2 weeks!

Today we had our 2 week doctor appointment with Dr. Cox. Everything went well, aside from the blood drawing from the heel. Poor Nana....and Jeremy! My mom took us to our appointment. I held Jeremy while they pricked his little heel for blood. I surprisingly held good composure, Nana on the other hand was a mess! His little cry just broke our hearts and they had to prick him twice. He survived it though. He's gaining weight like a good little boy and doc says he looks awesome! 

Happy 2 weeks buddy!

Good little boy!

 Well after my last post of having a little night owl he made a few changes! (Hope I don't jinx myself here, I did with the stretch marks dang it!) Anyway, our little Jeremy is sleeping SO great. I couldn't feel more lucky and blessed about it, especially with Mikey's work schedule. Little bug is sleeping in at least 4 hour blocks! So pretty much once in the middle of the night and then maybe one more time as Mikey is getting ready to leave for work, it's perfect! Nursing is going well. I was a little worried in the beginning but we seem to have it down...for the most part! He has this little smile he doesn't even know he has, I LOVE IT! His little Ooo faces just melt my heart. How did I live without this little fella?! I mean...seriously....look at this face!

Night owl

We have a little night owl on our hands! Today we are working on keeping little bug awake a little longer during the day and or napping when he does. The nights may be tough but we can't help but fall in love all over again every morning!

Third Trimester

Ok it's time to share my feelings on this third trimester. Not sure if waiting until now was such a good idea!!

The downers:
Hi, my belly is huge and no I'm not carrying twins, thanks for asking.
Yes the baby is still in me, haven't had him yet, thanks for asking.
"Mae I need you to put my shoes and socks on my feet, I can't bend over! Thanks doll"
Oh congrats baby you found your way up to mommy's ribs. Oh boy.
Can I order a porta-potty please?! Like seriously, how many times do I really HAVE to go as apposed to just feeling like I have to?
Yoga...you thought this would be on the good list didn't you?! WRONG!
OUCH. Constant pain, hoping these tears will be tears of joy before too long.

The uppers:
Let me think....
....give me a minute...
Oh, my belly does the wave...like nobody's bidness!
Still no stretch marks *knock on wood, NOW*
As far as swelling goes, I think I'm one of the lucky ones. Though I can't wear my own wedding ring it's not obvious to others that I've retained too much water.
"Can I get that for you? Kim, go rest, go home early" Sweet words I hear often. Lots of help.
Thanks mom for folding our laundry.....again! Again, LOTS of help!
Thank you for rubbing my feet, back, bum, and always loving me Mikey! (seriously the most patient loving love of my life. He's been amazing.)

Regardless of how much pain this little Jeremy is causing my body right now I still can't believe how much love I already have for him. Though his kicks are more on the painful side now, I find myself still enjoying them and I know he's growing nice and big in there. (Doctor is already estimating 7.5-8lbs) This journey will soon be over and new exciting whirlwind chapter will begin. Bring it on. We have plenty to learn and we have so many loved ones around us to teach us. Thank you to everyone for your constant love, concern, chats, shoulders to cry on, laughter over the silliness of all this and just for being a part of our lives!
Let's meet this little guy shall we?!

Showered with Love

Over the past few months I've been able to enjoy showers given by family, friends, ward members and coworkers! Our little Jeremy is SO loved! I can't wait to show him how much and to dress him in everything and wrap him all the fun blankets and read him his new books! We are just a few short weeks away from meeting him and we are going CRAZY!!! I'm overwhelmed the generosity of everyone. I love hearing how others are so excited to meet him too, maybe they're just sick of the exhausted ornery look on my face! I only have a pictures from a couple showers but here they are in no particular order!

Family Time

Back in July the Simmons crew got together again for Family Lagoon Day, though this year we were short a few family members and we didn't get matching shirts, we still had a great time! Because I was unable to ride anything we decided to give Lagoon-a-Beach a try this year, everyone really seemed to enjoy it and we think we'll keep doing that for years to come. It was so relaxing for me and my prego belly to just float around the lazy river! Mike was our brave soul and had a blast on the sky coaster. We have video of it but at the moment the SD card is missing so we'll have to upload it later but it made his summer!! Unfortunately we didn't really get any pictures this year, so there you have it, we went, we rode, we exhausted ourselves and got home in one piece!!
