We can't believe it but Camden is now 3 years old. Time sure does fly by. Anyway, we wanted to post some photos of the party (there are more photos posted to our album-especially for the Prathers'). Camden loves Wheel of Fortune and Amy had the cute idea of making this a theme for his party. Amy found a cake online that was made to look like the wheel and so we got together and tried to replicate it. In the above photo we found Carson and Nadia alone, in the dark, playing under the bathroom sink. They are so cute together but we're going to have to keep a close eye on these two.

So Nadia had a play date with her friend Bella in Greenfield (about 40-45 minutes away) today. When I woke at 4 am and couldn't fall back to sleep, because there's absolutely no comfortable position at this point in the pregnancy, I knew the day was off to a bad start. Even on my way out the door something was telling me to just stay home (I had the same bad feeling I got when Jose came through our ceiling...I should have listened) but poor Nadia had been cooped up in the house for two days and I felt she really needed her play time with her friend. So we make it all the way to Greenfield, just a mile away from Missy and Bella's home, I was busy looking for a particular street and collided with an elderly man in a white truck. At first, it appeared that he had pulled out in front of me but when I got out I noticed that not only did he have a stop sign but so did I (darn, a 4-way stop and I completely missed it!). Anyway, the collision wasn't too bad despite the damage that the Honda sustained. Nadia didn't even cry but whimpered because of my scream when I realized what was happening. She was mostly intrigued by all the commotion, people and lights. An ambulance was called to the scene but I opted to stay put because I already had a doctor's appointment scheduled at 3 pm and Nadia seemed fine. My friend Missy picked us up and Nadia still got to play with Bella while we waited for Jose to come get us. The baby has been moving and the heartbeat is fine. I'm dilated to 3 cm and having many contractions so we'll see what happens next week.

Nadia has shown an interest in Daddy's Wii recetly and I'm not sure what to think about it...although, she does look pretty cute trying to play the oversized guitar. The hair is growing. I was able to pull it back in just one little pony tail the other day. She looks so different to us when the hair is up.
So, last Friday we had our first playgroup at our house. It was nice having the Moms and kids all over but Nadia wasn't as thrilled as I had hoped she would be. We know that Nadia is sensitive, tell her, "no," and she usually cries with hurt feelings but I had no idea that other kids could also push her sensitivity button so easily. There is this one adorable girl, Brooke, who is just a few months older than Nadia who really likes Nadia and doesn't leave her alone from the moment she sees her. Brooke loves to share a chair with Nadia when Nadia's already sitting in it, take away Nadia's pacifier so she can put it back in Nadia's mouth, and Brooke gives hug after hug that usually results in Nadia falling down. Brooke is so loving and just wanted to be where Nadia is but Nadia is quite frightened by her and cried whenever she got near. Needless to say, our playgroup was a long couple of hours with Nadia clinging to me whenever Brooke approached her. So now we hope that with each playgroup Nadia's backward personality learns to handle the stronger more forward type personalities. Also, we're looking to register Nadia into "pre-school" this fall to help further her social skills.;-)
