15 Week Visit

Yesterday was my 15 week visit to the OB and so far so good. I have gained 3 lbs and the little one was moving around as usual. This one never wants to stay still for them to check the heart rate. But after a few minutes they finally heard it and then,well it moved again. Well next month is the big visit, the day we find out what this new little one will be. The big day is January 15th, and I can't wait. The boys want to go, so Danny and are talking it over. I think this would be something that we would all cherish together. And then Trenton will see that there is only 1 baby. Other than that my iron has dropped in the last month, so they started me on iron pills. I am hoping one will do the trick, but with Austin it took 4 pills a day. So we will just see.

I hope everyone is getting ready for Christmas. Things are coming together slowly at the house. But this weekend I plan to get the shopping done, some presents wrapped, and a little cooking done.

You know it will help out a little if the people in Huntsville would learn to drive. :) It seems like these past few weeks work has been crazy. Of course the rain hasn't helped. Maybe next week will be better.

Everyone have a Wonderful Weekend!!!

Our Weekend Away

This weekend Danny and I had a little time away, with no little ones. Well except for the little one that I am carrying . :) We dropped the boys off Saturday morning with Danny's parents and we headed up to Nashville. I have to say, this was the first time the boys have ever spent the night with Danny's parents. Strange but true.

Danny and I spend Saturday shopping, shopping, and shopping some more. My feet were so--- tired by the time we made it to our room at the Radisson. And I felt like I had a cold, which I think was just allergies. So after a little rest we went to dinner and came back and crashed. Then Sunday morning we went to the Opryland Hotel and looked around and then back to OpryMills for lunch and a little more shopping. Now we were going to have breakfast at the Opryland Hotel or what they call bruch, but after seeing the price we decided that was not in our budget (it was $32 a person). So we went back to OpryMills and had an early lunch at Johnny Rockets (which cost us under $20 tax and all).

We got home yesterday afternoon around 4 and I cooked Austin his favorite dinner and Danny and I both were in bed early.

I hope everyone else had a wonderful weekend. And I hope you all have a wonderful week. I know the boys have started the countdown. And with only 10 days left till Christmas I still have lots to do.

Coen is Here!!!

My cousin Cyndel delivered a healthy little boy yesterday in an amazing 4 hours and 36 min. Not too bad for the first baby. Coen weighed 6lbs 11 ozs and was 19in long. I have to say he is a beautiful, bright eyed little boy. Mom and baby are doing great!!! I will post pics tonight hopefully! Thursday nights seem to be very busy between dinner, homework, bedtime, and Greys Anatomy.

Austin spent the weekend with his great grandparents, which if you don't know by now are Nanny and Papa. Well Austin came home last night and immediately wanted to take off his pants. His legs were itching like crazy, and when he took off his pants I understood why. He had hives all over his legs and his behind. It was the weirdest rash I have ever seen. We gave him some benadryl and put him to bed early. Well around 1o:30 or 11:00 Danny and I checked in on him. His rash that was originally on just is legs was all over his body, but looked like the chicken pox. So I am freaking out by this point. But he was sleeping so we just watched him through the night. This morning he woke up with just a few places, so I went ahead and called the doctor. He has had an allergic reaction to something, not sure what. They are going to start him on Orapred and hopefully this will be cleared up in a few days!!!

So I have enjoyed a day at home catching up on laundry!!!

I will post pics soon. I tried earlier but blogger lost my post!!! Little to say I am not too happy about that but I will try again when I have a little time. Right now I have to get back to laundry.

Tis the Season

As much as I love the Christmas season, it seems like every year gets busier and busier and I just want to find time to enjoy it. And of course being pregnant is not helping matters. Danny did get our tree up but we still have not decorated it. Hopefully this will be done Saturday morning if I can get up and get motivated! And maybe the boys and I will find a little time to do some Christmas cooking.

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving with our families. We had breakfast at my grandmothers, lunch in grant with my mom's family (which we did not eat at), and dinner with Danny's family and my mom and sisters. We had a great time with our families and the food was great. I do love being pregnant during the holidays, can you guess I want be watching what I eat. I did take some good photos so hopefully I will load those on the computer so that I can share my pics.

Well we are still waiting on the new family member to arrive. My cousin Cyndel should go into labor any day and we are all patiently waiting. They will induce next Wednesday if she doesn't have him by then. I know she is ready and I just pray that she has an easy delivery with no complications.

My sister and I did get out for Black Friday. We have done this the past few years and we love it!!! I love shopping, so I definately loved getting out and finding the good deals. The only thing I didn't like was the rude people. Now I don't make anyone get up at that time of the morning to go shopping and you have to realize that there are a lot of people shopping. Which means lines, and that requires patience. So my pet peeve on black friday, don't stand in line and gripe that there is a line!!! Everywhere I shopped they were well staffed and the workers were going as fast as they could. Maybe next year those people will stay home!!!

Other than that, the family is great. I am now 13 weeks pregnant. I am definately showing, have outgrowed most of my pants, and Trenton still thinks that there are two. Which I keep correcting and pray to God that they only see one baby on the next ultrasound.

More to come soon....
