right this moment kate is [loudly] singing her abc's instead of napping

things that make me happy:

new chocolate-chocolate donettes. 
we've already eaten 3 bags this week.
probably shouldn't admit that.

lots of hot-air balloon sightings in yuma.
and never-ending blue skies.

yuma sunsets/sunrises are rumored to be some of the best.
wish pictures could capture the beauty b/c they really are amazing.

so many things to love:
1. my appetite for cheeseburgers is back.
2. we have an 'in n out' here.
3. we're eating outside!
4. jank's wearing an 'in n out' shirt while eating @ 'in n out'= awesomeness

this little girl makes me so very happy.
wish i could bottle her sweetness and share with everyone.
plus, her hair is all sorts of out of control lately and i've given up.
the mullet wins this round.

the dollar isle @ the bullseye.
animals that make noises...
a galvanized bucket for diapers...
chip clips...
done and done.

painting the crib has allowed me time to sit and think.
it's been therapeutic for me and allowed me time to analyze my pregnancy anxiety attacks.
i've never really had anxiety attacks before but by-golly am i having them this month.
palpitations and racing thoughts don't make for a good time.

i've analyzed it down to a few issues--
1. our family is in a really good place right now and as wanted and loved as this new babe is, i just don't want to rock the boat.
2. labor. labor. labor. delivery. delivery. delivery. ugh! enough said.

finally[!] getting christmas decor put away.
kate had to hug and kiss and say goodbye to every single ornament.
kinda annoying, mostly awesome.

things that make me grumpy

being told by my OB that i no longer have a due date.
i now have a 'due range' spanning from feb 8 through feb 18.
baby girl is doing great-
she's just consistently measuring 1.5-2 weeks behind schedule and since i never had a period to calculate an exact due date from... i now have a 'due range'. bleh.

kinda shocked that i didn't cry at all yesterday after being dealt that blow.
although i did say the f-word and threw the fly-swatter at the dryer.
jank got after me for that one-
but aren't i a teensy bit justified??
10 days were just added to this waiting game.
i like black and white. and timelines. and countdowns. and finality.
so now what do i do?

i'm totally making a yellow cake with chocolate frosting.
