So I did get sick. And Noah and I are butting heads.

I think this awful cold is finally going away. But grrrr. I hate it. Go away faster!

Noah is 14. No. Not really. But he acts like it. Or maybe he's really acting 4, and I'm 14. Can't tell! But it's not fun. He's acting not independent about things like putting his shoes and socks on. I know he can do it! But some socks are harder ..so I cut him some slack. But he's so stubborn. (guess what, so am i) He literally sat and cried/whined for 30 minutes on the patio. He wanted to walk in the grass, but I was weeding and worried about snakes. So flip flops wouldn't be ok. He had to put his tennis shoes on. So he sits on a chair, puts one sock on upside down and completely gives up. 30 minutes. Then he talks back too. Man. maybe I'm just bothered by that stuff more right now, being sick and pregnant. He's a good kid. But I have those moments when I doubt my parenting because of his attitude and behavior. Then he can be so sweet too!

I sewed a cloth diaper. I haven't tested it with water yet. nervous. :) I want to sew things!! I need a big cool machine. I mean.. less that $150.

Cloth Diapers!~!~!~!~

Oh goodness. I sure hope I like them. I've been ordering a couple here and there from ebay, on sale at cd online stores, diapers.com, amazon, etc. I also want to look into making them. Must-walk-to-sewing-machine-and-take-out-of-box. That's my little garage sale find. cheap little machine. The main reason I want to cloth diaper is saving money. Although saving the earth is nice too. And man.. it's a lot of saved landfill space. I just look back at HOW MUCH MONEY and HOW MANY DIAPERS Noah has gone through. Even still.. we do pull ups at night. So it's still going! ah! It takes a big commitment. But I'm staying home.. so I just have to roll up my sleeves and do it. And they are soo cute. so so cute.

This baby girl in my belly is still not named! Cassidy.. Camelia.. something. we'll figure it out. We went camping this past weekend, and I really thought we'd have some baby name talking time. But.. John got SICK. It was literally freezing outside. The camper turned out to be tiny. too tiny. I actually cried the first night. But that's because we couldn't figure out the heater. The campground had no hookups. Yes.. very basic. Just a parking place and fire pit..haha.. so.. The first night we all cuddled together for warmth. And John was coughing all over us. So.. I'm officially getting an itchy throat. I think Noah is too... :( Oh well. John didn't have a fever so hopefully it will just run its course and be gone. He also got a heck of a sty(sp?) in his eye. Sort of a messy weekend! Anyway.. Not much baby name book reading.

I think I have everything I need for the baby. Except a changing table. We had one with Noah but in the years since it got pretty roughed up..and is no longer with us. So I'm hoping to snag one at an upcoming consignment sale. A small one. Since we have just a small space available for it to reside in. I've been having a few braxton hicks contractions. And this is about the time I started having them with Noah. Ah!!!! I'm 25 weeks today!!! wow.. I'm having a baby. crazy.

oh poo i hate getting sick. I've been terribly lucky though. This is the first time my whole pregnancy.
