I am so anxious. All is well and I feel great darn it. I wake up each morning hopeing it is the day.
So today we are makeing Sydney's whole room over. We got her a brand new bedspread and pillows and everything for you new big girl bed. Then grandma and daddy are going to paint. She is so excited. I walked about 4 miles yesterday and nothing. I guess it is safe to say it might be a few more days. Probably a good thing. We have a primary activity tomorrow and I am in the pres. so I had better do my calling then the lord will let this little angel come. In his time.

All is well, all is great.

false labor

HI everyone.

So this weekend was crazy!!! I started with contractions all day Saturday and by 12:30pm we were on our way to the hospital. contractions were strong and about 3 mins. apart. So we thought it time to go. When we got to the hospital and checked in they were about 5 min. apart and by 3 they had stopped completely. They kept us for 2 extra hours and sent us home 90% effaced and dilated to a 3. So that is where we sit. waiting waiting waiting. Oh well. My mom is coming to stay tomorrow. That will be fun to have her here. We haven't seen her since christmas. I will keep everyone updated.

Sydney is potty trained, officially. It has finally happened. We have been working on this for months and months. She was there and then she was indifferent and then it was just wet panties all the time. But I am proud to say she is there. Knock on wood. We had a ceremony offering her small princess potty up to the potty faries coincidently on the same night the trash goes out. We said "Oh potty faries, take this my offering and bring me a treat!!" She was so cute with her arms in the air yelling at the sky. The next morning she found a bag of treats and coloring books and playdoh on the door step, from the faries. She has been going on the big potty ever since. She is so proud.
So not much else is happening. Dr. said anytime or 2-3 weeks. 1-2 centimeters dialated and 80% effaced. So it is out of my hands. Just keep us in your prayers. I am nervous this time around.
Mark taught Syder to say peace out and what's up dog. as you can see.

So we watched the movie Untraceable. holy cow. eeewwwwww and oh my!!! It was eye opening about how easy it is for people to find you on the internet. Computer hacking made simple I guess. Mark gets nervous about putting pictures and info online so I may keep it to a minimum. Please don't use names and places when you comment. Thanks.

Other than that we are having a great time getting ready for #2. Syd gets a big girl bed this week. She is so excited. mom is going to help us give her room an entire makeover, painting and new bedspread and curtains. The works. I can't wait. :)

For any of you who don't know us well, Mark is a professional photographer. He started in Cedar City about 10 years ago and he runs his business here in PA. He loves it. So.... we tend to post a bazillion pictures. Here is one of Sydney trying to hear what the baby is saying to her.

Sydney loves her daddy. She loved their fishing trip.

So many pictures so little time.
