[EDIT] Don't you all remember how rambly I am when I'm pregnant?!? For those of you who don't or weren't around me then...WATCH OUT! I ramble a bunch and say, "Uh..." or "Um..." a lot with nothing to follow. I just don't realize I do it. I think that there are a few people who read this blog that might say I ramble all the's way worse when I'm prego. SORRY! :)

So...I'm not doing so good. I've been feeling rather icky. I just keep telling myself 2 things:

A) It could be a WHOLE lot worse.
B) The absolute, positively longest that it can last is June. Worse case scenario. It would be groovy if it would only last another 4-10 weeks, but absolutely at the worst...June.

I say that only because my sis-in-law, Laura, threw up like every time she tried to eat through the whole pregnancy. Laura--was it all the way until you delivered? It seems like it to me... My sis-in-law, Michelle, was on IV fluids for the first 16 weeks because she was so sick and couldn't eat really anything and then was on anti-nausea meds the entire pregnancy that were like $140 or something like that for 3 days' worth. AWFUL! So, I could be worse.

Here's my problem...I just wanna throw up...just once a day... However, I can't. Weird, huh? Last week when I had the flu, I would have given anything to NOT throw up...this week, I'm wishing to just throw up a little. I don't know if it would be the same or not, but when I was preg with Cassie, throwing up made me feel all better.

Have I mentioned yet that I feel like this is a boy? I would be completely happy having all girls. I know girls. I know what to do with girls. Boys? Not so kind of intimidates me. Mark really wants a son, though, so I would certainly not pray or wish for all girls, because that would not be fair. Basically, we'll get what we get and if they are all healthy, I'm happy as a lark. If we have a boy...I'll learn.

We didn't make it to LIFE group tonight, which was a bummer. It's been really hard making it for some reason. Tonight, it was because Cassie took only a 15-minute nap (on the way home) today and has been a BEAR ever since. She went to bed at 7 p.m. as a result. We just knew that she was gonna be awful. Also, it is so hard because she is rambuncious (sp?) on a regular night when she has slept well and we seem to get nothing out of the study because we're fussing with her. It's just hard, you know?

In CASSIE NEWS...this girl is a TALKER! She has upped her verbal skills even higher since I've been keeping Aleigha...the 3-year-old. She says almost anything and everything now. I usually understand her and Mark usually understands her. As for strangers or people that aren't around her as much--she gets shy and doesn't talk as much around them. However, when she does, they typically understand what she says. It's exciting to me that she's becoming a little communicator. I think that a lot of people don't believe us that she talks a lot because she's so shy, but she's been a bit more brave lately and Mark's mom commented on how much she was talking when they kept her the other night. It also makes things so much easier!!!

Oh...other Cassie news...she now sleeps in her big girl bed for night time AND naps. Tonight will make night #8 and tomorrow's nap will be nap #3 that she's been in her big girl bed. She loves climbing up on it and laying down on her new little pillow. She loves "tucking" her baby in and just being a big girl! I can't believe how easy this transition was!!! I think that the crib will be coming down soon, but I just can't do it yet because of naptime...I just can't risk her not napping with my daycare kids.

While we're talking about my big girl, she also moved up to the "big kid" class at church today! It is for 18 months and up. She'll be 18 months on Nov 17, so they just decided to go ahead and move her since she is mature for her age. YAY! She loved it and was excited since "Aunt Micki" (my sis-in-law, Michelle) is her teacher.

OK...I've rambled quite enough. SHEESH! I haven't written this long of a post in a while! Everyone have a great night/day/whatever and I'll catch 'ya later!

That is what I call a post Devon! I'm so glad to hear everything that's going on in your life since I hardly get to see you anymore. Sorry you feel icky, but it will pass and hopefully soon! As for all the Cassie news, it's all wonderful :) She's getting to be such a big girl, which is sad, but at the same time so exciting for all of the new stuff she is continuing to do every single day! I'm so happy for you and your family!

laura said...

Yeah, Devon. I threw up an average of 4 times a day for all 9 months.

I cant wait to see Cassie. I hope she warms up to us quickly so we can hear her talk. All the kids will have so much fun playing together now. They are all a great age for playing together.

I'm counting down... I work three more weekends and then we leave. Can't wait. :-)

Hey, did I ever tell you how much I LOVE it when you write long posts? I love it when you ramble, because you're saying what's on your mind at that moment and makes me feel like we're having an old-fashioned slumber party and we're all propped up on pillows while you pour your heart out. I love it!

As for Cassie, goodness gracious that girl is growing like a weed! Every time I see her she's a different girl! I miss her! I want to see you soon!!!!
