When Justin has to work he is gone for more than hours so as you can imagine it can get to be a long day. It is about 30 minutes to his work so we do not get to go see him all that ofter. Depending on what he is doing that day sometimes you can drive up and he will be called on a call for a couple of hours or sometimes we stay 2-3 hours and just get to hang out. Addi had such a good time she climbed on all the trucks and ran around and played some basketball. We walked across the street and had some lunch together. It was Sunday so no other firefighters were seen ha! It was a good day. Oh and did you take a look at Justins shirt yep it says paramedic not emt!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Last week the circus was in town. Justin got us tickets and then later remembered that he had to work for a guy and could not get off. We were disappointed but glad that my mom could make it. Addi really liked it she liked the elephants the best. I think that next year she would do better it was a little hard for her to stay in her seat the whole time but she did good. Poor Addi only got popcorn everything was soooo expensive $ 10.00 for a snocone it was actuall funny how much stuff cost!!!!!!!!!
Addi thinks my belly is funny in this pic I guess. She sticks her belly out and shows people and says she is having a sister.
My mom offered to watch Addi so Justin and I could go out for an evening. We definately took her up on that. We just went to eat and then went to the movies. We saw The Hangover II it was pretty funny but it was pretty much the same as the first. I wish that we would have went to more movies before we had kids. I always think of I want to see that and then never get to go. It was nice to spend some time with Justin. I like dates that are not that big of a deal just relaxing. It is getting harder for me to set for long periods of time so that might be the last movie we see for awhile.
Happy Fathers Day!!! Justin has to work today so we spent time with Justin yesterday. I want to wish Justin a Happy Fathers Day. Addi is so lucky to have her daddy he is absolutely crazy about her and she loves him so much. I pray that they continue to have a great relationship when she is a teenager. I could not have asked for a better dad for my babies. Justin works hard at work and he is also a great help when he is at home. Justin does so much at home. Happy Fathers Day Justin we love you and thank you for all you do! I can't wait to see you with our little boy!
I wish my dad was here so that we could have had a cook out for fathers day and all spent time together. I still miss my dad everyday but days like this are always harder especially when Justin has to work. My mom came over today so it was nice to spend time with her Addi LOVES her!
On Wednesday I went to my 30 week appointment. Everything went fine the dr gave me some zantac for the acid reflux I have been having and it is working! He also said that according to my sonogram last time and after he remeasured me he thinks that I am 32 weeks! He said he thinks my actual due date is around August 11-13...that's two weeks early!!!! I am ready for him to be here but I am not ready for him yet!!! It has motivated me to get to work on some baby stuff!! I looked and looked for firefighter material and never could find any I liked so I decided on this vintage cowboy material here is some of it I think it will be really cute. We finally decided on a name Justin wants to see the baby before we pick a name that is what happened with Addi but I like monogrammed things so I wanted a name we finally decided...
EASTON JOHN MANN!
Addi had a fever the on Wed and Thurs she really did not have any other symptoms and so we did not do alot. I felt so bad for her she felt better after taking her meds but then her fever would be back. Today she was back to normal. We made Justin a Fathers day surprise today and she was my little helper!! Happy Friday!
Here are some pictures of what we have been doing lately. Now that I am staying home with Addi we have really been trying to find things to do at least for a few hours a day. It gets to be a long day at home if we don't go anywhere! We went to Amarillo a few weeks ago Addi had a great time she played and played.
We found out that our theatre does kid movies on Tuesday and Thursday and the best part it is only 2 dollars! Addi did great and watched the whole movie. Today we saw Marmaduke.
We got a swimming pool for the backyard and a sandbox.
This is our second week of swimming lessons Addi loves them she does really good will jump off the side and go under water and will float on her back she has a great time.Last Friday we meet some friends at the Jump Zone and we have also been going to the library. I am really enjoying getting to spend sometime with Addi before the baby gets here. She is so much fun!
How cute are these shoes! My mom got them for Addi and I love them my Toms are some of my favorite shoes. Addi is doing great with the potty training. She had an accident a week ago and since then she has not had one accident! She has woken up from her naps and even from sleeping through the night and is dry. Today she told me several times that she had to go and not wait for me to tell her it was time to go. She will use the bathroom then say I am so proud of you! I think she was ready to be potty trained.
Tomorrow is my dr appt and today I was 30 weeks I can not believe that in 6 weeks I will be full term CRAZY! We have decided on a name and I have been working on the room...cleaning out the room not the fun stuff yet. So hopefully tomorrow I will post his name and show you some of the fabric for the nursery.
We have had a lot going on lately and I have been really just worn out so no blogging lately. Our computer crashed last week so we had to get another one so I will upload some new pictures of Addi later on but here is what has been going on with us...
Addi...we are potty training we started this week and so far it is going ok she doesn't really tell me when she has to go but will go when I take her so yesterday and Monday we had a few accidents and right after she pees in her big girl panties she tells me. Today we have had no accidents so far ! I think she is doing good it will just take some time and some extra laundry! She is taking swimming lessons on Tues and Thurs yesterday was her first day and she really liked it we just really played in the water. A couple of weeks ago she Justin and I took her to the movies for the first time and she did great she really liked it and she really really liked the popcorn. It is so much fun now that she is older and she gets excited about doing things.
Baby...I was 29 weeks yesterday the dr said he thinks I am about a week ahead but he is not going to change my due date. We had dr appointment last week and we got to do an ultrasound it is so much fun to get to see them. He had his little hand by his face so couldn't see from nose down. At last sonogram the dr called back and said I had low lying placenta which means the placenta attaches at the wrong spot and if it does not correct then it turns in to placenta previa which means placenta is over the cervix which is not good. So for about 10 weeks I could not lift anything including Addi and had to be on pelvic rest which is really annoying...especially not being able to lift Addi. BUT he said last week that it had corrected itself and everything looked great! I am so thankful! Dr called this week and said iron was a little low but not low enough for meds and he wants to check my thyroid so tomorrow I have to go back to have some blood drawn. I am not sure what it is being summer, being older or chasing after a two year old all the time but last pregnancy was so much easier I just felt better last time.
Me...I am getting to stay home with Addi this summer. The dr I worked for decided to sell his practice and told us three weeks before it was all going to happen..nice right! The dr that bought his practice has told me several times that she is planning on being busy enough for another hygienist by the time I am done with maternity leave so I really hope that works out. But for now not much I can do about it except enjoy my time with Addi. It is so frustrating the way it happened but I guess thats the way it goes.
Justin...has been busy at work he is studying for a big test next week. He has spent so much time on it and I know he will be glad when its all over!
Remember the good news I was telling you we had well...Janie (my little sister) is pregnant! They have been trying for a really long time it is such a blessing and I can't wait for Addi to have a cousin to play with and our babies will be about 5 months apart!
I will post some pictures later!
