Our friends Rob and Jessi had their baby this weekend. Basically when they get pregnant, we start thinking about having another/trying. So Sariah and Ryan are 7 months apart and Seth and our new baby will be 6 months I think. We are so excited that Seth is here now! He is super cute and cuddly! We hope that he can pass all his newborn/premmie tests and come home tonight!

with her binkie and blankie. But she went down for a late nap today
because we were out. When she woke up, I could tell she wasn't really
ready to be up. So I grabbed a blankie and took the rare moment to
snuggle with her on the couch. She fell back asleep and let me have a
moment with my baby again.

Simplier Life. It struck me enough that I wanted to put it here to
One of the ways we can bring balance to our lives is to watch for the
moments worth savoring and then stop whatever we're doing in order to

different parks all around the area. Usually I'm too lazy to go. I
have things to do or it just easier to stay home and relax with
Sariah. Especially when I'm feeling sick. Plus Sariah is still not
walking so in my mind there isn't that much she can do at the park.
But yesterday I was feeling decent and decided that I should make the
effort to go. It was really fun. And I thought Sariah was going to
take up permanent residence in this swing.

I've never actually watched a girl one all the way through so I think it will be interesting. For the most part the show is just fun people watching for me. I think it is facinating- with the knowledge that they hype things up and make it exciting-- it is a reality show not actually reality.
James just sits and laughs that I like it so much and get so into it. I know it is an addiction. And isn't the first step admitting it!?? hehehe

I am reading a book my other sister gave me called A Women's Guide to a Simpler Life. It is all about refocusing on what our heart cherishes and what brings us joy and learning to say no to the things that don't. Anyways, I realized that my relationship with my dad is just one of those things. I will drop everything to do lunch with him- if possible. He just uplifts me and makes me better.

mental block point. I'm just not sure how much longer I can handle
being sick. I'm not throwing up like I did with Sariah but I still
spend a majority of my day on the couch. Keeping horizontal is one of
the few things that helps.
It isn't just physically wearing but mentally breaks me down. I can't
do anything! I am barely keeping up with work and the house and many
days fail at both. I want to do things with Sariah- go places and
things but I can't. It is even hard to shower on a regular basis-
gross I know!
So I'm 13 weeks (and a few days). Just hopeful that I won't be sick
the whole time. At about 14 weeks I starting improving with Sariah and
at 16 was pretty normal. So I am just praying that will hold true
again. I just want to get back to life- or enjoying it really.
Even this is being written on my phone from my couch. I was feeling
too sick to eat at the table. :(

expect to be sick but some days are worse than others.
This was one of those days. I just needed to lay down until dinner.
And well James' idea of cooking is frozen pizza or toasted bagels. He
just really doesn't like to cook not that he isn't capable. But being
a good husband agreed to make what I wanted (sweddish meatballs and
rice) as long as I would tell him how to do it from the couch.
So he got the rice started. Then went to opening the can of cream of
mushroom soup. Which has one of those pull back tops.....
I heard a yell...
And then James stumbles into the living room...
watch Noah for a few hours. But it was great. We all ate lunch
together and then both babies took naps- at the same time! Crazy
cool. Once they got up we played and they insisted on watching some

It is sooo messy! I just took what for me was the easy route and fed
her by hand when it was something involving a spoon. Well she's
getting older and I'm realizing she should probably be more self
sufficient. So yesterday I wasn't feeling great at dinner and decided
I would just hand her yogurt and a spoon and see what happens. Sorry I
forgot to take pictures of the event. But I think a fourth made it
into her tummy. But once you start this kind of independence then she
expects it all the time. So this mornings cereal would not be accepted
by my hand. She of course had to do it herself. What have I started?
I know it is a good thing, but oh the mess!
