I decided about a month ago that I wanted to try knitting socks. I don't normally knit things that are "hard" but I figured it wouldn't be that bad and my mom could help me with it. They were actually pretty easy to do. I have made 2 pairs so far...one for my hubby and one for me. The hardest part is knowing that I can't wear them until both socks are finished so my mom and I decided to try and knit them 2 at a time, it was not harder...just more tedious. At least when I am done I know I will have 2 socks and won't have to wait for the other one. I am really enjoying knitting socks. It's a small project that I can bring with me places (if I went anywhere). It's also the same all the time so it's easy to remember.

My hubby is home sick and both him and A2m are sleeping so I'm finally able to spend some fun time with J2.5. We haven't done any art work in a long time (other then him just coloring on his own) so I broke out the paints. I am cooking chicken soup for supper and when I chopped the end of the celery off it gave me the idea to use it as a stamp. :) He had fun making the prints but got bored with it pretty quickly. He also doesn't like to be dirty so he was a little more worried about the paint he got on his hands then actually printing with the celery. Haha. He made several papers and was very proud of them. We are gonna have to try and do things like this more often. I love art and would live for my children to love it too (it's ok if they don't though).

J2.5 loves helping us with chores around the house. He sweeps the floor, puts away the clothes, does dishes, picks up his toys, etc. I know he won't always like to do chores, but I'm hoping that I can make him understand that we all have to help out around the house because that's what families do. :)

For some reason both my kids do not like to be worn in carriers. Every time I try to wear them they fuss and grunt and act like they want to get out of them. J2 refuses to be worn at all anymore and A6w doesn't have a choice. She has to be worn for me to get things done around the house. I am hoping that she will get used to it. If you have any tips to make it easier then please share them with me. I can use all the help I can get. :)

I am just sitting in my living room, in the dark holding my baby girl. She is having a rough time trying to sleep but I know she is tired. She had an awesome day/night yesterday. She slept without grunting and waking herself up over and over. This morning she seems kinda gassy and maybe her tummy is upset...I don't know. It's so hard to tell sometimes but I just do the best I can to keep her comfortable...even if I have to hold her. She is spoiled to me already (even though they say you can't spoil a baby). She is so content when she lays on me. My hubby even has to hold one of my shirts near her sometimes when he is trying to settle her down. She just loves her mommy. It makes sense though because she is here with me all the time and no one else. I think she is finally sleeping. I will have to try and put her down soon because J2 is gonna wake up and want some breakfast.

I just discovered blogger for my iPhone. I might be able to post more often because I don't have to find time to sit at my computer. I will also be able to put pictures from here too. I still haven't had time to put my baby girls pictures on the computer yet so I am going to post some from my phone. :) I think I'm going to like this. I missed having an iPhone and I'm so glad that we are able to have them again. She is growing so fast. I can't believe that she is 19 days old already. Time passes by so fast. She has already changed so much since she was born.

1. I love the feeling of my baby sleeping on my chest in the morning.
2. Seeing J2 smiling and happy when he wakes up always brightens my day.
3. Being pregnant with my little girl is what I will remember the most from 2012.
4. My favorite family recipe is taco salad, ground meat stew, cheeseburger soup...I can't decide.
5. When I want to spoil myself I have a trip to the store to buy art supplies.
6. Right now, Ugly Betty is my favorite TV show...I love Netflix!!
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to remembering that it's Friday and spending time with my hubby, tomorrow my plans include doing things around the house and taking care of my children and Sunday, I want to relax and hang out with my family (and probably get some knitting done)!

We have been super busy here lately. My little girl was born on New Years Day. It's only been a week, but I feel like it's longer then that...no sleep will do that to you. haha Please forgive me if this post doesn't make any sense, but my brain isn't functioning properly at the moment. Right now J2 is standing on the side of me playing with his cars and A1w is sleeping in her car seat. I had a few minutes so I thought I would write this blog post to update everyone on what was happening. She is due to eat soon so I don't have much time. A1w had a dramatic entrance into this world. I opened up way faster then I thought I would. Had an epidural at 9cm, but it didn't take effect too much and I felt a lot of it. I was able to have my vbac though so I am grateful for that. :) Breastfeeding has been going better then expected. She nurses like a champ and I am making lots of milk. I am so happy about that b/c that was one of the main things I was worried about. She has almost gained back to her birth weight already. She weight 8lbs. 7oz and was 20" long. I was not expecting her to be that big. She doesn't look that big though. She has very small, delicate features. I will post some pictures when I get a chance to. I got a new camera as well so when I learn how to use it I will be able to get some on here. I have to go now, but time to feed my little one. I can't believe I am a mommy of 2 now. It's so surreal to me (or maybe that's just the lack of sleep talking). I am enjoying it for the most part though. :)
