Every child is different. Every pregnancy is different. This one is definitely proving true. We've waited for over 4 years for another little one to join our family. On Friday morning (12th), I went into labor. We went to the hospital. They checked me. I was only dilated to a 2. They decided to watch me for a while. My contractions STOPPED! They sent me home. Yesterday morning, Sunday June 14th, I went into labor again. This time we didn't leave for a little while longer. We got to the hospital. They checked me. I was at a 3, and my contractions were 1 min. 40 sec. apart and lasting for 60 seconds. OK, I'm in labor. After being monitored for about 45 min., they subsided once again! I was so FRUSTRATED and EXHAUSTED! Because I am not at 39 weeks, they won't help it along. So, I've been in labor off and on for the past 3 days. Honestly, it's getting very old! This baby has a mind of its own. However, he/she was kind enough to not come on Aaron's birthday (13th). Aaron is very glad of that as well. Hope you all have a great week. Mine looks like its just beginning! I think that when this baby decides to come, it will be a wam-bam here you are. I just hope that Heber is close enough (30 min. away). The nurses gave us the number for the Labor/Delivery department so the next time we come, they will have a heads up. They, too, think the next time might be all too fast. It's very odd, but I know that there is another hand involved. I put my trust in Him.

Time Flies!

I have reached that point in my pregnancy where I am ready to be done! I have 2 weeks and 6 days until my due date, and I can't wait until this baby comes. I have been SO exhausted! My mother-in-law has helped me spring clean my house. We cleaned almost every room with the exception of the toy room and the laundry room. That's ok. They weren't on the top of my list, anyway.

I got all the preparations done for Tyler's and Aaron's birthday parties. Whew! Thanks to help from my dear friend Alayna and my sweetheart KC. Alayna spent over 1 1/2 hours cutting out 3 cardboard guitars. I decided to give that job to someone who had more muscle. Well, his idea didn't involve using more muscle just different tools! He stole my little hand power saw and made light work of that project. I guess the Tim the Tool Man approach does prove handy occasionally. I will have to post the pictures of their parties. Tyler had a puppy dog party. They decorated dog houses that Alayna and I created, gave their puppy a name (I found them at the Dollar Tree), made a collar and played lots of games using the dogs. His party was on Friday, June 5. Aaron's party was based on a Rock N Roll theme. The kids designed their own cardboard electric guitars, made a microphone, played games and were supposed to lip sync to rock n roll music. The problem turned out to be the location of the stage. KC and I decorated the front porch as the stage. It looked really good. KC even brought out his entire stereo system (speakers and everything). We did this because it provided more protection from the weather. When it came time to jam, the kids were too embarrased because there were cars driving on the road. Go figure! So much for that idea! We celebrated his birthday yesterday, June 6th, because I don't want to have to do a birthday party with a baby. He's ok with that. It's not every year you get to have your birthday a week early. I really am hoping this baby comes THIS week!

I have finally finished my list of things I wanted to get done before the baby came. I didn't think that would ever happen. You know me. My list was really long.

Hope you have a great week! Thanks for reading.
