This is my 2 year old son Dustin. This is his latest photos taken outside at Doctor's Office in Fruita, Colorado. Mike having an appointment and he will going to have a shot on his lower back. So while we're waiting for him to get done, me and dustin went outside and took couple photos of him under the tree. He look so good on his pose.

Get a shot...

Mike didn't work today, he ask for sick leave for one day because he has his doctor appointment this afternoon around 12:15 pm. He will going to get a shot on his lower back. He suffer so much pain with that and i think giving him a shot on his back is a good thing to do than having a surgery. I think it helps a lot because the doctor give him the right dose to lessen the pain on his lower back. He feel pain also in his finger, next to the thumb. He need to make another appointment, maybe next month. His doctor recommend him to go to orthopaediatric - that is hand specialist that will give him a shot on his finger. The doctor didn't give him a shot on his finger while they giving him a shot on his back because its not their job to do that thats why he recommended him to other doctor. Next month, Sept. 12, my mother-in-law will visit us here for a 1 week and 2 weekends vacation. Mike will going to use his vacation leave so that he can spend time to his mom. I am sure it will be exciting! I cant wait also for my next appointment for my 3rd prenatal check up this coming September 8. So will see what the baby look like that time hehe :-) Im excited!

Is Sugar makes the kids hyper and more energetic?

Dustin loves candy, chocolate, cookies, soda and everything that is sweet. Thats why sometimes i am thinking maybe thats the reason why he is so energetic and hyper. In the afternoon he dont want to take a nap, he just love to go play and go out in the backyard. Mike told me that i need to stop feeding him those kind of food that full of sugar, because Dustin becomes more hyper and grouchy. Just like this afternoon, he didn't take a nap, he really makes me tired. I get irritated especially if he acted too much. He loves to giggle, pinch, jump, move all over especially if you try to put him on your lap. I spank him sometimes if he acted that way, just let him know that i am the boss and he need to listen to me as his mommy. So i am not sure if the sugar is the reason why he acted like this. What do you think?

Pain makes you grouchy?

I noticed that most people suffer pain or something that makes them not feel good and sick are always grouchy and not in mood. One of the example is my hubby, i understand why he act mean and grouchy because he feel so much pain on his lower back and shoulder. So everytime we have misunderstanding or if he is not in mood i knew right away that he is not in good mood to talk or he will get easily mad if i did something wrong or if i dont understand what he is saying. I dont react right away because i know where i will stand on this situation. Instead of talking back to him, i remain quiet and calm. I talk with him if he is in good mood and sometimes i make a joke on him to make him laugh. How about you? do you feel the same way? For me if i am not feeling good or if i feel something that is painful, yeah i admit i am grouchy too sometimes. I am easily get mad and frustrated and i just want to lay down most of the time and not to talk to anybody. But of course i can control my feelings hehe :-)

The Dark Knight

Yesterday, we watched Batman "The Dark Knight". It was interesting movie but it didn't makes me excited at all and same as my hubby, he thought it was a good movie but he also not excited with the whole story at the movie. I prefer the 1st Batman with Jack Nicolson with it. This movie is not bad at all. Actually Dustin likes it but he fell asleep when the movie almost end. The movie takes about 2 hours and 35 minutes. I am sure many people loved this movie. Heath Ledger, really did a good job as a "Joker". He is mean, he is very evil. I like the part where they are in the Hospital, he is wearing a nurse outfit and when he get out at the hospital and walk funny before he blow up the whole building. :-) Christian Bale did a good job as a Batman too. I like his voice there very deep and cold hehe. Anyway, If you never watch it yet, so hurry and go to the near theater on your area and watch "The Dark Knight"! :-)

11 weeks pregnant!

Here is the picture of our baby. Im 11 weeks pregnant and my 3rd prenatal check up will be this coming next month September 8 and my ultrasound appointment will be this coming October 7. So will see whats the result of the baby, either if its a boy or a girl. Cant wait for the result! I will keep you updated with our upcoming baby! :-) thanks for visiting my Parenting Journey Blog!

My 2nd prenatal check up

Last Tuesday is my 2nd prenatal check up. I arrived exactly at 2:20pm. Im glad we are not late hehe :-) Anyway, my doctor did pelvic exam and she did pap smear also. It makes me really tense and uncomfortable that time but it went pretty good though. Im glad my doctor is a woman and she's really nice too. Pap smear can give you a lot of pressure and that makes me really tense i think. What is pap smear anyway? pap smear is a way to look at a sample of cells taken from a woman's cervix. The test is used to look for changes in the cells of the cervix that show cervical cancer or conditions that may develop into cancer. So hopefully the results will be okay and after the pelvic exam and pap smear, we had a chance to look at the baby again for the second time and im so happy to see the baby is growing and the doctor said the baby is normal, my cervix is closed and the heartbeat of the baby is really good. So im happy with that. My 3rd prenatal check up is this coming next month September 8 and my ultrasound appointment is this coming October 7. Cant wait to see the results if the baby is a girl or a boy. But either boy or a girl as long its healthy and thats okay with us. :-)

Weekend Rants

Last weekend, instead of going to garage sale we decided to go to the park in the morning until lunch time to find lost items, try to find treasure you know. But you know what? i found some coins, and most of them are just aluminum foil and junk. Then after lunch, we go to LOWES to buy new tarps to cover the dog kennel. The old tarps already ruined because the dog chewing it. It was so hot that time and it gives me headache. So while Mike putting the new tarps, im helping him everytime he called me but i am on the shade all the time. Its not good for me to be in the sun for a long time because i will feel dizzy.

Dustin having good time, i put bandana on him just like his daddy and they are look the same! he is so cutie and he always ask where's the camera is. So i grab the camera and take picture of him. I took a nice photo of him while he is smiling and sitting down in the shade :-)
I gave him a bath in his little pool too. He really enjoyed it a lot, it takes him about an hour or two to get done because he really dont want to get out in the water. In the first photo as you can see, he is shaking because the water is cold. But it dont bother him that much, he still like it even the water is cold hehe :-) He take a nap after. I think he is really tired of swimming and playing in the water and be in the sun for the whole day.

I think its normal for a pregnant woman to have backache. I am having a backache since last month and right now? i feel so terrible. I cant even bend my back. Well, maybe i done too much of work and taking care of my 2 year old son. Tomorrow, i have my doctor appointment. This is my 2nd prenatal check up. I cant wait to see the baby inside of me. Hopefully he will be a healthy baby like dustin. Mike will be work half day tomorrow so that he can go with me on my doctor. So will see what happen tomorrow... :-)

Lazy for the day...

The weather makes me really lazy. It's very cloudy outside and it seems like it will going to rain this afternoon. I heard at the news that this week, there is possibility of having thunderstorm. I really dont like this kind of weather. Not only makes me lazy but it makes me sleepy too. I just want to lay down on the bed and sleep for the whole day. This morning i woke up early around quarter to 7:00am because our dog was making a lot of noise. I think they saw a dog or a cat outside our yard or in our neighbors yard. It bothers me a lot, instead of having a good sleep then they ruined it. I never had enough sleep because i always woke up in the middle of the night to go potty and i have really a bad dream last night. When i woke up i already had tears in my eyes. Hopefully my dream wont happen in the near future. I was really scared because it is about losing my hubby and dustin. That is terrible, i dont want to think about it or else it makes me sad.

Trying to find treasure

Last night after dinner, we went to the park and try our 2 metal detector. One for Mike and one for me. He got the Tesoro and i use the new Garrett Metal Detector that he bought for me. It was fun! but im telling you, digging in a grass is hard hehe :-) guess what i found? i didn't found good valuable lost items, instead i found a junk like alluminum foil, nail and a piece of metal and wires. Mike found some coins but i never find one! Well... i think it takes a lot of time to practice and recognized the sounds. Its fun because dustin is trying to help me dig the ground. He is the one who's holding the shovel and he gave it to me everytime i ask it for him. Hopefully the weather this afternoon will be okay so that we can go to the park again and see what we could find!

Blood Alcohol Calculator

Are you curious about your blood alcohol level? Because I do! I know most people do especially to those alcoholic person. I am not alcoholic but before when I was single, I drink 2-3 cans of beer when I going out with friends. I know you are curious too, so maybe this BAC Blood Alcohol Content Level Calculator can help you find the answer that you are looking for. I already tried it and it works really good. My hubby love to drink wine and it makes me curious on what will be the results if I calculated his blood alcohol level. I was very surprised with the results because 2-3 glass of wine is not that really bad at all. The BAC results was 0.0429. So its not that bad.

We know that drinking while driving is very dangerous so make it sure that you don’t drink when you are driving. I read the recent post at their website and it caught my attention about this article Blood Alcohol Calculate reminds motorists that drinking and driving never mix. I absolutely agree on this article. I heard many people having an accident because of this. So if you want to calculate your blood alcohol level then why not try this Blood Alcohol Calculator and see the results? Its free to install! You can either install the calculator on your website or blog if you like.

Garage Sale on Weekend!

Every weekend, we're looking for a garage sale and hoping to find furniture and good stuff. Mostly, we're looking for a furniture, kids clothes, jewelry, painting, book, CD's or anything that looks new and interesting. This weekend, we got wicker furniture. It looks nice and we got it for $5 and the wicker rocking chair is $10. Not so bad! because wicker furniture are expensive at the store. We also got jewelry for only $5 each and a box of cars for Dustin too. Garage Sale is fun especially if you find the one that you are looking for. Some people sale their stuff for only $1, for the furniture, you can get a very affordable prices especially if you went to Estate Sale. Its more cheaper than buying furniture at the store. Kids clothes are only 50 cents and sometimes the clothes still have tag on it. Anyway, these are all we've got from garage sale yesterday. :-)
