we’re here

welp- we made it! i had a great time at smokey row last night. i was the first to leave around 9:30. i hated being the first to leave but liz had done so well. she didn’t nurse constantly and she played well with the other kiddos so i thought i’d scoot out while i was ahead. i hope c had a great time! i sure did! it was so much more comfortable than a traditional shower. i loved the whole atmosphere. kudos to the gals who planned it. : ) you did good!!! i hope i get to put one on myself someday! maybe i should say what it was:

it was a momma blessingway “shower”. it’s traditional for homebirth/natural birth (i think). the whole idea, is showering the momma with blessings/prayers, etc. i was/am totally jealous i didn’t get one!! lol but that’s alright!! putting one on for someone else is more rewarding! there are a lot of traditions that go along with the blessingway, we all got candles that we will light when the momma texts/calls and tells us she’s in labor. we have prayer cards that we pray now and also be in constant prayer for her while she’s in labor. we each selected three beads (from a group of color coordinated beads) that heather, my sister strung for c as a necklace to wear during labor or before/after as a constant reminder! how cool, huh!!!! 

well i suppose i better scoot. i hear mom down in the kitchen. we have rolls, scalloped potatoes, and lunch to make and oh play with all the cool toys here! last night lizzie had a hard time going to bed. she LOVES playing in the attic with gma pammy’s pretend dishwasher, sink, washer and dryer, etc. too much fun for one girl to handle!!! where was the camera- you might ask, well i just asked myself that while i was typing it. mmm it was 10 p.m. i don’t know anyone who thinks that well at that time of night. : )
