26 weeks, 6 days

Our little sticker face got some good news yesterday: He has tested out of speech therapy! This is wonderful news!! A year ago he was not talking even a little bit and I never imagined we would be at this point today. I'm so proud of our amazing little boy.

My contractions in the past week have been super unpredictable. One day (like yesterday) I will have only four contractions all day and another day I will have 12+. The doctor told me yesterday to just keep doing what I'm doing. Everything checked out great at the appointment, minus the fact that I have already gained almost all of the weight I gained in my entire pregnancy with Elijah. Ugh. Oh well.

Elijah is loving preschool! He usually comes home utterly exhausted, but he has not cried once about going there. It is so cute to listen to him sing the songs he learns during circle time. Again, so so proud of my little preschooler.

That's all for now!

You're so stinkin''ll melt away the pounds as soon as you have Zooter.

I am so glad Elijah is loving school and no more speech therapy that is so awesome.

Dont worry about the pounds they will come off after the baby is born.

Take of yourself.

I just wanted to let you know that even though I'm a slacker blogger (haven't posted on my own blog for weeks and rarely leave comments for others anymore) I am a dedicated reader! So glad that the bedrest is working and you are keeping baby number 2 safe inside. Love that Elijah has tested out of speech and is enjoying preschool. What a big boy! Life is looking a lot different for you guys now, isn't it? I couldn't be happier for your little family. :)

Kathy cracks me up with her comment - Zooter! Yes, you just keep doing what your doing! It is the cutest thing when they start learning those songs. This morning Evan & I were practicing his spelling words and he was singing Y-E-L-L-O-W spells yellow - like the early morning sun when the day has just begun - Y-E-L-L-O-W spells yellow to the tune of If your Happy And You Know It. Love it.
