31

Welp, that does it. I am 31! :)
Today was a great birthday!
This morning I got some sleep in time.
Andy bought me a beautiful flag that we hung on the tree that I look at outside all the time. --will post picture later.
My mama and daddy got me a portrait of Luna painted by a local artist based on a foto.--of course that made me cry
It is absolutely gorgeous, and it captured the look she had in her eyes perfectly. :(
I got a happy birthday serenade on my voicemail from Shannon, a card from Morgan, some cash from the in-laws, several other sweet cards from family...it was just a good day.
This afternoon I got down the av3nt carrying case to check out which breast pump parts i would need, and it turns out--i need the whole thing! yikes.
well I thought they cost around 29 dollars--that is how much the one was that I had, anyway.
We went to babies rU$ and they now cost 50.00. So, i will not have a manual pump. No worries. The other one should suffice.
They also do not have nursing bras--or gowns, nor does wal-mart....uhhghhh..
I feel sorry for Eastern NC first-time moms who want to really give nursing their baby a go--there are no supplies.
The lady in Wal-mart the other day apologized for hollering out, "do we have nursing bras?" to the other sales lady...ughhh...
I said, "oh no, that's not embarrassing to me at all, I am a mammal, and I am feeding my baby my milk--that is not gross--"
People trip me out.
I mean I was standing in a section full of cheap thong panties..ugh...

okay--off the soapbox. that is a seriously bad place to be right now. The baby bump is now just --really so big.
I have been having contractions and dilating for two or three days now. Thursday is my next Dr. appt, and I bet he will say that my cervix has dilated right much. My body is working.

Bueno, I had other things to blog about and now I cannot think of what they were.

I am off to internet shop and get me nursing bras. I have some, that are old-faithfuls, but I am after this one that is for sleeping in (i know that sounds crazy) but i bet it will be nice to not have milk leaking out all over my sheets.

Oh!the blog topic was going to be about mama's boys--I was reading about this topic in r#db00k, and I had a cute blog entry all planned out..oh well, I will do it tomorrow, with the pictures.

Happy Birthday Babe! I am glad that my card made it there in time for your special day....You have GOT to take a picture of Luna's portrait and put in on here, I think about her all the time :)
Also, try WalMart online for nursing bras. I got a few at our W^l M(*t store, but they usually have tons more stuff online. They were much cheaper than other places and they held up pretty decent. Love ya and tell Andy Happy Fathers Day!
