As I talk to more and more people, they tell me how they're checking my blog regularly to see if Im "still here" ...and since it's been a couple days, I just wanted to tell everyone...here I am!! We had the pleasure of going to Madelaines 2nd birthday party yesterday!! It was so much fun and the kids all did great!! The pool was set up and with the extensive collection of "Cars" memoribila the boys had, Jacob was like a kid in a candy store!! Ricci told me the pool was available if I wanted to do a water birth, and that we could just clear out the kids and we'd be good to go!! Especially since our friend was there who actually delivered his wifes baby at home!! (on accident!) so essentially we were all prepared in case Norah wanted to show....but no luck! We came home and took naps...Jacob in his crib and Steven and I out in the backyard...I made the huge mistake of putting on tanning lotion...thinking it would just help me bronze up a bit...but it turned out it was the worst lotion I could have possibly put on!! Major tingle factor...I felt sunburned even before I stepped outside :( the worst part was, when I got Jacob out of his crib, the lotion from my body must have spread to him because he had red blotches where I had touched him...he looked like he should have been on "Outbreak" ...the movie!! He had no idea and it didnt seem to bother him at all...but I still felt guilty! So we're headed to church this morning and going to stay for a baked potato feed!! (I have been craving it since I read it in the bulletin last week!) Steves going to mow my dad's yard for him because his elbow has been acting up...I will wash my car while Jacob naps and we will install Norah's car seat...maybe that's all she's been waiting for....?? Either way, we'll still have plenty to do to take my mind off of still being pregnant!! Oh well...the end is near...I cant go past next Tuesday (the 22nd) so I'll try and remain positive she'll come out on her own...
::Ok, Norah, thats your cue to get out!!!::
