Time seems to be going by in a flurry. I can’t even remember what we’ve done. Oh yeah, Thursday we got Emma’s ears pierced. Friday/Saturday we went out of town for my friend’s wedding. Since then, we’ve been busy around the house.
Emma’s ear piercing was a complete on the fly thing. SIL has been mentioning it for a year now and Scott and I were at the mall on Thursday by ourselves. Emma was in a good mood and for some reason, I was feeling courageous for the both of us. So, we did it. She cried after about 5 seconds and then really cried. She leaned her head over on Scott who was standing in front of us and the girl got the other ear. She cried even harder but then we gave her a lollipop and then it was ok. She has asked for them off several times since then and I almost caved in every time. There was no real reason for her pain or aggravation! But now, I don’t want her to have to do this twice. Her one ear is getting a little red and she cries when we try to clean it. Hopefully it will all heal ok. She does look awfully cute with the CZs sparkling!
The wedding was surprisingly excellent…I even enjoyed myself. I was a little worried for awhile. The bridesmaid’s lunch was at her aunt’s house and they had all kinds of yummy food. Some kind of chicken with coleslaw thing. I should have gotten the recipe. Then we had the rehearsal that afternoon. Somewhat boring as we just went up and down the aisle twice. The rehearsal dinner was great! We ate at the only restaurant on the mountain and it was SO good. Each person chose between 3 dinners. Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. Lots of toasts given and the FOB wrote and sang my friend a song. Saturday we got up really early to eat and go get our hair done. At first, I actually told the lady I didn’t like my hair. With such short hair, it was kind of limiting to what they could do. So we were going to do a few spiral curls on top but she ended up doing all of long hair curly. I told her it was way too much. I looked like a 12 year old. So, she straightened the hair around my face and it ended up really cute. We ate lunch back up on the mountain and then got ready at a lady’s house near the chapel. All the problems started then when one of the bridesmaid’s dress wouldn’t go on. We ended up having to sew and pin the dress together 5 minutes after the wedding was supposed to start. At the same time, my friend’s wedding dress was not fitting the same. Maybe she had lost weight or something but the dress was sagging some. She was halfway walking on her dress the rest of the day. But she didn’t trip on it or anything. So the ceremony was only 20 minutes, not much to talk about. Scott and I left the reception a little early, like 7:30. It was a nice reception but we were just sitting there mainly as everyone else danced. We stayed until all the traditional stuff had been done, but then left to get home to Emma. But they had to keep her awake because we were delayed when we blew a tire on the interstate on the way home.
Lexi has been moving an awful lot the past two days. Yesterday I could barely do anything without being kicked or stretched out. I’m also having a few Braxton Hicks contractions every day. I don’t remember them this early or strong with Emma.
Tonight we went to a coworker’s of Scott’s house. He helped them put up crown moulding. Well, actually, they bought the wrong thing and they ended up putting up chair moulding. They cooked us dinner. Emma played with their 10 year old. She LOVED her trampoline. Which is odd because I just said yesterday to Scott I never wanted one of those in my back yard. I may end up eating those words.
