Some Honesty..

So I'm going to pour my heart out a little today.. I feel like ugh.. A bad blogger, a bad wife. Just all around kinda crappy this pregnancy.  I'm absolutely exhausted every day. I get like no sleep because I'm sooo uncomfortable at night. It takes everything in me to clean the house and honestly it's usually a bit half assed.

I have a hard time going to the store (especially if I have to take Lyla) because I got hot and dizzy and just don't feel right, like I'm going to pass out. The dr thinks I have a blood flow issue, which could be right because my hands and legs and feet fall asleep really easily. Oh and I have carpal tunnel.. Yeah, thats fun!

It's not all bad though! I love feeling him wiggling, kicking and punching. He's quite an active boy. I've gotten his room pretty much all cleared out and I'm just waiting for hubby to paint so I can start bringing the baby stuff from my parents house and getting his room set up. I've decided to do his room in blue and brown and decorate it in the racing theme. I've been able to find some cute stuff on etsy that I'd like to use on his wall.

That's enough whining for today I think! TGIF! Hope everyone has a good weekend!

Summertime Bucket List!

I've seen a few of these and thought it would be fun to do and share with y'all what I want to do this summer!!

1. Fish! I love fishing..
2. Take Lyla on a picnic.
3. Go to the zoo a few times. (Went once already)
4. Go to the races.
5. Hopefully watch my husband race.
6. Go on a family vacation.
7. Have a water balloon fight.
8. Take maternity pictures.
9. Play in the ocean.
10. Get the baby's room done.
11. Go to the big Portland Farmers Market.
12. Smores.
13. Have a bbq with friends.

I really probably could've gone on forever!! But then it probably wouldn't have gotten done! haha..  I'm pretty excited about this summer because Lyla is a little older and we can do more. So if anyone else does this type of post leave me a comment so I can come check it out!

Ideas! Help! (and an update)

So I decided to plan a little potluck bbq for my hubby's birthday/Fathers Day and I'm sure people will bring the usuals, ie: potato salad, fruit, beans etc. I want to make something new and different but easy because I also have to make his cake and make sure the house is clean. So people! Ideas pleeeaaase!!

Update on the progress of the baby's room.. It's pretty much all cleaned out except the stupid weight machine! I neeeed someone to buy it! I decided that instead of moving my craft/sewing stuff in to the garage I moved it into the closet in that room for now. When he's able to open those doors and get into stuff we'll have to rethink the situation. Adam shampooed the carpet last night but I'm sure we'll need to do it a couple more times to get the cat smell out. Adam will be out of town next week but I'm hoping the week after we can start painting.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!!

Baby Must Haves

With this baby (since I know more about babies this time haha) there are some things that I feel like we need to have.

Washable nursing pads.. The disposables are a pain! They never soaked up much and who wants to hear my boobs crinkle all day?
Swaddle blankets! I do not want another bad sleeper so I'm going to try everything I can to not.
I never really had to take Lyla's temp as a baby but you never know when you'll need to and this looks pretty easy!
A pack n play!! My circumstances were different when I had Lyla and I never needed one. This will come in handy A LOT!

So these are just a few of the things. I may make this a bi-weekly post. If anyone has anything on their "must have" list please let me know! I want to make having a baby and an almost 4 year old and easy (as possible) thing.

Wordless Wednesday

Ahhh!!! I promised the gender reveal a few weeks ago! I'm so sorry. I had some super cute ideas for pictures for it but the weather wasn't very nice lately and when it was I wasn't feeling good. So sorry!

It's a BOY!!!!

We're all so excited and Adam's cousin who is due 4 days after me is also having a boy which is pretty neat.
