Isabella's Almost One!

As we near Isabella's birthday, I become more and more stressed about pretty much everything. I had no idea being a parent would be so much guesswork! I like the exact sciences- physics, chemistry, biology. The answers are clear-cut and there are no grey areas. Being a parent is so chaotic! I have to guess when she might need a nap (yes, there is such thing as sleep signs) and even if she exhibits the signs, she might balk and holler after being put in her bed. I like to be in control and sadly, naps do not fall under my realm of control! But with all the stress and worry, I would not change anything about my little Isabella! She is the most precious thing in my life!

On a completely different note...I saw "New Moon" twice at the movie theater and it was such a well done film. I was afraid that they won't stick to the book as closely as I would have liked. But I was very pleasantly surprised. The director Chris Weitz did a great job. Now I cannot wait for Eclipse to come out at the end of June 2010. David Slade, please don't disappoint the fans! Eclipse is such a complex book to adapt for the big screen.

Back again!

I feel remiss in regards to my poor neglected blog! I am going through one of my "reading" frenzies. It's a periodic thing- there are times when I devour books in hours and times when I am not interested in reading at all. I have to admit though the former phase happens a lot more. What can I say? I am a bookworm! I am reading my worn out copy of "Twilight" for the umpteenth time! It's my favorite book of the saga. "New Moon" comes in as second favorite but it is so hard for me read it without fully immersing myself in Bella's depression. It's a spectacular book for that very reason. I've re-read the reunion scene and beyond many times because just thinking about their separation chokes me up. Stephenie Meyer really knows how to write.
I am looking forward to the movie and I hope, hope fervently that they do not stray from the book. It is such am emotional literary piece.
I've been reading other books of course. It's been mainly Young Adult fiction but there 's been a sprinkling of inspirational romance here and there. What a combination, right? I've read "The Hollow" by Jessica Verday (Reminds me Twilight a little) but it almost ended with a cliffhanger and I have to wait till next year for the sequel! I loved, loved "My soul to take" by Rachel Vincent. It was a refreshing new take on mystical creatures and had a lot of terrifying tones in it. And romance of course! I've just finished reading "The Inheritance" by Tamera Alexander and like all the other books I've read by her, it did not disappoint.
I am dabbling in writing as well. Have been since I started avidly reading in my teenage years. My problem is that I want to write the exciting scenes and just sketch the in between events that are not so exciting but still carry the plot. So I end up frustrated and not finish what I start. And I know if I put my mind to it, I can do it.

I haven't really written much since I signed up here. I guess it has to do with the possibility that no one will read it. But an idea just came to me about what to write...Things I am obsessing about. They tend to change- I am a rather obsessive person. :)
A week or so ago I was on an eBay streak! I decided to get some bigger clothes for my girl and I didn't mind them being used. And once I discovered the sheer amount of stuff people have on there, I WAS hooked! I bid on like 10 things. Luckily, I only won five so I got a LOAD of clothes- a rough estimate is over 100 pieces- for $75 including shipping. And they include brand names like baby Gap, DKNY (super cute jeans- yay!), Old Navy, OshKosh, Izod (who knew they made baby clothes??!) and many others. And the best thing is that 99% of them are in excellent condition! In my opinion, that is a GREAT deal ( I am having this penchant for capital locks in this
And then I decided to list her old clothes for sale and I sold them! I didn't make a huge profit but I hope someone will get a good use out of them!
So since I got the selling bug, I have been listing books for sale on Amazon. Already sold 4 in like 3 days! Crazy! But I like it. And I have a ton of books that i really don't read. I have read them all and apart from a few -Twilight comes to mind- I will not read a second time. So they are just taking up precious space in our two bed/one bath house (a downgrade from our 3bed/2bath house in Texas, but this one here is in a great neighborhood and walking distance to my husband's work).
And then I discovered something called Baby Legs- baby leg warmers and went crazy for them! I bought five pairs and they are so cute! They can also be worn as arm warmers. It is still a bit warm for them yet but soon it will start getting chilly here in the evenings! I can't wait for fall! Here is a pic of Isabella wearing the leg warmers on her arms!

I've entered the world of blogging! Who know how many people will actually bother to read this but it is a great outlet for me!
This is my first posting and it will be short. The baby is squealing in her crib, already bored with her nesting cups!
