one month old already?

Wow, can you believe it? It’s been 1 month already! My little guy flew through the first month at the blink of an eye! Didn’t I just have him?

Well, what a month it has been. If there is such a thing past exhaustion, that would be me, smiles. Sleep and I were sort of on speaking terms before I was pregnant, but now we’re barely speaking, lol.

Jaydon is definitely a mommy’s boy. He must have his mommy for feeding time, changing his diaper, putting on his clothes, sleeping and just about anything else you can think of. He will let his daddy hold him sometimes, but he must be in the mood for that. If not, kick, scream, cry, punch and anything else that would get him his mommy. Sadly this makes things a little hard when I’m trying to work at night, but maybe there’s hope at the end of the tunnel, smiles.

I also think I’m dealing with PPD, but the questions that it has you go by don’t really apply. So I don’t know! This part is definitely different from my other after pregnancies, so I’m not sure what the heck to look out for. Maybe I’m just overwhelmed. Ah well, back to the little turtle.

Why my little turtle? Hahaha, that’s because no matter what J likes to stay curled up as tight as he can and he looks like a turtle in its shell, smiles.

Some people have asked me about his eye sight and as far as I can tell everything looks fine. He does focus on me when he’s awake enough and I talk to him or when I’m feeding him. So that’s a good thing. When we went to the doctor today she also said that he is tracking with no problems, yay!

Speaking of the doctor, J is sooooooo not going to like me and definitely not the doctor next month. He has to have 3….count them, 3 shots. When the heck did it switch to 3 shots for the 2 month check up?

Today he weighs 7lbs 2 ounces which is great. he’s picking up that weight he lost after he was born. I had to unfortunately switch from breast feeding all the time to adding in formula as well due to the fact that he eats eats eats and I just couldn’t keep up and I was starting to feel horrible that I wasn’t giving him enough. But, all is good now, yay!

He’s also grown an inch in a month. His birth height was 20 inches and he’s now 21, smiles.

We’ve practiced a little tummy time and sadly mommy keeps losing. I put him on his tummy and he promptly rolls over, lol. He’s been a roller since day one so I must figure out how to defeat him! I will prevail I tell you, lol.

We do have baby pictures and I will hopefully figure out how to get them up here on my blog so people can see them. However, if you’re on my facebook and somehow missed it, smiles, they are several of them posted there.

Anyways, until next time. I must check on the little one since i have him sleeping on his tummy at the moment. Oh yes, and if anyone has a baby tranquilizer, pleeeeeease still send it my way. My little night owl needs it, smiles.

Adventures with baby J at 2 weeks

Wheeeeee! Time continues to fly right on by! Baby J is now 2 weeks old and here’s the adventures he’s brought us this time.

For those viewing this entry via email, there is a video attached, so make sure to pop on over to www.youtube.com/canadianlynx1 and look for baby J.

For those of you that have not seen how *cute* and *adorable* Jaydon is, how about we give you that chance now! Take a look at this video at the star of the show!!

Whenever I can remember how to do so, I will be adding his pictures to my photo collection as well. But isn’t he sooooooo cute? That’s what everyone keeps telling us and stating they’re going to kidnap him. I need to seriously invest in those security bracelets like they have at the hospital, lol.

Finally, its daddy’s turn!
Ah, so one day daddy took it on himself to change J’s diaper while I was sleeping…rare moment getting to sleep for me you know, lol. Anyways, his first time he does an *awesome* job. Go daddy! That was even with part of that annoying umbilical cord still attached. Gods, I’ll be glad when that’s finally all gone!

Baby J gives daddy a hard time!
Oooops, sorry daddy. This time changing that diaper doesn’t go as smoothly, hahah.

1. daddy gets everything ready to change the diaper
2. daddy places J on changing table
3. daddy goes to unbutton onesie

Jaydon, Ooooops, sorry daddy, you can’t change my diaper! *crosses his legs over his bum and hides the buttons* and refuses to let daddy move them!
Daddy, *laughing* he won’t let me take his clothes off
Me, hahahahahahahah

I of course am highly amused by this development and let it go on for a few minutes before rescuing daddy…or maybe I was rescuing the baby? lol.

I walk in the room and of course have to tease daddy.

Me, J, are you giving daddy a hard time?
jaydon, *big smile* and starts waving his arms and legs around
Daddy, *walks off to have a cigarette while laughing* Of course he was

First doctors appointment
Well, our little guy just had his first appointment yesterday morning and of course, *you guessed it* everyone ooooooo’d and aaaaaah’d and wanted to kidnap him, smiles.

J is doing well except for his weight. It’s not horrible, but I’m just a little concerned about it and daddy is more so. He’s a pound under his birth weight at 6lbs, and about 9 ounces and I sometimes feel that even though he eats and eats and eats, he’s just not putting on weight…quite the opposite, he seems to be losing. He’s still giving me loads of wet and poopy diapers so nothing to be overly concerned about, but still, *grumbles* Trying not to get too stressed about it since that won’t help with milk flow either, but damn that’s hard, lol. Anyways, as I said, besides that the little guy is looking great and the doctor wants us to come in next week for a weight check.

Mommy’s boy
lol, now this little guy is definitely a mommy’s boy. In my opinion i think he’s more my little shadow than my other 2 monsters were. With them I at least got them to sleep in their beds all the time. Smiles, J will during the day, but I can’t for no reason get him to stay there at night. This should make it fun when I start back to work on Tuesday night.

people say it’s because i’m a night owl that he’s one too and has to be with mommy. Hahah, most likely that is true. hmm, wonder if I can get double pay for teaching Jaydon early about working for Red Roof?

Now if he is not with me and say daddy tries to comfort him by holding him or rocking him and he really wants his mommy….trust me, he will let you know it, lol. Squirmy boy and pretty much make you death by those awesome set of lungs of his, he will demand you take him to his mommy!

Anyways, until the next update. I hope everyone has a great long weekend!

Wow, one week old already?

Wow how time flies! Can you believe it’s been a week already? That’s right, baby J is already one week old and boy what a ride it’s been! Sleep, what sleep/ That thing and I weren’t friends even before I was pregnant and it’s nice to see that really hasn’t changed much.

So, the joys of staying in a hospital after giving birth, just ugh! I mean, do these nurses and doctors have a special class in how to disturb a patient when they are sleeping so they can poke and prod you? Hell, it reminds me of waiter and waitresses that ask, how’s your meal” when your mouth is full, lol.

Anytime J finally went to sleep along comes a nurse . . .
It’s time for his bath
It’s time for some test
It’s time for some shots
I need to take his vitals

I mean seriously, can’t you guys do this when he is…I don’t know, actually awake? He does stay awake for a while you know, sheesh!

One day we really had a rough night and didn’t get much sleep at all until like after 1 in the afternoon. Sure enough as soon as we got to sleep all cuddle up I get this nice beep from the nurses station . . .

Nurse, May, can I come in and get your vitals?

Me, *grumbles curse* sure, why not.

Of course she then felt bad after she discovered that we had just finally went to sleep and told all other doctors and nurses to like wait until either I call them or they see the light on my phone is on, then they’d know I was awake, lol.

Now J definitely had all the nurses fooled and you think they would have caught on after like the third time, but noooooo, hahahah.

Since they kept disturbing his sleep to do some kind of poking and prodding on him, he got to the point where he’d show signs of he really really needed to eat…like right now! He’d really start sucking his fingers or opening his mouth really big and looking for his food. So they’d bring him to me and be like . . .

Nurse, May, he’s really hungry!

However, hahah, the moment they handed him to me, he curl up, close his eyes and went to sleep.

Me, Are you sure he was hungry?
Nurse, yes, he was like sucking on his fingers and everything.
Me, mhmm, sure sure, doesn’t look like it to me. Looks like he fooled you guys, hahaha.

Now for our time at home

Another night owl?
Ooopps, think I created another night owl. As if I wasn’t enough in this household, lol.

Baby J will sleep just fine during the day in his room or in his play-yard, but come night time…no way, forget it. I can’t get him to stay in his room to save my life for more than 10 or 15 minutes. Unless he is with me and we’re laying down in our bed, he will not go to sleep. He must be up with mommy. Hmm, think this may pose a problem when I go back to work, lol.

Daddy earns his *over here* blind sign from baby J
One day Jerry went to give J his pacifier and J like took his little hand and shoved his daddy’s hand towards his face like…over here dad, my mouth is this way! Hahahahah, this has happened twice this week.

The funny thing is, J does not do this with me at all. Kind of reminds me of my daughter and how she was when she was little with the whole blindness thing with her dad and I. She’d be one way with me and a completely different way with her dad. So for now it looks like J will be like his sister there, but only time will tell.

Baseball player when he grows up?
Speaking of that darn pacifier, I kind of hate that he’s gotten attached to one, but ah well. Could be worse things he’s attached to, right?

Well, we think he could be one hell of a baseball player if he chooses. The little guy can definitely throw the pacifier far when he decides he doesn’t want it. There have been times it’s at the other end of his bed or on the other side of his play-yard. And of course if we take too long finding it to give it back to him he gets pissed off! lol, figure that one. It’s not our fault little guy that you decided to throw it across the moon and we have to hunt for it, smiles.

music snob!
Wow, only a week old and already lets us know what music he refuses to listen too. Jerry and I run our own radio station, www.phoenixfirefm.net that has a family side and an adult side and one day we decided that we’d have kids music play on the family side and put that on in Jaydon’s room. Well, that went over like a led balloon! He was not pleased with our choice of music for him. He let us know in his way of course…by screaming, that that was not the music he was use to hearing and he wanted it gone and right now!

Another time he was laying in his play-yard and the live version of “Hot Blooded” by Foreigner came on and he screamed about that one too, lol.

So, that’s been our week with the little guy so far. Stay tuned because I’m sure they will be more!

Third times the charm, happy birthday baby J

Whew, what a busy time it’s been! Lets update everyone that hasn’t already heard the news and hopefully get the blog caught back up, smiles.

As everyone knows that last week, last Tuesday afternoon I went into the hospital because baby J was trying once again to enter the world early and the results of that lovely visit. If you don’t remember, then, check that out here

Now lets move ahead to early Friday morning about 2AM eastern standard time. I end up in the hospital yet again because J says he wants out now! This time the staff is extremely rude in the fact that they made me feel like what the hell am i doing there, it’s all about the baby and you as the mother really don’t matter. Comments like, “the baby is fine so you’ll be ok.” I tell them I’m the one stressed out due to the pain he’s causing along with the contractions and I get, “oh, just relax and you’ll be fine. The baby is what’s important and he’s looking good. What’s a little discomfort to a healthy baby. You do want him coming out healthy right?” Um, like really. What a way to make the mom depressed and feel like crap, right?

So anyways, around 10:30-11AM our doctor comes in once again and states that “if the contractions were still 5 to 6 minutes apart she’d take little guy out, but since they’re not . . .”

By then I lost it and just cried even more. Once again how I felt and my concerns meant nothing even to my doctor! I was getting ready to call my bf and let him know that I’d be heading home once again to suffer because the doctors and nurses didn’t give a damn, but before that happened, here comes the fun part!

Baby J

No no no no nos, no mores upsetting my mommys and keeping mes in here. I wants out and I wants out rights now!

Five minutes after my doctor left my hospital room she came back in and said, “well the contractions picked back up so I’m going to check you out to see if you’ve dilated.”

The next thing I hear is . . . “oh crap, she has.”

Doctor, How soon can your husband get here?
Me, I don’t know, he’s has to call work and find a ride.
Doctor, um, well, do you think he can get here by 12:30?
Me, um, well, I think so, but he’ll definitely try super hard.

Come to find out that J was not screwing around this time. He meant business and they were taking him out by c-section or he was coming out naturally. He apparently made me dilate a lot, where if she waited any longer it would be taken from her by J, lol.

So needless to say I was then quickly prep for that c-section that wasn’t suppose to happen until August 29. BF/daddy made it there by 1pm and baby J was born at 1:59PM.

He entered the world weighing 7lbs, 8 ounces, 20 inches long, a head full of dark hair and blue eyes and to show his displeasure to the nurses and doctors that upset his mommy and forced him to stay in longer than he wanted…he peed on them! hahahahahahahah

Wow, let me tell you this boy has some powerful ass lungs on him! They pulled him out and within 2 seconds he definitely made his voice heard.

Doctor, now that’s what I like to hear.
Me, I told you had nothing to worry about. He demanded he was ready. Should have listened the first time.

So from this moment forward the pregnancy entries have ended and the fun of baby J has begun! I hope you’re ready for the ride…we’re in for trouble now!

Baby J tries again! Lets me out, part2

To my poor sicks mommy. Why won’t that doctor lets me out and makes you be all sick? Don’t she cares that you hurts and that I’s not comfortables in here? Just shes wait until I sees her. When she pulls me out I will spit up on hers ok? That okays mommy?

This will be a long post!

Yes ladies and gentlemen, baby J tried once more to enter the world early and this time he was not playing around like last month. Without warning contractions hit me like a huge freight train! They were so bad that I was crying and could barely walk when the ambulance showed up.

At 3:10PM eastern standard time the contractions started without warning and by 4:00PM I was on the way to the hospital. The contractions were coming in fast and furious with hardly anytime between them. Baby J was not kidding around this time. He wanted out and he wanted out right then! The poor ambulance guys didn’t know where we were going once we reach LMH, (Lima Memorial Hospital), but since we were just there on Monday plus the week before I could tell them where to go.

This time I was in room 7 with the uncomfortable bed. Man I swear that hospital needs better beds, just ow ow ow!! Anyways, one of the nurses that was there was one that just saw me on Monday and was like….weren’t you just here yesterday?

Those nurses plus the ambulance guys could definitely see i was having contractions and in some major major pain and could barely stand up. They were trying really hard to keep my spirits up and make me laugh instead of cry and I appreciate and thank them for that. I do have to say I seriously hate the machines they have to use to watch for contractions. For whatever reason with me, don’t know if this has happened to others, but the stupid things never pick up all the contractions. It baffled the nurses since they could see plus feel my stomach and tell that they were there. Damn technology!

So, they quickly get me switched into their lovely gowns, hooked to an IV for fluids, the awesome monitor to hear J and give me the first shot to try and stop the contractions. All the while baby J is like . . .

I knows likes it! Lets me out out out! *stretch stretch, kick kick, jab jab jab, push push push*

And his heartbeats sound like horses going full speed at the races! While my blood pressure was all over the place from as high as 162\116 to 124\83 and my pulse readings weren’t good either, but I don’t remember those numbers.

They discover that everything is still closed up as it should be and give me some pain med called Staydoll…sorry if that’s not spelled right. It totally kicks my ass! I get super shaky, dizzy, the world is spinning and I feel like I’m going to be sick all over the place! Definitely a medicine that my body says to *stay out!*

Here’s where things start to get really fun!

I’m feeling like total crap here and around 7:00PM eastern time they decide to bring me food and water and tell me that it’s all I get in case they decide for a c-section in the morning. Just great! Give me something after a pain med that’s kicking my ass and tell me it’s all I get, thanks! But wait, it gets better!

7:15PM eastern standard time they take away the water…oops, sorry can’t have that after all. Nothing by mouth now. Thank goodness I was able to finish the sandwich right before that and made it stay down.

Meanwhile, the first stop contractions shot isn’t working and baby J is demanding . . .

Lets me outs of here! I wants out now now now! Aren’t yous listening to mes? *push push push*

Round 2 of the stop contractions shot along with more pain meds, but a different kind now that also makes you feel sick and dizzy. Sorry if I spell it wrong as well, but it was something like Newid? I didn’t react badly to it, but it definitely didn’t make me feel great!

The contractions are still coming hard and fast while the stupid machine still isn’t picking them all up and I have this one dumb nurse named Ashley that had the nerve to say I was mistaking the contractions with the baby moving….excuse me! I’m blind, not stupid and this isn’t my first ride on this pregnant train you know!

Yeah, she was like feeling my stomach…which means she was feeling the contractions and saying it was the baby. She also told me, “I see why you like staying on your left side…because that’s where he is.” Um no, I stay on the left side because it’s actually the better side to lay on when pregnant…*duh* more oxygen to the baby and all that. Where the hell did she go to school?

We’ll skip ahead a bit here to around 8:30AM eastern standard time. I still have not had anything to drink, eat, ice chips nothing and I get yet another pain med shot because the pain is still way up there in the atmosphere! The nurses still haven’t heard yet on if they will take J out or not, so I wait wait wait and wait some more! Baby J is pissed because he hasn’t had food or anything to drink in hours and this makes things worse…for me of course! J is doing just fine according to all the monitors, except for the fact that he wants out and no one is listening yet again!

My lovely doctor shows up at 10:30AM and sees that I’m in pain, sees that I’m crying, but decides because all is well with J that she is not going to take him. Doesn’t matter how I feel that my blood pressure is still super high and that I’m stressed to no end…nope, lets hold off until the 29th and just come back if things start up again! It makes no difference that this is the second time that J has made it known that he’s done cooking and he’s ready to enter the world!

Don’t get me wrong, I completely understand her trying to hold doff until the date we picked, but if the baby is saying . . .

Lets me out out out!! Don’t you hears me?

And on the mom side of things, things aren’t looking great, don’t you think you should reconsider?

So anyways, she says no and the nurses do their damnedest to pretty much throw me out the door..where’s that cab, lets get you home now. Get out, see you! They don’t even help me get my clothes back on despite the fact I’m puking all over the place, dizzy and just yeah! Great service right! See you on Monday for your next stress test unless you have more pain and blah blah!

I get back home just in time to get sick from the car ride and wasn’t able to keep any food or drink down until around 10PM eastern last night. The medicine is still in my system, but thank god it’s not as bad now. I sound more like myself and can walk without feeling like the world is going to throw me off of it. However, I’m still in a great deal of pain, but I guess I just have to grin and bare it until my doctor takes J out.

That was our adventure, wasn’t it great? Until next time!

All about the winter melon. 2 weeks to go!

Whew, we are still alive, honest!

For those receiving this via email there is a video in this entry. You should know the drill now, smiles. www.youtube.com/canadianlynx1 and look for 36 weeks.

Wow, I’ve been so busy that I haven’t had a chance to update everyone in a while, bad me! So lets give a refresher, shall we?

Last month we were in training for a job with Red Roof Inn and our lovely little hellion decided he’s had enough and he was ready to come out! look right here to check out J complaining to management and to this day he is still very determined that he wants out right now and does not want to wait until his eviction date!

roll roll roll, stretch stretch stretch

Baby J
Hellos out there! I’s still stucks in here! Hows does I gets out of here’s? *push push push* I’s find a ways out!

Ow ow ow ow, that was my rib kiddo! Whew, I’m to the point where I agree with the little hellion….let, him, out, already! My body will thank you, lol.

Right now the little monster is having a blast pushing against my ribs and dragging his foot back and forth while I try and right this! *ow ow ow ow ow* How much longer is left?

So, we finished training and got back home from Springfield Ohio on July 29th and the following week, the first week of August started the doctors doctors and more doctors visit. yep, I now have my second home at the doctors. On Mondays I visit the hospital where J will actually be born and on Fridays I have my appointment that’s here in town.

The first week which I said was August 1, we were pretty concerned that they might have to take the little guy early due to the fat he tried coming out early already. Plus, on top of that some people decided it would be a *great* idea to stress me out and my blood pressure went *waaaaaaay* up and that was concerning for the doctor as well. But, in the end Mr. J still doesn’t get his way and has to wait!

Baby J
No no no no nos, I nos likes it. I nos wants to waits! *push push push, stretch stretch stretch* Lets me outs I says!

last week, which was week 36 we got more stuff for Jaydon, diapers, coothes and other important things like that and lets just say his bed was completely buried! Check it out! For those that can see, his bedding is pretty cool, smiles.

Also last week at the hospital part of the visit during the ultrasound we were told that he was happily sucking his thumb. He didn’t have a care in the world since not long before that I gave him his favorite, apple juice!

Baby J
kick kick kicks, roll roll, Apple juices, me wants apple juice!

Yeah, I probably shouldn’t have just thought that, hahaha. Better wrap this up soon so I can go find that apple juice before he really gets going!

We’re now at week 37 with just 2, count them, 2 weeks to go and the little winter melon is quite active and still bound and determined that he will get his way. Since he like never sleeps I must say that it’s fun trying to work and talk to callers making reservations when you have a little monster kicking your butt and really making his views known about his crappy accommodations!

push push push push, stretch stretch stretch.I sits on mommys blatter! Takes that mommy. kicks kicks kicks!

Ow ow ow, ok, guess I’m done writing now! *groans* my poor ribs. Oof, and back the the bathroom I go too it looks like!

So until next time from the land of the winter melon and I, take care all! And someone pleeeeeease send me sleeping darts for the monster!

Check out time for baby J?

Me: Good evening and thanks for calling Red Roof Inn Springfield, how may I help you?

Baby j; Mommy, mommy, mommy, let me out of here!!! The room is too small, I need bigger space! Whats do I has to do to gets more room?

Me: I’m sorry to hear you’re unhappy with your room little guy, but I see here that we won’t have anything for you until August 29, 2016 which is 6 weeks from now.

Baby J; but but buts, I wants out now now now now! Lets me outs of here! *jab jab, stretch, kicks* I’s not happy! Me demands you lets me out!

hahaha, welcome to the latest update of the little hellion and mommy, smiles. For those that missed the last update we are currently in Springfield Ohio for job training for Red Roof Inn the hotel. I will be at the end of it all able to join the land of reservation agents for this hotel, yay! Whew, let me tell you it is lots to learn, but I am enjoying it.

week 1
Our training class is pretty small with just 5 of us. It’s an *interesting* group for sure, smiles. Our Red Roof Inn trainers are freakin awesome and make the class amusing at times!

So, I finally discovered how to get Jaydon to be still. lol, too bad it doesn’t last long, only about 5 minutes, hahahaha. We discovered that the little guy *loves* it when we go swimming. So much so that I have to watch out for my own safety. He gets so excited and pushes around in there that he can make me crash into the wall or steps or hahah daddy if I’m not paying attention!

What the hell was in that meal?
Thursday night of the first week I had meatloaf and mashed potatoes and lets just say baby J went *nuts*

baby J: jab jab jab, stretch stretch stretch poke poke poke
me: ow ow ow ow ow! Oh dear this isn’t good.

I just figured the little guy was in a mood to seriously idk my butt and ignored it until Saturday night.

baby J: Hellos out there! *punch punch punch, jab jab jab* lets me out of here!
Me: oh hell, I think I better go to the hospital because things just aren’t right.

Hello Springfield Ohio’s birthing staff, nice to meet you sooner than I wanted!

Yep, you read that right. I had to go to the hospital due to all the pain that Jaydon was causing. Turns out that those lovely braxton hicks turned into contractions that were 3 minutes apart!

Me: Holy hell! No no no no no, baby J you can not come out right now!
Baby J: I’s wants out! *push push push* looks at me! Mommy mommy mommy, lets me come out!
Nurses: Wow, what a strong active little boy. You’re going to have fun with him. Good luck!
Me: hahahaha, I’ll need it.

It took 2 breathine shots to finally get the contractions to stop, but little J made sure I knew he wasn’t happy with the fact that I stopped him from coming out. They saw in the ultrasound that he stretched *completely* out with the biggest smile on his face and waved at the camera like he didn’t have a care in the world that he was currently beating up his mother, lol.

week 2
Baby J: *knock knock knock* I’s still here’s mommy! I wants out of here’s still. I has no room! *push push push, kick kick kick* Lets me out out out! Don’t you wants to hold me’s mommy? I wants to meets people!
me: no no no J you still have 6 weeks to go. You must stay in there! Ow ow ow! Someone send me a baby tranqulizer!

It’s a very good thing that we record the training classes because it’s super hard to concentrate on what’s going on when there is a kid trying to become a Red Roof Inn baby! Jaydon is bound and determine that he wants to be born in Springfield. He’s definitely heard that his mommy and daddy will be moving here, but what he fails to realize that that won’t happen until early next year!

Baby J: no no no, I doesn’t wants to waits! Out out out! *stretch stretch stretch, jab jab jab, kick kick kick* Stops ignoring me mommy and lets me out! Someone tells her to lets me out!

What will week 3 of training bring? Hopefully *not* the little honeydew hellion!

Only 8 weeks left!

For those that receive this via email there is a video in this entry. You know the drill, go to www.youtube.com/canadianlynx1 and look for *pregnant May week 31*

Can you believe it, there’s only 8 weeks to go! How time flies when you’re expecting a Mexican jumping bean!

Our little hellion is doing just great. *active* is an understatement! Baby J does not know the meaning of the word *sleep* or anything that is even remotely close to it.

We had our last doctors appointment on Friday, July 1 and his heart rate for this visit was sitting at 148, smiles.

Let me tell you that this time when we heard his heartbeat, we had the crap scared out of us! We’re not sure if it’s how baby J was hanging out in there or how the nurse was holding the monitor, but it seriously sounded like there was 2, count them, 2 heartbeats going off!

All that was going through our minds at the time was *oh no,* is it 2 in there? No no no no! It just can’t be, lol.

The eviction time has been set and will be carried out at 9AM on August 29, yay! This means I have to be at the hospital at 7AM, *groans*

Now, here’s the bad news and why Jaydon will absolutely hate me! Our doctor once again is making me be mean to our little guy. I can not, repeat, can, not, eat after midnight! *cries* He can’t have his apple juice or any of his favorite drinks!

I did warn our doctor that she’ll be pulling out a pissed off little boy and she laughed. Ha, she thinks I’m joking!

Mommy weight game 2.0
The weight game has started over due to the fact that we were running out of contestants from the first round, smiles. So if you want to get in another guess for round 2.0 of what will I weigh come August 29, then get those guesses in now. I’m now sitting at between 181 and 183 with 8 weeks left to go!

Current guesses are:
1. 185
2. 195
3. 200

Now, here’s the video for everyone to see what I look like now. This video was done on Sunday before we left for Springfield Ohio. ISorry for voiceover that just *would not* shut up!

Baby J’s height and weight game
We also started a new game Saturday night for baby J. What do you think he’ll be by the time his eviction date rolls around?

current guesses:

The road to Red Roof Inn

Ha, as I’ve already heard from one person, “I didn’t know you were looking for a job.” Well, I don’t know what to tell you since it’s ben posted pretty often since March, smiles. But of course since the other big thing going on is the baby it’s not hard to over look the non-baby messages, smiles.

Thanks to a friend of mine named Wes telling me about his work at home job I started the process of applying for the same job. Let me say it seemed like a long process and thank goodness I had baby J to keep me preoccupied, lol.

So to work for Red Roof Inn you first have to go through your blind related service. Here it’s Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities. From what I understand it’s pretty much just like or what BSVI use to be. All confusing if you ask me, lol.

So anyways, once you get in touch with your worker or sign up you let them know that you are interested in working for Red Roof Inn through Goodwill Easter Seals. If you’re lucky you have an awesome worker and the beginning process moves along pretty smoothly.

If not, well, then you probably end up with a worker who pretty much does nothing and you have to chase down to get answers like these:

I haven’t heard anything yet. just be patient.
Hurry and get this paperwork done so that we can hopefully fast track your application because training starts in April.
Oh, because you haven’t worked before they may be more interested in having you work somewhere else for a little while to get experience.

Or even better your worker may forget to let the job location know that your biggest concern is you being pregnant and you want to know if it would work against me for training and such and would be better to wait.

Moving right along. The next step is getting a Goodwill worker who works with you by preparing you for the screening interviews, finding out what you would need to work for Red Roof from home and just pretty much get a feel for who you are.

I just have to say that my person through Goodwill is just awesome! She’s kept in touch every step of the way since we met near the end of May. She’s been very reassuring when it came to me being pregnant and worked really hard to find out when training would be so that I could actually attend if all went well.

After you meet your Goodwill worker comes the first screening call and it’s done through Goodwill with a person named Bev and probably Jenny. During this call they find out things like what screen reader you use or large print software, go over a few of the scripts that would end up being your friend, tell you about the shifts that are open and things like that.They do ask a few questions relating to your work experience and what would you do in this situation type questions.

If all goes well during that call, you move right along to the Red Roof Inn interview. Now this can be done in 2 parts, the phone interview and then the face to face. If you get to the face to face there is also a typing test involved and you get to sit in and listen to some calls and a few other things.

Now I didn’t get to the face to face portion, yay! I had the phone interview yesterday morning and that’s where my road to working ends!

I was so so so nervous when it was time for my call because I have never worked before and this would be my first. I’ve wanted it since March when I first heard about it and with being pregnant and now near the end I was afraid it would stop me. But I shouldn’t have feared and listened to my bf and my Goodwill worker that was pretty sure I’d definitely get hired! smiles.

I HAVE A JOB!

What I will be doing is all the reservation type stuff and it’s a work at home job which is great! I’ll only take the short time off during the week I’ll be in the hospital evicting baby J, smiles. Since I like never sleep and I’m a night owl I’m going to be going for the third shift which is like the 11PM to 7AM shift.

Starting July 5, 2016 I will be going into training for one month with Red Roof Inn and I can’t wait! So once again it’s training time coming up for the blog along with baby entries hahah. So don’t miss the non-baby stuff, smiles.
