Nothing Yet...

Yesterday Candy and I had the opportunity to go to "Time Out For Women". It was a great expereince to be able to go and spend some special time with Candy. When I say special I mean giggle and eat contraband treats in the Spokane Opera House. We enjoyed getting to hear from Mary Ellen Edmunds and a few other amazing presenters. For sure the most memorable moment for me was when Hillary Weeks sang a song that made me bawl. I really mean bawl. It's been awhile since I've cried that hard. The song isn't recorded yet, so I will watch for it, and when it is available I want everyone to hear it. We had a wonderful day and I'm so grateful we had the opportunity to go.

Still pregnant! Since my previous post Steven and I have anxiously been experiencing each normal day. I have to say that waiting to go into labor is very exhausting. I don't think that I have ever been so aware of every little movement or moments of uncomfortableness. I had thought I decided months ago that when we got closer to the delivery I wasn't going to have the doctor check to see how things were progressing because I knew that I would not be patient enough to not think about it every waking moment. So, of course, I let them check and now I am dissapointed every new morning I wake up.

If I wasn't so closely involved I might think that this whole experience was very entertaining. It's almost turned into a never-ending "Christmas Eve" sort of feeling where every night we go to bed excited and hoping that something very exciting is going to happen that night. On Tuesday and Wednesday nights we did experience some contractions, but nothing ever consistant enough to go in. One of my favorite side effects is that the waiting has made Steven so excited. I love that he is calling from work to ask if we should go to the hospital, and especially that he wakes up everytime I have to go to the bathroom at night hoping that the moment has come. (Some small amount of revenge for all the times I would wake up and be mad that he was still sleeping so well) So, tomorrow we are going to the doctor to hopefully put an expiration date on the waiting.


In the meantime, we have been walking, and walking. We found a very cool park here in Post Falls called Falls Park. It has lookouts over the waterfalls, and a very cute playground. Here are a few pictures of our last walk.



Wish us luck for tomorrow!

Cassie and Steve,

As good as Time Out for Women was, I prefer Time Out for Men. I will let you know when that comes to town. By the way, we also are counting down the days, hours, and minutes. Love, Dad

Remember Cass. . . when we were not-so-patiently waiting for Lose to arrive. . . and after waiting an extra 7 days over the due date we decided that we were not going to play the waiting game any longer. I so empathize with you right now. . . but it's also part of the excitement for when the moment actually comes. Let us know how the doctor's appointment goes tomorrow. And the pictures of that part are stunning. Just so beautiful. Is it that green there? I'm only a little jealous, as it sprinkled a little bit of snow last night on us. Hmmm. . . that should make an Easter egg hunt pretty interesting if it does it again next weekend. Love you all.

The last week or two is the WORST!! Hopefully that little guy decides to make his entrance soon. I also love the pictures of the park. I wish we had one like that here that I knew of. Love you two (almost three).

So, when I was a week overdue, one of my friends told me to swing on the swings. So I did that then I mowed our lawn and I went to the hospital that night and had Maisey the next day! So, if there are swings at your park, you should try it. If it doesn't work, at least you had fun!!!

P.S. I totally just did what I hated people doing to me... giving advice on how to have my baby faster. So if that annoys you than just ignore my comments! :)

Hey Cassie!
I found your blog through blog-surfing, there's always someone who knows someone who knows some that you know! Anyway, I feel for you! I hope all goes well, and that you find a few moments of comfort before the arrival! So exciting!

I love the description of a bunch of never ending Christmas Eves! That's exactly what it's like. Wishing you luck....
