Dear 21 year old Ciera,
Sunday, June 27, 2010
This is a no brainer... boobs! Definitely. I would get them done tomorrow if I could. After nursing Kenna everything has just gone down hill. So sad.
With as much TV as I watch, you would think I love soap operas. But no, never could get into them. I am more of a reality TV/ True Blood fanatic.
I don't really have a favorite clothing brand. I just buy what I like. I do love Miss Me jeans but they're so expensive I rarely get them.
This is easy. Afternoon shopping spree. I have come to the conclusion that no matter how often I clean, the kids always seem to have it a mess again in 5 minutes so I've given up on everything being amazingly clean and organized all the time. Plus, I don't really mind cleaning all that much. & I do love a shopping spree :)
I am not a movie cryer... but I did tear up a little in Toy Story 3. Andy is going to college!!! Very good movie though!
No broken bones for me! And I'd like to keep it that way!

Cream together butter and sugars in large bowl. Add eggs and mashed bananas. Combine well. Sift together flour, salt, cinnamon and baking soda. Add to creamed mixture. Stir until mixture is smooth. Add vanilla, and mix well. Spray loaf pan with non stick cooking spray. Pour mixture into loaf pan and sprinkle with brown sugar. Bake at 350 for 60 minutes. Let cool 10 minutes and enjoy :)
Hopefully this is no indication of how the rest of my day will be :)

So today is mine and hubb's 6 year anniversary. Yes, we still celebrate the day we started dating. We usually don't do anything special but we do acknowledge the day. Can't believe it's been six years already! I love you, baby :)

I had a pool/movie date today with two very handsome boys and one of my best girl friends :) We went to see Toy Story 3... which was very good, I might add. I will also add that I cannot wait to see the movie Despicable Me. I laugh histerically every time I see the preview for it and am very much looking forward to having another movie date with these handsome boys when it comes out.

& These shoes :)
I will be wearing this outfit to the surprise birthday party I am throwing my MIL this weekend :)
I have a busy week. I have to get this house squeaky clean before the party, and get everything together without my MIL knowing whats going on. Hope I can pull it off! Then the kids have a birthday party to go to on Friday and we are going to my brother's graduation on Saturday. We will be busy busy busy.
Got my bathroom clean AND organized yesterday! It took quite a while but my bathroom has never been more shiny! Now if I can just keep Gavin from peeing on the seat/floor/shower curtain/walls I'll be in good shape.
Clean & organize my bathroom.

He is just like Mommy, loves to be in the kitchen!
Putting sprinkles on the cake!
It took everything in his power to not stick his finger in the cake and lick the frosting off!
After the cake was done, we made a big dish of home made lasagna! & as soon as she got home from work, we surprised her at her house with dinner and birthday cake! It was a nice day :)

I have been reading a few other blogs/stories about mommies that breast fed until their child didn't want to anymore. & they were so sad when that time came.
Me on the other hand, I cant wait for that time to come! I have been trying to wean Kenna for a while now. About a month ago, she was still nursing 3-4 times a day AND waking up in the middle of the night to nurse AT LEAST once. That's a lot of nursing, huh? & now I've got her down to nursing only at night, before she goes to bed. She still wakes up in the middle of the night but I just give her the binky and she goes back to sleep.
She will be one on June 9th and has one tooth, & is ready to pop another one any day now.
I told myself I was only going to nurse her for 6 months, then it turned into 9 months, then it turned into one year, and now that day is right around the corner and I cant wean her!! Don't get me wrong, I love the time I have when I'm nursing her and it's just she and I bonding. Buuuut SHE IS GETTING TEETH! & she is almost a year old!! & I'm just over the whole 'nursing' thing now. Is that horrible?
Honestly though, I think it is just a comfort thing for Kenna at this point. It doesn't seem like she misses her 3-4X a day feedings. But when bed time rolls around she definitely knows what time it is and wants to nurse. I feel like I should just let her wean herself when she's ready. Then again, I don't want to be nursing her when she is 18 months old!
