Birthday week!!

Delaney is going to be 4 on Wednesday. I can't believe my baby is getting so big. She wanted to do build a bear as her present from mommy and daddy so we went ahead and did it yesterday. She loves Christmas and of course picked a reindeer to build! She had so much fun. We are having her actual family party when we get together for Thanksgiving next week and she is so excited. It will be a fun week celebrating our sweet girl.

Carter at 28 weeks!

How far along? 28 weeks


Size of the baby? Eggplant (she weighed 2lbs 13oz on the ultrasound)



Maternity Clothes? Yes! I can still wear a mix of regular tops and dresses, but all maternity pants now.



Weight Gain? I gained 4 this time so I'm up to 25lbs, YIKES! Hoping it doesn't get much worse!



Stretch Marks? I had them with Delaney so I'm hoping to just not gain any new ones!



Gender? It's a GIRL!! Carter Rose Brizendine.



Movement? Yes! I am feeling her all the time now and can even see her moving as well. David can feel her really well too.


Wedding Rings? On. I haven't had much swelling yet and I'm trying to drink tons of water so I'm hoping that helps keep it far away!


Sleep? I slept ok this week. Not great but I expect it will pretty much be like that until the end.



Food Cravings? Nothing lately



What I Miss? Just sleeping good, and my wardrobe, but I'm feeling great for the most part.



Symptoms? I just have to use the restroom more than normal, but other than that I feel back to myself. I have also started having some Braxton Hicks contractions, but nothing major. I had these a ton with Delaney so I'm trying to take it easy when I start getting them and drink plenty of water.



Belly Button? In and out. It is in when I haven't just eaten and will poke out once I get full. Weird, I know.



Best Moment of the Week?  We had our 4d ultrasound this week and it was so much fun! It took a  long time because Carter was not cooperative at all. The pictures that we got look very much like her big sisters 4d pictures so I can't wait to see how accurate they are!

Disney on Ice

This year for Delaney's birthday my mom got us all tickets to Disney on Ice. I wanted to take her last year, but ended up not getting tickets in time. She had the best time and loved every minute of the show! She was so excited when Goofy came out and can't stop talking about how he fell down on the ice (on purpose)! She was also really excited to see all of the princesses and said that Snow White was her favorite from the show. This morning on the way to school she was saying how much fun it was and that she can't wait to go back next time they come. I'm glad Gigi got you such a great present that you enjoyed so much! We love you sweet girl and loved watching your excitement!

Trick or Treat 2012

<p>We had a fun night trick or treating. We always go to a local trunk or treat at a church and Delaney has a blast. She was Rapunzel this year and was really excited to get lots of candy! David met us there after practice but I didn't have my camera then. We had a great night!
