Pregancy Ticker & Other Randomness

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 :).

Just yesterday Nathan took all 3 to grab something at the grocery store- Aly got upset and screamed the whole time having to be carried through the store. Let's feel assured it's the age- funny/sassy :)...Anyway- you are so close! I am SO excited to hear how everything goes, please keep us updated!!!

Still waitin' huh? I have been thinking about you. That shower that your friends threw for you was SO NICE!!! What an AWESOME thing to do for someone. You are a lucky girl! I will keep waiting for news!

Tay is hilarious. I have a feeling your mom might say you were similar when you were a kid. Am I right?! I really wish we still lived close to each other!

I'm interested to see what happens to the ticker! I had one on my blog, but I think I took it off as I approached my due date because I was upset the baby hadn't come yet and didn't want everyone asking me why I didn't get induced. So I'm still not sure!

I love the tantrums in the middle of the store. Sometimes I just have to leave my cart and go home...but that's so frustrating! You'd never know there was a little sass behind that sweet little face!

My friend just had her baby girl 11 days overdue. She had a ticker, too, but it was the floating fetus one. Once it hit 41 weeks, the fetus disappeared entirely and the countdown got all screwy and just showed random numbers.

I'll have to check back in a few days to see what yours has done. :)

I think I have a thousand similar stories about Bri. She is definitely my sweet and sour kid! I take comfort in knowing that Heavenly Father sent strong willed people here right now and that I just need to help her learn to use that will in a good way. Can't wait to see/hear about your baby!

Taylor sure keeps things interesting. As time moves on these littles stories of Taylors individuality will warm your heart. Kisses to you and a sweet girl. Grandma Rhonda
