Since then I haven't really had any baby dreams (at least none that I can remember.) Chris says he has them almost every night, lol. Well last night I had a dream that I was pushing a baby boy around in a stroller...it was the Stokke, and it was turquoise blue. And we were in a bedroom. I was just pushing him around and he was laughing! It was very entertaining to him. Anyways, it was rather exciting! I'm wondering if I'll have any girl dreams??

A long time ago, before we got pregnant, I had a very cute dream. I was bathing a little baby boy and afterwards I laid him all wrapped up on our bed. As I unwrapped the towel to put a diaper on, I saw a sly smilie on his face. I said, "Don't you dare!" and laughed. As son as I unwrapped the towel, he squirted straight into the air!! I hit the floor and laughed so hard...then I woke up!

I've been loving some Kit Kats recently. I asked Chris to pick me up one on his way home from work one night. He came come with a bag and explained that they didn't have any. "The store manager was searching through boxes trying to find one!" I was about to have a pity party when he pulled out a Crunch bar, Mr. Goodbar, and Reese's cups. "I hope these are ok instead!" I was delighted :)

Yesterday's appointment was BORING. As soon as we walked into the room and didn't see an u/s machine, we were bummed. We did get to hear the h/b....which of course is very cool every time we hear it. Danielle (the nurse) says it sounds like a girl! Chris and I both think it's a boy though. Dr. K came in and did a quick exam then asked why I was losing weight! Trust me, I have been eating food like it's my job! I must have just had a light lunch b/c while I may not have gained weight, I didn't think I'd lost some! Let's just hope I stay on the healthy side of weight gain...not too much, not too little. We want Baby Burns to be nourished in there!
Next came the disappointing part. In 4 weeks I go for a blood test to check for Downs, and other diseases. Then 4 weeks AFTER THAT we get another sonogram. Ugh, I don't know how I'm going to wait 8 weeks to see the baby. On the bright side it'll make the summer drag by :) I'll have plenty to keep me busy: summer school, the wedding, Maine, the nursery. I hope Baby Burns stay nice and safe in there.

What a looooong 4 weeks it's been! Tomorrow we're supposed to hear the h/b in the doctor's office. I feel like we kind of cheated since we've already heard it several times with our doppler. What I'd really love is a sonogram! Baby Burns is probably looking like a real baby now, as opposed to 4 weeks ago when he/she looked like a snowman :) I'm so glad tomorrow is almost here.

So, we bought a doppler from Amazon.com. I hate waiting in between doctor appointments, so I though hearing the baby's heartbeat anytime we wanted would help. It came yesterday and we tried it last night. We thought we found it...it sounded like a heartbeat! Apparently it was mine :( I knew it was too slow to be Baby Burns. We'll try again tonight, but I feel so silly for being all excited...about my own heartbeat, lol.
I found a cool video on YouTube of what he or she should sound like. It's also the same doppler we have:

I can't believe it's come and gone. I was fine yesterday. I even made it through my end of the year motivational speech- "I'm so proud of you, you've been the best class, good luck, etc." But as soon as the kids started hugging me good-bye I lost it! I hate crying, but I couldn't help it. I've had the most amazing group of kids this year. We all bonded so much. Will I ever have a class this wonderful? I hope so. Chris swears I said the same thing about last years class, lol.
I start all over again in July. I'll have 17 kids in my summer school class...eek! I do have a para, but that's a huge class for summer school. By the time that's over I'll be ready for a break (yaaay Maine!) and 18 weeks pregnant!! Until then I plan on packing up my room, finishing my records, swimming, and relaxing.

I'm sure it's going to be crazy and fly by! I'm ready for a break, but I am going to miss my kids so much. It's been a great year with them. I'm doing summer school in July and by the end of that I'll be ready for another break :) Hopefully we get to go to Maine in August. Ever since my parents separation, we don't vacation there anymore. We tried it once with dad, but it just wasn't the same. We skipped it last year and went to Disney instead. That was fun (although HOT) but there's nothing like Maine on the lake in August.
Some fond memories of Maine:
Fishing off the dock w/Craig & Kelly: circa 1990
Scott's love of the seagull!
Chris and I
Scott & I on the boat!
No water skiing for me this year...
I'll have fun watching Scott, who could ski for MILES!

I WISH I had recorded their reactions...it was so funny! At the end of the day I gave each table group a brown bag. Inside were the cut up words, "Mrs. Burns is having a baby!" I told them that I had a special message for them and that to find out what it was they had to work as a table group to put the words in a sentence. It took about 5 seconds! There were gasps, teary eyes, grins, shock. Emma came up and rubbed my belly....Christopher gave me a hug. The rest of the kids jumped up and down and held hands.
I was overwhelmed & touched by their reactions...they were so excited! I love them so much and I'm so happy I shared the news with them. Luckily there were no scary questions, "How do you get pregnant?" or "Where do babies come from?" I knew better and told them during the last 10 minutes of school ;) It feels more real now that I've told them. They are such a huge, wonderful part of my life, and it was hard keeping it a secret!!
