Another first and emotions

Monday night while Bailey and I were hanging out on the front porch (remember, my child HATES to sleep so whatever I can do in the evening to tire her, I do it!) I heard a noise. It was the ICE CREAM TRUCK! HOW EXCITING! Ice cream is not really my thing (at least not usually) lately, I have been craving it. Anyway, I was SUPER excited becuase Bailey has never had ice cream from the truck before. So, I stood her close enough to the road that he could see her but safe enough that I could see her while I ran in the house to get some money. He drove up and I let her choose what she wanted. Chocolate fudge sicle! My girl loves chocolate. It was SO fun! Definitely an experience I want to remember. I didn't get any pictures because it happened so fast but I will always remember it.

Then, she tells Daddy to come outside because she wants to put on a show for him. When we asked what kind of show she says "It's for my baby sisters. They are in mommy's tummy." We both looked at each other like "yeah right." I tried to explain to her tha tthere are no babies in my tummy but she insisted the show must go on! So, she did a little dance routine and sang. It was, of course, the most adorable thing I've ever seen.

We go to bed Monday night and Bailey is still talking about her baby sisters. Then, DH says he is upset because we don't have another baby and he wanted lots of kids. And I say (Not so nicely) HOW DO YOU THINK I'M SUPPOSED TO GET PREGNANT WHEN WE NEVER DO ANYTHING AROUND THAT TIME AND WHEN I TELL YOU IT'S TIME YOU ACT LIKE I DON'T KNOW WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT????? Apparently, he thinks I don't know what I'm talking about because I DON'T get pregnant EVERY time we try. And yes, my cycles are messed up and I was on clomid for 4 months and I don't ALWAYS know when I'm ovulating but By-God sometimes I know! This, of course, is AFTER he tells me that he thinks I'm not pregnant b/c I'm to negative about it. And, here he is all upset that we don't have more kids and telling our 3 year old that he doesn't know if we ever will. UUUUUHHHHHH! Men! Anyway, I love him and we WILL be trying to have another baby (as we have been but not as "hard core" as I would like) and yeah, I realize that sounds completely dirty but that's not how I meant it.

On a MUCH happier note:

We had a professional photographer come to our school a few weeks ago and take a picture of all of the staff's kids. She also did individual shots and Bailey's are UH-DORABLE! (as usual). I just love my girl so much!

Argh..I don't know what to tell you. But I am praying as always. Don't you just wish timing wasn't everything??

I ran across your blog in the comments of In This Wonderful Life!

We have TWO ice cream trucks that drive our street, but I'm too slow and always miss it... plus we never have cash. I can never get my son to eat ice cream, but he wants it from that truck SO badly!

Hang in there! : ) I know you are a good and obedient servant to Christ and I'm sure He will grant you the desires of your heart soon.

So fun about the ice cream truck!!! On the TTC front: Have you tried the Ovulation predictor kits? They are really cheap if you order them online and very accute...that's how I knew i was Oing...otherwise I would not know...if you haven't done so, you might want to start 'charting' your temps...if you are interested let me know...I'm a PRO..I had to do it for 18months! I also COMPLETELY understand the guy thing and how they just don't get it...I was there every month...he would be 'too tired' or something..ggrrrr!!! MEN!!!

The pics of Bailey are so precious!!!!!!
