Favorite Moment This Week: 
That my mom has spent the past week with me unfortunately it was because..

Last Tuesday, I was having major contractions & thought I was in labor. 
I was admitted to the hospital & given more medicine 
to stop the contractions as well as for a UTI.
At the time I was 3 cm dilated.
My mom flew in that night & has been here ever since. 
She has cleaned my house, helped me reorganize my kitchen,
 rearrange my furniture and exercised almost everyday. 
Wednesday, I also went into the hospital due to contractions again.
Thursday, was probably the worst day.
Friday, I had a doctor's appointment & there was no change.

So thankful my mom has been here to help
& that Mr. Army Man's chain of command has been so understanding.
Hopefully this baby boy will arrive before my mom has to leave. 
We are so ready!!

Looking Forward To:  
Holding my sweet baby boy in my arms & kissing his chubby cheeks.

  1. I have enjoyed every minute (even the 5" of snow) and i'm so thankful I have a great boss!
