Still Cookin'

I haven't posted in a couple of days simply because I haven't really had anything exciting to report. I'm still very pregnant, and even though I've been having lots of Braxton Hicks contractions and some real ones, too, nothing is consistent. I go to the doctor tomorrow morning. I'm praying for more progress! I just assumed Mary Ellen would come about 2 weeks early, just like her sister, but this little one is showing me that she wants a birth story all her own - she's an individual afterall :). I'm doing the walking every day, trying to stay on my feet and busy (Hattie helps me with that!), and eating spicy foods, but this little one just seems to be content where she is, as cramped as it is.

I've been trying to stay busy with little projects. I finished the nursery. Sorry no pics yet. I made this cute little "princess tutu" for Hattie:

My bags are packed. The house is clean. I'm trying to stay on top of laundry, so I'm not overwhelmed with housework when I come home........every time I go to clean the bathrooms, which is my LEAST favorite household chore, I think, "This is the last time I have to do this before the baby comes." Then I find my(still very pregnant)self back in there with the scrub brush 3-4 days later. Ever since we've started potty training, it seems like the bathroom starts to smell and gets dirty days after I do a deep clean.......what's up with that?!?! Not my favorite part of potty training, BUT I'm pretty confident that Hattie is 90% potty-trained, and the thought of only having ONE baby in diapers when Mary Ellen gets here feels GOOD!

Anyways, I'm still here, and I'm still pregnant. Hopefully that fact will change very SOON! Will keep you updated :)!

You sound EXACTLY like me!!! Of course, I'm not potty training number one, but this waiting thing is tough. Who knows, our babies might have the same birthday!

Christy, let us know when you go! I keep checking facebook and asking Amy about you for updates :).

Praying for you and Justin!

Wisdom From the Pope

“The inalienable dignity of every human being and the rights which flow from that dignity - in the first place the right to life and the defense of life - are at the heart of the church's message." Pope John Paul ended his address, saying: "In spite of divisions among Christians, 'all those justified by faith through baptism are incorporated into Christ...brothers and sisters in the Lord.'"
