Welcome!!!


Lelah Riley was born on Friday, April 24th. She is 5 lbs 15 oz, and 19 1/2". She was 2 and a half weeks early, which means I just have that much longer now. :/ You see, Jalee was due 15 weeks before me, but since she was early, I still have 17 weeks left!! BLAH. Anyway, I went to see Lelah Friday night, but she was in the NICU because the respitory therapist wanted to watch her closer, so I didn't get to see her until around noon the next day. She's so tiny and so pretty. I expected her to look just like her siblings did, but she didn't! She's got kind of strawberry blonde hair (and very little of it), and everyone says she looks like Jalee's grandma. But of course I had to ask Lelah if she'd talked to her future cousin and found out his name...she kept quiet...figures.
This weekend, I had been looking at my kitchen floor thinking, "I need to really clean this darn thing". So finally I got to it. I hate mops, don't really beleive in them (they just push the dirt around), so I sweep and wet swiffer my floors, but every few weeks I just have to get down and scrub it with a sponge. So Sunday was the day. grrrrr. I hate doing it!! And I've put it off too long, being pregnant and not feeling good and all. So I got down on my butt and did it. I sat on my butt the whole time because I have a bad knee that won't allow me to kneel on it. So I scooted around with Gizmo bugging me the whole time, trying to get close to the action. It took me an hour and a half!!! GOOD HELL!! When I finally got up, I could barely stand and barely walk. My hips and legs hurt so bad. Today was very painful too. Getting out of bed, I remembered the pain, "OH NO, that HURTS". Stupid dirty textured crappy linolium. At least I have a very clean kitchen floor now....lets just see how long that lasts.

Oh man mopping the floor stinks! It is on my list of things to do today and I am dreading it. Lelah is adorable. Don't worry your baby will come soon enough :)

Oh - so sorry to hear about the floor - I can't stand mopping the floor either. I wait until last moment when it's totally filthy to clean it. Anyhow hope you are feeling better-

You will start to realize that you're not a "young buck" anymore. I insisted on repainting the main part of our house when I was pregnant...bad idea! I got the hallway done and could hardly move! Blake and my fabulous in-laws had to finish the job! It's time to put Rob in charge of everything:)
