Prenatal appointments, huge zits and freezing rain fill my brain.

This week I have not one but two prenatal appointments scheduled. I am now in my 15th week of pregnancy (yippie!) and will be meeting Pamela @ The Farm this weekend. We are also seeing the OBGYN on Thursday morning for our 3rd prenatal appointment. N is anticipating the prenatal appointments because he gets anxious to hear that little Tater Tot's heart is still beating. He admitted last night that it is hard for him to trust that all is going as planned with Tater Tot inside my uterus since he can't feel any movement yet or experience the growth and body changes I am going through. Although he does admit to having sympathy symptoms right along with me. I let him feel the tightness in my lower belly where Tater Tot...

It's too cold for cereal and other musings..

Updates on the baby finches

Today I got one of the hatchlings out of the stinky nest. As you can see in the photo they are getting fed and are starting to get their feathers. Our chicks are about 7-10 days old and they are growing like crazy! Do you see the seed looking stuff under the skin between it's neck and body? That is the food they have been fed, it's called the crop. The babies have opened their eyes and are also getting much stronger now. They are now able to move around the inside the nest on their own and their feathers are really starting to...

More winter weather is on the way and we have more babies!

Well it looks like I am getting my wish for snow! We had a light snow storm last weekend and we are expected to get another one this weekend that will actually be starting tomorrow. This is great for Christmas cheer but bad for Christmas tree cutting. We had planned to cut our tree down last weekend but the storm stopped us, then we said we would do it this weekend but it looks as though the storm is stopping us again...
