If you would, go over to Stacie's blog Here Storkey Storkey for info and updates temporarily.
Mommy's had a long day...
So, I'm in my room... Baby is doing great on the monitor! Yay!
I've been keeping in touch with the outside world giving updates and getting things done. Can't get a stable connection via my laptop, but I'm rockin my Droid. :)
Thanks to everyone for their well-wishes and concern... It means a lot to know you guys are out there rooting for me and my little girl!
Speaking of which, I just had an uplifting conversation with Stacie, of Here Storky. Thanks so much for the chat girlfriend!
So, dinner is served... What are we having? A GD dinner was ordered for me... Hmmm....
- A roll - high glycemic index, check!
- Apple sauce - high glycemic, ck!
- Apple juice - hg index, ck!
- Rice, plain (we wouldn't want any spice to get on there, would we?) - very high glycemic index, double-check!
- Cooked carrots, totally plain, thank you very much - also very high glycemic index, double-check!
- Piece of over-cooked lightly spiced chicken - whew! Thought they weren't going to sneak anything healthy in there! Just made it!
So, I sent it back. I just hope this crushed ice isn't all I get until hubby gets here.

My wonderful coworkers threw me a full-fledged Baby Shower party with balloons and the whole 9.
During the shower 2 of the ladies insisted hubby and I stand, then they brought over the cake... We were given a cake knife and then there was some distraction about where the candle went... I started giggling a little because I was thinking it sounded like it was someone's birthday...
They apparently couldn't find the candle, so decided the cherry on the cake would have to suffice... Which confused the crowd greatly...
I started giggling harder (and was not alone) when we were instructed to hold hands while we cut the cake. Hubby says, "Didn't we do that already? This seems familiar"...
Laughter in the group started to really build...
Then one of the two ladies starts clapping and singing, "Happy baby shower to you..." to the tune of "He's a Jolly Good Fellow". I started laughing so hard I had to sit down.
So we had a WONDERFUL baby-shower-wedding-birthday-congratulations-on-the-great-job shower!
I love these people!
P.S. If you didn't figure it out for yourself, the two ladies are not originally from this country, but I'm so thankful they are here and love me enough to throw me such a great party.

All's well. By morning my boy wanted nothing more than to be with mommy. Hubby and I were at a loss for words.
Today we plan to go shopping for cheap Halloween decorations, because I've lost my mind and invited people to my home for a party next Saturday night.
Yes, You read that right... I'm throwing a party at my home at 35 wks PG. I think this is the difference between a new Mom and a seasoned Mom. Either that, our I'm just crazy.
US went well on Friday... Baby is looking good. Have another scheduled for Monday. Baby is sideways (transverse), which has been a challenge got me physically, but she seems to have moved this afternoon, so I'm feeling a little easier now... Then again, my hip now hates me... Anyway... All is basically well.

I've never really understood how or why people send their kids to bed without din ner. My parents never used that tool, they made us suffer through dinner while they gave us the hairy eyeball... I've always thought that was bad enough.
Tonight my kid has taught me that I really don't know a damn thing about parenting. I'm totally ready to send a 2.5 year old to bed without dinner to get him out of my sight.
He decided that he wanted Daddy instead of Mommy to pick him up from school, so he refused to leave with me... Can you say embarrassing? Then he finally realized he had no choice, so he proceeded to berate me all the way home, sulk, and said he didn't like his Mommy.
This escalated to a full-on tantrum at home... Wherein my lovely son told me to go away, that I was not nice. Time-out turned into a mess...
I ended up leaving him lying on the floor crying, while I went out on the deck and had a calming period. Then I made myself dinner, offered him some (which he refused), and proceeded to eat by myself while my son continued to tell me how unworthy I am.
Oddly enough the insults, minor as they really were, stopped hurting or making me mad after a few mins... I just wanted him to be on bed so I didn't have to play the game anymore.
I'd say he is going to wish I hadn't learned to think that way... What do you think?
Btw- I couldn't help but think of the new baby on the way... Do we have to do this all again? I guess if we are lucky then yes, I guess we do.

What's up? Hmmmm... Think I'll do this post in bullets, so it actually gets done.
