This is what I want to do to Ruby's room.... can't wait!
My prego belly...and growing : )

So YEP! I made it to 26 weeks! I had Ryder on this day (26 weeks). When I woke up this morning, I smiled : ) thought to myself... "yay! I made it....now to 30 weeks!"
Today and the past 2 weeks I have been doing great. I have had a few ups and downs, but expected for a high risk pregnancy.
Dr Blumrick said if it stays as it has the last 2 weeks, there is a chance to make it to 36 weeks. I was stoked! So I just take it easy...trying to make it to 30 weeks... then go from there!

I have had a fun time getting clothes for Ruby. Her closet is filling up! I love going into her room and looking at the tiny cute clothes! Ryder doesn't get left out though! If I get ruby something, I always get him something to.. a cool toy, fun craft, or another adorable little boy outfit. He is always SOO happy to get a surprise from mom. I love it!

4d pictures are creepy... but shared anyways!

Kira had her weekly doctor appointment today. It went as expected... good and bad news.... good news my contractions he feels are still resulting from the surgery. My body is still getting used to stitches...at times it wigs out...but then calms down after a bit. No big deal as long as contractions stay small.
Bad news to avoid to much info... lets just say soon all that will hold in Ruby is the stitches. Dr Blumrick said it is such a good thing we did the surgery, and esp when we did!!! because without it... we be in LOTS of trouble!
Several Doctors that have seen me in the last few weeks agree Ruby will likely come around 28 weeks to 32 weeks.... I am 23 & 2 days today! So we are preparing for another preemie!
I am taking it very easy... caring for Ryder gets tricky, but we manage... that is thanks to my mother and family!
We are excited for Greg's sister and mom to come at the end of the month...they will be a TON of help! Ryder will love to see his Grandma Rosaline! and aunt Caralee!
We will of course keep you updated....

Oh some Ryder stories...

He got to feel Ruby kick. He thought it was pretty cool, his facial expression was the best!
After that he decided to put his face right to my tummy and say "hello baby Ruby... I love you!" he kept talking to her about this and that. Greg and I were so touched by how sweet Ryder is. He will be such a great loving big brother.

What has Ryder said lately??
Greg was playing with Ryder the other night... Ryder looks at Greg and says, "Greggy you're weird."
Greg loved it, it was totally unexpected.
Ryder LOVES to say, "um, Actually..." (then throws in a random word or phrase at the end.)
The funny thing is I guess I used to do the same thing at his age... Actually was my favorite word. Haha... we are in LOTS of trouble if Ryder is like me!!!!
