This stinks...

Hey peeps...I am here. I am back at work and it SUCKS big time. I hate it...what I hate worse is that when I have a day off (like TODAY), I am just exhausted and feel like I'm not doing what I should. For example, while Elijah was napping this afternoon, I managed to tidy up the house a little. He woke up, ate and got into his clothes for the day. Then, I managed to clean up a little more (yeah, my house is quite the mess right now ) and when Elijah started crying in his swing, I thought "Well, I guess he wants some Mommy time" -- yeah, not quite. He had a massive poopy blowout in his diaper...all over his super-cute clothes. And as I was changing him, and he was smiling up at me from his changing table, I couldn't help but to be really angry at myself. I mean, how messed up is this? I have so many moms that work for me that DON'T want to stay home...they want to be out of the house. Good for them...but I want to be home and I can't...we can't manage th…

2 month check up

Our baby is getting big...too fast . I'm already thinking about having to drop him off at school someday, and then I started thinking about what's going to happen when he gets married! I think maybe I'm having some hormonal fluctuations today......and I'm sure Adam will agree to that. I've been a little cranky, and a bit snippy to him. Sorry Adam!

SO, who wants some baby statistics? Elijah is now 11 lbs, 1 oz and he is 22 inches long with a 39 cm head...all these numbers fall into the 25th percentiles. We had to fill out a developmental questionnaire and he is already exhibiting some of the 5 month old characteristics. Looks like Auntie Caitlin was right...we have super advanced babies! Yay for Elijah and Ki! So Dr. Milonas said he's doing great and looks good...Elijah got a little stubborn and when he was put on his tummy, he wouldn't lift up his head. He does that to me, too. He'll get all ticked off and start crying until I can tell he's angry. A…
Here are a few pics from tonight...

Notice my poor baby is upside down... this one too!

But he's soooooo happy in this one...and SO big!

Yeah, Dad looks kinda drugged but he's not...and look at the good smile from Elijah! He sure loves his Dad!!!!

So here's the scoop on OB isn't real happy with my blood pressure. He thinks it was still too high yesterday (Wednesday) when it was about 140 over 90. He said I needed to see my regular family doc because by now, if it were pregnancy or post-pregnancy related, it would be done. So I saw my GP today...well, he's not the GP I chose but he's the one I'm stuck with. My GP left to move to Illinois or something like that. So Dr. Mathew is the new dude, and he isn't concerned, even tho today I was like 125 over 90. I told him this is WAY high for me but whatever...I'm just that patient, right? So we talked about stuff, like the headaches I have and so forth. So this is the dork's diagnosis...I have…
Yeah, OK...I am so tired of the diaper blowouts that we seem to be experiencing so frequently over here. I think we have just two options: either I'm going to invent some diapers that actually WORK or Elijah is getting potty trained. Hehe...poor little guy can't even completely hold his head up yet! Or stand up...or crawl...or talk...pooh...guess the second one is out of the question right now. And I wouldn't know where to start with the invention...not to mention I'm sure Pampers and Huggies have special spy-type people that would come to my apartment, blow up my clandestine diaper lab and take me into custody for questioning. Then they would brainwash me, and I would probably end up redecorating my house in disposable diapers.

Our stupid apartment building management has really done it this time! First they tell us that we won't be able to use the laundry room for like a week because they're going to put in new tile as part of their plan to "better the ap…
