Kids....

I am having trouble sleeping tonight due to a pesky cyst on my ovary that is horrendously painful. I figure rather than lay in bed and dwell on it, i'd spend some quality time with my laptop....
Today, Brookelyn had many cute things to say. For instance:
I repeated the Draino test to see if the result was the same( i'm back to being sure it's a girl, I even prayed tonight that God woould protect "her" and then caught myself...) Anyhow, I came out of the bathroom with the pee which smells terrible ( it's not me, it's the mixture of Draino and pee) and Brookelyn said " So, does it smell like a girl or a boy?" I never do this test until I have a "feeling" what the baby is. For some reason it gives me great pleasure to be able to guess...both times it came back girl. This test has been spot on for all 3 of my kids, but others (like Jaime, who now has 3boys...) thought they were having one sex, and ended up with the other. Supposedly, it's more accurate the earlier you do it.

Another example: She was trying to tell Elliot something and he wasn't paying attention. She started out " Elliot, your a bad mann...mannn...um" Bad manners? I said. "yeah, because he's rude cause he's not listening." Later on (5mins) With confidence she goes " Elliot, your a bad manager! You're bein' rude!"

And my final story: I told her as I was rushing around trying to get things all set for meeting mind you, that my parents would be in Mexico for about 10 days. Fast forward to after meeting: She apparently doubted my story and asked my mom because she comes up and says "Mom, your wrong because you said Grandma is goin' to Mexico for 10 days but she's not, she's goin' for only 7." " So yer wrong" Just like that. My mom says she takes after me, and now that she brings it up, I remember being scolded for correcting my mom ( and Grandma) alot as a kid.

Traeman has been throwing tantrums that are OFF THE CHARTS!!! I am really hoping that when his tooth comes in they will disappear, but at his last chech-up the doctor mentioned ignoring tantrums so.....
He doesn't allow you to ignore them. He sits at your feet and flings himself at you. Today, he would flop forward, banging his head into my shins (yes, this hurt us both) and then sit up and do it again. Other times, he'll grab my hair or pinch or bite....he hates to be told no. He has started to do lip ups even when we say calmly "No." We need to stop this behavior IN ITS TRACKS! Just kidding, i'm not that harsh, but I suppose every parent fears their child growing into a monster during the really trying times. He's a sweet kid, he just has a molar coming in, which i'm sure hurts like crazy.

Elliot was Citizen of the Week at school. They choose a kid from each class each week. He has been talking the last several weeks about how this Ale (pronounced like Ally, he corrected me) was always the Citizen. I guess he got the award for showing excellent Body Basics. I had to ask him what Body Basics were: hands to yourself, eyes on the taecher, inside voice, good listener. He's adorable when he rattles them off, because he stands straight up like a soldier with his hands to his side. I suspect this is how they do it when they recite them at school. So, i'm proud of him, and he's proud of himself. He showed his picture with all the other "Citizens" to everyone after meeting.

I suppose to not leave anyone out, i'll mention quickly that the baby's heartrate was 146bpm, and s/he is 1cm long. Remind me again why my clothes are getting tight....oh, I must have shrunk them. Silly me!

Drum Roll Please.......

If everything goes as planned, Nate & Marsha will be welcoming their new twin daughters, who were born February 2. They weighed 5lbs 11oz and 6lbs 11oz, and are healthy. They will be picking them up from Georgia, and plan to leave on the 15th, and expect to be down there a week or more. They couldn't refuse when they were offered twin babies, but they were only expecting one baby sometime between now and July. The nursery is all painted and the floors were re-done last weekend, but is empty except for about 10 outfits.....anything anyone has pertaining to twin girls that they don't need or want would be greatly appreciated. They haven't decided on names, as a matter of fact, they didn't even have one girl name picked out let alone two! We are very excited to be uncle and auntie and can't wait to meet these girls. They will be so loved around here. So here's to everything going as planned, and the twins arriving home happy and healthy!


Congrats Nate & Marsha, we're here for you!!!....and we love these little girls already. You'll be great. Love, Jason & Amber

Official due date....

We had another ultrasound this morning and my official due date is September 20,2008. It should be very close to Brookelyn's birthday, as she was due the 23rd, and born on the 9th.

Trae spent his first night away from home last night. I slept amazing....to bad I had to be up at 7am to get ready for the ultrasound. He isn't as clingy as usual, I wonder if he's angry with me for leaving him? Maybe his molar came through, he's had one that is so swollen it had a blood blister on it. It's been that way for about a week, so he's been a bit crabby.

I am exhausted, after all it is 11:35am. I worked last night, so I really didn't go overboard on the sleep. We have meeting here tonight, but I think I may be able to grab a nap this afternoon.

I have some other amazing news, but I can't post it yet....
