First off - I went to the doctor yesterday and sadly - nothing is happening. I was the same as I was 10 days ago. I was really hoping she would say "Oh - she is coming any minute - let's get you checked in" or something like that. But it looks like I'll probably be going to my due date.
On the bright side - there is a full moon on January 10th and I'm hoping that helps me go into labor because that was my pap-pa's birthday and there he would have been so tickled to share a birthday with his great granddaughter (and I would be tickled also).
And the longer I go - the more time I have to do things I wanted to do but didn't know if I would get to..........................
Like today I put together little gifts for all the nurses who will help us at the hospital. I heard of a few other people doing this and I thought it would be fun. It's nothing big - just some little stuff but they will be helping me through the biggest day of my life - I wanted a way to say "thanks!"
I have to share something that cracks me up - crazy Kate sent me a birthday gift - this really neat photo album to carry in my purse. But the best part is she sent me a pre-done thank you note. She had addressed and stamped it and wrote it - I just had to fill in blanks. We had discussed that it's very important to me to write thank you notes and she said she thought new and expectant moms should be exempt. It goes against all my southern girl roots to allow myself to use this - but I'm doing it because it's fun. (I had to blur out her address so this picture is a little crazy).
I also got the cutest little monkey burp cloth, bow, and head band from Sarah in Iowa. She has a neat web-site where she makes these!!! I love them!!!!!
Scott and I had a date night last night and went to Chili's and to see "Marley and Me". Yes - ya'll warned me............but I went anyway. And I SOBBED. I was going to post a picture of me after the movie and how awful I looked but it was just too awful. The movie just hit home at where we are right now...........bringing a baby home and adjusting our "other" baby and the thought of losing Dawson just put me over the edge. I was crying so hard I had to put my finger in my mouth not to make noise - because I could have just WAILED.
One more thing - my dad has started a new blog where he is going to do a 365 day devotional walk through the Bible. If you are looking for a place to start the year off right and commit to spend time in God's word this year - check it out HERE! There is probably no better resolution you could make!
