Jalenas School Christmas Party!

So last week I went to Jalenas school X-mas party! Took the whole day off from work for 2 hours of fun! Here are some pics...

Jalena with her friends and a surprised look when Santa walked in!

She is getting soooo big!

Jalena and Santa!

Another surprised and excited look when she realized she was having donuts for breakfast!

WE She had a great time! And I'm sure enjoyed having her Mommy there the one who has no life and gets all excited for these kind of things, the annyoning Mom from the class who shows up for everything to take millions of pics!

Not Me! Monday

Here are some things I did not do!

I did not take the day off on Friday just to attend Jalenas Christmas party at school!
I did not finish Christmas shopping, wait I really did not!
I am not off tomorrow! Yay!
I am not offically addicted to "Blog Following"!
I am not having a blank mind as I do my not me!

I finally uploaded some pics from my camera! Enjoy!

Jalena and Santa!

Some of the many faces of Jalena! lol

Jalena and Kaylee at the Woodstock Festival (Arts and Crafts show)

Daddy and Mommy out on his birthday!

Yes, WE are JETS fans! lol

Hanging out at the park

I'm such a good Mommy helper since I do attend every holiday party!
Tomorrow Jalena has her Christmas party at school! And Santa is coming! And, yes I will be there! Of course I did not take off of work just to go to the 2 hour party, her teacher must think I'm such a good room Mommy, always attending all of the holiday parties to help, or maybe she thinks I'm annoying?!?! But at least I'm a cool Mom!

Not Me! Monday

I did not have a dream last night about meeting MckMama (IRL) and her MSC hit it off with my OSC! And so did we! I definetly did not do that, who would dream about a blogger?

I did not cook breakfast, and dinner yesterday! I did not burn any of it either! I definetly am not a good cook!

I did not take Jalena to look at X-mas lights last night, and get tears in my eyes as she stared and said " Oooooohhhhh".

I did not go to the mall yesterday all by myself! and feel bad that I didnt have my princess with me when I saw all the mommies and babies waiting in line to see Santa!

I still do not have to finish x-mas shopping!

Thats it! Have a great week!

I love how you call me "Mam".

I love how you know all your body parts, and squint your nose when I ask "where's your nose?".

I love how you call Grandma, "Gah!".

I love how you get so excited when you see your friends at school.

I love how you grab my hand when you want to show me something.

I love how you ask for crackers and grab a bowl right when we get home from school, everyday.

I love how you say "oooooohhhhhhh" when you see the Christmas lights.

I love how you love your daddy!

I love how you look just like him!

I love how you blow kisses when someone says "bye", or "I love you".

I love how you dance and throw your hands up when Beyonces song "Single ladies" comes on.

I love how you run and hide when you have something you know your not supposed to have.

I love how you yell "accccckkkkkk" at 3:00am to wake me up!

I love how you say hi to the princesses' on the shower curtain everyday before your bath.

I love how you love to go in your doll stroller, even though you are way too big for it!

I love how you pull the cats tail even though your not supposed to!

I love how you drink out of a juicebox with the straw! Even when your finished and squirt it everywhere!

I love how you run to your high chair when I tell you its time to eat!

I love how you play with your puzzles, and sit and pretend to read your books!

I love how your favoite song is "If your happy and you know it", and you follow around perfectly!

I love how you laugh when I ask you if you think you are funny!

I love you how you are.

I love being your Mommy!!

She missed her Mama!

Yesterday I had to work 12-10 pm, which means I took Jalena to school in the morning, and my mom picked her up and then put her to bed. Which means we did not get to see each other yesterday afternoon :-(

Well...she must of really really missed her mama! B/c I can not count how many times she was up last night..I am sooo sleep deprived. And I can't even tell you what it is that she wanted either..Finally it was 5:15 am, after being up for 45 minutes, I said this is not cool and put her in her crib and went in the other room to sleep.

She was fine, diaper was clean...full tummy...even had some Tylenol in case it was her teeth keeping her up.

Last night, I can' even explain how frustrated I was, actually annoyed is the word. I just wanted to sleep. This morning I am thinking about last night, as I sit here in my office struggling to stay awake..and definitely have my office door shut-too tired and not in the mood to greet everyone as they walk by!

But my feelings of annoyance and frustration are quickly turning to appreciation and gratitude. As much as I don't like my sleep interrupted-I am thankful that it is. Thankful for my baby girl. I think about the women out there that would love to have their sleep interrupted by a whining 13 month old..

I am so lucky to have my princess. I have truly been blessed. And realize in certain situations like this, I need to realize just how lucky I am.

-We did not win $185.67 on the 2 cent machine!
-I did not stay home all day Saturday counting down the hours to Jalenas Nap time! B/c I did not get home at 5:15am! and my precious daughter did not wake up @ 7:05 am! Of course not...becuase she knows its the weekend, and she always sleeps in...

-I did not just eat Mcdonalds for breakfast!

Not ME!

It's that time again!

I did not miss last weeks "Not me Monday" and have a sissy fit about it!
I did not just finish the apple pie from Thanksgiving, eating only the crumbles on top!
I did not take Jalena to the park on Sunday and have 10 anxiety attatcks when we were up in the treehouse! Never, because I am not a worry wart!
I did not turn 25 last week!
I am not obsessed with Christmas shopping for my princess, because she has NO toys!
I am not dreading work tomorrow...because I love my job!
I did not decide to start my diet again today, and most certainly did not fail when my friend at work ordered me an ET bagel with cream cheese..which I did NOT eat!
I did not say..."There's always tomorrow"!

I am not going to lay down now...I'm not tired!

That was NOT fun...I am NOT excited that I am going to click on publish post right now!

Its been a long 5 days off! Now back to work tomorrow! It was so nice just waking up and having nothing to do, not have to rush in the am to get J to school, rush to get to work, rush to pick her up....etc...On Wednesday I had an appt @ my Ob-Gyn office, and Got to see my midwife who I miss sooo much! Jalena definetly did not enjoy being there as much as I did! Then She went to school to enjoy her thanksgiving feast there! I enjoyed some me time-can't even remember what I did though! lol...

Jalena spent thanksgiving with her dad's family. She had a great time! I did miss her alot though!

Friday we went shopping for Black Friday! It was fun..I must say that Jalena was soooo good! Except for the time when I was changing her diaper in the bathroom of the Pizza place we stopped at for lunch..and she peed all over herself! My fault! lol

Saturday we went to chick-filet for breakfast then went to the park with my best friend and her beautiful daughter, Kaylee.

Today we just hung out at home, now back to the grind tomorrow! Jalena is talking so much now..trys to imitate everything that I say. Her new words this week are Gig-ga (for Giga the cat), crak-ka (For cracker), and Cer-cer (For soccer). She is always calling for her Mama, and wants to hold my hand to go everywhere! She is such a joy. Every day I fall more and more in love with her! Oh How I LOVE being a Mommy!!!

Da Da

So last night when I was feeding Jalena I realized she was making new noises, so I started saying Da-Da over and over again! She said it once, I ran to get my phone to record it, and I must of said Da-Da another hundred times, and she wouldnt do it. When I picked her up from school, her teacher said that she swore Jalena said Da-Da once today, then while at dinner tonight, she said it again!! Yaaayyy Jalena!!! We went to Cracker Barrel tonight, here are some pics. They have cute little rocking chairs outside and had to take some shots, but of course as I'm trying to get a good picture, the camera batteries die!
