Baby It's Cold Outside.

Yes it's is! Good thing me and little guy are inside and snuggled up. Well since he passed out a little bit ago I thought it would give me time to work on my blanket. Well baby blanket. I finally figured out how to do the waves. The term for it is the ripple afghan. And I did it in rainbow colors. I'm excited because it took four months to figure out since mommy dearest didn't want to teach me her tricks. But that's ok she is amazed I learned how to do it from a book haha!

Well update on pregnancy #2, I have slowly gotten out of the morning sickness routine and my stomach has become more settled. So yay! Also baby is the size of a big plum so that's progress. I've been trying to keep myself relaxed and happy so I don't have to much uncomfortableness. Hence why I started a baby blanket.

Crochet just seems to make me relaxed and feel good. Makes me feel like I'm being the cool mom who can make my kiddos their Harry potter scarves when the time comes lol! I'm so weird I know but I'm sure my children will love the Harry Potter series, I know I did!

Speaking of books, I've begun to teach Scotty the ABC's though I don't think it's going too well. I do know I want to try one letter a week to see how we'll that goes. Maybe I need to spend more time on one letter? Let me know what you guys think? I've got the perfect alphabet book set to to get things flowing, disney board books! They're 26, one for each letter. I'm excited to see how far me and little guy will get with this new thing.

Hopefully Scotty naps for a good while. So ill be back, I'm going to go work on the blanky.

Good Morning!

Oh yes it's been a very good morning so far. I've been so tired and sleep deprived to remember to do anything so yep that's why I've been away. Lets go into further detail and explain why I've been sleep deprived... Scotty has been going through this phase for a few weeks now and he skips naps and refuses to go to bed at night till the late hours. And I've tried everything to get him back into the swing of things and it just doesn't seem to work.

Of course I know it would take him a little bit to get used to the new house but good lord! How long does a kiddo need? Well anyways my mom says the reason Scotty has been acting out ( refusing naps and bedtime, refusing to eat, throwing tantrums and random outbursts of crying) is the cause of two things, terrible twos and the fact he knows I'm pregnant. She says he's got it in his mind that someone is going to take his place.

I don't know about anyone else, but can a child this young (18 months) know something like that? I mean that sounds so bizarre to me that a toddler would have that intuition this early. Or maybe I'm underestimating my toddler? I really don't know any more. All I know is I've been super sleepy and Scott's been a whirlwind of energy that I just can't keep up with lol.

Another thing that's been going through my mind is, what kind of books or articles are out there about second time moms? I can't seem to shake the feeling Scotty is going to be extremely jealous of cub#2 even if he's involved with everything. I'm not even sure if the what to expect when..books will even help reassure me at this point lol. Maybe I need to bust out one of the chicken soup mommy edition books out that lovely Lenore gave me?

Who knows? I'm just a hot mess in my mind lol. But back to Scotty's issue with the new 'tude he's got going on....he will get mad at his Legos and scream at them. He's mean to the cat and surprisingly she keeps coming back to love on him. I've cut down tv time and switched it to quiet time with Disney books. I've tried it all and finally today well last night actually, he decided to sleep all night for the first time in forever lol. I was so happy! Also one thing I've been trying to get Scott to stop Doug is "breaking" his board books. You know the tiny ones for babies and toddler? Yea those, for some reason he will use them for tethers and winds up taking them apart.

I don't want him to have a bunch of chewed up books but what can I do? Those little books are very educational for him. (He got the ABC's of Disney books where each letter has it's own book) I just can't get him to stop tearing them up and taking them away just makes it worse. What do you other mommas suggest I do?

Ok I've come to the conclusion that the people who write the parenting books clearly don't have kids of their own. I know this comes off a little harsh but I've read article after article on what to expect while expecting the second child, and by god they act like staying calm and relaxed is the easiest damn thing in the world.

It's not. And yea I know I'm gonna get that saying "it's never going to be easy as a parent" stuff and honestly it's not! I can't get Scott to take a nap to save my life and it's driving me nuts! I am so tired. No I'm not staying up late. He wants to skip naptime and fight bedtime and I'm ready to rip my hair out and scream why won't you go to bed?!?! But that would so not be the right thing to do so I just stay up and deal with it. And it would be nice if John would help out once in a while. Yes I know he works but when he gets home from work it's not like he can't watch Scott for ten minutes so I can get a shower in.

This weekend probably won't be better because he's wanting to get the house in order an he's going to want me to do quite a bit of work and all I'm wanting is just a simple nap. I'm not asking for much. I find it hard to keep calm about everything when he can go to work and then decide to go hang out with his pals when he clearly knows I'm at home with Scott and tired as can be.

Yes I know I sound a bit controlling but also I'm jealous that his friends still want to hang out with him and my friends have completely dropped me off their friend list. Ugh. I don't think I have any friend that's a mom that gets what I'm saying but yea. Sorry for the rant I'm just uuber uuber tired.

Oh, Ive Miserably Failed!

Yes dear followers I've failed my attempt in blogging everyday. A lot of it being from stress and lack of sleep. Seriously guys, no matter how early I go to bed I still end up waking up at 5:30 every morning laying in bed hoping for a miracle ill fall back asleep. Which sleep never comes sadly. I guess my body is preparing me super early for cub #2.

Which honestly it doesn't bug me too much because I'm used to getting up early any way. Scotty has been getting up around seven or eight lately rather than one or nine thirty like he usually does. Now I wouldn't be so grouchy if I could sleep without back pain, lost feelings in my legs, and hubby to stop pushing me out of bed. I know he doesn't understand that I have severe hot flashes but geeez! Back of the the Eskimo covers! (He like to cover us up to our necks ugh)

So honestly I've been at home cleaning my but off because the nesting stage came early. Like really early, a week after I found out. And the one thing about the new house I can't stand is I can't get rid of this yeast smell! It drives me nuts! I have scrubbed, mopped, sprayed just about everything to get rid of it and nothing helps. It'll go away for a few hours and then in the dead of night like something awful, the smell will wake me up. Hunny can't really smell it so its just my supper sniffer can.

Well another thing I've been doing got the past few days is looking for organizing ideas for the kids rooms. I'm so excited to redo the kids rooms once Savannah get her stored items out of the house. Seriously I already have a plan for cub #2 room. Depending on boy or girl the color will have to wait, but still doesn't stop me from getting furniture and Pre organizing. I have so much planed! And since I'm only 7 weeks, I have plenty of time to do it, yay!

So pretty much my big projects deal with the closets. I plan on adding another shelf and rod to maximize clothes space. Since they are huge why not add extra rods for hanging clothes? I've gotten to the point where I can't stand not being able to find clothes in drawers. So my new thing has been "all clothes hung except socks and undies!" Now I know with babies you can't hang their diapers (unless cloth, which I'm debating on) but you can hang anything of there's with sleeves and it's awesome on drawer space.

My number one thing I was bad about my first go with Scotty, was never having enough socks. I hate baby socks because they go to Narnia while in the dryer. But if I have plenty of drawer space ill be able to locate bibs, socks, mittens, hats, and possibly booties. So I'm hung ho for the closet project. Hopefully I stick to the plan lol. Which I'm determined to now that I'm in the new house.

Well I know I talked a lot but hey I'm excited! Ill see you guys soon!!!

New House, No Internet, No Happy Mommy.

Well I'm not not happy, I'm happy we got into the new house, happy we found out about baby number 2 and happy that I'm out of the other house. So hopefully all from now I'm happy happy lol! Me and Scotty are watching you story 3 right now and honestly I'm surprised he's actually watching the movie instead of running all over the house. Which he loves! Yay!!!

So as of right now the only flaws about the house is I'm waiting for the water to be cut on. Also were on that stupid Pre pay electricity which is a bummer because I can't use anything too much. Yes I know I'm bad when it comes to lights.

Aside from all the bummer stuff about the house, I'm excited to say ill be 7 weeks Sunday. And I know I went over board but I'm already looking at room decor since we have two spare rooms. Which I never thought I would be using it for a nursery. Go figure? Well I've found one for a boy that I like and then I found one for a girl that I literally have my heart set on. But all I'm waiting on is finding out the gender in a few months.

And anybody who knows me probably knows how much I love my animal prints. And I'm not just a zebra freak, I love all the cute prints that are out there. Lol. For a boy I liked finding nemo but I realized that that one has turtles on it and Scotty is my turtle. I want new baby to have its own theme lol. At first I wanted to go with penguins but that would've been really hard.

So well just wait till the time comes. Till then here are some pictures!
