Wordless Wendsday

pretty shiney...ohhhhh

If I was on a desert island and I could only bring two things I would bring a solar powerd water proof satalite phone...and mascara.

i love mascara.

sooo much!

When I was 38 weeks pregnant I was packing my bag for the birthing center. I didn't want to over pack and since I knew I was coming home 6 hours after giving birth...I didn't pack more than a change of clothes deoderant and a hairbrush (for myself)

When my water broke and we started out for the center i forgot to grab my purse...which held my mascara. 4 hours before I deliverd our daughter...I sent david to the get me some mascara.

I know...Im crazy

The hardest part

she is three months old now. I can't belive it has only been three months.

Yesterday someone asked me what is the hardest part. I had to think.

The hardest part for me was the first two weeks. The worry was she breathing?why isn't she making any noise? What is that noise she is making????

I struggled harder than anyone can possiblly have known. Staying up till 7 in the morning because she wouldn't go to sleep. and then waking up at 9 for a feeding. I was exsausted emotional and on edge.

But it got better.

I was lucky enough to get the help I needed and I had D who was the most supportive amazing partner.

So the hardest part of mommyhood..for me...was admiting that i needed help. That i couldn't do it alone. and that the mommy instinct...didn't kick in immedietly

So Im thinking of a change

Nothing major just condencing the two blogs into one. I originally started this blog just to have an outlet. I don't expect people to come over here in droves and I don't feel that because i blog I should make money...Im not that good of a writer and my life isn't that interesting! lol

But two blogs to try and keep up with is two too many (i also write on facebook and myspace)

So I will write my mommy adventures here as well.

Now on to other things.

Im a WINNER! Thats right...3 times baby...3 giveaways!

1st giveaway (adventures of baby kaitlyn blog) legs. Can i tell you just how much I love these! P's legs stay warm and diaper changes are much easier (my child does not like all.

2nd giveaway-(johnson family blog) tommee tippee bottle this bottle. Maybe it's because she is so used to her other bottles...maybe it's because it has the slow flow nipple...but for whatever reason she was less than enthusiastic about this bottle. I do like the shape (so much easier to hold!) and the shape of the nipple is nice. We will see. I will say this though. She is napping and just ate...if she doesn't spit up after her nap (aqs she normally does) I may change my mind and buy a whole set! lol

my next win was from the mommysavesmoney blog. I won her a pair of the cutest mary jane shoes from etsy. I haven't recived them yet but am totally excited to see her in them!

Well folks thats all for now!
