Morning Tea

Madilyn has been waking up around 5:30/6:00 am. When Annette was here visiting a few weekends ago, I had to find something to do to keep Madilyn busy and in her room, for at least an hour (I can't have my guest waking up at such an unpleasant hour).

So we got fancy:

Fancy Madilyn
Fancy Mom (please excuse the morning hair, and lack of make-up)
*also please note, the tutu only fits around my neck*
~Also in attendance~
Fancy Daisy Duck
Fancy Mini Mouse
Fancy Marie
Hows that for a 6:00am morning tea?

It's been a while. Things are good.
We gave in and had to have air conditioning installed in our little home. 89 degrees is just to hot for inside. While that was happening we stayed with my parents, and it was almost like a little vacation. However I came home to a dusty/dirty house, an overgrown yard, and lots of things to put back in place.

We are excited for this next little one. I think we will name her Kira Jane Sumsion. Madilyn is excited to be a big sister. I'm excited to not have this inside me anymore. Is it terrible that I hate being pregnant? There's this thing inside me, making my bones hurt, giving me heartburn, increasing my resting body temperature at least 3 degrees, causing serious back pain...and I don't even get the benefits of hugging and kissing and loving it. That's ok right? I don't have to love being pregnant to be a good mom?

We've gone poo-poo on the poddy twice now! Woo-Hoo!!! It would be awesome to have this one out of diapers before the next one shows up.

And...our camera broke. We can't even get it to turn on...hence no photos today (although I don't think you'd want to see photos of my messy house, my uncomfortable body...or Madilyn poo-pooing). But I will have some fun ones to share as soon as I can get them off my camera.
