Good News, Bad News

Good news:
Zachariah is following a sleeping schedule at last! (which means I am following a sleeping schedule also!)

Bad news:
Its from 11:00pm-10:30am - with 2 feedings in there somewhere. (which means I don't wake up for the day until 10:30 also!)

I need him to start going to sleep at 8 or 9:00pm and waking up at 8am. I cant get anything done around here when I am laying in the bed until 10:30.

This is going to be fun.

Zac was sitting in his bumbo on the computer desk when he decided to projectile puke.
Its all over the floor, bumbo, desk... me.


Excuse me while I go shower.

Freakin Adorable

I just cant get over how cute he is!

Bad Mommy?

I let my (almost) 12 week old son watch his first movie today. At first putting my child directly in front of the TV, with the hope that he would be entertained by Shrek 2, made me feel a little guilty. But then getting a shower and being able to shave one of my legs was pretty gratifying.
Now I need to find another movie he will watch so that I can shave the other leg.

Taking after Pops

Zachariah is balding. I know its "normal" for babies to loose hair on the back of their heads. It makes sense. All they do is lay around all day. But I am not liking this bald spot. He has the most beautiful hair all around it... and I don't want it to go away!

Complete head control cannot come soon enough.

My little man

This week Zac will be 3 months old. We went to the Dr. last week and he weighs 13 pounds 10 ounces and he is 23 and 1/4 inches long. He is getting so big! Although we haven't completely mastered the head control yet, he is sitting in his Bumbo on his own pretty well! He has also started babbling recently, and let me just say- its the cutest thing ever. Anyway, here are a couple pictures of my chubby little baby.

Do the Dew

I basically went my whole pregnancy without it.

Now its back.

Oh how I have missed you, Mr. Dew.

Mr. Poopy Pants

I never would have guessed that a human being so small could produce such a large amount of poop...

I Do

Two years ago today I married the most wonderful man in the entire world. He was my first boyfriend, my first kiss, my first love, and my first… Well you get the picture. I never, in my wildest dreams, imagined that I would find someone that would want to put up with all my crap for the rest of their life. I never thought I would get lucky enough to find a guy that I would fall more in love with each and every day. I never thought I would find a guy this perfect. I never thought it was possible be this happy.

I love you Daniel, and I am so excited I get to spend the rest of my life with you.

Year 1

Yesterday I started reading the first book in my new series I am going through. I have never had the desire to read Harry Potter before (mainly because all I ever heard about it was that it was of the devil), but over the years I kept running into more people who absolutely love Harry. So I decided to give it a try. I read 7 chapters within a 2 1/2 hour time period... and I am hooked. I can totally understand why people love this series. Its such an exciting story, and I haven't even finished half of the first book yet.


Thank you to everyone who opened my sheltered eyes to Mr. Potter.

8 weeks old

He is already growing up so fast!

Wednesday, November 07, 2007


I'm cold.

Its like -13 degrees in this house.

I need to make sure our child hasn't turned into a human Popsicle.

*Leaves bloggerville to check on son*

Sunday, November 04, 2007


I am officially done with the series Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. I absolutely loved the books. It has rekindled my love for reading a good book. I am kind of sad I finished them though.

Now I need to find something else to read. I have heard Harry Potter is excellent. I have NEVER done so much as pick up a book or watch any of the movies. So what do you say? Should I give Harry a go? Or do you have another series to suggest?

The Great Pumpkin

Yesterday was Zac's first Halloween! Since Zac couldn't really do anything but sleep, we went to the Candy Fest for a little bit and walked around with our god-daughter Leecy. (See picture below)

Anyway- here are a couple of pictures from Zac's first Halloween!

Happy Halloween!

Being the blog stalker that I am... I have noticed something very interesting. Bloggers in general are getting lazy. They are updating their own blogs, but no one is commenting on anyone elses blog! (Except for Tammi's. She is uber popular) Anyway- I have noticed that people are getting very lazy when it comes to commenting and decided to blog about it. So there.

Not like I am expecting any comments from you people.

Daniel is out of town for a work conference.

I miss him a lot

Luckily he is coming home today. :)

Thursday, October 25, 2007


Finally got a smile on camera! Isn't he the cutest?

Tuesday, October 23, 2007


Zac started smiling a little bit. (and no, not just when he is pooping) So during our play time I tried to capture one of those cute little smiles. And this is what I ended up with...

Maybe next time. :)

Horray for clean clothes!

This afternoon I have washed, dried and folded two loads of laundry that I started today, folded the two loads that I did last week (yeah... bad habit), packed up all my maternity clothes and moved the last of my pre-preggo cloths back to their home.

Ahhhh... it feels good to have my closet back.

Two down, two to go

A couple blogs down I said that I needed a book to read. Well Amy N. has supplied me with not one, not two, not three, but FOUR books to read. And let me just say, I LOVE this series. Its just what I needed to read for my chill time. I have finished the first two, and have started on the third.

Thanks Amy!

I have been a lazy blogger. I just haven't found anything "blog worthy" lately. I am in a dry spell. Which I guess doesn't come as to much of a surprise... considering all I do is feed Zac, change him, and watch him sleep. Every now and then a kink will be thrown into the plan of eating, sleeping and pooping. But that kink is usually Zac screaming all day unless I am holding him. *sigh*

On a side note we did go on a our very first stroll yesterday (which, by the way, was one of the screaming days). And boy howdy am I out of shape. We walked around the block, which didn't even take a full 10 minutes, but by the time I got back to the house I was tired and sweating. Then I quickly remembered why I NEVER did any physical activity before I had a baby. Anyway- Zac fell asleep before we strolled out of the driveway and woke up when we got back into the house. Oh well. At least I had 10 min. of quiet.

Special Thanks

Zac wanted to make sure to thank his Mimi and Poppie for the wonderful glider they gave us! As you can see, mommy isn't the only one who snoozes in the glider.

Thank you Mimi and Poppie! :)

I need a good book to read. I haven't sat down and actually read a book in forever. I don't want a book that makes you think too hard, or that is too serious or spiritual. (am I sounding like a heathen yet?) I just want a gool ol book that will not help you with anything in life. I want to read a book just for the heck of it and enjoy it.

Enough repetitiveness. I need suggestions. What have you read recently, or not so recently that you think is worthy to be suggested? The only requirement is that it must be interesting. I cannot sit down to FINALLY read a book and fall asleep immediately.

Ok. Suggest!

Bath Time!

I know all I have been doing is posting pictures of my kid... But I just cant get over how cute he is! So I apologize for the lack of substance in my blogs lately. But I am obsessed with pictures.

So here is my baby getting ready to take a sponge bath.
(we conquer the actual bathtub next week.)

(he needs to grow into his towel)

And the after shot. He isn't a fan of being naked.

by the way... I am obsessed with adorable hooded towels. So you will probably be seeing a lot more pictures of future bath events.

Mommy Necklace

As everyone already knows, my husband is the absolute greatest. I probably don't have to go down the list of all the house work and cooking that he does for me. And now he helps out a TON with baby Zac. But he apparently felt the need to one up himself as he shows his greatness once again. I found this on my pillow after we came home from the hospital. Meet my mommy necklace. Isn't it beautiful??? I LOVE it. He does the greatest job picking out jewelry. :)
So I have a mommy ring and a mommy necklace. All that's left is a mommy bracelet and mommy earrings! (And mark my word, we will be waiting a while to receive those)

Cutie Patootie

Zac is congested so he has been sleeping in his rocker seat to help the drainage. (maybe if I vacuumed every now and then he would be able to breath better....hmm)
He is so darn cute if I do say so myself.

me n my baby

Love it.

1 week old

And he has already figured out how to keep the paci from falling out of his mouth. Genius I tell ya. Pure genius.

Zachariah Alan Titus

More to come later... when I can actually sit down and think about everything that happened. So here are some pictures of my beautiful baby boy. (I just couldnt help myself)

He is so dadgum cute. I just cant stand it!

He is perfect. I honestly couldn't have asked for an easier delivery, a more encouraging husband, and a more precious baby.

Breaking of the Water

My water broke... So, we are off to have a baby!

Catch ya on the flip side

Wednesday, September 12, 2007


Just got back from a lovely Dr. visit so I thought I would update everyone.

I have just under 2 weeks to go until my due date (September 28)
I am 1 cm dilated (9 more to go before I can push this sucker out)
The baby is in the head down position (which is always a plus)

So all of that leads to a thumbs up from me. Though I still don't expect to actually deliver until early October, at least things are moving along. :)

Pity Party

I am

sick of being pregnant
tired of being so emotional
tired of having the worst luck ever
wanting to buy cute cloths that doesn't have the word "maternity" sown into the tag
tired of being pregnant (wait, have i already said that?)
feeling stupid for having a pity party in the first place
wishing i could find a FREAKIN PEDIATRICIAN
really wanting a sour apple martini right about now

Its been one of those days

This past Saturday I had my last baby shower. I knew it was going to be a good shower... well just because of the people planning it. But I had no clue how much work these girls put into this shower! To your left you will see the 5 amazing ladies that hosted the shower.

I want to give special Kudos to Hayley... who came up with the wonderful idea of having all the guests decorate white onesies for baby Zachariah. It was a hit! Everyone had so much fun.

Anyway, here are a few pictures from the shower:

The food was sooo yummy

Onesie painting station...

The painting of the onesies

and a few finished onesies

So thanks to my wonderful hostesses. You girls did an amazing job. And thanks for sending us home with over 20 decorated onesies! :)

Needle Anyone?

I am the most indecisive person you will ever meet. When trying to figure out what to eat for dinner Daniel has to stand in the kitchen and go through the freezer, fridge, and pantry telling me the options. Then I ask him what he wants, and he narrows the choices down for me, and then I might pick something to eat. Its a freakin 15-20 min. process here people.

Anyway. I have wanted a tatoo for the longest time. I just havent been able to figure out what to get or where to put it. I also have this new found obsession for nose rings. So... here are my two options.

1) The Tattoo: I don't want anything too big and I would like something that could be covered up if need be. I also don't want it anywhere that would stretch when I gain weight or get pregnant. So here are my two thoughts. Option A: Get a smallish tattoo of my wedding flower (Calla Lilies) on my shoulder blade. Option B: Get a toe ring tattoo that says "Zac".

The iffy's? I am not sure how good a tattoo would look on the shoulder blade. My luck it would end up looking idiotic. I just haven't seen enough of them to be confident. My iffy's on the toe ring? From everything I have read it hurts like heck. One woman said that it hurt worse than childbirth and gallstones. I am wanting more than just one kid. So if I end up having more kids I am in a bind... "Yeah, Zac is tattooed on my toe, but the pain was too horrible, so you two kids are out of luck."

2) The Nose Ring: I have my ears pierced... but that's about it. I used to want my belly button pierced, but thank God that was just a rebellion thing when I was in high school. Once my parents said they would rip it out if I got one I got out of that phase quickly. So I haven't really had the urge to get anything else pierced. But now for some reason I am LOVING the nose ring. Not a barbell or anything, but a cute little stud. I think they are so adorable. So now I am kind of wanting one of those.

The iffy's? I don't do pain. And it seems like it would hurt.

Now is where you come in. If anyone has a tattoo or nose ring or knows someone, or if you just have an opinion on which one you think I could handle more, that would be great. Give me the pros and cons.

Now this is not a time sensitive matter. I am not going to get either of these done before I have the baby, and I probably wont be able to afford either one for another 75 year or so... but I had some free time on my hands today and decided to ponder the issue.

Whatcha think?

Everyone needs a good cry

During just about every meal that Daniel and I eat together, we watch a movie or TV show. We very rarely eat at the kitchen table- its always in the living room in front of the TV. So last night we were going through our regular process of picking out a movie to watch and we had narrowed it down to 3 movies. Spaceballs, Forrest Gump, and I think the other one was Toy Story. But I am not sure. Anyway, I was kindof in the mood for Forrest Gump and I hadn't seen it in forever- so we went with it. Well I don't know if my memory is just THAT horrible, or if out of all the times I have watched that movie I just missed it- but I did not remember the ending. I am talking about I had no recollection of the time he finds out he has a son to the very end. So needless to say I BALLED my little eyes out. I mean, I cried from the graveyard scene until about 15 min. after it was over. It was ridiculous.
ANYWAY. All that to say- is it actually possible that I have never seen the whole movie, or am I just suffering from some type of memory loss?

Nothing to blog about

I went to the Dr. today. Let me start off by saying I was in and out in a little less than 30 min. So in and of itself, that qualifies as a wonderful Dr. appointment. The discouraging part is that I had to get on the scale... and I think I gained 4 pounds in two weeks. I am hoping I just forgot what the scale said last time... but I doubt it. Anyway, the cool part is that I had some contractions while the midwife was checking the baby's heartbeat and stuff. Now I cant feel them, therefore I have no clue when I am having them, but she said I had a couple... so I am assuming she knows what she is talking about.

6 weeks to go. I really just want this baby to hurry up and come on out- if for no other reason so that I can actually have something worthwhile to blog about.

Wednesday, August 08, 2007

Again? Really?

You would think that with only 7 weeks left in my pregnancy I wouldnt have to blog about this anymore.

But I think I am going to puke.

Mixed feelings

As everyone knows, I used to teach K3. Last night I had a dream about my previous class, so I am going to go on a tiny random tangent. Now most of this is probably the pregnancy hormones getting to me, but I am kind of sad I am not teaching this year! Now don't get me wrong... I am beyond thankful that God worked it out to where I don't have to work there next year and therefore I don't have to put up with the endless supply of crap that was bestowed upon me. But part of me misses the whole teaching aspect of it. So in the spirit of reminiscing... here are way to many pictures of my oh so cute class I had last year.
