Do you know what sucks?
Morning sickness. The constant feeling of nausea and tiredness throughout the day, while you still must carry on your normal duties.

Do you know what sucks even more than that? Morning sickness mixed with a stomach virus. Oh yeah. The constant feeling of nausea and tiredness throughout the day, PLUS the constant churning in your stomach and pain that comes from the fact that you can't eat and your body has puked out everything you may have eaten in the last week. Welcome to my day today!

So enough of that...Taryn has her nine month check-up tomorrow. Usually, I would be excited, b/c her doctor is so peppy, and says things like, "PERFECT!" when I tell her about Taryn and what she's doing. I just know she would use those words tomorrow when I told her all about Taryn's newest feats. However, she has a very limited schedule lately, and I was forced to see another doctor instead. I'm sure this dr. will be fine, but I just want to hear 'perfect' words. Like, how could you not say stuff like that about my littlest one...or my biggest one, for that matter?

Speaking of the littlest one a bit more, have I mentioned that she is the MESSIEST eater on the face of the earth? She must touch and squish EVERYTHING that goes into her mouth before she will even think about swallowing it. That includes stuff like yogurt and soup. It is very unnerving, and it takes about half an hour to clean up after she's done eating, even just a snack! I find myself giving her the cleanest foods I can find, which I'm sure isn't great for her health, since those usually include french fries and chicken nuggets. Hey, hey, don't worry! I still make sure she eats plenty of vegetables everyday, and gets other meats, too. I just don't like when she does eat other stuff! I've found that bringing the dog in after she eats saves me a lot of trouble, b/c he'll eat all of her leftovers off of the floor for me. He does a great job, too. I swear his spit makes the wood floors shine! I took a pic the other day just to show you what I'm up against. Notice, JD, on the left, is a slower eater, but very clean about it. MJ, on the right, is just learning to eat with a spoon, but doing a bangup job and keeping it right there on the spoon. Then there's Taryn in the middle. Yep, shoveling and squishing whatever she can into her mouth as fast as she can. Also notice that the two outer cheerin' have bibs on to minimize mess to their clothes. Not Taryn, she immediately rips off any bib I put on her, so I am forced to just take her clothes off whenever she eats! Ahhh, I can't wait to give her a hard time about this later in life when she's easy to embarrass!

Alright, that's enough for today. Hope you have a great day, and I'll see you soon!

    Aww! I just love cute, little pudgie nakey babies!

    I hope you're done throwing up. I'm feeling a teeny bit better than I was when I called you earlier. No fever anyway.

    Very cute. By the way, I know exactly where you're at with the messy thing - Eva was (and still is) the messiest child on the face of this planet. She can't eat anything without first mushing it up in her hands, and then smearing it over her face, clothes and the surrounding furniture.

    I can go to just about any restaurant and order just about anything and just about every youngish server will say, "Perfect!"

    I ran across your blog from Jenny's blog.

    Oh how cute LOL I am not a big fan of mealtime either with my 15 month old. And I'm just as guilty with the french fries and chicken nuggets :p
