And baby makes.. a jealous toddler.

I knew it was inevitable. Our 21 month old is jealous of our newborn. It hasnt been as awful as it probably could be but its frustrating nonetheless. Hes had one meltdown and a few whiney spells. I have no clue how to deal with it other than giving him as much extra lovins as I can and trying to spend as much one on one time with him as I can but I see it getting worse before it gets better, and thats a scary thought. He has shown some random affection for her though but its few and far between..

Shes Heeeeere!

Lorelei Lea was born on 2.19.10 at 10:34pm weighing 6lb 11oz and measuring 20 inches long.
She made her arrival early with my water breaking as I was cleaning the kitchen at about 3:30 that afternoon.

Free is always good.

Who ever came up with Freecycle is a genius. The idea is to keep stuff out of landfills and reuse everything possible. People give and get just about everything imaginable. I needed a Verizon cell phone once because the battery in mine completely died. So I posted that I needed one, not really expecting anyone to cough one up, but someone emailed me about a week later saying they had one! It wasnt the same as mine, and they didnt have the charger, but luckily my charger actually worked with their phone. Total cost to me was picking it up. The website is!

Next Stop: Birth Controlville

Thats right. Once I pop our daughter out, they cant get me on BC fast enough. Im not saying I dont love my son to pieces and I have a hunch that Ill love our daughter all up too but this pregnancy hasnt been as easy as the first. Ive been at that odd time where you dont want to be pregnant anymore, yet you arent quite ready for a newborn. Im nearing 38 weeks so Im more prepared than I have been but I still look around at my very active little boy and wonder how in the world one gal can do it all.

Introductions please..

A great big welcome to my friends that I already know and an even bigger welcome to new friends stopping by. I may be biting off more than I can chew here, Ill be honest. I have a 21 month old son and am expecting our daughter in less than 3 weeks! I have tons of blogs archived at Myspace and you know I will be pulling from those if need be. If youve dropped by and dont know me Im a stay at home mama and housegirlfriend (soon to be Army wifey) currently living in Clarksville TN. I enjoy vintage finds and bargains in general and my perfect day would be filled with thrift stores, flea markets, garage sales and browsing etsy with no spending limit! Obviously thats a dream world so I try to save money any way I can for my family and Im looking for other like minded gals & mamas to share ideas with.
