The Great Mystery, Solved

So it has been a long day already, and it is only 11:30.

Figure that one out.

Keith has been incredibly fussy and I have suspicions he is trying to become two a lot faster than I would like him to. He is certainly trying to assert his independence. When he doesn't want to leave a place, we generally have a huge kicking/screaming fest. I actually think it is funny, and have to try really hard to keep a straight face. It wouldn't do to have my son see me laughing at his bad behavior.

Well, it started off like a typical morning. Got up and got ready, rushed out the door because, oh yeah, I had a doctor appointment.

Foolish, foolish me forgot to get a sitter for the tot, and the little ones really love to make messes in doctors' offices. We went in, and had a very nice long talk with the doctor about birthing options, and myths, and all sorts of lovely things, the whole time trying to keep little Dr. Destructivo out of things. Then the big news came. My midwife did an ultrasound, and guess what! We know what we are having. It's a baby! And, the baby is perfectly healthy! The head is actually a little bigger than the 17 weeks, so it could be a bit further on than we had anticipated. Yay!

We got to see all the fun body parts, and when I say all, I really mean all. I am so excited for this cute little one to join our ranks.

After the doctor I had to rush off to go visiting teaching, and then get Keith to bed. He was being naughty, though, so he didn't get his binki, which means it makes his nap time all that much harder for me. But he made the choice, and I have to stick to my guns, right?

At any rate, I am exhausted, and not looking forward to the many random things littering my floor. I have a friend I haven't seen in ages coming over soon, but I think she is going to just have to deal with the mess, because I am too tired.

Orange Julius is like my whisky, and it is calling to me. Have a great day everyone!
























Okay, okay. I will tell you. We are having a little girl!

Congrats on your little girl!!! Do you have any names picked out? Girls are the most fun to dress :)

On a different not, I was without a computer for a few days, now that's it's "back" I have been catching up on on e-mails. I got yours about the blog design - I will respond soon - but it's a "go" and I'm excited to make a layout for you!!!

Oh gosh, I was gonna say - what? she isn't telling us? URGH! But now I don't have to say that. Anyway just thought you also should know that I watched Sense and Sensibility and it is one of my new favorite movies. Of course, I only could find the Hugh Grant/new version. But I loved it!

Congrats! Ha, if you think Keith is giving you fits... you'd better brace yourself for a little girl! Girls are SO MUCH fun... But the hormones kick in at birth, I think it's payback for the fits we gave our parents!

yeah are little girls can be friends...I'm excited that all is healty and good... And I totaly understand about taking a todler to a doctors apt with you.... Sammy thinks the stirups are the coolest thing ever...Last time we were in the doctors office the doctor knocked and asked if it was safe to come in she was making so much noise with them... poor girl if she only understood what those things were used for...

I'm feeling great most of the time...and my belly is growing every day. It's starting to sink in that I'm really pregnant now that I have a cute little bump. Call me sometime!
