Birthday, and lack of a birth.

Well y'all - I'm still pregnant.  That's right - no Baby Girl yet.  I was REALLY hoping she would come over the weekend so that we wouldn't have to deal with the chaos of finding rides to school, and all the other weekday activities my other kids are involved in.

I have had a few contractions off and on, but I'm pretty sure they are still just Braxton Hicks.  They go away if I move around, and are not consistent AT ALL.  Sigh...my very clever friend MiMi suggested that her name should be Patience, after putting us all through this!  I know I shouldn't complain, her due date was only 2 days ago...but we are all ready to meet her!

Since she still hasn't made an appearance, it's not too late to enter my Baby Girl Poll.  Even if you already entered, since everybody's guesses on date have already passed, you are welcome to take another shot at it!
I have my next doctor's appointment on Thursday if she hasn't come yet, and at that time he will schedule and induction - so take you best guess!

In other news, my sweet Pixie celebrated her 10th birthday yesterday.  I cannot believe she is 10!  It hurts my heart a little that she is growing up so fast.






The time has flown by way too quickly and I feel like it's all just passing me by!  I wish there was a way for me to slow it down so I could have more time to appreciate each moment and memory.

Pixie is growing into a lovely young woman, and I could not be more proud of who she is becoming.  She excels in school and loves learning.  She also loves being creative.  Her newest interest is making creations out of  "designer" duct tape.  She got a bunch of rolls for her birthday and has been happily creating away.  She has made suspenders, a really cute rose pen, Barbie clothes - just to name a few.

She loves playing the piano and is ALWAYS practicing.  I keep trying to remind myself that this is a good thing.  She literally cannot walk past the piano without pausing to play a few bars.  Again, I remind myself, this is NOT annoying.  Her dedication is a good thing, right?

Our life has never been the same since she joined our family 10 years ago, and I cannot even begin to imagine our family without her.  I'm so grateful that Heavenly Father trusted me to be her Mom.  I'm not the best at it, by any stretch of the imagination, but I know there is no one that could love her more than I do.

Massive Happy Birthday to Pixie, she's adorable and it's awesome that she's in double figures now though scary I guess, time must have gone by quickly. Hopefully the new arrival comes very soon, it's going to be all worth it when she arrives, best of luck Xazmin.

Happy Happy Birthday Pixie. Such a sweet girl, you definitely are one lucky mama.

Well not so lucky when it comes to gettin that new baby out though... LOL.

I think that sweet baby girl is coming really really soon - in the next 15 hours. Yup, that is my guess. Hope it's right for your sake :)

Aggh I would be soooo impatient if I were you! But what else can you do but wait.....my brother took his sweet time with my Mom (she says 2 weeks, but not sure if that's true) and he's been late for everything every since! Let's hope that's not in your future! LOL

My new guess for the date is February 6th at 8:12 am 8 lbs. 6 oz, 21 inches....

I am a little new here, and could not resist putting in my two cents worth about waiting around for babies. I had to wait nearly three weeks for child #4 for finally decide he was ready! (I secretly loved it though, since I am sick for the first 8 months, and the feel great in the last month...It is the only time I can really enjoy being pregnant!) Hope you are holding her already!
