This and That

I stayed up late last night because I wasn't feeling tired. What's wrong with me?? I know better. I was SO tired by this afternoon that I had the distinct feeling I shouldn't be driving home, but if I didn't who would?

I spent the day with Kaylyn and Brayden, it was nice. We went to coquitlam center and spent our gift cards at the Children's place. So Payton and Brayden will be sporting some new duds. You should see the hat my kid picked out, it's TOO cute. She has good taste.

I took Payton to the Health unit to get her 2 year stats. She now weighs 35lbs and is 35inches!! Which is still way over the 95%ile in weight(she has been above the 90%ile since she was a month old) and actually moved up above the 75%ile in height(she's varied between 50%-75%) I don't worry to much about it but I find it interesting and I think she will as well when she has babies of her own.

So I'm off to figure out what I'm going to wear to a wedding tomorrow and what I'm going to contribute to the potluck. Nothing like last minute decisions!!

No I'm not crazy, just pregnant...

The fatigue and cravings have been rampant the last few day. I fell asleep before 8 last night on the couch and must have been in a strange position because since I got off the couch my sciatica on left side has been acting up. :( I had some sciatica for the first time when I was pregnant with Payton. It never fully went away and I figured it was just one of those left over from pregnancy things that I would have to live with now. My midwife says that it shouldn't have been bothering me and I probably have something out of alignment and suggested going to a chiropractor before things get worse during this pregnancy. I hadn't really thought about it until last night when it flared up!! I'm only 9 weeks!! This could be a bad sign!!

So I already enlightened you the reason behind my Girl Guide cookie cravings. Let me introduce you to my other cravings of the last few days. Ravioli, yes ravioli, usually I'm not a great fan but right now it's oh so good!! And I've also discovered beefaroni(had some for breakfast..yum...), and it's very good as well. Tacos!! MMMMmmmmm......and not just any taco, a hard shelled taco wrapped up in a soft shelled taco.....mmmmm......and last but not least cream soup! I called Rod on the way home to ask him to stop and pick me up some clam chowder, which I ate for dinner!! I almost forgot....Breyers real fruit ice cream bars....they are SO yummy!!! Oh yeah, almost forgot my longest running craving, since day one I couldn't get enough milk!! I switched to skim because I was drinking so much of it. I swear I'm going to turn into a cow! When nothing else sounds appetizing milk ALWAYS sounds good!!

Anyways enough about food. I woke up feeling gross this morning so Payton and I are packing up and going to find some sunshine to play in. I hope that improves my mood!! Have a good day all!!

What a good husband I have.

No he didn't find me Girl Guide cookies but he did go looking for something to appease me(it may have been just to shut me up, either way I'm happy). What he came home with are Mint Oreo's. They are very good, and a substitute of sorts. Of course they are not Girl Guide Chocolate Mint cookies but I guess I can deal!

I had a dream....

No it was nothing profound. I find that when I'm pregnant either I dream more or maybe just remember my dreams more. I don't know why but I have frequent, vivid, very strange dreams when expecting.

Well yesterday part of my dream included girl guides selling cookies?? What's with that? And it wasn't their original cookies it was the chocolate mint ones! I woke up with a big craving! What a stupid craving!! It's not like I can just go out and get some. I looked it up on their website(I have issues I know) and found they will be selling them this year(YEAH) but not until Oct or Nov!! AAAHHHH!! That's much to far away. I found myself asking Rod yesterday if he thought anybody had froze some last year and would still have them.....he didn't think so.....

I might have to settle for some of these, If I can find them.

So anyways....Welcome to my pregnancy.

I'd like to introduce you to someone special.

Yup, you guessed it. We are expecting!! We were going to wait longer to announce it to the world but we had an Ultrasound last thursday and everything looked good(praise God!), so we have to have faith that things will continue to go well. So with that, we would like to introduce you to the littlest McLatchy!!

Sorry it's a little hard to make out, I wanted it bigger(it's hard to see the detail) and was playing with the html. I can't figure out how to get it bigger without the sidebar floating over it. Hope it's ok.

Obstructed word is Heartbeat, and lower it says FETAL HR 162 bpm.

CRL(crown rump length)= 2.09cm


I'm not sure if this is good or not

But I liked what it said so...

Sitting so cute with Dad.

Very cute

Pics of Payton and Cooper here.

Monday Monday.......

Comes all to fast. At least it comes with internet. It wasn't working again for most of yesterday, finally we got a new router(we share internet with upstairs') and all seems well!

So weekends are supposed to be restful right? I'm always just beat on Mon morn, then again by fri! hehe I guess I just can't win. One thing I did disgustingly little of this weekend was cleaning, mostly just wasn't feeling well. I will have to catch up over the week, the joy.

So, in less than a week my "baby" will be 2. AAAHHHHH!!! I can't believe the time has gone so fast. If life keeps moving at this pace I'm going to miss it altogether.

Sat we went up to Cascade falls. Payton thought it was great. I love how excited she gets about anything outside, it's all an adventure to her. As we were hiking up(she was on daddies shoulders) she kept pointing and urdging us to go faster, the girl getting the ride just couldn't move fast enough lol!! We played at the bottom some as well. but it was a little cold for her taste! She'd wade in a bit then move back out rapidly saying "owe owe owe owe owe owe owe" hehe, it was to cute. When I get ambitious later I'll post some pics.

I think it's working now.

Well internet was out for awhile again, looks like Rod has it up and running again. It feels really weird not to be able to check my email and check up on people....

Places peanut butter shouldn't go!!

This is too funny!! I could SO see my kid in this predicament!!

Monday, July 10, 2006

I'm back!!

Did you miss me? Probably didn't have time!! LOL!! We were experiencing technical difficulties this weekend and had no internet but am excited to be online again!!

At the moment I am wondering why I thought it was a good idea to let Payton feed herself yogurt after having a bath....She's got yogurt head to toe.......what FUN!!

Rod didn't get the job.....DOH!! I sure was hoping. And I know it obviously wasn't meant to be but it's still a let down. Lots of decisions to be made in the next little while, decisions decisions. I hate decisions, I'm just not a good decision maker. I think they scare me, I know I'm not a fan of the unknown so when I don't know if I'm making a good decision it drives me crazy.

Man I'm tired, can't think straight. Think maybe I'll go to bed when Payton does tonight.

Wednesday, July 05, 2006

Is it to much to ask??

When oh when will my almost 2 year old sleep through the night??????

I'm soooo tired.

Tuesday, July 04, 2006

I'm not sure what that was about..

I had to republish my blog to be able to see it, I didn't touch anything!! Weird, oh well, it semms to be back to normal again!!

The ever elusive sleep

This time my lack of sleep issue was entirely my fault, I just couldn't get my brain to stop. I had a migraine yesterday and slept 3 hours in the afternoon, then we started watching season 4 of Alias last night and a main character was killed.

I realize many of you out there have already seen the whole season and often dead people don't stay dead but please no spoilers!!!

So anyways, I'm laying in bed and start thinking about what I would do without Rod. One of my biggest fears is being widowed. So my brain keeps trucking along until I'm in tears, Rod is snoring by now so he's no comfort!! I looked up at the ceiling forever until I finally did fall asleep, then I had car and airplane accident dreams...geesh

So this morning I'm tired, and am sporting a huge headache, not to mention the housework that didn't get done this weekend to do, what a way to start the week. Is it fri yet?

For my friend.
