Never a Normal Shopping Trip

Tonight Matt and I decided to make an impromptu trip to Costco because we were in dire need of diapers, Pull-Ups and baby wipes all of which we buy there. Both kids had been in a decent mood today, so I thought "hey, why not?".

We got to into Costco and into the bread aisle when Ceili says about a lady right beside us "OH, that lady is grumpy!". The woman looked at me like "say something to make me feel better about the rude comment you kid just made" and I just stood there because I didn't know what to say or do! I asked Ceili later why she said that, she said "she had a grouchy face on". Toddlers say the funniest things!

When we got to the checkout, Abbey started screaming so I told Matt I was going to sit down in the eating area and feed her. I sat down with Ceili and Abbey and of course she wouldn't latch on, she just screamed while I tried to stick my boob in her mouth. That's probably the first time that has ever happened, so I didn't know what to do. You have to remember this breastfeeding thing is somewhat new to me because Ceili and I didn't do well with it and switched to formula when she was 7 weeks old. I had to put Abbey back into her carseat and take her home. I don't know if she wasn't hungry or there was just too much commotion for her, but she did nurse when we got home.

I'm glad to be home after all of that craziness!

Throughout my last pregnancy, I (as well as everyone else) was convinced that we were going to have a boy. We didn't find out the sex because Matt wanted to keep it a surprise this time since it was our last. Having a girl never even really crossed my mind! My pregnancy was totally different than the first. From the cravings to my belly shape, it was all opposite!

We had boy names chosen, and a few girl names as well just incase, but I felt they weren't going to be needed. The moment our little Abbey was born, the doctor said "it's a girl!" as he checked between her legs. Matt smiled then said "what?!" and did a double take! I was shocked myself, but happy nonetheless. She was beautiful and perfect and she melted my heart from the first moment I held her. Ceili said Abbey was a girl the entire time, maybe our 3 year old is psychic.

Come to think of it, this happened with our oldest daughter too. Even though we found out the sex and the ultrasound tech told us multiple times that we were having a girl, I was convinced she was a he. I kept having to tell myself that there was a little baby girl living in my belly, not a boy!

I guess the different pregnancies could have been due to our very different children. They are quite opposite so far. Ceili used to be awake and crying at least 5-6 times a night as a newborn where as Abbey is only awake once during the night to nurse and fall back asleep. Abbey is quite happy sitting in the swing in the morning and looking around and Ceili wouldn't have anything to do with it. You could say that Abbey is an "easy" baby, let's hope I didn't just jinx myself, lol.

Either way, I love our girls just the same and I do enjoy playing Barbies and princesses and I'm sure we will have many years of that ahead of us.


I'm Heidi, a proud mom of two beautiful girls, Ceili (3.5 years old) and Abbey (6 weeks old). I have been happily married to my hubby Matt for 7 years and we live in Alberta, Canada in a small but nice house.

I discovered that I enjoyed blogging when I was pregnant with Abbey and stuck on bed rest for most of it. I started my blog "Blogging from Bed" then and loved having a place for all of my thoughts, so here I am again!

This blog will be about my crazy life with two girls, friends, family, good deals and things that I find funny!
