So I have been doing all sorts of things to try to help me progress. I have made a bunch of spicy food. I have made some "Labor Inducing" recipes found online such as general taos chicken and Labor cookies. Both were tasty...except let me tell you. The cookies were yummy like ginger bread cookies, but it contains Cayenne pepper which gives you a huge kick in the mouth afterwards. I've eaten an entire batch (not at once). I've had contractions, but no baby. I also love my birth ball which is just a fitness ball that I call my birth ball. Same thing really. It is awesome. Not only does it help relieve pregnancy discomforts when they arise, it is fun to sit Kaylee on top and bounce and roll her around. HAHA She also likes to roll it across the living room which I find entertaining. We also have been taking walks.

We had a WONDERFUL weekend this last weekend. We went to the zoo with our friends Josh and Kinsey. They were already planning on going so we just asked if they wanted to come with us too. It was great I got in a lot of walking and then we had lunch where Kevin had to park on the opposite side of the mall from Red Robin. So more walking YAY! Then a wondrous long nap for all 3 of us. I like to get the naps in as I know they will be far too few very soon.

|Kaylee, where's your head?!|
One funny story with Kaylee recently is about a week ago she unnecessarily woke up at like 6am. So I got up and took her to our dark living room hoping she will sleep on my belly/shoulder until she was supposed to wake up. Well right when I thought she might be a sleep baby Malcolm goes kicking away. Kaylee lifts her head, looks at my belly with a concerned look and says, "Baby!!" She then tries again to sleep and then he starts kicking her again, and she looks a little more annoyed and exclaims, "Baby!" I knew that sleep would not be in our future until nap time. It was funny how she reacted especially since she never reacted before when he kicked her.
