* A few weeks ago we had Spencer's birthday party. Imagine the cutest Mariner's baseball cake EVER (thanks to the amazing help of Heather) since all of the pictures are on my mom's camera and my email is still blocking all her incoming messages. He had a blast.
*A little less than a few weeks ago was Spencer's baptism. It was perfect, and at only a half hour long, it was delightful. He was given his own set of scriptures by me and Brad and now spends his free time reading, because "it's important mom." He started at Genesis, Chapter 1. Good luck, buddy. If I can figure out how to load the video I made of him, I will post it. It is priceless.
*Last week I cried on Dr. T's shoulder as he tried to A) reduce the umbilical hernia that is back and making me want to shoot myself and B) told me to wait until my next appointment for an induction date. His advice to me was, shockingly, bed rest, and I told him that as long as I could keep carpooling, making my kids food, keeping up the house, and being all around MOM, I would go on bed rest. It's working out real well for me. The good news with the hernia is that it's too late for me to have surgery on it which is what happened in my seventh month of pregnancy with Hannah. The bad news is that it's too late for me to have surgery on it which is what happened in my seventh month of pregnancy with Hannah and RELIEVED ALL THE PAIN. He asked me to describe the pain and I told him it felt like someone was holding a lit match to my stomach around the clock. Yeah, it's a doozer.
*This morning I got my hair done by the amazing Megan and while I was hoping it would make me look a whole lot better, it really only made my hair look a whole lot better. The rest of me is still beyond repair.
*Pool construction is under way. Hooray!
*My dear friend Kelly comes the end of this week to wait on me hand and foot and I'm so excited to see her smiling face I can hardly stand it.
*Oops, carpooling duty calls. Better hop up off bed rest!
