TV Time

Do you let your kids watch tv?
Let me tell you in the beginning of this pregnancy, TV saved me!!
I’ve always tried to be very careful what my son watches. He loves PBS kids and Disney, in fact his newest fav is Tinkerbell and the Great Fairy Rescue. (of course the hubs wasn’t thrilled… haha)

In the afternoons he enjoys his Sid the Science Kid, Sesame Street, Ni Hao Kai Lan and Word Girl.
He does get to watch the occasional Phineas & Ferb although I see no educational point to the show whatsoever.

I sometimes feel guilty about putting my son in front of the tv while I do something else but how else am I gonna get the dishes put away the kitchen cleaned and dinner cooked.
When I was struggling through morning sickness I would get home in the afternoons and turn on a movie and throw myself on the couch and let the TV watch my son until my husband came home. I felt guilty but it was the only way I could survive! Not even my zofran could help!
I saw this article on Baby Center today on What to Watch. Yay for most of my son’s favorite shows being on the list!!
I still do believe in going outside and playing instead of being glued to the tv but when I need a quick, easy and cheap baby sitter PBS kids has been there for me! haha
And yup, I know I owe ya’ll an update on the pregnancy, it’s coming.
Nothing fancy but its coming.

Our weekend in photos…

Daddy left us home alone… again… to go fishing.

Here’s a quick recap of our weekend… bowling, barbies, bikes and rest…

bowling party

We went to a bowling party for his cousin’s 3rd birthday and he had a blast!

barbies

The boy’s played with the birthday girl’s barbies.

Then we went across the street to Aunty’s house for a cookout since it was just the women home alone with the kids. The boy’s played on their motorbikes.

Who needs fun factory when they can just hang out in the back of a trailer on bikes!

Here he is being ‘superman’

lazy sunday

Guess all that playing on Saturday tired him out. This was him on Sunday, being lazy.

baby limes

And here’s an update on my lime tree… did you see my post on instagram?

I thought it would take about 6 months before we got any limes, I think it just might be sooner!!

Hope you all had a great weekend!

So, about that big news I had....



Remember we went on vacation?

Well, apparently what happens in Cabo, doesn't stay in Cabo!

I guess, I kinda have had an excuse for my major absence I've been having... I've kinda been, uh well, busy not feeling so well...


How far along? 16 Weeks

Baby’s Size: 4 1/2" long (acording to babycenter.com)
Heartbeat: we got to hear the heartbeat at the last dr apt a few weeks ago and it was at 140 bpm. We also brought our son with us and he was THRILLED to hear his baby's heartbeat and see the baby on the ultrasound.

Weight Gain:  at my last appointment 1.5 lbs since going on my scale about 3 lbs (but feels like 20!)

Bellybutton: in
Maternity Clothes: not yet
Mood: terrible! I've been so short tempered I feel so sorry for my husband and son!
I'll be sure to make it up to them as soon as I feel better!
I cannot stand heat at all! I have not even flat ironed my hair in months!
And to add misery to pain, my ac in my car went out and we had MAJOR problems getting the correct parts in to fix it! Let's just say I've been miserable!


Names: We can't agree on anything yet, but we have agreed to wait to seriously talk about it until next Tuesday


Gender: We'll find out next Tuesday!

Movement: not yet but I feel a lot of stretching going on


Sleep: Not that great and I could use a lot more! Some nights I get up to pee, a few time I woke up with leg cramps, but I started stretching before bed and so far it's made a big difference. I toss and turn a lot, seems like I just can't get comfortable and it's been so hot!!
Symptoms: Oh gosh! I have been so sick! It's slowly getting better but I still get sick and I'm really tired.
Food Adversions: for a while I could not eat roast chicken, I still cannot eat Rasin Bran, anything too oily or with lots of tomato sauce give me really bad heart burn


Food Cravings: pastries, pies, sweet dessert kind of cereal like cinnamon toast crunch, this past weekend it was sweet pickles.
This is all new to me since with my son all I craved was pastele and pinacbet.
What I am Looking forward to: having our level 2 ultra sound, finding out everything is ok and finding out the sex!!
So there it is!
I am slowly feeling better so getting back to kinda normal life.
I am starting to feel stressed out to get a bunch of our home projects checked off the list before the baby comes.
Number one being, getting my son's big boy room ready so we can move him over and use his room as the baby's room since it's across the hall from us.
Oh and one last thing... my mother in law has banned us from going on any more family vacations. My brother in law and his girl friend are due 4 days before us!

Loco Moco

It's lazy man Loco Moco's for dinner tonight!
 
 
Lazy because instead of making hamburger patties, I just cooked the hamburger and added the gravy to the mix.
Daddy got his eggs scrambled, Talon got his plain and had two servings and mommy had eggs over easy with melted cheese on top and some hot sauce!
 
 
 
DELISH!
I'm done... good night ya'll


Shower Caddy

Have you ever given much thought to your shower caddy? It’s always been a must in my shower and it’s always bothered me. Not to the point where it nags at my brain and I obsess over it, but the design just never seemed right to me.

Here are my thoughts:

First of all, I enjoy one of those shower heads, you know the handheld ones and I like mine extra long too so you can bathe a baby in the tub as well. But the tube thingie (very technical word there) that attaches to he head and the wall, always gets in the way when you have a shower caddy!

Secondly that little bit of post-drip (another really technical term) that happens when you turn the shower off always gets my soap all wet and mushy over time and it drips soap residue down the side of my shower wall. Makes me nuts!

What is a girl to do?!

Im not into the floor to ceiling type of caddy like this one for some reason, it doesn’t seem sturdy enough and I’d be the first to stub my toe on it and make it come crashing down.

Then of course the fab Allison over at the House of Hepworths pinned this…

{House of Hepworths Pinterst}

You guys have to click it to see!! I’m not giving it away!

I saw it and was like, DUH!

Why wouldn’t it work?

Genius!

So, following her advise, now I have this….

shower caddy1a

I don’t bang my arms against my shower caddy when I shampoo my hair, my soap doesn’t get all mushy, I don’t have soapy runny stains down the shower and on my shower faucet and I can finally look at getting one of those shower heads.

We totally used that tip and look, here is our shower caddy, still close and convenient, just across the shower on the other wall!

shower caddy2a

You wouldn’t believe how hard it was to find a darn hook!

Kmart, none… Walmart… none, Home Depot… not the right size either!

Finally found just the right one at Ace Hardware.

I can’t believe what an easy fix it was. And it was rejuvenating for me since its been a while since I did any kind of project.

shower caddy3a

Its been about a week since we moved the caddy to the opposite wall of the shower and I really do like it, sometimes it’s the easiest fix that makes the biggest difference.

Thanks guys for sticking around… things are changing around here and I’ve got a few posts getting ready to go…. Big Announcement coming up as well!
