One week since...

I can't believe it's been one week since we went to the hospital. It's really quite a funny story. Matthew and I went out to lunch at On The Border, in hopes spicy food might actually trigger something... maybe that helped. It was a full moon, I remember taking Maggie out back and staring at the moon thinking "let's go now!" Ironically, the nurses at the hospital said that they really are more crowded on full moon nights.
After we bathed the girls and put them to bed, I laid down and realized my contractions were 7 minutes apart, they continued like that for an hour. I went downstairs and told Matthew to maybe get his Accounting homework done (I'd only been telling him ALL week, but did he listen... no!) because we could be in the hospital for the next few days. I started scarfing down my leftovers from lunch, knowing they won't let me eat once I get there. Then, no lie, in between my contractions -now hurting more and closer together- I'm teaching him his Accounting homework so it can be done for Monday night's class. We get it done, my mom comes over... we're off to Mountain View.

Labor all night. It hurt. Out she came. Did I mention that Mountain View's food is SO good!!! WOW, I don't know if I was just THAT hungry or what, but it was fabulous. I ordered massive amounts of food for every meal, and I enjoyed every single bite. And, I really liked that they gave the husbands food too. Although he did enjoy a bacon cheeseburger as I labored around 2 am... he did the same thing with Kacey, I guess now it's tradition :) :) :)


Okay, done reminiscing. I did Kacey's hair today in pigtails. So precious! Needless to say, I had to wrap the band around about 67 times, but it's adorable with those curls coming out.

Not much else on our end. Kadyn sleeps so good, if I could be guaranteed another baby like her, I'd have 9 more.... I'll post Sunday morning pictures tomorrow too. (FYI: I'm reading Midnight Sun... I can't read as fast off of a computer screen, but I just love it and I'm heartbroken that it's going to end abruptly. I just really love being on the Cullen side of things and seeing it all from their views...)

What a beautiful little baby! I am glad you went on your own! I hope that happens with me this time around! Keep your fingers crossed! I can't believe how much hair Kacey has now! Really cute! Midnight Sun is awesome and it is taking me forever to finish it too because of having to read it on the computer!

Wow, I can't believe it's already been a week. Where does the time go? Mountain View's food really is good. I love how they give you that menu (book) and you can order whatever you like! Great piggies, I hope she keeps those curls!

Your good! I don't know If I could do 9 more pregnancies! LOL!

You make me feel so normal... I just finished reading Midnight Sun for the second time last night! Pathetic, I know. I gave my Twilight books to my sis-in-laws to read and since I finished The Host I have been super bored! I hope they finish with my books soon!
