My Baby boy is now 2!

January 10 was my little boy's 2nd birthday. He grew up so fast. I feel like he should have only turned 1. It does not seem like I have had him in my life that long.
Well, we took him for his 2 year old pictures, which was a trip. He has the cutest personality and all the pictures we get I think are adorable but it's a lot of work to get these pictures done! There is a lot of bribing, tricking and just pure luck that we got a shot. He is terrible. He is either trying to run off the little platform or he smiles and then turns away at the last minute. It took us 2 hours to get these five pictures.




I do not know if it is just me but he looks so old in these pictures. He looks like he is 3 or 4 years old already. Look at the above picture and the picture below. The one below was his 1 year old picture. Look at the difference within one year. Last year's picture the blocks barely came up to his chest. This year the blocks are at his waist!

Well, I guess I just have to realize that he is not my baby anymore, he is my little man!

It's My 22nd Birthday!!!

Well, I am officially 22 today.

I want to review my last two birthdays and my next two. When I turned 20 I was pregnant and about to pop 4 days later. When I turned 21 I was breastfeeding still. I just turned 22 and am pregnant. When I turn 23 I will be breastfeeding again. So, when I turn 24 I can have a drink for the last 4 years worth of birthdays that I could not drink. I never drink but it would be nice to have a nice cocktail for my birthday.

I felt kind of special yesterday because I got an early birthday present from my doctor! His nurse called and informed me that my present was a bottle of antibiotics for my urinary track infection. Which taking the medicine can also cause a yeast infection. So, I might have a belated birthday present where I can get cream! I also have a cold.

But, I am happy because I get my favorite dinner, baby back ribs and a homemade oreo ice cream cake!

Thank God It's 2006!!!

I am so happy that it is a new year already. I'm not saying that 2005 was so bad, but there was just to much that happened.

January
My father had another child with his wife that caused a lot of heart ache. Also, in January I turned 21, Frema turned 25 and my baby boy turned 1. A lot of wedding planning.
February
A lot of driving around and doing things for the wedding.
March
My wedding shower.
April
My baclorette party. Then the big wedding day!
May
I want to say this was the month that my best-friend announced that she has moved her wedding date up. (Sissy sorry if I'm wrong)
June
Took a 9 hour road trip down to Arkansas to see my Grandparents.
Helping my Sissy with anything she needed for the wedding.
July
Sissy's wedding shower. Sissy baclorette party. Found out my brother's wife (at the time girlfriend) was pregnant.
August
Sissy's wedding!
September
Was kind of calm from what I remember. Just my husbands birthday.
October
Found out my husbands sister was pregnant again. Then found out I was pregnant again! My brother signed up for the Army Reserves.
November
Very sick and nauseas. Found out my cousin is pregnant with twins. A long trip to Michigan City for Thanksgiving. Our 6 year dating anniversary.
December
Very sick and nauseas still. Christmas shopping and wrapping. Frema and Luke got engaged. Then Christmas.

So, it has been a pretty eventful year and we need a new year to start with new things. Just a few things this year that are going to happen:
January: My baby boy turns two :o(
February: throwing my brother's baby shower
March: my brothers baby is due.
April: my guess Frema's wedding shower and possibly baclorette party. My cousin's baby shower.
May: Frema and Luke's wedding. My husbands sister's baby is due.
June: I have my second baby!
Then there will be 3 christenings during the summer.

I am sure there are going to be a lot more things that will happen in this new year and I am just glad it is here. Plus the sooner time goes by the sooner I will not be sick anymore and get to see my new baby :o)

Happy New Years!!!

Just Bored

I am laying in bed right now and I can not get up. I have back and stomach cramps and just have to lay in bed with my legs up till tomorrow. So, I decided that I will do a fun entry instead of me complaining. So, I figured I'd do want my dear best friend did last month.


Pick 20 random people of your friends that you know personally (i.e. have actually met in person). Type them out first BEFORE reading any of the questions, then answer the questions accordingly.

Don't cheat...it definitely ruins it!

1. Samantha
2. Frema
3. Matt
4. Dan
5. Luke
6. Ryan
7. Matthew Jr.
8. Geo
9. Donna
10.Brian
11.Rebbecca
12.Christopher
13.Amber
14.Steve
15.Jim
16.Jenn
17.Brad
18.Chris
19.Number Twelve
20.Kevin

-What would you do if you had never met #5?
Luke. Well, that would mean that Frema and him would have never met because I have known her since I was born and I meet every guy that she was with. Especially her soon to be wonderful husband.

-What do you honestly think of #10?
A royal pain in the ass. But, aren't all older brothers?

-Would/did #19 and #8 go out?
Number Twelve and Geo. I do not think that she would go out with Frema and Samantha's little brother. Plus, she is happily married with three beautiful children.

-Did you ever like #3?
I would hope so, I married him.

-If #1 died tomorrow, what is the one thing that you would need him/her to know?
That she is more of a sister to me then a cousin and my best friend.

-Would #2 and #11 make a good couple?
Frema and Rebecca. Hmmm what do you think?

-Describe #7 in three words:
cute, adorable and lovable

-Do you think #12 is hot?
He is a cutie

-Would #1 and #17 make a good couple?
Samantha and Brad. I do not think that Samantha and my brother-in-law would make a good couple. They are both married for one and they are just too different.

-What do you think of when you see # 8?
When did he get so big?!

-Do you know any of #6 family?
I know all of them!

-What's #20's favorite color?
I really do not know my nephews favorite color. I am a bad Aunt.

-On a scale of 1-10 how cute is #14?
I would have to say that Steve is about a 7 because he does look like his brother, my husband. But, my husband is a 10 :o)

-What would you do if #4 just professed his/her undying love for you?
That would worry me because that is my best friends husband.

-Who is #16 going out with?
My sister-in-law is not going out with anyone right now. I actually do not know if she has ever gone out with anyone.

-Is #9 a boy or a girl?
Girl

-Would #18 and #4 make a good couple?
Chris and Dan. What is this thing trying to do? They want Samantha & Dan and Chris & Brad to break up and go out with each other.

-Who do you think #15 would be great with from this list?
Jim. My other brother-in-law would not be great with anyone from this list. I do not know who he would be great with out of anyone I know.

-When was the last time you talked to #12?
Christmas day

-What is #3's favorite band?
My husbands favorite band is A New Found Glory

-Does #2 have any siblings?
Yeap, four of them.

-Would you ever date #6?
Ryan is beautiful but I think that would be wrong on so many levels.

-Would you ever date #15?
NO. NOPE. NEVER.

-Is #7 single?
I would hope my little baby is still single.

-What is #20's last name?
Kiser

-What is #1's middle name?
Marie

-Where does #9 live?
Chi Town

-Would you make out with #13?
I do not think that I would ever make out with my brothers wife!

-Are #5 and #6 best friends?
Luke and Ryan are probably not best friends, but they better be at least friends they are future in-laws.

-Does #7 like #20?
My baby does like his cousin.

-How did you meet #18?
This is actually kind of funny. I have never meet Number twelve but I will meet her at Frema and Lukes wedding. We're blog buddies.

-Is #12 older than you?
Nope

-Is #17 the sexist person alive?
My sister-in-law probably thinks that he is.

-Have you hooked up with more than three people on this list?
Actually no.

That was kind of fun! I hope you guys enjoy it.

X-Mas Card Pictures

This was a tough task for us to do because Matthew is a big ham in person but as soon as you pull out the camera he gets all shy and does not want to smile or stay in one place long enough to get just a serious picture of him. Well this picture above was the most serious picture we could take. I thought that this picture was good enough to send out. But, my husband was not satisfied. So, we continued on snapping pictures and trying to get a good picture. That is when we got our next picture.


This was my husbands favorite picture he said that this was our Christmas card this year. So, of course I gave in and let this be our card. But, I did get a couple copies of the first picture to send out to the Aunties who have never seen him before and to Matt's boss. I did not want people who have never seen him before think that he was crossed eyed! Hope you enjoyed my silly baby.

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!

Monday, December 19, 2005

I know that it has been a while since I blogged but I am just not in the mood to do anything. I didn't even put a Christmas tree up this year. I barely got my Christmas cards out. I still have to wrap the rest of my Christmas presents and pick up a few more. I just can't do it this year. This pregnacy is just taking everything out of me. I can not do anything for more then a few minutes without having to sit down and relax. Hopefully this will end soon because I am sick of being a bum and not being able to do anything. I feel like quitting work because it is just too much for me. I only work no more then 12 hours a week. Which is nothing. So, until I start feeling better and being able to do something for more then ten minutes without getting tired my entries are probably going to be a little spaced apart.

Some good news is that when I went to the doctors on Thursday I lost 4 1/2lbs! The baby is doing really good. The heartbeat is very strong, which is good because I was a little worried. I was afraid that the baby would have been a little stressed out because of all the puking I have been doing. Plus, I bleed a little bit last week, so I was relieved that everything was fine. Well, I am going to go and lay down for a while.
