No more smokey treats for me.

I haven't smoked in a very long time. IN fact, the last time I was around a smoker it was too much for me and I had to get away.

I have a friend that only smokes alec bradley! Not only are they hard to find locally but they are suppose to be some of the finest cigars on the market.

I wonder if the trend pass out cigars after the birth of a baby is still around or if it's changed to gum?!

Almost 17 weeks...

I've been feeling some little kicks here and there! At first I thought they were gas bubbles...but then it feels like the baby is completely rolling. I feel it every few days and it's nice.

I'm still listening to the baby every morning and every night to make sure that she's in there.

Still thinking it might be a girl!

The car.

I must say that we're pretty disappointed in our Toyota Matrix. We purchased a Toyota because we thought it'd last forever.

TO say the least...the house is falling apart!!

We were told that one of the corrugated metal hose parts needed to be replaced. Then there's the tires, the plastic tire guards, and the clanking that we hear in the back of the car.

The last thing in the world we want is a new car payment! However, we're going to have to put some money into this car in order to keep it on the road.

A day of rest...

This morning we went to a kid's birthday party and we came home. I thought I was going to try and rest but I couldn't get comfortable. My hips were achy and when I did go down Emmy kicked me.

So, we decided not to go to the music event at the park tonight.

We're hanging out tonight and folding laundry!

Eating disorders.

When I was in college I roomed with my best friend from high school, Jenny. We had a great time. Our sophomore year I noticed Jenny was losing weight. I admitted to her I was gay and she admitted to me she was anorexic.

I didn't realize how serious it was until she went into the hospital and weighed 75 pounds. We went to Houston to visit her and she looked awful and so frail.

She didn't return that semester and I moved to New York. We kept in touch via email for a year or so then lost touch.

A few years ago I talked with a mutual friend who told me that Jenny passed away. I really couldn't believe it.

I wish she would have been able to beat anorexia and go to an eating disorders treatment centers.

I think about Jenny often.


I try to watch this show at least once a week because it doesn't make me feel so bad about the lousy housekeeping job I've been doing! I have one more month of work and I can't wait to go back to doing little things around the house like CLEANING and LAUNDRY.

For the past year of me working things have been quite neglected. It will be nice to have a good 4 months to get things together before the baby comes.

Bad phone.

Margot's phone is absolutely WORTHLESS. It's such a shame because she treats hers like gold. In the next month we're going to upgrade her and hope that the new phone has better luck!

I've heard that new htc incredible s.

Just last night we were over at M and L's and the dog knocked his phone into the dog water bowl. To say the's dead. They went out today and picked up a new phone. I hope they got something good and didn't have to pay an arm and a leg!

The pool.

This year we purchased a pool pass. For some reason I just don't like going. I feel overly boyant and it makes me a little nauseaus. I feel like I can't swim on my belly cause with the boobs and the belly I float right up! It's weird.

Margot has been taking the girls to the pool regularly and it's been nice to have time to do laundry, clean up, and pick up toys!


If I had my act together I would be shopping for Christmas gifts right now! Knowing that our December is going to be a little hectic with the possible arrival of a baby!

I've started looking online for gits and I saw the best personalized gifts for dad.

If you truly are organized about it you can get some great deals right now and not have to worry about fighting the crowds at the Christmas rush!

16 weeks!

And I'm feeling really good. Pending the 2 ice cream sandwiches, guacamole, chips, and cheeseballs I just ate!?!

I've felt some movement and it's been nice. I can't wait to actually see the baby move. That is my favorite part of being pregnant.

We have another ultrasound in a few weeks and I can't wait to see how big the baby is.

We had a great time in North Carolina. Too good of a time. We ate way too much! Margot gained serious weight and so did I. However, I can blame mine on pregnancy!

At one point she might even want to think about the safest diet pills that work! With life being so hectic and us loving food the way we do...we've got to figure out something!

Obviously, what we're doing isn't working!

15 weeks!

Wow...this is going super fast. I can't believe it. Before I know it I'm going to be 37 weeks waiting for this little one to get out!

We had a good midwife appointment last week. The next one is in 2 weeks. We'll get an ultrasound in Syracuse the day before.

I'm excited to see how big she is!
