Got milk

Pregnancy has definitely hit me. I have morning, day, and night sickness like I have never had it before. I find it hard to have the energy just to get up and get everyone dressed much less get out of the house. Yesterday I just decided to stay in and do nothing. My friend came and took Jackson to go play which was really nice. The extreme fatigue and horrific nausea is really getting to me. I have been kind of a hermit and I find myself getting really down in the dumps. It has been so hard to go to the gym, this past week I only went twice. My heart is screaming with envy watching all my running friends continue to reach the goals we all were aiming for. My body just does not have it in me right now. I am praying that in a few weeks I will hit my second trimester and be able to get back to some routine. Our house is ciaos!! On average I have about 6 loads of laundry at one time and I just can’t seem to stay on top of it. I must say the third time is a charm because Greg has really been stepping up this last week. He made dinner twice, had his first trip out of the house ever with both kids, been to the grocery store, mopped, and vacuumed. We have decided to rehire our cleaning lady every other week until I start to feel better which is heaven sent! I have my Dr’s appointment Tuesday so I will update once I go. I don’t you can relate or even begin to understand unless you have had a hard pregnancy. Adding two kids on top of this has been the hardest thing I have ever done in my life. Being 100% responsible for 2 little people when you are so sick is really hard. Ok so here is to a healthy happy second trimester! Oh and my Mom comes back for good after being gone almost a full year in Dallas! She has offered to help which will be great!! Most of you know she is like June Cleaver on speed and I am like June Cleaver on a sedative right now.

Jackson started school and is a thriving little 3 year old. He has a wonderful pair of teachers this year and I could not be happier. It is amazing to see the difference in the teacher can make such a HUGE impact on the child. There is so much positive reinforcement this year that he is so excited to succeed. Last year there was not much enthusiasm or positive feed back. His teacher was great at teaching, but had a very dry and stand offish personality. Jackson would not get close to her until the very end of the year. The second week of school this year he not only hugs, but kisses his teachers good bye. They have such a positive energy about them! He asks every day is it is a school day. His teachers name is Mrs Gaynel and Jackson say Mrs Gay Nayle with the most southern accent you have every heard. Simply precious!

Ava oh AVA~ she is going to give us all a run for our money. She is a pistol! She is so vocal about what she wants or does not want (and not in a pleasant way). She can make the hair on the back of your neck stand up. She is into everything and I mean everything! This morning as I type this in the living room she dumped out Jackson milk and was rolling around the kitchen in it. Every time she stood up she would fall back down and she thought that was hilarious. She has already started swatting at Jackson and making sure she gets her way at all times! At our house you will find Jackson saying, Ava no, Ava stop, Ava I am not playing that game with you, Ava that is not acceptable, this is a crazy girl, Mommy COME GET AVA! The girl can eat twice as much as Jackson and she is like a dog. If you have food she comes right up and begs until she gets some. She is walking everywhere and we call her baby Frankenstein since that is what she walks like. I am not banking on her being the sweet, angelic, graceful girl.

I have not taken any pictures recently, but I will get some sent out this week!

I am so feeling for you :(

The first trimester is always the worst for me, how are you supposed to watch the kids/clean the house/make dinner/exercise when your heads always in a toilet?

On the bright side, you are probably losing weight :)
