Life's Lessons

1. The early bird (bird being momma) does not get just the worm.
2. They get the bags under their eyes also.
3. They get to stay up late and take care of their early riser.
4. Just because you've told your husband 2477458589234 times to please clean up after himself, he won't do it.
5. If you say you'll help with your teenage sister's baby shower you'll end up helping alright.
6. You'll end up planning it, making and mailing out invites, shopping for it and making almost all the food.
7.if you decide to take a break from party planning the people that are 'helping you' will feel like they're doing all the work.
8. If you tell said p'helpers yo back off, you'll be called rude, hurtful, among many other things.
9. At 5 months your sweet little princess will be a stinker to nurse, feeling like she's missing out on everything.
10. This causes nursing to stretch out for quite a while.
11. If baby is sleeping through the night (still) and is moved into her own room your yorkie will decide that he needs to be up all hours of the night.
12. If you sit down to blog your husband will come in, take the computer causing you to blog from your phone.
13. This results in your post being full of errors.

Things I love Thursday!


 I'm so excited to continue doing Things I love Thursday with Diana

This week, I'm loving.....

This cute little pink bath chair! 

This past week I've been going crazy with cleaning and getting all the stuff ready for my sister's baby shower this weekend. I've been tired and very sore when it comes to bath time. Usually Abigail and I just take a shower together, and sometimes we just soak in the tub for a few minutes, but the last couple days I've been ready to just fall over and sleep, so this chair is coming in handy. We just put in it the sink, sometimes I even put a bar stool up to the counter and put her in and it makes bath time nice, quick and comfortable. 

Even better it was only like $7 at Wal-Mart. I love Wal-Mart. Hubs and I like to bargain shop, well he likes it when I bargain shop, he could really care less though. We've been able to get some really good deals on some things that we could go expensive with, like this bath chair! I registered for a tub and now I'm glad I don't have it. It would be huge. This is small and hides in my sink most the time. So that is what I love this Thursday! Can't wait to see what everyone else loves!

I've never done this before. Diana is opening my blogging world up. I always see her doing it. So today I'm linking up with Shell. Diana talked about needing friends that are always there and it put whatever I was going to blog about somewhere that I've forgotten. It made me go, ya know what?! I have family that does the same darn thing!
So it's no surprise that my hubs family and I don't get along. I had a huge long post written about all the horrific stuff they done to me. The lies, everything. And decided it's not really that, it's the comments. The one "I don't think we can be close because I'm pregnant and you're not", the "You think that having a baby will fix problems in your marriage, it won't." These are the comments that make me want to puke. Make me honestly, want to effing punch someone.

I needed friends when we weren't getting pregnant, and most of our problems revolved around our infertility problems, yes I'll admit it, I let it hurt our marriage. I was so alone though. I felt and still even feel out of place when it comes to blogging, even though I tried to blog to get something. I felt and still feel like I fit in somewhere when I read blogs. I feel like I'm let in on your lives as a friend. I don't have anyone that I can really truly call a friend, outside of family. The friends I started out with from childhood all live in California and I moved to Utah at 16, and only did 1 year of highschool before I graduated. I don't have anyone I can just call up and be like Hey, come over. Hey let's go out. Hey, I'm having a break down. All I've wanted are friends, even if they are from my in-laws. People I could depend on, and all these people have done is criticize and say hurtful things about me. So what if I don't like my husband telling you how much he makes. He makes enough money to pay our mortgage and all the other stuff, so I can be a SAHM. That's all you need to know. Some months we do great, others not so great. You don't need a number. So what if I don't tell you we're trying to get pregnant, or when we plan on having a second one, because I'm scared that it won't happen anytime soon, though we'll probably start next year. So what if I don't tell you guys every detail of everything, or want people in the delivery room. My husband is my secret holder, the one who has seen me at both my best and my worst, I don't need the extra questions the extra worry if you aren't going to ask me questions, call me, or tell me your secrets. It's not a one way street.

I could go on and on about all their drama and such, and I have. I'm working on it though. All I know is, they all live withing 5-10 mins from me, (only one is about 10) the other 3 are very close, and I see them ummm, maybe 5 or 6 times a year. They've been to my house maybe 10 times, and we've lived here for a little over 2 years. No one just calls to do stuff. Heck they can call to see if I want to go grocery shopping with them or call to see if I can talk to them while they clean. My mom, my sisters, brothers and I do that all the time. I just try and try and they say it's me, so I change and still nothing.

I know this post is all over the place. I just can't seem to pour this out enough. My heart just hurts. I have a feeling I'll most definitely be pouring my heart out more often.

A & Her Daddy.

Saturday morning we woke up to Miss A upside down. She had pushed off me to get closer to her dad. While he was in the bathroom she decided she needed to play with his pillows.
 She had her little feet pressed up against the headboard.
 Just playing away with her daddy's pillow.
 I FINALLY got her to look at me so I could get a picture of her cute little face.
 All she wanted though, was her daddy.

 And when he finally dove in for a kiss, she turned and gave me her I got what I wanted smile, before quickly moving back to paying attention to her daddy.
It's so cute. She's starting to really enjoy being with her daddy. I want to say Friday and Saturday night she even let him put her in sleep, she didn't even need to nurse! He just held her and out she went.

So like I posted here Aslept in her crib for the very first time and it went amazingly!
Gold Star for A & I, me for not freaking out.

 Well last night was her second night, down at 9:30, well in her crib at 9:30 she was asleep probably 45 mins before that, she was put in her crib at 9:30 and up at 4:30. Well I'm having a dilemma.

 If A sleeps in her room then I haven't yet been able to sleep more than a few hours, because I'm afraid I'll miss something. BUT if she sleeps in our bed I wake up in more pain than I usually do because I don't have much space to move around in. She needs to sleep in her bed eventually, I know this and I'm sure sooner is better than later. I'm so torn! 

I need sleep, this mom doesn't function too well without sleep. Its possible but the day seems to drag. I'm not sure what to do!
