Midwife Appointment #2

Well, I finally saw my friend and midwife's assistant, Christy, today. My blood pressure is normal. The baby is somewhat posterior. She had to pause a few times in checking his position because I kept having contractions. He is off to my left side so I get to go on www.spinningbabies.com to find some exercises to help him turn around. She also quickly found the heart beat (thank God!) and let me listen. I think she said it was 140 something. I also got a list of a few others things to have handy for the birth, like trash bags, shower curtains and old towels.

Here's hoping we'll all see the new baby soon!

Merry Christmas!

We hope your Christmas is centered on Christ, not presents, full of family joy, not disputes, and that those you love are near!

Merry Christmas!

A Baby Changes Everything



Teenage girl, much too young
Unprepared for what’s to come
A baby changes everything
Not a ring
On her hand
All her dreams and all her plans
A baby changes everything
A baby changes everything
The man she loves she’s never touched
How will she keep his trust
A baby changes everything
A baby changes everything
And she cries ouuh she cries
Ouuuaah

She has to leave go far away
Heaven knows she can’t stay
A baby changes everything
She can feel it’s coming soon
There’s no place, there’s no room
A baby changes everything
A baby changes everything
And she cries
And she cries
Ouuh she cries

Shepherds all (Shepherds all) gather ’round (they gather ’round)
Up above the star shines down
A baby changes everything
Choir of angels say
Glory to the newborn king
A baby changes everything
A baby changes everything
Everything, everything, everything
Hallelujah (Hallelujah)
Hallelujah (Hallelujah)
Hallelujah (Hallelujah)
Hallelujah (Hallelujah)
My whole life is turned around
I was lost and now I’m found
A baby changes everything
A baby changes everything

Tweet Tweet!

So, I ordered some head pieces from my friend's site that I mentioned, TrueBirds, and they're here! I was seriously having dreams about them prior to receiving them...which proves I have no life without a car.

Anyway! Here are some shots of a couple of them. When I had made my order I mentioned that I wasn't sure which would be best on Karrots. Big Red was thinking of the Simply Chic Pixie Pink because she couldn't destroy it as easily. I was thinking something red or purple. Here's what my friend Heather came up with:



I also got one for my neice. As all of the Baby Bird collection is adorable, it took me forever to decide. We ended up getting the Gold Kicking Line, which will look great in her blonde hair and go with most things!



Another item I ordered was the Peacock Feathered Friend. They're not linked for sale yet, but Heather had mentioned that if we wanted something not linked to simply ask and she'd see what she could do. I was a little nervous about getting it because I'm not THAT creative with hairstyles. BUT, I found ONE way to wear it last night:



It's basically a messy bun with it clipped to the side. Anyone have any other ideas on how to wear it?
