A small symptom has come back to haunt me from the first part of my pregnancy. Morning sickness, and I didn't miss her. It is NOWHERE as near as bad, or rough as that time though. It makes for brushing my teeth a bit more challenging! I keep thinking that I am so ready for him to be here but at the same time I am trying to enjoy having him safe inside. Watching my stomach move is the most amazing and the greatest thing on Earth.
Oh the topic of the baby (ha, like i talk about anything else?) I searched high and low for these darn paper rope baskets from World Market. I finally gave up and ordered these from Land of Nod in Orange and Light Blue for the changing table. Not exactly what I wanted but they will do!
And here is my rant on boy baby stuff. BLUE. It is all freaking blue. Finding anything orange is so damn hard and it makes this girl angry. All I want is an orange lamp that doesn't cost a pretty penny, OK! Ok, vent over.
Oh, and I am completely and utterly bummed. The fabric I found is not going to work. The part in the fabric that looked orange was actually gold. So, I am back at square one and bummed out and running out of time!
My first born baby has been going through a bit of a rough patch lately. She has been biting her feet so badly that it was waking us up in the middle of the night, and she was loosing hair on her poor little paws. We took her in to the vet and they found some yeast in between her paws, and gave her meds to fix it. It helped a tiny bit but then she developed a rash on her belly. I mean ALL over her belly. Took her to the vet again and he gave her antibiotics for it and an antihistamine/cortisone combo to give her a little bit and it sure has done wonders for her. She is a different dog, and her anxiety has even calmed down too. The vet had mentioned that if we couldn't fix the feet biting and some of her other anxiety issues, we would have to consider Prozac! It's still in the back burner of our minds, but I am praying that this med clears it all up. I do have to change her dog food to a hypoallergenic dog food (he recommended Blue Buffalo or Natures Variety) as well. She sure is lucky we love her because she is getting expensive! It's worth it to see the difference it has made in her life. She is much calmer, and happier!
Blake quit smoking this weekend. He is doing really well but the big test will come tomorrow when he goes back to work! I am hoping it sticks this time but I think that with the baby coming, it is the best incentive to quit!!!
