First Pool Visit

On Sunday, 5.29.11, Baby C got to go swimming for the first time. We live in a gated community that has three pools, I assume that we will be spending a ton of time there this summer!

24 Week Check-Up

On Monday (5.16.11), we had our regular 24 week check-up. It started with the normal vital checks. Our nurse then gave us this bag...

It contained some fun reading, coupons and samples. But, it also contains the orange drink for our 28 Week glucose test. She gave us our directions.

A student (our office is a 'practing office') came in to measure my fundal height. This was the first time that they have taken a measurement. I measured right around 24 weeks. Perfect! She also found the heartbeat with the doppler. She said it was around 150bpm.

The Dr. then came in basically said all was well and answered a few questions. And, that was that. It was a pretty uneventful appointment. Wonderful!

Our 28 week appointment has been set for 6.17.11. We also scheduled our elective 4d ultrasound for 6.29.11!

10 Months

On May 16, 2011 Baby C turned 10 Months old!

She is army crawling, crawling like a big girl, sitting up by herself, pulling herself up on EVERYTHING and starting to walk along the side of the couch. She loves to wave; even if it's backwards. She eats everything we put in front of her. She can fit in 9 month clothes, but also 12 month. Her hair is starting to get thicker and even a little longer. She still has 6 teeth, but I think more are going to pop through anytime now. She has finally started mastering the sippy cup, but only those with straws.

Easter Pictures

I am a little behind getting this posted, so I will just post pictures.

Before most of the fun got started.
After stops at my sister's and my DH's parent's homes, we came back home to celebrate Baby C's First Easter. (Yes, her Easter basket was a laundry basket.)
 Don't worry, she was being supervised.

Another Amazing Meeting

Thursday after work and picking up Baby C from the babysitter's, we quickly got things ready and headed down the road. We stopped for a quick snack and got to the agency right on time. Walking in, I always have butterflies. I know that she can see us out the window, but we can't see her.

When we got to the agency's door, one the SWs (the one that worked with our BM a lot), met us at the door. She said something to the point of, "there's a lot of excitement in there!" When the door opened, we saw our BM, her friend (the one that was there for the delivery and our first meeting) and an intern (who had been adopted and spoke to our homestudy education class).

Smiles were plastered on all of our faces. The usual talk proceeded. How was everyone? Look at Baby C go! Etc... Baby C's BM saw her last in February; Baby C has changed a ton since then (teeth, sippy cup, new foods, crawling, pulling up, waving, 'talking' more and so much more). Everyone was filled with excitement. Baby C played, played and played some more. She even took off her shoes and socks to get comfy.

We were expecting to see our SW there (the one who conducted our homestudy education courses and had completed most of our home visits). We had confirmed with her the night before, but knew that her daugther was expecting at any moment. Well, Thursday was the day! But, we were fine without her. We are actually getting to the point where we are ready to start meeting outside of the agnecy and perhaps without a SW there.

Baby C's BM told us about the day she received the first email we had since her. She was thrilled! She brought tons of gifts and cards for Baby C and us. Some of the cards we opened there and others we read in the car ride home and later the next day.
You can probably tell by looking at the clothes where Baby C's BM works at part-time.
Yes, Baby C's BM loves cards!

During the meeting we also gave Baby C's BM two cards. One was for Birthmother's Day. She had no idea that it was even celebrated. The other card was for her upcoming birthday. We bought this charm and braclet for her.
She loved it! She had her friend put it on her immediately.

The meeting lasted almost an hour and a half. We discussed meeting elsewhere next time.We asked about the BF coming and her mother. Hopefully, someday it will happen. We talked about her cancer. She is currently going through radiation and takes a chemo pills. Please keep her and her family in your thoughts. Hugs and few pictures later, it was time to head home. Until next time, we think of her often...

Baby C's Sixth Appointment

Baby C had her 9 month check-up on 4.28.11. She didn't have to have any shots, but did have to get a finger prick. This was to check her iron levels (her level was 12.5 and Dr. B wanted it to be at least 10). They would have also checked for lead, but Dr. B felt there was no need since all of the houses Baby C is around are relatively new.

Baby C's stats:
Height - 28"
Weight - 20lbs 8oz
Heard Circum. - 18"

Baby C is now in the 75% for weight and 65% for height. But, she is said to be proportional. The Dr. talked to us about flouride in water and the benefits for Baby C's teeth. If we feel the need, there is a coating that we can get for her teeth at the next visit.

Baby C Swinging

Last Saturday (4.30.11), Baby C got to play at the park for the first time. She still doesn't like the slide too much, but loves to swing!

Tomorrow we are meeting up with Baby C's BM. We are excited! We always look forward to these visits. We will be celebrating Birthmother's Day (which is Saturday) and her birthday which is in a few days!

Please keep us in your thoughts. She doesn't know that we are pregnant. I hope this goes well...
