So happy...

Damien came home last night and I am SO thankful for that. Fortunately I've felt so much better today than I did on Wednesday and even yesterday, but it was nice knowing he was in town just in case.

In the mornings Deacon usually wakes up and crawls into bed with us around 6:00 a.m. (I have no clue how we ended up with such a morning baby) and for the past few days he obviously just gets in bed with me... well this morning he was really shocked and quite excited to see that he had to crawl over daddy to get to me :)

And I'll tell you what- bedtime routine is twice as crazy when Damien is here... I don't know what it is about the two of them together, but I'll tell you what, I was constantly saying, "quiet voices!... gentle hands!... please calm down!... make good decisions!"- and I wasn't just saying it to Deacon! But that's ok... at least it is for tonight.

In other baby news... I don't think I mentioned in my previous update that my doctor has me doing non-stress tests now two times a week until the baby is born. It's standard for gastric bypass patients as well as babies who are measuring small... hooray for us. So today was my first NST- I was told it could last anywhere from 20-60 minutes. Well, wouldn't you know it, this baby put on quite the show and did all he needed to do in less than 20 minutes (though we had to stay hooked up the entire 20 minutes)- his crazy movements really paid off today, and the nurse could not stop laughing at how much he moved around.

Oh yuk... the bi-weekly non-stress tests. I did that with the twins too. Remember Ava would NEVER cooperate? I was always at the hospital for 2 hours... sometimes more... I am so glad baby boy is MUCH more cooperative!! Glad you are feeling better. :)
