Oscar the Grouch

Wilder loves watching Sesame Street on YouTube. At the present time, I most relate to Oscar the Grouch. Which is why you haven't seen me writing in awhile. I don't want to come across grouchy! My hormones are in full swing. Poor Shawn. One minute I am walking on Cloud Nine, the other minute I am in the pit of despair, thinking I'll be pregnant forever. I'm particularly frustrated at not being able to do all the things I want to do (sciatic nerve pain makes it difficult to walk), and having to turn over control to Shawn. And that takes from his time to complete projects that I can't do, like hanging some towel hooks in the bathroom so all our post-baby company has a place to hang towels...

I haven't been behind the camera much, either, but cabbaged onto some iPhone pics.
Hail resembled Sonic ice
The water always pools on our side of the street

Trial run to the hospital (think it took 45 mins because we needed gas, there was road construction, some kind of police block but I can't remember, a wrong turn...oh my)
W and I were well taken care of this week: three lunch playdates whereby I got to sit on my tush and just. watch/jabber.

This week, we rest. We do what we can do and we love each other a lot. I am not equipped for much else these days, but, hug and love on Wilder? That's easy!

I have a hard time imagining you grouchy! :) Hormones are so crazy and icky. I'm sorry you're having pain, too. Enjoy your little Wilder this week!

Nia and Brooke LOVE watching Big bird on you tube. Perhaps instead of identifying with Oscar, you could just call yourself Big bird. :)
I feel for you in all that pain. The last few weeks are HARD, let alone add nerve issues into the mix. Praying for you!
PS That pic of W and S is so fun.

Hang in there!

I remember when I was pregnant and I couldn't remember what it was like to NOT be pregnant.

Hormones suck.

If you have to be miserable & grumpy, at least it's for the very best reason. This too shall pass....HUGS

Yuck. Sorry about the pain and hormones.

But that hail... it does look like someone might have thrown out a bag of sonic ice. I've never seen hail look like that.
