25 Random Things

Thanks to my Facebook friends...

1. I have received this list from many of my Facebook friends and at first I thought it was really silly. I must have had a change of heart, because here I am writing one.

2. I knew I wanted to be a mother since the time I was a little girl. These little women are my world but it is harder than I anticipated.

3. I am keenly aware of my mortality. I am not afraid of my own death but spend a great deal of my time fearing losing my children or leaving them without a mother.

4. I am married to an engineer. He is a great man and father and I love him with all my heart. He does, however, not have a romantic bone in his body.

5. I went to nursing school to become a labor and delivery nurse. It was awful because nursing school has very little to do with labor and delivery. I survived and I am glad I did.

6. I am 6'0 tall and my husband is 6'7. Our girls don't stand a chance of being average height.

7. Yes, I did play basketball in high school. I hated it and quit my senior year. Why does everyone ask that?

8. I have lived in Maryland, Kansas, Arizona, and California. All in the last 3 years.

9. I can drive a stick shift.

10. I will homeschool my kids. Even if it means I have to move to another country.

11. I am scared of the dark. Really.

12. I hate rollercoasters and I am afraid of heights.

13. My best girlfriend is my mother. I share everything with her and she with me. If I am half the mother to my kids that she was to us, I will feel like I have succeeded. She is my hero.

14. I do not like the beach. I know, I live in San Diego, but I really don't like it. The sand makes a big mess and I don't like the feeling of seaweed in my toes. I don't swim all that well so the current makes me nervous. The whole scene is something I can do without.

15. When I have an alcoholic beverage, I can feel it in my legs.

16. I breastfeed my baby. I think everyone should breastfeed their babies.

17. My feet are always cold.

18. I have a lot of professional goals but I want to be home with my kids, so if I never reach those goals, I am okay with it.

19. Jesus is my Lord and Savior.

20. I have a goal to try one of every kind of cloth diaper that is made. It is quite the undertaking if you are into that type of thing.

21. I love having professional pictures of my kids done. I would do it every month if we were rich. I cherish my pictures and would go to great lengths to save them from a natural disaster.

22. My maiden name is Purkeypile. Enough said.

23. I would love to drive a mini-van. Not many women can say that. One day, my dream will come true.

24. In middle school, my mom actually let me go to school wearing brown Bongo jeans and a flourescent orange sweatshirt.

25. My husband and my children own my heart. I love them so much it hurts and I want to be better everyday because of them.

First Cold

Hannah has her first little cold. Poor thing is pretty miserable but will give me a smile every now and again that melts my heart. I took her to the pediatrician today and they said all was well and to just ride it out. She is 7.5 months and this is her first sick visit. I think Lexi had been at least a half a dozen times by this age. Funny how much more relaxed you are the second time around. They weighed her with all of her clothes on and she weighed in at 17lb 14oz. Holy cow!

She is almost crawling. Getting on all fours and rocking back and forth. She will do it any day now. I will be sure to update with photos when she figures it out.
