Everyday update

December 3, 2009

We had another ultrasound the Monday before Thanksgiving, our little man is growing strong. He is weighing in at 3lb 6 oz and has already turned (head down face down) so we weren’t able to see his precious face much. *although we did get a peek at that cute little baby tooshie! Mommy’s next check up is scheduled for December 8th and we’ll see if the dr will be changing my due date or not.
Thanksgiving went well; we grubbed at my parents’ house and spent the day being lazy!!
This week has brought about some crazy and exhausting times. My mom was rushed to the hospital on Sunday night with abdominal pain and chest pains that came and went. It’s now Thursday and they found a small issue that they believe is causing her pain and will be doing surgery(it’s and “outpatient” procedure) to attempt to help the tear heal.  If all goes well and she’s not in too much pain she is supposed to be discharged tonight…. our hopes and prayers are with you mom.  We love you

On another note, I’ve been nesting cleaning and organizing the house for our little guy’s arrival.  I’ve also been on a bit of a crafty kick.  I have Braydon’s scrapbook caught up to date, I have the pages and whatnot organized to start my pregnancy/Gavyn’s scrapbook, the wedding save the dates have been sent out, all the wedding favors are made and ready to go, Christmas cards are sitting on my counter waiting to be mailed, we trimmed the tree and decorated the house (we did a lot of home made decorations this year too!!), I made a new skirt for our tree (or as braydon likes to call it a “tree mankey” *blankey* for those of you who don’t speak braydon), I am working on the tie blanket for braydon and all the rest of the christmas gifts are either made or purchased and are for the most part all wrapped!!! Phew it’s been a busy past 2 weeks!

To top it all off, my poor little guy has a head cold and I’m exhausted!


Baby’s Name

November 11, 2009

The Bump at 27 weeks


We have finally picked a name for baby boy #2

Gavyn Edward

As you can see; the belly bump is growing and growing!

He’s a very active boy and we can’t wait to see

And hold him.  Mommy’s a bit tired and sore but

That’s par for the course!  We’ve been getting

Big brother ready and getting the house ready

A little at a time…that’s as much as I can handle


So Many Changes

November 11, 2009

Last week I found out that I can no longer have my wedding at our chosen location 😦  So now it’s time to totally re-plan the entire thing (we were planning to have the ceremony and reception at the same location).  So the date, location, menu, invitations…. EVERYTHING have been changed and I will update with a post for each (hopefully).

Our lil man celebrated his 2nd birthday in October and I have tons of pics to post for that as well.  The pregnancy is going well; baby boy #2 is growing stronger and healthier everyday…. and therefor my belly bump is getting more and more swollen…. oh the joys!


It’s a BOY!!

September 23, 2009

I had my 20 week ultrasound on 9-15-09 and we found out we are having another little boy!!  The baby is healthy and growing well and that’s most important.  Daddy was kind of hoping for a baby girl but is very excited to be welcoming another son.  We are working on names and think we have one picked out…. you’ll just have to wait a little while longer to find out.

14 week check up

August 8, 2009

Our 14 week pre-natal check up was this week and we all went (mommy, daddy, and peanut).  Everything is right on track and we got to hear our little bean’s heartbeat.  Peanut’s eyes were huge when he got to “hear the baby” and I don’t think daddy could’ve had a bigger smile!  We also found out that we have another active one; everytime the dr caught the heartbeat the baby would flip flop and we’d have to find it again!


The Bump

July 27, 2009

We are totally excited to be expecting our second baby.  I am due Feb. 4, 2010 *if I deliver on that date both my babies will have birthdays on the 4th*  and I’m right around 11 weeks in the picture.  I have definitely “popped” much faster this time and seem to be carrying a little lower than I did with Braydon.
