crazy ninja

So how many times can a 2 year old throw herself on the floor? In my house 15.  By 11 a.m. ranging from crying because I gave her a napkin not a paper towel, I helped her put something back when she asked me to, I moved her baby out of the way so she wouldn't fall...I really hate the terrible twos.  C has gone crazy, and some foreign being took over her body.  I wonder if this is what she will be like when she is a teenager...
I took a shower this morning (like less than a minute) and found C in the nursery having a picnic in her diaper.  She used her stool and took off her clothes and put a hair clip in.  IN LESS THAN A MINUTE.  She is a crazy ninja. When will I ever shower again once this baby girl comes? Probably never. I rarely shower now anyhow, so its probably fine.

Mom's are the best

Thank goodness for my mom.  This week has been rainy, 50s and we have been stuck inside.  Today I thought I really might throw C out the window after tantrum number 10, by 11 a.m.  Thankfully my Mom offered to take little miss grumpy pants on a walk for a half hour so that I could just bask in the peace and quiet of no toddler throwing herself on the floor for the bajillionth time because I put the bow in her hair that she asked for.  
I really don't know what I would do without my Mom sometimes, she always comes through even if she is super busy with other things.  When we move, I will probably call her a million times a day because I am just so used to her being around when I need to vent, talk, or just give me a break from my crazy toddler.  I know this is just a phase, but Miss. C has been driving me crazy lately, she is probably just as sick of being inside as I am, but for real girlfriend calm your SH*T :) 
Thank you Mom, for EVERYTHING.

whole world

 This little girl is my whole world.  Other then the hubs of course :) She knows she is too, I probably spoil her with attention a littttle too much sometimes...but honestly she is the sweetest, and I want to hang out with her as much as I can one on one before her baby sister shows up. It is such a beautiful day today we went to a park and the hubs took some pics of us, in case you didn't notice I LOVE pictures, and taking pictures.

 Happy Easter!! We had our neighborhood egg hunt this morning, so many kids.  They were each allowed to get 10 eggs, and this is the first year that C actually understood what was going on so it was really fun to watch.

I love Wednesdays

Crazy med school came over today (or Aunt Lisbef as C calls her) and it was really great to see her, we went shopping, and then played in the yard, and with stickers.  I got this eye brow shaper/pencil thing at Ulta today and it changed my life.  My eye brows have always driven me crazy because I always feel like they just are crazy and not shaped well, and I am cheap so I don't like getting them waxed, so this pencil is a game changer.  I also got the Naked Pallette 3, and I am obsessed with it! I don't really wear too much eye make up ever, but when I do I really like making it look classy so I think that it will really help! 
Today is also the hubs 27th birthday!! Happy birthday to the best guy I know, I don't know what I would do without you in my life, and I am so glad you were born.  We went out to dinner at the hubs favorite steak house and we are STUFFED.  I got him tickets to a Tigers game next week, so we are pretty excited to have another date night so close together.  We never go out just by ourselves, the last time we got a meal together just us was my birthday and before that? Probably like last it is rare and SO nice to have us time.  One of my besties (C calls her Doctor Nina) came and watched C for us, which was so nice, too bad C was a little crazy person and cried like the whole time I felt so bad. She is awful and so hard to calm down when she gets worked up. (Thank you SO MUCH and I am so sorry for my crazy toddler doctor Nina :) )

Nursery tour

 The nursery is pretty much done, it just needs a few more pictures and some stuffed animals and then it will be complete.  I know I am nesting hard core, but whatever it makes me have less anxiety for when baby girl is born.  I love how her room turned out, and we only bought the dresser (99$) , and bookshelf (35$) from IKEA, and then a basket, and a few frames for 20$ total.  All of the other things we already had, which worked out great since it is another girl.
I am 22 weeks prego and I think I officially popped, and no longer feel like people think its a beer belly.  This time around is pretty much the exact same as when I was with C, it is nice to know what to expect.  I am trying to stay as active as possible, which is pretty easy running around after C all day long.  I have the worst pregnancy brain, I literally forget everything unless I write it down on my calendar or set an alarm for it.  I forgot it was Monday when I woke up yesterday...its probably fine.  I crave pizza, carrots, frozen lemonade, fresh fruit, milk, diet coke, fries, and mac and cheese.  I also get heartburn like WOAH, she better have tons of hair is all I am saying.  I am so excited for her to get here, but at the same time so nervous that I won't have enough time still for C.  I know it will all work out but two kids will probably turn me into a hermit for awhile!

one long week.

 This week was rough. Temper tantrum toddler, anxiety, and my dog passing away made for a really hard week for me.  Ever since I got pregnant with this baby girl my anxiety has been through the roof.  I have no idea what triggers it, I just all of a sudden can't breath and feel like I can't even leave my house.  Which makes things hard because of C and my school schedule making it so that I have to leave the house.  I am slowly working through it and have some things I can do that help me, but it seriously has thrown me for a loop! The day my dog died was so sad.  I couldn't even look at one of her toys without bursting out crying.  She was a part of our family, and I am so thankful that we got so long with her.  I held her head in my arms as she passed away, and that gave me a lot of closure but still it was just so final and sad.  I know she is in a better place and not in pain any more but it is just so quiet without her around.  This weekend was much needed, the hubs and I decided a long walk was just what we needed to start to heal from this challenging week! It was not a very beautiful day, but at least it was warm, we got our energy out and saw a ton of dogs.  
We are slowly getting the nursery together, and I am just so excited as we get each piece put together.  I can't even wait for baby girl to get here and I know I have a lot longer to go, but I am just so excited!

Cody Banks

 We got some bad news today about my dog Cody, she has bone cancer and was given 3 months to live. We will probably have to put her to sleep in 4-6 weeks though with how fast it is progressing.  I broke down and cried this morning when I found out.  Cody has been with us since I was 13 years old.  She has lived an awesome life, and is my partner in crime, I was so happy that Charlotte got so much time with her and we will really miss her happy presence in our house.  She has been the best dog ever, and I will always remember her.
