37 Weeks with Baby D {Early Term}

I learned something new at my check up today: 37 weeks is no long considered "full term" but "early term." I won't be considered full term until 38 weeks. However, if I were to go into labor today, they wouldn't do anything to stop it. But either way, we've made it to the safe zone and even though it could be a week or 3 weeks before baby, I'm getting really excited (and a little anxious) about meeting our little one.

Matt and I toured the hospital this weekend, bought a new car seat and finished the nursery. We're in the process of buying a new car, the few baby clothes I've bought are being washed as I type and I'm hoping to have us all packed and ready for the big day by tomorrow.

I'd say we're ready to do this baby thing!

35 Weeks with Baby D #3

Well friends, we are 35 weeks along with our third little one and I think I am finally starting to slow down. With a lot of our friends gearing up for back to school and summer winding down, we've spent a lot of time at home this week. Typically, I love to go and do, but just thinking about loading the kids up and getting out in the heat makes me tired and I'm learning to love our slow days spent together at home. 

I managed to give myself (and Addy) a pedicure the other day, but Addy refused a picture with me.

Being home more has also given me more time to work on the nursery. Things are finally starting to come together in there and after I get Matt's help hanging a few things up, it will be ready for baby. I'm looking forward to bringing our little one home to the same room that both his or her siblings have lived in and enjoyed. 

A blizzard because it's hot and messy shirt because I don't fit under the table. I seriously need a belly bib.

Speaking of siblings and rooms, the big kids are loving sharing a room and we've had a surprisingly smooth transition. Bedtime takes a little bit longer and we can often hear them talking to each other past bedtime, but Remi has given up his paci and is enjoying being a "big boy." We've made zero progress in the potty training department but that's ok. All in good time right?

With our due date getting closer and closer, I just keep dreaming about the day we will meet our little one, literally. I've been having so many random dreams about the baby. In one, we found out the gender but only told some people. It was a girl. In another, we had the baby, a boy, and then I completely forgot about it! Someone asked to see him and when I went to get him from his crib, he wasn't there. I had totally forgotten he was in the NICU. I woke up feeling so irresponsible and had to remind myself it was just a dream. But thankfully, crazy dreams are usually a sign of good sleep.

These last few weeks have gone by so fast and yet so slow! I can't believe in two weeks I will be full term. We'll see if this little one will be early like his sister or late like her brother.

Remington is Two Years Old

Remi is two! You can check out what we did to celebrate his birthday here.

Here are his stats:

AGE: 2 years old
WEIGHT: 28 pounds
FAVORITE FOOD: Meat of all kinds and spaghetti
FAVORITE TOY: It seems to change every week, but there is a tiny little ball that came from a gum ball machine at the Dentist and we seem to spend a lot of time looking for it for him. He also really loves his drill from Christmas and all the cars he got for his Birthday.
FAVORITE ACTIVITY: Riding his bike and playing trucks
SCARED OF: Dogs and snakes
Favorite Show: Mr. Peabody and Sherman
BEST FRIEND: Addy (of course) and then it's a tie between his cousins, Carter and Everett and his little friend, Juliette.
SILLY TENDENCY: He repeats everything like a little parrot, especially things his sister says. He rolls his rolls and other letters that don't need to be rolled.


"Momma, momma, momma… you know that song?"

"You see that cool trick?"

If you sing the lyrics: "Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful boy…." Remi will say:
"That Sherman!"

Remi Turns Two

Our little man turned two years old yesterday and we had the best day celebrating him. 

One of my favorite things about Remi's birthday this year was watching Addy love on him. She might have been more excited about his Birthday than he was. It was her suggestion to put candles in his pancakes and she would pump him up for each event happening that day.

Celebrations for Remi's birthday were a little thrown together this year. We've had quite a few things going on and my energy level has been a little low, but I'm so glad we didn't let it pass by without doing anything. 

I made arrangements last minute to meet some friends at the Spray Park for pizza and fun. It was busy and hot but if you can't tell by the pictures, I think he had fun.

For birthday dinner, we met Granmarie, Auntie Morgan, Carter and Everett at Zios for "getti." Remi had been talking about wearing a birthday hat all day so his sweet Dad picked some up on his way home as a little surprise. 

Remi loves his cousin Carter and was so excited to have him sit next to him at dinner.

I mean, check out this happy kid. He was so easy to please all day and loved being sung to.

Later that night, when he opened his gifts, he would rip open the paper and say "oh! I like it! Tank you, tank you, tank you!"

 What a joy to celebrate our little man. 
We are so thankful for him and his energetic, happy heart. 

And the celebration continues the next day. 

Love you Wemibird!

30 Weeks with Baby D #3

Tomorrow marks 31 weeks with Baby Danner Number 3. So I thought this would be a pretty good time to get my 30 week update posted. Better late than never right?

Im 30 weeks, 6 days pregnant with my 3rd child and my mind has gone to mush. In the words of my (almost) two year old: "I so tired." Trying to formulate sentences makes my head hurt, so I'll just leave you with these baby bump photos from the past month. There may be a few weeks missing because my midwife moved up my due date from September 28th to the 17th. Which means, I basically skipped two weeks of pregnancy! Of course, we all know that due dates don't really mean anything and that baby's come when they're ready but I like feeling like I'm a little bit farther along.

This babe already has a team of doctors taking care of it.

Thankful for some sweet quiet time by the river in downtown Vail. I want to go back.

Taking the Chair Lift up Copper Mountain. This was right before I dropped my water bottle and my sweet hubby rode back up to retrieve it for me.
