Quick Rant

I was going to write this on facebook, but decided to safe myself the grief:

I notice a lot of people ranting about how 50 Shades of Grey is soooo bad and it hurts our society and degrades women........We do realize this is make believe right?

I don't remember people getting so up in arms from movies such as The Hills have Eyes (pretty sure they kill a baby) or Hostel (which actually made me physically sick to watch) or SAW. Those are just as bad accept the two parties involved aren't in agreement with what is going on, one is getting murdered.......brutally

What about Unfaithful????

just sayin'

My Happiness

200th Post

Crazy,  200 times I've shared a little bit of my heart on this thing.  As a young girl I wrote in a journal from the time I was in 5th grade, all the way through college.  It has given me such peace and let it all out.  I definitely don't let it all out on here, but sharing fun times and tough times does lessen the weight on my shoulders from time to time.  I plan on burning those old journals one day soon ;)

Anyway,  it's funny how God works in mysterious ways.  Last night was not a good night.  My children, bless their hearts, are trying to kill me. I'd like to share my night:

1:30am - Matthew wakes up and is UP
3:08am - After 2 nursing sessions a whole lot of rocking and a full bottle - He's back down
4:00am - Emma wakes up and is PISSED
4:35am - After trying to get her to go back to sleep she decides she would like to just sleep next to mommy
4:45am - She actually falls asleep after mommy continuously pushing her head down onto the pillow from climbing ontop of me.
5:35am - Matthew wakes up

Ok kids, you win.  I lose........again.   If you think this was a one time occurrence, you are sadly mistaken...strike that.....really we're all sad about it haha

So this morning I was obviously kind of tired and wondering to myself, can I last?  Will I be able to keep doing this without actually having a mental breakdown?


I go on and read my usual blogs (they are listed on the right side of the screen) but I also have secret stash of blogs.  Click on The Great Adventures of Big G, Middle G & Little G! and you'll see she has her own favs, which I read all of too!  Well, Kelly's Korner, had a post today titles "Heart Talk".  She recently got preggo with baby #3 and already has 2 little girls that are close together.  At the end of her post she talked about how hard it was with the two small kids and pretty much just said things that I was currently feeling and then she said "it gets better". Yeah, everyone says it gets better, but reading that today was just something my soul NEEDED. I'd like to think maybe God helped her write that post just for me........and it makes me smile and I know I can do it.  I might forget again tomorrow morning at 1:00 am, but right now it helps make the day a little brighter.

Until Next time!

4 Month Update

Age: 18 Weeks
Weight & Height: At his 4 month appt. he was 28 inches (99th Percentile) and 18 lbs. 3 oz (93rd Percentile). Went down in percentile for
Things I enjoy: I like my exersaucer. I love being in a nice warm bath and I love to eat. I LOVE LOVE LOVE looking at myself in the mirror too!
Skills I've mastered: I can hold my head up no problem now. I rolled over once at daycare, but mommy and daddy are still waiting to see me do it at home.
Looking forward to:  Grasping my toys and sitting up on my own and discovering my hands and feet.
Tough Times: I still don't sleep through the night.  I just really need to eat after a few hours so I know it's tough on mommy and daddy, but I'm working on it.  I think they may give me some cereal soon and I think that will help!
Exciting Events: I am moving!  LIke my whole house.  I can't wait to be in daycare with my cousins.  I'm also excited to live closer to grammy and poppy and all my relatives.
Looking forward to: Summer.  Emma keeps telling me how great walks are and being outside, but I just think it's cold.

PHOTO DUMP!  May have duplicates, but needed you to see the cuteness of my cuties.

So I'm home today with Emma who has croup and an ear infection.  It ain't easy being a momma sometimes.  I wouldn't trade it for the world but I would take a vacation sometime soon ;)

Emma's Post from her 4 Month Update

Age: 19 Weeks
Weight & Height: At her 4 month appt. she was 14 lbs. 4.3 oz. and 26 inches long.  She is in the 93rd percentile for height and the 47th percentile for weight.
Things I enjoy: I like my new jump up and my bouncer.  I love babbling to mommy and daddy and giggling when they tickle me. 
Skills I've mastered: I can hold my head up no problem now. I can laugh with the best of them and I have discovered my hands and feet!
Looking forward to:  Grasping my toys and sitting up on my own.
Tough Times: I wasn't going to the bathroom regularly for mommy and daddy, but it's just because of my age and because i'm breastfed. They know I'm fine, but overreact with worry from time to time.  I'm also starting to teethe, so that can bring on some stress as well when I can't calm down. It doesn't happen too often, but I'm gonna have a tooth pop out any day now.
Exciting Events: I moved to the Kitten Room in daycare today, because we are all getting older and we need more space for when we get mobile.  I brought my teachers with me though, so mommy and daddy were happy about that.  
Looking forward to: Going to the lake house again for Labor Day and getting to hang out with Sheba and all of Daddy's side of the family.
