-Eli has been doing great in his big boy bed. He will wake up maybe once a night, if at all. But when he does wake up, he won't say anything. He gets off of his bed and curls up in a corner of his room and stays there for who knows how long! I feel like i am so connected to Eli that I will wake up and know he is awake (probably because I woke up with him millions of times a night until recently!). The monitor shows nothing in his bed so I go into his room and there he is in the corner, laying down in the fetal position wide awake smiling at me. He is a silly kid. :) Luckily he goes to back to sleep easily.
-I am almost 13 weeks along with baby. We had our second OB appointment where they use the doppler to hear the baby's heartbeat. The doctor put it on my abdomen and we waited to her the joyous sound......and we waited......and we waited. As each minute passed with no heartbeat, I was scared out of my mind! It took 10 minutes for the heartbeat to be found. And even then, it was faint and I felt like a bad mommy already because I could not hear it at first! :( But then I did and it was the sweetest sound! Since my pants used to fit snug on me anyway, I am now getting into maternity pants because my belly is growing. Unfortunately, since I was pregnant with Eli in the summer, I don't have very many pants and long sleeved tops. So off to consignment I go! And maybe craigslist too. :) We financially challenged people have to be creative! :)
-We were going to go to our church's Harvest Party tonight, but unfortunately Eli (and myself) are sick with colds. Eli was up a million times last night because he couldn't breathe through his nose. Poor little guy. So I am sad to miss the party because we have never been to it before. But I think the three of us will start a Halloween tradition spending some time watching 'The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown' in our PJ's with hot chocolate curled up under a blanket on the couch. We don't get very many trick or treaters, but I do have a bowl of candy for those that do come. This is what Eli was going to go as this year:
He looks scared to be in the costume and that is because he was not happy about it. He chose the costume, but he is very sensitive when it comes to how clothes feel and tags and such, so he was not a happy camper in this get up. The costume also came with this huge inflatable helmet and he didn't like that either. So maybe it is best we can't go tonight. :)
Anyway, HAPPY HALLOWEEN, be safe and have fun!
