Funny story

This afternoon, Dominic and I went to a nearby playground. While we
were there he took an interest in an area with a spaceship that can be
moved from planet to planet. After he "flew" the spaceship to each
planet I would tell him the name of the planet and he would repeat the
name after me. Everything was going well until we got to the planet
Uranus. This is how the exchange went down.
Me: this is Uranus. Say Uranus.
Dominic: My Anus.
Me: (cracking up) No, say Ur-anus.
Dominic: My. Anus.

I lost it at that point along with every other parent around us. It's
just one of those funny stories I hope I don't forget!

18 Weeks

Pregnancy Highlights:

How Far Along
: 18 Weeks
Size of baby: Baby is the size of a sweet potato!
Maternity Clothes: bought some maternity shirts and have been holding my shorts together with rubber bands.
Gender: It's a BOY! Bennett Robert
Movement: Not sure if I'm feeling anything-the last time I remember what it was like to feel a baby inside me it was knees jabbing me in the side. It's hard to distinguish right now what could be flutters.
Sleep: Not sleeping well at all lately. I swear this child is using my bladder as a trampoline.
What I miss: Lately a glass (or two!) of wine sound realllly good.
Cravings: Not really anything. I think I'm back to the point where everything sounds gross.
Symptoms: A bladder the size of a pea, heartburn, backpain
Best Moment this week: Winning a small battle with my neurologist to be able to postpone my treatment for 6 weeks after Bennett is born.
Next Appointment: August 31st

It's a .........


We found out on Wednesday that we are having another baby boy!!! I am so excited for Dominic to get a little brother and a little best bud! It's doubly nice because Dominic was born in November and this baby will be born in early January so we will save a lot of moolah on clothing!

As of today, his name will be...

Bennett Robert G.
