Not much to report! +first day of school pics

Not much to report from my doctor's appt. today....I am a little more effaced, dialated about the same, and she has dropped quite a bit-----which explains why my heartburn has subsided (for the most part!) Just playing the waiting game for now....12 days until the doctor will induce.......wishing all these braxton hicks would turn into something more exciting!
On another note, here are some pics from the first day of school....finally uploaded them after two weeks! It's not like me to wait that long, but I've got better things to nesting and napping!! I always love photos with school buses in the background...such great color!

Waiting, waitng, and more waiting.

The good news is that she has "dropped"...but still 75% effaced and dialated between 1 and 2. I had lots and lots of contractions last night....strong enough to wake me up, but no consistency to them. I've got another appointment on Friday, so I'll update more then!
On another note, 3 of my 4 boys were in school today. The total time of overlap was about an hour and a half...but who's counting? :) All three are loving school (so far)....

I've never cried when I dropped anyone off at school before...(not sure what kind of mama that makes me)......and then I watched as my two big boys walked into school the other day.....VERY slyly holding hands....and I cried and cried and cried...they were so cute, and sweet, and so grown up!
One funny story...then I'm going to bed....
Went to Parent Orientation tonight for Alex (2nd grade)...and I was looking through some of the work he had done. I was flipping through a "book" he had made called "All About Me." The first page was pretty much a statement of the facts about him.... There were sentences and he had to fill in the blanks......This is what it said....
My full name is __Alexander David__.
But I like to be called _____Alex____.
I am ____8____ years old.
I have ____Brown____ hair.
and I have ____TWO___ eyes......HA HA HA! not brown or green eyes....TWO eyes.... it just hit my funny bone and I was totally cracking up.......I love that kid!
Peace out!

News from my Uterus

Had my first "check" yesterday at the doctor...I'm 75% effaced, dialated between a 1 and 2, but her head is still high (which is actually normal for me). I am crampy and miserable today, but no real contractions or anything....that's about all I've got to report from down there! :)
'Til next time, this is Liz N. reporting from my uterus...:0
