Pregnancy Update

I went in for my blood work to check on my iron and blood sugars. I failed both... SUCKS! I've been down this path before with Ryleigh on both accounts. So now I get to take an iron supplement (no biggie) and I get to go in for the big 3 hour gestational diabetes test. I will fail. I am not being a pessimist rather a realist on this one. I asked for my number and it was 175. I decided to retaliate by eating a PBJ sandwich. How mature of me I know!

Recent Frenzy

Ryleigh and I spent the Thanksgiving Holiday in Crozet, VA (near Charlottesville) visiting my sister and her family. We drove down on Wednesday with my parents, about 7 hours. We left mega early and arrived by lunch. It was great to be able to see my sister's new home and spend time with her family. My brother also came in which was a nice surprise.
The girls had a good time together. Avery was really good with Ryleigh considering their age difference. I think they look possessed in the top photo.

Our Sunday

We spent our Sunday getting our annual family photos done by a great new photographer. Toni gave us a sneak peak of 2 shots. I am so excited to see the rest in a few weeks!

Mary Janes

My favorite show store closed this past weekend. Oliver Kleban shut its doors on Saturday but they had a fantastic sale and went out with a bang. I bought Ryleigh 4 pairs of shoes. They were buy 1 get 1 free + all shoes were reduced. I loved it but at the same time wondered where I would buy Ryleigh's shoes from here on out.
Ryleigh has been wearing her patent Mary Janes for the past few days. Yesterday she wore them with sweats. I never thought a 2 year old to be could be so particular about her footwear. I suspect Imelda Marcos 2 in the making.

Pregnancy Update

Alright, some maybe curious as to how the pregnancy is going. I am feeling great and the baby is starting to move (and I can feel it from the outside). Glenn and I had our second ultrasound a week ago and we did not find out the sex. We are of the school of thought that there are not enough good surprises in life so if we can choose to have one it would be this. We didn't find out what Ryleigh was before her birth and it was great. It gave me extra incentive to push too.

He's coming home

and he's sick! Yup, my man is on his way home right now. He is about to hop a flight in Chicago to head down to C-Bus and he is sick with some sort of stomach bug! Ick!!!! Don't get me wrong, I am excited for him to be home but it certainly makes it tough knowing he isn't well. First and foremost (and obvious), I don't want it and I don't want Ryleigh to get it. So I am going to quarantine him to the spare bedroom till he feels better.

Miss her

Here is my beautiful niece, Avery. She and her family (my sister & brother-in-law) moved to Virginia a couple of months ago. My brother-in-law sent photos from Halloween. I was so excited because they haven't done digitals since she was a wee one and she's now 6. It was good to see her... even in a photo!
