We went to Lava today with some friends.  It was AWESOME.  I can't actually swim yet, but everyone else got in and it was soooo fun!  P loved going down the kiddy slide, and jumping into the arms of Seth, our friend.  I didn't make E wear clothes at the pool and she loved every second of it.  P was a swaddle kind of kid and he could have spent every second curled up in a ball.  E spends a lot of time with her legs straight and since it was so hot she stretched her arms out too.  It's funny how they're different.  He wasn't a pacifier kid and she DEFINITELY is.  He didn't want to have anything to do with nursing and she loves it. It's so fun getting to know her.  I think she and P look exactly the same (you can see pictures of P at this same age here).  She's a little darker in her hair and skin, and she's a little hairier than he was (it's super cute now, but will be a bummer later in life).

Not his greatest smile...

Some sun a day keeps the jaundice away...

Being silly...

My Life is a Gift EDIT

For whatever reason, I've been singing this song at least a few times a day since E was born.  It's so pretty, and I want it to go in her (& P's) room.  So, I made it into subway art!  I already have a frame that I'm looking forward to putting it into.  If you'd like it just email me and I'll send the file to you.  

EDIT:  I didn't notice that two of the fonts were the same.  I also reworked some other things I didn't like. 

Miss Lina's Ballerinas

I read this book and think it's divine.  If I could have a choice, I'd have E's life feel like this book.

I don't want her to get jaundice, so I sit her in front of the window for a few minutes.  She's soakin in the sun.      

 P talked a lot about the different things he wanted to do with E when she got here, and one of them was watch movies with her.  Now she can.

This started out as kisses, and at this point is now just blowing on her face and laughing.

A few more of E

Here are a couple more pictures...

In these I think she looks like a flapper with her headband and "fur" wrapped around.

She's Finally Here!

July 21, 2011, at 12:55 in the afternoon Emma Gray was born.  She weighed 6lb 14oz and was 20 inches long.  She's a superstar.  We don't have super great pictures of her yet, but we'll put more and more up.  P's been pretty good happy about the whole thing, so far.  We'll see how it goes.  She has really pretty skin and dark hair.  Labor was a dream, because I had an epidural and everything worked the way it was supposed to.  I pushed 3 times and she was out.  It was fantastic.

Sparklers & Update

J bought some sparklers discounted after the 4th and we had  BLAST with them.

Baby Update: E still hasn't shown up, yet.  She's 4 days overdue, today, but Thursday is my next induction date.  If the pitocin still doesn't work, I'll have to have a c-section, which is not something I ever wanted, but we'll just see what happens!  I'll keep you all updated!

4th of July

We went to Malad (like always), for the 4th of July and had a blast (of course)!  P didn't really get the concept of getting the candy off the ground in the middle of the road, so he cried a little because of us all yelling at him to go get the candy.  It was cute.  He then started out just getting the candy one by one and by the end of the parade he was stealing candy from other kids...We had a great day, and P loved the fireworks at the end of the day.  Grandma Bodily bought P a matching shirt (matching with her) and they wore jeans & red converse shoes for their 4th of July outfits.

Groucho Marx

P discovered one day he could drink chocolate milk with no milk...I've never seen a kid so in heaven.  Then when I took his cup full of chocolate syrup away, he just licked the remaining chocolate off the table.  It's been a fight ever since to make him put milk in his chocolate milk.

Also, I'm now pretty antsy for E to get friend Linda says E wants to grow out her hair before she shows up so she looks less like an old man and more like a little girl.  I might work on trying to check off some stuff on my 25 things list today to pass the time...

Home from Hospital--Emma's Still Inside

We went into the hospital this morning, took the pill, walked around for a few hours, got measured (had increased to 1 1/2 centimeters...), started the pitocin, and 2 hours later was no different.  My body seems to have a hard time with medication--sleeping medicine doesn't do anything, and it seems like pitocin doesn't either.  So, they sent me home and we'll have to wait until E shows up on her own.  I was disappointed...but it'll be fine.  She'll get here when she gets here.  It'll give me some time to make some ruffle bums for her.

Thanks everyone who sent encouraging texts, etc.  I really appreciate every bit of it, and I'll keep you updated!

Oceans Eleven

With P, I used the Andy Warhol quote for waiting for P to come, but as I was editing E's picture, all I could hear was the bril line from Oceans Eleven with the Mormon twins at their track where the one guy says to the other "Waiting, Sweetheart, just waiting..."  The "sweetheart" isn't actually a name of affection in this instance, and while I am SO excited for her to get here, I feel the same facetious tone , so if you don't know the line from the movie, read the line with some sass.  The first image is 2 days before P showed up, and we'll see how long it takes before E shows...
