Brazil approves a massive new dam, makes Indians...
iheartchaos: Pictured above is Chief Raoni of the Kayapo tribe native to the Brazilian state of Pará, seen weeping after being delivered the news that newly elected Brazilian president Dilma Vana Rousseff approved the construction of the Belo Monte hydroelectric dam that will flood the homeland of over 40,000 indigenous people, forcing them to relocate.

When I learn someone is expecting their first...
The part of me that is not involved in that mostly excited is the part that thinks “yeahhh…have fun never sleeping again. If only you knew what is about to happen.” Then I realize I was that preggo that other moms thought that of!
P.S. Wolverine is a hottie
I have recently gained a ton of new mommy...
I love it. People to connect with! People that understand! People to help keep me sane! I don’t know if anyone will actually reply to this, but it is worth a shot. I want to know a bit about YOU. :) what is your name?! Where are you from, and how did you find me?
I should not watch stuff about ghost stories and...
I had something on. By the end of it Noah was passed out and I started to drift to sleep. My dream started to be evil, demonic feeling. No actual dream. It was still forming. But it was going to be bad. A few minutes later Noah woke screaming bloody murder from a nightmare he must have been having. As I slowly came to I had this feeling that a demon was saying something like “haha, see what...
Is it Ikea day?
I have seen two different posts from two different people that don’t follow each other mentioning Ikea. GRAWR BUY ME STUFF
I like to think it was the cereal that helped him sleep. If not, then that is just one mean coincidence. Thanks universe. I kept waking up expecting to feed him. He didn’t want it! My boobs were hard when I woke up! It was crazy!

nerdymama: sarahfromharrah: We should get married. Seriously. I would drive to KC just to meet you. I imagine you being like Jill and are able to speak my language. ;) I fully support this idea. Let’s be sister wives and Jill can love on our babies to cure her baby rabies and we can all live in a fabulous compound full of cool nerdy things, delicious baked goods and awesome chicks. This...

I am super defensive. And I hate it. I have tried to change that about me, but for the life of me have not succeeded. I’m defensive because I truly believe (though I love everyone) that most peoples true intentions are to be hurtful when they use words. This isn’t all the time. But I think most people always try to come off as better. This stems from my insecurities…and I think...
So, he slept 7 hours.
You are lying down next to your child. The room is dark and there is a light just barely bright enough for you to see his face. You’re staring at him as he is sound asleep. So wonderful. You close your eyes for a second. And when you open them again his eyes are wide open staring at you. No movement. Just total random wide eyed staring. It was soooo creepy.
Guess who did really well with his cereal
He ate a lot more than expected
Yes! These women are out for more than just a good sale. I think they’re obsessive. Saving money is great. But buying things you don’t need just because it is cheap or free pushes you to hoarder!
Just watched Extreme Couponing
The "Cry it Out" Method
I quote that because it is not to be confused with the Ferber Method. Though they have the same idea, the Ferber Method is much more gentle and Ferber has said that the intention of his method is to not force a child to cry while you walk away and listen to it all night. I knew before Noah was born that letting him cry it out was not how I wanted to roll to get him adjusted to his crib OR to...
P.S. he is MUCH better today
What motherhood means to me
After months of a baby learning to use his limbs, I JUST NOW noticed my upper body is where he has been resting them while feeding. Shoulder = foot rest Oh the things you get used to.
The depression has taken over tonight
I have done somewhat well lately without meds. I wish I had insurance. Then it would not be a problem.
Band of Horses - No One's Gonna Love You
This song is the only song that has continuously been able to lull Noah to sleep.
This will be long. With his first shots he got no fever and only fussed a few hours. This time…not so lucky. He was totally fine the ride home. He was fine once we got home. I thought we were good! Then last night his body temp started rising and he started crying. He doesn’t cry much, so for me that is automatically stressful. But it wasn’t bad. I put him to bed and he slept...
I am fighting tears
4 month shots experience not bad
4 month shot RESULT = OH MY GOD AWFUL

My nephew, Emery, is 3 years old
He has said “hi” to walls and has asked “who is that” pointing at an empty hallway. Every once in a while he will tell me “Noah thinks …blah blah blah” and will go on to tell me something that Noah MAY actually be thinking. But that is just a 3 year old for you. So when he just now started to say “Noah’s heart is bad” when talking about our trip to the doctor, I didn’t think anything of it....
FIRE. I want to go touch it– kid on the train to the two dumps with a flame we have gone by
Halfway there! This is my thought on the train so far. Awesome. Travel without the stresses of driving/traffic/OHMYGOD THAT CAR IS TOO FUCKING CLOSE/it has toilets already. It is a great way for a scenic view. It is peaceful. Negative side is that I definitely think this would be way cooler if I were to take this ride without Noah. Crying baby+sleepy train = not friendly people.
People say train rides are smooth
This one, my friends, is bumpier than boats I have been on.
Good news: my pre preggo shorts are not only fitting, but they are either perfect fit or loose! Bad news: my hair is falling out. Did anyone else start losing lots of hair after pregnancy? And my “lots” I mean, I see spots balding.
My heart is heavy for the Hamil family.
And for all the families that lost something or worse, someone. I could not imagine losing a child. But they lost two. Tornadoes…go away.
My little man is 4 months today
It is time to do night time diapers.
I woke up feeling great
Noah was all smiles when we woke this morning. Which is great. He even left a present in his diaper for me….which I’m sure made him feel great. I am a little reluctant to say this because I still woke when he squirmed, and soothed him occasionally. But he, by “medical definition” (some friends say that..haha), SLEPT THROUGH THE NIGHT. He did not wake to feed. He woke...
Truthful Tuesday (I almost forgot)
This one will be storm themed. I have seen many tornadoes. And lots of circulation. And I still dramatically freak out! And I still get the upset tummy run to the bathroom moments…like I was in high school when I was too shy to talk to boys. NERVES
The weatherman just said between Denton and Dallas no one is in the clear because new storms are popping up everywhere!
