The universe is awry!

Until this morning I was a big believer in small moments of madness leading to big events. Unfortunately I was proven wrong by the universe, it's always a bummer when that happens. I'll start from the beginning....

I had a Dr. appointment yesterday.(The last one before the big induction next week!) They had scheduled me in the late afternoon which is nevergood for our single car situation. Rather than waking up earlier than the rooster to take Brad to work, I asked Mom for a ride. Mom is always to the rescue! So the time comes to leave for my appointment. I managed to bathe, brush, and dress and feed both Caydance and myself. I was on a roll!

Then Brad calls, with alot of excitement, to tell me he is off of work and can make it to the appointment. He really has missed going, he's the involved type. So I take Caydance out of moms car, we all give kisses, and we sit on the porch to wait for Brad.

We rush as fast as we legally can to the hospital and manage to make it only 5 minutes late. We run up the stairs (My run was quite waddly), burst through the door, and let the receptionist know we had an appt. That was when she informed us that our appt was at this time tomorrow. My pregnant brain had made me very upset. That was a whole lot of hoopla for nothing!!!

Then on the way home the car started acting funny. One little thing at a time was going crazy like the car had been posessed by an evil demon! After calling my dad (Parent number 2 to my rescue) we found out it was the alternator. Dad bought one for us, a VERY expensive gift, and Brad bravely told them to go on to their anniversary dinner and he would install it. What a hero!

Well somewhere around midnight Brad and his brother finally finished up. Did I mention it was a full moon? Well anyway, I lay upstairs waiting for the baby to come but not a single contraction. My theory was disproved. And now I sit here, before sun up, preparing myself for the real Dr appt. Wish me luck!

Anybody else baby hungry?

I found this poem in a magazine. I guess it's a few lines from a childrens song. I am so excited for my baby to come that I am crying over her carseat. It makes me feel a little crazy. But this poem gave me warm fuzzies so I thought I would share it.

Last night
While everyone was asleep
I looked out my window,
up through the trees.
The sky was so big
and covered in stars!
I knew a baby brother or sister
would soon be ours.
Our family of three
is growing beyond
my mommy daddy and me.
Just how will it be,
when we add another branch
to our family tree?

*sniff sniff*

Curly Sue's big tadoo!

My curly haired little girl got her first hair cut today. It was beginning to get a little out of control and I saw scary carrot top things happening if I didn't do something quick! So we called up Kaylee, our family favorite hair stylist, to handle the job.

We didn't want anything too drastic! So she started by trimming up the back so the ends would hopefully tangle up alot less. This is where I start day dreaming of days without screaming fights over pigtails. Kaylee took so little hair off that I couldn't even see it hitting the ground!

Then we went for bangs so that her hair would stay out of her eyes. Now I must share with you a very embarassing moment. Kaylee went to cut the bangs and Caydance refused to look forward. So when holding a small toy wouldn't work, Kaylee brilliantly said "Caydance will you look at my pretty necklace?" So after she admired it for a minute I asked Caydance "Do you think her necklace is pretty?" to which she replied........ from the mouths of babes......."Boobs!" You think maybe there has bee a little too much talk of breast feeding lately?

Well everything turned out well. Caydance is now a picture perfect little toddler with her attitude, chubby cheeks, curly hair, bangs, and full knowledge of the female anatomy. Kisses until next time.
