Holy Mothereffin Blizzard!!

I'm not sure if anyone watches the national weather but here in Minnesota on this lovely Saturday, we've accumulated about....oh I don't know.....17 inches or so of fuckin snow!!!  The wind is blowing so hard still that I'm pretty sure my patio door might blow the fuck which case we'd be screwed and there would a whole lot of snow up in this place!!

So because of this wonderous blizzard we've been stuck inside ALL day.  It was all cool and whatnot this morning, all cozy and shit.  We got up and made breakfast, played with Mees, made some cookies, layed on the couch, played on the computer, layed on the couch, played with Mees, didn't make dinner because of all the damn cookies we ate, layed on the couch, snuggled with the munchkin, contemplated punching Justin...only because by this time I've gone fricken stir crazy and it just seemed like something fun to do, put Mees to bed and then watched Inception....which I'm still completely confused by and somewhat pissed off at.  I don't like it when I can't figure shit out, so now I'm mad, even though I thought it was a really good movie....apparently I'm just not smart enough!!!

I did however take some pics today of Miss Girl makin some cookies.  Weird...I of Mia!!  Believe it or not though I've been slacking on the photo taking so I'm trying to step my game up!

Needless to say I'm hoping that tomorrow we can either find some sort of non food project...because I'm pretty sure I might vomit from all the mothereffin cookies or be able to get out of the house, even if just to Costco a couple of blocks away!  Because if we don' may want to say a prayer for my poor husband because I may go ballistic!!!!  Happy snow blowing!!!

14 Months and every bit the MONSTER!

I feel like an asshole because I'm like 2 days behind on your monthly post which is totally not like me because I have serious OCD type issues that usually don't allow me to miss things like this.....but I did and I'm totally calling myself out on it.  But enough about me....lets talk about your monster little ass!!!

This last month has brought on a whole new level of diva!!!!  You. Are. A. Beast!!!!!  A cute little midget beast but a beast nontheless!  Remember all that talk about ZERO patience and temper issues???  Well that has significantly increased!!  It makes me a little nervous because when you get frustrated you tend to chuck things or fists...whatever works for you at the moment.  I'm trying to figure out how to redirect your frustrations and teach that hitting really isn't the way to go....especially when you hit mommy and daddy.....remember we are the ones that feed need to be nice!  I know you are trying to figure out this whole big world around you so we do what we do and just hope that you won't grow up to be a total Asshole!

These two little peoples....right above here....are your most bestest peeps!  You three are a fricken hoot....there are times you play well together and then there are the times where you whack Belle in the head (remember we need to work on that whole not being an Asshole thing) and shove Carter out of your "bubble".  But the fact that you three have each other is truly a wonderful blessing!

You still think that you can run better than walk and let me tell you....that's not really the case.  You don't look like a drunk frankenstein too much anymore but it's funny because you totally walk like your dad.  It's hard to explain it but you just do and anyone who knows you and your dad can totally understand.  You love to be chased and I'm hoping that will give mommy a smaller ass!

We have our routines.  Our bedtime routine is pretty set and is very ritualistic.  You start with your nightly cocktail of warm milk in a bottle on the couch with mommy and your blankie (unless daddy steals you and in that case mommy wants to kick him in his biscuit because.. thats our time dammit!) and then we sit and snuggle for a little bit.  Then we have to get up and you make sure that dad is right behind us....we have to go look at all the pictures on the wall in the hallway and you point and say "Whosssattt" when the majority of the pics are of you!  Then you get all tucked in with your seahorse and blankies and get mucho kisses and sweet dreams and then it's time for mommy and daddy to Just.....SIT!!!  I love that you know that this is what we do...and the fact that you go down so easily makes life much nicer for mom and dad!

You are starting to talk obviously have your own vocabulary but your communication and understanding of more things is growing every day.  I try to continuously talk to you and explain things that we are doing so you get the concept of different things.

You are a total vulture!!!!  You LOVE to mooch food off of whoever is around!  Totally your mom!!!  I'm just grateful that you like to try things.  And we know right away if you don't like something because that shit comes right back out.  You have found it to be real funny to start throwing your food and flinging it and spitting it out.  You also hoard food in your chubby little cheeks.  I still get yelled at for cutting your food up smaller than what you may expect but you are a HOARDER and...well....thats just what I'm gonna do until you eat your food!

You are quite the character and I love watching you start to explore things more and get more comfortable with yourself and others.  Your massive meltdowns (like we are experiencing as I write this) could be fewer but I guess that's what makes you YOU!!  And I love you more than you could ever imagine!!!

Mr. and Mrs. Baby Sister

On November 20th my baby sister became a big girl and got herself all married and shit!  It's so weird to me now that we are both married and have kids and are total grown ups and have grown up responsibilities and titles and whatnot!  
I can honestly say that that day might have been one of the funnest days EVER!  I may have even had more fun at her wedding than I did at my own.  It could have been because nobody got maced or arrested!!  Please refer to my beautiful wedding post!  Or maybe it was the fact that we didn't have all the pressure of being the bride and groom yet we got to dress up and be a whole big part of the entire thing.  Or maybe because it was just a fuckin good time!!!
The whole day was beautiful!  My sister was beyond beautiful.  Everything was just perfect!  I don't have a ton of photos but I'll share a few!
Me and the hubs all snazzied up!
The Bride's people!
Mr. and the Mrs.
Me and the cutest dad of ALL time!
Mom and big sis.
This was the beginning to the end of my dear dear sister here!
Beautiful Bride!
The Ladies!!!  
First Dance

We partied the shit out of that night!
This picture pretty much sums of the night!!!

So much fun had by all!!!  Natalie is already planning their five year vow renewal party!!!  I'm thinking Justin and I are totally going to have to do that too!

A Monster has eaten my Child!

Apparently when little midget girls hit a year they morph into this walking, sorta talking, monster of a little being!!!  Little Miss Mees has most definitely been giving Justin and I a run for our money lately!  She is a M.O.N.S.T.E.R (a really cute monster though!).
Her personality/attitude is most definitely starting to shine through and most of the time it cracks me up but there is that small part of the time that makes me want to drink 2 bottles of wine, take 3 vicodin and maybe throw a couple of xanax in there with it!!
The temper tantrums have started!  We've started hitting!  We scream if books are not immediately acknowledged and read... at which point they get chucked....sometimes directly at us!  We have become a much pickier eater and really enjoy throwing our food ALL over the fuckin place!  When we do eat we like to shove massive amounts into our mouth and then when told to NOT do it we spit that shit all over the place!
On the flip side of all this small not really so significant naughtiness that girl can make my day in an instant!   Her smile is contagious and I would not change one thing about her crazy, diva, impatient little self!

The Month After One! apparently when I told Time to slow the hell didn't really want to listen to this mommy!  This month, after One, seems to have gone even faster than the rest.  Which I didn't really think was possible but let me tell you....IT IS!

This month has been crazy!  Crazy busy and crazy huge milestones that you have reached!  Lets start with the fact that are now a walker!!!  Well more like a drunk little frankenstein midget with 5 teeth and your little pebbles pony!!!  It blows my mind how one day you are scaling furniture, the next you are taking two steps on your own and now you think you are a fuckin olympian training for the 2012 track team!  You have so much fall... you get right back up....and God help us if we try to help you.  Oh hell are quite the independent little lady when it comes to certain things and that is one of them.  You're not one for us holding your hand...unless we make it into some kind of game where mom and dad look like two total asshats skipping around with a midget!
 You are quite the character!!  Your personality comes through more and more every day!  You are your mother....and Lord help your father for that because I'm an Asshole!  You have a horrible temper and get so fricken pissed when something doesn't work for you and you have ZERO patience.  You scream when you can't get a toy out of the toy box, you scream when you can't fit the square block into the round hole, you sream when we don't let you DO IT YOURSELF!  You like to figure it out by yourself yet if you don't within 2.2 seconds you freak the fuck out and one of us better be there to help your independent little ass out! 
You love to play with the kids at daycare and with Carter and Belle but you also like your space.  You play well on your own and don't really care for people all up in your business....unless you are in the mood!  You haven't quite gotten the grasp of sharing but you have gotten the grasp of hitting!  I was imformed by Stacy a couple of weeks ago that you got into a bitch fight at daycare with Mackenzie in the sand box.  You both wanted the same toy and the two of your were slapping your hands in the air at each other!!  I actually found it quite amusing!!!  You do need to learn how to share though but I'm glad that you can hold your own....I just don't want phone calls that you've beaten the shit out of someone! 
Brown Bear has reared it's ugly head again!  I swear to shit that one of these days I'll have the courage to hide that fricken book from you but right now I feel it's way to cruel....even though if I have to read that fuckin book one more time I might....just might....lose my ever lovin mind!  I am greatful though that you've gotten so interested in your books.  You've always liked us to read to you and then 30 seconds later you had enough.  Now you go into your bedroom and pull all the books off your bookshelf, scream at us and pretty much chuck the book at us and then back your little behind into our laps and wait for us to read.  This usually consists of you hollering if we don't do it fast enough or you trying to turn the pages before we even have the first words read.  Putting my hatred of Brown Bear aside I love that you come and snuggle yourself right in with your blankie and your book. 

You are officially off of formula now and on to whole milk which is nice and cheaper!  Except it's a little harder to haul milk around then some powder?!  You are still ridiculously attached to your bottle and I'm starting to worry a little because I don't see an end to it any time soon.  You drink out of your sippys but not a ton.  We'll put milk in the sippy for you but oh no...that shit don't fool want your bahboo!  We keep trying though so hopefully. 

You amaze me on a daily basis and totally keep dad and I on our toes!  It's so much fun to watch you do all these new things and see the look on your face when you accomplish them on your own!  It's going to be another crazy month ahead of us and I can't wait to see what's in store for us then.  And I promise I'll take more pictures this next month.  October was really lacking and I'm not to happy with myself!  Love you baby girl!!

Better Late than Never....I guess!

I'm making some new goals for myself.....I need to start fricken writing again.  I miss it but I just can't seem to get myself to type the words!  So....I'm going to start small and make this post mostly photos....but they are of Mee's first birthday so all is good!

The munchkin's birthday was on a Thursday (at the beginning of this month....hence the better late than never!) so Justin and I had our parents over for dinner and cake.  I made a f'in DELICIOUS meal!!!  We had a little flank steak topped with a garlic tomato mixture, roasted red potatos, asparagus and mushrooms and some good crusty bread! was amazing! 

First Birthday Family Photo!

A Girl and her Daddy!
Her Barbie Cake before the Barbie masacre of Twenty Ten!
And here we go!
She was a MESS!!! 

As was our table!!  That shit took us about 20 minutes to clean. 
So that was her actual birthday. Her big party was planned for Saturday. Well....Mia's dumb ass mom decided to make her one year check up appointment for Friday and we all know that that means shots. my lovely kid who has never had a problem with shots before decided to have a bad reaction to them and woke up late Friday night covered in her barf. Which ended up as a long ass night for mom and Mees. I felt HORRIBLE!  So needless to say she was absolutely miserable for her first birthday party.  My mom kept telling me that she wouldn't remember and blah blah blah.....well mom....I'll fuckin remember and I was devastated.  She's only going to get ONE first birthday party and I f'd it all up! 
She did have a couple of good moments....more shitty ones that good though!
Her Giant cupcake cake that Grandma made for her that mommy and daddy ended up eating the shit out of!

One of many melt downs!

Tractor ride with daddy!

And we are spent....chillin with Antie B.

So there we have Miss Mia's first birthday festivities in a nut shell.  Hopefully next year we can enjoy it all!

Today....You are ONE!

One year ago today you came into this world and changed my life forever!  You gave me meaning and purpose, you opened up this whole other part of my heart that I didn't know was there.  You made me realize that you are the reason that I'm here. 
This last month has been crazy....crazy busy and...well...just plain crazy:
* You have already started throwing little mini temper are completely over dramatic....not quite sure where you get that from!!( I will take full responsibility but that will be our secret!). 
*  You have taken a few steps by yourself.  We try to help you and you want nothing to do with us.  You obviously want to do it on your own.  One day soon you are just going to take off....for now though you are a fast little shit and get to where you need to go by crawling. 
*  It's funny because you are so independent when it comes to certain things and certain situations yet you are completely attached to my ass the other part of the time.  You are fine with other people as long as you don't see me or know I'm there.  This has made mommy's left arm muscle very disproportionate to the rest of her body!
*  You LOVE being outside!  You love to swing on the swings over at Antie's and would spend all your time out there if we let you.
*  You are a total chatter box.  Your new word is baboo for bottle.  You got that from Belle Boo....that's what she calls her bottle.  You are starting to recognize words and what they are related too. 
*  You are still obsessed with the phone and are constantly "talking" on it. 
*  You have graduated to your big girl car seat....we switched them out this last weekend.  It makes me a little sad but it's nice not breaking my back everyday lugging that damn carrier around!
*  We are trying to get you to drink out of your sippys more but you are still a total bottle baby....when you do drink out of them you usually make a game of it and spit your shit everywhere!
*  You follow your uncle Joey around EVERYWHERE.
*  You destroy most everything!
*  You are a dancing fool....can't wait til we can get you into dance class! 
*  You are a total diva and have absolutely ZERO patience. idea where that shit comes from!
*  You can make me smile one minute and make me want to rip out every hair on my head the next!
*  You have a horrible this moment you are screaming and flinging yourself into the if the ottoman did something horrible to you!  It did nothing to you!
*  You weigh 21.2 pounds and are 28 1/4 inches long which puts you in the 50th percentile for both....your head is another story....apparently you are in the 90th percentile for your big ass head.  I don't think you have a big head....and if you do it's only because you are already a genius!!

This last year has been amazing!  It's been the best most hardest year of my life and I wouldn't change it for the world.  You have brought me more joy than I could have ever imagined.
Happy First Birthday Mia Lou!  We love you more than you could ever know!

Old Saggy Balls!

I've been a horrible blogger the last month or two and I have no good excuse except we've been crazy busy and by the time I have time to write I just want to lay!!  I have no idea what's going on in this whole other world of mine....I feel a little lost and it's totally my fault.  I'm hoping to get back to my "other" family here real soon....slowly but surely!

Onward to the whole saggy balls husband turned THIRTY!! last Friday (we haven't gotten to the whole saggy situation yet but rumor has it, things start to go south once thirty hits.....I can hardly wait to see what happens to me!!!)  And me being the horrible wife that I am did not to a birthday post for him yet. it is. 
I decided to throw him a surprise party which was not so much a surprise when I found out that one of the invites got returned due to wrong address and Justin decided to open that shit and saw a big blue sheet that said SURPRISE!!  Really right now??  Oh well....I tried!!!  So a whole lot of my family showed up and not a whole lot of his did....they are all on my shit list right other post, and his good friends showed up.  Which now I'm wishing they didn't because instead of partying like he was 30 he partied like he was fuckin 21.  We don't go out much anymore and so one would think to not drink like we go out every weekend.  NOPE.....that most definitely didn't happen.  There were shots being had and more shots after that.  Soooo, by about 10:30....he was DONE!  And when I say done I mean vomitting excessive amounts over the railing outside.  And me being the fabulous wife that I am didn't want anything to do with that shit!!!  I got one baby at home to take care of, I don't need another.  So I made asked Justin's cousin Brad to take him home in his truck because he ain't pukin in my car!  Plus we wanted to stay and party....shit I had a babysitter.  But once I saw that he could barely get his drunk ass in the car I decided I didn't want to come home and find him face down in the hallway or hanging over Mia's crib!! 
Needless to say he made it home alive and didn't puke in my bed.  He was a big pile of shit on Saturday and did absolutely NOTHING.  Which is fine with me....I'm going to be pretty depressed when I turn 30 and probably a big pile of shit myself!! 
Happy Birthday Lover, Love you even though you can't handle your booze anymore!!!
