We dressed up Dylan for trick or treating! Up until that evening we weren't sure if we were going to dress him up and go. He got a couple of hand me down costumes not too long ago, so we had something on hand. Ryan had to be at the firehouse to hand out candy, so I just met him up there with our little bunny rabbit. Dylan seemed to really like being in the costume. He didn't mind the ears at all. He wanted to keep them on. We went to about 5 or 6 houses around the firehouse. Dylan did well. He said "trick or treat" about half of the time. He seemed to enjoy the whole experience. This was the first time we took out for Halloween.

Well I had another appointment last week. Everything looks good. I had to take my glucose test. My weight is looking great this time around. So far I have kept it well under control. Which is so unlike last time! As far as the glucose test goes, if I don't get a phone call, then everything is ok. So far, I have had no phone call, so I am hoping that is a good sign. When I was pregnant with Dylan I just barely passed that test. I go back to the doc on November 12th. And every 2 weeks after that as well.
For the last few days I have been so congested. Not sure what is going on with that. No other symptoms except the congestion. It could be my sinuses a little messed up from this back and forth weather we've been dealing with. Hopefully it doesn't develop into anything else. Fingers crossed!
Today while the baby was flopping around I had Dylan put his hand on my belly. He felt a kick. The look on his face made me think it freaked him out a little bit. Of course I laughed. He kinda smiled and took his hand off my tummy.
Still no news on Dylan's new room. Really I am getting worried that it wont be done before the new baby gets here. I just don't want all of that happening with a new baby in the house. Its just too much. I keep hoping that he will show up one day and get started.

Dylan's birthday went well. We had to different parties to avoid too many people being cramped in the house. He got a fantastic mix of toys and clothes. Everything was just right, and he was so thrilled with the toys. He just loves his new toys. I was so nice to sit and talk with everyone too. Everyone stuck around for a while after gifts and cake and talked, which made for a great day. Dylan was thrilled about his birthday cake as well. For some reason the boy is obsessed with birthday cake! He blew out the candles like a pro. He knew exactly how to do it.
So lets get through some pictures!
Here are the cakes for each day. One is spongebob, the other is dinosaurs!

Here he is getting some of his gifts

It was a good weekend, but I am so tired. Dylan is too. He went to bed early both nights since he missed his nap on both days. He fell asleep as soon as his head hit the pillow.
This week we both have doctor appointments. It is Dylan's 3 year check up on Wednesday and then I have my monthly appointment on Thursday. That day I have my glucose test. It will be a long appointment that day. Hopefully I pass and don't have to worry about gestational diabetes. I try to watch what I eat. Aside from this weekends cake, I have been doing so good at staying away from the sweets. So I hope it all goes well. After this appointment I will be starting the 2 week appoinments. At the end of the week I will cross over into my third trimester. I can't believe it! If only we could come up with a name for the little man!

Well I think I finally finished straightening up the house. I am so tired from the last couple of days. By no means is the house perfect, but it looks so nice! Why can't it stay this clean? I tried telling Dylan that today was his birthday. He just laughs for some reason. Everything is ready for the weekend. Hopefully most everyone shows up. It will just be nice to see everyone again.
The last couple of nights I haven't been sleeping very well. My stomach has just been aching for some reason. So it's been keeping me up at night. Hopefully the exhaustion I feel now will just knock me out tonight!

Wow, I am 6 1/2 months along! Yay!
We had a nice weekend. Dylan was away, so I got a lot of things done around the house that I needed to do. While I was out on Friday, I finally managed to find a cute outfit for the new little one. I wanted to find him at least one new outfit from us to bring him home in. Finally something caught my eye. I bought 2 of the same outfit. I got one in the newborn size and one in the next size up, just in case he is a bigger baby. Dylan was a tiny one, just over 6 pounds, but this one could be bigger! He sure feels like it!
As I was putting some things in the attic that Dylan is grown out of, I drug out some baby stuff. Its all sitting in our bedroom until I can get it into the baby's room. The baby's room will be the one Dylan is in now. Dylan will move to a bigger room as soon as we get some work done on it. I find myself getting anxious over that fact that the work isn't done, or isn't started! I kinda stew over it every now and then.
This weekend is Dylan's birthday. I can't believe that he will be 3 years old already. Why do they have to grow so fast? Nothing too big planned, just family for his party. Either way, as long as there is birthday cake, the boy will be more than happy. He is fixated on birthday cake for some reason. I will post pictures next week. Hopefully all goes well this weekend.
This little one moves so much! I swear he is much more active than Dylan was at this time. I wish I could see what he was doing in there. The way my belly moves and changes shape makes me wonder what he is up to. Constant rolling, and flipping. I don't remember Dylan moving so much. I am not complaining though. I love to feel them move. It is the best part of being pregnant.
