Our short conversation:
Mommy: Night, night Gabby.
Gabby: Night, night Mommy.
Mommy: I love you.
Gabby: I love you too babe.
It makes me laugh when she says things to me that Shaun and I say to each other. She always yells through the house, "babe, are you here" to Shaun. Or she says, "Shauny boy" sometimes instead of dad. But my favorite is when he gets home she often says, "hi babe."
I sure love this age! The pros for sure outweigh the cons of it.
Also, how in the heck is Stella 1 month old on Wed? I want to go back to the day I had her and just start all over again!!! It is so bittersweet to have a growing thriving little infant. She has been nothing but pure joy to me.

Enjoy Texture Spray. This stuff is my favorite stuff I've ever tried. I have super fine, flat, hair. The only thing its good for is feeling soft. This stuff makes it have body but not feel like crap in my hair. I'm super picky about my hair feeling gross, this passes the test.
OPI: Makes Men Blush. Great natural nail color. Not too pink or peach.

Today while I was driving, I saw a very similar picture on a billboard that said, "Cure your hangover" I laughed, then almost cried! YIKES. I forgot how awful/weird postpartum baby body looks. Good thing for daily-ish improvement.
On another mad note, Stella's blessing dress is not here yet!!! So much for spending $25 flipping dollars on 2 day shipping (5 days in advance)! Ugh!!! Family pics/baby pics are tomorrow! Crap! My kids are going to have ghetto pics unless I can get to UPS early enough and track down my MIA package(S)!

I love having two beautiful girls now! I could not be happier with my kids!

Stella has been so sweet! I can't believe what an amazing experience it was to have her. It was so relaxing to have a scheduled birth rather than emergency c section. Things went so smooth and she came out just ready to be here. So far she has put up zero fuss! She is so beautiful, I can't believe you can fall in love with more than one baby. It is so fun to have a growing family and see Gabby take so well to her. She loves baby Stella and tries to help with everything. I was so worried about Gabby getting enough attention. Shaun has been an amazing help!! It would not be so smooth if he weren't helping out so much. We could not be more excited. I am having so much fun with her.
I'm so mad this picture was blurry! I had Shaun take a few pictures right before we left the house. They all turned out like this. Oh well, you get the idea.... She is ready to join our family!
As it turns out, I pretty much went into labor when they were monitoring me and giving me fluid. My contrations were about 5-8 min apart so she would have been here soon either way.

Wed. Morning came and went in a hurry. I just got home and things are going great! Stella came out crying with her eyes open to see us! She is so amazing and is doing perfectly!
I have lots of pictures as soon as I can get to them!
Thanks to all our support and visitors!! We love and appreciate you all. Flowers, gifts and visitors made the week even that much more special! Thanks again to you all.

We usually leave the house with no pants on and put them on in parking lots.
She will walk around all day and tell herself, or me; no pee pee on mommies couch, or car or floor or wherever she is at that moment. She peed two times in her pants and felt so sorry and sad. I have no idea why. She would just tell me she was sorry and said, "oh no! pee pee on panties mommy!" Thank goodness we only had one poo poo accident. I threw them right in the trash. She was totally grossed out by the whole thing and wanted me to throw them out. The best part was, when I took off the pooped in undies she said, "no no doggie, don't eat Dabby's poo poo!" She totally remembered our dog (we had for 4 days) would try to lick/eat her poo whenever I changed her diaper! SICK.
Night time is still not good! Now that she won't go in a diaper (I put one on her at night just because) she wakes up super early, 6:30 or 7ish to go potty. At least her diapers are dry. I can't believe it. She also wakes up in the night pretty much every night and WILL NOT go back to sleep unless I take her to bed with me. It's so strange. I'm not even gonna try to enforce anything right now with so much change around the corner. I feel like it will just take so long so I might as well wait it out til I get her a big girl bed because that will be an adjustment all in itself.
Oh, and No Stella yet!
But don't worry, my sisters baby will probably beat mine!! She is already dilated to a 1 1/2. Me? Nothing.

"Dude, What do you think is under her shirt?"
"A bouncy ball?"
"Dude, bouncy balls are NOT that big!"
I interjected politely and said, "I'm having a baby."
They looked at each other and one said, "Gross!"

And, Mark my words, I'm positive this baby will weigh about a pound more than Gab did. At least. I was never this uncomfortable with her. I am to that point where you just don't really sleep anymore. a couple hours here and there at night. I am so excited to get her here and Gabby introduced and used to her..... That last one may take awhile! I held my new nephew tonight at my moms house and Gabby wasn't having it! She dragged the car seat over and told me to "Put him back!" and kept saying, (to the baby) "Hey!, That's my mommy!!!" But she kissed the heck out of him just as long as he wasn't in my arms!
GOOD TIMES AHEAD!!!!!! I can't wait to meet my little angel. Gabby and Stella will ONE day be best friends. I don't think it will take long either.
I'm on track to have a c-section on Dec. 3rd. I don't know if I'll make it til then. I go to the Dr. on Thurs and I'll be asking if I can have it on the 28th but we'll see.

Also, Has anyone ever experienced their toddler to be EXTREMELY Attached? I don't know how to put more emphasis on the word attached!? Gabby is 100% paranoid that when I'm out of sight (meaning even walking to the laundry room without telling her) she FA-LIPS! Nursery and Dance class? FORGET it! On Sunday I had to sit next to her touching her for her not to cry. No strange adult can talk to her, she hates it so bad. I am so confused. She has always been a total mamma's girl but never this bad. She bawls her head off when I leave her with Shaun or even grandma lately. It only lasts a few minutes but She won't let Shaun bathe her, put her to bed, or half the time even hold her? Yes, I love her to pieces and I'm not complaining but She is about to have a major intruder/sister and I'm terrified she'll get 10 times worse if that is possible?! Will she ever be able to go to pre-school and trust that I'll be back?

Stella's room is for the most part done, it's just not decorated yet. But I don't know when that will actually happen. her colors are pretty much purple, blue and pink. I really like how it's all coming together. I have quite a few accessories to get. I also need to hang her picture frames and shelf. Should be pretty cute when it's all done.
This year Halloween was so much fun! Gabby has loved every single thing about this month. She wants to go on a ride almost every night to see scary houses. She always says, "mommy, one more time pweese" and "Where'd scary go?" She has so many little expressions that just make me laugh.
She dressed up as Tinkerbell for her Halloween party in Dance class and then I dressed her and I up as kitty's for the trunk or treat party because she always meow's and licks everyone!
I got lots of comments about having a HUGE litter on the way! Fabulous. I thought black was slimming? Hmm.
The BROWN MARKER is her pitty makeup! Luckily it came right off with a wipe. I don't know how she got her hands on that marker, I thought I'd thrown them all out due to the same incident with a green one!
I love this little diva!! She is growing up so fast.

Today I took Gabby to her first day of "ballet". She totally LOVED it!! I think she was just excited to wear the outfit. Maybe the reason she is still wearing it at 5pm....

Just incase you all haven't already tried Spoon Me, it is fabulous!!! It is the same thing as Pinkberry I'm sure-ish. It is so wonderful, like heaven in a dish with fruit!

As you can tell, gabby did a whole of dancing at my cousins wedding. She danced 80% of the time.
