- I love watching them grow up. I can't wait to have another little one..

I made the design team at Scrapgoods! HELL YEAH.
|Monday, May 12th, 2008|
My baby is no longer a baby and I'm severly mourning the loss. She walks and hardly ever crwls anymore, she suddenly has teeth coming in everywhere, and she TALKS. Lana didn't say her first words until 16 months. This is WAAAY to soon. I'm so glad she's not my last baby... I don't know how anyone can handle it when they do have their last baby.
I'm going to post pictures. I swear. I actually have them on Photobucket... so that's a start, right?
|Wednesday, April 23rd, 2008|
I love working. I really, really love it and I'm surprised by that. It's great to actually be doing something interesting. I'm learning two jobs right now (the person who does the price changes/sales/special orders/etc and the person who does all the money-type stuff). I'm having a lot of fun. It's also nice to have at least $150 guaranteed each week. I'm a lot busier, of course, but I still have 2-3 days off a week, and in a block, so I have enough time at home. I get off at 2-3pm so I have quite a bit of day left after work.
The kids have taken to it really well. The first week was slightly rough, but it went a lot better than I really expected and now it's going great. I stopped pumping because I was pretty much just wasting the time each day to pump 3oz that I would later dump out because Ima refuses to take a cup if it has breastmilk in it. My friend (who watches the kids) just brings them over every couple of hours for Naima to nurse during my break.
Ima's walking! She doesn't really know she can, but if she's standing and you hold your arms out close enough to her, she can easily take the 4-5 steps to you. She's also eating everything she can get her hands on. Aside from the basics that she's not old enough for (honey/milk/nuts/etc) I give her pretty much anything we eat and she munches like a pro, even though she's still all gums!
Lana's getting huge and she can do so much now. She loves puzzles and I'm always surprized that she can put them together. She saw a "P" the other day and said "P!"... I don't know where that came from but I was impressed, lol! She's an awesome big sister and she's helping out so much.
