bored today!

Wed, 28 Apr 2010 13:35:00 +0000

I cleaned the house yesterday and mowed the yard, so now i have nothing to do today. I scrapbooked one page already today and may do a few more. Constance is sick today so she stayed home with me. im thinking of going to lay in our bed with all three girls and watching a movie. It just feels like a very lazy day! Hope everyone has a great day and rest of the week!!



I mean it this time....

Sun, 25 Apr 2010 17:03:00 +0000

Missing tooth!!!Paige and her daddy! Me and my baby girl!Big smiles!Minnie ears!Our beautiful Ivy!!!Big girlOk, I am starting to miss blogging now! lol So Im starting it back up yet again!!! Lets see, an update real quick. Paige is now 3 1/2 months old! She has grown so much! She is now talking ALOT, and she sleeps completely through the night. She really has been the easiest baby to take care of out of all three of them. Constance is doing well in preschool. She loves going, and is excited to start Kindergarten this coming up year! Im a little sad and excited about that as well. She lost her first tooth about a week ago, with a second one getting looser every day! Ivy is my typical three year old! Sweet as can be at one moment, and stubborn and through a fit the next! She will be starting preschool in the fall! She will be going two days a week! I really hope she adjusts well. I wasnt too worried about constance when she first went, but Ivy is a little more shy around people she doesnt know. Im worried about how the first day will be! David is good. He had to work 12 hour shifts all week, so he has been pretty tired. I have been doing good as well. Just trying to keep up with the girls! That is an all day job in itself! I am going to add a few pictures of the last few weeks. Enjoy![...]

Life is hard....

Thu, 04 Mar 2010 19:22:00 +0000

This is supossed to be the happiest time in my life, and right now it isnt. I have alot going on, alot on my mind. I wont get into specifics, but its not good at this point. I dont know what the future holds for me and my girls. I dont want to make the wrong decision for them, but I have no idea what the right decision is. If I make the hard decision, the one I dont want to have to make, its going to be so tough. I honestly dont have anywhere to go. I will be starting out with nothing. What do I do with that? But do I stay because of that? Urrrgggg... This is so hard.

Sorry, just venting. Dont want to post anything on facebook, but I know a few select people that I trust are the only ones that read this, so Im venting here.



Im back!

Sun, 21 Feb 2010 15:57:00 +0000

Ok, Im back to blogging now! I got in a rutt for a while there and just didnt want to do it, and then Paige was born and that threw doing anything that took time out the window! lol Now that things have settled down and she is on a good schedule I can sit down and do it again. Ive added a few pictures of the little princess and her big sisters too! Let me tell you life with three little girls is definately interesting! I feel like my whole house is coated in pink stuff! I will try to keep up with my blog on a regular basis. Hopefully lack of sleep and energy will not make it too hard!

Big Smiles! I love those cheeks!

So is anyone getting tired of all the snow already? I sure am! Its snowing here now and we are suppossed to get alot apparently! Id say we have about 2-3 inches already and its coming down pretty hard still! We may take the girls out sledding this afternoon! When I say we, I really mean David! lol Im not much on playing in the snow, I hate being cold! I think Ivy agrees with me too. She doesnt stay out there for very long before she is begging to go inside. Constance on the other hand would stay out there all day if I let her!
Alright, well Im off here for now! David will be home soon and then Im taking a much needed nap with Paige!








Apollo

Wed, 18 Nov 2009 19:04:00 +0000

(image) We have been having alot of issues with Apollo since our move, but things seem to be getting better now. After we moved it really freaked him out, and every time we would leave him alone, he would panic and destroy doors, mini blinds, door frames, and anything he could get to basically. He would also poop on the floor and dump his water and food bowl and scatter the food around the whole room! I think he was showing us that he was mad at us by doing the food thing! lol Anyways, we couldn't do it anymore. He has caused alot of damage to this house already that we will have to pay back. We cant put him in the backyard cause he can easily jump the fence, which he as done several times, and he hurts himself on his cable every time we try that. So our last resort was a kennel to put him in while we are gone. He is still afraid of it, but he has been going in it pretty easy for me. I always give him a treat when he goes in there like he is supposed to. I'm glad he is doing good, cause I didn't want to hurt myself or the baby trying to get him in there. So anyways, it seems to be our best solution. Only problem is now, we cant go anywhere for an extended period of time cause we cant leave him in there too long. Not sure what to do about that one. We will try to figure something out though. Right now, he is sleeping on the floor with his stuffed duck! lol



A new life is about to begin!

definately a girl!

(image) this one is hard to see, but it is her face on the left hand side. Her hand is up over her eyes!



(image) little foot!
Well, I am now 32 weeks pregnant! Im getting excited to meet this little one, but I have to be patient a little bit longer! Before I know it, she will be here, and life as a mother of three will begin. It will be interesting to see how that all works out! Im not nervous about it though like I thought I would be. It will take some getting used to Im sure, but we will make it!
This last weekend David and my mom were here. It was very nice to get to see them both. The girls got some much needed Daddy time. He will be home again on Thanksgiving and for the rest of that weekend, then not much longer after that he will graduate. Im contemplating driving down there with my mom to his graduation, but I will be 35 weeks then, and I delivered both girls at 36 weeks. I have a doctor appt friday and I will ask her opinion on that.








So Bored!

Mon, 09 Nov 2009 13:54:00 +0000

I get so bored when David is away!!! Luckily my good friend lives literally four houses down, so we have been having alot of movie nights lately! lol In fact we are having another one tonight. Yesterday my dad came and got the girls for part of the day. He took them out to lunch and to the park. They also went to this cute little town called Weston, MO. Its a historic town, but I guess when they were walking down the street Constance asked where the Walmart was! LOL She says the funniest things! While they were gone I got all the rest of my scrapbook stuff organized and put away. I was going to scrapbook last night, but by the time the girls were in bed I was too tired! Figures!

So far this pregnancy has been alot different from the girls. It is coming up to the end of it though. I am almost 31 weeks now. I am feeling very pregnant at the time. All the back aches, tiredness, and having to pee every few minutes, that goes with being in the third trimester! Its all so worth it though. I really cant wait to meet this little gal! Im very curious about what she will look like. We have a blond, and a brunette, so maybe we will get a red head this time! lol

David is doing good, but wishing he was home. I think all the seperations from his family are getting to him a little bit. He will get to come home for a four day weekend for Thanksgiving though. Only two and a half weeks til then. I know we are both counting down the days. Constance is having a hard time this time with him being gone. She was telling him good night on the phone a few nights back, and started crying cause she wanted her Daddy to come home. The military life is good, but it definately is hard, especially on these little ones. It just breaks my heart :(



Sad Day at Fort Hood

Fri, 06 Nov 2009 15:11:00 +0000

As you all have heard by now, there was a mass shooting at Fort Hood yesterday. It was such a tragedy. I feel for all the families affected by this. Most of the soldiers killed where getting ready to head to Iraq. What a horrible thing to be worried about having to go to a war zone, just to be killed before you even get there. I cant even imagine what the families are going through right now. Just to think that we were just there is a little scary. Im just glad that everyone we know was ok. This all just makes me want David home even more right now. I am just going to ask everyone who reads this to pray for the victims and their families. Also pray for the shooter. For what ever reason he felt the need to kill these soldiers, and now he will live with that for the rest of his life. Pray that as he is laying in his hospital bed he is willing to come out and say why he did it. Already this has caused alot of controversy that could be solved if he will give his reasons.



Visit from Brian and Codie!

Brian and Codie drove up from Columbia today to visit with us for a bit and see our new place. It was nice to have company. Makes the time David is away go by just a tiny bit faster! The girls had alot of fun with thier aunt and uncle!








I also got a little bit of Christmas and baby shopping done today. I ordered miss Paige a carseat and bassinet. We should get them next week. Then I got a couple of things for the girls for Christmas, and am completely done shopping for my mom and David! Now to sit down and make a list of who else I still need to shop for!








Saturday my mom and Grandma Vote are coming up for the weekend. It will be nice to have company then too! We are going to do the whole Halloween thing while they are here, so that should be fun! Here are a few pictures from our day today :)



a few pictures!

Mon, 26 Oct 2009 15:21:00 +0000

Here are a few pictures from since we moved. Blogger was taking forever to upload them so sorry there are not more! Im sure you have all seen them on facebook already though! lol(image)

Ok so here is my update blog. I will try to recount our move for everyone. We left Texas on the 24th of September. I was never so glad to say goodbye to Texas! It just was not home for us. We then stayed the night in Oklahoma, where we met up with Kevin and Rennie for dinner. It was nice to see them. When we got back to the hotel room we opened the door and saw all the damage Mr. Apollo did to the place! I was in shock. He had never been destructive like that before. I know it was just because of the move though. Luckily the manager did not charge us a penny!!! The next day we headed up to Blue Springs where we spent the next two weeks waiting for our house to be ready to move into. It felt like an eternity!! Finally we got the keys to the place and came up here to Fort Leavenworth to move in! We love our new house, it is so big! Our good friends got a place four houses down, so that turned out great! We have had a few late night Rock Band sessions since we moved in with them! Thats alot of fun. Now both of our husbands are in school. Its nice to have someone so close, we can just walk to each others places if we get bored!



Im back!

Mon, 26 Oct 2009 01:06:00 +0000

Ok so it has been awhile since I have put a post on here. With the move and everything, and then getting settled in I just havent found the time to sit and do it. I will do a much better post tomorrow, with pictures. Its almost bed time for two little girls I know!

We are settled in our new house and we really like it. David is now at school. He has been gone for two days and officially starts his schooling on how to be a prison gaurd tomorrow. I think he is looking forward to learning what he will have to do, but he is not liking being away from home(AGAIN!!) lol.

Anyways, more to come tomorrow!



One week to go!

Thu, 17 Sep 2009 16:02:00 +0000

We are officially out of Texas in 7 days! 5 days from now we will be packing the moving truck and getting everything ready to go! I cant wait to get up to Missouri. We still have a bit more to pack up, but it is all really starting to come together. Tomorrow David will head up to the unit and get completely cleared out there. After that we just have to focus on getting the house empty and cleaned up a bit.

Today David is going to be taking miss Constance to the doctor. I noticed her tonsils were red with white spots on them. She acts just fine, but we wanted to get it checked out before we get moved. I didnt want it to turn into something more while we are on the road or something. I am going to stay home with Ivy while she is napping and hopefully get a few more things around here done. I am lacking major energy right now, so hopefully after I eat some lunch it will get better.

I talked to the lady from housing in Leavenworth a couple of days ago, and she said we will have a house for sure, she just doesnt have an official list of addresses to know which ones for sure are available. We should be able to get a four bedroom though, and she did say they will be in either Osage or Ottawa villages on post, and those are the ones we wanted. We have everything on our end sent to her, so all we have to do now is get there and see which house we get!



Looking up!

Thu, 10 Sep 2009 13:56:00 +0000

Our housing prospects are looking up. We decided just to wait for on-post housing, instead of buying right now. I talked to the housing coordinator today and she said we may be able to move in on the 28th if not soon after that. She wont know anything for sure until next week when the roster comes out for all houses opening up soon. So I will call her either Monday or Tuesday and hopefully we will have an address and a move in date!!!



Mud Bath Anyone?

Moving update!

Tue, 08 Sep 2009 17:06:00 +0000

Well there are only 16 days til our big move. Lots to do before then and after as well. I was supposed to have an ultrasound today. Im not sure what happened but I got the wrong appt time, so I missed it. They cant get me in before we move, but she did assure me it was only to get a few more pictures of her heart and there was nothing wrong. I called today and got an appt. set up with an OB doc in Leavenworth, and let them know all this info, so they will probably want to do one after we get there. My appt is the 28th, so we are going to make a day of it checking out the Leavenworth area and hopefully getting some more info on our housing situation. David is currently at his last clearing briefing where he will get all his paperwork so he can clear post here.

After the move we have a few things we are wanting to do with family. On October 3rd we are going to join my mom and other family for the Diabetes Walk. I am pretty excited to be able to do that. Then the next day we are headed to Branson with my mom and my grandma Vote for the day. I love Branson, so it should be a fun day. That's pretty much all the updates I have for now. Now its nap time. Both girls are cranky right now so I'm hoping they will both sleep and I am going to pack some more! Yeah for me!



21 weeks

Wed, 02 Sep 2009 21:06:00 +0000

I had my appt today with my high risk doctor. He said Im not really high risk technically unless I am on medication for it and he did not want to put me on any. He said I am doing ok where I am just need to be very careful with what I eat. I asked him about the baby's size when she is born. The girls were both around 6 pounds so he said to expect maybe a pound or so bigger, but nothing major if I keep my diet under control. Thats good news to me. I dont know if I could handle a 10 pounder! lol Gina and Jenny, I dont know how you both did that! lol So anyways my uterus was measuring right at 21 cm, and her heartbeat was in the 170's. She is a very active baby all day. Im hoping this means after she is born she will be up more during the day and be a good sleeper at night, but you know that is just hopes and dreams! lol Next week is my ultrasound. I will post more ultrasound pics after I get them!



Fingerpaints!

Fri, 28 Aug 2009 15:29:00 +0000

Ivys handprint! I thought these would be cute to scrapbook!(image) Constance's handprint!
(image)
Ivy was REALLY getting into it! lol

blue fingers

(image)


Having fun!
(image)
I thought we needed a break from cleaning this morning, so we made some fingerpaints! It is super easy to make and super cheap too! You use flour and water until you get a paste and then just add food coloring to make whatever colors you want. The girls had a blast with it. Ivy got it everywhere including a nice big handprint on my face as I was getting her into the bath. lol
Oh and by the way there are only 26 days til we move!!!! I cant wait to get to the midwest. The south is just not for me!
Thanks to everyone for your thoughts and prayers for miss Paige. I will keep everyone updated on everything that goes on. My next appt. is on the 2nd with a high risk doctor, and then the ultrasound is the 8th.







Follow-up ultrasound

Thu, 27 Aug 2009 22:37:00 +0000

20 weeks and 3 days(image)
You know, this pregnancy has been nothing I was expecting. My first two pregnancies went very smoothly, no issues (except for a few pesky stretch marks)! This pregnancy, if its not one things, its another. The Doctor called and told me she wants a follow-up ultrasound. She wanted a few more pictures of the baby's heart. She assured me it was nothing to worry about. So I called to make the appt., and was told the dont have any open until the 24th. That is the day we move. So she said sorry I dont have any thing open any earlier. So I just thought, Ok I will just see if my new Dr. in KS wants to have another one done as soon as we get there. The lady I had talked to on the phone about getting an appt. called me back a few hours later and said that my dr. wanted me to have it before I leave and to get me in somewhere. So my ultrasound will be on the 8th. Im a little worried, even though she said nothing was wrong. So Im a little on edge right now. Im sure if she thought it we something serious she would have told me what it was. Maybe they just didnt take enough pictures of her heart or something. I dont know, but I do wish it were the 8th already, so we can know if she is fine or not. For anyone out there who prays, Im just asking that you pray for our little girl. That she will be born a healthy, thriving little girl.



Gestational Diabetes

Thu, 20 Aug 2009 17:34:00 +0000

Yesterday afternoon I got a call from my doctor saying that I have gestational diabetes. I was a little shocked, and kind of upset about it all day yesterday. I am better about it today. I had a nutrition class and then a class on how to use my meter today. I learned ALOT. I thought I wasnt going to get to eat any sugar for the rest of my pregnancy, turns out though its not about the sugar. I just have to monitor my carb intake really carefully from now on. Its going to take a bit of getting used to writing down everything I eat and counting all the carbs, but its worth having a healthy baby.

I did learn today that my levels the day I had my glucose test were horrible. It was 222, and they like to see it under 135. So I was a bit off! lol Not good, but now I know how to try to control that. I am starting with my new diet today, and testing today. If my levels still stay abnormal they may put me on medication, but we will just take this one step at a time. We will just pray that everything turns out good, and hope the baby comes out healthy and not too big!



Wordless Wednesday!

Things are coming together now!

Mon, 17 Aug 2009 18:15:00 +0000

Things are starting to come together now for our move. Finally! lol David got his orders last week. We needed those before we could really start anything else. So today I called housing. They are not going to have anything ready for us for when we get there. So now on to plan b, we are concidering buying a house. He is up for re-enlistment in October, so when he does that he can put in for request for duty station. We would just keep that Leavenworth, which means we would have like at least eight years there! So we should have someone calling us in the next couple days from Remax. We will see if that is the route we want to take after we talk to them.

We will be moving out of this house on the 24th. My dad and grandpa are going to be flying down here to help us out with the move. Once we are up there we will be staying with my Dad until we have a place. At least we will be close enough to family to be able to do that. Makes things ALOT less stressful to know that we have a place to stay if we dont have a place of our own right away. Also if we do end up buying or even renting we will be in the Leavenworth school district and Constance will be able to go to preschool! So that would be great. I will keep posting about our progress on our housing situation!



Its a girl!

Fri, 14 Aug 2009 13:32:00 +0000

Introducing Paige Victoria Singell! We are so excited to have another girl. Our family just feels right having girls. Growing up I always wanted boys, and now I dont think I would even know what to do with a boy! lol The ultrasound was alot of fun, and David got to go. We didnt get any good shots of her face because everytime the lady tried Paige would put her hands over her face! lol She did not want her picture taken! So cute! Yesterday afternoon we went and bought a cute pink sleeper! A friend of mine is getting a bunch of clothes from one of her friends for us too, so I cant wait to go through them! This just makes everything seem so much more real!(image) 18 Weeks and 3 days
(image) My mom and grandma came down for two days as well. We had alot of fun while they were here. The girls loved having someone else to play with I think! lol I really didnt even get to see much of my own kids! lol I am grateful for them coming though, cause if they didnt David would not have gotten to go to the Ultrasound. This is the one thing he has gotten to do with all three girls now.
Next on the adgenda is moving. We are looking at sometime the week of September 21st-25th. Thats not too long from now at all. We are getting a bunch of boxes this weekend and getting started on packing everything up! I love packing! NOT!



17 weeks!

Mon, 03 Aug 2009 15:47:00 +0000

I just got back from my prenatal appt. I had to take the girls with me, cause David could not leave work today and my friend was babysittinig for someone else. So I was a little nervous on how it would turn out! lol They did very good though. They sat the whole time and read books. They were really quiet and listening when we were listening to the baby's heartbeat. I was impressed on how good they did.

The baby sounded really good. Heartbeat was in the 160's again. Im still convinced its a girl :) Great thing is so far Ive only gained 2 pounds with this baby. Woohoo! lol I was totally expecting to see a higher number than I did! lol

So next week is our ultrasound. Not sure if David is going to get to go or not. He has some kind of training that whole week, but he is going to try to get out of it for a bit that day. I am keeping my fingers crossed. He got to go to both of the girls. If he doesnt, my mom and grandma will be here, so my mom will go with me. At least I know I have someone to go with me! As soon as we find out what we are having and make sure the baby is good and healthy, I will let the whole world know! lol
