I was given 12 tiny tomato plants a few months ago and I planted them all in one pot....this round pot. I learned that the pot was way too small, so Mike had some planters built for me. So I ended up with 2 plants in this round pot. See how tall they are now!?

We finally got a ripe tomato! Hannah was so excited and couldn't wait to eat it!

Here is Hannah in front of our
"farm". I was told that I had too many
plants in those planters, but so far we've picked 3 tomatoes, 2 of which Hannah ate all by herself. I've counted over 30 still on the vine. I hope I get to eat some once they're ripe! :)

Kylie Mirella

After a high speed dash to the WS Forsyth Hospital, Kylie Mirella arrived at 10:55pm 6.18.2010!!!!

The most interesting part of the story thus far was that we were standing in the driveway at 10:15pm... 15 minute drive... 10-15 minutes to get from the car to the triage room to the delivery room...

Kim made sure that everyone was able to know we were on the way and needed a clear path by using the labor siren... I have a great imitation, maybe I will record it and post it later... If you recall Harry & the Henderson's and the ambulance scene then you have a good idea!

So 5 minutes later we had 8 nurses coming in and out and no doc. anywhere to be found... one in a C section and the other 15 minutes eta from a birthday party. They found a doc to pinch hit and she did great... Dr. Stilley I believe... we only knew her for 10 minutes and then our doc arrived.

Some pics below.

Two Days and Counting

Hannah started wearing panties yesterday. :) She had about 4 accidents yesterday, but slept through her 2-hr nap and stayed dry. Today, she started telling me that she had to go potty and only had 1 accident....which was probably my fault. When she woke up from her nap, she was crying like she wanted to go back to sleep, so I left her alone for a few minutes. Finally I realized that her cry was different, and when I went to check on her I asked what she was doing. She said, "I crying." :) When I asked why she said, "I pottied on Elmo blanket!" She was standing up and had pottied right there, and was so upset that she had gotten Elmo blanket wet. :( So, if I had gone upstairs when she first woke up, she probably wouldn't have pottied in her bed at all.

At church tonight, she told them 4 times that she had to go potty and finally did once. The thing is that she hasn't gone poo-poo since yesterday morning, but she was trying to this afternoon. I'm afraid of what I'll find in the morning. Hopefully she can make it and go on the potty in the morning. My baby is growing up!!!

The Vacuum Cleaner

So, evidently I haven't vacuumed in least not while Hannah was awake. I was going to vacuum the bathroom today while she was sleeping, but I cleaned the cabinets under the sink instead. So tonight after dinner I pulled out the vacuum and before I started vacuuming the bathroom I asked Hannah if she wanted to watch. She said yes, and when I turned it on, she had gotten Daddy to watch with her. She wouldn't come into the bathroom while I had it on. After thoroughly cleaning one section, I started moving things to clean another section and I moved her Fisher Price barn. She was very concerned that it was in the wrong place, but she sat down to play with it anyway. When I turned the vacuum on, she got up and left. I didn't think anything of it, but I did hear her say, "Daddy, up!" Well, I finally caught on when I moved to the next little section. I was vacuuming and turned around to see Mike holding her and tears were streaming down her face! She was thoroughly scared of the vacuum! So Mike showed her how it worked and got her laughing, but the minute it was on and he put her down, she started crying! Poor thing. Each time I turned it off after that she would come in and say, "Mommy done!" but I had to say no because I had a little bit left. I have never seen her so scared of anything! Poor baby. I should have guessed something was up last week when we were at the shoe store near closing time and a lady was vacuuming. Hannah wanted to know what that noise was, so we had to go watch her vacuum. Hannah acted like she had never seen a vacuum, and when I think about it, it's probably been months since she's seen me vacuum. Oh well. I guess I'll be doing that more in front of her from now on! :)

Hannah's ultrasound pics

Here is a link to Hannah's ultrasound pics at 18 weeks so you can compare the two babies. It's so neat to look back at Hannah's pics and compare them to how she looks now...especially her profile picture.
