Well I have been a bit busy lately but wanted to catch up a bit. Not to much really going around here. We are doing weekend volleyball games with Nicole and gymnastic competitions on Wednesdays with Melody. Lil Jimmy is starting to cry to be picked up and that is so funny. I set him down he cries I pick him up he stops. Funny! I am trying to do more at home mom things like cook. I really don't like to cook much and have not had to because I worked and was gone alot. I prefer to pay for food. So now that I have lost my income, I have to cook more to save the family money. I like to bake cookies does that count? My kids would say yes but I think Jim would like a bit more real food. I have been using the crock pot more and that is nice.
Anyway, yesterday I got so mad at the kids I could have ran away! Nicole and Jon were going at it and I was on the phone. I don't get to talk to my few friends that much so I was just trying to get them to shut up for a few so I could finish my conversation. (my girlfriend is due today with her baby!) so by the time I get of the phone ( like 5 minutes) Jon had thrown a pb&j sandwich at Nicole and missed and it was stuck to the wall! He sprayed her with a juice box too. She was pulling his hair and punching him. I just lost it. He got spanked and both are grounded. He is almost 11 and I don't think I should have to spank anymore but I called him upstairs to talk to me after I had cooled a bit and he was smiling like it was so funny! That's why I spanked him. He looked at me like I was crazy but maybe he will now know I mean NO MORE THROWING THINGS!
This morning I went to sit at the computer and there on my chair was HUGE spider! I hate spiders and just freak out at the sight of them. I am here alone so not sure what to do I get a jar and get him into the jar with a magazine. I then place the jar with the magazine on top on the table in the dining room. I turn around to go get cookies out of the oven and I hear the jar fall! The spider is on the move. I did get him again and now he is one the carpet with the jar over him where he will wait til Jon gets home from school to save me. He will think it is so funny that he has to save his mommy from the big, bad spider. It really is a very large spider and again I hate them.
I started to pack up the baby clothes that Lil Jimmy can't wear anymore and started to think "Do I want another baby" "Should I keep these just in case" I told Jim I was thinking maybe we should have one more so Lil Jimmy has someone to grow up with and he was like "Do it now then so we can get the baby stuff out of the way" I think, today anyway, that I will just stick with Lil Jimmy. Then I cangive him all the attention he needs and it will be like he is an only child. Only 4 years and I will have kids in college(hopefully)
This weeked is my mothers Bday party and I love doing things for her as she is always doing for others.Iam going to get her a sonicare toothbrush as hers broke and she loves it. I hope it goes well I am sure it will.
Oh almost forgot. I came up with my million dollar idea! I am searching patents to see if it has been thought of but I think I am the first. That is a very hard thing to do as there are millions of them. I think I will need to talk to a patent attorney. I am so excited! I think it is a really good idea that can really make some money. Here' to hoping...

This weekend was very busy. We had Corine's 12th birthday party. She had some of her friends and our family. It was nice to see everyone. The baby was so tired from all the excitement. He got held so much. Corine got guitar hero and the adults played that for a bit and that was fun. The house is a wreck but thats ok. I guess I have something to do today now that everyone has gone to work/school. I think Corine had a nice birthday. She went shopping with my mom yesterday and spent some of her money. She has such a hard time with parties it is hard to tell if she had a good time but I think she did.

On another note, I have mastitis again. I had to go to urgent care/after hours late Friday night to get some more antibiotics. I am so bummed this is happening. I asked the doc how to prevent it and he said quiting breastfeeding is the only way. I don't want to yet so I will see how it goes after I am done with the meds this time. I love being so close to my baby and he is more than likely my last baby and I want to do all I can for him. When I was at the doc office I was able to weigh the baby and hes so big! He weighs 13 lbs 6.7 oz! He is 9 weeks old. I love watching him get bigger. He is soooo cute! When we were at doc office on Friday, Jim was holding the baby and the baby went pop and it leaked all over Jim's shirt! It was so funny. The look on Jim's face was priceless! We had to change him and clean him up on the exam table. Funny stuff.

Nicole had her Volleyball games yesterday and she won 3 out of 4 games. They all looked so cute. This was her first game and she was a bit stiff on the court but she will get better. I can't wait to she what she does in the future. She has just been really growing as a person and I like who she is so much. Even though she was a brat during Corine's birthday party. They all have those days.

One more thing, Jon got his Cello and it is smaller then I thought it would be. He looks so cute playing it. I can't wait for a concert. He is short and watching him play this huge instrument is funny. He is so excited to be playing. I hope he does well and sticks with it. The learning of new instruments is so hard, for those of us that have to listen to the practice!

Wow this weekend was very relaxing! Nicole and Jon went to thier dad's for the weekend. Tyler was working and then out riding with friends all weekend. Melody went riding with Ty and was at the fair. Corine went to her Grandmas house and spent the night. Jim and the baby was who I spent most of the weekend with. We went shopping and out to eat. We even got in a nap tpgether. The house is never that quiet. I guess with them all getting older, they will have more and more things to do on their own. Today is Corines 12th Bday. I am going to make her a chocolate cake per her reguest. We do a small celabration with just us ( that live in the house ) on the Bday and then a party on the weekend. So we always have cake twice for each Bday. It's a good thing I don't like cake! Anyeay, I must do a little catch up around the house as didn't do much but relax this weekend so off to the laundry room, YUCK!

Well the last few days have been good. I mean not much going on but good. We had dinner together at the Thai place that I love. Thats husband baby and myself so that was nice. The baby slept the whole time. I finally got the sleepy wrap and I LOVE IT! It is so great. I can just pop him in it and run all around the house. He likes it too! I will only have 3 or 4 kids all weekend and that will make for a pretty quiet house. I might just talk hubby into Thai again! Well just had a minute to check in. More later

I am patiently waiting the sleepy wrap and it is going to be longer than I thought. The company is here in colorado but ships from NY? Oh well its on the way. I also tried to buy a nursing cover from ebay and the stupid thing is giving me an error message. I will try again later. Baby is taking a much needed nap so I am off to a much needed shower. And maybe some lunch? I miss Jim when he is at work. Soon.

More hands please

I was just trying to cook some dinner, something that I have neglected to do for quite some time and realized that I need more hands! I just don't know how to juggle a newborn while cooking, cleaning and anything else that might reqire more than one hand or more than 3 minutes. I can't wait for the sleepy wrap. I hope it works! I can see myself wearing a baby while doing all my chores. He is currently laying in his crib (for the third time) and not really liking it. I wish he would nap in it but perhaps when he is a bit older. I took some new pics of the baby today and they are so cute. I will add them later. We thats all for now as dinner is almost done! Now I have gotten eating down to a one handed job!
So we didn't do much this weekend. Was pretty lazy. We went to Jimmy's moms house for a bbq and that was fun. The boys played in the pool. MIL held lil jimmy and that always makes me nervous. She was holding him over her head and jiggling him around. I was happy that he started to fuss and she gave him back to Jimmy. He is so cute with the baby, and the baby is so happy to be in his arms. Speaking of a fussing baby, mine is so more later. BTW I did order the sleepy wrap and it should be here tomorrow or Thursday.
