Had another weekly Dr. appointment for The Biscuit. Everything looked great. I am one centimeter dilated and 70% effaced. Really it means nothing as far as progress, but I think it is cool because I was exactly the same at my 36 week appointment with Ryder. I also went another 5 weeks before I went into labor.
Here I am with Ryder at 36 weeks. And, there is no amount of money that could get me to take a bare belly shot now.
We have another male headband lover in the world, and he's cuter.
I don't know if I have had a more enjoyable morning than this one. It was a much needed bright spot in the midst of a very fussy period for Ryder. I'm thinking teething and a small cold. Thankfully, this headband took all his pains away. And Ryder put the headband on all by himself which made him all the happier.
1 to go.
Time until Wednesday, July 28, 2010 EST
Can you tell we're ready?
I was trying to help Brandon better understand exactly how I feel throughout the day. He was adamant we take a picture.
However, I think his belly is lighter.
We took some bread to feed the birds at the park
At first Ryder just wanted to eat the bread himself. Mind you, he won't touch the bread at home if we give it to him. I hope that he shares better with his little brother.
how big you get.
how many siblings come after you.
how much you can do on your own.
You'll always be my sweet baby boy.
I was watching Dylan the other day, and he laid down in Ryder's crib for his nap. I thought Ryder could just lay down after Dylan woke up. It was very obvious that was not the case. In desperation I tried to lay Ryder down in Baby Bean's bassinet. I was sure it wouldn't work, but within seconds Ryder was fast asleep.
Ryder took a trip to a public pool today. HE LOVED IT! I couldn't believe the difference from a few months ago when he was cool as a cucumber about the pool.
The water in these fountains was as cold as ice water. I am not exaggerating.
When Christy snapped this picture I said that I was pretty sure I have the exact same picture from a year ago. Sure enough. (FYI: If your hair was below your chin you had to wear a swim cap)
These are not the same picture just cropped differently. I bet he didn't move for ten straight minutes while he was watching the lawn guys do their thing. Soon enough, buddy, you can mow our grass.
Here's how our night at the park went.....
look cool for all the ladies.
His other pick up methods included schmoozing from afar and
What are we going to do when he is sixteen???
I was really hoping to have a 3-D picture of Baby Bean for the blog tonight since I had an ultrasound today. However, the little guy was so low into my pelvis they couldn't get any shots of his face, so you'll have to settle for a belly shot. The ultrasound tech kept commenting on how low he was and that I must be so uncomfortable. It was nice to know there was a reason for all my whining discomfort. I was sure to relay that fact to my dear hubby. The Biscuit was right on track growth wise. Everything looked great. Crazy to think there are only 6 weeks until his due date. That's 42 days! Let's hope he is a little more prompt than his brother.
So the other day I posted a video of Ryder watching his friend. I thought or I guess wanted to think it was his friend that drew him to the video. After yesterday I am thinking we just have a mini reggae lover. I was on the computer. We were listening to Pandora, and a Bob Marley song came on. I glanced over to see this. Ryder, your Auntie Charissa will be so proud.
There is a lot of excitement for the World Cup in the Rodriguez household. My dad gave us a booster, so we are able to pick up ABC and watch the game from home. We are loving it. I think Ryder sensed our excitement and would not go down for a nap. Here are the boys enjoying US vs. England game.
Here's our set up 'cause we're classy like that. :)
The last time we watched a World Cup game Brandon and I were in Jamaica on our honeymoon. Time flies for sure, and although we loved watching the games in Jamaica I think I had more fun today. Sappy but true.
