Makayla's new hair & 29 weeks

Here is my beautiful little almost-done-with-kindergarten Makayla MaQua. She has been begging me to let her cut and I have been saying no, no, no. Finally, it's gotten so hot that I have had to pull is back everyday - well, she hates having her hair done and I got tired of dealing with it, so I let her get her hair cut. We went over to Aunt Cole's and she did it. I thought I was going to die! But after a few cuts, I realized how cute it was going to be. I LOVE HER HAIR!!! And more importantly, she LOVES her hair! Nathan measured a piece that we cut, it was almost 12 inches long! I love her hair long cuz I can braid it, and curl it, and pony tail it (that is all when she would let me of course). But now, we just have to brush and go. Well, round brush and go. But she's stinking cute!!! I love her!!
I'm now at 29 weeks! And the best news is, as of today, May 27th, it has been 6 weeks since I last had to worship the porcelin god (aka, the toilet). THATS AMAZING!! I don't think I ever went a full week without throwing up when I was pregnant with Makayla. I still have to take my medicine every night before I go to sleep, but as long as I do that, I don't get sick. Today, I do feel a little yucky, and I have a couple of times over the past several weeks, but I'm not throwing up! I have put on about 24 pounds finally, but the funny part about that is it has all been since about my 18th week, so 24 lbs in 11 weeks. If I keep going this way, I'll have put on almost 5o lbs before this baby is born! I put on a total of 55 lbs with Makayla (now I had lost 15 at the beginning of that pregnancy) but we'll see what happens here.
The think I have noticed that I didn't with Makayla is a lot of abdominal pain. The Dr. calls is round ligament stretching. I don't care what it's called, it hurts! I do have a belly band that I wear, and as long as I wear it (cuz I'm not so good at that) I can do a lot more. Nicole and I went to babies r us yesterday and I found a crib I LOVE and the bedding that I LOVE!! The crib we had for Makayla was passed down to Nathan's little brother Nick and is still in use so we're going to need to get a new one (it's okay, cuz Nate's mom bought Makayla's so we don't feel shafted really), but this way, hopefully we can get a new one. It's amazing how many new things they have for babies that they didn't have 6 years ago! I have also decided that there are plenty of things that I don't have a problem borrowing from family instead of buying new, but there are several things that we are going to need to still get new things of. We'll see what happens.

technology . . . grrrrrr

video

I am apparently no good at technology. Nathan came and did the EXACT SAME THING that I did, and low a behold, the stupid video uploaded!!

Well, now that it is up, please enjoy my FREAKING CUTE daughter and her class at this little mothers day program they put on for us. I would put all the video's from that day up, but again, technology hates me!

take 2

I was told that to upload a video I have to have patience. I don't have patience, but I am going to try to upload a video and then leave so that I can not have to sit here and wonder if it's going to happen. So here goes:

Yeah, it didn't work. I left my computer for 3 hours and it still didn't upload. I don't know if it's the wrong format or what, but it doesn't say that, it just keeps saying "uploading video" It's not that big of a video or very long, it's like 45 seconds. Whatever!!

Mothers Day Program & 27 Weeks!!

Last week Makayla's kindergarten class put on this adorable mothers day program. They did 7 little skits/songs. I tried to upload a video of it, but apparently i'm retarded and can't get them to upload, so sorry. :-( Makayla's teacher is originally from Hawaii and she put a lot of time into this program. Her name is Ms. Gardner and she is amazing! We have Makayla in all day kindergarten and it is so worth it. So anyone wondering if they should do it for their kindergartner, DO IT! In this picture are some of Makayla's favorite friends in Kindergarten. From left: Joshua, Carlos, Emma H, Makayla & Miguel. She really has some cute kids in her class. Although little Carlos needs to watch out or Makayla's daddy will put the smack down on that little boy who wants to grow up too fast! Yes, he kissed Makayla several months ago. But Makayla said no more. She's so funny!

I can't believe that Makayla's first year of school is almost over! She will be in first grade next year and it just boggles my mind that she is getting so big! Makayla will be turning 6 a month after this new baby is born. She is so excited and is "practicing" with her dolly to be a good big sister.

This was at the beginning of the program, they gave all the mommy's their lei's, after a cute song about lei's.


I'm now 27 weeks!! YAY!!! Some days I think time is going so fast, and other days it's not going fast enough! This little girl is getting quite active and having lots of fun wiggling around inside. I'm still enjoying it so that means she's not kicking too hard yet . . . but don't worry, I know it's coming. I have felt much MUCH better with this pregnancy than I did with Makayla. I still have to take my anti-nausea medicine everynight before bed, but at least it makes it easier for me to function. My biggest problem is my STUPID sciatic nerve!! No matter which side I lay on, it KILLS me! It runs down my butt cheek. I guess it's good that it's not going down my leg, but my butt is bad enough. Here are some pictures. These are at Ryiah's (Nicole's daughter) blessing:

Our cousin Melissa is due two weeks after me. How do we compare? She is having a girl also. The Marley side of the family (Pam's side) has gotten 1 girl already this year and will get two more before September. It's funny because Grandpa Marley had 4 daughters and no boys, and when I married into the Taylor family, I was informed that Taylors only have boys, well, i'm pretty sure that that rule doesn't apply to Nate and I. I like it that way!! Nick has 2 boys and Jeremiah has 3. They can do the boys, Nicole and I will do the girls. Works for us!
