much to catch up on

Well, let's see....... BAB is doing sign language like its her job. Her 'vocabulary' consists of eat, more, all done, drink, help, and please. Drink and please are the newest. When she gets the hang of those we will do thank you. She is doing really well with them! When she gets mad because she can't do something (most of the time) she will sign help instead of screaming. I enjoy this much better! She also says some form of each word as well. Although you would have to have the BAB translation bible to understand this.

Her eating issues are going much better. I have seen much improvement. On Thanksgiving she did very well. I was impressed. She didn't even throw a fit when we were all done. Although I'm sure it helped that she saw her little cousins playing with out her!

Still no word on how the termination is going. I'm not surprised. I'm sure the social worker is doing everything she can. Everything will happen when it needs to. I'm not stressing at all.

I am now 34 weeks pregnant! YAY! Everything is going good. I have been getting leg cramps at night and a little heartburn. Nothing I can really complain about though. I am a little uncomfortable, but nothing unmanageable......yet! Christmas is a little daunting knowing that I will be very pregnant for all the celebrations. But I will be fine. I can only do what I can and if some people don't agree then that is their problem. (not that I am anticipating anybody having a problem)

I will leave you with this-

Pilot, my brother in law and WEW went to the planetarium to look at stars. It was a Christmas program for kids. He was very nervous when they got in the seats and had to hold both of their hands. When all was said and done they walked out of the building and WEW says just as if this was normal-
"Oh, we are back on the ground."
He thought they were in a space ship!!!!! He is so cute!

Cribs, baby clothes and heartburn! OH MY!

Well, my mom and sister came out today and we overhauled the rooms. We moved BAB's stuff over to the big room and the new baby's stuff into the nursery. Although BAB is still in the nursery and the new baby hasn't even been born yet! We don 't have a heat register in the big room yet, so we are keeping BAB in the nursery until we can get heat for her. There is still a few things we have to do, but the rooms are mostly done. Since I only have 6 and a half weeks left until my due date I figured that I better get it done. I still have to move the bassinet and changing table into my room. That shouldn't be a problem since it is all cleared out. In fact I may do that tonight! OK maybe not.....

Also I have really bad heartburn from bending over all day!

Things are moving along fast now...

BAB's social worker came by today for her monthly visit. I can not discuss alot of what was said as it is confidential. BUT I can say that we will most definitely be able to adopt BAB. And we may be able to be adopted her a little bit sooner then before. The next court date has also been moved up to the middle of Dec. instead of the beginning Jan.

Sheila the valliant defender

So this morning I was watching out the window and saw 2 big dogs being walked by their elderly owner. I knew Sheila was out (she has an invisible fence) so I went to the front door to check it out. Their dog was off his leash in my yard attacking my dog. I wasn't really afraid of my dog getting hurt. I was actually more afraid for the other dog. Sheila was in fact a little bigger. So I call for Sheila and she starts coming. The owner gets the dog and puts the collar back on. Then the dog slips out again and attacks my dog again! So the owner is glaring mad at Sheila for some reason so being the polite neighborly type I say 'sorry' and get Sheila in the house. I get a glare and a very angry huff from the guy. I was like ok, mister, your dog was the one in my yard! My dog was being attacked not yours! Ornery old fromp! I hate living in town!

In other news, I had a dream about my Sammy last night. I miss her so much. She was the perfect dog. I know everybody has the 'perfect' dog, but she was MY perfect dog. Time will heal I suppose.

I'm firing myself

So this weekend was full of tragedy and mishaps. As I was driving BAB to day care Tuesday I said outloud to no one in particular that I was going to just fire myself. And yes, it was that bad.

First off, one of my very good friends went to her 20 week ultrasound and found out her baby had died. I was beside myself for her. How terrible to find out that way. It scared the crap out of me for sure. I'm here for you if you are reading this, very good friend.

Then on Sunday I dropped my new phone in the TOILET! I mean seriously! I had to put my hand in the TOILET to get my phone!!!!! UGHHHHH!!!! It stopped working. Then that night it would turn on, but I couldn't push any buttons and I couldn't hear the other person talking. BUT the next day it started working alright. Thank God!

THEN on Monday I stopped at my grocery store to pick up a few items I needed. I was all alone. No BAB to distract me.... I left my wallet in the cart in the parking lot. The store was less then helpful. I went back to try and find it and they were even less helpful. I was not happy and intend to make a complaint. Anyways, so my dad and I searched the whole parkinglot, the trash cans, every cart we could find to no avail. I was so mad at my self! Not only was there ALOT of money in my wallet, but my licences, credit cards, my insurance card, BAB'a insurance card, and alot of information in general! My social security card was not in there though so that was good. So I had to cancel my credit card, my debit card, get a new driver's license (which ccost me 10 bucks!!!!), and not to mention all that money!!!!!! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!

Then Pilot decided that he is going to farm (all his extended family are farmers) all day on the days he has off. So I have been with BAB for about 2 weeks straight without much of a break. We are getting on each others nerves. I woke up Tuesday morning at 5am with BAB because that is when she thought she should be up..... grrrrr..... She has started to be opstinent. That is she is not throwing fits all the time she just decided that she isn't going to do something and she will sit on the floor and eventually just lay down. No crying nothing. She will just decid that she is done. Also she will not help put her coat on anymore which is already hard to begin with. SO now I am stuffing a very limp 18 month old into a coat. Its not fun. I barely made it out of the house with out it coming to drastic measures.

So I quit. And thats that.
