Lots of Firsts

Ok, this might be a really long post. I have lots to update..finally! Brody has had a lot of "firsts" the last few days! So I'll get right to it!

First of all, the SNOW! Hello, is this Texas? Well, yes, its perfect proof of the crazy weather in Texas. Because it POURED snow Wednesday..and will be in the 70s next week. Typical. It was so much fun though! We felt like we were on vacation!

Brody also had his first haircut on Wednesday. His hair wasn't outrageously long, but definitely needed a trim. He was such a big boy! He didn't even notice what Mrs. Amy was doing because he was soo interested in the bright pink brush!

And here are just some photos with a couple other "firsts."

Make It Go Away!

I haven't been outside since Friday. I haven't done laundry in over a week. My house is a disaster. And all I want to do is curl into a ball on the couch. My sweet son feels neglected and my husband has been left to fend for himself when it comes to dinner and clean clothes.

Someone PLEASE tell me how to make this "all day sickness" go away. Whoever named it morning sickness had no idea what they were talking about. It's horrible. If I don't eat, I need to puke. And sometimes if I do eat, I need to puke. The dr took me off prenatal vitamins and put me on a mixture of a couple of vitamins to hopefully help the nausea. Well, that didn't work. I drink tons of water and that actually seems to help some, and I am constantly snacking.

With Brody, I was on a medicine that took it all away. However, we changed insurances and it would cost me like $300 a month to have the medicine now. So that's not an option.

I know there are some gurus out there on home remedies for this thing. So start leaving your comments with all your ideas. Is there some magic herb I can take? I've read the entire internet (the entire thing!) and I only find the basics- eat small meals all day, drink plenty of water, ginger ale, take vitamins at night, etc.

Please help me!
