The shower on Sunday went very well. Not nearly as much participation from the church members compared to Emma’s but that is expected with a second baby. We didn’t need as much this time around and I would have felt horrible if we had gotten as much this time as last time. I still have a few stacks of items to take back to the store of multiples we have.
Scott decided to make Emma’s toddler bed and it’s coming along. This is the biggest project he’s taken on to date by far. It looks like it’s going to be pretty nice.
Tomorrow morning Mom is having a yard sale and we’re having some things in it. I think I might have Emma stay with MIL because Scott has to go work the Clemson football game tomorrow and he’s leaving at 4am tomorrow! We need to get everything set up this evening.
Two nights ago I was having contractions 5 minutes apart for about 30 minutes. After I had laid down and drank some water, they went to 8 and 9 minutes apart and then stopped. The other wedding is next weekend and unless the dr. says I’m progressing too much on Wednesday, it looks like I’ll still be going.
Emma’s vocabulary seems to have exploded even since I just talked about all the words she can say just the other day. She’s really starting to use 2 and 3 words together. Wednesday out of the blue she told me and MIL on separate occassions the her back hurts. A black and blue mark showed up yesterday although I’m not positive where it came from. She has said no more milk, Emma do it. Then just little things like Emma trash, Emma potty, MawMaw’s house, out [of] mailbox. And she copies a lot of the phrases I say like this morning she called my necklace a bracelet and I said no, it’s a necklace, it goes around your neck. She said, necklace around neck.
My house needs a good cleaning. Maybe after the yard sale if MIL still has Emma I’ll do that. Scott will be gone for the day and I might actually be able to enjoy a clean house for more than 15 minutes before it is trashed again. It is kind of funny..the more I live with Scott, the more I hate clutter. I’m starting to value a living room with nothing on the floor or tables. I like looking across to the other side of the room and nothing interferes with “the view”. It just feels clean and good and right. Don’t tell Scott I said that though. My one pair of shoes allowed in the living room rule will be reduced to none and then I might lose my sanity although I might actually enjoy the clean floor.
