The kids and I went for a walk when I got home tonight. We were right in front of our house on our way back when a truck flew by....didn't even slow down AT ALL, just swerved, and both of our kittens were in the road. I told the kids not to watch, and for some reason plugged my ears. The idiot missed both of the kittens somehow, and I stifled the urge to flip the guy off. The speed limit on our road is 45mph and you'd think if you saw a lady with a bunch of kids on the road you'd slow down some....anyway.
Brookelyn's birthday is on Tuesday, but we decided last minute to do her birthday at Mom's tomorrow. I took her to Walmart to pick out her gift. SHe picked out a dog trainer Barbie, a My Little Pony shirt and pants to match, a wooly lined hooded sweatshirt, a My Little Pony coloring book, and some lip gloss. It was a fun little mommy/princess shopping excursion and I'm looking forward to more just me & her days. She keeps saying "only x # of days til my birthday...that means yer havin' yer baby in x days! Are you excited?"
Trae and Elliot were surprisingly accepting of the fact that only me and Brookleyn were going to the store. Trae said bye and everything, when usually he cries and says buhbye? He has been talking up a storm, and will probably age so much one the baby comes. Some recent new words: Chocolate, cracker, moo, nuk...he's turning into a little boy.
As for this baby in my womb, he is being pretty stubborn. I have major contractions when I walk but they calm right down when I stop. Anyone think walking for hours would make him come out? I'm really ready and getting impatient.

No baby...

I am shooting a wedding this afternoon. They asked me to do ceremony, formals, and the park, and then I am free to go home while my sidekick(s) finish up at the reception. I figure I should have some steady contractions by then, since it is a lot of bending, walking, and WORK, shooting weddings. I can;t beleive how sore I am the next day.
Last night, me and Nikki went out walking. I had contractions like crazy and a lot of pressure, but as soon as we got back and sat, they stopped. I hate this waiting game and I wish my water would break so it'd be a sure thing! (not at the wedding, of course!) I am looking forward to meeting our son, and my diaper bag finally came yesterday so I have to go to the post office and pick it up. I'll do that this morning and pack it and my hospital bag when I get home and then we can head into the hospital!! Optimism works sometimes....
