How Far Along: 14 weeks
I also was telling her how INCREDIBLY itchy I've been so she had some blood drawn to run a few labs, she said it could just be the dry, hot weather but that it could be something pregnancy related - primarily an elevated bile acid level? IDK, but I'd sure love it if she found a reason for my itchy's! It's driving me nutso! And her scale showed I'd only gained a pound since my last appointment 4 weeks ago so that was nice, with Jack I think the scale went up about 4 pounds (at least) every time I was there! :-)

Way to go Jack!
When I went to see Dr. Shaw (baby doctor), she looked in my file and told me that I weighed at 10 weeks with BS2 the same as I weighed with Jack at 32 weeks! SCARY! So the plan is that I will hopefully even out and not gain much weight (maybe 10 pounds, 15 max) over the course of this pregnancy, it just really sucks being so heavy!

We had our first appointment with Dr. Shaw on Friday, July 15th and everything looks great! We had about 1,000 tubes of blood drawn, a pelvic exam, and an ultrasound! This time baby looked more like a gummy bear, where as Jack looked like a tiny shrimp the first time we saw him!
Baby's heartrate was a healthy and soaring 178 beats/minute! I've been feeling pretty good for the most part, just extremely tired and food just doesn't sound good most days - but I can't complain too much b/c I know it could be much worse for sure!
Baby's official due date is February 9th 2012!

Jack has been spending a lot of time at his Papa and Meme's house on the weekends so that Chris and I can try to finish getting our house in order, I'd say we are 85% of the way there. I finally got some pictures up and put around, but I know everything will be moved around 100 million times due to my OCD-ness! I got so mad at Chris once he made me put out pictures b/c he knows I HAVE TO move them 100 times before I decide to leave them alone. I'm not talking move them across the room or to another part of the house, I'm talking moving them centimeters! :-) Chris thinks it's funny, me - not so much!
Last weekend Chris and I did take a mini-vacation to Branson, just the two of us! It was HOT! Chris shopped til he dropped and I complained about it being hot! Chris did buy my a new Coach purse, so that was GREAT! We shopped, slept, ate, and swam - it was nice! No schedule, no places we had to be - NICE!
Jack is talking more and more every week, it's so cute! I'm starting to get concerned though b/c he only wants to do 3 activities/play - #1 Play Ball (baseball), #2 Ping (swing), and #3 Jump (on the trampoline). He has ZERO interest in ANYTHING else and it drives me nutso! I'm sure it's a phase and it will pass, hopefully sometime soon! I'm so sick of playing ball! :-)

Jack is right on track with all of his development which is awesome! He had to have his finger pricked to do the lead test again and 1 shot in his left leg, but he did really good!
Not much else to report!

I met a couple of our neighbors yesterday and one of them, Casey, she is and her family just moved in directly behind us about a month or so ago and she said the same thing - that it was just now starting to feel like their "home". So hopefully in another 3.5 weeks I'll feel the same way. Casey is also pregnant and is due in August with a little girl, they also have a 2.5 year old, Crew, so I'm hoping him and Jack become fast friends!
I also met Annie, her and her husband, Ryan, have an almost 4 year old, Ace, and an 18 month old, Jackson...so at least we have nice, young neighbors with kids around Jack's age!
The other big item weighing heavy on my mind is George. He has not adjusted well at all since Charlie went to live with Chris' brother and his wife. George CANNOT stand to be alone, at all and he gets so high strung that when you finally do get home he is "tinkling" like a puppy and it's completely unacceptable. If we are home with him he is great, no problems - the minute we leave him he is whining, crying and barking so bad it breaks my heart. I really think he needs to go to a home where there is another dog to keep him company or he needs to live with like an older couple or man or lady that are home all day, but where do you find that?!
I've ran that thought of taking him to the humane society here in Pitt b/c they are a no kill shelter, but then I picture him sitting in a cage - alone, crying and I can't do it...now I'm crying! That's all for now...

Jack and Bella have been going to daycare together for about 16-17 months (since Bella was 6 weeks old!) and they have the stereotypical love/hate relationship! They remind me of elementary kids on a playground, where the boys are mean and tease the girls they like!? Well that's them, except Bella gets her digs in on Jack too!
One minute, these two will be pushing each other down, tackling each other, and "yelling" at each other...the next minute they will be "making out" in a corner! When Tonya first mentioned them making out I thought she was kidding...she.was.not.kidding!
Jack and Bella are both really fond of Tonya's storm door that looks outside, they love standing there! In fact, this is where most fights begin b/c at their age they don't share well! Recently, the storm door has also become their "love nest"! Tonya said they will stand "making out" and hugging while they enjoy the outside scenery! "Making Out" consists of hugging each other and kissing - mouths open! Can.You.Believe.That? Disclaimer - No, Tonya does not encourage the kissing and does not allow the kissing to happen and stops them when it does happen!
Jack and Bella always give each other hugs and kisses before they leave daycare every day! So stinkin' cute!
Note: I just posted this and it's totally crummy format, I'm going to try once to make it look better and if it doesn't I apologize...
Boys are CRAZY or at least mine is!
He is a t-total brat! He whines and cries if he doesn’t get his way and enjoys multiple time out session every evening! And he is such a motha faker (while I was proofreading I almost deleted this b/c it might be blog inappropriate, but I left it b/c it's funny)! Like he will look to see if you are watching him and he will cry, if you look away he will stop, but the second you look back he is back to crying!
Last night he was in the tub and it was time to get out, here is our conversation:
Me: Jack, time to get out.
Me: Jack, come on let’s get out and get your diaper on.
Jack: NOOOOOO! NOOOOOO! NOOOOO! (never looking away from the picture he was drawing on the shower walls with his blue bath crayon)
Me: Jack, it’s time to get out. I’m going to count to 3… ONE
Jack: (interrupting my count) TTTTTWWWWOOOO (looking at me out the corner of his eye like the little devil man that he is)
Me: (flabbergasted that 1) he was being a brat, but 2) that he knew TWO came after ONE!) Jack, if you get out I’ll give you a piece of gum!?
Jack: (jumping up) GGGUUUUMMMM, GGGGUUUUMMM, GUM!
He is starting to talk up a storm like overnight – he added Tonya, Darin, Piper, Bella, Karlee, Meme, Papa, Coco, Kayla, and Baby K, and Jo (George) to his vocabulary. I think he has like 60-70 words now and he is starting to make more and more 2-4 word phrases!
He is a BIG help when he wants to be – he puts his shoes away every night and throws his dirty clothes in his hamper and dirty diapers in the trash. He puts away his laundry (socks only, but hey it’s a start), he loves to help clean up and put things away. He is also responsible for putting all his toys back in the basket at the end of the evening before bed!
Speaking of bed – we have finally (knock on wood) made it back to his own bed for the majority of the night! I also broke him of his cup/milk obsession in the middle of the night! There were nights he would wake up 3 times wanting MORE and MORE milk! WTH?
He has also decided that he is SCARED.TO.DEATH of the pheasant hanging on the kitchen wall that has been there since he was born. He will NEVER turn his back to it so when he walks by the like shuffles sideways never letting his eyes leave the pheasant like it’s going to jump off the wall and peck him to death! Ha! It’s funny!
He now drinks from a pop can or water bottle by himself and doesn’t spill it – big achievement! He also can be handed anything to eat and he can eat it by himself without leaving a food disaster in his midst!
He is still obsessed with balls, not his own balls (again probably inappropriate, but oh well), sports balls – baseballs, footballs, soccer balls, basketballs, golf balls! Looks like I might have to give in to the typicall sports themed big boy room when the time comes and those of you that know me know I.AM.NOT.HAPPY.ABOUT.THIS! I hate anything tyical, overdone, and baby/kid-ish...so we will see!
He is also obsessed with being OUTSIDE! Which I love, but sometimes is super annoying! He would always insist that Chris or I were outside as well, but just in the past month or so he will go out and wander around the back yard by himself (well, with the dogs) so that I can comfortably watch him from my view from the sofa! :-)
We go the end of the month for this 2 year – TWO.YEAR. – checkup so I’ll have all the stats then!

The ONE and ONLY picture of us from the entire weekend!
Candy Melt DOWN!
Check out my stud! He is so stinkin' cute!
And YES I'm biased, but I think you KNOW he is cute too!
