Waiting for Baby

I am 39 weeks and 3 days along and now its just a waiting game!
Today we had a Dr. appointment and he said everything looks fine, the baby is still in the right position and he said the baby will come when he is ready.  We are all ready and have been for a while, but I guess the baby doesn't know that haha.

So to pass the time I have been trying to walk a lot around our complex and my mom has been here helping me with Emmett and doing things around here.  It seems like time is standing still waiting these last few weeks.  I have actually lost 3 pounds, which is a miracle, but I guess its because I feel sorta nauseous.  Anyways we are ready for the baby!

Here is a cute picture of Emmett helping my mom in the kitchen.  He was washing the green beans.  Of course after helping he still wouldn't eat any of the vegetables hahaha.

38 Weeks Pregnant #2

On Sunday I was officially 38 weeks pregnant! Only 2 weeks to go.  The Dr. said I am full term now so its safe to have the baby at any time.  So I have told the baby this and it seems he is happy to stay inside LOL.  Everyday I wonder is today the day?  Almost everyday there is a point where I feel something weird and wonder is something changing then it goes away and I feel back to normal.

What is currently going on
  • It is much harder to hold/ carry Emmett 
  • I have the worst acid reflux
  • Tons of trouble sleeping
  • Weird jabs and pains in my lower guts and upper legs
  • The baby is moving less but when he does it looks like he is trying to escape
  • We talk to Emmett about what is going to happen when we have the baby where we will go and who might come and stay with him and he seems to understand
  • I have a little gift for Emmett that will be from the baby when he comes home ( a brothers book and a new cuddle bear)
  • I have been trying to walk around our complex a lot in the evening while Grant and Emmett run around playing kick the ball.
  • I am trying to not go too far from our house just in case I go into labor, but its getting pretty boring being home and just waiting.
  • Simple things are getting harder too, like just washing dishes, cause my tummy is in the way of everything
 Here is to hoping the baby comes early or on time =)
(Emmett was a whole week late haha)

Train Ride

Sunday we took Emmett for his first ever train ride.  He has recently been interested in trains and setting up his train track.  We also just started watching Thomas and Friends so that led us to taking him on the train.  We left from the Tustin train station and went all the way down to Oceanside.  We walked around and had lunch at Ruby's Diner.  Right before we left we were able to meet up with my mom's good friend Mary.  It turned out to be a super fun day.  I can't believe how easy it is to take the train and its only $10 and you can ride the train all day.

Fun Night Out

On Saturday I met Mel and Ruby for lunch at the mall.  I was surprised it had been 2 years since we had last seen them.  I guess because of the internet it feels like it wasn't that long ago.

We had a really nice lunch and then later that night we all went to Rock in Brew for dinner and drinks.  That place is super cool!  The whole restaurant is open with really long tables and benches and there is a fun play area at the back for all of the kids to run around.  The food was great too, I would defiantly go back especially with a large group of people.

All the kids loved running around and playing in the sand area.
Here is Hazel and Ruby

 This was the only moment the kids were actually sitting and coloring.  About 5 minutes later they were all up running around!  Emmett was the worst he would not sit down or relax.

 The girls
 Craig and Carl
The Sand pit with all the kids and guys.

 The little cuties!
When we got home there was a pound of sand in Emmett's hair and clothes haha, thank goodness he stayed up long enough for a bath.

Visitors From NZ

Last Friday we had some of our friends from NZ in town for the weekend.
We went out to dinner and we went to the beach and did some shopping.
 Turned out Matt and Grant had the same short shorts.

 It was pretty hot at the beach, but the water was freezing!

 Here they are ready to head back to NZ.
 I decided I didn't want to be in the photo, being 9 months pregnant is scary looking LOL.
It was so fun to have them here.
