Roxy Simone

Roxy Simone Dunmire arrived on Monday, Nov. 24th at 9:23am. She weighed 8lbs 11oz and was 19.5 in. She is doing great. She's nursing pretty well. Big brother Chase loves her and is adjusting well. I'll quit typing now and give you all what you really want: PICTURES!

Monday, Monday, Monday!

I cannot believe Monday is 4 days away! Then, I'll finally have my body back to myself! Oh yeah, and a new little baby in my arms. Right now, I'm washing baby clothes so I can decide what to dress Roxy in for the trip home. Then, I have to pack a bag for Chase. He's going to be away from me for 5 nights! I'm going to miss him so so so so much! I'll probably cry. At least he'll be getting spoiled with my parents. Then I need to decide what I need to pack. I despise packing.
I'm so so so excited that Twilight comes out at midnight! I've got my ticket and I'll be in line at 1030pm! Hope to see some of you there!

37 weeks.

Time has flown, as has November. I had my 37 week OB appt this morning, and it was fast and boring. I gave my urine sample as usual (no protein like last time, whew!) then I was promptly weighed. I've lost weight (which is the norm for me) and the doc said that she was proud (yeah, me too, Doc!). Then we proceeded to the exam room where the medical assistant took my blood pressure (and didn't tell me what it was, which irks me) and listen to Roxy's heart. This took a few minutes. You see, Roxy doesn't like to be poked and prodded, so she moves away. She finally laid still for a moment and her heart rate was 139. Then the medical assistant told me that the doc would be in momentarily. While waiting, I browsed a Pottery Barn catalogue, which I only dream to be able to purchase from (PB is tres expensive!). The doc came in, asked me how I was feeling, and I told her that I had been having a lot of contractions. She said that if I feel as if I'm going into labor to just go to the hospital and they'll check me. If I'm dilated at all, they'll just do the c-section. So, I guess Roxy could be here any day now, but at the most 12 days.

**as you can ascertain from this blog entry, my OB appointments are now very boring. The upside is that I only have one left!**

Good Times in America!

I'm so happy that our nation has finally reached a point where we can look past the color of a persons skin and look inward to their heart. I'm so proud that my children will live in a nation where they can be anything that they want, including President.
Congrats to President Elect Barrack Obama!
Also, thank you Sen. John McCain for your service and undying loyalty to America.
His concession speech was amazing (minus the boos- what was that about?) and hopefully he'll get a cabinet position!

In other news, only 3 weeks left! I'm so done with this pregnancy and I can't wait to see baby Roxy and enjoy my time with my children!
