25 weeks. Lena update.

Oh, Miss Lena. Let's play catch up on all things you.

We have made some progress in your nursery. Planning a girl room while not being the biggest girly girl has proven a little tough. I want it to feel eclectic, fun, and be something you can grow with. I think we are on the right path.

 I am having the P17 shots every week to keep you cooking. So far, so good. I joke you are already a pain in the rear but, really it's all worth it as long as you are ok. They burn like all get out and are not so fun but, eye on the prize. I'm going to have to get creative since this week is #6 and I don't know how I will hold the phone and snap a picture. 10 more to go and yes, we are counting down.

 We found out last week that my fluid levels are looking pretty high. Not extreme but, enough to make Dr. Singh want to send me back to the perinatoligist who confirmed in fact that I do have polyhydramnios. My #'s are in the high 20's. It's a big word with some scary things that are associated with it but, we are prayerful with close monitoring you and I will both be ok. Have I mentioned you are giving me a run for my money this go round. Here are some of the best articles I have found about that long word up there.

One.    Two.   Three.
Needless to say we are praying, praying, praying that mine is an easy case and my numbers stay where they are and don't start rising. On the plus side we really like my perinatoligist a lot. It's always comforting to have a great team. She said you looked great and we just have to keep a close eye on everything. Well, that's what she said in a nutshell. ;)

Onward and Upward. We went and registered for you a couple weeks ago. Pam and Donna are planning a shower for you that I am sure will be so fun and beautiful. Jackson thought the whole scanner gun thing was the best thing ever!

Well, I think I have caught us up. This picture was taken last week. 24w4d I think. So far I have gained about 10lbs but, I feel really good most days. I can tell it's time for my shot again by Mon/Tues night because I have a lot of tightening but, other than that we are doing great and counting down until we get to meet you.  Can you tell how excited Jack is? He loves you so much already, we all do. Stay put little momma. Give us those last 10w at least ok?

Halloween 2012

Late to the game but, he was so cute none the less. He wanted to be a race car driver this year. He decided in August and never changed his mind. Nothing to do with Nascar just as if he was the famous race car driver. Zulily to the rescue. He looked so cute and it had his baseball number all over it! Go #23!!!

We had so much fun trick or treating that evening and that day at his school fall festival. :)
All in all it was an awesome day. I can't believe next year we will be trick or treating with two.

Fall Festival at preschool.
Super cute with the pumpkin he made.

 Class picture.

 Made every shot!

Time to trick or treat!

Bobby and CC brought the golf cart over so he could be like a real race car driver.

 Such a fun night!

Because sometimes you just need to go to church,

On a Monday. Last week/end has been filled with answered prayers and friends with mourning hearts.

A good friend found out last week that her 2 year old has a brain tumor and within 24hrs she was scheduled for surgery. She is doing great but, still has quite the road in front of her. Please remember Reesey and her family in your prayers. You can donate here or be apart of the auction here.

I also have two sweet ladies in my life who lost their mom's this weekend. One on Friday and one last night. Both are feeling this loss in a major way so please hold up Mckenzie and Rosie in your prayers.
For never meeting and being almost 30 yrs difference in age their stories are so similar. Both fought hard and took such amazing care of their mom's until the very last breath. I can't help but, think this is both such a gift and heartbreaking. Thinking of you guys.

We are also praying for those effected by Sandy. It's so sad to think a week later and some people haven't seen sight of help yet.

In all things we worship and praise your name. You are good, you are faithful, you are in control and for that we have the hope to keep on, keeping on~

Something on your heart? I am always here to pray for you friends. xoxo
