1.18.2012, 27 weeks

What a great week.

Today marks ...

This week was great!  A wonderful recap of this weeks journey-

Thursday 1.12.2012

Yesterday, Gavin ended up running a fever and this morning, he was still feeling icky which lead him to the doctors office... BOO!  I can't stand that my baby is sick and I can't be there. 

But I know he is in good hands with his Daddy, and now on antibiotics he will be feeling better before too long. 

But since he is icky, I don't get to see them right away, but luckily Skype always help with that.  It is so nice to be able to talk to them during their daily routines, and to actually see them throughout the day even if not 'in person'

Dinner with my Greyson
Gavin might feel icky
but was in good spirts when talking
with me tonight

Sonogram day - LOVE these days!!  I know how lucky I am to get to see my baby twice a week via sonograms.  It is always so reassuring to know that he is doing so good.

This morning, he was snug as a bug in a rug.  He looked so comfy and cozy, hopefully that feeling will keep with him and he will stay put for a while longer.

After sonogram, it was back to the room and time to get ready for the day.  Which was a FUN day!!  My wonderful Mom came up and we had a true girlie day.  She brought all kinds of chick flicks, and we watch movies all afternoon, Bridesmaids and I don't know how she does it.  They were both good, but I must admit, I don't understand the hype of Bridesmaids :/

Today was AWESOME!  Started with my Mom and Dad coming to visit and then before I knew it I had a knock on my door and my sweet sweet boys were there.

My hubs brought me a package, which turned out to be a necklace that I had ordered and had been waiting on - It has all three boys names on it, and I am so excited to wear it.  The constant reminder around my neck as to why I am sitting here :o)

But the most awesome surprise were these:

flowers from my boys

 My husband, and both boys ran to Costco this morning for a few groceries... and My hubs said before they could get to check out, my oldest ran across the store to the flower section.  Once catching up with him, He had these flowers in his hand and said that they were for me.  AWE!  He, truly is, my little romantic. 

When he arrived in my room, he immediatly ran to the bed, took his shoes off, and jumped up to give me a hug and kiss and show me the flowers.  He told me they were to make me happy and smile everyday.  Man, I LOVE this KID!!

Girls lunch

Today, I woke and got ready for another exciting day.  Today some the beautiful ladies from our life group are coming up to have lunch with me.

It was awesome.  I spent the morning, doing my normal routine, but with a little bit nicer of an outfit and probably a little bit more makeup than my 'normal' day wear :)

The girls arrived, with hugs and well wishes and all kinds of FABULOUS goodies, which included this beautiful sign that now adornes my window.  I LOVE IT!  I love waking to see it every morn.

After the girls left, I took a quick nap, and then got to have dinner with my favorite 3 gentlemen :o)

What an amazing day!!!

A low key but fun day!  My Mom and I have been crockpot dish searching while I have been on bedrest.  We spend quite a bit of time, searching for great reciepes and blogs on the web.  I am determined to utilize my crockpot more once I get home.  I 'know' with 3 boys and a very busy and successful hubs, that, if I allow it, the crockpot will be my best friend ;)

Well we found a reciepe last week that sounded so good... so Mom made it last night and it was a hit.  She brought it up to me today to try and let me tell you it was DELICIOUS!

If you are looking for a quick and very yummy (4 ingredient) reciepe this is a must try!
Honey Seaseme Chicken
The reciepe is courtsey of the wonderful kitchen of Skinny Ms., and you can find it here :

But reciepes weren't all Mom and I did.  She has an obsession with the make your salads in the Atrium, and sometimes, I think she comes up, not for me, but for a salad - HA!

We had lunch in the Atrium, which is always nice to get out of the room, and then came back and decorated my room for Valentines.  She brought up all kinds of fun goodies to brighten my room.

She is amazing!

Sonogram day!

Isn't he just so handsome!!!  And i just LOVE this picture.  I swear he was smiling for us this morning.

smiling for Mommie
Nothing like sono days to ensure that I will have a wonderful day.  Today they did remind me that I will be re-evaluated on my preterm labor symptoms when I'm 28 weeks.  WOW!  That sounds like I am getting somewhere -  ;) How exciting.
I got to see my littlest man via sonogram this morning, and then came the evening and I got to see the rest of my amazing family.  I <3 getting to see my boys.  And my hubs is doing an AMAZING job with them and me :)  Even if I only get to see them for an hour, he will still bring them up for hugs and kisses and special Mommie time.

Tonight we spent time in the cafeteria sharing icecream and then spent time 'playing' with the fish:

I am going to sleep well tonight.  I feel so blessed to have such an amazing family:  Beautiful and healthy boys who LOVE their Momma!!  And an amazing husband, who is so strong and such a great support for me during this 'situation'... and lets not forget what a fantastic Dad he is for my boys!!

Wednesday 1.18.2012  27 WEEKS

Today marks the transition - I am offically 27 weeks!  How exicting.  It has almost be a full 3 weeks in the hospital and Baby we have come a long way.  I am so pleased to still be pregnant, allowing my sweet baby boy to continue to grow and get strong!

Along with celebrating this fabulous milestone, I also got great news this morning...  A bigger room came available and I have been approved to move rooms.  YEAH for more room!  Of course, I don't really need the room, but it will be wonderful for the boys to have the extra play area.  And to top it all of, it has a refrigerator - FUN!

Mom came up to help me move.  But first, we went down and got lunch... huh?!?! surprising, she wanted a Salad ;)

We went down and got her a salad, and ate in the Atrium, which not only is nice to not be in the room, but a great spot for people watching.  While we were down there, one of my best friends, her littlest and her Mom, stopped by to see me.  So all 5 of us girls got to sit down at the Atrium and have wonderful conversation and laughs.  I <3 girl time :)

Once lunch was done, it was time to go up and get to work.  MOVING DAY!  And my Mom did great as a mover - HA! Once we got everything down there, we had the joy of the remainder of the afternoon to redecorate and put away my things.

I didn't realize how much just a few extra feet in a room, a dresser and refrigerator would make such a difference.  But my room is so amazing compared to what I was in. YEAH! 

Here it is:

In the excitement of my new room, my hubs did bring my boys up for the evening, to see my new digs and make their 'mark' on my room. 

What a wonderful day!

All in all, it was a BEAUTIFUL and busy week.  I am, emotionally and physically doing great, and this little baby is doing fabulous, getting bigger every day.  I know that this is not the best sitaution, to be away from my family, and pulled out of my life, but the way that life has adapted to this situation has been amazing, and I am so blessed to have this wonderful life, and the wonderful people in it.

Until next time, Squeeze your MoNkEyS tight-
