Me: my- Mommy- my
Lily: (rolls eyes and says louder and with more emphasis): MOM
She doesn't call me Mommy anymore, just Mom. So in retaliation I call her Lil. If she's dropping a Y then so am I.

I need to post pictures, I'll get around to it eventually. James takes all our pictures then edits them on our home computer which is upstairs. I normally NEVER go up there and he's now to the point that he doesn't like to go up there either, if he has to tow both kids with him. We need to figure out a place downstairs for the computer. We haven't even done Max's announcement. We will get that done before we leave for Gulf Shores in 2 weeks. If we even get to go. Stupid Deepwater Horizon had to go and blow up and potentially ruin the only family vacation my family has planned in like 2 decades.
Ok, enough procrastinating. Must.do.homework.

That's 3 weeks and 6 days.
Maxwell James Wear
March 24th 2010
6lbs 10oz 19 inches
Having 2 children had decreased my IQ significantly and I still have about 5 more weeks of school to go this semester and James has another week left of work before his summer break. Once we are back in the swing of things I'll post more. But for now I have a cute baby to cuddle.

This is Lily in the living room after we steam cleaned the carpet. All the furniture is at the other end of the room, but she couldn't wait to watch Sesame Street.
It's 66 degrees and sunny here today. Fabulous spring weather. And I'm at work. I took Tues and Wed off to finish "nesting" but Lily got sick at the same time and couldn't go to school with 102 fever. So we modified our nesting a bit and did some other stuff that still needed to be done. Laundry, baby clothes folding, steam cleaning the living room carpet, paid off my car, returned some items to BRU, doctors appointments (one for me, one for her). Tomorrow its going to be a bit cooler, then Saturday??? I don't think our weather people have any idea what is going to happen. One minute they say rain with a possible snow mix. The next they are saying a lot of accumulation. Whatever. All I know is that I can sit on my tush, watch some b-ball and no one can complain. If it was nice outside I'd feel obligated to take Lily to the park again. Or go to the Zoo. I've got more than one "party" to go to this weekend, and I don't think I can handle going to more than one. So I have to decide. And that's only if James doesn't have a lot of b-ball videos to edit. We shall see.
Update from Doctor: No update! She saw my sonogram results. Said "behave this weekend, I'm going to be out of town". No change in due date, no cervix thinning, not concerned with baby's size. All is good. Which is great, I don't really want this baby coming before April. I've got a very tight maternity leave schedule without a lot of wiggle room.

Labor Signs? Not really
Sleep? None last night. Heartburn so bad I was praying for baby to come sooner rather than later, but DR said I could take Zantac so hopefully that helps.
Best moment this week? Last Sonogram! Saw baby, looks just like Lily. Baby weighs about 6lbs 70z already. More than Lily's birth weight of 6lbs 4.5oz.
Cravings? None really. The heartburn is too bad to care what I eat.
What I miss? sleeping on my tummy
What I am looking forward to? 8 weeks off work and a beach vacation in May
Milestones? Last Sonogram!
Monday, March 1, 2010
Labor Signs? Same old braxton hicks, like clockwork, every night starting at 6pm. Also had some kind of allergic reaction last week, and had a virus that caused a nasty fever blister. The fever blister thing happened with my 1st pregnancy too
Sleep? Getting better, Lily's room is being repainted so she has been sleeping with me, and Daddy sleeps upstairs in the guest room, will be glad when he can come back to bed with me, I don't sleep well when he isn't there
Best moment this week? Got tax return filed, getting a refund, something that hasn't happened in like 5 years
Cravings? Food, just food in general, I lost a pound last week, so I must be trying to catch up
What I miss? Warm Weather
What I am looking forward to? warm weather (see a pattern)
Milestones? pre-registered at hospital
Wednesday, February 17, 2010
Labor Signs? Intense contractions on occasion, especially if I forgot to drink water that day
Sleep? Now that the Olympics are on, I watch until 11 or 12 every night, and then sleep like a baby until 6am
Best moment this week? The Olympics, duh!
Cravings? Brownies, I made homemade ones last night
What I miss? blue jeans that are comfy
What I am looking forward to? birth
Milestones? none that I can think of, its getting pretty boring and predictable at this point

Things left to do:
Wednesday, February 10, 2010
You can get the full recipe here: http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/2010/01/restaurant-style-salsa/
I doubled mine because there are 30 people coming to this potluck and I didn't want to run out. Not that there aren't going to be 4 things of queso (I swear no one was reading my email of who was already signed up to bring what). I also did not use the Jalapeno. I was somewhat timid about cutting one and James ran off to the gym while I was doing this (he's the designated chef around here) so instead I used a can of Rotel w/Habanero's. Its not lacking in the spicy-ness.
Here's the finished product:
There are some benefits to making your own salsa. Cost is not one of them. I spent $10 on ingredients for a double batch, about the same price I would have paid for either a giant bottle of salsa at Costco or a couple of Jars at the grocery store. However, I'm super picky about my salsa. This is how I like it; runny! This is more of the consistency of a restaurant salsa than the super chunky stuff you get in the bottles. Also I can control the spicy-ness, or how much onion is in it *yuck*. Overall I like the taste. I think its missing a little something, maybe I should have put more cilantro? or Lime? Or sugar/salt? I just don't know. But I will probably keep making this and tinkering with it, until I get it just right.
Next up: Olive Oil Cakes with Lemon and Thyme. Sounds yummy.

Best moment this week? My "sprinkle" on Saturday! Good food, great friends a really good time!
Cravings? Cake and cupcakes are good
What I miss? How about what I won't miss. I won't miss having to walk a mile to the bathroom 10 times a day.
What I am looking forward to? Setting up the crib and re-painting the trim in the kid's room (they will be sharing)
Milestones? James finally, finally! got to feel lots of kicks and tumbles this morning.

Funny things Lily has said lately:
She got tangled in her sheets last night: "Darn it, darn it!"
As I was leaving for work yesterday: "Are you wearing a dress momma" Yes I am "I have dresses too momma".
Anytime she doesn't like something we do: "I don't yike that"
We had her going pretty good on the potty training, she would go first thing in the morning and then we had a couple of days where she would tell us that she needed to go, but then something happened between last Thursday and Friday because now she won't sit on the potty chair at all, nor does she want anything to do with the big potty. I'm thinking it had something to do with our terrible weather. We had another snow storm, blizzard if you are inclined, that dumped another 5 inches on top of our already 10 inches, and then we had an arctic blast. So cold that it was colder here than it was in the Arctic. Like -15 with the wind chill. So I worked from home for 2 days and we didn't leave the house. During those two days was when she was going strong on the potty training. Then I went back to work. And she regressed.
