Baby Baby Baby

I can't get it to turn but I often find them sleeping together and I love it :)

My baby is almost 7 weeks old! It's ridiculous!

Monday, November 1, 2010


Every day I get to watch my sweet angel sleep, eat, cry, and sleep some more and I love it! I LOVE being a mom. Yes, I get practically nothing done. Yes, I lose huge amounts of sleep. Yes, I don't have time to shower or eat sometimes. Yes, it's incredibly hard. Yes, yes, and yes, It is absolutely worth it. I am convinced that there is nothing better in the whole wide world.
I love how he'll fall back asleep if I play with his hair, how he smiles when he's dreaming, that he sleeps in all the same funny positions as my husband, when he just wants to cuddle with me, that neither one of us gets any sleep when Griff is gone, all his little noises and sounds and well everything, I just love everything.

See?! I do have a belly!

See? See? See! Ignore the face above the belly but I had to post proof to everyone that I do look pregnant and not too bad for being 31 weeks if I do say so myself :)
I promise I looked better when I left the house but hours in the wind and heat changed that pretty fast :(
what do you all think about Griff's beard? he hasn't shaved since football camp, I don't blame him since he'd leave at 6am and return at 10pm, who wants to shave when you can sleep?

(This picture is from Fan Fest thanks to Z. Wade and dad's cool new phone) Mom and Dad came up and spent the day with me since Griff was gone almost all day (what else is new?) we had a great time people watching and waiting for the Football Team to show up. Then Griff reported back to the football facility and mom and dad treated me to lunch at Noodles, it was really good!

Well, I'm bored so I imagine you are too, I'll leave you until next time.

I almost bit into my worst nightmare! No, seriously!
Being the pregnant woman that I am I really like to stay away from foods that are even slightly questionable in what my stomach or digestive system will think of them. That being said I was rather excited to eat my last plum (I only bought three and I bought them 3 days ago), my kitchen area is really dark and I hadn't turned on the lights but why do you need lights to eat fruit? I grabbed the plum and noticed it was really soft, I absentmindedly turned it over and all the juice leaked out! This now required lights. Some of the juice was on my hand so I did what any normal fruit loving person did and licked it off, waste not, BAD IDEA! It was rotten! Smelled .... terrible, I leave it at terrible for you since my stomach is turning writing about it. I went to the sink to inspect the mess and well I opened up a completely bad, moldy plum. SEE!?!
Now I'm timidly eating a peach but I think I'm going to chuck this one too and just go with a banana.

Dinner is Served ... :)

From this: (Spaghetti Squash)

To this: (Cooked Spaghetti Squash)
To this: Dinner!

This is supposed to be much healthier than using actual noodles for a pasta dish like this. They taste really good, not anything like the actual thing but I think I could get used to them, they're lighter than noodles and make my stomach and head feel better about eating Spaghetti. Oh and I forgot to mention that this is easier than cooking real noodles :) no watching the pan or scrapping them off the bottom, just pop it in the microwave and let it cook!

Loves and happy eating!

I'm officially addicted!

I saw these charms at the local fair and wanted to buy every single one I saw but they were kinda expensive and I couldn't validate it so instead I headed to google to learn how to make them on my own and talked my husband into letting me spend a little money which has been very worth it so far :)

I've made 7 charms (with plans to make tons more) and at the 'store bought' price that would have cost me anywhere from $35-$70 ..... I haven't even spent the base price tee hee! totally worth it!!!!! I'm still not as good at it as I want to be but I've come a LONG way from my first one which was gifted to my sister, sorry, I promise to replace that sad little one with a better one :)

these two are are .5 in x 1.5 in and the top one says LOVE one the back side. the tree one is just black on both sides; I didn't want any details besides the tree and just kept it really simple.

The 'JL' one measures 1 in x 1 in and has a hand drawn Dragonfly on the back for my aunt and her love of the bug. The 'Lizzy' one is 1 in x 1.5 in. and has patterned paper similar to that of the one above that Lizzy picked out of my stash. I do all the glass cutting, hand draw all the lettering, and solder the whole thing together. I make them out of a thin glass so they're not as heavy as some you normally find which are only comfortable as necklaces because they will smack you in the hand and kinda hurt as a bracelet.

I'm proud of myself for being able to do this and now to make my mother proud I'm going to devote the same amount of time to cleaning my house haha!

New ..... stuff

So, We're in our new apartment but pictures will have to wait until everything is unpacked and I can find the cable for my camera and actually upload some haha!

the house/apartment is new.

the horrid football schedule is new :( to give you an idea of just how horrible it is Griff leaves at about 6am and returns around 1pm for a break but doesn't actually come home for the day until about 10pm. It is super hard for me to have him be gone that long and not know when he's really going to be home; if I know he's going to be gone at a normal practice I can mentally make myself ok with him being gone from time a to time b but for these two weeks it's never the same, I can't make a schedule and I have a really hard time with it. His break is never at the same time and he never gets home at the same time so I find myself sitting on my couch just waiting to hear his key in the door. I think I have a case of separation anxiety and sadly I thought that only happened to small children.....

I've made some more hair accessories :)I've also learned to Solder :) it's really fun but I need some serious practice to get my charms to look the way I want them to.

Well, that's going to be all for now,

PS I'm 7 months pregnant! yay!

skirt skirt, I made a skirt :)

So I've been crafty lately and I promised I'd post the things I've done so here goes!

I've wanted a circle skirt for a long time now and I figured I could make one easy enough. Six cuts later, some pinning and sewing I had done it!

You can't tell from the picture ( I had to use my phone because my camera is dead ) but it's a very pretty plum color. So all layed out it looks really cute and fun but I made it out of Jersey knit material (so it would stretch over the growing belly and fit after the baby arrives) which is a great comfy matterial but it looked like a limp rag around my body and I was convinced that it was a lost cause.

I was pouting over the loss when I looked at my lap to find the skirt bunched a little to I pinned it and stood up; SO COOL! It hung really nicely so I proceeded to pinch and pin all the way around until I found the pattern I liked and then stiched all of the gathers in place.

I love the final result!

Here's a list of some 'Firsts' in this pregnancy;

obviously it's my first pregnancy :P
I first saw the baby at 10 weeks
In the same ultrasound he was perfectly still untill he started kicking like he was running a marathon. This marathon only lasted a few seconds and then he was perfectly still again.
I felt my first kick at 16 weeks while sitting on the couch at work.
We think the first time I felt hickups was at about 20 weeks.
At 20 weeks and 3 days we descovered that he was in fact a boy.
This is the first time in my life that I've had heartburn and I really don't like it.
By aprox 22 weeks I was noticing his first responses to things outside the womb; he kicks when Griff leaves in the morning and kicks when Griff puts his hands on my stomach.
At 24 weeks I saw his face for the first time (in an ultrasound).
25 weeks marks not only where I am now but also the first time he has moved for long periods of time; today he kicked and rolled over one spot on my side for 25 min! It was very entertaining and yes, I sat there and just smiled the whole time. Who needs Tivo? I have a kid! Well Fetus :)

So my life is full of changes right now and I'm working on more changes too.

I've finally changed the look of my blog.

I've made a resolution to update at least once a week. (please be patient as I work into this since we've seen how well I've done lately haha!)

I'm moving to a new apartment where Griff and I will be able to begin to really build a home together and I'm beyond excited! For those that don't know we've been living in his grandparents basement; not that I don't love it here and everything but I will be able to expand from a bedroom and bathroom to a full apartment with two bedrooms, a bathroom, my own kitchen, living room and walls I can decorate to my style and hearts content!

Packing; packing totally counts as change :)

The biggest change in my life right now is the ever growing Roblecito. He weighs about a pound now and he's about a foot tall. If you're still confused; I'm pregnant, it's a boy and I'm 24 weeks and 5 days or in other words 6 months along! Yes, I realize that I should have talked about this sooner but with everything going on I've lost track of time and slacked off. Only under the recent circumstance have I been able to to really think about the blog thing. Present circumstance being bed rest, now granted it's only for a week but still, I have a ton of time and not much to do so what do I do? Play games on the pod, sleep, eat, sew what little scraps of fabric I can get my hands on, wait for Griff to get home and entertain me or just talk to me, watch movies and then it hit me; *thought* "You have totally forgotten to update your blog!" * So here I am repenting and doing my best to start again.

I know this is not entertaining at all but I'm going to try and write more often and maybe even get my camera up and running again so that I can show you all the nifty crafts I've been working on over the last while.

Three Months!

So I know this post is not only long in coming but also late, sorry!

As the title says Griff and I have been married for three months now! It is so crazy and so amazing all wrapped together perfectly.

I'll try to update you all on the things we have been doing, so here goes:

We went to Canada not too long ago for the weekend to see the Muniz family be sealed in the temple. It was very intimidating for me as I was definitely a language minority but regardless it was an amazing experience. I also met a very amazing man; he knows an incredible amount about the gospel and well .... everything! We stayed with Tom for the one night we spent in Canada and by the time we left in the morning I was almost in tears because I felt like I was leaving a lifelong friend.

I'm now working as a nanny.... again (for those who didn't know). This job is far from anything I'm used to; I work for a doctor and she is on-call for 13-24 hrs so during that time I sit in my room in case she has to deliver a baby or check on a patient. Most of my time is spent on my computer which means I really have no excuse for never updating my blog but alas I am a student too :P

Griff lately has been extra sensitive and ultimately adorable. With his crazy football schedule leaving the house by 5am some mornings and not returning home till after 6pm practically everyday I have been missing him more than ever. Then add my shifts on top of that where I don't see him at night (my shifts either go from 7am to 7 am or 6pm to 7am four of five times a month). We both have class too so that fills the time in between and honestly makes me quite irritable and just a sobbing mess when I'm alone and he's gone, yes, I honestly cry when he leaves me. Anyways, he knows that I've been having a hard time with this situation and has become super-husband; he calls me when I'm at work and reads to me till I fall asleep, I have a really hard time sleeping away from him and this is the only way I fall asleep.
When, on the rare occasion, we have a day together we never run errands alone; it takes longer, yes, but time is so very precious and he knows that it makes the time apart less 'bad'.
I also have been getting stressed with school, homework, and housework; Griff will try to do little things while I'm at my night class so that when I come home we can have dinner and relax for a bit before we have to go to bed. One day in particular I was extremely stressed and needed to write a paper as well as finish the laundry and the cleaning so Griff told me to work on my paper and he'd "race" me to finish things around the house. He did all of the laundry and made me the best comfort food ever; a grilled peanut butter and jelly sandwich, it may sound gross but it is something my daddy used to make me and I haven't had it in years. It's like chicken noodle soup when you have a cold, it just makes you feel better. He knew I was stressed past my ears and starving and trying to get everything done so he just stepped up, he then told me to get cleaned up and took me to dinner 'just because'. I love him sooo much and I can't imagine spending precious time with anyone but him.

So I guess I should have named this post "I love my husband more than anything in the whole world" but I didn't :P
