(a sporadic diary of life with our daughters and updates on my fourth pregnancy)

So, I don't know about you, but I heart craigslist. We buy and sell EVERYTHING via this awesome site. Kitchen Table, check. House we live in, check. Well, I seriously could go on until this baby comes, but really you get the idea. Anywho, we are flying back east to go to my sis-in-law's wedding next month. Bee is the flowergirl and I am the Mother of the flowergirl. That means I won't be fading into the wallpaper. I am pregs with my 4th and I think I look pretty darn good. I am 18 weeks and I am still in my 4's (albeit with the button rubberbanded, but my thighs still fit). Forgive me if I go too far, but I want people to comment on how I "was put on this earth to make babies". The thing is really cute, fancy maternity clothes cost as much as an epidural. Should I go the craigslist route for a dress that I will wear once or should I splurge... it is my final "showing". Dilemmas. You know what, I will peruse the list and if I see something that I really must have, I will get it. Only if it yells my name. I guess that wasn't much of a dilemma at all. Thanks for all your input.

So... we went to Disneyland on Saturday with my Dad, Step-Mom, and 2/3 of my Step-Siblings. The ladies had a blast. AJ was begging to go on ride after ride after ride. I don't remember the last time I did a theme park on a Saturday. Joke. The lines were unreal. I think we went on like 5 rides. We then mosied on over to California Adventure and it was a ghost town. Is it struggling? The highlight of Bee's trip was the HSM "parade". By parade, I mean single float. Whatever, she was stoked. My only issue was with the man standing next to me. He was, for sure, over 40 and knew all the words to every song they sang. Even worse was the fact that he was not accompanied by a single kid. Creepy.
Well, we got back to Dad's and Bee starts the barfing. Everywhere. Dad, we are staying the night. 1 hour later, iBaby adds to the fun. An hour after that, AJ puts in her 2 cents. So, three kids puking their brains out ALL night long as we sleep over on my Dad's couches. AWESOME. The very worst part about this story is that our dear 6 year old is set to go to her very first concert the following day... yes Mommy & Daddy (actually Santa) came through with 2 tickets to Miss Hannah Montana. Um, she didn't quite make it to the concert. I think I was more upset than her. I was begging her to feel better. Finally like an hour before showtime, I took her temp and felt so horrible for pressuring her (102). I am a bad mom. Boo.

So our little family unit likes to periodically spend a night or two in local hotels, just to spice up the humdrum times. It's not too hard considering we live in a 'burb of a major tourist destination. Daddy goes to the sports bar, Mommy and the Ladies order movies and ice cream and jump on beds. At night we meet up for dinner and then retreat to our room. I think we are going to do that tomorrow. Why not? Way Cool Wednesday! I might even hit up the spa. That sounds awesome. The only ish is that iBaby doesn't do well sleeping when everyone else is up. The particular hotel we like to frequent has gimungous bathrooms. Is it horrible to wheel the crib in the loo? It's cool.... Right?

Well, my ultrasound was fun. The tech thought I was 10 weeks, so she tried to do a vaginal ultrasound. That didn't work out so well. When she finally did the belly one, I got to see my beautiful question mark. She refused to speculate on the sex of number 4, but I think I saw some parts that I didn't see on numbers 1-3. Her only comment regarding gender fueled my fire. She said that sometimes girly bits are swollen and look like boy bits. None of my girls ever looked like that. It's cool either way. I know how to do girls, but having a junior would be cool. Numbers 1-3 don't know that I am in a family way, yet. No-one does. It will make it more fun when we go to our parents within the next few weeks. I really am not showing. They will all think I've had one too many tacos. Hah!
Today, I go in for my 1st ultrasound. I'm not sure why it is now... why not wait 2-3 weeks. Then I can see the sex. Oh well. My Dr. is a very popular one man show. I have been through the baby thing 3 times already. I am not sitting on pins and needles.
Our girls are 6, 2, and 1. The 6 year old will from this post forward be known as Bee. The 2 year old is AJ and the baby is iBaby. We live on the sunny side of our US of A. In the last few years we have lived East, South, West, Desert, Humid, Beach, Snow, City, Suburb, Small Town. I'm not big on those folks who list their every detail in their blogs. People, it's not that hard to become obsessive over some adorably perfect family and track them down. People are crazies.
I'll talk to you later.
