Shopping Baby Fun!

What did you say Daren, I didn't look pregnant? Fooled ya! No I haven't skipped ahead a few months. We went to the store Motherhood while at the mall. They have this fake belly, so you can see what it will look like. Shelby & I were cracking up. She said Mama your huge, I guess she hasn't seen too many pregnant women towards the end. We had a great day together, didn't buy much, but walked the whole mall, laughed, talked (ALOT), good times!

Sunday~Girl's Day

Big Daddy went to Eva's house to play & hang out. Shelby & I had a date planned. First we went to see Ramona Quimby (the play @ Junior theater) It was cute. Afterward they gave all the kids a free Ramona book, & Ramona herself signed it for Shelby, she was excited!

Then we went to Olive Garden....Yummy!!!! I always get soup, salad & breadsticks (creature of habit what can I say?) I always get Pasta Fagoli.

When Nana Enie comes the 3 of us girls try & go to Olive Garden if we can. One time awhile back we went & Shelby got chicken nuggets kids meal. She didn't like them, had a headache, basically was on the verge of a melt Nana shared some of her soup with Shelby. She thought it was the best thing ever, & of course cured her headache, so needless to say that's what she gets everytime now. Gnocchi soup (spinach, dumplings, carrots, chicken, & celery) She said again yesterday "Aaaahhhhh my soup, the headache cure!" She cracks me up sometimes, what a hoot! Then we went to the mall for a couple of hours.

My daughter is growing up.....I know, I know it's a natural thing, but...........I'm a little frightened by all the questions all of a sudden of my 8 year old. Here's a sample of my last couple of weeks of questions.
  • What's juvie?
  • What does drunk mean?
  • (After watching baby story w/me) Why would any woman want to have the baby out her "bagina"?
  • Mama, am I fat?
  • Did you & Daddy live together before you got married?
  • Why don't some people believe in God?
  • Will you love the baby more than me?
  • Why are some kids more popular than others?
  • Why do Mama's & Daddy's sleep in the same bed?
  • Why did God do this to the people in Haiti?
  • Because your tired all the time does that mean we have a bad baby?
  • Did I drink out of your breast? No, why not?
  • What's the difference between laughing & giggling?
Those are just the ones I can remember right now, some no problem, some I have to give some thought.
What did parents do before google? I couldn't live without it. Bless you Google people. I know this is only the start, but my god school stuff is getting hard for me (maybe it's pregnancy brain maybe not?) Some of it I remember but man when you don't use it all the time, you forget. Thanks for listening! I find myself wondering.....Wow, how are we not going to be too tired with this next one, because Shelby is exhausting by herself pheeeeewwww! I think I need a nap! Hope everyone has a good day!

My Valentine"s"

This is the love of my life! Big Daddy got these 2 presents from baby M&M. Shelby got him a watch, & I got him This is It~Michael Jackson. I got a snuggie, & Black Eyed Peas CD!

Shelby got a Hello Kitty dress, a Sugar Plum Fairy book, & 2 new "bras". As you can see she was very excited. We had breakfast with Nana & Bubby @ Gramma's kitchen. I napped for a couple hours, Daren & Shelby went to bowl (Big Daddy had to bowl singles & doubles @ Miller Time) Then we went to dinner @ Applebees, it was sooooo yummy. Shelby said we ate out 3 times today YES!!! (don't get used to it!) A very good day!

Which one are you?

So women which one are you?........The woman that says, I was never happier when I was pregnant, it was the best thing I ever did?.........or Wow, this kinda sucks, 9 months huh? I'm in the 2nd category at least today.
I had a not so great OB appt. the other day (the baby is fine, & I'm fine) it was the Dr. that got to me a bit.
I'm on day 5 or 6 of a stupid head cold, I still don't look pregnant, can't feel any movement yet, just having a day I guess. Enough complaining now, sorry I had to gripe for a bit, I'll be better tomorrow. Monday will be at 15 weeks (the size of a navel orange) Baby M&M is doing great! (Heartbeat was 166 @ appt. Shelby was quite concerned & figured out it went down 9 beats from the ultra sound, the nurse reassured her it was perfectly fine) Shelby's teacher thinks she should illustrate & write a book about her journey to becoming a sibling.
