On this day last year, at this time in the evening- 8:15 pm; daddy and I were packing our bags for the hospital. I had gotten off the phone with the doctor just about 15 min ago and she had said to come in and get checked to see if I was really in labor and progressing. I knew I was as my uterus felt like it had ADD and was bouncing off the walls. That morning in the paper I had read that tonight would there was supposed to be a full "blue" moon. I said to your daddy that maybe you would be born today because we all know things happen when there is a full moon. Guess mama is always right. What a year it has been. Not a day goes by where I don't thank God for you ( and your father). We have loved you since we found out you were there growing inside of me. We loved you when I spent more hours with my head in a trash can throwing up than I did doing anything else. In fact daddy joked that we were going to name you pain in the ass- PITA. Because that is how I felt about the never ending morning sickness that made me too sick to get out of bed, too sick to go to work and too sick to do anything for 3 months straight!!! We loved you as we watched my thighs expand and my belly button pop out. We loved you through 7 hours of labor and 1 hour of drugless pushing. We loved you through (3)- 2nd degree vaginal tears and one lovely case of hemorrhoids. Yup it's all been worth it. We loved you through all 5 nights the past year where you didn't sleep at least a 5 hour stretch!!!! We loved you though every screaming diaper change where you just wouldn't lie still for 5 seconds. Its been so much fun watching you grow and change and to see and learn who you are becoming. We can't wait to see who you become, just make sure you continue sleeping and always remain happy.
Mama and Daddy

Don't worry. We aren't going to stink. We can still take baths. As long as we don't get any water on the exposed boards. Tile removed- check, wet drywall removed- check, old insulation removed- check check. Life without a shower??? Going to be difficult. Hopefully not for long though. Bathfitters should be able to come in this coming week or early next week at the latest!

The new window in the shower goes in!!!!!!!! Ahhhh its so pretty. I have an obsession with windows that have the grill work in them ( the criss cross things that form the squares in the window) I just think the window looks 10 times prettier them the grill work. Mike did a great job. Its been raining on and off all day. The kind of rain that just all of a sudden starts and is a soaking downpour so it was a challenge to get it down with all the rain. I also started putting my garden in !! Yippeee!! Alli watched Keira so I could get a few seeds in in between soaking downpours. I still have carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, and spinach to get planted but its currently raining again!!! Once its all planted Ill post some pics of course.

Keira wouldn't go to bed last night. She usually goes to bed around 630-730 pm. Its just when she gets tired. Last night she was tired but would not go to sleep. She did this before and usually it means she has to poop. She we let her stay up. She had fun playing with mama's cell phone, pounding on the laptop, eating italian ice with daddy etc etc. Finally around 9pm she pooped and after that she went right not bed!!! Crazy

Mike continued work on the bathroom today removing the old window and some of the tile. We were right in our suspicions that water was leaking behind the tile. You can see the big wet spot on the drywall. So hopefully the new window will go in today and the new drywall sometime this week and Bathfitter can come and install our new tub surround!!

This is what happens when your baby is very very quiet!!! Once I discovered what she was doing I left her alone. It bought me 5 min to get the pork chops and potatoes seasoned and in the oven for dinner!!!
