Frustration.

I'm frustrated and I'm trying so hard not to be.
I know that if I need help to just say something, but I shouldn't HAVE to say 'I need help.' Like seriously...this is your child too. Instead my frustration is shown to my son. NO! Do NOT get that confused with taken out on my son!!! I would never put my hands on my child in an abusive way. What I mean by that is he can sense my frustration and in turn, he acts on it. He feels frustrated, upset, sad etc. Everything that his mother is feeling....he starts to feel.

So again...why don't I say something? Because I lack communication. I can't seem to get the words out right. I end up yelling or get even more frustrated and then he feels like I'm belittling him and then I feel guilty. So then the cycle continues.

The only way I feel better I guess is by putting it down on 'paper'. I know he senses my frustration I just wish he would realize that its towards him. We've been together for 7 years, I…

36 Weeks Pregnant!

Yes, I am!
After six years, Alex and I were finally blessed with a little one. A little boy to be exact.

We found out 4 days before Christmas 2015, and told our parents that night. It was their Christmas present.
First Ultrasound was at 10 weeks. His heartbeat was 157 bpm and as much as I wanted a girl, I knew from the moment I saw the ultrasound he was a boy.
Two weeks later...we let Lucky make the announcement to the world.
After, the world knew..Alex and I made a trip to Michigan for the last time until the big move back in May. Once back in Kansas, Alex left for 7 weeks to recruiting school.


When he left I was 14 weeks...when he came back I was 22 weeks. It was a huge difference.

The nice thing about Alex coming home, besides the fact that I missed him terribly, was that that was the same week we would find out if we were Team Pink or Team Blue. The day of our 22 week ultrasound, I had to drink 1 Liter of water within a half hour 1 1/2 hours before my appointment. Did I mention, I…
