February 2013 {Monthly Update}

Gosh it has been a while since I posted! It's not because I haven't wanted to. I just have not had time between work and then housework and being a Mommy. So I think I am going to try to do a monthly update at the very least each month to kind of keep up-to-speed with what's going on around here.

I will still post about other stuff but at least for my memory I will know what we did each month.

1. We survived the week with out Michael (Daddy)! Jonah did wonderfully that whole week and did not get upset that Daddy was not home each night. We had told him that Daddy had to go away to work. He understands that Daddy has to "work" anyways so I think that helped. Also, getting to talk to Daddy on the computer each night was fun for him too. He behaved so well for me that week. And then the next week when Michael was back, he decided to test all his boundaries again. Oh well....he is 2.5. I did good too while he was gone and the week went by pretty quickly since I was so busy.

2. Valentine's Day was just Jonah and I since Michael was gone. Jonah went to a Valentine's party at the library with his story hour friends. He brought home lots of goodies and had a great time with his friends. He got a set of small construction vehicles from us and loves them.  He is really into any kind of equipment or large vehicles right now.

3. Michael went away to study to take a test for his job. He works on fire trucks. He passed his test too!!

4. Work for me has been crazy busy! Thankfully next month it will slow down a little. I am 17 weeks along as of yesterday and feeling so much better than those first few weeks. I never had morning sickness but I was so fatigued all the time and didn't feel like doing the normal things I like to do. So glad to have my energy returning.

5. We have an ultrasound scheduled for March 8th to hopefully find out the gender of baby #2!! So excited and hope this little one cooperates with us.

6. Jonah has been fighting a yucky cold this week and having a hard time breathing at night. He finally had a good night's rest last night and so did we!! Hoping he feels better by this weekend.

I have been reading some really good books lately and I want to share a post about those soon for anyone interested. I also will be posting about the gender reveal as well soon!

Hope you have a wonderful week!

Weekend Wrap-up

Hello! Well we've had a low-key weekend for the most part. Other than the part where I cried for about an hour yesterday afternoon. I am not sure if I should chalk it all up to pregnancy hormones or just that I don't handle big changes very well. Either way, that's the truth of it.

So Saturday was spent hanging out together other than my quick run to town for weekly groceries and diapers. Michael stayed home with Jonah and they got some fun one-one-one time before he had to leave.

So yes, this is the week that my hubby will be gone to Florida for work training. He made it safe and sound yesterday afternoon. We got to talk to him on the computer last night and Jonah loved that. Jonah has done really good with the adjustment and has not been asking about Daddy since he left, which was what I was afraid would happen. We had told him Saturday that Daddy had to go to work for a long time and would be back home but it would be in several night-nights and we would talk to him on the computer. I guess that prep work was all he needed. :)

Also, I just have to say that I have a deeper appreciation for all the military spouses and families and families that have to be apart for extended periods of time. It certainly makes my measly week look pretty pathetic in comparison.

Truthfully I was dreading this week but now that it's here I know we will adjust and be just fine. I am not sure why I get myself so worked up over changes. I know that God is watching over us and will meet our needs while we have to be apart.

Well since a post is not much fun without pictures...here are some really bad phone pictures of Jonah last night watching Chuggington and sucking on his heart-sucker from his Sunday School Valentines party. He has been so excited about Valentines since that little party. He loves his Valentines cards he got and keeps them all in a little bag together and loves to show them and then he will get excited at say "It's Valentines Day!!" or "Valentines Day is coming up. " LOL He has already started talking about the Easter bunny too...LOL

I also finished reading this brand new book last night. I really loved it and I've been following this author's blog for a while now. It is a wonderful book for any new mothers/mothers of toddlers/mothers of only children, etc. It had some really great, literal laugh-out-loud parts to it and some really heart-touching parts too. I cannot say I share all of her opinions on parenting and how she sees other mothers but it was an entertaining read nonetheless.

I hope everyone has a great week!!
