Making it through the day

Weekends are great, Zach naps and mommy naps with him. Weekdays not so good. Mommy needs a nap but can't take one at work (how bad would that be). But Zach gets a nap so he is full of energy when mommy picks him up. This first trimester is really doing a number on me. Hopefully it will better during the second.

This weekend was fun. We went to a birthday party on Saturday and on Sunday stayed at home and filled up Zach's pool. He had a ball, I went to pull out the video camera and found out it was already dead. It is now charging at home. So hopefully we will be able to capture some video this week. I love how Zach motivates me to want to do more. And just think now with a second on the way I should have that much more motivation.

This is from camping the other weekend. It was loads of fun. Looking forward to going at the end of July.

On another note. I know that people drift apart, but why do I feel like crap when it happens. Sometimes you just realize that you don't have much in common with people anymore or that they just don't get you anymore. Maybe its that they really don't care or didn't care in the first place. I guess sometimes I just feel like I tried my best but in the end it didn't end up working out. I just thought that I was a bigger part of their life and come to find out I am barely a part of their life at all.

Anyone know HTML so that I can make my blog look better. I have no clue how to write it. I guess I just need to get a book and then I should be able to figure it out. Only 5 more days until my first appointment for the baby and I cannot wait.

Hopefully this weekend will fly by (that sounds odd) so that it will get here faster. Zach has a birthday party to go and then we might be going to a baseball game. Sunday will be our day of rest, which actually means, laundry and cleaning, but still I don't think I have to leave the house on Sunday.

Dear Poppet

Please stop making me feel so sick. I know you are just letting me know that you are in there and you don't want me to forget but don't worry I won't forget. I already love you so you don't have to prove your in there.

I guess its a good thing that you like fruits and veggies more than you like sweets but even the smell of lasagna is making me sick so what do I do? What am I allowed to eat? I could afford to lose a few lbs or more but that wasn't my goal during pregnancy.

Love always,
Your mom

Things that make you go

running for the trashcan or the nearest bathroom. So my big news. I am 7 weeks pregnant and this new baby, lets call the baby Poppet (I just like the word), has me feeling sick all morning long. Its so funny how things work out. With Zach I was not sick one day, well that is until after I had him, but thats another story. So I figured this would be the same, guess I was wrong. I know that every pregnancy is different and it has nothing to do with the gender of the baby, but still I am going to hold out some hopes for a little girl. Don't get me wrong, I would love to have another handsome baby boy, then Zach would have a best friend for life. They wouldn't even be three years apart so either they would fight like the dickens or they would be the greatest friends. I can pretty much gaurentee that if I have a little girl that Zach will love her but whos to say that they would be friends. I know my brother and I weren't exactly friends until we became older. I still don't think that my brother and I have hugged to this day. I know he loves me and I love him but thats just our relationship, it works for us. Plus, my brother is, well, my brother, and he has his very own personality.

Our Poppet is due on 3 February, there goes my chances for having an outdoor party. But we are so excited. I can't wait to be a mom again. I love being a mom. Its the best feeling in the world. I also think Zach will be the best big brother. He is so good with babies at daycare. I know there will be hard times but all in all I think he will do well.

Now if I could only get him potty trained and out of diapers by that time. I guess that will be my goal. Have Zach potty trained before Poppet arrives. Any advice would be great.

Although I am super excited about having Poppet I am also scared but I think that is pretty normal. Some people think I should of waited because I haven't had enough time with Zach others think I waited too long. I guess I will not be able to please everyone but I shouldn't have to worry about pleasing everyone anyway. People are allowed their opinions, but that doesn't mean I have to agree with them. I think this is the right course for us and that is what matters. I am also hoping to have at least one more child after this (hmm maybe I should let Jesse know).
