Sweet BabyBoo

The boys have nicknamed our precious surprise Sweet BabyBoo (I added the Sweet, they just say BabyBoo). We needed a nickname that Miles could say and those are too of his favorite words lately. :)
We had a first trimester sono on Monday to check for the risk of downs, etc. Everything came back great with that. Heartrate looked great at 163 and baby measured slightly big (12weeks 6days and I was 12w2d on Monday) - I know shock - I apparently grow them big!!!
We asked about gender and the position of the cord made it unable to tell for sure, but she was about 90% certain that BabyBoo is another boy.
We will be scheduling a c-section and it should be 1 - 1 1/2 weeks before the due date of 9.26. The boys went with Eric and I Monday to the sono and were so cute. Miles kept patting the screen and saying "baby baby". Then, he would look at me and my tummy and say "baby". I think he is trying to figure it all out still. Mason wanted one of the pictures she printed out for us - one had the baby's hand up in the air and that is the one he wanted. He asked to put it in his room. I thought that was very sweet!

We bought the boys bunk beds. They are so excited. Mason will be on the top bunk, but so far has been going from top to bottom each day. Once Miles turns 2 in May and school is out, we'll work on moving them in together and getting the nursery ready. I think we will redo it this time around. I am tired of the room after almost 5 years.

We are working on potty training the little mr. It was going great until he came down with a bad cold and pnemonia last week. Ugh! He is better now and we'll pick up again this weekend.

Going offline for a few days

Things are so busy around here.
I am working on potty training Miles. Mason is a big help, but wants to be right there and makes it a little hard at times.
Both boys are on spring break this week.
Miles ran a fever all weekend and is not sleeping great again.
Mommy is tired and feeling/looking way bigger than the 12 weeks pregnant that I am.
Had a sono yesterday and Sweet Baby Boo looks great. Measuring a little big (shock, I know!). Heartrate is great (163). About 2 1/4" long.

I need to take a few days and go offline. I need to just take a few days for me to enjoy our boys and not feel the pressure to update the blog. I know I haven't been doing that a lot lately anyway, but I think about it all the time. I promise a big announcement will be coming when I return .... probably early next week.

It's been a while

Well, it has been a while since I posted last.
I am sorry and sad that I have not made time. Things have been busy. I have been SO exhausted.
My laptop and Miles got into a fight a few weeks ago and Miles won. The laptop's screen is cracked. Luckily, the computer works when tethered to a monitor. So, since I am not mobile (and the boys always are) anymore, I can't take the computer with me and post/check email while they are playing. But, at least I did not lose my entire computer. And pictures. On the higher priority list is getting an external drive to back-up pics onto.
And, I am hoping to choose a new camera. My Christmas present :)!! So happy!!
We are also having work done on the house - new tile in the entry, front porch, hall half bath. Looks great. Really dusty in the house from the work though. I guess I have to take the good with the bad.
Baby Boo is doing well. Growing. I'll be 11 weeks tomorrow, but look, well....let's just say a little larger than 11 weeks. :) Have a sono on 3/16. Looking forward to seeing baby soon!

Just a few random thoughts and update on what is going on here. I promise to update again soon. I have some fun new pictures of the boys helping our tile guys out this week!
