Twilight Fever

I am a goof. I seem to be being taught a bunch of lesson on understanding lately. It seems like when I criticize or don't understand something that people do, I end up doing it.
I have neglected house and home since Thursday when I discovered that Twilight and the series is pretty addictive. I just finished the second book. And would be reading the third if I had it. I really have enjoyed it. I figured I needed something better to do than watch so much TV while nursing Gus. He seems to think he needs to eat every two hours, which is so different than Joe and Sophie who ate every 4 hours. So I get into a chapter and can't put it down and before I know it, it is time to feed Gus again. OH WELL.

Which do you want to do?

My big question to Joey with the kids is "Which do you want to do?" This typically ends up with me doing the yucky job. Not because Joey is mean because he isn't, he is just to lucky. A couple years ago is when it started. About the time Sophie was born and I realized that I can only take care of one child's situation at a time. The first time should have taught me a lesson but no. Joey chose to bath clean up Sophie after a meal and I got Joe duty. Duty only because he ended up with a huge dootie all over the high chair.
Anyways, last night Gus was fussy, again, so I poked at Joey and said do you want to get up now with Gus and sleep in and I won't bother you or do you want to get up with Joe in the morning. He chose Gus. I then dutifully got up with Joe earlier than he has gotten up in weeks and got ready for the day. Well, after all three kids are awake and Joey is keeping me to me promise, I get the kids ready, Joe has a blood draw and then the lesson to be learned. Joe throws up on the floor. I therefore must clean up the mess because I got to sleep for 3 very wonderful straight hours. I think from now on I will tell Joey which option to pick, but I would probably end up with a worse outcome, due to be selfish. I think Joey has the best of luck to get out of so many of the things you would hate doing if you weren't the parent. As the parent you don't care how much poop or vomit you clean up. You feel worse for the child and that they don't feel good. I am grateful to be a mommy.

Pasta Sauce

Since becoming an Italian (big laugh)I have decided I need to learn how to cook homemade marina sauce. I never go from a recipe book due to the fact that I am overwhelmed when I look at a huge list of ingredients. So I have made it a point to watch cooking shows and try to remember the basics cooking. Joey is so sweet, he never says anything bad about my cooking, but I know that sometimes it is yucky. So I am attempting pasta right now and I am just waiting for the sauce to thicken up, and my noodles to cook. If someone has a great recipe that doesn't call for a huge list let me know. Anyways, thanks for reading and have a fabulous Sunday.
I should mention that Sophie is a very picky eater but she loves the spaghetti. The pictures above are of her mischievous the other night. The chocolate is from eating cookies that my friend brought over after Gus was born. The other is from Sophie deciding she wanted to glue the dogs to her. She poured a whole container of glue on the kitchen floor, herself, and Mardy the dog. She should have been punished but it was so cute we laughed and took a picture.

Life is Great.

These pictures are just cute they have nothing to do with my post.

I have loved this beautiful weather. For the last two days the kids and I have gone outside and played on the playground that Make-a-Wish donated to us. We had wanted to get a playground and probably would have had to wait until next year to get one. But last Thanksgiving we were blessed to get a playground. Joe giggles and giggles and Sophie begs for the wee. I plan to plant grass under it this summer. Then the kids can play and I can garden.
While I am thinking about it. I wanted to say this. I try to find good in all people. Somewhere in every person is good, we are all children of a very loving Heavenly Father and so therefore, there is good in all. We are here on this Earth after all. Last night President Obama (whom I have heard a lot of negative and not as much positive) was on Jay Leno, I enjoyed listening to him. I think he has a lot to offer. I found his personality on the show to be delightful. I am going to try to find it on youtube so I can hear it when I am not so tired. Then on the news tonight it was saying how Michelle Obama is going to plant a garden. Eleanor Roosevelt was the last to have a garden at the White house. I love to garden although I have a hard time getting around to it, but I really admire people who get out there and get dirty outside. I guess that is from having parents who always worked so hard outside. I also really admire this in my mother-in-law. She has a beautiful yard and in the summer you will almost always find her outside in the evenings working in the yard.

We tried to get rid of our goats for a year. No luck. Then we tried to breed them. No luck. So what happens we have a baby and the goats decide that now is the time. We came home from my mom's house to find a goat kid.
How lucky.

So I promised pictures in my last blog about our celebration disaster day. Here they are:

All I can say is YUCK!!!

Yesterday Joey decided he was taking us out for a celebration of good weather. We were going to have a fun day with new places to see. We quit after only two places due to the fact that at lunch we tried a new place to us and a very old place to others. We tried Tangie's on Main Street in American Fork. Yucky, what else should I say. Our food was cold, greasy as anything, and I saw my very first cockroach. I swear I didn't even know they could survive in Utah. Apparently, they can survive if it is at Tangie's. I usually do not put down places and recommend that people don't go there but I feel obligated to tell on this place. Really a cockroach.
Then we went to Liberty Land. It is fun, for kids. I was surprised they let Sophie on any ride for free with an adult. She rode the planes and roller coaster, they were fun for her. She then went inside to the maze thing like McDonald's play place, do these things ever get cleaned? I am discovering that I am a germaphobe. I turn off good feelings towards a place if I feel like it is going to send Joe to the hospital. I know I am unfair, Liberty Land was good for what it is. So we came home and had fun setting up stuff in the yard.
Once again I will say, there is no place like home.
I will post pictures next time.

Here we go...

So I need advice once again from you more experienced mothers. Until this point I have never had a mixed up baby. You know when night is awake time and day is sleepy time. I like it during the day because I can play with Joe and Sophie but I dislike it during the night when I try and try to get any sleep. Maybe I should look at it as a blessing that not much as changed, and the adjustment is easier. But right now I am only feeling tired. Please Help.

There really is no place like home. I always got homesick for my mother growing up. One night away was like an eternity for me. I would cry for her at sleep overs. I thought I would never be able to be married because I would get so home sick. I must admit I talk to my mom frequently on the telephone and go to her house probably once a week. But when all is said and done, there is no place I would rather hang out than at home with Joey and the kids. We came home today and I have been so pleased to be here. Home I think is the only place we have our independence. My parents have been great letting us stay at there house while recovering, they were so wonderful and supportive. My mom now believes me that I would be okay going right home from the hospital. It is amazing so far how much easier of an adjustment 3 is over 2.
Gus is such an awesome baby. I wish that I knew how to post pictures but I have no idea how.

Baby Gus

Just have a minute now to post because Sophie is downstairs with me but I thought I would share a picture of Gus or two to tide you over while waiting for Joey and Michelle to put theirs up. I have a bunch on my blog also if you want to see more. There will be some duplicates and some the same.

Gus about 8 hours old!

Mommy helping Joe hold Gus for the first time.

Daddy introducing Sophie to her baby brother Gus.

Gus 3 days old!

Sophie welcoming Joe home to Grandpa's and Grandma's house.

Sophie and Gus

Daddy, Joe and Gus

PS---So far Mommy and Gus are doing very well! Sophie and Joe are also doing better having their whole family back together. And to answer a few questions...March 3rd about 7:15 am, 19 1/2 inches long and 7 lbs 15 oz, and the name Agostino Anthony Di Regolo ...Rycer got changed last minute because Aunt Nannie is getting anoth nepher named Rycer in July ( And by the way I am not sure about any of the name's spellings but I know that Agostino starts Ago so Gus isn't even really in his name but we've been calling him it so it will remane his nickname!)

Baby Gus Has Arrived!

I hope Chel and Joey don't mind but I know a lot of people are anxious to hear that baby Gus is here! He came by C-Section at 7:15 this morning. I have only talked briefly with Mom, but she said that Chel and the baby were doing good. She hasn't seen him except through glass yet and I know Chel and Joey will want to be the first to share more but I wanted everyone to know that they are okay!
