I saw this ad this morning while watching the news and it brought me to tears…love this from P&G. We are always so proud of our kids (most of the time!) and getting ready for the upcoming Olympics is exciting! What’s your favorite part of the Olympics to watch? I always like to tune in each day for a few minutes and see what’s happening, I especially love watching the gymnastics.
We’re still trying to catch up around our house from the lightning that struck our house when the storms came through on Friday. I went up to check on Luke during it all and while sitting with him in his bed the outlet blew sparks right in front of us! We have a list of other items throughout the house that got fried, thankfully it’s a relatively short list and since yesterday we do have the air con back working! The satellite guy comes tomorrow but it’s really not the end of the world not having our usual TV…good to know that we CAN survive without it! Ha!
I had my ultrasound Friday afternoon and my parents were able to be there with us to join in on the fun! I mentioned the date and time to my mom and within minutes she had booked half the day off work so she could be there, have I mentioned that she’s a dedicated Grandma to all 6 of her Grandkids?!
We are having a gender reveal party this Saturday with friends and family so we don’t know what it is just yet. We’ve got a baker making a cake for us with either blue or pink icing in the middle of the cake and we’ll find out on Saturday with everyone whether it’s a boy or girl! We didn’t find out with Luke so this is particularly exciting for us and we’re thrilled to have friends and family involved in the fun! The baby looked great and it was unreal to see the 4D pictures of the baby too! I have to go in for another scan in 8 weeks to make sure the Marginal Previa (placenta too close to the cervix) has resolved itself – I’m not stressing about it but I really don’t want to have a C-Section so hopefully that won’ t be an issue for our plans for a natural delivery. My doula has reassured me that it almost always resolves itself with the growth of the uterus so here’s hoping it works that way for us too!
By the end of tomorrow our house should almost be back to normal after the storm and we’ll only be a couple days away from finding out if Luke is having a baby brother or sister! Anyone care to guess if it’s a boy or girl??!
