33 Weeks And A Few Things

How Far Along:  32 Weeks

Size of baby: Ellie is the size of a Durian fruit...whatever that is?

Total Weight Gain/Loss: I'm still about 6 pounds over my pre-pregnancy weight which means that I've stalled again.  Oh well, I'm not going to worry about it.

Maternity Clothes: It's been beyond freezing here, so I've been sporting lots of maternity pants which I loath.  Oh well, a warm up is on the horizon.  

Gender: It's a girl...Elizabeth Victoria Watson!!!

Movement: She's a great kicker...I'm talking make you pee in your pants kinda kicker!

Sleep: I almost laughed out loud on this one.  Read the randomness below for more information. 

What I miss: HMM, let's see...Diet Coke!!

Cravings: Nothing really.  I'm still really into fish, which I've never liked before.  Eric is loving this change, so we're planning on shrimp scampi this weekend...yum!!

Symptoms: I'm pretty irrational these days.  I don't remember being this way with Eli, but then again I didn't work full time, own a house, or have a toddler at home.  Maybe it's the combination of everything.  

Ok, now that you've read all about this 33 week in pregnancy, I have a few things racing through mt head.

1. I have yet to blog about my mom's birthday, our weekend trip home,  or my baby shower at church.  Please, stay tuned!

2. Eli has taken a DRASTIC turn for the worse in the sleeping department.  I'll probably write a full post on this sooner or later, but let's just say it's been after 11:00 before he finally drifts off.  This is following threats, talks, spankings, and a few outbursts (from Mommy and Eli both.)  I have ever mentioned how much I hate bedtime, and what happened to this sweet baby who slept all the time?

3. Speaking of outbursts, our woman's group at church is starting a new series tonight.  It's Lysa Terkeurst's "Unglued." 

4. I'm really excited about this because I may or may not have come "unglued" at work several times today.

5. While we're on the subject, I have been keeping a secret from you most of this pregnancy.  The truth is - my normal, even tempered, easy-going nature has been replaced by crazy prego Mego.  Really.  I am ill with Eric. I am annoyed by every little  thing at work, and I can be short with Eli. I've even been known to drop a few curse words in the worst if theses moments.  Who is this person?  I do not know, but I do not like her.  

Pregnant or not, I am ready for the Lord to deal with my "unglued" moments.  I am so excited to start this series tonight, and I pray that the Lord will hit me upside the head with some good, old fashion, Bible-thumping!

A New Decade

Happy 2020, everyone!  I know I'm a month and a half behind, but ya'll, January was brutal!  Not brutal in a tragic kind of way but in a "life will wear you out" kind of way. It started off with the flu...times three!  Eric, Ellie and I had Flu B and missed the first week back to school and work.  Then Eli was diagnosed with Flu A two weeks later.  Thankfully, my in-laws stepped in to help so that we didn't have to miss any more time at work. On top of the sickness, we listed our house for sale. The work it takes getting ready for market is just crazy. But we also have people coming in and out of our home at all hours and it's just kinda overwhelming. Plus, we are finalizing everything with the builder. In full transparency, working with the builder has been the easiest part! Maybe I'll do a little update on the whole building process later this week.  Now that the dust has settled on 2020, I'm going to try my very hardest to keep this litt

Mother's Day Memories

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day.  I want to start by saying that my heart and prayers go out to the "Mommies in Waiting" and to those who are missing their Momma on this special day.  You are not forgotten. We started Mother's Day at church with our crew, and we were lucky enough to be in the nursery.  We let Eli tag along, and he helped facility "Derby Races" around the table while the kids were on riding toys.  It was a hoot!  We also made cards for the mommies. We had some leftovers at home for lunch and then I spent some time laying out while Eric worked on the pool.  It was almost 90 degrees and the perfect way to relax on my special day! Eric made me a shrimp boil for dinner, and we took a family trip to Dairy Queen.  They also have presents coming later this week for me.  Basically, they are awesome!

Hit Me With Your Best Shot

Have I ever told you that Eli loves sports?  Ha!  I look back at him with baseballs and basketballs at 18 months old ,and it blows my mind that he's still so interested.   The thing is, he doesn't discriminate.  Baseball, basketball, football, name it, we play it! Not only do we play sports all day, we also have to watch certain videos on Youtube.   We watch "Boys of Fall," while wearing a football helmet. We watch Alabama's "Cheap Seats,"  John Fogerty's"Centerfield," and Kenny Rogers,  "The Greatest" while holding a bat, carrying a ball, and wearing a batting helmet. And now, thanks to Space Jam, we have to listen to the movie sound track while shooting hoops!  That's a blast from the past! He hasn't found a song about soccer or golf...YET! And with all that playing, who has time to run inside for a potty break?  Not this boy! I never thought
