Well, it's about 9 a.m. on Thursday. Madeline came into my room around 2 a.m. again. Luckily enough for me, she went back to sleep on her mattress within an hour. Aiden slept all through the night, as usual. Both are strangely in a good mood this morning. We decided to have today as our lounge day. We are all wearing our pajamas and cuddling on the couch. Of course, they are watching Dora...I swear, If I hear we did it one more time, I may discontinue my cable. Of course, I get lucky enough to be on "vacation" when Maddy starts getting sick. I noticed her nose running yesterday with a slight cough. Today she's coughing more, only time will tell if she is going to get real sick. I'm thinking this time may go different since she just got some steroid shots about a month ago. Well, I can hope right? Aiden of course if just fine today in his army pajamas. I am a little worried about Aiden. He seems as though he's not eating much, and he seems thinner. Jon was always very skinny growing up. He was so skinny, you looked fragile. I worry that may happen with Aiden, but I hope not. I don't want him to be fat either, but I can only watch and see. Aiden has been more active too, so that could be why he seems thinner, or maybe he's just getting taller! He's been weirdly attached to me...he doesn't want to stay at daycare, nor let me leave. Maybe he is just acting weird...who knows with these kids anymore.
Nick and Twyla have their first ultrasound today, which she's already about 4 months along from what the doctor says. I'm so excited to find out what he's having, I sure hope they can tell today, that would be awesome! I guess the Army is letting her take a honorable discharge, because their team is leaving to Afghanistan soon, and she can't fly over there being pregnant. I guess I'll just have to wait and see what they say later.
Oh man, I can't believe it's September already. I am excited to have another baby, yet very nervous at the same time. I think if Maddy were less hyper and impulsive it wouldn't be so bad. I have to keep a constant eye on her, or she may cut her hair off, slice her finger off, run out into traffic, or worse. I get so nervous about her somedays, I can only hope that maybe the school will call me back and tell me they can start working with her again. I'm hungry, but don't know what for. I'm sick of cereal, and yogurt. Thankfully I can go pick up some fruit today. My hernia was huge this morning when I got up. I'm starting to get nervous about it...I mean when my maternal fetal specialist scanned it, it didn't look like it was at the dangerous point yet, but then again, having a part of the intestine stick out of your pelvic region isn't always the prettiest site either, and it HURTS! My gosh...I never thought it would but it does now. I'm thinking it's because the baby is growing too, and the added pressure probably doesn't help too much. I have my next growth scan next week so hopefully I will hear good news. Then next week the baby and I have our next specialty scan and to check all baby's organs again and etc. So, again, hopefully good news will come of that!
