No Skype

Kind of feeling a bit sad right now.  I haven't talked to my husband the past two days.  Kaia's stayed up to talk to her Daddy.  She misses him too, I know she does.  She's wiggling all over on the floor right now.  She hasn't rolled over again yet but somehow she has still managed to turn herself around the clock from 6 to 12.  She is so silly!  It seems like at any moment she will flip herself from her back to her tummy.  She is so close.  She hikes her knees up to her tummy and rolls all the way over on her side.  I think the only thing stopping her right now is how much she HATES tummy time.

I think I'm decided on a Nanny for sure now.  Kaia and I did an in home interview today and she answered all my questions like I hoped she would.  She is OK with what we're able to pay.  She is OK with the hours.  She knows baby CPR.  She's nannied for 3 families before, she gave me all their phone numbers.  And best of all, Kaia seemed to like her pretty well.  She lives close by too so we won't have to make accommodations for live in which is nice to not have to worry about since we're renting and would have to clear with the landlords and we'd lose our guest bedroom for when friends and family come over.

Despite the suckiness of not being able to talk to Todd tonight, Kaia and I did do our elliptical time today.  She's a good workout buddy.  We spent 31 minutes 30 seconds on it.  Then I did 20 push-ups and 40 sit-ups to finish up.  I am definitely out of shape and I'm not loving the workouts yet but I'm forcing myself to keep doing it.  It has been making me feel better.  Between the workouts and the vitamins hopefully I'm back to where I want to be before too long.

Off to try and get my angel to sleep since Daddy's still not on.  Fingers crossed and prayers that we'll get to talk to Daddy tomorrow.  Sweet dreams all.

Aww.. and I'm sure he misses you guys too. It must be so hard to not be able to talk to him. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that you will be talking to him soom..

Reading about your baby reminds me so much of when my son was that age, he hated tummy time too! Enjoy they grow up fast.

Hope you have a great Wednesday!

Hope you get to talk to him today!

You are doing more push ups than I have EVER been able to do! I can't even do a real push up...have to do the girly push ups! :)

First of all, you are very impressive. Even the THOUGHT of a pushup wears me out and then I never actually get to the real thing. Kudos to you. You're an inspiration, chica.

I bet Todd feels the same frustrations. I hope you guys all connect soon. Sending positive thoughts your way.

ps. so happy about the nanny. YAY!!!!

I'm so glad you've found a nanny! Definitely run a background check - I think they are $50 or something. And if you can invest in a nanny camera - it gives you total peace of mind.

I hope you get to talk to Toddy soon.

I can't even do one proper push up so seriously, I am so impressed!!

Thank you all so very much! He's OK and we were able to talk to him briefly this morning.

Alex, I hope your Wednesday is fantastic!

Selby, you don't have to and shouldn't be doing any push-ups now anyways :)

Elizabeth, thank you on all accounts.

Ameena, as always, thank you for the sage advice. We do have the background check. Any specific Nanny cam recommendations?

Anne said...

Glad you were able to talk to him! My husband works long hours and the girls talk to him on Facetime (through iPhone) every day. It definitely helps being able to see him. Your workouts put me to shame! You go girl!

Hi, Im a new visitor and follower. I am also a Mom (my daughter is 5) and I am on a new fitness journey. It hasn't been easy but I am dedicated and motivated to get fit and healthy! What vitamins are you incorporating in your diet?

Kat said...

I am so happy that you think you found The Nanny and that they wouldn't have to live-in! Fingers and toes that everything else goes as planned.

I know that when I started running, it took me a good three months to get hooked, so way to rock in your workout today! Keep on keeping us posted :)

Thanks Anne! My hubby wants to get an iPhone when he gets back but we have verizon and aren't sure if were ready to switch or not.

Hey Mommy Glow! Can't wait to check out your blog! I am still taking prenatal vitamins and a calcium + D supplement.

Kat, thank you for the encouragement!
