Restless Legs

They are driving me crazy!! This is the second night in a row that I'm up until 1:30am because I feel like I need to run. So annoying. In other news, life is good. I got to cuddle one week old Isaac for a couple of hours today and it felt like I was holding one of my own babies due to the fact that he's a boy:) I can't wait to meet the little one that is growing inside of me. I can't believe a little person who could be just like Kai and/or Koen is in there.

I love the snow but can't really do the cold. Especially since I can't really zip up any of my coats.

Oh ya, and here's Kai's `great idea' of a game to play:
Kai: `Mommy, you close your eyes and I'll hold up some fingers. You have to guess how many I hold up. If you get it wrong, I get to throw all the pillows at you.'
I got it wrong. Three times. I could have peeked but he had a lot fun throwing them at me.

Finally, Kai and I have been playing a lot of UNO lately. I have to say it's a billion times better than Chutes and Ladders or Candyland.

And, taken from the book `Weird' by Craig Groeschel, `If the Devil can't make us really bad, then he'll try to make us very busy.' I've been a lot less busy these two weeks of 2012 and I have to say that it feels really, really good.

Bon nuit and safe driving tomorrow.
Love, Louise


  1. I'm still waiting to see the haircut...but in other news, I've had restless legs and it sounds a bit weird but taking iron supplements helped (I think my sister told me it could be due to low iron). Check it out...see if I'm crazy :) And the pillow guessing game sounds like you have to be a pretty good sport. I'm sure he laughed a lot though. I think yours will be the next newborn I get to cuddle. Yay!

    Hate to break it to you but Uno gets old as well :) Enjoy and have the next game ready!

  4. Calcium and magnesium can calm restless legs during pregnancy...

  5. Take some more iron!!! Restless legs, insomnia, desire to crunch ice like crazy (what I had;)) are all linked to iron deficiency in pregnancy. It worked WONDERS for me... I love IronSmart (at health food store)... it's liquid iron and absorbed really well and it won't constipate you.
