I’m still here

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted. I have gone back to work and have been busy between work school and the kids. Things are going great I’m glad I’m back at work. I have an opportunity to be in the shoe department full time which is the department I like the best. Not too much else is going on.

I’m looking forward 2 taking Gabriel  to target night this Friday since. admission is only a dollar. Lucas has his 2 month check up on Monday the 18th and will get shots. I also can’t wait until Easter because going to get Lucas dedicated and Kirby is coming to church with me then going to my sisters for Easter with the family and I know my mom will get some great pictures. Hoping to get some good ones of the boys together.


Another week begins

Gabriel loves going to the story time at the library we go every week.
I go back to work next week. I only have 2 shifts but put up note by time clock saying I could take a shift if someone needed me to.
Lucas is doing great. He likes smiling and “talking”  I’m starting a scrapbook.
My retail class is going okay. My project is time consuming looking for information but I’m slowly making progress. Right now I have an 88 in the class.  Sometimes it hard to figure out when assignments are due because professor posted a schedule but than what she has on blackboard where we are supposed to submit assignments the dates are different.

Retail Class, Lucas Doc, Life

Lucas had doctor appointment on Friday and he is up to 11 lbs and 1 ounce so his weight is on track. He is on track developmentally wise, which is great; he is already holding his head up and smiling and doing all types of things. I don’t have to take him back until he is 2 months old for a check up and he will also get some shots than.

My retail marketing class is going okay. I ended up getting a zero on the first test due to internet issues. The discussion questions we have to do for each chapter I feel like I am answering them but then is counting them wrong even though the answer I give is correct it is just I don’t say everything the professor wants I guess. I sent an email out through blackboard and a few other students agreed with me so than the professor say it and said that those of us that feel the grade is not fair to email her specifically with which chapter and question and why we think we should have gotten full credit so I am waiting for an email back from the professor on that one. The group project I started over the weekend and have been in contact with other group member so I feel that the project is off to a good start, we have to come up with a marketing plan for opening a retail store and market/budget for one yr.

I go back to work March 4 which I am excited about because I have missed working and missed working with the people there. Don’t get me wrong I love being home with Lucas and Gabriel and spending time with them. 

My church gave me a baby shower this past Saturday (the 16th) that was lots of fun and my mom got some great pictures which I just finished posting on face book.

I am doing a bible study and we are doing Daniel by Beth Moore; which I am loving. I wasn’t sure if I was going to do bible study or not this time but I am glad that I decided to do it and I can pretty much say I believe I am going to keep on doing them. I love doing the Beth Moore studies.

I am looking forward to going back to work and to Easter. 

Exercise February Calendar

Got this off facebook from a friend. The site name on facebook where this came from it fitnessmomwinecountry; go check it out. So far I have done it each day and really starting to feel it in my legs. I have also been walking when the weather hasn’t been to cold.

Week Over With

I am not too happy with my retail marketing class I went to take the first test last week online and when I opened it the internet timed out and close so I did not get to take it. I emailed the professor and told her what happened she told me to call blackboard tech support they told me that there was nothing that they could do it had to be done by the professor so I emailed the professor back and did not hear back anything from her and ended up with a 0 for the test.
And now there is also a group project which is getting ready to start next week. I am NOT a fan of group project for online classes the last time I had one for my marketing class the people in my group did not communicate and I ended up doing all the work but they still got credit because it was a group project even know the professor know they didn’t do anything. So I am hoping the group project for this class goes better.

Lucas had his doctor’s appointment this morning.  It went well he’s back up to his birth weight but they would still like to see him weigh a little more so I have to go back next Friday for another weight check. I am continuing to breastfeed and supplement with formula. He is healthy and growing on track and is on track developmently.

Another Weekend

Friday spent day with Lucas and picked up Gabriel in afternoon from his dad.

Saturday went to Kolby’s for birthday party; he turned an yr old. My mom got some good pictures and family enjoyed seeing Lucas. Than went to another party. Gabriel had a blast playing with all the kids. Lucas’s cord fell off it still has some of the dye they used around his belly button.

Sunday had good morning at church. I’m taking a break from working in nursery so I can actually go in church and listen to sermon. I’m still during the crafts and heading up nursery but the break is nice. Spent afternoon doing laundry. Than watched Super Bowl; feel asleep after half time and woke up right when it was over.

End of January

Got to love VA weather; snow than 70 degree weather than 50s and rain. Tuesday since it was so nice took Gabriel to playground here at apartment complex; Lucas slept the whole time.

Wednesday morning had Lucas doc appointment which went okay. They wanted him to be back at his birth  weight which he was close but 3 oz off ( he weighs 9lbs 12oz). So they want to make sure he is getting 2oz every 2-3hrs. If I don’t pump enough milk than I supplement with formula. He has to go back in 10 days on the 8th to check weight again than hopefully that will be back on track and than he will not have to go back until he is 2 months old.
After appointment went to my grandma’s because she hadn’t seen Lucas yet. Visited there for a bit than had a evening at home.

Thursday cleaned in morning and painted with Gabriel. Tried to nap when kids did but couldn’t get to sleep. Went to take my test online and the Intetnet froze on me so I emailed professor and told her what happened and she replied back saying to call blackboard tech support and so I did and they said professor has to reset it so now I’m waiting to hear back from professor and hopefully get it straight tomorrow. Hoping that I don’t end up getting an zero on it.
Lucas is very fussy this evening. Gabriel with his dad for the night. Kirby at friend’s house.

Supposed to get a little bit of snow tonight and than again this weekend. I don’t mind the snow but everyone freaks out and goes crazy.

Busy Weekend

Friday morning worked on school work than went to library to type it up and submit it to professor luckily Lucas napped the whole time which worked out perfectly like I planned. My class is going well after the first 2 chapters I have a 96 in the class which the class is retail marketing and organization.

Saturday morning went to my mom’s for a bit. She got some good pictures of Lucas. My grandma got to hold and feed Lucas. In the afternoon went to a birthday party which Gabriel had a blast playing with two other boys that were there who were 5 and 6. Than spent the evening at home Lucas was a little fussy due to having gas but he calmed down about 11:30.

Sunday morning went to church. I decided to go because I want to keep things the same schedule for Gabriel and he loves going to his Sunday school class plus every one wanted to see Lucas and I missed going last week. Spent the afternoon doing things around apartment. In the evening took the kids over to Kirby’s dad house so they could see Lucas.

Doctor and organization

This week got started off rough not getting much sleep. Luckily my mom took off Tuesday and spent the day with me. She help me get things organized in the kitchen and also in the bedroom for when we get the crib. We got a lot done went out for a bit Lucas slept through the whole outing. I got sleep last night because Kirby feed Lucas with what I had pumped before so I got like 6 hrs.
Lucas will not latch on because my breast are engorged but at least I am pumping and he is getting breast milk.
Got birth announcements done thanks to my mom because she helped me get the pics and stamps.
Lucas had his doc apt this morning. Some people amaze me sitting in the waiting a mom tells her toddler who is about two she better get her ass over here and sit or else. Than there was a man in there who was on his cell phone telling half his life story and cussing. I wonder if people even think I mean hello you are in a children’s waiting room.
His doctor’s appointment went okay he now weighs 9 pounds and 3 ounces he is back on track and his next appointment is next Wednesday morning.

Lucas 1st Doc Appt 1-21-13

Lucas did very well. He weighed 9 pounds and 7 ounces when we left the hospital and he now weighs 8 pounds and 13 ounces. He has lost a little more weight than the doctors would like for I have to supplement some feeding with formula . I am not giving up on breast feeding  but have to add formula until his weight is up. Have another appointment Wednesday morning for them to check weight. Other than the weight he is doing very well.
