How embarrassing to go to the hospital for the second time for them to only send you home!!! Lat Sunday a week ago we went to the hospital and, contractions about 3-5 minutes but no change. The nurse pretty much told us, see you in a few hours. Then I am crapping all day yesterday and start having contractions around 3 or 4 and was not going in unless they continued or got worse. So finally at 11 last night we had been timing them every 3 minutes apart and decided to go in because they were worse than last time and close together. We get there, and are hooked up to the monitor and after feeling this for 5 hours still no change, but she wanted me to wait an hour to re-check and see if there was anything. She came back and said you are having some really good contractions, lets check and see. Of course no change. So again we went home. This time she did give me a sleeping pill that would either keep the contractions going or make them stop, but wither way she said it would relax my body, so the babies heart rate wouldn't keep going up! So i was still feeling some contractions after taking the pill but after an hour or so I was out. i woke up a few times with some pain but nothing terrible. So i guess it stopped them because here I am Sunday afternoon with no contractions and no baby. Not the end of the world because I go in tomorrow night for an induction just really frustrating because with Lincoln i felt the contractions the same maybe even no as bad and i was ready. I have no idea what this means, other than i have no idea what my body is doing. Anyone knows please let me know, otherwise the hospital staff is going to start calling me by name, every time I go in there.

It was a little weird being with such a small group, but was tons of fun! We loved every minute of it and it was fun to watch Lincoln. Santa brought him one of those Little Tike's Basketball Hoops and he loved it! For some reason he has been way into hoops! When dad took him to Academy the other day he freaked out when they went into the hoop isle. He came downstairs and kept saying "oop" and "dunk it"! It was fun to watch him want to tear off the wrapping paper and watch his face as he anticipated what it would be! My parents and the Hodsons gave us our double stroller that we are so excited about and my parents got us our bassinet and a beautiful picture of the Houston temple!! It was great to be with family, and now that the festivities are all over we just wait for the little one to get here!

So I have been dilated for 2 weeks now at a 1... surprise surprise, this is what I did last time with Lincoln!! Sunday afternoon after our nap I woke up having some contractions! They lasted from about 3 till about 9 every 3 minutes, so we thought it was time to go in. We went in and the nurse came to check after an hour and there was no progress, so they sent me home. Before we left the nurse told us the contractions were getting worse and on top of each other and that she would probably see us in the middle of the night or tomorrow morning, that i was in early labor and it would just be more comfortable for me at home. So expecting that's what would happen we went home, and I had contractions all through the night and then a little in the morning. I was not about to go back into the hospital unless I was dying, but it never got that way. Just consistent, but never got terrible. So Tuesday night here I am still pregnant!! So you can guess the contractions slowed down and then pretty much stopped. Again last night I was getting contractions, but nothing came from it. Just big and ready to be done, so since this whole pregnancy has not been planned and thrown us for a few loops we can only except our little Trey to be ready to come Christmas morning!!!

Yes this is Texas!! Of course its snows the year we move down here, to get away from the snow! Josh says there is no reason for us to bare the extreme heat in August if we still get snow in December. It is still better than what we came from, but maybe would of been a little cooler if we didn't just come from tons of snow! Mom was wondering why we only took 2 pictures, and i had to remind her its not an anomaly for us to see snow!! The best part is the whole city shut down! The stores closed early because it was not safe for the employees driving, the airports, the schools and i don't even think the snow ever stuck to the concrete.

Lincoln was so happy, playing with Toby and in his ball pit! He thinks Toby is chasing him and thinks its so funny! I was glad I was able to catch some of it on video because he normally will stop what he is doing once I pull out the camera.

Yes, of course we had to celebrate there 1st birthdays together! If they decide to come on the same day then we get to have there parties together! We had a hard time finding a theme we liked for a boy and a girl, and this one turned out so cute!!! Everything was "little". Marian seemed to like the cake a lot more than Lincoln, she really got into it. Lincoln got sad once everyone started singing, but once his daddy came and sat with him he was fine!! Thanks to everyone who helped and was able to make it, we had so much fun!
