And a baby makes 3 that is!!

Well I had my first two outings with just me and the kids this week. Our first outing was Tuesday to the dentist because my little man (not my littlest man), decided to lose a tooth by climbing on the fort.

So they took an x-ray and he completely knocked it out-there was nothing left up in the gums. So we just have to wait til his adult tooth comes in. Could be just changes his whole look. Too cute!!

Then yesterday Brody has his 2 week check up. He is up to 8lbs 11 oz and is 21 inches long. Now I know he is a boy and he can grow pretty fast but an inch an half in 2 weeks is unbelievable which leads me to believe they were a little off in their original measurements at the hospital. Either way he is definitely growing!!! Just wanted to share some of our week.

Has it been a week already?

I cant believe a week ago today I had Brody. Although the nights do seem longer than the days it is still hard to believe that it has already been a week. Sorry for the lack of reply to emails and posts on facebook. I am able to read everything easily but typing w/one hand(or none sometimes) while feeding the little one will have to be a task that I learn. So right now the little guy is asleep on my chest (this is one of the best feelings in the world) so I managed to sneak in a couple pics on the computer. I wanted to mention that my mom(and my sister) made the drive up as soon as I was on my way to the hospital and my mom left yesterday. She was amazing. All of my laundry was up to date , I have enough meals in the freezer for awhile and the kids were taken care of. Unfortunately she caught Bailey's cough the last couple of days and she didn't want to share it with Brody so she couldn't hold him as much as she would like but she was amazing. Also thanks to my sister for helping out with the kids as well. Another thanks goes out to my amazing sister-in-law , once again she is helping us out so much. She watched the kids countless times for my last checkups while I was pregnant, she watched the kids while we were at the hospital until my mom arrived and she has set up some meals for us with people at the church. What an amazing help!!! I cant say thank you enough to everyone that has helped us. Also my dad, stepmom and one of my brothers made the trip up for a one night stay this past weekend to see the new guy. It was great to see them. Ok I am rambling-just trying to get in as much as possible before the eating machine arises. Oh yeah by the way here are a couple pics from the past week. Enjoy!!

Due Date-NO LABOR DAY!!!

Well this is my actual due date and I thought I would wait until the 24th hour to let you know nothing happened. A couple of weeks ago I was not thinking it would be cute to have this baby on labor day because I was wanting it to happen early, but this morning I was thinking otherwise to go into labor on Labor Day-but no such luck. O'well. Still had a great day with the fam. We will see what tomorrow holds. My son thinks I will have the baby August 25 of next year......not funny at all!!!
