I have been tagged by my friend Heather. Here are the rules: Type 7 things about yourself that you don't think anyone knows and then choose 7 people to tag at the end. You really have to think for this one!

1. I was born in Fairfield, CA and lived there for the first year of my life.

2. I've always been a HUGE dog lover. However, after getting bit 5 times on my mission I cringe every time I come in contact with any dog...Big or small!

3. I am very picky about my chocolate chip cookies...Most of the time they taste like shortening--blah!--very few are edible to me!

4. I was in a homemade fort, made outside with sheets and sawhorses, with a cute boy named Jeff Sterling. He said he wouldn't let me leave unless I kissed him first. I quickly shoved him aside and crawled out as fast as I could. We were six. :)

5. I am distantly related to Gordon B. Hinckley on my mom's side. He and my mom's dad were second cousins and played with each other when they were kids.

6. My middle name is Lyn-with only one "n"

7. My favorite number is 7. :D

I tag: Jennifer and six others that feel like it. :)

36 weeks already?!

I can't believe I'm already 36 weeks pregnant! This has been the longest pregnancy in the history of the world and now the delivery date seems too soon. On Tuesday I was dialated 1 cm and 75% effaced. I laughed...My first cervical exam with Christian was when I was 37 1/2 weeks along. I was dialated 1 cm and was 75% effaced. Well, that night I went to sleep and awoke at 3 a.m. for my nightly pee and my water broke! HA! Alan and I were joking that my water would break last night. THANK GOODNESS it didn't! At least at 37 1/2 weeks Christian was considered full-term (and boy was he at 8 lbs 5 oz). I don't want a premature baby...I just hope Miles waits to come when my mom is here. We decided to fly her out as a Christmas present to her and us. ;) It'll give me peace of mind knowing she'll be here for the birth to help watch Christian and to help out and just be here so I don't have to be alone while Alan works or is at school (if he comes before the 19th). Oh, I'm so happy she's coming! I kept telling Alan, "I want my mommy!" and he finally caved. ;) She and my dad drove out for a week when Chrstian was born and I loved it. When they left I literally bawled and said, "I want my mom and dad!" (I had the baby blues for 2 weeks, okay.) :) They helped so much. Without them I wouldn't have eaten! :D Thank goodness for family!

Poor, poor me

I need a Wambulance moment...I have been sick for two weeks straight. BAH! A nasty cold turned into an even nastier sinus infection. I'm on antibiotics, which are helping, so hopefully all will be well. I'm tired of sitting on my keaster and watching TV and reading all day. Oh, I also have pink eye. Christian has the cold I had (and Alan had it, too, but got over it sooner) and pink eye, as well. Poor little guy. He's still got plenty of energy, though! HA! He's been begging to go outside I feel so bad! I've just been way too sick!
I had a OB/GYN appointment today. I lost 5 lbs. in the last 2 weeks. HA! There's one bonus of being sick as a dog. :)~ In two weeks my doctor'll check for dialation. Crazy! Christian came the day after my "first cervix check" appointment. HA! We'll see when Miles wants to greet the world. He sure is active; I could swear he's trying to kick his way out. :) Sweet baby...
Christian was a giraffe for Halloween. He picked out the costume himself--he loves giraffes! I dressed up as a safari explorer-person and we went trunk-or-treating in our church's parking lot. It's so nice not to have to walk for miles just to get a few pieces of candy. Alan came with us for 20 min. before heading to work and Christian was just precious. I just love all my boys!
