Day 134

Glad to see some sort of reminder that it's springtime because this weather sure isn't cooperating!!!

Day 133

I was going to say that I was glad that Blogger had worked out its problems, but now I'm confused because I see that I've lost the last two day's posts. Maybe they'll reappear- no clue!

So today, we got the little swimming pool out so Bailey could have some outdoor play time. It was quite windy though, so we didn't last too long outdoors. Bailey had a great time splashing around though and I'm hoping that it will make for a good nap today (knock on wood).

Bailey was excited that Baby Max was there too. An honest toddler works wonders for a pregnant lady's self-esteem. "Mommy, you look big in that swimsuit! It's funny!" Yeah, you're funny too Bailey. Just hilarious!

Day 132

I have to admit- I am in a picture taking funk! I used to pride myself on some actually nice looking photos, but lately- I don't know if it's my increasing size or lack of activity/motivation- I just haven't taken the kinds of pictures I want to. Maybe it also has to do with the fact that my child is SO OVER having her picture taken- she literally runs from me when she sees the camera coming. Hopefully, I will be re-energized soon!

Here's my little munchkin at her Water Day at school. She was ecstatic to wear her new swimsuit!

Day 131

My sweet friend Tina came over today with a great surprise pick-me-up. Some beautiful flowers to brighten my day. Bailey was excited too because Tina brought her little girl Emmalee and she and Bailey played for a few minutes. So thankful for sweet friends!

Day 130

This necklace has made me lose a lot of sleep over the past few nights.

It was a Christmas gift from my step-mother a few years ago and has since been my go-to everyday jewelry. Needless to say, when I couldn't find it the other day, I got worried. Over the past week, I have searched this house from top to bottom looking for it. In a last ditch effort today, I went through 3 bags of kitchen trash and lo and behold- there it was!!! It was in the very bottom of a bag, covered by empty, dripping canned goods and old meat packages. YUCK!!! So glad I found it though- maybe I'll sleep well tonight!

Day 129

So, I've put myself on some type of "Limited Activity" plan to deal with these Braxton Hicks contractions that won't settle down. Really putting off going to the doctor because I have a feeling the result will be full besrest and I don't think I'm mentally ready to hear that yet. So this is about the 3rd day I've just been taking it easy and trying to lay down (as much as the mom of an active 3 year old can)!

Today was my first full day at home with Bailey and we were really struggling with finding things to keep her occupied and me horizontal. (Thank you God for Mother's Day Out tomorrow!!!) So I decided to get out my huge tub of Barbies and Barbie clothes from when I was a little girl. Just to let you know, when I was younger, I was the Barbie QUEEN!!! So it melted my heart a little bit when Bailey's eyes lit up at the sight of her new treasures. She didn't seem to mind that my old Barbies only went to two places: the beach and big, fancy parties. And she actually seemed to like the 80s fashions with their big poofy sleeves and head to toe sparkles.

Day 128

A little Mother's Day serenade from my sweetie at dinner tonight! Thank you nice piano player man at 2Johns for letting my child have her moment in the spotlight.

And believe it or not, I did all I could with this picture in Photoshop. Really dark lighting for the iphone.
