RAK winner...

SO, I finally went back and read the weight guesses for Alden. Some of you are so cute thinking I was going to pop out a 7 pounder!! ROFLOL... um, not quite. So... the winner is Ronda with her guess of 9 lbs 6oz. (Remember the big man weighed in at 10lbs, 6½ oz. :) ) So... Ronda, I have something that will be going out to you shortly. :)



In other news, I am back to feeling normal, and the dairycowedness state is going well. SO well in fact that we need to buy another freezer for all the milk. We have an upright freezer, but I am literally cooking the food out of it just to make room for the milk I am freezing. So... we are going to have to invest in another one. I have been searching Craigslist to no avail, so I guess this means we have to head to Sears... unless one of you has one and can send it to me... haha.

I have been reading alot whilst pumping. I have not found an easy way to scrap and do it so... I flew through three books that Melanie sent me. They were great reads, and I will gladly send them on to someone else if you want. ( they were all by Diane Mott Davidson, Catering to Nobody, The LAst Suppers, and The Cereal Murders.) Then last week Saturday I grabbed a Jodi Picoult book, The Pact, while in Target... It was nice and long so I figured it would be a good one to last awhile whilst pumping. (yes, I must say WHILST when referring to pumping, it gives some measure of dignity.) ... um, not so. I could not put it down and finished it by Wednesday. This is why I do not buy books. :) I think I will hit the library this week instead eh?

The six week mark is fast approaching, that means I will need to start some exercising again. Really, your body should get thinner with each child, and in better shape. I mean you are creating life and helping the human race to continue, so it would be a nice perk. Alas, that is not the case, and before anything goes any further south, I must hit the weights.
Here are a couple pictures of Alden smiling. I LOVE it when Lincoln and Emerson get him to, so so cute. :)

Here is my latest LO for UnPubbed, go and participate K??? :)

  11. He's sooooo sweet! Love your layout! The library is a great place for times when books are to be devoured! Hope you find some good ones (try Dianna Gabaldan for so steamy and hard to put down historical fiction!) I also really love anything by the Thoene's and Francine Rivers, and Liz Curtis Higgs. Have a great day! Kim

  12. He is so darn cute Jude!! And already six weeks - WOW!
    I have also started getting more books from the library - and ours has it set up that you request books online and then they have them ready for you at the front desk (or email you when they get it) - totally helps for those days I don't have kids that wish to browse the library...hopefully yours has something like that available also.

  14. ooh just catching up! Hey, when my sister had a preemie, there were people like her that were too sick to nurse but the hospital was all too happy to have breast milk. You should see if you can donate some or if they have that in your area. Some people are grossed out by it, but giving my nephew my breast milk helped get some meat on his bones and get him home! Alden is growing soo big! Don't ya wish they would stay little for a little longer?
    Oh and about the books, we have a book exchange. Do you guys have that there? great for those of us who read a ton. DOn't worry about scrapbooking you will need something to do at this year's blog revival! lol!

I agree with the body thing, so totally sux that we are the ones that do all the hard work ... then have to do MORE of it to get back into shape - sigh! it will make you feel good tho to start exercising again, its my sanity! LOL!

  20. I totally agree with you that we should get thinner with each child.Cause, hey, I've given the world three pretty cool individauls!!

    LOVE the Unpubbed layout. I hope to work on mine tonight.
