9 weeks

Here are my first belly pictures.  This would be the only time I would show off skin like this!


Morning Sickness

Chloe tried to take care of me while I was feeling down.  I don’t know what she will do when she is not the baby any more.  I really don’t worry because she always loves my sisters kids.  I think Chloe will love having a baby around to snuggle with!

Here is some of the pictures Blake snapped of Chloe trying her hardest to share the couch with me.

She has never really adjusted to the fact that she has been kicked out of our bed.  We even have to leave the dogs in the living room at night or we would be up all night trying to get them to stay off the bed.  They think they can sneek in after we fall asleep.  So now they always want on our laps on the furniture.  I really don’t even want them on the furiture but it was hard to say no while I was sick.

She is the best snuggle bug!

Really I think there is a selfish motive behind some of her snuggling.  She cracks me up, she falls asleep as soon as she gets comfortable.  She can sleep in any position too.

I guess Blake had some morning sickness too!

Just a few things

Sorry I have been a little absent.  As I was feeling bad I really didn’t have anything to say, or felt like being near the computer.  I have been feeling much better lately.  Food is starting to taste better, I have even started liking chocolate again!  Yesterday after church we went to Johnny Carino’s and I enjoyed a yummy connoli for dessert!  We shopped a bit and just enjoyed the time out.  I was so tired after all of it, but it was fun. 

Today we finally closed out on the car we were selling (the bank has drug their feet for a month on this).  We sold our Explorer.  We decided to down grade to have a smaller payment.  The car didn’t go far though, Blake’s mom bought it.  She has never had a vehicle of her own and being short she hates the big long car they have.  The Explorer will be great for her since it has a back up sensor and the peddles can come to you rather than having to sit so close to the wheel.  I will miss it but we will replace it with something similar in size (sniff sniff).

We are finally working on the house again.  Blake has been hanging the trim.  It looks so good!  I will post pictures later today.  We are trying to finish the shower too.  We will be so glad when that is finished.  We really only have a few pieces left but we were a little stumped on how to finish it around the door.     

I have some cleaning to do so I guess I better keep it short.  As long as I am feeling better I will be here.

In the Dark

I talked to sister earlier today and she informed me that they lost power from Ike.  They live in the Dayton, Ohio area.  They had 75mph winds and lost lots of trees in the neighborhood as well as power.  They have been without since Sunday afternoon.  They also are without water because they have a well.  My grandma and aunt and uncle live in the same area so they are without power too.  Luckily my family has lots of other family within a couple miles that do have power.  They say it may be the end of the week before they get any power back.

My sister and her husband have 3 little kids and they of course think it is all fun and games.  They tried to tell the kids that they had to use the water in the pipes very sparingly so they couldn’t wash their hands, brush their teeth, or flush the toilet.  Then my brother-in-law laughed and said “Just keep doing things they way you already do.”  They are young kids that are trying to make good habits; this might throw them off course for awhile. 

At least they are able to laugh at the situation for now, I am sure their patience will wear as the week goes on.  Luckily the weather is cooling so they can stay cool too.  They didn’t get any damage to their house and neither did anyone else I know.  What a blessing!
