Marie Antoinette

Hello fine people of the blog world.  

Today, has been interesting. To say the least.  And if you are reading this it is only because Zachary is finally asleep and I have inhaled my Taco Bell and am completely satisfied with life. 

things were a little different just about an hour ago.   We started off okay enough this morning, but that was apparently the calm before the storm.   This house was crazy today ya'll!!!!  

Zachary has shown me how Bi-polar a Gemini toddler can really be and he has done it in a glorious fashion.  I have been questioning where the sanity is in getting pregnant with a second. 

At one point I became all Marie Antoinette today and stopped caring...  I gave him whatever he wanted.   With reckless abandon.   
Instead of writing out every painstaking moment, I will just post some pictures to show you how my day has gone with a toddler who has a huge molar ripping through his bloody gums.
                              Don't Judge me!!!  He's being quiet.
                              I think he has the sucker in the right spot.
                               The drool!!!  OMG!!!  THE DROOL!!!
    Sure, yep, pull my hair, who needs it! Doesn't hurt at all. LIES!
                                                   Life is horrible.
    I have a belly button... And a drool stain on my pants that looks like pee.
                                    And life is horrible once more.
                                                    Eh, I guess it isn't so bad.

And there you have it.   And I am aware that his crying picture is a duplicate... Mid picture taking I wondered when does taking pictures of your child screaming begin to look like child abuse.  So you blog world, only get the one.

Oh how I've missed thee.

Oh my BLOG!

I've missed you. My precious outlet from my own brain!

It's been awhile! I normally wouldn't take such an extended hiatus from writing, but, we've had some craziness here the last few weeks. 

I was planning on posting Friday, however, went to my Dr. appointment and they decided to try the Fetal heart Doppler on me at 12 weeks and some change..... And guess what, NO HEARTBEAT. So I was scheduled for an ultrasound for yesterday for viability. 

And all that is just depressing, who wants to write about that?  And basically all I've done the last four days is eat ya'll.  I couldn't sit still, sleep, think, so all the food in my house became my best friend.  Kiwi, Watermelon, Chicken flavored Ramen noodles (how I loathe/love thee), chips and salsa-SURE WHY NOT!, popcorn, omg, seriously you name it, I probably ate it over the weekend. 

I dare my Dr. to say I'm fat!!!  DOUBLE DOG DARE YOU!!!

Anyhoozers, on to a happy note.  Baby is fine, looking great!  Heartbeat of 157 last night (oh did I mention my ultrasound was at 7:30 p.m.?  WHO THE EFF DOES THAT?) ,  wiggly, kicking, hiccupping, sucking of the thumb, massive cuteness that now looks like an actual baby!!!  OMG NOM ON THE BABY CHEEKS ME WANTS TO! 

And we are officially about to send out Zacharys big brother cards!  But these below are not those, just pictures of wee baby in my belly.   Soak up the cuteness!!!!

Oh- And... I'm learning to crochet!!!!  I am actually feeling quite proud of myself, so don't tell me the hats are ugly... They took days, seriously days to make!!! 

 And then, there's this little boy, the star of the show.  Big Brother Zachary himself...   I love this kid. And yes, apparently I am the kind of mother that's like "Yea, that's great, just sit for this picture with that crochet hook stuck in the hat and don't eat it or poke your eye out with it."   No shame in my game.   

But speaking of big brother, I must go make him wake up because we have one heck of a busy day today.   In just a few hours, my house will be filled with coordinators, therapists, and E.I. workers for Zacharys I.F.S.P.  and goal writing and all that jazz.   Fun times!
