Bobby's First Day of Preschool

 We decided to enroll Bobby this year in preschool.  He is in 2K, and going two days a week.  His first day of school was September 8th.  He is having such a great time, and loves it so far.  He brings home one or two art projects each day, and proudly proclaims, "I made that!"  He loves seeing his work on the fridge.  And, because this is our family's blog - I get to brag a bit about him.  He has yet to cry when I drop him off, and is always so willing to go.  His teacher has also said that he has not cried in school once.  He follows directions well, and plays really well with another little boy in his class.  His class is small too - with 3 boys, and 3 girls.  Overall, we are all happy with this adjustment.

On his first day,  Bobby did not want to take the obligatory picture standing with his backpack.  So, I snapped a few, quick shots once we dropped him off at school.

He basically just runs to the toys in his class each morning, and forgets about me!  Case in point...

I am so thankful that this has been a positive experience.  Otherwise, I'm not sure how I'd handle it!

30 Week Appointment

 I had my 30 week appointment today, and all is well.  The baby's heartbeat was in the normal range, and I measured right at 30 weeks.  Evie is a very active baby, and definitely keeps me on my toes! I lucked out, and also did not gain any weight in the past two weeks.  I have been walking more, so, that may be why.  I am so thankful that Fall is sometimes in the air lately...  As for everything else - I can't complain too much.  I have had to take Zofran a few times recently, which is weird.  I hadn't taken it since my first trimester, but have found myself nauseous every once in awhile.  I cannot seem to get comfortable either while sleeping.  I am just plain uncomfortable at this point! I want time to slow down, so we can continue to prepare for her arrival.  But, I also want her out! :)

Here's to 9 more weeks!

28 Weeks Update

 I had my 28 week appointment last Thursday.  All was well, once again.  I passed my Glucose test with flying colors.  And, I also received my Rhogam shot (because I have O- blood).  I'll receive another one after I deliver Evie (depending on her blood type).  I had gained 2.5 lbs. in 2 weeks.  Whoa.  So, now my total weight gain is at 15.5 lbs.  So far, so good...  

I am now going every 2 weeks, and once I reach 36 weeks (God, let's hope I do!), I'll go once a week.  We will also schedule my C-section during my 36 week appointment.  I had to do Contraction Stress Tests with Bobby, starting at 32 weeks.  I am hoping that I do not have to do that, this time around.  I am on new blood pressure medicine, so I'm definitely keeping my fingers crossed.

As for how I am feeling - I can't complain too much.  It is getting harder and harder to move around.  And, sleeping has just been a nightmare this entire pregnancy.  I am definitely feeling like I am on the home stretch!

Recent iPhone Pictures

 I realize that I have not done a post in a long time, with some iPhone pictures.  Thank goodness for the Photobucket app on my phone.  It makes this process so much easier! I guess one of these days, I'll actually start blogging from my phone! :)

So, this is what we've been up to the past several weeks...


I snapped this picture with my phone, just as a big storm was about to hit the beach.  This was taken in July, when I was with my family, at New Smyrna Beach, FL.

During the same trip, Bobby is caught on my sister's iPhone camera, wearing his aunt's hat.  Isn't he the cutest?

We've taken Bobby to see two movies now.  The first one was Cars 2, and the second one was Winnie the Pooh.  Cars 2 (his first) was July 2nd, at 26 months. He did great during both, and lasted through the entire movie(s)!

I thought this was pretty clever of Bobby.  I told him during lunch one day, that he needed to eat his chicken nuggets.  So, what does he do?  He hides the remaining two, and stacks the rest of his lunch on it.  I guess he thought I wouldn't notice, lol.

Bob has been taking Bobby to a local establishment each Saturday afternoon for lunch.  They have been eating hot dogs at a glorified hot dog stand, for the past month now.  The name of the place is Tip Top Grill, and it has become their "thing" to bond over.  The restaurant sits atop a bluff that overlooks our neighborhood.  It is so funny to hear Bobby say the name of the restaurant.  His Southern accent really comes out!

Story time started back at the library a couple of weeks ago!  We are going to the 10:30 story time on Monday mornings, that is specifically for 2 year olds.  It is amazing to me how much more Bobby is participating this Fall, as opposed to this past Spring.  And, they do a craft at the end of each program, which has been fun.  With this, and now school, our fridge is starting to lose some empty space.  I don't mind one bit though.  Here's a random picture of Bobby playing in the preschool area.

Lastly, this picture was taken during our beach trip down to Panama City in August.  The master bedroom's bed, was probably the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in (besides our own).  Bobby seemed to like it too! :)
