Guess what?

Guess what Eleanor knows. She knows the names of Woody, Buzz, Jessie, BullsEye, Lotso, Big Baby etc etc... She calls Woody-Buddy. It's kind of funny. What is not funny is how many times a day she wants to watch them. I shouldn't say how many times, but how much of her waking hours she wants to spend watching Toy Story 2 or 3. I'd say about 97%. And lately I've been letting her. I've also been letting her eat fruit snacks on end, all the marshmallows from the Lucky Charms, pretzels by the handful and sippy after sippy of juice not mixed with water.

Parent of the year folks.

Why am I doing such a bang up job? Well, she and Clayton have colds, so if she eats anything lately, it's a win. Oh, and I'm pregnant. So my ability to perform most of my tasks is hampered by a longing to spend time with my face pressed against the cold (sanitized) side of the toilet. Thought you might like to know.

Things that I no longer want to do:
Eat, but wait, I'm starving. Oh, bad idea.
Yard work
Blogging (you are welcome)
Calling duties (sorry Primary children)
Waking before noon
Grocery shopping (it's a nightmare)
Making breakfast, lunch or dinner (poor Clayton)
showering (I know, this is getting awesome)

Basically, you name it and I have nothing but lethargy for it. I've been pretty good in not letting my house go, but I need to be better. Yesterday I got to hear the heart beat, and I am past 10 weeks so I am hoping there is no miscarrying this time. As sick as I have been, I think it should be ok. We are due on June 11th. We will be finding out the gender at the end of December, early January if I can get a hold of that lady that does gender ultrasounds for cash in Provo. (Sweetest deal ever. $36!)

Are you all excited for Marianne's pregnancy complaints part two? Yaaaay! I know! My complaining is super fun to read about, as you might remember with Eleanor. Start making your baby name lists, people!

Oooo!!!! I'm so excited. As I have already told you! ha. Just had to let you know that I am also "enjoying" the countless time we are watching Toy Story 3. It's actually on right now. But I'm liking it because I pass out on the couch while Lauren watches it. It's my nap time and I love it! Anywho.....hope you get feeling better and that when you're in UT you aren't too sick to hang out! We HAVE to see you guys. It's a must. ;)

I believe, as the mother of three non-stop movie watching un-watered juice drinking sickos that I take claim to the bad mom award. I'm up on you times three. Go us. Seriously, once winter sicknesses start it is basically a veg movie marathon -- I'm pretty sure we've already watched more PBS and movies than we did the WHOLE DANG SUMMER. Hooray for winter.
AND >>>>> Congratulations on your pregnancy!!! Really hoping it goes smoothly for you :)

Holy Crap--Best NEws EVER!! Congrats! You have made my day so exciting :)

All I can say about E watching TV and eating whatever is at least you have a reason. I got none, but guilt.

Darin and Shannon said...

YAY!!! congrats!!!! I feel your pain though, im 14 weeks and have been totally miserable! Marlee watches Elmo all day long!! Well I hope you start to feel better soon!!!!!

Sara said...

Congratulations! So happy for you.

Beckie said...

Congrats Marianne!! You make cute babies!! lol

Tiff said...

CONGRATULATIONS!!! So sorry you're feeling lousy, but what a great reason to feel lousy!!

leigh said...

yay! prego! i'm excited. and i've got lots of girl names on my list. well - lots of boy names too.

and doesn't it suck not wanting to do anything, you just feel guilty. and it's never quite enough to feel like you're creating a human. i still feel totally useless, but i'm hoping to feel normal very soon. we'll see.

Charlotte said...

Congratulations!!! I'm so happy for you. Let E watch all the Toy Story she wants--and don't say "Poor Clayton." He'll never know what morning sickness is. Unless I have my way in the next life, when men will be pregnant and have periods.

alison said...

Super big congratulations, Marianne!! It's just crazy how tired one teeny, tiny little thing makes a person, isn't it?? Hope you get feeling better soon!! (And Gabe is totally in love with Toy Story & calls Woody Buddy, too. I'll have to rewatch it to see why that is.)

Allison Hansen said...

EEEEK! Joyful clapping and silly jumping up and down!

Bob, Emily, Ellie, and Kate said...

Wahoo! So excited for you. Seriously told Bob the other day that I thought you were probably pregnant. And here you are!!!! So happy for you. I hope you start feeling better. Another Eleanor. I am already drooling...

Azúcar said...

Hooray! Congrats! We're in this together! Yours is due a little before mine. Did I tell you about the naps? There are a lot of naps around here.

Lisa and company said...

I almost sent you a message the other day to ask you if you were ready for another one!
I am so excited for you because Eleanor is seriously the cutest thing ever born and I can't wait to see/read about another adorable addition to your family.
Hope you are feeling better soon!!!

Jamie said...

Yay!!! I'm so excited for you! Someone else to complain about pregnancy with ;) I've opted to not give my children Toy Story 3 until Christmas to spare myself from the misery...I'm thinking it will keep them occupied while me and the new baby hang out. :) And hey, if you can get your kid to eat, I say let them eat. It's a struggle at our house with our little Ethiopian (Cohen) to get anything down him so sometimes sugar based foods are the way to go. Anyway... congrats again!

Sky and Laurie said...

Oh my gosh..... I just watched Eleanor and was just talking to you and clayton. I had NO idea you were pregnant. Congratulations! I am so excited for you guys.

Marianne, I love reading your blog. I can totaly hear your voice in my head spouting off every word! You write like you talk and that is so awesome.

So...hope you feel better soon. And about Primary, you are awesome at your calling and the kids love you. No worries!

Enjoy your break in Utah, and hopefully you'll come back with plenty of names for your little babe.

Toy Story Rules and how handy that she at least picked one that has sequels! Let everything else go, including the stress and guilt of letting it go ~ it just comes back when you clean it up anyway! Love you!

Totally Awesome! I'll start my name list - can't wait to see you SOON! We can totally do Hallmarks with like ginger ale or something instead of smelly real food:0). You are a RAD Mom and How lucky your children are to have you. You are a friend to your kiddos and I know that Clayton picked a good one when he chose you! Love you!
