Eat more healthy, make more meals at home and eat out less.~ We have eaten a lot more at home lately and not as much out.

Don't stress the small stuff~ this has been hard with my mom being diginosied with ovarian cancer and not doing chemo. 
Spend more time disconnected from electronics~I have been spending a ton of time on my phone an iPad with exclusively breast feeding Lucas I have a lot of time that I am just sitting. 

Lucas James birth story

On Thursday night the 24th I started having contractions but since I had een having prodomal labor that mainly happened at night I didn't think much of them. When I woke up at 3am on the 25th I was still having them I went back to bed and kept waking up because of contractions they were about 3.5 minutes apart at 9 am. Then around 11:30 they were 2.5 minutes apart and I was having a hard time breathing and concentrating through the contractions. So my husband came home from work around noon. We then headed to the hospital. My contractions were indeed about 2.5 minutes apart and strong but I was only dilated to 3cm so after a few hours they sent me home and told me they would see me later that night. After that my husband and I went to the mall and walked but I was in to much pain so we headed home we got home around 8pm and I got in the tub to help with the pain. I was in the tub until around 9:30. When I got put and moved to my bed. My husbands friend stopped by to check on us and then around 10:30pm I got back in the tub. At 11:30ish I got out again and say on the bed at midnight I told my husband we needed to head back to the hospital so we did. 

12:30 we arrived at the hospital
12:42 I was checked an at 5cms
12:50ish my water broke
My contractions were getting stronger but not any closer then 2 minutes apart.
The nurse's were trying to get an iv in but it never happened
Around130am the midwife asked if I felt the need to push and I said no
At 140 I had a contraction and felt the need to push but my midwife wasn't ready so she said to not to push but I couldn't help it and was pushing any ways
With my first push he started to crown and I got to reach down and feel his head.
With my 2nd push his head was out and my 3rd and 4th delivered his shoulders and the rest of his body. 
Lucas was born at 1:56am on April 26th 
He was 7lbs 12oz, 21.25in
I had a completely all natural med free labor and delivery excatly how I wanted it to be.

2014 Goals

1. Read 4 books a month for a total of 48 books this year. 

2. Sew for myself not just the children

3. Eat more healthy, make more meals at home and eat out less. 

4. Have a weekly family game night

5. Don't stress the small stuff

6. Spend more time disconnected from electronics

Lets see how many of these goals I complete this year. I am looking forward to a great very positive year with my family. 

2013 Goal recap

1. Spend less time online
I did okay with this over the last year. I have tried really hard to spend more time with my daughter and husband and enjoy my pregnancy. 

2. Eat healthier
I did really good with this until I
 got pregnant and my HG worse. Then I just started eating what ever I could keep down.

3. Start exercising more
Just like the last goal I did pretty good and then I got pregnant and got HG again. With that happening I have not had the energy or strength to exercise like I wanted to. 

4. Try to be more positive:)
This one was pretty easy after my life was what I wanted it to be and I didn't feel controlled and afraid all the time. 

5. Read at least 30 books 100 Books
I honestly don't know how many books I read this year but I am pretty sure it's between 60-80 not quite to my 100 book goal but way over my 30 book goal I originally made.

6. Potty Train Bug 
Tho I wouldn't say emmalynn is fully potty trained she is day trained and stays dry at nap and bed time 80% of the time. I am perfectly happy with that. Considering at the beginning of December she was still wearing diapers all the time. 

7. Get rid of the clutter and things we don't need
With moving so many time I have gotten rid of quite a few things and we are starting over. It's a nice change tho I have more stuff to go through.

8. Blog More
I failed at this goal and I know that. I want to blog but I rarely know what to write about any more. 

9. Do more preschool type activity's with Bug
We did pretty good with this one. She has learned so much this year. 

10. Start sewing for me and not just for Bug
I haven't sewn since July because of moving and having no where to sew or any fabric to sew with.
