Doctor's appointment and crafts!

I know this is a really odd combination for this post! 

Today I had my 35 week check up which included my first ever non stress test and amniotic fluid index ultrasound.   I was scared out of my mind!  I also thought for sure they would find something wrong and we would have go to the hospital and have a baby right away.  So this morning I went and got the rest of everything essential that we needed for Eldon except a diaper pail and diapers!  I didn't get a diaper pail because I didn't like Target's options and I didn't feel like driving to Baby's R Us just for a diaper pail!   I hate driving in this town but that is a whole different post!   I decided I needed to be as ready as possible going into today's appointment!    Well we got to the office and had about a 15 minute wait which makes you stress even more!   We get in the room she does her measurements and then lets us see our baby boy for about 10 minutes!   We got to see him playing in my belly and let me tell you this kid has BIG feet already!    Then we went to do the NST!   Bristol wasn't happy that she couldn't sit with me because I had monitors strapped to my belly and Eldon was not pleased with the monitors either!    He was a crazy man trying to kick them off!   The plus side was the chair I had to sit in was super comfortable!      I want one for my living room.  Normally I am not a fan of recliners but let me tell you this one was comfy!  I could live with its ugliness!  We then saw the doctor, who wasn't my usual OB, he said everything looked golden.  We got on the subject of Eldon's weight and he said that moms of 1 or more are just as good of guessers as the ultrasound when it comes to babys size!  I would definitely have to say he is about the same size as Bristol was when she was born at 40 weeks.   All in all it was a really good  appointment and I am not worried about the rest of them!  Okay well maybe I am worried about the 37 week growth scan and finding out how big he is!

On to our craft projects....

So instead of doing my chores yesterday I was finishing up Eldon's picture boards and painting his and Bristol's names!   I did Bristol's and Jeremy did Eldon's!  I really like how they came out!   I still want to do another picture board for under Bristol's name but first I have to make the changing pad cover and curtains for Eldon's room!   I really want to paint their rooms now that they are getting decorated but can't bring myself to waste the money on a rental!   I hate white walls.  If we ever buy a house there will be NO white in it what so ever!  Even the base boards and trim will be wood, NO white!   

Well that's the end of my ramblings for today, enjoy the pictures!

35 weeks....

We have made it to 35 weeks! Yay! Only 5 more weeks! I have to say I plan on only going to 38 weeks, then I will be doing everything possible to get my giant baby out of my belly! Although I have no clue why I am in such a hurry to get him, its not like we are prepared for him! His nursery is being used as a storage/sewing/spare room at the moment! And we have no place to put all the stuff that is in there! But hey if he gets fussy I can put him in the swing! Oh and he will have clean clothes to wear because I already washed them all trying to figure out what we still needed to buy! I am debating on buying anymore newborn sizes because they think he will come out at around 9-10lbs! I have enough 3 month clothing to change his outfit every hour for the first 3 months of his life!

So this weeks to do list is:
  • clean the nursery
  • figure out what to do with all the stuff in the nursery
  • set up the crib
  • steam clean the couches!

Hopefully I can get it all done!

Yes I bravely posted pictures of my extremely messy nursery!

Christmas 2010

Last year we didn't get Bristol presents!  We where horrible parents!  I just saw no point in getting a 3 month old gifts!  So technically this was her first Christmas!  I am so glad we waited!  Even though she has no clue who Santa Claus is or what Christmas is about she sure did enjoy ripping the wrapping paper off the gifts!  I can't wait to have Eldon here with us next Christmas!

Today was a nice relaxing day... well when I was in the office crafting and leaving a very grumpy Bristol for daddy to deal with!   I got a lot done today.  I finished Eldon's 2nd blanket and finally did the cork boards for Bristol's room.  I have been wanting to do these cork boards since before she was born but never got around to it!   Now all I have to do is Eldon's.  Although I do have to admit now that I see these 3 finished it makes me want to do more for over her crib!

Naps, where have you gone?

This week has been so challenging.  Bristol has decided she is only taking one nap a day but she doesn't know when she wants to take it!    Yesterday it was her morning nap, Friday it was her afternoon nap, today it was a mid day nap!   Haha crazy kid.  I have no problem with her going down to one nap a day she just needs to know that when shes tired because she refused to nap that she doesn't get to take it out on me!    So tomorrow hopefully she will sleep 8pm -9:00am or 9:30am and then we will try an after lunch nap!  Hopefully this will be the solution because I don't think I can take the 1 hour meltdown she has been having this past week from 7pm to 8pm!   Thankfully daddy is off work tomorrow so he can deal with the meltdown if it happens!

32 weeks down, forever to go!

I know its not forever but it sure feels like it!   I carried so high with Miss Bristol that I never had a hard time putting on my shoes, getting out of bed, or getting of the the floor or couch but Eldon is so low that I can't do any of these things.   When I have to pee in the middle of the night it takes me at least 3 tires to reach the side of the bed then I kind of just fling myself off hoping I land on my feet!  Last night I landed on a dog.  Ollee was not impressed!    I don't think he will be laying on my side of the bed again!

Maybe we will survive!

There are some days, which pretty much has been everyday for the last 2 weeks, that I think we are crazy for being pregnant again so soon.  It was planned but still I think we are crazy but then on days like today when Miss Bristol is loving on my belly I think we might just survive!

30 weeks! 68 days to go!

I can't believe I am already 30 weeks!   I remember how loooong I was pregnant with Bristol but this pregnancy really seems to be flying by!   Eldon is such a different baby already!  He is way less active in my belly than Bristol was (the dr says that's normal)!   He loves to lay really low!  I actually have space between my boobs and belly this pregnancy! Haha!   He also likes to do flips.   One minute I will feel his kicks in my ribs and then he will do some crazy tricks in my belly and his kicks will be aimed at my ribs.  

Bristol loves to sit on my lap and lift up my shirt and rub my belly!  It is the cutest thing in the world.  I hope one of these times we can get a picture of it so we can show her that she did like her brother when hes annoying her later in life!  

68 days to go!   We are so unprepared!  But we where with Bristol too!  I made a list of everything we still need a couple weeks ago and it seems like it grows daily!    My goal is to have everything done by Christmas!   

68 more days and we will be holding our handsome little man!  I can't wait!

5 years!  I have been married to this amazing man 5 years!  I wake up each morning and give thanks to God for how much he blessed me with Jeremy!   He is an amazing husband!   He is my best friend, support system, partner, stress reliever, stress causer :), but most of all he is my husband.    I just can't believe how lucky I am to have him.   5 years ago today had to be one of the most stressful days of my life and if we had it to do all over again we would have eloped.  But the best thing in the world came out of all the stress at the end of the day I became Mrs. Savanna Bennett!!!!   I have been cherished, cared for, and loved every minute since that day.  

I remember when I met Jeremy only a few hours later sitting in Denny's drinking coffee and eating the most disgusting cheese cake in the world, I knew that I would marry him.   From that day there has never been any doubts.  

I can't believe its be 5 years already but I do know this, I can't wait until our 50th anniversary!

Bad parent award!!!!

Yesterday we went to a BBQ and Bristol encountered stairs for the first time!    She also conquered these stairs.    So here we are all sitting around talking and I thought Bristol was just on the other side of the bar where I couldn't see her but she was being awfully quite (which is never a good sign).   So ask Jeremy what she is doing, because he should have been able to see her,  and he was like shes not here so he walked into the living room to find her and she was no where!!!!!   Well she CLIMBED the stairs.    There are like 15 stairs.   She was only out of our site for about 2 minutes.    I am so thankful she didn't fall!   I am also bummed because neither of us thought to take a picture of the little turkey!   So we get the bad parent of the year award!!!!

It is October 6th and finally starting to feel like fall here in the Springs.    The wind is blowing and the temperature is cool but my favorite part is the smell of fall!  Either this weekend or next we are going to take Bristol to the pumpkin patch so she can go on her first hayride and be amazed at the pumpkins the size of her!

Our big girl!

I know, I know, you have heard it a thousand times!   Last night we where laying in bed scrolling through pictures of Miss Bristol on my phone.  From the most recent one of her eating spaghetti to the first picture of her and daddy taken at 8:52am on September 7th 2009.    She has grown so much.    Recently she has become a cuddle bug again and I am loving it.  I was looking at a similar picture of how she likes to cuddle that was taken when she was a week old.   She only went from my shoulder to the top of my chest in that picture now on the other hand she doesn't even fit on me anymore.  Her little feet hang over.   I think she is the cutest thing in the world right now and definitely a lot more fun than when all she wanted to do was sleep.   But I have to say I do miss those days sometimes.    Although right now it is so much fun to watch her waddle around the house, dance, ride her lion, and everything else that I am forgetting right now!  

Another thing I hadn't realized was how much hair our child has these days! When she was first born she had some hair but now the child has a mop!  And its as unruly as a mop too!

Its a....

Boy!!!!  I am so behind on my blog these days.  We are expecting our first boy!  Eldon Jeremy who is currently being called Junior Junior.   Jeremy started calling him this a couple weeks ago but I couldn't say it until we found out the sex.   I have to admit that finding out we are having a boy has been quite a scary thing.  We have everything pink from Bristol!  Nothing is reusable!   My penny pinching self is taking all the joy out of the experience.

I can't wait to see him!  I hope he looks like his daddy!   I hope he is a respectful, loving, caring little man like his daddy!   Only 20 more weeks until we will get to welcome home Eldon Jeremy!

Bristol is 1!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well she has been 1 for a couple of days now!  Its been an amazing year.  For someone who thought she never wanted kids I couldn't imagine life without this little girl!   She is such a joy.  I can remember when she first arrived I was so bummed because I waited for her for 9 very long months and then she got out and all she wanted to do was eat, sleep, and poop!  Now she is a constant ball of energy!   It is amazing to look back on pictures from a year ago and then look at my little girl.  She is truly a blessing!   I can't wait to see where we will be next year!

Our walking Fuss Fuss!

I have to say I was so against Bristol crawling and walking.  I wanted a lazy baby and thought I had gotten one because she is a little chunky monkey but no she started crawling at 8 months and walking at 11 months.   And I LOVE IT!   I love that she wobbles after me everywhere!   She is on the go all the time.  The dogs have even gotten used to her chasing them around the house!

My big girl!

Bristol rose is a week away from being 11 months old and 36 days away from being 1!  My baby girl is not so much a baby anymore.  She is taking steps on a regular basis, crawling up on things, talking more and more each day and getting more curious about how things work.  Today she walked about 4 feet.  That is the furthest she has ever walked.   Me and Jeremy where both occupied when she was doing it but stopped to watch.   Its amazing how much she is growing.   Next thing I know she will be going off the kindergarten!
