Maggie & Rusty

Saturday was my nephew Craig's birthday party. He was having a "cowboy" theme so everyone was asked to wear your favorite gowboy/girl gear. Maggie LOVES her hot pink cowgirl boots (even though they are STILL a size too big for her).

The pony ride was a BIG hit. She went 3 or 4 times.

the secret cervix

I had an OB Appointment last night, the non-stress test was very non-stressful....I got to sit in an air-conditioned room in a very comfy recliner, with my poor, swollen hooves up, listening to baby's heartbeat for 30 whole minutes. No phones, no boss, just peace and quiet and the lovely whoosh-whoosh sound of William.
Then I lie on Dr. K's table. Egads! I've forgotten how uncomfortable an internal exam is....I have this little Korean woman up to her elbows prodding at my "stuff". She tells me that I am "closed up tight". Well, thanks. I go back every week now until delivery for nst's and internals (oh joy!).

On a more pleasant note (la-la-la-la) We will be celebrating Miss Maggie's Third Birthday on Sunday. Just a small gathering (HA!!! there are 30 people just IN THE FAMILIES!!) at the house. I hope the weather holds and everyone will be out in the pool or running around in the "yarden" as Mag calls it.

So tonight will consist of dropping her at MIL's so I can go pick up her lawn swing and a few party goods. Order the cake, buy the ice cream, then head back home, stash the loot in the powder room, and start to get the house in order.

Here's the most recent pics I have of my baby on the beach. Yes, Maggie is One of THOSE
kids. She loves to throw sand. So, if we've gotten any sand on your towel, we're sorry.

Have a great weekend everybody!! Posted by Picasa

My budding Artiste

Last night, Maggie wanted to work with fingerpaints. Hell, If I'm able to turn off "Barbie as Rupunzel" I'm all for it.

After I had emailed a copy of this pic to Joe on his phone, he calls me to ask if she was painting "topless". He says it looks like she doesn't have a shirt on in this picture.....

I tell him, Scroll down to the next 2 pictures.

OF COURSE SHE'S TOPLESS!!! Do you know hard it is to get fingerpaint out of clothes??

I think she may have been trying out for Rebecca Romajin's role in X-Men, but she LOVES to paint her belly. And the table. Luckily, I caught her before she wiped her hands on the curtains. AGAIN. Posted by Picasa

Cat's so called life

****Update**** Tuesday 06/06/06 8:51 a.m.

Joe just called to tell me that they delivered Vinny & Heather's baby boy last night.
He's 1 lb 1 ounce.

No, of course he didn't get any additional information. He's such a guy!

I still don't know his name. Vinny wanted Nicholas, but Heather wanted Thomas. We'll see who "wins".

I will try to call the hospital later today and get some better info.
Thank you for your god wishes and prayers, they're going to need them!

One of our friends is currently pregnant with their first baby. Joe just called to tell me that they may have to take the baby today.
She's only 24 weeks. She has preeclampsia and is not doing well at all.

Heather & Vinny, here's wishing you the best of luck. God bless you and the lil bambino.
