14 week belly

looks like.

Have lost 1 lb
1 whopping pound

But its coming
Oh I know its coming.

Pictures Lost and Found

I don't remember taking these pictures,

I was uploading my camera today
and ta-da

I fell in love

Don't mind Kenna's Not Done Hair
Just admire the rosy red cheeks

and please ignore the fuzziness
(This was my camera on its way to breaking)

think of summertime
and fun

It reminds me of warmth
and simple pleasures.

Love it.

Who feels like making lunch?

Not me.

So this
has happened a lot
in the past few months

The kids don't seem to mind

and clean up is fast

Go ahead and judge me

I'm too tired to care.
and sometimes
sound good to me too.

Excuses Excuses

I have been basically absent from the blogging world
for the last couple of months.

I have many excuses for this.

my camera has been in the shop
and i don't like to blog with bad cell phone pictures
or no pictures.

is this.


And when you are living on the couch
Showering only every three days
(oh lets be honest, maybe every four days)
and wishing that your misery could somehow end

The creative juices
really have a hard time

when you exist to feel nauseous
and tired

I told Ryan
that I must be getting old
really old
because this was worse than I remembered
and I was not doing this again anytime soon.

Good man that he is

He pretended not to be horrified
at the state of the h0use every day

he pretended that I wasn't lazy
and that I didn't look like roadkill.

He was very supportive.

Today was our first doctor appointment

In case you can't tell
(who really can)

The joke was on us.

Thinking I was a pro,
I said,
"Is that the head, and the bum
and the umbilical cord?"

He said no,
there is one head,
and there is another head
and that line means
that they are in two different sacks
Which is very good.

There are two babies.

Its a good thing I was lying down.

and then I started to laugh

because only the week before
I had asked Caden if we should have a boy or a girl.

He said that we should have
a boy and a girl,
and we should name them
Chief and Lola.

What a kid huh?

So there are my "excuses"
for not posting.

Am I forgiven?
Since I have 2 really good reasons?

P.S. I am finally starting to feel better
so I hope to be back on the regular posting bandwagon soon.

P.P.S The printer on the ultrasound was broken
so the pictures are iphone pictures of the screen,
and we all know how I feel about those!

More to come at my 16 week appointment

Need a Monday Morning Laugh?

I did

Do not ask me how
or why

I just said say cheese.

I promise
I could not have paid them
to pose this way for the pictures.

Need a closer look?




I want to
print it out

and put it on my fridge
so I can laugh
every time I go by.

Kleenex with Extra Lotion Please!

I've had a nasty cold this past week
So we have been doing lots of this.

Snugglin on the couch with juice
and a movie.

I hope someday
I will have the energy to get out my fall decorations
but not today.
I also have two quilts and about 20 aprons to finish
but not today.
About 20 loads of laundry await me
but not today.

Send all of your extra energy and motivation my way.
I need it.

p.s.- I will be making no public appearances this week
I have a monstrous cold sore
from my top lip to my nose.
