tooth fairy

My baby lost his first tooth this morning! He looks absolutely adorable now!

Let me tell you though, this was no easy task to get this tooth out! Not because it wasn't loose enough... oh no. My son hates the sight of his own blood. And apparently the last time Isabel had a loose tooth, she tried pulling it too soon and bled all over the place and he VIVIDLY remembers this.

So we have been checking the progress of the wiggley tooth for about 2 months now, and last night he tells me, "mom, I think we should pull my tooth" Ok... So I got my floss out, and tied a knot and placed it securely around said tooth, and just as I was about to pull.... he covered his mouth, backed away and said to me... "mom... what if it bleeds! What if it hurts? I know that its gonna bleed." So how about we wait until tomorrow?

So, being the sweet and nuturing mother that I am... asked my darling son "Do you trust mommy? yes... Has mommy ever hurt you before??? no.... so you believe me when I tell you it won't bleed and it won't hurt right? yeah?!...." Ok, then... let me pull it.

and I pulled out the floss once again wrapped it around Mr. Wiggley Tooth... and counted.... 1..... 2..... 3....... and out popped the little tooth!

I've probably traumitized my poor son, BUT there was no blood and there was no pain! Score one for Mom! NICE!!!!!

But now, I am realizing my little baby is not so little anymore... and I'm sad. I'm going to attribute this to my pregnant hormones which are controlling my emotions in the strangest manner. But my little baby is growing into a little man!
OH.. and apparently Isabel has informed Tyler that the Tooth Fairy now give $5 for the first tooth! WHAT... SINCE WHEN!?

Wordless Wednesday

I would like to take a moment and thank the person that invented a bean bag chair big enough for all 4 of us to lay on and sleep at the same time!

nothing much going on...

So that's pretty much the gist of things right now.

I get up, go to work, come home, crash on the beanbag and go to bed. Yup... exciting. I know!

I've been super tired lately, I guess carrying an extra 20 pounds is not what its cracked up to be! So I am determined to hit the gym this weekend. Yes, I realize I have promised this for the last six months, but I'm serious!!!

I've also not slept like I should be, seeing as I have to pee every five minutes... seriously no lie! I feel like I have to pee EVERY 5 MINUTES! Even when I don't drink anything! Then of course there is that little baby that LOVES to make sure he is not crowded when I try to sleep by reminding me that I am intruding on his space by constantly kicking me until I move... granted I love it, but its annoying when you can't get comfortable. Oh, and my poor husband is battling bronchitis AND conjunctivitis, both allergy induced! SOOOOO needless to say it has been a very fun yet not restful week.
I do suppose it could be worse, but I NEEED my sleep man!!!

I don't have much by way of pics this week... a few cuties of the kids which you know I'll post because I just love to brag about my children..

Just look at that face... how could you NOT love it!

Mother's day was nice, nothing too exciting. We got up, I made breakfast and we took off to Tyler's soccer game. My baby is doing so good! He scored 3 goals!!! I have video, but of course not on the computer!

Then after soccer we all went to the batting cages so Isabel could practice her swing. I am soo proud of her, she is doing so well at softball and her coaches are always telling me how good of a batter she is, and how well she throws! She is one of the most consistent hitters on her team, she almost always gets on base when she's up at bat.

Go Big Mami!!!!

This pic of Tyler is one of my favorites, he is trying to "slam dunk" the ball and hang onto the rim... he must have tried about 100 times! It was soo cute, he finally figure out how to toss the ball into the rim and hang on at the same time.

Oh yeah, I can't remember if I mentioned about having a 3D ultrasound done on May 1st? But anyhow, we went, we were all excited,especially since my husband hasn't been able to go to any of my ultrasound appointments yet. Well, baby decided he wanted no part of the ultrasound that evening. The tech tried for almost 30 minutes, baby was sleeping comfortably, with both arms behind his head, and snuggled up close to my waist so that she couldn't even get a good look at his face. So in an effort to coax him to wake up and move a bit, I sat up. I felt him move so we checked.... AND...... he had rolled over showing us his back!!! He curled into a ball and tucked his head under his arms and that was it! Bugger! So we are trying again tomorrow morning. I'm hoping he will be a little more cooperative at 9am and we won't be intruding on his busy schedule. ;0)

Soooooo, that's about it for now. Hopefully tomorrow I can post a 3D pic of Baby CastaƱo! I can't wait!

I love this picture... I told Isabel to go pic up her clean laundry off the bed so she could go to sleep and when I went it to check this is what I found!

I fail

I fail... I have been sooo bad the last couple of weeks about trying to post. I've had every intention to post something, really I have! But I have been slammed at work, and soo tired when I get home, that I keep waiting for a minute "tomorrow" and apparently that minute has not materialized.

So, I have promised myself that I will post something today. Honestly there really hasn't been anything all that exciting to post about either. But I have some pics I will upload this afternoon.

That's my apology... hopefully I will keep my word and post a little something about the last couple of weeks.
