Baby Clothes!

Here is my latest purchase for the Bean, hopefully she will fit into it by spring!!

Baby girl clothes are SO cute, I am so glad I have an excuse to buy them (if not for me, for Katie of course!)
My Indiana shower is next weekend, I can't wait to have everyone in the house!
See you all soon!

Work. . .yea.. . . .

Do I love my job?? Yes. Does it wear me out? Yes. Do I daydream about doing something TOTALLY different? Yes.

On that note, let me tell you that I have very seriously considered changing jobs. Whether that may be home to IL to the ED in the hosptial where I was a baby nurse, or pursuing an education job with more flexible hours and maybe some work from home. . . .I don't know yet.
And maybe it's just becuse I'm pregnant, who knows. I do know that my fuse is A LOT shorter now. . .I just get really frustrated a lot easier. And I want things done NOW. . . .not in an hour, not in fifteen minuets, I want them DONE. . . so part of that is probaby hormones.

My sweet neighbor Carla and I spent the 4 hrs after I got off work in (my) ED with her daughter who had been throwing up all day. . .we gave her some fluids and she felt SO much better! But that made me pretty tired today, and my plan was to shampoo carpets, but Jeremy took the shampooer to work with him in the car(oops!). So I guess I won't to do that today!
Oh well, sitting and resting sounds good. . . .

Baby and Wedding Pictures!

So far these are the only pics we have of the baby. . .and this is the only one I have of Katie's wedding (of all of us). I am 22 weeks in the pic of just me!

Hey Everyone!!

What is up? It is a beautiful Saturday in the Midwest.
I am trying to get this blogging thing going again. Hopefully I will be more successful this time!
My sister and I are both having babies in the spring, me in January and her in February, only 4 weeks apart! It is going to be a wild ride. She has been the sick one where I have felt pretty good.
I am going to start working on the baby's crib bedding this weekend. Hopefully will get all the material cut out and begin to sew it together. Then with whatever I have left, I am going to make some fun stuff. . .like a changing pad cover and burp cloths and other mis baby stuff.
I will post some pics as soon as I get anything done!
Work is starting to get crazy. It has started to be like the winter already (which means really busy with no end in sight). Yesterday all day, we had a full ER and kids in the waiting room. They just kept coming. . .8 hr days are looking pretty good!! We will see how much longer I can go working 12 hour days and not getting to leave the unit for supper! The schedule after the planner that is out now I WILL BE ON MATERNITY LEAVE!! So there is an end in sight, and everyone else (there are 6 of us pregnant people left) is still going strong, so I can just take inspiration from them!
