The sexy bracelet that is saving my life!

Okay, so maybe gray, cotton, slightly eighties wristbands are not quite sexy... but they are fantastic for morning sickness! Thanks to my sister in law for telling me about these. Esentially, it is just accupressure (pressure on a certain point on your wrist) with zero medication or side effects. Why this pressure helps with morning sickness, I don't know. But if it helps and it is harmless, I do not care!
Though I am still pretty nauseous at times, these babies have really eased the sickness and helped me function.
If only they would come in a wider range of colors...

Good thing I have a comfy couch

Truthfully, I have had no energy to post. Morning sickness (that lasts all DAY) seems to get worse for me with every pregnancy. Does anyone have ideas on things to do with your kids while you are lying on the couch? (: That does not involve TV? Believe me, we've played that card a little too much.

I just have to post to say I love my babies. I know they are not babies but they have been so patient with me and understanding while I am out of commission. Mase gets cereal for the two of them in the morning and then comes in and kisses my cheek and says "Have a nice sleep" while I am still in bed. I have tried to tell them that having a baby in your tummy makes you sick and tired and they actually seem to understand. Ava and I were lying on the couch when it was almost bedtime and she said, "We are tired. We have babies in our tummies, huh mom."

Thanks to my husband for helping out around the house and taking the kids outside to play. A lot. And the back rubs and crushed ice. (: And a huge thanks to my wonderful mother-in-law for taking the kids yesterday and for the beautiful flowers today. Tulips- my favorite.

It's not like I'm on bed rest- I just have been feeling yucky. All day.

A few pictures of my cuties lately:

Sleeping soundly... we had no clue she had snuck into his room. :)

Easter fun with cousins

Hiding behind the couch will ensure that no one will steal your loot!

After Mason's first wrestling tournament- he wore that medal for days...

With his good buddy after the tournament. Go little Bulldogs!

A few months ago, I was asking Ava some random questions and I said, "If we were to have another baby, would you want a brother or a sister?"

Ava, with a serious expression said, "Actually, I want a doggie."

So sorry to disappoint, Ava! Hope you change your mind in the next 7 months! (:
