Vocab Explosion

Miss Hadley has had an explosion. No, not the diaper sort of explosion - that's never really been her style - but an explosion of words. Every day she's been busting out new words and new phrases which is so much fun to hear. I love her little voice and when it's saying words I can actually understand it just melts my heart.

So, here's a quick rundown of some of her new words. I'm sure I won't get all of them but here is what I've got off the top of my head:

  1. Shoe
  2. Mimi - this means Mickey :)
  3. Piya - this means Pirate aka Jake & the NeverLand Pirates
  4. Did it!
  5. Made it!
  6. Buckle
  7. Seat
  8. Sit or Sit down
  9. Baaaa - sheep sound
  10. Moooooo - she tends to think everything is a cow ;)
  11. Stairs - sounds a bit more like star though
  12. Hat
  13. Baby
  14. Box
  15. Piece - she usually says this while playing with brother's Thomas puzzle ;)
  16. Mum-Mum
  17. Peesh - this is please & while she's known how to sign it for a long time she's now saying it at the same time too and it's too cute :)
  18. Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeee - she loves to say this when we're going up or down hills in the car or when she's running around the house. 
  19. Lucky - her & Elliot have a big bouncing horse named Lucky. It's also the name of the dog at my parent's house.
  20. Eat - she also does the sign with this one consistently.
  21. Run
  22. Ni-Ni - this means night night & she tells us and her brother every night :)
  23. Yeah
  24. Mine
  25. March
  26. Nose

She has such a big personality! She loves to put hats on or make anything into a hat - we find clothes, food, toys, etc. on her head and just chuckle. She has this cheesy grin that gets you every single time. Hadley absolutely hates diaper changes and will run and "hide" when the word diaper is mentioned. Her favorite word to say is "Nooooooo" and shake her head while saying it. She definitely has some pretty strong opinions on things these days!

27 Weeks!

Our little sweet P's are growing, growing, growing! We had another growth scan (these happen every 3-4 weeks) yesterday. It's always so much fun to see the girls and get an estimate on their size. Both of them were bopping all around while we were trying to get their measurements. Needless to say it was really hard to get any good pictures of them! Their heartbeats registered at 154 & 150 which is perfect. Baby A is measuring right on at 27 weeks 1 day with an estimated weight of 2lb. 6oz. Baby B is measuring about a week behind with an estimated weight of 2lb. 2oz. Baby B's head was measuring smaller which we think threw off the measurements. Still, it's only a 12% growth discrepancy and as long as it is under 20-25% we aren't worried.

Baby A had previously been in a head down position. Both babies are now breech with their butts toward the exit. We were able to see Little Miss A doing some practice swallowing and then stretching her legs alllllll the way out. While it was really sweet to see I couldn't help but think that her poor sister was getting really cramped! We were also able to see a couple contractions which just look strange on the ultrasound!

In other news from my appointment yesterday I haven't gained any weight, my blood pressure was 134/78, my cervix is measuring over 6.5 cm long and is closed (yay!). My fundal height is 38cm which means I'm measuring full term and I can definitely feel it. I get worn out a lot faster and I just plain hurt everywhere. At the end of some days it hurts just to lift my leg to get into bed and forget trying to roll over and move once I'm in bed - lol. I also talked to the doctor about a couple episodes of seeing spots I've had in the past week. The worry is pre-eclampsia but since I don't have any other symptoms and they went away he's not worried. If they happen again and I'm not able to get rid of them then we would worry. He did tell me not to get any ideas about an early eviction for these ladies. Basically he told me to just keep doing what I'm doing and chugging along but that he would never wish twins on anyone - haha.
