And She's Back...Again...

So I was sitting hear thinking to myself "when are you ever going to go back to your blog and post again". I remember the excitement and proud feeling I got after I wrote and published my first post on here. With that feeling inside I clicked on my "Favorites" tab and selected the link for Curiously Happy. I started reading through the old posts and realized that I actually had a way with words and a gift of sharing pieces of my life with the world.

It is because of that voice in my head and feeling inside that I am going to try REALLY hard to keep up with the blog this time. Even if not one person visits or checks it out, I know that somewhere my life will be documented and memories captured.

Time flies when you're...pregnant??

So some of you may know that Anthony and I are again expecting! We are happily awaiting a son who is due to arrive on July 25th, but will probably arrive July 11th. I am so excited about a July 11th birthday for the number reason of...FREE SLURPEES!!! That's right, if this little one is born on that day he will always receive that nice, cool, sweet treat for free on his birthday.

As of now, everything is going great with this pregnancy. I switched OB doctors to one that is a solo practitioner and she is amazing!! As soon as I met her I knew that she was the ONE. (I know, sounds cheesy) I see her about every two weeks and I see a high risk specialist every three weeks. While I am taking it day by day, it is still a little scary at times. I think it will get easier as time goes on but for now, I am letting the time fly by!

"I'm not a majesty...I'm a princess"

So Olivia never fails to amaze me with some of the things that come out of her mouth. The funny thing is thinking about the fact that most of it started in her brain. While there are times when she says something cute, there are often times she says something sarcastic. No matter what though, it is always funny.

Like, last weekend we were visiting my dad and mom #2. Well she was on the computer planning a card game and I was just watching. Olivia walks in and decides to stand right in front of me. "Umm, Olivia mommy can't see with your head in the way". She starts to whine about how she can't see if she moves and I point her to a spot a few inches over which will make us both happy. Well, instead of moving to where I pointed, she takes about five steps back, tilts her little head, puts one hip out, both hands in the air and with an attitude says "Well, if I stand here then you can see". While it was funny, it was one of her smart comment moments that drives me nuts.

Most recently we were in the car coming from the mall (one of her favorite places to go). One of her favorite songs was on, Ke$ha's "We r who we r". Instead of asking to turn it up, she politely says to Anthony "Daddy, you can turn this up". To which he replies, "Oh thank you your highness". Then Olivia says, "I'm not a highness" and he says "Oh, well thank you your majesty". "Daddy, I am NOT a majesty. I am a princess". This of course causes me and Anthony to laugh because it was too cute.

Those are the moments that I am very happy and thankful to have my little "princess" around to give me a good and much needed laugh.

"Ummmm....is that a new baby in your belly??"

So for those of you that know me, you know that last year I lost my baby boy at 39 weeks. The doctors never could find the reason, but there was lots of speculation. Either way, Anthony and I have managed to wake up each day, smiling and happy, taking each day as it comes. Most would not even know by looking at us the big loss we suffered. And those that do, they are pretty surprised at how well we handle it. But on to the true matter at hand.

For the past few weeks, my lovely and sweet daughter has been making little comments about my weight. To put it in her exact words, "Mommy, you are FAT!!". "Thanks Olivia, that makes mommy feel awesome" is usually the sarcastic response she gets. Of course she has no idea that I am being sarcastic, but I think it makes me feel better.

Well, this past Saturday, I was in the bedroom sitting on the bed when Ms. Olivia comes in to see what I am doing. She stands there with her head kind of cocked to the side and looks at me. Then, all of a sudden she asks me "Mommy, is there a NEW baby in your belly?". Now because of what happened last year and because I do not want to confuse the poor child, I hesitated. But I am probably the worst liar, even to a four year old. So I said "Ummmmm....yes". Olivia then asked if she could kiss it and then went on her merry little way to finish playing.

It really amazed me because I am almost 13 weeks and showing a little. I was surprised that my four year old daughter could already see that I was pregnant. How come when we want them to see their dirty room, or the green beans on the dinner plate, that they all of a sudden do not know what we are talking about.

It goes to show, that kids ARE smarter than we think!!

Where have you been???

Ok, so I am offically calling myself a bab blogger. I sort of diappeared there for a while. Let's just say it was extremely busy around here. With the holidays, work and school...I was just too through. But I have made a resolution to make a post at least once a week if not more. So I guess the question most are wondering is...where have you been???

Not much has changed except I still have a ton of pictures to pull off of my camera. So on top of the late birthday party pictures, I know need to add the late christmas pictures. Those will show up...evenutally! We are still loving and living each day with our funny Olivia.

Busy, Busy, Bee!

I cannot believe that it has been over two weeks since I last posted. But I must say that as usual, life happens and I have been busy. I have been busy with work, school and Ms. Olivia. I got my Associates Degree from University of Phoenix and now I am working on my Bachelors. We had Olivia's Birthday Party too, which I still have to tell you about. We had my nephew's birthday party before that.

We have also been busy trying to get the apartment clean. Now, it is not dirty but more not "perfect". So why am I on this sudden clean kick you may ask? Well it all started on Thanksgiving...

And on that note, since I have not yet posted about Thanksgiving, you will have to wait. I will need to post about that first so that you understand. So I guess I should end this with a...

TO BE CONTINUED...

There's an "I" in Family??

I am pretty sure we have all heard the saying "There is no 'I' in team" but what about the saying "There should not be an 'I' in family" which I totally just made up. I am constantly fighting an internal battle with myself regarding family. Whether it is my family or Anthony's family, there is ALWAYS something. It ranges from someone being mad at us for doing something or someone being mad at us for not doing something.

The thing I have come to learn is that for some reason, there are family members who are more concerned with themselves (that is the I part) than anyone else. It is more about how are they going to benefit from something. There is always and excuse as to why they can not. There are times when people that are not even family get treated more like family than the real family does.

They are those who only call when they want something or want to gossip about something. They are the ones that get made because you have not called them but they do not realize that it works both ways. They are the ones who do not always have time for you but are quick to get made when you spend time with other family who really care.

I learned a couple of months ago I learned a hard lesson. I learned that sometimes you can not even depend on family, not matter how close. So, instead of being like the others and focusing on just the 'I' in family, I will focus on the whole word.

F - Fun
A - Always going to be your family
M - Mistakes are forgiven
I - Invest in time with one another
L - Love and Loyal
Y - Yours whenever you need them

What do you think of when you think of the word family?
