Baby Hayden

The money shot!

Sweet profile

I had my ultrasound today and everything is perfect with baby Hayden (yes that's her name unless I change my mind ;) It is confirmed that she is really a girl yeah! She has everything she is suppose to and it's all in the right place. She is 9 ounces right now and is measuring right on for her age. The poor ultrasound tech though because she was moving all over the place and made it difficult to get all the pictures she needed. I am so relieved that everything is OK with her. My risk of downs syndrome is now down to 1 and 15,000. Thanks Dr. Freeman for taking care of us! Now she just needs to grow and stay in there until at least 38 weeks!

"I just wanted to make you laugh"

So I was downstairs watching tv and Sydney was upstairs doing the same. Or so I thought! She came downstairs with a huge goofy grin on her face. She of course got in trouble for coloring all over her body! She looked at me with eyes full of tears and said "But momma, I just wanted to make you laugh". I of course then felt bad for yelling at her and it really was pretty funny. So a few hugs and kisses later everything was right in the world again. I just had to take some pictures of her. She also promised to only color on paper from now on.

Well I did it, I actually survived Sydney's first day of preschool and I am lonely! My house is so quiet right now. I know I will learn to appreciate having time to myself but right now I really miss her! We got up at 6:00, ate breakfast, got all dolled up and off we went. Sydney was soooooo excited to go to real preschool. It was so surreal going to a school and dropping off my kid. Weird! She asked my as we were walking through the parking lot if I was going to cry. She told me that she didn't want me to cry. I said I would try really hard not to but if I did they were going to be happy tears for her. She was ok after that. We found her classroom and she ditched me immediately to play with the kids. I stayed for about 30 minutes (obviously for my sake not hers). My little social butterfly was sitting in circle time when I blew her a kiss and left. I got a little misty as I was walking away from her but I think I did pretty good. I really am excited for her, she is going to learn so much and have so much fun. But I feel like this is the beginning of me not being the center of her universe and I know I am not ready for that! Great, now I really am crying. Oh well I almost made it.
