Can't ever forget

So last night I was going to put Elena to sleep. She hadn't had a nap all day and was tired. So I lay her in her bed and bend over her bed to give her a hug, she grabs my head and pulls it to her chest. Then she sings me a song, "Elena child of God" over and over again, and pets my head. After only a min the singing stops, then the petting stops. I slowly try to lift my head, thinking she can't already be asleep. Without opening her eyes she pulls my head back down. This went on for a few more minutes, me trying to get up and her hugging my head. She was asleep, but didn't want to let go. In that moment I missed my little girl, even though she hasn't grown up yet. I love her so much and in those tender moments I can feel the joy of being a parent, and as crazy as it sounds all the screaming and tantrums are forgotten, and the moments of frustration just melt away.

pregnancy talk

So I think I might be entering the dangerous stage of my pregnancy. Well, by dangerous I mean the stage were I gain way more weight then I need to. Today everything I put in my mouth tasted good and I wanted more, of everything. The only reason I say I am just entering it is because when I ate a bunch of something that yuck feeling came. That means I am not there yet. With Daniel I gained 47 pounds and with Elena around that, a little less I think. But with Daniel I ate whatever and didn't exercise at all. With Elena I ate better, but still didn't exercise. This pregnancy so far I haven't been too picky about what I eat, since I have been feeling way more nauseous then with the other two. but I have been careful not to eat too many sweets. And so far I have been exercising at least once a week. I guess I now need to be more careful about what I eat, and a another day of exercise each week. Don't get me wrong I know I am going to gain at least 35 pounds and I am ready for that, and know it is healthy for the baby. But I just don't want to gain more then I need to. So that is it for today.

Potty Training

So it started today. It was 0 for 4. She peed her pants twice, then twice she peed just a little we went to the bathroom and she sat there forever and never peed. Tomorrow I am going to wake up early so I can get her on in the morning, she is dry all night, so she has a lot to get out in the morning. She can hold it, I can see since she only peeded a little then held it for hours. She is dry while sleeping. She can pull up and down her pants and underwear. She will sit on the potty for a long time. She even told me when she peed a little bit in her underwear. Long story short, she is ready. I am not, potty training while prego, not my favorite, but that was a choice I made when I got pregnant so here we go. I will update here since not everyone on FB really wants to hear all about it, and well, if you don't want to read about it here, then you just don't have to. :-)

Life is going WAY too fast!

I can't keep up with everything/anything. I am always just catching up, getting everything done a week or so after it should be. I don't really like living this way. I am normally on top of things, at least most of the way, but this is just not working.
