Oy. Hang in there. I threw up all 9 months with all 4 kiddos. It's the worst. If it's any consolation, they are all healthy kiddos now- born at 40w, 37w, 35w, 36w. Docs always said getting me past 32 weeks was the first big goal, then past 34. You are almost there. Hope you get relief and baby can cook a bit longer!
nemomof2 sorry you're having such a tough time with this sickness! Still sending good thoughts your way and hoping you feel better and that baby stays put a little longer. *hugs* littlelion that's adorable.
Dh and I finally had a chance to go on a date today. We went to go see Fantastic Beasts. Loved it! Lo still has a pretty wicked cough, but it's better than yesterday. He was so miserable yesterday evening. He's pretty happy today.
Got lo's party all planned out today. Decided on a Finding Dory theme since he's obsessed. Dh has photoshop on his work computer so he helped me make the invites. I was showing lo his invitation and his face lit up. He kept saying "Fishy movie!!" Dh and I were cracking up- we asked him what Nemo's name was. Lo couldn't remember, so he told us "Orange Dory." 😂
Had a busy morning. LO had second round of flu shot this morning. Then we walked to the library. Well, I walked while she got towed in her new wagon. Then we went out to lunch with my parents. Now, she's napping but due to wake up soon. DH won't be home until late tonight. One of his friends is in town and they're going out after work. I'm hoping to not eat leftovers again (for the 4th night in a row) and we go out with the IL's. I'm not a big fan of MIL's lasagna, but I feel forced to eat it. (She made me my own pan since I don't eat pork.) It's been a very slow process. Been thinking about themes for LO's birthday. Can't decide between under the sea, barnyard, or fruity two-ty. I need to figure out quick! Ahh!
kcrus I am in the same theme called "2nd kid a hugely pregnant" he's getting a small party with just us and grandparents at MIL house. I will probably get him a peppa pig cake since that is what he is obsessed with right now.
Thanks for all of the good thoughts ladies. I am back home and feeling a lot better. Seems like baby has settled down and wants to stay in the oven. Big goal was to make it to 34 weeks and it seems like I will make that.
Loved seeing everyone's pics and hearing the little stories about Christmas! I can't believe my baby is 2 tomorrow!!! Ah time seriously went so fast! We aren't having his party until next weekend though. And while I thought a lot about themes (Dory was in the top two choices for us too ashlantic) for space reasons we are having it at Chuck E Cheese. I'm kind of bummed but LO loves it there and there will be room and entertainment for the 5 toddlers on mh side of the family. I have big plans to make a Mickey Mouse sports cake but we'll see if I can pull it off!
littlelion that is so cute and I love that pic of your boys! ashlantic lol at "orange Dory." I am endlessly entertained by toddler language hacks--they're always spot on! nemomof2 I'm so glad you're feeling better and that baby is staying put longer. reginaphalange3, happy birthday to your LO!!
My little guy will be 2 a week from Sunday. His party is the day before. We're having a joint party with his best friend (born 1 day apart) and it's a train theme. We're doing it at a restaurant that was built into an old rail station. Should be fun!
The other little boy's mama took care of 99% of the planning because I was super pregnant and now dealing with a newborn the past 2 months, and I'm so grateful to her for that. This baby is killing me this week. It's 4 a.m. and I have slept less than 2.5 hours tonight (non-consecutive). I can't help thinking I'm too old for this shit lol

I'm dealing with a congested baby. He seems ok but gets mad when he gets to snorting or coughing up phlegm. Cried so much this morning. So I'm right there with you dashook. Super tired. Dh is 8 yrs younger but has not stayed up with baby at all. He's pretty useless motn. Sometimes I itch to smack his snoring face.
It's been awesome having dh home from work this week, but I just got a taste of what lo is going to be like when dh goes back to work. Dh left to go get pizza and there is so.much.whining. If I try to play with him lo tells me "No, Dada play." and continues his whine sound.
Got a bunch of errands done today. Dh got me a planner for Xmas and Michael's had all their planner accessories 60% off today. Score! It's so nerdy, but I'm so excited to sit down with it and start using it.

Happy NYE! I've been lurking and LTing, it's just been super crazy. Idk even know if I posted about Christmas? Long story short, we had a great Christmas. Quiet, at home. I cooked a big breakfast and then a big dinner for my ILs but it was so nice not to go anywhere. We're in CO right now and spent the day in breckenridge yesterday. LO hung out at the mountain day care and did great and DH and I had a blast skiing. Doing some casual house hunting/neighborhood scoping today and dreaming of our eventual move up here, and hanging with one of DH's friends from highschool that lives here tonight. No way I'm making it to midnight tonight. That's 1am CST, and that's what my body and my baby are still used to. There will be champagne involved though!
nemomof2 how are you feeling lady? Hope you're on the mend! ourcrazynavylife those turned out cute! Good luck getting everything ready for the party. laceysbryan your ski pictures are making me excited for our ski trip to Colorado! We're not headed there until Feb. though. What did you think of Breckinridge? What did lo think of the tram/gondola? littlelion what did you decide on for a meal?
Our NYE celebration is pretty quiet. Dinner at my parents' and then my friend and her H are coming over to play board games once lo is in bed.
Right now lo is napping and I should probably get my appetizer prepped for dinner tonight. But Harry Potter is on TV and it's kinda hard to get motivated.
