I haven’t updated on our family in a really long time. “Baby” J just turned 3, Baby L just turned 2 and we have baby #3 is on the way! J is so smart, he had a verbal delay and after 6 months of speech therapy with a WONDERFUL speech therapist instead of being behind, he was advanced!! His speech has continued to develop at lightning speed! He knows his colors and can say his alphabet. He can count to 15, when he doesn’t get stuck on 11, lol. (7 8 9 10 11, 7 8 9…) He absolutely loves his little sister and the new baby on the way. He loves his four wheelers and tractors. We still have a few SPD issues, but he is doing so much better!!! He is also mostly daytime potty trained! He is still a pretty tiny kid, he weighs 27 pounds! But he is healthy and the doctor has finally given him a clean bill of health!
Baby L is also extremely smart. She is speaking in several word sentences, and loves to follow her brother around. She is my strong-willed and independent child. She knows no fear and jumps headfirst into just about everything. That is, everything she wants to do. If we want her to do something and she doesn’t want to, she will absolutely refuse to do it! She is a stubborn little girl!! She is also really tiny, she is 22 pounds, but just like her brother she is healthy as can be!
As I have mentioned, I am pregnant with baby #3. It has been a long road. It started in September of last year. I got a positive pregnancy test. The next day I started bleeding and I lost the baby before I could even process that I was pregnant. Fast forward to November. I had a doctor appointment and I told him that I felt pregnant, but I was positive that I wasn’t. He tested my thyroid and I ended up being diagnosed with Graves Disease. I told my husband that day that we couldn’t get pregnant because it could effect the baby. Fast forward another 2 weeks and even on medication I was feeling pretty miserable, so I took a pregnancy test and it was positive! I have had a rough pregnancy. I have had some anxiety issues and have been sick a lot. However, I am so happy! We are expecting another little girl, Baby E. Jackson just adores her! I am 36 weeks and she is due August 22nd.
