Changing area. I switch from this polka dotted changing pad cover and a solid white one.
Not the light fixture we had originally planned, but I still love it. The original one was about 8 times too large.

I apologize to my readers, which seems to be at least 101 of you according to my blog followers. My posting has reached an all time low. I swore I'd never get here, but here I got. I thought about a few blogs I could write, I took pictures of funny ways the girls played and was going to post about their feminine way of play, I even started taking notes on hilarious things Blake and Kylie had been saying to post about that. But both ideas fizzled away as life flew by. One thing I do remember Blake told me was that she had owieitis. An owie is what we call an injury, a boo boo if you will, and itis, you know just normal old itis. She's flippin hysterical, I need to really stick to my note taking and crank out a funny one. Maybe it's having three kids that has kept me from posting, but I really think I just wasn't making it a priority, that and I got a cold and a stomach bug in the month of June. Here are a few other quick stories I considered blogging about but never got around to.
1. I kept feeling my heart race. Sort of like skipping a beat. I immediately linked it to my lexapro and looked it up online and realized that yes, it is a side effect. And it is under the dangerous side effects that you should call your doctor for category. I was on the phone with Dr. Z's nurse a few minutes later. She told me to not take the medicine that night and see how it went. No lexapro=no racing heart. Problem solved. So I went in the next day to get a new prescription for my post partum anxiety, which even on meds I still have a little bit of it. He recommended zoloft. I about had a party when I found out that Zoloft is only $6 a month compared to Lexapro which is around $120. Heck yes! I about had an afterparty when I found out the main side effect I am experiencing with Zoloft is appetite loss. I mean, it doesn't get much better than that! I can lose my anxiety and weight. Sign this worried mama up! So far so good. Win-win.
2. Did I ever mention the studio is done? I haven't taken pictures of it yet because "done" doesn't really mean done. We ran out of money and the bathroom isn't in yet, but I have been working in there for about a month and am loving my big space! I am just a few big sales away from a finished bathroom for my fantastic clients.
3. This kind of goes back to the zoloft thing. The first few days I was on it, I was a nauseous and didn't want to eat anything. I really started thinking I could be pregnant. Now I think it was just the adjusting to a new medicine, but on Father's day I took a pregnancy test just to be sure. Zach said, "This will be the best and worst Father's day ever." Emphasis on worst. I was so happy to see a negative pregnancy test and it really made me think about a more permanent form of birth control. 3 kids is just right and the true test is that Zach says even if he knew it would be a boy he does not want any more kids. Me too! So glad he isn't one of those guys who is going to make us keep trying for a boy. Plus, I am just kind of starting to feel like my body is returning to normal and I am really liking that feeling. A family of 5 is plenty! Plenty of love, plenty of people and exactly enough rooms in our house.
