I really need to stop disappearing....

Every time I blog, I thoroughly enjoy it. I tell myself that I WILL keep doing so regularly. Then I don't. I suspect pure laziness.

I am working on a blog to update you with life, but for now, wanted to tell you that I did create a separate blog for my surrogate journey. I felt I should use this one for mainly my life with Hubby and Cody and let the Surrogacy journey be separate. No promised that there won't be some spill over.

Here's the link:

love to you few that read me for staying around so long. xx

I've Been Slacking Again...


I've got some updates to catch everyone up on.

As for me: I am working full time again, after deciding that working part time just wasn't going to pay the bills I needed to pay. My husband has been having problems with his current employer, so he is going down to part time. Meaning he'll be spending more time with our son. A little bittersweet, really. More later.
I've been going through the motions to become a surrogate. I had an agency ready to take me on when my original Potential Intended Parents contacted me again, and informed me I was in the top two choice. Their fertility doctor is supposed to be calling me today. We'll see how that goes.

As For My Son: Cody will be 16 weeks old on Thursday. I have absolutely no idea where the time has gone. He is very independent most days and enjoys sitting by himself in his bumbo. chatting away at us and chewing on his hands. He's been teething since he was about 7 weeks, with no real process yet. The drooling keeps getting heavier and he still is toothless.He much prefers my husband over me. I think I'm boring mom who feeds and bathes him, and dad is he cool one that makes funny faces. In fact, when he's screaming with me, Glen can pick him up and he'll be just fine. I have days where it bothers me, but then in some ways it's kinda nice as well, as I'm able to go to work (which i enjoy) and then come back home to him, rather than have him all day. If that makes me a horrible mother, than so be it I guess.
His next doctors appointment is for his 4month shots, and it's on Valentine's day. So I'm not really looking forward to that. He was still sleeping a lot at two months when he got his first set, and now I think he'll be cranky all day.

Yesterday I had sort of a new experience. I learned to make home made laundry detergent. Which was nifty. I'm actually rather excited to go home and start a load of laundry to see how it works. It doesn't have nice scents in it, of course, but that is what fabric softener is for.

I have tons of pictures I keep meaning to post, and just haven't got around to it day. I promise. I don't know how new moms manage to blog/vlog, do all the housework, and take care of the baby. It seems to be an endless process.

Long Time No See

In reality, I guess it really hasn't been horribly long since I updated, but t sure feel like it. I've got a lot of exciting things to talk about and I'm not sure where to begin.

To start off, Glen and I have made the decision to surrogate for a family who is unable to have children. So now, I am playing the waiting game to see if their fertility clinic will accept me as the family already did. I'll update more about that later, as I find out more.

Cody turned 12 weeks old yesterday, and on Tuesday I officially went back to work. It's a little bitter sweet, but I am glad that I'm back. For now I'm only working part time, and my husband is watching Cody while I'm at work. Then, when I get home, he goes in.

Developmentally, I think Cody, of course, is a genius baby. As when we hold him up, he'll walk. My logical side knows mos babies his age probably do, but my mother side will only allow myself to think he is the only one...

He wears size 6mos clothes for the most part now, and I think he's probably arround 15 lbs. He is super solid. His next appointment is not until February, when he gets his 4mos shots. Not looking forward to that. We have been slowly weening him off his zantac and he seems to be doing really well! we still give him the heavier formula with rice starch in it as he keeps that down way better, and ifheis having a particularly spit-up-y day, we put a bit of ice cereal to make it just a bbit heavier.

Merry Christmas Eve!!

I haven't posted in a little while, but I here I am. I can't believe it's my baby's first xmas tomorrow :) I've wrapped all his presents, now I just have a present for a coworker to wrap, and to gifts to my husband from me. He's getting his "big present" the beginning of next year.

I've got some pies to bake too, but little Cody is being pretty demanding, so I'm not sure how well that's going to work out.... we'll see...

Glen surprised me and took me Christmas light looking last night, it was fun, but there wasn't a ton of people who decorated. Everyone seemed to bah humbug this year.


Well, I'm off for now... I've got lots to do. I promise to take a billion pictures tomorrow, and share the best ones..
