Cole is crawling.

I can't believe it, Cole can crawl. He is 8 1/2 months so it was definetly time. Yesterday I was sitting with him on the rug playing and i had a drink beside me which was about 4 feet from Cole. I ran into the kitchen for a second and thought I wonder if he can get over to that drink before I can get back, NO! sure enough, in 2 seconds he made his was over, tried to drink it, and saturated the rug. Coke doesnt come out of things easily, in fact I didnt really try, I wanted a new one anyway:)

bath time!

cole loves baths. he loves it so much that whenever he is crying all i have to do is turn the water on and he starts laughing and trying to jump in the sink. take a look..

1st babysitter

so we gave in and had our first babysitter last weekend. we were going to eat then bowling for my friend Ashley Jacksons birthday. well, we decided to take Cole with us to eat,-at Dave's pizza, a total kid zone- and then we would meet the sitter at the house at 8:30 -his bedtime. well, that was the day of the horrible storm, so most roads were closed to get to our house, so it was very confusing for her. anyway, cole was screaming his head off the whole time we were at Dave's so I called her and asked if she could come get him early. (keep in mind i have never met her, so i was clearly fed up) After 30 minutes of trying to get her to the 2 miles we were apart, she gets cole and heads to our house. after being lost for what seemed like an hour, she calls frantically and has broken the key off in our door. needless to say, we come home and get eveything situated. who knows if we will ever go anywhere again.

april showers leave most without power

as you know, we suffered from massive storms yesterday. i have never seen a storm like that EVER. i will admit, pj was yelling for me to get in the closet with cole, and i just stood there in front of our big window, holding cole, and couldnt remove myself from watching it. hail that was the size of tennis balls destroying everything. most of my flowers, that i spend pj's entire checks on, were destroyed. honestly, i was more upset about that than anything else. we brought jack in, and took cover. after it was over we looked all in the back yard, little damage. we went in the den, sat down to watch the masters and i looked out the front door.... this is what i saw...

the picture does'nt really do it justice. but you get the idea. there were 3 homes on my street that had a tree go through them.

i have ordered a new couch. its custom made, therefore it takes 3 months to get here! i sold the previous furniture, so my parents gave us a loveseat for the den until my couch arrives, like next year... anyway, i seem to always forget that i am HIGHLY allergic to their house, because they have lots of animals. 3 dogs and 1 cat. well, everytime i sit on this couch i pay for it the next 5 hours or so. well, last night i watched american idol on this couch, and forgot all about it, as i do everytime! its comfort washes away my memory. as i was going to bed i thought, wow, no allergies. well around 2am i awake with my eyes swollen shut to my face and am making my annoying "pig noise/throat scratch" that only a selected few have heard. so, im taking this couch back and will wait patiently, until june, for the new, non-allergetic one to arrive.

me. food. couch.

i could not go to sleep last night! so between cole waking up screaming 3 or 4 times and Jack's howling i had very little sleep. so, today i did something i NEVER do. i got up, and instead of going to the gym or jogging, i put cole on the floor with a mound of toys, grabbed a bag of chips and sat on the couch and watched regis and kelly. besides the fact that i am obsessed with kelly ripa, i rarely watch the show anymore bc thats usually when i am exercising or cleaning something. i can tell, my robe is'nt coming off until pj gets home around 6pm.

clip and nip your pets

if you didnt watch Oprah today you may have no idea the effect of not neutering or spaying your animals. it was the saddest thing ever. millions of dogs are killed because so many are never adopted. it was shown in graphic detail and i will never feel the same about it. jack better watch out. PLEASE ADOPT, DONT BUY FROM BREEDERS!

nap anyone?

okay, ever since i stopped working and "work at home" people seem to think i do nothing all day. by 9:00 i have done more laundry than you do in a week probably. but somehow the same thing happens everyday. today my dad called at 11:00 and first thing asked is "did i wake you up?" im like no....? then pj calls "are you napping?", then my mother in law! seriously, just because you are home does'nt mean you're asleep.

just sleep on it!

if you have a baby, you understand one of the most difficult things no one has made an invention for yet... changing the crib sheet! it is rediculous how hard it is. after you get the dirty sheet off, you bend over and nearly get the breath knocked out of you from the crib bar hitting you in the stomach trying to reach the darn mattress to get that 3' X 3' sheet that is suppose to fit the 4' x 4' mattress! after wrestling with that for 30 minutes you then put the child down for a nap, only to find him spitting up his midmorning bottle... again.
