Being Naked is Fun!!

Collin has now embraced this concept! We heard him Sunday morning just talking to himself in his bed. So Garner went into his room to see what he was up to. He had removed his diaper and was exploring his "area"! Garner ran in and told me to come see what our son had discovered. It was very funny! Since then, he has tried to remove it only once that I know of. I don't know what I'm going to do if he consistently takes it off...guess I'll have to keep a lot of towels handy for an accident!

I'm boring...I know!

Don't have much to say. I'm just sitting here at work, not wanting to work. I've been looking at Halloween costumes for Collin online. It's not that I don't have work to do, it's just I don't feel like doing it. I'm just tired and all I want to do is...nothing. I would really like to go to bed for a week...yup, that would be wonderful! Being pregnant this time is very different from the first. It's not that my symptoms are that different, it's that no matter how tired I am, I still go home to a very active 16 month old every night! Love him to death, but man he can wear you out!! Garner is a great help though. I didn't have to do much after cooking dinner last night. He took care of running after him all evening and his bath time. So that was nice. Anyway, I have my next Doc appointment next Wednesday afternoon. I'm anxious to see what their scale reads. According to our scale, I have not gained any weight yet. I'm trying to be careful considering I did not loose the last 11 pounds of the 35 I gained with Collin. I worked and worked and ate well, and could not for the life of me get it off. Oh well, guess I'll try again after this one. I think I'll hire Jenni's personal trainer to get me back in shape. I didn't think she had much to loose, but after begining training with him, she started to melt away. She's trying to get back into modeling. Obviously, she never was fat, but she's pretty thin now. She looks great, makes me want to slap her! :) Well, I guess I've rambled enough. Hope all is well in the world of the few people who actually read my blog. Later!

I Need Some Sleep!

Yesterday started off pretty well. We went to church and then to lunch at Hueys afterwards. I got the Chicken Philly which I usually get every time we go there. We were headed home and my stomach started to feel like someone was twisting all of my insides. It hurt REALLY bad! I spent most of the afternoon going back and forth from the bed to the restroom. Then around 3, the paid subsided and we went to my parent's house for Katie's birthday. I have no idea if it was something I ate, or the pregnancy. I did'nt and still don't feel 100%, but it's certainly not the horrible pain I had. So we got home and went to put Collin to bed and he screamed like he was terrified of something. I rarely rock him, but in this case, it was needed. So he went to sleep and all was good. We went to bed around 9:45 pm...we woke up to screaming at 12:15 am. We then proceded to stay up trying to get Collin to go to sleep until around 3:00 am when we finally just let him sleep in our bed. I had to put a pillow between and he and I so he wouldn't keep touching me and waking me up. Needless to say, I'm not all here today.

A Few Jamaica Pics

We Got A Heart Beat!

I had my second ultrasound yesterday. So I got to see pics of my 10MM baby and see the heart beat. It was 150 beats per minute, a good strong heart beat! My next ultrasound will be around 20 weeks, I'm just 7 right now, and we will find out the gender. That is, assuming baby cooperates. That's all for now!

No problem mon!! :) Our Jamaica trip was a blast! We got to do a lot of sleeping in and laying around which was wonderful! We also did some water sports, kayaking, sailing, etc. We had massages on the second day. There was food 24/7 and I didn't even gain any weight!! :) I even read a book which I have not done since High School! The service was awesome and we just all around had a great, relaxing vacation. We really missed Collin and were excited to get home to see him. Two of our bags ended up in Atlanta on the way home, but were delivered yesterday. So that was the only hold up we had the whole trip. Anyway, Jamaica is actually a very poor country. Many sections of their roads were not paved and the locals houses looked like shacks. Their were fences at each end of the beach to seperate each resort as well as keep the locals off of the property. They would gather at the fences though and yell at you to come buy some of thier products, or pot. It actually can be a dangerous country if you leave the resort alone, which we did not do. We road a Sandals bus to one of the other resorts to check it out and went to the golf course, but that was all the venturing out we did. I will post some pics of the trip when I have some time to download them.

Collin did well why were gone too. He did end up with a black eye from his Aunt Jenni though...I mean, when he was with his Aunt Jenni :)> They were in Target and he fell and hit his eye on a box. No problem with his eye, but it is scraped and bruised around it. He had a check up yesterday and so I told Jenni, when I talked to her on the phone last night, that they sent in child services to investigate and they wanted to talk to her. She believed me and it was hilarious! She was very upset when it happened...she's a great Aunt! He also spent some time at his Mimi's and had a great time there as well.

Collin now weights a whopping 22 pounds! He is still in the 90th percentile on height and the 10th percentile on weight. Tall and skinny just like his Daddy! He had to have 4 shots which he did not like at all, but seems to be doing fine. And he has lots of teeth now, including about 4 molars I think. I can't tell for sure because he won't let me look.

Garner is enjoying his job so far. He has to go through the whole rotations into each department thing again, then he will settle into Neuro. He's back into playing the drums again and might start playing with the church worship team.

Not much new is going on with me. I have an ultrasound appointment this afternoon and so I should get to hear the heartbeat. That's pretty exciting! Still having alittle nausea here and there, but nothing major.

Anyway, that's it for now!

Long Awaited...

We are finally leaving for Jamaica tomorrow morning!! We have to get up at the butt crack of dawn...3am! Our flight leaves at 6am so we have to be at the airport at 4:30am. It's well worth it though! I'll be napping on the beach tomorrow afternoon! I just hope I don't get sick on the plane. I've been getting little spells of nausea throughout the day, but nothing a little food couldn't cure. I've got an over-the-counter drug and a perscription just in case I do get really sick.
I made out a schedule for Collin yesterday. On it I included the different kinds of foods he really likes, what happens at bedtime, bath time, etc. I almost started crying. This is the longest we will have been away from him. It will be hard. As a mom, you think about all the things you know about your child by heart. You worry that he will want you and have no way to get to you. Or maybe he will get hurt and you aren't there to comfort him. I know it's a part of life and that his MiMi and Aunt Jenni will take great care of him...but they just don't know him like I do. What every cry or whimper means without even having to look at his face...anyway, we will be ok, but we will miss him tremendously!!
I'll let everyone know how our trip was sometime next week. Have a great week/weekend!

First Doctor's Visit

I went for my first prenatal check up today. My uterus is a little larger than normal, so they did an ultrasound and everything looks good. I go back in two weeks to have another ultrasound and to hear the heart beat. Looks like only one baby so far, but still a little too early to tell for sure. So pray that it remains only one because I think I would loose it if there were two in there!
