Happy birthday Aydan!!

Today my baby turns 6 years old!  I knew he was growing up but 6...really?!  Makes me sad! 

Here's some random tid-bits about big Aydan:
  • He loves all superheroes right now.  Batman, Superman, Iron Man, Incredible Hulk, you name it, but his favorite is Spiderman.
  • He is learning to read.  This seems so crazy to me!  He started off kindergarten knowing his ABC's but not sure what sounds all the letters made.  Now he can sit down and read me a book from school.
  • He's a pretty good little dancer.  Sometimes when I have music playing in the house, he will bust out some moves and he does pretty good, lol ;)
  • He loves playing on my and Danny's phones and he's pretty quick to figure them out.
  • He is only about 1 shoe size behind his big sissy (who is 5 years older!)
  • His favorite foods are tortellini, pizza, fruit, PB & J's, and cereal.
  • His favorite color seems to change alot but he usually says red, blue, or green. :)
  • When he grows up he wants to be a Race Car Driver/ Monster Truck Driver.  Although, the other night we were watching some cooking show on Food Network where they were judging the chef's desserts.  Aydan said he wanted to be 'that guy' (the judge) when he grew up so he could try all the different desserts, lol!

We love you Aydan!!!

It's a......


We had our sonogram on December 20th and we did find out that our little baby is a boy!  I will say I am not surprised.  I kind of had a feeling that he was gonna be a little boy.  We are all so excited and can't wait for him to arrive.

This week, I am 26 weeks, which means I have about 14 weeks left to go.  9 months is a long time to be pregnant lol!  I feel so big already; I can't believe I still have more growing to do!  As of my last appointment almost 2 weeks ago (I was 24 weeks along), I have gained a total of 15 pounds, which I really don't think is too bad.  I usually gain 30-35 pounds total so I feel like that part is pretty much on track.  Its just all in my belly. I am getting sick of all my clothes and I feel like even my maternity clothes are getting too small. I get comments all the time from people who say I look further along than I am and one lady even asked me if I was having twins.  Really...thanks!  Oh well, he will be here soon enough!

Other than that, things have been going pretty smoothly.  Just your typical pregnancy aches and pains now and then but overall I feel pretty good.  Sleeping at night has been a little difficult.  I feel like I toss from one side to the other all night.

My next appointment is Feb 14, Valentines Day.  I have my glucose test then as well.  Wish me luck! :)
