not me.




I did not let the Cupcakes sit on top of the car to watch the fireworks. Nope, not me!

I did not run (39 weeks pregnant) down the sidewalk after our church's 4th of July float so I could tape it on the video camera. Nope, not me!

I did not sneak out of church while my hubby was still preaching on Sunday morning to take Lincoln home because he would not stop crying from being very tired from 4th of July night. Nope, not me!

I did not really want my baby to be born on the 4th of July. Nope, not me!

I do not really want the baby to be born on July 7th too, because she's baby # 7, in the 7th month, on the seventh day. And I think it would be kind of funny. (Don't worry, it's not a numerology thing!) Nope, not me!

I did not spend 5 hours in labor and delivery Sunday evening only to get sent home (still pregnant)! Nope, not me!

Fingers crossed for the 7th! That would be VERY cool!

Sorry I haven't commented in a while. Somehow, my computer would crash when I tried to.

Glad you are doing well! The cupcakes are just darling!

I forgot...

Walk, walk, walk! I had my daughter on the day I picked (2 weeks early) dialated 2cm and I walked ALL DAY! Had her at 7:30pm after arriving at the hospital at 7:10pm.

Don't stop walking! I did laps around my house for hours :)

Oh man! That must have been so disappointing to find out you aren't going to have the baby that night! Definitely walk walk walk...and pray that the baby decides to make an appearance soon!

From MckMama's and just wanted to say re: "Mommy to 7! Under 9. I am with you on that one.

Our oldest was 7 years old when our 7th child was born, 7, 6, 5, 3, 2, 1 and newborn. Life is so much fun with many little ones.

Also, that seventh labor was one of the easiest, so I'm praying that you follow suit. Hoping that the baby will come soon.

Blessings,
Kimberly

here from nmm, hope everything happeds` soon for you, i know it it is not the mot important thing but after 7 pergnancies...well after 2 i was pretty keen for my second daughter to make her appearance! and life as a pastors wife is a job in and of itself... Gods grace is most definately upon your family if you even have a shred of sanity left! maybe the joy all those little blessings bring(even when making messes of your floor) is an element of that. all i can say is wow! i thought i was busy, maybe next time i am feeling overwhelmed i will stop by

Just found your blog from MckMama... the title got my attention... We have 9 children - under 14! Hm, when my 7th was born, my oldest was 8 - whoa! I always remember that for 5 days, I had 5 under 5! :-) Hope your birth goes smoothly!

Also was drawn to comment because of your "who you think we are" and "who we really are" photos - we are the same! :-)

I ran across your blog....love the blogger world (!) ....and had to comment because I am due any day (second!!!) with Baby #5. I am having contractions now and hoping this turns into something quickly! :)

Blessings on the arrival of your little one.

Hey, I found your blog through MckMama's... what a great "not me" post! It's so fun to browse through them and get a few chuckles of all the things we "dont do".
I also was going to ask for a bit of help. (this should take less than a minute) I entered my son in a Crazy Haired Baby photo shoot contest. He is in the top 9.. and it's just down to who gets the most votes.
If you could click on this link: http://lucylimestudios.com/2009/07/crazy-haired-kids-casting-call-shannon-stevenson-lucy-lime/

Thanks for your help! Have a great day!
