Words Can Hurt...

It may not be the "R" word, but using the term "special ed" as a replacement isn't any better.

Co-op Crazy

Ever since I've found co-ops, I've been going crazy buying stuff for Ada.  I told Brian that giving me a girl is going to be the worst thing for his bank account.

Here's what I'm waiting on:
  • Headbands
  • Leg warmers
  • Leggings (for Brady too because they had boy ones and they are great for cloth diapered bums)
  • Cloth nursing pads (I guess these aren't for Ada)
  • Diaper pail liners and wet bags
  • Crochet shoes
  • Cloth Wipes
Now, I'm trying hard to resist the skirted leggings that will be showing up soon on one of my co-ops.  They're only $5 each, but the sizing doesn't start until 12 months.  I already have tons of hand me down girl clothes, so I don't need even more stuff in advance.  Since I get all of these things at wholesale prices, I'm saving tons of money at least.  In fact, those leggings showed up on zulily for $10 a piece and I'm getting them for $2 a piece!

This reminds me that I really need to get busy on my to-do list soon!  Especially making hairbow holders for Kalista and Ada!

January is Getting Close!

I just realized this week that I'm 29 weeks (technically today).  This means I'll be considered full-term in 8 weeks.  I just realized I can't assume she will stay in there for 40+ weeks like Brady.  Plus, there are holidays, so it's more like 6 weeks to prepare!  Eek!

Panic Mode Activated!

Then Brady was really sick for the past two days.  He's just now finally keeping food down.  Not much has been done in the past days except massive amounts of laundry because I have no clue how to keep a 1.5 year old from throwing up on everything, especially when he gives no warning that it's going to happen.  The first time was actually in his sleep and he didn't make a sound or even wake up long enough to cry after.  I checked on him before we went to bed 2 hours after we put him down and he had rolled around in it.  Yuck!

I'm sure I still have plenty of time, but 6 weeks doesn't seem like enough time to prep.  Plus, I really need to get busy on some craft projects.  Brady's scrapbook is only up to 4 months and I have all the supplies to make a hairbow board for Kalista.  I want to make another one for Ada when I'm done.  I'm going to be busy, busy, busy!

Another Zoo Trip!

We went to the zoo with our neighbors/friends and their family.  Brady and Kooper had so much fun!

Watching the tiger!  He kept coming right in front of the window and they would scream and run!

Brady checking out the elephants with daddy!

I took the three hour glucose test on Friday, so I should find out sometime today if I passed or not.  I'm really hoping I passed and I can enjoy all the good foods this holiday season!
