Yesterday at 3 we got free rodeo tickets to Brad Paisley!! That's not the milestone, but it was a wonderful blessing for Eric and I to go out alone, for the first time in months!! We usually go to him every year, but this year 'decided' (by not buying any tickets) to just stay home and 'cut back.' Well, when a friend posted she wasn't using her free tickets last night, we jumped on them. Thank you Brenda D!!
So, I was 16 weeks pregnant yesterday. I was starting to feel weird about my pregnancy, like it's not real yet. I've had 2 ultrasounds (thanks hospital stay) and have heard the heart beat, but I've lost weight, I don't feel like I 'look' pregnant yet (I bet Sterling disagrees, haha!) and I haven't felt the baby move. I felt Cara very late, thanks to surgery, at 22 weeks. I felt Micah at 15 weeks 6 days, so I just figured I'd feel this one move earlier than Micah. Not the case. I wasn't worrying, just very much looking forward to it. Well, jamming out to some amazing electric guitar last night at the concert, baby #3 decided to make it's presence known!! I was so excited!! And it wasn't just my body shaking from all the noise, it was definitely the baby, and he/she did it again later that night on our way home too!!
Oh, I want to go on record saying I have NO idea what we're having!! We find out in 2 weeks. With both kids, I KNEW. Like at least a month before the ultrasound. This one, not so sure. I really wanted a girl, then I really thought it was a boy, and now I'm torn again. Just not sure. Heart rate has been 158 and 150 lately, so kinda in between (Cara was always 155-170 and micah was always 135-150)????
Cara is such a little mommy. She is so fun to be around, most of the time. She likes to boss everyone around, which she gets from her dad ;). She is very loving and quick to say she's sorry and forgive. With all that's been going on with Bailey and the twins, she is so grown up for her age. And beyond sweet. She loves her cousins, and can't wait to meet baby Jack!! (sorry for the poor quality webcam shots, I haven't downloaded pics in awhile).
Micah is all boy, into everything, and climbing now! I found him on the 3rd rung headed to the top bunk the other day. I just don't know what to do. I don't want him to fall, but I also want him to be completely comfortable climbing up without falling by the time we move him to the bottom bunk this summer. So, I stood behind him and let him crawl on up. You'd have thought I'd given the boy a million dollars. He was SO happy to be up there playing with sister!! I just have to keep him SITTING down!! Now sister has lost her spot where she can go play with her tiny things without him getting into them. He's also very into the bathroom business. Whenever Cara, Eric or I are on the potty (we are down to one bathroom as we started demo on our master bath a month or more ago and it's still sitting there unfinished), he wants to be with us saying peepee or poopoo. And now, when he has a BM, he comes to me and says poopoo. This morning he told me, I looked, and didn't see anything. I said let's play with our cars, so we started playing, but he was having none of it. So I thought I'd just change his diaper anyway. Sure enough, there was a BM!! Good boy! :)
