Taming of the Toddler

So I am trying to figure out how to contain my dearest daughter Gabriella! She can now successfully climb in and out of all of her "cages" without getting hurt! Her crib is the only thing I can lock her in that she has not tried to climb out of, but I know she will be working on that one next. I am worried actually.... because we have the stairs... and she is still not 100% stable going down on her own. I am so afraid she is going to climb out of the crib at night and fall down the stairs. Baby gates are useless, as she climbs right over them... I am out of ideas! Please help! Any ideas are greatly appreciated!

Happy Hump Day!

So my appointment today went "okay" I guess I am just not satisfied with the doctor... She seems very unprofessional at times, but she does seem to know what she is talking about. She is very quiet and hard to hear.

As for measurements.... I am measuring at 33 weeks exactly... That is a week and a half behind my due date... Here I was thinking that this baby wanted out now... She told me that she doesn't think we will meet our little bundle until at least October 14th... My due date is October 6th! And October 14th is Christian's birthday.... this could be good or bad... he will be 11 this year. So, I am not really sure if I am happy or not.... I am really looking forward to meeting this baby, but I don't want her to come before she is ready either.... She told me that everything looks good.... blood, pee, weight gain...... So that is good. She has some concerns on our family medical history, but nothing to worry to much over, Gabby turned out just fine!

My next appointment is in 2 weeks (September 12) then another 2 weeks after that.... then I start going every week.... I could have sworn I started the once a week appointments earlier with Gabby... but maybe not, I don't know.

Oh, and the Charlie horses every morning... she showed me some stretches to do before bed that should help loosen my muscles and try to prevent those from happening.

Ok, novel over! Happy Hump Day to everyone!

Good news gone bad!

So that job offer that Chris got fell through. They were not willing to wait for the work visa to go through. So, now we are back to the "what are we going to do" stage. We are both starting to agree that we should have waited on moving. I can easily find work, but Chris wants me to be able to stay home with the kids so he can support the family. But it is killing him that he can't get a job. I seriously think he may be depressed. It is stressing the whole family out, and it sucks! He had an interview with Staples today. It was the first of three interviews with them. He feels like it went really well. The second interview is on Monday at 11. All you prayer warriors out there, we could really use your prayers for this one! If this one does not work out, Chris is looking at flying down to Florida to live with his dad and working. Then he will send money up to me to help pay the bills. We really don't want to have to take it that route, but it may have to happen.

I got my sewing machine peddle in the mail today, and I have already made one cloth diaper! I am so excited to be sewing again!!! I need to get some fabric so I can make my babies some matching clothes! They will kill me for it when they are older, but I think it will be cute!

I have been experiencing contractions the past few days... nothing regular, just random, but it is something I never had with Gabby. This baby means business!

Well, that is all for now.

A bit of news...

Okay, so here is what is going on with us...

Things seem to be on the up and up! DH got a job! YEAH!!! We are very excited, because we can rest assured that we will be okay this year!

Also, the sewing machine that I got about a week ago... I went to plug it in and use it yesterday, but I couldn't... because it had the wrong plug/peddle! I was so upset! And to top it off, we could not find the receipt! Well, I called the company that makes it today... and the lady I spoke with told me that she would check and see if they had any in stock, and if they did, she would call me with a price.... She called back while I was at work, and told DH that they were sending us one, free of charge! Sweet deal, considering I got this $300 machine for around $90!!! So, YEAH!!

And, finally... I had a Tea Leaf Reading done today. I had never heard of this until I moved to PEI.... It is kind of neat, for those who have never heard of it before, basically you drink a cup of hot tea, it is a loose tea, so you have to avoid drinking down tea leaves. When you have just a little liquid left, the tea leaf reader comes to you and tells you what the leaves represent. Well, my leaves basically said that there will be no shortage of money, that stability is on it's way, and that my life is a bit torn in two different directions. I could not have put my life in better words myself.... Considering that I have been doing pretty well in Tips lately at the restaurant, and the news of DH's new job.... so that explains no shortage of money... the stability I think co-insides with the job factor for DH and knowing everything will be okay! And the thing with my life being torn in two directions has to do with the fact that my parents treat DH like and keep telling me that I have changed for the worse in the last 2 years.... and that I need to rethink my choices... I love my family, and my dad and I have always been close, but in the past two months, we hardly talk... this is painful... DH is willing to leave if it would make my life easier, but that is not what I want! Yes, he can be a pain in the @$$ sometimes, but so can I! It is usually when we are both stressed because of my parents... I know they don't mean everything that they say, but DH is done with them, and wants nothing to do with them, because they have said the wrong thing to many times! So, yes, I am torn in two directions, but the one who wants me to choose between them and the other is the one that will loose out! Nobody can ask me to make a choice like that!

So, that is what is going on.... Mostly good news... with a twist of the regular parents stressing me out story!

Sorry about the novel!
