A's Big Boy Room!

I told you to be prepared for lots of posts since I am getting caught-up!

Finally, I have pictures of his big boy room. I had so much fun putting this together. I went with more of a transportation theme than originally planned, but he loves cars, trucks, planes, trains, etc., and I love the pure joy on his face when he sees them in his room!

My husband wanted me to clarify something of most importance.... the Big Red "A" does not stand for Alabama. It is for A's initial. There will never be any Roll Tide paraphenalia on the premises here... its Auburn all the way to the grave :)

Why A doesn't sleep in a crib anymore.....

I was trying to post this slide show within the text of this post, but I can't quite figure it out... I"ll be reaching out to some of my more blog savvy friends on this.

Anyway, enjoy the pics of this wild man in his element!

Expect more posts... I"m finally getting all of my pictures uploaded to the computer!

Foot Loose and Cast Free!!!!

A got his cast off today! After 4 weeks of inhibited mobility, he is thrilled to be cast free! And so are we.

Thankfully, his leg is healed and the only sign at this point is a small limp which should be gone in a few weeks. Enjoy the cast pictures!

Another Boy!

My sister Brittany, whom A affectionately calls Aunt T.T., is also pregnant and is due 3 weeks after me. She found out yesterday that she is having a boy!!!

So I have 3 nephews and two sons. It looks like the 18 year streak of girls only in my family is broken. Maybe one of these days I'll get to buy some cute girl clothes for somebody!!!

These boys sure are sweet though! And they love their mommies.... that's the best part :)

I got a very good report from the specialist yesterday.

He said that my amniotic fluid appears to be in normal range. He threw out some numbers, but they didn't really mean anything to me because he was taking different measurements than the ultrasound technician last week at my OB's office. So I don't really know how much the fluids have increased, but apparently bed rest and drinking 16+ glasses of water a day is helping. I'm very relieved to find out that it was my over exertion that was causing the issue and not some greater problem.

I have to maintain the bed rest schedule at least until I go back to my OB in 3 weeks. I'm hoping she may lift some of the at home restrictions. Thank you for your prayers!

Appointment Tomorrow

I have an appointment tomorrow with the perinatal specialist at 2:15. Please pray that everything is normal and that my fluid levels have increased from last week. I have been drinking water until I can't stand to take another sip!

I'll update you tomorrow!

A friend of mine shared something that I felt was worthy of passing along.

Her son had a stomach virus last week and couldn't keep anything down. When she took him to the doctor, he told her to think of B.R.A.T. in those situations:


All of those things are easy on the tummy and will still provide nutrition to a sick child!

Yesterday made 2 weeks since we moved A into his big boy room and twin bed.

Tomorrow makes 1 week that A has been in a cast.

Today marks the end of my first full weekend of bed rest. If my boss wasn't such a horrible wretch of a person right now, I might actually look forward to going to work tomorrow!

A is sleeping well in his new bed, but I think part of that has to do with the fact that he still refuses to walk. I"ll be curious to see how this goes next week when he gets his cast off. Bedtime is going easier and he's not waking up as much at night now. If something good did come out of his broken leg, I"m hoping its that he has learned he can sleep all night in his new room.

He goes back to the doctor next Monday to have the cast removed and more x-rays. The ortho was hopeful that he wouldn't need another cast. Hubs will have to take him to that appointment as I am on doctor's orders to go to work and then home to bed. It makes me sad not to be there, but I have to think of baby #2 also!

It looks like my boss has come up with a new schedule for me that complies with the 32/hrs week rule - 8hrs Monday and 6 hours for the other 4 days of the week. We'll see how the first full week goes starting tomorrow!
