An Award, An Award!!

I must say when I first started this blog I mainly did it to keep my friends and family in the know about what was going on with Kyler and my pregnancy. I never really imagined that it would be a way for me to make some awesome friends.

I am now officially addicted to blogging.

If something exciting happens I am already thinking of how I am going to blog it.

Daddy makes fun of me, but I know he likes it too. You see, Daddy travels alot for work, so the blog is a great way for him to see his kids when he is gone.

Anyway, back to what I was saying, let's see... I have made some great friends here in Bloggeritaville/Bloggywood (ok so I like Bloggywood better because I can spell it!) and I look forward to reading your comments and your blog. I love reading about your lives and how your kids are growing and changing. I hope that you enjoy reading about mine.

Why all the mushy stuff you ask, because my dear friend, Becks, over at Pearsonality, has
blessed me with my very first bloggy friend award....

Here is proof that I am officially an old lady:

This is what my hubby got me for my 30th birthday. A day at the spa.

Apparently, the wrinkles are getting to him-so he set me up with a facial.

I'm a little to stressed- so he set me up with a massage.

My toenails and fingernails are just out of control -so he set me up with a pedi and mani.

And my hair is getting a little crazy- so he set me up with a haircut.

I secretly loved all of it. Don't tell him though:)

My Mother in Law got me a rocker, because all old ladies love rockers, right?

And my mom got me a GPS system, because everyone knows that your memory is the first thing to go and she was wanted me to be able to get back home:)

To bad this can't help me remember what I was going to do when I came into this room!

Happy Wordless Wednesday

Way To Tired

I am SOOOOO tired today. Why, you ask?

Because of this little bundle of joy:

and this little bundle of joy:

How is that I require lots of sleep, yet I have children that do not?
Ella was up 3 times last night and Kyler was up once. Kyler hopped in bed with me, Ella woke up, he looked at me and I said do you want to go back to your bed, he said yes mama, carry me please and that was the last I heard from him until around 7:30AM.

Ella, however, decided that 4:30AM was play time. This is killing me. Daddy is out of town until Wednesday so I am on my own. Daytime is fine, even the evenings aren't to bad anymore, the middle of the night thing without Daddy is what is hurting me.
Ella was doing pretty good at sleeping through the night. She would go to bed around 9PM and wake up at 5:30AM then fall back to sleep for a couple of hours. This little routine only lasted a week though. Some probably has to do with her tooth coming in, some has to do with getting hungry, (she is still only taking 4 ounces at a time-more then that and she pukes it all up) and I think some of it is just plain habit. I admit, I HATE to hear her cry, after a few minutes I break down and go in, nurse her, and put her back to bed.
So, I need some help mommy bloggers. What do I do? How do I get this little bundle of joy to sleep through the night? It MUST happen soon!!

It's a Beauty!

Guess who has her first tooth! It's Miss Ella Grace! She has been drooling like crazy since April so I knew a tooth had to be coming in some time soon. I was finally able to see it and feel it on Friday. It's just a little tooth on the bottom in the front. I can't believe my little girl is growing up so quickly. I haven't "officially" decided if she is my last baby, however, if she doesn't slow down I might have to have another one.
Who has their first tooth?

I do, I do Mommy!
