the battle

day two hundred and eleven: pregnant Shelbie vs Cleo
Ok before I tell you the reason behind this post, 
can I just say, 
isn't this the cutest??
We gave Cleo a stuffed animal to sleep with,
because she literally had to be touching something to fall asleep-
usually Ryan's foot-
and she cuddled with it at night,
but one day I came into the dining room and found her like this,
she had pulled the arms and legs up on her and they were like spooning!
I died...

But... that's the only upside of this post.
It turns out pregnant Shelbie is SUPER sensitive to smells...
and literally every dog smell makes me throw up.
I couldn't feed the puppy,
take the puppy out to the bathroom,
play with the puppy,
or go into the room where we kept puppies food 
(which also happens to be the only way downstairs...)
so... unfortunately we were more of a foster home for cute Cleo.
Another couple in our ward adopted her,
and we were sad to see her go...
but human baby had to win in this case.

Because of sickness, I haven't been able to find a job up here yet.

trying to be sentimental

day two hundred: ryan's family
my family, we just told because they were here...
but for ryan's family, we wanted to tell them a little more surprising.
so we decided to do it as a gift for ryan's mom's birthday.
we wrapped up these little clothes and this little poem and gave it to her.

and so it begins

day one hundred and ninety-nine: i was going to be on top of things
I was going to try and be one of those people
that had a cute chalk board for every week of their pregnancy...
this is the last one I did (as of 10/03),
because sickness is a real thing.

the smallest things

day one hundred and ninety seven: baby clothes
guys, I meant it when I said we weren't good at secrets,
by next weekend we will have already told both sides of our families, 
though I will say that we found out early (July 5th),
so even this long has been a struggle.

baby clothes! I can't handle it.

silly man

day one hundred and ninety five: shaving
the only, and I really do mean only, draw back of ry working from home,
is that sometimes he doesn't wake up with enough time to shave...
so he gets scruffy haha
and then he starts to shave and comes out like this.
good thing he is cute.

day one hundred and ninety four: raspberries
sister and husband have a yard full of raspberries,
which I'm so ok with.
because... ice cream and raspberries are delicious.
 they are also the only food that sounds good.

how we wore it: summer workout

day one hundred and eighty-eight
So another failure over here...
Moving has my brain in about 7000 places.
This month's how we wore it (from Deidre Emme) was focused on workout clothes.

But let's be real...
I hate working out.
So my take on this was comfort clothes. I love love love comfy clothes.
This shress (shirt/dress, not a real word) is my favorite.
It is SOOO comfy,
plus leggings... win win
