i’m blaming my lack of posts on still feeling not so great. i did finally go to my dr. and get some anti-nausea medicine so that’s helped out a ton, but i still feel so tired, like all. the. time. i can’t sleep enough, and i usually take a good 2 hour nap when mia goes down each afternoon.
it’s killing me because i usually never nap. the time that mia is napping is the time that i’m able to get things done- like clean my house, or do a project, or blog…it’s just not happening anymore. like right now, i just layed mia down and i’m frantically trying to get my thoughts together and pictures ready to do this post so i can have maybe an hour to sleep. anyways, such is pregnant life right?
so here’s a little update, cuz life still goes on even when you’re feeling crummy…
first of all i’m so lucky because my hubby helps out tons! he’ll do dishes, or make dinner, or clean up, or let me sleep in til 9 while he chases after mia. he always does his best to help in any way that he can. he’s the best.
so on jan. 22nd he turned the big 3-5! wow so old! we celebrated the night before by going out to our favorite restaurant- Texas de Brazil while maryanne watched mia. then on sat morning (his birthday), i let him sleep in while the kids and i went out and got his favorite donuts, strawberry milk, opened presents and had a great morning together. next week we’ll go to the concert that i got him tickets for. then on sunday we invited the fam over for cake(s) to do some more celebrating. it was a great weekend, happy birthday love!
then we have jasmine… (hanging out with her friend josue at a youth activity).
she’s been busy with school, church activities, and hanging out with her friends. we went to her school the other day to see a presentation she did for her history class. she did a great job! she’s taking on a challenge to read the book of mormon in 30 days. she has done really great so far and has a chart that she marks off each night after she reads. she’s wearing make up, into clothes and jewelry, and making sure her hair always looks cute:) we’re so proud of what a good girl she is!
van is busy being a 7 year old. he’s doing so good in school. he just got his report card and there was nothing lower than a 95 with most of his grades at 100! we’re so proud of how well he does. he’s been reading a lot and does so well. he even takes his turn reading when we have scripture study without much help at all. he and dad had a fun time playing basketball the other day. he’s such a good boy.
mia is probably the busiest little toddler i’ve ever known! she is non stop and into everything. never stops running, laughing, climbing, splashing, jumping, smiling, clapping, eating (who knew?), and loving on us. we can’t get enough of her and wouldn’t trade her enthusiasm for the world. she’s such a joy.
ok. that’s it until my next burst of energy…
