What's new with you?

I feel like I need to go to sleep for the rest of the year. Who knew that being pregnant and working full time and being a full time wife and mother would be so tiring? Zoe is getting bigger and more precocious as the days stretch on. I never know what will come out of her mouth. She was introduced to the joys of play-doh last night. That was a lot of fun. That's what peeing in the potty gets her. Maybe it's working??

Nick is well...Nick. We hit a bumpy patch of just cohabitating and not really being a family. I didn't push it. He finally noticed I wasn't pushing it. Last night we talked and things seem to be looking up. I think it really is the rubber band thing. If I try to pull him closer, I just end up pushing him away but if I leave him alone, he wants to know why. I just let him come back to me. It was actually peaceful to get a little alone time for a while. I think we are back to being husband and wife instead of just Zoe's mommy and daddy. That's what we have to work on. The balance between both of those.

I have to go back to the doctor on the 18th and everything seems to be going fine. We have 74 days to go. Less than 3 months. Is it just me or is this pregnancy flying by? With Zoe I felt like she couldn't get here fast enough. With this one, I really am not doing that. My due date is the end of working outside the house for at least 6 months. I don't know if I can go back to that. I love working. I love having responsibilities and things that depend on me to happen. I love being able to hold conversations with actual adults. I am excited to see what this baby looks like though. Nick wants to do a 3D sonogram but I don't know if we'll do that or not.

We'll see how everything goes.

Going on a trip

I'm finally going to get to meet one of best friends ever online. I'm going to Birmingham. Less than 4 hours away to meet someone awesome. Of course, my mom is freaking out. She can't believe I'm traveling that far to meet someone I've never met before. I told her that I feel like I've known her forever. I'm leaving Friday after work. Zoe and I are excited for our first trip ever without Daddy. This is girls only. Salsa and chips to be provided.

A New Baby for Me?

Only 3 short months ago, I was a working mama, one child and one husband. My life was smooth sailing with the occasional upset due to childhood temper tantrums, broken Barney tapes, and lost cell phones. Now I am the mama to be to a new baby girl, one surly two year old and a husband who acts as if he is dying. Can you say stressful? :)

On Monday, we went in for a sonogram. Everything's fine with the new baby. Heartbeat is good, spinal cord looks good, legs and arms are long. We have a perfect baby girl, complete with enough estrogen to make my husband swear he's running away or going to start taking steroids. Three against one now. I can't help but think that it's poetic justice. His mom had three boys. He was surrounded by testosterone. I told him just to wait until there are three periods going on at once. Then he will really want to run away. :D

A New Home

I've found a new home at It's a warm, welcoming community filled with the best ladies you'll ever meet. It's friendly and full of women just sying to help each other out. I'm excited because the atmosphere over there is so much fun. Don't just take my word for it though. You should check it out. :)

It's funny how the little people don't mean as much...

Due to some in-fighting that most of us were not even involved in, MM will be no more as of Sept. 5. It's come as a shock to me, and probably everyone else. I guess that's what happens though when your online world exist at the mercy of someone else. I just wanted to say to everyone that I've enjoyed the time that I've spent with all of you. I will definitely miss you. Most of you know how to contact me if you need me or just want to talk.

I'm just a little shell-shocked at the rug being pulled from underneath my feet right now. Most of us have no problem with any other person on MM. I'll post more later but right now, I can't even fathom why someone would behave in this manner.

Beach Baby

On Sunday, Nick and I made the 3 hours trek to Tybee to take Zoe on her first trip to the beach. We had a blast. I'm very sunburned but I made sure to slather my fair haired girl with sunscreen. She did NOT like the water but loved the shower. She kept running and jumping in the mud puddles in the parking lot and then running back to rinse her feet. Then she managed to get away as I was changing her and streaked around the parking lot. LOL Only Zoe.

Testing, testing, one two three...

I'm new to this. First post and all. Hopefully, I'll find something to talk about. I guess I should do this as an introduction, right? I am a mom to Zoe, wife to Nick and just me. We have another baby on the way-about to make our little family of three become a family of four. I don't know if I'm ready for that but I guess I don't really have a choice right now, right? Ready or not, here comes baby. :)
