Very First Sick Visit...

....and it was DEFINITELY a sick visit! In a little over 2.5 years, we have been so blessed that we have not had to make any sick visits to the dr., but I knew this day would eventually come & last night Fritter woke up with a nasty sounding cough & fever, so I knew we needed to go in. I'm so glad we did, because it turns out that she was positive for strain A Flu & has a little bit of the croup. We've gotten lots of good medicine for her, so hopefully they will kick in soon! Say a little prayer for me too, that I don't get it being pregnant...I have some TamiFlu called in, but I would rather not have to get it or take it...

We got the LSU room at the Dr.'s office & she thought that was neat to see the Tigers! :-)
Sick girl trying to give a happy smile! :-)

 Feeling bad & ready to see "the lady" AKA the doctor :-)
Poor thing after her appt. was too sleepy to eat her french fry! So sad!

So hopefully she will bounce back soon & be her spunky self again, because I don't handle my baby girl being sick very well. Plus, the risk of me getting sick makes me more reserved, so any of your prayers would be appreciated for a speedy recovery!

Have a great weekend!

14 Weeks!

We had a good Thursday around here. We just stayed in & cleaned house & finished laundry because Fritter's Poppy, Linda & Grandmomma (her great grandmother) came over for dinner. We had a great visit & ate some yummy Minestrone soup, salad & breadsticks! :-) In baby news, I'm officially into the 2nd trimester & things are definitely growing & I'm blooming! LOL



Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along: 14 Weeks (I'm now in the 2nd trimester! Yay!) I have officially "popped" out also! LOL
Size of baby: Baby is about the size of a lemon (3.5 in)
Total Weight Gain/Loss: +3 lbs

Maternity Clothes: I'm still wearing everything regular, just wearing my Belly Band around some jeans that are starting to get a little snug! :-)

Gender: Don't know yet, but I can't wait to find out! It will probably early March or so.
Movement: Not yet, but I am really looking forward to it! :-)
Sleep: Not that great this week actually, I have tossed & turned many nights & wake up so sleepy...Hopefully I'll get a full night soon!

What I miss: Caffeine, although I do a little splurge now & then.. :-)
Cravings: This week it's been breakfast food! LOL Bacon, eggs, & biscuits!

Symptoms: Other than being tired from time to time, not many.
Best Moment this week: Making my own maternity skirt from an old pair of jeans I had. Very fun project & I'll have to show it on here soon! :-)


Have a great Thursday!

Fritter's Faces


This morning while Fritter was coloring, she yelled, "I draw Mommy, Daddy, & me!" I ran over to look & got so tickled! I just love our serious expressions & our eyebrows! I may have a little Picasso on my hands! :-)

Have a great Monday!

13 Weeks

Well, another week has flown by! I'm entering into my last week of the first trimester & I'm excited to enter the "honeymoon" trimester! :-) We came out to my parents tonight to visit & eat dinner, so my mom snap my weekly picture of me!

Pregnancy Highlights:

How Far Along: 13 Weeks (last week of the 1st trimester! Yay!)

Size of baby: Baby is about the size of a peach (2.9 in)

Total Weight Gain/Loss:  Gained 1 lb. :-)
Maternity Clothes: I'm still wearing everything regular, just wearing my Belly Band around some jeans that are starting to get a little snug! :-)
Gender: Don't know yet, but I can't wait to find out! Only 6-7 more weeks!

Movement: Not yet, but I am really looking forward to it! :-)

Sleep: I'm sleeping really good & having lots of crazy dreams! LOL I should start a blog about them! Think about the most random things all put together in a storyline & that would be my dreams! LOL

What I miss: Nothing really yet, but I'm sure I'll be missing my waistline soon! HA!

Cravings: Anything salty & crunchy! I really had a craving for McDonald's Sunday after church (horrible I know), but it was soooo good! I'm craving a Blizzard now, so I may have to fulfill that one soon! This could be bad! LOL
Symptoms: Occasional tiredness & a few headaches, but I've actually felt really good this past week!
Best Moment this week:  That McDonald's Double cheeseburger! LOL (j/k)
I would say finding out that so many people I know are expecting too! I mean I know at least a dozen or so people that are pregnant right now & it's so fun! I just found out my high school best friend is pregnant only about 7 weeks behind me with her first & I'm so excited for her! There must be something in the water! :-)

I need a new blog design.....


So it looks like the little boxes with red X's mean that all of my blog images are gone! :-( The girl that designed my blog over a year ago no longer does designing & after emailing her a trillion times, commenting on her FB page & basically stalking her, I realize that none of it will probably be recovered! :-(

Soooo....I guess it's time for a change!

Can anyone recommend a good blog designer? I have done a little browsing, but was curious to have anyone else's input. I love a good recommendation! :-) Let me know if you know of anyone or if you are one! :-)

I'm ready to get things looking right again, so hopefully I will have a fun change soon!

New Year, New Baby!

Wow! I think I can hear the crickets chirping, I've been so quiet on here lately! Well the reason for that is because for the last 2 months I have had no energy & the feeling of nausea every waking moment! That's because.....We're having another baby!! :-) 

What a perfect way to start another year! My due date is July 28 during the heat of the summer! LOL I am 12 weeks today & starting to feel lots better and getting my energy (& my appetite) back! I'm so thankful! I've already been to 2 doctor appointments at 7 weeks & last Thursday at 11 weeks & everything is looking wonderful! There is nothing sweeter than hearing that sweet & strong heartbeat that I have been longing to hear for so long! I have been doing nothing, but thanking the Lord for his sweet faithfulness & provision for me & my little family!

I'm wanting to try to take a picture of myself each week and post it to show my progession through my pregnancy to keep as a little scrapbook! I wasn't blogging when I was pregnant with Fritter, so I figure this would be fun to do this time around! I love the way Kelly at Kelly's Korner does her's, so I'm basically going to steal copy her format. LOL :-)



Pregnancy Highlights:

How Far Along: 12 Weeks
Size of baby: Baby is about the size of a lime
Total Weight Gain/Loss: Actually lost 4lbs since my first doctor visit, but with all the nausea & then stomach bug last week I think that's why! I've been so hungry this week that I'm sure it's back! :-)
Maternity Clothes: I'm still wearing everything regular, just wearing my Belly Band around some jeans that are starting to get a little snug! :-) Everyone was right when they say the 2nd one pops out earlier! LOL
Gender: Don't know yet, but I can't wait to find out! Only 7-8 more weeks!
Movement: Not yet, but I am really looking forward to it! :-)
Sleep: I'm sleeping really good & having lots of crazy dreams! LOL
What I miss: Nothing really yet, but I'm sure I'll be missing my waistline soon! HA! 
Cravings: Anything salty & crunchy! I want nothing but chips & snack mixes! LOL This past week I had a big desire for Poppyseed Chicken, so I made myself up a dish & then really wanted a King Cake so I went and got one to take to a gathering just so I could have some! :-)
Symptoms: I had nausea pretty much 24/7 for about a month & half & being super tired, but thankfully I'm getting more energy back!
Best Moment this week: Seeing the ultrasound of my sweet baby moving around & hearing a strong heartbeat of 171 bpm

I'm excited about this coming year & I look forward to blogging all about it! :-)

P.S. I'm not sure if it's my computer not, but are things on my blog (my header, side titles, etc.) coming up as boxes with red X in them? If so, tell me & I need to ask the girl that did my blog design about it....Looks like a new year may need a new blog design too! :-)
