Sarah got into town Friday morning and we immediately went to Chick-fil-A for breakfast...YUMMY!!! Maddox loved sitting with his aunt Sarah and eating almost ALL of her breakfast!! We then ran some errands....picked up Paxton's new swing (Thanks again Dennis and Murlon (grandma and grandpa voda) for the awesome new swing...Sarah and I put it together Friday evening and I just love it...I can't wait to see our little one snoozing away in that precious swing). We then took a nap and then ventured to Target followed by a yummy dinner at Rosa's, a trip to babies-r-us, ice cream at Baskin Robbin's, another trip to Wal-Mart to find Maddox a boy baby doll to "take care of" (he loves to feed the baby, burp the baby, rock the baby and put the baby to bed.....I am hoping to help ease him into the realization that Paxton is a person, a little baby, that will need to be taken care of and not just this big basketball looking thing in Mommy's belly). Gosh, Maddox was such a trooper and he and Sarah had a great time together....thanks again Sarah for all your help especially loading and unloading him in and out of the car...you were a lifesaver!!!
Not the greatest of pictures of me...but here we are sharing some pink bubble gum ice cream!! What a treat to have this special time with my little man and best friend!!

And finally, a little Paxton update!! We are currently 35 weeks (I will be 36 weeks on Thursday). We had another ultrasound on Monday and they were all very pleased with the growth of the little man...he is now in the 37th percentile and is weighing in at 5 pounds 12 ounces...they say he will probably be about the same size Maddox was (7lbs4oz) and everything is looking great!! Yippee...we are very thankful for a healthy baby!! The doctor told me that she wants me to make it through the weekend still taking my meds to stop the contractions (which I have been having a TON of lately) and come Monday I am to stop taking them and start allowing my body to take over naturally. I am so happy for this news...not only because the meds make me feel so icky, but because we have made it so far since I first had to start taking them in order to keep myself from going into preterm labor as early as 24 weeks gestation!!! The doctor also said that I was looking good...blood pressure was great, no swollen feet, gaining enough weight....AND we set the induction date for May 5th....so, unless I go into labor naturally, we will be have a Cinco De Mayo baby...everyone get ready to party!!
