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.
