Follow the Leader

Last week my life became a stressball the minute our Bishopric second counselor asked me if I would be willing to serve as the PRIMARY MUSIC LEADER, I don't know what these people are thinking. I don't sing. And most importantly, I don't sing in front of people.
I went to primary last week, just to observe how the current music leader runs the show, and was completely floored by #1 how many songs I have forgotten or just have flat our never heard, and #2 how huge our primary is. There were over 80 kids in primary last week. That is a lot of people who are going to hear how much I really don't sing.
So this Sunday is my first "try"....yes, EASTER Sunday. Then mother's day is coming up and we have to do TWO songs in sacrament meeting. Ugh! I have been desperately trying to learn all these songs this week - poor Steve has to bear the brunt of it. I hear him walking around the house singing the fourth article of faith - I have played it on the piano about a hundred times since last Sunday.
This week was also stressful because we found out our little baby may not be as perfectly healthy as we thought. I had an ultrasound last week - not even sure why I had it, I thought it was routine, but come to find out most people don't get an ultrasound at 29 weeks unless something is wrong. She is a small baby, which I already knew since my belly is really not that big (I am measuring three weeks behind), but her head is why the doctor is concerned. Apparently the size of her head is measuring in the less than two-percentile.
It could mean a scary word like Dolichocephaly, or maybe it just means she has a small head and I will have an easy delivery. At any rate, my doctor wants me to see a specialist for a level two ultrasound. Steve and I are doing that next Tuesday morning. I am trying my best to not freak myself out, but I just want to know what's going on!
I think I'm in for another stressful week....

Sisters and babies

This past weekend we travelled up north (through rain and snow!) to go to Kim's newest baby's blessing. It was terrific - I got to see all three of my sisters in one place. Who cares about my bros =). The most amazing thing about the trip is I took pictures! I never take pictures of anything, besides the rooms in my house, so I am quite proud of myself. Kim's baby girl, Cassie Mae, is as cute as babies can be. Just holding her makes me yearn to meet my little baby - I just hope she can hold a candle to Cassie. Those Gardner kids will make us all look ugly!

Cassie Mae - Gardner #3

Blake - Gardner #2 (see what I mean? He looks like a porcelain doll!)

The happy family

Me, wishing my baby would come already!

The original Williams girls

Favorite quote of the weekend.

Me: "Mama, did you spank your kids?"

Mama: "No, I didn't make a cake."

Oh, to be old and on the brink of senileness....
