Song: "Gonna Get There"- Dierks Bentley
Mood: Apprehensive

Well... Aimee had her baby!! Tuesday at 5:07, Lucas Michael Kuhn entered the world via c-section. Aimee didn't get to hold him right away, but she did get some time with him after they put her back together. She only had about an hour and a half with him, but it's better than nothing right? They ended up taking him to another hospital because he was breathing to quickly. It was excruciating for her to watch them take her baby... but she's out of the hospital today and over with him today.

I went to the dentist on Monday for my cleaning. They asked if I could come back again this week to get some cavities taken care of. I went in yesterday (Wednesday) at 3:00 and they filled three cavities. They took pictures of my teeth before and then after they filled them and it was incredible. I am going back today (yuck) at 12:50 for more fillings. Steve bought us a new toothbrush on Monday after my appointment. We're using a Sonicare with a timer and a bunch of other cool features. I've been using that and his Waterpic each time I brush. Hopefully when I go back in June they'll see a HUGE difference in my teeth and gums.

This has been a pretty nice break. I'm looking forward to going back to work though. The weather is crappy so it's not like I can go out and do anything fun. I'm kinda stuck here at home, and been on the computer or watching movies. I'm not complaining, but I'm more excited for Spring Break.

I went to Steve's work yesterday and we went and had lunch together. We went and got Thai (sooooo good) and then came back and I hung out with him for a little bit. We bought a bunch of baby stuff from the lady at the credit union at FM, so I picked it up and brought it home. We got three car seats, a crib, a matress, a stroller and then Classic Winnie the Pooh bedding, and other room decor. It was an amazing deal and we thought we'd be stupid to pass it up. We're not pregnant or anything yet, but we've got the stuff so when it does happen, we're somewhat ready. It was like $260 for all of it and just an outstaning deal.

March is such a great month. We have so many birthdays and anniversaries in March!! On the 4th my brother Dave turns 36 and then Monday the 5th is my parents 32nd Anniversary. Tuesday the 6th is the 3 year mark that Steve and I have been together. Thursday the 8th is my sister-in-law Heather's birthday and she'll be 35. Then we go to the 19th and that's my Aunt Margie's birthday and then the 20th is my Dad's 60th birthday!!

I'm getting hungry so I'm going to go eat and get ready for the dentist appointment. I don't have to go back until April 5th.

Music: "Someday" by Glass Tiger
Mood: Nervous and apprehensive

Well I am officially on Mid-Winter break as of tomorrow. You'd think I'd be happy right now because I get to sleep in tomorrow... but no, I don't actually get to sleep in. I have a 9am dentist appointment. I know that there are some things that we (as adults) just have to do, but I absolutely HATE HATE HATE going to the dentist. I get this sick feeling in the pit of my stomach and it doesn't go away until I'm walking out of there after my appointment. I'm not sure exactly why I hate it so much, but I do and I have to go tomorrow and I'm very unhappy about it. So unhappy in fact, my entire day today has been awful because all I have done is think about my appointment and freak out about it.

Anyway... last night we had our February Junior Circle event at Lucky's in Novi. The turn out was incredible. We had 14 people come to the event, which is the biggest that we've EVER had!! We got to Lucky's at 6:15 and waited until 7:15 for a table to open. They don't take reservations and it's first come, first served (which sucks when you've got a big group). We ended up going to Hooters for dinner and coming back to Lucky's for games after. Hooters was an experience. It had an odd smell when we first walked in... and it was rather comical to see the girls in their get-ups. The food... left a lot to be desired. I had crab legs which were good, but took me more than an hour to eat.

We had fun at Lucky's and only spent $20 doing so. We had free Coke because Steve said he was the DD and they give the DD free soda. We went to the toy counter and cashed in our 658 tickets and we got some candy, a keychain, a high-bounce ball and some other junk. All in all it was a great time.

Aimee could go into labor at any given moment. I'm super excited and hope it's sometime this week!! She wants to get through Tuesday (she's got her long-term sub coming in) and then she said she could have him. I hope it's soon!!

Until next time...
