Just so you know. . .

I tried on some pants I wore before I had M'. . .and they fit. Then I got brave and tried on some pants I wore before I had O'. . .and they fit. Now the pants I wore before G'. . .well I didn't want to push my luck today, so I didn't try those. One of these days I will. . .and maybe, just maybe they will fit and the Ipod Nano will be fully mine.

The pool came out. . .and we had fun. Sleeping babies & my work begins. . .laundry.

My little peanut. . .

M' just turned 4 months, which means it was time for a doctor's visit. She's a little one compared to the other two. M' weighed 13 lbs. 12oz. (50%) and was 24 inches long (45%). Everything went well at the doctor. Here are the latest developments with M'.
-Moved into her own room.
-Started eating sweet potato.
-Squeels with delight when talked to.
-Drools like crazy.
-Sucks on fingers all the time.
-Last night she slept from 7pm-5:30am=amazing.

Testing, Testing.

I gave in and paid the $5 for memory. I guess I get 1GB for free and for $5 a year it bumps me up to 20GB. Hopefully this will work. . .YEA! It worked. So Saturday we planted a garden. Kind of. We planted flowers, cilantro, peppers, tomatoes, watermelons and more flowers. We probably did it all wrong. Last year I froze everything so this year we have four 9 by 13 pans on the porch with our treasures in them. If something grows I will be so excited. I check them every day but still nothing. Mike says I need to wait at least a week but I'm dying to see something poking out. I'll keep you posted. I did have some very good little helpers that helped plant the seeds.

Too Many Pictures. . .

So I've put too many pictures on this thing, so now, in order to keep adding pictures I need to pay for extra storage. Apparently I only get 1 GB for this blog and I've reacted my max. Hopefully I'll be able to figure out the problem. . .soon.

Past few days. . .

Time seems to be flying by. Saturday we died eggs and played Just Dance. Sunday night I was sick with a weird fever and body aches. It didn't last too long but I'm still feeling sore and my throat is on fire. Monday, Miss Dower from BFA came for a visit. Tuesday we explored the zoo, ate McDonald's and went to main street for dinner. Wednesday we said our good byes, played in the backyard and are onto naps. I'm still tired and feel like I could sleep for a week. Mike starts his new class on Monday so things will really start feeling busy then. Overall, all is well. M' has started sleeping better during the day. We had a light bulb moment and realized I had started drinking 2 cups of coffee in the morning instead of just one. . .hence her not sleeping in the afternoon. Not very complicated. . .duh. It just took us a bit to figure it out.

Product Review.

So on a whim, I bought this product at Target. I needed a new face soap so I got this neat little one. . .actually I got the cream cleanser. I looks just like this but in a pink bottle and the soap is white not clear. Anyways, it comes with a little face scrubber thing. My expectations were low. I had seen a commercial and the scrubber looked cool so I bought it. After using this product once a day, in the shower for the past week I love it. My face feels different. My skin seems smooth and softer. The little scrubber things is gentle and feels like its actually doing something. Its fully made of plastic so I don't feel like its dirty or gross after I use it, I just rinse it off. . .another plus is that the bottle is clear so I can see exactly how much soap is left instead of trying to balance it on its top or squeeze it to death. So that's my thoughts on this new soap, so if you are in the market for some face soap I'd definitely recommend this one.

Half way there. . .

8 pounds down and 8 to go. This week I reached my halfway point. I'm down to 153, which means consistent loss for the past 9 weeks. (definitely not normal for me, I struggle with consistentcy) This week I lost a pound which is more then usually. I seem to be losing on average 1/2 a pound per week. Hopefully this still means there will be a lose next week. I've got 3 1/2 months left to get rid of the last 8 pounds so very doable if things continue like this. More good news is I'm about 1-2 pounds about from being at my pre-M' weight. . .so all is good on the weight lose front.

Recently. . .

-Mike had been staying late at work.

-I've been attempting to keep three kids busy.

-G' is trying to only suck her thumb in bed so she can go to Chuckie Cheese.
-O' is being as boyish as he can be (throwing sticks, swinging hammers, stomping in water. . .and the list goes on)

-M' is working on rolling over. . .she is so so close.

-G' is enjoying her last month of being 3.

-Obie is in love with his diaper.

-M' seems to talk longer naps when she is put in O's bed.
-G' got her toenails painted with pink sparkles, O' got blue sparkles, M' got none and I got all three.

-G' and O' have been playing so so well together.

-G' has been practicing soccer.
-Tonight was my grocery shopping day. . .and it was good.

-Mike starts his class the last week of March. . .we are not looking forward to it beginning but when this class is over his master's degree will be completed, so that we look forward too.

-We finished the kids closet. . .G' loves it and wants to sleep in it.

-Mike is taking all three kids out tomorrow so I can get a few things done around the house. . .this is the first time he has taken all three out by himself.

Gracie Quote.

"Obie! Lets play Snow White. I'll be Snow White and you be Grumpy!"

There once was a little girl. . .

who would sleep so so well at night. 9 hours straight to be exact. Night after night. 7:30 p.m.-4:30 a.m. Lovely. This made two parents very happy. . .but now, this same little girl has decided to stay awake all day with small 20 minute cat naps. The makes two parents very sad. One Mommy needs a break. A break without a little girl in her arms. At this exact moment that Mommy has a break. . .she is just hoping it will last more then 20 minutes.
[when these cat naps get longer there will be more posts. . .until then. . .]

What did you say?

Today when we got home I let the kids play in the backyard for a few minutes before name time. Of course they picked the messiest thing they could find and they climbed into the little pool which is filled with sand, wet sand. So when it was time to come in I told the kids to brush off their feet. . .because it was wet they weren't very successful. Grace looks at me and says, "Mama, get my feet wet and baptize them." "What?!?" Did she really say what I thought she said. She started laughing and said "Get my feet wet so you can baptize them." It was pretty funny. I asked where she had heard that and she said she didn't know, she just knew it. So into the kitchen we went. I plopped her and Obie up on the counter and their feet were "baptized."

Mar 8
Partly Cloudy
63° High 45° Low

I can handle this. Tomorrow we venture off to the zoo.

Back to us. . .

Us= Stephanie, G', Obie & M'


6pm Tuesday=Us, all of us. Mike, Stephanie, G', O' & M'

G', O' & M'=Happy

Stephanie= Extra Happy

Its offical. . .

my hair is falling out. Really. If I could change one thing about having kids it would be this. With every kid I've had, it seems like when they reach 3-4 months my hair starts to fall out. . .like massively. Handfuls. Then I'm left with the worst little hairs sticking out all around my hairline. It is really awful. Awful. I haven't found any fantastic hair cut to hide the evidence and the bad hair days seem to go on for months. Does anyone else have this problem or do I have some weird deficiency that is causing this? If you had this problem any solutions. . .maybe I should head on over to the style crusader for a hair donut. . .or maybe she'll just send me one. (wink, wink)

Saturday Walk

Today we walked down to main street. We got a late start since we finally got new licence plates for the Honda. It all worked out though, when we got down to the river there was a shriners parade. There were funny men riding little motorcycles, pirates, and people dressed up as wild animals. . .oh yeah and roller derby girls who where all rather round and pretty scary looking in their fishnet tights. Scarey. Anyways, it was interesting but the kids had a great time waving to everyone. After they all passed we walked along the river and then attempted to have lunch. The kids were having issues and the waitress seemed less then excited to wait on us so we left and had lunch in our backyard. I think everyone was happy about the choice once we got home. On our walk were able to get some cute pictures of G' and O'. M' slept the whole time in the carrier so none of her. . .

Taste of Spring

Finally, a little warmth. Since March first the temperature has been gradually getting warmer and warmer. We have been taking it all and enjoying it oh so much. This past week were able to play in the back yard and we even went to the playground. No jackets were needed. It was great.

Little late. . .

For my birthday Mike ordered me a bunch of bold coffee from Amazon. A while back we got a new Keurig Coffee maker. It uses little K-Cup coffee pod thingys. It is the best coffee maker ever. It makes individual cups so you can have a different type each time, you can pick the cup size and it can make hot chocolate and tea too. Anyways, its great. I love, love, love it. I love the coffee he ordered and they love the boxes they came in.

Weigh in. . .again.

Wednesday I did my Wii weigh in. 154.8. Now I can say I'm in the low 150s. So thats that. Anonther week down.
