24 weeks

Not a whole lot going on right now. We found out it is a boy and his name will be Mason Alexander. I can't wait until January. I am so excited for this little boy and the relationship he will have with his big brother. Big brother loves to give Mason kisses every day. I know he will be a good big brother. Blood sugars are still under control. Still in the losing weight category, but the doctors don't seem to be concerned. Everything else is going well.

In other news... DH got a clean bill of health from his doctor and they said dh is as healthy as a 20 year old and there is no reason he won't see 100 years. This makes me very happy. I am so proud of him for all of the lifestyle changes he has made over the last 9 months. He is such a great husband and daddy.

Mason doesn't need any more clothes (at least not in newborn/0-3), hats, mittens, bibs, or wash cloths. We still need to buy everything else, but we are waiting to see what happens with the project down here before we start shopping.

It's been a while

Well it's been a few weeks since I updated the blog. I seem to be slacking in a lot of things and I swear I have pregnancy ADD. Anyway...

I am now just a day or two away from being 22 weeks. Our jelly bean (who has a name now, but we'll get to that later) is measuring a whole week ahead of schedule and is weighing in at a whopping 1 pound. Everything is going great. My blood sugars are still under control and my insulin hasn't had to be changed in quite a while. I am still losing weight, but everyone at the doctor's office doesn't seem to mind. We will see what happens when (err if) I get to see the Dr. at my next appt. 

My baby turns 2 in 5 days. Where has time gone? Seems only yesterday I was having Dr. appts for that pregnancy. He is making sure everyone knows he is in the terrible twos as well, but I love it. He is so smart, you show him how to do something one time and he is a pro at it from then on. He still doesn't talk much, but mommy and daddy can understand him. His party is next Saturday and I hope it goes well. We will also be announcing the gender of the baby to family and since none of them know about my blog I will be happy to share with you as well.

We are getting another little boy to add to our family. His name will be Mason and he is already a momma's boy like his brother. Never kicking for daddy, but as soon as daddy goes to sleep he goes to town playing with mommy. I love it. I love being pregnant and I am a LITTLE sad this will be the last time I get to experience it, but I am okay with it. It's bittersweet really.

Nothing else going on, still down in South Texas waiting to see what happens with the job. Should know more in a month. 

No belly pic this week, I will come back on Tuesday or Wednesday (if I remember) and post one. We are leaving Wednesday to go to Abilene for the birthday party. Won't be back until Sunday night.
