Eating Camp Day 23 1/2

The Kan Man is set to go home TOMORROW!!! We are THRILLED with this and all of us are VERY READY. He is now bored, fussy, bossy, and DONE with this place. He is doing great in his meals and his drinking is on a slow, but steady climb up. We're trying just 4 meals a day instead of 5 (more on this later) so we'll see how his calorie count is with just 4.

The last 3 nights he has slept ALL NIGHT and I've had to wake him up in the morning to get him ready. I guess he's finally settling in to sleeping here. Nice timing.

One thing that has kept him happy (which has been pretty hard these days, especially since its been rainy and he hasn't been able to walk outside with mom) are these stickers. Our awesome friend Holly (mommy of Kan's lady Addison) sent these window gel sticker things to decorate your window to look like a pumpkin. klp doesn't take too much interest in making it look like a pumpkin, but he LOVES sticking these on the window.




THE BIG 3-0!!!!!! We made it to our BIG goal of 30 weeks!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I went to the Dr. here yesterday and everything looked great. Baby measured perfect and healthy and about 3 1/2lbs! My cervix got an A+ again, its is perfect!! All these things show that we should make it to our next BIG goal of 32 weeks. So very very very thankful. And large as you will see in the pic below!

I am carrying this baby much like I did the twins. High and pointy! :) My belly button is now flat and I think I'm about the size I was when I delivered Kanyon and Jayde, but I'm anxious to look at my chart when I go back to my Dr.
I'll update tomorrow or sometime when we get home. I'm going to have A LOT of adjusting to do. In many MANY ways, this whole eating thing is going to make my life much harder and will require a lot of my time, but we'll figure it out.
Maybe the most exciting thing is that we are making it back just in time for the EAST TEXAS YAMBOREE!!! We will get to be with lots of family and enjoy all of the festivities of the YAM in Gilmer!! YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!

You know you are ready to get home when you are counting half days! So glad that you are almost done and get back to a more normal life. You do not look huge! You look so cute, and I am so glad you're already at 30 weeks with no problems. Praying for a full term baby!

First of all, you look SO cute!! Yes, you do look a lot like you did with the twins. I remember seeing a picture of you! I know you have to feel so relieved to have made it to 30 weeks, and I'm praying you make it to 42!! Okay, maybe just 40 for your sake. :) AND, so glad to hear that Kanyon has done so well and I guess this means you're home now that it's Friday! I can't imagine how happy you both were to get home. Man, that's a long time!! Anyways, keep updating with all the details on Kanyon and your pregnancy. I gotta know how my Phillips Phamily is doing!
