Last week was a pretty hectic one! Here is a brief recap!
Shaun and I went to the Blazer game! They lost by 25, but the entertainment was some of the best!
Our favorite was when all of the old workers got out on the floor and danced with the dancers! It was seriously hilarious!
Thursday was Grandma Grimmett's birthday. The kids colored her pictures and then we mailed them to her!
Also on Thursday, a couple of my friends threw me a great baby shower. It was so cute and fun, and there was great food.
Here we are playing a game. We had to cut out pieces of pictures from magazines and create "babies" Then I got to look through them all and pick my favorite.
This is the one I picked. Although, I know I'll never get a baby with blonde hair!
Maisey helped me open presents! What I really needed was diapers, and that is mostly what I got! :) I got a few really cute outfits as well, and some blankets, and my favorite: a car seat canopy! I really wanted one with this baby and didn't know where to buy them! My friend (who also hosted the shower) made me one and I LOVE it!
Cute rattle cupcakes that were super yummy!
My stack of diapers!
The top is a diaper cake wrapped in bath towels and wash cloths!
Friday was kind of a frustrating day. It started with me waking up at 3:30 with contractions and not being able to go back to sleep. Then Gage woke up at 6 AM!!! :( My contractions had slowed down quite a bit by lunch time. I had a doctor's appointment that afternoon and I was really hoping for good news since I was having contractions all morning. My dr. joined a practice recently, and this was my first appt. at his new place. I HATED it. I had to wait forever just to be called back (which I NEVER used to have to do). There was no cell phone reception in the waiting room so I couldn't surf the web, return messages, etc. I had to carry my own pee over to the lab (GROSS!), and I had a nurse I've never seen before and had no idea about my history (at his old office, he had one nurse, and she knew me by name and she knew everything about me.) The doctor finally came into to see me, my blood pressure was really high, he checked me (I was not dialated and 50% effaced), and I wanted to cry! I was really hoping he would just say, "Oh you are close, you should just head to the hospital now!" haha! I guess I should lower my expectations for next time.
When I walked out of my appt. this picture came through on my phone (remember: there was no cell reception, grrrrr!)
My sweet little guy snoozin away at my friend's house, SUCKING HIS THUMB! I've never seen him do that before, but it sure brightened my day a little!
Then it got worse! Gage got his haircut that evening and he actually did really well. He looks so much older right after a haircut! Then we went to Costco. I don't know why I ever take both kids to Costco at the same time. They are a disaster!!! They were both out of control, screaming, egging each other on, super wild! And I had Shaun there to help with them. He ended up just taking them out to the car and sitting with them while I finished the shopping. It was embarrassing/frustrating. Then I went to Wal-Mart where they were out of milk (?) and my vanilla wafers. :( I ended up just getting in bed at 9 pm and writing my baby shower thank-you cards (that I bought, GASP!) and going to sleep.
On Saturday, I had a mini-meltdown in the morning, mostly because of Friday's events. Got over it pretty quick, and headed to T-ball!
Which was a big muddy mess! Gage did a little better this week, but he still mostly sat and ate the mud! At least he didn't run to the park this week.
After naps on Saturday, we went and celebrated Gage's birthday! That post is to come!
Sunday was quite a day, filled with lots of emotions. It was my dad's birthday, and Shaun and I had to give talks in Sacrament meeting. I think they went pretty well, I was just glad to have them over with! Maybe we can sneak by another 3 years before we have to give them again! :) Also, on Sunday I got to go visit my newest Beehive who just turned 12 on Friday! I'm way excited to have her in my class! She is a cute girl. After naps, we headed to the cemetery to visit Papa who lives in heaven! The kids were wild, like Gage was climbing up tombstones wild, so Shaun chased them around while my mom and I got to sit and talk. We sure miss him!
The kids each had a little bouquet of yellow tulips for him.
Also, on Sunday, Shaun got the baby's car seat all ready to go! I had washed the car seat cover last week, but once it dried it never made it back on. So he made the straps the smallest they go, put the cover back on then we tied on the canopy that I got from the shower! It's sooo cute!
We are totally ready for this little girl to come!
Luckily, this next week won't be so crazy!
