Bumpdate: Weeks 25-27

Hi there, people! So sorry for the lack of updates, but life just has to come first...and it's been busy. I started doing contract therapy for Huntsville City Schools, so I'm working about 19 hours a week (suhweet deal I'll tell ya!), Silas is a wild man, and Adam just started back for his fall semester and is working over 40 hours a week. He was so excited for his first day back....

Silas turns 2 in just over a week and I can't even believe it! I'll post a more detailed update on him soon, but for now here are some highlights:

 Watching a movie.

Being a bully to Daddy.

 This is what he does when he hears the train. He's saying "Choo!"

 Listening to music with Daddy...

...and dancing to Jack White.

Our other little, guy, Elijah seems to be doing very well. At our ultrasound, Elijah was breech and we had a pretty honest discussion with my doctor as to options we would have if he stays that way. We really want to do an unmedicated, vaginal birth again and I'd prefer if he were head down for that. I think he may have turned because I've been feeling more movement up top and to the sides, thank the Lord! If we come to your mind, would you join with us in praying for Elijah and I to have a safe, vaginal delivery? We would very much appreciate your intercession :)

Let's see how the belly has grown:

How far along: 27 weeks

Total weight gain: 15-17 lbs at this point

Maternity clothes: Rocking my maternity jeans and pants for work, but it's still just too hot for this pregnant lady, so I wear a lot of running shorts and skirts until the weather is kinder.

Stretch marks: None

Sleep: I've been having a lot of nightmares and vivid dreams (mostly about Silas getting hurt) where I wake up saying "No, no, no!". There was even one night where I woke up crawling over Adam to "reach" Silas. Poor Adam usually wakes up when I do this, even if I don't.

Best moment of this week: The 3 day weekend and football season starting back!

Miss anything: Living without back pain! My sciatic nerve and aches and pains in my back are killing me this week. We have been doing a lot of rearranging the boys' room and I did scrub our shower and tub which may have something to do with it.

Movement: All the time! It's fun to watch my belly move when Elijah starts stretching or walking in place :)

Food cravings: Sweets are still my downfall this pregnancy, but I've also wanted a lot of fruit like grapes, strawberries, watermelon.

Anything making you queasy or sick: No, feeling pretty good.

Have you started to show yet: Yes, although some of the kids at the schools thought I had just eaten too much.

Gender: Boy!

Labor signs: No

Belly button in or out: Pretty much out at this point.

Wedding rings on or off: On

Happy or moody most of the time: Moody for sure. I had an awful experience at the post office where I bawled my eyes out in front of everyone because of the attitude of the post man. I cry so very easily right now.

Looking forward to: Celebrating Silas' 2nd birthday this coming weekend!! He's so stinking cute and full of personality. I mean, just look at him...

I hope you all have a safe and fun holiday weekend!
