This afternoon Jeremy took a nap and Brendan and I were a little bored. Okay. Well I was a little bored. So we decided to make some christmas cookies. He loved it. He was a big help. :)
That has been our Christmas Eve so far! We are enjoying him so much and wanted to share. I wish everyone a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year!

My new wake up time.
Everything is loud and will wake him.
I now dislike restaurants that do not have a changing place.
My dogs seem to be always on a mission to sabotage nap time.
My body will never be the same. I seriously thought things would go back to normal!

The best caption for the photo came from Aunt Megan:
"You wanna buy tickets to the gun show"
Such a Ladies man...
...and he's spent.

All I paid was tax for all of those baby products. It was glorious. The check out lady was very impressed. Thank you Cammie for showing me how to do this and getting the addiction started.
In other news, my sister made a blog too!! Her website can be found at http://www.megjoshmolly.blogspot.com/. I can't wait to read more posts from you sissahoe:)
That's all for now...just thought I would show off the fab deal.

**Me Being Crafty**
I know it may be a bit early but I really wanted to decorate for Halloween and Fall. So J watched Brendan and off to Michael's I went. I decorated the mantle. I also made a sweet wreath. Oh yes. With the left over pieces I made a centerpiece for my table. Here are my before and after pics.
I found this way cute chore chart online. I know I have quite some time before I can bust this puppy out on Brendan...but I am so going to use it. You can find it here: www.parents.com/chorechart I come across way cute ideas sometimes either in books, other moms, magazines, internet, etc....So I decided to make a binder of ideas, games and other things I find along the way for Brendan.
**Me trying to get back in shape**
I decided after 7 weeks that I need to get my butt back into exercising! I lost alot of weight right after he was born but then came to an abrupted hault. I want to lose about 7 more lbs. I love doing videos on the T.V. So I started the Jillian Michaels 30 day shred. H-o-l-y Cow, I am so freakin out of shape. You should see me trying to actually do the entire video. It's actually quite the show and I'm sure Brendan laughs at me.Our latest obsession this holiday weekend has been Lost. We find that in our no-sleep state that buying seasons of shows that we never watch is a good idea. We are too tired to do anything else. We never really watched the show so we bought season 1 and put it in. We watched that in record time and now are on season 2. It's a pretty good show. There are times were it gets on our nerves like OK no more flashbacks! Or the fact that if people would just communicate to the others things would be a little easier for them. Everyone likes to keep their secrets and it drives us crazy. Overall, we have enjoyed watching it.
Well this blog is done for now. I have a squirming little boy on me that wants to cuddle.
Tata for now,

Today is Brendan's 1 month update :) He is getting so big and growing every day. A few new things he is doing:
- Starting to lift his head way up during his 'tummy time'
- smiles randomly when you talk to him (it could be gas but I think he really smiles)
- talking to himself before he goes to sleep at night (well he makes little sounds)
- looks at toys, people and other things that get in his face. :)
We have had one crazy fun-filled month. If I wrote everything that went down this month you would be reading FOREVER! I just want to thank our family for helping us! It was so nice! I PLAN on writing more often in the blog to keep you up to date!
Enjoy a new freshly taken pic of the B-man:
and here is another one with Daddy:
He looks thrilled.
Anyways, will write soon:D

Here are some new "30 week" pictures that I made J take of me:) He doesn't like to be my photographer. I tell him it's his duty. I like how I still pose in my "skinny" position even though Im preggers. It's natural now. All of my poses are like that. Makes me feel skinny.

this is what happened:
I think I'm going to clean now.
Saturday, May 2, 2009
Thank you for all the prayers, they were answered and we got a clean bill of health on Thursday! I am 25 weeks this week!! 25! It is going by so fast. I HAVE to post a picture soon of my belly. I know. This week I have been full of energy and have been getting lots of things done around the house. I want to connect my energy boost in a prenatal workout video I have been doing. It's called Erin O'Brien's Prenatal Fitness Fix. I LOVE it. She also includes a video with a postnatal workout...
Look at this little guy's foot!
Things I have done this week:
Okay, well I really didn't do this but I watched as we had our ugly wood garden wall knocked down and replaced by this new and improved stone wall.
I organized all my crafts and made a little section of the house for all my crafty work.
We went to see Wolverine. Which I really didn't have high hopes for. I was like Xmen...really J. I didn't put up that big of a whine because at the very least I get to see Hugh Jackman with his shirt off. Bonus: Ryan Reynolds - not too bad either. BUT it was a pretty good movie. I was entertained by it anyway:)
I went and bought Dance Dance Revolution (DDR) for xbox this week. I wanted to try it out. For those of you who are not fimilar with DDR it's a game with a dance pad. Arrows come on the screen and you have to match the arrows in sequence...like your dancing. It looks like this:
So...J and I decided to have a dance off. P.s. I'm alot better at this game then he is. WHOOHOO. A game I can beat J in. (okay...he will argue the fact that he is better at ONE song than I am...the song you ask...Gloria Estefan's Conga. lol. )
Oh...look a bonus. A little shot of the belly.
Now for Brendan's room!! Here are the pics of Brendan's little room. It's not finished but it's started. I think you can click the pictures to see bigger versions.
Cute huh. :) I am now going to leave you with a cute shot of Rogue. Sometimes, she can be so peaceful and cute...usually when asleep.

After they left, Mom and Chet came by to visit us. We went to LA for the day and toured the Warner Bro. Studios then went down to Hollywood Blvd. We also went to the vineyards and had a shopping spree day. My mom took me shopping and I got some new clothes. We had a really good time with them. Here are some pics of their visit.
After they left, we had our last set of visitors, J's Parents, Gloria and Paul. Again! I have no pictures because of my wonderful camera so send me those pics! We had a great time with them. We went to the Hearst Castle. It was amazing! We did the first tour and the evening tour, both were really fun! It was really cold and rainy that day but we still had a great time. We also went to see the elephant seals. They were HUGE and smelly but cute. They kind of reminded me of Rogue:
We were also lucky enough to see the wild zebras that run wild on the Hearst property. Sorry, no pics:( We had a great visit complete with a fun day of craft shopping. Who knew that Santa Maria was a quilting mecca. Anyways, as you can see we have had a pretty fun-filled month.
