Worried update.

Sorry for my lack of an update. I had to wait for the test results, and those days sucked, to say the least. Thankfully the tests came back negative for infections and after having to call the office to hound for results, I found out there are no chromosonal abnormalaties.

However, the fluid is still around her heart and has not decreased. It is being treated as a normal variant, and I have yet another ultrasound next week. I am not sure if these ultrasounds are going to continue every few weeks or not. (Baby girl hates to be bothered and refuses to show her face.) I was released from the high risk doctor, so that is great news.

In fun news, we went to DisneyWorld the other week, which contributed to my lack of an update post.

I just realized I never posted about our anatomy scan. It's a girl! However, during the scan a few weeks ago, the tech couldn't get all the measurements needed. We went back last week to try again.

I knew something was off when the tech asked me if we were seeing the dr. that day as well.  Apparently, she has fluid around her heart. So, tomorrow we head to a high risk doctor for more scans. It's been a long few days to wait for answers, which I hope include nothing but good news tomorrow. If you could spare some good thoughts my way it would be much appreciated.

Pigs are flying.

Yes, they are, and for a few reasons.
One, the fact that I am blogging. I know it has been forever. Two, my toddler now sleeps through the night the majority of the time, AND takes naps in his crib. It only took 15.5 months for the night sleeping (ok, he came in our bed last night), but we have more nights where he actually stays in his crib and sleeps. Amazing.
And the biggest reason pigs are flying? I am pregnant. 10 weeks and 2 days pregnant to be exact.

Shh, it's a secret!

I have a one year old!

I can't believe my sweet baby is one today. A year ago today, in 24 minutes to be exact, I experienced the best moment of my life when my boy was laid on my chest.

This past year has been the quickest of my life. It has also been one of the hardest, most sleep deprived, but absolute best and most amazing year of my life. Our little man cracks me up and wears me out every day.

We have a big bash planned for Saturday. Thankfully my husband didn't mind the huge pinterest inspired project he had to do for me. Pictures to follow of the party. Promise.

And here is our last monthly photo. I am going to miss taking these every month. Though, I won't miss attemtping to find a onesie that fits him. By the looks of things, he is pretty pumped this is the last time he will be sporting the stick-on tie.

I wasn't born to the best dad,

but my little man was.

Sidenote: I do have a (step)dad, who came into my life when I was older. He's awesome. Here's the proof.

"Breastfeeding is for poor people."

Yes, this was said to me by one of our friends, half-joking, half-serious. His reasoning behind this? Breastfeeding is pushed so that those that use goverment assistance aren't spending more tax dollars on formula. I let him know that I planned on breastfeeding until at least a year. Oh, and then he found out we cloth diaper as well. Apparently, this information together makes one ask, "What are you, hippies now?"

"Free yourself" & "Support the economy and buy formula," could also be heard that day.

I don't make this shit up, people. Sometimes, I wish I did.

It's been too long.

My little man is 8.5 months old already! Here is a somewhat recent photo.
Next up on my blogging list is photos of our place. It's finally time I show you what it looks like to live in a "barn"!
