Thursday, I told Finn I was going to leave him at PT until he started walking! First of all, he was very stubborn and wouldn't even STAND for Melissa. She is using him as a case study for a conference she is presenting at and needed to "test" him on a few things. Argh! Second, we all know that for all points and purposes, he probably CAN walk and just chooses not to. He will be that kid who just gets up and walks across the room one day. Needless to say, I did take him home with me, but he is lucky Grandma was there or he might have needed a sleeping bag ;)
Yesterday, auntie NaeNae came with me to my OB appointment while Jim opted to stay home with a napping Finn. It was my gestational diabetes test, which wasn't as bad as I was expecting. The liquid at least...when I was done drinking, it made me nauseous. Not sure when the results are expected back. Overall, I'm just very disappointed with my Dr's care. She told me that now that I passed Finn's delivery date that maybe now I can just relax and enjoy my NORMAL pregnancy! Um, nobody told me that all I had to do was "pass Finn's delivery date!" What is wrong with some people! Yes, I'm trying to just breathe and take each day as it comes because I'm happy we got further than we did with Finn, but my feelings are still valid and should at least be acknowledged.
After the appt, Renae and I went to the Wedding Chapel with Becky, Austin, Kristine, Grace and my mom so Becky could buy her wedding dress! Yay. It is so beautiful. One more thing off her To Do list. And then Renae took Finn with her over to Becky's where he stayed over night, then Becky is dropping him off with Kristine this afternoon and he is staying over night at Kristine's tonight. Busy boy...I feel a little guilty being away from him for so long, but he'll have the time of his life I'm sure and we have birthing class all day today and a function for Jim's work tonight, both of which Finn obviously can't attend.
Since we were Finn-less, Jim and I took advantage of the rare opportunity and went to a movie last night. We decided on Due Date, which was really funny (Jim enjoyed it a little more than I did...probably because of the crude factor!). I just enjoyed the time out with my wonderful husband.
Happy baptism day to Vincent! We are sad we can't make it, but will be thinking of you :) Hope to celebrate with you soon.
Nearly half a million babies (1 in 10) are born premature in the US each year which is higher than that of most other developed nations. This is the journeys of our first born son, Finnegan, who was born 14 weeks early and weighed only 1 pound 15 ounces at birth. Of our daugher, Korrigan, who was born a healthy 7 pounds, 7 ounces at 37 weeks. And of our second son, MacKeegan, who was also born at 37 weeks at a whopping 8 pounds, 13 ounces. Our continued adventures reminds us daily how good God is.
