Our little one

Here is our little peanut. This is our first photo at 10 weeks. I am so excited. I am even more excited because I felt so much better today. But as the evening went on I started to feel bad again. This pregnancy is playing tricks on me. I wish I could find out what the sex of the baby is already, I am dying to know!!! Mia says it's a boy, my hubby says it's a girl (hoping for that boy), Robert wants a boy, Ava doesn't know what is going on, and me well boy (but either way I will be so happy). Stay tuned for more details.

Lisa's Updates and stuff

Well I havent posted in a while because I have not been well and have been really trying to survive motherhood and pregnancy. Lizzie started Kindergarden , Abe turned 9 months and Sophie is just Sophie.
I am now 17 weeks pregnant and STILL sick but to no surprise . I am on home healthcare with Iv's and all. The last one I had in got infected so I had to have it out and a new one placed. Mind you this isnt a regular Iv it is much longer than the norm. The second one placed in the ER was so painful the doc pulled it out the same night. I have been in the Er 2 times the last week. Once because I passed out and the other for the infection. Needless to say my life is rough at the moment. I also am pretty much on my own with the kids because my husband works 7 days a week and really isnt home. I do get down sometimes because the few people I do know in AZ dont even come around and the rest of the family who would totally be there for me are so far away. I really want to move back closer to family and friends because when things are rough you can be there for each other. My husband has some family and I know a few people but it seems people choose to disapear when you are relaly really down and need them. IT is sad that people can be that way. I think if people knew what it was like the would understand it more. I have to say that through my whole pregnancy with Abe my neighbor helped me so much. Now she is pregnant and feeling really nauseated but I know I can count on her for anything. Of course she cant help clean my house or I cant help her right now but anything else we are cool.
Sorry I needed to vent and share. I think we all (including me) need to put ourselves in other peoples shoes and at least try to be there for each other when we can. The hard times are when it counts. Trying to feel someones pain. Trying to understand things that mabey you havent been through but someone else is going through. When I had postpartum depression it was nice to have someone listen like my sisters and sister in laws even though they had no idea what it was like. I had a few people who I tried to explain it to that didnt get it at all.
Well I think I went on enough. I need to put the little man down for a nap and try to sleep a while myself.

Some summer pictures

sorry forgot to turn the pic!

Is it nap time Mia, you look Grumpy.

Ava and her crazy hair

So I can't believe my hubby has been back to work and my son back to school going on two weeks now. I'm sad and happy at the same time. I love that the girls and I can get back on a routine, but since I feel horrible with my morning sickness(well all day sickness) I wish one of them was here to help me out. It is so hard for me right now. I love to get up and go, I love to clean and organize. But right now I can barely get up, eat, feed the girls, take my son to middle school, get the girls ready, do a few things around here and go pick him up again. On top of that he has football everyday. I so took advantage of my health. I miss feeling normal.
But to cheer up this post here are a few pictures of our summer activities. Enjoy. I will be back soon, and hopefully feeling better. -Vickie

Football season is just about here

Rob has a few more days of conditioning and then the pads come on.

My sweet Ava.

Silly Mia

As you all may know we are a football family. My hubby coaches and my son plays. We are super busy around this time of year. But I have come to love the sport. Last week was Rob's first practice. It went well. He is so excited for this season and that makes me happy. The girls also had a blast. Who wouldn't love a snack bar and a huge field to run around. Wish us luck this season. I need the men in my house in good moods the next 4 months. Bye for now.
