Baby Haley

My friend Emily who was due 1 day before me had her little girl Haley last Friday. We haven't met her yet as they have had a ton of family at the hospital and we didn't want to bombard them. But I can't wait to meet her!! It will be fun as it is kind of like getting a glimpse of what Easton is looking like right now. Here is a picture from a previous post of Emily and I with Easton and Haley.
Congrats to Todd and Emily. Chris and I are so happy for you!

So Thankful!

Just wanted to post really quick about last Sunday. Chris and I were heading to grab some lunch after church with my parents. We were all in the car, headed to Blue Mesa for their Sunday Brunch. We were at a red light and there were 2 brothers in the back hitting each other. One prob. about 14 or 15, the younger one prob. around 8 or 9. Anyway, at the red light the Dad turns around and starts punching the older brother for beating up on his younger brother. And I am not talking about play slapping or anything like that..this was full fists with the horrible angry look in the father's eyes. Now, I don't think it was right for the older brother to be hitting his little brother, but now I see where it came from. He was doing exactly what his father has set an example to do. That just made me so mad. Chris was fuming too. I wanted to do something...but what do you do when you are in a car, plus this guy obviously had an awful temper. It made me so so so thankful though for Chris. I am so blessed that I have a husband who is patient, kind and even tempered. I am just so thankful to God that our son will have a father that will lovingly yet firmly discipline him and lead by example. Thank you Chris for being the man you are. You are going to be a wonderful father to Easton! He is so lucky!!

35 Weeks! Getting Closer!!!

Yesterday marked the official 35 week mark. I had my last 2 week doctor appt. and from now on I start going every week. I can’t believe how close it is getting! Next week our appointment is on Wednesday and it will be an exciting appointment. We get to do another ultrasound to see if he is still measuring big. I feel like the last couple weeks he has had a growth spurt because I can just tell how much my stomach has grown and by his movement. So we shall see. I am just ready for him to get here! I want to meet him! We also have our child birth class and we get a tour of the hospital. I am starting to make a list of things to pack for the hospital and will prob. Get that packed in the next day or so. So if anyone has some suggestions (other than the normal tooth brush, make up, shampoo, etc) that they were so glad they had…please share! I am starting to get everything washed and the nursery in order. I just want to have everything ready so I can just relax and wait. Nothing else really newsy. Just seems like lately we have been tying up lose ends. On another note, I learned a lesson last night. I think I ate some mint choc. Chip ice cream too late in the evening or something. I was sound asleep last night when all of a sudden out of a dead sleep I started vomiting. I gave Chris quite a scare as he had no idea what was wrong. It was the weirdest thing ever. There were some other funny details involved but I will save those for my friends when I see you in person. TMI for the blog in my opinion. Afterwards, I was fine and woke up fine this morning. My guess is it was just really bad acid reflux. The joys of pregnancy! Ha! At least tomorrow is Friday. Another week of work down!

Car Seat Checks

This is a post to all the new mom's out there that have recently gotten their car seats checked. Where did you go? I have called around and most of the places are booked up until mid October...and I don't want to wait that long or their hours really don't work with our schedule. I made an appt. with the Denton Police Department as they have evening hours, but I REALLY don't want to drive that far. People have told me fire departments and car dealerships do them as well...but I have called around and can't find any dealerships and even though the fire department by our house does (which is the only one I can find that still does them) them..the appts. are only on Tuesdays in the middle of the day and it really doesn't mesh with my work schedule. Anyway..any input would be much appreciated. :)

33 Weeks and Counting

Finally after being off sick all last week, I am finally back to the land of the living. Thank goodness! I was going stir crazy!!! Today was also my 33 week doctor appointment. I go back again at 35 weeks and then my weekly appointments will start. I haven’t had anymore cramping in the past few weeks, so that is good. Hopefully he will keep hanging on. I am having a hard time eating very much. The heartburn is just beating me down and making it really hard to eat very much. I actually lost 2 lbs at this appt but my doctor didn’t seem concerned. At my 36 week appointment we will get another ultrasound to see how big he looks. I am starting to get really anxious…it is getting so close! I am just excited to meet this little guy. Chris asked me this weekend if I was getting nervous for the delivery part…I am not scared of the pain but more just nervous that everything goes smoothly. I just want little Easton to be ok. Well just wanted to do a quick update. I know I haven’t had very good posts lately. This weekend we have our Childcare/Infant CPR class so I may have some fun stories from that. Hope everyone had a nice and relaxing 3 day weekend this past weekend. Talk to you soon.

So I woke up Sunday not feeling very well and was full blown sick by Sunday night and been feeling like crud ever since. I just got the flu shot at my last appt. which was last Wednesday. I get the flu shot every year and never had any problems. Has anyone ever had any problems like this? I just feel so miserable.
