The baby shower was this past Sunday and everything went great. My mom did an excellent job decorating and planning. It went really smooth and it was so cute. We are so thankful to have such wonderful family and friends. Here are a few pictures of the shower.
Well I tried to post last weekend but for some reason my video would never load. So by the time I got everything down I was sick of it and just deleted it. I tried to post a video of C belly moving. It was a 45 second video and I waited 45 minutes for it to down load and nothing so I guess I wont be posting videos unless someone can tell me why it takes so long.
We have had three of our birthing classes and so far so good. I think its kind of funny because our teacher will say something about the Dads and then look at me and then say partner or support person. I guess they are trying. Everyone is very nice in our class. One of the reasons we chose this hospital is because we have had other lesbian families say they delivered there and they were very kind to them. It's a good 45 minute drive for us but it sound like the average delivery is 12 to 24 hours so I think we should be good. I wish it was a little closer for our families but we wanted to be sure we were comfortable with the doctors.
We are also having our baby shower this weekend. My mom is hosting it and she is a little OCD. She gets an idea in her head and if she cant find something she will make it. She won't tell us anything about it, she wants it to be a surprise. She has made a spread sheet of what shes bought and every time I call her she is cleaning. My moms house is never dirty so I have no idea what she is cleaning. Oh wait she said she wad cleaning the fake leaves on the tree and the blinds and shampooing the carpet and cleaning the windows, but she said she wasn't doing much. She even burned up her vacuum and had to buy a new one.
We also have a new nephew he was born on Tuesday the 18th. Cristpher James he is 20 1/2 inches and 8 lbs. 13 oz. We are going over to visit him tonight. Yeah!
Well today was supposed to be our first birthing class. I was so excited about it because I feel like this is the part where I can be involved and it got canceled due to the weather. Since Christmas we have been blasted with snow. This is the most snow I have ever seen in this area. The people who live in Colorado would probably laugh at our snow amount. Its kind of funny because the schools close down because the snow and the below 0 temperature but what do they do in Colorado or anywhere else up north? Nobody would ever have to go to school. I guess their cities are more prepared to handle it. I feel like I am shoveling everyday I even have to shovel the back yard so the dogs can go potty. Kinser our Lhasa had a rough Monday he actually got his tongue stuck to the metal plate that goes across the bottom of the door and C had to get warm water to get it off. I guess he was pulling so hard trying to get it off she thought he was going to pull it off before she got back with the water. Blood was everywhere poor guy. His feet get cold too so he walks all funny and we have to put the babies socks on him. I guess we better put socks on our registry.
Well Christmas and New Years has came and went. Now we can start focusing on what we are going to have to do before this baby gets here. We have 68 days until our due date but they say only five percent come on the due date. I hope we have our little bumpkin before and not after. I cant imagine what it will be like if we have to wait any longer. It would also mess up the time I requested off of work. We are going over to my moms tonight to start making the invitation list for the shower. We thought it would just be a small shower but C and I both have people asking us to send them an invite. I thought people hated going to these things so we were just going to invite mostly family but I was surprise at how many people want to come not even knowing us that well. We also start our first birthing class this Thursday. It always makes me nervous to go somewhere and not know if that one person that hates "gays" is going to be there to ruin our special time. I haven't ran across any but I know they are out there and I hope I can be strong and ignore them if and when it happens. Happy 2010!
