Mustache Bash

Last Saturday, our parents hosted a mustache themed celebration for our little guy!!!  It was such a lovely shower!!! This little boy is so loved and spoiled already :) Here are a few pictures to document that day...

Update: Today I am 31 weeks (and a day!). So far so good. I stop working next week. At next week's appt we are getting another growth scan to see how big he is getting. I am slowing down for sure! Sticking my finger four times a day for the GD definitely sucks...again. But it is what it is. The nesting/crazy feeling to organize and be prepared is in full force :) Not sure if I mentioned in my last post but we are scheduled for a c-section on May 21st. But to be honest, I do not think we will go that long! My guess is end of April/early May.

Samantha Roselyn turns two!!!

Last Saturday our little mouse turned TWO!!! So of course we had to throw her a party :) We chose a Minnie Mouse theme. My in-laws were so kind to host it at their house. We had quite the turn out of adults and little kids! It was a bit crazy...but a lot of fun :) We even hired a music guy who comes with his guitar and sings silly kid songs!!! I can't believe she's two! I swear the day after her birthday she just LOOKED older!

Here are some pictures!




















Things are going well with baby boy! I am 29 weeks today. I had my growth scan on Tuesday and the babe is 3lbs 6oz and in the 73rd percentile already!! I am scheduling the date for my c-section next week. If all goes well and he stays put...his birthday should be the week of May 19th. Sadly, I failed my 3 hr glucose and I have GD again! Booooo :( But overall things are good and we are getting excited to meet this little guy :)

Picture Post

Here are a few recent pictures of my girl! :)

Things have been so busy here. Preparing for Samantha's 2nd birthday next week (GASP! Can't believe she will be 2...and yes I will probably say this about every birthday!). And we are preparing for baby boy's arrival (which in my heart of hearts I think he will come early). So between all of this..and working...and chasing a toddler...and weekly OB appts....things are busy and exhausting here!

I haven't been feeling so great. I am already so big and heavy that it's taking a toll on my 5'0 frame body. I will be 28 weeks this week. Lots of tests coming up. The 3 hr glucose and growth scan. Soon I will be down to just the progesterone shots once a week but no more cervix checks. So far my BP is okay but I am feeling worse this time around. Weird. I actually passed the one hr glucose this pregnancy, but since I had GD with Samantha, they want me to still do the 3 hr. I am praying this little guy makes it close to full term...but if I'm being honest I think he will be an early bird as well. I have been nesting quite a bit when I can...just want to make sure everything is in order if (IF!) he comes early.

Anyways, stayed tuned for Samantha's birthday party post next week! :)

Update

Hi!

Remember me? lol

Just stopping by to give you all (or whoever is still following!) a quick update on my life over here :)

I do try to read and comment still as much as I can, but you know, the toddler in my life and the baby in my belly have been hoarding all my time and energy :)

Here goes!

-Samantha had RSV two weeks ago :( She was SO very sick! It was really hard to see. I felt so bad for my baby girl. She ended up spending two nights/three days at the hospital. She was sick for about ten days total :( Thankfully, she is better now! And back to herself!!!

-She also turned 23 months two days ago! She is this little joy walking around...talking...laughing..playing...JOY! Seriously, there is something new every day. I just love her little personality and my heart explodes daily just being around her and watching/listening to her! Of course, she is still a toddler and has her tantrum moments! haha And she still has some stranger anxiety in big groups. It usually takes her a bit to warm up still.

-In a few weeks she will be TWO!!! Unreal!!! We are throwing her a Minnie Mouse themed party :)

- We recently moved her to a big girl bed :( I had a really hard time with this. I wasn't ready. Definitely shed some tears. But we need the crib for baby boy and wanted to get a start on the big girl bed and not wait until right before little brother arrives. She was not sleeping so great in the crib to begin with (about half the night in crib, half the night with us) so we knew this change wouldn't probably go so well. She is doing the same...half the night in the bed...half with us. But lately, her time in the bed is getting shorter and shorter :( However, she did nap today in her big girl bed for two hours, so that's a start! We will get there. She does love her bed though...loves to sit on it and talk about it etc.

- I love Winter...love the cold and snow! I really enjoy experiencing all the seasons here in upstate NY. But this year I am itching for spring and summer. Mostly because I have a toddler who loves to play outside!!! She's been out in the snow a few times and loves it. But some days its just too cold!

-Baby boy update! So far so good. Still going weekly for my cervix checks and progesterone shots. I will 25 weeks this Wednesday! Some days I feel as if its flying by...but most days I feel like the calendar isn't moving! We are trying to prepare for his arrival but it's tough with another little one in your life. No time to dote on this pregnancy like I did with Samantha. So sometimes I feel bad about that for the little man. But will be sure to give him extra love when he arrives. I was especially excited for last week...24 weeks (viability!). Of course after Samantha's early arrival I have been worried about another preemie. But just praying and keeping the hope that he will be full term or very close to it :) He is quite the kicker! I feel him so much more than I did with Sam! Oh and I have to pee about every 25 minutes...no joke...but all worth it :)

I'll leave you all with some pics of my sweet pea....

Cheese!

Clap Clap Clap!

Big girl bed! We've since added a box spring. I didn't like the gap between the mattress and headboard. The big girl bed was a gift from her Nana for her upcoming 2nd birthday!

Some indoor snow play!
