Ohhhhh Rog...

Yes, we are THOSE people
and broke down last night and got the infamous Intelligender test.
It was kind of fun but smelled bad.
The Results:
We shall see!
(My mom said we could have saved our money
paid HER the $30.00 and she would've told us the same thing.)
ohhh Mom!
What does Lidia say when people ask her
how she will handle not being
the center of attention when Rog comes????
She laughs...
That's my girl!
.... and a cute pic of her standing against the couch! My big girl!

WOW! You guys are... special! So I was going to delete the Q&A post, BUT since you guys were so amazing with your questions, I thought I'd share my thoughts with you so here goes...

Was this baby planned? HECK NO! (Sorry Roger, I love you, but no.) But God has a plan for everything and I will love this baby will all my heart!
Any names picked out? Another HECK NO! Seriously, why is the name choosing the most difficult part for me? We can't agree on anything! So this is TBD... stay tuned! :)
How many kids do you want? Almost positive we are done but this is another TBD. Give me 5 years and see where we stand.
Whats your dream house?
JK JK JK! It's actually a little more like this.... I am IN LOVE with older houses, especially the ones with wrap around porches where I can watch my little ones play in the front yard and sip on some Iced Tea and talk about the weather with my honey. HAHA who am I kidding??? You'll never catch me talking about the weather! Give me a little US Weekly and I'm good!
Favorite family tradition? I love our family Christmas. We go to Christmas Eve Service, then back to my parents to stay the night (all us girls in the same room of course), open our annual ornaments that night, then wake up about 6am for stockings and presents, make a huge breakfast, play games all day, and eat Subway sandwiches. It's the best!
Fav beverage? Iced Tea

I would like to know why there aren't any videos on the blog like you use to have? There are no videos because I lost the charger to my camera. Scratch that. It's probably somewhere in the mess that we call the "pantry" since that's our "storage area" these days. So the pictures you've seen lately are from my phone... sad but true. If anyone can tell me how to send pictures to an email address from a Blackberry feel free! I'd appreciate it!
How do you handle: a 7 month old that doesn't sleep, work, cooking, a bf that works a lot and snores, hanging out with your friends, spending quality time with your family, making sure that everybody that wants to see lidia can, blogging, all while being pregnant?
Again, JK JK JK! It's all apart of being a mommy! You wouldn't understand MATTHEW. I know that was you but thanks for the get it girrrrrrl! I swear I don't have a man that swings the other way... even though him and Lidia are obsessed with dancing to Justin Timberlake...

How do you handle being so f'n sexual!?
"I wake up in the morning feeling like P. Diddy. Grab my glasses, I'm out the door. I'm gonna hit the city." (Self-explanatory)

How do you handle the fact your child will have a mole? "The Mole" told me his was actually glued on so we're good to go!
How do you plan on keeping your sanity?
This man right here....
My Ladies...... and her smile!
How often do I get to babysit? Isn't it obvious? You don't get to babysit now... WONDER WHY!?! When does Lidia get a cell phone? Yesterday.
Are we positive we are naming peanut Roger? YES
Can you manage parenting two children if I hide your specs? I have four other senses! My blind neighbors seem to handle it quite well. I may fall down the stairs a little more often than I do now though...
Last but not least...... when is the next one?!?! In your belly

The next one?! Maybe the next one should be in the Miller house;) I agree completely! Get on it!
When are you moving? We aren't moving quite yet :( Hopefully before bebe comes!
When do I get to see your beautiful face again? Call me ASAP!
Is it ok I start spoiling the kids a little too much? Yes please!
ps...LOVE YOU ALL!!! We love you too!

Who is the prettiest person you know who is your cousin and is named Jess? Jessi CAROSE Owens... She's pretty rad.
Alot of pressure because you said I would post so I guess I will, HA! Will you ever find your battery charger for your camera so we can get so videos of that precious little granddaughter of mine. You are an amazing Mom and I am so very proud of who you are!
I'll deep clean tonight just for you Momma Lu! And thanks! I learned from the best!

"So what? I'm still a rock star.
I got my rock moves, And I don't need you.
And guess what? I'm havin more fun,
And now that were done, I'm gonna show you tonight.
I'm alright. I'm just fine. And you're a tool...
So, So what. I am a rock star.
I got my rock moves, And I don't want you tonight."

"Unn Uhh Check my flow Ohhh" (my fav part)

I LOVED this song when it first came out! It came out when I was working at Citi and reminds me of when I'd take a spinning class on my lunch break. When this song played, it pumped me up for my workout, despite my constant battle with myself to keep going. (I'm no work-out nut if you know me.) Has anyone ever taken a spin class before? Some of those 50 year old ladies are die-hards and totally showed me up. But not when this song came on! It was like I was running a marathon baby! Soooooo earlier today, I had been having a horrible day at work (ranting and raving about wanting to quit blah blah poor me) and then what do you know? THIS song came on and I sat my pretty little head back and started fist pumping it! I AM a rockstar and noone can bring me down! I've got my little princess to make me smile at any second of the day, my fabulous man to listen to my sob work stories, and my rock moves to get me through it all! And I owe it all to Pink's manhater song.... Who woulda thought???
and how could I forget my rockstar friends????

I have seen this on tons of other blogs and thought it would be neat to do! I've been thinking about doing this for awhile now, but I'm not sure if anyone will respond. Actually I'm pretty sure noone other than my mom will respond since I don't have many readers BUT I'm going to give it a whirl! And if my mom doesn't even respond, I'm DEFINITELY going to be erasing this post altogether but let's see how it goes! Ask me anything in the comments section of this post and I will answer in another post! If you leave me love, I will do the same! I love checking out new blogs... It's my new addiction so don't be shy... Now... GO!

Oh Mother, Where Art Thou??

Do you ever have those mornings? Those mornings where you wish your little one would sleep in so you could get ready for the day in peace? Then, you have those mornings, and you wish they would have been up so you could spend time with them before heading to work, right? It's a vicious cycle I tell ya. But lucky for me (lucky is in the eye of the beholder here) I never have this "vicious cycle" anymore and princess is always up and at 'em with me in the mornings! Some days it's fun and she will play on the floor next to me and I will dance and sing "Tick Tock" to her. (and Matt wonders why the bathroom door is shut while I get ready) Other mornings... aka TODAY... she will cry until I hold her or give her my full attention. ::Sigh:: I try to be at work at 8am Tuesday - Friday BUT I find myself leaving the house at 8am now. No, this isn't because I'm getting up later, it's due to one little girl and her obsession with her momma. Not to name names or anything....
Now onto our fabulous weekend...
Friday: We spent the evening at home, as usual.
We played cowgirl, laughed on the floor, and ate pizza.
Then Lidia zonked out for the night (notice she's now sleeping on her back! woo hoo!) and Momma had an evening to herself to watch a movie.
We went to G'ma and G'pa Schneiter's house.
Lidia played in the snow for the first time with Gpa! He always says he's going to take her out sledding and to play outside, so what'd I do when he was out shoveling??? I bundled her up and let them go at it!
Then, Mommy, Steph, Aunt Chloe, and one of her friends snuck away to a movie while Lidia was napping. I'm slowly becoming obsessed with the Twilight series and had to see the movie. Then, we got home and it was time for G'ma and G'pa date night!!! Matt and I gave them a gift certificate to stay in a hotel and dinner at Biaggi's for Christmas and they used it this weekend! Lidia and I handled the fort while they were away and stayed with Aunt Chloe. We ate pizza (for the second night in a row, I guess Roger like pizza) and played Rock Band. We had a great time! Lidia slept really well at their house and so did I! I think it's time for me to invest in a King Size bed.... hmmm...
Saying goodbye before their date!
Aren't they so cute??? They don't look old enough to be grandparents!
I woke up to the best news EVER! We were getting ready for church and Sarah's mom called to tell me that Sarah was at the hospital in labor! Her mom said I had plenty of time since they had just broke her water and was only dialated to a 4. Her husband had even headed home to let the dogs out and pick up a few things. So I took my time and headed there an hour later. On my way, I got another call from her mom saying she dilated from a 4 to a 10 in a half hour and was already pushing! WOW was all I could think and I rushed to get there. I arrived at about 5 minutes to 10am and stood outside listening to the delivery. At 10:05am her mom and I heard the sweet sound of a baby cry!
Sunday, February 21st, 2010 @ 10:05am
I love you so much Collin! I hope you enjoy this crazy, tragic, sometimes almost magic, awful, beautful life!
I stayed at the hospital for an hour or so and talked to Sarah about her birthing experience. It brought back old memories and made me miss little munchkin so her and Matt came up to visit the new addition to our world also! We stayed for a bit but then we headed to Newton to see our family. We spent the afternoon hanging out with Jessie's kids, Aunts and Uncles, and helped Chloe make things out of clay! It was a successful, fun-filled day and weekend!

Heartbeats and Holidays

Happy Valentines Day everyone! I hope you spent it with those you love and got spoiled :) The weekend started out rough, finding out princess has another double ear infection. This means tubes which is probably for the best but Thursday and Friday were pretty rough days. Friday was my birthday and we spent it with family. Saturday, was a mommy pampering day! It was needed badly! My three ladies took me for a pedicure, shopping, and dinner for my birthday. I was glad to have the night free but missed Lidia terribly! Sunday was Valentine's day and we had a fun time over at G'ma and G'pa Schneiter's house; playing Rock Band with Aunt Chloe, making dinner, and watching the new Amazing Race. Who loved Jeff and Jordan from Big Brother last season??? They are on the Amazing Race... so excited! Go J&J! Monday, mommy/baby day, was pretty lazy except going to the doctor for little Roger. It was just my normal four week check-up and I was able to hear the hearbeat which was 152! My next appt is on March 15th and is the next ultrasound! I can't wait to see his/her little peanut body!
Dressed to impress in my pretty Valentine's Day dress!
Just kickin' back in my carseat, ready to check up on Roger!
"Mommy! You're so silly! Stop tickling me!"
Who says ear infections keep me down??? Look! I'm the happiest baby ever!
... and again...

The centerpiece for mom's bday celebration... of course...
Ummm yeah... G'pa fed me ice cream... naughty naughty!
I can even crawl UNDER my exersaucer.
Who needs to buy toys anymore when you can make them??? Pop bottle and rice? Works for me!

Happy V'day G'ma and Aunt Chloe!
Love you!
But I love my momma more!
