Time is flying by. I can’t even remember what happened in the past week. I left off at July 4th. We went with D&D to see the fireworks. The girls had a blast and loved the fireworks. They didn’t even mind the sound even though we were very close to where they were shooting them off at. Tuesday D had her baby. 7lb10oz, 19 in. She will be E. Now there is D&D, C, L, and E. She is a beautiful baby. She looks like the daddy’s side of the family, same as C&L. I took Emma over there Tuesday and she was fine when I held the baby. My niece who is 9 months old screams when my sister in law holds her friend’s new baby.
Let’s see…Scott’s birthday was yesterday. Scott and I went out to eat and then we had the family over for desserts. Scott is not a big cake eater, so we had brownies, pie and ice cream. His dad is going to make him dinner tonight.
Today we had our second big ultrasound since last time she didn’t see everything she needed to. The baby did not want to participate again and she got only one small shot of what she thought looked like a girl. She did show us 3D and 4D and that was really cool. I have half an album of just ultrasound pictures since she has given us so many. This was our 5th ultrasound! The baby looks like she might have the same nose as Emma. I know it’s hard to tell now, but it does look the same! She is folded in half with her butt at my bladder. She opened and closed her mouth and was leaning her head on her shin. I am getting really excited! I just have no idea what to do in that nursery!
I started wearing maternity clothes in the past week or so. All of the sudden, I have ballooned. It is amazing how fast it has happened. Sometimes after I eat I feel like my skin is literally stretching. I’m surprised no stretch marks have shown up yet.
Also “in the news” today, we took away Emma’s pacifier. I said 18 months would be the absolute cut off but now she is almost 20 and still gets it. I mentioned it to Scott that we needed to start on that soon and today he put them up and said no more. When she finally got too tired at 3:30, she went looking for her paci in her bag and I told her it was all gone and she started crying. It about broke my heart. And now she woke up only 45 minutes into her nap. I can see some cranky days ahead of us. Today was really not a good day to do this as I am going to my friend’s house tonight for pizza and movies and Emma prefers when I’m around at bed time. Oh well, I guess he just sticks a paci in there if it gets too bad.
The thing tonight is for my friend MF who is getting married. Her bachelorette party is at the beach this weekend and I’m not going so MD (my other friend getting married) is having some people over at her house tonight for everyone in town since we all are not going to the beach. I was happy to be able to participate in something this weekend.
