Quick updates

Sorry it has been a few weeks since I posted! Here are a few updates in case you care ;-)


His 15 month check-up:

24 lbs
33 inches long

Everything is going well with our little man! The doctor joked that she was going to take his chart and show it to the medical students because his stats are "textbook." At his last appointment his weight was so low compared to his height, I was a little worried. She told me that once he started walking and running around, he would even out. And he did! His weight is still int he 45 percentile, and his height is in the 85-90 percentile.

I love our pediatrician! She's so cute. She even took a little time to talk to me about my concerns with bringing another baby into the mix! She definitely made me feel a little more at ease with the feelings I've been having about how I am going to split my time between both kids and not let Brock feel left out. She reminded me that newborns sleep and eat all day. We don't really need to entertain them that much in those first few weeks. She recommend that I have someone watch Lillian for an hour each day so Brock and I can have some alone time :-) I like that! I put him to bed every night, so that won't change. He'll still have mommy read him his stories and tuck him in!

Brock's running around like a mad man! He can't really stay still very long. He is starting to say a few more words and has starting pointing to things he wants. He also seems to point at things and say "dis?" Like he's asking, what is this? Its so cute!

New Words:

Lele = Leche (milk in Spanish)
Dis = This
Lilly = mommy's belly
Vroooom = when he's playing with his cars
Weeeee = also when he's playing with his cars
Num Num = Yummy

He loves to give kisses and even offers his puckered lips to strangers... kind of weird, but cute at the same time! Thankfully strangers haven't bent down to him or they'd get a kick in the face! LOL!


I am just ending week 37! I am so happy I have made it this far. I still have Braxton Hicks contractions every single time I try to move. They have started to feel a lot stronger and last a lot longer. Last week I had my Group B Strep test and it came back normal. I have my next appointment tomorrow! I can't believe that in as little as 2 1/2 weeks, our little princess will be here! So scared but excited at the same time!


All I can say is that its getting there... Spike has worked his tail off to try to get the fish tanks situated. There is so much work involved, I feel so bad for him. He told me earlier this evening that he plans to have the fish tank that is currently in what will be Lillian's room emptied out and broken down by Sunday. He plans to get the rest of my office furniture out of the room by Tuesday or Wednesday. Thursday and Friday his plan is to tear up the carpet and lay down the hardwood floor in her room. Once the floor is done, all we have to do is put in her crib and dresser and start decorating. Thankfully we already have everything we need (except blinds).  So if baby girl can hold off until after Superbowl Sunday, then I will be so happy :-) I've been having a feeling that I am going to have her next week... I hope not! I can't wait to get pictures up of what her room is going to be when its done! I love everything we picked out and can't wait to see it all come together :-) YAY! So please pray that she holds off until after the Superbowl!! LOL!

Don't worry yourself over splitting time between children. It all happens naturally. Older ones learn to share and cope very well. I always tried to get my older ones to "help out" as much as they could with the baby, then I had more time with them. It doesn't have to be a big deal. Just do what comes naturally, don't force anything. You'll be a great momma of two! Can't wait to see pictures!
