Hope

BellaRose and I went to her 9 month check up this morning. I missed the appointment a couple of weeks ago, completely forgot. So I guess this will be her 9 1/2 month appointment. Want to know the stats? Well she is a tall one, she is 28 inches tall. I don't believe they like to give out percentiles at our doctor's office, but the nurse sort of whispered it to me and told me she is in the 50-75th percentile on height. Want to know her weight? 16.3 pounds. What a little bean!!! She is in the 10th percentile on weight. The nurse told me she is tall and slim, that she was just a little ballerina! How sweet is that.
She is also working on her top 2 teeth now. She got those bottom ones so early, at 5 months. I was beginnning to wonder if she had teeth up there at all, but low and behold she does. A part of me sort of wishes she did not have any teeth there b/c then she would not have to have hard enamel cutting through her gums causing her to wake up at night crying and me sleeping on her floor until 2 in the morning just to soothe her when she cried. It was fun...... really.

Yesterday it seemed I just had "one of those days". You know the one, where nothing goes right, I mean nothing. Well that was yesterday. It was a rainy stormy day. Usually those kind of days don't get to me, but yesterday it did. Worth could not work because of the weather, and BellaRosey was whining ALL day because of those teeth I mentioned earlier. I tried icing my cake for class tonight and it just was not working. The I tried to make my bread and it really stuck to the towel, but it actually did turn out okay. Worth and I were on each other's nerves b/c we could not get outside and he was restless wishing he lived anywhere but where we do. I know you guys know this kind of day. So to solve this Becky and I went to get a pedicure. It was perfect, just what I needed.
This double rainbow helped end the day. Hope at the end of the rainbow. Hope that things do get better that tomorrow is a new day. It was spectacular. It was completely over my house. It was the kind of the thing that drew people outside. I could see neighbors slowly start to trickle out of the confines and safety of their homes, to view this amazing gift in our sky. We took a million pictures, well Worth did, but this one was simply taken from my cell phone and pretty much sums it up.

Aw, Kid. I hate days like that! I so totally hear you. And then, something brilliant happens... like a double rainbow... and you figure, "Ok. It won't be this way forever."

Send Worth over here. He and Curt can be restless together.

We too saw the double rainbow as the sun began to break through. It was marvelous! It is always a reminder to me that God sees us, knows our struggles, and has given us His promise. I always love the yellow cast of light the sun shines on everything after a thunderstorm too.

Teething can be really hard, but you are doing a great job of just being there for your little girl...life is easier when you have someone to go through it with...even when you are just a little ballerina!

That rainbow was soooo beautiful, I'm pretty sure the pot of gold was behind our house. I want to put a picture up of it too.
BellaRose is such a cutie! I love that she called her a ballerina!

Oh Sunday, I totally know that feeling.. I think I've had that over the last few days.. Monday it was gorgous here, I drove around with my top down, but then Tuesday brought rain and it killed my joy some.. We experienced the rainbow here too.. it wasn't a double one.. but how cool would it be if it was the same rainbow!

Love the pedi idea.. I could totally use one right now!

It was great seeing you last weekend too! (as always!)
