Baby McInerney 2 come

Dear Baby,

We are so excited to have you in our life...This is our 36th week together and soon our time apart will be coming to a close and we will meet face to face. I'm looking forward to every labor experience with you. I hope to have you in the birthing tub so that you can ease into this world relaxed and refreshed. I can't wait to hold you and kiss you and tell you how much I love you. I feel you moving even now and I know that soon it will be time.

Your mommy,

True Confessions of a Stay at home pregnant mom

Rayna this article is for you...you inspired me!!!

1. I play on Farm Town on facebook during every nap session Julia has!!! Of course I make sure the house is clean first (eeeek!)

2. Taking a shower is a huge luxury to me...in fact it is the only time I am by myself and I make sure I take long showers because I know John is playing with Julia, and I am just trying to help them bond. LOL

3. I drink coffee and Coke Cola and Sprite...and I'm pregnant...I can't help it...I love caffeine...I love sugar!!!

4. I hate any mommy advice from anyone...I take it very personal I guess I feel like I know I'm not a perfect mom but I am doing the best I can and so I really don't appreciate someone else telling me how I should do something, besides, I know Julia better than anyone!

5. In the middle of the night if Julia cries I get mad at John if he sleeps through it but on the other hand I get mad at him if he asks me should he get her because I'm trying to sleep so why is he waking me up to have a discussion about it! Basically, he can't win! Poor guy!

6. I've gained 30lbs with this pregnancy and Julia weighs about 25lbs so when I have to carry all 55 of this extra weight, I am always out of breath and I feel so out of shape!

7. I haven't given Julia vegetables in a long time... a few weeks maybe...I try to make well balanced meals, but now that I'm this pregnant we have been having lots of pasta, pizza, and don't tell John, fast food!! Fast food is a curse word in our house (Julia had a chicken nugget today...and loved it!)

5 Sure Ways to Upset a Pregnant Woman

Okay, so pregnant people are sensitive and hormonal...but not all non-pregnant people are very understanding of this and just this past Sunday at church I had really watch my words and actions because I almost punched a few people and said a few things I might have regretted if it were not for my amazing husband. I wouldn't want to lose my christian testimony. So, for all you people out there who have said something they regretted to a pregnant person here are 10 things you can be sure will upset her...

1. Reach out and rub her belly without asking (would you want someone to do that to you?) Just because we have a baby in there doesn't mean we want just anybody touching our bodies....I mean it is hard enough slowly losing your figure, and having this baby take over, but to have Joe Schmoe come over and touch your body is just not appropriate.

2. Be sure to ask her when she is due and state, "Because it looks like that baby could come any moment!" Okay, another sure way to make this mommy to be feel insecure about her growing belly bump, who are you to just say whatever you want about someone else's body. If you want to say something, say, "How are you feeling?" "You look great!" "How can I help you?"

3. Make comments like, "Whoa!" "Oh my!" "Are you sure there aren't twins in there!" This is definitely a sure way to boost mommy's ego.

4. Tell her you can tell she is having a boy or a girl by the shape of her body. Look, none of you out there can predict the sex of my baby, so please, please, please stop trying...it only makes us feel annoyed that you think you know more about our body, and God's plan for our family. Keep your predictions to yourself!

5. Tell her you know she is having a boy because her belly is all baby, or you know she is having a girl because the baby stole your beauty because your nose got bigger, lips got bigger, butt got smaller....PUH LEASE...Stop looking at our bodies and just for once put yourself in our shoes. Can you imagine gaining 30lbs in 9 months? Can you imagine not being able to sleep at night? Can you imagine having to go to the bathroom ALL the time? Can you imagine someone kicking you from the inside whenever they want? Being pregnant is a beautiful, emotional, spiritual, thing and people can really ruin the joy of the experience by being insensitive.

So do me a favor? Leave me alone... don't stare at my belly, don't touch my belly, don't mention my belly, in fact why not just say..."Hey Kristi, what's new?"

Mother's Day

Today I woke up at 6:30 like most mornings, at the sound of Paris whining to go outside and Julia singing in her crib...I lightly closed John's mouth, snoring again, and he turned over.

He eventually got up a few minutes later and brought Julia in the bed with me while he took care of Paris...this is our morning routine. Then he brought up her soy milk and said he needed to quickly run to the store for some minor ingredients!!!

He came back with fresh pastries, a beautiful plant called Orange Star, so pretty, and bacon!!! We had our English breakfast...goat cheese, fruit, pastries, boiled eggs and bacon...mmmm delicious. Happy Mother's Day to me!!!

I have a great husband.

May 5, 2009

Today was so rainy and dreary...we had Ladies Bible Study from 9:30-11:30. Julia had fun playing with Jaclyn in the nursery while the Haines girls took care of them. Julia is such a happy go lucky kid, she doesn't cry when I leave or anything, just plays with whoever is ready and willing. It makes going places much easier.

Then we went to Baby Gap and Salsaritas's for some Latin American food, I mean it is Cinco de Mayo!!! We had some soft tacos and freshly made chips and salsa....well that's what John and I ate, Julia was happy with a peach yogurt!

Then Julia and I played some downstairs and she took her 2:00 nap. John left for work and I napped and watched the movie The Vanishing with Sandra Bullock. At 3:15 I woke up Julia so that we could get ready to go to Debi's house for our prayer time. I had to stop at CVS to get some wrapping paper for Alice's wedding gifts, Debi was hiding them for me.

We got to Debi's at 4pm and stayed til 6pm...Eric was there and it was fun to see him interact with Julia...he says she looks just like her daddy, which is true.

Then I headed to AP and this was one of the highlights of my day, at the register the woman and I were talking about kids and how she has twins and how she didn't start to enjoy motherhood til they were 3 (jeez louise I thought) I told her that the Lord would help me. I told her that I was 8 1/2 months pregnant and she said, wow you are tiny!!! I haven't been called tiny in a LONG time...so it made my day....now granted she was pregnant with twins at one point and was probably a lot bigger than me and so comparatively I am tiny, but in reality I feel like the mother of all HIPPOS! LOL
