2 | First Tri Ultrasound The three of us went for my first trimester ultrasound last Tuesday! Owen was super into the water dispenser in the waiting room! I think he has been so eager to see "our baby" as he calls him/her, so we definitely wanted him there. This was the first time Keith has been able to see the baby, while I've gotten to on two other occasions at my doctor appointments. The baby is growing right on track and even measured 2 days ahead of schedule. They checked for arms and legs, saw the perfectly developing brain as well as the spine. It was great to see and know that everything is progressing well. This baby is a mover too! There was lots of kicking, waving and flopping going on during the ultrasound too. I'm feeling a little movement here and there, but mostly just flutters.
After the picnic we headed to Target for some necessities and ended up picking up a Slip n Slide too! Owen has been talking about them for over two weeks, and I kept telling him we'd have to wait a bit to buy one while I thought about whether or not it would be a good idea. I ended up deciding that it would be a brilliant way to kill time outside this summer on days when we're (because I'm back to sleeping when my child sleeps. #pregnant) not napping. We spent an hour and half playing around with it. Owen was really cautious and didn't get much momentum, which I was happy about. He really likes the pool at the end of it!
4 | First & Last The other day, on the last day of O's class, I posted a side-by-side of Owen on the first and last day of school on Instagram. I realized later that the "first day" photo was actually from January! LOL! Major mom fail on my part. So I had to right my wrong and do the real side-by-side here! He really does look older, doesn't he?
5 | Disney Bound! We're off to Disneyland next week! We had this week planned for our vacation for so long, but it took us forever to decide where to go. We bounced between San Diego, Tahoe, Hawaii and Disneyland for the longest time, but couldn't make a decision. We finally booked our trip a couple weeks ago when we realized Owen is now 40 inches, which opens up a whole new group of rides for him to try (Splash Mountain, Star Tours, and Radiator Springs to name a few) and that this would be our last chance to do those as a family until B2 (the baby) is old enough to ride. And I got clearance from my doctor to go on whatever I want! We're super excited about this trip! You can see our other Disneyland trips here and here.
And now we're off to the gym for swimming for O and a workout for me! I'm finally feeling better (no more nausea and a little less exhaustion) after a 2 month break from my workouts and I'm looking forward to getting back into a (modified) routine! Happy Friday!
PS - I'm linking up with Momfessionals and September Farm today for their Friday link ups!
