Lots of stuff....and prenatal appointment #1

It's been a while since I've been able to blog due to my lack of internet. I can get it on my phone but I cannot access this website which sucks because I would probably update at least once a week. So here's the update....

I'm pregnant again! Nine weeks as of Sunday. Mike, Weston and I are super excited. I'm speaking on behalf of Weston since he's only 6 months old and has no clue what's going on. Weston and Baby Dos will be all of 13 months apart if I go full term. I was two weeks early last time so who knows what will happen this time around. Does this make me crazy? Maybe, but I think in the long run I'm going to love having two so close. This baby was by no means an accident. Not that we were actively planning but we were just seeing what God had in store and obviously He had enough faith in us to raise these two children so close, so I have enough faith in us as well.

I had my first prenatal appointment on December 17th. I saw Dr. Nichelson. She is super nice and didn't yell at me for not getting my uterus back in shape. Baby Dos was measuring a tad small but nothing to worry about. I'm at a fairly decent weight, not my dream weight but not horrible. So far everything is looking good. I wasn't able to hear the heart beat cause the little one was so, well, little. As such, I go back January 7th to take another peak! I'm super excited! When I get a chance I will scan and upload the first little picture I got of my little blur baby.

I'm still nursing Weston but I think I will be stopping soon, especially if Dos measures small again. He will have gotten almost 7 months of milky goodness and I could definitely do without the late night feedings which I'm hoping formula will diminish.

Along with this pregnancy I've been pretty much an emotional wreck. This week is especially hard since Mike left today for Cambodia. He won't be back until January 10th. It hasn't even been 24 hours and I miss him like crazy. It's very difficult when your other half is halfway across the world. God called him over there and I'm trusting Him to bring Mike back safe and sound. I'm sure he will be extremely blessed during this whole experience.

Updates on Weston. The little bugger is growing so much! He's doing so many new things! I half expect him to just get up and walk and any moment. He's sitting up, rolling over, scooting forward, trying to get on hands and knees (hasn't quite gotten there yet), eating crackers (thanks to Uncle Donnie). He's very observant and extremely pleasant! He loves people and food which makes him a true Ferrante through and through. He's going to make an awesome big brother! There's no teeth yet but I assume they'll be coming soon due to grand waterfall that is Weston's mouth. I love this kid so much. He melts my heart everyday. He definitely takes after his Daddy!

Other news....I'm not so sure. Christmas was amazing. Having a child makes you look forward to it 10x more! Even if all he wants is to eat the wrapping paper! Mike really out-did himself. I woke up and found numerous presents beautifully wrapped just for me. This made me cry of course not because I was overwhelmed but because I felt like a horrible wife for not getting him anything. (These hormones! I tell ya...) You see we had each taken a certain amount of money and spoiled ourselves with it, which is what the plan was supposed to be. He did spend his money on himself but then he was blessed by some members of the church so he went and spoiled me. I was so grateful and still am.

I'm spending New Years at my sisters. I'm looking forward to being able to spend a few days with her. I will probably sleep through the actual New Year since that's what Weston will be doing. I'll be sure to give him two kisses at midnight. One from me and one from Daddy. To be honest, I'm looking forward to rest! And speaking of, it's after midnight now and I need to be going to bed. Nighty night.

Miranda!!! I am so excited for you! Congratulations!!!!

I know I am ready for Dos soon myself, because I don't feel sorry for you or miserable about the thought of being pregnant. My heart kind of hurts and I think "Oh, I want another baby." I just got there in the past few weeks, so maybe baby 2 soon. : )

Thanks! I'm really excited as well. I say go for number two! I'm really looking forward to Weston and Dos being so close! How old is Bennet? I think after this one we may be done, especially if it's a girl.
