What you’ve missed

Our house hold isn’t too exciting these days. Well….that depends. Here is a fun list of what’s happened since my last post. Enjoy ๐Ÿ™‚

Going to be bed at 9:30pm, waking up at 8am and still feeling exhausted and tired the next day.ย 

Emma ‘coloring’ on a mirror with her chap stick. Only to have it (heavy mirror) fall on her pinning her to the ground.

Tons of daddy daughter dates.ย 

TONS of talking about our vacation to Texas. Emma can. not. wait. ๐Ÿ™‚ Too bad we still have a month to go.

I’ve been watch all the episodes of MONK. Emma likes to say his name cause it makes me laugh.

Travis has been doing EVERYTHING and I’m so grateful. I married a great guy.

Emma deciding to put lip smacker lip gloss ALL OVER HER FACE thinking it could pass as make up. 3 days in a row.ย 

After said incidents she proudly walks into our bedroom in the morning showing us her ‘new make up’. Good lord, it’s FINGER NAIL POLISH. On her eye lids to her chin.

Crying as I watch track and field on TV. ย (hey, it was an amazing race!) I really really want to go to the Olympic qualifications in Eugene next month.

Feeling crazy loved on by friends who have and still are giving us food. Yesterday we got an Indonesian feast. Home made. Oh yeah, we’ll be eating from that for a week.ย 

Getting bigger! I think I’m showing earlier than with Emma. ๐Ÿ™‚

Have I mentioned I can’t wait for Texas?

Well, that’s some highlights. I’m sitting here listening to Dianna Krall eating a peanut butter bagel, my life is rough. hehe

I’ll get to blogging more soon, just don’t feel like it recently. But thankfully, I don’t feel that much pressure to. Peace out friends, take a walk outside for me. ย 


I went to the doctor yesterday excited to hear our baby’s heartbeat, meet my new OB and talk pregnancy. And as we saw beautiful baby’s heart beat and watch it do flip flops in me (which is one of my favorite parts of being prego) people started to ask more about my one super light time of bleeding weeks before. As more people asked I should have picked up on something but I didn’t and it wasn’t until my new really nice OB told me I have a condition calledย ย PLACENTA PRAEVIA. It’s not life threatening, to me, but can be dangerous for the babe.

And in my pregnancy I have stage three, meaning the babe is not out of the danger zone yet. I can still do normal things that would cause a hemorige and result in me losing this baby. However, that is not going to happen, but facts are facts. So I am now under strict orders to not lift, hold, pick up or even think about straining my core muscles. No cooking, cleaning (holla!), no playing with Emma, no grocery shopping, etc. And spend more time on the couch which I thought was impossible since I’m snuggled on it constantly. I’ve had to learn how to sit up without using my tummy muscles. Try it, I dare you. It’s hard.

My new OB said to come in a month to see the progress so I’m hopeful. Until then, if I don’t blog much, just imagine me on the couch/bed under a fleece blanket feeling sick. ย ๐Ÿ™‚

My mom is here helping of a bit (thanks mommy!) but what really has touched my heart is the support of our friends here that have organized meals (the most stressful part of my life right now) and some have offered to help clean.

Seriously. How humbling.

Thank you everyone for your prayers, food and helping hand. I can’t wait to tell you everything is in the clear and healthy. ๐Ÿ™‚

No I’m not laying on the side of some road dead…


*picture from a month ago, most days you can find me with a ponytail, pj’s and fleece blanket.

Just wanted to let everyone know I am still alive. ๐Ÿ™‚ I haven’t been feeling well enough to blog or feel inspired. Why?

Because we found out we are pregnant! Yahoo!!!

So I’ve been spending some quality time with our couch and will probably for at least another month. Would love your prayers, but so far everything is going well. ย ๐Ÿ™‚
