Belated 16 mo post

Brodie is 16 and a half months old. Here is him on his 16 month day:

Brodie has been busy busy busy this past month. He got his first hair cut with Daddy and Poppy at the barber shop. :)

He tried peanut butter for the first time and LOVED it! He now eats peanut butter on toast, in pb&js, and plain.

We have been staying busy doing tons of play dates with friends. This included friends houses, friends coming over here, going to the park, etc. We also went to visit grandpa at his work!

And this last thing started after 16 months but it's very note worthy I think. The last week or so Brodie has been going through a language explosion! (REMINDER OF WHAT HE DID AT 15 MONTHS FOR ME:  He signs hi, please, thank you, more, eat, and apple. He is singing or babbling constantly and says mama, daddy, bye, hi, please, kitty, doggy, baby, and apple. Maybe more, I just can't think of them all. )  Before he turned 16 months he added saying, "no no no" while shaking his head no. But, in this past week he has learned how to say AND sign:


and now he also says:

-that/that please
-"ooh" like an exclamation or inquisitive saying
-he "counts" and says letters (unintelligable ones but he "counts" before we jump off the changing table and trys saying the letters on the page of his Chica Chica ABC book)
-He "sings" Little Bunny Foo Foo, Itsy Bitsy Spider, and Patty Cake (he goes "ooooll iii, paaaa iiii, bbbbbb, yay! for "roll it, pat it, mark it with a b, put it in the oven for Brodie and me")
-barks like a dog/meows like a cat/makes monkey noises/tweets like a bird

 He is trying to say and do even more I just don't understand some of it. He is trying to say something today that sounds like duck or drink and could be either. He just got some rubber duckies from Nana on monday and they are his new favorite. But, he is also signing eat while saying it sometimes and that makes me think he's saying drink. Not sure but I'm sure we'll figure it out soon enough. It's awesome being able to have conversations with him and know that he understands so much more than he can tell me. It's just bursting getting ready to come out. :)

Til next month! :O)

Another uneventful OB check up- 27w4d

It's been a month since I last saw the OB and not much has happened. Zoey is a freaking ninja and moves a TON! I swear she never stopped yesterday and I felt like my insides were a punching bag. I've had the flu/a cough since my last appointment. I swear I always am "sick" in some way this pregnancy...probably because of play dates and having my 16 month old son passing germs around with other kiddos. :)

I feel fine besides a cough right now, and besides the normal aches and pains of pregnancy nothing much to complain about. I'm getting pretty dang excited to meet my little girl. This week marked the beginning of the 3rd trimester, which seems CRAZY! Finally in the home stretch.

My appointment today was uneventful- I gained 4lbs (up 15lbs total), had good blood pressure, and no swelling. I FINALLY got to hear Zoey's heartbeat on the doppler (she's been stubborn up til now) and it sounded perfect and amazing. It was measuring around 120ish. He felt my uterus but didn't comment on the size; I'm assuming I'm still measuring a few weeks ahead. I got my glucose results and passed. WOOT no gestational diabetes again! :) The doc asked if I had any other questions, I said no, and he sent me on my merry way for 3 more weeks. :)

Yay for healthy baby!


VERY belated OB check up 23w4d

I forgot to post this here when I went to the OB last month at 23w4d:

My uterus measures 27wks (I'm 23.5). I gained 3 lb (up 11lb total). Everything on baby measures within a week of my due date. I had good amniotic fluid amount and good BP. The doc gave me a 90% chance girl (I saw a very clear 3 line shot tho before she crossed her legs). I have to go take my glucose test before next appointment. :)
