January?? Really???

Can you believe this GORGEOUS weather we have had lately?? The girls and I have gone on a few walks to get out of the house and enjoy it!

As we were walking, and the girls were running, I kept thinking: "It's January 20th? Really????" It feels like late April or early May.

Just a couple blocks from our house is a nice little park. There aren't a lot of playground toys, but there were enough to keep them entertained for awhile!

This is what Stella did....the whole time. What a cutie! She is 4 weeks old today!

I am NOT a winter person whatsoever. I love the sun and hot weather, so having this little taste of spring is GREAT! Today it was 48 degrees again and so sunny!

This weather is such a big change from last year.....
This was a huge snow fall Spokane got on December 18, 2009.

I am sooooo glad this isn't the situation this year!!! I HATE driving in the snow, so I would probably be stuck at home all day. YUCK.

P.S. Go here and check out her giveaway this week!!! So cute!!!

Not a lot to say

This is where Stella loves to be....just hanging out with her daddy!!


Livia....putting on some geek glasses. No matter what she wears, she still looks cute!

This is how she rolls

Yep. This is how Stella enjoyed her first hockey game. Sleeping. Through the whole thing. Oh well, I had a blast showing her off to my hockey peeps. She was a hit!

She also spent most of the night cuddled up to Daddy in our front carrier thingy. She liked it! Which is good, because we have tickets for the Jan. 30th game as well.

On another note, my mom left yesterday. That means I am all alone this week with 3 kids. HOLY CRAP.

While the parents are here...

...go on a date!

That's our plan for tonight! We are going to this:

and taking this.....

I always thought "Why did they bring their baby to a loud hockey game?? GEEEZZZ!"
But I get it. She sleeps through all the loudness at home, why wouldn't she sleep through mommy and daddy screaming "Go Chiefs Go!" "Kill him Beach!" or " I love you Drayson Bowman!" (wait...he doesn't play for them anymore....) loudly??

Just in case you are wondering about the last statement, Dr. Dray is my fav player.
Blast from the past!

I want to win this

So go here and maybe you can win it too!

Wouldn't I look great in that Tutu?? Okay, I would probably get it for Gracie....maybe. I think.

Happy Thursday!

This is what happens......

.....when you don't get your child dressed for the day. They dress themselves.

In your sweatshirt.

What I miss/don't miss

What I love about NOT being pregnant:

*No heartburn--HALLELUJAH!
*No more pelvic pain
*No baby bum in my ribs
*No sudden kicks in my ribs that make me go "OUCH"
*My legs aren't so swollen--even if the cankles will never go away
*I can get out of the bath tub with no help
*Don't have to worry about my water breaking at Target anymore

What I miss about being pregnant (I can't believe I just said that)

*Not having to suck in my tummy (MISS THIS THE MOST)
*If some article of clothing doesn't fit, you blame your growing tummy and go buy a new shirt/pants!
*Eating....because the baby wants it
*Having people pick up things I drop because I can't bend over enough to reach it
*Not having to breastfeed....I am not one of those mom's who love it, but I am doing it

Happy New Year everyone!

My resolution---Lose this baby weight. It was sad to try on my 'fat jeans' and not be able to button them.
I think I will try this Special K challenge I have been seeing on TV. Maybe.
I think I will still blame Stella, since she can't defend herself.

While I am talking a little about Stella, she has been very Jaundice. At her check up on Monday, her doctor sent us to the lab to have her billirubin levels checked. Turns out they were super high, 20.9, and they started light therapy on her. We are home now with a machine that has a belt that wraps around her middle and constantly shines light on her. They are slowly going down, and yesterday she was at an 18.3. We haven't gotten her results back from today's blood work ( a nurse comes every morning to check on her and take her blood) , but the doctor told us that we can stop the light treatment when she is under 16. So pray that she is under 16 today!
Okay, I am going to go back to watching the Winter Classic--go Flyers!

Gosh I miss hockey.
