High and Low

Here are the Highs and Lows for the week,...

High: Grant had an interview for an internship and it went GREAT!!! Fingers crossed!!!!!!
Low: If he gets it he won't graduate until next April. I guess it's really not that big of a low, we still go to law school at the same time, and I get a hubby with a 9 to 5 for five glorious months. Okay it's closer to four, but I like the glass half full.

High: Maggie is saying Mama, Papa, Baba, Dada(old news) and walking. For reals walking everywhere.
Low: The stuffy nose from H E double hockey sticks has decided to stick around for week two, so still no sleep. She also has learned that standing on her tippy toes, clenching her butt cheeks, and screaming is a real quick way to get what she wants. She's the second child, so she's street smart, she's already learned to pull hair to get her way, and then cries and wants to cuddle when Sienna gets mad.

High: Sienna told me that she is never going to get married and grow up and she is going to live with me in this apartment forever and ever!!!
Low: We have to live in this Apartment for forever and ever!!! Maybe we can knock through a wall or something,...

High: I kept the house spic and span for a week, my laundry is even done. I patted myself on the back last night.
Low: I woke up to "Mom I wet the bed!" this morning and quickly realized she was in MY bed. Then Maggie fought me and won and rolled out of a diaper while I was changing her, and squatted and peed on the floor. Then I put both girls in the bath and Maggie pooped. I took them out of the bath and she peed on the bath mat. My laundry and house work is no longer done.

High: I made bread three times this week! The kids and hubby beg for it, and I obliged.
Low: I'm pretty sure I consumed my weight in bread this week. NOT Weight Watcher's Approved.

High: I caught up with a bunch of friends from back home today.
Low: My throat hurts from laughing and talking so much!!!

High: I was constantly reminded of how blessed I am to have such a hard working hubby this week.
Low: It's midnight and he's still not home.:(

And the last one is a little long

High: I got to sleep in this weekend because my wonderful hubby got up with the kiddos. It was a rough week of no sleep and Grant had some major stuff he needed to be well rested for, so I got up with the baby most of the week, i.e. why I was so tired and needed a couple of min of extra shut eye.

Low: I couldn't sleep after Sienna came in the room looking for a toy, and I got up before Grant expected me, and I found the living room covered in cereal. Tons of it. I asked what happened and Grant said that Mags just spilled it. To which Sienna promptly said" Nu uh, that's how daddy feeds Maggie. He does it all the time." Now I know why the girl puts everything she finds on the floor in her mouth. It might actually be food. He gave a sheepish grin and said," I usually have it cleaned up before you wake up." You can't get away with anything in this house! I have super spy Sienna!(that's def a high)

High and Low

My awesome friend Ailinh started a new High and Low thingy where you post the highs and lows of the week, so I decided to give it a try! You all should too,...

High: Shopping with my sis in law, and getting a great deal on some clothes!
Low: realizing that I gained back all the weight I lost, back to dieting,...

High: Grant coming home early one night and getting to go to the store with him.(this almost never happens on a week night)
Low: Sienna's total melt down because we wouldn't let her get Subway at Walmart. Sorry poor greeter that had to listen to the screams while Grant got the car.

High: Working out everyday this week! Man it feels good, and makes me a lot more patient with the kiddos!!!
Low: I can barely move my legs.

High: Maggie falls more in love with her daddy everyday!
Low: I no longer cut it. If she wants daddy, she'll scream until he comes home. No bueno.

High: Sienna is becoming very conscience of what is healthy and what's not.
Low: Sienna commenting on how large a woman was and telling me in a very loud voice that she must not eat very many healthy things. I wanted to crawl under a rock.

High: Doing this blog.
Low: Not knowing how to link it up. Help Ailinh!!!

Our Valentines

This year we celebrated a little early, and Grant, Sienna and I went out the Saturday before Valentines. My brother and his wife watched Maggie for us, and we three went out for dinner and a movie. We saw the new Narnia movie, and ate at Sammy's. Sooooo delish, I want to go back right now! Definitely the best food Rexburg has to offer! For my present, Grant let me go out with my sis in law earlier that day for some shopping, and the best find of the day was a pair of Gap shorts for 47 cents! Grant got a Barnes and Noble gift card, Sienna got the book Amelia Bedelia. Maggie enjoyed eating chocolate, and her Aunt and Uncle got her a cute little outfit.  It was a fun night.:)

On Monday I let the girls stay up late and wait for Grant to get home and we did a special family home evening and ate a heart shaped pizza and a heart shaped cookie. Then it was off to bed, and time for mommy and daddy cuddle time on the couch watching tv. I must say that holidays are so much fun now because Sienna understands what's going on. All last week she told everyone about the date we were going to go on for Valentines. It was really sweet. I'm savoring it now, because 10 years from now she'll laugh at the idea of going on a "date" with mom and dad.

Sad Days

There is no easy way to say it, but we miscarried last weekend. It has been really tough. We were hoping that my body had figured out how to carry a baby after Maggie, but we were wrong. I have kind of stayed in and not talked to anyone for a while, and I'm just coming out of the depression stage. I don't know why we have lost another little one, but this brings the number to five. I just keep looking at my two beautiful girls and remind myself what miracles they truly are. We are blessed to have them.  We are concentrating on that, and trying to move forward now. Thank you for all your love, prayers, and support!
