Great Weekend.

Day 20
Sorry for the lack of posting. As I had mentioned in an earlier post we were going to be at mom and dads for the weekend. Lets just say it was a little caotic and I didnt have time to come up with a december post.

The only thing that my mom asked for, for Christmas was a picture of her 12 Grandkids all together wearing their cute Elf jammies. That was much easier said then done. We got them all in their cute Jams and asked them to sit on the couch. Zion who usually loves getting his picture is screaming and running into the other room hiding in the corner saying "No pictures no pictures" So this is the best we came up with Grandma.
Eli(7) Beck (18m) Pixie(7) Bennett (1m) Billie(4) Evan(9m) Zion(2) Addison(4) Milan(4) Cassi(2) Joe(4) Cale(4)
I have to say I dont blame Zion for not wanting his picture taken when this paparazzi is after you.
We then went to the other room to open presents. The kids were all crazy so we asked them to sit in front of the Christmas tree and wait. we then got this wonderful picture minus Joe, who was smart and was taking a nap in the other room.

Dec 15.

I cant wait to go "home" tomorrow. I like it here in Robinson, but walton will always be home. Tomorrow night Kerry and her family will be at mom and dads too. Addison cant wait to see girl cousins. Friday morning, im taking the three kids and we are going to Flora for Buble study. I doubt there will be much studing going on. I miss those ladies sooo much. Friday afternoon we are going to my nephew Joes birthday party. Then we are going to finish off the evening with a Carroll Cougars Basketball game. I cant wait to see everyone and a good ball game. Saturday we are having Christmas at mom and dads family galore. 12 kids rnging in age from 7 to 4 weeks! So i will probably miss a day or two of posts but will have plenty to catch up with! have a good weekend.

Day 10

Very Blessed to have this gift under my tree and in my arms this Christmas.

Thursday, December 9, 2010

Finally finished

Day 9
Adam thought it would be a good idea to do a puzzle with Addison. Why he chose a 1000 peice puzzle I dont know. They got it out on Saturday and Addison helped by turning over about 8 peices and then was done. Adam and I on the other hand could not stop worring about the puzzle. We worked on it all the time, often times neglecting our older kids wants. We finally finished it last night.

Day 8
"Brothers dont shake hands, Brothers gotta Hug"
Zion doesnt ask to hold Bennett or touch him too much, most of the time he pretty much ignors the fact that he is here. On the rare occasion that he wants to see him he is the sweetest big brother ever. He is so gental and loving. Melts a mama's heart.

2 weeks old

day 3

Today Bennett is 2 weeks old. He went to the Dr and everything is great!
He is up to 6lbs 10oz, that is what Addison was when she was born. He has the sweetest little birth mark on his eyelid, that the doctor said might fade away as he gets older. We scheduled his ultrasound for his kidney for the first week of January to see what if anything is going on there. other then that he is a happy healthy TINY guy.

update from todays apt.

We had a great trip to the Maternal Fetal specialist today. After about at 40 minute ultrasound and over 100 pictures/ measurements later. We met with the doc. She said that the baby was looking really good. My fluid levels are in normal range. Baby is measuring a little big but nothing to worry about. Im worried that his head is measuing at 38 weeks and the rest of him is at 34 weeks but oh well. He is weighing in at about 5 lbs 12 oz and is practicing his breathing. His head is down, his stomach is all the way on my hip and his butt is under my ribs. They did find out that his kidneys are enlarged. They are measuring an inch bigger then what they should be. Most kidneys have one exit into the bladder and his have two. Which means that his bladder fills up twice as fast. There is nothing that they do about this. She just reccomended getting an ultra sound done on him 1 or 2 months after he is born to check them out. So now we can relax and not have to worry about every movement. They said that the fundal height measurement that they do in the Dr. Office is only correct about 30% of the time, it just depends on how the baby is being carried and its position. So hopefully my 47 week measurement does not keep increasing.

Introducing our baby!

Hurry up and wait. Im sitting here waiting on the phone to ring, with my apt for the maternal fetal specialist. It will either be today or tomorrow. Hopefully tomorrow so there will be time for the in-laws to get here.
So here is the update as of Friday:
On Friday the 15th I was measuring 36 weeks pregnant, at the time I should be measuring 32 weeks. Fast forward to Friday the 22nd. At 33 weeks I was measuring 47 weeks pregnant. For those that dont know a human gestetion is between 37-40 weeks. Therefor I am currently the Gestation of a Donkey, but still have 7 more weeks to go, at this rate I will be 117 weeks pregnant by the time of delivery. That is a longer gestation then an elephant.
Anyway, We are hopefull for some answers from the specialist. They are thinking that I have quite a bit of Extra fluid. After the specialist apt. We will have a plan of attack.

Fridays Apt

Don't worry about anything; instead pray about everything. Philippians 4:6
I keep trying to keep this verse in my head, but it sure is heard.
Through out this pregnancy I have always felt BIG, much bigger then my last two pregnancies, I have kept saying to myself it is just because it is my third baby. Each time at the Dr. I have been measuring a little bit bigger but only by one or two weeks nothing to really worry about. On Monday I had an Ultrasound to see how big the baby was due to measuring a little big each time. Baby looked great he was measuring about 34 weeks 3 days, I was technically 32 weeks 2 days so a little big but nothing to be concerned about. The ultra sound tech kept saying how wonderful everything looked.
Move ahead to Friday at my Dr. apt. I get there about 1:15 for my 1:30 apt. thinking maybe if I get here a little early I can be seen a little early and we can get on the road to head to mom and dads. Not the case, they pass by me. After a girl checks in saying that her apt is at 2:15 and she gets called back before me I go ask the desk, they then get me right in.
Normal procedure pee in a cup, get weighed check babys heart rate and my Blood pressure, everything looks great! Then she goes to measure my fundal height, she measures it once, measures it twice, and then measures it for a third time... Then she asks you are 32 weeks right. I say yes. I say why, she says well I have you measuring at 40 weeks. WOW 40 weeks... That means between Monday and Friday the little man grew 7 weeks worth. The Dr. then comes in and double checks the measurement and he says its measuring 40 weeks but he can push it back to 37 whatever that means. He then begins to go over the Ultra sound and discovers that my amniotic fluid is elevated. Not too much but still enough to be concerned about. One cause of this could be gestestational Diabetes, I passed my one hour Glucose test with Flying colors, I'm not exactly sure what the numbers were but they were great. So to help rule that out I go Tuesday to take the 3 hour test, just to make sure that isn't it. They will also run some extra tests on the blood to check things out. I then will go back to the Dr. Every Friday for a Non Stress test and more measurements to see whats going on and for another ultra sound on the 1st of November.
I have found Google to be my enemy. So now I am just trying to worry about nothing and pray about everything. But man it sure is hard.

This cute tiny Tutu that can double as a hat

Finished Addison's room.. The walls are now Pink you cant really tell.

A Z shirt for Zion

A G Shirt for a special Baby girl with a matching Tutu

just the G Shirt

And while I was being so Domestic, Sitting on the floor of my craft room thinking about how I wish I knew more little girs so I could make cute girly clothes, and thinking about how I hope that Addison gets invited to some birthday parties soon because it would be super cute to make tutus as gifts. My kids were playing ever so nicely together.... or so I thought.

This is why the rest of the house always "looks" put together.
