35 Weeks

We are now 35 weeks pregnant and have just over one month to go until my due date! A few people have asked for an updated belly shot so here it is, I meant to post one last week but time is going by so quickly!
Sweet Pea is getting big fast and running out of space. This morning she spent about half an hour trying to relocate my ribs so that she could have more room to stretch. She weighs about 5 1/2 lbs and measures about 20 1/4 inches tall.
My doctors appointments continue to go well. I go once a week now until Sweet Pea arrives. At last weeks appointment I actually measured a week bigger then what I am which is the first for me in all of my pregnancies. The doctor thought this had more to do with baby's position then her size. She is not sitting too low at the moment so I am relatively comfortable most of the time. I am starting to dread the delivery but I am certainly looking forward to her arrival.
Votes for boy have been ahead since we started the pole but girl has managed to pass boy now in the last week. No one has voted twice have they?

Zoo Today




Jonathan has the weekend off so today we decided to take David to the Zoo. Unfortunately the train isn't in operation right now so that was very upsetting for David and for me since I promised him he could go on the train. We explained to him that it was "broken" and he seemed fine with that until we got to the van and he realized we were leaving and he hadn't gone for a train ride yet.
Regardless we had a great time. Saw the giraffe up close, the cheetah (which we hadn't seen before), saw the hippo's out of the water, saw the tiger eat a whole chicken and all sorts of fun stuff like that. We also saw the wallaby's which made us think of Jared and Katherine.

Happy? Valentines Day...

Yesterday was Valentines Day as I am sure you are all aware. David woke up with the flu which I had Tuesday night of this week. Thankfully he was sick for only a few hours before he regained his appetite and was more like himself. Jonathan went to work at 2pm and by then David was doing much better.
I woke up yesterday morning with a stomach ache which I thought was a bit odd because Thursday and Friday I felt great! By the time I put David to bed last night I had the flu again! This time was much worse. So today I have been resting and tonight I will go to bed early once David is asleep.
That was our Happy Valentines Day! I am really hoping that the flu is gone now. It's really awful being sick when you are 34 weeks pregnant. I will try to post a new belly shot later this week if I manage to get out of my pajama's!

Home Owners!

Jonathan and I just got back from signing papers and we are now officially home owners! I am so relieved to have the searching over with as it was getting quite time consuming and stressful. Now we can focus on getting ready for Sweet Pea's arrival. We get possession April 4th and are planning to move in slowly during the month of May assuming we are not too sleep deprived and that David and the rest of us are adjusting well to Sweep Pea's arrival. April we will do some reno's and painting but like I said it will be pretty relaxed because our primary focus will be Sweet Pea and David. Lots of changes happening. Lots to look forward to and be excited about.

Happy Birthday Noah!

Today we celebrated Noah's 1st Birthday. Jonathan, David and I spent some time together as a family. We went to the mall and made Noah's Bear at "Build-A-Bear"... a first birthday gift tradition we started with David. We also went on a train ride and David announced "All Aboard!" several times throughout our short journey... very cute. I didn't make a cake for Noah this year. I had wanted to but coming up to the date I felt it was just going to make me more sad so instead the 3 of us went to the Marble Slab Creamery and each had an ice cream creation of our own. David had blueberry sweet cream with gummy bears and afterwards he just sat there giggling for 5 minutes... wish we had it on camera. Jonathan is just putting David to bed and tonight we will watch Noah's video's and look through some pictures. My hope for today (and every birthday to come) was that we could celebrate his life and what he means to us despite the sadness we feel from missing him so much. Though we did have some tears I can say that we were able to celebrate Noah's life and for that I am truly grateful.

One more day...
