Our Weekend and Baby's Birthday

Saturday was such a beautiful day. We were standing in the grass at the park getting ready to launch Trevor's kite for the first time and I turned to Dave and said, "Is it really November?" With the sun shining and the air warm, a good breeze blowing, I held the kite and Dave took off running. When I let it go, the boys were all smiles (Dave included) as the kite, that looked like a dragon with his wings spread, rose into the blue sky. Trevor helped Dave hold the string and a few onlookers stopped to watch our colorful kite soaring through the air. After the kite flying we played a bit (Trevor climbing the "castle" and Colin wanting to just stay on the swing the whole time) and then we came home for lunch and naps. It was such a fun day and just perfect.

I had a doctor's appointment today and all is well. As I was getting ready to leave I asked the doctor if I could schedule my C-section so we looked at a calendar, called the hospital and got everything scheduled. I'll have the baby on January 18th! First my doctor suggested the 15th but I told him no since it was my birthday, even though Dave thinks I should have him on my birthday since Colin was born on his - but I have a choice here and Colin just happened to come on that day. I wanted to have the surgery on a Friday so I could be in the hospital for the weekend and Dave could take a whole week off from work and be home with me. I just wanted to plan it out that way I wanted since both Trevor and Colin were surprises and Dave always had to go back to work a few days after I got home from the hospital. It's nice to have it planned, to know when he is going to come and to feel like I can actually be prepared this time.

It is so nice to be able to plan when the baby will come. To me (cause I'm not the one pregnant) it seems like your pregnancy has gone by really fast. It will be fun to see you this weekend.
