To Facebook or not to Facebook….

That is the question…I have been off of facebook for quite some time now, and I am rather enjoying it, being off that is. With our impending move coming closer, I have friends and family who will want to know what we are doing, where we will be and so on. Without facebook, I spend a lot more times with my kids, cook, sew, crochet, play, go outside. I spent a lot of time on the couch watching and waiting for people’s status updates, pictures, etc…Waste of my time.

I had more important things to do then spend time on facebook. Now that we are moving all the way across the country, is it going to be any different for me? Will I be in the habit of not getting on as much even if I do have it. Or will I be so consumed of taking pictures and needing to get them on facebook as quickly as possible so everyone can see my adorable children? ๐Ÿ™‚ Suggestions? Please?

Anyway…just a quick note of what was on my mind. I will update more soon, but today, I’m getting my babies back and going home to daddy. This was my last visit to my mom’s house before we leave. We have a lot of things to do before moving, and I don’t want to have to worry about driving any further that I need to. Plus, yaya misses us and we are going to the zoo tomorrow, weather permitting. ๐Ÿ™‚ Have a good day blog world!

2 Posts in One Day…I’m on a Roll

The only reason that I am posting again is because I am so excited to have my son back. He didn’t go anywhere. By back I mean, happy and healthy. Just one dose of medicine and he is laughing, eating, crawling around, did I mention eating?? Yes, I am a very happy mommy right now.

I will be even happier when my daughter comes back from being gone for almost a week at grammy and grampy’s house. Oh, how I have missed her. This next week is going to be tough though. I can tell, and she isn’t here yet. When she is at the grandparents, she gets spoiled, and I mean spoiled rotten. I will have to work with her all over again, with routine, what she eats, learning that no actually means no again…yes, the typical stuff that parents have to work with their kids on when they come back from grandma and grandpa’s house.

Well, anyway…I smell something unpleasant and am not looking forward to seeing what it is, not that I don’t already know. ๐Ÿ˜‰

My Poor Baby

I’ve been dealing with a fussy one year old for almost a week now. You would say, isn’t that normal? No, not really. I have very happy children, especially my son, he wakes up happy, he goes to bed happy, he’s just….happy. So when I say that he is fussy, there is something definitely wrong.

Last night, I went out for a few and daddy was home taking care of the boy. When I was about to leave to come home, I saw that he had called. When I called back, he told me not to worry when I got home because there was an ambulance in front of the house. Conner just about passed out and really scared him. Conner slept all night, waking up a couple of times just coughing and then going back to sleep. He was ok, but I took him to the Dr. today anyway.

I found out that he has an ear infection (which is probably the reason for his fussiness). His lungs are clear, he is just really congested. My poor poor baby. I don’t like it when he feels like this. He got medicine including an inhaler for when he has trouble breathing or starts coughing a lot.

Sick babies are no fun. Not because they don’t play or not that I enjoy them less, it just breaks my heart knowing that they don’t feel good, and I can’t do much about it. He is going to get better now and start eating and drinking like normal. That’s my prayer and proclamation. This whole sick thing is new to me cause my kids are never sick.

On another note, my monster girl is coming back tonight. I just wish it was sooner than later. I got her new coloring books, play dough, sidewalk chalk and color wonder finger paint. I hope it’s nice out tomorrow because this mom wants to play with her babies ๐Ÿ™‚

My Birthday Boy!

It’s Conner’s first birthday! It’s hard to believe that one year ago, I was lying in a hospital bed, giving birth to my second kid. A bouncing baby boy, and what a boy he has been. I couldn’t have asked for a better second baby. With my daughter, I was up all the time during the night, and that was something that I wasn’t really looking forward too again. Ever since he was just a few weeks old, he would sleep almost all night long, with the exception of some nights.

He loves to eat and won’t ever turn down food. He may spit it out, but he is always willing to try it. We went to IHOP today and we gave him some fries. Well, he ended up throwing them up because he shoved too many in his mouth. I was the good mom and caught it in my hand. I really wasn’t expecting what all came out. I thought it would just be fries. Anyway…Like any mom, I went to the bathroom, washed my hands and continued to eat, while Yaya couldn’t finish. hehe…It really was quite disgustingly funny.

He’s so been so happy all day, and really, he is just a happy little boy. He gets into everything and has to investigate any open door or cabinet. He loves to follow his big sister around. He says dada, mama, yaya, baba and jabbers more everyday. I’m so excited to see what the next year brings us. I love my baby boy, Conner J.

For a Baby Boy Room

I’ve been very busy with different projects for several different things, and I haven’t had much time to blog about anything. Also, there hasn’t really been that much to blog about, but here I am now. The husband fell asleep, the kids are in bed and I am still up. So I may be about to say the strangest thing ever, and it has taken me quite a while to come to terms with it, but I, a 26 year old daughter, is actually going to be a big sister.

I KNOW! CRAZY! RIGHT!?!

So it’s only a half sister, but still weird when my dad is 61. Don’t ask. Anyway…Since I can’t help but be nice ๐Ÿ™‚ I made something for the little squirt. Something totally out of the blue, and it helped me with my creative side. I’m kinda proud of it too since it was something that I came up with on my own.ย Obviously, they are going with a sports theme. Totally cute? Right? I was going to cut out a bat, but I got to thinking that that would have been too many. I think that’s it perfect the way it is. It’s all felt with embroidery thread for details.

The Wilson on the basketball wasn’t easy. I pinned the name to circle, embroidered through the paper and then tore it out. I didn’t know any other way to do it. It’s a little crooked, but it gives it character.

THe project cost a little more than what I hoping to spend, but if I could generate interest and sell this kind of stuff, I would love it! It only took me 2 days to create this. I’m thinking about trying animals or geometric shapes….something for my kid’s room whenever it is that we buy a house. Anyway…just a little post. Enjoy!
