Pregnant Pumpkin

I am done. Fully cooked. Finished. Tired of the pressure on my pubic bone. Tired of even thinking about standing up. Being 31 weeks pregnant is really sucking all of the life out of me. Or maybe it's being pregnant, working full time, finishing school, and raising an energetic toddler. Who knows? All I want to do is sit down with my feet up. And sob.
Instead, I'll sit down with my feet up and vomit my feelings into this blog. And be really happy that my husband is cleaning up the dining room, where we carved a pumpkin tonight.
I'm looking forward to Halloween tomorrow. I figure that trick or treating will go one of two ways: 1) M will refuse to go to anyone's house and we will drag a crying baby to a few of our neighbours... or 2) M will love trick or treating so much we will end up being out for hours. My pregnancy cravings hope for option 2, the glucose that shows up periodically in my urine hopes for option 1. We will see what happens tomorrow.
All right, the laundry is calling, but I am not listening. I think I'll turn in for an early sleep tonight and hope that work isn't too bad tomorrow. Should I wear my costume to work, do you think??
One good thing about pregnancy - cheap n easy costume!!

Cute Things my Toddler Says

Muriel is sporting vintage Vuarnet shades.

I thought I should document this stuff now, before I forget just how adorable she was!

She asks to have more "sauce" on her toothbrush.

She often gets on her toy horse and says "Bye Guys". When we ask her where she's going she answers "To buy Yayas" (her word for raisins).

Her stuffed rabbit is named "Hose".

Her other stuffed rabbit is named "Hosa".  You face her wrath if you mix them up.

If she hears something strange she says "What's that noise?" Then she'll answer herself, "Raccoons".

If you ask her how much anything costs she'll tell you "Two dollars!"

Usually if you ask her what she wants for dinner she will answer "Pasta and chicken". The other day at daycare she wanted "Cheerios and milk". When I told her that she couldn't have cheerios, she decided she wanted "Beef". So we went to the butcher.

She loves her Grandad so much that she screams his name whenever we video chat with Grandma. Then when he comes on, she becomes a silly goose and does all kinds of crazy dancing and making horse noises.

She demands to watch show tunes on my computer. And cries if denied. Her favourite is "Who am I" from Les Miz.

She likes big trucks and machinery, especially backhoes. She calls them "backhomes". Grandad has one, and when he brought it out for her she was absolutely terrified of it. I guess she only likes them from a distance.

I will add more as I think of them. What adorable things does your child say?

Haven't blogged in a while... time for an update!

Well, I haven't been here for a while. I blame:
1)swollen feet
2)extreme exhaustion
3)rampant toddler
4)40 pound weight gain
5)being very, very hangry

Sound familiar? Yes, yes I'm pregnant. 7 months down, 2 to go.

Can I do it? Only time will tell.

I'll try to be more on top of things around here, too.

As for cloth diapering, little M is potty trained! Hurrah!
