34 weeks 2 days

Pregnancy: 34 Weeks 2 days

Weight Gain: 32 lbs

Sleep: Minus the 4 bathroom breaks, and having braxton hicks I'm sleeping pretty good. It only takes 5 pillows to keep me comfortable. 

Gender: Boy

Name: For the last couple of weeks it's been Noah Thomas. I'm feeling this one. I think we're going to stick with it. :)

Feeling: Hot, large, and uncomfortable.

Health: We are both doing great. 

Belly: Big! I'm having braxton hicks all the time. They don't hurt, but they are uncomfortable. I found 3 stretch marks the other day. :( so, so sad.

What I am looking forward to: Taking pictures of Noah in his super cute hat I bought.

What I miss: Being able to walk without waddling. 

Milestones: Scheduled my c-section!

Movement: painful at times. It looks like he is trying to bust out.

Cravings: Ice cream. I went to the store a couple of weeks ago, and bought 3 different kinds because I needed them all. :) 

Your baby now weighs about 4 3/4 pounds (like your average cantaloupe) and is almost 18 inches long. His fat layers — which he'll need to regulate his body temperature once he's born — are filling him out, making him rounder. His skin is also smoother than ever. His central nervous system is maturing and his lungs are continuing to mature as well. If you've been nervous about preterm labor, you'll be happy to know that babies born between 34 and 37 weeks who have no other health problems generally do fine. They may need a short stay in the neonatal nursery and may have a few short-term health issues, but in the long run, they usually do as well as full-term babies.

And a picture of Peyton, Hillary and I at the Botanical Gardens last Sunday. Bleh. Pregnancy doesn't suit me.

ten on tuesday!

1. We painted our kitchen. It's not the color I envisioned, but it's growing on me. 

2. Peyton is a closet baby liker. I walked into the playroom and she was giving a doll a kiss. I said, "aww... that's so sweet. Is that your baby?" She looked at me, and then threw the doll on the floor. ha.

3. Potty training is going ok. Somedays she does great, and then other days are very frustrating. Yesterday the only time she had an accident was when we went on a walk and she was sitting in her car. She always seems to pee in her car seat. I'm getting tired of washing her cover. Her accidents usually happen when she is sitting down for longer than 5 minutes... or when she is laying on Hillary's bed. 

4. Hillary came to visit last weekend. It was great having her here. I wish we all lived in the same place, or at least were able to vacation together once a year. 

5. I wanted to get some pictures of Hillary and Peyton at the Botanical Gardens, but we got attacked by mosquitoes. I think I got like three bites, Peyton got a couple and Hillary got about a hundred. Sorry, Hillary! The pictures I did get aren't the best, and the color is all over the place, but they captured our very short time there. 

Heading into the Alabama woods. They both look a little nervous about it. 

Oh, Hillary's got this. Peyton is still looking a little uncertain.

Checking to make sure Peyton is ok.

Getting dusted off after tripping over a root.

Hillary discovers her first mosquito attack. 

Chatting about their morning. Peyton talked to Hillary non stopped in the car.

some hugs

another hug

6. Wachovia's online banking is driving me nuts. They just need to hurry up and make the Wells Fargo switch.

7. It is way too hot. It wouldn't be so bad if I had more than a toddler pool to lounge in. It's not even really a pool...

8. Cory hung some shelves for me, so now I love him forever and ever. It was our deal. :)

9. I suck at painting. I don't know why, but the paint always peels off the wall when I remove the tape. What gives? See above the crown molding? I don't even remember what color we painted our ceiling, and I can't find the paint chip, so i don't know how I'm going to retouch it. ::sigh:: I really don't want to have to paint the entire ceiling.

10. Yesterday I moved our pictures off our computer onto our external hard drive. Is it really necessary to have over 3,000 pictures in less than a year?

Last Day In Idaho

This is the last batch of pictures from our Idaho trip. I wanted some good pictures of Peyton, Ty and Hunter. They weren't in to it at all. I still love the pictures though. 

This picture cracks me up. I love it!

Peyton doesn't look impressed with whatever I was doing to try to make them smile.

Poor Ty, he wanted to give Peyton a kiss so bad, but she kept putting her arm in his face. I think he finally settled on giving her a kiss on the arm. 

So there's our trip to Idaho in pictures. There really isn't much to write about. It was a great time with family. Lots of cousin playing, pool swimming, park visiting, family gathering and relaxing.

More Pool Fun

We went swimming pretty much everyday except on the days we were sick. Well, more like played in the pool. 

Apparently she was really into what she was doing. She looks so serious in all of these pictures.

Cantaloupe break

We had lots of fun playing volleyball and badminton in the evenings. I learned that playing volleyball while pregnant is not the wisest thing for me to do. I don't know how to take it easy while playing. It was so much fun though! I stink at badminton though!

Another Park Day

Hunter and Peyton last year.

Just another day at the park in Idaho.

Sunscreen much?

I love this picture of them. Hunter is so patient with Peyton.

Love him! Who knows what he did with his other shoe. ha.
