Ode to a sick mama/baby

     Me and baby Lisey are Sick!

This being my first time dealing with

Sceamy Adalise + Exhausted Mama


                  Waaaaay too many dirty bottles and fussy baby who 

constantly clinges to a mama or a blankie 

or sometimes even a burp cloth.....


               { very thankful for overhead fans and messy buns}

I REALLY should save myself and use less formula as you can see she isn't much of a "finisher"

I am feeling VERY blessed to have a mother who see's the NATURAL side of life and has given me the knowledge to help a sad sick baby in ways besides shoving her full of medicine....

 Doterra Essential HERO! Plus for once the oils smell delicious, a certain "young living" really should pick up on the fact that their lavender stinks like poo...

This is by far my favorite oil, she gets this on her toes morning and night and sometimes in between! It has the same affect that vicks does without all the chemicals plus vicks is hard on a babies respiratory system

I also have learned this little beauty is a god send when she gets uber fussy from her runny nose..

I must also admit once she is calm I dab a little on it works :)

My brilliant mother has a million and one ways to use all the oils doterra has to offer including helping her overcome breast cancer! This totally isn't an add just wanted to thank my mother for being brave enough to think outside the box and help me help my own little family :)

(but if you are interested in getting doterra let me or my mama know, she is a distributor)

On another note I haven downloaded Blogger on my **NEW** phone

(after borrowing a MILLION old ones, thanks mama!)

So its officially time to START blogging cause come on lets face it 2 blogs in 2 years...PATHETIC!

..And then she wrote a post..

Wow... a whole year went by, obviously blogging isn't a strong suit of mine but I am learning that in this MAJOR transition not everything I need to say is appropriate in the form of a facebook post... so here goes nothing...!

As I'm sure anyone who reads this blog knows I am pregnant, a pregnancy I hoped and dreamed for, and to be pregnant with my first just feels so beautiful. So I have found myself wondering a lot lately, why am I not happier? why don't I have that glow that most pregnant woman have? how selfish am I for complaining about a blessing that a lot of woman will never get the opportunity to have? Now I know these are all "normal" emotions a pregnant woman goes through, but I still can't help but feel I need to be better. I haven't had the opportunity to speak with many pregnant woman which I guess is my own dang fault but I can't help wondering if I am alone in this??? Am I the only person to count down the weeks until she can GET OUT OF MY BODY! (in the most loving ways possible of course). I guess you could call this post a rant, I'd prefer to call it a release... I'd like to meet another pregnant woman who doesn't slather me with her warm and fuzzies about being pregnant and tells me she hasn't slept in months... because YA'LL... I  HAVENT!!! So here goes the things I wish I could scream but will instead write down, for all 2 people who havent given up hope on me returning the blogging...

- This little girl inside of me is full of spunk and LEGS! yes my daughter will be just as tall if not taller then me poor thing...and inside my body those legs are not happy..I can tell they don't fit like she wants them too anymore and poor thing is stuck trying to figure out how to stay in the breech position with all those legs which leads me to my least favorite pregnant experience..
- I refer to this as my dead rib...the left one has been numb since month 6, ALL her ultrasounds show her in the same position, head IN MY RIB, ouch!
- Has anyone had pregnancy insomnia? As a girl who loves to sleep I think this is just CRUEL!! And if one more person tells me too "sleep while I can"...but then there are the nights I do get a few hours of sleep, they are full of dreams...zombie babies...dead babies...babies ripping out of my body...puppy babies...occasionally I get the old "attacked by an escaped bear" dream...which i never thought would be a relief, but it is..
-And lastly the reason I felt the need to post a rant today...good ole Working while pregnant... I figured I would hate it more then normal ( I HATE my job if anyone was wondering) but what I didn't expect was that I was going to lose my brain...literally its mush...mushy mush full of confusing stares and disciplinary action from my boss who apparently doesn't remember what its like working while being 8 months pregnant... I have worked there 2 years with a perfect record but now that I am 9 weeks from having a child I am in all the time?? something seems fishy here...

Anyways now I must remind you all that this pregnancy is beautiful to me, I do see the goodness, I see the gift that I am able to create life and start a family with my sweet husband....I truly know little girl is meant to be in our family and I will forever cherish this experience, fortuantley they say you forget all the torture and want another one all over again... I do admit to forgetting about my first and second trimester of morning sickness from time to time so I have faith that this too shall pass...all too quickly I am sure....

At Last....

So for all of you that know me... I hated blogs. Blogs are what old married women do because they are bored... Well I'm eating my own words because for the last month or two I have become ADDICTED! I spend my saturday's at work reading both family and friends personal struggles and adventures and then find myself reading complete strangers blogs full of advice and creativity... its pretty amazing! So yes I have been inspired to BLOG!! Go ahead younger version of me, I am old and married and can't wait to start blogging about shopping for my new house, adventures living in "Egypt" (that is what my friend calls Eagle Mtn). I'm excited to see who enjoys the same things I enjoy. My co worker gave me a great idea to do a weekly Esthetician Advice since I do have such a wealth of knowledge when it comes to proper pimple popping and other fun skin care stuff.

So in the spirit of this great advice I am officially making SUNDAY my skin care day.... get excited!!
