More good news!

Wednesday Corbin went up to Children's for his monthly inhibitor level check. I was hoping they would be lower but trying not to get my hopes up. Thursday we got the news his levels went down by about half! I am so excited they seem to be dropping quickly, but it also makes me a little nervous about the next step of actually getting rid of the inhibitor.

That still seems like it will be a long time from now, probably because of the more pressing issue of baby coming in just a few more weeks! Nesting is starting to set in, wanting to get everything cleaned up and ready. Been fighting the urge to get his clothes out washed and put away, not sure where they will go just yet. So much organizing and rearranging to be done. Good thing this week is spring break, I should have some extra time to get some things ready. And of course I'll have extra hands around to help out! I'm not sure the family understands what I have in store for them. Wish me luck!

Road Trip!

With just a little over a month until we welcome our newest addition we have a few things we need to get done. One of the fun things is a little family tradition we have, making a gift from the big sibs to their new baby. So, off to Kansas City we go!

After a quick trip to USA Baby for a sit and stand stroller it's on to Oak Park Mall and Build a Bear!

Don't we all look so excited about our new ride! Well, this mom is pretty excited! 

Picking out a bear for our new brother. Grandma Karen and Aunt Cindy were able to join us! Believe it or not we all agreed on one and we don't have any duplicate bears!

This is probably my favorite part. Each kid gets their own heart to put in the bear, the staff has always been great about us taking so many hearts for one bear! We followed all the directions, warming the heart, hugging it, and finally giving it a kiss and making a wish for our new baby!

Everyone got a turn to wash the bear before the hard part....picking out clothes!

Corbin likes his new ride and gave the bear lots of snuggles! 

We ended our visit at Oak Park Mall with a ride on the Carousel. Thanks Aunt Cindy! 

This is what it looked like when we finally made it home! So tired! It was a quick trip and we weren't able to catch up with any of our fantastic friends that live in KC, but I was able to cross a couple of items off my pre-baby to get list!
