On a happier note...she has been saying DaDaDaDa all weekend. I told Michael she was just making a sound, though! :D I mean, c'mon - isn't she supposed to say MaMa first?? After all I am the one that carried and delivered her and got up in the middle of the night for feeding and changes all the stinky diapers and all that stuff! Why does daddy get to be said first!?!? Oh, maybe b/c when he's around they are always playing!!! Ha ha! Okay...so do I sound a little jealous? Well...maybe a little bit! ;)

Book 7 unlike the previous 6 cannot stand on its own though. Rowling wrote the first 6 in such a way to give enough information for you to know what's going on if you hadn't read the others, but not enough to bore you if you already read them all. Book 7, though makes reference to so many events from the previous 6 books that you really will miss out on quite a bit if you don't read the first books.
I still need to buy books 1 and 2 in hardback - I have all the others in hardback, but the first two I only have in paperback. I gave those to my father to start reading - let's see if he loves them as much as I do! I think I want to buy the DVDs as well. I haven't seen the newest out in the theater yet, though. I will eventually. I think now that the books are done I might go back and start reading them from #1 again after I finish school. I gave my father the set of C. S. Lewis books a couple years ago for Christmas and he gave me those to read. I think I'll see if I can get a couple of those read before school starts for the fall semester.
Okay...so now on to my thoughts on the book -

Please keep Bob & Carol in your prayers as well as all the doctors and nurses that are taking care of Bob.

In 2005 I lost like 30+ pounds! I was so proud of myself...then in 2006 I got pregnant & had a baby and well didn't look like I did in 2005 anymore sadly! Emma is about to be 8 months old, though so I can't very well use the excuse that I just had a baby as to why I can't fit into my skinny jeans anymore! They are in my closet just glaring at me...and by the end of the year I plan to be back in them! I am being very smart, though and counting calories again and making healthy choices and I know it's going to take a while, but they say the longer it takes to come off the longer it stays off...right??? I have been doing this now for a couple weeks and I think I have lost not quite 10 pounds. I haven't been good about weighing on a regular schedule, but I've noticed a difference in how my clothes fit. Now a friend at work is trying to lose with me so every Thursday we go downstairs and weigh...whoever loses the most gets a fat free yogurt courtesy of the other!! Ha ha!
This was me in 2005 and my goal is to get back to this size...I can still wear that shirt, but it doesn't look as cute as it does in this picture!

By the end of the shower she was wiped out! Even to the point that while feeding her she started falling asleep in the high chair. She would take a bite of dinner and then her eyes would shut and her head would fall over...then she would jump up and open her eyes and take another bite...then eyes right back shut and head over...and then finally at one point she just opened her mouth for another bite, but didn't even open her eyes! She was eating in her sleep!! At that point it was time to quit eating and head out!! It was hysterical, though!!
Jamie got a lot of nice things and some very cute outfits! Miss Katelynn will have a full wardrobe, that's for sure!!!
Afterwards, Emma and I headed over to Elaine's house to visit with her and Kenny. We hung out there and played for a while and then went to dinner - where we sat and visited for another couple hours! It was a great visit!! Emma was so very sleepy though by the time we headed home and started really fighting sleep...so there was some crying in her car seat for a little bit before she eventually passed out for the evening. When I got home she didn't even open her eyes when I pulled her out of her car seat and put her down in her crib.
I thought I would just come home and crash, but after emptying the jeep, getting her into bed, putting things up, and then changing clothes I was wide awake - so here I am watching Barber Shop 2 and playing on the internet!! That's how it is I guess!!!
Michael is at a bachelor party tonight and I figured that I would be in bed long before he got home, but if I don't get sleepy soon (and I feel so wide awake at the moment) I might just still be up when he gets in!

This is one of my favorite pics from the last time we went to Broaddus...I was going through my pics tonight and thought I would post this one.
Daddy came home today from Egypt and brought me a new camera from a friend...well, it's new to me. I am excited about trying it out. I've called around and found a camera store nearby that sells the film for medium format cameras. I'll have to stop by tomorrow and pick some up so I can try it out!! How exciting!!!
