We Have A Heartbeat!!!!

Woohoo! I went for a dating ultrasound today even though I know the dates by heart. I didn't argue too much since I didn't mind seeing my little baby! It had a wonderful heart rate of 153 bpm. It was so awesome hearing that little whoosh whoosh whoosh. Landon was great during the ultrasound and sat and watched the "TV." You can't tell much, but below is the baby!

An Update About Radomness

Wonder where I have been lately (probably not), but I am going to tell you anyway! Tuesday I had a training to re-certify myself so I can restrain students. While I didn't need this at all last year you never know. Good thing is that I will not be restraining students this year because of my expanding belly! YAY! I have Wednesday and Thursday were spent in a pine straw basketry class. Who ever knew you could make baskets out of pine straw! You can though and I now know how. I am excited to get my hands on more pine straw and make a bigger basket.
Above are my two pieces of work. They are a little rustic, but they are there! I plan to keep on practicing. If you would like to learn how to do this look here.

I have been taking Landon to the library all summer and we have finally read 45 books. He got a cool bug catcher, but even cooler this:
It's his "toota!" He is very proud of his tattoo and will gladly show it to anyone and everyone!

You might ask why not recipes lately...well because my dear friends I haven't cooked hardly anything at all. The thought of cooking makes me sick. We unfortunately have been eating out a lot. I hope to get back on track. I decided to take this coming week off from trying new recipes in hopes I can find some energy and the stomach to cook. Food itself doesn't make me sick because I am starving all the time, but the thought of mixing food makes me sick! Fun huh?

Speaking of eating, we were sitting in the living room the other night and I could have sworn I smelled scrambled eggs. Well you can guess what that lead up to...David cooking me eggs. Isn't he great? Shortly after I had a plate of scrambled eggs with a little bit of salt and pepper and cheese. YUM!

My 1st Dr. appointment is Tuesday. I am just so thankful to have made it this far. Every day that goes by is another day that I am still pregnant and another day closer to meeting this little baby. Landon is still telling me that I have a bunny rabbit in my tummy. Thank goodness I am having another c-section...the thought of rabbit ears coming out any other way is frightening!

Last, but no least...THANK YOU Amy for featuring me on your blog! Yay for Pay It Forward Friday!

Thursday Thirteen

I am so glad ohamanda posted hers! It gave me inspiration to do the same and get a post in for the day!
  1. First and foremost, I am loving the fact that I still feel very pregnant. I'm bloated, hungry all the time, tired, and some other things I care not to share with the entire world...but I FEEL PREGNANT! This is a wonderful thing.
  2. I went grocery shopping today and totally forgot to get some things that I need. I'll blame that on pregnancy brain.
  3. Tomorrow is the 4th which means we are grilling out yummy food. At least I didn't forget to buy that!
  4. Landon is loving his new 5 pack of Matchbox cars. Oh to get excited over metal cars.
  5. I just had Laughing Cow Cheese and it was so good. If you have never had any, you HAVE to try it. I can guarantee you that I didn't forget to buy it today.
  6. David is off all day tomorrow and I am thrilled. We hope to get some much needed yard work done. I will make sure to wear my gloves though while digging around in the dirt.
  7. Landon is loving the fact that he can now chew gum. He went a whole 2 hours today before he swallowed it. It was my fault that he swallowed it. I gave him a corndog for lunch and got so excited about eating it and forgot that the gum was still in his mouth. How much gum can a child swallow before getting sick?
  8. My nap today wasn't nearly as long as I would have liked for it to be.
  9. I am trying to read, read, read this summer. I actually currently have 5 books from the library sitting on my counter waiting on me. I just keep falling asleep when sitting down to read!
  10. David and I are on season 3 of Lost. We didn't really start watching it until this past season (season 4), so we are getting the past seasons from Netflix and watching them. I have to say the show is pretty darn addicting.
  11. I love my Landon Bug, especially when he argues with the TV about which letter is which. I promise one day he will get them right...
  12. It looks like it could rain outside...if only we could get so lucky. Half of our grass is dead and the rest of it is on it's way out it is so dry.
  13. Whew, thinking of thirteen things is hard to do when all you really want to do is lay down and finish your nap!

Where Are My Fat Pants?!?!

Someone help me here. I know it is bloating, but jeez! Give me a break. I had a meeting at work today and had to look decent and threw on one pair of capris....yeah that didn't work. I pulled out my fat capris and they fit! Uh Oh! I am currently living in elastic shorts while at home, but I can't wear them everywhere! We are going out of town this weekend and I am seriously thinking about wearing a pair of my smaller maternity shorts. I can still wear a normal shirt and I think they will look fine. No one has to know...

On a positive note, I have lost about 30 pounds since the time I got pregnant with Landon. I have also gone down a size or two. This might mean my maternity clothes are all too big. Darn huh? Guess that means I might have a lot of shopping to do! :)
