Bullet-Points

-I've got a bunch of random, disjointed thoughts running through my mind today, and I can't come up with a coherent post for the life of me. So my bullet-point ramblings will have to do for today.

-Blogger still hasn't restored my Moms and Babies post from last Thursday. I'm starting to wonder if it will ever come back. I'm officially disturbed. What if Blogger loses some of my more cherished posts forever next time? I don't even want to think about it. Is anyone else still waiting for their lost posts to reappear?

-On Saturday I went to a tea party hosted by my friend, Ashley! She did a beautiful job of it too - red and white china, white roses, little sandwhiches, quishes, vegetables, punch, chocolate oranges, tarts, Russian tea cookies, sugar cubes with little roses on them - and of course, tea! She really knows how to set a table. I was kicking myself for not bringing my camera, but I'm hoping she'll have a post up soon with pictures, so be sure to hop over and check her blog out.

-I am in desperate need of new jeans. None of my jeans fit properly anymore. Boy, Kara wasn't kidding when she stated that things move during pregnancy! My grandma used to comment about how things get "rearranged" after you have a baby. Oh, and it's true. My skinniest skinny jeans are too baggy now( they make me feel frumpy), but my stomach is twice as thick.

-My blog e-mail gets tons of posts from scammers. I mean, how many deposed foreign royalty needing my help and million pound (as in British pounds) contests can there be? Seriously, people, how dumb do you think I am?

-Chloe had her baby! So did Mrs. Gibby! I've been stalking their blogs and Twitter for details all weekend. I saw pictures, and they're pretty cute! Congratulations to their lovely mams!

-Wyatt has these little red spots on his face. They first appeared on Saturday, and I thought they were baby acne, but then they got worse and spread on Sunday. Has anyone else's baby had anything like that? I think I need to take him to the doctor. I hope he's not developing some sort of allergy.

-Oh yes, and I had that ultrasound to check on my blood clot. It's still there. I was very disappointed, because I was really hoping it would be gone. Now my doctor is consulting with a hematologist to see what we should do next. My guess is that I'll be on high-powered blood thinners for the next few months, but we'll see. I should still be able to feed Wyatt, but I kind of worry about him getting medication from me that he doesn't need.

-We could use some prayers for the two afore-mentioned medical issues.

-On a happy note, Derek's dad might give us his old mattress! The mattress that we have now is so uncomfortable, it's not even funny. It's old. The mattress we might get is a pillow top. I can't wait to try it out! Sound-sleep-with-no-backaches-in-the-morning, here I come.

-Have any of you heard of Charming Charlie? It's a color-coded accessory store. I had never heard of it before, but my sister-in-law gave me a gift card for Christmas. I haven't been able to use it yet, because all the Charming Charlie stores were too far away from me. But, there is one coming to a shopping mall near me now! I'm thinking my accessory collection could use a serious boost, and the last time I checked it out they had a ton of fun pieces for very reasonable prices.

-And that's it. Sorry for the lack of pictures, but I'm not sure what pictures to include, and I just don't have it in me to go on an online picture-search today . . .

I've had NO butt since I was about 13 weeks! It just totally went away! And the baby rash...I would just call the doc first. My nephew gets rashes ALL THE TIME. My family just has super sensitive skin so Wyatt's could be an allergy or just super delicate baby skin.

Rachel said...

Blogger managed to restore my posts but it is worrying. It's a free service which they could take offline at any time - along with all our posts.

Will be praying for the medical things. Have a happy Tuesday :)

We have a Charming Charlie & it's pretty amazing. I love how it's color coded & yes, they have every color! My only complaint is it's always so crowded LOL - i think ours needs a bigger space. But they have lots of cute things in any color you need & their prices are very reasonable. :)

Praying for you and your little guy! So hoping your blood clot goes away - what the heck! Not cool!

Lauren said...

We have a Charming Charlie in the mall nearby and while I haven't bought anything, it's a super fun accessories store! A little overwhelming and certainly dangerous for the checking account!

Amanda said...

oh there is so much to comment on today! :) i'm still waiting on blogger too! ugh. that was very annoying. i hope all the medical things get worked out okay! oh and i LOVE charming charlie. we just recently got one. i always feel so overwhelmed in there. they have tons of stuff. glad you are getting a new mattress!! we have an old one too...and are hoping to at least get a foam topper sometime soon.

Giada had a rash like that for quite a while when she was around Wyatt's age, so I made sure to keep her face clean and wash it pretty constantly. It eventually went away. My niece also had a facial rash that spread allover her body and it turned out that she was allergic to the washing detergent. As soon as my SIL changed it, her rash went away.
And yeah, pretty frustrated with Blogger! BOOO

Praying for your blood clot. I'm going to go look for chloe's baby!!!

Charming Charlie's is A-MAZING! Unfortunately, I don't live near one, but my parents do, so my mom and I always shop there when I visit. :] They have every single accessory you could think of...you'll have fun shopping there!

Melanie said...

Love your randomness for the day! When you first mentioned Wyatt's rash..I thought baby acne too but since its getting worse he could be allergic to something. Have you switched fabric softners/soaps/detergents or has he been exposed to something thats been washed by perhaps someone else who uses different stuff than you do? Seems everyone in my family (myself included) is allergic to some sort of detergent/soaps. Oh and the tea party sounded like so much fun you went to! I was excited to read about Chloe having her baby too..can't wait for the birth story on that one!

Jennifer said...

I can't believe what a pain blogger was last week! So annoying.
I wonder if Wyatt's redness could be a heat rash maybe?

Jessica said...

I'm sorry to hear that the blood clot is still there :-( Praying for all of you!

You will love Charming Charlie!! I went to one for the first time a few weeks ago, and it was amazing. And HUGE! I could have spent hours in there, and the prices were very reasonable, too!

I liked your post of bullets. :) Yes doesn't it stink about the body changing. That's crazy that your post never came back, I thought they were all supposed to come back?? Isn't there a way to download your blog?

Will keep you and the health concerns in my prayers. Also, yeah, I would just call the doctor about Wyatt's bumps. Just leave a message with the phone nurse and they'll tell you if you need to come in. Hope they go away soon!
