Well, I know that many would think that I did not do too much today, but I cleaned the bathroom downstairs, washed some of Arwen's gDiaper liners and outers, did a little school work, got the candy all ready for Trick/Treaters, put all my cardstock away in its new place in my scraproom, unloaded my travel tote that is for crops, cleaned off my scrap table and put away a few albums after putting them back together.

This is all on top of taking care of the girls. They are both sick now, and Arwen went from having fevers from 102-105.5 for 7 days and not eating for 6 of them to now just having a simple runny nose. Tori is also having the runny nose, cough and sounds really funny when she talks.

I have also started making a list of layouts I want to do for Lexi's album and what I want to have in it. I figured it would be less scatter-brained if I sat down and wrote out a list of LO's to do with what pictures first so that they are all attached in my albums right. I say this becasue I use the strap hinges from Creative Memories, and once the LO is attached to the main page, you can't change it. I have got 4 LO's written down that I will do with ultrasound pictures, pictures of my belly, ultrasound picture saying it's a girl, and one at the start about me finding out I was pregnant again.

Greg said today that he would be home early so that we can get the house ready for the treaters, get the girls ready and then also carve the pumpkins. They have been rotting fast when carved too early, so we wanted to wait until today to do it. I can't wait to do up the seeds for tonight to munch on. I LOVE pumpkin seeds better than anything else, even chocolate!!

my birth annoucments for Lexi

I saw this card on SCS and thought I would try it for a mock up for Lexi's birth annoucments. I loved it so much that I have decided that this is what I will make. I am going to start actually working on them soon so that I do not have to worry about the holidays, school starting soon again and then getting down to the wire and not having them done.

This is the inside tag that opens up so that I can have plenty of room to put a picture of Lexi like I have done with my other girls and also fit all the birth information.

Products used:

Card Stock:Pretty in Pink, Chocolate Chip & Very Vanilla

Ink:Chocolate CHip, Pretty in Pink, Close to Cocoa & Black StazOn

Misc. Items: Sponges, Brad, Grosgrain Ribbon & Prismacolor pencils

I talked to my doctor and he said that the UTI is a big factor in causeing contractions due to the infection in the bladder. I was put on meds to clear that up and he gave me something different than the first time. This is supose to work and I needed to take in more water.

I am feeling much better and will watch it for a bit until the meds are starting to work more.

I have been having issues since Saturday evening. I started having irruglar contractions after walking around Target for almost 2 hourse doing my baby registry and then shopping with friends. After that I was in some pain from just pains all the way home which is a 2 hour drive. I then Sunday while at HEB buying a few things for the kitchen and house I strted having contractions again.

I am worried since I am only 20w5d and the baby would not survive if born right now. I called the doc office today and they said that I would get a call back. I think it might be a result of me still having a UTI and that can cause preterm labor, so I need that checked and taken care of if that is the case.

Getting ready for Lexi's birth

I am now finally registered at Terget and babiesrus for my up coming baby shower that Jennifer is giving me. Since base houseing is small, it will be held at my house off base November 3rd @ 2pm. I got to make sure the house is unpacked and lookig good by then.

I have decided to use the same bedding set that I used for Arwen and now I have picked out the room colors from the bedding set. I will be apinting wide stripes on the lower half of the wall with a light green and purple and then the upper half will stay the light cream that the room is now or I will do a light pink.

I had to register for clothing since I sold all my girl outfits from the size 0 - 9 months almost a year ago, yea I know STUPID me!! I also had to register for a new car seat becasue I did the same thing as with the clothing thinking that I would not need it for a long while, Yep I know again STUPID me.

Greg is not stressing about getting things ready since it is only just October and I am not due until February, but I just have that feeling like I will not make it to my due date since Tori was born on her due date and Arwen tried to come at 30 weeks and then finally came 3 1/2 weeks early, he says we have plenty of time, but I want to be ready before she comes.

All I know is if he waits too long to let me get things ready in Lexi's room, then I might have to take charge and do it all myself without his help!!

We have now Moved!!!

We are now off base and in our new house in town. The house looks like it threw up on its self with boxes every where, but we are at aleast moved in. There are a lot of things that need to be done, like fix the shower in the down stairs bathroom and paint, but that is about it.

My scraproom is going to be the first room unpacked and fixed and then the kitchen. We all know that scrapbooking take over the kitchen stuff!!!

I am so glad to have it done for now, my hubby Greg had to do all the moving without my help since I can't really lift a lot, but he did get some help from a friend of ours that lived down the street from us on base. I felt so sorry for him since all the stuff that we own is VERY LARGE antiques that weigh a TON!!
