Today we had our level two ultrasound. Everything still looks great!!! They will look again in about 8 weeks just to reaffirm that everything is going well. The baby is measuring a little bigger then how far along I am, but I figured that is to come with the big babies Nate and I make. When I was pregnant with Kaden, I was asked with all of the ultrasounds towards the end of my pregnancy, if I was sure that I had my due date right. Ummm, yeah, saying that you gave it to me ; ). It was right...but the 9lb 13 oz baby boy would explain the questions.
Before leaving today, I explained to Kaden that grandpa would be taking him to school and picking him up from school. Kaden gave me a kiss and then typed "bye-bye" in his little talking device and waved bye-bye to me. He then typed "bye-bye, Ava," and waved bye-bye to my belly. I don't know if he was confused that last time grandpa was taking him to and from school was when I was with Ava at the hospital or if he is getting confused about mommy being pregnant again and Ava not being around. It broke my heart and I just explained to him that his baby brother is in mommy's belly and that I would be back home later that day. I think it would help him understand if we could decide on a name for the baby and start calling him by that.
Speaking of names...although the poll is over, we are still undecided. To let you all know...I won!!! I like the name Liam and Nate likes Talen (however you want to spell it). If it was up to Kaden it would be Elmo, Max (which I kind of like, but I know he is thinking of Max and Ruby...one of his favorite cartoons) there is a few more that I can't think of right now. I have come up with several names that catch my interest, but Nate is stuck on Talen. The other day I texted him a name I had thought of and he texted me back with "Talen." I told him he needs to open his mind up and think of other names and the text I got next was "Turbo." What a funny, funny man.
I have finally started feeling baby movements. I have been waiting and waiting. This is one of my favorite things about being pregnant. I don't feel strong movements yet, but withing the last three days or so I have been feeling them every once and a while. It makes me more and more excited to have this new baby in our lives.
We are so lucky and blessed to be given another opportunity to be parents, to experience a new love and get that love returned back to us. We are lucky and blessed to have these three wonderful lives with us (physically or not). We are lucky and blessed to experience a love that some others never get a chance. We are lucky and blessed to be trusted by God with his special gifts and I will forever be grateful for that .
Kaden, Angel Ava and baby boy
You three will forever have love that will never be taken away from you, but instead get stronger and stronger with every second, every hour, every day, every year. Mommy and daddy are in awe of each of you. The lessons you have taught us, the strength and the patience you have given us, could have never been given to us by any other person. You each are miracles to us in your own different ways. To say that we love you is an understatement...we could never explain how deep our feelings are for you all. You will forever be our greatest loves.
Loving you always,
mommy and daddy
