Not Even Funny

I am so excited, it's not even funny! I finally got my Nikon D40x! Here are some pics that I took as soon as I got the lens on and the battery charged!

Chase had his 6 month appointment with his pediatrician today. Here are the stats:
Length: 28.5 in. (95%)
Weight: 20.02 lbs. (90%)
Head: 18 in. (95%)
As you can see, he is a BIG BOY! I honestly cannot believe that he's 6 months already! My baby is growing up so fast. Oh, that makes me kinda sad. I think that I'm going to enter him into this contest. The winner gets to be on some sort of baby food box, and I have been saying that I would like to get Chase into something of that nature, because, after all, he is a beautiful baby.

This blog, of course, is about work. I just do not understand why they (the supervisors) don't schedule enough people. Seriously. Ugh. I really do not want to work there until the end of September. I don't think that I can make it. I was about ready to leave today. At least Molly, Bengina, and Jeanie-poo are there to keep me company. I hope that Ben gets a job at Whole Foods with Molly, Jean and I. That would be rad-tacular. Ok, nuff for now, must take a nap.

He was scared

I told Ian that I want another baby, and do you know what he did? He walked away as if I hadn't uttered a word. I guess that's my answer there. Makes me sad. I really don't want Chase to be an only child. But I also don't want my kids to be too close together, AND I don't know if we can afford another one. Still, I WANT another one. Maybe he just needs time to warm up to the thought of having another. I really want to start trying again in March. If I got pregnant then, it would make the two kids 2 years apart, which is good. Ok, I must sleep. Good Night.

He's growing too fast!

Just 15 minutes ago, this is how I found Chase in his swing:

I think that he's too heavy for his swing, so now we have to either sell it to a consignment shop, or store it away.

There's 2!/Don't Know Why

Yes, you read right. Chase officially has two front teeth, on the bottom. I can't believe it. At the rate that he's going, he'll have a whole grip of teeth by the time he's a year. On another note, I don't know why I torture myself. I miss being pregnant in a big way, but dumb me keeps looking at the pics of all of my preggo friends and watching stupid shows like "A Baby Story", etc. I would love to be preggo again, but I know that Ian would flip. I'm also worried how I would do with 2 in diapers. I would be outta my mind, thats for sure. Well, off to bed. I have to be at work at 530!

The Woes of Teething

So Chase cut a tooth around the 4th of July, I thought he wouldn't be so cranky. Silly, silly mommy. He is getting another on right next to the first one. He is usually a very happy, loving, content boy. However, this week has been pure hell. He won't nap, won't eat, won't play. I feel bad for him, so we got some baby Orajel. Seems to work. Poor guy. He is gnawing on everything, even tables. He's finally taking a nap.

OH MY!!!!

I just remembered that it's FRIDAY THE THIRTEENTH!! Well, it's been good to me so far. *Knock on Wood*


So I was supposed to go to a job fair for Whole Foods with Molly and Jean. But, since we only have one car right now, I decided not to go. BIG MISTAKE. They both got jobs in the Prepared Foods department. So I decided to play hooky from work and then I went to the job fair. I got a job. Cashier once again. It's what I do best. I've had 3 years of experience. Oh if you don't know, Whole Foods is an organic store. Everything is organic or natural. No uniform, so you can wear whatever you want. You can have tats (good for me!) and piercings, too! Oh yeah, $11.00 an hour! I'll be working at the new store in Chandler (Ray and the 101) so closer to home too. I am so excited, you have no idea! Oh and I get 20% off! WooHoo!! Organic baby food for Chase! Now I get to go to bed and go to my other job. The one that I hate.

So long ago....

It seems like almost yesterday that Chase Robert was born. It took 26 hours of labor, and a c-section to get bring him into this world. I loved him before I saw him. I loved him more after I met him. He is such a beautiful child.


I started back to work on Sunday. Two words: HATE IT. They want me to cram 12 hours worth of work into 8. Plus, it's at least 100 degrees in there. I asked my supervisor how she expects me to do all that I am supposed to in the time alloted and she said "you just have to move fast" and that "it's not that hard. Don't cry about it!" Wha? Wow, very nice. The only reason that I am still there is because of the insurance. Oh and I do get a discount at Dell, and if you order something, they just deduct it from your payroll. So we are are getting a 37" LCD HDTV and for myself (drumroll please)...... A NIKON D40X! YES! That's one of the best cameras out there. You think I take good pics now? Just wait til I get my hands on this camera! I'll be able to do so much more. The camera I have now is just a point and shoot Canon Powershot A520. Only 4 mega pixels. The Nikon is a Digital SLR (Single Lens Reflex) and 10.2 mega pixels. WOOHOO! Okay enough about that.

Long time no write

I haven't written in awhile. Well, a couple of days at least. Lately I have just been trying to figure out when I can go back to work. I've been gone since June 8th. Almost a month!!!! All for an appendix. Ugh. So, I go back on Sunday. Joy. Not really. I wish that we could afford for me to stay home with Chase. I've really enjoyed being with him everyday. I feel like I miss a lot when I'm not there. At least I won't be gone for 12 hours anymore, just 8.
