Ta-Dah

Well, ladies and gents the nursery is finished! It is so bizarre to think that in 10 days, yes 10 days, we will be leaving for the hospital and bringing our little girl home to this room. I love the nursery. It is exactly what I wanted. Simple but sweet and filled with lots of love.

A Cry For Help


Chlo my Low and myself thought it was time to reach out to my Mom's friends for some help. We are b-o-r-e-d and worweid. All my Madre does is sleep, eat, watch tv, sleep, eat, and watch tv. I think she might be depressed. I made a call to Dr. Drew and Dr. Phil but still waiting for a ring-a-ding back.  My homie down the street said his Mom was depressed for years and would just sleep and eat too. Homes also said she gained so much weight and come to think of it.... my Momma has too! I am worweid sick. The scary thing is, she doesn't seem concerned with her rapid weight gain. 


I am so embarrassed for her. She thinks she looks cute

Chlo is attempting to give her a settle hint. Mom  didn't catch on


I used to doggie dream of the days I got to spend lounging around with my Mom but gurl do I take it back. It has turned into a dogaster! Chlo Chlo and I are out of activities to do. Our gang activities do not even provide us entertainment anymore and it isn't the fact it was just us two living dangerously. Chlo has really taken a turn for the worst. She is spending more and more time in "her" room with the door closed with Super Freak turned up to the max. I have not worked up the nerve to open the door.

So my plea is find us some hobbies or healthy activities to do. I do not think we will be able to take this much longer. 

SOS,

Nesting

The nesting phase has officially started. I am finding it hard to sit around the house without coming up with chores to do. This is probably a good thing since I have been so lazy the past few weeks. I have cleaned the whole house top to bottom, Stanley steamer is coming in a few weeks to clean the carpets and furniture, dogs are clean, and the cars are clean (thanks Josh). All I need is a baby.

A clean couch: Check

A clean Harold: Check

Week 2

I thought I would update you on my quest to become a successful and organized "stay at home Mom" without a baby. It is the middle of week 2 and things are going pretty great! It is amazing how busy you can make yourself if you want to. The key word is "want" to. Most days I spend on the couch watching awful daytime television or running errands I haven't had the opportunity to the past few years. I have cooked everyday but the weekends, kept the house cleaned, organized closets, prepared for Charlotte, and ran housewife errands. So far... this lifestyle is pretty great although I am getting a bit antsy and more than ready for  Charlotte to make an appearance.

Pregnancy Update

I will be 35 weeks tomorrow and everything is moving along just fine. I had a doctor's appointment this afternoon and Charlotte's little head is positioned down, her heartbeat is strong at 147, and her Mom is gaining the weight needed for a healthy baby. If everything continues on track Josh and I will check into the hospital Thursday, February 10th at 8pm for our scheduled inducement.

In the next 3.5 weeks I will be busy reading my baby books, finishing her room, cleaning the house, starting her baby book, putting together the remaining baby gadgets, and enjoying time with family and friends.

I must give a shout out to Chloe Lane Vaughn White for allowing me to practice some baby techniques on her so I will be ready when the time comes!

Fo Snizzle My Nizzle

If you come to the White house in the hours of 1am-5am most likely me, Chloe, and Harold are watching either The First 48, Cold Case Files, Solved: Extreme Forensics, Unsolved Mysteries, and Murder Identity.     Chloe and Harold are having a difficult time separating from these shows come morning time.

This morning I was surprised when I didn't find both of them in bed with me. I immediately had a pit in my stomach because the three of us had a marathon of murder/gang shows last night so I knew this had something to do with their disappearance. I went out front and sure enough they were "recruiting" on the street corner and flashing gang signs to the other neighborhood dogs. Bless their hearts, the other dogs just laugh at them and keep walking. Harold will say, "You betta keep walkin' my dizzle" and Chloe follows with "That's right, you can't handle this snizzle for shizzle. Boo-yah" They high five each other and look for their next victim. 

I yell at Gentle Don and Bad Baby to come inside. They will not respond by their birth names if they are in their colors.

Devon Daddy

If having a baby in a MONTH isn't life changing enough Josh got a new job. For about three years he has worked relentlessly to get a job at Devon. His persistence paid off because today was his first day of work at Devon Energy in the marketing department. I have never been more proud of Josh and I am beyond happy for him.

34 Weeks

Josh and I went to the Thunder game Saturday night so I had him snap a picture before we left. This is a picture of me and Charlotte at 34 weeks.

Bed Time

I am still struggling with my sleeping but not as much as I used to. I usually start off in our bed, then move to the couch to watch tv and have a snack, and then end up in the guest room bed to stretch out. The pups love following me from room to room and have our late night snacks.

Josh took this picture this morning when he left for work

Baby Care Class

Last night Josh and I went to our baby care class at Mercy. I was a bit disappointed because I didn't think it was very informative. I am too laid back to a fault but most of the stuff that was discussed last night I feel it is just one of those things you have to figure out on your own by trail and error. Saturday we have baby CPR and at the end of the month we have the baby feeding class.
