what we've been up tp.....

This past weekend Jackie and I flew to Las Vegas to visit my mom before Jackie's birthday! We had to take advantage of her flying free one last time! I was kinda worried how she would do on the plane ride since my daughter does not i repeat DOES NOT like to hold still. She always wants to be on the go. But she was my little angel on the flight there perfect in every way.....the flight was not full so she got her own seat and she was just happy to watch out the window and talk to me non stop about everything and anything she could think of. She kept telling me how she did not want to take the airplane to grandmas house she wanted to go on the boats......lol silly girl boats can not go to Vegas....
Well we got to Vegas and Jackie could not have been happier to see Grandma, and her Uncles! She was in heaven! She loved every minute of it and enjoyed all the attention she got from people everywhere we went....Vegas toddlers/babies are not quite as common so EVERYONE stops to talk to them and comment on how cute they are lol....Jackie does great in the spotlight and enjoyed talking to whoever would talk to her!
We took Jackie out to celebrate her birthday and went to the cheesecake factory ( i know what toddler gets that??? HAHA well I had never been there they have spaghetti her favorite food) Apparently Cheesecake factory does not have a kids menu so she got an adult size serving! She was more then thrilled to have a HUGE bowl of food and started to shove it all in!! ;) Then I got some cheesecake to share with her! She loved it and loved the company of her Uncles Sim and Andy, Grandma, and Sims friend Frank.
Jackie got to sleep in grandmas bed since grandpa was gone and she just wanted to talk and talk to grandma and tell her everything that happened that day and well in her life lol! Grandma is always a good sport!
Sunday we went to church and just hung out with family! It was really nice to be together and spend time with my Vegas fam! we miss them! We missed Derek but i think he enjoyed having the house to himself!
Vegas was VERY hot while we were there it got up to 117, but we stayed nice and cool inside the house!
The flight back was a bit harder, we sat down and I let Jackie sit in a seat but then the flight filled up and so she had to come on my lap....she was NOT very happy with the girl that sat in her seat and kept telling her, "my seat please my seat i need it" lol. The girl was sweet and talked to Jackie and then she was happier...it was hard for me to have her on my lap, its already got one girl ;) but we made it she did great! I am glad she is such a good traveler, she talked the whole way there and enjoyed it! She was pretty excited to see daddy at then end!!

TODAY i went to my doctors appointment, and I gave him my VBAC consent form they have to have you fill out and lol he was SO excited haha i thought he was going to start jumping up and down. He kept telling me how great of a choice i was making and how much better it will be. We talked alot about how i want my labor to go and everything! I told him what i did not like about last time...he told me we can change it and make it the way i wanted it! I just hope this baby does not have isses like Jackie and i get to hold her right away and nurse her soon!!!
I feel so lucky to have the doc that I have! I hear so many people complain how they have no say about labor or their docs wont let them do certain things or they push c sections and discourage VBACS, i am glad my doc and all the docs that work there care about me and what i think!! :) SO yes i decided to try the VBAC wish me luck! :)

Yeah for VBAC! It is the greatest thing I ever did! And it is unbelievable how much better the recovery is! I hope it goes as well as mine did!
