The Mistress and Early Labor

I finally gave in.* Kevin has a new girlfriend and her name is XBox 360. While I wasn't initially thrilled about the purchase, I understand that Kevin is a gamer. He was so excited when I finally said yes you can upgrade your dinosaur PS2. Then I got the privilege of listening to the pros and cons list for the PS3 and XBox 360. After much debate**, and playing a friends XBox, the purchase was made. With only a small tear in my eye, I watched my husband fall into the arms of a toy. He bought it Monday and hasn't been to bed before midnight since.

All of that changed yesterday though. A wonderful women, we will call her PR, gifted me with Guitar Hero and now I have a new girlfriend too! After a small panic attack last night when we couldn't get the guitar to work we were on our way. For a good 20 minutes I was a rock star. Not a very good one but that is besides the point! We now have a family game! That is right...Jaelynn played too! This softens the blow a little of losing my husband. Kevin told me last night that this really wasn't a game I would catch him playing on his own but he will play with me...and Jaelynn of course.

Daddy and Jaelynn

Check out the rock star tongue!
How am I doing daddy?

I have mentioned on here before that my younger sister is pregnant with twins. I'm so excited to meet my nephews! I just designed and sent out her baby shower invites on Monday and have been looking through different websites for instructions on how to make a diaper cake. I think the cake should be very easy and I'll post pictures and instructions when I'm done.

Gab is right around 30 weeks pregnant and doing much better. A few weeks ago during an ultrasound they discovered that the blood flow to Baby B was starting to decrease. So they have been keeping an eye on this (so far things look good) and just to be on the safe side, Gabrielle received two shots last week to help develop the babies lungs. The doctors are aiming for 35 to 36 weeks gestation. That will give the boys hopefully minimal time in the NICU.

Yesterday Gab's pregnancy took a turn in another direction. She started having contractions and thankfully they were able to stop them with meds. Unfortunately, Gab is now on bed rest! I haven't talked to her yet to get the specifics but it looks like we may be postponing her shower until after the babies are born. I'm going to check with her though to see what the doctor said exactly. If she is on modified bed rest we may still be able to have the shower, just at a different location. Please keep Gabrielle and the boys in your prayers! We really want another 5 weeks of pregnancy just to ensure that the boys are healthy!

*He talked about this almost every waking moment for 3 days...I had no choice...he wore me down.
**MUCH debate!! 3 days worth!


  1. Just for mentioning my punishment, I am going to force you to go see Toby Keith with me when he comes back this summer. Evil, aren't I? :)

    You are very welcome! Enjoy!
