36 weeks - 28 days to go

I had another ultrasound today. Our "little" girl is measuring at 7lbs 2 oz already. She is not so little which is probably a huge indication of why i'm so uncomfortable. I have only gained 16 pounds and she is 7 of it - that's just crazy! Because of her size i'm quite sure I will only go 38 or 39 weeks. Not sure if i'll be able to get her out if I go to my due date and I sure do not want a C-Section! So we could be meeting our little girl in just 14 days at the earliest. She has not dropped yet so that's good as she needs to stay cooking for at least 2 more weeks. I'm really getting excited to meet my daughter and to finally hold her.

I also met with my new boss today. She said I could take as much time off as I needed as family is number one. How cool is she? I'm SO happy to be working for a female, what a difference.... Since I will most likely go early though, i'll still be able to spend 8 weeks with her. Pretty cool.

Exciting News!!!

I'm really happy to announce that I received a promotion at work! Who knew you could get promoted when you are 35 weeks pregnant? I'm going to now be a Financial Analyst for the Hospital here in Sioux Falls. I'm currently working as an accountant for the Network which is all the small hospitals outside of Sioux Falls. The SF Hospital is the heart of Sanford so it's a totally different level. This job is finally going to offer me some challenges and new adventures and is a huge move in my career! I finally feel my career is back on track after moving twice and having Rylan. However.... The sad news is I will not be taking off 12 weeks to spend with my daughter. I have not discussed the date i'll be coming back to work with my new boss but i'm pretty sure it will have to be at the beginning of January. Therefore putting her in daycare when she is 6-7 weeks old. Sad but it's what i have to do! I'm very happy with this change in my life, it was much needed!

Big Boy!!!

Rylan is becoming such a big boy. First he has started potty training himself, he goes everyday in the potty. He is very interested in the big boy potty! One night he went pee twice and poop. I had no expectations of him potty training before he was two but i'll do whatever he wants! He has also started to do it at daycare!

Just last night we were all hanging out and Rylan was jumping off the couch unto the pillows on the floor. All of a sudden he starts saying... Five... Six...Seven... Eight... Nine... Ten and then he jumps. Casey and I looked at each other surprised as heck - I said "Is he counting" and Casey said "it sure sounds like it"... Rylan kept doing it over and over. We thought he couldn't count past two and now out of no where it's all the way to ten. I'm pretty sure we can thank daycare for this one!
