Yes the end is near. Baby girl is not out yet, but I can't wait to evict...err...umm...see her soon - hehehe! No new digi stamps this week! It's killing me to have to slow down now, but my body is starting is telling me to take it easy. This past weekend I had Braxton Hicks (false labour pains) that lasted all day and through a small portion of Sunday. They were actually quite painful and I was a little worried it could be the real deal. But they were so inconsistent, I just knew I didn't have to go to the hospital. I never had anything like this with my first pregnancy, so we were prepared with hospital bag loaded in the van, and had the car seat installed. Thank goodness this all happened on the weekend! I am really starting to regret not taking time off of work now. But we need the money, as I know from the first pregnancy how fast we went through all of the money we had saved up. I am worried about my water breaking while at work...but you gotta do what you gotta do - right?
I have been up since 2AM... :(
I had a weird dream last night I was on the bus with this scary homeless looking man with silver teeth. He was causing a commotion, and threatening to do something to hurt people, and of course I was trying to find a way to safely get off the bus without drawing attention to myself. I knew this was going to be quite the task, as my belly could not be well hidden from the dangerous man who lurked the bus. Figures, the man noticed me, and pointed out that I was pregnant. I tried to act like he wasn't there and changed seats, where he proceeded to follow me. I managed to get off the bus and make my way to work. Somehow I ended up in a school hallway, but this was also where I worked. The receptionist was trying to lift my shirt up to see my belly, and this made me quite uncomfortable as my fellow co-workers watched. So as I fought her off, I felt this huge stretch in my belly. I looked down and there was a perfect mold of a foot and leg poking out! SO GROSS! I remember everyone staring at my belly and pointing as I tried to bend the baby's leg back into my belly...and then I woke up in a sweat!!! What a strange dream eh? They say dreams have meaning. I think my dream means my life is chaotic right now with fears of leaving work, and wondering how the baby is going to greet us. I haven't slept since, but I cuddled up to my little boy who was sleeping in his bed. I thought and wondered about stuff like how it was going to be with just me home with the baby, and Kolby running wild. I know it is going to be a challenge for sure! Kolby is going through that 3 year old stage where he has these crazy bursts of energy, which is fine and healthy...but I know from my first pregnancy how tired I was in the beginning. But hey, if my Mum could do it with 4 kids without help, I really shouldn't be complaining! :) I CAN DO THIS!!!
At 5:00 AM this morning, I decided to go downstairs to make some breakfast and a huge cup of coffee. At 5:30, I heard little feet come down the stairs. There stood my little buddy. I made him some breakfast too, and we chillaxed and talked for a while. Eventually he fell back to sleep as I looked on with jealousy, wishing I could be in La-La Land too. Does anyone have any toothpicks to hold these lids of mine open today? *YAAAAAWN* He looks so cute laying there! Well, I'm off to start my work day. If this rambling blog post doesn't make any sense, I blame it on this baby and my lack of sleep this whole week - LOL! Have a crafty day ladies! Now to finish of that coff of cupee. ;) Oh right, I knocked it over and it spilt into the carpet - yup I did - oh lovely day!

- I'm a wife, a mother, and a full time illustrator. I have a son who is 4, and a new baby girl who was born August 2012! Drawing & Digital painting is my life, but wish drawing digis was my full time job b/c I get so much satisfaction from it! For now it is a hobby that is mainly for my babies, and my escape from the strict guideline of the lisenced properties I work on in everyday life! I LOVE my day job too. I create small MMO games for major featured films, anything ranging from Dreamworks Madagascar, Ice Age, Tin Tin, or Puss In Boots to projects as small as My Little Pony, Barbie, and Hello Kitty to name a small few. I enjoy painting traditionally and digitally, and there are days where I wish I had four arms so I can do everything! Family comes first for me - life is just too short, so I try to find a happy balance between crafts and my full time career.
