April showers...

had our first ultrasound, baby was waving his/her arms was cute. all of this yuck has a purpose...I try to remind myself of that so I can keep a good attitude. It is not easy though. just being honest.

April Showers....

I feel like April has been one long shower of yuck. Pregnancy is just not nice to me. I am 10 weeks and feeling wishful/hopeful that it will truly only be first trimester I am this yuck.
Oh yes, and Lance is having knee surgery next week. Nothing major, but enough that he'll be needing some TLC. April is just not our month this year.

May Flowers....

please please please let May bring flowers and no more showers...

Judah looks at me and asks "frow up mommy?" all concerned and if I do, he pretends like he is too. I guess it's nice to have a little commiseration :) to bad his diapers are killing me these days...phew! good thing he's so cute :)

On another note...I ate an orange today that was divine. so delicious. most of the time my taste buds are not kind to me, but the oranges are workin'.

Oh yes, and I cry all the stinkin' time. The hormones are raging :) watching the final season of Oprah is not helping :) hehe

good news is we have a renter for our house in Mpls. it's a June 1st rental, so it will be empty a month...not ideal, but better than empty longer.

Last night my little bro and his family had a tornado touch down on their least it looks like it and sounded like it...they were hiding in the basement. They only lost some trees, shingles and a fence. Their neighbors were not so lucky. I was crying when I found out. I just kept thinking what I would have done if something had happened to them. Oh Lordy I am glad they are safe.

I guess those are the highlights of my little life. I don't go anywhere cause driving in a car guarantees me getting sick. So I stay home and I'm wearing out our couch currently. Judah has had some friends take him for play dates and we've had folks come over and help us out which has been a blessing.

double trouble

Well Hello Blog friends/family/lurkers, it has been way to long.

So this will be a bullet point update sort of a post...quick and getting us all up to speed...hopefully you will comment and tell me how you are doing! Not only have I not been blogging, I haven't been on facebook or anything really that keeps me in the loop on people's lives.

I went to WI to visit my parents...wasn't sure what to expect since my dad had previously been on his death bed. But the first day I was there he was up playing I guess that is good. lol. He is holding on and you know he feels better when he gets grouchy so I guess until the next time he gets sick, this is his new normal.

I had planned to stay longer in WI but here's the thing...dun dun dun...I am pregnant. Yup. As of today I am 8 weeks and 4 days. I wish with all of my heart I could say that it is a breeze this time...however...that would just be a lie. I have thrown up several times a day for almost a week now. I feel awful and I am discouraged because I was SO hopeful it would be different this time. I guess I am just praying it only lasts the first trimester instead of the whole pregnancy like last time. I'll take that if that's all I am offered.

Judah turns two on Wednesday. I am just so happy to be his mommy. Although lately he likes to call me "jamie" so whatever. ha. he's very cute when he does it and he is insistent that that is who I am when we try to correct him. So we'll see how long this phase lasts.

Anyhow...we had a really super fun party today and I will post more pictures and stories from it later, but for is a picture of little jbyrd with his cake:


I wish I had pictures of all the adults with blue mouths afterwards. lol. that icing was potent.

I am excited to have another child...but to be honest, if I could skip the whole pregnancy thing I would. I totally would. It is just evil to me. Please please pray that it subsides. I would greatly appreciate it.

So that is the latest and greatest in my little life. I hope this finds you well!
