I feel incredibly blessed to have such wonderful friends and family that threw me a shower today. Laurel and Brooke planned and threw a shower today for Keaton Micah at my parents' house. There was an adorable sailboat cake, blue punch, and yummy food.

We got so many gifts! It was so exciting to get formula, diapers, outfits, and items that had Keaton's name embroidered on it. It is such a different experience this time, because we didn't need the big items and we knew how wonderful all the diapers and formula are! It also made me very excited about Keaton. Our world is all the time Brayden, and I love that little boy with all of my being, but it was nice to have a day to focus on his little brother.

Thank you all so much for thinking and caring for us and our growing family!

32 Weeks

We went to the doctor today, and everything was good. I gained 3 pounds. The heart rate was 149. She is still worried about my blood sugar, and did some more glucose tests today with blood work. We go back in two weeks. We will be setting up an ultrasound to find out the size of the baby, and making plans for delivery!

Keaton update

So I went to the doctor yesterday for our 30 week checkup. Crazy that we are already this far! I gained 3 1/2 lbs in the last 3 weeks, and his heart rate was 149. He is measuring wonderful and my weight gain is normal.

She was still a little concerned with my glucose levels- although they weren't in the diabetic range they were still elevated and said that I was glucose resistant. She said that could explain why both boys were big.

She wants to keep a close eye on my growth, and is going to do another ultrasound at 36 weeks. From there she will make a decision about inducing, or possibly even a c-section. She wants to be cautious, because Brayden wasn't an easy delivery.

We now go every two weeks to the doctor, and are getting closer and closer!

Brayden is almost 20 months old, and actually got to hear his brother's heart beat yesterday. I don't think he was listening- he was playing with the buttons on my chair, but he was at least there! He is now counting 2-twenty- all the tenns numbers sound the same. :) He likes saying the alphabet- c, k, r, w, x, y, z He loves the letter w. He also loves Sarah (the little girl at the babysitter.) He walks around the house calling out to her randomly. He is still terrified of the bath tub, haircuts, and nail cutting.

Our family is getting closer and closer to Megan's wedding, and Audra's graduation from law school. We are super proud of our sisters!
