Big Brother\Big Sister

With Baby #3's arrival looming, I thought it would be fun to do something special with Maddox and Addison.  I know their little worlds are about to get rocked so I decided a trip to Build a Bear to pick out a new stuffed animal would be a lot of fun!  Today after nap, we headed to the mall with Dede and I gave up my control issues and let the kids pick whatever animal and costume they wanted.  They had a blast!!  Maddox chose a rainbow bear and a hockey player uniform and Addison chose a pink sparkly kitty cat and a Sophia princess dress.  I think it was a special treat for them and they really had a great time!

38 Weeks

38 Weeks

I had my last official prenatal appointment this morning!!  Unfortunately, there was no change from last week but thats ok!  Baby is measuring right on schedule and had a heart rate of 137.   We are scheduled to be induced ONE week from today.  We will go in at 7:30 am and my dr. said she would break my water and see if that gets things going and if not we will proceed from there.  She did tell me she is leaving town tomorrow and will be gone until Sunday evening.  So unless baby comes tonight I guess I'm gonna hope we hold off until at least Sunday night when she gets back in town!

It is a busy weekend so at this point it would be fine with me if the baby waited.  Tomorrow night we are celebrating one of my besties birthdays, Saturday we have maternity pictures scheduled and then of course Sunday is Easter which is somewhat a busy day for my preacher husband ;D.  A lot to look forward to coming up!

Can't wait to meet this little one! Any guesses on boy or girl?

I love spring time!  The kids have been having so much fun being able to finally play outside again!  The only thing about spring in Colorado is that sometimes it looks a bit more like winter than spring.  Last night we got several inches of snow but thankfully the sun usually comes out not long after and clears it all away pretty quickly.

Besides playing outside, one of our favorite things about spring is baseball!  We took the kids to our first game of the season opening weekend and had a blast.  We did have some interesting weather, (snow, rain, and sun) but we had a great time regardless.  Attending lots of games is always something we look forward to every season!  Here's to hoping the Rockies do some winning this season!

Full Term

Yesterday we officially passed the full term point in this pregnancy!  I have so blessed to have 3 smooth and healthy pregnancies and I am so thankful for that.  This morning I had my weekly check up and much to my surprise my Dr. said I was already dilated to 2 cm!  This is the first time I have made any progress on my own outside of the hospital so that pretty exciting!  With both the other kids when I went in to be induced I still hadn't made progress at all!  So, at this point it could be any day or I could stay at a 2 until we go in to be induced 2 weeks from today.  Either way we can't wait to meet Baby #3!!  Here is the belly shot at 37 weeks!!  :D

Mommy/Daughter Date

Last week the boys were gone together so I decided to take Addison on a fun little date.  She loves having her nails painted so I thought a trip to the nail salon would be right up her alley.  She loved sitting in the big pedicure chair while she got her toes painted.  She got some cute little flowers and thought she was big stuff!   I know this will be the first of many trips to get our nails done together :D.

Soccer Videos

Here's a couple of videos from Maddox's first soccer game that I couldn't get to post the other day.
