I know my Canon girls, Misti and Marisa, are going to shake their heads - but the Nikon won with me.

I have some learning to do!

Christmas starts tonight -

So many places to go and people to see. So, I'm going to say MERRY CHRISTMAS now, just in case. I hope you all have a wonderful time with the ones you love.

A few things-
  • I baked yesterday with my sisters and my mom. Everything was successful! WHEW.
  • I have TOO much sweet stuff - candies, cake, cookies, peanut butter bars, etc. all over my kitchen.
  • I feel like I might barf if I look at another pecan cluster.
  • But they are so yummy.
  • I cleaned out the babygirls closet yesterday.
  • And the toy box.
  • I don't know where we will put her loot.
  • I got flowers for my birthday from my wonderful BIL, SIL, and neices. Love it!

I'm outta here.

Little Big Girl

Well the day has come. Babygirl is in her toddler bed. Oh Gawd.

I thought we had another few months of the crib. She thought differently. On Monday, while my Granny was babysitting her, she climbed out of her pack and play. I thought it was fluke, but on Tuesday I found her straddling the rail of her crib on her way out. She was unsure of her next move, so she called for me.

That night we dropped the rail off. I thought we were in for it for sure, but nope. She crawled right up in her "big bed" and was asleep with in 10 minutes.

Naptime the next day: NIGHTMARE = NO NAP. Not so great.

Since then, we've had 2 more successful nights, and a successful nap.

Babygirl is growing up, up, up.

I got a call from my dr.'s office today that my HCG levels are back into the negatives. It was a huge relief to hear that. Although, my doctor and ultrasound tech were almost certain that everything had taken care of itself, there was still a slim, small chance there could have been something lingering in my tube. My one and only tube. My levels now indicate that I no longer have to worry about that 'slim possibility' and we can continue to move forward.

Hanging in there...

I'm here. I'm doing okay. It's been a week now. We had a really busy weekend that helped keep my mind moving and that was a good thing. I still hurt, but this being the third time, I know how to cope with that hurt. I knew how I was going to feel this week, I know how I will feel 2 weeks from now. I know my emotional process. I still wish it never would have happend, but that's beyond our control. It happened.

The hardest part of it, though, is this - My best friend is pregnant. We were due 3 days apart. She saw her baby's heartbeating the day I lost mine. How ironic. With each passing day of her pregnancy I'm remined of the one I lost. I'm extremely happy for her. She was in my position just 2 months ago. She has helped me in more ways than she will ever know. She is the only friend, who really understands me.

My husband is amazing. I don't think I could have carried myself out of that room last Wednesday had he not been with me with that tear in his eye.

The babygirl has brought me so much comfort. Looking into her eyes gives me the strength to give it another shot.
