Here we are at 36wks! Today was an awesome day! The OB did an ultrasound and guesstimated that Greyson is around 5.5lbs right now! So we are thinking he will be around 7lbs at birth.. My brother in law was awesome enough to video the ultrasound for us, so we got to have a look at our little guy! Can't believe in 21 days we will be holding him in our arms! The days are really flying by.. 

We are taking advantage of the down time and having garage sales to clear out some clutter and it's been going really well. Of course we are saving most of the money to use for our travel, but we also picked up a few last minute things we needed for Greyson so win-win!

Christy thinks based on Greyson's size she will have an easy time delivering him (Let's pray so!) that would be great for her, so send some positive easy labor/delivery vibes her way everyone! Not much else going on, just ticking off the days until we head out. The Step B test was done today, so I guess they will give Christy the results and that's about it. DOWN TO THE WIRE!!! EEEEEE!!! :) :) :)

Oh a shout out to Leah for saving my butt by sending me her leftover Dom so I can continue to induce lactation! Thanks Girl!! 

 OK, off to watch some Shark Tank with hubby! Until next week! Enjoy your weekend!

Not a big update, since this is the boring part, the WAITING! We hit 35wks Friday! I am still in Miami and will be here for another 2 weeks. Things are going well here for my friend so I am very thankful for that! Christy had another attack of her gallstones this past week, so she checked another food item off her list she can't eat. Other than that things have been pretty much status quo. The highlight of my week has been the video that Christy posted for me of Greyson moving! I can't stop watching it! This boy is such a mover, it's so amazing... We cannot wait until we are holding him in our arms.. Enjoy the video and the rest of your weekend! Next week is our 36wk appointment and we are having an ultrasound, so I should have some good details to share! Until next time!!

Hey y'all another weekly update! We hit 34 weeks yesterday! 5 weeks until we meet our little boy!! Christy had an OB appointment yesterday and everything was looking great. Measuring right on track, with a good heart-rate of around 144bpm. Next visit he will be doing an ultrasound to get a concrete estimate of how much Greyson weighs.. He said just based on how Christy's uterus is measuring he estimates he will be upper 7's to low 8's. (YAY!!) CANNOT WAIT FOR NEXT VISIT!! Christy thought she had an ear infection, but turns out she is suffering from allergies (BOO!) OB said take some Claritin-D. Hubs and I thought that was funny (not that she's suffering!!) that she's carrying our baby and  we BOTH have terrible allergies and now Christy has them! 

In other news I am in Miami! I have been here since Tuesday . My sweet friend Janine, found out she needed strict bed-rest and I drove down here to stay with her for the next 3 weeks to take care of her until she reaches viability! I would stay longer if I could but since we have to drive to get Greyson, that will give me about 10-11 days to get our bags situated and any other things done around home before we head out.. We are having a good time hanging out and getting to gossip and know each other in person.. YEP, you read that right, this was our first meeting in person!! I LOVE HER TONS, she is like my sister and we have talked almost daily on the phone and by text, so it was so good to finally get to hug the person connected to the voice on the other end of the phone..

My youngest son is handling the cooking and my oldest is taking care of the laundry (they are such good boys!). They are making sure their Dad is all taken care of while Mom is away.. So thankful I have great kids! I have to say though, I miss my hubby to sooo much! I miss my boys, but I hardly ever see them since they are teens, they are always doing their own thing, LOL, but hubby is my partner in crime and we are pretty much always hanging out if he isn't at work! A few weeks apart will make it so much sweeter when I get home I think.. Not much else going on (Who am I kidding, that's plenty!) but things are going good with Greyson and that makes me one happy Mommy! I hope everyone enjoys their weekend, til next time!

Another week down y'all! Can't believe we have SIX weeks left until we meet our son! We have been steadily checking things off of our list and asking friends that have babies what was the thing they couldn't do without, in hopes of having everything we can possibly think of on hand (and during our trip home with Greyson) I think we are pretty good to go. We took my van in to have it looked at, to make sure it was ready for a long trip. It got a clean bill of health, so that was the last major thing to be checked off! The last thing I will do is pack our bags, but that's not for a few weeks yet.. 

In other news, my freezer is almost FULL! I have come a looong way since my first pumping days.. I have had some ups and downs with inducing, but I am glad it has worked out as well as it has.. Ultimately I think Greyson will have to be supplemented with formula, BUT he will get breastmilk for as long as possible. My stash looked like this before:

Early days of pumping

 And this is what my deep freezer looks like now:
3 more bags can go in and maybe 2 more can lay on top!

 I have actually stopped pumping as many times a day and cut back what i am freezing to 6oz a day, otherwise my freezer would be full already and I would be throwing milk out, something I hate to do. This is the best of both worlds, I can still pump and freeze, but at a slower rate. 

Aaand in more other news. I have most of Greyson's newborn and 0-3mos clothes washed and put away (So much fun and I smiled the entire time)...
 At my 2nd baby shower, my friend got him this adorable outfit to wear for Christmas and I CANNOT WAIT!:
Santa feet!

Santa butt! I die at the cuteness!

Lately, I fantasize about who he is going to look like! I look at John's baby picture and my baby picture and wonder if he will have my eyes or his dad's.. I know already from the u/s pic that he has his daddy's nose! Cannot wait to see his sweet face! So yeah, I have been looking at these two pictures ALOT!
Greyson's nose looks just like this now!

Hopefully he doesn't have my big ol' head!

Last but not least, things are just boring right now (which is a good thing) nothing to report until next Friday, when she has another OB appt. She said she is ready for him to be evicted though, he's wearing out his welcome, so it's a good thing we are getting close to the end, LOL! I will leave you with the 33 week picture from this afternoon that Christy sent me! 

OK, until next week! Enjoy your weekend!
