Piggy Behavior

Today after our work out my girlfriend and I were talking with our personal trainer. He and his wife have a 7 month old and I was asking him whether or not she slept in a bassinet while she was in their bedroom. He stated that she slept in the bed with them because she was breast fed. I stated that I was worried about that because I wouldn't want to roll over on Gracie. Do you know what this moron said to me?! He said "not to be funny or anything, but when you grow a baby in your body for 9 months then you are more aware of her and you won't roll over on her" WHATTTTTTT???? Are you freakin kidding me? What statistic did you get that from. I shot him an evil look and said "well that's just an ignorant statement, there are so many myths around adoption and that's just another one." My friend and I then continued talking and she was saying of course you wouldn't do that. Anywhoo, after I got home I told DH and he said I was making too much out of it and that I was just overly sensitive. Maybe, my personal trainer is usually a nice guy and probably just didn't realize what he was saying. However, he's made unfavorable little comments about our adoption before that I just let slide.
What's wrong with people? This will be my baby. I already love her so much, it's impossible that I could feel any more love because I gave birth to her. I feel so sad now I could just cry. Maybe I am being too emotional
I spoke with my personal trainer regarding his ugly comments. He apologized before I even could say my planned speech. He said it was an ignorant statement and that he definately didn't mean to hurt my feelings. I believed him. So all is well once again, I'm not losing any weight but hey he's my personal trainer not Jesus.

Beautiful Ethiopian Adoption video.

If I were financially able, I would adopt as many children as my home could hold. How heart wrenching to have to find new parents for your children because you're dying. Unimaginable

Gracie's Bedroom Digs

I found the perfect set for Gracie's room. It's just what I'd imagined. Elegant, sweet and fit for a Princess. I just LUV it. Hubby is having a fit over the cost but actually it's quite competitive with other cribs I priced and didn't like nearly as much. I think I'll paint the nursery walls a soft green and accent everything with pink. I love those cute little pink ballerina frogs. Hopefully I'll be able to find some. I tell you I'm soooo excited. I don't know how you can love and miss someone so much that you never even seen but my heart is just so full for this baby girl.

Hawaiian Paradise

Hawaii 977
Originally uploaded by Mrs. Blingle

Hawaii was beyond beautiful. It was truely paradise. We flew to Honolulu and then took a cruise to Kauai, Hilo, Kona, Maui and back to Honolulu. If you want to see a lot of Hawaii this is definately the way to do it. However, the service on Norwegian Cruise Line left a LOT to be desired. Nevertheless, the payoff was visiting several of the glorious Hawaiian islands. We did a lot of excursions but I think my favorite was the Road to Hana in Maui. The scenary on that trip was truely magical. Waterfalls, lush landscapes, tropical flowers, black sand beaches. incredible! We will definately return one day when Gracie's old enough to appreciate it.Hawaii 1147Hawaii 1154Hawaii 1287Hawaii 1242Hawaii 863Hawaii 866Hawaii 762Hawaii 777Hawaii 463Hawaii 132
