I think I was drunk

Yesterday, I babysat my two nieces because their babysitter took off for President's Day?. Anyway. They were good. Really they were. But. I was so freakin tired when my SIL picked them up at 5:30. I needed something to wine down with...I mean, WIND down with. So, after Cora went down for the night, I opened a new bottle of White Zin. 3 BIG glasses later, I think I was drunk and this why I think I was drunk....I was upstairs watching the Bachelorette, sipping on my wine and this psycho guy that wanted Jen was blabbering about how he wanted to know everything there was to know about Jen...What is her favorite movie??? What would she prefer, to lay by the pool or by the beach?? Did she like crunchy or creamy peanut butter better?? Well, I got to thinking...'I wonder if Kevin knows those things about me????'
So. I trucked my happy butt downstairs and interrupted him while he was watching his 24. How darest I interrupt him whilst he isth watching that program??? Anyway, I did and I said, I have to know 3 things. So, I asked him:
#1 What is my favorite movie??? him, "Um, I don't know, Girls Just want to Have fun?" me,"RIGHT!"
#2 What do I like better, crunchy or creamy peanut butter? him, "Um, creamy?" me, "RIGHT!"
#3 What do I like to do better, lay by the pool or lay by the beach?
him,"Um, the beach?" me, "RIGHT!!!! You do love me!"

Then, I turned around and ran back upstairs. And I realized, it must be love because, he never mentioned our conversation...he didn't need to know *why* I needed to know those things...he just answered them. AND, he got them right. Anyways, I got drunk last night and it was a Monday.

My Momma

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU! My Valentine Baby....

It's offical. Cora is one. Does that mean that she isn't a baby anymore? .... because I still hold her like a baby when I give her a bottle. A bottle? You mean I didn't take away her bottle since she is one now? Hell no, I didn't. I don't think I am in any hurry to do such a thing. I mean, what's the difference, really, between a bottle and a sippy cup? She eats like a little mouse, so I want to make sure she gets some nutrients. Plus, it is OH SO CUTE when I ask her if she wants a bottle and she gives me this little laugh that says, "Oh yes, Mommy, I would love the bottle, right now!"

She is walking a lot now too. She does the monkey walk, with her arms up in the air. AND SHE LAUGHS THE WHOLE TIME SHE WALKS, as if to say, "LOOK AT ME, I am such HOT SHIT!" This summer is going to be awesome, her in pigtails, running after the dogs. Hell, I might just wear my hair in pigtails, just for old times.

I can't believe a year has gone by. Things you never think are going to get here, get here and then FLY BY! I never thought I would get married, that flew by. I never thought I would get pregnant, that flew by. I never thought I would HAVE her, that flew by....all things you look forward to, come and go so fast, you wonder if you really savored the moment long enough when the moment was in the moment...comprende? I feel bad that I couldn't wait for Cora to be "bigger" so she slept through the night, didn't need formula anymore, walked...etc. Why didn't I just savor each and every second? Now she is one and I wish she were just getting here. Time for another baby. I have learned a lot this year.

I have learned:
* You don't die from sleep deprivation
* I can cook an entire dinner with one hand and holding a baby
* A baby can make you cry by just being cute
* Having a baby really does change everything
* Spit up on my clothes doesn't bother me as much as I thought it would
* I really would die for my child if it would save her
* Sleep is precious and dear and I wish I would have slept more before baby

Walk this way!

My almost one year old baby girl is trying her best at walking. It was Super Bowl Sunday, about 7:00. I was trying to put my pj's on and she was holding onto my leg wanting me to hold her. I backed up, leaving her standing on her own. I said, "Well, walk to me and I'll hold you!" She listens well, because she smiled as big as can be and walked a good seven steps to me, laughing the whole time! I almost cried. Maybe I did cry. I hugged her and put her back down and walked away and said, "do it again!" She did it again and again and again. We called Daddy and made him come home to watch. He did and we taped it. Now, she lets go of things and tries her best to walk all the time. She still smiles and laughs the whole time she is walking. I bet she thinks she is the only kid in the world that knows how to do it. I am proud of her.

To try or not to try, that is the question....

OK, so now that Cora is an almost one year old, I am having the baby blues again. I can't figure out if I really want/need a newborn or if I just miss Cora being a newborn. You really do suffer from pregnancy/labor and delivery/newborn days amnesia because if I think back to those days I think it wasn't really that bad. But if I think even HARDER, I remember that some of those days really sucked ass. I was so swollen and sore those last weeks and would cry when it was time to get out of bed because my joints were so sore from the 58 pounds of baby and fat that put on during those 9 months. Now labor, really wasn't that bad. It hurt. Don't get me wrong, but it was sooooooooo exciting and I had it pretty tearing, no stitches, just 2 roids. I was good to go. NOW, I do remember how I thought (after just 3 days home from the hospital) that the no-sleep wasn't that bad either. Then I remember just 2 days after I said that, the sleep deprivation hit me like a ton of bricks and that I was actually going to die from lack of sleep. But, it all passed and here I am with the question. Do I really want to put myself through all that crap again. Well, I know I don't want Cora to be an only child and I know I am not getting any younger, so the answer is, YES. Yes, I want to start trying. I am not saying I won't want to shoot myself in the foot during the whole process so I will have a hole in my foot as a reminder of the hell I put myself through, but I think it's time....My husband will be thrilled of all the baby making sex we are going to have. Let the fun begin!

I gave birth to a 9 pound 2 ounce baby girl

Um, the birth of my baby girl. I couldn’t wait!

• What events merited celebration?
Um, my baby girl being born and the fact that I pushed out a 9 pound baby girl without receiving even one single stitch. Yes, I am stretchy. Also, as big as I got with her (58 pound weight gain), I didn’t get ANY stretch marks. Again, I am stretchy.

• Did anyone close to you give birth?
Not including me? I guess I mentioned sister-in-law delivered a cute little 6 pound baby girl

Save money.

• What would you like to have in 2005 that you lacked in 2004?
Big boobs. It’s never going to happen....ah well.

• What date from 2004 will remain etched upon your memory?
Feb. 12th , 13th and 14th. The 12th was my due date, the 13th was the day my water broke and the 14th was the day my baby girl was born

I really can’t think of one at this moment.

• What did you do on your birthday, and how old were you?

To have won the lottery.

• Did you suffer illness or injury?

My labor and delivery nurse. I loved her. She was awesome. Also, my sweet daughter Cora.

Over and over again with my husband. I fell deeper in love with him during and after labor and delivery. He was perfect.

• What was your biggest achievement of the year?

• What was your biggest failure?
Ya know? I can’t think of anything. It was a great year!

• Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2004.
There is nothing more important in life than your family. Life is precious, embrace your loved ones, never miss a chance to tell someone you love them. Hug your baby, husband, wife, mother, father, brother, sister, every chance you get.

Oh brother!

That is my Grandma in the background. She is one of my most favorite women in the whole wide world!

Stylin' hats!

Cora had her first DeWeese Christmas gathering. It was crazy, as always. We all crammed into Grandma's apartment, ate too much food and played several games of Bingo. Bingo is a serious game at the DeWeese get togethers. We are out for blood so don't you dare try and Bingo more than once or you will suffer the consequences from those that have the sucky cards.

Cora and Hailey got a super cool COACH hat and mitten set from my super cool stylish cousin Jaymee. I am sure those little white poof balls on top are rabbit fur. They are THAT cool! THANKS JAYMEE!

Happy 10 months baby girl!

Today is Cora's 10 month birthday. I can't believe this time last year, I was big and pregnant waiting for 2 months go past so I could meet my baby girl. In 2 months she'll be a year old. She won't have to take formula anymore....yippee! She won't *have* to take a bottle anymore. My baby won't be a baby anymore. How sad is that? She is the sweetest thing ever.

I love it when she:

- gets SOO excited when I get home from work
- is sitting in her high chair and she sees me getting her cheerios out of the cabinet and she starts kicking her legs and holding out her arms, smiling the whole time
- only wants me to hold her in a crowd of people
- wants me to rock her to sleep
- laughs when she sees the cat
- wrinkles up her nose when she doesn't like something
- gets soo excited when she sees any kind of paper sitting with in her reach.
- loves her Daddy
- laughs when I kiss her nose
- crawls as fast as she can to get away from us when she is caught with paper and then shoves it in her mouth so we can't get it unless we do the finger sweep
- says Mama
- says Dada
- dances to her Learning table songs
- likes to eat my hair when I come home from work

I thoroughly enjoy being a mom. She has made my life a better place and I thank God for her every day!

I am a MOM

I am officially christened into Motherhood. Cora was up all night with the stomach flu. What a sad sight, seeing your little one throw up like that. What was so sad about it was she would get up on her hands and knees, puke and then turn her head to the side and try and lay right back down. Bless her heart. I would have to change out the towels, wipe off her mouth and *then* let her lay down. By about 5:00 am she was dry-heaving. It was pitiful. She would cry out after she would be breathless from the dry-puke. I prayed to God that he would take the flu from her and give it to me 10 times as bad. I am sure I am next.
