Long lost viewers! Hello! Thanks for continuing to try and check up on us, sorry so static! Our apartment complex had an 8-hour power outage last week and we haven’t been able to get our Internet back since then. Major web withdrawals, ugh! I am an Internet addict, it’s official – I’m so behind on e-mails. All you wonderful friends! If you sent me an e-mail and I haven’t responded- now you know. So I’m publishing this here from a free wifi spot a few blocks away from our house. I hate not being able to feel connected.
The weather has dropped back down to the 70’s. Words can’t describe just how much happier I am! I can actually go outside, and feel good outside. I struggle in the heat, I was pretty miserable outside if it was over 90.We have an annual pass to the Irvine Regional Park, it’s only good for the calendar year so we have been there all the time. I took my camera yesterday on our outing and tried to document a bit. It’s gorgeous up there right now. Finn has started calling it ‘Peacock Park’. We go up and feed and the ducks and chase the peacocks. Yesterday was a treat because we went through the pumpkin patch. So fun! If you live close by, call me! 7148380305 we will go ANYTIME! The boys love it, and going in is free! You don’t actually have to buy a pumpkin if you’ve already bought a bunch. They have a ton of activities
Quick update on pregnancy stuff since I mentioned it in my last post, had my first ultrasound since I was 22 weeks. 33 weeks now. Baby is 4 pounds, can’t begin to express how happy I felt. The specialist who worked with me earlier did it. She is intimidating, not very soft. But definitely capable, just very matter of fact. She looked at everything and said things look great so I feel very good. This woman is the one -to put it bluntly- is the one that looked at me straight faced and very flatly told me that the baby probably had Downs Syndrome. So her telling me that the bowel was functioning and baby was good size it felt like coming full circle. I start going in next week twice a week for an hour appointment for stress monitoring as well as an ultra sound for fluid. Why, the monitoring? Well… they think I’m at risk for having a stillborn. Now you’re all up to date. I feel good. I am really excited for him to join our family. I’m almost there.
