Happy Birthday to Me!

For my birthday I asked for money or gift cards so that I could buy this...

Tonight we went to Best Buy to buy it. Travis also bought me a memory card and the new photoshop! I am super excited to play with the camera this weekend.
I have a lot to learn about it.
We were joking around the other day about the number of cameras Travis has bought me. He has bought me a new one every year since we have been married. (4 years) Some people like jewelry, some like purses, and some like shoes. I like cameras! HA HA
I told him this one will last for a while. I now have a nice point and shoot and DSLR.
This afternoon I also had my weekly dr. appointment. Everything is still looking good. I am measuring right on schedule. I have made it past the point that I went into pre term labor with Haylee. We are taking everything day by day! The only problem I am having is some back pain. It's not like sciatica, its just lower back pain. During school and at home I am trying to stay off my feet as much as possible. However, having an almost 2 year old running around doesn't allow me to "relax" for extended periods of time. :o)
My next appointment is on Tuesday due to Thanksgiving.

Also, I am really excited about TWILIGHT! I have tickets for Saturday. I can not wait! I went to this website looking for T-Shirts. I was really tempted to get one but didn't want to pay the express shipping. Check it out if you are a "twilighter". They are really funny. That was my other problem, I couldn't figure out which one to get. :o)

My next post should be pictures taken from my new camera!

No Ma'am

We have been working really hard on manners since Haylee has begun talking. She will now say " no ma'am" everytime she answers something with a no. Here is Haylee's opinion about getting rid of the binkie.

This one is old but really cute! Haylee gets excited about "Hotdog" AKA Mickey Mouse! BTW when you ask her what kind of bday party she wants, her reply is "Hotdog, minnie mouse, pluto, elmo's world, and tinker bell (the new one)" What to do?!?! LOL

Weekend Recap

Our weekend recap!

We attended Sesame Street Live, went to the riverwalk, and the horse races all on Saturday! Here are some pictures of our trip.

Sesame Street Live

The 8.00 Elmo balloons! (BTW they sold out of them)
There were 2 guys with this amount of balloons!


When we returned home, this is what we saw!
We have been so close to finishing Madi's room for the past two weeks! We needed to move out furniture, move in furniture from Haylee's room, touch up some green and finish painting the chair rail.

Nathan and Melissa decided to surprise me for my bday by finishing it! We are so pleased with the final product!

Haylee doesn't have any more baby furniture! It is now a Big Girl Room!
We have some work to do in here to fill in the emptiness!

Last Thursday I went to my 27 week appointment. I went in early to do the glucose test. I passed by 1 point! An hour after drinking the glucose drink, my blood sugar was supposed to be less than 135. Mine was 134! So I passed this time around! I also saw the doctor for a regular check up. Everything is looking good. She gave me a steroid shot as a precautionary measure because of my history of pre-term labor. It is to help the baby with lung development. I will be going to the docotor weekly for check ups (already). I feel blessed that I have a doctor who is taking such good care of myself and baby Madison.
Friday I left work early to return to the doctor for the second dose of the steroid. It is a series of 2 shots that have to be within 24 hours of each other. It is a very thick injection that doesn't feel very good! You can feel the liquid travel in your veins and it burns for a few minutes. So, I will be returning to the doctor on Thursday for my weekly check up. After this week I will have passed the week that I went into pre-term with Haylee. We are trying to take it easy and taking it one day at a time.
On Saturday, my neighbor Kindell threw me a shower for baby Madi. It was family and close friends. Of course it was fabulous and we receieved many great gifts. We got a crib soother, mobile, swing, new bottles, some cute clothes, diapers, blankets, a Vera Bradley diaper bag, another monitor, a bather, hairbow holder, wall letters, gift cards, a boppy, a purple boppy cover, new bath towels, and some car seat toys. I am probably forgetting something... I have a few pictures to post.
The soon to be Big Sister and mommy!
Haylee checking out the gifts.
(Aunt "issy" made her big sister shirt and hairbow.)

This week will finish up busy as well. I have reading night at school, a doctor's appointment, and we are going to San Antonio this weekend. We are taking Haylee to Sesame Street Live to see:

We will also be celebrating my birthday. I will have many more pictures to post following this weekend!

26 Weeks

Here are a couple of cute pics recently taken of Haylee. I had one of her toys up on the counter so I could replace the batteries. She watched me do it and a little while later while we were cooking dinner she knew exactly what to do.

26 Weeks... Next Appointment is on Thursday.
