32w0d: We Have An Induction Date

We are 32wks today!! Christy had her OB appointment today and everything was perfect again! Measuring 32cm so Dr. was thrilled with that. Christy said he is moving like he should and she hasn't had any issues with her gallbladder so things are moving along nicely. The Dr also gave us the induction date! He gave us two options for dates and we chose the earlier one since the other was the day before Thanksgiving (EEK!). This means the induction is scheduled for November 16th! He said it is not set in stone, but he is scheduling it for this date. I can live with that, at least now hubs can put his notice in at work and give them ample advance notice. That means we head to Texas in 6 weeks and 4 days people!! Holy cow!!! We still have some last minute things we need to do, but I have a feeling there are always gonna be a few last minute things to do! We will be as ready as we can be. If you think of anything we need to take with us leave me a message in the comments! My list so far is:

Bag for Greyson (clothes, onesies, socks, bibs)
Moses Basket from Bassinet
Clothes for us

We won't be in TX too long, because hubs can't take off too long from work, so the list isn't long of what I think we need to take, but I know I could be missing something important!

Will add picture of Christy at 32wks when I get it later on!

My 2nd Graduate

My youngest son (soon to be the middle child) is a senior this year! He had his pictures done over the summer and I recently got to see the proofs, so I wanted to share a few of my favorite shots with you guys! Such a handsome dude, if I say so myself!

Graduation is fast approaching, Eek!  I still can't believe we will have TWO kids graduated soon!! They have come a long way since this:

31w0d: 2nd Baby Shower

Yesterday we had our 2nd baby shower with lots of friends that weren't able to make it to the shower that Rebekah gave us. Once again we had an AWESOME time! This shower was a liiiitle different. There were couples there and it was hosted by Jennifer my former neighbor (and sweet friend!). When we first moved into our house almost 3 yrs ago, we met Jennifer and Jose and they had two little ones a boy and girl a little over 1yo and 6yo. Since our kids were so much older, we didn't go to a lot of functions that they threw for the kids, but when they had "grown up" parties we were always there and I was "on deck" for setup and clean up. So over the last 3 yrs we have become good friends and I love them dearly. Through them we have made other friends and we were very surprised and overwhelmed with how many of them turned out on a Friday night to help us celebrate Greyson. Even the guys! 

So this was not just a shower, it was a PARTY!! There was drinking, laughing, games, (I still say some cheating, no way I only won at ONE GAME! LOL!) LOTS of food and sweets!! And gifts! So many gifts!! I told John we need another nursery just for all the stuff Greyson has received, LOL! I think we are ready for his arrival now... Well as ready as two people who stay up until 2AM and get up at 10AM can be, HAHAHA! Yeah.. We need to work on our own schedule ASAP! This coming Friday is our 32 week appointment and hopefully we will get the induction date and get this show on the road! Til then, enjoy your weekend everyone! xoxo

Well, this week was very uneventful! Christy had her OB appt. and everything was great. OB said no diabetes (YAY!) and no anemia (double YAY!). Greyson's growth has also slowed down and he is no longer measuring a week ahead, he is measuring right on track now, so we are curious to see just how big he is going to be! My guess is around 7.5lbs... We still don't have the induction date, OB didn't have the schedule yet and said he should have it at her next visit in two weeks. Frustrating to not have the info so we can start planning John's days off with his job and getting things in order here with the kids as far as Thanksgiving goes, especially since we don't have much time to work with in the first place (We are driving there and back) No matter, all of that will be small potatoes once Greyson is here! Not a lot of anything else going on, just marking time until we head to Texas! Down to the SINGLE DIGITS for weeks people!!! :-D :-D

29w1d: Baby Shower & Baby Bump

Today was my first baby shower! I HAD A WONDERFUL TIME!!!! I don't know why I was so worried! It was awesome. Everyone had a great time and Greyson got so many things! Everyone laughed and talked like we had known each other for years, it was really a great time! Rebekah got here Friday early evening and we got in party mode right away, doing prep for today. Everything was smooth sailing today too, she did an amazing job hosting! I think we need a storage room for all of Greyson's things, this kid is set! Here are a few shots from today:

Diaper Cake, my Dad thought it was real cake, HAHA!

Welcome Greyson

Sitting: Rebekah, Me, Amanda, Sarah, Kneeling: Tullina, Katie

Gifts for Greyson!

John and I with Greyson's treasure's!

Speaking of Mr. Greyson he seems to be growing bigger here towards the end and making his presence known! Christy is still doing well with her gallstones too! Here is the latest pic for 29 weeks (yesterday) We will be heading to TX before you know it to pick up little man!

As if the partying for the baby shower wasn't enough, a group of friends that couldn't make it due to a birthday dinner obligation decided to throw us a shower as well and that is in two weeks! So more partying is gonna be coming our way! I am gonna need a vacation to recover from all this partying! After the shower today, we made a quick stop to see the group that couldn't make it for a quick surprise party for the birthday girl! She was surprised and really shocked to see us there, it was so cute, we all yelled "SURPRISE!!!" and she said, "Oh my God! Even Tonya is here!!!" LOL!! Everyone laughed! I found out an important lesson today too, kids.. DON'T GO 19 hrs without pumping!!! By the time I sat down to pump today, my bra was wet and I was about to cry from engorgement.. NOT COOL.. I was having too much fun to worry about little things like pumping (insert the D'oh! and forehead slap here) Yeah so I got that sorted out and now I am feeling much better... Can y'all believe we only have TEN WEEKS until we meet Greyson?!?!?! EEEEEE!!!! I am still in disbelief! I still feel like I have a ton to do to get ready for him!! I know it will all get done though so I am not overly worried... Anywho, we will have a couple weeks to settle down before we are back on the roller-coaster again! So as of now we are on Greyson Countdown...

28w1d: A Busy Week!

We made it! The third trimester is a wonderful place to be! Christy heard back from the OB and she definitely has gallstones.. In fact he said her gallbladder is FULL of them.. So for now, since she is maintaining with diet, she is OK, she just has to be on the look out since she is prone to an infection he said. Gave her instructions to head to ER if any fever or persistent pain. We are praying it's just smooth sailing from here on out, until she can deliver though. This past week was a busy one! My sister was in town with my 12 year old niece. We had a really great time visiting! The weather wasn't very nice (Thanks TS Isaac!.. NOT!) but we still managed to get in some shopping and girl time! They left this morning and I sure am gonna miss them!

Now it's time to get ready for the baby shower and SMO get together! Rebekah will be here in less than a week, OMG!! I am so excited to see her again! Beka has not divulged any of the details of the shower to me, I gave her full creative license, so it's a surprise to me! All this week boxes have been coming in with goodies for Greyson, it's been surreal to open a box and see all the cute little baby things, knowing it's for our new addition! I think this kid is gonna need a separate room just for his new things, lol!!

This next week will be spent touch up cleaning my house for the shower and doing some rearranging, gonna be another busy week! I wanted to thank all of you who commented on the gallstones post and for your ideas on things Christy could do to ease her pain, we really appreciated it! On the Greyson front, Christy said it's getting hard to bend over or pick things up that are low down.. I think the most uncomfortable part is starting right now.. Hopefully she doesn't suffer too badly! Well that's about all I have for now. Will update with lots of pictures from the shower next week! Til next time!
