Well, Mycah is almost two. Her Birthday is on Feb. 25th but the terrible 2's are coming in full force. If you know Mycah at all, you'd know she's definitely moody enough as it is. Her big sister seems like a dream compared (or maybe I just don't remember). She seems to think that if she fusses...constantly...I'll serve her needs. What it really does, is make me throw a two year old fit right back at her. She hits (swats really). If you give her what she's having a fit for, she'll throw it right back at you. Time-outs work ok, but not great. She really just fusses...ALOT! Check it out.
Ok, so now with the Belly Blues. I'll be into my Second Trimester next week. Of course, being baby number three, I am definitely "showing". Only its the kind that looks like a pooch, not flat, and not prego. So one may just think you're a bit overweight in the middle. I wear Sweats constantly and can't seem to find anything cute to wear. I pulled out my maternity clothes, and wouldn't you know it...OUT OF STYLE!!! Two years old and all my maternity shirts are SHORTER than my EVERYDAY WEAR Shirts! So the other day I totally cheated and used the credit card to buy some sweaters. I'm not even close when it comes to the amount of maternity clothes I'm going to need throughout this pregnancy, but its a start. So just a warning to you Mothers who think your clothes will still be cute in a few years...THINK AGAIN! Maybe some will be good, but unless you have a baby at the exact same season as your last...just plan on replacing that wardrobe. Ok, Belly Blues number two....Vericose Veins! The day of the "Leaves" was the day I started to "feel them". As my second trimester thickens...so will the veins...and the constant ache that comes with them. I have the dumb support hose, but they itch and are very annoying to wear. So pray that I will be able to cope through the next 6 to 7 months.

So my little Mycah has decided that she is in an extra special bad mood today. Extremely grumpy and tired. She usually doesn't get her nap until 1:00...not today....lets try 10!! This whole time change has thrown off my kids a bit. Going to bed later, waking up earlier, not too fun. Anyway, this early nap has given Dejah and I some time to hang out. She really wanted to draw, and she wanted to try spelling her name. So for the first time EVER I got Dejah to try out writing her name. She doesn't have a ton of patience with it, but she did such a good job! I am so proud of her! She hasn't had any pre-schooling, and I never work with her, so I have just been hoping that when she goes to kindergarten next fall that she will catch on quick and do a good job. This little trial has given me some hope. I know alot of you moms out there have been doing pre-school, and your kids can probably already write their names, identify their letters and numbers, ect. but I was so excited to just see her try. I'm a proud mama.

I watched a clip of this protest, and as Glen Beck "forcasted", our church is now being labeled as and "extremest hate group". This made me sick. Check it out for yourself. You don't have to watch the whole thing, but you get the idea.
What baffles my mind is that these people are targeting the "Mormons" when there were so many others involved. We were being called a "cult" and "bigots" for standing up for marriage between One Man and One Woman. This proposition was supported by so many other religions and persons and I feel we are being unfairly targeted. To see a list of Prop 8 sponsors go to www.afterellen.com/node/39787
A Long time ago Larry King interviewed our former President of the Church Gordon B. Hinkley and asked him about our stance on Gay Marriage. Here it is.
I have listened many times to this man. He has preached nothing but good righteous principles. I know there are many out there who do not believe in my same beliefs, but that is ok. I do not judge them for it and call them names and rip them apart for it. I appreciate our differences and would hope they do the same. I am sorry that this is such a long Post, but I couldn't just sit back and keep quiet while so many others are speaking out against what I believe.
