My Glucose Test

Well I went to the doctor Wednesday. I had to drink the glucose drink before I went in and then they drew blood to check for gestational diabetes. I went up to see my doctor and she was glad to see I finally gained some weight. She also said I passed the glucose test "with flying colors". I was kinda suprised since I had so many minature heath bars the night before. But I have never had that in previous pregnancies so I didn't think it would be a problem this time. I am not even swelling around my ankles with this one either. I think it's because I am pregnant in the winter. It is nice not to be so hot all the time. I am drinking my 64oz a day trying to prepare for the upcoming ultrasound Jan 9th. The more I drink, the more fluid builds up around the baby and it makes the ultrasound pictures come out more clear. We are thinking of taking the boys with us to this one. If they will behave I think they will enjoy it. It might be our last ultrasound and this might be our last baby so I wanted to let them go. We have decided on a name, JONAH AVERY. It's final I am tired of talking about it. We are sticking with it and Jacob keeps saying he's glad we picked a name too. Anyway, check back Jan. 9th for some more ultrasounds.

A Million Dollar Smile

Well I made these iron on's months ago and forgot about them. I just put them on shirts yesterday and they are so cute.

Jacob and Jaron have seen someone put a pencil behind their ear. So this is what they did yesterday. Crayons behind their ears.

Another Check Up

I went to the doctor last week and we heard his heartbeat again. I was having some pain in my stomach and she said he sounded like I pulled a muscle. And after thinking about it that does seem possible. I was the one climbing all over the van with the kids on our trip to FL. Or it could have happened when we went bowling. I don't know but it is all better now. It only hurt for about 3 days. Thank God that is over with. Other than the headaches my pregnancy is going good. Just like the other two. We are just anxious to see him. He kicks a lot after I eat. We still can't decide on a name. I like Jonah or Josiah and Chris likes Jace. I think we should wait until we see his face. I can't wait until Jan 9th to get more pictures of him. My next check up is Dec. 26th. I get to drink the glucose drink....yeah....and get my blood drawn to check for diabetes.

The wheels on the bus

Jacob wanted to pose with the dog. Poor thing, he's got her in a headlock.
And this is the look I get when they are tired of taking pictures.
BIG HUGS! Brotherly love... They have their good days and bad days.

Say Cheese!

Jaron got a new outfit and we had them all dressed for church.
So we tried to get a picture in front of the tree but Jaron couldn't wait to see it. He runs toward me before it even flashes.
And here it is. I learned to not count to 3 and just tell them to say CHEESE.

The other morning they got in my bed around 6:30am like usual. We pull up my shirt and talk to the baby. Jaron was rubbing my belly and he said "open". I said open what? "Open Mommy" I said open my belly? He said "yeah" I said you want to get the baby out? "yeah" It was so cute because he just kept rubbing my belly and kissing it. The baby kicks a lot but Jaron hasn't been still long enough to feel it.

Oh and he pooped in the potty last week. He actually told me he had to go and he did. I couldn't believe it. But each day since he waits until his bedtime diaper goes on then he poops in that.
