Bring it on!

Lex's birthday is just over two weeks away and wouldn't ya know it I'm gonna be busier than heck until then. I work full time both the weeks, I'll have to prepare and decorate and all the while battle this exhaustion that's hit me... Anyone have access to a caffeine IV drip? I just hope things calm down until Thanksgiving, that would be nice, too bad I can't spend the day after Thanksgiving in my pj's with my boys... darn work!

Tagged again

Since the beautiful Sarah tagged me I guess I'll play along.

7 Random facts about me:

1. Every morning I watch Little Einsteins and Mickey Mouse Clubhouse with Lex and actually enjoy them.

2.When I was a teenager I felt lucky to never have a period, seriously thought I was blessed lol.

3. I give shots to kids at work and almost every time I do it I can feel my heart start to race and I feel awful for a half hour after I do it, like a panic attack.

4. I was majorly depressed when my dr graduated from residency and left our clinic.

5. When I was a kid I convinced my brother to stick his finger in a pair of scissors and closed them on him, he has a giant scar because of it, wraps all the way around his pinky.

6. I'm jealous of mom's who had "average" sized babies. Lex was 9lbs 4.1oz so sometimes I feel like I got jipped of the tiny baby stage.

7. I want another baby soon and if I could be assured it's going to be a boy I would want it sooner.

Alright I'm going to tag...

I would sell my soul for sleep

Okay maybe not that far but still. Lex has been sick for the past couple days with last night being the worst so far. He was running a fever and I got only 3 hours of sleep... yucky. Nate isn't feeling well either so he can't help that much.

Lex is now a cloth diaper wearing baby! We (well I) decided to get him some to at least give them a try and I love them! They are so soft and cute and we didn't have a leak last night despite the amout of fluids I made him drink.

I suppose I should get us ready to go see the dr since both my boys are going today.

Monday I got a letter that I've been waiting for since the end of June. I passed my medical assistant certification exam! Not only did I pass but I was in the 95th percentile. This means a pay raise and higher consideration at job interviews which is great news.

My son shocked the crap outta me earlier, he took his first unassisted steps. I was playing on the computer and when I looked up to check on him he was already halfway across the room from the tv stand, he continued all the way to the shelf on the other side of the room. He has been walking every few times I stand him up too. I knew I would have a walker by his first birthday.

We are looking into toys for his birthday and I have a few ideas but what kind of toys do your kids have that they love?

Home Sweet Home

We moved into our new apartment this past weekend and it reminded me why I hate moving and I didn't realize we have as much stuff as we do. The new place is nice, the neighborhood isn't quite the best (we have the want to be kids out there, the ones that make trouble) but winter will be here soon and that makes a world of difference up here. I like it here as far as the space is concerned. Not so fond of having to do dishes in a small sink several times a day but I'll get used to it.

My little brother had dinner with us tonight and it was awesome. I love when Matt comes home because we never get to see him and he and I were always close. He told me when he came home he won't do much with Lex until Lex reaches his teens but tonight he was playing with Lex while I cooked and was trying to teach Lex new noises. And Lex loves his Uncle Matt, he was snuggling with him, it was so nice to see.

Busy busy busy

This week has been incredibly busy and time will continue to fly by until the two weeks I have off in the beginning of October.

My cousin's wedding was Saturday and it was gorgeous. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day (although a breeze would have been nice). Her husband was crying during their vows which were just beautiful. I know they'll be incredibly happy, just like I told her they would be when they started dating 5 years ago.

Lex started daycare yesterday. It's a home based daycare run by one of my mom's neighbors. He really seems to be enjoying it and she said she loves having him there because she has never encountered such a happy baby, he has yet to cry while there and he's been there for two full work days. He got really excited when I dropped him off this morning so that made me feel better about putting him into daycare

We are moving on Saturday, but we are starting to move things over Friday night. I can't wait for our move to be over and everything to be unpacked. What I can't wait for most? The washer and dryer we will have. Doing laundry in our own place instead of the laundrymat will be wonderful. I won't have to drag my son out in nasty weather just to make sure he has clean clothes, instead I can do it after work every couple days and we won't get the stains we have had in some of our clothes.

Nate started school yesterday as well and I think he'll do great despite his reservations about it. He may be older than a lot of students there but he's a lot more mature than he was when he was their age and now he has something to work for.

I better get back to housework and packing since Lex is down and I still have to make my dinner.
