Why blog?

Sometimes I wonder why I even have a blog. I enjoy posting pictures to it if for nothing else I am at least getting that put together as an online scrapbook and chronicles of our little family, just need to look into how to print it. But for the most part I wonder what the point is as I have hardly any readership, I guess there is usually not much to read as I just post pictures and explainations of the pictures.

I read some of the blogs on my list and am amazed at what some people are comfortable sharing with the rest of the blogging world. I am quit jealous of it actually. For some reason I just don't feel comfortable writing a whole lot of my thoughts, trials, ect. I am not sure if it is because I am scared of judgement, unsure of my writing abilities, or just that fact that I can never think of any thing clever to say.

I think the main thing is that I worry what I will say will be misconstrued or something. Although I have a very mellow appearance I sure as heck have a lot of opinions and views, wonder if I post some of them if people will be offended with me or something. Other days when I would love to vent on my blog I worry that people will think I am just an onry person or that I am more upset about an issue then I really am, I tend to have that happen a lot. I guess my facial expressions tell more then I mean or feel.

Jared reminds me often that I worry way to much what other people think, so maybe this will help me get over it!

Anyway, what I am getting at is I might just start blogging on my blog instead of just posting pictures of my kids (even though that will still be the main thing I do... I love to brag and share!) Please don't take offense or look more into what I am saying. My next class will be creative writing, so hopefully that will help me post more enjoyable interesting bits.

Just a little update

The other day I had the kids help me make a quick halloween craft since again we could not go outside to play. It was pretty difficult cutting out the pieces since Joey insisted on helping with it. Anyway, we cut it out and Joey helped glue it together. It was so fun! The kids are obessessed with it now! Jeanie keeps pointing on the eyes, (her favorite word) "eyyees! eyyess! EYE!" so cute!!

So, I caught Joey drawing on himself with a dry erase marker. For some reason I didn't feel like making a big deal about it and started to help doodle all over him! He had a blast and giggled as I drew on his belly! It was fun and with it being dry erase it came off really easy in the tub. Except he found the same marker later and wanted to do it again. Opps.
We inherited another George and Joey thinks it is pretty cool! When I brought in his Georges to cuddle with he was pretty excited.

It was so funny, the other day Jeanie just laid down at my feet and fell asleep. It wasn't anywhere near her nap time, I guess she just didn't have enough sleep. Silly girl!

Weird little boy

Sick Days!

So these past 2 and a half weeks were a killer! It started out with Jeanie having horrible teething, keeping her up all night crying in pain. After she was over that she had a fever for several days. As soon as Jeanie was feeling all better, Joey went on a crazy cycle of sickness, going from vomiting, to fever, back to vomiting, then to coughing and and sneezing. I actually never made it to the Dr. since each day he began by seeming that he was doing a lot better. I was hesitant to go into the Dr. and have him tell me to just let the fever run its course and just give him Tylenol if he needs it. Since we would have to pay for the full visit because of our deductible. Yesterday he was FINALLY back to his old self. He is not a nice person when he is sick! I guess he gets that from me... I HATE to be sick and express it to everyone! Lol...

This picture is just the cutest! I left for an hour or so to take care of school stuff. This was when Jeanie was feeling sick and nasty, Jared said the only thing that calmed her down while I was gone was to sit with her big brother, who was all to happy to care for her. So cute!
Poor sad sicky... he just hid his face in the couch
The only thing I could get Joey to eat was Jell-O, at least he got some fluid from it.

Such a sad face

See the sad frown!
Well, in other news, the pregnancy is going really well so far! I am so lucky! Another pregnancy with hardly any sickness. This is actually the easiest so far! I actually keep forgetting that I am pregnant. Until I look in the mirror and see how much worse then normal my acne is and my pants are tight! I am SO grateful that I take it so easy... I am not sure how I could care for the little crazy kids and the house and school if I was nauseated and lying on the couch!

I got the first of the big tasks I need to do to prepare the kids for the baby. I weaned Jeanie and it went a lot better then I anticipated. I thought it would be a long drawn out battle with lots of tears and sleepless nights. Luckily I was actually able to do it almost cold turkey. I went the first two days with it totally scaled back to just morning and night. She took that really well that I just cut it all off. She was mad and would ask for it... but she wouldn't fight too hard and would give in to the alternative.

So the next big thing... really really really tackling this potty training thing. We have had it around as an idea for like 7 months now... but have not pushed the issue to much since he keeps resisting, but then he will just surprise us, say he needs to go potty, rip his diaper off himself and go. I have also been waiting for a bit more language and communication from him so we could discuss it more. I know he will talk more when he is ready. He definitely understands everything, just doesn't care to speak a lot. He is picking up a ton though now. He is constantly adding new words and sentences.

We are expecting again!

For those that have not been notified yet, We are expecting another baby! Due April 18th! 

Some cute videos!

I had issues posting these videos so for some reason the only way I could get it to work was posting them each individually!

This first video is of Joey at the park a month or so ago... This kid has no fear! He scares me sometimes what he thinks he can do! This is rather high up for a 2 year old to drop! He did this over and over again! A 7 year old came over to try it and chickend out!

The next video is of Joey dancing to this cute youtube video posted below it. Joey kept trying to mimic thier dances. Before I took the video Jeanie was more into it and Joey was trying to do the floor dances to... it was pretty darn cute!

Fearless Joe

Billy Jean!
