It's amazing the things that will get you excited when you live a normal life. I guess it's good that the little things still make me happy. Otherwise, it might mean I'm living life a little too hard.
We finally got the ice maker hooked up in our freezer!!! I'm so happy. I'm not much of a water drinker to begin with, but being pregnant, I'm even more picky. I don't like straight-from-the-tap water, or even refrigerated bottled water sometimes. I like my water COLD. So cold you have to drink it with a straw.
Yes, we have the ice cube trays, but half of the ice cube doesn't come out of them for some reason. Plus, I always forget to refill them when I empty them. So, occasionally, when a glass of water sounds good, I will go over to Grandma & Papa's and steal a glass of ice, just to have some good icy water.
But I don't have to do that anymore. Yay! A friend of our family, who is A-Plumber, came over on Thursday and hooked it up for us.
Okay, enough about my ice maker. I'm just excited!
Have a good day everyone!

Tonight, after teeth brushing, I grabbed it and pulled. Sierra, of course, said "Ow!" and pulled away. But I grabbed her head, grabbed the tooth, and yanked! And out it popped. She bled, of course. But she was fine with it. Rinsed her mouth and grabbed a tissue.
We had to run over to GG's house to show her. I think the running while grinning helped dry up the rest of the bleeding, because by the time we got down the driveway, it was fine.
So, the Tooth Fairy comes tonight. But Sierra is very sad to say goodbye to her first lost tooth. So, I'm to have a conversation with said Fairy and see if we can work out some kind of deal. You know, a something-for-nothing kind of deal. As in, you leave a quarter (although Sierra has only requested a penny), and we keep the tooth. We'll see how that goes...
Anyway, here are some pictures:
Here is the bloody hole, shortly after we pulled the tooth.
And here is the hole, after all the blood went away. You can see the big tooth right behind it. It should be up in it's place very soon.
I just can't believe that my baby (well, my VERY FIRST baby, anyway) has lost her first tooth. Damn! Now I feel old!

The first time, I greased one pan of corn muffins, and forgot to grease the other one. Even though I filled them one right after the other.
The second time, I was making whole wheat bread from frozen dough, and forgot. I ended up throwing the whole thing away.
So now, I have this up. And I didn't forget to grease my bread pan today. So maybe it's working!
As for the rest of my day, I've got a few things on my list.
I've got one thank-you note left to write from my baby shower in Bremerton. I'm pretty proud of myself, because I usually never get those things done.
I've got some junk left in my room to go through before Jason gets home. I'm trying to declutter in there so we can move furniture today. We are trying to rearrange so we will have more space for another dresser, and the bassinet. So, I've got to get rid of that pile. I've also got to go over to Grandma and Papa's house and empty out the dresser we are getting from them.
I've got some chicken in the fridge that I need to split up. Cook some and freeze some. My sister Jenni left me some zucchini, so I was thinking about making zucchini bread with that. Although I saw kind of a yummy looking recipe in a magazine for veggie mac n cheese that I might try. I've also got a loaf of frozen bread dough on the counter thawing/rising that will need to be baked later. And I have a recipe for some things called "No Bake Bumpy Peanut Butter Nuggets" that I want to try to make. If they turn out good, I will post the recipe.
As for the rest of the week, it will be spent getting baby stuff ready. Bringing the bassinet in and giving it a good wash down. Laundering baby clothes and putting them away. Our cloth diapers should be here sometime this week, or the beggining of next week, so those will need to be prepared.
I wasted a lot of time today on the computer (not that talking to you was a WASTE, Dani). But I was on here a lot longer than I needed to be. So, tomorrow I resolve to do better!
Anyway. There is my update. Hope you enjoyed it!

There you go! So, what do you all think?

1 1/2 C white vinegar
1/2 C water
8 drops lemon essential oil (you can use more, or maybe a different scent that you like better)
squirt of liquid dish soap
I mix this up right in a 32 oz spray bottle I got from the Dollar Store. Just put everything in and kind of swish it around. I also wrote the "recipe" right on the side of the bottle with a Sharpie so I know right away what to put in to make more.
So, there it is. My favorite cleaner. Cheap to make (well, except for the initial price of the E.O., but that stuff lasts a long time), and better for your family. No harsh chemicals, or chemical fumes. Enjoy.
