Baby Update

I'm seriously slacking on this blog. Need to get back to it! 1) Helps me remember things and goodness knows I need all the help I can get with that 2) Its good therapy 3) I miss it

So, since I've been away this happened:

Here's the belly at 9 wks:

Mother's Day [Mommy & BIG BROTHER Brazos]:

12 wks [Hola Boobs!]:

16 wks:

19 wks:

20 wks [Bare belly - lookin kinda pale and squishy around the edges]

And on July 8th we got to see this sweet little face and found out we are having baby boy #2!! :) (This momma loves her boys!):

As I'd today I am 21 weeks and 4 days. I've gained a total of 12 lbs since I found out I was preggy - 2 of which I've gained since yesterday! [Completely blaming on the peach cobbler I made last night] Otherwise I've been doing great with my weight. And I feel great. Fatigue and acne were HORRIBLE in the beginning but seem to be back to normal (somewhat) for the past couple weeks.

We picked out a name for little man #2 - Beckett Anthony. I picked this name and no the "B" thing is not on purpose, just worked out that way.

Beckett is a wiggle worm and I'm starting to feel the bumps and kicks here and there. The best part of being pregnant :) He's most active around 2:00 in the afternoon and at 9:30 - 10:30 at night when I'm going to bed. At my 20 week ultrasound, he looked perfect and no SUA. He's measuring right on target so my due date stays November 24th. My little Thanksgiving baby.

We are going to Texas at the end of next month to have a little family vaca and hopefully I can get some maternity/family pics from our photog friend down there while we are visiting.

I'm thankful with our slim budget while Jason's in school that we already have all the little baby boy stuff we need for Becketts arrival, minus a few things here and there - ie new baby bedding (mostly because Momma wants it), diapers, supplies, new big boy bed for Brazos since Beckett will be swiping his crib/toddler bed, and lots of Baby Laundry Detergent to wash all the little clothes I have.

As Seen on Pinterest: Paper Towel Curls

I pinned this and put it under "Must Try" because seriously -- her hair looks SO CUTE and I want my hair to look like this:

And I can TOTALLY do that ya'll. So, I tried it.

Step 1: Start with wet hair. Me post workout shower [disregard the red face -- I look like my blood pressure is that of a 300 lb man in his late 40s really high after a run] with wet hair.


Step 2: Put mousse in hair, tie hair up in paper towel "curlers" rrrrreeeeaaaalllly tight. Sleep uncomfortably on back all night because said paper towel curlers are too tight. Wake up the next morning really excited -- you gonna be FABULOUS dah-ling [or so I thought].
I know I don't look excited but this is at 5:30 in the morning -- this is as excited as it gets.
Step 3: Take "curlers" out of hair and FREAK THE F OUT when you realize the curls are WWW***AAA***YYY too tight...
Ok...um...that worked a little TOO well. Maybe I need to just run my fingers through it. Yeah, I'll run my fingers …

Jason's Graduation: Part II

Dr. Allen, DC
4/5 of our marriage has been spent working towards this day. To say we are excited would be a great understatement. I can't even put into words how excited/happy/scared/proud/relieved, etc, etc, etc we are. There just are no words. Jason has worked tirelessly towards this goal. Countless hours of studying. Sacrificing time with me and the kids. And all the work he put in advertising and recruiting patients into the clinic. Personal training early mornings and late nights to help makes ends meet.  And I think of all the sacrifice we've made as a family. Living in a townhouse and then a tiny apartment. I've been the primary provider and a mostly single parent during some stages. And a constant cheerleader and standing behind pushing. We've both been pushing uphill for what seems like forever towards this goal. And we've made it. Not to discount his hard work, because he was the one who really accomplished this goal but I like to think we accomplished this …

Ramblings of a Panic Attack

I’m having a panic attack. These stupid meds are killing me. I hate them. Stick with it, stick with it, stick with it. I know it’s the meds. I just have to get through this and relax for a couple weeks. I hate this job. It’s not even that bad it’s just HORRIBLY boring. I don’t want to do this every day. I appreciate learning the process and gaining experience but it’s not what I like to do. I don’t even like accounting that much to begin with but there are aspects I like and I know it. The pay is killing me. I need money. I can’t continue to be completely broke before the first week of the month is over. Collections calls ringing all day. I’m applying to jobs like crazy. I’m trying so hard. I’m just going to keep pushing forward. Keep. Pushing. Forward. I hate that I wanted a life with Jason. That I was too blind to realize what he was. That I was ok with him even from the very beginning when I knew better. Why didn’t I want better things for myself? Seeing him makes me want to vomit.…
