A glimpse into the female mind.....

My husband Ryan's official standpoint on the female gender in general is that "chicks are crazy", and he doesn't mind sharing that opinion with me, or anyone else. Now, I have always defended my gender to the utmost degree -loving, caring, emotional, feeling, rational, lovely...these things we are, crazy, we are not. However, as of yesterday I am beginning to wonder......

You see, yesterday, I cut my hair. I mean, I really cut my hair. My hair was past my shoulders, and now no part of it is remotely close to my shoulders. In my world, this is a big deal. Since then (yesterday at around 5:00) I have been living in turmoil:

"What have I done?" (the obvious statement after any haircut)

"Why cut my hair so short when I am 6 months pregnant?" (as if my face needed any help looking rounder)

"I think the left side is longer than the right side" (followed by a good 10 minutes in front of the mirror with the straightener)

"I think I actually do like it..." (then again.....)

"Oh. My. Gosh...what have I done?"

Now, I know all you guys out there are thinking - Ryan had it right all along - chicks, (especially this one) are (definitely) crazy!

But, girls of the world - you are behind me right? I'm not really crazy.

(Am I?) :)

Baby #3 is a.....


I went in for an appointment today, and my doctor looked for the second time to see if we could tell what we are having, but that baby is having none of it! So, I guess we just wait. My doctor will do another sonogram for me, but that won't be for another 4 weeks!

In other news, Larson has started praying out loud. His prayer last night at supper went like this:
"Dear God, Thank you for SuperDave. Thank you for Secily. Daddy took the rope down. (Ryan had taken down some rope decoration from Larson's room yesterday) Thank you for music in me (translation: High School Musical 2....should I be embarrassed? I am.) Thank you for my cars. Bry is going surfing. A-men.
God must get a kick out of all the little prayers He hears - partly thankful, partly informative, mostly hilarious.

Since we are still without a camera for me to post any recent is a picture selected at random from my computer - it's the entire Larson family, taken 4 days after Secily was born.

Dirty Rotten Scoundrel....

That's right. Those are my precise feelings about the person who went through my checked luggage and stole my camera and my credit card! (I know, not the brightest move on my part to put my credit card into my checked luggage, but still.....) I had some great pictures on the camera too - that is the worst part of it all.
So, you will just have to imagine the great time that we had making sushi when Erik & Yuriko were here. We had a homemade sushi good!
Thankfully we have been with family for the past month, so we have pictures from them that I can post.
Our trip to Ohio.....

Hopefully we will get a new camera soon, but in the meantime I will have to blog with whatever photos I can find on the computer! Should be interesting.....
