Drama ensues

Yesterday, Brendan amazed, astonished & confounded me by not needing a single diaper change for just over 22 hours. Really had me worried! At 9:00 last night he finally went, went again 5 minutes later, again an hour later, woke up wet in the middle of the night (rare these days) and woke up wet this morning. Guess I can stop worrying, lol.
About 6 am, Brendan rolled out of the king sized bed we sleep in up here. He not only landed on the hard wooden floor (what little there is between the bed and the wall), but also smack on top of an emergency lantern- a heavy metal thing. Oh the drama! He was full of Swiper the Fox madness and after he calmed down all I could get him to tell me about where he hurt was that his nose was hot. He went back to sleep MUCH faster than me!

15w0d. Having a good time up here in north Texas. Since we didn’t get snow, I wish we were having warmer weather though. Had a great day shopping yesterday at Grapevine Mills mall. I bought this clever cupcake stand for Bren’s birthday party, a polo shirt, pants & belt outfit for Bren for the wedding on Saturday for $6 plus 2 maternity shirts also for $6 each. We stopped in at Baby Depot so I could show MIL the pink crib bedding I like. I was so surprised to see that their store has a ton more baby clothes than ours does and it is much less expensive! I bought 2 baby footless gowns for $6 and then… well, found a girl’s newborn outfit I couldn’t live without. It’d be perfect for a coming home outfit!! I realize I may be giving it away, lol, but I hope that’s not the case. 3 weeks exactly til the ultrasound! I’ll post a pic of the outfit when I get home.
I felt the baby rolling over this morning when I was still lying in bed!! If you take your fist and wrap your other hand around it, then roll your fist about a quarter of a turn- that’s what it felt like. Three times! Much more than just a fluttery feeling and the top was about 2 inches below my belly button. Higher than I expected. The baby is the size of an orange now, head to butt. I am millimeters from being too big for the last of my “transition” pants.
Brendan has said a few new things recently. The funniest thing is flashlight. His version sounds more like “fish pipe”. Haha. He also told his Mimi TWICE what sounds tremendously like “stupid, stupid, stupid!” I am not convinced that is what he is really saying even if it sounds like it because I have no idea where he could have heard it! He is loving the cats up here and a couple even lay on the bed and let him pet them. He has been piling toys up in his baby bathtub and driving them all around. Odd things end up in that tub, including every chapstick he can find. Have I ever mentioned his version of bridge sounds just like the B word? Haha.
Thank you, honey for winning that maternity bathing suit off of Ebay for me! Now your mom can take us to the beach in June! We won’t need a beach ball! 😉 I can’t wait to see you tomorrow. Don’t forget the wedding clothes!
