I Forgot....

Lola's stats..........

Weight:: 17 pounds o_O
Length:: 27 1/2 inches o_O

I can't remember her head size, but it's big!! HAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!! She's very well proportioned and she's much bigger than babies her age. :D That's our girl!!!!!!♥

She has been flipping over, by accident, more and more. She gets soooo angry when that happens, it's hilarious!!!!! Kevin and I were away this weekend and it hurt my milk supply but as soon as I picked her up she grabbed my left boob and tried to latch on! I guess she missed me. heheheheheeee!!! I've been pumping, pumping and doing even more pumping just to keep up with her. I might have to start her on formula soon if my supply doesn't come back soon. :( I was hoping to exclusively breastfeed her for a whole year, but our little getaway messed that all up!!!!!!!!!!! -_- KEVIN! I just love that Lola has no problem breastfeeding at all!!!!!!! She latches on and won't let go till she's done. Kevin and I laugh when she goes into "boob rage". "Boob Rage" is what happens when I have to tear her away from my left breast and put her on my right breast. That few seconds it takes is like TORTURE for Lola. You'd think she was being killed. LOL!! Poor thing. She loves to eat. :)

Raven and Lex are doing great. Lex has been sleeping with us because we were away and he wants to make sure we don't leave again. HAHAHAA!! I don't mind it at all. He sleeps late when he's with us. He slept till almost 9 a.m. this morning. NICE!! Lola, on the other hand, has been waking up almost every 2 hours screaming. :( I think she has thrush. She has a few tiny white spots on the tip of her tongue and I'm pretty sure they hurt her. She also sounds like she had a small cold/chest cold, she's raspy. No fever, nothing..........we came home and it sounded like she was getting over a cold. I don't know! If the spots are still there tomorrow I'm taking her in. We'll see. I thought that babies who were breastfed didn't get sick or have things like that happen? WTF?! Anyway.

Weightloss........... -_- I don't even want to talk about it. I was SOOOO lucky with Raven and Lex, SO lucky....not so much with Lola. The weird thing is, I lost ALL the weight right after she was born, but then I put it right back on about 40 days postpartum. o_O WHY?! ((sigh)) Oh well. Yesterday was my first day trying out Jillian Micheals workout dvd, 30 day Shred. Yesterday was Day 1 and Oh. My. God. I could barely walk afterwards. My legs were shaking and my arms were aching. I could barely carry Lex down the stairs. That Bitch is HARD!!! I like it though. 30 minutes every other day until I can do it every day without shaking. I want to be able to do it with little effort. I want my strength back! I don't like being out of shape, and I am seriously out of shape. Not much longer though!! My goal is to be back to my normal self by Christmas. Kevin wanted me to do some body cleansing thing, in other pills, thank you. I don't need drugs to get back in shape. I want to he HEALTHY, no sickly skinny. I'll get there! Wish me luck!

19 Pound Baby

HAH!!! That's the dream I had last night about my friend's unborn child. I dreamt that he weighed 19 pounds and when I went to see him in the hospital he was in the tub and 3 nurses were bathing him. o_O And he was looking RIGHT at me! Beautiful baby though. :)  This is her first and probably last baby. LOL!!!!!

4 Months Old

Lola had her 4 month checkup last week. :) She is doing really, really great and she's huge! She's the size of a 7 month old. HAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!! OMG, I almost about died when the doctor told me. She is in the 97th percentile for everything! HAHAHAAAAA!! LOLA!!!! :) I love my baby. Yeah, so.....the appointment was HELL! I tried to do Kevin a favor and took all the kids with me so he could rest. I will NEVER be doing that again. Ugh! Lex was a terror the entire time. I wanted to kill him. (Not really , but you know what I mean.) He would not stop touching everything and anything he could get his hands on. And Raven, for once, was not much of a help, she was more of a problem then anything else. It was one of those days where she tried to control everything he did and you just can't do that with a 2 year old, you can only try to keep them from hurting themselves or someone else. Sometimes you just gotta let them go and try not to stop them. She kept trying to keep things from him, taking things from him that were actually harmless and she kept saying the word "No" over and over again. WHAT. THE. FUCK. I was so furious. I couldn't even talk to the doctor. Raven was getting louder and louder. At one point I told the doctor to excuse me, turned to Raven and said..."Why did I bring you? You're stressing me out more than he is. Is there a reason you have to YELL over us? We're trying to talk and all I hear is you yelling at Lex. Just stop.". The doctor looked at me and said...."I have 3 daughters, I understand." Not yet, but you will! LOL! She thought that was funny.

But seriously though......this whole teenager thing is NOT good. I hate it. Her hormones are OUT of control. She's bitchy, moody, mean and tries to control everything around her. Sometimes the words Boarding School sound sooooo nice.'s that bad. And the worst part of it is.....that it's NORMAL!!! WHAT?! UGH! I remember saying...."My daughter will NEVER be like that. NEVER! She's so sweet and kind and helpful"....yeah, I'm eating those words now. Most days she's great, but when she's bad, she's bad. Makes me want to apologize to anyone I was mean to while I was a teenager. -_-

All over my kitchen floor. Thank YOU, Lex!!! -_-

Being Parents.....

Means that you have to give things up. Kevin and I have given up a lot, and we don't mind one bit. We don't have friends over, we rarely go out and we never buy ourselves anything any more. When Raven was little, and she was an only child, we would have people over for dinner and drinks, but they'd bring their kids and we'd call it a night at 9 p.m.. It was always nice to have people over and I do miss it at times, but I know that things will get easier and when Lex and Lola are older we can start doing the things we used to do. But for now, we are happy with going away together, just the 2 of us, every few months. I'm looking forward to our trip to New York, but I'm going to miss our babies!

Horrible, Horrible Morning

Lex has hated me the past few days. He wanted nothing to do with me, he only wanted Daddy. He was hitting, kicking screaming in my was awful. I had Lola in bed with me and he woke her up with his tantrum. It was all down hill from there. I have felt like crap all day. I was in a horrible mood all morning but still trying to be as nice as possible to Lex because I felt guilty for yelling at him this morning. Some times the only thing that works with him is me raising my voice. I hate that. I hate that I have to scream at him, punish him, pop him on his bum or put him in time outs. :( He's giving the Terrible Twos a whole new meaning. o_O

I'm at work now, so maybe a little space will do us both a world of good. It hurts my feelings when he tells me to "Go away! Leave me alone!". I'm like....WTF?! I'm here ALL day with you taking care of you, trying my best and here he is not wanting me around. ((SIGH)) I'm sure things will get better soon. It's to be expected, but I thought we were in the clear after Lola was born. He took to her pretty well, and still loved me dearly. Now he wants NOTHING to do with me. NOTHING!!! :( I just want my sweet, little boy back. NOW!

We Have A Mouse In Our House!

Just look at him....

He refuses to take it off. He even slept in it. HAH!!!!!!!!!!! Too cute.♥

A New Home

This is my new home.......blogger. It'll be about me, my kids, my husband or crazy life and a journey through my very last pregnancy. It won't always be pretty, but it will be honest and fun. I'll post about the things I love, products I can't live without, the horrors of raising 3 kids, the joys of raising 3 kids, the ups and downs of marriage and best of all......ME!

Still Sleeping....

Lex is still sleeping!! He hasn't been feeling well the past few days and has been a TERROR!!!! UGH! He wouldn't sleep, nap or even stay in bed past 5! Poor Kevin. I was with Lola, who sleeps great, so I was the lucky one. Now today he decides to catch up on some much needed rest. Poor baby. :( I'm just hoping he wakes up in a good mood. :/ Lol, on the other hand, is always in a great mood. LOL!!! Speaking of Lola.....she's been biting me. -_- I think it's time to thing about weaning her. I was hoping to make it to 6 months exclusively breastfeeding, but then this started. OUCH!!!!!!! I can't keep it up or I might lose a nipple, and I'd be pretty pissed about that. Even though she has no teeth, it still hurts pretty bad. Now imagine her teething. O_O No. Thank. You.

Apple Picking = Lots Of Apples

We took the kids apple picking yesterday and had so much fun! But now I have 30 pounds of apples. LOL!!! I'm about to go make homemade apple crisp and try my hand at making apple pie tomorrow. o_O We'll see how that goes. LOL! Pictures on Flickr, as usual. :D

That's how long Lola slept........8 p.m. till 8 a.m.! I just finished nursing her and she's lying on the floor next to Lex watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. I love them!

This Is Nice......

Real Mothers don't eat quiche; they don't have time to make it.

Real Mothers know that their kitchen utensils are probably in the sandbox.

Real Mothers often have sticky floors, filthy ovens and happy kids.

Real Mothers know that dried play dough doesn't come out of shag carpets.

Real Mothers don't want to know what the vacuum just sucked up.

Real Mothers sometimes ask 'Why me?' and get their answer when a little voice says, 'Because I love you best.'

Real Mothers know that a child's growth is not measured by height or years or grade... It is marked by the progression of Mama to Mom to Mother...

4 YEARS OF AGE - My Mommy can do anything!

8 YEA RS OF AGE - My Mom knows a lot! A whole lot!

12 YEARS OF AGE - My Mother doesn't really know quite everything.

14 YEARS OF AGE - Naturally, Mother doesn't know that, either.

16 YE ARS OF AGE - Mother? She's hopelessly old-fashioned.

18 YEARS OF AGE - That old woman? She's way out of date!

25 YEARS OF AGE - Well, she might know a little bit about it.

35 YEARS OF AGE - Before we decide, let's get Mom's opinion.

45 YEARS OF AGE - Wonder what Mom would have thought about it?

65 YEARS OF AGE - Wish I could talk it over with Mom.

The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole, but true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows, and the beauty of a woman with passing years only grows!

It's been a little over a year since I found out I was pregnant with Lo. WOW! HOLY MOLY!! Time sure does fly!! She is already doing that trying to sit up thingy they do at this age. I'll post a video tomorrow on YouTube. It's amazing how fast she's growing. I guess they all grow up fast, but when it's your baby, baby you expect it to go slower. Guess not. :/ Kevin came up to me the other day in Old Navy with a cute pair of baby boy socks and said...."AWWWW!! Honey, look! Can we please have one more? PLEASE?!" O_O FUCK NO!!! HAH!! Sorry. No more for me, thank you very much. Let's just put it this way.....if there is another baby in our future, I can't see her or him. I could see my other three very clearly.........but no more. I'm done. He may think I'm gonna change my mind, but I won't. I have plans!!! I NEED/WANT to see the Amazon and I can't do that if I keep having babies. I'm very happy and content with the ones I have now. :D

I gotta get to bed. I should already be there but my kitchen was a MESS and I just can't go to bed with it looking the way it did. :D DONE! NIGHT!
