This and that

What a fun and busy weekend we've had. Yesterday was our little cousin Liam's birthday party. He is turning 2 and his mom did a Thomas the Train theme. It was so cute! Later in the day, I went over to help Sally decorate the most adorable monkey cupcakes for my sweet nephews party. After church today was Noah's party. His party was all green, brown and yellow monkey stuff and it was so cute and fun. I can't believe that his 1st year has already gone by!

So, this morning I had nursery duty and let me tell you....I can hardly handle any child's snot these days that is not from my own precious Judah. Don't get me wrong, I love those kids in our nursery, they are all so special but, each time I wiped a nose this morning, I just about threw up. The nauseous feeling and crazy hormones have definitely kicked in. I feel bad for my husband, I think I am already much more moody this time around. Hopefully I'll learn how to somewhat control my mood swings sometime soon!

When I talked with my midwife last, she said that I shouldn't do heavy aerobics or intense working out right now. So, that means that I haven't been able to do my running or go to Zumba. I feel really bad about not being able to do the half marathon with Sally. I know that she understands but, I still feel bad about it. I was really looking forward to it and I knew that when we crossed that finish line, it would be the most amazing feeling of accomplishment.
My midwife did say that I can do walking and weigh lifting though so, I plan on continuing to workout.

Since we've had such a busy and on-the-go weekend, I plan on staying home all day tomorrow, cleaning and getting caught up on stuff. I'm looking forward to getting some stuff done and just having a good day at home.

Well, this post has just been a bunch of nothing. I better start thinking about heading to bed. Good night!


  1. I know it must be a huge disappointment not to get to do the half marathon, especially since you were well underway training. But it's for a most amazing reason!!

    The second pregnancy was tougher for me because I had the other one needing attention still. So I couldn't just nap whenever I was tired or when I was feeling sick. If you need help, don't be afraid to ask. The kids would LOVE to have J come over and play and let you get a break!

  2. I agree! Pregnancy is so much tougher when you have another little one. I remember sitting outside with my little ones counting down the minutes until naptime when I just fell over in the grass and fell asleep! Hopefully you figure out how to deal with the nausea....and are kids supposed to be in the nursery when they have runny noses?? I know what you mean though about other children's snot.

    Feeling for you:( Hope this first trimester passes quickly:)


Thank you for your comments. I read every single one of them and they always make me smile.
