Sleeping Under the Sea...

I was feeling a little yucky yesterday.   You know, one of those days where you feel like you're "trying" to get sick and your hanging on the edge.  Well that was me and my Sunday.  So needless to say, I didn't get a lot accomplished.  I did dredge through load after load of laundry and sink after sink full of dishes while taking nice BIG breaks throughout to be with the littles.

Though my day wasn't the best ever, my sweet little Ella Hope ended it perfectly. She must have known I needed to relax. Maybe she felt my yuckiness.  I'm not sure what it was exactly but she nailed it when she brought her brothers new Cloud.B sea turtle to me last night.  WOW... it was just what I needed.  So peaceful and tranquil. The perfect ending to a yucky funky kind of day. I was all smiles, she was all smiles, and baby Addie was amazed with the ocean waves on the ceiling.

If you've never experienced Cloud.B products, you should definitely check them out. Not just for your young children, but for your older ones and maybe even yourself!  They are so well made and the sound and display quality is outstanding. We have two Cloud.B turtles now and love them both for different reasons. I really like Ethan's new sea turtle because of the "wave" like pattern it displays on the ceiling. It projection is a beautiful shade of blue and it actually flows back and forth just like ocean waves.  This little turtle soothes you through your senses via music, waves, or a combination of both.  It's the perfect combination, trust me!

For those who are interested, I did a quick search and it looks like QVC has the Tranquil Turtle Light & Sound Plush Night Light available in either aqua or purple for 31.12 right now!  That's an awesome price and cheaper than most retailers I've seen.  Their shipping cost is 6.22.  Not a bad deal!  I may need to order another one of these little guys for myself... 

Here's a little video of our ocean last night.  It's not the best video, but it gives you a good idea of the images and motion that the turtle projects.  So neat!

To Feel Needed..

I spend each and every day from sun up till sun down and many times through the night holding, loving, and providing for my littles.  We seem to spend a lot of time rushing around trying to get here and there or simply trying to maintain the "clean path" in our home during the day.  As each day comes to an end, we are all tired and sometimes irritated.  I strive to make it through each day with a smile on my face and I SO look forward to my alone time at night.  If my hubby is home, I usually get about 5 - 10 minutes of me time to do what I need to do before bed.  Though I love this time, my children aren't always fond of it... 

Tonight, I changed my clothes, washed my face, and brushed my teeth to the sound of little tears.  Addie cried and moaned almost the whole time I was in the bathroom.  I knew she was fine with her Daddy but my heart began to swell quickly with thoughts.  Thoughts about her, and her sweet face.  Thoughts about what might be going through her mind...  So, like all Moms do, I rushed through my "me" time to get to Adeline.  

I walked in to the family room to see her little eyes squenched and full of tears.  As I stood beside her staring at her sweet trembling lips, she peeked at me from one eye and slowly began to grin.  She was happy to see me, I was happy to see her, and for whatever reason tonight, I could tell... she needed me.  

You know, that's a wonderful feeling, a feeling you don't ever want to forget, and one that will be cherished for years to come.  It's the small things in life that mean the most...

30 Days
As of today, we're down to 39 days till baby girl arrives!  We are SO excited, but a little stressed at the same time.  I've got lots to do still in a very short amount of time!  Ughhh...

LOTS of doctor appointments lately!  LOTS...  I'll have to share that fun little story with you as well.  My appointments have kept me super busy lately driving back and forth but... the extra ultrasounds and sneak peaks of the babe have surely helped out a lot!  

Her nursery is coming along slowly...  I'll post a few pictures and links to some of the items I've purchased recently for her room soon.  I'm so hoping it will come together just like I have envisioned it.  Fingers crossed!!!
