Changes!

I think we may be done with bottles.  At least until October, anyway.  Garrett had one Tuesday morning and hasn’t had one since.  I was a little worried about weaning him off of the bottle, because every time I tried, he didn’t want anything to do with it.  He has had water out of cups for a while now but milk, no thank you!  I just gave him a sippy cup of milk on Tuesday, and he’s been doing great with it.  I really thought it would’ve been harder, but I’m very glad I decided to try when I did!

I’m having a hard time deciding if I think Baby #2 is a boy or girl.  I’ve had a lot of girl feelings for a while now.  I’ve been so cold, I don’t remember ever being cold when I was pregnant with Garrett.  Still having chocolate cravings, which chocolate never sounded super good to me when I was pregnant with Garrett.  The other day though, I had a dream that it was a boy.  I was giving myself an ultrasound (why? no idea!) and there was a little boy in my belly, bouncing around!  He was so cute!  We tried the over the counter gender predictor test, Intelligender, but it didn’t work.  Oh well!  We’ll find out soon, sometime in May around our anniversary.  I can’t wait!!

My fungal infection, which has absolutely nothing to do with the pregnancy, seems to be improving.  I had some mild morning sickness from about 6 weeks to 10 weeks.  Nothing compared to how I felt with Garrett.  I’m so thankful, I haven’t been as sick!  I get pretty tired by the end of the day but overall, I’m feeling great!

We are so excited about having another baby!  A little scared but mostly excited! 

Baby #2

Baby Stephenson #2 will be joining us sometime in early October!  We are so excited!

Had my first appointment today.  We had a little ultrasound and saw the heartbeat and the baby bouncing around, it was awesome!  Everything looks good!  Thank you Lord!

Praying!

One of my really good friends from high school is in town today from Colorado.  Normally when she’s here we get together with our kids, her daughter Rayne is about 6 months older than Garrett, and catch up.  This time her mom is having surgery to remove the breast cancer from her body.  So today, I’m praying for Beth and Kristyn and the rest of their family.

Doctor Appointments

Mike and I both had doctor appointments this morning.  Mike went to see Dr. Maskill about his ankle.  Dr. Maskill said he’s doing very well and he doesn’t have any restrictions now, so that was great news.  I had an appointment with the lung specialist.  He listened to my lungs and said they sound completely clear.  Also, since I’m doing so much better now, I’ll probably continue to heal fine on my own and we don’t need to worry about the IV antibiotics.  Praise the Lord!  So thankful for good news at both appointments!  Thank you everyone for all your thoughts and prayers, we really appreciate it!
