Burning Eyes and a Burning Belly

It's time for her to come. Except I don't want her to. Today was a bad one for pain. I could hardly walk and my tummy felt tight all day. Is that normal? I guess normal is relative... even for pregnancy. Does anyone want to send me their baby stuff? K thanks.

I'm tired. Why do I complain so much? I don't know.

I won't complain about the Carmel Apple Spice from Starbucks. Yum. It's cider. And it's delicious. My friend Maria got me into it after convincing me to stop drinking Frappacinos. I still love those too. Go try the cider. You will love your life.

Jackson officially throws tantrums now. It started today when he got mad at the Barbie car. He was SO mad. He bit it and threw it and hit it. He was mad because it wouldn't do what he wanted it to do. Then he got mad about something else except I can't remember. All I remember hearing is that growl from his mouth. I wonder where he gets his impatience/stubbornness from. Hmmm? I couldn't get mad. In fact, I laughed and I think that made him more mad. THEN we were out to eat with Mike and Kristi and he did the arched back, throwing his head back thing. Oh boy. I don't know if I am going to make it through these years. I really really really have a low tolerance for that type of stuff. No patience either. Wish me luck.

On the other hand, he is freaking adorable. His favorite word of the day today was 'baby'. I know it's not even fun for readers of el blog to hear about this stuff, it's more for my own journaling purposes. Still I appreciate the "awwws" and "how cute" comments I receive. Anyway, my other happy thing is when he says "I" then I(we) say "love" and he says "Deeeewwwwww" all drawn out and cute. Oh gosh. Love it.

I love craigslist. I'm going to browse now. I also love everyone.


  1. I love you! I miss you and jack jack...and I guess David haha jk! miss him too. I want to come down when baby arrives!!!

  2. Oh I love the arch back thing. That is my favorite. Not really. I promise it will get better. Madison is starting to get better about the tantrums and all. You can do it! :) I'm so excited for your baby. She will be beautiful. Just like her mama!

  3. Ya, so I love reading your blogs. And I am jealous that people comment on yours. Boo.

  4. i have like no tolerance for screaming fits and whining too...but i think that makes a good mom. you're a good mommy who loves her kid and i think you'll be ok...even if you do lose your mind! p.s. call me...i'll be losing mine, too! plus, the cuteness is probably good. i'm moving to az next year this time-ish. see you there!!!!!!!!!!!
