Interpret My Dreams

I've had wacky, intense dreams my whole life. My roommate, Sheena, used to tell me I would laugh all night. I've started documenting some of them over the last few months. What do you think, Freud?

(1) I dreamt I had a baby (baby girl) on April 2nd. But I had her in my sleep and had no idea I'd given birth. I was in my mom's living room and they said "Oh yeah, your baby is in the laundry room, go take a look!" I went in and my baby was on a baking sheet--they had put a caramel glaze on her and stuck her in the oven for a bit. While very disturbing, in my dream this was a normal tradition that didn't hurt the baby. But it did make her look a little...well, glazed and baked. I returned to the living room, without touching or cuddling my brand-new baby, and non-chalantly said "You know, you should probably let me see my baby before you bake her next time." Naturally, everyone agreed.

(2) Golum was chasing me and my new baby (baby boy) through marshes. My baby was born to rule middle earth or something, I don't know. All I know was there was a baby involved and I haven't watched Lord of the Rings in years. I don't know where this stuff comes from.

(3) I was driving home by myself and noticed a guy with an obviously broken down car in a storage shed off the side of the freeway. I stopped to help--you know, super handy with the cars and all. He was on a roadtrip from Alabama and asked if I was headed to Ogden, I was indeed, and wanted a lift. I said "I don't think it would be a good idea to be in a car alone with you." Ah, yes. But hanging out in a storage shed alone was perfectly safe... That's when I noticed a baby crying in his car. He asked if I could nurse the baby. Um, no. Then it hit me. Nobody takes a nursing baby on a roadtrip without the mommy. This kid was kidnapped. It was too sad, so I woke myself up.

(4) Another baby boy. I found him in the kitchen molding beef figurines of Justin and I to cook on the grill. I think it was some sort of voo doo revenge for dream #1.

So what could it mean... Well all that plus this:
and this:
makes me think we're having ourselves a little baby! And that baby is due May 30th :) I know sonogorams are the kind of thing only the mom and dad really enjoy. But isn't this one funny? Abbey crosses her ankles the exact same way when she sits down.

Contratulations...
I was thinking while reading the post that you were crazy if you actually needed help interpreting your crazy dreams....
I was all, um, maybe you want a baby or are having one...just a guess.
and then your announcement!

SO FUN. Is it a boy?

Ashley said...

Too early to tell. We would be thrilled with a boy and I think of it as a boy right now. Kind-of looks like it could be, huh...

jayne said...

Yeah!! Congratulations Ashley! I hope you aren't sick. I guess this means no fun run in April for you? Sad thing is you'd probably STILL beat me at 8 months pregnant!

allegra said...

CONGRATS again!! We're so thrilled for you guys. I'm rooting for a little boy!! Your dreams are way too funny and quite entertaining to read, thanks very much.

How is Sheena? Have you heard from her? This will be so fun to keep updated on all your exciting new baby developments:)

Katherine said...

I'm still scarred by some of my pregnancy dreams! We are so excited for yoU!!

val said...

I was totally laughing out loud about your dreams (which wasn't very nice cause Matt was having his Sunday snooze) but I couldn't help it. Girl, you are funny! And then what a fun surprise to find at the end! Congratulations guys! Will you guys be out here (UT) for the holidays at all? We'd LOVE to see you.

val said...

Ok, I have to let you know that Matt is awake now and I just HAD to read him your blog post. Once again I laughed out loud reading your dreams and he got a chuckle too! Thanks for a good Sunday laugh.

Tara said...

Yay! Congrats! I'm super excited for you and can't wait to hear the sex. Dreams can tell us alot, huh?

hayley said...

Congratulations!! How exciting:) Hope you are feeling well! I never get why things happening in dreams seem so normal while you are dreaming them, but completely absurd when you are awake and think about it. I HATE scary dreams, they are so disturbing. I hope those dreams only interpret to wonderful things for you and your new baby and fam:) Can't wait to hear what sex it is and names:)

Barb said...

CONGRATS GUYS! I had some odd inclination you might be prego. Maybe it was the lack of blog posts in the last little bit, or maybe its just my amazing phycic skills. We will be rooting for a boy!

Natalie said...

Yahoo! I am so excited to hear the exciting news--take care of yourself!

Chelsea said...

Congratulations! That is so exciting!!! Funny dreams...I always have crazy intense dreams like that too and I can always remember them...weird!

Danette said...

YEAH- another beautiful baby! I was getting worried, it seems like those who produce the most beautiful children stop at 1. The world needs several, maybe 12, little Pace children!!!!

melissa said...

YAY! That is a really funny sonogram. Congratulations!

Tiff & Trev said...

AHHH!! I am SO excited for you! I actually called on Saturday and you were taking a nap....didn't think much of it, but now it makes perfect sense, you're pregnant! YAY! I am so excited for you guys! It sure is a lot harder being pregnant the second time around when you have a little one to chase around...but I hope you're doing well. We need to talk so bad! Call me when you get a chance...

Tiff & Trev said...

Oh, and P.S. you're baby kind of looks like a frog :o)

rebecca said...

Yay!!! Congratulations, Ashley! I can't wait to see how cute this one is going to be :)

Melody said...

You're killing me Ashley! and 31 comments!? People are starting to realize how brilliant your writing is and how entertaining you are. Your blog is the place to come for a laugh!
Sorry if I spilled the beans to Jill! :) I'm so excited for you guys and thrilled that the new medicine is so sweet!

Aubrey said...

You truly are entertaining. AND I do laugh every time. THanks. CONGRATULATIONS! We are so excited for you and hope all is well. Those first few months are horrible (like you said) but the little bundles of joy are worth it!
