Reminiscing

I'm sitting here on my mom's computer looking through all the files of pictures she has and came across the ones from Jayden's birth. My little man, I look at him now and see him half way to adulthood compared to his precious baby pictures!!! LOL Ok, I know I am overreacting now, but I am still blaming everything on my pregnant emotions. Just look at these pictures. They explain themselves!











Jayden's going for surgery

This morning was Jayden's e.n.t doctor appointment. It went how I expected it to. The doctor is recommending he put tubes in his ears and have his adenos taken out at the same time. Now I know this is a simple, "everyday" procedure, but me being....well pregnant and emotional, I almost started crying in the office. The thought of having to just hand over MY BABY to someone is making me a wreck! My poor little one. We go back on Feb 6 to the office to sign waivers and all that mess, then on Feb 16th, is when he will have the surgery. I really hope this helps his ears and nose issues (poor lil guy has had a running nose for over a month now.) and this is his 4th ear infection in a 12 month period that we are dealing with now. So yeah, I am thinking this was only a matter of time.

Looking back over the past 30 weeks....

....I'm an freakin' huge!!! It has now become an obstacles to tie my shoes, (well that's been ongoing for a month now), But still! I visit my doctor Monday, Feb 2. and I'm sure to hear from him about my weight gain. I'm averaging 4-5 pounds a month. UGH! My last weight was at 224. YES! I ADMIT IT!! I'M A FAT ASS! :) Well, I guess I'm being a little extreme, cuz my height is in proportion with my weight, but I still few like a cow. Any ways, here's a quick glimpse of my growing belly bump (stretch marks and all) over that past 30 weeks. Only 10 more to go (hopefully sooner!)
16 weeks



21 weeks


25 weeks (Present)
26 weeks pregnant with Jayden

30 weeks
I was hoping to find my pregnant pictures from Jayden, but I could only find that one. Maybe my mom has some other on her computer so I can compare....

Jayden does the darndest things!

So Jayden is going through his terrible two stage and has been for a few months now. Well this afternoon, for no apparent reason, he starts throwing his markers and paper everywhere. Now normally I would ask him politely to please pick them up, if he ignores me or just doesn't do it, I go pick them up then, hide them. Well, today was the last straw. Because this outrage of marker throwing has been an almost daily thing for him, when he did it and I asked him to pick them up and he just looked at me like I was speaking a foreign language....I told him if he didn't pick them up, they will become property of the garbage. Once more I asked. I got the same dead response followed by him just walking away. So I told him to say bye to the markers and what do I hear from my 2 year old's mouth?!?! "Bye markers" He says this as he is throwing them in the trash!!!
I just stood there trying to hide my apparent laugh, but I couldn't help it, Jayden can be just so darn cute!!!!

It's just one of those days.

The day is dreary. It's cold and I'm an emotional roller coaster today. Eric and I got into a tiff last night over something so stupid and it was right after dinner. He stayed in the bedroom after he showered and I was left to bathe and shower myself and Jayden. Which he was not feeling all that great. He was very moody. His eyes can't decide whether they are infected (pink eye) or not and his poor nostrils are all stuffed up and runny. He had his 2 year check up at the doctor yesterday and his pedi ended up sending him to get blood work done, allergy testing AND an x-ray on his nose (because it has been snotty for almost 3 weeks now). We got the results back on the x-rays and everything came back normal, so now we are waiting on the allergy/ blood work to get back. Meanwhile, poor Jayden gets eye drops in both eyes 3 times a day, plus I'm squirting saline spray up his nose to help.

83 more days and counting

Its a new day and I have cooled off from yesterdays miseries. Jayden is laying down for a very early nap (its only 11am!!) and Eric is working a little overtime, so I have some me time. I was reading on my baby forum: http://babyfit.com/ about how time is getting closer and all us will soon have a new addition to our family. It really got me thinking. I only have 83 more day till my precious daughter will be here! WOW! I will be a mom of TWO! I am still in disbelief that this is my life. But I love it. I know there are times when I moan about stupid things, but then I step back and think, 'there are others who have it worse' I am truly blessed for what I have.

Happy Birthday to me...WHATEVER!

(O woe is me.)

My birthday has sucked sucked sucked this year! Everything that needed to happen didn't. It started off with going down to take my 4 hour glucose test. I walked in at 7:50 am and told the lady I was here for it. She asked if I had an appointment...'uh, no. My doctor told me to just come in and do it!' This is where the arguing begins. She tells me I need to have an appt. because it takes 4 hours. Well no crap woman!!!! But they closed the office down at noon for lunch so there wasn't enough time, and my appt, need to be for 7 am. WTF! thats 5 hours. I know I'm bad at math, but c'mon!!! So whatever, I leave and head to my parents house to go eat breakfast since I had to fast for this stupid test. Well I get there and notice, Jayden's right eye is very watery and kept having green gunk come out. GREAT! PINK EYE!! AAAHHH!!! So I call his pediatrician, and their office is closed until like the 13th or something. DOUBLE GREAT! So I call around to try to find an after hours or a walk in clinic that takes his insurance. After many disappointing conversations, I call his insurance provider to find out where the hell I can take him. They give me a place that was really close to my house. So I wait for Eric to pick us up from my parents, and we head over to the urgent care center. We walk in and I double check with the receptionist that they take his insurance. Yes, indeed they do. So as we're waiting, she calls me up to tell me, they can't verify his insurance is still good. She tried numerous times with no luck. I tried to call customer service, but what do you know, they are closed and don't reopen until monday morning. TRIPLE GREAT!!! Eric had ran out to the bank 10 minuets ago and now Jayden can't be seen for his nasty runny eye!! Another 5-10 minuets go by and finally Eric pulls up, by now, I am in tears and fuming that my luck with anything I tried to do today, didn't happen.

So we go out to dinner, come home, Jayden gets put to bed and I go take a shower. By the time I get out, it's 10pm. Eric never got me a little gift or even a card. WTF! I bake him a nice f-ing cake and get him some desperately needed sandals, and for my birthday....NOTHING! Did I mention the place we went to dinner at was paid by a gift card that my parents gave to us, so its not like it cost us anything!!! I'm so disappointed in him, but I guess I shouldn't expect that, in the 3 years we have been together, I was given a present on ONE Christmas only. Never on any other holidays and somehow I manage to get him something every time. AND I DON'T EVEN WORK!!!! HOW THE HELL DOES THAT HAPPEN!!!!!!!

Well I guess, I'm gonna go sulk now, the crappy part is, he doesn't understand why I'm in such a pissie mood (even though I have told him before!)

O, and did I mention, I have been fighting a cold the past couple days too?!?!

January is the month of birthdays!!

Yesterday Eric and I spent OUR birthdays (yes I now share MY birthday with my husband-his is the 7th and mine is the 9th) at my parents house. My parents cooked a great meal for us which included steak (YUM!), fried green beans, salad and for Eric a huge thing of zeati (sp?) I managed to bake Eric a surprise cake. Well kinda, he knew I was making him one he just didn't know the full details....I am quite proud of myself and my creativity!!

Its a world of warcraft cake!!!!

Now moving on past our birthdays, Jayden's is coming up on the 15th. I have decided to have it a local park, this time I will not be baking his cake, I will leave it up the the grocery store. :P

So because all the festivities are still going on around my house, which means we still have all the sweets, my 1 hour glucose test came back up high :( So now, I will be spending tomorrow, my birthday, at labcorp taking a 4 hour test! UGH! Basically this means, I fast from 10pm tonight, wake up go drink this sugary drink, wait 4 friggin' hours at the place then have my blood drawn. Fun for me, wish me luck that boredom doesn't set too far in while I'm there.

Hello 2009!

I hope everyone had a fun new year. Mine, however was nothing short of a "thrilling". I was blamed for ruining the evening, by one of my good friends husband's Chris. All because I needed Eric to occupy Jayden while I made dinner and did stuff around the house. Let me back track some....There is this game World Of Warcraft that both Eric and Chris play on. Chris is way addicted to this game and needs some professional help to slow down (Im not joking) Well Chris needed Eric to run part of this game before heading over to our house for New Years Eve so because he couldn't Chris threw a 5 year old's temper tantrum....To make a long story short, my friend Amy came over without him. Around 9:30pm, He realized what an idiot he was being and wanted us to come get him. So my mom kept Jayden while the 3 of us went to go get him.

I will say, Jayden could of out lasted all of us!! While I was ready for bed at 11pm, he was running in circles! He didnt fall alseep until a little after 1am!

Now that all the fun is over, Jayden now thinks his bedtime is midnight. So Im struggling to get him to take a nap as I blog and it is no fun. He slept in till 10am today! So needless to say, he is not tired at all.
