So Excited!!



I wasn't going to let myself get excited about New Moon. I thought Lily would be here by the time it came out in the Theater. I wanted to go to the Midnight Showing with my friends but thought that I would have a new little one. Since she isn't here yet. Guess what I'm going!!

Jeanie texted me this morning and invited me to go. She asked if I thought I would have the baby by then. I told her it wasn't looking that way so I'm so excited to say I get to go. It was almost like it was meant to be that she had an extra ticket. She is having a pre-show dinner and then were all taking off to the theater. I'm soooo excited. It's going to be so much fun.

Thanks so much Jeanie for thinking of me. I have awesome friends!! Love you all!!

Private to Public to Private back to Public

Why? I keep changing my mind. I know this is so stupid. And I apologize to you who visit me often. But I think for now I will keep my blog Public. I read my horoscope today and this is what it said.

The possibility of new beginnings seem to dominate the day today, Scorpio. You may experience forgiveness, or you may give someone else a second chance, but either way, you'll have a personal experience with closing the door on the past. All you have to do is to be willing to accept change, and let go of whatever is holding you back. Be careful not to hold on to any grudges, and make sure you don't reference your present situation to the worst of the past. Find the meaning in past problems and move on, because this is a day of hope and encouragement for you.

This is why I've decided to go public once again.

FrUsTrAtIoN



This is exactly how I feel today. I'm so ready for Lily to come. But she is being so stubborn. Camron and I went to the hospital this afternoon because I felt Lily wasn't moving very well. So we get to the hospital and the nurses aren't sure what to do with me because they don't really want to admit me just to do an NST. Well I tell them my baby hasn't moved today so you need to admit me.

So they tell me that is fine and get me into a room. Make me get into a gown hook me up to the monitors. And Lily is just fine. I'm so so glad that she is. But while I'm on the monitors I start contracting. So I think to myself this might be it. They keep me on the monitors for about an hour. And then they stop. WHAT!!!

I have to keep thinking that it's better if she stays in there longer. But with past experiences with my other pregnancies I can't help but be frustrated. I delivered all the boys at 38 weeks. And I'm 38 weeks tomorrow. I'm thinking this will go on most likely for another 2 weeks. I'm not sure how I feel about that. Hopefully something will happen soon. But for now we will wait. And try and be patient.

DoNe!!



I'm done finally with my house cleaning. I'm starting to feel on top of things. I only have 3 weeks left. I'm going to get my bags packed today for the hospital. Camron is still working on the nursery. Maybe now that I'm done with my stuff I can finally start helping him. I'm not sure that painting the crib a different color was such a good idea.

I think my whole problem with starting the nursery is moving Mason in with Reese. Mason has done so good in his toddler bed. But as much as I would like him to stay in his own room. Lily will be here soon. We were thinking that if we bought him Thomas the Train sheets he would have no problem moving over to his new bed. I can't believe how big he's getting.

This week Lily's room! Next week hopefully Lily!!

Reese's Halloween Performance




Mason kept going up on stage to be with Reese.

Ultra Sound Pictures!



Here are a couple of Ultasound pictures of Lily. She was hiding so they couldn't get one of her face. The good news is that her heart is looking really good. The bad news is they think she might have a Club foot. The doctor told me it could have been the way she was laying because I am so far along. (Clubfoot is a birth defect that causes a newborn baby's feet to point down and inward. While clubfoot does not cause pain, it can cause long-term problems, affecting the child's ability to walk. However, if clubfoot is properly treated, the clubfoot deformity can often be cured in early childhood.) The only way to tell for sure is when I deliver her. I just hope all is well.

Oh my Trochanteric Bursitis



Well it's been something different with every pregnancy right. Well this time it's my hip. It started a couple of months ago. As many of you know my health as not been super fantastic this pregnancy. And I have spent a lot of time in bed. What do you sleep on when you are pregnant? You ask. My hips. And the damage oh the damage.

I don't really think that the fact that I've been busting my butt to try and get my house cleaning done has helped in the least. Last night was agonizing to say the least. I could barley walk. I felt like a 90 year old women trying to get up and make it to the bathroom before my bladder exploded.

I just keep thinking that a couple of more weeks and maybe this pain will subside. Giving birth I know for me is such and amazing thing. I get my body back. I'm really looking forward to that this time.

I shouldn't complain I feel so blessed that we have been able to have our four beautiful babies. They are all so special to both Camron and I in their own little ways. So I guess I will stop complaining and try and look and the upside of this situation. Only a couple of more weeks to go. Then I will be begging to put her back in so I can sleep through the night again. Oh the vicious cycle we weave.

A little Reminder...

I wanted to post this again. It was one of my first posts when I starting Blogging. But since #4 is almost here. I thought I would remind myself.

Before I was a Mom
I never tripped over toys or forgot words to a lullaby.
I didn't worry whether or not my plants were poisonous.
I never thought about immunizations.
Before I was a Mom - I had never been puked on.
Pooped on.
Chewed on.
Peed on.
I had complete control of my mind and my thoughts.
I slept all night.
Before I was a Mom
I never held down a screaming child so doctors could do tests.
Or give shots.
I never looked into teary eyes and cried.
I never got gloriously happy over a simple grin.
I never sat up late hours at night watching a baby sleep. Before I was a Mom
I never held a sleeping baby just because I didn't want to put him down.
I never felt my heart break into a million pieces when I couldn't Stop the hurt.
I never knew that something so small could affect my life so much.
I never knew that I could love someone so much.
I never knew I would love being a Mom.
Before I was a Mom -
I didn't know the feeling of having my heart outside my body.
I didn't know how special it could feel to feed a hungry baby.
I didn't know that bond between a mother and her child.
I didn't know that something so small could make me feel so important and happy.
Before I was a Mom -
I had never gotten up in the middle of the night every 10 minutes to make sure all was okay.
I had never known the warmth, the joy, the love, the heartache, the wonderment or the
satisfaction of being a Mom.
I didn't know I was capable of feeling so much, before I was a Mom.

This week hasn't gone according to plan!!

WARNING LONG POST!!

Hello all. My last post I was talking about how excited I was to attack my house cleaning this week. SOOOO EXCITED!! hehe:) Anyway as many of you know Reese came home sick last Wednesday with a sore throat and stomach ache.

My OB appointment was last Thursday and my doctor told me to make sure to get Reese tested for the Flu. So off to the Doctor we went. The test was negative. But all the symptoms matched the flu. The doctor told me to keep him home till he could keep his temp down below 100 degrees without medication for 24 hours. So he didn't go back to school till Monday.

Sunday Camron and Daylen came down with it. My sweet husband who has no immune system at all. Catches everything the kids bring home. He was soooo sick. I felt sooo bad for him. He stayed home from work Monday and Tuesday. Daylen didn't get it as bad and stayed home only one day on Monday.

Luckily I have the most wonderful In-Laws in the whole world and they have taken Mason so he doesn't come down with it. I think I have had a light case of it but not to bad. But the point is that I haven't done anymore house cleaning. I'm getting really stressed about it. Because before I know it. Lily will be here. Hopefully things will start to get better and we can get everything done in time.

We bought Mason a mattress to go on the bunk bed in Reese's room. We are going to get him a dresser and move him in with Reese so we can get started on Lily's room. I'm so excited to get her room going. Here is a preview of what it will look like.



We are so excited. We are painting her walls pink and I was able to get the wall hangings and curtains that go with it. Camron is repainting the crib and changing table to a dark brown. He is already starting to spoil her. She isn't even here and he's already wrapped around her finger. It's so cute!! Hopefully Mason can come home tomorrow and I can get some cleaning and disinfecting done so I can start back on my house cleaning next week. I'm so grateful for all of the people in my life that care about us so much. Thank you Rob and Trudy for helping us with Mason. We miss him soooo much but we are so glad he doesn't have to get this yucky stuff we have all had. I pray that Camron can get over this without his Chrone's interfering. So far he hasn't had any problems with his chrone's from this. Daylen has been the least sick and I'm also thankful for that. I hate to see my kids so miserable. It breaks my heart.

Update: While I was writing this Trudy called me and told me that Mason has diarrhea really bad. She wants to keep him but is really stressed he might get dehydrated. I'm not sure if they will have him come home yet because we are all still sick. Hopefully he's not getting what we've all had. I'm hoping it's just from not being home that is causing it. They are going to the store to get some Imodium AD and Destine for his bum. I just hope he feels better soon. I'm not sure how I feel about him not being with me when he's sick. But with me also being sick it might be for the best. I miss him so much. I don't like being away from him especially this long. But I'm still very grateful for Rob and Trudy. They are the best and are so good with him.

Nesting



It's official nesting has started. I've spent 7 hours today in my kitchen house cleaning. I took all the decorations off my kitchen cabinets and cleaned them. Wiped every nick and cranny. Pulled the fridge out and cleaned underneath that. Pulled everything out of my cupboards and wiped everything down. I'm done but now I have to start on the rest of the house. It's going to be a long week. I just hope I can get everything done before I kill myself in the process.

Meet Me in the Stairwell

MEET ME IN THE STAIRWELL
PLEASE READ TO THE VERY END, IT IS BEAUTIFUL!!!































'MEET ME IN THE STAIRWELL'

You say you will never forget where you were when
you heard the news On September 11, 2001
.
Neither ill I.

I was on the 110th floor in a smoke filled room
with a man who called his wife to say 'Good-Bye.' I
held his fingers steady as he dialed. I gave him the
peace to say, 'Honey, I am not going to make it, but it
is OK..I am ready to go.'

I was with his wife when he called as she fed
breakfast to their children. I held her up as she
tried to understand his words and as she realized
he wasn't coming home that night.

I was in the stairwell of the 23rd floor when a
woman cried out to Me for help. 'I have been
knocking on the door of your heart for 50 years!' I said.
'Of course I will show you the way home - only
believe in Me now.'

I was at the base of the building with the Priest
ministering to the injured and devastated souls.
I took him home to tend to his Flock in Heaven. He
heard my voice and answered.

I was on all four of those planes, in every seat,
with every prayer. I was with the crew as they
were overtaken. I was in the very hearts of the
believers there, comforting and assuring them that their
faith has saved them.

I was in Texas , Virginia , California , Michigan , Afghanistan .
I was standing next to you when you heard the terrible news.
Did you sense Me?

I want you to know that I saw every face. I knew
every name - though not all knew Me. Some met Me
for the first time on the 86th floor.

Some sought Me with their last breath.
Some couldn't hear Me calling to them through the
smoke and flames; 'Come to Me... this way... take
my hand.' Some chose, for the final time, to ignore Me.
But, I was there.

I did not place you in the Tower that day. You
may not know why, but I do. However, if you were
there in that explosive moment in time, would you have
reached for Me?

Sept. 11, 2001, was not the end of the journey
for you. But someday your journey will end. And I
will be there for you as well. Seek Me now while I may
be found. Then, at any moment, you know you are
'ready to go.'

I will be in the stairwell of your final moments.

God
During the next 60 seconds, stop whatever you are
doing, and take this opportunity. (Literally it
is only 1 minute.) All you have to do is the
following:

Stop and think and appreciate God's power
in your life, for doing what you know is pleasing to
Him. If you are not ashamed to do this, follow the
instructions. Jesus said, 'If you are ashamed of Me, I will be
ashamed of you before My Father.'

If you are not ashamed, copy and send this message...only
if you believe 'Yes, I love my God. He is my
fountain of Life and My Savior. He Keeps me going day and
night. Without Him, I am no one. But with Him, I can do
everything. Christ is my strength.'

THIS NEEDS TO GO AROUND THE USA MANY TIMES SO

KEEP IT GOING

What's wrong with this picture?

If you look closely at the picture above, you will note that all the Marines pictured are bowing their heads. That's because they're praying.

This incident took place at a recent ceremony honoring the birthday of the corps, and it has the ACLU up in arms. "These are federal employees," says Lucius Traveler, a spokesman for the ACLU, "on federal property and on federal time. For them to pray is clearly an establishment of religion, and we must nip this in the bud immediately."

When asked about the ACLU's charges, Colonel Jack Fessender, speaking for the Commandant of the Corps said (cleaned up a bit), "Screw the ACLU."

GOD Bless Our Warriors, Send the ACLU to Iraq

May God Bless America , One Nation Under GOD!

What's wrong with the picture? ABSOLUTELY NOTHING

GOD BLESS YOU FOR

PASSING IT ON!

I am sorry but I am not breaking this one.....Let us pray

Prayer chain for our Military...please don't break it

THIS NEEDS TO GO AROUND THE USA MANY TIMES SO

KEEP IT GOING
