Well the reason I haven't posted in quite a while is that I am currently on bed rest! Last Sunday I started spotting and cramping. Well the spotting has went away but the cramping is still showing it's ugly head! My heating pad has became my best friend! (Side note: you can't cook your child from being on a heating pad 90% of the day can you??) The doctor is going to do an ultrasound on the 5th but unless the cramping goes away completely the bed rest is the only option. This child is definatly teaching me patience! I am all filled up with patience. Brooklyn went to my mother in laws house on Friday and I can't believe how much we miss the little turd!! Especially her sis! She has just not been the same since she left, last night she was really crabby so we gave Brooklyn a call and she talked to Baylee. You should have seen her smile just hearing her voice! It was amazing!!
Andrew and I celebrated our 4 year anniversary on Monday!! Andrew keeps telling everyone that he has reached a milestone with me- he has been married longer this time then the first time!! YAY!! We have our ups and downs but overall I am so glad he has decided to stick it out with me!! On to year 5!!
So yesterday I spent most of the day with my family at Chubbuck Days at Cotant Park. My family job was to provide the sound and music for this event. My dad downloaded a bunch of music the was played over the speakers! Can I just say I love the way my dad and uncle Doran get into the music. My dad had Baylee playing the air guitar and the drums and his favorite question to ask us is "Who sings this?" We had a lady come up to us and tell us that she enjoyed every song that was being played and the her kids did not because they didn't know any of the tunes. That is one thing I am grateful that my dad has taught us good music. I also enjoyed spending time with my family and seeing that no matter how old you get your uncle will still buy you ice cream. I am thankful for times like this when we can get together and just hang out and also be serving the community!
So Friday I went to my latest doctors appointment and got to hear a faint heart beat of the latest Mortensen. Although this pregnacy has been hard for me especially not planning for it and going through post partum (SPELLING?) and still going through it with Baylee, I have not been the most excited parent to have another child, which I feel so bad about because there are those who can't have children and I never thought I would ever feel any form of regret for one of my children but I find that is what I am feeling. Although I know that it will go away and that I feeling regret only for selfish reasons. I still find it hard. Though hearing the little heartbeat made things feel a little more real. And I hope with time that this will feeling will be a thing of the past and all I will feel is joy. My aunt Amy said that happened for a reason and I may not know it now but one day I will. I just wish I knew it now!! PATIENCE I know!
Someone in my family told Brooklyn we are eating at Cinderella's castle when we go to Disney World in November. The funny thing is Brooklyn has no clue when November is so everyday she tells me she wants to eat at the castle when I ask her what she wants for lunch! It is going to be a long 6 months!
Brooklyn got a new stroller for her dollies but isn't allowed to have until she goes poop in the potty (refer to old blog). She refuses to go number 2 in the potty but really really want her stroller. Anyways she comes to me one night and saysBrooklyn: "My dolly so heavy."Me: "I sorry."Brooklyn: "I think I need my stroller to put heavy dolly in."She thinks she is so slick! Must get it from her dad!
We are pulling into Walmart yesterday and Brooklyn says, Brooklyn: "I get a snow white toy?" Me: "We'll see." Brooklyn: "Don't say no mama. You be nice to me." Honestly what do you say to that?
Brooklyn wakes up a Grandma Lemmons house this morning and tells grandma, Brooklyn: "I wanna make cookies!" (At 8:30 in the morning I might add.) Grandma: "I've got to go to work right now." Brooklyn: "Grandma, girls don't go to work, boys do." Where she gets her logic I'll never know. Hope grandma is ok!
I picked up Drew yesterday and he tells me that he got his license to shoot birds. (Which I am not a fan of of but that is up to him). Anyways he says he was able to go hunting last week. I said- ME: "How did you do?" DREW: "I can't hit the broad side of a barn" just a serious as can be.
Grandma and Brooklyn were making cookies and grandma happened to be a little tired. In the process of making cookies Brooklyn spilled a glass of juice that was on the counter. Grandma apparently said a little too loud "GET DOWN!" Brooklyn ran off crying, a few minutes later she returned and said to Grandma "Grandma, you scared me to crap!"
Brooklyn: Mom, you know what? Me: What? Brooklyn: (In her most serious voice) Trix are for kids! And that silly rabbit keeps trying to get them! He is such a silly rabbit!
04/10 As I was putting the girls down for a nap I told Baylee that if she got out of bed I was going to spank her butt (I have to threaten in order for her to stay put!) Brooklyn always has to add as soon as I say I am going to spank someones butt "With a spoon." I don't know where she got that from. Anyways Baylee this time decided to say "With a spoo, or a fooook, or a knife. Really harrrd. All I could do was laugh.
5/10 We went into the bathroom this evening and miss Baylee had about 15 of the band-aids removed from the paper, spread out and stuck to the bathroom counter. ARRRGGGG!
Baylee and Jaxsen were going crazy tonight wrestling and running all over the living room! Andrew looked at them as they were crawling all over him and said "Who put a quarter in you?" Baylee responded by saying "ME!"
