I Dreamed A Dream. . .

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. . . :)

Here is the great news-either way that child is guaranteed to be gorgeous what with you two in the mix. Thanks for all of the comments and support by the way. They really make my day.
We miss you guys so much. I hope you haven't lost Dallin to harvesting yet!

I STILL have dreams that I'm having a baby girl and am most definately NOT! I've seen the proof! My bet is boy! Then Connor and lil boy Calaway can be friends!

Hill, I think it is safe to say that your newest little one will be quite the looker as well. :) And no, I haven't lost him yet. We're heading to Washington as soon as we hear that the timothy is cut. Then it will be goodbye for a month! :) We'll be back down here for July, 'cause that's when harvest usually starts here. So, let the games begin! :)

Janica, can't wait for the crazy dreams to continue. :) There have been plenty thus far (and not all about the future baby. :))

Melyssa, Connor and the baby can either be best friends or boyfriend and girlfriend :) hehe!

Hey yea you guys should find out that would be better and hey what do you know you and hillary could be havin both boys but everyone that is pregnant that i know is havin girls so i still think that you 2 will be havin boys =]

I would find out (like I always do) because waiting/dreaming/wondering for 23 more wks would be agony/annoying/unproductive to me. I want to be organized before the baby i.e. have the right outfit to come home in, blanket color,etc . . . But if you wait than that's great too. Just saying - I couldn't wait. Guess I'm not that patient.

Maybe you're pregnant with twins...one of each :) My sister was pregnant with twin boys but they didn't find about that there was two of them until she was close to 20 weeks along. Just something to think about.....

:)

Dallin and Ashley said...

Oh Lisa, we have thought about that so much! Well, we thought about it a ton before we found out there was just one. :) But who knows! I am only 17 weeks, I could find out at my next appt that I am actually prego with twins. :) If that be the case, wish us luck :)
