Marys' First Year

I have been wanting to make a scrapbook for Mary for some time, but never seem to have the time to do so. I found a great website for making digital scrapbooks. Its called and its free for the first 14 days and only $5.99 per month. I'm going to try it out this weekend and see if I like it. In the mean time, here is a photo collage a made of Mary!!

37 week ultrasound.

I went to the doctor yesterday. Had my second ultrasound. Lizzie looks wonderful! Her lungs look to be functioning well on their own there is no reported problems with her stomach. She looks to be about 6 lbs 15 oz and is growing rapidly. She even has a full head of hair!

My 37 week appointment was just after the untrasound and I met with a nurse I had never seen before. I had the Strep test done and my first "check". No diolation to this point. Which is a good thing, since that means I shouldn't deliver anytime soon. Sean bought Moms plane ticket and she will be coming out here on the 14th of Oct. I will be 40 weeks on the 15th, and if I don't go into labor by then, my doctor will induce me the following day if I choose to. We're all keeping our fingers crossed that I don't go before then!!!! My next appointment is on the 5th.

36 weeks pregnant!

Its offical, I have only 4 weeks to go until the birth of this baby. I have to admit I'm a little nervous as my Mother will be flying in for the birth so Sean can be with me. The problem is she can only stay for a week and I have no idea when this baby will come. My track record for giving birth is about 50/50. I can either go early or be late. (due Oct 15th) If I go into labor before Mom gets here, I will be completely alone for the delivery. Sean can't bring 5 small children to the hospital. I have another ultrasound on Wednesday as they were a little concerned with the babys belly being distended in the last viewing. My appointment follows right after. I guess all I can do is tell my doctor the situation and see what she thinks. for now its just a waiting game.

First day of School

We started school this past Monday. After staying up until well past 11pm decorating the classroom, this is the finished product! The boys were thrilled the next morning to see what I had done for them. Declan wasn't quite as excited as Cian was for the first day of school, but they both did really well. Sean was a big help with Religion and PE, however we didn't get done with school until 4pm. 30 min classes were just too much, so I shortened them to 20 mins. We were finished by 1pm. I have found a bump or two with Cian. As I have said in the past, he has NO attention span or desire to do any work. I have found he can't write really at all or even color. (He doesn't understand to stay in the lines) The pre-k workbooks he is no where near ready to use, so if any of my homeschooling Moms have any suggestions, please email me.

Hard at work!
