Though most of this blog contains pictures, it's also a detailed account of my life living with three boys. And yes, they are all boys. Hope you enjoy... they're pretty cute (but often smell).

18 Days

Random Thoughts from This Morning:
It's been 18 days... I've been a mom for 18 days! That thought hasn't totally sunk in yet. It's still very surreal. I have this adorable little man in my life who I'm still figuring out. "You're diapers dry... you just ate... I'm holding you... I've stopped singing... why are you still crying?" Ok, that really only happens one time a day - typically around 10pm - but it still pulls on your heart strings... the fact that sometimes he just needs to cry and you just have to let him. Again, we're still figuring it out.

It's been 18 days. How the hell did that happen? My life is built on three hour increments... How have 18 days gone by already?! I keep reminding myself to live in the present moment. To not wish for Cole's next step - for him to roll, to hold his head up, to sleep through the night - but somehow it's all going to be here before I'm ready for it. Our good friend Nicole brought over her 7-month old, Hannah, yesterday... Watching her smile, feed herself, interact with everything around her... I realized that Cole will be there in no time. He'll be motoring through the house and being a little independent person before we know it. I WILL live in the moment.

It's been 18 days and I'm going to stop feeling guilty. I'm not able to breast feed (sorry if that's TMI for some of you) - Ole Bessy is dried up - and that's ok. My beautiful son is now 9 lbs and is remarkable. He's healthy and perfect so I'm going to stop feeling bad.

It's been 18 days and I still can't nap. Maybe I'm not as tired as I think I am but I still haven't been able to nap. I'm just not a good napper. Hopefully this will change over the next 18 days.

It's been 18 days and my marriage has never been better. Even though we're both sleep deprived and smelly... Even though my stomach looks like jello and I'm still wearing pads that resemble diapers (ok, way too TMI)... Even though our night-lives revolve around pizza and rented movies... I can honestly say our marriage, our friendship, our admiration for one another, and our love has never been stronger.

It's been 18 days and I'm head over heels in love. Somehow in between all those foul smelling diapers, screams of frustration, sore nipples, countless doctor visits, and endless bottle cleanings... I've fallen completely in love with Cole.

Cole's Second Week and First Christmas!

Where does the time go? Even though we've been on a pretty tight schedule (eat, poop, sleep) the days just seem to fly bye.

Cole has passed his birth weight (8.1) and is doing wonderfully. He's a great sleeper (J and I really love that) but is becoming much more curious when he's awake. He's looks around, reacts to voices and then makes this adorable old man face as he pushes out a poop. Never thought I would think that was cute but I can't get enough of it!

On a personal front, Jason will be starting a new job with Olson-Denali Marketing after the new year. He's very excited and I'm very jealous of the brand new Mac Book Pro he got! He'll be a couple of blocks away from my work so we'll see how car pooling goes. I'm not the most pleasant of drivers in the morning... might get a little tense!

Over the past week Cole has gotten to meet lots of good friends from both near and far. He's been awake for about half of those meetings! Here are some pictures:

Nicole with her daughter Nora and Cole... Future couple alert???

Jordan with Nora and Cole... Kinda scary!

Grandpa Dude and Cole... just chilling

Fraunty Jen... looks pretty natural to me

Leah and Jim stopped over on Christmas Eve morning... So excited for these two and their wedding in September!!!!

Had to throw this one in here :: Our Christmas Eve dinner table

Last but not least... Cole on Christmas Eve. He's the best present we've ever and will ever get!

Jason and I hope all of you reading this have a wonderful Holiday and that you get to spend it with family and friends!

Merry Christmas!!!!!!

Cole Bridger Rogowski

This post is well past due... Its bound to be spastic but the main point is Cole is here!

Cole Bridger Rogowski was born at 1:57pm on December 13th. Mom and Dad (so fun to say) went into the hospital at 3:30am and after a quick check were admitted. After some VERY painful back labor (the Natural birth plan went out the window when that hit) and a little help from pitocin, I started pushing at noon... Jason was WONDERFUL (actually that barley starts to describe him) through the whole thing but was the BEST labor coach ever. He was right there the entire time and had a good laugh as I kept saying "can't you just pull him out!" - After two hours of hard work, our little man was here! A screaming 8 lb, 21" long baby boy!

The next fews days at the hospital are still a blur but what came next is slightly more fresh. Cole's weight started dropping and his bilirubin started rising... after three trips to the doctor Cole was admitted to Children's Hospital Friday afternoon. I'm not going to go into all the details as it's not fun to relive it but the main thing is we are home, Cole is now eating like a mad-man, and his bilirubin levels are back to normal! We have a follow-up appointment on Tuesday to make sure he is still on the up-and-up so I'll make sure to report back after that.

To all the wonderful friends and family who have been trying to reach us to come meet Cole, this is why we haven't been responding... We wanted to make sure we got him home and back settled... BUT we do appreciate all your emails and texts wanting to come... you will all meet him soon... Promise! :)

So that is that - Both J and I are pretty worn down from the past week so in between the feedings ever three hours we sleep!

Here are some pictures of our little monkey - MANY more to come soon!

All About the Attitude

I've decided to change my attitude today.

The past few days I've been pretty much obsessing about having this kid. Over-analyzing every cramp, kick, etc... It's been pretty much consuming my mind. Then I realized that I was being ridiculous. This kid is going to come when he's ready and right now he's pretty content. So I woke-up today and made the decision that I was not going to let the idea of "he could come any minute" consume me. I'm going to focus on all the exciting stuff going on around me (work, J, parties, etc.) and when Los wants to join the party he will.

I'm sure some of you are reading this and thinking "well that's a nice thought Brit but I doubt you're going to be able to do it."

Well, you're somewhat right... obviously I'm writing a post about it so I haven't completely put it from my head. BUT I'm ignoring what my doctor said last Friday and going back to my due date. When someone asks "when are you due?" - I'm going to smile and tell them the date... not say "any day now" or "hopefully soon" -- Nope, I will give them a grin through my swollen cheeks and say "the 20th" (ok, that's a few days early but give me a little credit).

So I hope you all have a good day... and if you need some new pump-up/workout/shake your booty music download Girl Talk's Night Ripper - 'Los is probably getting dizzy from how much I'm shaking in my office to this CD!

Two Weeks and Counting!

How big is baby? Los is about 7 lbs. and is in the 80th percentile! According to one website he’s the size of a watermelon… on another, a duffle bag. Both seem extremely large when I try to picture it in my stomach so I’m just going to go with “he’s the right size to come out and not kill me”.

Maternity Clothes? I’ve given up on looking cute. Last week I was a real trendsetter: I wore Jason’s sweater to work one day and yoga pants another. Unless there is a client meeting on my calendar don’t expect too much from me!

Sleep: Some nights it’s great (only getting up once to pee) and others it’s awful. Last night happened to be an awful one so there is a lot of glaring and crabbiness exuding from my office.

Movement: Most of the blogs you read will talk about a decrease in movement by this stage since the baby is usually so squished… Well lucky for Los I’m pretty lengthy so he’s still able to move and groove. I actually think this is my favorite stage for movement because you can tell what’s moving across your belly... “Oh, that was his foot” or “I think he just punched my ***”!

Food cravings: I’m trying to reframe “craving” in my mind – this prego weight isn’t going to come off if I’m still eating ice cream and Baby Ruth’s every night!

What I miss: Every little thing that I miss can be summed up into one big thing: I miss my old body. I never thought it was tight enough or strong enough but after being this round… this “waddley”… I’m thinking I was pretty damn perfect!

What I am looking forward to: I’m looking forward to the final piece of this crazy prego-puzzle… ‘LOS! J and I are as ready as we will ever be so bring it on! I’m ready to get my ass kicked in labor, to be sleep deprived from having to feed him every few hours, to get peed on when I attempt to change his diaper… I’m ready to make silly faces for hours on end, to snuggle with his chubby cheeks (I’m just assuming here), to take millions of pictures of every little face he makes… I’m ready to be a mom.

Milestones: This kid is cooked!

Say What?: Hearing the doctor say I was already 3 cm dilated was very cool… but now very annoying. Every night you go to bed hoping to be woken-up by contractions… you wake-up in the morning wondering if you’ll have to leave work early because your water’s going to break… updating a status sheet before you leave work every night in case you don’t make it in the next day… Basically I’m spending WAY too much time thinking this kid is going to come and I blame my stalled cervix.

'Los Update

Just got back from the doctor and thought I would give you a quick update:

'Los is turning out to a little land monster: 80th percentile weighing just under 7 lbs. We had a wonderful ultrasound nurse who let us spy on the little guy - he got annoyed and stuck-out his tongue at us!

As far as when 'Los is going to be here... well, I'm already 3 centimeters dilated (sorry if that's TMI for some of you) so our doctor is confident that he'll be here before Christmas!

To say J and I are excited would be an understatement!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend - careful on the roads all of you in MN

My, How Time Makes the Belly Larger!

I thought before we have our ultrasound tomorrow, and find out how big this kid is, I would take a little trip down memory lane.

First picture was taken on 9.10.10

This one, today... Wow!

Like I said... it's crazy how large a belly can get in three months!

A very special congrats goes out to Kimmy and Eric who are expecting in June!!!!

Holiday Wish Lists

It amazes me what you can do online these days! I was thinking about holiday shopping and how you can pretty much do it all online now... and then I thought about wish lists. How when you were little you would think for weeks about all the things you wanted. With Los I hadn't put much thought into it until a friend sent me this fun site. You get to grab pictures of things you want and make fun collages... just like being back in middle school minus the stacks of magazines and the Elmer's glue!

Best yet, it links up with all your social media pages and will post it for you (media nerd alert)!

So here's my fun, digital collage of all things cozy and sparkley:

Side note: All of these things are WAY expensive and not on my actual list... well, maybe the fingernail polish, Twilight movie and Lululemon pants! :)

Week in Review

It started with a nice short week at work (Monday-Wednesday). The weather wasn’t the greatest all week but I had a pretty cute driver when it got really bad on Wednesday!

Thursday = Thanksgiving

I don’t think there is anything better than being pregnant on Thanksgiving. You get to wear pants with an elastic waistband and no one looks at you funny when you go back for thirds on dessert!

In all honestly, Thanksgiving was wonderful this year – It was spent at my aunt Lindsay’s house with my wonderful family… I wish J could have been there but he spent the holiday with his dad’s extended family in Wisconsin. He got another deer so I we won’t be starving this winter.

Friday was my 28th birthday: I got to spend the day with one of my bestest friends, Jen. She was back from NYC and we decided to do a little pampering… massage for her and much-needed haircut for me. Then it was lunch and some shopping before heading home. That night Jen, Nicole and Amy came over for some good ole girl talk accompanied by unhealthy food.

Saturday started off with another epic kitchen fail (cheese cake pops are NOT easy to make) and cleaning… then it was off to my final baby shower hosted by Jen and Nicole.

It was SO fun!!!! So many good friends from all over and SO much good food! I was completely spoiled (once again) and left with the biggest smile on my face. Thank you SO much ladies!!!!!

Saturday night I had two fun house guests: Ashley and Olivia. Got some great advice from Ash and learned how to give a cute lil’ girl a bath in the sink!

And that brings us to Sunday!

Sunday morning was my last yoga class (teaching) until Spring. It was a wonderful class of about 30 energized students including my newest yoga addict, Jason.

So that pretty much brings us up-to-date!

Upcoming Events: Last ultrasound on Friday, finishing up baby/nursery shopping, decorating the Christmas tree, Holiday parties for work, Slota’s MN wedding reception, and waiting for Los to arrive… I’ve been given strict instructions to have him before Christmas so people can meet him when they’re home!

Wonderful Weekend

I was pretty spoiled this weekend... and I'm totally ok with that!

Saturday I headed out to MOA with my parents to do a little x-mas shopping. Well, I didn't buy anything for the holidays but I was treated to an early-birthday shopping spree at Lululemon (my FAVORITE store) with Mama Pugh! I got a couple new tanks and a pair of wunder unders that I can't wait to wear. Kris even got herself a couple of tanks - she will look oh so cute at the gym!

After a long day of shopping I was a total bore and went to bed at 9:00. I tried my best of make it to SNL but that was not in the cards.

I woke-up on Sunday to a skating rink - driveway was PURE ice - but I somehow made it to Lifetime to teach yoga. With so few classes left I just couldn't cancel. I was surprised to have 10 people in class since the roads were such a mess... Good ole yoga addicts!

After class it was off to the Rogowski's for my baby shower! Pat and Jenna did such an amazing job. We played some great games (one where people had to cut a string that they THOUGHT would fit around my belly - most people were way off and cut it too long) and had some yummy food. Pat remembered my love of baked brie so there was plenty to go around.

Here are two pictures from the shower - I should take one of all the cute stuff we got... I'll add that to the to-do list for the week!

I hope everyone has a great week and Thanksgiving. Expect lots of baking posts later the in week... including two new, never been made before items!

Happy Birthday to my lil' cousin Maliq (now 18!), Stacy and Kim Slota (ah!)

Almost forgot - congrats to my manly hubby for getting an 8-point deer Saturday morning!!! Looks like we'll have food this winter... I was very worried [written in sarcasm font]...

It's Started

On Wednesday my amazing co-workers threw me a shower with lots of yummy food (chocolate chip cookies, puppy chow, chips/salsa, etc.) and gave 'Los some awesome gifts. My favorite part was the oh-so cute diaper cake that Ashley and Elie made. Here it is playing co-pilot on my ride home:

Last night (Thursday) J and I finished our prenatal/baby classes. Last night's class was my favorite thus far since it was all about POSTpartum... once Los is finally here. We watched The Happiest Baby on the Block (I have the book as well) which was amazing - this guy is a total baby whisperer. I was quite crabby this morning so Jason tried out a few techniques on me... He deducted that it's for infants only and not for large crabby pregos!

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend. J will be out "providing" while I get to attend another shower hosted by my adorable sister-in-law! I think I'm more excited to see her then to open gifts!!!!

Closing Comment:
"And I wonder why people stare at the gym"

35 Days to Go!

Just a quick post and picture for today.

Since Los is supposed to gain 1/2 lb a week I figure I should probably be taking more belly pictures.

I'll also be sending lots of good thoughts to all the ladies heading down to Mexico today to celebrate Kim and Adam's wedding... I really wish I could be there but we don't need little 'Los making his debut in Mexico (it would be fitting though). Hope they all have a fun time and take LOTS of pictures!

Oh - it's also my first baby shower today! Oh so excited!

Monday, November 15, 2010

Upcoming Events

I was trying really hard to wait to write anything but I'm just SO excited I can't help myself... Plus, this is my outlet for mindless musings!

Please excuse the excessive amount of exclamation marks but this is a damn great list:

My work shower!

Kim and Adam getting married (even though I can't be there I'm still really excited for them)!

Baby shower with the Rogowski family (made even better because Jenna will be home for it)!


My Birthday (aka National Holiday)!

Girls night at my house (get ready for the BEST menu and movie selection EVER - circa 1996)!

Baby shower hosted by the wonderful Jenny and Nicole (where I get to see SO many lovelies that I haven't seen for way too long)!

Final yoga class until after the baby comes (this is actually a little sad but it's going to be a really fun class)!

Final ultrasound before Los is here!

Just call me Spastic Susy... I don't care... I'm f'ing excited for all of it!

Life is Crazy

I started to write this blog a few weeks ago but then lost track of it. I opened it back-up today and didn’t like it. So I deleted everything I wrote, except for the title, and started over. I’ll warn you upfront that this is a little heavier than previous posts.

Life is Crazy = Life has an odd way of working out even if you don’t understand it. It has a weird way of taking what YOU think is going to happen, shaking it up and laying it all out. It messes with planned timelines; delaying and accelerating. It changes attitudes and priorities. The question of “where do you see yourself in 5 years” now makes me giggle because I’m not where I thought I would be and I can’t even start to think of where I’ll be in another five. Life is just crazy like that. You really never know, you can’t plan, but you can keep an open mind, a smile and look forward.

Life is Crazy - A few examples in my own life:

I got married at 25. I never thought I would get married that young but life is crazy like that. Life threw this smart, handsome, tall, goofy guy at me one night and I never looked back. And I was the type that ALWAYS looked back. He constantly makes me laugh and I manage to keep him on his toes… We will be celebrating our two-year wedding anniversary this December. Life is crazy.

I’m a yogi. Five years ago I was 22. I was in my senior year of college and was coasting through until graduation. I didn’t know anything about Sanskrit or asanas. I knew what specials were at which bars and where to find parking on campus when I woke-up late for a 10:00 class. I went to the gym and went through the motions. I wore baggy shorts from my high school basketball days. Now I crave my sweaty yoga mat and the natural high you get after a two-hour practice. I love wearing tight pants and tank-tops so I can see my alignment in the mirror in-front of me. I love breathing slowly and loudly. I tell other people to breathe loudly and slowly. I teach pregnant women how to hold a posture and breathe through-it so they are better prepared for labor. I’m jealous of people who can meditate because I can’t yet. Life is crazy.

I’m pregnant. About a month after my 28th birthday I will be bringing another person into this world. I will have created someone. Not something… someone. I will be starting someone else’s crazy life and hopefully not making it any crazier than it’s already going to be. I will, for the rest of my life, watch over this person. Watch him develop a personality all his own. Watch him grow. Watch him learn and laugh. Watch him fall in love and get his heart broken. Watch him succeed and fail. Watch him become whatever he wants to become. Watch him change his mind and become something else. Watch him navigate through this crazy life. I will be a mom.

Life is really crazy.

DIY Weekend

We've been working on the nursery on-and-off for the past few weekends and I'm happy to report we are almost done... Just need a few more items (nightstand, mattress, Los) and it will complete. Here are some pictures - my favorites are the curtains with the leaves on them!

Crib corner

Changing Table (complete with lots of stuffy friends)

Glider (which I assembled all on my own)

Also this weekend: I reupholstered our kitchen chairs! It was SUPER easy and had instant results (which I love).

45 Days to Go

How big is baby? At our last ultra sound he was measuring average! My last doc appointment (this past Friday) my stomach was measuring on track with my weeks. Guess all the fear of having this humongous baby might have been for nothing. Our doc isn’t so positive so I’ll still be getting one more ultrasound on December 3rd.

Maternity Clothes? I think I’m running a 5 outfit rotation from here on out. This belly will not be hidden any longer and non-maternity dresses are about 6 inches higher in the front than the back! Not very cute...

Sleep: It’s pretty much clockwork that at 3:45am I wake-up to pee… after that it usually takes a while to fall back asleep since Los thinks its fun to show-off his yoga moves. His little butt likes to move up into my ribs and then back down (downdog to plank?) several times before finally settling down.

Movement: As mentioned above, he’s taking a break from his soccer skills and is now deepening his yoga practice. I guess it’s my own doing but the near constant stretching is starting to get annoying!

Food cravings: No cravings but per the last “weigh in” I will be laying off my Sunday baking routine! Carrots and apples anyone????

What I miss: Not having to wonder if the bottom of my belly is hanging out :: caring if my belly is hanging out :: having people stare at you because you spilled on yourself and not because you look like you have a boulder under your shirt

What I am looking forward to: 'LOS! Every time I’m in one of our birthing classes or prenatal yoga sessions I realize more and more how much I just want this little guy here. I feel like I’ve seen enough births, heard the term “squat” more than necessary, taken too many trips to Babies R Us… let’s get this show on the road! [note: I know it’s still too soon… he still needs to cook for a bit longer]

Milestones: The nursery is almost done and I put together the glider all by myself!

Say What?: Strangers don’t really approach me (again, I think I must look angry all the time) but the comments of (after looking me up-and-down) “wow, you must be close” or “looks like your about done” are really not that awesome. 1) I’m already counting down the days so I really don’t need your reminder; and 2) That comment tells me that I look like I’m smuggling an exercise ball under my shirt and/or look miserable – either way it’s not nice.

The BEST comments I’ve gotten (all from women who have surely been pregnant before): “Oh my gosh, you look so small for being that far along!” To these women I say "thank you" and "I love you"

Guest Blogger Monday

Guest blog writer Jason Rogowski here.

Feeling pretty good on this Monday morning after a couple big wins by the Pack, the complete collapse of the Vikings (including watching Favre act like he died after getting a little scratch on his chinny-poo), and a very productive last few weekends getting the house ready for the little Tasmanian Devil. We had an awesome dinner Saturday night with the Pugh's celebrating their 35th wedding anniversary. In the spirit of Halloween we took them to Forepaugh's in St. Paul, which is haunted according to a fable of lust, suicide and lovers scorned. Nothing too weird happened but we did have a screaming 2 year old next to us so she must have been spooked by something. Or just a brat. Spooky.

The dinner was also a "thank you" to the Pugh's for taking the renegade grey tiger for an extended stay with them - never thought I'd say this but it's just not the same putting on my socks in the morning without fear of losing a toe. But, now the carpets are all cleaned of cat hair and the nursery is basically ready to roll. This has to be one of the only times Brittney and I are prepared for something more than one day (or 10 minutes) in advance. I guess looming parenthood has already changed us some.

Speaking of change I also attended my first full blown yoga class Sunday morning. I knew it was not going to be a picnic and I was right. What a great workout for the whole body - and I was very impressed with the instructor. She is definitely a natural in that environment and it was fun to listen to all the people thank her after class, even though I was balled up in the corner trying not to vomit.

Looking ahead the house is getting a bit of a makeover with a new furnace and some new windows. We haven't had heat for the last week because the old rust bucket hit the fritz once and for all. And the windows and doors will make the winter a little more bearable by eliminating the breeze through the living room. After that I will be off to the motherland to fill the freezer and once again provide for the family. This year's harvest will be of utmost importance, as I expect Bone Jr. to be eating venison by age 3 weeks. Venny sticks by age 2 months.

Hope everyone has a good hunt if that applies to you. Otherwise, enjoy the last bit of fall before Thanksgiving and the most wonderful holiday of them all. 'Tis soon the season to put in Christmas Vacation and play on an endless loop.

Clark W. Griswold, out.

Epic Kitchen Fail

I guess it had to happen at some point...

This weekend I decided I was going to make Sponge/Honeycomb candy - the recipe seemed simple enough and I had never made anything like it before.

I confidently strolled into the kitchen Sunday afternoon with my recipe and ingredients laid out.

I added the sugar and corn syrup in the pan, stirred and then turned on the heat.

As the recipe promised, the mixture started to bubble. I was to wait until it turned the color of Maple Syrup before removing it from heat and adding the baking soda.

I did.

I then poured the science experiment onto foil and waited for it to cool.

After that I broke it apart and dipped the ends in chocolate.

Pretty, right?


They tasted like burning... no other way to describe it. Jason tried to hide his initial reaction from me but once I tasted the pretty little shards I knew it was a disaster.

I was very bummed out until I saw the large bag of Snickers/Milky Ways/Twix sitting on the kitchen table. I ate about 12 and was happy again.

A Different Kind of Halloween

I've gotten a few emails from various sites advertising last minute Halloween costumes. Most of them range from scandalous to slutty... nothing much for the flat-stomach-impaired. This is totally fine with me and J (well, I think Jason's ok with it) as we will be taking it easy this year and not dressing up... Though I did think of a pretty awesome costume idea: Beer Belly Trucker!!!

Saturday will be a ton of house stuff and then taking my cutie-pie parents out to eat to celebrate their 35th anniversary (and to thank them for taking our psycho-cat Lewis). We've decided to go to Forepaugh's which is said to be haunted... I'll let you know if anything spooky happens!

For Sunday: The plan is to lay-low and watch a movie (Killer Movie) that was filmed around Forest Lake, including on J's parent's street. I don't think it ever made it to the theaters but we're going to rent it and check it out.

I hope all of you have an awesome Halloween no matter what's in store for you.

If you're in the Grove, stop on by... we'll have plenty of goodies for children and adults... Cute babies get extra goodies (*cough* Nora and Hannah *cough*)!

Leaving you with some past, not so low-key, Halloween pictures - Enjoy!

2006: (J and me) Dog the Bounty Hunter and Beth (his wife)

2007: (me and Britta) Desperate Housewife and Betty Crocker (I think)

2008: (Andy, J and me) Jason, Frank the Tank and a Hockey Mom

2009: (me and Jason) Kat Von D and John Jameson
