Baby Update and more...

So I had an appointment with my doctor yesterday and I got some good news. I'm dilated to 2 cm and was told that I could go into labor any day now! Yippee! I've been having contractions but they are irregular and they always stop. I've been told that I can't go into labor until Sunday or later because my mom comes up late Saturday night so she will be here to help with the girls. 

Now for the "more" part. It has been a rough couple of days around here...I think Emily has given up her naps! Isn't she a little too young for this? She's not even 2 yet! It all started on Tuesday when my good friend and her son came over to visit. I thought she was just too excited to sleep because she could hear us downstairs. No big deal, I just gave up and brought her down to play. Well, as the days passed, with no one here visiting, she refused to fall asleep. She will go into her room (with the gate at the door since she's in the toddler bed now) and play somewhat quietly, but she won't get in her bed to sleep anymore. The reason why it has been rough, is because I'm now at the point where I need a nap everyday, at least for an hour. I don't feel very comfortable falling asleep, even if it's a light sleep, while Emily is up. So, if you see me out and about, you'll know why I'm staring into space glassy-eyed. 

I've been holding fast to a scripture verse that my friend Brooke posted on her blog a few days ago. It's Philippians 4:13: Whatever I have, wherever I am, I can make it through anything in the One who make me who I am.

Don't give up hope about the naps. Both of my kids went through a time where they didn't nap for a few weeks. I just kept putting them down and after a few tense and tiring weeks, they started to nap again. Josh is going through one of those spells now, and I am praying that this is not the end of the naps. I was so looking forward to him napping while she is in school...I am keeping my fingers crossed! Good Luck! Keep us posted about when Zachary arrives!
