Baby Shower

Well, in just 2 days(the 23rd) it'll be exactly a month till my due date. However, next week I should have an official birthday for Grayson(sooner than the 23rd). I'll be 36 weeks at my appointment this coming Thursday. I have to pick a c-section date or this baby is coming on his own which won't be good for mommy.

Sunday, the 15th, I had my baby shower for Baby Grayson. I had a really great time. Thanks everybody for coming! I feel really bad that my mother had to miss it. She helped look after Gav because he was in total meltdown mode. Thank you mama! I think he just didn't understand what was going on. When we got back home that evening, he kept asking to open presents, because he thought they were for him. He knows that he's going to be a big brother, but not sure he has a full grasp on what all that entails. He'll get it though. I think the hardest thing is going to be learning to share his daddy's attention. He's such a daddy's boy! I received some wonderful gifts that will be put to great use. 

A special thank you to my best friend, Megan for hosting. We've been best friends for 15 years, and she's become more like a sister. I can't wait until her son, Rylan, and Grayson are old enough to play together. Oh, and Gavin will supervise. LOL

I must also say that Chad is the best&knew exactly what I needed! I've had my moments on and off with having to deal with this pregnancy&deployment. He sent me a beautiful display of flowers&gift basket for Grayson, along with the sweetest note. It was a definite pick me up. I can't wait for daddy to meet Grayson!

Since the baby shower, it got me to thinking about how fast time flies when it comes to your children. I can't believe it's been almost 4 years since Gavin came along. Trying to remember how tiny he was. Trying to imagine what Grayson will look like. I love my boys&I'm so glad they are in life!  

Best Friends for 15 years

Happenings over the past week..&the week to come..

So, what have we been up to? Not much. Kind of trying to quarantine ourselves until Gav&I can kick this tummy bug. It's lasting forever. Took Gavin to the doctor last Thursday since he had already had the bug for a week. She said there was a definite bug going around. Glad I brought him in though. Poor Gavin! Due to his immune system already not being greatest from the diabetes, he had folliculitis, gingivitis(weird, I know, but his body went crazy), a yeast infection, and the cold sores on his face were actually staph. So, he's on an antibiotic and not contagious anymore. Mommy caught the bug though in the meantime. I think I'm actually doing worse than Gavin in that sense. I made a call to the ob on call over the weekend, and it just so happened to be my ob on call. If I still haven't kicked it by the end of tomorrow, I have to go into my regular doctor, and figure out what is going on. Those were my instructions from the ob. Fun! Fun! I feel like I've spent a fortune on stuff to make us better. Oh well, you do what you have to, right?

Other than that, I've just been cleaning when I find the energy. Vacuumed&scrubbed the entire inside of my car. Cleaned out the entire bedroom closet. The nesting is in full swing. Eventually, I'll get the house the way I want it before Grayson arrives.

~A little perk up was getting to talk to Chad on Skype twice this past weekend. It was so great to finally "see" him. Gavin was very excited. I was starting to get kind of bummed with everything going on, so that definitely was nice. We love you daddy! Miss you always!! OXOXO~ 

I'm hoping that everything will be all cleared up by this coming Sunday. Less than a week until my baby shower. Very excited! I'm so grateful for Megan helping with everything. Can't wait to see everyone. Just makes it even more real that Grayson will be here soon. I also have my regular ob appointment on Thursday. Hopefully getting to pick my c-section date. The 8th is out now for some reasons :-( but it's all good. Whatever day it is, I will be so happy. Recovery won't be easy, but that this point, I'm over being pregnant. lol

Well, that's about it for now..going to go eat some more soup, drink more Gatorade, and veg....
