You know you're pregnant when...

you cry your way through a re-run of the series finale of the original know, Donna and David's wedding.

Not cool. Glad Todd's not home. :)

I know they call it black friday, but this is just ridiculous...

Wow...are day after thanksgiving sales really worth this?!?

Happy Thanksgiving!

* I just got done peeling 8 lbs. of potatoes...I'm thankful I'm done with it! :)

* I just spent a wonderful morning with Hails...I'm thankful for her and her sweet heart!

* Todd is still out playing football with a bunch of his friends and Young Life kids...I'm thankful he gets to be a kid sometimes.

* I might be crazy, but I think I've already felt the butterfly-ish movements of our baby...I'm thankful for this new addition to our family!!!

Spillin' the Beans...

So...many of you have heard, but some have not that we are PREGGERS!!! I've avoided telling the world via the internet until officially out of my first trimester, just in case. We had an early ultrasound at about 7 weeks and were able to see a very strong heartbeat and today heard it for the first time! About 168 beats a minute...Hmmm...what might that mean?? According to the doctor the heartbeat is a correct indication of the sex of the baby about half of the time... :)

We are beyond excited about this new addition to our family on or around June 3rd. I think even Hailey is excited...when asked if she wants a brother or a sister she says she wants a monkey (thanks, Dad) but I think she'll be fine either way.

Well, that's our exciting news! Now I've just got to wait until the first week of January to find out what it is... :)

the sweet conversations between mother and daughter...

We've been teaching Hailey how to obey, so when she is disobedient she sits in time out and says "sorry" when she gets to come out. She's been doing really well. She may not totally understand "sorry", though... :)

Mommy: "Hailey, guess what?"

Hailey: "Wuv you."

Mommy: "You're right! I love you!"

Hailey: "I wuv you too, Mommy!"

Mommy: "Oh, Hailey...that melts mommy's heart!"

Hailey: "Sorry."

Hails, you're too cute for your own good... :)

No Laughing Matter...

We've got a pesky visitor. He started bothering me when we first moved in, but after a few annoying weeks he left. And for some reason he only came around when Todd wasn't home, so my husband thought I was crazy.

Well, he's back...with a vengeance...and Todd believes me now. His favorite time to "peck" away at our house, right outside our bedroom of course, is EARLY in the morning. Seriously Woody?? Find another house.

We thought he was gone when Todd "got him" with his bb gun, but he found his way back. I just read online that if I blast him with the hose, he might leave forever, but every time I go to grab the hose he catches on. Then about 10 minutes later he's back. I think he thinks he's gonna trick me...not so much, Woody!

I've moved the hose close to the door and it's all ready for him to come back. I'll keep you posted on the SHOWDOWN!! :)

How backwards is this???

Tonight I made bow-tie pasta with chicken and broccoli in a garlic sauce. Yummy, by the way...the dinner slump is officially over for now!

However, when Hailey saw the pasta she wouldn't eat it because she thought it was a butterfly.

We then proceeded to tell her, as usual, three bites and then she could be done. Todd had to hide her chicken and pasta in her broccoli!!

This kid is weird, but what else do you expect from the daughter of Todd Yost...the man who will only eat Lucerne brand cream cheese... :)

Big Girl Bed...

We have the kind of crib that turns into a toddler bed, so we finally decided that Hailey was old enough to start sleeping like a big girl. Please note the pillows lining the floor just beside her...she's already rolled out of bed once since I put her down. :)

I'm pretty sure this will wreak havoc on my whole getting to sleep in until 8:30 tomorrow morning, but I guess I'll deal.

In the words of my good friend Jenna, "don't grow up, Hailey"!!!

Update: Other than the one fall out, she did great! She even stayed in bed this morning when she got up until we came and got her! Good job, Hailey... :)

Time Out, Peese??

At dinner tonight while we were all eating our chicken caesar salads, Hailey decided she only wanted bread.

As usual, I said, "Three bites of chicken. Then you can have more bread."

As I put the chicken to her mouth she says, "Time out??"

No, can't choose a time out instead of your chicken.

Oh, the Duggars...

I'm finally getting around to watching my DVR'd proposal of Josh Duggar to his girl...except I have one question...WHY ON EARTH ARE SHE AND HER MOM WEARING MATCHING OUTFITS??? I mean, no offense mom, but not so much into the matching. I'll be honest...I would maybe consider matching with Hailey now, but I would not do that to her when she's past the age of 5...or whenever she considers it "un-cool".

TLC, bravo on your decision to give this family their own reality show...

It's like a trainwreck...I can't stop watching.

fine, you perv...

I just can't do it anymore...sorry more "naughty Betty".


Dinner Slump...

Calling all domestic ladies!?! I'm in a dinner slump!! Please pass along your favorite dinner ideas to us or my husband might leave me for Betty Crocker!! :)

Keep in mind that Todd is a carnivor!! Our dinner always must include some sort of meat.

Thank you in advance for your generosity and help in saving the future of my family...if I try serving tacos again, he really might go insane... :)

(P.S. I googled "Betty Crocker" thinking I might find a nice picture of a housewife serving some dinner...instead I found a very inappropriate picture of a woman wearing some sexy lingerie and an apron. Todd doesn't understand why I don't post this picture. You're so rude, Todd.)
