A much needed update

-Michael was on the radio yesterday morning! They started talking about whether or not it was weird to date someone with the same name as your mother. Considering that both of my husbands ex wives have the same name as his mother, he just had to call in. LOL It was hilarious.

-Ava cut her 6th tooth today. Bottom right. She had 2 poop explosions yesterday and one massive one today that was on the kitchen floor as well as me! LOVELY. She wouldn't eat much today either, but other than that is doing well.

-She says cracker now, shows you please in sign language on command, knows where her nose is, and bats her eyes at you when you ask her to show you "pretty eyes". She is getting so big and SO fun! She picks up on so much now and learns new things everyday. I absolutely love it!

-I had my first doctors appointment. I am 16 weeks and 4 days and our due date is September 17th! Michael, Ava and I waited for quite a while, but it was well worth it! We were able to get an ultrasound, see our baby, hear the heartbeat AND find out the sex!

It's A Boy!!!

There was definitely NO denying that! He takes after his Daddy! ;) Today was a wonderful day!

-My Mom came into town to finalize the closing on her house, so Amber, Ava and I met her and my step dad for lunch. It was wonderful to see them and visit for a while. We are going to CS this weekend and I am really looking forward to that!

-Ava is having another birthday party on Saturday at my mom's house. Spoiled little girl!

-I have made a couple of new friends, ones that I have known for a while but are getting closer to now and I love it! I love making new friends, especially ones that I know will be around for a while :)

All that being said, life is going great over here. I really couldn't ask for more. Michael and I have reached a point in our relationship (for a long time now) where we have become more and more of a team. We are partners, we work together, we lean on each other and I love it. I am happy, he is happy, we are happy.

Having Tyler here with us has been great. It's hard work, trying to get him caught up in school and so on, but he is doing well. This weekend was his first weekend at his mother's and we missed him tons!

New bean (we haven't chosen a name yet) is doing great. I can feel my little guy moving around in there now and it makes me smile. Tyler knows we are pregnant, has for some time now. As far as Elise goes, we decided that we wanted to wait until I went to my first doctor's appointment, to make sure that all was well, before breaking the news to her. She has been having some behavioral problems at school and so forth and to be honest with you, I really didn't want another excuse for Melanie to use as far as Elise is concerned. We felt like she was blaming us for things going on with Elise when Ava was first born. Second of all, I wanted to get past the "scare" of a possible miscarriage, etc.

So we haven't told Elise yet. Now, whether or not Melanie has? I don't know. Elise made a comment this weekend when she was here, saying "Your boobies are big and so is your belly. You have 2 babies in there this time or what?" Michael was standing there when she said it and gave me a look like "what the heck?". I asked her who told her that and she said "No one" and left it at that. So I don't know if Melanie told her or if she was just saying that cause she noticed. If she told her, I think that's messed up, considering that she told me, more times that once, that it was our place to tell her. But in all actuality, I guess it really doesn't matter either way.

We are planning on sitting down and talking with Elise the next time we have her, so we will see how that goes.

I have been wondering about you girl!
Thank you for the update!
I can't imagine what it's like to be a step parent except that I had a step dad who I wasn't close with til I was out of high school and the house and now my son is in the same boat--but he gets along with Danny. The important thing is to put your husband before all the children and not let anything get between you-be a united front!
Congrats on having a boy! They are so fun !!
