For the past week, I haven't posted as often as I would like, partially because Joe was home for 4 whole days in a row and I wanted to spend as much time with him as possible. I have noticed that since I found out I was pregnant, his sometimes crazy hours have been a lot harder on me than they used to be (48 hrs on shift and 24 home leaves little time for us). But we had 4 fun days as a family.
We bought "big girl" bedroom furniture for Julianna. So her room now consists of a new twin bed, a new dresser and nightstand & her crib(nursery dressers are now in Baby K's future room). We want to work on some kind of transition to the twin bed before her crib is needed by Baby K come spring.
Yesterday we went to Ellie's first birthday party, and despite a rough start weather wise, it turned out to be a great day and party. Ellie looked adorable! Erin made her a pink tutu to wear and it was so cute!
Today I am dealing with a sick kid. We had a playdate at our house on Thursday and as of this morning, 6 out of the 7 kids have runny noses and low grade fevers. Julianna's just past the 100 mark, so I gave her some Tylenol. She also started coughing this afternoon after she woke up from her nap...great. Now we're keeping our fingers crossed it doesn't progress any farther.
On the pregnancy front, NO MORE NAUSEA!! YAY!! And I only have 5 more nights of progesterone therapy!! All my weird symptoms have stopped and I have actually had a minimal amount of energy lately. Not sure when I will get all (or at least most) of my energy back, I didn't have this problem of being so run down and tired this early in Julianna's pregnancy.
Hoping to be a better poster this week.
