im lying here in bed as usual bored out of my mind. But i did start something productive while on bed rest.... im super excited about it.
Last night we had a late night at DH's Christmas party, so I was TIRED this morning. At least DS2 only got up once for a bottle at 5 am. Twice this week he was up 2 times a night.
Today I am cleaning the house, have to run to the store to pick up a few ingredients to make a dessert, and my Dad is coming to visit tonight! He is in town teaching a course. He'll stop by around supper time and we'll spend the evening over at our church Christmas party. I am singing on the program at the Christmas party, so I really hope my voice returns in the next 7 hours.....I've been sick for SO LONG.
Not sure how to anticipate my Dad's reaction when he sees the belly. He'll be the first person in our family to know :)
In other random news, the "7" key is not working on my computer keyboard. It won't type. I have to paste a "7" I copied from a document every time I want to type a 7.......LOL!
Sounds like a busy day. I hope your voice returns for choir tonight. I think your dad will be happy!
I am kinda being crafty and frugal... i have started couponing! I have been learning a lot about it online and by watching extreme coupoining on TLC. I made a binder and have started clipping coupons. i found a site that has a 8 week intro to couponing program that i like. Now if only i could go out and use them... but have to wait on that part
Sandra, can't wait to hear your dad's reaction. :-) I had my sister tell my mom that I'm pregnant again. She ALWAYS freaks out initially, but then is fine. I just didn't want to hear this time. My sis called me up and said she's NEVER doing my dirty work again. She thought I was over reacting, but my mom totally freak on her!!! LOL However, by the time my mom called me the next morning she was excited and happy about it. So glad I made my sister tell her, and I didn't have to hear the freak out this time. ;-)
I just put my baby boy in nighttime boot camp to get him to sleep in his pack n play the whole night. Normally he's in bed nursing pretty much the whole night. Night one was TERRIBLE. He slept his usual 2 hours in the pack n play and then woke up and thought he was going to come in bed with me. Well, he spent the next 3 hours screaming with me telling him, "no, lay down and go to sleep." Night 2 was a great success though. He slept from 8:30 until 2 without waking. Then he just made a little peep. I quickly grabbed him, nursed him, put him down and he slept until 6:45! Night 3 was great as well. He slept from 8 until almost 4 in the pack n play, then made a little peep, I grabbed him, nursed him and put him down and he slept until just after 6! Yeah! So I'm happy. Great progress for just 3 days. He should be to the point of sleeping through the night in the next week or two. :-)
Kia, so what is your productiveness?!?!
Oh couponing!! That's a great thing to do while on bed rest! :-)
Sandra- I'm excited to hear about your dad's reaction too. :)
Laurie- sounds like sleep training is goin successfully! I've been working on the transition from crib to bed with my son for 3 months and he is really starting to get the hang of it now. He was so easy when he was a baby. But being a toddler, he is very difficult and set in his ways. My daughter was so easy to transition that this is a total change for me.
Kia- I've always wanted to learn how to coupon really well. I would love some of the savings these women get! I just use the few coupons that come in my paper. I think the most I have ever saved with coupons on an order is about $30. But usually it's about $5-$10 per order.
As for us- we have a wedding to go to tonight. I tried on my MIL dress and its still a little big in the chest area. So I put on my dresses and I'm able to still get in them! But it's just extremely noticable that I'm preggo. Looks like Everyone will find out tonight!
Well, we're off to climb a mountain! If we take any pics I'll post some later tonight or tomorrow. :-)
