We ended up having a really great Memorial day! We grilled at Adam's place and had steaks, corn, and potato salad. We also had chips with guacamole (my favorite!), queso, veggie tray, fruit with fruit dip, and strawberry short cake for dessert! I really love food these days as you will get to see in my belly picture! :)
Yesterday the boys and I decided to go out and play on the trail with side walk chalk. It was blistering hot but we had fun. After we came in, a bee that had hitched a ride in my shirt, stung me. I just had been stung a couple weeks ago and had a severe reaction so this time I drove straight to the Dr. By the time I got there I couldn't even breathe, but after a shot of epi and some meds, I was good as new. Now I have to carry around an epi pen and pray the bees stay away from me! But the trip was worth it since I got some cute photos of my boys!
I try to take them somewhere everyday as we tend to get cabin fever. It is getting more and more difficult though as the weather heats up and as I get bigger. My sciatic and round ligament pain is pretty bad these days. I only have eight more weeks though! Yikes! My summer classes start on monday and I am trying to get everything finished before then. Matthew's clothes, bedding, and diapers are all washed and ready. I think I am just about finished with Matthew prep! Just have to knock off a couple more things on my to do list.
Oh and I have to share!!!!! Ej is fully weaned! It has been 2 weeks now and he is doing so great. He doesn't even ask anymore and since he has weaned he has been sleeping through the night for the first time ever. It only took 28 months! Now if only I could sleep through the night, Ha!
Also ECI came yesterday and EJ was evaluated to see if he needs therapy. He is about a year behind emotionally and in speech. Cognitive and physical development is only a few months behind. Basically, they think all the delay is due to his medical issues and the year he was very sick. No long term cause and no autism diagnosis. Basically, none of the news was surprising to me. I knew he was a little behind in speech and in emotional development. However I am relieved to hear that they believe he will completely catch up in 6 months-to a year! He starts therapy next week and will have it every other week. With everything that could have been, I praise God for what is!
This is turning out to be a longer post that I anticipated, so I will just share my big ole 30 week belly and leave you with that scary image! Have a wonderful rest of the week!!
