28 Weeks

How Far Along: 28 Weeks
Size of baby: 15" long, 2 lbs 8 oz (sonogram weight)
Maternity Clothes: Maternity clothes, regular dresses
Gender: Girl - Landry Belle
Movement: Oh yeah, she loves to move around in the car with the music on and later at night. She is learning how to really move forcefully.
What I miss: Good night's sleep and not feeling huge, no having to go to the bathroom every 1 1/2
What I'm enjoying: I got her curtains for her room last week, beautiful (thanks Meemee)
Symptoms: Acid reflux
Cravings: Cereal
Exciting Moments: My mom came with me to my 3D sonogram last Thursday, so we got to see Miss Landry's face. She's a cutie, but I'm kind of bias. The doctor said that she is measuring in the 63% percentile for weight but she has long legs. It's amazing to see how much she has grown in 1 month. I don't have another sonogram till October, but I have an appt with the endo and OB on September 22nd. The OB said we would set a date for sure for the C-section!!!

Sharing.....a cold

The concentration look

She loves the slide

On Thursday Addison decided to start getting a cold. As soon as I noticed that she was getting a cold, we checked to see what the policy was at MDO about colds. Well, it's pretty clear...any sign of a cold they are not to come. So she missed MDO on Friday (only the 2nd day).

If you have children you know, once one person gets sick it seems to spread. Friday morning I woke up with a scratchy throat, and then on Saturday Jordan started getting sick. So our Labor Day weekend consisted of everyone staying close to the house and getting over colds, which we're all still battling. Since I'm pregnant and Addison is so little there isn't a lot that we can take. I can only imagine what this winter is going to bring with a little one. I'm so glad that Addison doesn't go to daycare, because it could be a lot more frequent.

I was so excited about Labor Day weekend and all of the cool stuff we could have done but we stuck mainly to the park in the neighborhood. I snapped a few shots. Addison is really starting to want to climb on everything, especially the foot of her daddy's recliner.

Scrounging for Food

Addison is constantly in the pantry being nosey or looking for something to eat. I was getting dinner ready the other night and I noticed that it was quite. She had gotten into the Fruit Loops. I guess I need to get a little bit faster at getting dinner ready.

26 Weeks: Baby Landry

How Far Along: 26 Weeks
Size of baby: 14" long, 1 2/3 lb
Maternity Clothes: Mainly maternity clothes and regular dresses (wish there was more selection with maternity clothes that didn't cost an arm and a leg)
Gender: Girl - Landry Belle
Movement: Oh yeah, she loves to move around in the car with the music on and later at night. She is learning how to really move forcefully.
What I miss: Good night's sleep and not feeling huge
What I'm enjoying: People are so nice to pregnant women. Love it. Feeling Landry kick.
Symptoms: None.
Cravings: Fruit Loop Cereral
Exciting Moments: ordered a vinyl wall covering and rug for her room last week, OB said at the next appointment we'll set up the date for the c-section, 3D sonogram next Thursday

I went to the OB yesterday for a routine checkup. It had been 5 weeks since the last visit, so I knew that I had grown. Well, my belly measurement and the scale confirmed it. I'm measuring between 27-28 weeks and I had gained 4 pounds in 5 weeks. Let's just say, I'm not used to this. I only gained 24 lbs with Addison so this is kind of new to me. I told Jordan I've really got to start watching what I eat. The OB said that she's not concerned right now and just wait to see how the sonogram goes next week to get exact measurements.

1st Day at Mother's Day Out

Addison started Mother's Day Out yesterday. Jordan and I decided that she needed more interaction with other kids her age, besides Sunday School and it would give Gingy a break during the week.

To give some background, Addison is going to MDO at the same church that we attend. So this past Sunday when we went to drop her off at Sunday School she was terrified. She cried and cried and the worker held her the entire time. So needless to say, I was worried about how yesterday morning would go.

Addison got up and had her favorite breakfast, raisin bread and I got her ready for school. She woke up in a great mood, so I thought to myself "this is going to be okay."
She wouldn't stay still for a picture, so she was running towards the camera

Headed to MDO

Her MDO starts at 9:15a, so we got there a little early. She started getting very anxious when we walked into the church nursery area. I'm really starting to kind of get nervous at this point that this could go downhill and fast. So we get to her room (same room as Sunday School) and she starts bawling. The head lady for her room comes and picks her up and tells me that Addison needs to see that I am okay with her picking her up. So she distracts her with the toys and Addison stops crying. I sneak out of the room and wait by the door for a little bit to hear that she has stopped crying. Whew....I think we're going to make it.

Well, we made it. I can't seem to download pdf files onto the blog, so I'll recap what she received in her folder today.

Lunch: at some, but ate snacks well
Nap: took 45 minute nap (they rub some lotion on their feet make them go to sleep)
Activities: played outside, loved the slide, learned this week's Bible verse and quote

Daddy & Me

Every night now, Addison wants to sit in her daddy's lap. She runs up to his chair and raises her arms and waits for him to pick her up. As soon as she gets up there, she finds the remote and raises it up so he can see it and says "uhhh." Uhhhh translated means, please turn to Nick Jr and not sports. Jordan, being the good daddy he is, kindly changes the channel. Once Nick Jr is on they are either snuggled up together or he's letting her jump up and down on the chair to the music. Watching this every night truly melts my heart. Tears come to my eyes every time. Thank you Jordan for being such a fun-loving father to Addison. She thinks you hung the moon.

Ready Whip & MeeMaw

Stack of Ready Whip after her waffle

Addison & Meemaw with the Ready Whip watching Dora

This past weekend, my mom came in to hang out with us and watch Addison while we went to a wedding on Saturday. Of course, Addison loves her Meemaw because they constantly are playing around. Saturday morning we made waffles with strawberries and whip cream. Addison loved the Ready Whip. My mom let her sit in her lap while she squirted Ready Whip in her mouth. She probably had 10 good swigs of Ready Whip by the time she was done. Oh, the joy of being a grandma.
