The girl's got attitude...

Today was a good day!  First of all, we got an extra day off from school due to all the rain we have been getting.  I think my husband said we had around 9-10 inches in all....that is crazy!!!  There is water standing everywhere!  And, hey, with 15 days left, I'll take all the days off that I can get.  Did you just catch that.....15 DAYS LEFT OF SCHOOL!!!!!  Can I hear a big whoo hoo?!?  Hallelujah!  I have loved the kids this year and it's been a great year overall, but I am ready for Miss Harper to get here.

Speaking of my precious little girl, she is such a mess already.  We had to go today for our BPP (ultrasound) and they check for heartbeat, practice breathing, and fluid.  I had been busy, busy all morning cleaning around the house, so I guess she decided to take a little nap as we got to the dr.  Since she wasn't moving around a whole lot, I had to roll onto my side, and sure enough, that woke her up and she went wild!!  ha C:  As we were sitting there looking at her moving all around, our wonderful ultrasound tech pulled out the 3d that thing!  And, what did Miss Harper do.......look and see for yourself!

She crossed her little arms, smirked, and STUCK OUT HER TONGUE!!!  Of course, it was the cutest thing we have ever seen.  She already has a little attitude.  We all 3 just busted out laughing!  I can't tell you enough how much I can not wait to see this little face...sweet cheeks!!!  I love her more than life already and would do anything for her!  Gosh.....could it get any better than this?!?

On top of all the good things, I have been kinda stressed lately.  NO bed yet, NO bedding, NO car seat/ just seems like nothing is going as planned.  And, I am a planner!  I like to get things done ahead of time and to know they are finished and completed correctly.  So, as you can imagine....these things are driving me crazy!  But, instead of getting all bent out of shape, I have got to remember to sit back, relax, breathe, and think of the really important things in life that actually matter.  I don't NEED any of those things right now...if I were to go into labor, I could borrow my niece's car seat!  Everything else will work itself out!  I have a healthy baby girl and I am truly blessed and thankful more than anyone could imagine!  I have to learn to appreciate the small things and let go of things that I have no control over!!!!   I am working on this....pray for me as I work on learning peace and patience!  

However, as I sit here, I realize how fortunate I am and how blessed I am to have such a wonderful life.  For those of you who don't already, hop on over to Kelly's blog and read the poem on her post today! WOW!!  What a tear jerker???  And, how true?  I am blessed beyond what I deserve! 

Hope everyone has a happy week!
