The one downside of being a “sahm” is I have no motivation to shower. None. I have been going like 3 days without showering (only if I don’t leave the house on Day 3… grosssss!). Isn’t that disgusting?!
Amelia was so fussy today. She must be going through a growth spurt or something (NO! STOP!) as this morning she’d eat an ounce or two and then want to eat again an hour later. She’d take a quick nap and then want to be held. She did that most of the morning and then wanted to be held all afternoon, fighting sleep. Made for a very unproductive day.
I took a few pictures of H and A today. Well, mainly Amelia but I got this darling one of the two of them. Hudson just adores her. Its so cute to watch him with her, however there are so many times I have to tell him to stop messing with her when she is sleeping or trying to eat.
Hudson had some money to spend from his birthday as well as a $10 gift certificate from Toy House (how awesome are they to send a $10 gift certif for kids’ b-days?!). We went to Toy House on Tuesday for him to spend his money. He chose an Automoblox (he’s sooo into these right now!) and a red Dodge Viper, a red quad and a red Hot Wheels car. Doesn’t he look so happy with his purchases?
The other night I was up feeding Amelia and went to the bathroom. I glanced into Porter’s room and saw this heart-bursting sight. Soooooo precious! Camping out on the floor with his big ol’ dog.
I signed up for Weight Watchers yesterday. Its time. I still have 40lbs to lose (SICK SICK SICK) and just need to buckle down and get to business. 3 weeks from this Saturday we will be going on vacation and sadly I’ll have nothing to wear. I feel so disgusting… I don’t feel “cute” or “stylish” anymore… I live in sweats and t-shirts (not even cute t-shirts). None of my normal shirts fit. I hate this limbo stage, though I can’t blame anyone but myself for gaining the weight. I started A’s pregnancy 12lbs heavier than normal so in order to be at the same weight gain as the boys’ pregnancies I should have only gained 28lbs. I gained 52. So… I’m down 24lbs since delivering but still need to lose 40 (adding in that additional 12). GAH. Why can’t I press a button and it would just disappear?
Have you seen the cute wooden Disney Cars that Toys R Us has? Hudson has Sally, Mater and McQueen, as well as Mater’s Tow Yard. These wooden cars work with the wooden train tracks (Thomas, Brio etc) and are so cute! Hudson got a package in the mail yesterday and it was a birthday present from Aunt Lori, Uncle Don and the girls. It was the wooden Mack for his set. He was SO excited!
Our mornings have been a little rough since Amelia. I’m exhausted and its all I can do to drag myself out of bed to take Porter up to school. Yes, I’m crazy and pack up all 3 kids to drop Porter off at school but the bus ride is an hour (as opposed to driving 2 miles down the road to drop him off) and I hate for him to have two long bus rides in a day. Luckily, Porter is SO helpful in the morning. This morning he all but drove himself to school HAHA! He had dressed himself (in jeans, a polo tucked in and a TIE… hilarious!), packed his own lunch, and had his shoes on and ready to go. I love that kid.
