Anyways, on a much lighter note, HAPPY BIRTHDAY ADELLE! My beautiful god daughter Adelle turns 1 year old today, and I am thrilled to say that they are in town and in less than 3 hours we're going up to the Read's to see her, and of course her parents. I just can't believe she's 1 already. Time sure flies.

Colby graduates from preschool tomorrow. I can't believe preschool is over. I already have him enrolled in soccer for the summer, but I'm also going to see if I can find a summer week camp or 2 for him. I hate the thought of him staying home all summer as there are no little kids around here his age that I know of. Pictures to follow of graduation.
I have been following American Idol somwhat. I am now really regretting not following it from the beginning. Yes, I admit, I have a huge crush on Chris Daughtry, like millions of other people. I can't believe how many sites have been dedicated to him just by googling his name. I now have a CD compiled of songs he sang on the show. My prediction for tonight is that Taylor Hicks is going to win. Although he can be somewhat annoying, I think that's part of his charm, and I feel he has a stronger voice than Katharine. The only song that she has sung that has made me go "wow" is "Over the Rainbow". We'll see.

I was in quite a bit of pain on Tuesday, and even called Rob at work to let him know that although I was not in labor, don't plan on leaving anything at work for Wednesday, as we may end up at the Grace Wednesday. I had a bit of a hard night on Tuesday night, and Wednesday I would have contractions, quite strong ones, that appeared to regulate and then when we thought we could head to the Grace it stopped, again. I was about ready to lose my mind. Not much sleep Wednesday night and then we ended up at the Grace for my section. When I finally made it to the operating room, well, let's just say things didn't go as planned. All I wanted throughout this entire pregnancy was to be awake for the birth. Unfortunately due to circumstances that didn't happen and I was asleep. Luckily, my amazing husband, knowing I would be extremly dissapointed when I woke, took many pictures and a few videos with the digital camera. The videos are amazing, and I still can't watch them without crying. But, I have an amazing little boy, who is happy and healthy and home.
Colby is absoutely amazing with him. He takes his role of "Big Brother" very seriously. I love watching them.
I am alright, well as alright as to be expected. I don't remember being this uncomfortable after Colby, but then again, I didn't have a 4 year old at home at the same time. Luckily for me Rob is home all week with us to give me a chance to get back on my feet. He's been absoutely amazing, not complaining once about running the house and looking after 2 kids and me.
The only thing that really honks right now is that I'm not allowed to take a bath for a few weeks. Anyone who has been in my house will understand why this is so heartbreaking for me!
But I'm home, Joey is home, we're all healthy. That's the most important thing.

THINGS I'M NOT GOING TO MISS
- Sleeping with 2 pillows under my head, one between my legs and a towel wrapped up under my belly for support
- Taking 5 minutes to get everything above in the right place
- Just getting comfortable with everything above and realizing I have to pee, again
- Peeing every hour
- Back pain
- Not being able to do a "flight of the bumblebee" and clean the entire house all at the same time
- Being constantly thirsty
- Getting out of the tub without it being a huge effort and event
- Picking things up off the floor without the use of the broom / vacuum
- Outgrowing clothes by the week
- Building up the energy to get up out of a chair or out of the car
THINGS I'M GOING TO MISS ABOUT BEING PREGNANT
- Everything listed above
- Feeling the baby move when he's stretching or changing positions
- Watching Colby's face when he puts his hand on my belly and the baby moves
- Watching Rob's face when the baby moves when he speaks
- Feeling the baby move when Rob shines a flashlight on my belly
- Hearing the heartbeat at all the doctor's appointments
- Quiet moments in bed when I feel him moving when I rub my belly
In just a few hours we will be down to single digits for the countdown. I can't believe it. I really can't. He's going to be here very soon. HOLY SHIT!
