Hey guys - been busy lately! Things are going well except for some extreme gas pains this weekend (at least I hope that's what this is)... Julia is moving more and more...
QOTD: I think strawberries. Love them so much....
Banana - so nice to have DH back soon. My DH used to be in the Navy and I do not miss those long deployments.
Crafty - my 2 and a half your old is also extremely moody lately. I think it's the age. She through four fits just getting ready for church, one was only because she couldn't take her dress off of the hanger. My patience is wearing thin for sure.
DD1's birthday party was finally a success. Some people couldn't come since we had to postpone it a day but she still had a ton of fun and the weather was perfect! I am ready for her birthday to be through, it has been dragging on for days. Definitely indulging in some take-out tonight, DH and I are exhausted.
Baby seems to be extra jumpy lately, lots of movement. She seemed to be bouncing on my bladder all through church, I had to run to the bathroom immediately after.
Two things really. 1) A mom. It always seemed like the most awesome job (and it is!!). My Mom used to have to fight me to get my little siblings away from me. I was convinced that I could nurse them no problem, and wasn't afraid of poopy diapers even at 2. :) 2) Since my parents said I had to have a "real" job some day I wanted to be a veterinarian. Unfortunately, I have allergies to animal dander, so that was a no-go. Good for me the whole mom thing worked out perfectly. :)
cardigan: hope the protein helps things out! I'm a sucker for end of summer BLTs, too.
QOTD: When I was little I wanted to be an interior decorator, then a teacher, and ALWAYS a mom. I ended up being a teacher and taught in public schools for a couple years. (I was going to save them too, Heather.) But I'm grateful to be able to be home with my kids and will start homeschooling next fall.
Oh gosh, I had forgotten about that. I went through a phase where I subscribed to House Beautiful. I pored over it religiously and would make drawings redecorating our house with money we didn't have...so there. There was one thing I wanted to be besides whatever my sister was. ;)
Oddly enough, I didn't want to necessarily be a mom until I hit 30. Heck, I was convinced I wasn't even the marrying type...
I like Moriah, and it suits your other names, though everyone will miss pronounce and spell it. Mo would be a cute nick name too.
My parents are coming out for a visit in two days so I am getting ready. Bee's birthday is on Friday and party on Saturday.I sewed her a doll bassinet/moses basket, but need to sew her owl dress (she has loved the fabric for months). We had a mini potluck here for church, so the main floor is pretty clean, but I need to have a good go at the upstairs. And get the rest of the giant pile of clothes etc out of the nursery so my dad can work in there.
I have been wicked hungry this past while. I ate a small dinner at four and made a smaller one for my husband and I at 7 thinking he would eat most of it. Not so much. I am also super craving sweet and was very annoyed that he took Bee for a go the f to sleep walk and did not bring me home Trader Joes ice cream sandwiches.
Moriah is beautiful, as are your other children's names! I like Moriah Faith the best.
