Zach is in charge of the stockings every year and he does such a good job. He filled it with mini lalaloopsy's, zoobles, teeny stuffed animals, candy, a little flower pot that you add water to and grow a flower, cute little stuff like that. What a good girl dad!
But Kylie, doesn't wake up so easily. A lot of the time I go in to get her up and she will say, "I till sleeping."
I love having a calm Christmas morning at home. We open gifts, I make breakfast and the kids play with their new stuff until it's time to get ready to go to my family Christmas in the afternoon.

Today I had an appointment with Dr. Z. I had mentally prepared myself for the group B strep test even though I had no idea if I would get it this time or next time. I got called back pretty quick since I was the only soul in the waiting room on Christmas Eve Eve. First up: Weigh in. Normally I am pleased with my weight, but this time I was not. I am up to 150. I just can not control my weight at the end of pregnancy, it comes flying on. When I take off my shoes and jeans my legs and feet are so puffy that I have lines and creases all over the place. My face is starting to get pretty puffy too. It's just not a good feeling even though you know most of it is baby and water weight.

I got a call the other day from the Baylor hospital wanting to collect their $10,000 for my labor and delivery. I've already paid my doctor thousands (again, thank God for my business) and will still owe an anesthesiologist and whatever other bills come flowing in when the baby is born. But the nice people at Baylor would only make me pay around $7,000 if I pay cash before delivery. Which is all fine and good and totally understandable, but I remember Harris only being like $4,500 or $5,000. We gave Harris a call and yes, they are way cheaper. So baby 3 will be born at the same place baby 1 and 2 were born, which I loved and had no problem with, but I was really excited about delivering at the new, fancy, beautiful Baylor that I have heard so many great things about.

It's all happening so fast! And I love it! Kylie in a big girl bed and being fully potty trained all within a couple of weeks of each other. All without me even trying or necessarily wanting these changes quite yet. She's just growing up and wanting to be independent and it makes my life a little better. I have 4 or 5 whole weeks of having no kids in diapers! That isn't much, but I was expecting to have 2 in diapers again for a couple of months. Kylie is very proud of herself, as she should be. Blake still gives her big hugs when she goes on the potty and they like to ask for candy to celebrate. That was ok for the first few days, but now, weeks later, is not at all necessary. But I guess they like to ask anyway.

She was a little nervous to get started, but was chatting away as soon as she got up there. He was so nice and not at all threatening for a sensitive child. However, the photographer was ridiculous. Of course I would be picky about children photographers, but she was banging this crazy loud hand clapper to get the kids to look at the camera and it just wasn't working too well, not a technique I would use. Babies were crying, kids were looking, but not with happy faces, just a bad plan. She did only have about half of her teeth and obviously wasn't trying to make a career out of it though, she was just trying to get a decent shot and hurry along.

I really loved all the texture and couldn't find anything else like it for cheaper. So then yesterday I emailed my decorator and asked her opinion if I should get an iron headboard or an upholstered one. I never heard back and I just couldn't wait so upholstered it is.

This is where I am right now. The pregnancy is seriously so uncomfortable, I feel like the baby is huge. I feel movement up in my ribs and practically all the way to the top of my thighs. Last night he/she almost kicked the ipad right off my tummy. The belly is not keeping me from sleeping, but pregnancy insomnia is. I play around on my phone or the ipad into the wee hours and then wake up at like 5:30 and have a hard time falling back to sleep. Right now most of my ipad and phone web searches are centered around Kylie's big girl room. She is potty trained now and really excited about getting a big girl bed. She tells me she is too big for her crib and is ready to make that transition. All of these transitions, (potty training, big girl room) were supposed to wait until after the baby was born, but Kylie can be a woman on a mission and she decided to take charge of her own potty training and speed up the room process.

Those are just a few favs, they are all great and once I get all these holiday orders filled and can close that door, I will make a cute little album and maybe get a big one for my master bathroom.
