Life happens

wow i cant believe its been 4wks since i blogged. so much has happened.

october 4th~ phillip's birthday, didnt really do a whole lot, went to my cousins daughters 5th bday party, had cake and ice cream at his moms house and he opened all of his presents from his mom and his dad, he got a lot of clothes which he needed. he said he had a really great day.

October 6th~ phillip started his new job, back in construction in richmond, ca. he really likes it and the boss really likes him. and its possible that he is getting paid prevailing wages (AKA MORE MONEY)because it is at a school. all the rest of the guys are getting paid prevailing wages, but we dont know about him because he is an apprentice. i guess we will find out on his first pay check.

October 10th~ my birthday, got to sleep in, which is rare, then spent the day in stockton with my mom, my sister and chloe. my sister gave me the sleeping beauty dvd for my birthday and mom took me to get my hair cut and styled. i looked bitchen. then mom took us out to lunch, it was an all over great day.

October 11th~ ha ha ha got really cute family pics done, it was my bday present from hubby and my mother-in-law, and got some super super cute ones of chloe in a tutu and her in her dalmation halloween costume. i guess ill have to post them here later.

i disappeared...then re-appeared

so i dont have the internet right now, so it makes it a little hard to blog. nothing really new going on, my little girl thrills me and makes me smile every day with the new things she is learning and figuring out. she is so stinking smart. went to costco today with my mother in law, which rocked bc she bought my hubby a HUGE thing of ribs. he is such a rib freak. i love costco and i cant wait to get my card renewed again. hubby carried baby around the entire time so that he could show her off, and he walked around eating samples the whole time. it was funny.

back and SICKER than ever?

so the trip to oregon was, um... intresting?! and ill leave it at that. chloe ended up really sick, and then of course i need to take care of her so in turn i got whatever it is that she has. so now we are home and both sick, and of course hubby is taking care of both of us. it really sucks trying to feed a 4month old that screams in hunger, and drinks a couple mouthfuls of formula then screams, but if you take the bottle out she still screams. he nose is so plugged up that she is having a hard time eating. she is going from bad diarea to bad constapation, so much so that she screams in pain while she tries to poop. luckily she goes to the pediatrition on wednesday for her shots, so i can ask about meds for her, and maybe starting rice cereal in her bottles since she is up to between 32-42oz of formula a day. oh the joys of being mommy! i wouldnt trade it for the world.

goin on vacation

to visit aunt kathy and all the family up in oregon! going to be fun, but going to miss hubby. sis, mom, chloe and i are going (girls road trip/vacation). its normally an 8-10hr car ride, but with mom needing to get out and stretch her legs every so often, and having an alomost 4month old that will need to be changed and held every so often (i wouldnt want to be stuck sitting like that for 10hrs straight if i were her), it will be more like a 12hr car ride. We are leaving at 8am on the 27th and will be there for 4days. it is going to be the first time that all my family up there will be meeting my baby girl. they are planning something for all the family while we are up there. now i have 1 1/2wks to plan what all im bringing for chloe and to get us all packed and ready to leave (sounds silly for just 4 days i know). but if i dont make a list i WILL forget something, and with a 4month old that could possibly be tragic.

a trip down memory lane...

i was uploading pics off of my old digital camera and i came across a pic of my on my last day of work when i was 7months pregnant. so here it is....

what do you think of a 8-10hr car ride...

with an almost 4month old baby? i got invited to go on a mini vacation to oregon to visit some aunts and uncles with mom, sis, bil, and chloekins. the problem being that we would all be in a little honda civic and dh wont be going. now i know its just 4days but it would kinda suck because we would be gone on her 4month "birthday". i would like to go to see family on one hand, and we have been talking about goting to visit there but i wanted to go and see family and visit WITH hubby, not go with everyone else and leave him home. i know it makes hubby sad for me to go without him, but he wont tell me. im so torn right now i just want to cry, this is one of those times that i wish we were rich so we could jusst rent a van and all go! sigh, such is life.

What a fun evening!

today was so much fun. We (phillip and i) took tyler and alex (nephews) to lunch with us, we met my mom there and had a great lunch, of course we had chloe with us too. After lunch all of us went to moms house and phillip and alex did some yard work while tyler and my mom shared the baby and we visited. After a while we had to take the boys home for callie's (niece, the boys step sis) birthday party, was fun, got some cute pics. the boys were very excited because when the party was over we took them back to my moms house and we taught them a new card game, and played cards over there until 11:30pm. and now they get to stay the night with us. All in All it has been a great night. i had a blast and im glad we got to play cards. plus now the boys want to go back over there with us to play again another day. and my mom said that she will pay alex $5 to mow the yard every other week, so thats an extra $10/month for him and he loves yard work!

on a good note my sister in law had her baby! on 8/5/08 at 1:59pm Jaylynn Lauren entered the world, weighing in at 6lbs7oz and was 18.25in long, she is just a little bit. with a full head of DARK hair. she is a spitting image of her daddy.

Phillip and i had it out last night

last night hubby and i had our first real fight, and boy was it a bad one. he never backs me up with it comes to DD and i finally had it. My MIL gave my freaking 2month old a bite of ice cream!!!! are you freaking kidding me. every time i say anything to him about dd he tells me "she's fine!" ugh it gets so frustrating, and i have been holding it in for so long that i couldn't take it anymore and i blew up! he told me that he never realized that he didn't back me up so much. And i felt so bad about the whole fight and that i blew up, but we ended up talking it out, we both apologized and he actually cried (but shhhh don't tell him that i said that!)


thats how old my beautiful little baby is! can you believe it?!? i cant, where has time gone? she will be 3months old one week from today! anyway here are some pics of her from today....
this one is actually from 2days ago!

my baby girl

Saturday, July 19, 2008

its saturday night

and im sitting her with my loving husband, doing pretty much nothing. We did go see my mom today and the nurses said that chloe is the cutest baby that they have seen. LOL its funny how many people tell me that she is beautiful. i think she is beautiful but im probably a little bias for objectivly say. grandma helman crocheted chloe a beautiful blanket, and gave it to us yesterday. Phillips grandma is not doing so good, she asked phillips little sister who she was 3 times. anyway just a quick update and heres a really cute pic of chloe.....

When it rains it pours

well mom is still in the hospital, since wed 16th, and they cleared her heart, said it looks fine. Now tomorrow she sees the neurologist, and they want to run all kinds of tests and things like that. today after visiting with my mom we came home and found out that phillip's grandma is getting worse! she has been in and out of the hospital a lot recently but is home now, and she is just not doing good. She asked phillips little sister who she was 3 times while they were visiting, and did the same thing to 2 of her sons. i personally think she is showing signs of Alzheimer's. Its going to be very hard on phillip's grandpa if she passes away. If you are out there reading this and can muster up a spare prayer we could really use it.

just another day in the ER

so mom is once again in the hospital. and if you know me you know that its really nothing new. Her falling is getting pogressivly worse and her memory is bad. Today she couldnt even remember if she took her medicine today, and had no idea what time or day of the week it was. they found some damage to her heart in a test, so tomorrow they are going to run tests on her heart and lungs. maybe they will be able to tell us what is wrong with her. so tomorrow huby, baby and i are going to spend some time with my sister and maybe swim a littlw. then off to the hospital to visit with mom. poor hubby, his days off are going to be spent at the hospital this week.

My First post

well its 3:47am and i sit here on the computer as Phillip sleeps and i stare at my beautiful baby sleeping in her bed. I have to wonder where has my baby gone?! My beautiful little red headed baby is 11wks old already. She is almost 3 months old. I feel like i just had her yesterday and already she is holding her head up, babbling on and on, and rolling to her side. She loves her daddy and i fall more and more in love with him everyday. watching them together makes my heart melt and I'm so glad that he is mine. I cant help but wonder what her first word is going to be (hopefully mommy!!) and what her little voice will sound like when she starts to talk. but for now I'm just going to enjoy my baby while she is still little. i truly must be the luckiest woman alive!
