Seriously, there are some crazy goings on in the head of Ashley Calaway in the night time. Chalk it up to pregnancy or something, but I just keep having weird dreams! And they're slightly realistic to boot. Anyhow. A few nights ago, I had a dream that I had a baby girl. And she was precious. And the dream was just bizarre. You know how you'll have a dream where you know you are in a certain place but it's just a little bit different than what it looks like in real life? Yup, that was basically the dream. Picture me with my newborn daughter prepared to walk from the Wendy's/Taco Bell area of Court St in Pasco to my parents house on Rd. 100 via I-182. Yup. Weird.
Then last night. . . oh last night. If I could just go back to last night and relive the entire dream, I would. Once again, I dreamed I had a baby girl. (That would make boy dreams at 1 and girl dreams at 2. Girls are winnin this race so far) And in this dream, I had just delivered my baby girl. She was beautiful. She had a full head of dark hair and the most precious face you have ever seen on a baby. Then, we named her Emma. Yes, Emma. Problem: There's already an Emma in my family and an Emiline. Adding yet another one would pose a serious problem. Which I realized by the end of the dream and was trying to figure out a way to tell the Hospital that we had actually changed our minds and we didn't want to name her Emma, but we just weren't sure what we DID want to name her. But I want to go back and hold that baby. When I woke up this morning, I thought, "I'm only 17 weeks along. I'm not even half way. Curse you beautiful baby dream! I just wanna hold a newborn!" D'ya think they'd let me go into the Labor and Delivery section of the hospital and hold random baby's? No? They'd turn me away and tell me to head to the 5th floor? What's on the 5th floor? The Psych ward?!?
Anyway, now I am thoroughly confused. I figured once I had had the dream about having a boy that I would just assume we were having a boy. But now that I have had TWO dreams about little girls and ONE dream about a little boy. . . sheesh. Maybe I will just find out. . . :)
