Isn't she adorable? And I have one more picture

This is Sophie with my little sisters, her aunties. They'll be 6 in January.

19 days until...

My dear sweet husband should be official property of the military. Praying nothing goes wrong in this final stage.

I know you might think we're crazy seeing as he'll be going to basic training while I'm pregnant and having to care for a small infant. But this is what we're doing (yes we this is a combined effort) and I will make it work.

He'll be at basic training for about 9 weeks (not sure when he's leaving) and then he'll have 7 weeks of training to become and interior electrician. Which should bring us right around the time of Nubbin's arrival. After that we will most likely be moving states (YAY!) and starting a new life. I'm excited and terrified at the same time.

Buh-Bye Christmas

oh thank god it's gone. I love Christmas don't get me wrong but seriously it gets crazy.

I think if i have to touch cookie dough before next Christmas I might cry. I think I have the sugar from sugar cookies coursing through my veins.

We now have more shit I didn't want, and we don't need. We also have a teeny-tiny apartment that can't freaking hold it all.

Sophie did get some cute toys (not from me hehehehe, sorry hunny) and she does love them which is great because she's not old enough to turn them on by herself.

Booo time travel

Turns out I'm only 6weeks 4 days. -sigh-

Well then anyway
Yes find the Nubbin...

But the good news is that Nubbin's heartrate is 135BPM so I'm very very happy.

8 week appointment tomorrow

I'm both elated and terrified. I cannot be the innocent pregnant girl. I'm going to go all dark and depressing for a second to explain why.

Last year on Oct 10 I got my first positive pregnancy test. I was so giddy and elated and nothing could go wrong. I announced my pregnancy to the whole fucking world within two days. Then I started bleeding. By the time I noticed it, it was over. I had lost my first baby. Even though I was only 5 weeks pregnant I was inconsolable for almost a week. My OB encouraged me to try again saying "Sometimes the only way to heal is to get pregnant again." Well I did exactly what she said, I got my second positive on November 30, 2009 which resulted in my darling daughter. Unfortunately I had some bleeding from a subchoreonic hemorrhage that terrified me and broke my heart for six weeks.

So even though I only had one incident of spotting (after some uhhh good love) I can't  relax, I'm constantly afraid.

So moving away from the depressing I'm beginning to think my neighbors downstairs think I beat Sophia. Uhm I don't but the ear shattering, heartbreaking screams are because her teeth are starting to come through. Sigh I don't like this stage much.

Why am I awake at 3 am?

Is my child awake, ill, and cranky? In short... no

But why on earth would a generally intelligent mother be awake at 3 am if her child is not? Uhm... because she's pregnant is my excuse.

I didn't sleep crappy until after the conception of nubbin. Also I didn't have severe heartburn and pounding headaches, now I do. Well isn't that interesting.

I think this is my payback for being blessed with a good girl. I had nausea and vomiting with Sophie but only for a short time. Vomiting always made me feel better... now I just always look sea sick.

But on a positive note I seem to not be green at 3 am... hooray... I think

Dear my precious Sophia

Mommy adores that you sleep through the night and that you're typically a sweet little girl. But for the love of all things holy a nap every once and a while will not kill you. Really! I'm not lying! Try it once and a while without mommy resorting to hiding in her room as you YELL at the monitor.
Dearest Mommy

Seriously would someone convince my precious child a nap every now and then will not kill her? I get that sleeping a lot at night doesn't lead to spectacular naps but how around two or three 30 minute naps every now and then, especially when she gets that special brand of cranky.

Also in regards to the monitor I swear she knows where it is, like how to turn her head to make me suffer the wrath of her well developed baby lungs.

7 weeks!!

Baby's now the size of a blueberry!Baby's brain -- both hemispheres! -- is growing fast, generating about one hundred new cells every minute. Arms and legs are emerging as joints start to form, and a permanent set of kidneys (baby's third!) is now in place.

Well I haven't really been actually throwing up but I'm constantly in that "Do I need to?" stage. It's really irritating, hopefully I only have like 5 or 6 more weeks of this crap left.

Also... 3rd set of kidneys... I definitely never noticed that little note while pregnant with Sophia. Uhm creepy alien child. I'm always telling my husband that these children are really alien symbiotes trying to take over... and to think he doesn't believe me.

Dear little nubbin

Your big sister never gave me headaches or dizziness. PLEASE follow her lead and stop. Mommy loves you but having a throbbing head when your sister wants to play is so not cool. Also standing up and suddenly needing to sit again, also not cool see as when sissy wants something she pretty much always wants it NOW.
Please stop,
Love momma

Sophia has little einstien hair

This is what happens when Sophie gets a bath. I cannot tame the hair! I can't wait until it gets longer and I have to us detangler... oh yes the fun.

She took some real naps today! Like one that was almost 2 hours! I was so happy and I fell asleep too, it was stinking awesome.

Sophia met Santa

We went to a Breakfast with Santa at my sisters' school. Sophia didn't seem real impressed with Santa but she did look cute. My mother still has the pictures so I can't show them off.

She's going to see another Santa so we can get better pictures I'm just not sure when.

Right now she's sitting on daddy's lap watching old episodes of SNL. Mommy is not feeling so hot.

My carpal tunnel is acting up and this morning I had almost no feeling in either of my hands, instead I had the constant pins and needles feeling. That is enough to drive you nuts.

Sophia got her Christmas pictures done!

Today we took Sophia and her aunts to get their Christmas pictures taken.

My little stinker was very cute if I do say so myself. I can't wait until we get the actually pictures back so I can show off my little princess. She was such a little ham and smiled at the camera every time they repositioned her.

Then having pictures knocked out Sophia, she then slept on the ride home like a good little girl.

4 months!!!

Little Sophia celebrated her 4 month birthday on Wednesday. I can't believe she's getting so big, like I'm having a hard time believing that 4 months have past since she was born.

Last night we had a 15 minute "conversation" she would coo and make sounds at me after I would talk to her. I think its adorable and she lights up like a Christmas tree when I respond to her sounds, like she can't believe it. She's working hard at sitting up and last night she was trying to sit up in her bathtub the entire time, like so much so I'm thinking she wont be on the infant end of it for too long any more.

Another milestone is I turned 6 weeks yesterday!

 Baby's now the size of a sweet pea!
Growing like crazy, baby is starting to sprout eyes, ears, nose, cheeks, and chin. Those little hands and feet -- still webbed like paddles -- might wiggle by week's end, the heart is beating (almost twice as fast as yours!), and blood is starting to circulate!

I've been pukey for the past couple of day and I'm afraid it's only going to get worse before it gets better. My poor Sophie has seen me throw up I think four times so far.

This weekend Sophia and her aunties are going to get Christmas pictures taken! I'm hoping they turn out well.
