We set a date...

My doctor and I have set a date... the date that I am going to be induced! I love having that end date. I am being induced Nov. 10. I was induced with Dawson Feb. 10 at 7 am but he didn't show up til the 11th so we'll see what happens with this one. My doctor seems confident that this one will come faster but I'm not so sure. I am being induced 5 days before my due date, hopefully this will mean a smaller baby. Even an ounce or two smaller would be nice :) Speaking of which Dawson is now a "big boy", he started nursery (YIPPY) and is sleeping in a big boy bed! We actually started taking Dawson to nursery a few weeks early and would just stay with him (since he wasn't really suppose to be there). While we were in there with him he would just pay no attention to us, while other children would come over and ask us to play or read to them. Dawson would just look over at me sometimes like "what are you still doing here?". So on his first real day we left him and things were wonderful!! Well at least for me, Dave and Dawson, I'm not sure the other children liked it much. Dawson is a bit of a bully and doesn't know how to share yet and he uses being the biggest in the class to his advantage. We were told when we came to pick him up that he made a few kids cry by head butting them. Lovely. At least I know he can hold his own being the new kid in class.
About a month ago we moved the office stuff downstairs and set up Dawson's toddler bed in his new room just so I could start getting things ready in the nursery (Dawsons current room). I wasn't planing on putting Dawson in the new room and bed for a month or two but after his grandma's came over and told him how exciting it was that he now had a new big boy bed I guess it got him all excited too. That night after I got him all ready for bed I told him it was bedtime and he ran into his new room and got himself all tucked into his toddler bed. I told him if he wanted to he could sleep there, expecting him to come out after a few minutes, but he didn't come out until the next morning! So now we are going on week 3 of toddler bed, the only problem is naptime he will go down fine but he comes out after about 10 min. thinking that he had a long enough nap so naptime is still in the crib for now. The only thing that I am not liking about the new bed is that now he is not stuck in the crib until we get him, he can come out at 7:30 (before I normally wake up) and try to open my eye's with his little fingers. Oh well at least it was an easier transition then I thought it would be :)
So there are no pictures in this blog I need to get a bunch off my camera, so I will include some pictures next time.

Wow.. they set a induction date this early.. lucky. My doctor is a stickler, he believes in women going into labor by themselves.. I was induced with Maddox only because the placenta ripped. And Brooklyn my water broke.

Yeah.. for milestone! Big girl/boy beds are fun! Although my daughter and her new sense of freedom was quite frustrating! haha...

I can't believe how big Dawson is getting, I guess that's probably going to be a real blessing with another baby on the way. He seems so much older than Lili in a lot of ways, like talking and not being a scaredy cat of nursery! I can't wait until she'll stay there by herself! We've tried to leave her and see if she'll be fine without us and we don't mind if she cries a little bit...it won't hurt her right? But apparently it's too disturbing for the leaders because they always end up bringing her to us once she reaches the hysterical hiccup stage! Needless to say, we only tried that twice and now I just go to nursery with her or she comes to YW with me!

That's awesome I love knowing when the baby is coming. I had a planned c- section with Norah. It was awesome! I was in my room at 6 and had Norah at 7:43 and back in my room at 8. it was so awesome. i loved having a c-section. I hope everything goes great. having two it so much fun.

Kids understand an amazing amount at early ages, especially if you talk to them a lot. With Jacob I explained that he had to stay in his 'big boy bed' until someone came to get him and he *ALWAYS* did! I know all kids might not do that, but I figured I might as well try while he's still young enough to *want* to obey me, or just think he has no other choice! :)

Aimee,
You don't know me very well yet since I'm the newest EBC of the
Pain Train brotherhood, but I hope you'll consider it an outreach of friendship as I direct your attention to this year's fantasy football message board. There's a battle of epic proportions brewing... your husband might need some wifely backup on this one. Todd's gotten out of control... :)
