Posted by nattya61 on February 25, 2010

By this time we had found out our little girl was actually a little boy. “Oh crap!” was honestly what came out of my mouth when I found out. Read the rest of this entry »

The Gestation of Nicholas, Part II

Posted by nattya61 on February 25, 2010

The day we found out I was pregnant was the same day we went and saw X-Files: I Want to Believe, July 25, 2008. I always thought that was very fitting. It is definitely a way for me to always remember the day I found out I was pregnant.

16 Hours

Posted by nattya61 on February 17, 2010

Bryan has been working what seems like non-stop because of Valentine’s Day. Tonight will be his 6th day at work in a row. On Sunday, he worked 16 hours straight. His paycheck will be awesome! However, I was a little more than scared for Sunday to get here. I have never spent that long with Nicholas (or with any other baby or child) by myself before. Bryan isn’t called “Mr. Mom” for nothing. Read the rest of this entry »

Love Sickness

Posted by nattya61 on February 12, 2010

Yes, we’re all sick…again…and for Valentine’s Day. Last night we went out for Valentine’s dinner since Bryan has to work A LOT starting tonight and for the next 6 days. We went to Wing Stop and then did a little shopping. I felt ok last night, but I was extra tired. Nicholas was extremely fussy. I assumed he was just starting that phase where we would have to keep telling him, “If you keep yelling, we will just go home!” But, I’m hoping now that his fussiness was because he wasn’t feeling so hot. We all woke up at about 4AM with stuffy noses and sore throats, and I’m dizzy as I type this. Oh, the joy.

Still, Nicholas looked awfully cute in his Valentine’s shirt last night.

Our little heartbreaker.

I feel bad for Bryan since he will have to work so much and be sick at the same time. Though, he will probably feel completely better by Sunday. Me and Nick, on the other hand, will be sick until at least Tuesday. Thank goodness this is a long weekend for me and I have Monday off!

I hope everyone has a great Valentine’s weekend!

Food, Inc.

Posted by nattya61 on February 8, 2010

I like food. It’s no secret. I love to eat. It’s amazing I ever became this way because while growing up, meal time was not fun time. Momma had serious food issues. Read the rest of this entry »

Nicholas Is 10 Months Old!

Posted by nattya61 on February 5, 2010

They really do grow up so fast!

Look at that little man! I can’t believe that he was born 10 months ago. Nicholas can do so many things now. He’s so good at crawling, and hates to be held anymore. He’d rather be on the floor getting into trouble. Such a boy! Mommy loves you, little Nicholas!

Valentine’s Day Is Approaching

Posted by nattya61 on February 1, 2010

A lot of people hate Valentine’s Day. I’ve gone through different phases of hating it versus having it as my favorite holiday. For the past few years at least it’s been one of my favorites. Yes, I know it’s essentially a holiday manufactured by Hallmark, but really, what holiday isn’t? I still love it. Read the rest of this entry »
