And last but not least…

weekend is coming

I read this headline on Facebook today about a woman in Australia that weighed 600 pounds and gave birth to a 40 pound baby. WOW! Now if that story is true, WOAH BABY!!! I didn’t read the whole thing but I did see a picture of a very overweight little guy lying on a table in a hospital and it said he holds the record for biggest baby born. It got me thinking about when I was pregnant with Little L. It’s been almost 2 years and I still remember how the nurse acted when she came out at 9lbs., 4oz. The doctor was trying to get me to induce, but I didn’t want to. I wanted her to come on her own and she did. I was being told that she could be 10 or 11lbs. by what the ultrasound measurements were saying. Oldest came out weighing in at 8lbs. But with her I could not keep anything down. I ate, I threw up. I thought about eating, I threw up. I ended up losing 20 pounds in the first 5 months. With Little L, I didn’t have morning sickness all that much. She liked food and I didn’t mind giving it to her. (Although, I can’t stand the smell of peanut butter now, which is what I craved the most of.)

So this nurse kept saying how heavy L was. 9 pounds didn’t feel all the heavy and I really resented her saying it over and over. Then I got a new nurse that night. “Oh she is a big one.” she said.Β  Give me a break would ya.Β  I had to go to the nursery with L so she could get her blood drawn. They brought in another baby weighing over 9lbs. They were talking about how they couldn’t believe 2 babies the same night. Well, how little do you want them? I wanted to ask. But I was too tired to have this conversation. When she was done, I wheeled L back to my room and hugged on her for awhile.

My cousin and his wife had a girl a little after I had L. I haven’t seen my cousin for years, nor met his wife, but my mom had before she moved out west with us. When the baby was born, they sent her a text and a pic saying that she was right around 6lbs. My mom told me and I said, oh she is little. Not really meaning anything by it just trying to come up with something to say. My mom, then says, “Well yeah Kay is not that big.” Wow nice jab at me, thanks mom. She may have not meant the way it came out, but it sure stung a bit. And the whole time I was pregnant, she talked about how my 2 brothers both were born weighing in around 6 pounds, but I came out weighing 9.

But I didn’t care if Little L was 8, 9 or even 10 pounds. As long as she is healthy then I am a happy mom! πŸ™‚

Fat Lip

My little bruiser did it to me again.

Tonight, while we were cuddled up on the bed, she looking so sweet and innocent. We heard sissy come out of her room and start through the house. This is Little L’s cue to “hide”. She will hide under pillows, blankets, dive into corners or just pull you over on top of her so sissy has to find her when she comes into the room. It can be rather fun and quite entertaining. As sissy got closer to the room, L decided to raise up and then dove head first into my face. Her head smashing into my top lip. This makes the second time she has done this to me, first time, I had to hold an ice pack on my mouth for a long time, to keep it from swelling. I have to say that she really has a very hard head!!Β  I knew it was an accident, and I tried not to cry, but I admit, I am a big cry baby and I always, always, get hurt. I sat up when Oldest came into the room and she was asking me what was wrong. It was dark, but I had my head down in my hands trying hard to get over the pain silently. I finally got out what happened, and she told L that she needed to give mommy hugs and say sorry. I was looking up at this point, both of them on their knees in front of me. Oldest leaned in and gave me a kiss on the cheek and usually, Little L will follow suit and plant one on ya. But no, not this time. She raised her fist up above her head and WHAM right down on my face. What the Hell little girl?? I didn’t actually say it but I wanted to. I ran off into the bathroom to cry in private, and hubby was in there. He didn’t know what was going on, so I had to tell him and he went out of the room in a huff. I had gotten into an argument with Oldest earlier and although I didn’t cry, I was very sad, that she felt the way she did at that moment. So hubby was mad, and got onto both girls about why they find it funny to hurt mommy. I recovered from the blow to the lip, and went on out of the room. Luckily it was Little L’s bed time, so I shut the door, turned out the light and made her get on the bed. We never really “made up”, but she did snuggle up next too me as she fell asleep.

Flying Diapers

There is nothing like being woke up by a diaper flying over your head.

Yep, that is how I was awakened this morning. Little L was up before 7:30, which is good since she went to bed before 9 the night before. I grabbed the remote and turned it to cartoons, hoping to lie back down and not think for several more minutes. I turned my back to her and covered my ears, because Mickey Mouse Clubhouse is pretty unbearable for me when I am wide awake, let alone first thing in the morning. You are too chipper there Mouse. Shut the $*&#@ up!

Little L didn’t like that my back was too her so I got a toe in the middle of my back. A toe that started digging and pushing and poking. I asked her to stop. I told her to stop. She finally got bored with it and stopped moving around. Awww…a few minutes of peace. I started to finally doze back off, when something woke me up. When I opened my eyes, I caught a blur of a diaper being tossed thrown over my head. I heard a giggle. I turned back over and there she was, with just her little t shirt on smiling from ear to ear. I grabbed the diaper to find that it was completely dry, so I was scrambling to get it back on her before the water works started flowing and I would be washing the bedding for half the day.

I got to hand it to her, she knew exactly how to get me out of the bed. πŸ™‚

As I sit with my Little L, watching her cartoons. I take a look around at this mess I call a living room. The floor needs swept, the floor needs mopped, I just can’t seem to get on top. There are toys scattered everywhere, cheerios and cheetos under the chairs. The look I have is udder despair. Makes me want to pull out my hair.

The work I see that needs to be done, it just makes me want to take off at a dead fast run.

But then I turn and see my baby, dancing to the silly song that is playing. A smile comes across my face, then I realize there is no race.

Enjoy the mess, enjoy the fun, my little girl is number one!

(Who am I kidding…this mess is making me crazy.)

I think I am tired. Today, was a tiring day. Didn’t do much, but by dinner, I was ready for the day to be over. Little L ate part of her dinner then decided to rake the rest onto the floor. I spent a good part of my Saturday sweeping and mopping, so I took her plate away from her. That didn’t work, she still had enough crumbs on the table to add more to the floor. Then within 20 minutes of dinner being over with she wanted something else to eat. I gave her a cereal bar, she took one bite. Then she decided she was going to get into everything she wasn’t supposed to get into. She even grabbed a loaf a bread off the counter and gave it “hugs” as she ran around the living room. I just sat and watched. Sissy talked her into letting go of it, but the damage was done. I have one very smooshed loaf now. After that,Β  I threw her rump in the tub, sissy got in with her and they played for a little bit.

Come 8p.m. I was counting the seconds till bed time…

One hour and 6 minutes later, she was fast asleep.

Puppy Kisses

Little L loves to give out kisses. She will run from daddy to me, to grandma to sissy, kissing each of us oh so sweetly on the cheek.

puppy kissesLittle L also loves to pretend she is a puppy. She will stick her tongue out and start making panting noises. Yesterday, she crawled up onto my lap, stuck out her tongue and took my hand and petted herself on her head with it. “Oh you are such a good puppy!” I said. She loves it when I do this. I then said, “Are you going to give me some puppy kisses?” She was quite ready to do so. I bent closer to her so she could lick my cheek. Nope, she didn’t want my cheek. She wanted my lips. One lick straight up. “Awww, you are a good puppy.” She licked me again. “OK, that’s enough, puppy.” I told her. Not for her. She licked me all over my chin and lips. It was rather funny. Here I am, trying to get her to stop and she is not giving up at all. I started yelling out help, while laughing so hard. By the time she was done, I was covered in “puppy drool.” I asked her if she was a bull dog, it was that bad. πŸ™‚

On A Roll

So far this week,  Hurricane L has…
1. Pulled a kitchen drawer out so hard and fast, that it hit the floor and broke into pieces.
2. Pulled a blind down on her head.
3. Tore the screen out of the new screen door daddy installed yesterday.
4. Made a hole in the living room wall from slamming the front door into it so hard.
5. Carried the dogs water bowl into the living room, then spilled it all.
6. Pulled her diaper off, pranced around the house. Then peed from one end of the room to the other before we could catch her.

That’s just how she rolls! πŸ˜‰

So how is your Wednesday going?

Too Cute

Giving Little L a bath.
She looks in the mirror…

L: Bye. Bye. *waves to her self*
L: Bye. *starts walking away*
L: Bye. *still waving and walking*
*stops*
L: Ohhh.  *Sad face,  walks back to mirror*
*Gives herself a hug and a kiss*

Tooo darn cute, I have to admit!  πŸ˜‰

Oh my Little L, you are learning so much. You learned your body parts over a month ago, now you are actually saying most of the names to match. It’s so wonderful to hear your sweet tiny voice. Today, you pointed to my ear and said the word without any prompting. Then we looked at the dog and his ears. You wanted so much to touch them, but you are still a bit timid around him at times. They other night, as we were going to sleep,  you pointed to my eye and said the word. That was your first body part word. I do have to be careful, cause that finger coming at my eye still scares me, after that time you poked me in it and sometimes it still hurts.

We think it is way cute how your n’s come out as m’s. You started saying the word no but it comes out “mo”. At dinner a couple of days ago,  you actually shook your finger back and forth and said, “mo mo mo” at me. We all busted out laughing. That’s ok though. You will figure out that n sound soon enough.

You are a pretty smart cookie, and although you can’t say alot right now, you know exactly what we are saying a good part of the time. All those words will be coming very, very soon.

Now if I could just get you to stop smearing yogurt through your hair…
