it's a good day. winter will be over tomorrow. if only that meant the 70+ temps would stay.
we've i've began the nesting phase with baby k #2. after our 22 week sonogram, i think i realized this was REALLY happening and that we were more than halfway cooked with the new babe.
the sonogram went well and we got to see our little babe. little is right. after delivering the 8 lb 11.5oz chunk of banks, i figured this one would be right there along with b. the dr. said the babe is in the 30th percentile for week #22. i understand we still have a ways to go, but this was a surprise to me (and also relieved a tiny bit of my anxiety going into natural delivery #2.
the heartbeat was 153 and we are still waiting to find out what he or she is! dr. did say that the baby has one enlarged kidney that we will keep an eye on. after doing some research on what this might mean, i'm steering away from google and going with lots of prayers and patience until we can do some follow-up exams later down the road to make sure it's nothing to worry about.
we can't wait to meet you, baby!!! and for the record, i'm going to guess boy. it's a 50/50 shot, right?
Dr. K is the best. So thankful to have such a great doc.
our beloved nana and papa have the week off this week for spring break, so they've of course have done what every person wants to do on spring break: hang out with the grandchild and help prepare for their second. i cannot begin to explain what a blessing it is to have such great parents who unknowingly express a huge amount of love by their daily actions. they never miss a beat, always stopping to see banks when they visit the grocery store, or have 10 extra minutes on their way somewhere east of wichita. it means the world to us that banks is so loved.
that being said, i got a daily DAILY text & emails from papa last week about taking banks fishing over spring break.
"what day does banks want to fish in between basketball games this weekend?"
yes. in between basketball games, duh.
"hey banks, what time are we going fishing tomorrow?"
papa was excited. and so was banks.
we had a fabulous time fishing with papa and nana. we caught 10 fish in about an hour! crappie, bluegill and trout! they were biting like crazy, which was great to keep banks entertained. he's still learning the whole patience thing that goes along with fishing. so am i.
nana spent the day with banks on monday, and did what i should have done during the weekend - cleaned the kitchen, did my laundry and more than i could ever ask for. she's the best.
tuesday papa painted the nursery - neon mint (ekkk!) - which i'm in love with.
today i bought the baby's crib & dresser. today i'm 23 weeks pregnant. after helping the sister in law register for her upcoming baby shower, which i'm so excited to host!!, i've realized it's time to get out the good ole' baby gear.
17 more to go.
and happy march madness to all!!! rock chalk, go shocks!
