As it does every year, the unbearable humidity and heat starts dissipating followed by the pools closing and then being able to open the windows and give the a/c a break, yeah, it's going itno the fall season which is my favorite time of year.
Not only is my birthday in the last part of October, but that is also when we got married and Halloween time. I just love the smell of the crisp autumn air with the dry colorful leaves framing the yards in a portrait-like way.
I'm am looking forward to Halloween so much this year since Shayna is older and will probably enjoy it more so than last year. I have no idea what she is going to be this year, but I do know that I want it be something ever so girly.
Aside from all my rambling on the fall season and leaves, blah, blah, blah, we decided to re-list our house with a different realtor since our old one wasn't doing the job. Not only that, but we have decided to move to Tennessee instead of Texas. There were many factors that contributed to this decision, but it basically boils down to money and HOA fees.
Well, I'm off to do some laundry and clean up the house some.... there will be some pics to follow later.

Since I know that virtually no one reads my blog, and it's just to release my anger/feelings/frustrations, I'm once again sitting here contemplating why it's fair for all these women around me who get pregnant just by looking at them funny, yet, DH and I are in a loving and committed relationship and have been trying for 10 months now. Seriously, how is it fair? Then I have "friends" on myspace commenting daily about wanting to get an abortion and that just sends a wave of different emotions through me and I want to cry. I'm at the point where I just don't care anymore and just want to call it quits. This is what I want to see again, but that's all just wishful thinking
Aside from all my depression on the getting pregnant situation at hand, the past few days were so beautiful and I finally got to take Shayna outside for a few days in a row without layers of clothes and she had so much fun. Here is Miss Drama Queen herselfOh, and of course, it wouldn't be complete without pics of her running around the house too.

So, my wonderful hubby was finally released from the hospital this past Thursday and he is feeling much better. I'm so glad he is home, it may sound cheesy, but we actually miss each other when we're apart for a few hours, let alone 4 days. I guess we're one of those couples that can sometimes make you gag, but we are madly in love, and I wouldn't trade him for anything. Ok, enough of my mushy and sappy ramblings for now. I'm finally sitting down and enjoying some much needed ME time after dealing with what I will call my "replacement baby" for the fifth day in a row now. I'm calling her my "replacement baby" because I haven't quite figured out what happened to happy-as-a-clam Shayna. I swear someone pulled a switch-a-roo in the middle of the night or something. She used to be perfectly content with her toys and playing in her saucer, but for the past 5 days, she has turned into "Miss Royal Highness" drama queen with an attitude. She has became so clingy and whiny it's ridiculous and then she screams if I try to hold her when that's what she was wanting. She cries for no reason running around the living room, cries if I leave her sight, cries if I try to feed her anything other than fruit or spaghetti, and she used to eat anything and everything. Man, it's been rough around here, lol. Oh, and here's a perfect example: This was taken today. I walked two steps out of her sight to get the camera out of the car, and she lost it.
Oh, and let's not forget the few times she was happy inside today, which was not very often.

David was very sick last week, and he went to the doctor yesterday. Turns out his has pneumonia and was admitted into the hospital. They have him on an iv and antibiotics to fight it off; they expect a 2-3 day stay. I miss him so bad, but I know he needs to get better. So, I took Shayna up there yesterday, and that was quite an adventure. She was not happy and pretty much screamed the whole time, she just doesn't do well with strange environments and it really freaked her out. Needless to say, I only stayed about 20 minutes and then had to go to Walmart afterwards. I'm going back today to see him after she wakes up from a nap so hopefully she'll do better today.

We finally had Shayna's party yesterday. The YMCA did everything for us, and I was pretty impressed w/ all they did at the incredible price. The cake was pretty, but it wasn't very good, but I can't complain about it since it was free. The day went pretty well, but Shayna was a mixture of unpredictable emotions with all the people that were there. She got a lot of summer clothes which is what she really needed, two gift cards, and a few other little things. I'll leave you w/ a bunch of pics from the party.
Oh, we can't forget about the cleanup to get the cake out of her hair when we got home.

So, I guess that's pretty much it for now, I just really needed somewhere to vent about my frustrations and depression I guess. Shayna's party is tomorrow after being rescheduled for the the blizzard, so I'll post some pics from it in the next few days.

Amongst the million things that float through my mind daily, I am wondering who took away my delicate newborn baby and gave her this newfound sense of independence that she is developing, and while she relies on David and I for everything, she is changing so fast and it's very bittersweet for me. I have watched her achieve every milestone with both happiness and sadness at the same time. She just started taking her first steps on the 13th and that is so surreal to me. Soon, she will be one, oh how the time flies.
On to a lighter note, I have been trying to wake up my dear sweet husband for an hour now so we can go get a few things and I have had no such luck. I try so hard to do things around Shayna's nap and now that's out the window. For those of you who don't know, cranky babies and Wal-Mart do not mesh very well. Enough said.

We have also got a dog since the last time I wrote anything here. We actually got her back in October and she a little weiner dog named Sadie. We call her the "teenie weenie" Don't tell her she's a dog because she truly thinks she's human. We still have our outside dog Molly, and she comes in sometimes especially when it's storming or really cold outside and my house turns into a zoo then. Sadie runs around and constantly bugs her until Molly gets fed up and gives her a little nip to let her know she's had enough.
