Perfect... I'm not

Today while reading some of the blogs I follow I noticed that quite a few of them were talking about aging. Then I ran across a good friends blog and she told me to blog this so here ya go... O and I hate talking about getting old. HA!!!!

So even though I do think I am pretty perfect like 99% of the time LOL JK I had to really stop and think about what I am SO NOT PERFECT about. Here are a few things.

  • I'm lazy. Simple as that. I never really used to be but after gaining all this extra weight over the last couple of years I really have gotten lazy. This makes me so sad cause I was always that overweight person that still really enjoyed life. I'm not saying I don't enjoy life now but I do find myself saying no or that can wait ALOT more then I ever would have. But this is something I am working on.
  • I'm not a size 2 and never will be. My goal weight is 125-135 lbs but I don't even know if that is possible. I always thought I had big bones but according to my doctor they are small but are they a size 2 small?????
  • My teeth are not perfectly together. Straight yes but after having wisdom teeth taken out they have been spreading. Guess ill be the 25 -26 year old with braces. DAMN IT!
  • I am not rich. And most likely never will be but as long as I have Sean and Eviee I am richer then most. :)
  • I judge people left and freaking right. Ive mentioned in a past blog that I am trying to change this and that I am but it is still something that is very hard to change but change I will.
  • I am not a very good step mom. I love them to death but being a step parent is hard as hell.
  • Sean wants one more baby (boy) and I really don't think I ever will want to have another child.
  • I can not spell worth a flip.
  • I don't have a College Degree
  • I don't have alot of friends these days well I don't know that I ever had alot of friends but Ive always had the ones that matter and they will always be in my life. Making new ones isn't something I care to do.
  • I am the worst baker you have ever met!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
OK well Katie this is what I could think of while Eviee was napping LOL thanks for making think about how not perfect I am. LOL!!!!!!!

11 months old

                

         11 months is here and will past with what will feel like at a blink of an eye.


Eviee  is weighing in at 21.6 lbs

Her hair is coming VERY SLOWLY but surely ;)

Eyes are gonna stay blue!!!!



She is eating solids five times a day. Three meals and two snacks.

We had been giving her big people food but she was having a lot of trouble sleeping at night so I took her back off of any and all big people food and shes back to sleeping...kinda

Sleeping was something Eviee was great at for the first several months of her life but these last five months haven't been the best. She is still waking up one to two times a night for a bottle. She is still going to sleep between 9-10 pm and for the most part wakes up at 9am. Still co-sleeping.

She is in between cloth diapers and disposable. I thought I liked the cloth diapers but now I'm kinda thinking maybe not.... LOL my mother is saying "I TOLD YOU SO" HA!

Sippy cup is going great!

Still taking bottles.

Still eating organic.


Totally in love with any kind of baby doll or stuff animal.

She also loves books.

Logan is the light in her eyes.

She is talking up a storm. Sean and I swear we have one smart kid! It  sounds like she is already saying "I love you momma" and this morning I told her to "tell Logan thank you" and SHE DID! I don't care what you say I know shes saying it LOL

She now has four teeth and more coming soon ;)

Still not walking nor trying but why would you when you can be carried around every where you go hehe

She plays peek-a-boo STINKIN CUTE!!!

Wearing 9-12 month clothes.

Size two shoes.

Her favorite toy right now is this little yellow baby doll that has wings. We call her bumble bee baby and Eviee will love all over that doll. So cute to hear her make the "aww" sound when holding that baby.

Pictures are getting difficult. She doesn't stay still for very long LOL

In less then a month we will be celebrating Eviee's first Birthday and I am in total shock. How is it even possible that I will have a one year old??? Well what I do know is that Eviee is my dream come true. She is all I have ever wanted. She is more then I could have ever dreamed. It amazes me how she gets cuter by the second. How I fall more in love with her by the second. How she has given me a feeling of complete. Happy 11 month birthday my Eviee Rae

Yep!

So I did it!!!! Yep I really did! Can you believe it??????

I WENT RUNNING!!!!

I about died.

I was hurting.

I felt like I was going to pass out.

I felt embarrassed.

I got all hot and sweaty (which I hate)

But I did it. Finally after talking about it for a long time I put on those running shoes grab the ipod and I went for a run.

I feel very happy with my self. And I do think it will take some time but I will become a runner!!!!!!

  • Sean and I love the show The Big Bang Theory! FREAKING LOVE!
  • I'm trying to finalize everything for Eviees first birthday
  • I feel like my OCD is coming back. BAD!!!
  • This last week all I can think about is having another baby. (Dang camping with the family)
  • I had my first experience with my daughter having a broken heart. (my step daughter) about killed me I felt so sorry for her. Dangs boys better just stay away.
  • I really plan to organize the house over the next few weeks (OCD I'm tellin you)
  • Does anybody "really" get along with ALL their siblings???
  • My car needs cleaned out BAD
  • The gutters need cleaned out (OCD) Last year I didn't care about them damn gutters and now.....
  • I really need to start exercising. Old habits die hard. I wish someone would come kick my butt out of bed everyday and make me do it!
  • Sean and I are planning to go to Georgia in Sept and I cant wait.
  • I'm getting really excited about buying smaller clothes.
  • I was a good little southern girl and walked my butt over and met the new neighbors.
               Anyways thats about it. Wow two post in one night. Im doing good!!!!

Cloth Diapers

Well as I mentioned before when I actually got a chance to "really" use cloth diapers I would let everyone know how I feel about them so here ya go....

I LOVE THEM!!!!!!
I hate them.
I like them.
I dislike them.
Sean HATES THEM!!!!
But in the end I really really LOVE THEM!!!!


PROS :

They are so much better for your baby.
They save you tons of money over the course of the time your baby will be in diapers.
They are really cute!
They are good for the environment. (not that I really care but)
Less diaper genie refills to buy LOL $ 7.99 each
They are easy!
They are cheap.
And kinda cornie but I feel kinda hip using them!!! LOL did I really just say hip??? Anyways.....

CONS :

Poopie diapers SUCKS!!!!!
If you are traveling and she poops in one plastic bags of any kind in the heat, in the trunk of the car FREAKING SMELLS AWFUL!!! Must carry a wet/dry bag with you all the time.
You do have yucky diapers waiting around until wash day. Around our house wash day is everyday because my OCD cant handle them sitting around but most people only wash every two to three days.
If you know nothing about them it can be overwhelming.
They make your child's bottom half bigger so some clothes may not fit right.

So this what I have found out about cloth diapers so far. We are only into it three weeks and I still do not cloth diaper at night and honestly I try to not us CD if I know she is going to poop. (most of the time she goes same time everyday. MOST) Ha I'm sure you wanted to hear that LOL but all in all I really do like them. I like knowing that I am using something safe on her sweet little bottom and I also like knowing that I'm saving money. So far in this last three weeks between using CD and cloth wipes (most of the time) I have saved us about $90. Not to bad. In a years time I will have saved about $1248 (that is when I stop useing pampers 100%)

 Those of you who are expecting or even already have a child should really check into them. I still LOVE pampers but they are not second on my list. If you have any questions just ask me and I will tell you what I know.   :)
