Hi Mom

Marcus has some pics of Bradie up on his blog- check it out!  You may have to click once on the pictures to see them better.  She's changed since she's been there! Can't believe it.

no boogyman

anywhere to be found, really.  The inspector searched the heights and depths of our little townhome and couldn't find HUGE red flags.  A little updates here and there needed, but no major overhaul or mold or pests. *phew*

I'm so glazed by now I am not sure what happens next???

What do you mean I look like my Daddy?

sweet pepper tortelini is GOOD!

You know it!

Mags taking it to the hole.  You can't see it, but there are several impressed kindergartners.  Hoopfest is magical I tell you.  

Gotta love cry-face.  Feels a bit wrong at the moment, but I'm so glad Marcus took these pictures.   There's more where this came from. I will post them randomly

I just went on a delightful walk.  As I sit and blog, my leg muscles are twitching. This is a miracle since I've mostly felt like passing out after I lay Bradie down at night.  Maybe I can regain some stamina I had at the beginning of June.  

For those who track pregnancies and various fruit, my womb is the size of a medium to large navel orange.  Per the RAD physicians assistant I saw today for my first OB appointment. She was super nice and jovial.  And when your wearing nothing but a cotton poncho-thingy, a sense of humor is a plus.  Next month we should be able to hear a heart beat with the Doppler. Sweet!

Oh, tomorrow is the big inspection of our townhome.  Prayers for that.  Hope you enjoyed the pics- I meant to post these awhile ago but couldn't see the thumbnail pictures so was clueless as to what I was posting.

looking at a condo. doing NAC (nursing assistant) training.  Eating ALL the time as my body climbs internal mountains to nourish an embryo. wearing fat pants already.  chasing Bradie.  Watching Marcus chase Bradie.

literally all I have time for right now, but I was feeling like such a pathetic blogger, I had to.

Adieu for now

for grandmas

please click on link and scroll down a bit to see some quintessential Bradie 

Also enjoy my adorable friends and their equally adorable children.  Feel pity as well, because when this picture of Bradie was taken poolside, I was being fitted for a temporary crown....yuckity!

Oh I almost forgot! Not only did Bradie enjoy the peanut butter pretzel nuggets, she also indulged in some rainier cherries.  Let's just say she over indulged:  I have never in my life seen so much poo come out of such a little was everywhere on her and even a little on the carpet.  After the shock wore off, I think she rather enjoyed the shower at 6:30 am via the rubbermaid pitcher! :)  I don't think  she enjoyed the next two hours of laundering, scrubbing the tub and spot cleaning the carpet.

I am usually the careful sort that strives to learn and then live...motherhood has taught me that this is impossible to achieve always.  Messy inconveniences are so effective, burning themselves into memory forever.  And maybe carpet as well.

jonesing, officially. We happened upon the Harry Potter movie series a couple of months ago, and thanks to Jody and Dave, just finished films three and four....THEY ROCK!!  Seriously, I never thought I would say it, but I am STOKED to see Order of the Phoenix.   Marcus and I have spent some time finagling on how we can come up with the dough to pay a sitter and see the movie.  Lengths may stretch to the pawning of select household items.  No, thanks to my dad, we are getting some retropay for past birthdays and such.  Is my dad now an enabler, feeding the fiendish desire to see young teens perform magic and save the day?  Maybe.  But now we will just call him our hero.

Still figuring out which pics are which on our little Mac. I got REAL sick on the 4th and have been taking it slow since then. I did get to enjoy some fireworks with hubby and B-Rad. I also managed a slice of Pizza Hut by the time it got dark out.

Here's some photos. This is Maggie and Bradie...and I think the other one's of Bradie too right? Can't see it as I type its all gobblygook right now.

Lamest post ever except for the pictures. And happy of all joys, we have new neighbors moving it right as we speak. At 8pm, with I am guessing, a boisterous 8 or 9 year old. Another kiddo to add to the Lord of the Flies thing we have going on at times right in front of our apartment. Man. we need a new place.

Okay, peace out.

*deleted second pic of Bradie as the orientation was wrong.
