QUICK BABY UPDATE : We had our check up today I'm 13 weeks and 4 days and it was such a relief to hear the heartbeat. I don't feel completely calm yet about everything because it was between 14 and 15 weeks that we lost our little boy last time so a few more weeks and I'll be able to start enjoying this a bit more. We see the specialist next Thursday to check baby out and make sure everything is measuring correctly and is in the right place and ultimately to check my incompetent cervix and see what it's doing so far. They plan to put the circlage in Monday, July 27th and for me I think that will be a very defining day that this pregnancy is a go.

We're still supper excited and have big plans for how we're going to find out the sex of the baby (I'll tell you about that some other time) and we can't wait to call him or her by their name we have two girls names we love (and yes I'm hoping for a girl, some say I'm crazy, but I really feel like a girl would be an amazing treat for us) and we have one boy name that we love which was hard to come up with because there's so much behind Dealey's name we felt this one would need to be equally interesting (at least to us). So we wait we hope to find out towards the end of August what we're having!

Dealey goes in for his 2 year check up tomorrow so that should be exciting he still weighs 29 lbs according to my grandmother's scale which is what he weighed at 16 months so we'll see but I know he's taller. He's a crazy man and so freaking full of energy it's nuts. He can literally run around in circles forever and has at my parents house many times. He too is supper excited about baby as much as he understands. But he hugs and kisses my belly without direction almost every day and this morning he said good morning to the baby which was too sweet. So I'm excited to see how he does in the coming months as we start to prepare babies room and he can see some more physical change in his surroundings and in me.

For now that's all, I'll have more news and a new picture of baby next week!

Yay! Can't wait to see that picture. And how sweet is it that Dealey is already embracing his role as a big brother. :-) It would be so fun to see him kiss on a little sister, but just as much fun to see him teach a little brother how to run around in circles.
