Does anyone know what happens to the pregnancy ticker when you go past your estimated due date? I am asking because I have no clue. In this awful day and age where woman literally sign up to have their babies (I am sorry- that is such a backwards and wrong concept to me but that is for another blog), I am not sure I've ever seen a blog ticker go past a due date! I guess we shall see in a few days...I am 99.9% confident that this baby isn't budging any time soon. I must have created an exceptional hide out in there this time around! Way to go me!
Carter wants the baby to come soon so he can start eating all of the "treat" waffles that are in the freezer. Last week he and I made some chocolate chip waffles for when I don't feel like making meals and he's been checking the freezer at least once a day to make sure they are still there. I sure hope he gets to start eating them soon!
Taylor has been really exhausting these days. She is waking up at night and throwing the worst temper tantrums during the day. Here is a good story for you all...the other day we were at a favorite thrift store and she demanded I carry her through the store. Well, if I had more energy and didn't have a massive 5th appendage being carried on the front of me, sure I would have loved to carry her through the store. But since she had already declined riding in the stroller and the store doesn't have shopping carts, she was stuck walking....after 5 minutes of whining to be held, she ran off (the store is pretty small so I knew right where she was-no worries), laid down on her back like she was making snow angels and proceeded to yell at the top of her lungs "go way" over and over again. Lovely.
Another Tay story....on Saturday we had beautiful weather and the kids played out side for a few hours but alas it was finally time to come in to eat. I was finishing up dinner when I hear hysterical screaming coming up the stairs. It was Taylor. Drew was carrying her and I thought she must have cracked her head open or something equally painful- it was THAT type of crying. But no blood was to be found, she was just mad that she had to come inside. Carter affectionately calls her "sassy girl" and I would have to agree with him. But with each toddler tantrum comes at least five moments of sweetness from her. And like with Carter, I actually really like the 2 year old phase. 2 year olds are just hilarious! I should probably start writing up some of the funny things she does :).
