Where did February go?!  I guess I've been busy!

February 13th.  What a day.  I look exhausted, but Katie looks ready to eat.  Someday soon I need to write down her birth story so I don't forget.  I'm not sure I have time right now, I still have to go to the bathroom, take a shower, and clean the kitchen before she wakes up again.  The short version - it seemed like everything was going wrong!  We were scheduled to be at the hospital 8 pm February 12th, but we didn't get a room until an hour later.  After an hour and a half, a nurse finally came in to start an IV.  It took her 3 times.  Ouch.  The next day, the epidural didn't work the first time, so they had to do it again.  Ouch.    After a certain point, being induced wasn't working out, so it was time for a c-section.  I guess the epidural wasn't working well enough, I wasn't numb, so they had to put me under.  I wasn't really disappointed, but Billy was since he wasn't allowed in then.  I seriously don't know how women do this more than once!

Love love love this sweet face.

37 weeks! 

The doctor is testing me for preeclampsia, so I had to give some blood yesterday and bring home a container to collect my urine for 24 hours.  I still haven't worked out what I'm going to say tomorrow when I bring it back, 'I'm just dropping off my jug of pee.'  Or, 'Here's my urine sample' and then pull out this giant container.

3 more weeks!

I finished the last 4 books in the Harry Potter series.  I'm going to miss all the characters, especially Hedwig.  I still have Deathly Hallows Part 2 to watch on dvd sometime.  All of this makes me wish I had gone to the Harry Potter theme park when I was in Orlando last year.  Oh well, next time.  Butterbeer, pumpkin juice, chocolate frogs.....yum.

36 weeks!

My family came to visit me last weekend and my sister made me a delicious baby shower cake.  I didn't technically have a baby shower, but she brought a few things for the baby and my parent's got us the crib and dresser so they got to see everything put together, and my brother has been sending us a lot of stuff.  The next day, I went out with Billy's mom and sister and they got us a few things, including a car seat (whew, now we can at least bring her home!).  There's just a couple more things I want (extra crib sheets, and maybe some burpcloths) and I think that's it!

34 weeks!  We just painted the ceiling in the nursery today and put up a new ceiling fan.  It has made such a difference in the room.  The crib and dresser should be here sometime this week.  I need to look for a few accessories and then I can't wait to see everything together.  People ask me about cravings, and I'm not convinced this is a pregnancy craving, but I seriously can't stop drinking orange soda and orange icees. Newest symptom - crotch pain.  Yep.  No wonder I'm waddling, it hurts to walk.  And I think I've mentioned that it's exhausting to flip sides in bed.  And I have stretch marks.  Oh, well.  

Blooper pic.  Sheldon decided to stand in front of me and try to hack up a hair ball.  Lovely.

Snow pics!  We didn't have power, so I didn't venture out to play in the snow knowing that I couldn't warm up afterwards.  But Sheldon did...

He loved it!

We had some limbs come down.  Nothing serious, although a couple of them sounded scary.  There's a little bit of damage to the front porch railing, but thankfully that was it.  All these tall trees around the house scare me!

Look who's a big dog now!  Sheldon turned 1 on Saturday (ish).  That's also the day we got our power back on from the winter storm, so all 4 of those blankets he's laying on got washed that very night.  He didn't appreciate them disappearing one by one.  He loved his package of salmon and he also got a new toy that he hasn't completely destroyed - yet.

I thought this quote was quite fitting for the new year.  I tore it out of an Oprah magazine years and years ago, maybe 2000 or 2001.  I guess it really meant something to me.  Comforting.  Hopeful.  Thank goodness I've had more than one chance. 

Happy New Year!
