Last evening at my friend MD’s house went really well. I didn’t stay as long as they were hoping I don’t think, but I don’t feel too tired today and that’s what counts. We ate pizza and started watching American Wedding. We watched the unrated version and maybe I’m getting old or just…I don’t know…but I could hardly stand it. If they could have cut Stiffler out of it, it might have been bearable but he was just plain vulgar. Anyway, I also took over my maternity bridesmaid dress I had bought off of ebay. I had a big to-do about that because I had gotten the girl to come down on her Buy It Now price and she only charged me 3.85 for shipping, so I was psyched about that but then it took over a month for it to come in the mail. Turns out it was in our apartment office’s back room sitting there. They never gave me a notice that I had gotten it. THEN, I open it and I was very disappointed. The real bridesmaid’s dresses are a strapless satin black with a very very small train–oh, it also has a white strip of satin at the top and then splits open at the back to reveal more white satin. This dress was basically a strapless spandex dress that barely came down to my ankles. I thought the black looked faded to me and in my head I thought I had to start all over again. But I tried it on yesterday and it didn’t look half bad. Then last night MD tried on her sister’s bridesmaid’s dress and I tried on that one and then I tied one of MD’s white satin ribbons right below my chest and it looked so cute together! The blacks didn’t look bad beside one another and the ribbon made it look similar, but not the same. Like, you could tell I was wearing a maternity dress but it looked nice. I was really excited because I had only spent a third on that dress as I would have on a regular maternity dress with alterations. And this one is strapless like theirs and I can definitely wear this dress on other occassions while I’m pregnant. Cool.
So, on the pacifier front, Emma hasn’t asked for it again. Scott said last night she rocked with him without it. He did have to put her down in her crib a few times before she would stay and not wake up but she spent the rest of the night in there and when I went and got her at 6:30, she only cried until I got her out. She briefly looked on the floor where her paci usually is, but she didn’t say anything about it and quit crying. We laid in my bed for a few minutes and she babbled a little but didn’t go back to sleep. It was actually very sweet listening to her babble and such. She was in a really good mood all morning until I left actually. Then I took her to Scott’s grandmother’s (I came into the office today) and she didn’t ask for it then either. I’m hoping nap time goes ok with MawMaw today. I will either feel really bad if she cries a lot for it or really mad/disappointed if she breaks down and gives her a paci (if she finds them in the bottom of her bag) or just happy if it goes smoothly. Emma is a smart little girl. I think she realizes when we told her they were all gone that they really were and that’s probably why she cried like she did yesterday. Man, that broke my heart, I couldn’t take that again.
