What's Been Going On Lately?

Here is a list of recent events in our lives since I last blogged:

Strep Throat
Two Pink Lines
Caffeine Withdrawl
Home Improvement x 3
Vanishing Terrible Threes

First, Arielle came down with her first case of strep throat this month. Fortunately it wasn't as bad as I imagined it would be especially knowing that she might have had an ear infection on top of it. We didn't lose much sleep, if any, and she handled it like a pro. Lucky for us Arielle loves medicine so there were no issues other than a few days of painful swallowing and lack of an appetite. I am happy to report that she has fully recovered.

Second, we found out that we are expecting baby # 2 this October {this actually happened in January but I wanted to wait a few weeks to announce}!

Third, what I thought was a really bad case of morning sickness {lasting all day long} turned out to be symptoms of caffeine withdrawl. Silly me...I stopped drinking coffee cold turkey for a whole week! It wasn't because I am pregnant and worry about the effects that caffeine has on a fetus {because I have done enough research to know that 2 cups a day is harmless}. It was because one morning coffee just didn't taste good to me so I decided I was done with it. Thank goodness a co-worker pointed out to me that I could be experiencing caffeine withdrawl because no more morning sickness!

Fourth, we have done a few home improvement projects this month. One of them I just posted {although I realized that I didn't take any pics of our sink which is far better looking than the toilet}. Aside from the bathroom bead board projects, we also changed Arielle's bedroom up a bit by removing the closet doors, putting her dresser in the closet and placing her bed against the wall. By making these changes we tripled the amount of floor space that she has in her room! I'll post these pics soon too but it too remains totally UN-finished until I decide about hanging curtains or not.

Fifth, I have had the pleasure seeing what life will be like when the terrible three's are no longer a part of it. As Arielle nears her fourth birthday, I have had the pleasure of experiencing the sweeter side of her personality more often than not and let me just say that it. is. wonderful.!

So, that's what has been going on this month! Now I need to start planning Arielle's fourth birthday party. She wants to do a Barbie theme this year.

Oooohhh I hope I wasn't the cause of you letting the cat out of the bag with my last comment. I'm so sorry if that's the case. :( I just happened to see your comment and I can't even remember what blog it was on.

Congratulations and I hope you're feeling well!!!

Glad to hear that things are looking up & that you are feeling better! Are you having coffee again then or some other form of caffeine? :)

You are SO lucky to be exiting the tourtous three's! We are in the thick of early signs of terrible two's. Boy oh boy! Glad you are feeling better with a little help from caffine! :) BTW, Let me know if I can stop by sometime (in the next month or so) I'd love to see what you've done around the casa and maybe steal some ideas! :)

So glad to hear that things settle down as these little girls get older! We are in the Terrible Two's, so I will keep hoping for the sweeter side to come out! And congrats on Baby #2!! What wonderful news!! I hope you are feeling well (or maybe I should hope that you don't feel well, since that's a good sign!)

Thanks for coming to visit me and checking in. We are doing well and I just got a new post up, finally, to say hello. Have a great weekend!
