Labor was very fast.

Morgan Jean Hust arrived 15 days before her due date on October 15, 2010 at 3:59 a.m. weighing 6 pounds, 11 ounces and 21 inches long.

Things were going well for the first month and a half.

But now we have been in the hospital for 16 days, had one surgery and awaiting 2 more.

I am now 34 weeks along in my pregnancy.  I was having contractions all day all day yesterday, none today though.  I had my routine doctor appointment today and asked her to check.  I am already dilated 2 cm and 50-75% effaced.  I am also measuring big at 37 weeks so if she were to wait until the full 40 weeks she would be born big like Mitchell (8 lbs. 7oz.).  From the last ultrasound she looked chunky and you could see that she has a lot of hair!  I am very excited and can't wait to meet her!

Baby Bump

I am currently reading a friend's blog about their journey through IVF and infertility.  I am sitting here with tears in my eyes as it reminds me of the emotional roller coaster that we went through during this process.

Therefore, I feel it necessary to again thank God again for my precious babies including the little one who is constantly moving in my belly.  I do not take being pregnant for granted.  I know all too well how much of an amazing gift it is.

4K Update

When Cameron got off the bus today and I asked him how school was, he said "no throw toys".

So when his teacher called a few minutes later I wasn't surprised.

Apparently, during his session with the speech therapist today he continuously threw his toys and thought it was very funny.  This has always been Cameron's way of testing the water (it is a new speech therapist).  A time out was given, however that doesn't really phase him - she said he was just kind of hanging out.  We talked about some possible solutions and will keep in contact about it.

She also had good news - he went potty at school!  Also, this evening he went up to Dave and said he had to go potty and went #2 on the potty!  Cameron has been doing very well with potty training.  When there is a little more consistency, especially with him telling us he has to go, I will put him in underwear.  I do have high hopes that he will be completely trained before the baby comes.

He also did very well with helping during the hello song and other scheduled activities.

I am very proud of him and, despite throwing his toys today, know he is going to do very well in his 4K classroom this year!

Opinions Please

Cameron starts 4K tomorrow at the same elementary school where he was in EC. He is going to be fully included in a "typical" classroom and pulled out for therapies.

I just got a message from Cameron's EC teacher who will be helping out in his classroom this year asking me if I wanted her to talk to the classroom about what makes Cameron "special". She indicated that last year they had a little girl who was visually impaired and a little boy who was significally autistic.  Telling the classroom about their differences helped everyone understand and help out if necessary. However, other than being very tiny and his speech a little delayed Cameron is pretty typical.

Although I want the other students to understand I also don't want him to be thought of as different (not yet anyway). The teacher said this in her message that she didn't think it was necessary but wanted to get my opinion.

I would love to get everyone's opinions on this.
