Where have I been?!

I can't even believe that I haven't blogged since September 6th! I guess life is kicking my butt a little more than I realized right now. Lets all say a prayer that at least once I'm not pregnant anymore... maybe I can muster up the energy to write on this little old blog that I love so much!

What can I say? The last couple of weeks since I went back to work have been incredibly busy during the day... and that pretty much wipes me out in terms of energy. By the time we get home it's about 2ish hours of playing with, feeding, bathing, and putting James to bed... so by the time he goes down at 7:30-8... I'm just too brain-dead to write anything here. I barely even have the energy to feed myself... much less lift the computer off the floor.

The update on Tyler is that the doctor won't let me deliver past 38 weeks... so we're on a downhill slide with that - it is about 3 weeks and 6 days until that date... so things could get nutty for a while. I do promise however that since we will have wifi in the hospital... either John or I will get something up once Tyler makes his appearance.

We see the doctor every Tuesday afternoon to be checked out, and I've been told to be prepared for full bed rest to be prescribed at any moment if it becomes needed... so far though - I'm doing my best to push through and keep moving until delivery. Mr. Tyler is still positioned very high and is breech. He doesn't show any signs of moving where he belongs - and with my diabetes... my fluid level is very high so he's just swimming away in there. That doesn't make things look good for a vaginal delivery... so we're likely looking at a c-section for ol' Mama. I've said before though, I'm totally fine with that - whatever it takes to make the delivery go smoothly for Tyler and for myself.

James is doing really well - baby food is going extremely well... we've now tried and loved: sweet potatoes, squash, and carrots... and on tonight's menu is peas. Once we get through peas and green beans we'll be starting on fruits with his morning cereal. He has been working really hard on rolling over - and if you can get him to lay on his tummy... he will roll to his back... but he's working super hard on going the other way because he'd much prefer laying on his back and playing. He has turned a corner and is now being much more social - at least with family in our house... not so much with the folks at church, but at least John's parents and mine can get a little James love when we're at our house.

My Mom came to visit us today, and it has been a really nice day... the only downside is that with all the action - James hasn't taken any I expect that this will be an early night for my little man. In fact, we might be starting the downhill trek on that right now... gotta run tend to a fussy man... but I'll be back later on this evening to share a boat load of pictures!


  1. Yumm, sweet potatoes were my favorite. I had mad a vow that I would not feed my kids anything I was not willing to eat - which meant homemade baby food. (I do have some very crunchy moments).

    Anyway, I hated sweet potatoes because I had always had them with marshmallows (gag) but when I made them for my daughter plain and mashed they were good! On of my new favorite foods. I still won't eat them with marshmallows and don't particularly like them with a bunch of sugar.

  2. Wow all I can say is that you are a great writer! Where can I contact you if I want to hire you?


Thank you so much for your comments. I really enjoy getting feedback on my writing!
