Life is good, still spending a lot of time with my daughter Leanna, usually 5-6 days a week which has been fun. She's 17 weeks pregnant now and is already showing and feeling baby Daniel kick around. She's had a lot of ultrasounds due to an earlier pregnancy that failed so I have gotten to see the baby quite a bit. Her next ultrasound is June 23rd.
This baby is going to be spoiled rotten, he already has a TON of baby stuff and we're not sure he's even going to be able to wear all the clothes people have gotten him. We were out shopping today when a lady behind us told us that her daughter gave birth to a still born baby boy just 3 weeks ago... her first grandchild. I got a little panicked and quickly told my daughter how rare that is. I felt so bad for the lady I wanted to hug her, which is unlike me but it was so sad, she had a bag of baby clothes that she was returning for her daughter. I lost a baby boy at 5 months so I can relate some, the heartache is like a real life nightmare & I would be devastated if something happened to my baby grandson. I am so attached already.
I know my daughter worries some but I am glad her doctor is so awesome and checks on Daniel all the time & he is really doing excellent.
My daughter is also doing well, the morning sickness has passed but she gets tired quickly. Her and I are taking my little nephews (David & Jaxon) to the zoo in a couple weeks and I am hoping she does okay with that. June 26th is her 21st birthday and I am getting her the infant car seat she wants. I am a huge advocate for infant/toddler car seat safety and looked up the safest car seat available according to Consumer Reports and am going with the one they listed... it's $250 which threw me for a loop but oh well, at least he'll be safe & it's the one she wanted anyway.
My step dad is home from the hospital now and has a daily hospice nurse who my family has fallen in love with, she's great with him. Baby Daniel is named after him so we're all hoping he sticks around long enough to meet his little namesake.
Well, I am off to bed, just wanted to update everyone. :-)
