Thirsties Giveaway!

I am in love with the Thirstie's printed  DUO dipes!

How cute are they?!
We plan on starting Lily in cloth here soon (I didn't choose to invest in newborn size cloth, since this is our first baby and wanted to see how well we do first)

I am prepping diapers this week, and would love to have a Thirsties to add to my small (but growing!) collection.

Want to win TWO dipes? check out THIS link !

Baby Girl is here! (and 2.5 months old!)

HELLO everyone!  I haven't blogged in forever, I have been so busy adjusting to life with a precious little lady!
Liliana Isabel Hernandez was born on 3/30/11
8 lbs 10 oz and 19.5 inches long
and of course, with a head full of hair

If you read my blog previously, you know we couldn't find out her gender no matter how hard we tried!

She has changed quite a bit these last 10 weeks, here is a shot of her now!

We are just having a blast with her! Motherhood is the greatest, isn't it?

Quick Update and Giveaway Opportunity!

Hello everyone!

If anyone is still reading?!  I have been busy working 55 hour weeks (CPA at tax season!) and am STILL pregnant.  Baby's official due date was three days ago, and he or she shows no signs of coming.

I did take the day off today due to extreme nausea and was doing some research on my ergo carrier that I have to see if I would rather buy a newborn friendly carrier or get the insert.

I of course, google'd it, looking for a "mom blog" review and found a great blog - The Cloth Diaper Report! and they are hosting a giveaway of the newborn insert!  I am entering, and you should too!  If I don't win, I will be purchasing one, but wouldn't it be great to win it?!

Go and enter if you have an ergo or plan on getting on, and good luck!

Week 31!

Holy crap, I am 31 weeks pregnant!

I can't believe how time has flown, this little guy or gal will be here in NO time.  

I am still feeling pretty great, besides the shortness of breath and potty breaks every 30 minutes.

I read today in an email that to help with the frequent potty trips, I should "double void." Meaning, pee. sit for a second. pee again.

So I tried it - fail.  I wish I could double void my bladder, then I maybe I would just go every hour.

I am also struggling with pregnancy brain, which I have assured myself time and again that this so called pregnancy brain is a myth.  I am beginning to rethink my previous position.  I actually left my phone in Menard's  today.  Hubbs was not happy when we had to turn around and trek back to the store.  Luckily someone turned it in and all is well.

I had a pretty great day with the Hubbs today, some shopping, some eating, then a trip to the bakery.  I am now back home chilling on the couch while he plays on the iPad.  The only thing missing is a cute little cuddly baby in my arms, which for now will just have to remain in my belly.

If you can remember to do so, and you believe in the power of prayer, there are two children I would like you all to remember when you talk to God today.  One is hospitalized after being beat and burned by her father.  Last I heard she was still in serious condition but improving.  It breaks my heart that someone could harm a child and inflict pain in such a manner.  This incident happened in my hometown and I do not know them personally.

The second child is a girl I know and love very dearly.  She spent a lot of time at our home before we relocated and we get to see her every once in a while when we go back and visit.  Her father has decided to sign over his rights to her.  Her stepfather is willing to take on those rights and take responsibility for her, but she is old enough to know what all this means.  She has always felt unwanted by her father, and I know she is hurting now and feeling unwanted.  We went to town today and wanted to take her with us for a while, but we couldn't reach her Mom by phone. 

Please pray for these children who are enduring physical, emotional, and mental pain.  I know they would appreciate it. Oh- and have a good week!

Tax Season.. and giveaways!

Being that it is tax season.. there are not going to be a lot of updates from me, and I will not be entering as many giveaways, which is WAY sad :(

I am working 6 days a week, so the free time I have is going to be spent with the hubs :)

But while you are here, go check out A Modern Girl's Guide! to win a cleaning supply kit from seventh generation or a bendaroos package!
