We've been doing some landscaping and we have a big mound of dirt in the back yard. Our dogs have been playing "King of the Mountain." Lexi still kicks Fritz's butt even though she's getting old and he's bigger than her:

This is how she felt after her vaccinations:
But she was back to normal by the following morning:
Olivia had her 2 month check-up last week and she did very well, even when they gave her shots. She is in the 98th percetile for height and the 59th for weight, which means she's tall and skinny... and beautiful.
Everything is going really well here and I LOVE being a mom. It's funny because, when I was expecting, almost every other mother I talked to told me that I would feel overwhelmed and frustrated a lot during my babies first few months of life, but I don't feel that way at all. I think having a baby is totally fun and I love every minute. I don't attribute this to my positive outlook or unflappable patience, but to my sweet baby who spoils me because she is always so happy and easy going. What a cutie!

I'm going to update my book review blog. I don't have cable at my house so I have been reading while nursing (about 8 hours a day). I'm going to try to start posting reviews of all the books I'm reading for anyone who's interested. The link to that site is on the side bar of this blog.
I don't have anything interesting to say because I talk to a 1 month old all day and I'm still too sore from giving birth to go out and do anything interesting... Maybe next week...

Beautiful baby, 5 days old:

In other news, the birth of my child is supposedly rapidly approaching and I'm getting excited and very nervous for that. It should be sometime within the next week or two so as soon as she gets here, I'll post some pictures of her; as long as that doesn't violate the deal I made with People Magazine for them to give me $5 million for the first shots of her.

The ceremony was at the Del Mar race track and we were seated in the sun on a beautiful, 80 degree San Diego morning. I know that's not very hot but, coupled with the black polyester cap and gown and I was ROASTING. Luckily, I'm sporting this huge belly now so the attendants brought me water. I'm sure I was more comfortable than every one else was. My face got sun burned a little but it was still so fun to be there and experience the whole thing. I don't think graduations are fun or interesting at all so I didn't ask anyone to come except my mom, dad and Gabe.
My stomach is huge now and there's no missing the fact that I'm pregnant, even in those tent/gowns. When I walked across the stage to receive my diploma, all of the faculty members that I shook hands with commented on it. One guy said, "Congratulations, for two!" Another woman said, "Looks like you made it just in time!" And the president of the college said, "Careful, sweetheart." Overall, it was a great day and it was fun to share it with my little baby, even though she's not made her debut yet.
Here are some pictures of me, my mom, my dad and Gabe after the ceremony and at lunch afterwards. The smokin' hot one is my husband, the handsome silver fox is my dad and the beautiful enchantress is my mom. I'm the one that looks like a harbor buoy:

I can't figure out how to add actual You Tube videos onto my blog so I just posted the links. Can someone please explain to me how to put the video on there?

The other reason I'm behind on blogging is that nothing interesting ever happens to me anymore now that I never leave the house except to go to class. I do have some weird dreams though so maybe I should start blogging about those. Also, my hormones or something has caused my temper to be short so I'm irritated comparatively often. I guess I could lodge complaints here about the injustuces done to me in traffic and at the grocery store, but I don't want to bring you down. Then everyone would be all grumpy when I return to my normal, sunny dispostion after this kid comes out.
The last blogging option is for me to start posting pictures of all the baby stuff I've been accumulating but I have a feeling the rest of the world might not find tiny hats as entertaining as I do. So... I'll wrack my brain and try to come up with something contributory to post on. I welcome any suggestions. I'll post again this week, even if it has to be another one about the doggies.

Our pretty bed:
Finally, I saw this sign for the writing lab on campus and maybe it's just the Lit person in me but I thought it was HI-larious.
