Update from doctor appt yesterday...

The doctor said that Jaycie is measured in the 93rd percentile and they believe that she already weighs about 5 1/2 pounds. I can believe it! I can feel her inside of me every time I sit down, I feel like I have a baby in my lap and I'm mashing her. I don't remember ever being able to Jake this much. So she said that if Jaycie doesn't come on her own before 38 weeks that she will induce labor. WoooHooo! I can handle 2 less weeks of being pregnant during the summer. That means that we could have a little girl here to spoil in 4 or 5 weeks! I hope we are ready for this. The doctor also said that babies gain about 1/2 a pound a week from this point on so in 4 or 5 weeks, she is expected to be about 7 1/2 or 8 pounds.

Hand-Foot-Mouth Virus!!

Saturday night after the party Jake, wouldn't go to sleep and just kept screaming bloody murder. Jacob and I thought maybe his stomach was upset from all the cake icing and he hadn't eaten or drank anything pretty much all day because he was to pre-occupied with everything else that was going on in the house. We kept offering him food and milk to see if that was his problem but nothing helped. He was up most of the night screaming! Sunday wasn't much better so I decided to take him to urgent doc here in town. I haven't been very happy with them in the past but we don't have many options in Livingston on the weekends so I took him anyways. Yes, it was 5:45 and they close at 6 but the doctor there was a complete jerk and made me feel like I was a horrible mother. He said that Jake had a "deep inner ear infection" and gave him a shot. CVS pharmacy was closed so getting the prescription filled wasn't an option. Jake stayed with his JuJu Sunday night so Jacob and I could get some rest and he didn't sleep much and still wouldn't eat or drink anything. I had talked to one of our friends whos son went to Urgent doc with the same symptoms and they said it was an ear infection and gave him a shot, she took him to our pediatrician the next day and he had ulcers in his mouth not an ear infection! So I decided that I better take Jake just to be sure. Sure enough, NO ear infection and he has ulcers on his tongue, top of his mouth and in his throat. They said it's called Hand Foot & Mouth virus and is common in children and passed through daycares in Summer/Fall. GREAT!! I felt like going to Urgent Doc just to let them know what I thought but...what good would that do?! Probably NONE! The pediatrician said to mix Maalox and Benadryl and put it in his mouth to help with the ulcers and it would also cure a sore throat if he ever got one. Who would have ever thought! I decided to sleep in Jakes room with him last night so Jacob could get some rest and he slept most of the night. Thank Goodness!!! Maybe we are on the road to recovery.

Jakes 1st Birthday Party!

We had Jake's 1st birthday party Saturday and it went great! I was worried that we wouldn't have room for everyone but we managed. We had 31 people there to celebrate with us! Jake had a blast and LOVED opening presents and eating his cake. Here are just a few pics...

Jake got so many gifts that he didn't know what to play with first. I'm packing up some old toys this week to put away for Jaycie. Then after eating his cake (or should I say icing), what better way to wash off all of the cake icing than to put him in his swimming pool! He enjoyed all of the attention being on him for the day. I still can't believe my baby will be 1 year old in two days.

Jaycie is STILL a GIRL!!

We went for our 31 week 3D ultrasound yesterday. I couldn't eat all morning without feeling like I was going to throw up, I guess because I was so nervous that they were going to tell me that it was another boy. So all I had eaten before our 2:30 dr appt was 1 kolache and 2 cheese sticks. We didn't get any ultrasound pictures but we got a video of the whole ultrasound. None of the images were that good but from what we could tell, she is DEFINITELY a GIRL and she appears to look exactly like Jake did. As long as she doesn't have his attitude and temper...I'm good with her looking like Jake! I do think he is pretty cute with bows in his hair. ;)

My unsuccessful attempt at photography!

Yesterday afternoon Jacob and I decided to take Jake outside to play because he LOVES being outside. It was only 100 degrees and I'm 7 months pregnant (fat) so why not?! Jake was all smiles until I got the camera out after him and tried to get some pictures.

Here is the best one that I got...

I told Jacob that Jake was opening his mouth every time I would take the picture and it looked like he was screaming, Jacobs response was "well that's him."

He was right!

My latest craft/sewing project!

Yes, I decided to TRY to sew again! Julie and the boys bought Jaycie the cutest dress the other day and it didn't look like it would be to hard to make so I went to Wal-Mart and bought some fabric. I read on the internet that "pillowcase" dresses take about 30 minutes to make so I decided I would start on it this morning at work. Needless to say...4 HOURS later, it's finally finished. They must have been talking about the amount of time it would take a professional to make one!!

Here is a picture of the one that Julie bought and then the one that I made...

I bought more fabric to make a red bandana dress but I'm over sewing for today!!

Jake LOVES his daddy!

Jacob and Jake play on the floor every afternoon when Jacob gets home from work. Jake loves his daddy!

I took a video of them yesterday and it also shows Jake walking.

I couldn't figure out how to post the video other than to put it on YouTube.


Never a dull moment around our house with these two guys!!
