More babies everywhere

Last night we found out one of our friends is pregnant.  She had a feeling but wasn't sure. So congrats to her and her man. Couldn't be happier for them. I guess we are at that age now where all of our friends are having little ones. It won't be long for us either. The time is getting closer

Its a jungle

<p dir=ltr>Our garden is doing really well right now. Most of our squash was lost back when the rain wouldn't stop but we have more now and our zucchini is going crazy. The dumb birds kept going after our strawberries but I fixed that. After 6 scrapes making 2 cages they are now safe. The corn got a visit from buckeye today. He almost got away with jumping in the garden but his tail gave him away. He got tons of little corn hairs stuck in his mop of a tail. It won't be long until we are eating healthy from our very own garden and I can't wait.

3 months togo?

With August sneaking around the corner really fast it has me feeling nervous and excited. We have the baby fund already to help put leifs mind at ease but what about mine. I wonder if i my mind will calm down or if I won't be calm until it happens.  The clocks ticking and I want kids and I know the time is coming but its still scary as hell

Zoo trip

I love the zoo. It was so much fun and hannah was great. She is a very easy going kid so she was prefect for leif to hang out with. He did good with her and had a good time. Now we are one step closer to leif feeling good about having a child soon. He still says August is when we will start trying but I don't think he realizes that its really close to August.

going to the zoo

I love the zoo its so great. we are going this week and im so excited. the animals make the whole day fun, whether you are looking for the brave squirrel in the exhibits or waiting for 2 animals to do something gross. its never boring.  we are going with our friend Cassi and her daughter Hannah. its going to be good for Leif, I like that he is getting use to hanging out with little ones so he will get more excited about having babies soon. we will se how it goes. Hannah is a good kid and she is perfect for Leif to spend time with because she is such a cool kid. updates will come soon about how the zoo trip will go.

Feeling good

Finally we have a desktop again. I killed the last one watching gossip girl on Netflix.  I guess all six seasons were just too much for our old computer to handle all in a row. Then I moved on with the laptop and I didn't have true feelings for it. There is just something about a laptop that I don't like for an everyday computer.  So leif found me a new desktop that can handle my need to stream the whole series of things in less then a week. So excited and confused by the new computer.  Windows 8 takes a little while to get use to

as the time draws closer to august I am beginning to ask more and more questions to my friends and family.  lately ive been asking about breast milk. I heard so many things about breast feeding that im not sure what is right and wrong. someone said that you cant go over 8 hours without pumping or you will dry up. someone told me you could freeze your milk if you pump it. one person said drink a dark beer if you are having problems getting milk started. please help teach me. comments are wanted I would like to know all you can about the rules of breast milk. I think its important to start babies off right with what they are eating but I don't know what's right and wrong

with me and leif both hating to take pictures im not really sure how to get into the habit when kids come into the picture.  our parents made us take a lot of pictures on our vacation this year so they could actually have a pictures of us. and I like having the pictures, it has me inspired to put pictures up on our walls now. we bought our house in june and still don't have anything on the walls. well that will all change once I get something to hang things with. so now that I want to hang things on our walls I think the picture taking might come a little easier but how often do you need to update your kids pictures and how often do you give them out. some people I think go over board with giving new pictures out too much. if someone ask for them I understand but I have like 20 pictures for each of our nieces and nephews first years. what are we going to do with 60 pictures of kids that aren't ours. I could have a whole wall covered if I put them all up or do you put up the most recent. but im not sure so they sit in a drawer doing nothing. maybe now I will put some up now that im in the picture mode but I don't know what to do with all of them. so how many times should you get your kids picture taken and how often do you give it out (im thinking upon request).

mission success

mission "leif hold a baby" was a success. we went down to see new baby gavin and his parents (leif's brother and sister in-law) and leif held the baby for ten minutes. now if you have ever met my husband you would know that he is terrified of babies and he thinks they are really ugly. this was the first baby he has held in a long time, like im talking 8 years.  it was so cute. he refused to lower his shoulder for the first 4 minutes because he thought it was the only way to keep the head up. finally Natalie (baby mom) showed him how to do it and reluctantly he lowered his shoulder to the height of a normal person.  it was pretty funny. I think knowing that his brother can do it will help get leif ready for it. at least he held the baby. gavin did good too. he farted in leifs arms to help calm leif down. man that kid was gassy. when we left I asked him if he felt more comfortable with the idea of having one now that he held one and he said hell no still scary.  what am I going to do with him. haha, the date is getting closer to august.

cutting back and saving

every penny counts. isn't that the trust especially when planning for a baby.  to put Leif's mind at ease we have already started extreme saving for when we have a kid. we are both doing 20 bucks a week and that might not seem like a lot but by this time next year we should have a baby almost here ( hopefully) and the 20 bucks a week will be 2000 dollars just for babies and expenses.  man im glad im a budgeting queen. Leif is just so worried that we wont have enough money to take the time off to have a kid let alone pay our bills and get everything a little one would need.  luckily we are going to see baby Gavin tomorrow and Leif will be able to talk to his brother and relax about the stress of babies, once they come they come and you love them and you make it work. cant wait to meet the little baby Gavin.

at the rain dries up the weekend comes to an end, how fitting that the kids have to go back to school when its sunny. hopefully all the field days get rescheduled. I know a lot of kids were very upset that they all got rained out down here. hope everyone has a good cinco de mayo.

Friday, May 3, 2013


rain rain go away. the sunny has not be seen here in three days. if the weekend if like this everyone is going to have to get some inside actives for the little ones while its wet outside. our little one loves (buckeye) loves the rain. not cool. I have a soggy doggy now but the garden really likes it, the squash plants are freaking out they love it so much. im beginning to think the garden is too be but the freezer can hold what we don't eat.

veggies and more

our garden is coming along wonderfully. we have 12 squash blooming, 4 or five peppers and 6 tomatoes. cant wait to eat all of them. now the only trouble is to find recipes for tasty dinners with all of the veggies we will have. not to forget about the giant thing of blueberries I got from a friend that will be turned into blueberry cupcakes later today. I'm going to love just going outside to find out what is for dinner or what we have so much of we have to freeze it or give some away. lets hope it all grows big and strong. the ants were trying to get our strawberries yesterday so we had to pick up cinnamon( it keeps them away), so lets hope a new insect doesn't want them now.
