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!

Maybe you'll luck out and she'll be here by Friday :) Can't wait to see that gorgeous girl!!!!

I think it was the hormones making you emotional....they're crazy at the end...or at least you can blame it on them.

Two eyes...that cracked me up! I love the things that come out of kid's mouths...too cute

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you. I hope delivery with Kate is speedy and painless...(I know but still) I can't wait to see pictures of her.
