Within the past week I have run into three of my long lost friends at seperate times. All of them have made similar comments about not knowing I had another baby. ALL three of them were talking about Detmer! This means a couple things. 1) I am horrible at keeping in touch with people. 2) I sure do know how to pop out baby's around here (or rather, get them sliced out, but whatever). So now I have to introduce these three to my blog so they can check out my newest addition. (I also need to update my Facebook picture, which is our family in Disneyland last May with Kendall in the belly). You are probably wondering where I got Kendall's super cute headband. That is from my talented friend Terre. She makes and sells them. I love them. Allie is wearing one in her picture, too. Her website is http://www.thecraftymoms.blogspot.com/ and she has some other super cute stuff on their as well!
Tonight Allie and I went to Wizard of Oz at the Rogers Memorial Theater. It was awesome! At one point during one of the songs, Allie started to dance. A lady in a couple seats over noticed and pointed Allie out to her entire group. Allie noticed they were all watching her and couldn't have been happier with all the attention. She was a show off the rest of the play. After it was over, she grabbed my hand and took charge. I wasn't sure where we were going, but she took me right up to the stage. I wish it wasn't so crowded and I could have gotten a picture with at least one of the characters, but it didn't happen. She said good-bye to all the characters. Dorothy was talking to someone else so Allie kept saying, "Bye. Bye, Dorothy." Until Dorothy said good-bye. She also said good-bye to Todo. It was the cutest.
Before the play we went to dinner as a family. You might notice the cast on Dave's finger. A couple weeks ago I mentioned Dave was going back to his first full week of work since Kendall's birth. That Thursday night after four full days of work Allie had enough. She said "Daddy, promise you won't go to work tomorrow." He explained he had to go to work and blah blah blah. But the spoiled girl gets her way! That night at basketball Dave fractured his finger. He had to go to the doctor on Friday, plus he was in too much pain to work, so we got to spend the day with Daddy. Sometimes that Dave just really goes above and beyond in the call of fatherhood. We had fun that day spending time together as a family, but it would have been much more fun if Dave hadn't been in pain or on drugs the whole time.
After my family night story last week, I'm sure everyone was on the edge of their seats to know what happened this Monday, so I'll tell you. Too make a long story short, our friends had their baby. Grandma M. watched the kids. We didn't return until about eight, but I brought our family night stuff along so we could just have family night as soon as we got back at Grandma's house. It ended up to be a really fun family night. I know some of you may be interested to know it was Wynn and Melissa who had their baby. A boy. 5 lbs 13 ounces, super cute, already sporting the red hair. No name yet. What is up with everyone having boys lately! I'm hoping those who are waiting to hear are all going to be having girls.
And to all my readers who want one, I wish upon you a magically appearing baby.
Now she's Nine Months
