1. Germs-- As predicted, Kiera woke up sick monday morning. I guess that that's life though and she'll get the germs eventually anyway.
2. Candy-- don't give my 1-year old candy! Espcially not gummy bears or skittles on which she could choke!
3. I am no longer the sole influence on her little life. As I was sitting in nursery trying to play with Kiera I overheard one of the nursery leaders telling a 2-year old "just wait until your parents come-- you are going to be in trouble. They are going to be mad at you and yell at you. Just wait till they come." I don't want anyone ever telling my daughter that! I don't care what she is done, I'm not going to yell at her and I certainly don't want her to dread my coming!
It almost makes me want to be a nursery leader myself so I can protect my little sweet daughter from everything..... but then I realize that I can't go to kindergarten through college with her. I guess it is time I just let her grow up. I'm just not ready to give up my baby!

Kiera had her first experience with rain yesterday. It rained in the morning and I took her outside to stand on the porch to watch. She was so excited about it that I ended up letting her play in the rain. She LOVED it and was mad when I took her inside. This video is of her second experience with rain (we had quite a storm last night!) As you can see, she was very excited about it again.
P.S. I have to say that I love rainy days. Yesterday was the perfect rainy day: we played in the rain, got dry and put on warm sweaters, baked pumpkin bread and cookies while Kiera and I cuddled under her blankie and read books. I love days like that.

2. I sat down with a calculator today and added up all of the medical bills from this pregnancy thus far. The total was $104,464.86 and we've only had to pay about $500 of that since we have good insurance.

I'm here to tell everyone that country music has changed and is now a great thing (for the most part-- I admit that twangy music does occasionally mix in with the good stuff). The great thing about country music is that not only do the musicians have actual talent, but the messages in the songs are really great and uplifting. They teach good principles and have nice little stories to them.
There's my opionion. I thought I'd blog about something other than my daughter (that is especially for you Jen).

The picture on the right is the picture of my maternity clothes (pants not included). You'll notice that half of them are long sleeved too so I won't be able to wear them when it get's hot. Sorry people, maternity clothes are just EXPENSIVE and for the amount of time I'm going to be wearing them it's just not worth it. I went shopping last week and bought 1 shirt and 2 skirts and it cost me $100! ouch! Too bad I can't wear maternity dresses with my feeding tube because I have 4 of them : (
The picture on the left is a nice comparison between Steve's clothes (left) and mine (right). Isn't my husband a clothes horse?

Kiera and I have been visiting my family in Utah this past week in order to give a little space to Steve while he studies for mid-terms. On May 1st we woke up to snow in the morning (what is wrong with this state? snow in may???!!) I took Kiera out to see what my little California girl thought of snow. She touched it and then got really mad that her fingers were cold. After that she wanted nothing to do with it. The video is cute-- she did NOT want her feet in the snow! Good thing we live in California!
