I love that when I am making anything with black olives, half of them disappear into Collin's tummy before dinner is ready.  The grin of his face is priceless.

So much going on right now.
A friend from the Massillon ward lost her baby at 38 1/2 weeks.  Aaron is having a hard time watching me suffer the pains of pregnancy right now.
A friend from our last ward is have marriage issues.
One of my best friends has been in and out of the hospital all week.  Last night she was sent home after a blood clot scare.

Emotionally, I am a little overwhelmed. I am grateful for the love and support I have received in the last 2 weeks.

I wish I could have been pregnant two months earlier, so I would be able to attend 2 of my siblings weddings this summer.  I send all my love to them.

Back from State testing

Aaron had to cover a station for state testing.  He was able to request Barberton, which is close to Aaron's family.  Collin and I got to go with him.  We stayed Sat, Sun and part of Mon with Grandma C.  We went to church at our old ward, and we loved catching up with everyone.

Monday morning Aaron drove to Barberton, then came back to Grandma C's house to pick us up.  We spent the rest of the week at Aunt A.  We loved being there, but without a spare room, Collin didn't have a quiet place to sleep, so we had a very tired little boy.  By the end of the week, all Collin wanted to do was sleep.  He slept almost 15 hours straight when we got home.  We spent Saturday hanging out at home.

Aunt A's house was a lot of fun.  Collin got to play with his cousins, and the giggles were contagious.  They played Tea Party, animals, video games, and ball.  On the one warm say, Collin walked the 3 country blocks to the bus stop to pick up the kids, and then holding hands with the kids, walked the 3 long blocks back.  Collin had so much fun with them.

Blood Sugar is fine

After all the fuss, my blood sugar is fine.  The Dr. gave me something for the morning sickness at this last visit.  They are also testing my liver, kidney's and gall bladder for issues because I still have morning sickness.  If I don't hear anything, I am to assume it is fine.  I now have bi-weekly appointments with the OB/GYN.  Dylan is currently breach, but I have almost 2 months to get him to turn.  I will have to get another ultrasound to check in a month.

Collin and Aaron have started playing a new game of ball in the house.  Collin waits patiently for Daddy to get home, then Collin starts begging to play.  It gives me time to get dinner finished and set the table.  Collin laughs so hard the whole time, and his laughter is very contagious.
