Happy Birthday to Debbie!
Clay and I just got back from their house and enjoyed the birthday visit. It's a great year for all of us and Debbie because she is turning a great age, but I won't tell, but look at the picture, sorry Debbie, and becoming a grandmother! She can brag about being... eh... see picture... since she looks so good! We also got to see her playroom she did for Lola and all the kids to follow and it's really adorable. Of course she has a reading theme and I think Lola will love it. I even wanted to sit in there and read, which says a lot! :) Too cute Debbie- Happy Birthday again!
Well, with that said, Lola stuck it out for one more day managing to dodge another birthday. So here is the deal... doctor appointment went okay. Not thrilled about it, but if Lola doesn't arrive before Monday, then early Monday morning we will induce. The appointment has been scheduled and the doctor says there is only a 10% chance of needing the induction, yet just in case it is scheduled! There's light at the end of the tunnel and I can see it! Hooray! At the same time if we do go through with the induction and she takes a while still, and is born on that Tuesday, then she will share a birthday with... drum roll... my dad!!! Which he has said all along he didn't mind sharing. I think him and Debbie were the only ones who don't mind sharing... my mom said she didn't mind either, yet Lola coming that early wasn't our hope. Okay Laura- if you are reading this then how long did it take you once you got to the hospital to the time you delivered? You did say you were induced, correct? I hope it doesn't take too long so she is at least born on the 27th and has her own birthday. I know everyone is different in the time it takes, but I was curious how long it did take you! Just a waiting game now to see if she comes on her own or with a nudge. I think my goal this week is to see how tan I can get before Lola arrives!! A lot better than nesting all week. Done enough of that... Haha, I already worked on the tan today! A couple shades darker... well just my front side anyways. Since I can't lay on my tummy, the back of me is pretty white. Oh well.
Clay just grilled a pork chop and is real proud. It's funny how grilling makes a man feel much manlier. And it's funny how they want their wife's approval of their grilling skills or they want us to really brag about their grilling skills. Hahaha... it did look like a pretty good pork chop Clay! Your such a man... grilling and all.
Well, if I go into labor before Monday I will certainly try to at least put up a quick post saying so... who knows... I could careless about this thing at that moment... but for me this is a journal that happens to be online so it might be special for me to make a little memo of it.
